The comparisons between the Third Reich and the modern American radical left are almost too easy to make in this day and age, yet that hasn’t stopped Michael Moore from once again putting his fascist foot into his mouth one again.
Moore, who is famous for his boisterous bellyaching and egregiously biased “documentary” films, has long been a stooge of the American democrats. His subject matter reads much like the left’s progressive playbook: Gun control, Islamophobia, capitalism, and xenophobia. In other words: He’s the poster child for the U.S. liberalism that has turned our nation on its head.
What’s scarier still, however, is that Moore is somehow still relevant in this day and age. His bombastic style and hardline partisan divisiveness truly have no place in our modern American society where the conservative mindset is making an enormous comeback. The world is becoming smaller day by day, thanks to the connectivity of the internet, and the United States making the hard right turn that it has is only indicative of the nation protecting its individuality. Moore is through and through a globalist, who yearns for the day in which George Soros would be declared king and communism reigns supreme.
As if his catalogue of work weren’t enough evidence to cement this point, Moore has thrown his grungy hat back into the political ring on the even of Donald Trump’s first State of The Union address, in order to propose a “cleansing” of “white privilege” from America.
“Moore was giving an address at the ‘People’s State of the Union’ event in Manhattan, which was derided by its critics as having nothing to do with ‘the people’ and everything to do with mega-rich celebrities lecturing Americans about how to think and vote.
“Asserting that the removal of Donald Trump and Mike Pence from office, ‘Still won’t be enough,’ Moore said, ‘We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place.’
“’He did not just fall out of the sky and land in Queens,’ Moore continued.’ He is a result….of us never correcting the three original sins of America – a nation founded on genocide, built on the backs of slaves and maintained through the subjugation of women to second class citizenship and economic disempowerment.’
“’As we seek to rid ourselves of Trump, we must also cleanse our American soul of its white male privilege, its voracious greed,’ he added.”
If we didn’t know better, we’d be inclined to believe that Moore is advocating for a governmental overhaul that would make it impossible for populist politicians and conservatives to ever find themselves elected again.
Then again, Michael Moore has made a living on the absurdity of the hard left, and in our modern American experience, rife with the violence and vitriol of Antifa and the like, there is little room for rational thought in liberal circles.
More likely than not, Moore is simply ratcheting up his own rhetoric in order to stay relevant in this entertainment rich media circus that he has injected himself into.
