Michael Moore resolves to stop saying ‘I support the troops’ in 2013

Fox News: Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore took to his Huffington Post blog to  announce 10 of his 2013 New Year’s resolutions.

The fourth and fifth resolutions in particular, in which he criticizes American citizens for joining the armed forces, have sparked particular  controversy. The fourth reads:

4. Stop saying, “I support the troops.” I don’t. I used to. I understand why  so many enlisted after 9/11. Sadly, many of them were then trapped and sent off  to invade Iraq. I felt for all of them. I understood those who joined because of  a lousy economy. But at some point all individuals must answer for their  actions, and now that we know our military leaders do things that have nothing  to do with defending our lives, why would anyone sign up for this rogue organization?

Moore then followed with resolution No. 5:

5. Apologize for No. 4. I have enormous respect for anyone who would offer to  sacrifice their life to defend my right to live. Is there any greater gift one  can give another? It’s not the troops’ fault they’re sent to invade other countries for dubious reasons and outright lies. It’s OUR responsibility to  prevent this, to elect representatives who believe in peace, and to only put our  troops in harm’s way when it’s absolutely necessary. My uncle was killed in  World War II. Today would have been his 90th birthday. My dad still misses him.  Our family has served this country in the military since the Revolutionary War.  None of them watch Fox News.

Reactions ranged from anger to agreement to polite dismissal.

James E. Koutz, the National Commander of The American Legion, the nation’s  largest veteran’s organization, shrugged off Moore’s sentiments, noting that  everyone has a right to their opinions thanks to those who have fought for those  rights. “What I can say is that The American Legion fully supports all the men and  women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, always has and always will,” Koutz told  FOX411.“We don’t need to make a New Year’s resolution for that.”

In the comments following the blog post, a Huffington Post Community  Moderator defended Moore’s article:

“Michael is a controversial guy and that means he’s doing things right,” the  moderator wrote.

Other readers’ comments were mixed.

“Sometimes he is right and sometimes he isn’t. Controversy doesn’t however  mean right. Some things in society really shouldn’t be controversial,” one  wrote. Another added: “How about you lose some weight, so that the now  socialized medical system in the country, that you fought so hard for, doesn’t  have to spend millions trying to keep an obese lazy millionaire healthy.”

Many others on Huffington Post supported Moore’s stance.

“Love the soldiers, hate the wars is how I’ve always felt. I never did hate  the soldiers coming back from Vietnam like some people did,” one wrote. “But I  do hate these useless wars.”

But Moore’s article sparked widespread outrage in social media:

“Michael Moore’s Resolution: “Stop saying, “I support the troops.” I don’t.” -This is about as low as pitiful as someone can be. #disgusting, one tweeted.

“Michael Moore is done feeling sorry for the poor saps who enlisted in the  Armed Forces of the United States. He has withdrawn his support.  Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah. You couldn’t possibly make this stuff up,”  another wrote.

Poor, misguided fatty Michael Moore is. He really believes soldiers sign up because of “the lousy economy”? He has no idea of the real reason soldiers sign up to serve.

If he truly believes “that at some point all individuals must answer for their  actions”, why doesn’t he take his rage out on the one individual in charge of the troops, President Obama? That, of course, is a rhetorical question. Afterall, Obama is such a “smooth guy“…
