Michael Moore is a clever propagandist because he mixes undeniable thoughts with unreasonable conclusions in order to foment fear among the easily frightened.
“So, my fellow Americans, when the next terrorist attack happens – and it will happen, we all know that – and after the tragedy is over, amidst the death and destruction that might have been prevented, you will see Donald Trump acting quickly to blame everyone but himself,” Moore wrote. “He will suspend constitutional rights. He will round up anyone he deems a threat. He will declare war, and his Republican Congress will back him.”
Moore pointed to another former president, George W. Bush, who he claimed also did not take his security briefings seriously, which in turn led to the 9/11 attacks.
“On August 6, 2001, he was on a month-long vacation at his ranch in Texas,” Moore wrote of Bush. “That morning, the White House Counsel handed him his daily national security briefing. He glanced at it, set it aside and then went fishing for the rest of the day. The headline on the security briefing reads: BIN LADEN DETERMINED TO STRIKE INSIDE U.S. On the top page it tells how bin Laden will do this: with planes. George W. Bush didn’t leave the ranch to go back to work for the next four weeks. In the fifth week, bin Laden attacked the US with planes on September 11th.”
Moore concluded his piece by making sure his followers and Trump knew the blame would be squarely on the former reality show star if America is attacked during his presidency and he could have stopped it, but did not because he was decidedly uninformed.
“It was YOUR job to pay attention, to protect the country,” Moore wrote. “But you were too busy tweeting and defending Putin and appointing cabinet members to dismantle the government. You didn’t have time for the daily national security briefing. Don’t think we’re going to let you use a modern-day burning of the Reichstag as your excuse to eliminate our civil liberties and our democracy.”
Moore is essentially claiming that a Republican president receives specific intel but ignores it because he’s stupid (Bush) or careless (Trump). Mysteriously, a Democrat president (Obama) receives no such intelligence and thus remains blameless when terror attacks occur.
Moore ignores the simple fact that if there were no Muslims in the US that there would be no Muslim terrorists setting off bombs and using guns to kill people. He also ignores that it’s his hero Obama who wants more unvetted Muslims in the U.S.
Moore claims the Republican Congress will back Trump in suspending Constitutional rights and declaring war. Hell, it’s not clear that the GOP will support his tax cuts or infrastructure spending. Republican leaders McConnell and Ryan are not fans of Trump.
Reporting on ANYTHING Moore says is an example of a media pys op. He’s no expert on anything and there’s no reason anyone should care what he says. He spews drivel, not analysis.
Instead of sitting at his keyboard, he should be exercising. His fat will kill him faster than Donald Trump ever would.
