Michael Moore: Americans own guns because they're fearful racists
It's not really news that Michael Moore is ignorant, nor is it really news that he hates America. He is, and he does. But Michael Moore may be the most ignorant, pig-headed man alive. His latest, on the unwatchably boring Maddow show, is a ridiculous accusation against American gun owners.
"This needs to be said. That imaginary person that's going to break into your home and kill you. Who does that person look like?...We never want to talk about the racial or the class part of this ...It's the poor and it's people of color that we imagine that we're afraid of."
Actually, race and class are all liberals ever want to talk about. Those two subjects are almost literally all they ever bring up. Terrorism? It's caused by poverty. Crime? It's caused by poverty. Man gets convicted of a serious crime and goes to prison? It's the racist system's fault. And you're a racist for worrying about crime, you bigot.
It's funny how Moore jumps to accuse innocent Americans of racism, yet never hurls the same insult at terrorists who kill because of explicitly racist motives. For them, he just wants a change of target -- so the Americans he hates end up dead. But that's beside the point here.
Michael Moore's crass stupidity on gun ownership is towering. Americans of all races and background own guns. He singles out rural Americans for owning guns, noting that crime is less in rural areas than in urban areas, so in Moore's mind there's less of a need to own a gun in rural areas. Aside from the fact that this helps disprove his theory that racist fear leads to gun ownership, might it be possible, perhaps, that rural Americans own more guns because there are more natural threats in rural areas than in urban areas? Maybe? Moore also slams Arizonans for owning guns -- despite the fact that the border is totally unsecured, and Phoenix has become the kidnapping capital of the west.
Anyway, perhaps when he slams gun owners for being fearful racists, Michael Moore is just talking about himself.
Filmmaker Michael Moore's (search) bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York's JFK airport Wednesday night.
Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.
Who are you afraid of, Mikey? You racist, fearmongering monster.
