Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore recently came out and urged Trump supporters to start wearing masks to protect them against COVID-19 infection, arguing that if they didn’t, millions of them could die and that would be less Republican voters.
Moore made his statement in an Instagram post, noting that being loyal to President Donald Trump isn’t worth dying over.
“I have two words for MAGA Nation: Don’t Die,” he said.
“Your love of and loyalty to Trump isn’t worth your life,” he added. “With 73 million of you refusing to wear a mask and to social distance, there’ll be no way to eradicate this disease. And a lot of you are going to die.”Trending:
As he went on, Michael Moore likened the death rate to al-Qaeda killing Americans every 37 seconds.
“Why do you want to infect your spouse, your parents, your children? By now, despite your bluster and anger, I KNOW that YOU know that this pandemic is real,” Moore added. “One person is dying every 37 seconds? What do you think that is? If al-Qaeda started killing one American every 37 seconds, what would you want to do about that? Why are you doing NOTHING to stop this slaughter? What will it take for you and I to join, arm in arm, to kill Covid-19? The death of your mother? Your son? Where’s the exact line where you’ll say enough is enough?”
Moore then went on in the post to cite the various long-term effects and disabilities that folks who have contracted the coronavirus are suffering from, including the loss of taste and smell, along with a loss of balance.
“Those are the long term disabilities that many people who don’t die from the virus end up with. At what point will you just say, ‘to hell with politics and politicians — I want my family to live!’” the filmmaker asked.
He then went on to assure Trump fans that he really does care and wants to see folks survive the pandemic.
“So today I am reaching my hand out to you, my neighbor, my fellow American. I do so out of love and respect and the deep desire to see you live,” the “Bowling for Columbine” director said. “Let’s agree to wear a mask. Let’s agree to keep our physical distance. This isn’t forever! We can lick this thing!”
“Look at it this way — if millions of you die off, that’s a lot less Republican voters — and that means we win every election from here on out! Do you want your loved ones who are left behind to be ruled by US?” Moore asked. “Because when you’re gone, we’re gonna make sure every single one of them has free health care, free college, a middle class wage, and living in a neighborhood with all kinds of people — and in cities and states being run by women! And I’m going to see that that all happens — all because you wouldn’t wear a 50-cent mask!”
Nice try, Moore. Really. Got to give you an “A” for effort.
Look, the bottom line with masks is that the science about whether or not they are effective has come up short. It doesn’t seem they actually prevent folks from catching the virus as well as we’ve all been told.
Since they don’t really work all that well, it’s a waste of time to even bother wearing one. That’s it. That’s what it’s all about.
The hard left are the ones who have made this political. It’s clear they are taking advantage of the pandemic as a means of pushing forward their agenda and seeking to usurp power and control over the citizenry. We just can’t allow that to happen.
