“It’s not envy, it’s war, it is a class war, it’s a war that’s been perpetrated by the rich on to everyone else. The class war is one they started. The mistake they made to deal with the racial part of this, is, um, their boots have been on the necks of people of color since we began. This is a nation founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves, alright, so we started with a racial problem.”
Spoken like a devout Marxist. Michael Moore forgot to mention that five states abolished slavery before the Constitution was even ratified. And within 100 years Republican President Abraham Lincoln abolished slavery altogether. It’s a good thing Moore never appears with true historians at his events. He would look even more foolish than he does when he berates the 1%ers.
