This debate has a point, and it deals with the concept of socialism. Socialism is no longer considered a "dirty" political word. It is now acceptable, even preferable, that American politicians take on the mantel of European socialism.

    And is it propaganda to point out the truth about Moore and Chomsky? Does anyone forget that Chomsky denied the killing fields were taking place, despite the massive evidence to the contrary? Moore is to Cuba what Chomsky is to Cambodia.
    Chomsky never denied what happened in Cambodia. As for Moore, what has he denied about Cuba?

    I will give him one thing. He and the right wing share many of the same misconceptions about what capitalism is. Given those misconceptions, capitalism would be evil, and it would be pretty despicable to defend it. If only for that reason, he's a better man than Limbaugh.
    I would have to agree.

    Prove to me where Moore supports totalitarianism. You assert it without actual evidence and instead with a leap of logic that doesn't pass muster. That technique is very similar to right-wing goofball websites. Thus the accusation that you are quoting them.

    You base your assertion without providing a fact behind it. He supports socialism, therefore he supports totalitarianism. Wrong. You could have just as easily said: he supports socialism, therefore he supports democratic socialism, such as in France, Norway, or other nations whose systems he has expressed a liking for.

    You didn't do that. You created a logical fallacy, failed to provide a fact to back your assertion or belief, and are therefore even more guilty of Moore of propaganda.

    To dislike him is one thing (and utterly fair) - to say he supports Hitler and Pol Pot is utterly useless hyperbole.

    Fat.
    Greedy.
    Dishonest.
    Socialist (redundant, see first three terms)

    Nothing more needs saying.

    I enjoy watching some of his stuff for entertainment value but for th most part he's uninformed.
    So for all intents and purposes I voted negative.
