Thread Name: Anti-Moore 'Revoke the Oscar' website
Subject: Anti-Moore 'Revoke the Oscar' website
I can't recall now where on the forum I read comments/questions as to whether there was really a website trying to foment a backlash against Moore winning the Academy Award for 'Bowling for Columbine'.

The extremes that the right wing nuts will go to these days, to destroy people with whom they disagree, still takes my breath away. It is one thing to disagree with someone's politics. But this stuff goes so far beyond that, it is incomprehensible to me.

Although I suppose it is no coincidence that the PayPal buttons are displayed on the front page of both sites. The only thing better than destroying the lives of the people whose politics they dislke is, I suppose, making money while doing it.
