Michael Moore: Americans Care More About Guns Than Children

News & Politics

Hours after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas during MSNBC’s live coverage of the aftermath of the tragedy Tuesday, Chris Hayes decided to bring on leftist filmmaker Michael Moore to get his thoughts. 

Predictably, Moore smeared law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters as uncaring and being ok with children dying. Moore despicably claimed “we need to admit that we love our guns more than we love our children. And if you are watching and listening and saying, ‘oh, I don’t have guns, of course, I love children more,’ well, the proof’s in the pudding.” 

Presumably referring to Republicans in Congress, Moore wailed that “the actions are including people who do nothing and say nothing about this. It’s clear that we’re more concerned about bipartisanship, preserving the filibuster so that we can’t get anything passed. And I think that we’ve let this happen.”

Host Chris Hayes sat back for most of the segment and allowed Moore to rant and rave about how evil gun owners are in the United States and whined that “this is the new normal, and it’s not going to change.”

In a tacit admission of the ineffectiveness of gun control to stop the evil act that occurred in Texas, Moore admitted “none of the gun laws that people are going to discuss on any network over the next few days — background checks, ghost guns, all this. None of that would have stopped today. These were legally purchased guns by a legal adult. And these laws that we talk about are not going to fix the problem.” 

Moments later he ghoulishly suggested that the parents should leave the caskets of the children who were shot to death open for the world to see their wounds. The thesis is that this would force Americans to support Moore’s beloved gun control.

MICHAEL MOORE: But you asked me to come on tonight because I do want to say some things here. And number one is, we need to admit that we love our guns more than we love our children. And if you are watching and listening and saying, oh, I don’t have guns, of course, I love children more, well, the proof’s in the pudding.

The actions are including people who do nothing and say nothing about this. It’s clear that we’re more concerned about bipartisanship, preserving the filibuster so that we can’t get anything passed. And I think that we’ve let this happen. I watched Steve Kerr, an hour or so ago, I don’t know if you guys have shown, just before the game in Dallas. And he just exploded with rage. His dad was killed in an act of violence, an assassination, the coach of the warriors. — I think, Chris, that we need to — listen, this is what I don’t want to say because I want people to be hopeful. 

But the truth is, this is the new normal. And it’s not going to change. None of the gun laws that people are going to discuss on any network over the next few days — background checks, ghost guns, all this. None of that would have stopped today. These were legally purchased guns by a legal adult. And these laws that we talk about are not going to fix the problem. But I don’t think we want to fix it. I don’t think–I think — I don’t know what it would take. 

I said years ago, after Sandy Hook, that if the Sandy Hook parents did what Emmett Till’s mother did when he was brutally murdered by white supremacists in 1955, and she demanded that the casket be open at his funeral so that America could see what her child looked like, that created such an uproar, that it also created in part, a movement, as Rosa Parks said, five months later after Emmett Till after seeing him in that casket, I decided not to give up my seat on that bus.
