Still Can’t Buy Class

When Marine Staff Sgt. Raymond Plouhar was killed in Iraq it made national headlines, not for being a story of service and sacrifice, but because Plouhar had been unflatteringly portrayed in his role of military recruiter in Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11. One week later, Michael Moore still doesn’t consider this news interesting enough to merit mention on his website.

A search of the propagandist’s website for “Plouhar” will only return a transcript of his appearance in Fahrenheit, accompanied by “anti-recruitment” editorial material from a far-left “peace” group. Of course, the premise of that particular part of the film was that predatory military recruiters were convincing young Americans to do something they were unwilling to do. Sgt. Plouhar’s service in Iraq exposes this as the lie it is.

One would think Moore could summon the decency to make note of Plouhar’s service, but that would further undercut his already discredited propaganda effort. Like Paris Hilton, Michael Moore proves again, that no matter how rich you might become, you just can’t buy class.
