In an obvious attempt to pour gasoline on the fire of the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, film maker and provocateur Michael Moore has proposed building the 9/11 Mosque on Ground Zero and is soliciting donations to accomplish this.
According to CNN:
“‘I want it built on Ground Zero. Why? Because I believe in an America that protects those who are the victims of hate and prejudice,’ Moore writes in an open letter on his website. ‘I believe in an America that says you have the right to worship whatever God you have, wherever you want to worship.
“‘And I believe in an America that says to the world that we are a loving and generous people and if a bunch of murderers steal your religion from you and use it as their excuse to kill 3,000 souls, then I want to help you get your religion back. And I want to put it at the spot where it was stolen from you,’ he added.
“The filmmaker is also urging his supporters to contribute money to help fund the controversial project and is pledging to match up to $10,000 in donations.
“‘C’mon everyone, let’s pitch in and help those who are being debased for simply wanting to do something good. We could all make a huge statement of love on this solemn day,’ Moore writes.”
One hardly knows where to start with this bit of remarkable Internet theatre. 9/11 was a little more than just a group of Islamo Fascist fanatics stealing the Islamic religion. It was about a group of Islamo Fascist fanatics stealing the lives of almost three thousand human beings in the name of Allah. Michael Moore seems to have very little sympathy for the people who were blown up, burned alive, asphyxiated, crushed, and other wise killed on 9/11.
It actually seems pretty clear that Michael Moore, like the Koran burning Pastor, believes in an America where anyone can interject themselves into a news story to further inflate their own porcine ego and megalomania. Considering the downward spiral of Moore’s career, it is not surprising why he should think so.
Gone are the days when the latest “documentary” by Michael Moore could get buckets full of media attention and accolades from the Hollywood Left. Moore’s last two films, “Sicko” and “Capitalism: A Love Story” fell just more than a little flat with both audiences and critics.
There is just a little hint of desperation in Michael Moore’s attempt to appear to be the tolerant one. One cannot doubt that this is the beginning of a publicity campaign for the next bit of cinematic awesomeness to come out of Moore’s camera, likely something to do about Islam in the modern world. Like his other movies, this one will no doubt be filled with the usual dubious claims and silly cinematic tricks.
I will give it a pass.
