US filmmaker Michael Moore weighs in on Canada's election

Michael Moore does not like being voted down. Not even if he's not on the ballot.

So when he hears that the Canadians, who are voting today, might return the Conservatives to office (as the American People returned the Republicans to control of Congress in 1994), he takes alarm. Says he:

Oh, Canada -- you're not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That's a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, ... but this is no longer funny.

First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq -- and then you elect a prime minister who's for it. You declare gay people have equal rights -- and then you elect a man who says they don't.

Hey! Let's have a pity party for Michael Moore!





Gumming up a war of civilizations to justify your own inaction in that war is no act of courage. It is the worst sort of cowardice. And marriage is not a right, but a privilege that inheres in the male-female relationship, not male-male or female-female. (Not to mention that we have only Michael Moore's word on the positions of the Conservative party leader.)
