Michael Moore Matching Donations to Cordoba Initiative

Ion this day of remembrance, lest we forget Michael Moore is a race-baiting –

“. . .an office you can’t win unless you smear the black man . . .’
Kool Aid swilling –

“What we are witnessing is not just a candidate but a profound, massive public movement for change . . .”

apparently brainless nincompoop.

"No one has less reason to be scared than Americans."

No, maybe no one has less reason to be scared of being killed by terrorists here in the U.S. than Americans, but there is a whole lot for Americans to be scared of. And, deep down, they are.

That's true, N E. Americans are afraid that Teh Negro and Teh Mezkin and Teh Gey and Teh Feminist Teh Islam will come and sap away their precious bodily fluids. That's a lot to be afraid of. The question is whether those threats are real. You seem to have missed that.

There are real reasons to worry in the US, but most Americans would evidently invent dangers and be afraid of them rather than the real threats. I suppose one could argue that they cling to their fake fears so strongly in order to avoid facing the real threats, but that's not what the sentence you quoted was about.

People in other countries don't have so much to be afraid of being killed by terrorists, but they do have to fear being killed by US forces, either directly or through infrastructure destruction. (Or by being tortured or murdered by US-trained local forces.) Children who died of dysentery and other easily treatable diseases because the US bombed power plants and water treatment plants, were killed by the US as surely as if a predator zone had scored a direct hit on them.

Does the current controversy regarding the Cultural Center have echoes of the past?

"Black Muslims Hear Echoes Of Jim Crow In Current Anti-Muslim Furor"

Maybe I'd donate if the "mosque" had a big assed minaret and was really at ground zero and was run by Muslims that were not Sufis and hadn't worked for Bush.

Moore can go ask his asshole dp buddies for money. Maybe Spielberg will let him go through his sofa for loose change.
