You May Be Surprised By What Some Liberal Critics Are Saying About Michael Moore’s New Anti-Trump Movie

Published

on

You would think that, in 2018, the fastest way to a movie critic’s heart would be to spend 90 minutes complaining about and ruthlessly slamming Trump.

Michael Moore has learned that, for many critics, this was entirely true with his new film, “Fahrenheit 11/9”.

But they weren’t all thrilled.

While the film, Moore’s second on Trump (and no, Trump hasn’t even been in office two years yet, so just think about how much of Moore’s head he occupies), received an 85% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, there was a stunning 18% that found it to be “rotten.”

And it wasn’t all from conservatives.

A handful of left-leaning critics seem to have had one collective response: “Yawn.”

That’s right!

Apparently, while liberals have no hesitation at bashing Trump day in and day out, when it’s coming from Michael Moore, was it so much to expect a little originality?

The Daily Wire captures a few of the underwhelmed reviews:

David Sims, The Atlantic

“A disjointed, occasionally powerful, often grating grab bag of recent political events, a mess that’s forgivable only because it does reflect the messy state of the world.”

“Moore’s disdain for President Trump is mostly contained to lazy shots about his (undeniably creepy) affection for his daughter Ivanka; he’s perhaps assuming that his audience will not need much convincing on Trump’s leadership deficiencies.”

Jake Cole, Slant Magazine

“Fahrenheit 11/9 represents a sincerely bold attempt to capture the overwhelming civic decay that led to our current political crisis, but Michel Moore’s circus-showman duplicity is as crass and abhorrently self-promoting as that of Donald Trump.”

Rafer Guzman, Newsday

“A short review of Moore’s film could consist of three words: We knew that. … If Moore really wanted to explain how Trump became president, he might have spent some screen time talking with Trump supporters. Instead, ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ just feels like comfort food for the Resistance.”

Mark Feeney, Boston Globe

“By the end of ‘Fahrenheit’ Moore is in rant mode. ‘The America I want to save is the America we never had’ (huh?) and ‘We have to get rid of the whole rotten system that gave us Donald Trump.’ That basically means any part of the Democratic Party to the right of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whom we briefly glimpse in a news clip.

“The movie’s a dynamic mess, and the dynamism makes the messiness feel that much messier.”

Stephen Dalton, Times

“Fahrenheit 11/9 is funny and mischievous in parts, but too little of it feels fresh or shocking.”

Yikes!

Maybe it’s time for Moore to find a new powerhouse.

MAGA Hoaxer Could Face Serious Jail Time for Fake Hate Crime

And the liberals use to call *us* deplorable?!

Published

on

MAGA

The lengths to which the liberal left will go in order to disparate President Donald Trump have been disturbing, to say the least.

We have seen no shortage of wild and violent attempts to disparage The Donald.  What began with Kathy Griffin’s insane decapitation photoshoot has morphed into very real violence, and very fake news.

The latest attempt by Hollywood to delegitimize the President comes to us from Empire actor Jussie Smollett, who police now believe paid two actors to “assault” him, while shouting slogans tied to President Trump.

Smollett is claiming to have no foreknowledge of the attack, but police aren’t convinced.  Their investigation into the incident has revealed that the Nigerian brothers who claim Smollett put them up to it even tried to drum up the anti-MAGA hat tropes as well.

Documents prove two Nigerian brothers who work as extras on the highly rated Fox drama bought the rope which was found around Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in Chicago.

The brothers made the purchase on the weekend of January 25.

They also bought two red plain hats that they wore during the alleged attack, according to sources close to the investigation.

Police believe that the red hats were purchased at a local beauty supply store in the Uptown section of Chicago.

Thanks to his deliberate and deceitful act, Smollett could find himself behind bars for a substantial amount of time.

Filing a false report to police in the State of Illinois is considered an act of disorderly conduct, which is a Class 4 felony.

That means that anyone found guilty could face between one and three years in prison.

By law, the crime of disorderly conduct is committed in Illinois by anyone who ‘transmits or causes to be transmitted in any manner to any peace officer, public officer or public employee a report to the effect that an offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed, knowing at the time of the transmission that there is no reasonable ground for believing that the offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed.’

Chicago Police have indicated a desire to re-interview Smollett regarding the incident.

Hollywood Steps Up To Defend Antisemitic Democrat

Are these Hollywood actors so blinded by their “resistance” that they are willing to become antisemite-sympathizers?

There are so many different anecdotes about history and its reputation for repetition that I’ll allow you, dear reader, to fill in your own right here.

We look to the past to ensure our future, because it is a far more sturdy indicator of the way the world works than any social science of our modern age.  We see populations rise and fall, along with their governments, all in a quest for freedom and happiness.

It is when we feel shame looking back that we have to be the most cognizant.  We can’t shy away from the ugly, hateful truths of humanity.

The Holocaust is a near perfect example, although I despise the idea of situating the word “perfect” anywhere near the atrocity that I am describing.

Liberating troops in the waning days of World War II, as instructed to do so by the governments to which they took oath,  led mandatory guided tours of the Nazi concentration camps for citizens living in the areas surrounding them.  This was not a punishment, although the misery and sorrow certainly weighed upon these people in the same way that guilt does.

No, this was an opportunity for education; an opportunity to say, “don’t turn your back on your leaders for one minute”.

It was antisemitic hatred, driven by leftwing socialists, that caused the Holocaust, and today, here in America, we have liberals in our Congress who have expressed prejudice against the Jewish people.

What’s worse?  Hollywood is siding with the antisemite.

Hollywood celebrities concerned about bigotry in America made one big exception this week to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she was accused of anti-Semitism for remarks she made about the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Ilhan Omar said in a social media post about GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy defending Israel.

The deplorable diatribe was lambasted by the sane among us, but, for some reason, Hollywood just couldn’t let this discriminatory democrat face the music.

And then this, from Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman who has already apologized for a stunt in which she dressed like Adolf Hitler while appearing on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show.

Are these Hollywood actors so blinded by their “resistance” that they are willing to become antisemite-sympathizers?
