"We Have to Form an Army": Michael Moore Goes Full-Leftist (and Makes About As Much Sense)

"We Have to Form an Army": Michael Moore Goes Full-Leftist (and Makes About As Much Sense)

Will someone please check Michael Moore's blood sugar? We're slightly concerned.

On Wednesday, the notoriously (big) leftist film-maker made an appearance on The Late Night Show with Stephen Colbert, spewing all the rhetoric you'd expect him to.

From CNS News:

Far-left political activist and film-maker Michael Moore is about to debut on Broadway, in a show called “The Terms of My Surrender.”

On Wednesday night, Moore discussed the show with Stephen Colbert, who asked him – “What are the terms of Michael Moore’s surrender?”

“You have to come see the show,” Moore said.

As is typical with deluded lefties, old-man-disguised-as-older-woman Michael Moore wants to believe himself a warrior (for social justice) that won't compromise on his values, tenuous as they may be. So he drops this gemstone:

“I will tell you this. I will say this. I will say this. I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is president, and I’m not leaving. So something’s got to change.”
— Michael Moore, making perfect sense

What does that even mean? What exactly needs to change? You don't get to say something and just call it a day— either name a specific issue or position that needs to change or shut up. The statement makes about as much sense as "I refuse to go hungry, and I'm not eating."

But Moore just can't help himself. He then issues a thinly-veiled threat:

We have to form an army of citizens and come at him like a swarm of bees where’s it’s just that he’s getting hit one way, all the way.
— Michael Moore, threatening the President of the United States

The audience cheers at this— perhaps they will be his swarm. They're already halfway there as a hive-mind anyway.

But Moore catches himself and is smart enough to walk the threat back into safer territory:

And, frankly, I suggested a few months ago that we have an army of satire, because I think the way to bring him down is with satire. His thin skin, as you’ve pointed out so well, is so thin, all we need is like a thousand or a million little comedy shivs—just, you know, nonviolent, don’t hurt him—but under his skin, because he can’t take being laughed at.
— Michael Moore, in a display of metaphorical prowess

Yes... an army... of satire! With comedy shivs! Harmless to everyone except the thin-skinned, because President Trump will undoubtedly resign once his feelings are hurt enough, just, you know, nonviolent, don't hurt him.

If Moore thinks President Trump is doing a bad job already, then why 'bring him down' by getting under his skin? Why not suggest actual ways to address the perceived issues? This is precisely the kind of non-committal solution you'd expect from a guy that makes toothless ultimatums like this:

Also, what's an army of satire supposed to be? Is that like a whole bunch of really sarcastic people saying mean things? Has science figured out that satire can be a group of sentient beings? Someone please ask Moore if he smells burnt toast.
