Michael Moore defects; likes wursts better than burgers
: Medienkritik translates some reports on Michael Moore’s German tour. From taz (under the very strange subhead, “The profit Michael Moore on his German tour: He’s no Jesus.”):
He made a damn lot of jokes, all afternoon. One could have died of laughter. The Americans are so stupid. Completely idiotic. Ignorant. 85% of 18 to 25 year olds can’t even find Iraq on the map! Wouldn’t that be a good UN resolution? Before George Bush can bomb a country, his countrymen need to first take a test. And if they don’t know where the country is, they have to bomb themselves. Wouldn’t that be something?
Michael Moore is now speaking in a low position, convinced and stupid, he parodies the average American, its funny, and he is really good at it.
From Der Spiegel:
It’s our national policy to keep people stupid.
From another paper:
Nine eleven was not a terrorist attack, it was a military attack.
Which, I think, makes all the thousands of dead soldiers and is Moore’s particularly sick way of justifying — or at least elevating — the attack.
