Michael Moore: America 'Founded on Genocide and Built on the Backs of Slaves'
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2012/01/21/michael-moore-america-founded-genocide-and-built-backs-slaves ^

Schlockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore said recently that America was "founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves."

This disgusting statement was made at the same January 12 Symposium on Poverty at which he claimed older whites who didn't vote for Barack Obama in 2008 were racist.

MICHAEL MOORE: "It’s not envy, it’s war, and it is a class war, and it’s a war that has been perpetrated by the rich on to everybody else. I mean, the class war is one they started. The mistake they've made, just to deal with the racial part of this, is their boot has been on the necks of people of color since we began. This is a nation founded on genocide and built, built on the backs of slaves. Alright?"

Moore-"So, so we started with a racial problem. We went, we tried to actually eliminate one entire race, and then we used another race to build this country actually quite quickly as a new country into a world power. This country never would have had the wealth that it had had it not had slavery for a couple of hundred years. If it had had, if it had had to pay people, if it actually had to pay people to build America, you know, we might just be at that point in Utah where we're joining the two rails together maybe at this point right now."

So the United States wouldn't have participated in the Industrial Revolution if not for slavery? And all of the fabulous inventions created by Americans after the Civil War wouldn't have occurred if slavery didn't exist prior? One and a half subsequent centuries of innovation and expansion would never have come to fruition?

Exactly what kind of an America-hating, history-challenged nincompoop do you have to be to not only think such nonsense but actually say it at a symposium - to applause, no less! - being aired on C-SPAN?

The Industrial Revolution made America a world economic power. And it happened in the north, where slavery was banned.

Michael Moore doesn't know history very well. He imagines it began with his ancestors ~ who were all bloody minded genocidal maniacs.

Sorry, Mike, other people started history ~

Last time I checked Michael, you and your applauding audience are free to leave this horrible country and never return.

That simpering pile of blubber doesn’t know American history. Then too he won’t acknowledge it was DEMOCRATS that kept the South in slavery and that “separate but equal” nonsense plus all the DEMOCRAT governors that went along with it plus the DEMOCRAT sheriffs that attacked Blacks and civil right workers who were murdered when they went down there. Oh yeah Moore, tell us all about how thousands of WHITES lost their lives during the Civil War to end slavery. Idiot!

Calling the White man genocidal is just plain stupid.

Does anyone not realize that if we had wanted eliminate all American Indians, there would not be any around now.

I’m not really one of those people who say “Eat the Rich”, but I have to observe that Michael Moore’s corpse could feed quite a lot of people, and if his vast wealth were redistributed, a lot of people could be given stock in fine companies like Philip Morris, Monsanto, or Halliburton.

Napoleon once described his duplicitous Foreign Minister Tallyrand as “a silk stocking full of shit”. There is no point anymore in referring to Michael Moore as anything other than a fat sack of shit. That’s all I have to say about him.

If there wasn’t slavery there’d be far, far fewer black people in America today living much better lives than they would ever hope to in Africa.

I have to admit that the governments of my Massachusetts and Maine ancestors voted to pay a bounty for Indian scalps, and some of them probably earned that bounty - some of them were definitely killed or captured by Indians.

And I have to admit that some of my Virginia and North Carolina ancestors owned slaves, and they dispossessed Indians of their lands.

And then, so what? What human being is not descended from victors and conquerors and invaders, rapists and murderers and slavers? The miracle is that we are capable of goodness at all. What society other than our Western, Christian society has ever felt remorse for its deeds, and tried to make some amends?

America was “founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves.”

Applying the same logic: Liberalism was founded on the bellies of idiots.

If he honestly believes this, how can he live one single more day without giving every cent of his ill gotten gains to “people of color”? Why is he keeping even one single penny of that money that he clearly doesn’t deserve? He should be ashamed of himself and his ancestors.

I think Moore is trying to perpetuate the myth that whites were trying to eradicate all Native-Americans by deliberately exposing them to smallpox, like Ward Churchill claimed. Yeah, some were exposed to smallpox, but it was accidental.

First of all, the genocide didn't happen.

By 1648 about 90% of the Indians had died of disease ~ at this point in time the reigning theory is they died of hanta virus (which was a recurring problem in the Americas, not something brought from the Old World).

I once read an analysis that was rather persuasive. Let's say you lined up all the Spaniards in the New World from roughly 1500 to 1600 on one side, and then you had all the Indians who'd lived here at any time in that century line up and begin marching at the Spaniards where they would be instantly chopped down (with their bodies instantly disappearing).

The Spaniards would soon be overrun and the Indians would keep on coming.

Viewed as an invasion the movement of the Old World peoples to the New World required resources that were simply not available at the time. Only the rich had boats. Virtually everyone else was poor as a church mouse. Those boats had very limited capacities, and it wouldn't be until the late 1600s until anyone figured out how to move large numbers of humans in boats across the Atlantic.

There were tens of millions of Indians. They'd been here a long time and occupied an enormous percentage of the land. They excelled in the domestication and development of fruits and vegetables.

In short they were well prepared to take advantage of the newcomers. Alas, they didn't get the chance because they were killed by one of the great plagues that periodically swept the Americas.

All of that means that Michael is more than willing to believe lies about things that never happened.

Someday he will be struck down by the viruses that live and breed in large Hoagies everywhere. He will blame it on the Olive Oil and the Greek slave masters who poisoned him.
