I almost stopped reading the article due to heavy sighing, but it gets to the point: "Rather than continue to waste money on their kids' obviously useless left-wing indoctrination at college, parents would be wiser to fork over their money instead for their precious progressive snowflake to spend a year studying in that socialist paradise, Venezuela. That would be a real education, one that would last a lifetime."

    "Sometimes it's been hard to tell with socialist filmmaker Michael Moore whether he's trolling you or really serious."
    I find this true for many extremists. They make me wonder if it's a game to see how bizarre they can go, if they're trying to make people asses of themselves by accepting ever more outrageous claims, or if this the market for commentary rewards those who can say the most outrageous things and sound believable. I suspect it is the latter.

    I really liked Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine. I did not see the other films. I would never talk to him on camera because he is the master of making people look bad. I hated the part in Bowling for Columbine where he made the nice people at that bank look silly by saying silly things himself and getting them to nod along. Then he made it look like they were they were waving guns around in the bank.

    I think he does it because the formula of making extreme claims with a straight face works in terms of getting attention.
