SOLDIER FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST MICHAEL MOORE
FOR UNAUTHORIZED AND FALSE PORTRAYAL IN "DOCUMENTARY"

 

We've come to expect many things from Michael Moore, the deliriously anti-gun millionaire posing as populist who brought us such absurd and irresponsible works as "Bowling for Columbine," "Stupid White Men," "Dude, Where's My Country?" and "Fahrenheit 9/11."   We've come to expect patronizing arrogance, blatant anti-Americanism, and flagrant lies. 

 

Well, now he's being called to account by Peter Damon, a double-amputee Iraq war veteran, who's suing the rotund "documentary" filmmaker for $85 million, alleging that Moore manipulated an old NBC "Nightly News" interview to make Damon appear anti-war, and anti-President Bush in "Fahrenheit 9/11." 

 

"I just want everybody to know what kind of a guy Michael Moore is, and what kind of film this is," said Damon, who strongly supports the President and the war in Iraq, and never agreed to be in the movie.

 

Damon's lawsuit states, "The work creates a substantially fictionalized and falsified implication as a wounded serviceman who was left behind when Plaintiff was not left behind but supported, financially and emotionally, by the active assistance of the President, the United States and his family, friends, acquaintances and community."

 

"It's upsetting to him because he's lived his life supportive of his government, he's been a patriot, he's been a soldier, and he's now being portrayed in a movie that is the antithesis of all of that," Damon's lawyer, Dennis Lynch, said.

Actually, I like the idea of Michael Moore ebing sued.  Hit him where it hurts: win or lose he'll be paying lots of money to the lawyers.

Thats just it, he never had an interview with Moore.  He did an interview with one of the networks at the request of his Army Doctors.  The interview was about how great a new pain killer is that the Army had developed specially for amputees.  It was a very pro-Army interview that went into great detail about how wounded soldiers were able to heal up and go into rehab and move on with their life so much quicker all because of this drug.  Among other things, the drug takes away real and phantom pain with supposedly no addiction or side effects.  Moore got a copy of the interview and played editing games with it.  This trooper tried in vain for a couple of years to get Moore to just make a public apology and admit to what he had done.  Moore has refused to even speak with the soldier.  Now the guy has been forced to file a lawsuit.  This is one of the few lawsuits that actually needs to be filed and should be supported by everyone.  I hope he takes Moore to the cleaners and forces a public admission of guilt.
