Moore Ignorance

Michael Moore continues to demonstrate his ignorance. Per that eminent scholar;
“No woman ever invented the atomic bomb, built a smoke stack, initiated the Holocaust, melted the polar ice caps or organized a school shooting.”


I’m sorry. I can’t let this ignorance stand. Apparently he has never heard of;

Physicist Lise Meitner: collaborating with her nephew Otto Robert Frisch, also a noted physicist, she worked out a theoretical model of nuclear fission. A key step in the development of the atomic bomb.

Or, the tens of thousands of women that worked on the Manhattan Project including the Calutron Girls at the Y-12 Plant at Oak Ridge who operated the calutrons, large machines that separated Uranium 235 and 238.  Even without full knowledge of what they were doing, common for many employees at Oak Ridge because of the strict security protocols throughout the Manhattan Project, these women made an extraordinary contribution to the war effort.

He is apparently unaware of the Fortune 500 female CEOs that run companies that have smokes stacks and supposedly emit gases that are melting the polar ice caps. Women like;

Mary Barra; General Motors-manufacturer of gas guzzling air polluting machines

Indra Nooyi; PepsiCo- a water polluting company

Marillyn Hewson; Lockheed Martin- gasp a defense contractor

Phebe Novakovic; General Dynamics- OMG another defense contractor

Lynn Good; Duke Energy; A coal, gas and oil burning polluter

Debra Crew; Reynolds American-a tobacco company

Vicki Hollub; Occidental Petroleum- an evil fossil fuel company

And while the Holocaust was the creation of a madman; does he deny the involvement of women in carrying out the insanity. Women like;

The Aufseherinnen- Female guards in Nazi concentration camps during the Holocaust. Of the 55,000 guards who served in Nazi concentration camps, about 3,700 were women. In 1942, the first female guards arrived at Auschwitz and Majdanek from Ravensbrück. The year after, the Nazis began conscripting women because of a guard shortage.

And the assertion about school shootings? He apparently never heard of the Cleveland Elementary School shooting that took place on January 29, 1979, at a public elementary school in San Diego, California. The principal and a custodian were killed; eight children and a police officer were injured. A 16-year-old girl, Brenda Spencer, was convicted of the shootings.

I’m sure that, with a little more research, there are more cases where it can be shown that females are just as capable of killing their fellow man and damaging the environment as their male counterpart.

Until he gets his face out of a pizza and into a book I’m certain we will be subjected to Moore ignorance.
