TRUTH SHOCK FOR LYIN' LIBERALS
PORCINE provocateur Michael Moore likes to portray himself as a working-class man of the people, but a new book exposes him as a "corporate criminal, environmental menace and racist union-buster."
In "Do As I Say, Not As I Do: Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy," Peter Schweizer reveals that Moore, who has been vociferous in his criticism of defense contractor Halliburton, has bought and sold hundreds of shares of Halliburton stock — and that of other defense contractors — through his private foundation.
Moore, who has claimed he doesn't own a "single share" of stock, has also invested heavily in HMOs and pharmaceutical giants, the targets of his next movie, "Sickos."
Moore also likes to rail against what he calls rampant racism in the United States and the fact that supposedly no one hires blacks for good jobs. Schweizer points out that "out of the 134 producers, editors, cinematographers, composers, and production coordinators Moore hired, only three were black." And not one African-American lives in the ritzy Michigan enclave where Moore has a $1 million mansion.
And while publicly championing unions, Moore has been quite anti-union in his own business dealings and had several clashes with the Writers Guild.
Elsewhere in the book:
* Schweizer calls Al Franken a "habitual liar, mean-spirited partisan and racial discriminator" for his frequent fabrications to make conservatives look bad, and the fact that he hired only one black person out of 112 who worked on his various projects.
* Ted Kennedy is labeled an "environmental rapist, tax cheat and oil profiteer" for his moves to defeat environmentally friendly projects, the various Kennedy family trusts designed to dodge taxes from which he benefits, and his family's lucrative oil holdings.
* Hillary Clinton is depicted as a "corporate shill and petty tax avoider" while ultra-liberal Barbra Streisand is exposed as a "civil liberties violator, outsourcer and war profiteer."
* Liberal icon Ralph Nader is labeled a "bourgeois materialist, stock manipulator and tyrannical sweatshop boss," while left-wing deep-thinker Noam Chomsky is seen to be a "social parasite, economic protectionist [and] amoral defense contractor." Who knew?
