No we don't. We don't love the French. We don't even like them. No one likes the French, except the French. Even English speaking Canada hates the French speaking part of Canada. The French make it very easy to hate them. YUK!

I can see why Michael Moore has such a love of them. The French hate America, they are socialists/Marxists, they are cowardly and appease the terrorists, they have no morals, and they smell bad. Same with Michael Moore.



[edit on 7/11/2004 by FlyersFan]


When you say "we don't love the French", who is "we" exactly? It amazes me how you right-wingers think everybody agrees with you and that you speak for the whole country. When are you going to get it through your heads that you are a small group of extremists and in no way speak for the country as a whole?

Contrary to what you say, the French do not hate America, and they are not all socialists/Marxists. Some of them are, yes; but in your view of the world, anyone to the left of Attila the Hun is a socialist. The French are not cowards, and they do not appease the terrorists. They have morals, and they do not smell bad.

It is really disgusting to hear someone like you make such vicious, hateful statements about an entire country just because France opposed the insane warmongering policies of the idiot Bush, whom you worship and adore. I assure you, many more people admire and respect the French and the Germans for standing up to Bush, than despise and hate them like you do.

Bill O'Reilly has made a fool of himself with his claims that American boycotts of French imports have ruined the French economy. The facts? In 2002, the United States imported $28,240,000,000 in goods from France. Remember the Iraq War started in March, 2003, and warmongers like O'Reilly were screaming about the French for months before the war started. The results of the boycott, of which O'Reilly claimed to be a leader? In 2003, the United States imported $29,221,000,000 in goods from France. Yeah, Bill, you really showed those cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

Im not a right winger and I have no love for France. Wait for the full extent of frances part in the Oil for food program/Scandal is known. The French were recieving cash bribes from Saddam the main reason they did not want the war was they stood to lose billions of dollars.

no, i'm american, no french blood in me or french relations. i have no particular love for france, and they certainly have their share of skeletons in their closet, but i get upset when i see people acting like france is the enemy of america when they aren't. both countries are on the same side in the fight against terrorism, they just have different opinions on how to do so. and both countries are, of course, looking after their own best interests in different ways.

Fair enough. You disapprove of the French government's war policy because you think they had corrupt financial motives. But do you hate the French people? Do you think they are cowards? That they smell bad? As far as I am concerned FlyerFan's remarks cross the line from legitimate criticism to bigotry and hate speech.

Are you sure the main reason the French government did not want the war is that they stood to lose billions of dollars in bribes? The fact is, the overwhelming majority of both the French and German people were opposed to the war. Were they all in on the oil for food bribery scam too? Or were the French and German governments merely reflecting popular opinion in their countries?

With regard to the oil for food bribery scandal, how much is actually known, and how much is just allegations? From what I understand, Ahmed Chalabi has all the relevant documents, and is refusing to share them with the United Nations investigation. Can you please explain to me how a known con man and crook, who is also probably an Iranian spy, was allowed to take custody of these documents, and why he is allowed to keep them?

It doesn't matter what France, Germany or Russia did or didn't do. Doesn't matter why action was actually taken. Doesn't matter what's true and what's not. It seems most people just take it for granted that Bush is the Anti-Christ, the One True Symbol of Evil and it's all for the oil. You could come up with absolute unimpeachable evidence to the contrary and it wouldn't matter. Bush is guilty, even if he isn't. Moore is right, even if he isn't. I've talked with a few people who went to see F911 and as far as they're concerned it is gospel truth and anyone who doesn't think so is stupid, wrong and a Bush supporter. These sheep staunchly defend Moore and his offered version of the truth and balk at the thought of actually reading or researching anything that might show evidence to the contrary. They've seen it on the big screen, so it must be true. No wonder Moore thinks Americans are stupid. An awful lot of them swallow his stuff hook line and sinker without batting an eye, and it shouldn't be that way with any info from either the right OR left.

As for hating this country.... lots of people do, both within and outside of our borders. So what? I can't imagine why anyone would care. They hate us now, but wait until they need something from us. Then it'll be all diplomacy and Rose Garden walks. It's the same bunch of crap recycled decade after decade.

I quoted your whole post for a reason...to show you how silly you actually are. You are more than willing to defend the French, who through NATO are REQUIRED to come to the aid of all NATO countries, yet refuse to do so. You are more than willing to defend Michael Moore-on, a proven liar who makes statements, VERIFIABLE STATEMDNTS THAT HE STICKS BY, that all Americans are stupid. Yet you belittle all those who do not believe the way you do, as well as the President, with no solid evidence as to WHY you do so, except for the word of Michael Moore-on....sad, very sad.....

WTF are you talking about??? France is required to come to the aid of NATO members who are ATTACKED. If you are talking about the Iraq War, the United States was not attacked.


You are more than willing to defend Michael Moore-on, a proven liar who makes statements, VERIFIABLE STATEMDNTS THAT HE STICKS BY, that all Americans are stupid.


Excuse me, but Michael Moore is not a proven liar. The only proven liars are the people who claim Moore is a liar. Calling him Moore-on is an ad hominem attack which adds nothing to your argument. Please show me a quote where Moore says all Americans are stupid. You are lying when you say that.



Yet you belittle all those who do not believe the way you do, as well as the President, with no solid evidence as to WHY you do so, except for the word of Michael Moore-on


I do not belittle all those who do not believe the way I do, and you are lying again by claiming that I do. When I do belittle the President, I have very solid evidence, and I don't rely on the word of Michael Moore. But I didn't belittle the President in this post, so why are you bringing this up???



....sad, very sad.....


Yes. you are. In a short post, you have told two flat out lies. Meanwhile, you have failed to respond to a single point or answer a single question from my post. And you think you have shown that I am silly???

I agree with Kayem- I have read through so many post about Moore- and so many people slate him- he says himself that he is putting his opinion across.

I think that this post was just put up simply to start a debate!! Moore discussions always do.

Reading through this post i was shocked by the French remarks- that was terrible, some opinions are best kept to yourself( especially such personal remarks) and to be honest with you there more personal insults going on aswell!!

Some people just need to open their eyes and get their heads round the fact that most of what Moore says is true...

OMFG! does he believe that its the parents choice to enlist their sons or dauguters in the service, no its the son or daughters choice! #ing idoit. they sign up knowing that they might have to go over there. if you enlist with out thinking that the country might go to war while your in the service you should not be in the service. i am going to wokr on ICBMs for the air force and i am going to keep in mind that tomorrow those ICBMs might have to be used.

Im not saying they were Billions of dollars in bribes. Its a fact that Saddam had taking out a large amount of IOUs/Oil deals with these countries thats were the billions are. With Saddam gone those deals can be made null and void. Thats were they would lose Billions. The bribes would be far less though not yet proven there is a invesigation under way. I tend to think were theres smoke theres fire but its just my opinion.

I also dont consider the entire country of France cowards they did have a resistance in WW2. Ofcourse there are some cowards in france just like every other country in the world but I would never classify an entire country in such simple terms. I would addmit I think of the French Foreign Legion as the countries best and bravest fighters and they dont have any french people in them go figure.

Oh god, here comes the typical overzelious american crap, labeling everyone they don't like as either communist or unpatriotic. The way you talk about freedom one could almost believe that you are a free people

Ok, call me a liar, and this is what you get. Be careful what you ask for in the future…

Moore-on said:
"the passengers were scaredy-cats because they were mostly white. If the passengers had included black men, he claimed, those killers, with their puny bodies and unimpressive small knives, would have been crushed by the dudes."

www.washtimes.com...

"They [Americans] are possibly the dumbest people on the planet ... in thrall to conniving, thieving, smug pricks,” he replied. “We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don’t know about anything that’s happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing.”

www.msnbc.com...

"You've got to have a lot of empathy for them because there's not many of them left. Their way of thinking? The angry white guy? Their days are numbered."

seattlepi.nwsource.com...

Here’s how he does the “shuck-and-jive when called on the carpet for his lies…
“When asked about his inaccuracies in his book "Stupid White Men," he shrugged off the question. "You know, look, this is a book of political humor. So, I mean, I don't respond to that sort of stuff, you know," he said.”

www.opinionjournal.com...

Another stupid anti-American comment that is nothing but a lie…

"I agree with the National Rifle Association when they say, 'Guns don't kill people, people kill people.' Except I would alter that to say, 'Guns don't kill people, Americans kill people.' We're the only country that does this, and we do it on an personal level in our neighborhoods and within our families and our schools, and we do it on a global level. The American attitude is that we believe we have a right to just go in and bomb another country. This is where Bush is going right now, right?"

www.opinionjournal.com...

So, missy, take care what you say. Michel Moore-on DID say these words, and I have posted proof of that fact. You have done nothing but blather on and call others liarswith absolutly NOTHING to back yourself up, when in fact it is YOU who proves yourself to be said liar.

Just as you claim the right to belittle our President, I then claim the right to say whatever I wish about the lying sack Michael Moore-on.

I have given this advice on the board in the past, and I offer it to you now…

“It is better to keep your mouth shut and let people THINK you are an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt…”


And you remain "silly as a goose".

You see, I cannot prove a negative. It is impossible to prove that Michael Moore never said that all Americans are stupid. But you made the assertion that he did. It is up to you to provide proof of your assertion. If you cannot provide proof, then you are making things up, and that makes you a liar. You are easily the most intellectually dishonest person posting on ATS. And you have posted more lies in your latest post. In my last post I said


Please show me a quote where Moore says all Americans are stupid. You are lying when you say that.


This was in reference to your statement


You are more than willing to defend Michael Moore-on, a proven liar who makes statements, VERIFIABLE STATEMDNTS THAT HE STICKS BY, that all Americans are stupid.


You have produced many quotes from Michael Moore, yet not one of them quotes Moore as saying all Americans are stupid. So when you say


Michel Moore-on DID say these words, and I have posted proof of that fact.


You have lied yet a third time.

My second accusation of lying against you was this


I do not belittle all those who do not believe the way I do, and you are lying again by claiming that I do.


You have not produced any evidence to back up this claim either. So when you say


in fact it is YOU who proves yourself to be said liar.


You are lying yet again, because I have not proven myself to be a liar, and you haven't proven me to be a liar either. That makes four lies you are guilty of.

Since you are fond of old sayings, have you ever heard, "When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging?"


“It is better to keep your mouth shut and let people THINK you are an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt…”


Look in the mirror.


And you remain "silly as a goose".


Again, look in the mirror.

Exact words, "They [Americans] are possibly the dumbest people on the planet ..." A quote...do you know what a "quote" is? It means the words came directly from someone's mouth. Like the drivel coming from yours now.

I wash my hands of you, as you are nothing but a revisionist liar, as proven by your posts. You don't even realize how stupid you make yourself look, and that is what is very sad....

Oh, I see. You are claiming "They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet" = "all Americans are stupid." That won't even pass the laugh test. According to you, a quote means the words came directly from someone's mouth. Since you have not shown that the words "all Americans are stupid" came from Moore's mouth, you have still not refuted my first charge of lying.


I wash my hands of you, as you are nothing but a revisionist liar, as proven by your posts.


I am not a revisionist liar, and that is certainly not proven by my posts. That makes six lies so far on your part, four of them documented with your own words. Of course you wash your hands of me. I have exposed you as a liar with zero intellectual integrity. Your only response is to tell more lies and call me a liar. Of the four lies I charged you with in my last post, you have only addressed one. I take that as a tacit admission that you were lying in the other three instances.


You don't even realize how stupid you make yourself look, and that is what is very sad....

Michael Moore is a big fat stupid white guy. Love him or hate him he is still that.

The French have taken surrendering/collaboration to an art. Why should that change today?

Look people. I know 99% of you will not get past that first line but read this any way.

Michhael Moore is a bomb thrower. He offers nothing to FIX the problems, he just complains about all that is wrong in America. Stupid people complain, smart people provide answers. Say what you want about Bush but he has answers.

I get it. You think I am an idiot. Do you have to keep saying it over and over? You have a really severe problem accurately representing what other people say. You claim that I deny your sources exist. That is your seventh lie. I don't deny that your sources exist. What I do deny is that "all Americans are stupid" is an accurate quote, or even an accurate paraphrase of "They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet." For some reason, you don't contest this obvious fact.

Wow. As if you hadn't used the word "idiot" enough, you have to use it four more times. So you claim you have put me in your ignore box. If you respond to any more of my posts, that will be your eighth lie. But who's counting?

And you misspelled "avatar". ROTLMAO!
