How Michael Moore deals with death threats: ‘My two lovers, Ben and Jerry’

Controversial liberal filmmaker Michael Moore sat down with “Viewpoint” host John Fugelsang on Thursday evening for a wide-ranging interview that included how he deals with the death threats he’s received after making films such as Sicko and Fahrenheit 9/11.

Fugelsang began by talking about how former National Security Agency employee Edward Snowdon highlighted data gathering that got his guest to agree with the likes of Glenn Beck.

“The difference between me and Glenn Beck is that when Bush did it, he was okay with it,” Moore corrected. “He’s not okay with it now, when — as Bill Maher says — President Blackenstein is in charge.”

“I grew up in a generation where it was a Democrat who escalated the Vietnam War, in which 58,000 Americans died and it sent countless millions, Southeast Asians, to their deaths. That was done by a Democrat and it was continued by the Republican Nixon. It was a Democrat who spied on Martin Luther King [Jr.].”

Fugelsang said it was “good for democracy” to point out the differences between conservatives and Republicans and progressives and Democrats. ”I think it wakes people out of the duopoly puppet show.”

1. There was some creep who posted Moore's whereabouts on the internet

MM sent him a big check so that his wife could get medical treatment. That was in "Sicko".
The site has been gone for years. I announced it on DU

2. I like how he calls out LBJ

 

Who our liberal, and campus activist predecessors of the 60s had absolutely NO use for, which makes it odd to see so many people here pimping his photo in their avatar. I guess time heals all wounds, for some.

3. That was sweet.

I'm going to assume John Boehner also has his lovers Jim Bean and Johnny Walker to help him overcome criticism and death threats. I'm happy that Michael, who is on our side, prefers ice cream.
