...because The Palme d'Or of this 57th edition of the Festival de Cannes was presented by Charlize Theron to Michael Moore for his film, Fahrenheit 9/11.

i particularly like his acceptance speech, when he announced that the film had a distributor in albania and said, "Now every country in the world can see this film. Except for one."

"Except for one." you mean Burundi, right?

Well, I think he probably meant the US, since he still doesn't have a distributor there, thanks to Disney's (and other company's) self-censorship of anything anti-Bush.

When even a fellow Zhid calls him a liar he has indeed become major league.

What's up with the Rebel flag, peckerwood?:getlost:

Fa-Q Well I would try to explain the significance historically but I think that not only would be off thread but far to lengthy for this forum.Not that you would be interested in historical accuracy if it interfered with your political correctness.
However I can reduce it to some bumber sticker size explainations for you:
This flag stands for courage defiance and the willingness to fight against overwhelming odds.....or more simply put for your ebonic mentality:
If you don't like my flag you can kiss my rebel a**

Had there not been any articles like this, I would have never believed he was genuine. "Too good to be true" would work a treat then. Since not everything is good, as the article suggests, it just proves he is human and has his flaws.

If GW wants to use prejudicial opinions to carry out his "programme", he should be prepared for the same to be done to him.

I especially liked the money spin in the article: "Moore's in it for the money, not for the good of the world!" Of course, how come we didn't think of it before! He is a greedy bastard, he makes the movies to get rich! Disney on the other hand...

Ingenious, really. The best way to win over your critic's support? Tell them your critic is just like you!

I agree absolutely.....I must say that "Disney" is very different from when the man who was named Disney ran that company.

Coudn't be closer to the truth. Dear old Walter must be spinning in his grave at a speed of an Indesit washing machine drum

As a non-American I don't want to buy into your debates too much and in fact my two closest American friends in Moscow are Southerners and defenders of the realm and more entertaining than any Yankee I've come across.

But...have a read of this, which at the end of the day is what that flag represents, and see what you think (you might need to register but it costs nothing). Normally I think their journalists have carrots up their arses but this is powerful stuff.

Well I posted a reply but I was not permitted to do it
Many many Blacks fought in the war between the states on the Confederate side.So if you think this was the point of the so Called Civil war you are not alone.However you are mistaken,

For your enlightenment and reading pleasure
It was NOT about Slavery

I'll read it a bit later (have to work now). I know it was more complex than just slavery but it was not about Jeffersonian principles either.

Zephyr

It was about freedom, simple.

Well, I could get all intellectual on you and say it was one of the few examples of the Marxist theory of industrialised societies dispensing with feudal ones playing out in real life, but I'll try not to....:p

Ian Smith tagged himself a Freedom Fighter in Rhodesia as he sought freedom for about 2% of the population and shit for the other 98%. It's all relative, really.

(I do promise to read your article when I have some time as I find the South/Civil War a pretty fascinating topic.)
