Did Michael Moore INSULT This Religion In Recent Interview? He’s SICK!
Michael Moore, the self proclaimed champion of the little people, appeared on MSNBC with Joy Reid on AM Reid, and demonstrated why so many Americans cannot stand him. In his diatribe, not only did he repeat the tired accusations that Donald Trump is a sexual predator, he also claimed that white people who voted for Trump are racist.
‘White people, no matter how painful, have a responsibility to reject anybody who stands in front of a camera who spews racism. Who spews sexism, misogyny. Who brags about being a sexual predator. I don’t care what your race is, but especially if you’re white. Because that means that you belong to the race that’s been in power forever. This a country that was founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves. So you have a special responsibility as a white person to always object to anybody who uses racism, who spews this hatred.’
‘And do not call yourself a Christian if you are not willing, literally, to put your body in front of whoever is coming to hurt the other — the people who are not you.’
Those who are unwilling to put their own bodies, with all the privilege and rights to justice that those bodies carry, in front of the ones who have been dehumanized and disenfranchised by the empowerment of white hate throughout history, but with renewed vigor in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, are complicit with those who commit those acts. That isn’t Christ-like. It isn’t acceptable, and it shouldn’t be to anyone, much less those who claim Christianity.
