Michael Moore's privileged white musings

Ethel C. Fenig
Whiter than white, filthier than anything in the sewer, white privileged one per center Michael Moore tweets his ignorance and contempt of the right. 

An hour and a half after the horror of the Boston Marathon he mysteriously tweeted "2+2=" followed half an hour later by another cryptic tweet "Tax Day.  Patriots Day." 

The next day Moore noted "April 15. The day the Revolutionary War officially ended, Lincoln died, the Titanic sank, Germany bombed Belfast (1000 dead) & GE was born." and ominously  "This is the anniversary week of the Columbine massacre, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Virginia Tech massacre, the Bay of Pigs, and Waco."

So did the plump, Academy Award winner liberal Mr. Moore infer that obviously evil right wingers, enraged by paying taxes on a day devoted to commemorating the American Revolution against taxes, committed the horrific act?  Never having experienced white privilege--my white skinned, dark haired Jewish family and I worked hard for anything and everything we have despite numerous obstacles--I cannot  definitively say.  But it sure sounds like it. 

A few days later, his comforting illusions shattered,  Moore revealing tweets "Frightened to think that an accomplished pianist, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was one of the bombers (according to his coach on ABC News)" 

Ah yes, privileged white accomplished pianists who happen to be Muslim, named after Tamerlane, a vicious Muslim Mongol warrior who was also a patron of the arts,  just couldn't, just wouldn't do anything so crude.  Confidence shattered, Moore subsequently jokingly tweets "I guessed correctly. The bombings were not carried out by women." 

Sexist!

Learning more about the suspects, Moore disgustedly tweets "Two Americans Bomb Boston Marathon" - both Tsarnaev brothers were registered voters and U.S. citizens."  Oh dear!  They come to America as refugees, become Americans and act they way he thinks most Americans, himself excluded, do.  Later he mockingly adds 

"A major American city is on "lockdown", an entire population "in fear". Of one teenager"

But as David Sirota can attest, all of Moore's privileged white--and liberal (the key) musings will only bring him greater acclaim.
