Why the Left can't win in America anymore.
I just came back from the theater after seeing this film on its

second day of showing. It is a very good movie that concisely

details why modern conservative philosophy dwarfs that of

contemporary liberalism, which has become virtually indistinguishable from Leftism.

After logging on to IMDb.com, I was not very surprised to find

15 reviews already posted, and many of the bad reviews came

from people who haven't seen the film, and 219 votes cast with an

average of 3.1. These ratings and reviews say much more about

the modern American Left than it does about the film. In the film

Chetwynd shows clips of antiwar protesters. They are a good

representation of the today's Left: mean, hate-filled, pompous and

narcissistic. And when they have no coherent arguments to bolster

their bigoted ideas, they do what all reactionaries do, resort to

name calling and, eventually, violence. After all, they are so much

smarter than us ordinary people. And what would we ever do

without them to tell us how moronic we and our president are?

As this movie points out, it is in fact Al Gore and the corrupt

Democratic party that attempted to steal the 2000 election. Michael

Moore has a habit of saying he feels bad for "stupid white men",

and even John McCain, because they don't understand that they

are on their way out, but it is the hate-filled Left that needs pity.

Although they would like it to be different, it is ordinary Americans,

not the university or Hollywood elite, who decide who will be the

President of The United States of America. And though Michael

Moore runs around in his t-shirt and baseball cap, and his phony

working class hero routine, claiming to speak for the American

people, he doesn't. He speaks instead for those who hate this

country and have only contempt for the ordinary people who will

vote George Bush in as president once again in a week and a half,

despite the attempts of the "we know better" Left to steal this

election too.

In this film several of those interviewed talked of George

Bush's belief in American exceptionalism. But this kind of talk only

irritates and even enrages those who hate and have contempt for

the values of middle America and its belief in American

exceptionalism. The elite in this country would prefer that we

dispense with heartland values and replace them with the smug

indifference of Western Europe, and the pretentious elitism of

Hollywood blowhards, like Michael Moore.

Unfortunately for those who try to diminish the power of this film

by stuffing the ballot box with fraudulent votes, there is a paradigm

shift afoot, and they are living in the world of yesterday, where they

could pretend to advocate great ideas like human rights while

doing little or nothing to help those dying in torture chambers and

those stuffed into mass graves. The truth comes out eventually

and the time has come, thanks in large part to George Bush, when

all with open minds can see clearly who really cares about the

oppressed in this world. The shift is occurring before our eyes,

and the American Left has nothing left to convince America of the

validity of their failed ideas. They have already compared George

Bush to Hitler and have said he stole the Presidency. What do they

have left? There is nothing more they can say or offer, accept vitriol

and defeatism. The only way they can win is to stuff the ballot box

like they have done on this site. Why? Because they don't trust the

American people to make up their minds for themselves.

With the help of films like this one, and the persistence of

George Bush, the lies of the hate-filled Left will be uncovered, one

by one, until those who promote those lies will be exposed for

what they are, nihilists who hate the values that America

represents, and can be found on any coin, "Liberty", "E Pluribus

Unum", and "In God We Trust".

"Celsius 41.11" is just one more nail in the coffin of the bad

ideas of Leftism. Leftist reactionaries are trying to hold back the

tide, but it is too late. I would advise Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson

and Michael Moore, in a last ditch effort to hold off progress, to

stuff themselves into Moore's limousine and barnstorm middle

America on behalf of John Kerry, pontificating to the people they

view as simpletons, about the evils of George Bush and the

America he represents. That should seal his fate and the fate of

the reactionary Left in this country. Then maybe the adults in the

Democratic party will come to their senses and make it the party of

Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman again, rather than the party

of Michael Moore.
