Michael Moore CELEBRATES Communist victory in Vietnam

Michael Moore compared Trump, supporters to Nazis, encourages violence

Michael Moore compared Trump, supporters to Nazis, encourages violenceOn Sunday, wealthy liberal filmmaker Michael Moore celebrated the Communist victory in Vietnam, earning the ire of quite a few people, including Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro.

“We lost the Vietnam War 42yrs ago today. Should be a nat’l holiday, a commitment to never make same mistake again,” he said on Twitter.

Shapiro responded:

Others weighed in as well:

The Daily Wire added:

Moore has used the Vietnam War as his impetus for railing against America’s involvement overseas for years; in his book Here Comes Trouble, he told a story about his heroic relinquishing of a date with the future prom queen in eighth grade and subsequent date of the least attractive girl in his class at the behest of a black teacher in his Catholic school that he also had the hots for. Praised by the teacher, he was supposedly devastated when she disappeared from the school, the very week coinciding with the Tet Offensive, giving Moore the chance to reminisce:

The Tet Offensive of 1968 sent a shock wave through the American public because, opposite of everything we had been told about the United States soon “winning” the war – “We can see the light at the end of the tunnel!” – in fact, Tet showed just how powerful the other side was and how badly we were losing. The Viet Cong were all over Saigon, even at the door of the U.S. embassy. We were nowhere near to winning anything.

Moore wrote that the students later discovered the teacher’s husband had been killed in Vietnam and she had had a breakdown.

But, the Daily Wire further said, Moore was completely wrong on at least three counts.

First: the Tet offensive was a military failure for North Vietnam, but the leftist media in the United States seized upon it to paint a picture of America in retreat, thus paving the way for ultimate withdrawal from Vienam.

Second: Following the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam, communist despot Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge overthrew the U.S. backed government in Cambodia. Pol Pot’s regime, during their five years in power, killed somewhere between 1 and 2 million people in their country. An official of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights called the atrocities “the most serious that had occurred in the world since Nazism” and “nothing less than autogenocide.”

Third: The Vietnamese boat people largely fled Vietnam starting in 1975 after the communist North Vietnamese took control of the country. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees stated that between 200,000 and 400,000 boat people died at sea.

“For Moore to celebrate the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam is a monstrous insult to the dead who were killed after we left,” Hank Berrien concluded.

That’s putting it mildly.  It’s also a monstrous insult to the thousands of Americans who fought in that war.
