As we head into 2020 and prepare for maybe the most important presidential election in U.S. history filmmaker Michael Moore has publicly called out white people who voted for Donald Trump.
Moore, who is an Oscar Award documentary filmmaker and vocal activist has stated that“white people have not changed” he adds that people “should be afraid of them.”
Moore made the statements while being interviewed by Rolling Stone’s Useful Idiot’s podcast. Moore made it abundantly clear that he believes white people are still the same as when Barack Obama was in the White House.
“I refuse to participate in post-racial America,” Moore stated. “I refuse to say, ‘Because we elected Obama that suddenly that means everything’s OK, white people have changed.’ White people have not changed.”
“Two-thirds of all white guys voted for Trump,” Moore added.
“That means anytime you see three white guys walking at you, down the street toward you, two of them voted for Trump,” he continued.
“You need to move over to the other sidewalk because these are not good people that are walking toward you,” he went on to caution. “You should be afraid of them.”
Moore, 65, would go on to add that he would be the third guy, who did not waste his vote on Trump.
“We’re traitors to our race, that’s how they see us,” he said.
Moore has been a champion of liberal causes and has been an outspoken critic of Trump’s since he took office. Moore’s star power has allowed him to be influential in the world of politics.
On Thursday, Democracy Now published an interview with Moore. In the interview, the filmmaker was not optimistic about Trump being a one-term president.
“If the vote were today, I believe, he would win the electoral states that he would need, because, living out there, I will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch,” Moore stated.
“In fact, I’d say it’s even more rabid than it was before because they’re afraid now. They’re afraid he could lose because they watched his behavior. So, they are voracious in their appetite for Donald Trump. That’s the bad news.”
