Michael Moore’s July 4th Tweet Inspires Wrong Kind Of ‘Resistance’ Online

Leave it to grumpy radical-left documentarian Michael Moore to unintentionally give his fellow Americans a chance for some online patriotic fun on the Fourth of July.

In a tweet that makes less sense the longer you ponder it, Moore did the thing that the Left supposedly hates: he “appropriated” Independence Day by doing a little revisionist history and rebranding it for the #Resistance:

Happy Resistance Day!
The revolt continues, some 242 years later.
C’mon, people! Let’s finish this!

So apparently we’re still fighting the War for Independence and the “revolt” against . . . our democratically elected president “continues” . . . Wait, what?

And, of course, there were the inevitable food jokes. One example is enough:
