In Face of ‘Capitalist’ Criticism, Michael Moore Remains Silent for Now

MMFlintTwitterPoint Web browser to @MMFlint… Refresh after seeing no recent tweet(s)…. Repeat.

That’s been our intermittent routine here at FishbowlNY HQ (a.k.a Chris & Me) as we await Moore’s comeback to a massive amount of media and public criticism. The details of the filmmaker’s messy divorce battle, first reported by The Smoking Gun, were picked up with a vengeance this week. It turns out MM owns many more homes in Michigan and New York than most people were aware.

The right-leaning press especially has been relishing this news. For example, the headline over at United Liberty reads: “Socialist Weasel Michael Moore Hates Capitalism So Much That He Owns 9 Homes.”

So… What should Moore’s Twitter comeback be?

  • Real estate is not the message;
  • Several extra homes will be immediately auctioned off, with all proceeds going to inner city, urban charities.
  • Go to hell, or I’ll personally bonk you on the head with my Oscar statuette.

Let us know your thoughts. How should Moore respond?
