Mockumentary-maker Michael Moore recently released a video featuring mature Americans threatening to burn down the country and physically assault Mitt Romney should Barack Obama be defeated on November 6, 2012. Should he be investigated for inciting violence? Probably not.
But is there a double standard when Ted Nugent gets a visit from the FBI after making incendiary comments, and Michael Moore does not? Furthermore, Democratic National Committee chairperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tried to connect Governor Romney to Mr. Nugent’s remarks, and called upon the Governor to denounce them.
In fact, Governor Romney’s campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul responded with the statement, “Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”
Has Congressperson Wasserman-Schultz called upon her party’s leader to denounce Michael Moore’s offensive video? President Barack Obama was quick to film an apology for Pakistani television in response to an anti-Muslim video made by a Coptic-Christian Egyptian. (In fact, the filmmaker has been sitting in an American jail cell now for several weeks, allegedly for a probation violation, for using a computer and the internet “unsupervised.”)
Mr. President, are you going to apologize for Michael Moore’s video?
