The radically left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore just gushed over failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, saying that we need one of her “in every state.”
Moore said this on his podcast Rumble during an interview with fellow liberal filmmaker Raoul Peck, who praised Abrams as a political pioneer in fighting what he described as an American “machine” built on “genocide” and “slavery.”
“One extraordinary lesson we can learn is what Stacey Abrams and all her companions did in Georgia,” he said. “People should learn from that, because that’s the way to go. …. It was ten years of a hard work, house-per-house, person-per-person, they had to convince people, they had to really educate, and they had to lose sometimes. So that’s the price we will have to pay that we need to pay if we really want changes.”
We need a Stacey Abrams in every state,” Moore replied, at which time Peck interjected, “In every street, in every neighborhood.”
Moore then said there needs to be more “people in the streets” to protest against “white supremacy” in this country.
“Twenty to 30 million Americans in the streets last summer and fall was something that had never happened in this country before,” Moore said. “My hope is … these boots on the ground, when people realize we’re not going to affect change simply by writing our member of Congress or tweeting or Facebook — but not that you shouldn’t do those things — that is not enough, because this is a big fight.”
This comes days after Abrams was asked in an interview if she hopes to run for president in the future.
“Do I hold it as an ambition? Absolutely,” Abrams replied.
“And even more importantly, when someone asks me if that’s my ambition, I have a responsibility to say ‘Yes,’ for every young woman, every person of color, every young person of color who sees me and decides what they’re capable of based on what I think I am capable of,” she said. “It’s about, you cannot have those things you refuse to dream of.”
