What's with the aggressive anti-Labor newsgroup spamming?

    I hope this isn't an indicator of future election campaigning!
    With no disclosure rules and simple originator-hiding internet newsgroups
    are just going to be flooded with all these bullshit political broadcasts
    disguised as discussions!
    Lets pray that Labor (and the Green, Democrats, One-Nation et al) don't
    start doing it too!

    I have SLRN set up to kill any individual post that's crossposted to
    aus.politics or to more than 4 groups.

    makes things much easier.

    Just get a decent newsreader and set up a score file to stop anything that
    comes from aus.politics all at once, instead of a one at time basis.

    No no Gerry it's Anti -American to be pro Australia's interests, just
    ask Johnny, he's been blathering on about how anti-American it is to not
    want to be ass reamed by the Yankees.

    The lie:
    "We won't just automatically click our heels and follow the Americans."
    John Howard, September 2002
    The facts:
    But one year earlier John Howard offered George Bush a blank cheque just
    two days after September 11, 2001 when he said: "I've indicated
    Australia will provide all support that might be requested of us by the
    United States in relation to any action that might be taken."

    His forté seems to be as a Pied Piper for the easily deluded.

    It's sad the way people declare their belief in him without any
    attempt at ascertaining the facts for themselves.

    Im obliged to agree, the number of deliberately misleading omissions
    make a rather time wasting exhibition of the movie... glad it was free
    or I would have been wanting a refund.

    Well given the enormous importance of UseNet as a medium for disseminating
    one's important opinions - I'm happy that Moore got up and spoke, and that
    people paid money for him to speak. Farenheit 9/11 is highly biased and
    polemic, but it provokes debate and that is a good thing 'coz people need to
    start thunkin for demselves.

    Sure, some people will blindly accept what Moore says, some will blindly
    reject it, but some will sit in the middle and ask "well is he telling all
    the truth, part of it or none of it?"

    It's just entertainment Doug (like the pictures of Bush as a monkey or the
    film-clips of his mispronunciations).
    It doesn't have to be true or accurate and it's certainly not gonna' change
    my opinion of Bush any!

    I've thought Bush a moron and a danger to my well-being ever since he made
    that spine-chilling axis-of-evil announcement.
    This is just a chance to chuckle a bit as I'm kissing my ass goodbye......

    If it were marketed as a comedy I'd agree with you. Unfortunately it's
    categorised as a documentary. I've since watched 'Bowling for
    Columbine' and read 'Michael Moore is a Big Fat Stupid White Man'. The
    man himself has quite a history...

    If anything it's a documentary on how to make a propaganda film but
    his greatest scam in my opinion was the Charlton Heston interview in
    'Bowling for Columbine'. That sequence would've given Josef Goebbels a
    chubby.
    No one seems to know what effect it's going to have. Some have
    certainly changed their opinion after seeing the movie, others have
    warned of a possible backlash against the Democrats over the dodgy
    methods used in the film.

    Wise Democrats have disassociated themselves from the film.

    I reckon even Linda Lovelace couldn't swallow 'Fahrenheit 9/11'...

    So you run a character assassination of a lifelong champion of civil
    rights and falsely portray him as a redneck racist?

    That's not journalism, activism or entertainment. That's just sick.
    From;
    http://www.duamm.blogspot.com/ (Democrats United Against Michael
    Moore)

    "We firmly believe that, should the Democratic leadership continue to
    embrace Michael Moore or fail to unequivocally condemn his tactics, it
    could very well be at the peril of John Kerry in the November
    election."

    Your support for the Big Fat Stupid White Man and your endorsement of
    his methods doesn't help your credibility any, Jerry.

    Even the left wing of aus.moto go no further than to state that his
    cause may be valid but his methods are counterproductive in that they
    just don't hold up under scrutiny and make it look like lies have to
    be told to make the case against George W. Bush.

    Back to the motorcycle content;

    Sorry that I can't do anything to change your inability to accept that
    compulsory helmet laws have not resulted in any significant reduction
    in motorcycle death rates anywhere in the world. In that, I may as
    well be arguing with Baghdad Bob.

    And this is what I found:
    And yet he supported Ralph Nader (A Democrat to the left of Gore) in
    2000.

    Get back to me when you *have* read the article, supporting evidence
    and Moore's responses.

    Just like Moore himself, throwing a tanty, putting fingers in your
    ears, closing your eyes and screaming out that it's all a conspiracy
    won't wash in here, matey.

    Charlton Heston was a friend of Martin Luther King and marched with
    him in 1963. Heston led the actor's component of the march, which led
    to the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
    http://tinyurl.com/5j2fv
    "CRA '64 transformed American society. It prohibited discrimination in
    public facilities, in government, and in employment. This simple
    statement understates the large shift in American society that
    occurred as a result. The Jim Crow laws in the South were finally
    swept away, and it was illegal to compel segregation of the races in
    schools, housing, or hiring. Although initially enforcement powers
    were weak, they grew over the years, and such later programs as
    affirmative action were made possible by the Civil Rights Act."
    http://tinyurl.com/45ztg

    Heston chose a black actress for his leading lady in 1971's 'The Omega
    Man" and got jiggy with her in the film at a time when interracial
    marriage was still banned in many US states.
    http://tinyurl.com/4v3dl ;
    " The Omega Man shows its age the most, and is best viewed as a
    historic relic most significant for being part of the Heston sci-fi
    genre and its landmark place in interracial sexual relationships."

    There's a lot more but as you don't trust what I say, look it up for
    yourself. You've got a net connection.
    This paragraph says a lot more about you than it does me, Jerry.
