My New Hero--Sgt. Peter Damon
"Fahrenheit 9/11 is a twisted, dishonest, paranoid, and hateful fantasy.
To manipulate with frauds and propaganda is to attack democracy itself."
--David Kopel from the Independence Institute, life-long democrat who voted for Nader in 2000.
Hats off to Iraq Veteran, Sgt. Peter Damon who is suing Michael Moore for $85 million for mis-portraying him in his sorry excuse for a documentary, "Fahrenheit 911". Damon lost both of his arms in a Black Hawk tire explosion. He was videotaped talking about his injuries for an NBC special and Moore snagged a clip and twisted it to make him appear anti-war.
Damon himself states that he, "agrees with and supports the President and the United States' war effort, and he was not left behind." His lawyer has said, "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."
The distortion of Damon's comments only scratches the surface of exposing all the lies and manipulative illusions that are in this ridiculous movie. David Kopel has done his homework and has written "59 Deceits in Fahrenheit 911". Check it out, it makes you shake your head at how much fraud was in this movie. How it can win awards for being a documentary is a joke. Since David Kopel is a democrat there are things I disagree with him on but he's done a great job of exposing Michael Moore.
