Michael Moore: This Is a Nation Founded on Genocide and Built on the Backs of Slaves (Video)

It’s interviews like this that make 1%er Michael Moore the most popular US director in Iran.

In an interview recorded by CSPAN Michael Moore told an audience that the United States was founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves.

Transcript via The Blaze:

“It’s not envy, it’s war, it is a class war, it’s a war that’s been perpetrated by the rich on to everyone else. The class war is one they started. The mistake they made to deal with the racial part of this, is, um, their boots have been on the necks of people of color since we began. This is a nation founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves, alright, so we started with a racial problem.”

Spoken like a devout Marxist.
Michael Moore forgot to mention that five states abolished slavery before the Constitution was even ratified. And within 100 years Republican President Abraham Lincoln abolished slavery altogether. It’s a good thing Moore never appears with true historians at his events. He would look even more foolish than he does when he berates the 1%ers.

    Blacks should take Moore at his word and target him. He is a very wealthy man. He exploited you guys. His fortune is built on your backs. Get yours.

  • succotash

    Moore is a national disgrace and should be living in a country that agrees with him.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Damn. For a few minutes there, the comments were at ZERO.

    I was hoping that this would remain the case, that a GP post about this slob would garner ZERO comments, in perpetuity.

    Because, in a perfect world, that is how it would be.

  • Aaron Z.

    The Indians were experts in genocide. Just ask the Anasazi. Oh, wait: You can’t, because they were entirely wiped out by their fellow Puebloan Indians.

    “The unearthed bones and artifacts indicate that when the violence took place, men, women and children were tortured, disemboweled, killed and often hacked to bits. In some cases, heads, hands and feet appear to have been removed as trophies for the killers. The attackers then removed belongings out of the structures and set the roofs on fire.”


    Read Inga Clendinnen’s Aztec: An Interpretation if you want to hear of the most sickening, inhuman, mass savagery practiced by Native Americans on other Native Americans all over the Americas.

    Most Native Americans in the U.S. died from diseases that the white colonists brought with them. It wasn’t a systematic genocide, the way the Aztecs and Incas practiced on their neighbors.

    And we fought a civil war in part over slavery. This country was divided over the morality of slavery from the beginning. Michael Moore’s talking points are as superficial as he’s obese.

  • Adi

    Michael Moore is in fact, the new Mr. Creosote.


  • Adi


    I doubt Hamburger Moore is interested in actual history.

    The white guy did it. Canada, USA, Latin America… and by GOLLY isn’t Moore such an epitome of white guilt? (And yes, it shows.)

  • ObjectionSustained

    And I guess the atoning blood of those 500,000 who died in the Civil War that led to abolition are not to be counted in this country’s commitment to the concept that “all men are created equal…”

    The Scourge Of Slavery

    [The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa

    To all you Internet Muslims and LIED TO and confused African-Americans
    who like to bring up the USA’s African slave hx (hx = history), I say this:
    Compare the USA’s short Colonial slave hx to that of the hx of Arabs
    (Islamic and Pre-Islamic) who colonized North and East Africa, who hunted,
    enslaved, tortured and killed Ethnic Africans for several thousands of years
    before the same geographical ARABS started/opened the slave trade to
    Colonial America who merely (in comparison) bought slaves for servitude.

    M.E. Arabs have a history of thousands of years of human slavery,
    which even continues today in the M.E.’s “MODERN WORLD.”

    thanks, hadn’t seen the first link you posted before now…


  • Tyranny’s Bain

    Was Canada founded on Genocide or built on the backs of slaves?

    The reason I ask is, I believe, Moore was born in Canada. If America is so horrible, he can take his larda$$ back to the Great White North. I hear it is a socialist utopia complete with Orwellian hate speech codes, so the free speech he enjoys here in the USA, would most certainly be censored in the land of his birth.

    Out of America:

    [E.G. Long: “Africa is a painful reality. Over the past 21 years, I have lived
    and worked in five African countries: Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zaire and
    Nigeria. ..There is nothing in Richburg’s book that I could contradict. I too,
    experienced the horror, and hopelessnesss of that continent. I read ‘Out
    of America’ in one sitting… “

    Steve Wishnevsky: “This is the voice missing from the current race
    ‘dialogue.’ Mr. Richburg is a courageous writer and clear observer…

    His is an authentic voice and should be listened to closely. America
    is the only land where the descendants of Africans have anything
    approaching freedom and economic opportunity.”

    H. Luther: “So much of what you hear about Africa lately is from people
    who have never been there. People who want to romanticize what is in
    fact chaos and disaster… Richburg has written what he has seen, he
    has presented reality with great integrity. It is a must read.”

  • ogee

    He is an unkempt huge glutton. His appearance says it all.

    Slaves did not build this country. You can tell he is a product of the public school system.

    I hope he eats himself to death the stupid pig. He is a multimillionare off the backs of all people.

  • Adi


    I expected some Chuck Norris jokes on a previous topic, but I’ll lunch my own Michael Moore fun here:

    There are no slaves in America, Michael Moore eat them all.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    This is a nation founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves, alright, so we started with a racial problem.

    He’s not obligated to stay here if he hates this place that much.

  • I have often felt the same way that Chubbs Moore does. Why do we build stuff on the backs of slaves? Granite is much sturdier. Simply put, if you build on the back of a slave, or build on anyone at all for that matter, you should not be an architect. Because you’re bad at it.

    some mental gymnastics coming from a pea brain. interesting how he manages to make his activism more about working to end the Bush tax cuts rather than ponying up all that extra cash he makes and paying it to the government. countering lump of lards is a 24/7 job.

    I stongly recommend not posting, period! People who remark in blog comment sections are the most qualified to determine what should or shouldn’t be posted. Jim, how can you ignore those of us who can boast of PhD’s in Awesome and Camcorder Journalism? We could start our own more popular blog, but humility prevents us from doing so. Our criticism is meant to be taken in the most constructive sense possible due to our stated superior intellect and beauty(and I’m being totally humble with respect to beauty).

  • Justin

    Michael Moore, founded on the genocide of cattle and poultry, build on the back of Burger King.

  • squeaky

    maybe we have to discuss the likes of michael moore because paul harvey and his “rest of the story” isn’t with us any more. in making a case for something, everyone sometimes omits
    those inconvenient things that does more to deep six their “fact” than make it.

  • RedBeard

    There is one type of person more despicable and less intelligent than Fat Boy Moore, and that would be the TV people who think he’s such a grand pundit that they give him air time to spew his ignorance and hate.

    Moore would be making his living changing oil at a Jiffy Lube if it were not for the idiot leftists who interview him, pay to see his crappy films, and have turned him into a public figure.

    I wonder if any of Moore’s cloying and adoring supporters even begin to recognize the entirely concocted and false “working man” facade he puts up. I mean, really, the obvious costuming, complete with the silly signature ball cap, is so blatant that I would think even the most dense person could see through it. But I guess I’m wrong. Some folks are stupider than I ever thought possible.

  • alsj

    This spoken to a people that he considers stupid. He’s a waste of skin.

  • Militant Conservative

    The “they” he talks about just insert democrats

    And Moore is correct.

    Question for Michael Moore: what race? We’re all homo sapiens sapiens… Well.. yes, just some are not as sapient as others. Mikey for example. His sapience has long since left him.

  • 1/4 Indian

    RE#6. Aaron, you are entirely correct. The strongest American Tribes always pushed aside or murdered the weaker Tribes to gain access to resources. This has been accepted as a function of Indian Culture. Well, when the White Man showed up, he was the stronger Tribe and he participated fully in the honored American Indian Tradition of destroying your competitors and taking the best land and resources. However, due to intense and institutionalized Racial Discrimination against Caucasians, Caucasians were deemed unsuitable to participate in this system. And their children continue to suffer to this day the Institutionalized Racial Discrimination that is reserved to that single Race.

    thank you.. iv’e watched a lot about that stuff via pbs..

    and while searching for info re: Inga Clendinnen’s
    , i stumbled upon the following little tidbit..

    Imperial city of the Aztecs: Mexico-Tenochtitlan

    [This account can no more than skim the surface of a remarkable experiment in urban living, an experiment that falls quite outside our assumptions and our experience. Cities are as complex and various as the humans who inhabit them, and every close study rebukes our parochialism. Confronted by the complicated actuality of Tenochtitlan, we are reminded of how implausible it is to dream of imposed conformity. ]

    Think of it like a marathon…all humans/tribes/races had an equal start (pick your point in time when you think humans started). The fact that Caucasians have outrun everyone else is not racism, it’s just reality.

    Bigotry against whites is founded in this realization.

  • Vercingetorix

    BTW, it was also written into the constitution of the Old Northwest Territory (containing future states Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and part of Minnesota) that slavery was forever outlawed there. The republican party, founded to abolish slavery, was created in Wisconsin.

    The US was the second country in the world to outlaw the african slave trade, and to enforce it with military force, after Britain.

    The abolition movement began in and was based in the UK and the US, and founded by christians, and their arguments were based on biblical teachings.

    Prior to the abolition movement slavery was an accepted world-wide practice, engaged in by many european countries, including Denmark, from whom we aquired the Virgin Islands.

    Countries like Brazil, Belgium (Congo), Australia (blackbirders), and Russia (serfs) engaged in legal, quasi-legal, or virtual slavery well after the US Civil War. And of course I haven’t mentioned the slavery, some ongoing, in Africa itself.

  • Fat Eddy

    It was those nasty Europeans that sold the slaves to the US.
    And what empire did not have slaves? (not saying it is the right thing).
    And the Muslims use to raid central Africa all the time for slaves.

  • BurmaShave

    Michael Moore starts form a point of pure and simple hatred for this country. He then cooks up reasons for his hatred.

    It is obvious that he hates this country, his own country, though he may lie and deny that, as so many Liberals do. It seems that he is in some of the more advanced stages of self-loathing and guilt for which Liberals are famous.

    Certainly Liberalism is a sickness. There needs to be a better explanation for the pathology of Liberalism. Liberalism is wreaking our country pretty much like AIDS, herpes, etc.

  • Slave states were the poorest, while the free industrialized North was wealthy. So no, slavery did not build America, industry did.

  • Wil

    What an idiot. The meme that this nation was build on the back of blacks does not hold up because of several reasons, one of which is this. Americans in the 19th and early 20th century had a mistaken impression that most blacks were ignorant, untrustworthy and unreliable. With a very few exceptions, black americans were shut out of mainstream America during that time period. Those exceptions had to prove, day in and day out, that they are capable of working besides white Americans in an equal basis. The ones who shouldered the load are the immigrants out of Ellis Island and San Francisco and white Americans, poor and middle class who mined, worked, fished,dig, sweat and died building the nation that is today.

    England was sending it’s prisoners to the US as slaves until the black trade started. They had a lot of prisoners and didn’t want to build more prisons. After the black slave trade started, England began sending it’s prisoners to Australia.

    What Moore said is what is being taught to kids in public school. His view is now the majority view of Americans under 30.

    If we don’t take the schools back from the Marxists, nothing else will matter.
