More libtard butthurt: Michael Moore calls for protesters to ‘disrupt’ Trump’s inauguration

Moore should find a cure for his disorder. Otherwise it’s going to be a long four years for him.

From Fox News: Michael Moore — who predicted Donald Trump would win the presidency months before his surprise victory — is now encouraging people to protest the President-elect’s upcoming inauguration.

“Disrupt the Inauguration. The Majority have spoken – by nearly 2.7 million votes &counting! Silence is not an option,” Moore tweeted Wednesday.

The liberal filmmaker shared a link to the website for DisruptJ20, a campaign for “a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017.”

The website states, “We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies. If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over. It must be made clear to the whole world that the vast majority of people in the United States do not support his presidency or consent to his rule.

butthurt

DisruptJ20 is planning D.C.-based protests on the day of Trump’s inauguration, but also asks people to protest on “the streets wherever you are.”

The social justice organization also calls for worldwide action. “If you are living outside the US, you can take action at US embassies, borders, or other symbols of neocolonial power. Our allegiance is not to ‘making America great again,’ but to all of humanity and the planet. #DisruptJ20.”

Hollywood Studios, Agencies in a Daze After Trump Win: ‘Many of Us Will Be Scared and Threatened’

leocryingdeparted

From Hollywood Reporter: Early Wednesday morning, United Talent Agency CEO Jeremy Zimmer dispatched a memo to the company’s staff trying to alleviate anxiety and anger in the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s surprise loss to Donald Trump in the presidential election.

Many of us will be scared and threatened and we can give comfort. Some of us will be happy because our voice was heard. Either way, it’s a challenging moment so let’s be extra sensitive and caring with others,” Zimmer wrote to the agency’s employees.

Across Hollywood, agents, studio executives, producers and thousands of rank-and-file employees showed up at work Wednesday in a daze. A majority of Hollywood’s power brokers and up-and-comers supported Clinton. Her roster of donors reads like a who’s who of Hollywood, including Universal’s Ron Meyer, Jeff Shell and Donna Langley, Warner Bros.’ Kevin Tsujihara, Sue Kroll and Toby Emmerich, Paramount’s Brad Grey, Sony’s Michael Lynton, 20th Century Fox’s Stacey Snider and Disney’s Alan Horn. Harvey Weinstein, Legendary’s Thomas Tull, CAA’s Bryan Lourd and ICM’s Chris Silbermann also were donors, and many top figures, including Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes and stars including Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney, hosted events for Clinton. (Entry to an August fundraiser hosted at Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s house was $100,000 per couple.)

There was also super PAC money organized by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Univision’s Haim Saban on top of their personal contributions. All told, the Center for Responsive Politics reports Clinton garnered $22 million in contributions from the entertainment industry, compared to a mere $290,000 for Trump.

Now Clinton’s stunning defeat has left Hollywood in shock — and questioning whether it is out of touch with a wide swath of the country by assuming Clinton would win.

gee-ya-think

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, who runs management and production company Grandview-Automatik, grouped his staff together for a company talk. “It was a heart-to-heart, and we talked through a lot of things,” says Kavanaugh-Jones, whose recent producer credits include the new interracial romance drama Loving. “One point that was brought up was that Hollywood can be a bit sheltered from the rest of the country, so it’s important that we are all open to hearing other people’s points of view and try to reach out across the aisle and hopefully they’ll reach back.”

baby laughing

Like UTA’s Zimmer, WME Global head Graham Taylor also sent an email attempting to rally the agency’s staff around 1 a.m. Wednesday after the news networks had called the election for Trump.

“While I had hoped for a different outcome for a myriad of reasons, I do strongly believe tomorrow we all have a united challenge to come together as a company,” Taylor wrote. “We have colleagues and clients that are both happy and upset. We have a divided country, a disrupted globe, and the level of fear and cynicism is unprecedented both in our business and the world at large.”

The major film and television studios were similarly taking stock, but top executives were loath to speak out publicly, since their companies will now have to work with a Trump administration after Democratic President Barack Obama’s eight-year administration comes to an end in January. At MGM’s offices, for instance, there was no formal note from management, but executives “have been consoling each other,” with some employees shedding tears, says one insider.

The mood inside another studio’s animation department was akin to an Irish wake, according to an insider, with employees dressed in black, gathered in a communal kitchen nursing a collective hangover.

Another top studio executive tells THR he is “completely devastated” by Clinton’s loss. Still another notes the paucity of phone calls coming in Wednesday morning as the industry focused on Clinton’s concession speech, followed by President Obama’s live address. “Safe to say it’s been an unusually quiet morning,” says the exec.

“It feels weird to conduct business as usual,” says a producer elsewhere. “How can we focus on make-believe stories when the real world seems to need so much help?”

The mood was decidedly “quiet and morose” inside UTA, a major talent brokerage that boasts Will Ferrell, Channing Tatum, and Joel and Ethan Coen among its clients. Stunned employees sat quietly in rows of desks Wednesday morning, reading Zimmer’s missive urging staff to contact clients and assuage their fears.

The question on everyone lips this morning was “How?” How could the vast polling and political punditry complex have been so far off — and how did no one inside Hollywood, save for Michael Moore, see this historic upset coming?

And yet one established Hollywood agent has a different take, even though he voted for Clinton. “This is a town that rewards disgusting behavior, so people being upset is hypocritical,” says the agency partner. “What the cool kids are upset about is that someone they don’t like and someone who is not part of the cool kids, won. Time to grow up and move on.

Trump’s election will be the biggest F-you in history

If we go by most of the MSM/corporate polls, Hillary Clinton will win on November 8.

But there are dissenting voices. Among them is Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, who’s still predicting a 98% chance of not just a Trump win, but a landslide. Interestingly, the dissenters also include a flaming leftist — docu-maker Michael Moore.

Moore is loathsome, but I don’t think anyone has captured or articulated the reasons why so many Americans resonate to Trump’s anti-globalism as well as Moore.

Below is an excerpt from a recent speech Moore delivered, followed by my transcription:

“I know a lot of people in Michigan that are planning to vote for Trump…. They don’t necessarily like him that much and they don’t necessarily agree with him. They’re not racists and rednecks certainly; they’re actually pretty decent people. And so I wanted to, after talking to a number of them, I wanted to write this.

Donald Trump came to the Detroit Economic Club and stood there in front of the Ford Motor executives and said, ‘If you close these factories you’re planning to do in Detroit and build them in Mexico, [when I’m President] I’m going to put a 35% tariff on those cars when you send them back and nobody’s gonna buy them.’

It was an amazing thing to see. No politician, Republican or Democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania, in Wisconsin, the Brexit states. You live here in Ohio, you know what I’m talking about.

Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting. That’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff — what used to be part of what was called the middle class — loves Trump. He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for, the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them. And on November 8th, Election Day, although they lost their jobs, although they’ve been foreclosed on by the bank, next came the divorce, and now the wife and kids are gone, the car’s been repo’ed, they haven’t had a real vacation in years, they’re stuck with the shitty Obamacare plan when you can’t even get a fucking [inaudible]. They’ve essentially lost everything they had, except one thing. The one thing that doesn’t cost them a cent and is guaranteed to them by the American Constitution — the right to vote.

They might be penniless, they might be homeless, they might be fucked over and fucked up. It doesn’t matter because it’s equalized on that day. A millionaire has the same number of votes as the person without a job — one. And there’s more of the former middle class than there are in the millionaire class.

So on November 8th, the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain and take that lever or felt pen or touchscreen and put a big fucking X in the box by the name of the man who is threatening to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J. Trump.

They see that the elites who ruined their lives hate Trump. Corporate America hates Trump. Wall Street hates Trump. The career politicians hate Trump. The media hates Trump, after they loved him and created him and now hate him. Thank you, media.

The enemy of my enemy is who I’m voting for on November 8. Yes, on November 8, you, Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, Billy Bob Blow — all the Blows get to blow up the whole goddamn system because it’s your right. Trump’s election is going to be the biggest fuck-you ever recorded in human history, and it will feel good.”

Perversely, after articulately so beautifully the profound alienation of so many Americans and why Trump speaks for them, Michael Moore then proceeded to make a whole-hog defense and endorsement of Hillary Clinton.

Here’s a screenshot from a video showing “Jabba the Hut” Michael Moore making the speech you heard and read above.

What if Trump loses?

Below are excerpts from a powerful essay, “The Elite ‘Have No Idea’ — Society is Near the Breaking Point,” written by a guy who calls himself Chindit13 for ZeroHedge:

“What I find most surprising today is that the insiders and the elite have no idea what is percolating just beneath the surface.  Okay, maybe their arrogance actually produces its own fog, so it should not come as a surprise that they are blinded. They do not look at the calendar, which, if one really looks, says ‘1788’ on it.  Something is close.  Very close.  Society is near the breaking point.

My own experience is that Hillary’s so-called Deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are more informed, more self-reliant, and among other things, better armed.  Regarding their arms, they are incredibly responsible, and not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed.  The Deplorables have the longest fuse.  It is, however, a fuse. […]

The Deplorables, however, are not possessed of infinite patience. Like a capacitor, there is a charge building, and at some point it will be released into the circuitry of society.

The media and other insiders believe themselves to be immune.  That thought no doubt results from being immersed inside a cocoon where dissonant voices are not allowed.  When the levee breaks, or the capacitor releases its charge, they are going to be gob smacked.

Precious few of them are anywhere near as immune as they believe themselves to be.  Additionally, what they might think, or hope, is their support, their security, their safe space, doesn’t really exist.

Most of society’s guardians, whether they are law enforcement or military, are card-carrying members of the Deplorables.

France was similarly constructed in the late 1780s.  The elite were isolated only in thought, not in reality.  Their protection was of a Potemkin Village nature: not actually there, but merely a facade that gave them false comfort.

They paid dearly for their arrogance and ignorance.

History may not repeat, but it does rhyme.  The calendar really does seem to say 1788, so 1789—and 1792–are not as far off as some would like to believe.

This is not a call to arms, but it is a call to reality.  Ignore it at your own peril.

Some may see these words as a threat.  They are not.  They are, however, a warning, and a warning from someone who is a student of history.

Every society eventually reaches a breaking point.  Ours is nearly there.  Some of those who might feel threatened, the so-called elite and insiders, think that they can buy protection as easily as they can buy a Gulfstream.  How naïve!  Who are the private security contractors?  Who are the various SOGs?  Like law enforcement and the rest of the military, they are the Deplorables.  The Deplorables will take your money, but you will not take their lives.  Better said, they won’t give up their lives for you or your family.  The security you believe you have purchased is an illusion.  Make that delusion.  Best to get that out front here and now.

Some might think this is all Trump’s fault.  Again, that shows a degree of ignorance and naïveté which characterizes the elite.  Trump is a symptom, not a cause.  He might even be a salve, as the changes he could bring might defuse some of the current anger.

On the other hand, Hillary is a lit match in a room of dynamite.  She, like many of the self-important, thinks her very existence is a favor to the rest of us.  She epitomizes the absolute worst of what America has become.  Above the law, wealthy not through accomplishment, but through influence peddling only, and a bull in a china shop in terms of her effect on both the country and the world—and I apologize to bulls for that analogy.  The world is more unstable because of her.

America is less safe because of her.  Russia and the US—the two largest nuclear powers—are more at odds because of her.  With her in power, we will reach the breaking point at home and internationally, perhaps leading to ‘accidental’ nuclear war, as the heightened rhetoric impacts clear thinking.  Society is more stratified because of her.  Race relations have deteriorated because of her (and Obama).

There are few current ills in society and in geopolitics that cannot be laid at her feet, at least to some extent.  The Great Deceiver to many, who exhibits an astonishing aversion to truth telling, is enough to make even an agnostic wonder if the anti-Christ hasn’t finally arrived for its three and a half years of rule.

A recently hacked email of John Podesta finds him saying ‘she (Hillary) has begun to hate everyday Americans’.  No doubt the same feelings were voiced by [Romania dictator] Nicolas Ceaucescu.  It turned out the feeling was mutual. […]

Elect Hillary, and continue with business as usual, and it is likely this warning will become an epitaph for the America we know.  Society may collapse regardless, because the rot is already very great, but she will hasten the day of reckoning. […]”

Michael Moore calls all Donald Trump supporters ‘legal terrorists’

response to Michael Moore

From Daily Mail: Donald Trump supporters are furious at Michael Moore for branding them ‘legal terrorists’.

The filmmaker used the term in an interview with Rolling Stone published Friday, saying that Trump would ‘blow up the system’ and his voters would ‘participate in the detonation’.

Moore also compared Trump to a pedophile, saying voters had to protect America from the GOP nominee the way children should be protected from molesters.

His movie ‘Michael Moore In Trumpland’, which Moore has called his October surprise, came out earlier this week after just 11 days of development.

Moore, once a fervent Bernie Sanders supporter who has now endorsed Hillary Clinton, told the LA Times he hoped the film would convince ‘the depressed Hillary voter’ to cast a ballot on November 8.

‘Michael Moore In Trumpland’ is based on a one-man show that Moore performed earlier this month in Wilmington, Ohio. The show revolves mostly around Moore’s support of Clinton – but he denied having written it in the hopes of converting devoted Trump supporters.

‘I did not want the racists or the crazies in there or we would have never gotten the show done,’ he told Rolling Stone. Instead, Moore said, he wanted to strike a chord with voters who typically support Democrats but where thinking of casting their ballot for Trump.

‘I want them to think about the damage they could do by being a legal terrorist on November 8th,’ Moore said. Rolling Stone asked if the words ‘legal terrorist referred to any Trump voter or to anyone in particular. Moore replied: ‘Any.’

‘Legally, you have a right to vote on November 8th. You can go in there and even though you’re not necessarily in favor of Trump and you don’t like him that much and you know he’s a little crazy, you also know he’s going to blow up the system,’ Moore added.

‘The system that took your job and house away from you. You get to get back at the system now and blow it up and this is the only day you can do it legally.  He’s told everybody that’s what he’s going to do. He’s the outsider who is going to ride into town and blow up the old way.’

‘So you, as a voter, get to participate in the detonation. He’s going to get a lot of votes from people who actually just want to sit back and watch the thing blow up.

What's really about to blow up...

What’s really about to blow up…

Moore later called the GOP nominee a ‘sociopath’ and said Trump had a mental illness – to the point where Moore didn’t feel comfortable ‘picking on’ Trump anymore and wanted him to get help. 

‘At the same time, you have to protect the population from him like you do with a pedophile,’ Moore said. ‘A pedophile doesn’t need to be in prison; they’re sick. They have to be separated from us so they don’t hurt children. But you have to treat it that way.’

Furious Trump voters blasted Moore’s comments on Twitter. One called Moore a ‘pathetic thing’, another accused him of being ‘terrified’, and a third tweeted a story about Moore with the words ‘IDIOT ALERT’.

User Merle Patterson wondered: ‘So, Americans have #rightofchoice, unless it’s #Trump?’ Another Twitter user, Dan Foster, wrote: ‘like Michael Moore would know anything about patriotism or reality.’ Real estate broker Greg Bennett compared Moore to a ‘butt itch’, adding: ‘it’s there but you can’t scratch it, just annoying.’

Brunell Donald-Kyei, a Trump supporter and the vice-chair of the national diversity coalition for Trump, blasted Moore’s comments on Fox News, accusing ‘anyone that votes for Hillary Clinton’ of ‘aiding and abetting a felon’.

5 reasons why Democrat docu-maker Michael Moore thinks Trump will win

While the Left’s willing accomplices in the media pour on their sickening adulation of Hillary in their selective reporting of the Democratic National Convention, one Democrat is actually speaking the truth.

In a very long, tediously verbose email to his followers whom he addresses as “friends,” which you can read for yourself here, Hollyweirdo film maker Michael Moore mournfully predicts that Donald Trump will defeat Hillary Clinton this November.

By the way, did Moore take in even one Muslim refugee?

By the way, did Moore take in even one Muslim refugee?

Moore writes:

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Notwithstanding his forlorn wish that he could “be proven wrong,” and despite his belief that “the American people clearly want” the Obama legacy to be continued, which the “whip-smart” Hillary Clinton who “cares about kids” will, Moore tells his followers that they must “stop living in denial and face the truth which you know deep down is very, very real.”

According to Michael Moore, these are the 5 reasons Trump is going to win:

1. Trump will win the rustbelt states of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

These are four traditionally “blue” states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes which can no longer be relied on to vote Democrat because “the Clintons’ support of NAFTA helped to destroy the industrial states of the Upper Midwest, and Trump will “hammer” Hillary on this “and her support of TPP and other trade policies that have royally screwed the people of these four states.” Moore predicts that “What happened in the UK with Brexit is going to happen here” because of the plight and anger of the former industrial workers of America’s rustbelt:

“From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England – broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we use to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats who still try to talk a good line but are really just looking forward to rub one out with a lobbyist from Goldman Sachs who’ll write them nice big check before leaving the room.”

Trump understands and speaks to their anger. Moore writes:

“When Trump stood in the shadow of a Ford Motor factory during the Michigan primary, he threatened the corporation that if they did indeed go ahead with their planned closure of that factory and move it to Mexico, he would slap a 35% tariff on any Mexican-built cars shipped back to the United States. It was sweet, sweet music to the ears of the working class of Michigan, and when he tossed in his threat to Apple that he would force them to stop making their iPhones in China and build them here in America, well, hearts swooned and Trump walked away with a big victory that should have gone to the governor next-door, John Kasich.”

Some signs that Trump will win those 4 rustbelt states are:

  • All four states have elected Republican governors since 2010 (only Pennsylvania recently elected a Democrat).
  • In the Michigan primary in March, more Michiganders came out to vote for the Republicans (1.32 million) that the Democrats (1.19 million).
  • Trump is ahead of Hillary in the latest polls in Pennsylvania and tied with her in Ohio.
  • In 2012, Mitt Romney lost by 64 electoral votes. The electoral votes cast by Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are precisely 64, which means “All Trump needs to do to win is to carry, as he’s expected to do, the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states. He doesn’t need Florida. He doesn’t need Colorado or Virginia. Just Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. And that will put him over the top. This is how it will happen in November.”

2. The Angry White Man

While he has only contempt for America’s angry white men who he says are furious that the “male-dominated, 240-year run of the USA is coming to an end” and “a woman is about to take over,” Moore nevertheless sees the 2016 presidential election as the “last stand” of the “Endangered White Male” who will turn out in droves to vote for Trump.

3. Hillary Clinton

Asking his followers, “Can we speak honestly, just among ourselves?,” Moore says outright that “Our biggest problem here isn’t Trump – it’s Hillary.” Here are the dimensions of what Moore calls “The Hillary Problem”:

  • Hillary Clinton is a hawk, who “will find a way to get us in some kind of military action.”
  • Hillary Clinton is hugely unpopular — nearly 70% of all voters think she is untrustworthy and dishonest.
  • Hillary Clinton is an opportunist — she doesn’t really believe “in anything other than what can get you elected. That’s why she fights against gays getting married one moment, and the next she’s officiating a gay marriage.”
  • Young women, in particular, don’t like Hillary and “are among her biggest detractors…. [N]ot a day goes by that a millennial doesn’t tell me they aren’t voting for her.
  • No enthusiasm of Hillary means low voter turnout: “No Democrat, and certainly no independent, is waking up on November 8th excited to run out and vote for Hillary the way they did the day Obama became president or when Bernie was on the primary ballot. The enthusiasm just isn’t there. And because this election is going to come down to just one thing — who drags the most people out of the house and gets them to the polls — Trump right now is in the catbird seat.”

4. The Depressed Sanders Vote

While Moore maintains that Bernie Sanders’ supporters will vote for Hillary, he warns that “The fire alarm that should be going off is that while the average Bernie backer will drag him/herself to the polls that day to somewhat reluctantly vote for Hillary, it will be what’s called a ‘depressed vote’ – meaning the voter doesn’t bring five people to vote with her. He doesn’t volunteer 10 hours in the month leading up to the election.” That’s because Bernie supporters, being young, “have zero tolerance for phonies and BS.” And although “They’re not going to vote for Trump; some will vote third party, but many will just stay home.” And Hillary picking Tim Kaine — “a moderate, bland-o, middle of the road old white guy” — as her running mate sent precisely the wrong message to the Bernie millennials.

5. the angry, DEFIANT american

Moore calls his 5th reason why Trump will win “the Jesse Ventura Effect”. By that he means what happened “back in the ‘90s when the people of Minnesota elected a professional wrestler as their governor” simply because they could — a gesture of defiance against the establishment, “Minnesotans’ version of a good practical joke on a sick political system.”

Moore predicts “This is going to happen again with Trump” when the voter draws “the curtain and are all alone in the voting booth” — “one of the few places left in society where there are no security cameras, no listening devices, no spouses, no kids, no boss, no cops … and no one can make you do anything.” And because of “the anger that so many have toward a broken political system, millions are going to vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can. Just because it will upset the apple cart and make mommy and daddy mad.”

In other words, like so many other political analysts, Moore correctly sees the American people as sick of the prevailing system, and they want to “shake things up,” which “President Trump would indeed do just that, and a good chunk of the electorate would like to sit in the bleachers and watch that reality show.”
