As I’ve recounted on this site previously, I once sat next to Michael Moore at a showing of one of his movies, “The Big One,” which rails against America’s corporations and their CEOS (kinda like his next movie will do).
When the movie was over, he asked me what I thought, and I asked him why he’d rail against CEOs, and yet he was wearing a Detroit Tigers hat and a Chicago Bulls shirt. I reminded him that sports teams are the corporations who most soak taxpayers for their stadiums, etc., and yet they provide mostly seasonal jobs which pay well below market value. Plus, their clothes, which he was wearing, are not made in America, but overseas by the people he complained are paid less than a dollar a day. Moore’s response was that he’s a hypocrite and not consistent, and he seemed proud of that. So, it’s no surprise that it’s more of the same, since he has hundreds of thousands of dollars in corporate stock holdings and he’s at it again, with yet another flick–this time, attacking Wall Street. Over the weekend, he unveiled this extremely obnoxious “trailer” for his next movie to movie audiences in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Yuck.
The untitled movie comes out in October. Gee, I wonder how Michael Moore bought and sold stocks without Wall Street. Oh, yeah, he didn’t avoid Wall Street. But, yet, they’re baaad, very bad.
The “Team America: World Police” guys had exactly the right idea with this self-righteous hypocrite.
