Excerpted from Noel Sheppard‘s piece in Newsbusters: On New Year’s Eve, schlockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore made a resolution to stop saying he supports the troops.

On Thursday, Moore put an exclamation point on this anti-American insanity publishing a piece at the Huffington Post entitled “Those Who Say ‘I Support the Troops’ Really Don’t.”

“I don’t support the troops, America, and neither do you,” Moore began. “I am tired of the ruse we are playing on these brave citizens in our armed forces. And guess what — a lot of these soldiers and sailors and airmen and Marines see right through the bullshit of those words, ‘I support the troops!,’ spoken by Americans with such false sincerity — false because our actions don’t match our words.”

“These young men and women sign up to risk their very lives to protect us,” Moore continued, “and this is what they get in return.”

Moore then elaborated on six offenses either suffered by our troops or thrust upon them by Americans.

These included: being “sent off to wars that have NOTHING to do with defending America or saving our lives;” having their homes foreclosed on them while they’re overseas; regular citizens never visiting VA hospitals to see how people there are being treated; female soldiers being raped; no one helping homeless vets, and; suicide.

In Moore’s view, since he and most other Americans aren’t doing anything about these issues, we don’t really support the troops.
