Liberal Organization That Urged Restraint

After 9/11 Receives Praise And

Support From Democrats And Far Left Activists




MoveOn.Org Urged Restraint After 9/11:


Immediately After 9/11, MoveOn.Org Petition Urged "Moderation And Restraint" And Use Of "International Judicial Institutions."


  • "We, The Undersigned, Citizens And Residents Of The United States Of America ... Appeal To The President Of The United States, George W. Bush ... And To All Leaders Internationally To Use Moderation And Restraint In Responding To The Recent Terrorist Attacks Against The United States." (MoveOn.Org Website, "MoveOn Peace,", Posted 9/13/01, Accessed 6/23/05)

  • "We Implore The Powers That Be To Use, Wherever Possible, International Judicial Institutions And International Human Rights Law To Bring To Justice Those Responsible For The Attacks, Rather Than The Instruments Of War, Violence Or Destruction." (MoveOn.Org Website, "MoveOn Peace,", Posted 9/13/01, Accessed 6/23/05)

  • "[W]e Demand That There Be No Recourse To Nuclear, Chemical Or Biological Weapons, Or Any Weapons Of Indiscriminate Destruction, And Feel That It Is Our Inalienable Human Right To Live In A World Free Of Such Arms." (MoveOn.Org Website, "MoveOn Peace,", Posted 9/13/01, Accessed 6/23/05)

MoveOn.Org's Strong Connections To Left Wing Activists Michael Moore And George Soros:


MoveOn.Org Is Michael Moore's Army. "Michael Moore has a war plan to defeat President Bush. With, he now has his army. Speaking to an estimated 55,000 liberal activists by conference call Monday night, packed into 4,600 homes nationwide, Moore asked three things of his devoted listeners." (David Paul Kuhn, "Michael Moore's Army On The Move,", 6/29/04)


  • MoveOn.Org Promoted Michael Moore's Anti-President Bush Movie, Fahrenheit 9/11. "On a Monday night in late June, just after Fahrenheit 9/11's record-setting opening weekend, the liberal group hosted more than 4,000 house parties across the country, at which some 55,000 people showed up to listen to a live webcast featuring Moore. It was the biggest such event in MoveOn's six-year history, according to MoveOn PAC Field Director Adam Ruben." (Jason Zengerle, "Crashing The Party," The New Republic, 7/19/04)

  • Michael Moore Said U.S. Should Not Have Removed Taliban After 9/11.  Moore:  "Likewise, to bomb Afghanistan - I mean, I've never understood this, Tim." (CNBC's "Tim Russert," 10/19/02)

Top Donors To MoveOn.Org Voter Fund Were Herbert And Marion Sandler ($2,505,014), Peter B. Lewis ($2,500,000), George Soros ($2,500,000) And Stephen Bing ($971,427). (Political Money Line Website,, Accessed 3/18/05)

  • Soros Claimed America Should Have Treated 9/11 Attacks As Crime, Responded With Police Work.  "War is a false and misleading metaphor in the context of combating terrorism.  Treating the attacks of September 11 as crimes against humanity would have been more appropriate.  Crimes require police work, not military action.  To protect against terrorism, you need precautionary measures, awareness, and intelligence gathering - all of which ultimately depend on the support of the populations among which terrorists operate.  Imagine for a moment that September 11 had been treated as a crime.  We would have pursued Bin Laden in Afghanistan, but we would not have invaded Iraq.  Nor would we have our military struggling to perform police work in full combat gear and getting killed in the process."  (George Soros, The Bubble Of American Supremacy, 2004, p. 18) 

  • Soros Said The Execution Of 9/11 Attacks "Could Not Have Been More Spectacular."  "Admittedly, the terrorist attack was a historic event in its own right.  Hijacking fully loaded airplanes and using them as suicide bombs was an audacious idea, and the execution could not have been more spectacular."  (George Soros, The Bubble Of American Supremacy, 2004, p. 2)

  • Soros Said War On Terror Had Claimed More Innocent Victims Than 9/11 Attack Itself. "This is a very tough thing to say, but the fact is, that the war on terror as conducted by this administration, has claimed more innocent victims that the original attack itself." (George Soros, Remarks At Take Back America Conference, Washington, DC, 6/3/04)

Winston Churchill rebuked Western pacifists by saying the Nazis (jihadist) were driven, “I currents of hatred so intense as to sear the souls of those who swim upon them.”

"Liberal Organization That Urged Restraint," just like Neville Chamberlain before WWII. One can never understand what drove the men who drove the planes into the World Trade Center and to try to understand will destroy your soul. Winston Churchill said that Hitler (jihadists) was driven by what Churchill called "currents of hatred so intense as to sear the souls of those who swim upon them."

The more I learn about organizations like MoveOn, the more I am convinced there are groups of Americans out there who absolutely HATE this country, while at the same time have no qualms about partaking in its many fruits.

The big question is whether most Americans will come to see these groups for what they truly are - seditious anti-American scumbags who value international opinions over their own countrymen's lives.

And .. what that proves to me .. If Obama had not done that .. Byrd would have made sure Obama did not get any of Byrd's supporters to donate. It's blackmail - and it's the way the dems do business.

It's not .. you do for me and I'll do for you. It's more like - you do for me or I'll take you out.

What was that weasel Bill something or other saying about Carl Rove's statement?

I can't remember, all the laughter made me forget.

Facts don't make an impression on Dems. Only conspiracy theories do.

Concerning these "seditious anti-American scumbags..." I doubt most Americans can recognize them for what they are, considering the number of Democrats in public office.

Byrd used the old Jim Crow on Obama. He called Obama to the Masters quarters and informed him that he was going to do this little task...and since he couldn't lynch him if he didn't he would just make sure he never ever got a cushy assignment on the HILL.

This c**p is in the SOUL (if they had one) of everyone that calls themselves a Dumocrat.

We need to find the queen ant and destroy the nest. I have them destroy perfectly healthy trees by eating away at the inside while the outside looks perfectly fine until one day the tree just dies and falls over.

Yeah I know, we are talking about but the comparison is striking!
