‘We Have to Take Over the Democratic Party!’: Michael Moore at the Women’s March

While speaking at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. this morning, liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore addressed the crowd and gave them some advice for what they should do when it comes to the Democratic Party in the future.

“We have to take over the Democratic Party,” Moore exclaimed.

He continued, “God bless the Democrats who fought with us. Who’ve done so many good things. It’s no knock on them, but…”

Moore went on the talk about how twice in the last 16 years Democrats won the popular vote for the presidency but lost the election.

“Are you going to let this happen again in your lifetime,” Moore asked the crowd. “I’m not!”

The Roger and Me auteur railed against the “old guard” of the Democratic Party and said that the party needed more people of color and those in the LGBT community to run for office and take positions of leadership.
