Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore and CNBC's Rick Santelli couldn't be more philosophically opposite. Style of argument differs too: Michael Moore assumes the worst in people that oppose his view.
In a March 12 appearance on WNYC 93.9 FM/820 AM's "The Brian Lehrer Show," Moore was asked to react to Rick Santelli's February 2009 call for action against the Obama administration proposal to offer a housing relief through the taxpayer to those who got in over their heads on their mortgages.
"Ah, the sound of angry white guys wafting its way through the airwaves," Moore said. "Obviously that was a pivotal moment for that, but if you notice what he's railing against is he's blaming the whole mortgage crisis on the little guy who took out a mortgage he shouldn't have taken out, living beyond his means, having a home with too many bathrooms, when in fact - as my movie points out - the FBI of all people, have stated clearly through their own investigation that 80 percent of this mortgage crisis that we've gone through has been caused by the banks and lending institutions, by the fraud committed by the banks and the lending institutions - not by the person who's living beyond their means."

Do these words even mean anything?!
I suppose that I, too, am classist and bigoted; I can’t stand fat, loudmouthed slobs whose 15 minutes of fame ran out 8 years ago.
He’s still breathing. How unfortunate for us.
That fat turd is probably worth a lot more than Rick Santelli. Capitalism has been very very good to that blob!
“Ah, the sound of angry white guys wafting its way through the airwaves,” Moore said.
Take a look in the mirror, you solicialist pig... assuming one large enough exists to accomplish the task.
Terms the left will use against ANYONE who dares to disagree with their Utopian views:
Mike resting on the beach.
According to Merriam-Webster, “Classist” is actually a word. “Bigotist” appears to be Mikey’s clever creation. Such dizzying intellect.
I’ve only noticed one difference between Moore and Santelli. Santelli is sane.
I think those are in the same dictionary with “the fictitious of orange alerts,” as Moore said when accepting his lolOscar.
This fat hog has been making the rounds of the leftie talk shows lately. Unbelieveable that even leftists could want this bloated oaf as a spokesman.
