Dale Earnhardt Jr wants blacklisted now? Say it ain't so!
Fox News | June 27, 2004 | Fox News

Posted on 06/27/2004 1:29:39 PM PDT by freegle

Did you just hear them say that on Fox? that Dale Earnhardt Jr. says that, politics aside, everyone should see Farenheit 911?

What's up with that? Frankly, I expect better from Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Fox. I'm shocked, annoyed and irritated. They better take that one back. They don't know who they're messing with. We need to find out what's going on here. I am definitely pissed.

Instant karma, if this is what he said. I'll no longer wish for his win.

No one has ever accused Dale Jr. of being a rocket scientist.

Like it or not, America is a free country. If Dale Jr. thinks everyone should see Michael Moore's crap, so be it. If he agrees with a hatriot like Moore it is his perrogative to do so. He must however face the consequences of making such a statement. Many people do not agree with him.

Bad move no matter how you look at it.

The Marine thread is developing that it might be a pakistani who works with the Marines that was taken.

How Dare the Kerry Campaign exploit not only Dale Jr. but the memory of his father by asking him to speak for Kerry to NASCAR Dads.

I for one am glad I have NEVER been on the Earnhardt bandwagon...whether it was Sr. or Jr., I am a Ford man and a Dale Jarrett/Mark Martin fan. They both will remain my drivers until they retire. I just never have been a fan of this family no matter how much was accomplished.

Sr.'s death was sad and horrible but it didn't mean I had to become a fan of his kids. Hell no...I knew better. He is a punk.

I'm a Ford man myself, having 2 Expeditions. The black one was formerly Bandit's (Burt Reynolds).

I'm just saying that a trairotous attack shouldn't go unanswered. I can't just ignore this. People need to know the truth about Earnhardt Jr.

Verbatim from Chris Myers (Fox Sports announcer) on today's race at Pomona pre-race program..

"You think you know Dale Earnhardt Jr.? He advised his crew to go see the Michael Moore movie Farenheit 911. He said hey, it'll be a good bonding experience no matter what your political belief. It's a good thing as an American to go see... and it just shows you that Dale Earnhardt Jr. can reach far beyond the steering wheel."

Dale Jr. is also a big fan of gangsta rap and one of his best friend is none other than Snoop Dog, as I recall. Dale Sr. must be spinning in his grave. There's no doubting Junior's talent as a driver, but if you're looking for role models in NASCAR, you can do better than #8...

the second part (about the war) is very touching, I have to admit it. If you didn't see it, don't bother commenting. It's hard not to cry when you see the mom talking about her son. .

Lloyd Ruby is my racing idol. He and Roscoe Turner were the most underrated racers in US history.

Sounds like the Senator Kerry position. So we can't comment on the movie and you can? Did you actually pay to see this trashing of the Bush administration?

i'm sure the parents of the service people killed at Khobar Towers and on the USS Cole were crying also. Tell us, were they in this movie? any movie?

Jr you hear Jr. say this himself .. or was someone reporting what he said

These days with the media and the way they take things out of context .. There is a difference

He isn't a rebel at all, he is best described as the pissed-off feminist who follows you through a revolving door.

Roscoe Turner supported and was a big part of the Indy Raceway after he left our little town, Corinth, Mississippi. Turner won just as many times as Jimmy Doolittle in Air races. Indy and Turner were tightly connected. Turner lived the rest of his life out at Indianapolis. I was lucky to have known his family.

I paid to see the movie. It was a matinée so it was only $4.75, but I paid.

"So we can't comment on the movie and you can? "
you can comment, but unless you saw it you have no idea. You'll be repeating what others said, or what you think is in it.

so the compariosn of the grief of a soldiers parents killed while Bush is president is not a fair comparison to similar parents whose lost their children under Clinton.

I think I understand everything I need to know about you.

I'm not trying to make excuses for him .. but I've heard this film is a joke
