Michigander film-maker and controversialist Michael Moore applauded what he says is the “dying out” of white males in the United States. The leftist darling of Hollywood told Fast Company that the demographic shift in the country will redound to the benefit of the Democatic Party. “Nearly 70% of the country is either female, people of color, or young adults between 18 and 35, or a combination of the three.”
Moore said, “The angry white guy is dying out, and the Census Bureau has already told us that by 2050, white people are going to be the minority, and I’m not sad to say I can’t wait for that day to happen. I hope I live long enough to see it because it will be a better country.”
Famed for movies such as “Bowling for Columbine” and “Roger and Me”, Trump appeared to say that President Donald Trump’s supporters are racists. “Here’s another positive thing to look at: Every year 3 million 18-year-olds become adults and [potential] voters, and we raised those kids,” Moore said.
“We’ve raised a generation of kids who don’t hate people on the basis of race, or they don’t hate somebody because they’re in love with somebody of the same gender,” Moore said.
Earlier in August, Moore appeared on CNN and compared Trump’s supporters to rapists. He then tweeted a demand for Trump’s resignation. In March, Moore asked Democrats to declare a “national emergency.” He claimed that Trump and White House staff are guilty of “espionage”.
Despite his earlier support for the candidacy of Sen. Bernie Sanders during the presidential campaign, and his belated endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Moore was one of few public figures who predicted a win for Donald Trump. He described during the campaign that voters in Michigan (which came out for Trump) were disgruntled with the Democratic Party and were seeking a change.
In his interview with Fast Company, Moore again predicted a forthcoming win for Trump. Saying that Trump will win re-election in 2020, Moore said: “I should say re-appointed, because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020.” Moore said, “But he will win those electoral states as it stands now.”
Hedging his bets, while pointing out that Clinton won the popular vote, Moore said: “Here’s the good news: We don’t have to convince a single Trump voter to vote differently because we already have the majority.”
