Michael Moore's startling endorsement of Donald Trump

On 7 October 2016, film-maker, Michael Moore, an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter and strident critic of Donald Trump, paid Clinton's presidential opponent unexpected homage at Murphy's Theatre in Wilmington, Ohio.

This, in part, is what he said:
"I know a lot of people in Michigan that are planning to vote for Trump... They're not racist or redneck, they're actually pretty decent people...  
Donald Trump came to the Detroit Economic Club and stood there in front of Ford Motor executives and said 'if you close these factories as you're planning to do in Detroit and build them in Mexico, I'm going to put a 35% tariff on those cars when you send them back and nobody's going to buy them.'
It was an amazing thing to see. No politician, Republican or Democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin...

He's saying the things to people who are hurting, and that's why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump. He is the human Molotov Cocktail that they've been waiting for; the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them.

And on November 8, although they lost their jobs, although they've been foreclose on by the bank, next came the divorce and now the wife and kids are gone, the car's been repoed, they haven't had a real vacation in years... they've essentially lost everything they had except one thing - the one thing that doesn't cost them a cent and is guaranteed to them by the American constitution: the right to vote.

They might be penniless, they might be homeless, they might be fucked over and fucked up it doesn't matter, because it's equalized on that day - a millionaire has the same number of votes as the person without a job: one. And there's more of the former middle class than there are in the millionaire class.

So on November 8 the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain, and take that lever or felt pen or touchscreen and put a big fucking X in the box by the name of the man who has threatened to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J Trump.

They see that the elite who ruined their lives hate Trump. Corporate America hates Trump. Wall Street hates Trump. The career politicians hate Trump. The media hates Trump, after they loved him and created him, and now hate. Thank you media: the enemy of my enemy is who I'm voting for on November 8.

Yes, on November 8, you Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, all the Blows get to go and blow up the whole goddamn system because it's your right. Trump's election is going to be the biggest 'fuck you' ever recorded in human history."
Just to give you an idea of how extraordinary Moore's Wilmington intervention really was, here is something an entirely typical left-wing luvvie said of Trump and his opinions the previous December:

As I say, extraordinary, given that this comes from the Trump-hating liberal Left.

It should not be extraordinary, the truth, the facts, the reality, ought to be commonplace and expected, as it once was. But nowadays, I'm afraid, hype, spin, propaganda and downright lies rule the roost in the Western World.

However, despite all the incredible smears and nastiness, Donald Trump still leads in about half of the recent opinion polls. However, you wouldn't know this if all you had to go on was the coverage in the mainstream. Here, the election is a done deal. The ghastly female is home and dry.

Well, the liars should check out this section of 'Michael Moore in Trumpland' and get real. I don't think Moore intended to afford the Donald such a ringing endorsement and, indeed, 'Trumpland,' in its entirety, still provides a hearty testimonial for the Clinton camp. However, the words he uses and the manner in which he uses them in the section of his presentation cited above are nothing if not clear. Moore spells out, in plain language, why the dispossessed and disenfranchised will vote for Donald Trump. The elite, if the election is not a total fit up, should be shivering in their shoes.

As I'm sure they are. You just wouldn't know it from what you are likely to see on TV or read in a daily newspaper.
