Michael Moore Filled With 'Despair' Over ObamaCare, a 'Victory for Capitalism'
newsbusters.org ^ | March 26, 2010 | Tim Graham

Posted on 03/27/2010 6:33:29 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Appearing on the radical-left public radio network Pacifica on Tuesday to promote his DVD of Capitalism: A Love Story, filmmaker Michael Moore called the passage of ObamaCare a victory...for capitalism:

Well, I mean, to me, it all comes back to this issue of an economic system that is truly evil. And the healthcare bill that was passed ultimately will be seen as a victory for capitalism, because it protected the capitalist model of providing healthcare for people. In other words, we’re not to help people unless there’s money to be made from it. That is so patently disgusting and immoral, but that’s the system. That’s where we live.

Moore wanted the leftists to get right back to pushing a "single payer" option that outlaws insurance companies:

There’s nothing to be proud of with this bill being passed, other than maybe a temporary satisfaction of watching Republicans -- you know, watching their spray-on tan fall off out of utter -- through utter anger.

Moore doesn't feel that Obama is authentically leftist. He's a sellout:

I don’t think he really cared about a public option. I don’t think he really believes in true universal healthcare that’s managed by we the people. He was the number one recipient of health industry money in the Senate and when he was running for president, so I’m not surprised that he had very little interest in doing any of that.

Now that the healthcare law has passed and now that we are well on our road to socialism, can Michael Moore retire and melt into the distance?

There is a lot to melt away....

I'm sure the SOB would like for the movie industry to be nationalized... although the products would only be slightly more propaganda filled.

Michael Moore would prefer a system where money is lost to a system where money is made.

But I think he is misunderestimating Obamacare. Lots of money will be poured into a hole in the ground via Obamacare.

All Obama did was turned the insurance companies into government contractors and forced us all under their thumb.

Capitalism never forced me to buy insurance. It took democrats and socialism to do that.

Using MSNBC logic, Michael Moore is only opposed to Obamacare because he is white and the president is black.

This guy is woefully sub-par as a serious thinker.

The foundation is in Moore, and the infrastructure is going up in record time.

How did the Democrat shills phrase it, “Get over it!”

Let me just add..., “YOU FRICKEN MORON!”

He doesn’t approve of people having to pay for healthcare. But someone has to deliver the healthcare: it is an economic good, like everything else desirable. I suppose that, like some other leftists, he thinks also that FOOD and housing should also be free. And maybe also education, and transportation, and vacations, and clothing. Why should people have to pay for these things? They should all be rights, as that UN manifesto says.

He’s a sicko communist. However, he does seem to SELL his movies. Hey, fatso! Why aren’t they free?

to me, it all comes back to this issue of an economic system that is truly evil.

I thought capitalism was evil too. When I was TWELVE. However, it didn't take long for me to realize that the admonitions against "selfishness" were a sneaky, twisted package deal designed to confuse the fact that there are, in fact, TWO entirely different kinds of selfishness, and that they have OPPOSITE moral standing. The GOOD kind of selfishness, taking care of yourself and your family, is what America was built on, achieving greater prosperity and happiness than the world has ever known. On the other hand, the BAD kind of selfishness -- taking advantage of unwilling others, with extortion, coercion, threats of jail sentences, ultimately at gunpoint -- is what socialists and other collectivists actually rely upon, INCLUDING Obama AND MOORE.

"To embrace a collectivist system ... and thereby jeopardize sustained economic growth, inevitably misallocate scarce resources, and almost necessarily perpetuate destitution, hardly merits moral acclaim. Indeed, intellectuals in general and church leaders in particular who bewail the continued existence of poverty absolutely defined, and who state that they yearn for a world in which the hungry are fed, the naked clothed, and the destitute housed, yet who ceaselessly undermine the very system which, to date, has best done what they claim to value most, are, surely, moral imbeciles." -- The Reverend Doctor John K. Williams, -- The Reverend Doctor John K. Williams here

In other words, we’re not to help people unless there’s money to be made from it. That is so patently disgusting and immoral, but that’s the system. That’s where we live.

An open endorsement of slavery.

When people aren't allowed to make money off their labor, there is no other term for it.

The Virtue of Selfishness.

Yep. One word. Two meanings -- one being a virtue, the other a vice. I don't believe the Chinese have that problem. I may be wrong, but it is my understanding that they have two distinctly different words for the two distinctly different meanings (can anyone corroborate that, please?). Thus they can't be made to feel guilty, or at least ashamed, of making a profit by satisfying other peoples' needs, as so many westerners can.

Excellent website! Thanks for sharing the link.

I wish Atlas Shrugged was required reading in our schools. While many may not agree with Ayn Rand’s somewhat anti-religion stance....her conclusions on communism and the devastation it always brings is life changing for those that have read her works.

He probably joins MO damning the obesity problem in this country.

In fairness at least that is a subject he definitely knows something about, being a fat a$$ himself.
