Muslim American Society: Congressional Black Caucus Cheer Big-Screen Bush-Bashing in 'Fahrenheit 9/11'

Muslim American Society: "Filmmaker Michael Moore and several black lawmakers celebrated the release of his scathing documentary 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' the film lambasting President George W. Bush opens today in theatres across the United States.

On the steps of a legislative office building, Moore and several members of the Congressional Black Caucus praised the film for what they said is its uncompromising examination of corruption and ineptitude in the Bush White House.

The media event with African American lawmakers was particularly appropriate, Moore said, because the film's opening scene shows members of the 39-member congressional Black Caucus on the floor of the House of Representatives expressing outrage over the bitterly-fought 2000 Florida presidential vote, which culminated in the election of Bush as president.

'It was one of the most disgraceful moments in our great democracy,' Moore said at the press conference. "
