Michael Moore: Republicans Hate Unions, African Americans

February 21, 2012

Michael Moore accused Republicans of racism in a Monday appearance on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show:

MOORE: They hate anything to do with unions, auto workers, African Americans. There is a racial element to this. There's Detroit, and then there is the rest of us. And I think that Romney, I think the people just—this is— here is what I want to say. President Obama, I mean I have been laughing a lot during this whole Republican thing, and thinking why are we even having an election, Obama’s got another four years. I think that it is a mistake to feel that way. Because I remember us laughing at George W. Bush when he mispronounced things or said things wrong. Santorum was saying this weekend theology, I didn’t mean theology, he said black— I didn’t say black people, I said black. But it’s always code with them. But yet he does mean to get that in there, to say those things. Islamic policies. If he said Obama was a serial killer, they would come back later and say I didn’t say that, I meant he likes cereal. So I think this is going to be very interesting next week in Michigan. And the trees, the trees will be happy with the eventual outcome in November.
