Response to Fred Sanders (Original post)

5. I will always defend Michael Moore.

He and I are from the same home town, attended the same high school (although not at the same time), went to the same church. I have known about him since he started the underground newspaper The Flint Voice in the 1970s.

He gets it. He has more insight into the minds of people, especially of the ilk who voted for Trump in the post industrial Rust Belt, than anyone else, hands down. How do I know this? Because like him, I grew up with people just like them.

I'm not going to argue about this any further. He gets it, and it doesn't matter where he lives, what he does how much money he has, and particularly what he looks like and how much he weighs. How disappointing to attack his appearance. We are better than that.

Bottom line: He tells the truth as he sees it, and he sees it pretty clearly.

What is disappointing about the threads here on DU about Moore, is that they are a crystal clear Exhibit A as to why the Democratic Party lost the election in 2016... the level of vitriol leveled against him tells me that he has struck a nerve.
