Michael Moore—you know Michael Moore: the fat socialist goodwhite guy who makes movies about how unspeakably bad white capitalists are—Michael Moore has taken Donald Trump to task for proposing a ban on giving visas to Muslims.Taking a break from listening to his Woody Guthrie LPs, Moore posted a long open letter to Trump on his Facebook page, decorated with a picture of him, Moore, standing outside Trump Tower in Manhattan holding a big sign saying We are all MuslimTrump's proposed ban is, says Moore, quote, "desperate and insane." Further quote:Go here to listen to the whole thing. And last week's Radio Derb now has the transcript posted, a new feature.
I was raised to believe that we are all each other's brother and sister, regardless of race, creed or color. That means if you want to ban Muslims, you are first going to have to ban me.I don't know about you, listener, but that leaves me liking Trump's proposal even more than I did before.
