Far left propagandist Michael Moore visited the Occupy Denver squatters camp yesterday. He gave his support to the enthusiastic crowd of anti-capitalists but he didn’t want to answer questions about his wealth. Ater the rally he held a book signing at the Tattered Cover’s Colfax location to promote his latest book.
A brother’s gotta eat!

The multi-millionaire lashed out at local reporter Evrod Cassimy for asking him about his personal wealth.
“You’re just punk media… You lie!”
CBS Denver reported:
When asked if he would acknowledge that he was rumored to be worth $50 million, and isn’t he part of the one percent, Moore replied, “I do very well.”
Cassimy: “How are you helping these people?”
Moore: “Because I do well, I want taxes raised on people who do well, including mine.”
Cassimy: “How are you helping these people with your $50 million?
Moore: “I don’t have $50 million.”
Cassimy: “That’s what it’s rumored you are worth.”
Moore: “Well, really. Is that what you do is sell rumors?”
Cassimy: “We’re asking you for the truth.”
Moore: “You’re just punk media is all you are. You lie. You lie to people. Stop lying to people. Stop lying.”
Cassimy: “Are you not part of the one percent?”
Moore: “Just don’t lie, okay?”
Then Moore was off to a local bookstore to promote his latest book. (Even anti-capitalists gotta make those greenbacks!)
