Michael Moore: ‘Disturbed White Males’ Are Most Dangerous People in the Country

Addressing last week’s mass shooting at the University of California’s Santa Barbara Campus, filmmaker Michael Moore asserted that the US is plagued by gun violence because of “a climate of fear and paranoia and weak gun laws that enable disturbed white males to get their hands on deadly weapons.”

On his Facebook page, Moore wrote “with due respect to those who are asking me to comment on last night’s tragic mass shooting at UCSB in Isla Vista, CA – I no longer have anything to say about what is now part of normal American life.”

And then he wrote a lengthy Facebook post on the topic.

“Everything I have to say about this, I said it 12 years ago,” Moore writes. “We are a people easily manipulated by fear which causes us to arm ourselves with a quarter billion guns in our homes that are often easily accessible to young people, burglars, the mentally ill and anyone who momentarily snaps. We are a nation founded in violence, grew our borders through violence, and allow men in power to use violence around the world to further our so-called American (corporate) ‘interests.’ The gun, not the eagle, is our true national symbol.”

If you stand between Michael Moore and a buffet table, he's the most dangerous man in the world!

Speaking of himself of course. What a jerk.

It has nothing to do with his prescriptions? No. Has nothing to do with being subjected to brainwash type, liberal, agenda throughout his school? No. Guns? Yep. White? Yep.

Ok, Michael. Here, have this pizza. Omnomnomnom.

Disgraceful article. No one should ever talk to this man again. He got his money, let him rot.

I don't know who is more ignorant, Michael Moore or the idiots on here more concerned with his weight than his ideals. It has nothing to do with guns. The kid drove over people with a car as well. Guess we should outlaw vehicles now too. And he stabbed his roommates. So we should confiscate all kitchen knives. This is all about mental illness, and his parents failure to recognize and address it.

I am assuming he was including himself in this particular group?

318-His ideals are for sale. That's why he's a schmuck. I'm only concerned about his weight since it's obvious cost on the rest of our society. He takes too much bacon, and over the course of his sad life, will cost our healthcare system too much.

Sounds like you are more of a soft hearted liberal than not.

You are a fence rider and we don't need you on our side.

I can't stand Moore, however I do agree that white males are the most dangerous. Throughout history they always have been. IMO they also suffer the most screwed up heads. Other races don't do the crap white guys do as often.

I am more scared of a pale 16 year old nerd kid (shooter kid I call them) who look like they have never left the house, than the little thugs running around everywhere.

The thugs have a target most times. If you mind your business you won't have no problem with them. Those little white kids, are crazy and hate everyone breathing and just want to take us all out for our very existence.

10:48...where the heck have you been living? More afraid of a 16 year old "nerd" than a "little thug"? Here's an experiment.
Walk down Church St, or West Rd (if you are white) at midnight on Friday night. Act like you are "minding your own business".
I'd give you the second part of that experiment, but you wouldn't survive to perform it.
And "other races don't do the crap white guys do as often"?
Have you EVER looked at the chaos, murder, pillaging, mutilation, and violence in just about EVERY country in Africa? The entire continent. Black people cutting the hands off an entire village of boys? Females getting circumcised by black males?
If you're black, I'll bet you holler "RACIST!!" every time someone calls obama a idiot goofball, but have no problem saying "Those little white kids are crazy and hate everyone breathing...."????
LOL.

I'm talking about American men and kids. Not African. The black people in America are NOT AFRICANS. They are Americans.

And yes I understand that it would be dangerous for me to walk down Church street in the middle of the night, but I wouldn't do that now would I. NO. But I would go to a park or my kids school or the mall and risk a much greater chance of being killed by a pale ass white kid that cannot handle his emotions than some thug kid.

I love the great lengths and exaggerations people come up with to justify their argument.

This is absolutely hilarious, thanks for a good laugh. I call ignorance as I see it, no matter which side of the "aisle" it resides on. You can call me whatever you want. It's that exact "me vs. you" attitude which is a main reason our country is in the shape it's in.

And I can assure you, whatever "your" side is, I don't wish to be on it.

2:52.....you mentioned " throughout history" and "races". Not once did I see you specify "America". And please be specific about what I exaggerated.
I'm surprised at the fear people feel over isolated and random incidents.
There are 300 MILLION guns in the country. Somewhere in the vicinity of 160-180 million gun owners. And you are afraid of going to the mall because every once in while some deranged maniac shoots some poeple? Trust me (and this is a FACT, by the way), your "little thugs" do more murder, mayhem, and crime than ALL the gun owners combined. Real gun owners, not the "little thugs" that broke into a house and STOLE their guns.
I also admire the way "little thugs" control their emotions, too. You know, killing other little thugs over their uncontrollable desire for someone else's jacket or shoes. REAL self control going on there.
