Occupy Hypocrisy: Michael Moore visits Portland

by NW Spotlight

Criticism of the filmmaker’s hypocrisy is not limited to conservatives

Filmmaker Michael Moore visited Portland yesterday as part of a book tour. While in Portland, Moore spoke to the Occupy Portland protesters.

Willamette Week noted that Moore was a “1 percenter”, and that he was an hour and a half late getting to speak to the protesters. Moore himself has admitted he’s a 1 percenter.

NewsBusters reported that Portland’s own Daylight Disinfectant asked Moore some tough questions, which Moore ignored: “An Occupy Portland participant asked Moore if the richest 400 people in the country could “give back” $1 million each. The hypocritical flimmaker repeated the question saying it was a good idea. A reporter for the Oregon based website Daylight Disinfectant shouted out, “How about a million of your 50 million?” Moore declined to answer.

A writer on left-leaning MEDIAite wrote that they wished Daylight Disinfectant had asked “Moore about his use of non-union workers on his Capitalism: A Love Story“.

The Portland Mercury noted that Moore “swept off into a black SUV”.

    Hypocrite. That’s the single best word to describe Michael Moore. Oh sure, there’s fat, tub of lard, porker but what he really is a lying sack of crap. He’s made a fortune by telling lies to liberals but then lies are what they want to hear. And it’s fine for him to go and meet with the “occupiers” and tell them what they want to hear, just don’t ask him to part with any of his ill gotten gain.

      The film ‘flam’ maker couldn’t spare time to respond to cogent questions from the assemblage.

      Really, Moore’s  “15 Minutes” no more coherent than a Debbie Wasserman Schultz mental midget moment.

    This brave man has done more for the “movement” than almost any other single person and should be lauded for his selfless efforts at bringing down “the man”.
    I, for one, am a fan for life of this big man.

      God you must be the biggect tard on the planet if you believe anything Obese Boy says. The only coherent “movement” idiots like you accomplish is in the bathroom!

      My hero is Spongebob Squarepants. He provides similar intellectual material on social issues.

  • Oh see can you say

    Scenelike Michael Moore appearing before the occupiers of Jamison Square and Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh lurching out to ‘interloping’ occupiers of Rajneeshpuram.

    Polka anyone?
    “And there’s never any room there

    For a worry or a gloom there

    Oh there’s music and there’s dancing

    And a lot of sweet romancing

    When they play the polka

    They all get in the swing

    Every time they hear that com-pa-pa

    Everybody feels so tra-la-la

    They want to throw their cares away

    They all go lah-de-ah-de-ay

    Then they hear a rumble on the floor, the floor

    It’s the big surprise they’re waiting for

    And all the couples form a ring

    For miles around you’ll hear them sing

    ROLLS out the barrel, we’ll have a barrel of fun

    ROLLS out the barrel, we’ve got the blues on the run

    Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer

    Now’s the time to worship unto the dork barrel, d’oh the gang’s all here

    Da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da!”
