A guy at work told me that Michael Moore is a member of the NRA, has been since he was a teenager and does believe that Americans should own guns. I have a hard time believing this. Is there any thruth to this? Can any one validate or disprove this claim. I have not seen any of MM's movies in case you are going to ask.

He's only doing it so he can say "I'm a member of the NRA so I couldn't possibly be in favor of gun confiscations" all the while talking about how to take away our guns.

It's 100% a ruse. It would be like me joining the Democratic Party so I could say how I'm a Dem but I am a conservative.

I heard MM ate the NRA

In one of his movies he says he has been since he was a teenager. Agree with the "ruse" theory though.

He bought a life membership so he could meet with Charles Heston.

MM is a proven liar… a propagandist. Your co-work is a idiot if he does not know this and is referencing MM for anything.

I do believe he joined the NRA when he made his movie... so what if he did.

Again MM is a proven liar. So why would anything he says be relevant.
Link Posted: 10/4/2005 12:04:36 PM EDT
I just wanted confirmation. I know his motives would not be genuin if this is true.

It's his sorry excuse for a joke: what if radical leftist and gun-hater Michael Moore became president of the NRA and used his position to tear down the organization? He explicitly said this in a socialist magazine interview years ago, and also said he's much farther to the Left and radical than he lets on, because he doesn't want people to write him off as an America/capitalism/right wing hater but that's what he truly is at heart. If he's claiming he's a member of the NRA because he's fond of guns and the mission of the NRA, he's lying. Just look at Bowling For Columbine, he clearly detests the NRA, equated them to the Klan, and claimed the Second Amendment is racist and intended to keep blacks in line and oppressed. It's all in that movie, so his claims to contrary is clearly a lie.

Remember, stirring shit up and agitating against the right wing is the only thing he's done in his life. When he was in high school he got elected to either the school board or the city council, and used his position just to piss people off, doing things like proposing to ban the Pledge of Allegance, cut funding for football and pep rallies, change the name of the school to MLK Jr. high so he could accuse anyone opposed of racism, just nuisance measures mainly intended to annoy right-leaning people. The Rotarians or some small businessmen association got sick of his games and got him kicked out of his position of authority. He is very very bitter about that, his exact quote is very nasty and hateful towards them.

He's just a huge jerk who has to lie through his teeth in order to push his agenda that most people would be repulsed by. Then when people call him on it, he says even more disingenuous stuff, like "Hey, I'm just asking questions" or, "Questioning America is the highest for of patriotism there is, I love this country." You dont usually express love by relentlessly criticisng and insulting something and lie through your teeth to exaggerate and make your point. But that's what he does.

It really would be ashame if Michael Moore died.

I believe in "Stupid White Men" he said he bought a life membership and tried to run for president of the NRA to change it's focus to safety.

MM is an NRA Lifetime Member. He bought one when he was making BFC so he would have a better shot at interviewing Heston. At least he said so in the movie. MM tells very few lies. He's good at making people make false assumptions without him saying anything false.

IDK if Moore is anti-gun or not actually, I mean the conclusion of bowling for columbine was basically, "guns don't kill people, white people kill people"

Man, of all the times for one of those pieces of junk to NOT blow up when being fired.

It sucks that he is a lifetime member and I am not.

Atleast he can afford to move out of his parents basement now he still doesnt quite have a handle on being a 40+ virgin though
