Michael Moore, one of Hollywood’s most noted leftist filmmakers, sent out a grouping of tweets about the aftermath of Baltimore’s Freddie Gray incident calling for the release of all black drug criminals from jail, and the total disarmament of police.
His first, sent shortly after 3 a.m., was a bit incomprehensible: “Imprison u, shoot u, sever your spine, crush your larynx, send u to war, keep u poor, call u a thug, not let u vote. But u can sing for us.”
But his next two, as reported by Breitbart, were much clearer.
Nearly an hour later, Moore tweeted: “Here’s my demand: I want every African-American currently incarcerated for drug ‘crimes’ or nonviolent offenses released from prison today.”
And again, an hour later: “Next demand: Disarm the police. We have a 1/4 billion 2nd amendment guns in our homes 4 protection. We’ll survive til the right cops r hired.”
His tweeted messages come on the heels of almost a week’s worth of violent protests that began in Baltimore but spread to several other cities, from Boston to Seattle to Denver.
They also come as the nation still awaits final word on how Gray died, and why he was injured. Late Thursday, medical officials reported Gray’s head injury was consistent with a bolt inside the van where police detained him.
