All I am saying is that he was one of the few who predicted that Trump was
going to win, before he did...and he gave his reasons. Whether his reasons
were valid or pleasing or not, isn't the point I was making, he did something
most of the rest of us didn't do. He thought about it and said it...and was
proved right, gives him more street cred than a lot of other people.
Donald Trump is probably a nice chap, full of bonhomie, hugs and kisses and
looks after his family, wives and children very well. And he obviously wants to
do good for the American people, by saving their jobs and bringing more jobs
home. He wants to make America great again. He also wants people to understand
that if they are going to get fat and lazy, then they wont be able to depend on
the state for health care and sustenance. He is a firm believer in the social
Darwinist principle that that it is the survival of the fittest, meaning
strongest, and not the most flexible. And it isn't his fault that deregulating
industrial practices means that certain large corporations will use this to
remove safety rules, environment rules and building and fire safety practices.
He is also a great believer in using the law to protect himself and his
interests, having involved his lawyers in over 4000 cases, a number of which
included bankruptcies of various kinds, some of which he won and some of which
he lost. Other cases were fought and lost over building and planning
regulations with which his companies hadn't complied, many of which are still
outstanding. He has created a great deal of employment for slick lawyers and
whiz kids. He appears to want to be friendly with Putin and Russia, and wants
to try and establish better relations with a view to extending trade, such as
some of his Trump Towers in Moscow. He hasn't had the time yet to launch his
own war somewhere in the world, but is allowing the wars with which the US is
already involved to carry on and develop. Personally, I wouldn't know what he
is like, never having met him, so I cannot judge. I see that his press
secretary resigned today...obviously unhappy about the way he has been
treated... I went into Trump Tower once...I was very impressed with the

Michael Moore, like other Progressives, has always been seething with
irrational hatred fueled by uncritical inferences and strident, dogmatic
rhetoric. This wasn't troubling when he focused this hatred on individuals and
groups who openly espoused racism and anti-Constitution ideology. But, finally,
Moore's hatred turned upon the very people who (historically) made possible the
freedom and liberty he enjoys... freedom and liberty to dissemble.
Douglas Rankin wrote that Moore was 'prescient' regarding Trump's victory. I
can't see any prescience... only a kind of desperate and temporary
acknowledgment of what was actually going on (not what Moore and his fellow
travelers wanted to go on).
Like many others, Moore saw the amazingly huge crowds who were turning up
everywhere Trump went. He also saw the polls (formal and informal) indicating
support across the socioeconomic spectrum. Moore was that Trump was going to
win and got busy as a beaver shaping the rhetorical base that's currently
trying to smear Trump and undo the democratically-determined 2016 election.
Imagine that! Democrats working their collective asses off to undermine and
nullify the democratic process.
To this end, Moore wrote a splendid hate-filled screed informing his cult
followers to get ready for Trump, who he described as a "wretched, ignorant,
dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath".
It matters not at all that nothing in Trump's well-documented life supports
this unfounded claim. Merely saying it makes it true and rings the bells in the
bat-infested belfry of the Progressive collective.
Moore lists 5 reasons for Trump's then-pending success. All of them far more
wretched and ignorant than anything Trump has every proposed or done, making
Michael a better example of a 'dangerous part-time clown and full time
sociopath' than Trump. But that's how Alinsky indoctrinated, spoiled and
selfish Dr. Spock baby boomers in Moore's cohort tend to process their
Moore is a top-shelf filmmaker who, I've heard, made a careful study of Leni
Riefenstahl's films. Michael is also one of the best propagandists since
Goebbels. But he's also a fat, arrogant, wealthy white man... meaning he's in
the same class as the people he hates and blames for all the wrongs of the
world. He joins the strident racists who brazenly declare the necessity of
eliminating 'White People'... showing, again, a strange ignorance of genetic
reality. But Moore's audience applauds when the sign goes up telling them to do
so. Pavlov would be impressed!
Blood is beginning to flow in the streets of America. It's only beginning. The
chicken-killing dogs of the Progressive Democrats have gotten a taste of this
blood, and felt the excitement of the chase.
But there are more licensed hunters in America than in most armies of the
world. A huge majority of this group has gotten too accustomed to living in
genuine freedom... and most of them know what must be done to any dog that
starts to kill chickens.
Unfortunate, for sure. But in this case, it's understandable that the people
who voted for Trump are tending to adopt the ethical principle 'do unto others
what they intend to do to you, before they do it to you'. At this point, there
aren't any other options.
Here's the link to Michael's thing about Trump.
