Michael Moore: We will replace “evil” capitalism with some other system we haven’t thought of yet
The Right Scoop ^ | Oct. 31, 2011 | Dan Cleary

No doubt they’ll come up with something really cool. Ronald Kessler’s Newsmax article today provides us with a hint:

The tea party movement wants to achieve change through the political system. But Moore said Occupy Wall Street has different goals.

“We’re no longer settling for we live in a democracy because we voted for a politician,” he said.

The fact that police have now arrested close to 1,000 protesters underscores that they are willing to use violence and civil disobedience to achieve their ends. Ironically, they vilify millionaires and billionaires, yet their target includes left-wing heroes like President Barack Obama, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, George Soros, and Moore himself.

Nor do the protesters have much grasp of the world. One woman told a Fox News reporter that socialism in North Korea — where hundreds of thousands have died of starvation — is far preferable to capitalism in South Korea.

Here's one "somebody" came up with in Munich on February 24th 1920. I'm Guessing Mikey would sign on without a second thought.

The following are some of the planks of the National socialist (Nazi) Party of Germany, adopted in Munich on February 24, 1920:

We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living.

The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all.

Therefore, we demand:

an end to the power of the financial interests .

We demand profit sharing in big business.

We demand a broad extension of care for the aged.

We demand. . . the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state, and municipal governments.

In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our system of public education. . . .

We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents. . . .

The government must undertake the improvement of public health — by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor — by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth.

We combat the . . . materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of " The Common Good Before the Individual Good ."

I think the fleabaggers should occupy Moore's $7 million cabin on Torch Lake over the winter. Michigan taxpayers have paid for at least some of it in the form of film subsidies.

Show us the way Moore on. Give all your wealth away, pick up your communist manifesto and go preach the good news of equally sharing the wealth with all. You cannot because you are a false prophet to your own false cause.

Meanwhile, let’s replace Moore with a useless fraudulent filmmaker to be named later.

It way take quite a while to find one with a low enough IQ (or a sufficiently repulsive persona) to make it an even swap.

When Michael's beloved Revolution comes, here's what he'll find when he gets to that house.

"There was living space for thirteen families! In this one house!"

Moore knows what he’s working towards.

He just prefers not to say.

if Moore were removed from the captalist system, and actually paid what he was worth, he'd be homeless and broke!!

Think Fatso needs to put his money where his big mouth is...

Can’t believe anyone gives Fatso any credibility. Keep in mind this clown had stock in Haliburton and lost a lot of money. NOW you know why this liar is so crazy. Send this link to your Leftist friends that think Fatso is King.

If I was near a protest I’d make a poster out of this picture and join the protestors. They need to know just how rich Moore is. Because I don’t think they really know. They’re stupid and need educating.

Bolting bumpers onto Buicks is much more honorable than being a con man, which Michael Moore is.

They are very stupid. The OWS folks were interviewed by an ex comrade from Russia. Wait for the Korea moment.

We should replace gravity, too. I don’t like weighing what I do. And I should be able to jump higher as well.

Stupid gravity. We need another system to keep people stuck to the ground.

“We should replace gravity, too. I don’t like weighing what I do. And I should be able to jump higher as well.”

Some minor adjustments to Planck’s Constant and the speed of light would do a lot of good too.

Let’s just get started by divvying up all of Michael Moore’s stuff.

Pol Pot, Che , Mao , Lenin and Stalin all came up with some very innovative solutions to the question , “What comes nest”.

Read the “Black Book of Communism” to get a hint of what comes next

As I've said many times, the vast majority of lefties are clueless morons but there is a segment--the "vanguard" as Lenin called it==that understands exactly what Revolution means and how monstrously bloody it would be, and is in full approval anyway.

If there is any such thing as ironic cosmic justice, Moore will be the first millionaire to be executed by a communist regime.
