free republic launching boycott to silence michael moore

DISNEY/MIRAMAX CONTACT INFO! Financing Michael Moore's 2004 "Attack Film" on Bush is UNACCEPTABLE! ^ | 5/11/03 | Recovering_Democrat

Posted on 05/11/2003 5:39 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

Michael Moore is trying to tie Bush to bin Laden! His film is scheduled to be released in 2004, in the middle of the campaign! And Disney's Miramax is reportedly financing this hit piece!

Of course we must boycott Disney and Miramax. But letters (hard copy ones, ones they have to hold in their hands and look at) are another effective way of getting the message out that America doesn't want Michael Moore's Bush-bashing films in their marketplace!!

Here are some contact numbers and street addresses to mail your letters to.

Please remember: the person who answers the phone may have NO IDEA what you're talking about...they're mainly receptionists and communication specialists who're trained to forward messages and calls. Don't abuse them. And don't abuse the reader(s) of your letters! But be firm and matter of fact--you do not think this decision is wise.

If you're a stockholder, maybe you'll want to sell your stock. If you're a parent, maybe you won't rush out to buy "Treasure Island" for your kid. (Not that you would anyway! ha ha) If you're a grandparent, maybe you won't take the grandkids to DisneyWorld after all. Whatever. Disney's tentacles are so long and reach so far I cannot imagine anyone not having some connection to the company. Even ABC is owned by Disney.

Remember: Disney's subsidiary MIRAMAX is financing the movie, so you can contact BOTH companies. The head of Miramax is a guy named Harvey Weinstein.

Go Mr. Moore (english)

George Bush senior has been a paid conssultant for the binladen group, Ossama Bin Laden family's company for many years, and this is a matter of public record (look it up for yourself in the New York times archives). So is the fact that George Bush jr. gave over twenty million dollars to the taliban government four months before the Sept. 11th attacks, for "anti-drug opperations." The connections between the Bush family and the Bin Ladens are very clear, and very public. Micheal Moore is a great filmmaker and will, I'm sure, make a wonderful picture describing in lurid detail all the ways that chimp-eared mother-fucker is screwing the American people. Finally the Disney corporation is doing something worth while in sponsering his film. I'm going to see it twice.

That goodness there are voices that support truth instead of lies. Oh and thanks to the dumbass that made this post. Because of people like you Micheal Moore gets more free advertising than he could possibly buy.

Rock On Miramax!
