Democracy Now! aired an excerpt of an address made by filmmaker Michael Moore delivered just hours after the Newtown massacre.

A few hours before Connecticut, an elementary school was attacked in China by an insane man, and 22 children...
  • Moore: 'Doesn't Trayvon Martin Have the Right to Kill Zimmerman If Zimmerman Is Stalking Him?'

    "Doesn't Trayvon Martin actually have the right to kill George Zimmerman if George Zimmerman is stalking him and the police have told him not to stalk him?" This question was actually asked Tuesday on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight by schlockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore during a discussion about gun laws in the wake of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado (video follows with transcript and commentary): MICHAEL MOORE: Can I say something about that? About the Trayvon Martin thing? Let me put it this way. Let's say George Zimmerman’s right when he says Trayvon Martin tried to kill him. Alright. But it...

    Michael Moore gets hot on gun control By MACKENZIE WEINGER | 7/24/12 6:03 PM EDT Filmmaker Michael Moore on Tuesday posed a tough question for President Barack Obama on gun control. The director of “Bowling for Columbine,” a documentary about the 1999 massacre at a Colorado high school, said the president has to be the “leader” on the issue and praised his speech in Aurora, Colo., as “powerful," but added that he wondered what Obama would do if his two daughters had been in the theater where last week's mass shooting took place. “And yet when he brought his own...

    As President Barack Obama's key adviser once said, "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste." So the Oscar-winning progressive behind "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Sicko" turned to Facebook to spread his reaction. And, typically, Moore didn't waste the opportunity to allow a single tragedy to paint his homeland in ugly terms. "Having spent much time in the Aurora/Denver/Littleton area over the years, I am too sad about this most recent tragedy to comment at the moment, other than to say this: I fear anthropologists and historians will look back on us and simply say we were a violent...

    In a stunning development, a clerical error in Wisconsin has transformed what many expected to be a long, ugly legal battle favoring the Left into an almost certain victory for the Right, outraging leftists like Michael Moore, to the point where the radical "documentarian" has stopped bothering to hide his disdain for the democratic process. The intense Wisconsin Supreme Court race between the incumbent Republican, Justice David Prosser, and his Democrat challenger, state DNR enforcer JoAnn Kloppenburg, ended Wednesday with the latter declaring victory based on the Associated Press’s calculation of a 204-vote lead. Prosser didn't budge, and most predicted...

    Not to worry, Moore promises one of those tranquil conflicts devoid of violence. What is it about self-proclaimed peace lovers that they are so often bellicose? Latest example -- the agitprop filmmaker's appearance on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow show last night, coming shortly after the GOP-led Wisconsin state senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of Gov. Scott Walker's proposal to curtail collective bargaining for most public employees. After Maddow introduced Moore and praised his "barnburning speech" in Madison over the weekend, Moore said this: I just want to say, anybody who lives within driving distance of Madison, Wisc., right now should make...

    Some think of September 11 as a date for solemn remembrance. Others see it as another occasion for idiocy. Take Michael Moore's 9/11 message: "I am opposed to the building of the "mosque" two blocks from Ground Zero. I want it built on Ground Zero." He says it's because Islam was "stolen" from the real Muslims at the Twin Towers, and it should be given back on the same spot. But he's not finished: "There is a McDonald's two blocks from Ground Zero. Trust me, McDonald's has killed far more people than the terrorists." And the terrorists remind Moore of...

    (CNN) – Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is weighing in on the proposed Islamic Community Center in New York City, stirring the the pot by saying he doesn't want it to be built near Ground Zero but rather on Ground Zero. "I want it built on Ground Zero. Why? Because I believe in an America that protects those who are the victims of hate and prejudice," Moore writes in an open letter on his website. "I believe in an America that says you have the right to worship whatever God you have, wherever you want to worship. "And I believe in...

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,...

    The leftist film maker Michael Moore advertises himself as a Catholic. He makes rather a big deal out of it. Yesterday in an open letter congratulating himself for Bart Stupak's capitulation, he revealed with clarity his contempt for the sanctity of human life and the inherent and equal dignity of every member of the human family. Some Catholic. I suppose we should be grateful that at least he doesn't repesent himself as a "pro-life Catholic" (or even a "pro-life Democrat"). I'll paste in the letter below. (P.S. It's worth noting that Moore sees Stupak's action for what it was---a capitulation,...

    We can abandon Afghanistan and it can revert to being an Islamist police state run by the Taliban. It can return to being a safe haven for those who want to destroy America, exterminate the Jewish race, and create a world in which marrying children and mutilating women’s genitals are the norm. War is indeed hell — not that I’m in any way qualified to make that judgment. (Read Karen Northon to get a more informed view. Patriotic heroes like Leo Thorsness also have a thing or two to say on the matter.) But which is worse: war or a...
