Here’s A Few “Cowards” For Michael Moore

I mean, just look at this guy

Between 10 November and 17 December 1942, during the Battle of Stalingrad, he killed 225 soldiers and officers of the Wehrmacht and other Axis armies, including 11 enemy snipers.

Prior to 10 November, he killed 32 Axis soldiers with the standard-issue Mosin–Nagant rifle (effective range of 900 metres). Between October 1942 and January 1943, Zaytsev made an estimated 400 kills, some at distances of more than 1,000 metres.

What a chickenshit.

And don’t even get me started on the biggest coward of all time: Simo Häyhä

Hayha’s involvement in the Winter War was very extraordinary. With his Mosin-Nagant M91 rifle, he would dress in white winter camouflage, and carry with him only a day’s worth of supplies and ammunition. While hiding out in the snow, he would then take out any Russian who entered his killing zone. Hayha preferred to use iron sights on his gun instead of scopes, as scopes had a tendency to glare in the sunlight and reveal his position. While he may sound like an ordinary sniper, this was far from the case: over the course of 100 days during the winter he racked up over 500 kills, earning him the nickname “The White Death”. The Soviets feared him so much that they mounted numerous counter sniper and artillery attacks to get rid of him, all of which failed miserably. However, on March 6th, 1940, he was hit in the jaw by an explosive round from a counter sniper. He fell into an 11-day coma, awakening on the day that the war ended.

In the -20 to -40C weather he would lie all day in the snow, and always kept snow in his mouth so that his breath would not steam and give away his position.

And no scope.

The Ultimate Coward.

    For a filmmaker whose movies tend to focus on ironic situations (“Bowling For Columbine”), Mr. Moore seems to have missed the irony that those “cowards” fought and died for his freedom, his right, to call them “cowards”. As they say in Princess Bride, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

    Moore isn’t a film-maker but rather a polemicist using a camera rather than a pen.

    For what it’s worth, he’s also a serial liar and a fraud.

    I thought Moore had been forgotten already. Sorry to see I’m wrong.

    As for Simo Häyhä, I’m very glad to hear he lived a long (and, I hope, very happy) life. I read that article. AMAZING man.
