My Favorite Scene from Fahrenheit 911
I really liked the scene where the mother that lost her son in Iraq goes to Washington with Michael Moore. She starts a conversation with a very strange woman who has camped out in front of the White house and also claims to have lost a son. Another woman walks by, sees the cameras, and decides to get involved. She exclaims "This is staged, you didn't lose a son!" But the mother has lost her son. We know that for a fact. The doubting woman proceeds to grill her with zeal and confidence ,"What's your son's name, where was he stationed?" The mother answers and convinces the doubting woman, who then backs off and walks away in shock.
This is what should happen in America when the evidence against Bush is presented. But it does not. I made the case against Bush to a Republican from Montana recently. In the end, he had no defense for Bush, but he said, "You're right, but I just feel more comfortable with the Republicans. They have my religious view." He is also the owner of 5 guns and hates Michael moore, ofcourse. This is what we are up against. If a recording surfaced, that proved the worst about Bush, he'd still get 45% of the vote. Why? because people are stubborn, just like me. I know for a fact that Bush is bad and completely dishonest. But Republicans know the opposite to be true. The attraction of being part of a club is too strong. They will never admit that they are wrong, because it would mean that everything they understand about the world is wrong. It's similar to the way that parents will deny that their kids are doing drugs until the evidence is too overwhelming. It's really quite hopeless.
