Michael Moore Doesn’t Want to Share the Wealth

So-called liberals really have the best of both worlds –  socialists on the outside and capitalists on the inside.

Michael Moore demonstrated his competitive, capitalist spirit on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday night. Apparently, his journey from middle-class Michigan boy to successful media mogul (estimated at $25  million) has made him a bit reluctant to spread the wealth. After “respectfully” asking President Obama to take off “the pink tutu” and start “fighting for the little people,” Moore, in the usual leftist,’ there’s not enough to go around’ paranoia tried to dissuade Maher’s audience from chasing the American dream. Repeating the line from his pre rich-and- famous days he stated:

The lie that we’ve been fed from the time that we’re children is that anyone in America can grow up to be that millionaire.

Either Moore believes his own life is a lie or like other members of the ruling class he believes he’s smarter, shrewder and more ambitious than the working stiffs he defends; the same poor shmucks in the audience applauding him and fattening his wallet.

Moore also stated that the day he voted for Obama was  “one of the best days I’ve had in the past decade.”  How odd that he would support a president who stated numerous times on the campaign trail that his life is a testimony to the same American dream Moore disparages.

From Bettendorf, Iowa December 21, 2007:

These are dreams that drove my mother…she followed her passion…and raised my sister and me to believe that in America there’s no barrier to success-no matter what color you are, no matter where you’re from, no matter how much money you have.

After writing  The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream the Obamas’ worth stands at around $5 million. No strangers to the corporate world Moore despises, Mrs. Obama raked in $317,000 per year at the University of Chicago and they still own a $1.6 million home in exclusive Hyde Park.

Who’s feeding whom a lie?

Like Moore, stand-up comedian Bill Maher also has a vested interest in championing the little guy. He tapped into the socialist narrative years ago and found out it paid big money.  He’s worth about $13 million.

It takes Obamian-size arrogance to play this duplicitous game. Maher, Moore, Obama and others like them keep their pockets lined by discouraging the masses from pursuing a better financial future for themselves and their families. The enthralled minions can’t see that without the class-warfare schtick, these hucksters might still be lining up at local comedy clubs or teaching Alinsky’s methods instead of practicing them.
