On Friday, Michael Moore, the wealthy filmmaker who once suggested disarming all police officers while releasing a large number of blacks from prison, angered many on Twitter with a series of maddening tweets dealing with the Charleston shooting.

Somehow, Moore, who has never been accused of being the sharpest pencil in the box, managed to tie the shootings to the Civil War while impugning the entire state of South Carolina.  And he demanded the state remove the Confederate Battle flag “TODAY.”

He was just getting warmed up:

He also made demands of the media:

He then impugned white people, apparently ignorant of the fact that he, too, is white.  But then, he’s a liberal, so his name-calling doesn’t apply to him:

Twitchy noted that a number of people “gave him the business.”


One person assumed Moore actually has a brain:


But liberals are saying otherwise.  According to the left, ALL whites must answer for the shootings, because according to a growing number, all whites are terrorists who must be denied their Constitutional rights.

Listening to the left, one would get the idea that white people everywhere are running around killing blacks willy-nilly.  But it turns out that’s not quite true.

The National Review noted:

A “white” homicide victim is over twice as likely to be killed by a black than a black homicide victim is to be killed by a “white.” Sixteen percent of “white” victims in homicide incidents involving a single victim and single offender were killed by blacks, compared with only 7 percent of black victims who are killed by “whites.” Given the fact that blacks are less than 13 percent of the national population, their homicide rate against whites and Hispanics combined is vastly disproportionate to their share of the population.

But don’t tell Michael Moore.  It would only confuse him…
