Just like turning on a light switch, Joe Biden pulled out of Afghanistan, and then Kabul fell to the Islamic extremists known as the Taliban. Of course, everyone and their dog in America have weighed in on this issue, including liberals such as filmmaker Michael Moore. Yeah, that guy. Yes, he’s still around, and now he has yet another jaw-dropping comment to add to his track record.
This group of bloodthirsty, misogynistic people known as the Taliban, these people who lop off people’s heads, torture individuals, throw LGBT off rooftops, and behave the way that a serial killer would in the state, are being compared by Michael Moore to – wait for it – SOUTHERN BAPTISTS!
Perhaps surprisingly, there was at least one point in his interview where Michael Moore actually acknowledged his concern that the Taliban were going to erase the progress women had made in Afghanistan (no kidding, Sherlock!), but as leftists often do, he appeared to gloss that over by comparing their behavior to the problems we have in America with “religious fundamentalism” as this magazine put it. Well, comparing the Taliban to Southern Baptists….hmmm…..simply put, my friends, even Jesse Owens couldn’t make that leap, but apparently, the far-left can.
“They’re religious nuts, but we’ve got those here, too,” Moore told Variety. “But [the Taliban] said yesterday in their press conference that girls’ schools are going to remain open. Okay. We’ll see. They also said they are going to operate under Islamic law. That’s exactly how a lot of Southern Baptists want it to be here, too. In a lot of parts of the country, we are following the dictates of conservative Christians. It’s wrong there, and it’s wrong here.”
Of course, Michael didn’t give us any examples where Southern baptists were taking over cities from California to New York, nor did he mention them raping, pillaging, murdering, and rioting (BLM does rioting, but I guess I’m digressing here?) So how he arrived at his comparison isn’t very clear.
Other parts of the interview were fairly telling as well, what with Michael Moore having nothing but praise for the efforts of President Joe Biden despite the administration’s obvious failure in Afghanistan. Furthermore, Michael said that he believes that the fellow Democrat made the right decision regarding Afghanistan.
“Biden will not have one more American soldier die for something that the Afghans don’t even want to die for,” Moore told Variety. “Ninety-five percent of people agree with what Biden did this week, but if you listen to the reporters in the White House press room, you realize that 95 percent of them seem to be opposed to it.”
Moore campaigned for U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders during the 2020 race, but he told Variety magazine that he has been “pleasantly surprised” with Biden in regard to such things as the increase of food stamps, the child tax credit, and other left-leaning causes.
“I am so pleased with Biden,” Moore said to Variety. Seriously, has this man lost touch with reality or what?
