Attention single ladies: As of this week, Michael Moore is now an eligible bachelor. He’s still a jerk. He’s still a flaming liberal hypocrite. He’s still an ignorant buffoon. But if that’s your thing, he’s on the market and available.
The 60-year-old degenerate filmmaker has officially left his wife of 22 years, Kathleen Glynn, who, ironically, served as executive producer on many of Moore’s documentaries — like “Bowling for Columbine,” “Sicko” and “Fahrenheit 9/11.” No one really knows why they’ve split up. Maybe she finally had it with his homeless bum attire.
But who really gives a crap, right? Divorce happens every day in Hollywood. There’s always some sort of marital drama, tragic breakup or, my personal favorite, the never-ending search for some poor girl’s “baby daddy.”
Seriously. There’s more drama in real-life Hollywood than in the fictional films that are vomited out of that place.
To put things rather bluntly: I really don’t care about Moore’s divorce. Honestly, I’m not sure how any woman survived 22 years with a man who adheres to the radical anti-American ideology that Moore does. I don’t know either of them personally (and I don’t really care to), so I can’t comment on the dynamics of their relationship.
But what I will comment on are the details of their divorce settlement — details which were, like everything else in Hollywood circles, released to the gawking, drama-obsessed American public for pure amusement and scrutiny. So at the risk of turning my blog into a TMZ-style gossip center, here’s my humble two cents on the fact that Mr. Anti-Capitalism apparently owns nine houses.
Yes, you read that right. Nine houses. It’s right there in black and white in the divorce settlement papers.
Did I mention that one of those houses is a $2 million, 10,000 square foot lakefront mansion in Michigan? He’s also got a Manhattan condo that was once three condos and seven other properties. CelebrityNetWorth.com pegs his wealth at over $50 million. Not bad for a guy who makes a living demonizing rich people and the capitalist system — a system that, ironically, has allowed him to have unbridled success.
So it doesn’t seem to make sense that someone who has flourished financially within the parameters of the great American capitalism system would say something like this:
“Capitalism is an organized system to guarantee that greed becomes the primary force of our economic system and allows the few at the top to get very wealthy and has the rest of us riding around thinking we can be that way too — if we just work hard enough, sell enough Tupperware and Amway products, we can get a pink Cadillac.”
Moore speaks as if he’s a poor or middle class American — using phrases like “the rest of us.” Somehow I doubt that a guy who owns nine houses can identify with the average American. Here’s a jewel from Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story.”
“Capitalism is an evil, and you cannot regulate evil. You have to eliminate it and replace it with something that is good for all people and that something is democracy.”
Something tells me that Moore and Obama would get along.
Take a good look, readers. This is the hypocrisy of the liberal Left. If you really needed further proof, then here he is. Michael Moore is an anti-capitalist Capitalist. He’s a one-percenter who has gotten filthy rich exposing how filthy rich the one-percenters are. Do a little research and you’ll find that he’s not even in the one-percent. At $50 million, he’s actually in the .001 percent.
I don’t begrudge Mr. Moore his wealth. I’m glad that he’s rich. I’d like to see every American get rich. That’s what the capitalist system is all about, right? The opportunity for everyone to better their lives, make money and pursue their dreams and passions — even if those passions are fueled by unhealthy ideology. I may not agree with Mr. Moore’s message and his films, but he’s very good at what he does. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be raking in millions of dollars every year. If we were to despise Mr. Moore for his wealth, we would be no different than him. We would be filled with the same unjustified, uneducated hate.
But don’t be fooled by Mr. Moore. Don’t be duped by his beliefs. Capitalism is not evil. Capitalism is what works.
You live in a country where one guy is paid $75 million/year to say, “I am Iron Man” while you’re paid $7.25/hour to say, “Would you like fries with that?”
Fair? Yes. If you don’t think so, move to China, North Korea or Russia and see how well communism and socialism work for you. Once you’re forced into a labor camp, it may take more than Iron Man to save you.
