Entertainment sites like E! Online and Show Biz 411 were aflutter today with the news that filmmaker Michael Moore has filed for a divorce to end his 21-year marriage to Kathleen Glynn. Glynn was also a collaborator/producer on many of Moore’s films.

Roger Friedman at Show Biz 411 is especially saddened by this event. I can’t say I am. To me Moore is one of the most hypocritical people of our time, someone who has lied and distorted his way to a net worth of $50 million while the citizens of Detroit, one hour’s drive from his sainted Flint, survive under horrifying Third World conditions (40% of their traffic lights don’t work!) in a now bankrupt city.

Meanwhile, the supposedly working class Moore has hired a “powerful lawyer,” according to Friedman’s article, no doubt to protect his share of his gigantic fortune.

It will be interesting to see how Glynn deals with this. She undoubtedly has a lot of interesting things to say, if she decides to open up. Moore has a long history of two-facedness, going back to his early television days when he tried to prevent young writers working for him from joining the Writers Guild. (Imagine that — the great progressive is anti-union.)

I don't know what to make of Moore, seeing as how I can't read his mind. What he really thinks, and what he says he thinks, may be two entirely different things.

That's because Moore is a somewhat ambitious self-made man who created a persona for himself. The problem with a demagogue, particularly in this now extended era of political correctness, is that one must demonize entire swathes of humanity in order to bring credibility to one's persona, and thereby make oneself marketable, and bring in money.

What we're really talking about in regard to Moore is a man who is only one of literally tens of thousands of PC racialist hate-mongers and sexists who tout themselves as anti-hate-mongers and anti-sexists.

Being that we're all of us human, if there are racists who hide behind the "battle pride" of the Confederate flag, and anti-Semites who hide behind anti-Zionism, then surely there are intensely feral bigots who hide behind notions of racial justice.

Like a laser targeting system, the Trayvon Martin case has accurately outed a gigantic crop of die-hard racists every bit as sad as the stereotype of the gum-chewing, sunglasses-wearing southern sheriff. Like a domino mask can hide the identity of a superhero, not wearing sunglasses or chewing gum can hide the modern PC racist.

Moore has amassed a fortune, but at what cost to this nation's harmony? Moore's films are no more documentaries than reality TV shows. They are scripted and fake; they are propaganda worthy of a Nazi, and with as much latent hate speech. Moore is a likely candidate for a new "A Face In the Crowd," as he no doubt sees his own as no more than chumps. This divorce may be an open mic moment.

Say what you will, but Ralph Nader, even with his disgusting teeth, is a true warrior. His cause defies reason, and he's probably crazy as a junebug, but, by God, he is consistent.
Moore looks like a pig, he acts like a pig; yet, he is a disgrace to pigs.
He is yet one more steaming pile of hypocrite (a la Al Sharpton; every black "community organizer" every La Raza dolt; every Obama "contributor" who somehow only gets the gov't to invest in their shady on -the-edge-of-bankruptcy schemes who is so busy trying to get you to give them even more dough to blow.
Al Frikken Capone would be PROUD!
People say, "Well, Washington business as usual".
They're idiots, and they are historically ignorant.
I would say, "Feed him to the pigs."
But I respect Pigs too much.

Please. Describing Michael Moore as "porcine" is an insult to pigs.

Reminds me of another liberal/obese couple I know. Two water balloons and 45 minutes and I still can't figure out how they have marital relations.

"Indeed, Moore has always been the true face of contemporary progressivism, a meticulously constructed lie to the self and others, writ large. You are what you say you are, even if your actions are in complete contradiction to it. It is the politics of self-congratulation and Moore was, maybe still is, a master of it."

He can be a master of it only because the mainstream news media allow him (help him) to tell lies.

You don't know what to make of Moore? Simple he is a used car salesman-politician-carnie-hustler- pimp-liar-thief-deceiver-hypocrite a simple POS who figured out how to make money from stupid people who patronize his movies- seeing more with Jimmy Carter at the DNC proves how stupid people are

Hey Mikey..... look at Detroit. You helped 'build that.' Did your wife wake up one morning and realize who she was married to?

My guess is that he'll give her a lot of money with a stipulation that
she won't write a book and expose his hypocracy.

The Left gets their self-congratulations and we get our schadenfreude. The former leads to the latter. Both are wrong I suppose, but we're the victims! If they weren't so hypocritical we'd never get the temptation to indulge.

No, it's just relaxing to write about the fat hypocrite instead of the skinny socialist.
