Republicans, Out of Ideas, Ask Prosecutors to Arrest Michael Moore


10/6/04

Dear Friends,

You may have heard by now that the Michigan Republican Party has called for my arrest. That's right. They literally want me brought up on charges -- and hope that I'm locked up.

No, I'm not kidding. The Republican Party, yesterday, filed a criminal complaint with the prosecutors in each of the counties where I spoke last week in Michigan.

My crime? Clean underwear for anyone who will vote in the upcoming election.

Each night on our 60-city "Slacker Uprising Tour" through the 20 battleground states, I've been registering hundreds (and on some nights, thousands) of voters at my arena and stadium events. I then ask for everyone over 23 who has never voted (or didn't vote in the last election) to stand up. I tell these slackers that I understand and respect why they think politicians are not worth the bother. I tell them that I may have been the original slacker, and that I do not want them to change their slacker ways. Keep sleeping 'til noon! Keep drinking beer! Stay on the sofa and watch as much TV as possible! But, please, just for me, on 11/2, I want you to leave the house and give voting a try -- just this once. The stakes this time are just too high.

If they promise me that they'll do this, I give the guys a 3-pack of new Fruit of the Loom underwear, and the women get a day's supply of Ramen noodles, the sustenance of slackers everywhere.

I then close by having them repeat the 2004 Slacker Oath: "Pick nose! Pick butt! Pick Kerry."

It seems to have worked, as each night the volunteer tables are swamped afterwards with hundreds of new and young voters signing up to campaign for regime change for the next four weeks.

The satire of all this seems to have been lost on the Republicans. Or maybe it hasn't. The state of Michigan (where we spent most of last week) reported that over 100,000 young people recently registered to vote, a record that no one saw coming. The Slacker Tour has turned into a huge steamroller with a momentum all its own.

So, the Republican Party, to show their gratitude that so many young people will now be involved in our system, has demanded that I be sent to jail for trying to "bribe" students to vote.

Of course, this would be quite laughable if they weren't so serious about their charges. But they are. I may soon be a wanted man in Michigan -- simply because I convinced a few slackers to change their underwear and eat a healthy meal of artificially flavored noodles.

I thought I'd seen it all this year -- Disney refusing to distribute the film they paid for, right-wingers harassing theater owners who showed "Fahrenheit 9/11," conservative action groups trying to get the FEC to kick our film ads off the air, the unnecessary restrictive R-rating that forced teenagers to sneak in to see it, and all the stupid, crazy attacks on me and my movie that I've had to listen to as I watched the public ignore them and pack the movie houses anyway, where my film was being shown. And when all that failed, five different Republican groups made five different attack dog tapes (oops, "documentaries"!) against me in a period of about six weeks. But they were all so bad, so boring, so right-wing, no one wanted to watch them and they too went away, a sad waste of good videotape.

Now, after enduring all this, with no tricks left in their bag, they've just decided, "Let's toss his sorry ass behind bars -- him and his noodles and his gift of clean underwear!"

My friends, they will not catch me. Though I may be on the run, and I may never be able to return home to my beloved Michigan, I make this solemn vow to you and yours: The slackers of America shall not be denied their noodles, they will proudly wear their clean underwear as free Americans, and they will vote Bush out of office come November 2nd (though they will not show up to the polls until well after noon)!

Stay strong, stay slacker, and please remember to turn the underwear inside out every three days. As for the noodles, add boiling water, stir.

Yours,

Michael Moore :sad: :sad:

there it is.
so then what do you think?

Easy. I think the republicans hate him, and would gladly see him burned at the stake.

This election campaign is one of the dirtiest I've seen in the States. It seems to me that the Democrats underestimated the depths to which the Bush campaign would stoop. Kerry campaigns on issues. Bush on draging up as much dirt as he possibly can, regardless of whether it's true or not - even to the point of trying to rubbish Kerry's Vietnam war record. (At least he's got one.)

I wonder if the public prosecutor is going to indict Jeb Bush for vote fixing in Florida. No? I didn't think so....

Hugs,

Barclay

Nice one for posting that Shamanix, a full six days after I posted the story in this very forum, ( http://psy-forum.co.uk/psyforum/viewtopic.php?t=11608 - Noodles for votes ) and to which NOT ONE FUCKING FUCKER REPLIED.... ( Not that I'm bitter ).
Anyway, this is what I had to say last week....

Good idea eh? a comedy way of getting kids to realise that if you don't vote, you have no voice.

Not everyone appreciates his efforts though......
Republicans are calling for film-maker Michael Moore to be prosecuted for offering prizes of noodles and underwear to encourage voting.


Mr Moore is not the only one who understands the effects of voter apathy it seems, and is being accused of bribery !!!

Now, I could be being very cynical here, but my take is that the Republicans know that their own supporters are more likely to actually get off the lard-arse off to the polling booth, and they are not going to like the fact that there might be more opposition to there cause, just because Moore is encouraging people who would not usually have, to vote.

Or is that just fcuking obvious to anyone not living in America ?

Hmm - I always read Michael Moore's website so this is hardly a new story. The prosecuters gave the republicans short shrift ... "we prefer to concentrate our efforts on those who sell cocaine to our young folk rather than those who give them clean underwear" was one memorable response ...

However I do think the contrast to THIS LINK is quite asounding. Democracy in action eh ?

I'm also a little concerned about the amount of money being spent by both parties on campaigning for this election - surely it would do one of them some good if they said that they were actually going to use the money for something constuctive rather than just slating their opponent

I'm touching myself as I write this post.

In a country where Vince McMahon has made a BILLION dollars out of wrestling to the extent where it's overtaking baseball as the national "sport"?

Wouldn't think so.
