"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:
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:
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:
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:
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:
Um, @realDonaldTrump -- It's now noontime in DC & it appears you are still squatting in our Oval Office. I gave u til this morning to leave.— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) February 14, 2017
What part of "vacate you Russian traitor" don't you understand? We can do this the easy way (you resign), or the hard way (impeachment).— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) February 14, 2017
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.
