Michael Moore is a Moron and a Capitalist Pig

So, how do you justify making a movie about the evils of capitalism, when the movie industry in which you work, is fueled by capitalism? His movie is a capitalist product, meant to make money, in the capitalist system. The theaters showing his movies were built by capitalism, as were the cars people will be driving to the theaters, as was the means of production of the film, distribution, advertising, marketing. What about the evil capitalist TV shows he appeared on to plug his movies? What about the millions of dollars he will make from this film? What about the dirty socialist clothes on his back? I could go on at length about the walking contradiction that is Michael Moore, but I'll let him speak for himself. From CNS News:

Documentary film director Michael Moore, who has become a millionaire thanks to the profits from his movies, told CNSNews.com that “capitalism did nothing” for him.

CNSNews.com spoke with Moore on the red carpet at the Uptown Theatre in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday night before the premiere of his upcoming documentary, “Capitalism: A Love Story."

CNSNews.com asked: “Critics may say, when they see this movie, Michael Moore has amassed a fortune of over $50 million, some have said and –”

Moore said: “Really? Are you kidding me? Seriously? Wow. Where did it go?”

CNSNews.com then asked Moore: “Critics would say he’s [Moore] been very successful under a capitalist system. How would you justify making a movie where you paint capitalism as evil?”

Moore said: “Well, capitalism did nothing for me, starting with my first film.”
Really?

According to Fortune Magazine, Moore’s films have grossed over $300 million worldwide. His highest grossing film was “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which critiques the Bush administration’s handling of the war in Iraq and earned over $200 million worldwide.

Moore reportedly was paid $21 million by Disney for producing, directing and creating the film.

Moore also earned 50 percent of the profits of his 2007 film “Sicko,” totaling $25 million plus DVD sales, according to Vanity Fair.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Moore would receive all of the profits made from DVD sales of “Sicko,” sales of which have been estimated at over $17 million.

“Look, you know, I mean, I make documentary films,” said Moore. “So, clearly, I’m not loaded in the way you described. But I do well, obviously because my films do well.”
Poor little documentary film maker, living on peanuts (and boxes of Twinkies), wanting nothing but to show the truth.
