• Michael Moore Protests Outside Trump Tower: ‘We Are All Muslim’

    Filmmaker Michael Moore stood outside Trump Tower holding a sign reading “We Are All Muslim”on Wednesday before penning an open letter to the Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Facebook.

    Moore claimed in his letter that the billionaire businessman asked him not to “go after” him when they met on a talk show in 1998.

    “I thought, what are we, in 3rd grade?” Moore wrote. “I was struck by how you, a self-described tough guy from Queens, seemed like such a fraidey-cat. You and I went on to do the show. Nothing untoward happened between us. I didn’t pull on your hair, didn’t put gum on your seat. ‘What a wuss,’ was all I remember thinking as I left the set.”

    Moore claimed that Trump is now similarly afraid of Muslims for  proposing a temporary ban on all Muslim immigration to America “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

    “And now, here we are in 2015 and, like many other angry white guys, you are frightened by a bogeyman who is out to get you. That bogeyman, in your mind, are all Muslims. Not just the ones who have killed, but ALL MUSLIMS,” he wrote. “Fortunately, Donald, you and your supporters no longer look like what America actually is today. We are not a country of angry white guys. Here’s a statistic that is going to make your hair spin: Eighty-one percent of the electorate who will pick the president next year are either female, people of color, or young people between the ages of 18 and 35. In other words, not you. And not the people who want you leading their country.”

    “Leave the rest of us alone so we can elect a real president who is both compassionate and strong,” the filmmaker said in conclusion. “We are all Muslim. Deal with it.”
