  • Michael Moore: General Motors 'criminals' deserve death

    Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore believes that whoever was responsible at General Motors for failing to recall a faulty ignition switch deserves death. "I am opposed to the death penalty, but to every rule there is usually an exception, and in this case I hope the criminals at General Motors will be arrested and made to pay for their pre-meditated decision to take human lives for a lousy ten bucks," he wrote. Moore blamed former President George W. Bush's transportation Department for ignoring the problem in 2007 and praised new GM CEO Mary Barra for telling the truth about the problem.

    PoliticusUSA ^ | February 22, 2014 | Sarah Jones
    So we have reached the aporia of the Right’s main argument against President Obama, wherein their arguments are deconstructing themselves via their own rhetoric undermining their claims. Republicans call the President a dictator and say his boot is on their necks, he is stomping on the Constitution, he is an “imperial” president. And yet all of them remain free to say these things in public, on TV. There isn’t even any backlash to speak of. Leading this charge is the still bitter Sarah Palin, whose behavior post 2008 loss makes John McCain’s look magnanimous and mature. Palin posited that after...

    Now it can be told. Emphasis on “now”:Precisely. ObamaCare will stumble along for the rest of the year, with a new wave of public irritation to come once small businesses start dumping employees onto the exchanges en masse, but the prospects for repeal will remain dim even if the GOP takes back the Senate. The numbers in Congress just aren’t there to beat an Obama veto, and by 2017 so many millions will have been assimilated into the program that some critical mass of GOP centrists will end up taking a “mend it, don’t end it” approach.

In the same show, skeptic Richard Dawkins said he is sure President Obama is an atheist.

    Right Side News ^ | October 1, 2013
    There is an all-out effort to demonize gun owners in the United States today. Those that own guns are repeatedly portrayed as being uneducated, mentally deficient racists in the mainstream media. No evidence is ever produced to actually back up those claims. Gun owners regularly make lists of “potential terrorists” in official government documents, and many government officials openly regard them as ultra-paranoid “conspiracy nuts” that are a serious threat to national security. Of course the truth is that gun owners are actually among the most law-abiding and patriotic people in the entire nation, but that doesn’t really fit with...

    Progressives can’t help themselves. When a normal person hears of a tragedy, they feel the natural range of emotions – fear, anger, sympathy, etc. But progressives are not normal humans. When they hear news of a tragedy their first thought is “How can this help the cause?” There’s something oddly perverse about this mental defect that somehow overrides decency in tragedy’s aftermath, but it’s as widespread amongst the political left as freckles are on redheads. Harsh? Perhaps. But sometimes the truth hurts. In the hours after the Boston Marathon bombing, the usual suspects of progressive grave-dancers succumbed to the music...

    One of the great ironies of the gun control debate is that everyone who calls for gun control still wants a man with a gun protecting him. Every governor in America has armed security. You have to go through a metal detector guarded by men with guns to get into the Capitol building. Barack Obama has hundreds of Secret Service agents carrying fully automatic weapons who protect his safety. Even run-of-the-mill Democrats who want to take guns away from everyone else will unhesitatingly put up the phone and call the police if they feel threatened -- so that a...

Moore ranted against the Senate majority leader after Reid removed Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s proposal to prohibit military-style weapons from the bill because they wouldn’t have the votes. The director behind “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11” said people need to “rise up” against the Nevada senator. “There will be an Aurora next month and there will be a Sandy Hook the month after that,” Moore told CNN.....

    Michael Moore on Reagan voters: They're dying By: Patrick Gavin December 13, 2012 09:16 AM EST Michael Moore thinks the country is getting better — “I’m very optimistic about the future” — he says, and what explains that? Reagan voters are dying. In a discussion on Current TV about Sheldon Adelson on Wednesday, Moore told host Jennifer Granholm, “Adelson and all those people will be gone, just like the people who voted for Reagan, the older generation that was really behind Reagan.” “If you were 55 or 60 years old in 1980 when Reagan ran, you’re dead now,” said Moore....

    With the spotlight on Wisconsin's union thugs rampaging across the state, one wonders why it took propaganda filmmaker Michael Moore so long to put himself in front of the news cameras to take some of their publicity for himself. But this weekend, Moore finally glommed onto the cameras making himself out to be a great supporter of the union's efforts in the Badger State. Once again, though, Moore proves to be a hypocrite. It was Moore, after all, that excluded using union workers in one of his recent films. Some supporter of unions! Filmmaker Moore attend a recent Wisconsin pro-union...

    This morning, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore wrote a joyful blogpost this morning celebrating President Obama’s victory. In his post, he thanked a number of people who helped make the president’s re-election possible, especially “Mother Nature.” “You, Mother Nature, with all your horrific damage, death and destruction you caused last week, you became, ironically, the undoing of a Party that didn’t believe in you or your climate changing powers,” Moore wrote, referring to Hurricane Sandy that hit the East Coast before the election. Moore also thanked Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey for being cordial with Obama during his visit. “Thank...

    Michael Moore has produced a campaign video for MoveOn.org so vile that he has to be considered guilty of elderly abuse for having the senior citizens say the words that Moore & Co. wrote in the script. The video supposedly takes place at Rosebud Nursing Home and the script calls for some of the residents there to use the foulest of language to express their anger at what is described is "Republican voter suppression." What this video really represents is an incredible anger on the part of the Left and how they won't be able to accept the election result...

    As anti-American riots and murderous attacks continue to erupt across the Middle East, America’s response will be dictated by a man that few Americans really know—Barack Obama. It’s time to change that. A new movie, 2016: Obama’s America , is doing just that, breaking box-office records in the process. Who would have thought a documentary, in the midst of a tight economy, would draw record crowds to America’s theatres? But a documentary is a story, and this one has a compelling message, and it's been my honor to help promote it. Americans are flocking to the theatres to learn the...
