Michael Moore, the self-described anti-capitalism, far-left liberal, documentary film maker, said recently that Barack Obama will be remembered in history as being the first black President of the United States. That's it.
Moore, speaking in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, spoke as if addressing the President himself when he said “When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: ‘He was the first black president.’ OK. Not a bad accomplishment. But that’s it. That’s it, Mr. Obama.”
He went on with his conversation with President Obama: “A hundred years from now - he was the first black American that got elected president.’ And that’s it. Eight years of your life and that’s what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things — a few other things you could’ve done.”
Moore told the interviewer that Obama has been "a huge disappointment." It's not difficult to figure out why Moore is disappointed with Obama. The President hasn't rid the country of personally owned firearms, a personal dream of Moore's. Obama hasn't taken the troops out of Afghanistan soon enough.
He commented on Facebook last month about the fall of Mosul and Fallujah not because of the barbarians that are ISIS but because "the trillions of dollars we spent there could be used for our schools instead." His stated belief about 9/11 is that we should have done nothing.
Michael Moore isn't difficult to figure out. He's a typical, far-left, liberal hypocrite. Moore decries capitalism and the evils of wealth, even though he himself has a net worth of around $50 million. It seems so easy for uber wealthy liberals to condemn the rich even as they are members of the 1 percent themselves. And the average and lower income liberals see and hear it and applaud them for saying it - completely overlooking the obvious hypocrisy.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying Moore is wrong about Obama. I think unless history is changed (something Michelle Obama once said we need to do) Obama won't be remembered for much other than being black and a disastrous health care law. He may be remembered for his disastrous exits from Iraq and Afghanistan that allowed ISIS and other radical Islamic terrorists to create and maintain a large caliphate in the Middle East. But that remains to be seen.
Yeah - anyone who actually listens to Michael Moore would do themselves a great favor to educate themselves about the man. He might be right occasionally, as I think he is in this case, but mostly he's a liberal hypocrite. A rich one.
