Micheal Moore is , of course, happy that Reagan voters are dying.
Yes this is just another one of those people who spout this kind of sick hatred daily but will be given a pardon because he is leftist and I will be told he was just kidding.
From the article, Moore's clarification...
"Don’t get me wrong. But, I’m just saying that the previous generations, which were willing to live under segregation, were willing to live with women making a third less than men, were willing to live with all this stuff. They wanted gays in the closet. Their way is over.”
I don't care WHAT he clarified he is happy people died who did him no wrong.
That is entirely false, Moore never stated in the article he was happy people died. Did you actually even read the article?
"“If you were 55 or 60 years old in 1980 when Reagan ran, you’re dead now,” said Moore. “They’re not alive. They left. And when they left, you know, things got better.”
eh, one could argue he did.
Gotta love his idea of "better" though. Weren't we adding jobs and beginning 25 years of prosperity under Reagan? Today is certainly not my idea of "better". lol
Only if you didn't read or ignored his clarification, which I posted above.
I read. it.
You are doing exactly what I said you would do. No Conservative could say anything even remotely like that no matter what the clarification without it being eternally pinned to him.
I'm beginning to wonder if YOU read it. Right after the quote it says, "Sensing perhaps a verbal misstep, Moore clarified his comments." Meaning, he realized what he said and thought he better backtrack a bit. As I said, one could argue he did indeed say exactly what he meant the FIRST time he said it, rather than when he decided he'd stepped in it, so he "clarified" it.
It's what they want.
They will be very happy in about 40 years when plainly all baby boomer conservatives will be gone and they can finish their erasure of the past and frame it to suit their needs.
And NO I don't have any data. You certainly don't need any to see what's happening.
I did read it, and nowhere in the article does it support the accusations against Moore.
“If you were 55 or 60 years old in 1980 when Reagan ran, you’re dead now,” said Moore. “They’re not alive. They left. And when they left, you know, things got better.”
I thought things only got better with Coke?
He said what he said and then tried to back pedal.
He is a hideous human being who preys on others and uses the capitalism he claims to work against to get fatter and fatter.
Seems you've got some personal issues with Moore, thus the biased OP.
I have some public hypocrisy issues with Moore.
He is a public hypocrite and just made a statement the reverse of would at the least get you banned here but apparently you agree with him..........
That would explain your biased view and the words you put in his mouth.
Nonsense, what he said would not get one banned. I never said I agree with him, but I can certainly see when someone else is creating threads with their own personal biased views and actions.
People dying is better if you are gay? Huh, not sure what to say to that.
Omg you people... I didn't say "Haha they burnt in a plane crash" they died of old age and votes don't work in Heaven.
And so their deaths no matter how it happened is better for homosexuals? I understood what you said, and think its very telling of you.
It's sad that we as a species are not immortal, but there are certain upsides. People don't change with age, they cement their beliefs. If those people were 100 years old and voted today, how many would vote for gay rights? None; the 60 year olds of Reagans era weren't known for voting equality. Sure not all, but the exceptions don't outweigh the rule.
One day we will all die, and our decendants will take over.
Did you even see what the hell I commented to? I commented on the comment about our economic situation, and mentioned that he was talking about our social situation.
Our economic system is better for gay people? I know exactly what you were commenting on.
"Gotta love his idea of "better" though. Weren't we adding jobs and beginning 25 years of prosperity under Reagan? Today is certainly not my idea of "better". lol"
I mean that while our economic situation is worse, our social is better for the groups he talked about.
Perhaps but then why go after Reagan at all? Why specifically mention Reagan? If all he was referring to was social conditions, he would not have mentioned a President by name, merely a decade or time frame. Like I said. He meant what he said the first time he said it. Then a light bulb went off in his brain that let him know it was not alright to publicly state you were glad people were dying off. So he changed it. There is no mention of social conditions at all until his "clarification".
Think that Michael Moore is bad, try O'Reilly, Trump and Limburger, talk about "The Three Stooges" reincarnated.....
No - the three stooges are Moore, "Limburger," and Trump.
My god , I can't believe Micheal Moore is even listened to by even the left ! He is an idiot!
I don't see what the big deal is? Those of the Reagan era that were up in age were more conservative most probably GOP, the inevitable process of death naturally eliminated this group. Of course, a more progressive population replacing them is desirable for me on the left and from Moore's perspective.
Moore is just reminding the rightwinger that the demographics are changing veering left, but over the last few years that has been no surprise to anyone, right?

I have been accused by some in HP of being a Trump apologist and defender...As I explained many times, I am a conservative and call it as I see it.I did not vote for Trump but I also defend him when I see the criticisms were unfair. I also call him out on things that did not get accomplished as he...

Who hates more: the left or the right?What happened? I asked a question. Why am I unable to share my hubs on Facebook? Even a fellow hubber could not find me. Who hates people with a vitriol more, the left or the right?

I'm sure anyone who has seen my responses on HubPages knows I'm a conservative. I also have relatives who are liberal, gay as well as a recent revelation of a transsexual. So, how do we all get along? We discuss politics but realize family is more important than politics. At...

Do left-handers tend to be liberal in politics? (i.e. Are Left-handers, left?) .I'd estimate that 7/8 ths of the left-hander I know are liberal Democrats. Seven of the last 13 left-handed Presidents, starting with FDR were Democrats. (BTW - Considering that only 10-13% of the population is...
