As far-left film maker Michael Moore made guest appearances this past week, on two occasions he spread provably false information as he wrongly claimed that a Fox News poll found that 70 percent of Americans support raising the top marginal tax rate to 70 percent as advocated by New York Democratic Congresswoman and self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And, appearing on Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, he declared that he wished she could be the next Democratic presidential nominee.
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday, aired early Friday morning, left-wing film maker Michael Moore promised viewers that if he ever ran for president his first agenda item would be “outlawing billionaires.” Asked about socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushing for a 70% marginal tax rate for the wealthy, Moore endorsed the radical proposal.
Always logical left-wing director Michael Moore was so distraught about the government shutdown that he told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Thursday people should just abandon their duties to the government, including paying taxes. Moore went on to tell people not to "commit crimes" because the "FBI wasn't getting paid."
The Razzie Awards, given out annually for the “worst in cinema” of the year, may not be the first place you think of when you think of political bias. But the 2019 edition of the Golden Raspberry (“Razzies”) Awards took an obnoxious anti-Trump angle that extended to the First Lady. One nominee for Worst Actor: Donald Trump, for his appearances in two documentaries, right-winger Dinesh D’Souza’s Death of a Nation, and left-winger Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9. Two of the nominees for Worst Supporting Actress were former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway and First Lady Melania Trump (both for clips in Fahrenheit 11/9).
Democrats have readied themselves to take their majority in Congress, and their biggest Hollywood fans have started celebrating as if it was their Christmas and New Year’s all rolled into one.
It’s a little hard to judge popular culture in the Trump era, wherein content creators are judged solely on political impact -- are they offering enough “Resistance”? -- instead of the quality of their product. The Democratic gains in the midterms should make the Left happy about its political fortunes, excepting that every day Trump remains in office is intolerable. So from our conservative perspective, here are some of the Cultural Winners and Losers of 2018.
During Wednesday’s edition of The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell, guest host Ali Velshi engaged in a lengthy interview with far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. Velshi channeled his inner Hillary Clinton, referring to a large share of the American public as “angry, intolerant (and) hard to reconcile.” These comments present an eerie similarity to Hillary Clinton’s infamous dismissal of half of Trump supporters as “irredeemable” members of a “basket of deplorables.” Moore’s suggestion that the “quarter of the country” brought up by Velshi should be “shunned” also has a striking similarity to Clinton’s declaration that “you cannot be civil” with Republicans.
With the midterm elections less than a week away, the leftist media are ensuring that the screens of America are saturated in the same message: VOTE (for Democrats). And so NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers welcomed crazed conspiracy peddler Michael Moore on his Nov. 1 episode, reported Newsweek.
New York Times media reporter Jim Rutenberg tried to tar mainstream conservative figures as hateful inciters of violence in “There’s Money In Conspiracy, And Outlets Are After It." The online headline: “You Don’t Need to Go to the Dark Web to Find Hateful Conspiracy Theories.” The online version featured a prominent picture of Judge Jeanine Pirro underneath the "hateful" headline. Rutenberg also tried to make a link between Fox news and the Pittsburgh massacre.
If reality TV star Donald Trump can become president, why not solid gold Hollywood royalty? That’s what left-wing director and big, gassy hypocrite Michael Moore thinks. Lee Moran of Huffington Post reported on Oct. 16 that the filmmaker, during an interview on Good Morning Britain, confessed to hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that he may consider asking Tom Hanks to run for president -- ask him for the third time, that is.
Media personalities and journalists decry over-the-top comments from Donald Trump, but they tolerate them from liberals like director Michael Moore. Moore appeared on The View, Friday and dramatically warned that the United States might not make it to 2020. He declared Trump the “last president” of the United States. ABC donated 16 minutes and 5 seconds to the filmmaker.
Michael Moore’s anti-American polemics and bomb-throwing “journalism” are usually taken with a grain of salt. But in the era of Trump, the salt shaker is nowhere to be found. And his new movie, Fahrenheit 11/9, has a Rotten Tomato score that indicates that the conspiracy-peddling director has hit the sweet spot in terms of what the media wants.
