Neo-Communist Left (Michael Moore) Debates Neo-Socialist Left (Bill Maher) on Real Time, Part 3

When was the last time you rooted for this guy to win a debate?

When was the last time you rooted for this guy to win a debate?

When leftist talk show host Bill Maher is the reasonable person in the debate you know the person he’s interviewing has to be WAY OUT THERE. For Maher’s interview with neo-communist filmmaker Michael Moore I’ve already addressed two key issues:

See Part 1 here in which I explain Moore’s Kitch Marxism.

See Part 2 here where I show how Moore’s tactic of renaming “communism” as “democracy” is something leftists have been doing for decades.

Now for our concluding segment it’s time to showcase Moore’s Freudian slip in which he reveals his true agenda:

Maher: But those people who are taking the one slice, they think they’re going to become the guy who takes the nine slices. So they’re greedy pricks also. They’re just greedy pricks without the real money.

Moore: First of all, yes. Greed is a part of human nature. There are certain things about us that we know are a little scary. Greed, violence, wanting to f*** anything in front of us. Yknow, I mean…

[Audience laughter]

We create certain structures and restrictions so we don’t act like that. And we behave ourselves. And capitalism is not a structure to contain the greed. It’s a structure to encourage the greed. And that’s what we have to stop. It’s greed run rampant right now. And I can’t believe I just said that about f***ing everything in front of us.

Maher: I wish I could talk to you all night. I hope your movie makes a zillion dollars. And you’re rich beyond your dreams.

Moore can’t believe he said that people want to “to f*** anything in front of us.” He was grasping for examples of bad things that people do and what did he reach into himself and pull out? “F*** anything in front of us.” That was the first thing that came to his mind after the common examples of greed and violence.

This delightful remark fits journalist Michael Kinsley’s definition of a gaffe: when a politician accidentally tells the truth.

Moore wants to “F*** anything in front” of him. He wants to see all the institutions that support American freedom obliterated. He wants to disassemble our economy. He routinely paints the police as racist oppressors. He presents the history of America Howard Zinn-style as one of endless exploitation.

He even wants American soldiers in Iraq to be killed by insurgents:

“The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation [i.e., against American, British and other coalition forces] are not ‘insurgents’ or ‘terrorists’ or ‘The Enemy,” said Moore. “They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow — and they will win.”

Such is the nature of the Left’s most prominent cultural hero and such is the nature of the Left itself. Dig deep enough and at the core you will find nihilism. One need not dig too deep to discover it within Moore.

    Sounds like Moore is projecting his gluttony onto the whole of the world.

    It is often those traits we dislike in ourselves we project onto others; then abhor them for being that way.

    To paraphrase Walt Kelly’s cartoon character Pogo: “We have met the enema and it is us.”

      By the way, when Maher is ranting…whew! What venom! Could be my imagination, but doesn’t it look like he IS getting an enema?

    Just trying to guage what two extreme left wing screw balls talking to each other really matters to real people. Did Moore bring snacks?

      He planned to, but they disappeared along the way…
