Michael Moore, Media Whore, Says That Trump Supporters Are Exactly Like Rapists

Maybe you’ve noticed a trend from the anti-Trump crowd that whenever the President does something that they don’t like, they come up with some terrible name to call him. Whether it be “racist” “sexist” or even “Hitler” when the opportunity arises.

This serves more than one purpose; firstly it puts a bad taste in the mouth of anyone who repeatedly hears the name Trump associated with these bad things. It also allows people to say very nasty things about him and they can fall back on the idea that they were talking in generalizations about all racist or sexist or Hitler types. And last, but not least, it shames those who support him by allowing all Trump supporters to be painted with a wide and unflattering brush.

This is a tactic that’s been absolutely perfected by Mr. Alt-Left himself, Michael Moore, who just can’t say enough bad things about President Trump and his supporters. He may have finally gone over the line this time though. Moore is so upset with the President and he has taken the liberty of calling everyone who voted for him a racist, and maybe a rapist . . . he seems to be intentionally mixing those two together.

Via The Blaze:

Michael Moore blasted white Donald Trump voters while talking to Don Lemon on CNN Tuesday evening after the president’s statement to the press where he appeared to defend the alt-right. He accused them of being “enablers” in the same way one might be to a rapist.

“Not all Trump supporters are racist,” Lemon said to Moore.

“Not all, I said the vast majority,” he answered.

“And they take offense to people calling them racist because they support,” Lemon added, “they supported him. So the question is how do you deal with that.”

Critics of Trump have condemned him roundly for the third statement he made about the attack in Charlottesville where he appeared to equate the left-wing “antifa” members with the white supremacist and alt-right protesters who allegedly inspired the murderous violence.

“We don’t talk about this much,” Moore explained at the beginning of the segment. “Two thirds, sixty four percent, almost two thirds of white men voted for Trump. Fifty three percent of white women, the majority, voted for Trump.”

There’s this concept called reductio ad absurdum (Latin for “reduction to absurdity”; or argumentum ad absurdum, “argument to absurdity”) and it’s a form of argument which attempts either to disprove a statement by showing it inevitably leads to a ridiculous, absurd, or impractical conclusion, or to prove one by showing that if it were not true, the result would be absurd or impossible. Moore’s argument is a classic example of this concept in so many ways.

Let’s assume for a moment that the President is genuinely a racist (which, for the record is not something I’m ready to stipulate). Even if he were the biggest racist that ever walked, being a racist speaks to personal belief. A personal belief that manifests itself in some objectionable ways, but the feeling itself isn’t wrong. It’s a thought, not an action, and in America, we don’t prosecute for thought crimes, at least not yet.

Rape, on the other hand, is an action and a pretty darn illegal one at that. Holding someone down for a horrible crime to be committed against them is so far removed from supporting someone who will make governmental decisions who might or might not have thoughts that I disagree with. There were dozens of other logical flaws in Moore’s argument, but I’m sure you can see them yourself.

There was one thing he said that I wholeheartedly agree with though, let’s cut the BS and speak rationally. That would be a nice change.
