How Michael Moore Dog-Whistled Trump Victory

A dog whistle is a high-frequency sound that dogs can hear but regular people can't. In politics, it's using coded language that means one thing to average listeners but contains a secret message targeted to specific listeners.

The socialist documentary filmmaker Michael Moore was a prominent voice from the podium at the Women's March on Washington January 21, 2017. Yesterday he was calling the Trump administration a 21st century coup.

But is it possible that Michael Moore himself may have played a key role in the trick of state that brought Donald Trump to power? Let's look at the evidence:

On the eve of the Democratic National Convention last July where Hillary Clinton would receive her party's nomination, Michael Moore published his article 5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win. The dog whistle sounded to most of us then like a warning about how Trump could win but it reads now like a call to action:
"And now The Outsider, Donald Trump, has arrived to clean house! You don't have to agree with him! You don't even have to like him! He is your personal Molotov cocktail to throw right into the center of the bastards who did this to you! SEND A MESSAGE! TRUMP IS YOUR MESSENGER!"
And who was the target subgroup? Michael Moore explained that too:
"I believe Trump is going to focus much of his attention on the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes - Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin."
Those are exactly the states that turned to Trump on election day 4 months later in November. That's mighty prescient of Michael Moore if it was a prediction. But consider that the prediction may have caused the result, because Michael Moore's fellow socialists in those states heard his dog whistle and voted for Trump to give him the electoral victory.

Bernie Sanders, the socialist candidate for the Democratic Party nomination, had just spent 15 months running down the presumptive Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. The timing of Michael's article picked up right where Bernie left off. Now, Michael Moore couldn't and didn't come out and support the ultimate capitalist candidate Donald Trump overtly. That would have cost him his left-wing credentials. He found another way.

Michael Moore administered his coup de grace to Hillary Clinton's campaign in late October right before the election with his Biggest F*ck You Ever Recorded in Human History speech:

But look more closely at exactly what he said:
"Corporate America hates Trump. Wall Street hates Trump. The career politicians hate Trump. The media hates Trump, after they loved him and created him, and now hate.

Thank you media: the enemy of my enemy is who I'm voting for on November 8.

Yes, on November 8, you Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, all the Blows get to go and blow up the whole goddamn system because it's your right. Trump's election is going to be the biggest f*ck you ever recorded in human history and it will feel good."
That's right, connect the dots in that quote, Michael Moore said he was going to vote for Donald Trump. Politics certainly makes strange bedfellows. So what was Michael Moore really doing at that march in Washington, DC on inauguration weekend? Basking in the glow of his crucial role in the Trump victory coup.

Update: If I were conspiracy minded, I might wonder just who blew that whistle. Could it be that the socialists Michael Moore and WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange were in cahoots with their old KGB Colonel Validmir Putin?
