How then did author Peter Schweizer uncover IRS documents showing that Moore's very own foundation has bought stocks in some of America's largest corporations including Halliburton, other defense contractors and some of the same companies he has attacked?I'm really not surprised at all that these people have lied through their teeth about their personal holdings or that they do exactly what they tell other people not to do! Another hypocrite would be Barbra Streisand. She tells people that we are killing the earth and running out our natural resources. This from a woman whose water bill to water the lawn in her obscenely large private compound is in the 5-figure range per month! But Peter Schweizer seems to enjoy pointing out Michael Moore's hypocrisy the most. Here's other bits of hypocrisy...
In his blockbuster new book "Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy," Hoover Fellow Schweizer reveals the glaring contradictions between the public stances and real-life behavior of prominent liberals including Al Franken, Ralph Nader, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi...
The year that Moore claimed in "Stupid White Men" that he didn't own any stock, he told the IRS that a foundation totally controlled by Moore and his wife had more than $280,000 in corporate stock and nearly $100,000 in corporate bonds.Schweizer's last dig is probably the best one because it shows how far Moore's hypocrisy goes.
Over the past five years, Moore's holdings have "included such evil pharmaceutical and medical companies as Pfizer, Merck, Genzyme, Elan PLC, Eli Lilly, Becton Dickinson and Boston Scientific," writes Schweizer, whose earlier works include "The Bushes" and "Reagan's War."
"Moore's supposedly nonexistent portfolio also includes big bad energy giants like Sunoco, Noble Energy, Schlumberger, Williams Companies, Transocean Sedco Forex and Anadarko, all firms that 'deplete irreplaceable fossil fuels in the name of profit' as he put it in "Dude, Where's My Country?"
"And in perhaps the ultimate irony, he also has owned shares in Halliburton. According to IRS filings, Moore sold Halliburton for a 15 percent profit and bought shares in Noble, Ford, General Electric (another defense contractor), AOL Time Warner (evil corporate media) and McDonald's.
"When Moore flew to London to visit people at the BBC or promote a film, he took the Concorde and stayed at the Ritz. But he also allegedly booked a room at a cheap hotel down the street where he could meet with journalists and pose as a �man of humble circumstances.'"Why do liberals, especially Hollywood liberals, believe that the public is so stupid they wouldn't be able to figure out their lies? Could it be that they are that stupid and just believe that everyone must be like them? Ah, yes, Hollywood narcissism! Gotta love it!
That's hypocrisy with a capital H!
