We wanted you to read some of the quotes we've found from Michael Moore. We think they speak for themselves. Here is a sampling, below:

  • “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.” -, April 24
  • “The motivation for war is simple. The U.S. government started the war with Iraq in order to make it easy for U.S. corporations to do business in other countries. They intend to use cheap labor in those countries, which will make Americans rich.”
  • “They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet ... in thrall to conniving, thieving smug [pieces of the human anatomy],” Moore intoned. “We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don’t know about anything that’s happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing.”
  • “You’re [the British] stuck with being connected to this country of mine, which is known for bringing sadness and misery to places around the globe.”
  • “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.”
  • “Should such an ignorant people lead the world?”
  • “Don’t go the American way when it comes to economics, jobs and services for the poor and immigrants. It is the wrong way.”
