Michael Moore Wants You to Take Over the Democratic Party and Fire All Media Pundits

Michael Moore may have predicted this election result back in July, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t fired up and ready to go. In a long Facebook post titled “Morning After To Do List,” Moore lays out five things he wants to see happen — ideally “by noon today.” First on the list, Moore writes: “1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.” He also wants a revolution in the mainstream media. “Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on,” Moore writes. “Those same bloviators will now tell us we must ‘heal the divide’ and ‘come together.’ They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.”

Moore goes on to say that congressional Democrats must “fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years.” Fourth, he wants you to stop saying you’re “stunned” or “shocked” by the results. Considering he very accurately predicted what would happen, Moore has some ground to stand on when he says, “What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren’t paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair.” And finally, he wants you to say, “HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!” to everyone that you meet today. Well, that seems like a fun one to do.
