Michael Moore, the leftist crockumentary filmmaker, activist, is a big fat stupid white man who, instead of making actual documentaries, is known for creating doctored films full of manipualted crock. Seriously, I don’t think he’s made a film yet where he didn’t edit, manipulate, splice, or otherwise lie openly to make whatever he filmed meet his preconceived radical leftist notions.
On his podcast Friday “Rumble Michael Moore” called for the total repeal of the Second Amendment out of the US Constitution’s Bill of Rights. He did this in response to the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
This is the man who spliced video and audio to make it appear that then NRA President Charlton Heston, said things like “they can take my guns from my cold dead hands” during a rally in Denver, Colorado not long after the now infamous mass school shooting that took place at the Columbine High School in his crockumentary Bowling For Columbine.
At the Denver NRA rally, that was organized long before the school shooting, Moore used video footage of Heston on stage speaking to a crowd, holding a musket, saying, “I have only five words for you: ‘from my cold, dead, hands.’” The film moves to a shot of a billboard advertising the NRA meeting, with Moore using somber tones saying, “Just ten days after the Columbine killings, despite the pleas of a community in mourning, Charlton Heston came to Denver and held a large pro-gun rally for the National Rifle Association.”
If you didn’t know any better, you would think the NRA was nothing but a bunch of heartless a-holes who didn’t care about the children who were shot.
And the whole thing was a lie. The speech that Moore used for that part of the film, which was in the opening, wasn’t given at the Denver rally. Heston said those words a year later in Charlotte, North Carolina. And the reason he said it had nothing to do with trying to send a threatening message to anyone. Heston was given a handmade musket, and he made the gesture out of gratitude for such a thoughtful gift.
The reality is, the NRA back then was a New York state non-profit entity. New York state corporate law says that the non-profits’ members must meet at least once a year to remain legal in New York. The NRA, like many other non-profits, makes an annual rally out of that meeting.
Here’s the important part of this point. The NRA schedules their meetings years in advance, which means the location, the date, and all the rest of it are negotiated with contracts signed years before the events take place.
Moore knew this, and he also had to know that New York law says that a non-profit cannot change the location or date of the annual meeting within a certain period of time close to the actual date they filed with the state. The Columbine school shooting took place within that time period, so the NRA could not cancel according to New York law.
What Heston, the man portrayed by the filthy liar, Moore, did instead, was he canceled every event, which was normally days of committee meetings, sporting events, dinners, and rallies. This news was reported on by the Rocky Mountain News Service:
“Under its bylaws and New York state law, the NRA must hold an annual meeting,” the Rocky Mountain News reported, adding, “President Charlton Heston and the group’s executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, said all seminars, workshops, luncheons, exhibits by gun makers and other vendors, and festivities are canceled.”
So, why did Moore go to the trouble of making a crockumentary film, making it appear the NRA rally was business as usual? Because he’s a radical leftist nut and like all radical leftist nuts, truth does not come into the equation when he’s trying to make a radical partisan point in one of his films.
Moore said, “I know that there are Democratic Party leaders that do not want me saying this we going to lose the election.”
He continued, “I make no apologies for it because I understand the history of this country, and I don’t think we should be afraid to say this. Repeal the Second Amendment. Repeal the Second Amendment.”
The great manipulator then added, “That is it. That is what we need to do. We need to start a movement to repeal the Second Amendment and replace it with something that says it’s not about the right of somebody to own a gun, the right of all of us to be protected from gun violence. We have a right to live.”
This stupid man doesn’t realize he already has the right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That means, that the government has a vested interest in protecting all three.
But the biggest reason Moore is a fool to make that statement is because people who defend the Second Amendment will say that they do because they have the right “to be protected from gun violence. We have a right to live.”
He ended with, “Nearly 70% of us do not own a firearm. We don’t own a gun. We are not a nation of gun owners. The 30% who do own a gun, most of them are law-abiding citizens. I don’t know what they think they are going to use that gun for. Those who are hunters, I understand that they like to hunt. Those who like to fire guns on shooting ranges, it’s fun to hit the target, great go for it, but we need to do what other countries do, where you store the gun at the gun club, at the gun range. You don’t want a gun in the house. If you’re afraid of somebody breaking in, get a dog. You don’t need a gun. You have a greater chance of harming yourself or others in your family with that gun in the house.”
There are so many lies in his statement he can probably use them all to create another crockumentary to exploit the deaths of school children the way he did after Columbine.
