“What are these white people so afraid of in the suburbs?” Moore asked. “Are they thinking little red-headed freckle-faced Jimmy down the street is going to kill them, mug them? I don’t think so.”

So, Mikey, let’s see you eschew any sort of armed guards.

A tyrannical, Constitution-ignoring federal government is what’s driving Americans to cling to their guns.

Fear of diets and skinny people is driving Moore to be a fat ignorant liberal slob.

If Michelle is battling obesity, she needs to set a good example and tell fatboy to lose the greasy burgers.

I am not afraid, and I am sure he is not either with his six armed guards.

Racism isn’t a factor, but fear sure is. I definitely fear people who are as stupid as Micheal Moore. They will end up killing millions, just like all the other “great” communist regimes have.

Stupidity should be feared by everyone. Of course, MM is too stupid to understand that.

Isn’t it interesting that “Michael Morre” doesn’t require a “barf alert”? You just see the name and you know.

I never knew I was so afraid and racist.

And I must be, because Michael Moore, a true genius, has told me so.

First, call it what you want, Mr. Fat Guy Liberal, but demographics matter and certain “groups” tend to disproportionately commit violent crime. To be outside of one of these “groups” and not be cautious and self-preservationist is foolish. I’d rather be a living “racist” and not a dead “enlightened” progressive.

Second, Mr. Fat Guy Liberal, you state in the article “I don’t believe that the gun control laws that we want to pass – and I want them passed and I am fighting very hard for them – that’s not going to really going to change the problem.” So, what motivates you and your friends to pass a law that doesn’t solve a problem? And what motivates the journalist talking to you to not ask the same question?

A fundamental distrust of our government, born out of repeated deceit, misrepresentation and disregard for our well-being, does not equate to “fear” and it certainly does not equate to racism.

So Michael own up. Why do you need armed guards? You live in a nice neighborhood, primarily white, you travel first class, primarily white what do you need armed guards for? Make sure no one cuts ahead of you at the buffet table? Are you afraid that someone you made fun of in one of your “documentaries” might want to get even, and you are too afraid to stand up for yourself? Do you use your guards to keep the common people you say you represent at arm’s length? Oh do tell Michael.

“What are these white people so afraid of in the suburbs?” Moore asked.

I've got a 18" barrel Remington 887 loaded with alternating buckshot and slugs and with a tactical sight, a Les Baer 1911 .45 ACP loaded with Glaser Safety ammo and equipped with night sights, and an old Winchester lever 30-30 with high velocity hollow points and with an EOTech 512 sight - all accessible within a few seconds from anywhere in my home. What am I afraid of? Nothing at all.

No, not at all. We think some fat ass who has a holier-than-thou attitude will use his money and his influence over low-information voters to come try and get our guns.

Moore better watch out for "little red-headded freckle-faced Jimmy". He knows how to shoot too.

Is Mr. Wideload talking about the NRA historic effort to insure black Southern’s Second Amendment rights to protect themsevles from the KKK, kind of racism? Or is he talking about the modern racist who wish to keep inner city blacks from obtaining the means to defend themselves from the criminals who murder so many, and for which the goverment and LSM shows little interest in stopping?

It’s not “racism” that tells us that red-headed freckle-faced Jimmy down the street is not likely to kill us and D’Jermone is more likely to try to kill us...

it’s statistics.

Well,he’s *half* right.Fear is a big factor...fear of my government.Any government.Rat Party...Republican...whatever.I don’t trust a single politician...or Party...enough to convince me that being entirely unarmed is a good idea.Add to that the prospect of violent crime and I say “thank God for the Bill of Rights”.

“What are these white people so afraid of in the suburbs?”

Moore was raised and went to school in a white suburb of Flint - where whites moved when "White Flight" hit Flint in the 1960s because of forced busing.

He and his dad owned rental property in his home town of Davison. Did he rent to blacks or Hispanics? Don't think so, because there weren't any in the vastly predominant white suburb.

He lives in a mostly white Manhattan apartment.

He has a northern Michigan retreat in a neighborhood where there are no known whites.

Maybe we should ask Moore why doesn't like living close to blacks.

“...little red-headed, freckle-faced Mikey down the street...

I am beginning to think that Fatboy Moore is a closet conservative that just makes millions “acting’ like a lunatic moonbat.

I mean some leftist talk in words that at least make sense. Some even make a valid, although stupid point. Fatboy seems to try and say the most ridiculous things that sound outright comical. Its almost as if you check to see what fatboy said today like you would check todays comic strip.... Just for a laugh.
