Michael Moore’s New Year’s Resolution: "Stop Saying, 'I Support the Troops.' I Don't"

Michael Moore’s New Year’s Resolution: "Stop Saying, 'I Support the Troops.' I Don't" By Noel Sheppard Created 01/01/2013 - 1:40pm

Schlockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore has some peculiar New Year’s resolutions that he published at the Huffington Post Monday evening.

At number four was “Stop saying, ‘I support the troops.’ I don't. I used to.”

“I understand why so many enlisted after 9/11,” Moore continued. “Sadly, many of them were then trapped and sent off to invade Iraq. I felt for all of them. I understood those who joined because of a lousy economy. But at some point all individuals must answer for their actions, and now that we know our military leaders do things that have nothing to do with defending our lives, why would anyone sign up for this rogue organization?”

Isn’t that special?

Then Moore, possibly realizing how inflammatory this was, added a fifth resolution:

Apologize for No. 4. I have enormous respect for anyone who would offer to sacrifice their life to defend my right to live. Is there any greater gift one can give another? It's not the troops' fault they're sent to invade other countries for dubious reasons and outright lies. It's OUR responsibility to prevent this, to elect representatives who believe in peace, and to only put our troops in harm's way when it's absolutely necessary. My uncle was killed in World War II. Today would have been his 90th birthday. My dad still misses him. Our family has served this country in the military since the Revolutionary War. None of them watch Fox News.

This guy’s a sketch, isn’t he?

Yes, we must think of others.

Besides when the SHTF the irony of people like Mikey being torn apart by those they have staunchly defended as the victims will be as pure and sweet as justice can get in this current world.

A mob of angry Amish after Mikey, his bodyguards will run out of ammo well before that’s over, they’ll go down, and then Mikey will learn some unpleasant truths.

Real assh0les actually work and perform a lot of vital, useful functions that you’d really miss if they didn’t.

My New Year’s resolution is to piss on that fat demagogue’s fresh grave, preferably as the box is being lowered.

Thanks Sub-Driver.

And they would be embarrassed and sickened by, and ashamed of you and all your commie pals if they were still alive.

I knew when I saw this joker on that commercial with other liberals with the slogan, "I got your 6" meaning they have the backs of the troops, that it was a crock of sh*t.

Every ONE of the people in that commercial were liberals like Alec Baldwin, Jane Fonda, Janeanne Garafolo, Michael Douglas, Tom Hanks, and horseface herself, from "Skank in the city" Sarah Jessica Parker. Now the very guy in the commercial who was purporting to "have the backs of the troops" is now saying his resolution is to stop saying this.

You made me chuckle out loud! I have been doing this all year when talking to the Libs I work with. One of them actually mocks my “Really?”! I am still praying that the last laugh will be mine with that guy.

It’s the Kenyan’s gay army now, is probably what they’re thinking, so it’s okay to support THOSE troops.

Gee Mikey, I could say the same for my family and guess what? They ALL watch Fox news. Guess what else? They don't watch your movies.

Shut up, lard ass and die. Everyone already knows you hate America. You hate freedom. You hate liberty. You hate the constitution. You hate Christianity. You hate hard working people who believe in the work ethic. You hate the family. You hate white people. You hate black people who act white. You hate conservatives. You hate people with traditional values. You hate guns. You hate the Bible. You hate people who live in small towns and the country. You hate hunting. You hate fishing. You hate oil and gas. You hate nuclear power. You hate damning up rivers and streams. You hate the police. You hate the fire department. You hate the military. YYou hate civilization. Let’s face it. You hate humanity. And by the way, you also hate God.

-—to piss on that fat demagogue’s fresh grave, preferably as the box is being lowered.

There’s going to be a line.

Gee, that might plug the ship channel.

After REV 2, this guys name needs to be on the top of the list for exile. Since we will not be funding the UN food programs, I’d put him on the top of a list for a donation to some nation that still has canabals...they would be self sufficient for a few decades feeding off that tub of lard.

When was big Mike in the service? Where did they find a uniform that size?
