Michael Moore Film Fest Draws Competition
Advertisements [?]

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. - A film festival being organized by left-wing director Michael Moore has some right-wing competition.

A local activist and a conservative group from Texas said Wednesday they were putting together an alternative to the Traverse City Film Festival, which Moore and residents of this Lake Michigan community are organizing.

"People are fed up and tired with the extreme left-wing radical fringe America haters, family haters, Christian haters," said Genie Aldrich, a resident of nearby Suttons Bay and founder of the Traverse Bay Freedom Film Festival. She tried unsuccessfully last month to dissuade the city commission from letting Moore's group show films in a municipal waterfront park.

"I like it when Republicans take ideas of mine," said Moore, a Flint, Mich. native who has residences in neighboring Antrim County and New York City. "I have a few more where those came from, if they'd like to sit down and talk."

Wow, Mr. Aldrich, you've figured us out. :eyes:
