Capitalism, that dirty little word that the left loves to throw around like a cheap insult. Perhaps there is no better example of hypocrisy, than “documentary” film maker Michael Moore. Moore is rich, and not just a little rich, but uber rich. He holds ranks among the Hollywood elitists with a big mouth and an even bigger appetite shall we say?
Moore liked to live in fairy tale land, masquerading around college campuses during his “Slacker Uprising” tour promoting his film of the same name, as an ordinary Joe. Dawning a baseball cap and a stinky unshaven face, he tried desperately to show America’s youth that he was somehow on their level. That he was just like them encouraging the 18-29 year olds to GOTV in the swing states. Speaking about how “the man” meaning the Republican party, was evil. This was during the 2004 Presidential elections and as history does tell, wasn’t successful for Moore because Bush won.
He made a living off of other peoples pain with documentaries such as Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, cashing in millions on the tragedies. Bowling for Columbine alone made more than $58 million in sales worldwide and Fahrenheit 9/11 bringing in over $222 million. Isn’t it hilarious that now Moore is getting a divorce, he’s in an ugly battle with his soon to be ex-wife over, you guessed it, money! Moore has been said to be worth over $50 million in assets including not one, but nine properties. Hardly sounds like he is poor, making him part of the despicable 1% that he loathes so much!
Hard to believe so many Americans fell for this slob’s diatribe that was clearly a lie he perpetrated upon them. Moore has been able to do what he has claimed is so contemptible in his movies, earn dough from other people’s misfortunes. A feat that could earn him the title of the “King of Capitalism”.
Moore and his progressive army like trying to pit the haves and the have-nots against each other. In the movie Capitalism: A Love Story he paints the people in the movie as hard working Americans. The movie starts out with people that didn’t pay their bills being evicted from their homes; villainizing individuals that have successful businesses that creates capitalism; that somehow free enterprise and competition in America are a bad thing.
The definition of Capitalsim is:”a way of organizing an economy so that the things that are used to make and transport products (such as land, oil, factories, ships, etc.) are owned by individual people and companies rather than by the government”. Being against capitalism makes you a Socialist, something the left adopts and nurtures in their delusional utopia.
Isn’t that part of the American dream though? Through free enterprise and competition, a person was able to make a living for his family and are the very legs that our nation stands on. It was built on the everyday rustics of the hard working American.
Adopting the notion that Americans need to spread the wealth around isn’t an idea of a free country and wasn’t what this nation was founded on. If a person works hard and is successful at his job and he gets rich, why is that wrong? Is it right that Moore, Obama, and the rest of the progressive “Legion of Doom”, demand that the money a person makes be taken and spread around to the have-nots? Punishing the rich because they are rich doesn’t make any sense. It’s not the right thing to do, it’s called stealing and last I checked that was illegal.
Hopefully in Moore’s divorce his wife got half of their assets, maybe then he will see how it feels to spread the wealth.
