MSNBC resurrects Michael Moore

MSNBC resurrects Michael Moore

One of the faces that had mercifully disappeared from the small screen (and the big screen) is radical left-wing propaganda producer Michael Moore.  His portly body usually appears in rumpled blue jeans and t-shirts with a baseball cap covering his usually unkempt hair. It is stagecraft consistent with his claim of representing the “little guy.”  Moore is worth more than $30 million dollars.  The outfit is nothing less than haberdashery hypocrisy.

I had not realized how long he had been away from frequent appearances on left-wing networks until he re-appeared this week on several MSNBC programs.

There are two things about Moore that have not changed.  He spews left-wing cliches and talking points like a wind-up doll, and he does not deal with reality.  

In his appearance on MSNBC’s primetime “Beat” show with Ari Melber, Moore predicted that the Democrats would have a big win in Tuesday’s Midterm Election.  His initial statements were unequivocalable.  When asked about Senate races, Moore assuredly predicted victory for every Democrat.  He claimed that Democrats would win because the voters were smart.    Listening to Moore, you would expect to see a blue wave.

In later appearances, Moore qualified his predictions a smidgeon — but still sees a big win for Democrats.  He added an “if” – if Democrat voters turn out.

Moore bases his prognostications on the fact that there are more registered Democrats than there are registered Republicans.  If they all turn out, the Democrats cannot lose, according to Moore.

In revealing the basis for his claim, Moore proves himself as an ignorant fool.  

His biggest mistake is not seeming to realize that the largest voting block are the independents.  They more than the Rs or the Ds will determine the outcomes of elections.  They generally favor Republicans – this time more than ever, according to the polls.

Moore also seems to have a simplistic view that all registered voters cast all their ballots for the hometown candidates.  Moore apparently does not remember the so-called “Reagan Democrats.”  Trump attracted a significant number of cross-over Democrats – just as Biden benefited from cross-over Republicans.  Moore has a childish view of reality when it comes to political dynamics.

Moore also claims that Republican victories in a country with more registered Democrats are because of gerrymandering.  Partisan redistricting – gerrymandering … is a game played by both parties.  Check out New York, California, and Illinois, to name a few.

Redistricting is not the reason for Republican victories across the nation.  It all depends on how the independents break – and how many Democrats voters will defect.  As long as independents are the largest block of voters, neither the Democrats nor the Republicans can win on their base alone.

Melber invited Moore to return after the election to see how his predictions worked out.  I would love to see it, but I am not convinced Moore will show up for his dinner of crow.

So, there ‘tis.

    “As long as independents are the largest block of voters, neither the Democrats nor the Republicans can win on their base alone.” Thankyou Larry for this statement which I have been preaching on your blogs for the past year! Nice to see you finally say it. As far as Moore, I hope he fades again for a decade or more. He is repulsive to most of us Independents / unaffiliated. I do believe GOP would have gained more seats had McCarthy not blabbed so much about investigations and had Trump just kept his mouth shut. Both men were spewing comments on election denial, anti-Ukraine, and impeachments that Independents / unaffiliated do not like to hear. SO I am sure that Independents on the fence cringed and broke Dem, whereas had these two men just shut their mouths and talked about how to get government working again they would have gotten more votes. We stand for government working for the people and getting things done. We have silently observed how little gets done and how much distraction is created by all of these investigations. Moving forward, if the GOP wins the legislature, in order to get more Independent votes, they will have to: 1) Show fiscal responsibility while avoiding government shutdowns, 2) Continue to support Ukraine, 3) Fund police training and border agencies more, 4) Develop a reasonable stance on abortion, 5) More inclusiveness in candidates in 2024, and lastly, ditch the election denial crap and raise their game on what they can do for We The People. Otherwise we will punish them with our vote. Again, many thanks for acknowledging our large voting block!

    Mitch rhymes with bitch and this boy needs to be slapped, metaphorically of course, not literally.

    Sir, Mr. Moore is in better shape than the fat-ass orangutang burger-flinging fatso you adore. Much better shape.

    So, you have made it your mission to ferret out all gays so the pervert police can keep a head count because you’re afraid your kids may be “turned” and therefore the gays must be segregated from all kids.

    First, putting you in charge of the pervert police is like putting Hitler in charge of the Save the Jews foundation…..

    Second, what a lousy parent you are if you think your kids will turn gay just by being close to a gay person.

    Who else is one your list? Obviously the trans and crossdressers. But how about lesbians? Got a neighborhood watch for the girls too? Who else? Maybe the Muslims? There’s some real perverted Muslims out there terrorizing people. You got all Muslims all your watch? I bet you haven’t put the Russians there.

    How about guys who like to grab em by the pussy? Or is that OK for your kids?

    You have nothing to fear but fear itself. If you have raised your kids in your image, do you really expect them to be “turned?” Do you have that little faith in your kids upbringing? I mean if the gays can “turn em,” can’t any schlep turn them? Even a liberal….. TIme to go off the grid and lock them kids away if you can’t keep them on the path.

    Fear is favored by the frustrated.

        I hope everyone who voted for democrats lose everything that they worked for and die hungry. May they get the shits and have their arthritis draw their noses in their asses and they live many more years. May their mothers run out from under the porch and bite them. Amen.
