Michael Moore’s Stupid White Men


The Justice Department disclosed on Tuesday it will file suit in three Florida counties, Missouri and Tennessee, charging voting rights violations in the 2000 presidential election.

The suits will allege disparate treatment of minority voters, improper purging of voter rolls, failure to provide bilingual assistance to voters, and failure to provide access to disabled voters.

But the suits will not seek to overturn the presidential election’s results, which were decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. They will merely try to ensure that local governments take specific actions to safeguard voting rights in future elections.

Well, filmmaker and author Michael Moore has been speaking around the country about what he calls the stolen election. He has also written a book about the election and the political disempowerment of the majority of people in this country.

But after September 11, he ran into problems with his publisher. Harper Collins had agreed to publish the book, titled ??Stupid White Men, and had already printed 50,000 copies when the planes crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Then they told him the political climate wasn’t right.

It isn’t surprising. Harper Collins is owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, whose net worth is $ 7.5 billion. His media empire includes News Corporation, Fox News, 20th century Fox, and some 150 newspapers and magazines around the world. News Corp is one of the largest donors to the Republican Party.

Here is Michael Moore, talking about what happened after September 11.
