Fahrenheit 9/11 Love Mail...
By a 3-to-1 margin* the theatre chains of America that are showing Fahrenheit 9/11 have received positive e-mail that supports the decision to show the film.
Below are a sampling of excerpts from the 'love' mail that I have been able to obtain.
While these are not as enjoyable to read as the hate mail in the previous post I have been able to find some good ones that are both fun to read and pertinent.
-- PLAY THE MOVIE OR THEY WILL CONTROL YOUR EVERY FART…AND BOWEL MOVEMENT.
-- In this era when saying *anything* that could be construed as negative towards the current Administration, brands one a traitor, it's refreshing to see there are still individuals out there not afraid to refuse to give into such moronic thinking.
Thank you for allowing the public to see this extremely important movie. As a survivor of September 11th, I'm eternally grateful for your not bowing to the extreme right's pressure on this.
-- My little brother and Army Ranger Andrew ____ was killed in Iraq. In fact, the date he was killed was June 25, 2003 by a roadsid bomb and ambush attack. Michael Moore's film is going to debut on the one-year anniversary of my brother's death. There is great controversy over this film, which is to be expected, but the public should be able to decide for themselves whether or not they choose to accept Mr. Moore's view of the situation. Thanks for your willingness to show it.
-- Thanks for having the balls to show Farenheit 911. You are the true Americans.
--I've lived a fair number of years under repress regimes throughout the world, and seen what it's like when the flow of information and exchange of ideas is controlled by churches, states, or other groups. So I wanted to congratulate you for getting your address listed as an enemy by right wing groups seeking to stop Michael Moore's film. When censors hate you, you should be proud.
-- Funny how the conservatives send us to war to free and liberate another country when back at home our basic rights are constantly threatened by the political right. SHOW THIS MOVIE! SHOW THIS MOVIE! SHOW THIS MOVIE!
--I am amazed to see that a group that claims it is motivated for the good of our country is willing to hijack the 1st amendment for fear of political blowback. I have not yet seen the film, of course, but to have someone take away my right to view it and exercise my free opinion of it is far more anti-American than anything Michael Moore could throw together.
-- Please don't be cowed by these "Move America Forward" Fascist nut bars. Show Fahrenheit 911. Keep our 1st Amendment rights alive.
-- I WILL SEE IT AT LEAST TEN TIMES AND YOU WILL MAKE MONEY
-- My husband and I are Army veterans; our son is currently serving in Iraq with the 1st Cavalry Division. I just wanted to thank you for not giving into political pressure and for showing the movie, Farenheit 9/11. We owe it to our soldiers to ensure that all of the facts about the invasion and occupation of Iraq are made available for the public to review; accountability requires a review of all facts.
-- A group of my friends and I will go see this movie at one of your theaters and I promise we'll buy a ton of overpriced snacks and drinks just to support yall for showing it.
-- Play movie live free or perish
* I wrote yesterday that the ratio of positive to negative was 2-to-1 but the access that I got to these e-mails made me realize it is more like 3-to-1.
