Looks like Michael Moore only hates on capitalism when it doesn’t affect him. As soon as you try and mess with his money, Mike seems to channel a righteous, litigious, capitalist tone. Apparently, Michel Moore thinks he’s owed some money for Fahrenheit 9/11 (is he profiting off a tragedy, too?), and he’s suing Harvey Weinstein to get what he feels he’s owed.
“Now, there's something that makes me very, very happy and that is the multimillionaire Michael Moore is suing Harvey and Bob Weinstein,” Glenn said on radio this morning.
“And [The Weinstein’s] already paid him 19.8 million? So I'm sure, I'm absolutely positive, there's no doubt in my mind that the only reason he's doing this lawsuit is so that he can send that extra money directly to the government to be redistributed to the poor,” Pat said of Moore’s lawsuit.
“He hates capitalism. So obviously,” Stu added.
“He told everyone that you can't make it. He said that it's impossible for you to make it, that you should stop trying, you will never get rich. And this must mean what he meant. You can only make $18 million but the man is going to screw you out of your last 2.7. That's what I think he meant,” Stu said.
“Only that fat guy from Flint, Michigan can become rich. Everybody else forget about it,” Pat concluded.
Glenn pointed out that with documentaries that make money, they usually have a big profit due to lower production costs compared to most studio films. So it’s not like Michael Moore has been left holding the bill for the movie. This is all profit (Sound the alarm! Someone alert the left that someone wants to be paid for creating something! Tell that guy who directed Capitalism: A Love Story! Oh wait…).
Don’t worry Mike, in a few years – if you have your way - you’ll be rationed out exactly what you need regardless of what you make.
