    Michael Moore Hours After Newtown Massacre: 'Guns Don't Kill People! Americans Kill People!' Democracy Now! aired an excerpt of an address made by filmmaker Michael Moore delivered just hours after the Newtown massacre. Moore criticized America for the violence, saying that "guns don’t kill people, Americans kill people," and then pointed to U.S. wars, drone strikes and "other forms of violence." Transcript below: MICHAEL MOORE: Earlier today, a crazy man went to an elementary school and attacked 22 children in China. 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...

    NN's Joe Johns hyped a recent Michael Moore speech on Monday's Newsroom as "incredible" and "riveting." Johns highlighted a clip from the left-wing film director, who spoke at a pro-union rally in Madison, Wisconsin, where he claimed that "America is not broke...The country is awash in wealth and cash. It's just that it's not in your hands! It has been transferred, in the greatest heist in history, from the workers...to the banks and the portfolios of the uber-rich." Anchor Brooke Baldwin brought on the correspondent for the regular "Political Pop" segment 40 minutes into the 4 pm Eastern hour, and...

    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...

    Michael Moore calls soldier accused of leaks 'patriotic' By Bridget Johnson - 08/21/10 10:33 AM ET Michael Moore called Pfc. Bradley Manning, suspected in the leak of tens of thousands of classified Afghanistan war documents to the WikiLeaks website, "courageous" and said he'll donate $5,000 toward his defense. The controversial filmmaker told the Associated Press that Manning did the right thing in exposing "war crimes." Manning, 22 and a former intelligence analyst with the Army in Iraq, faces up to 52 years in prison on charges that he leaked a video of a 2007 Apache helicopter attack to WikiLeaks, which...

    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,...

    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,...

On NBC's Sept. 15 "Jay Leno Show," Moore appeared and was asked what was wrong with capitalism. "Capitalism is actually legalized greed," Moore said. "There's nothing wrong with people earning money, starting a business, selling shoes. That's not what I'm talking about. We're at a point now Jay, in this country, where the richest 1 percent, the very top 1 percent have more financial wealth than the bottom 95 percent...

    VENICE (Reuters) - Capitalism is evil. That is the conclusion of U.S. documentary maker Michael Moore's latest movie "Capitalism: A Love Story," which premieres at the Venice film festival on Sunday. Blending his trademark humour with tragic individual stories, archive footage and publicity stunts, the 55-year-old launches an attack on the capitalist system, arguing that it benefits the rich and condemns millions to poverty.

    Capitalism: A Love Story, Michael Moore’s new documentary, will be release by Overture Films on October 2, 2009. Capitalism will explore the root causes of the global economic meltdown and take a comical look at the corporate and political shenanigans that culminated in what Moore described as “the biggest robbery in the history of this country” - the massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer money to private financial institutions. Moore has made three of the top six highest-grossing documentaries of all time including Cannes Palme d’Or winner Fahrenheit 9/11, 2008 Academy Award(r) nominee Sicko, and Bowling for Columbine, the Academy Award(r)...

The President of the United States, the elected representative of the people, has just told the head of General Motors -- a company that's spent more years at #1 on the Fortune 500 list than anyone else -- "You're fired!" I simply can't believe it. This stunning, unprecedented action has left me speechless for the past two days. I keep saying, "Did Obama really fire the chairman of General Motors? The wealthiest and most powerful corporation of the 20th century? Can he do that? Really? Well, damn! What else can he do?!" This bold...

    There’s an on-going fight for the minds of college students in southern California, and cash is the weapon of choice. The battlefield is situated on the campus of Cal State San Marcos, and three sides are vying for position: a man trying to honor his fallen mother, a number of politically charged students and a ten pound gorilla – better known as Michael Moore. Moore, recently, awarded six students $2,500 each after they applied for his first annual “Freedom of Speech Scholarship at Cal State San Marcos.” According to Moore’s website, the scholarship rewarded students who “have stood up to...

    September 6, 2004 -- SEN. Hillary Clinton might seem as liberal as can be to the Republicans who convened here, but some gay activists are disappointed in her failure to endorse same-sex marriage. "Clinton maintains that she is against same-sex marriage on 'religious, moral and traditional grounds.' She maintains that marriage is between only a man and a woman," fumes one gay rabble-rouser. "She also repeatedly says to whoever asks that she would have voted for the Defense of Marriage Act had she been in Congress back then." Now the activists are focusing on designer Marc Jacobs, who has a...
