    Michael Moore Gets Sued by Wounded Iraq War Vet

    The NY Post reports that double-amputee Iraq-war vet, Sgt Peter Damon, is suing Michael Moore for $85 million for using footage of an old interview he gave while at Walter Reed Army Hospital without his permission, and using it out of context to "make him appear anti-war in 'Fahrenheit 9/11.'"
    Sgt. Peter Damon, 33, who strongly supports America's invasion of Iraq, said he never agreed to be in the 2004 movie, which trashes President Bush.
    In the 2003 interview, which he did at Walter Reed Army Hospital for NBC News, he discussed only a new painkiller the military was using on wounded vets.
    "They took the clip because it was a gut-wrenching scene," Damon said yesterday. "They sandwiched it in. [Moore] was using me as ammunition."
    Damon seems to "voice complaint about the war effort" in the movie, according to the lawsuit.
    But what the father of two from Middleborough, Mass., was really talking about was the "excruciating" pain he felt after he lost his arms when a Black Hawk helicopter exploded in front of him.
    Damon wasn't expressing any opinion about the war, the suit charges, but rather extolling the drug.
    "I just want everybody to know what kind of a guy Michael Moore is, and what kind of film this is," said Damon. He has appeared in two films attacking "Fahrenheit" -"Michael Moore Hates America" and "Fahrenhype 9/11."

    I like the part where he just walks into folks homes in Toronto. Granted you are highly unlikely to get shot doing this but an ass kicking would be a strong possibility. I think allot of his stuff is over the top but on the other hand so is some of the gun culture crap. I think parents whose kids shoot themselves and/or others should get prosecuted for involuntary manslaughter or some such thing. If you can't store a weapon properly you should not have one!

    He is but liberals still worship him and mindlessly ape the talking points from his crappy books and mocumentaries.

    What are his grounds for the 85$ million, sounds a bit steep to me.

    It can be something like now that he has no arms and the U.S government is not giving him anything for his comments against the war he felt like he has nothing and left all alone,so now he feels like Micheal moore betrayed him.

    Moore has fucking owned the shit out of the conservatives. Quite funny. They are so scared of him that they shit their pants and like to demonize him like he was the Anti-Christ. But again they think that Bush is the second coming of the Christ. That should give you a clue.

    MM is a dick,but he did come up with some interesting facts and figures that could not be argued against.Nobody sued him 'cause it was true!

    I still can't believe how the sepo media never "hit the nail home" on the connection between the Saudis and the Bushs.wankers.

    One thing that made me laugh in the movie Farenheit 9/11 was when Moore was following this senator to ask him to send his son in the army.The bastard did'nt even stop to answer.

    There were many things in that Documentry/movie that would make a person say,"Hey he is right."

    The movie was ok, not as inflamatory as I was expecting. I didn't learn anything new in it. For some it was an eye opener. Of course Boon Mee was too coward to go see it. I bet SK didn't make it either.

    It's usually the Foks-news crowd who have a go at him, because one of their friends said they know someone who's seen the movie, and it's anti-American or something...

    Who cares?

    I've seen the movie and the lawsuit is a little....late.

    And he's asking for....a lot.


    There is nothing political about this: it's about something else.

    I don't get FOX news. I only get CNN and BBC. So what do you make of that wiseguy ?

    I saw the bullshit boring ass movie Moore made. It was stupid, cheaply made and lined his pockets with well deserved capitalist dollars. He sells shit and leftoids and losertarians seem to love crap. The only people being conned are the ones who believe Moore's crap ...and for that matter Noam Chomsky.
