On Wednesday, wealthy filmmaker Michael Moore issued a tweet referring to Independence Day as “Resistance Day,” and encouraged his fellow leftists to “finish” a revolt he believes is still being fought after 242 years.
“Happy Resistance Day! The revolt continues, some 242 years later. C’mon, people! Let’s finish this!” he tweeted.
Happy Resistance Day!
The revolt continues, some 242 years later.
C’mon, people! Let’s finish this!

Twitchy asked: “Let’s finish what? This plate of pork chops?”
Reaction on Twitter was pretty much what one might expect.
Blogger Jeff Dunetz, for example, gave a brief explanation of what Moore actually means by “finish this.”
Folks Michael Moore says "let's finish this" It means he wants to eat the leftovers from your bar-b-que, and your house

Others weighed in (no pun intended).
You are certainly revolting.

Finish what? Things are better now than they have been since Reagan left office. What are you revolting against, prosperity, peace, freedom?
— Eric Stacy (@EricStacy) July 5, 2018
Actually, yes. As we’ve reported previously, Moore has a long history of advocating socialist revolution against America.

I’m confused…what revolt? If he really believed in his cause, he would willingly give up half of his earnings to the govt from his socialist propaganda films. That’s what he wants right? I used to like his docs when I was young n didn’t understand social/economic behavior ????

Good point. According to The Richest, the 64-year-old 300-pound divorced college dropout is worth $50 million. Surely Moore could stand to give up half of that…
One person asked:
What does that even mean?

Moore gave us a clue on Facebook with this:
If there’s one thing we Americans are great at, it’s that we know how to depose a king (we’re also experts at overthrowing democratically-elected governments, but you already knew that).
This time we must remove our tyrant with the force of nonviolence!
We are the majority.
Happy Resistance Day! Let’s finish the job!
You read that right — he seems to be actually pushing for a coup to remove Trump from office and overthrow the government.
Naturally, Moore’s insane followers loved it.
“If our founding fathers were alive right now they would throw this administration in jail and put YOU IN CHARGE of the country from the heart and soul you have for all of us. Thank you for everything you do,” one person said.
“I stopped celebrating July 4th since pus bag was elected, but Happy Resistance day?? I love that now the date has a name for me anyway,” another person said.
A third person added: “If this continues and we cannot remove him by votes, I am afraid that we may have military coup. Not all generals think trump (sic) is on the right path. One way or another, he will be gone, vote democrats please.”
This, by the way, is the modern left…
