Michael Moore insults the 'dumb, stupid, ignorant' people of Texas

The Founding Fathers did not know what a bullet was and would support repealing the Second Amendment if they were alive today, according to Hollywood’s favorite anti-gun fanatic Michael Moore.

In the wake of the mass shooting at a Texas elementary school in Uvalde, MSNBC wheeled out the left-wing propagandist who made a series of bizarre claims regarding American history and the founding fathers.

Moore beganWe will not acknowledge that we are a violent people, to begin with. This country was birthed in violence with genocide of the native people at the barrel of a gun.

He continued, “This country was built on the backs of slaves with a gun to their backs to build this country into the country that we got to have. We do not want to acknowledge or two original sins here that have a gun behind the ability behind our ability to become who we became.”

Moore then asserted “I think we need some really drastic action here,” before suggesting “a moratorium” on gun sales.

Then came the real kicker as Moore said “Who will say on this network or on any other network in the next few days? It is time to repeal the Second Amendment”

You cannot say that. Well, why not? Why not?” He continued, before using the argument that the founding fathers didn’t know what bullets were.

I truly believe if Jefferson, Madison and Washington if they all knew that the bullet would be invented — some 50 years after our revolution, I don’t know if they would have written it that way,” Moore stated.

He added, “They didn’t even know what a bullet was. It didn’t exist until the 1830s. They had any idea that there would be this kind of carnage. You have to believe that the Founders of the country would not support it.”

Moore than admitted that he supports “all gun control legislation. Not sensible gun control legislation,” adding “We don’t need the sensible stuff. We need the hard-core stuff that is going to protect ourselves and our children.”
