Wall Street Journal suppresses FAIR Founder John
Tanton's protest—but VDARE.Com Rescues It Anyway.
From: Randall Burns
Michael Moore's new
Fahrenheit 9/11 has broken box-office records.
In doing so, it is remaking the genre of documentaries.
What are the
implications for the
National Question? Well, Moore, for all his liberal
credentials, does in fact broach these topics:
- The relative lack of supervision on the
US borders. (Moore shows an example of a
one-hundred mile stretch of Oregon
coastline that is
guarded by one overworked guard with little or no
training on dealing with illegal immigration, not to
mention terrorist infiltration).
issues puts Moore ahead of most of the 'Open-border',
Republican leaders, including hypocrites like
Trent Lott who supported
Also worth noting:
Moore proved that
controversial, low-budget documentary films that
criticize George Bush and
corporate leadership can make money.
Can the community
concerned about the National Question do anything
similar? In this day and age of cheap Sony Camcorders,
we could see the money people becoming irrelevant—fast.
