Michael Moore Says He Is Not Part Of The 1%

From CNN’s Piers Mogan Tonight:

Moore: I’m not part of the one percent

October 25th, 2011

Piers: I need you to admit the bleeding of this, I need you to sit here and say, ‘I’m in the one percent’, because it’s important, because it diminishes your argument.

Moore: Well I can’t because I am not. Piers: You are. Moore: No, I’m not, I’m not.

Piers: You’re not in the one percent.

Moore: Of course I’m not, how could I be in the one percent?!

Piers: Because your worth millions. Moore: No, that’s not true. Listen, I do really well, but what’s the point though?

The point is, that it diminishes your argument, weren’t you listening? Like all the other liberals out there, is that you made a ton of money on the system you are railing against. The very war you opposed, is the very war you made millions of dollars of profit off of, and sued in court to get more! As a wise man once said, "The liberal socialist, is always the richest guy in the room."

Moore continued:

Even though I do well, I don’t associate myself with those who do well. I am devoting my life to those who have less.

The insinuation wasn’t whether you personally associate yourself with the super-wealthy, the insinuation was that YOU ARE SUPER-WEALTHY! –and he just ignored the question. In fact, Moore is unable to answer ANY of the questions Piers Morgan asks of him. No details, no numbers, no facts, just a whole lot of emotion and anecdotal story-telling. Piers lets him off the hook again and again, and even goes to commercial when Moore can’t answer. In keeping with the idea of ‘devoting his life to those who have less’, Moore sends his kids to private school. Has a million-dollar apartment in Manhattan and another house in Michigan, makes huge money from college speaking tours, makes millions from writing books, and from making movies with non-union labor.

    Considering Moore’s girth, he’s consumed more than 1%.

  2. Rusty Shackleford says:

    I’d like to think that sometime in the not-so-distant-past that the media wouldn’t have even noticed FatMike.

    I’m pretty sure he smells, doesn’t brush his teeth and he hasn’t seen his junk in many years. Except maybe in a mirror.

    But this is what you get with today’s “everybody’s important (unless you’re a republican)” mentality. A shlockmeister like him, peddling crap…and making millions…so now he’s forced to live a lie because, well, he created it.

    Not part of the 1%, FatMike? Well, I’d happily be part of the 1% if you don’t want it. I can make at least as crappy movies as you do, even without the basic, high-school AV club credentials that you have.

  3. River0 says:

    Only in America would someone be able to go so far with such meager talent, entitlement attitude, and gluttonous appearance. Compared with the rest of the world, Moore is in the top 1/2 percent.

    We should have a special tax in place for the Moores, Buffets, and Emmanuels in America.

  4. Papa Louie says:

    Anyone who makes over $380,354 is in the top one percent of American wage earners. That means Piers is also in the one percent. If Moore does not associate with those who do well, why is he associating with Piers? Whenever I see Moore, he is surrounded by the one percent, including politicians, media, and Hollywood. What a liar!

  5. JohnMG says:

    Maybe Fatso’s right–he isn’t part of the 1 percent, meaning he isn’t 1% smarter than the average media practitioner. I could believe tht.

  6. Mithrandir says:

    When I watched the entire interview on CNN t.v., I was impressed that such a talentless buffoon could get applause from a studio audience while contributing less than nothing at all.

    When you watch political interviews, there are tons of tricks the interviewer or the interviewee do to avoid saying anything that would be contradictory, hypocritical, or anything of substance in which they could be proven wrong. Many were in this beyond-ridiculous segment, in which an ignorant and fabulously wealthy socialist can pretend he is both knowledgeable and one of the poor people.

    1. Crosstalk when neither wants to answer the question.
    2. Get people to strongly support your outrage, and they will ignore your ignorance on solutions.
    3. Argue about the little things to distract from the big issues.
    4. When not wanting to answer the question, say (like Anthony Weiner did) “The REAL question people are asking is….”
    5. Cut to commercial like Piers Morgan did, and then not follow up on the original question.
    6. Allow interviewee to wander off on long-winded tangents and interesting stories so people forget what the original question was.
    7. Interviewee acts outraged at the question instead of answering the question.
    8. Interviewee answers question in a stupid way, pretending not to have understood the question, knowing the listeners probably didn’t understand the question either.

    I was ABSOLUTELY INSULTED watching this garbage. I felt like I needed to take a long shower….with Lysol. Whenever Moore is on, suddenly we are treated like naive 4th graders–and yet the adults in the room don’t seem to mind or notice. This reminds me of Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” in which we are all chained subjects watching a shadowy puppet show….and the media knows it.

    Michael Moore is a pathological liar and probably has a narcisitic personality disorder, anybody ever watch Manufacturing Dissent, a very interesting documentary. Michael Moore is the perfect example of how liberalism is a mental disease.
