Michael Moore: Americans Desire Guns Because They’re Racist

After the Sandy Hook shooting, Michael Moore was somehow able to tie the tragedy to what he believes is America’s inherent racism and awfulness.
What a pig.
The Daily Caller reported:

Friday night, on the heels of last week’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., the left-leaning Current TV is planning to air progressive filmmaker Michael Moore’s ten-year-old Columbine documentary “Bowling for Columbine,” with Moore revisiting the film to accuse American gun-owners of being motivated by racial fears.

Gun ownership, Moore said, “cuts down to the heart of our race problem that we still haven’t resolved.”

“I think we’re a very frightened people,” Moore said. “I think we’ve been frightened ever since we landed on these shores. We were frightened of the native people.; we were frightened of the slaves we brought over, as we should have been. And those in power have known how to manipulate us with fear. And we’ve started wars over being told lies about, you know — whether it was in the Spanish-American War, the Mexican-American War. You can go through so many of these wars we’ve been in throughout history — right up through the Iraq War — where we’re just lied to because those in power knew if they just put enough fear out there. And the best kind of fear is the one that has the kernel of truth, so you have 9/11 happened — that’s a real incident, nearly 3,000 people lose their lives. Very easy at that point to use that fact in a way to tell a fiction.”

But according to Moore, it’s that fear that causes Americans want to own gun, which he tied to race by explaining high levels of citizen gun ownership exist “in suburbs and rural areas.”

What absolute idiocy. It’s stunning that so many leftists worship this nut.

    No Michael, we’re scared of people like you …

    And that Commie Desires 4th & 5th Helpings @ the Golden Coral Because he’s a Discusting Fat Pig.

    Yes, Michael, you win. Gun owners are all scaredy over all sorts of things, to include greasy, overweight, and unhygenic butt-clowns who have mad themselves rich making a mockery of, not other people just like themselves, but of poor and middle class persons who have been deceived into thinking you are one of them, when in reality you are taking money from the rubes, while living in stylish apartments in the richest part of NYC.

    Which is to say we are scared of a lot of things, bloated and fat perverts are not on the list though.

    So far the people in leadership of Newtown have been shameful in serving up the grief stricken to media gore mongers out to push their agenda. …I suspect there are negotiations underway for the pending celebrity rock concert $250 ticket affair ” for the victims “…Whose it gonna be ?… Bonno ?…Mariah Carey ? Cee Lo Green ? ..

    Regular folks in the town are starting to speak up about the invasive media circus. The Newtown governance best anticipate Michael Moore wants to move in on this crime scene to film an exploitative snuff grade documentary on this bloodbath . Find a way to deny him access to the school and the victim families. Petition the mayor and have the police be on the lookout for black limos with tinted windows.

    I don’t think Michael Moore is frightened by snack cakes or sodas served in cups larger than 16 ounces.

    A False Ad About Assault Weapons

    [Machine Guns Still Illegal

    Contrary to what the ad clearly implies, any weapon that can fire 300
    rounds per minute remains illegal for civilians to own without specific
    clearance by the US Department of Justice.

    In fact, machine guns have been tightly regulated since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934, in the wake of the gangster era. Legal ownership of a machine gun requires an extensive federal background check, fingerprinting, signed clearance from the chief of local law enforcement (such as a county sheriff), a $200 excise tax, and weeks of paperwork. That was true before the assault-weapon ban was enacted in 1994, and it remains true with the expiration of the ban at midnight Sept. 13, 2004.

    That’s made clear in a question-and-answer document posted Sept.
    13 on the Web site of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives (ATF), explaining the effect of the expiration of the assault
    -weapon ban:

    ATF: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating
    to registration and transfer of machine guns . . . still apply.

    The fully automatic version of the AK47 — pictured and described
    in the ad — remains just as illegal as it was before the ban expired.]

    [Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts
    of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of
    violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the
    deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must
    not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.

    The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in
    the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the
    National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the
    murder could only be found in Cain’s heart.

    In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how
    quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not
    a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am
    not here to represent or defend the NRA – because I don’t believe that
    they are responsible for my daughter’s death. Therefore I do not believe
    that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with
    Rachel’s murder I would be their strongest opponent.

    I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy — it was
    a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame
    lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind
    the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four
    nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

    Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
    Your words are empty air.
    You’ve stripped away our heritage,
    You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
    Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
    And precious children die.
    You seek for answers everywhere,
    And ask the question “Why?”
    You regulate restrictive laws,
    Through legislative creed.
    And yet you fail to understand,
    That God is what we need!

    Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind,
    and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up,
    we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and
    wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational
    systems for most of our nation’s history. Many of our major colleges
    began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has
    happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so
    doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something
    as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs — politicians immediately look
    for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more
    restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private
    liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would
    not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can
    stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The
    real villain lies within our own hearts.

    As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two
    friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school.
    I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young
    person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999,
    at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not
    let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move
    into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates
    your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would
    point your finger at the NRA — I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to
    examine your own heart before casting the first stone!

    My daughter’s death will not be in vain! The young
    people of this country will not allow that to happen!”

    Frightened of the native population? You mean the ones who formed raiding parties, burned down cabins, hacked up settlers and stole children? That stuff was going on the very moment white people landed in North America. They were no threat to the natives, but the natives attacked.

    Anyone who goes out on a frontier without a gun is an idiot.

    While chatting w/ my “black” police chief a few years ago here in Farmerville, I commented that I no longer had a hand gun in my home since I divorced. He went into a bit of a rage & insisted I go get one ASAP! Wonder if Michael thinks my police chief is racist?

    what a fat slob, now that I dispense with the pleasantries, I’m sure his bodyguard is carrying a piece, what say you fat slob?
    These hollywood types are the biggest hypocrites, people in europe actually think michael moore is how america thinks, we dont.
    They think we have too many guns, if anything we need more guns, bigger guns. Sorry but that is what I think. I’m still more scare of the government than of my fellow americans, though there are alot of weirdos out there. But the government isnt taking care of the weirdos, why should the police and military be the only ones armed against these weirdos? Teachers need to armed themselves to protect the youngans, its the american way. In the military I always felt safe because everyone had guns.

    How the hell did Hostess ever go out of business?

  • Flintstone F.

    Would he last a week in the woods by himself?

    So I guess the Indian invented the Tomahawk after they saw the guns?

    I’m pretty sure the Powhatan were familiar with war and fighting long before the evil white man brought their muzzle loaders without trigger locks.
