Michael Moore: ‘I Refuse to Live in a Country Threatened by White Supremacy’
The 68-year-old said recent events upset his tranquility
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore said he cannot accept the privileges of 'full citizenship' until Roe v. Wade is reinstated and "every single Republican is removed from office."
The 68-year-old said recent events upset his tranquility.
Moore said he spends every waking moment nagging people he meets about the issues which have inflamed him.
Moore summed up his frustrations in a posting on Twitter with the title: "A mass shooting to celebrate the 4th."
A mass shooting to celebrate the 4th. A wealthy class that doubled its wealth while the country suffered. A Supreme Court that stripped 51% of our citizens of their reproductive rights while removing gun laws & killing the EPA. My Declaration: https://t.co/HJreg0lD50— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) July 4, 2022
"A wealthy class that doubled its wealth while the country suffered," it continued.
"A Supreme Court that stripped 51% of our citizens of their reproductive rights while removing gun laws & killing the EPA," it read.
Moore claims he is standing up for oft-touted American values of 'Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness' but he notes how unsettled he has become following recent events.
"I refuse to live in a country threatened by white supremacy," Moore said.
"And I'm not leaving," he began before railing at the recent decision made by the Supreme Court to overturn women's abortion rights.
"So we've got a problem," he said.
"I cannot in good conscience continue to receive the privileges of 'full citizenship' in this land when all of its women and girls have now been declared official second-class citizens with no rights to their own bodies and conscripted to a life of Forced Birth should they fall pregnant and not want to be," Moore continued as she commiserated following the overturning of the 1973 court ruling.
Moore then turned his attention to the numerous shootings of black Americans which have occurred in recent times.
"I demand an end to the mass incarceration of Black Americans, an end to police shooting Black people."
"And I demand that reparations be made to the Black community for all they currently have to suffer and endure," Moore proposed.
Moore also made the demand that all Republicans be forced out.
"I insist we remove every single Republican from office in November. The Republican Party has dismantled itself and its remaining rogue elements now exist purely to overturn legitimate election results and overthrow the elected will of the vast majority of the American people," he said.
"This must be halted without delay or equivocation," he said.
"If you invite me to dinner that's all I'm gonna talk about. Have me over to your party ... and I won't stop until Roe is reinstated and 51% of Congress is female," he teased.
