Michael Moore tells leftists to ‘get off the couch’ ‘rise up’ and put bodies ‘on the line’

During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, leftist filmmaker Micheal Moore spoke out against the Trump administration and called on the Left to “get off the couch” and “rise up,” urging them on, saying the movement involve called them to “Put our bodies on the line.”

Moore began by telling host Colbert that Democrats have been too afraid to speak up before and were “constantly giving in.”

“Asking Democrats, who are usually so wimpy and weak, and ‘it’s ok, we’ll take half of universal health care, we don’t need the whole thing,’ that’s how our side sounds all the time. We’re constantly giving in and then a few people want to stand up and say, ‘I’ve had enough. That’s it.’”

Moore does NOT condone violence.

“And we don’t have to be violent. We have to remain non-violent but if the worst that’s going to happen to anybody in the Trump administration, that they don’t get to have a chicken dinner in Virginia, I mean, I don’t know. Listen, seriously, if it were just we had these differences, I don’t think it’s right to throw Sarah Sanders out of the restaurant because I disagree with her politically. If I see her come into my movie, I’m not going to say, ‘You can’t see my movie.’ But that’s not what’s going on right now. We’re not talking about political differences. We’re talking about thousands of children being kidnapped from their parents and being put in jails. …”

Just to correct Moore, there are NOT kidnappings at the Mexican border at the hands of ICE or immigration officials. In fact, President Trump’s executive order violates the California mandate to separate the families in an attempt to keep parents together.

Colbert then asked the documentary filmmaker what the “end game” is if it avoids violence and some sort of “revolutionary confrontation.”

“The despair that I have in going forward and making the movies is when are people going to get off the couch and when are we going to rise up,” Moore said. “The only way that we’re going to stop this is eventually we’re all going to have to put our bodies on the line. You’re going to have to be willing to do this. When I see those children down in Brownsville I don’t see them as somebody else’s children, I see them as my children. Those are my children.”
