Michael Moore soft-sells socialism in ‘Where to Invade Next’

He sells socialism yet chooses to live in the U.S. which has made him a wealthy fat hypocrite.


NY Post: Leftist provocateur Michael Moore drops the angrily strident tone of “Fahrenheit 9/11’’ and “Sicko,’’ and attempts to preach beyond the converted with “Where To Invade Next,’’ a feature-length infomercial for socialism in the more playfully funny mode of his classic “Bowling for Columbine’’ (which won the documentary Oscar) and “Roger & Me.’’

While the title sounds like a critique of American militarism, “Where To Invade Next’’ is actually a sort of spinoff of Moore’s only fictional feature, the 1995 comedy “Canadian Bacon,’’ about a US president who declares a cold war on our neighbor to the north to increase his popularity.

In this case, it’s Moore trying to recapture his place in popular culture by staging mock “invasions’’ of various socialist republics, where he feigns astonishment to discover that ordinary citizens are treated so much better than in the home of American exceptionalism.

A chef who prepares served-to-the-table gourmet meals for elementary school students at what we’re told is one of the poorest villages in France reacts in horror (as do the kids) to photos of school lunches in Boston. Sex-education classes in France that stress loving respect are juxtaposed against a clip in which Rick Perry (the only presidential candidate in the film) insists that teaching only “abstinence works, I know from personal experience,’’ when confronted by an interviewer about Texas having the nation’s highest teen-pregnancy rate.

Italy is portrayed as a worker’s paradise of two-hour lunch breaks, eight-week paid vacations and five-month paid maternity leaves (never mind the perpetual political unrest). Portugal has dramatically reduced addiction by decriminalizing drugs. College is tuition-free for all in Slovenia, including American students fleeing massive education loans. And Norway has reduced recidivism with human prisons aimed at rehabilitation — even a mass murderer can only be incarcerated for a maximum of 21 years there.

Germany is portrayed as another worker’s paradise, in which employees by law hold half the seats on corporate boards of directors, and CEOs tell Moore that greed isn’t good for anybody. But at the risk of turning off the larger American audience he’s courting, Moore can’t resist equating the genocide of Nazi Germany with America’s treatment of its black population, from slavery to Ferguson.

The mostly entertaining two-hour film ends with a ringing endorsement of women’s rights and female governmental leadership, from Tunisia (whose Islamic voters enacted the kind of equal-rights amendment to its constitution that failed in the US) to Iceland (which elected the world’s first female president and where female leaders made sure that crooked bankers were sent to jail, unlike in the 2008 US financial crisis).

It’s fair to speculate if Moore’s most optimistic film is a stealth endorsement of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (a full-frontal attack on George W. Bush’s re-election didn’t work out so well in “Fahrenheit 9/11,” even if it was the highest-grossing doc of all time). Moore wasn’t saying at a Q&A following the premiere Thursday night, joking that Meryl Streep should run for office.

“Where To Invade Next’’ will most likely be released in time to qualify for the documentary Oscar, though it doesn’t currently have a distributor. The Hollywood Reporter counted reps from at least five companies at the premiere — and that didn’t include Moore’s longtime champion Harvey Weinstein.


‘Disturbed white males’ are the most dangerous people in the country


DailyMail: The filmmaker behind Bowling for Columbine has responded to calls for comment following the latest U.S. mass shooting. Michael Moore wrote on a Facebook post describing America’s national symbol as the gun, not the bald eagle.

“With due respect to those who are asking me to comment on last night’s tragic mass…I no longer have anything to say about what is now part of normal American life,” Moore wrote.

“Everything I have to say about this, I said it 12 years ago,” he said, referencing his 2002 documentary in which he explored the possible causes of the horrific Columbine High School massacre in 1999 carried out by teens Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

He goes on to say that the U.S. is singularly plagued by these violent attacks in part because of a climate of fear and paranoia and weak gun laws that enable “disturbed white males” to get their hands on deadly weapons – legally.

Elliot Rodger was found to have three .9mm semi-automatic guns and more than 400 rounds of ammunition, all of which was legally purchased and registered.

Moore writes that while other countries have more violent histories than the U.S., more guns per capita and consume the same violent movies and video games as the U.S., but none have anywhere near the rates of mass killings that America does.

“…and yet we don’t seem to want to ask ourselves this simple question: “Why use? What is it about US?” he writes.

Richard Martinez the father of Christopher Martinez who was gunned down by Rodger echoed Moore’s despair. “When will this insanity stop?” he asked through tears while speaking to the media.

“Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA,” Martinez said, raising his voice. “They talk about gun rights. What about Chris’s right to live?”

The bloodshed is just the latest in what is fast becoming a regular occurrence in the United States, and one that is sure to happen again, says Moore. “We won’t pass the necessary laws, but more importantly we won’t consider why this happens here all the time,” he writes.

“When the NRA says, ‘Guns don’t kill people – people kill people,’ they’ve got it half-right. Except I would amend it to this: ‘Guns don’t kill people – Americans kill people.’ Enjoy the rest of your day, and rest assured this will happen again very soon.”

Here’s a few facts to the know-it-all Moore:

Instead of blaming the NRA and lawmakers, how about blaming the shooter and those who cradled him, instead of getting him the help he needed?


The Secret Sandy Hook Secrecy Bill.


If it walks like a duck. Nuff Said.

———————————-  ~ Steve ~ ———————————–

http://lastresistance.com    posted on May 24, 2013 by

Been wondering what has happened with the Sandy Hook case? Want many of the weird questions settled? The legislature of Connecticut has been bypassing normal open procedures to craft a bill behind closed doors that would, if passed, keep basic evidence of the crime forever behind closed doors

From the Hartford Courant, “Bill Drafted In Secret Would Block Release Of Some Newtown Massacre Records”:

Adam Lanza

Adam Lanza

“The staffs of the state’s top prosecutor and the governor’s office have been working in secret with General Assembly leaders on legislation to withhold records related to the police investigation into the Dec. 14 Newtown elementary school massacre — including victims’ photos, tapes of 911 calls, and possibly more. The behind-the-scenes legislative effort came to light Tuesday when The Courant obtained a copy of an email by a top assistant to Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane, Timothy J. Sugrue. Sugrue, an assistant state’s attorney, discussed options considered so far, including blocking release of statements ‘made by a minor.’”

You have got to be kidding.

The bereaved Sandy Hook parents are going through hell, I’m sure, and will be doing so for years to come. But they are no more special than the bereaved parents of children who were murdered in Columbine High SchoolAs I wrote back when Michael Moore said he wanted the pictures released,

“If you use Google image search for words like crime scene columbine or Cleboldand Harris, you will find some pretty gruesome pictures. Why is Sandy Hook being treated so differently?”

This entire investigation has been shrouded in secrecy, as evidenced by repeated protests by local editorials (here and here). All this secrecy has been kept simply by the raw will of the police and whoever is overseeing them. What will happen if this becomes enshrined in law? Will it only be the bodies that are kept from view, or will we never get to see any more pictures of the bullet-ridden cars in the parking lot? Or will we be forbidden from seeing photographs of Adam Lanza’s Honda Civic with all four doors open and black sweatshirts strewn on the pavement around it? What about spent shells and the bullet holes in the interior walls? The official story makes Adam Lanza a lone gunman who managed to shoot 155 bullets in under five minutes and hit multiple targets multiple times.

Other than some professional local Connecticut Journalists, the major media has investigated nothing at all related to Sandy Hook, but rather considered it an opportunity to play Oprah Winfrey and to lobby for gun control. Many (Most? All?) of the Sandy Hook parents whose delicate privacy the Connecticut legislators are so concerned about have been aggressively lobbying in the news and in legislatures using their pain as a license to attack the second amendment. Showing the damage would further their cause, just likeMichael Moore said.

I’ve never in my life heard of the side of law and order wanting to suppress evidence. It is always the defense who wants the pictures concealed because of the fear that the jury will become enflamed with a sense of justice against the perpetrator.

What the Connecticut legislature is trying to do just seems backwards. The fact that they have tried to hide what they are doing makes it seem even more sinister.

An Open Letter To Liberals.

now this is pretty funny.  :D


BY RAT ON APRIL 19, 2013




Dear Liberals,

I wanted to send along my condolences in regards to the rough week you guys have had.

Now that the Boston Marathon bombers have been officially identified as Muslim terrorists, I can only imagine how heartbroken you must be. Hell – I wouldn’t be surprised if Tingles Matthews is on 24-hour suicide watch. Then, you have the morbidly-obese Michael Moore, who immediately speculated that the bombers were “white right-wingers,” now pathetically claiming via Twitter that he was “right.” (Seems as if he missed the part about the killers being radicalized Chechen Muslims.)

Anyway, I can only imagine how embarrassing it must be that once again, one of your self-appointed spokesmen – er, sorry, “spokespersons” – is such a spectacularly sore loser.

Speaking of spectacularly sore losers, your president’s little temper tantrum in the Rose Garden after the Senate handed him his ass on the gun-control bill must have been embarrassing as well. To add insult to injury, it was the Democrat-controlled Senate that did the ass-handing – with five Democrats joining the ranks of the evil Republicans – or as O likes to call them, the “enemies.” I’m sure that the disappointment of being denied the opportunity to blame the bill’s defeat on John Boehner and the House Republicans was excruciating for him.

Take heart though; O’s humiliation, coming after he pulled out all the stops, including using Sandy Hook parents as props – multiple times, will only serve to motivate him to issue yet another slew of executive orders – and Congress will be circumvented again! So, see? All it not lost in your efforts to control the guns of law-abiding citizens. Besides, this is only one loss in the long march to confiscate guns; have a little patience!

I’m sure it must also be rough for you guys to read about the horrific testimony and see the grisly images coming out of the Philadelphia abortionist’s murder trial. Not very good for the cause, is it? Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place; your media refuses to cover the story in its effort to protect abortion at all costs – while it continues to draw an ever-increasing amount of criticism for doing so. I mean, it’s getting so bad that even liberal commentators are pointing out the hypocrisy. Too bad Gosnell didn’t kill all those babies with an AR-15, huh? How awesome would that have been?

Anyway, chins up, dudes – it won’t be this bad forever. Besides, if the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas turns out to have been intentionally caused by a white right-winger – better yet, a white right-wing Christian –everything will be good again on Planet Looney Tunes. Keep your fingers and toes crossed.

Have a great weekend,

A Concerned Conservative

P.S. Almost forgot: So sorry that the deluded nut job Elvis impersonator who sent ricin-laced letters to O and several members of Congress turned out to not only be a Democrat – but a Democrat activist, no less. Man, when it rains, it pours, huh?

Michael Moore wants pics of dead Sandy Hook victims published


He’s on a rant again. I’ve excerpted from his lengthy tirade, read the whole thing here.

America, You Must Not Look Away (How to Finish Off the NRA)

HuffPo: And that is why you never see a picture any more of the kind of death and destruction that might make you get up off your couch and run out of the house screaming bloody murder at those responsible for these atrocities.

That is why now, after the children’s massacre in Newtown, the absolute last thing the National Rifle Association wants out there in the public domain is ANY images of what happened that tragic day.

But I have a prediction. I believe someone in Newtown, Connecticut – a grieving parent, an upset law enforcement officer, a citizen who has seen enough of this carnage in our country – somebody, someday soon, is going to leak the crime scene photos of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. And when the American people see what bullets from an assault rifle fired at close range do to a little child’s body, that’s the day the jig will be up for the NRA. It will be the day the debate on gun control will come to an end. There will be nothing left to argue over. It will just be over. And every sane American will demand action.

Of course, there will be a sanctimonious hue and cry from the pundits who will decry the publication of these gruesome pictures. Those who do publish or post them will be called “shameful” and “disgraceful” and “sick.” How could a media outlet be so insensitive to the families of the dead children! Someone will then start a boycott of the magazine or website that publishes them.

But this will be a false outrage. Because the real truth is this: We do not want to be confronted with what the actual results of a violent society looks like. Of what a society that starts illegal wars, that executes criminals (or supposed criminals), that strikes or beats one of its women every 15 seconds, and shoots 30 of its own citizens every single day looks like. Oh, no, please – DO NOT MAKE US LOOK AT THAT!

Because if we were to seriously look at the 20 slaughtered children – I mean really look at them, with their bodies blown apart, many of them so unrecognizable the only way their parents could identify them was by the clothes they were wearing – what would be our excuse not to act? Now. Right now. This very instant! How on earth could anyone not spring into action the very next moment after seeing the bullet-riddled bodies of these little boys and girls?

Most of us continue to say we “support the Second Amendment” as if it were written by God (or we’re just afraid of being seen as anti-American). But this amendment was written by the same white men who thought a Negro was only 3/5 human. We’ve done nothing to revise or repeal this – and that makes us responsible, and that is why we must look at the pictures of the 20 dead children laying with what’s left of their bodies on the classroom floor in Newtown, Connecticut.

And while you’re looking at the heinous photographs, try saying those words out loud: “I support the Second Amendment!” Something, I’m guessing, won’t feel right.

Pack your bags, NRA – you’re about to be shown the door. Because we refuse to let another child die in this manner. Got it? I hope so.

All you can do now is hope no one releases those photos.


This man makes me sick. Just think of the deaths that could have been prevented had a school official been armed.


Michael Moore can get bent!


Michael Moore resolves to stop saying ‘I support the troops’ in 2013

Fox News: Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore took to his Huffington Post blog to  announce 10 of his 2013 New Year’s resolutions.

The fourth and fifth resolutions in particular, in which he criticizes American citizens for joining the armed forces, have sparked particular  controversy. The fourth reads:

4. Stop saying, “I support the troops.” I don’t. I used to. I understand why  so many enlisted after 9/11. Sadly, many of them were then trapped and sent off  to invade Iraq. I felt for all of them. I understood those who joined because of  a lousy economy. But at some point all individuals must answer for their  actions, and now that we know our military leaders do things that have nothing  to do with defending our lives, why would anyone sign up for this rogue organization?

Moore then followed with resolution No. 5:

5. Apologize for No. 4. I have enormous respect for anyone who would offer to  sacrifice their life to defend my right to live. Is there any greater gift one  can give another? It’s not the troops’ fault they’re sent to invade other countries for dubious reasons and outright lies. It’s OUR responsibility to  prevent this, to elect representatives who believe in peace, and to only put our  troops in harm’s way when it’s absolutely necessary. My uncle was killed in  World War II. Today would have been his 90th birthday. My dad still misses him.  Our family has served this country in the military since the Revolutionary War.  None of them watch Fox News.

Reactions ranged from anger to agreement to polite dismissal.

James E. Koutz, the National Commander of The American Legion, the nation’s  largest veteran’s organization, shrugged off Moore’s sentiments, noting that  everyone has a right to their opinions thanks to those who have fought for those  rights. “What I can say is that The American Legion fully supports all the men and  women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, always has and always will,” Koutz told  FOX411.“We don’t need to make a New Year’s resolution for that.”

In the comments following the blog post, a Huffington Post Community  Moderator defended Moore’s article:

“Michael is a controversial guy and that means he’s doing things right,” the  moderator wrote.

Other readers’ comments were mixed.

“Sometimes he is right and sometimes he isn’t. Controversy doesn’t however  mean right. Some things in society really shouldn’t be controversial,” one  wrote. Another added: “How about you lose some weight, so that the now  socialized medical system in the country, that you fought so hard for, doesn’t  have to spend millions trying to keep an obese lazy millionaire healthy.”

Many others on Huffington Post supported Moore’s stance.

“Love the soldiers, hate the wars is how I’ve always felt. I never did hate  the soldiers coming back from Vietnam like some people did,” one wrote. “But I  do hate these useless wars.”

But Moore’s article sparked widespread outrage in social media:

“Michael Moore’s Resolution: “Stop saying, “I support the troops.” I don’t.” -This is about as low as pitiful as someone can be. #disgusting, one tweeted.

“Michael Moore is done feeling sorry for the poor saps who enlisted in the  Armed Forces of the United States. He has withdrawn his support.  Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah. You couldn’t possibly make this stuff up,”  another wrote.

Poor, misguided fatty Michael Moore is. He really believes soldiers sign up because of “the lousy economy”? He has no idea of the real reason soldiers sign up to serve.

If he truly believes “that at some point all individuals must answer for their  actions”, why doesn’t he take his rage out on the one individual in charge of the troops, President Obama? That, of course, is a rhetorical question. Afterall, Obama is such a “smooth guy“…

6-Year-Old Suspended For Saying, “Pow”

Michael Moore recently said that the only reason white people are buying a bunch of guns in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting is that they’re fearful. Afraid of black people specifically. He said, “Calm down, white people, and put away your guns.” So if we’re all buying guns and ammo out of fear of the black man, what emotion would cause this idiocy: a 6-year-old boy was suspended from school for making his hand in the shape of a gun and pretend shooting it, saying, “Pow,” as it was pointed at a fellow student. Were school officials actually scared that a bullet was going to come out of the child’s index finger and kill his classmate? So, it’s not fear that’s driving this; it’s pure stupidity.

Renee Garraway, the Assistant Principal in this Montgomery County, Maryland school, sent a letter home with the 6-year-old. Her letter, addressing the child’s parents, stated in part that “your son … was involved in a serious incident. [He] threatened to shoot a student. He was spoken to earlier today about a similar incident.” He threatened to shoot a student? Are they kidding? He was probably playing a version of Cops and Robbers. He’s a little boy. At one time, such behavior was considered normal for little boys. Nowadays with the abject paranoia of the left, this child’s configuring his fingers in the shape of a gun is worthy of suspension

And because of the school’s “no tolerance” policy and ridiculous overreaction, the parents have had to retain an attorney, Robin Ficker. Ficker pointed out that “five years from now when someone at Montgomery County looks at [the child’s] permanent record, they’re going to see that he threatened to shoot another student.”

This is similar to another recent incident where a 3-year-old deaf student was told he had to change his sign language name because the hand gestures for the name “Hunter” resembled guns, much like the 6-year-old’s “gun” above being used to shoot a fellow student.

Government schools are proving themselves to be dangerous, mentally, emotionally and physically. They’re also run by imbeciles who think they’re doing society a favor by removing the kids with “behavior problems” such as the child who was playing Cops and Robbers. Shutting down these government schools would do society a much greater favor.
