‘Hear this, gun nuts’: Michael Moore, Bette Midler just getting started

Michael Moore is speaking as “we” again. Now that the “99 percent” who made up the Occupy movement have become the 90 percent demanding universal background checks, Moore is rallying his army to resurrect the gun control push that failed in the Senate today. Moore did make an effort of sorts; he appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” to incite a Twitter campaign to demand Sen. Harry Reid call a vote on an assault weapon ban, and he convinced Netflix to stream his “documentary” “Bowling for Columbine” for free.

Time for Plan B? The 90 percent demand action! Will they march in the streets like he predicted to Piers Morgan?

.@mmflint 90%? Hey look, I can make up numbers too! 14! 35678! 2!

@mmflint since we are making up statistics, 8261825% of Americans disagree with you. My statistic is more accurate.

@mmflint @abfalecbaldwin If YOU are the majority then why can’t YOUR elected representatives pass YOUR legislation?

— Jeremy Himli (@jeremy_himli) April 17, 2013

Yea that’s why the Dem Senate couldn’t pass it. @mmflint Hear this, gun nuts: WE are the majority. 90% of the country disagrees with you.

@mmflint You know the 90% deal was a lie and not a real # right? It’s not 90%. You are not the majority. Don’t believe your own propaganda.

.@mmflint That 90% BS “stat” you spout is from a study surveying 1,000 people across 3 states…try again. #falseinfo #BSstats

@mmflint Where does this 90% statistic come from? We aren’t gun nuts. Enthusiasts maybe, owners even, But nuts we are not.

@mmflint lies, damn lies, and statistics. According to Gallup, only 4% of Americans think gun control is an important problem.
