Haha! I have beaten you once again, Quarto!
I was still booing him all the way.Originally posted by Quarto
Yeah, what an asshole! How dare he voice his opinion in public!
He had every right to say what he said, and there was no reason whatsoever why the Academy Awards would be the wrong time or place for it. It's a public forum, and most definitely the right place if you want to voice an opinion about a public matter. Especially considering that he had just been given an Oscar for Bowling For Columbine.
Since you couldn't understand the intricate languague of political satire, let me explain it go you. Micheal Moore has as much right to criticize the government, as the cartoonist has to right to criticize him. Micheal Moore is making a speech AGAINST the Iraqi people right to have free speech.Originally posted by Quarto
Woo, hooray for stupid cartoons that allow people to not say anything and still pretend they have a point.

You say the cartoon is stupid. Someone else says it’s insulting to even classify as “documentary” that nazi propaganda movie of Moore, and even more shameful to give an award to it.
Yeah, they are very funny. It's curious how some of their "targets" like so much to criticize, but don’t accept any criticism themselves.Originally posted by Phillip Tanaka
The thing is, they have satire for a lot of things there. They don't just pick on Michael Moore, they have a go at Iraq, America, North Korea, Frace, ect.
Godwin's Law prov. [Usenet] "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one." There is a tradition in many groups that, once this occurs, that thread is over, and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically lost whatever argument was in progress. Godwin's Law thus practically guarantees the existence of an upper bound on thread length in those groups. However there is also a widely- recognized codicil that any intentional triggering of Godwin's Law in order to invoke its thread-ending effects will be unsuccessful.

This thread had nothing to do with Godwin's law.

The thread ending convention, in practice, only applies when one or more sides of the argument are willing to abide by it, which is unlikely in a serious discussion about Nazis. However, even serious discussions of Nazis tend to go to hell rather quickly."Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies: As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the
