Michael Moore warns white men will soon become a minority, wants them to 'make amends' for the Trump era
Filmmaker Michael Moore wants white men to "make amends" for the current administration as he claims they are responsible for the rise of President Donald J Trump.
The left-wing firebrand, who directed 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and 'Bowling for Columbine', railed against conservative white males near the end of his podcast 'Rumble with Michael Moore' on Thursday
“Men, especially white men have a big responsibility to make amends for the Trump era,” Moore said. “Those amends will happen. People will see the error of their ways.”
It's important to note that Trump won 52 percent of white women votes and 52 percent of the male vote overall in the 2016 election, Breitbart reports.
That said, Moore also claimed the days of white males being the dominant demographic in the US are coming to an end. “They will be the minority. They’re already the minority," he insisted.
During his meandering podcast, the Academy-Award winning director also threatened to have certain members of the US Supreme Court removed if they ruled against abortion.
“It will have taken years to get some of these people off the Supreme Court. Some may need to be impeached,” he said.
The filmmaker also mourned the demise of Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign, before railing against Democrats who attacked the socialist candidate. “Shame on all of you who would say those things about this individual,” Moore said, before offering words of consolation to Bernie's supporters. “Don’t despair about this. Bernie has laid the groundwork for this movement, for a better life, a better country, a better planet," he asserted.
Last month, Moore suggested Trump was more dangerous than the new deadly coronavirus because he was creating a "false ignorance" by spreading misinformation. He made the statement while talking to MSNBC anchor Brian Williams.
"If you have the president telling people it's a hoax -- that there's nothing to worry about, that it will disappear as he said yesterday, and it'll be a miracle ... which is more dangerous? The virus or a president who says that," the filmmaker said. "Because at least if we were honest and knew everything about the virus, and the facts were all out there, science could start to deal with it."
The left-wing activist argued that Trump's statement was "the most dangerous thing I've ever heard a president say in my lifetime."
However, he claimed that the president deemed the virus a 'hoax' were widely debunked after it emerged he had used the term at a recent campaign rally in North Charleston, South Carolina on Friday to describe the Democrats' alleged efforts to politicize the coronavirus.
“The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus,” Trump said during the rally. “They’re politicizing it. One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia.’ That did not work out too well. They could not do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. This is their new hoax."
Trump later clarified that his use of the word referred to “the action [Democrats] tried to take to try to pin this on somebody because we’ve done such a good job."
“The hoax is on them. I’m not talking about what’s happening here,” he added, also saying “I don’t like it when they are criticizing [federal health officials], and that’s the hoax.”
