UPDATE: Michael evidently is not much of a "Union" supporter when it comes to making movies either. This comes from the NY Post
Michael Moore, champion of the working class, used non-union stagehands to film "Capitalism: A Love Story."
The porcine provocateur is promoting his anti-Wall Street jeremiad by giving free tickets to unions, but the American Federation of Teachers has turned them down because Moore didn't hire any members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.
"Michael Moore and one of our sister unions, IATSE, are in discussions about concerns the union has," the AFT told ABC News. "The AFT has decided against accepting tickets until those issues are resolved." Moore's agent, Ari Emanuel, seems to blame the IATSE for treating documentarians as "second-class filmmakers."
According to Fortune Magazine, Moore’s films have grossed over $300 million worldwide. His highest grossing film was “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which critiques the Bush administration’s handling of the war in Iraq and earned over $200 million worldwide.
Moore reportedly was paid $21 million by Disney for producing, directing and creating the film. Moore also earned 50 percent of the profits of his 2007 film “Sicko,” totaling $25 million plus DVD sales, according to Vanity Fair.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Moore would receive all of the profits made from DVD sales of “Sicko,” sales of which have been estimated at over $17 million.
“Look, you know, I mean, I make documentary films,” said Moore. “So, clearly, I’m not loaded in the way you described. But I do well, obviously because my films do well.”
And what "way" would that be Michael? The "I own a house in an exclusive millionaire community" way? (you do) Or the "I am so rich I own stock in Blackwater" way? (You did and/or still do)
So, I have an idea for you Michael; since Capitalism hasn't helped you in any way, why don't you give all your money to me? Since you aren't using any of that dirty capitalist money, and it hasn't benefited you or your family, I could use a few million to buy that yacht I was looking at and to throw around to the girls at Hooters for their pleasant service and admirable assets. Then you could move yourself and your family to a country that will allow you more freedom and liberty to do your work and make more money doing it. Certainly there must be a country out there with an economic system that would allow you to do all that without having to dirty your hands with all this evil capitalist money you are forced to take from these evil corporations.
What a fucking fat ass hypocrite.... I would punch this fat fuck in the pie-hole if I wasn't afraid he would eat my hand. And in regard to my challenge, I doubt he finds a place that gives him the freedom and liberty I describe...
