Michael Moore, made a reputation and career of producing very one-sided documentaries designed to promote his own perverse and warped views, is supportive of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
He actively talks about the 99 percenters and their justifiable complaints aimed at the 1 percenters in the nation. Moore has said that the wealthiest one percent are largely responsible for many of the nation’s current economic and jobs problems and they need to be held accountable. He constantly lashes out at capitalism and America’s way of allowing people like him to make millions of dollars while at the same taking advantage of the very system he attacks.
Michael Moore appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight show recently and was questioned about his own income placing him in the top one percent. Moore denied that he’s in the top one percent and admit to his taking advantage of the system
And if anyone is interested, according to IRS reports, those people in the US considered to be in the top one percent of wage earnings make a minimum of $343,927 in annual adjusted gross income. Moore’s exact income has not been listed, but it’s easy to figure out that he does make significantly more than that a year from his projects. He doesn’t do the his films, books and appearances for free, does he?
Moore admits to making a lot more but claims to use it for making his movies and helping those who have lower incomes…. How much lower is never resolved. If you make $100 less, in his eyes that would qualify as lower income. I don’t think he means those of us who hover around $1000 or less a month. Other than produce lies and intellectual nonsense for the screen, how does Moore help those less fortunate than he? Does he give money away? Does he spend time with charitable organizations? Does he help small businesses Has he been seen working on a Habitat house? What DOES he DO to help the ‘less fortunate’? (He still charges them to see his lies and distorted mockumentaries.)
Michael Moore is even MUCH more guilty than many of the Wall Street elite he and the OWS are protesting. He not only is part of the one percent, but he takes FULL advantage of that position while at the same time publicly railing against the system that is making him wealthier day by day.
Michael Moore is nothing more than a fraud, liar and charlatan and should be exposed for such.
