Michael Moore: Americans’ desire to own guns stems from racism
dailycaller.com ^ | December 20, 2012

Friday night, on the heels of last week’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., the left-leaning Current TV is planning to air progressive filmmaker Michael Moore’s ten-year-old Columbine documentary “Bowling for Columbine,” with Moore revisiting the film to accuse American gun-owners of being motivated by racial fears.

Gun ownership, Moore said, “cuts down to the heart of our race problem that we still haven’t resolved.”

“I think we’re a very frightened people,” Moore said. “I think we’ve been frightened ever since we landed on these shores. We were frightened of the native people.; we were frightened of the slaves we brought over, as we should have been. And those in power have known how to manipulate us with fear. And we’ve started wars over being told lies about, you know — whether it was in the Spanish-American War, the Mexican-American War. You can go through so many of these wars we’ve been in throughout history — right up through the Iraq War — where we’re just lied to because those in power knew if they just put enough fear out there....”

The original gun control laws in my state were to make it tougher for black men to get guns.

Those laws were aimed at either the blacks (South and urban Midwest), or in some cases the Irish, Italians, and Jews (prohibition era gangsters).

Moore figures he can play the Race Card and poof! he becomes relevant again. Seems kind of desperate to me. Maybe he is running out of money and is grasping for straws. Idiots do things like that.

I cruised by a gun store in Birmingham, Al. today and half of the “standing room only” shop were black patrons. :)

"Just of interest......does this blob have a wife or kids?"

Moore is married to producer Kathleen Glynn who brought a daughter, Natalie, into the marriage. There are not other children.

Moore has deteriorated to a pre-school reasoning level - much if not most firearms violence in the US is by black people - almost entirely perpetrated with illegal guns. Why don’t you address that problem, Moore, you disgusting blob of brainless suet?

Let’s try adjusting American murder statistics by removing one very particular urban demographic out.

It's the statistic media and Hollywood types refuse to report:

Concealing black hate crimes

Snip: To Holder, blacks are the permanent victims. But his department's own data say otherwise. In most cases of interracial crimes, the victim is white and the perp is black. Black criminals choose white victims 45% of the time, while whites victimize blacks 3% of the time. More than twice as many whites are murdered by a black than cases of a white murdering blacks. \

I think Michael Moore’s wanting to eat good food stems from racism.

See how simple that was? Wow, it’s great to be a liberal! You never have to mention proof of anything you say no matter how dumb it is!

There are some guys who are not fit to own a firearm.

Some days, he seems a little freaky. Maybe, we can turn him in for odd behavior who seeks counseling. is that Obama’s new plan now? Turn in the neighbor.

“What's the race of a RSnake and Cmouth?” That's Racist!

Cottonmouth is what you wake up with after a night of drinking alcohol, water moccasin is the snake that exposes its white mouth when threatened and it will shake its rattle less tail if you stay around long enough to notice such things. I once watched a WM eat a frog and when the frog was half way down the hatch head first I thought the snake in a safe state so I picked it up and that moccasin spit that frog out like a bullet and was ready to bite me when I dropped it.

The frog was so grateful it granted me three wishes. My first wish was for a clean pair of underwear. The other two wishes were inconsequential.

Lesson: a water moccasin with a frog in its mouth is still loaded. They are like guns. All guns are loaded.

“So why is that? What are they really afraid of? What do they think of — who’s going to break into the house? Do they think it’s little freckled-face Jimmy down the street? I don’t think so. I don’t think that’s who they’re afraid of. And it cuts down to the heart of our race problem that we still haven’t resolved. And I thought it would be interesting to take a look at that in a movie.”

Maybe the crook is racist the way he chooses which house to break into. Now THAT sounds like a race problem, but it doesn’t fit we’ll into moore’s movie plot.

My desire for a gun is based on fear of an out of control Federal government. That is the reason the Founders gave us the 2nd amendment and I trust them as to the need for an armed citizenry

Fat boy may have a point. People are worried that when the govt goes broke or there is a catastrophe that empties the store shelves or ebt cards, hordes of Obama voters will decend on the burbs to get what they need. If most of those voters are a certain race thats too bad.
