Michael Moore Boycotts Georgia

Following the execution of Troy Davis, a man convicted for the murder of a police officer despite the overwhelming amount of disagreement from American citizens, Michael Moore has thought it best to boycott the state of Georgia.

Troy even begged for a lie detector test to save his life, but it wasn't given.

Not only were everyday citizens outraged, Hollywood got involved too. Alec Baldwin, Kim Kardashian, and Diddy (to name a few) all called on the power of Twitter to send a message to the peachy state.

Unfortunately, it was too late. Troy was given lethal injection Wednesday night, and it shook America's belief in the justice system once again.

And now, among many others, Michael Moore is boycotting the state, urging:

I encourage everyone I know to never travel to Georgia, never buy anything made in Georgia, to never do business in Georgia. I will ask my publisher to pull my book from every Georgia bookstore. And if they won't do that, I will donate every dime of every royalty my book makes in Georgia to help defeat the racists and killers who run that state. I ask all Americans with a conscience to shun anything and everything to do with the murderous state of Georgia.

While Georgia definitely isn't the first state to commit a controversial execution (lookin' at you, Texas), it has definitely become a target for discussion.

But we have to ask ourselves, how can we REALLY strengthen the system? Should this become an issue we focus on more thoroughly when electing officials? Should we, as a country, seek injustice out and protest BEFORE it's too late?

With the West Memphis Three case for example, national support began in the beginning stages, and luckily those men are freed today. But what about the countless others who have to endure this?

    there hasnt been one person executed in this country in 50 years that anyone can name…but you get a black guy killing a white police officer and the lib loons come out. these are the people who will be doing all the hate and dirty tricks during the election. facts dont matter. history doenst matter. the constitution doesnt matter. just a far left communist agenda.

    It didn't shake my belief in the justice system, in fact, it made it stronger. Cop killer should've died. Everyone in prison is 'innocent'! Holy crap, if you can't do the time, don't commit the crime!!! I love the way you try to imply that most Americans are against the death penalty. I think you'd be surprised if you did an actual count of voting age citizens. What about the justice for the victims for a change?

  3. deed says – reply to this


    i dont agree in death penalty, but SHUT UP MICHAEL MOORE !!

    People aren't on death row for a short time. They go through appeals and such. Where was all of this 'outrage' during that process? You can't just jump on the bandwagon now because you want to and expect me to respect your opinion.

  5. 5

    Trust me, we in Georgia can definitely do without Michael Moore. If anything, this is a blessing. Crazy bastard.

    "Hello, I am Michael Moore. I am now worth hundreds of millions of dollars from my movie Farenheit 9-11. When I said that we need to get the rich to listen before it gets violent in the United States, I didn't mean the ultra rich, I meant the middle class white people who are Christian, Agnostic or Secular or Atheist. Harvey Weinstein I now knight you the new Neberkenezer. Now fuck my ass why I watch the CNN stock ticker, Harvey….and where the hell is my bag of Rolo's!?!?!?!?"

    the unfortunate reality of this case is troy davis was convicted not by dna evidence linking him to a gun, but by eye witness testimony - one person after the next, many, something like nine witnesses - that he killed this police officer.

    troy davis may very well have been innocent. but we'll never know because so many people involved lied, quite posibly troy davis himself. we will never, ever know the full truth of this crime. by the way, those eye witnesses weren't a bunch of white people looking for a hanging. they were all black people. black people who years after the fact came forward to say they lied, they were pressured to lie, they were blah blah blah. they have blood on their hands. everyone involved in this case has blood on their hands.

    but for michael fucking moore to insert himself in this situation…? what the fuck?! hey mike, i've never seen one of your movies. i live in georgia. we're not missing out. take your sanctimonious fat ass back to hollywood. you obviously cannot relate outside that state.

    Michael Moore, you are an idiot. How is hurting Georgia's economy (in THIS economy) going to bring this man back or change anything? "Georgia" is full of people who work hard and own businesses and NEED business in this economy, and here you go, with all YOUR money, telling the world to hurt these people who have NOTHING TO DO WITH this execution. Nice.

  9. 9

    I from Georgia and had nothing to do with this so…fuck Michael Moore.

    If he's so innocent, then why did EVERY judge that reviewed the case, the appeals all decide in the SAME way? that includes liberal and conservative judges alike. what's really amazing is the very same day this turd was executed, another man was executed - a white supremecist. Bet none of the typical hollywood idiots were shouting about his execution, were they?

  11. 11

    Not giving a man a fair trial or reopen a case when new evidence points towards his innocense is bad, really bad.
    The world is watching and how Troy Davis' case was handeled has reflected badly on the U.S.A. For shame.

  12. 12

    Michael Moore is looking to be relevant again and get the media spotlight back on his ample caboose. BUT the man was already executed and there is no bringing him back. Moore's time might be better spent finding ways to make sure this never happens again instead of making it about himself.

  13. 13

    Best news I've heard today. I look forward to never ever having to see his mug when we move to Savannah next year.

    Only those who are completely ignorant of the FACTS of the case against Troy Davis (street name "RAH", meaning "Rough as Hell") think there is ANY possibility of his innocence. Unlike what you have been bullshitted into believing by Davis, his lawyers, and his family, there were NOT "nine witnesses, most of whom recanted". There were THIRTY FOUR witnesses who testified against him. He shot that officer in front of a crowd of horrified people, and ALL of them clearly identified him and testified without recantation that he was the shooter. The few so-called "recantations" were so non-credible that Davis's lawyers REFUSED TO PUT THEM ON THE STAND at his appeals, even with Davis's life on the line. They were fed to the media, instead.
    I'm sick and tired of hearing people who are ignorant of the actual case against Troy Davis claiming that there was a lack of credible testimony or evidence for his guilt. And I'm tired of people continuing to spread misinformation about the evidence against him, the number of witnesses, and the so-called "recantations". And it makes me sick to my stomach to hear people call him "innocent" and talk about him as if he was some sort of saint. Troy Davis was a vicious thug, who brutilized and killed people without conscience, and as far as I'm concerned, the world is a better place with that scumbag in the ground.

    The death penalty sucks, but it doesn't make Michael Moore any less a MORON!

    Davis went through multiple appeals, including an appeal to the US Supreme Court. He had EVERY CHANCE to present all the arguments, evidence, and testimony he had at his disposal for his innocence . ALL of the appeals courts examined the testimony and evidence in detail, considered ALL of the arguments from both the defense and the prosecution, and found that they had NO reason to overturn the conviction and sentence. They upheld the sentence because they agreed that he was guilty beyond ANY reasonable doubt. As a matter of fact, the appeals court's findings implied Davis’s appeal case was so poor it wouldn’t have passed ANY test. The judge wrote that Davis's entire appeal's case was, “largely smoke and mirrors.”
    All of the supposed "last minute evidence of innocence" that Davis's supporters are all in an uproar about were NOTHING resembling "last minute", and ALL of it had been heard and considered by the courts. MOST of what they are in an uproar about is nothing more than bullshit thrown out to the media by Davis, his lawyers, and his family in a last-ditch hope of getting a mob of people who are ignorant of the FACTS of the case to PRESSURE a court into overturning Davis's sentence. They couldn't do it in court with facts, testimony, and evidence, so they were hoping mob pressure would do the trick. It didn't work, and thank GOODNESS it didn't work, because we can NOT run a justice system by basing decisions on pressure from uninformed mobs.

    who cares what kim k or p-dummy have to say….the way I see it, the guy had plenty of time to clear his name, how many more appeals should he have been given? P Dummy & Kim K should have carted their stupid azz to Georgia and looked at the evidence, better yet… get him the BEST attorney money can buy. Let's not forget about the white KKK man who was put down the same day this Troy got went down. The kkk guy murdered a blk man by dragging him from the back of his truck, which I think is down right evil & disgusting!

  18. 18

    I might add, the KKK guy that was put down was in Texas.
