American Asshat: Michael Moore

Nominee for Diogenes' 2011 Asshat of the Year 

Michael, Michael, Michael. 
It's rare indeed that I agree with you on anything. However, recently you did say something that did make me nod my head in agreement.  During a recent interview, you said the following:
"They're sitting on the money, they're using it for their own ….they're putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We've allowed them to take that. That's not theirs, that's a national resource, that's ours. We all have this -- we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it."

At first Michael, I scoffed at the notion. After all, as a conservative and an unrepentant capitalist pig, why would I support the collective ownership of wealth?  Then came the epiphany. You're absolutely right, Michael. The rich should share their wealth with everyone. And I can think of no better person to lead by example than, well, you.

Moore, just before the chair collapses
According to , your net worth is estimated to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $50 million. Granted, that's not Bill Gates kinda cash, but it's not too shabby for a self promoting asshole like yourself.  So, as one of the "common people" you so love to claim to represent, I believe I'm entitled to at least some of that nest egg.

For example, I have accumulated a few medical bills over the past few months. As the champion of the "little guy" in your film "Sicko" as you took on the health care system in America, I think it only fair for a rich guy like you to whip out the checkbook and pay them for me. I also have a little credit card debt. (that last trip to the Virgin Islands got a little outa hand, know what I'm sayin') As the champion of the "little guy" in your film "Capitalism: A Love Story” you took on big banks and Wall street and the way they are screwing us all. And today you had this to say: 
"America isn't broke. The money's just not in the people's hands. It's in the hands of the rich, the rich who committed these crimes back on Wall Street and they got away with it."
So I think you outa be more than willing to pay off my debt and get me out from under their thumb. Right?

More importantly, think of the good example you'd be setting for wealthy people of your political persuasion.

Babs Streisand Relaxing at Home
Why, I'm sure Barbara Streisand would be more than willing to hand over her...I mean our money to people like me. Afterall, she lives in disgusting opulence and is only going to keep it for herself, right? Ditto with Oprah, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and other celebrities who swing to the left. All they need is just someone to lead them.I believe that someone is you, Michael.

So, I propose we meet and hammer out the specifics of this arrangement. Let's say, a nice steakhouse in New York City maybe?  You can pay for me to fly out there, put me up in a really nice hotel and be kind enough to pick up the entire tab without so much as a second thought. 
After all, it's our money, right Michael?

But what really upset me today Michael, was your uncivil words and angry rhetoric I thought you and your leftist buddies so abhor these days:
"I just want to say, anybody who lives within driving distance of Madison, Wisc., right now should make their way to the capital. I would love to see thousands of people there right now, there in that capital building, in the rotunda, out on the lawn, whatever it takes. I mean, really, this is really, this is war. This is a class war that's been leveled against the working people of this country and at some point people are going to just have to stand up and say, non-violently, this is enough. We're not taking it anymore. ..." 
Your shameless opportunist call for more disruption of the  business of government in Madison Wisconsin shows a lack of understanding of the issues and the common asshattery prevalent in your kind of mentality.
And in my book, you will always be the premier pustule on the ass of the nation.

  1. Michael Moore epitomizes the hypocrisy of liberal/progressives. The liberal elitists such as Moore stand upon self righteous indignation when they have absolutely no skin in the game.

    Moore owns a very tony co-op in the heart of New York City's most expensive real estate. His children are educated at some of the most expensive private schools available. He lives a life of self indulgence, all the while generating class warfare rants ostensibly pitting the poor working class against the evil corporate billionaires. Interesting that Moore, up to this point in time at least, has never used union personnel in any of his movie production units.

    Those same billionaires that Moore denigrates are the one's that create jobs that can and do result in lifting people up the economic scale.

    Moore speaks as if billionaires hide all their wealth in their mattresses or some other such nonsense. People with money earned that wealth by putting their money at risk in entrepreneurial project investments that generate jobs and income for many people, while providing a return on investment for those entrepreneurs.

    Without money to invest there are no jobs to be created. There is a symbiotic relationship between those with money to invest and those with job skills to provide in the workplace. The difference today is that entrepreneurs can rely increasingly on technology than on employees in general. That's why continuing education is necessary for workers to stay current on the skills and abilities that are in demand in the job market of their choice.

    Yes, Moore is just another self righteous a$$hat of the left that believes he has greater nobility and virtue than anyone on his political right.
