Hugh Hewitt offers a text of Michael Moore's recent Boston speech. Moore, in town for the Democratic National Convention, apparently wanted to express his solidarity with the troops:
But I know it was rough. I know in those first days of the war, I know. I stood on an Oscar stage five days into the war. I know what the mood was like. It was not easy to say we are being led to war for fictitious reasons, right? (applause) And those of you who felt the same way at the beginning of this war?remember what it was like at work or school? You had to be kind of careful, right? And if you expressed any opposition to the war, you had to immediately say but, but I support the troops, right. But, but I support the troops. You didn?t need to say that. Of course you support the troops! You?ve always supported the troops. Who are the troops? The troops are those that come from the other side of the tracks. The troops are the people who come from families who?ve been abused by the Bush Administration! You?ve always supported them! You?ve always been on their side! (applause) No one should question that! The way that you don?t support the troops is to send them into harms way when it isn?t necessary. The way that you hate the troops is when you send them off, some of them to their deaths, so that your rich benefactors can line their pockets even more. The Halliburtons, the oil companies, that is anti-American. That is unpatriotic. You do not support the troops when you do that! (applause)
I can only imagine the sheer terror Moore must have felt on that Oscar stage. We should all admire his unflinching bravery. What do you guys think?
