Filmmaker Michael Moore pleaded for Americans to come together in support of the relocation of Syrian refugees into the United States, ending with the proclamation that “we are all Muslim.”
This was meant as a rebuke and rebuttal to Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s proposal to temporarily stop all Muslim immigration.
After a long, rambling account of his and Trump’s first meeting, where he claimed the real estate mogul was afraid Moore was going to pick on him during the taping of a TV show, the film director got to the point.
“Here we are in 2015, and, like many other angry white guys, you are frightened by a bogeyman who is out to get you. That boogeyman, in your mind, are all Muslims. Not just the ones who have killed, but ALL Muslims,” Moore wrote on his Facebook page.
“Fortunately, Donald, you and your supporters are no longer what America actually is today,” he said. “We are not a country of angry white guys.
“If you don’t like living by these American rules, then you need to go to the time-out room in any one of your towers, sit there, and think about what you’ve said. Leave the rest of us alone so that we can elect a real president who is both compassionate and strong.”
Then Moore defined what he referred to as those “American values.”
“I was raised to believe that we are all each other’s brother and sister, regardless of race, color or creed. That means if you want to ban all Muslims, you are first going to have to ban me and everyone else,” he wrote.
“We are all Muslim. Just as we are all Mexican, we are all Catholic and Jewish and white and black and every shade in between. We are all children of God (or nature, or whatever you believe in), part of the human family, and nothing you can say or do can change that fact one iota.”
Moore is very selective in what he calls “American values.” He’s a frequent and outspoken critic of the Second Amendment, yet now he supports the idea of unfettered immigration. Try to find that “American value” in the Constitution.
Moore also claimed to have protested outside one of Trump’s buildings, and offered his photo as proof:
He didn’t say how long he’d been there. Probably only long enough to have his photo taken, then it was off to the burger joint for a double cheeseburger and large chocolate shake.
