“… any illegal immigrant they catch in Arizona, they should let him keep doing his job because he’s adding to the economy. For every one they catch, they should send one Goldman Sachs guy to Mexico.” ~ Michael Moore on Larry King Live, Tuesday, April 27th, 2010.
Michael Moore’s pretty eloquent, here—even I can understand all this stuff, and it’s riveting seeing Goldman Sachs get a small amount of what’s coming to ’em.
“I’m happy the Obama administration brought these civil charges against them but I think there should be a criminal investigation. A lot of people’s money vaporized and I think when that happens — I’ll tell ya, we spend a lot of energy in our criminal justice system going after people that stick you up for a hundred bucks. I think the American people got stuck up for a hell of a lot more than that.” –– Michael Moore on Larry King Live, Tuesday, April 26th, 2010
“I don’t understand Arizona, I mean, I didn’t think it would be possible for them to embarrass themselves more than they did twenty or so years ago when they were the only state that wouldn’t have Martin Luther King Day. This law of theirs, it’s — I don’t know what to say — it’s kind of like — I don’t know if you’ve read the language — my position usually is any time something sounds like dialogue from Hogan’s Heroes, it shouldn’t become law. They can just go up to anyone who looks Hispanic in a state that’s one third Hispanic and demand papers from them. This is not the American way and I can’t believe it will hold up constitutionally. … What is the problem really? Most of these immigrants who come here work very hard — illegal immigrants, they work very hard, they do the jobs Americans don’t want to do. Frankly, I think, I mean, personally, any illegal immigrant they catch in Arizona, they should let him keep doing his job because he’s adding to the economy. For every one they catch, they should send one Goldman Sachs guy to Mexico.” –– Michael Moore on Larry King Live, Tuesday, April 26th, 2010
“The irony of their populist movement against the bailout and the banks and all that — here’s my question and if anybody in the control room, if you have some tape, you can roll it — show me one Tea Party demonstration that’s taken place on Wall Street or in front of a local bank or any financial institution. If they’re really so upset about that, why aren’t they demonstrating there? Instead what they’re doing, they’re running around with placards of Obama with a Hitler mustache on him. It’s a nutty, nutty movement. Here’s what I’d like to see. I’m gonna check this out, too. On Thursday of this week, a bunch of unions across the country have called for a massive rally and march on Wall Street. On this Thursday afternoon, they’re going to meet at City Hall Park and then they’re going to march down to Wall Street. I’d like to see if that gets as much attention as the six hundred, twelve hundred people Tea Party gatherings have received around the country.” –– Michael Moore on Larry King Live, Tuesday, April 26th, 2010
