I’m worried about Michael Moore—but not half as much as he worries about himself:
“[I]f I have any regret, it’s the – it’s what it put me and my family through as a result of the amount of hatred that was generated on a certain news channel and on AM hate radio. And they – they daily encouraged people to essentially commit acts of violence against me. It was – I mean, Glenn Beck famously said that he was thinking of killing me live on the air.”
I think there are – in the book, I document a half a dozen assaults on me, including a very significant one that resulted in a prison term for an individual who was, you know, planning to blow up my house.”
Well, prison would be a good place for him, then.
I wonder if prison wouldn’t be the right place for this guy, too:
Moore says, “The smart rich know they can only build the gate so high. And … history proves that people, when they’ve had enough, aren’t going to take it anymore. And much better to deal with it nonviolently now, through the political system, than what could possibly happen in the future, which nobody wants to see.”
How is that different from the mob wiseguy who says to the business owner, “Nice place ya got here—shame if somethin’ happened to it.”? It’s not, of course.
So Michael Moore, a defiantly controversial public figure, claims death threats against himself (without challenge or corroboration), while not so subtly threatening violence against people for the crime of being rich.
Does he have a new movie coming out? No? How else to explain his reckless, irresponsible behavior?
