Skip to comments.Michael Moore Loots The Left
Posted on 10/09/2004 12:11:31 AM PDT by dannyboy72
As a relatively new FReeper, this is my first attempt at a vanity post. I heard a news item (i think) that Michael Moore is in talks to put his Docu-Propaganda on Pay-Per-View the night before the election and I cannot help but look back on what may be the greatest legal fleecing in America's history. Micheal Moore has taken hundreds of millions of dollars from the left faithful by playing to their hatred.
He put his DocuProp into the theatres, rallied the troops all over America - Go Left Young Man..and pay for your ticket (or two) on the way in. On average, a healthy $8 to $16 each.
He knows that the money train runs off the tracks on November 2 when Bush gets back into office, so he ensures that his movie gets into Video (where the real money is made) prior to the election. That's good for another $20 each.
And because this idol of American capitalism is ready to milk the cow for each drop of milk, he puts the whole thing on Pay-Per-View, throwing in a few more tasty morsels for the lefty's in the form of new interviews. That's good for 9.95 a pop
Michael Moore does not care about George Bush or John Kerry. Michael Moore cares about his bottom line. He has conned the left into buying a ticket to his movie (perhaps two or three), he has conned them into buying the Video, and just to get their dose of one last Bush bashing, he milks them for another 10 bucks in pay-per-view. If you add it up, he's pilfered almost $50 from each unsuspecting liberal with self-loathing rage against Bush.
On November 2nd, while Bush is dropping the balloons, Michael Moore will be counting his dough, laughing his ass off at the idiot leftists in this country that gave him hundreds of millions of dollars for feeding them a bunch of crap.
Read your history folks. Michael Moore is the modern day Carpet-Bagger selling the left his snake oil. And I for one cannot stop LMAO.
Oh, you're going to get so much flak for posting a vanity on the News section. They were merciless to me. Read this:
Michael Moore is a niche marketer who is extremely adept at generating free publicity.
The fact is, he stands to benefit substantially more if the President is reelected.
Michael Moore is on one side, his own pocketbook.
I said this a long time ago.
Michael Moore is not concerned with politics. In fact I don't think he gives a damn about the election. He's an old school medicine show snake oil salesman.
Moore has found a niche and is making a ton of bread. As far as I'm concerned: Moore power to him.
MM is lookin more and more like a tick
MM is lookin more and more like a tick
He's looking fatter and fatter every day.
He could not have picked a stupider group. Even the "evangelical" Christans have some scepticism; the Left has none. If they will pay money blindly to Kerry, who is a billionair, then they will give money to anyone.
Why doesn't Teerrrraazzaa, open her own health care system?; sponsored by her own billion dollars? She could join with Oprea and Sterisand and Clinton and Penn and O'donnald, all those freaks, and they can do whatever the hell the they want with healthcare. With their own money!!!
Why do they insist on involving me?
I actually saw his ridiculous movie just the other day (don't worry, he made no money off of that viewing eheh). Over the past months that I have been hearing about it, I was actually a little concerned that it might sway some people. But, now having seen it, I think only the truly stupid or faithful would believe a word of that movie. Not only was it full of unsupported accusations, but it was a very poorly made movie as well. It looked no better than a home movie made with a Hi-8 video camera and some video clips downloaded from the internet. Quite frankly, the only reason this movie has made millions for Moore is the hype and the pandering to leftist hatred of Bush.
It's possible that Moore is dumb enough to believe his own propaganda, but I wouldn't be surprised if Moore were really in it just for the money.
Well, I've said before to liberals...
"Michael Moore is a fat, rich, white man who is making money off of their beliefs with lies and propaganda. At the end of the day, he's richer, and they're left looking like the fools and a few bucks shorter."
Sshh. of course we all know this dan. We just weren't letting anyone know he is on our side. After the election george bush and michael are going to go out on the town for a fat steak dinner and have a good laugh about all this.
I heard that the PayPerView offering is set for the evening of NOV. 1---- election eve.
That's why people first post. They just GOTTA! I know the feeling. There's something you think people need to hear, they're not hearing it, etc.
And I've got NO problem with that. That's how people join FR.
At this point in time, only the "true believers" will shell out any cash to watch Moore's propaganda. All of the curious saw it this past summer.
It's very possible that the fat slob may end up owing for the PPV broadcast due to lack of subscribers.
'Trotsky. We like dannyboy. There is an entire country in Europe that sings a song about him. Who doesn't love an Irishman? Who doesn't want to be Irish at least one day a year? He gets a pass. You, on the other hand....
Actually, I just wanted to be sarcastic. I can tolerate your posts and responses, if I have to.
He has to be a pretty good salesman, selling horse manure to liberals and convincing them that it's noodles.
Capitalist theory maintains that entrepreneurs should seek out unfulfilled market needs, and satisfy them at a healthy profit. Moore has merely identified the vast void left by Ted Turner, after Turner sold out to TimeWarner in the 90's. Don't listen to Moore's words -- watch his actions & behaviors. For all of his liberal/socialist spouting, his actions are those of a true blue capitalist who has found a niche gold mine in the market: catering to liberal wrath by creating little hate-fests. I dislike what he has to say, how he does it, etc etc, but so it goes with most marketing geniuses, and one has to respect that he's making a ton of money off of the liberals in our society.
I wasn't standing up for you. You'll have to do that on your own.
Petrotsky is an old forum buddy who had a rough go some time back for a vanity he posted.
You got lucky this time, the flamers took pity on you. You might want to think about what 'rotsky said.
