It seems that wealthy filmmaker Michael Moore, who, by the way, participated in an anti-Trump rally organized by Russians, is trying to foment violence against the five million members of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

On Friday, he compared the NRA to the radical group ISIS and tried to claim that the civil rights organization is worse than the terror group.  This is, of course, nothing new for Moore, who has a penchant for violent rhetoric and calls for revolution.

“The NRA is a terrorist organization. The media should speak of the NRA in the same way they do ISIS. Total ISIS-inspired deaths in US = 79. Thanks to the NRA & the politicians they buy, we’ve had 1.2 MILLION American gun deaths since John Lennon was shot dead in NYC,” he said on Twitter.

According to Breitbart:

While Moore, many in the mainstream media, and left-wing activists and politicians have blamed the NRA for last week’s deadly shooting, it has been revealed that there were more than enough warning signs — here and here — that, if investigated by the FBI and local authorities, could’ve thwarted Cruz.

As we and others reported, local and federal authorities were given several warnings and there were some four deputies outside the school at the time of the shooting.

Nevertheless, unhinged anti-gun leftists continue to blame the NRA.

Reaction to Moore’s tweet was pretty much what one might expect.


One person even accused Moore of doing Putin’s bidding:

Another posted an image of Moore at the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally:


Believe it…

And one person actually used Moore’s own “documentary” to counter his ridiculous claim.
