This Looks More and Moore Sciento-illogical
Remember when I said yesterday that watching Minister Moore rant about radical extremists reminded me of Tom Cruise's infamous Scientology defense video
? The one where he doesn't blink for, like, nine minutes? Yeah, that one. Anyway, remember how that video got more or less disappeared from the nets? You can find it, but you have to search hard. I didn't make the comparison lightly - I made it after watching the linked video myself.
Well now comes today's entry by Michael Geist in his blog, reporting on an apparent attempt to cover up those remarks. Moore denies making them and (as of now) the official version of the video doesn't show him making them. Am I the one hallucinating here?
Well, maybe not. According to Geist, "IT World Canada reporter Brian Jackson compiled his own video of the event" and that video shows the remarks. Here, go watch the video and judge for yourself: http://video.itworldcanada.com/?bcpid=7044989001&bctid=101481423001
You won't have to watch for long. At 0:38 into the video, Minister Moore starts in on "radical extremists." So, Minister, what do you call people who lie and suppress the truth about their own past remarks? (If you're American, you call them "our former president" but that's beside the point.)
