Michael Moore Says Christian Conservatives Are Like The Taliban – ‘They’re Religious Nuts’

The radically liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore spoke out this week to compare Christian conservatives to the Taliban. He went so far as to say that Islamic law is “how a lot of Southern Baptists want it to be,” and that both Christian conservatives and the Taliban are “religious nuts.”

“They’re religious nuts, but we’ve got those here too,” Moore told Variety as he discussed his fears about the Taliban stripping away the rights of women.

“But they said yesterday in their press conference that girls’ schools are going to remain open. Okay. We’ll see. They also said they are going to operate under Islamic law,” he said. “That’s exactly how a lot of Southern Baptists want it to be here too. In a lot of parts of the country, we are following dictates of conservative Christians. It’s wrong there and it’s wrong here.”

Moore also stood by President Joe Biden, saying that he made the right decision when it came to Afghanistan.

“Biden will not have one more American soldier die for something that the Afghans don’t even want to die for,” he said. “Ninety five percent of people agree with what Biden did this week, but if you listen to the reporters in the White House press room, you realize that 95 percent of them seem to be opposed to it.”

Moore added that he has been “pleasantly surprised” by Biden.

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

“I am so pleased with Biden,” said Moore.” I was one of the main people out there campaigning with Bernie. I learned during that campaign that they’re actually close. It’s not fake friends. They respect each other. As chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, Bernie has influenced a lot of the things that Biden has done. I have a sneaking suspicion that they talk to each other every night when they’re in their jammies.”

Moore is known for being a radical liberal, so it’s no surprise that he’s standing by the leftwing darling Biden. For him to compare Christian conservatives to the Taliban, however, is over the line even for him.

The only thing that can be said about Mr. Moore is that he is a nut. To compare any modern Christian to the dark ages muslim murderers, is just insane. His ideas about Christianity are about as based in fact as any of his stupid movies. He spins them to his own disturbed view of the world. I would aks him when was the last time a southern Baptist burned to ashes a young girl in the street because of the clothes she was wearing or when was ever did a Christian soldier take a child as a war prize sex slave? If it wasn’t in the 20th or 21sy century then the discussion is over. And I am not even going to say anything about Bernie the Socialist Sanders!

I AGREE w/each one above. Moore, Bernie & All of their Clan should move immediately out of America. You AWs make your money off Americans, you are all Million Aires, have your own security & enjoy what freedoms we have left and then Slam us. Get the hell out and Shut the F up. I do believe in Jesus Christ and I do believe and PRAY that all of you nut jobs will get yours.

Michael Moore is a fanatic POS who doesn’t deserve a public audience for any of his crazy, radical ideas. It’s no wonder he loves the Failure-in-Chief for his Afghanistan disaster.
