There is another fat hypocrite in town:
Filmmaker Michael Moore’s bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York’s JFK airport Wednesday night.
Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.
Moore’s 2003 Oscar-winning film “Bowling for Columbine” criticizes what Moore calls America’s “culture of fear” and its obsession with guns.
*** Update ***
Nothing to discuss. The story is false.
It’s the Dianne Feinstein school of thought.
“A gun for me but none for thee.”
Amusing, but did he really call for the banning of guns? I thought the ‘culture of fear’ thing was the real point of BFC.
So what is he afraid of and why does his bodyguard have a gun.
Even more importantly, what is Moore’s opinion on gun license reciprocity? Moore is caught in a bind now if the center-right is smart enough to pull the trigger. He either gets to support reciprocity, make a statement that shows he’s evolved from Bowling for Columbine and his concern for the little guy just earning a salary is real, or he can say that the guy who is paid to take a bullet for him should be in jail, showing that his anti-gun ideology trumps his humanity and compassion.
He’s not going to be put in that position if all that happens is we all cry hypocrite.
the obvious response is that regular folks don’t really have anything to be afraid of – they’re just scared of black people because the GOP tricked them.
On the other hand, Moore has legitimate concerns due to the repeated threats on his life.
I’m gonna wait until more details come out, in case this is another “lefty protestor attacked US serviceman outside bar” story.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Moore had an arnsenal the size of Springfield in his basement considering his fan base. Just another Leftwingnut hypocrite.
the friendly grizzly
I have asked this in other blog sites: has anyone actually ever seen Moore and O’Donnell together at the same time?
Just typical of these gun control weenies i mean they dont want anyone to protect themselves with a gun but becuase they think their so damn holyer then thou they think they are so damn privlaged to have their own armed body guards why dont these rich left-wing eletists just go take a hike and get lost
