Michael Moore Sounds Like Osama Bin Laden?

Peter Daou and a bunch of other people on the left are all bent out of shape because Chris Matthews said that Michael Moore sounds like Osama bin Laden.

I honestly don't know what the problem is. I mean, Moore once favorably compared terrorists in Iraq to America's freedom-fighting minutemen. Who else thinks those suicide-bombing, civilian-targeting cowards are "freedom fighters?" Osama bin Laden maybe?

Of course, all the lefties are going to pretend like Moore doesn't really say stuff like that. But whatever.

Really though, I'd be more willing to listen to their complaints if there had been some outrage from the left over Harry Belafonte calling our President (repeatedly and unapologetically) "the greatest terrorist in the world" (in a foreign country standing next to one of America's enemies, no less). Or even some outrage over Hillary Clinton appearing next to Belafonte at a fundraiser shortly after those comments.

I mean, if saying that Moore sounds like bin Laden, certainly implying that Bush is a worse terrorist than that man is, you know...worse.

I won't hold my breath waiting for some condemnation for Belafonte or Clinton from the left.

Hypocrites.

Chris:

I don't agree with a lot of what Moore says, but he's not wrong about the insurgents. Not everyone fighting against the US is engaging in terrorist attacks. Military officials acknowledge that only about 7 percent of the fighters in Iraq are from foreign countries. While many of the Iraqi fighters are undoubtedly engaging in terrorist attacks, a great number are not, and see themselves as fighting to get rid of a foreign invader.

Attacks on our troops are not terrorism, they are part of the battle. The word has to have some meaning.

And what "outrage" are supposed to express about Hilary Clinton? She went to a fundraiser that was also attended by Harry Belafonte. She made it a point not to be seen near him. She wasn't "next" to him. Do you really think every politician cancels plans to appear somewhere because they heard that someone who said something outrageous might also be there? So I guess no Republican will candidate will ever be in the same room as Pat Robertson again.

By last night, "Rogue State" shot up from 205,763 to 26 on Amazon.com's index of the most-ordered books.

His fanboi's may be upset, but Moore is laughing all the way to the Baskin-Rob,err.. bank. OBL comparisons and endorsements are gold in the moonbat-industrial complex.

Sorry dumbass, car bombings and suicide bombings are terrorist attacks. Kidnapping contractors and journalists is terrorism. Confronting military targets is freedom fighting.
