Michael Moore References Existence of God Because Hurricane Gustav During RNC

 

Far be it from Michael Moore to have any class or any concept of God for that matter. Like Moore should be making any comments that reference God … where is that responsive lightening when you need it?

Sometime you really have wonder at what cost some are willing to see their political ideology advanced.

 To liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, the bounds are seemingly endless. Moore has made a recent career out of attacking President George W. Bush, bashing conservatives and criticizing business. His latest outrage occurred on MSNBC’s August 29 “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” and when he commented about the coincidental timing of an unfortunate disaster – the potential for Hurricane Gustav to make landfall at the beginning of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn.

 “I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven,” Moore said, laughing. “To have it planned at the same time – that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for day one of the Republican Convention, up in the Twin Cities – at the top of the Mississippi River.”

      He is a total a$$ and getting rich off of being one.

    2. Helen on August 30th, 2008 8:37 pm

      He was referencing James Dobson asking his followers to pray for rain on the open air portion (Obama’s speech) of the Democratic convention…
      which did not happen.

      The day befoe the Dem convention started, three tornados were sighted near Denver…and I read comments saying some wished they would HIT Denver.

      NO ONE – not Michael Moore – NO ONE wants another hurricane in New Orleans…the levees are only 20% fixed!!!
      But we do see a horrible irony in almost three years to the day after Katrina, AND during the Republican Convention…a huge hurricane is coming.
      And the Democrats did NOT ( and would never) pray for it.

      I’m praying Gustav comes at a Cat-5 and wipes NOLA off the face of the Earth. Gaia, get it right this time!

    4. Helen on August 31st, 2008 1:32 am

      I correct myself…
      no one with a heart and a soul wants another hurricane in New orleans.

      #2- Helen, I concur.

      One thing to add is that Michael Moore is in desperate need of 3 or 4 things:

      * A shave & shower
      * A Fitness Trainer
      * A LOBOTOMY

      Can’t believe this man gets paid to make movies! lol what a joke.

      My thoughts and prayers go out to the many people of the U.S. Gulf Coast, all of whom have been affected by Hurricane Gustav and Tropical Storm Hanna.

      I’m praying and hoping both storms will dissipate before landfall.

      Micheal Moore is an overweight liberal gas-bag who knows just enough about a subject to be dangerous, but I am glad he is part of our America. In Iran, Nazi Germany, Guatemala or Chile, etc., the government would just send out a few goons to do him in. I’m glad we have the kind of society that instead just talks about his silly b.s. on the Internet. As Chairman Mao said in his Little Red Book, “Let a thousand flowers blossom.” Unfortunately, after saying this he went out killed thousands of “intellectuals” who disagreed with his policies. But our country really does “let a thousand flowers blossom.” Moore is an idiot, but we should defend to the death his right to be one.

    9. Maggie on August 31st, 2008 6:27 pm

      I don’t wish a hurricane on anyone. My daughter lives in Pensacola, Florida , pretty close and is under tropical storm warnings. I’ve been trying to get her to go Atlanta since yesterday. Her neighbor said if they get any warnings it is going to be real bad, they will drive to her sister’s in Atlanta .. plus the church told all of them if they need anything at anytime , let them know. She lived throught Hurricane Ivan in college and it terrified her. Put them in lock down in this big building with no windows and only a door, electric went out.. They had flashlights, she said it sounded like a freight train outside..was dark and seemed to last for hours. Next few days her and her classmates went out with city workers to help clean up debris. The college campus was a mess and shattered some of the windows. I really feel for those people. We had so many storms here in May and June, tornado warnings over and over,, winds of 70mph.. so I can’t imagine 100, 145 and up..

      “GOP Cancels Convention Opening Night”

      Ha ha ha! lol

      There must be a god after all. lol

      I can recall Republi-cons praying for it to rain on Obama’s Convention Parade.

      The rains came late; but just in time for McCaint’s parade. How wonderful. Ha ha ha!

      Another sign of a great leader — GOOD LUCK!

      People have been showering Obama with RECORD amounts of money.
      Mother Nature showered her son, Obama with brilliant sunshine on his most important date so far.

      Bush has had much bad luck, of his own making:
      911
      Katrina
      Iraq debacle
      Afghanistan-Pakistan neglect
      Destruction of budget surplus
      Record deficit
      Destruction of the US economy
      Record housing crisis
      Bush creates NOTHING of worth in his 8 years of Presidency
      Bush has John McKeating Five Crook by his side all the way!

      Can Americans read the signs of a good leader, in the Natural Born leader, Obama?

    11. Helen on September 1st, 2008 1:22 am

      I agree about the Bush/Mcain failures…
      but NOT about being happy about the hurricane!!!!

      These are REAL PEOPLE who are about to be affected terribly, …and plenty of animals too..

      This kind of thinking on either side is so regrettable…

    12. A New Girl on September 1st, 2008 5:09 am

      #10- Jean—-you’re going to overdose from all that Kool Aide you’ve been drinking.

      At least McCain & Bush have the NATIONS BEST INTERESTS at heart first and foremost—instead of wanting to fill a stadium with a rock show and have a celebrity-like icon appear.

      Remember, Jean- while he has certainly made his mistakes—it’s just really ignorant for you to blame all of those things above you bulleted excelusively on one presidential incumbent.

      COUNTRY FIRST JEAN !!!!!!!!!!! SERVICE FIRST. Lose all that hate you seem to have inside pointed directly at Republicans, it’s unhealthy. But hey, if that’s the only thing in your life that gives you any joy—knock yourself out.

      COUNTRY FIRST, JEAN! Not some damn convention—what means more, Jean? Saving American lives or appealing to them for a vote? We’re going to get the votes anyway. It’s going to be a lot closer than you think………Stay tuned

      New Girl – You are shouting (caps) the republican theme for their convention.

      How’s was your big gulp of kool aide this morning?

      BTW – I love the picture of Bush/McCain smiling and having birthday cake for McCain while Katrina was happening.
      http://tinyurl.com/6qhxhs

      Good thing, when it’s politically expedient like now, Bush will be there.

      chug, chug, chug.

    14. A New Girl on September 1st, 2008 3:38 pm

      Yoyo—you just don’t get it. So instead of arguing with you, I will just let you think you are right.

      PS- The use of caps is not really shouting. It’s just to emphasize to those, who like you- don’t really get it. A complete waste of my positive energy, too.

      PS- Bush was a complete idiot in his lack of response time to Katrina. As is obvious from the improvements now that were made with Gustav, suffice to say our Government looked so bad- we had to prevail this time. So, I’ll give you that one- Katrina response was an embarrassment, at best.

      Palin’s 17yr old daughter is 5 months pregnant.

      What the heck is going to come out tomorrow?

      What a monumentally bad choice by John McCain. Some seriously flawed judgement.

      New Girl – Don’t leave out Nagin. It’s beyond comprehension how that dude got re-elected.
      But I am glad you have positive energy – send it my way since I’m a bit sore from the Disneyland half marathon.

    16. Maggie on September 1st, 2008 6:56 pm

      Kind of like this fiasco?

      Just weeks before Clinton took office, President George H. W. Bush had deployed American soldiers to Somalia, a coastal nation on the Horn of Africa, where people were suffering and dying from starvation and civil war. The soldiers were sent to guard food and other relief supplies from being stolen by warring factions. After soldiers faced fire from armed clans and 19 soldiers were killed in 1993 in the Battle of Mogadishu, the mission quickly lost popularity with the American people. Fearing anarchy resulting in the starvation of Somalia’s civilians and to help U.S. Forces defend themselves, Clinton increased troop presence in the country. Demands for withdrawal, however, grew louder and Clinton ordered troops out of the country in March 1994. This left Somalia in a state of anarchy, with warlords battling for control, even 10 years later.

      In April 1994, a genocide erupted in Rwanda between Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups. Over the next few months, an estimated 500,000 to 1 million Rwandans, mainly Tutsi, were killed. By July, the Rwandan Patriotic Front took over the country. Although the Clinton Administration and the international community was aware of the genocide taking place in Rwanda, they decided to ignore it. By the end of July, nearly two million of Hutus fled the country for safety, spawning the growth of refugee camps in neighboring countries. As thousands of people died of disease and starvation in these refugee camps, Clinton ordered airdrops of food and supplies for the Hutu refugees, including known genocidaires. In July, he sent 200 non-combatant troops to the Rwanda capital of Kigali to manage the airport and distribute relief supplies. These troops were subsequently withdrawn by October 1994. Clinton and the United Nations faced criticism for their non-response to the genocide.

    17. Maggie on September 1st, 2008 7:39 pm

      This is just a few of the president’s and vp family stuff I have seen in the past few years. I hardly think I will lose sleep over Gov. Palin’s daughter being unmarried and having a baby. Hollywood is full of that lifestyle. We would probably be more than shocked at all the abortions that have taken place.

      When Bill was Governor of Arkansas, Roger Clinton pleaded guilty to cocaine distribution in 1984 and served one year of a two-year sentence in return for testifying against a number of other defendants.[2] Subsequently, his brother granted him a pardon amongst the list of pardons issued on January 19, 2001. Roger also submitted six names for his half-brother to pardon, most of them conspirators in his drug dealings. The president reportedly turned all of Roger’s recommendations down.[2]

      However, Roger continued to court legal trouble. On February 17, 2001, less than a month after he was pardoned,[2] he was arrested and charged with two counts of drunken driving and one for disturbing the peace.

      In 1977, Billy Carter endorsed Billy Beer capitalizing upon his colorful image as a beer-drinking Southern boy that had developed in the press while his brother ran for President. Billy Carter’s name was occasionally used as a gag answer for a Washington, D.C., trouble-maker on 1970s episodes of The Match Game. Carter was known for his outlandish public behavior. For example, he once urinated on an airport runway in full view of the press and dignitaries

      Al Gore III, 24, was driving a blue Toyota Prius about 100 mph on the San Diego Freeway when he was pulled over at about 2:15 a.m., Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino said.

      The deputies said they smelled marijuana and searched the car, Amormino said. They found less than an ounce of marijuana along with Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, he said.

      “He does not have a prescription for any of those drugs,” Amormino said.

      Patrick Kennedy

      On May 4, 2006, Kennedy crashed his 1997 Ford Mustang convertible into a barricade on Capitol Hill at 2:45AM. An FOP official who was not on the scene said the congressman had appeared intoxicated when he crashed his car, but Kennedy claimed that he was merely disoriented from prescription medications Ambien and Phenergan.[2] Anonymous sources are alleged to have seen Kennedy drinking at the nearby Hawk & Dove bar prior the accident.[3] [4] Kennedy also stated to officers that he was “late for a vote.” However, the last vote of the night had occurred almost six hours earlier. The standard field sobriety test was not administered.

      Bill Clinton

      In a separate case, Clinton was ordered to pay $25,000 in fines to Arkansas state’s bar officials and his Arkansas law license was suspended for five years.[75] The agreement came on the condition that Whitewater prosecutors would not pursue federal perjury charges against him.[76] Clinton was suspended by the Supreme Court in October 2001, and, facing disbarment from that court, Clinton resigned from the Supreme Court bar in November.

      Paid Paula Jones almost a million dollars on a suit against him for exposing himself to her.

      Greta Van Sustern’s husband..

      John Coale, a prominent Washington lawyer, husband of Fox TV host Greta Van Susteren and a supporter of Sen. Hillary Clinton, announced today that he was supporting John McCain for president. Coale, who traveled with Sen. Clinton, President Clinton and her family through out the primary season, complained of sexism, and said the Democratic Party is “being taken over by the moveon.org types” in an exclusive interview with Newsweek.com’s Tammy Haddad.

      Sarah Palin wants abstinence only sex education taught in every public school in the USA and will push that if she becomes VP.
      Palin is against federal funding of birth control, against health insurance companies covering birth control medications, against sex-ed, and for abstinence only programs.

      If Palin can’t even get her own daughter to buy into it then how does she expect teachers in public schools to get kids in their classrooms to buy into it?

      If you run on the Bible you better be as clean as the driven snow.
      Palin’s favorite religious points are abstinence and being against any and all abortion rights (even in the case of rape/incest).
      If you’re platform is about sex and babies and your underage child gets pregnant then…

      Can’t wait for this question to Palin: “Why do you think abstinence only education failed in the case of your own daughter?”

    20. yoyo muffintop on September 1st, 2008 9:31 pm

      Maggie – Greta Van Sustern’s husband? Really?

      For the most part Hillary supporters are pro-choice, anti-gun, anti-hunting, and politically progressive.
      I’m sure they will come out in droves for McCain/Palin.

    21. BUN on September 2nd, 2008 6:40 am

      New Girl…you go girl and hit Yo Yo right on her muffintop!!! I also think Michael Moore could use a SOUL…

    22. A New Girl on September 2nd, 2008 7:04 am

      #15- Yoyo= For the record…I am a registered Independent who is pro-choice.

      Palin’s daughter is not running for VP- of course Dem’s will try and make an issue out of this as well….All I can say is it will not affect the vote of many. Please! Pick up the papers today, read the news. While I don’t agree with it- there are so many unwed couples and single parents which to me just translates that not enough believe in the institution of marriage anymore or proper birth control for that matter.

      In this day and age, I don’t see this factor really affecting too many or coming as a shock.

      Also remember, Palin has a son headed off to Iraq. So, spin it how you want….Dems are looking for anything to bring her down and sorry, it’s not going to happen. Oh, I know- we should be more like Edwards and be banging some chick while running for Pres. and your wife has been diagnosed with cancer…. God! Got to stick to the issues at hand which in my mind, are improving our economy, National Security, alternative energy sources and re-energizing and renewing faith in our great Nation again.

      We’re all a bit “sore” from everything, Yoyo. Palin is a reformer…McCain (while as I have said will win no Mr. Congeniality contest)- is kick-a**, can get the job done and most important–has the experience overall needed to being putting our country back on the right track.

      Obama’s sermons and speeches all sound wonderful, but at the end of the day …my fear is that he doesn’t possess experience-wise what it takes yet to get the job done. Yet. His time will come but our country will face too many dangerous and great risks if he is elected before his time to really shine. It’s just not time for him yet.

    23. flippy on September 2nd, 2008 7:50 am

      Yoyo (et. all) -
      The Hillary supporters that will jump because of Palin being on the ticket are the ones that supported her primarily because she is a woman. We will never know that percentage just as we will never know how many of Obama’s supporters are with him because he is black, or how many of McCain’s supporters are with him because Obama is black.

      A suprising number of primary voters stated that race & Gender was a factor in their vote…not suprising that it was a factor, but that they admitted to it tells me that it is very important to some; parhaps important enough to sway a vote even though it is otherwise against their self-interest.

      My guess is that the Clinton->Palin movement will be large at first (all those people giving out an I-told-you-so to the polling folks) and then it will contract a bit as people get over it.

    24. Cindie on September 2nd, 2008 8:07 am

      Moore doesn’t even believe in GOD.
      Now for the ‘real’ question. obama/biden wants to teach evolution…however McCain/Palin want to teach creation. Which one do “I” want my child to learn? The GODLY one..which is…CREATION. These peoples morals have gotten WAY outta whack. How dare they try to teach my children EVOLUTION! That totally infuriates me.

    25. yoyo muffintop on September 2nd, 2008 11:09 am

      #24 – Are you being sarcastic? I can’t tell.
      If you’re not, the beautiful thing is that you can’t send you kids to private school to learn that.
      Which “version” of creationism are you into? Thousands of choices. Here are a few:
      Babylon creation
      African Olari creation
      Norse creation
      Mayan creation
      Micmac creation
      Iroquois creation
      Hawaiian creation
      Egyptian creation
      Aztec creation
      Hopi creation
      Genesis creation

    26. yoyo muffintop on September 2nd, 2008 11:13 am

      Beautiful thing is that you can send your kids to private school #24.
      Do you believe in abstinence only education as well? It appears that doesn’t work too well.

    27. yoyo muffintop on September 2nd, 2008 1:22 pm

      It just keeps coming…

      Sarah Palin 6/8/08:
      “Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan.”

      Yikes – that’s some really scary stuff.
      Thanks but no thanks.
