On Friday, the hosts of Fox News’ “The Five” blasted liberal filmmaker and provocateur Michael Moore for suggesting that white gun owners are motivated by racial fears when buying firearms.
Even the left-leaning Juan Williams found Moore’s comments “unnecessary.” He said adding race into the conversation for no reason distracts from the “reality” that gun control was first implemented as a way to stop blacks from owning guns.
But co-host Eric Bolling went off.
“Michael Moore is wrong. White people who own guns aren’t afraid of freckle-faced Jimmy down the block, and white people who own guns aren’t afraid of black people breaking in or holding them up,” he said. “White people are afraid of moron, idiot liberals like Michael Moore who think they will get their guns taken away because they have a liberal Democrat in office… S0 [white people] go out and they buy guns and make sure they have guns before these idiots have their way.”

Here’s some of what Moore said on Current TV earlier this month:
“I think we’ve been frightened ever since we landed on these shores…We were frightened of the native people, we were frightened of the slaves we brought over — as we should have been. And those in power have known how to manipulate us with fear.”
“We’ve got over a quarter-billion guns in people’s homes. And they’re mostly in the suburbs and rural areas where there is virtually no crime and no murder. So why is that? What are they really afraid of? What do they think of — who’s going to break into the house?”
