Distasteful liberal filmmaker Michael Moore found a way to not only repulse conservatives, but also upset his own permissive base. In a Saturday tweet, Moore condemned an entire race of people, one the scruffy activist belongs to.
In the tweet, Moore wrote: “Trump’s America: The last days of White rule. It’s always a b**ch to have to give up power you’ve held for 300 years.”
Moore’s tweet came in reference to the violent protests happening that day in Charlottesville, Virginia, which resulted in an emergency declaration, many instances of abuse and violence, and the death of a young paralegal after a car was driven through a crowd. The vehicle incident led to the arrest of a 20-year-old male.
The violence broke out between white supremacist groups, which were granted permission to assemble, and counter-protesters.

Moore’s tweet links to a New York Times article about the events that took place in Charlottesville. The stalwart liberal who relishes in attacking the President of the United States, sparked controversy with his offensive tweet.
Denouncing the comments as helping to fuel the racial divide, Moore’s critics hit at him with remarks like, ” ‘Last days of white rule’ ? But the democrat party started the KKK. The irony… ,” and “As a liberal, I would like to apologise for ALT LEFT constant race baiting and pandering 2 SJWs. Moore & MSM have RUINED our core values. ”

From what I’ve seen, the antifa and blm movements are much more violent, hateful and murderous. Where’s your outrage about those groups?

The overwhelming majority were insulted by Moore’s tweet, but others were bound to support his statement. One follower wrote: “Being the focus of hatred and oppression for centuries impacts ppl. Watch Blackish or black comedians…Or read books about growing up black.” Another tweeted: “Yes there always has been. The establishment have lost the control they had, more people awake today than previous generations.”
