The Oscar Award documentary filmmaker and activist said in an interview with Rolling Stones “Useful Idiots” podcast that “white people have not changed” and that people “should be afraid of them”.
What We Know:
- Also, in the podcast, Moore wanted to make it clear that those white supporters are still the same since Barack Obama was elected in office. “I refuse to participate in post-racial America…I refuse to say, ‘Because we elected Obama that suddenly that means everything’s OK…Two-thirds of all white guys voted for Trump. That means anytime you see three white guys walking at you, down the street toward you, two of them voted for Trump,” Moore said.
- Moore also added that he would be the third white guy who didn’t vote for Donald Trump. “We’re traitors to our race, that’s how they see us,” he said.
- Moore wasn’t feeling too optimistic about Trump being a one-term president, either. He expressed it in an interview with Democracy Now published last week.
- In 2016, Moore also predicted that Trump would win the presidency. Moore said, “If the vote were today, I believe, he would win the electoral states that he would need, because, living out there, I will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch.”
In recent events, Moore feels because there is a possibility Trump could lose in this 2020 election, white people are afraid, and because they are worried, it is unclear what could happen, and that’s bad news.
