‘They’re religious nuts, but we’ve got those here too’: Moore hits new low comparing US Christians to Taliban

With the Taliban back in the headlines, thanks to President Joe Biden’s disastrous failure to engineer a successful withdrawal from Afghanistan, the usual suspects on the unhinged political left are looking to distract from a catastrophe that will reverberate for decades.

Events on the ground in Kabul have overwhelmed the false narrative of the so-called “insurrection” that Democrats and their media mouthpieces have successfully exploited to smear all of those who support former President Donald J. Trump as dangerous extremists and they are desperate to refocus attention on Nancy Pelosi’s sham committee on the January 6th protests at the Capitol.

One liberal who is doing his part is filmmaker Michael Moore who is comparing conservative Christians to the radical Islamic savages who have taken control of Kabul and have dominated media coverage this week.

Moore took to Twitter where he posted an image of Taliban fighters along with several of the more flamboyant protesters from 1/6 including “QAnon shaman” Jake Angeli in his buffalo hat costume, writing “Their Taliban, our Taliban, everybody’s got a Taliban. They’re at their best when they confiscate the halls of power.”

That the morbidly obese leftist gadfly actually self-owned his own gargantuan ego by inadvertently drawing the distinction between a real “armed insurrection” and a “mostly peaceful” protest was likely never considered, the larger point that he is trying to make is that Christian conservatives in the U.S. are the equivalent of the primitive religious extremist regime that is currently holding thousands of Americans hostage.

Moore also sought to make the comparison in an interview with the entertainment gossip website Variety in which he praised Biden’s handling of Afghanistan but admitted that handing over control of the war-torn country to the Islamic extremists would result in a huge setback for women’s rights while likening them to religious conservatives.

“They’re religious nuts, but we’ve got those here too,” he said. “But they said yesterday in their press conference that girls’ schools are going to remain open. OK. We’ll see. They also said they are going to operate under Islamic law. That’s exactly how a lot of Southern Baptists want it to be here too.”

He added, “In a lot of parts of the country, we are following dictates of conservative Christians. It’s wrong there and it’s wrong here.”

Moore, who last year compared Trump to the fiendish terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden is struggling to be relevant now that the days when his agitprop films including “Roger And Me,” “Sicko” and “Bowling For Columbine,” a film in which he stalked an aging Charlton Heston whom he blamed for the infamous 1999 massacre at a Colorado high school, won critical acclaim.

After snagging a gold statue for best documentary at the 2002 Oscars, Moore’s anti-Bush “Fahrenheit 9/11” which was released two years later catapulted him into the upper stratosphere of leftist media personalities but it has all been downhill from there for the disheveled director. His attempted 2018 follow-up with the Trump-bashing “Fahrenheit 11/9” bombed badly and he has been relegated to hysterically bleating like a stuck pig on Twitter ever since.

Moore isn’t the only one trying to liken the Taliban to Trump supporters and conservative Christians, MSNBC’s “race lady” Joy Reid also made the comparison, tossing in a reference to Hulu’s dystopian series “The Handmaid’s Tale” which has fueled the left’s delusional paranoia of the last several years.

No matter how much that Moore and his fellow travelers try to spin it, Biden has ushered in an era of repression in Afghanistan where women will be treated worse than dogs under the rule of the Taliban. There is no comparison between them and domestic Christian conservatives but the “Big Lie” is the coin of the realm for Democrats and their far-left media operatives.
