    Moore: Americans are 'The Dumbest People on the Planet'

    Americans currently flocking to see Michael Moore's movie "Farenheit 9/11" might be surprised to learn how little respect the Democratic Party's leading propaganda-meister has for them.

    ''They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet," Moore told Britain's Mirror newspaper recently, referring to his fellow citizens as a whole.

    And that's not all Moore had to say about his brother Yanks across the pond. ''We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don't know about anything that's happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing.''
    Turns out, when the Democratic Party's all-but-official filmmaker is speaking at home, he has nice things to say about at least some of his fellow citizens. But according to New York Times columnist David Brooks, when Moore travels abroad it's not just the Bush administration he trashes - but the American people en-masse.

    Here's a few more bon mots from the Kerry campaign's leading celluloid supporter, as cited by Mr. Brooks on Saturday:

    ''That's why we're smiling all the time,'' Moore told a rapturous throng in Munich. ''You can see us coming down the street. You know, 'Hey! Hi! How's it going?' We've got that big [expletive] grin on our face all the time because our brains aren't loaded down.''

    To a crowd in Cambridge, Moore intoned: ''You're stuck with being connected to this country of mine, which is known for bringing sadness and misery to places around the globe.''

    Here's Moore's reaction to the 9/11 attacks, offered while the rubble at Ground Zero was still smoldering: ''We, the United States of America, are culpable in committing so many acts of terror and bloodshed that we had better get a clue about the culture of violence in which we have been active participants.''

    As for the terrorists currently killing American soldiers in Iraq, Moore compares them to Revolutionary war heroes who fought off British oppression:

    ''The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win.''

    I say we ship him to iraq and see how long it takes for his head to be removed from his fat ass.

    Then again he may become one of the terrorists.

    This comment deserves a rebuttal:

    Such a comment coming from what is supposed to be a somewhat intelligent man.
    There are not to many similarities with what is going on in Iraq and the American Revolutionary War.
    Engalnd wanted to rule the new world, we don't want to activly rule Iraq, it just won't happen.
    We want friends in Iraq, we don't want Iraq.
    Quite a difference.

    Typical lib stuff...inaccurate, therefore irrelevant.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    if you don't think we want to rule iraq,you don't get how that is done.

    I could tell you of the overthrow and assination of mossadegh in Iran in 1954 to depose a democratically elected leader and install a corrupt regime of the shah pavlovi and his sons ,for oil,and contracts.

    that is what led to the 1979 revolt and hostage taking and one of many acts that created this hatred of the west in the region.

    we don't proclaim colonies anymore,we install and protect friendly gov'ts to be our "face-man" to the people they rule over.

    the point is to help gaurentee favor in the negotiations of contracts to "plussed"entities for a regions resources.

    that is "buisness as usual"

    that is also why we are here today,with the two sides of an american reputation.
    one good;created by all the good people that take part in the helping of mankind;

    and the bad side:leftovers and resentment from bad impressions left by our unofficial ambassadors,american multinational corporations.

    Do you honestly believe we are in Iraq so we can control it? Do you have any idea what a success to the war on terror a Democratic Iraq will be. I know it is a long time before we know the outcome, but why can't we all pull for the cause instead of hoping it fails so we can point fingers and say we told you so. I wonder how many people saw the American revolution as hopeless and a pointless waste of lives?

    Some of our own chosen officials didnt want the revolution with Britain! They even sent a letter to the King in England begging him not to send over troops and that we will obey his laws again, without a fight!

    Of course this was never put up for a vote with the rest of the governing officials nor was Washington endorsing this thinking!

    But if was far far from being just a handful of isolated dissedents. These men were "connected" in our land. And they didnt see any hope for our winnig the revolution against Britain.

    And ever since that event .. England has been trying everywhere to regain their pride by taking over other peoples who appear to be lessor than they.
