This week’s Village Idiot Award, by unanimous vote, goes to Michael Moore for his latest patently absurd, shall we say, hyperbolic statement.
According to Moore, the NRA is worse than ISIS…because, you know, they’ve raped and pillaged and beheaded lots of people.
But let’s not get too much in a tizzy.
It’s folks like Michael Moore who ritually beclown themselves and remind all of America how completely irrational and entirely unreasonable the left really is on basically everything.
Meanwhile, the 50 million babies aborted since Roe v. Wade are wondering why Planned Parenthood didn’t at least earn an honorable mention in Moore’s epithets.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
In a fury over Nikolas Cruz’s shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore joined the chorus of voices on the Left blaming the NRA for the murders. He tweeted Friday: “The NRA is a terrorist organization. The media should speak of the NRA in the same way they do ISIS.”
Piling on the implausibility, he added: “Total ISIS-inspired deaths in US = 79. Thanks to the NRA & the politicians they buy, we’ve had 1.2 MILLION American gun deaths since John Lennon was shot dead in NYC #NRAKillsKids.”
Moore’s figures — 79 deaths “inspired” by ISIS, 1.2 million “thanks to the NRA,” — are a breathtakingly tendentious oversimplification. But even taking them at face value, his equivalence is absurd. Michael Moore demonstrates that he knows nothing about either the NRA or the Islamic State (ISIS).
After all, you remember when the NRA conquered all that territory and collected the jizya from non-NRA members. You remember when the NRA forced all those female non-NRA members into sex slavery. You remember the NRA’s series of grisly public beheadings. You remember when the NRA called upon its members to murder civilians in the U.S. and Europe by shooting them, or knifing them, or running over them with cars.
