Or one fat, stupid white guy in particular.
Michael Moore's obsession with Canada- a country in which 60% of the citizens would fail their own citizenship test (apparently only six out of ten polled can recite the first two lines of "O Canada")- should actually be a national embarrassment. Not only are Canadians not up to his intellectual snuff (re: POLL, COMPLETE INABILITY TO PASS CITIZENSHIP TEST) but I personally doubt that Moore would give up his wealth and celebrity (or should that be notoriety?) by renouncing his American citizenship for Canadian citizenship which would entail higher taxes, longer waits for a GP and for various medical services, as well as in the emergency room (indeed, this report suggests that there is dissatisfaction of the current system. Strange.), no absolute right to property, a skewed electoral process and lower audience levels. Out of a country of over 31 million people, halve that significantly by those who cannot by his books or see his "movies", don't know who he is, or don't care, and those who don't like him. He can prove me wrong, but his record at proving anything is extremely poor.
Several cases in point:
The French are so far in the red, they can't actually pay for their own healthcare, despite what Moore claims in his new "movie", "Sicko".
Cuba is a Third-World dictatorship whose hospitals can be described as "filthy". There are no basic medicines. People die from conditions that would be treatable in the US and Canada (yes, Canada).
He's not working-class, nor is he from Flint, Michigan. What a pretender to the blue-collar throne.
The one "blue-collar job" he had he quit. This little lie is listed with the complete omissions of terrorist training camps, Saddam Hussein's dictatorial rule of Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Has he been under a rock that he does not know what's going on? A million-dollar rock in Manhattan, maybe.
Moore has no problem taking support from terrorists, such is his hatred for America, the only country that would allow him to be a big, fat, albeit rich, liar.
The healthcare system in Canada is not universal. Dental health and drug plans are covered separately. Various procedures and treatments are no covered at all. A family friend- a nurse who worked in the system was betrayed by the system. She had a kind of cancer that was not covered under our "universal" system. She has since passed on. To me, she embodies the failure of a system that was supposed to help her. In America, you don't get what you don't pay for. In Canada- at least for my friend- you don't get what you DO pay for. There is a good set of criticisms here. Better yet, just ask sick Canadians- or any Canadian who has been in a Canadian hospital- how satisfied they are. Moore never factored this in. Canada is the opposite of the US. It has to be, or wannabe socialist/uber-capitalist Moore could not function.
Charlton Heston in Bowling for Columbine seemed to change his neckties in under two seconds. His infamous (at least by Moore) speeches after the deaths at a high school in Columbine were the height of insensitivity- if they occurred, which they did not. There are several factual errors in that "movie", as well as others, but this one stands out for me.
In short, Michael Moore is incapable of exerting any intellectual effort into anything. It is easier to lie than it is to tell the truth, that being that Moore is despicable man whose hatred of the very system that allows him to do what he does and get away with it get in the way of very simple truths.
