And we thought Hillary Clinton went overboard with her pandering attempt to honor Rosa Parks on the 60th anniversary of her refusal to give up her bus seat to a white man. Many politicians made room in their Twitter feeds and web sites today to honor Parks: President Obama, having already posted a photo of himself to mark the anniversary, ended up in the first lady’s tribute instead.
Filmmaker Michael Moore, however, proposed more than a tweet to mark the Rosa Parks anniversary.
Honor Rosa Parks: Purge police of racists. Release all nonviolent drug offenders. Make college free. Be a patriot – hire African Americans!
— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) December 2, 2015
It’s interesting to see how the idea of civil rights has progressed. Honoring the actions of Parks today includes releasing all nonviolent drug offenders of all races from prison (something that President Obama would like to have as part of his legacy, it seems) and providing free college to everyone.
Eat more chicken!
Color outside the lines!
Make everything free!
Hire only Olmecs!
Be a beautiful butterfly!

@MMFlint so you are ok with people hiring based on color?

Does he know that plenty of minorities own their own businesses and do their own hiring?
@MMFlint Patriots don't discriminate for or against a race, Michael. And "purge" is pretty strong language. Again, been drinking?

@MMFlint hiring any group of people is not a form of patriotism. Hire, befriend, etc. "Based on the content of their character."

@MMFlint Looks like you've covered all the bases, Michael. That's one meaty tweet.

@MMFlint release the non violent drug offenders who sell crack to children, who turn to violent crime to feed their addiction. F off.

@MMFlint lets purge the world of hypocritical socialists like Michael Moore. He seems to enjoy basking in his $8m penthouse in NYC.

@MMFlint and you live along with hoodies in downtown. Stop the pandering talk and come real?
