Michael Moore: Anti-Trump Coup Supporter
by Stephen Lendman
His irrational anti-Trump rage lost him credibility months ago. He’s either deranged, a Democrat party plant, funded by Trump-hating extremists like Soros, prematurely senile, or all of the above.
Throughout last year’s presidential campaign, he openly supported war criminal, racketeer, perjurer Hillary. After her defeat, he called for her to be installed as president anyway.
Ahead of Trump’s inauguration, he urged disrupting it – wanting it “block(ed), obstruct(ed),” and otherwise interfered with to prevent him from becoming president.
He tried bribing Republican electors to defect, saying “(i)f you vote your conscience…and your state fines you…I will pay your fine.”
After Trump’s inauguration, he called for him to “vacate” his office. In mid-February, he tweeted “it appears you are still squatting in our Oval Office.”
“What part of ‘vacate you Russian traitor’ don’t you understand? We can do this the easy way (you resign), or the hard way (impeachment).”
Other multiple tweets said “(l)et’s be VERY clear: Flynn DID NOT make that Russian call on his own.”
“He was INSTRUCTED to do so. He was TOLD to reassure them. Arrest Trump.”
“TRUMP KNEW EVERYTHING. It will all come out. Along with the rest of Trump’s collusion and obedience to Putin.”
“This is who Trump named ‘National Security Advisor.’ A lapdog to the lapdog of Putin. Feeling secure America? He’s gonna get us all killed.”
He demands “all actions being taken by” Trump’s administration halted, calling his administration “illegitimate” – urging his arrest and removal from office if he won’t voluntarily step down.
His rants are more delusional and deranged than rational thinking, making it appear he need psychiatric help. His latest tirade on Instagram said the following:
“The Democratic Party needs to declare a National Emergency. For the first time in our history, the President of the United States and his staff are under investigation for espionage.”
“This announcement, by the head of the Trump-friendly FBI, is a shock to our democracy. The Democratic leadership in the House and Senate needs to bring a halt to all business being done in the name of this potential felony suspect, Donald J. Trump.”
“No bill he supports, no Supreme Court nominee he has named, can be decided while he is under a criminal investigation. His presidency has no legitimacy until the FBI – and an independent investigative committee – discovers the truth.”
“Fellow citizens, demand the Democrats cease all business. ‘The American people have a right to know if their President is a crook.’ Richard Nixon
Trump and his campaign backers are being investigated for possible improper links to Russia, not espionage. Since last fall, FBI efforts uncovered nothing.
No evidence or hint of it suggests anything credible to uncover. Yet witch-hunt proceedings continue, perhaps endlessly, part of a diabolical plot to undermine him.
The only justifiable national emergency is over the urgency to halt US imperial wars, neoliberal harshness, and growing homeland tyranny – issues Moore and others like him ignore.
There’s plenty about Trump’s agenda to criticize. Bashing him for the wrong reasons, gratuitously, or for defeating Hillary is way out-of-bounds.
Wanting him illegitimately removed from office is the way banana republics operate.
His new book as editor and contributor is titled “Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks WW III.”
