Michael Moore: Conn. School Shooting 'What We Are' As a Nation
President Ronald Reagan once looked out at America and called it, "a shining city on a hill."
Far-left filmmaker Michael Moore's take on his homeland in the wake of Friday's elementary school shooting in Connecticut? It's who we are, plain and simple.
“I hate to say it, but killing is our way. We began America w/ genocide, then built it w/ slaves. The shootings will continue-it's who we are,” Moore tweeted on Sunday.
Other Moore tweets from the weekend included:
“A country that officially sanctions horrific violence (invade Iraq, drones kill kids, death penalty) is surprised when a 20-yr old joins in?”
“It's all violence & it's all connected. Why does this happen only in America? The answer is right in front of u. And it's not just the guns.”
“The NRA hates freedom. They don't want you to have the freedom to send your children to school & expect them to come home alive”
