If there is one thing I despise most about liberal progressive socialists, it’s their hypocrisy. It is their sense of duplicitous elitism that points fingers at, “you rich white Republicans” but never answers for all the affluent liberals who are busy writing out checks to the Fundraiser-in-Chief.
The height of hypocrisy emanates from the Party of the political, entertainment, and media politburo whose members believe they know what is best for all us “little people” — yet they are constantly able to perpetuate the incessant lie of caring — and achieve economic enslavement.
And here is the latest Exhibit A, filmmaker Michael Moore, who apparently never met a plate of chow he didn’t like. Apparently Moore is in the midst of divorce, the details of which he’d like to keep secret because attacking capitalism has apparently made him ridiculously wealthy.
According to divorce records obtained by The Detroit News and reported by United Liberty, The filmmaker, 60, who split his time between a home here and one in New York, is leaving his wife of 22 years, Kathy Glynn. […] By reaching a settlement, Moore avoids a trial that could have aired dirty laundry common in high-proile breakups and impugned his long-hewn image as a common man by disclosing details of his comfortable life. His hit movies and best-selling books have begat a lifestyle far from most ballcap-wearing, duck-waddling denizens of Flint. Moore and Glynn own nine properties in Michigan and New York, including a Manhattan condo that once was three apartments. CelebrityNetWorth.com pegs their wealth at $50 million. In legal pleadings, Moore blames his wife for the expansion of the 10,000-square-foot home on Torch Lake, which has a value of $2 million.”
So let me just repeat that: the fat fella who hates capitalism owns nine properties including a Manhattan condo, a 10,000 square foot home on a lake valued at $2 million, and has a net worth upwards of $50 million. So I guess making (lousy) film and having people pay to view these films is ok as long as it benefits him personally?
I suppose that aspect of personal free market capitalism is acceptable, because he has the noble goal of bashing that personal free market capitalism. However, economic policies that enable someone to invest, or find a capital equity investor, to enable them to advance an idea, innovate, use their American ingenuity resulting in their building a successful and profitable business that hires other Americans — and potentially leads to offshoot businesses — that is BAD!
It’s this selective policy agenda that makes these socialists so despicable.
I find it laughable that these folks call themselves “liberals.” They have nothing at all in common with the father of liberalism, John Locke. As in all things progressive socialist, they redefine the lexicon and take claim to titles that do not reflect who they truly are.
Today’s conservatives are the true “classical liberals” who believe in Locke’s trifecta of personal rights life, liberty, and property. It was Thomas Jefferson who refined the unalienable rights from the Creator of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (property). I find it amazing that this pursuit of happiness is not acceptable for these post-modern liberals — progressive socialists –unless it meets their approval.
When Michael Moore and his ilk are attacking rich people they’re attacking those who worked hard and earned their keep but don’t maintain a like-minded political philosophy. That sentiment was reflected in Barack Hussein Obama’s “you didn’t build that.” It’s a belief that everything emanates from the government, so if it weren’t for government, you wouldn’t have an existence. But the fault of that logic is that it is the earnings of the individual that enable government to exist and build roads. These people simply don’t understand the premise of the social contract.
Moore and his like-minded progressive socialist elites become the adjudicators of what is acceptable wealth. They in truth believe themselves to be the grantors and takers of individual rights — as the rules for them are different.
Michael Moore is disgusting — physically, morally, and ethically. Yet in an America where the liberal media and the useful idiots elevate such a creative dunce, he becomes a wealthy — and in turn attacks the very system which enables him to garner wealth.
That is America and its free market economic system. Lucky for you Mr. Moore, there’s a sucker born every minute who will buy your foolishness. But be careful about biting the hand that feeds you — and based upon your girth, has fed you well.
