Skip to comments.How anti-capitalist Michael Moore built a £30m fortune
Posted on 07/25/2014 3:01:02 PM PDT by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis
Dont be hoodwinked by his casual demeanour and capitalism rants Michael Moores millions make him one of the richest men in American media.
Film-maker Moore, 60, made his name for anti-establishment politics with Capitalism: A Love Story (2009) and Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) accruing a multi-million dollar fortune in the process.
Moores impressive property portfolio was laid bare during divorce proceedings from his wife of 22 years, Kathleen Glynn.
The political controversialist finalised his split from 58-year-old Glynn on Tuesday in a US court in northern Michigan, where the couple owns a £1.2m lakeside home.
The 10,000 square-foot luxury pad is one of nine properties belonging to the couple, who wed in Flint, Michigan, in 1991.
Moore shares his time between his home state and New York City, where he owns a Manhattan apartment.
The couple did not disclose how their fortune would be divided, with Moore commenting on his Facebook page: Kathleen and Michael have mutually and amicably reached a divorce settlement.
In an ironic postscript, Moore added a clip of Bruce Springsteen's Rosalita (Come Out Tonight) to the update. The divorce proceedings had been ongoing since June last year.

It’s OK to be rich as long as you push the left-wing agenda in public.
One might observe, if one were catty, that MM seems to have spend a large part of his fortune on food. I notice that they cut off the photo AtT = above the tummy.
Biggest troll of the century...lol. He scammed dumb libs and lefties out major bucks! I love him.
There’s a lot of money in fiction. BTW anyone notice Tubby hasn’t released one single solitary movie since The One was unconstitutionally elected?
How much is that in US bucks? $60 million? I’m going to write him and ask for some of that.
How did Moore manage to milk public funds, other than indirectly through encouraging people to vote in various liberal dream subsidies? I’d think that if you look at how he acts rather than what he preaches, you’d see a hard core capitalist. Now I would add to that description, “immoral,” but capitalism itself is amoral, it can lend itself nicely to good or to evil.
I guess to release any new media would be like gilding the lily for Moore.
Is that how the British say, "liar"?
Well, this is paltry compared to Al Gore’s little kingdom. Got to have some pity upon poor Moore.
“The revolution is over, comrades. The bourgeoisie won.”
A while back he bragged that employees at the movie theaters he owns make more than $12 an hour and have full medical and dental.
What he failed to mention that he staffs his theaters mostly with volunteers and only 2 or 3 are actual employees. He also doesn’t mention that he takes HUD money to open his theaters or that he was in a legal fight with studios over the unauthorized showing of their films.
Man, that is one cynical Moore. I can understand a consistent, if misguided, liberal. But this is evil.
Cynical, absolutely cynical. (Moore, not you.)
Moore is working on his next movie regarding: (pick one).
1.Showing how Obama and Clinton failed to protect the ambassador and others in Benghazi, failed to respond to ward off the attackers, and covered up the nature of the attack for weeks.
2. Describing the administrations use of the IRS to attack political opponents and sway election results, showing how the actions of Nixon pale by comparison.
3.A major expose showing the numerous actions and policies the administration has enacted supporting terrorists and religious fanatics who have threatened the US.
4. An expose of how some republicans made money buying real estate in their home districts, while owning condos in DC and northern VA.
It is not genetic. It is spiritual.
It’s one of many devils’ tricks. God isn’t the only spiritual being with principles. The devil is, too. The only problem is that the devil wants to destroy what God made.
I think that Gore and Mikey have a rich man’s bet over who can be the biggest hypocrite and get away with it like the two rich guys in trading places.
Through lies and deceit.
Why of course it would be the last one, if it had to be one of those.
Was he weaned on a lemon?
Lemon cake and pie.
I think a lot of liberals have an idea of “zero sum game” in the back of their minds. Money and goods that rich people have, must be money and goods that poor people can’t have. Except that most rich people DO invest in poor people, leaving the poor better off than if they had to be itinerant tinkers. There is even some trickle down from Moore, though he is more miserly than most other rich people are.
Oh, don’t make me hungry :-)
My diabetic dream
I don’t know if this information is current, but up to a couple of years ago, Michael Moore was invested in Halliburton, and some other large oil companies. He is said to own quite the stock portfolio.
Poor Mikey. When he invests in some liberal fund it loses. So he has to go begging to the enemy. Just can’t win.
I don’t have any problem with him selling movies for idiots. Heck I like science fiction. What I don’t like is him selling them as documentaries presented as truth and I don’t like anyone getting film subsidies.
A couple of minor changes and he could be a model free marketeer.
There needs to be a NEW DEFINITION Of”HYPOCRITE”:HYPOCRITE:”LIBERAL,Anti-Capitalism,America-Hating DemonRat”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The screwing he’s going to get for the screwing he’s not going to get. JMHO!
Well, I think a fiction writer should be very plain that his product is fiction. To present it as a new gospel is just garbage.
How did he do it?
Easy - a GREAT deal of phony baloney.
Proves once again that no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.
I wonder what the genetic defect is that causes that.
Simple, brainless, stupid human denial. The richer he gets the louder he’ll shout.
Phoney-baloney sales require baloney makers and baloney buyers.
Give me MORE!! More money. More food ( yeh yeh. cake. love cake). More houses. More.....
Must be why he keeps his fat face shut these days.
GW Bush been berry, berry good to Mikey Moore.
If it were not for GW, Moore would be serving popcorn at the snack bar, not showing films on the silver screen

Someone on DummyU dared criticize this bloated hypocrite and got attacked by all the rest of the Dummy denizens. Because good old Mikey was attacking all the OTHER! rich people. You know, all those one percenters. Unlike Mikey (who according to all the lefties is not a one percenter), they’re all greedy, rapacious capitalists. I swear, that’s what those nuts are saying.
Oh, don’t you dare call Mikey a hypocrite. All the nuts at DummyU think he’s wonderful. He stands up for the little people. He attacks all the rich corporations. Mikey is not like those nasty, rich Republicans. Those dopes don’t realize that’s how Mikey got rich...by gulling those suckers into seeing his movies and buying his books.
Of course you are correct, Mikey is not like those nasty, rich Republicans.
Most of the Republicans had to work for a living.
Mikey LIES for a living.
“I think a lot of liberals have an idea of zero sum game in the back of their minds. Money and goods that rich people have, must be money and goods that poor people cant have. “
You are right. I remember this philosophy being taught over and over again in school. The only class that didn’t teach this was when I took a business class. I was very surprised at the things they told me in that class that I had never heard in all my other classes at school.
Sounds like a good idea. Gotta spread the wealth and all....
