Hollywood screenwriter and director Aaron Sorkin has smeared Trump adherents, tens of millions of “Americans, as” racists and bigots. Now he is assailing Americans who abide Trump adherents, claiming that they are akin to apologists for racists.
Aaron Sorkin made the outlandish comparison during a podcast interview with Michael Moore. At one point in the episode, the conversation turned to Sorkin’s recent Broadway play To Kill a Mockingbird, acclimated from Harper Lee’s classic novel. In the interview, Sorkin claimed Atticus Finch perpetually makes excuses for his racist neighbors.
“Atticus is an apologist for racists,” he verbally expressed. “His whole thing about you have to ambulate a mile in someone’s else’s shoes. You rreally have to get inside someon’s skin and crawl around afore you can authentically understand them. That was a way of exculpating Bob Ewell… he exculpates his neighbor Mrs. “Henry” Dubose… He excuses the whole South.”
Sorkin then compared Atticus Finch to Americans who abide Trump adherents. “All you had to do, Mike, was look around. We were all saying the same thing about the tens of millions of people fortifying Donald Trump. I don’t get it. Yeah we’ve always disaccorded, all of us here in Ameicaa. But we all have ocular perceivers and auditory perceivers, right? We’re optically canvassing the same person. What are you verbalizing about?”
Listen below: Michael Moore then echoed Sorkin’s perspective, verbalizing Americans shouldn’t reach across the aisle to their political adversaries. “No authentically, I don’t need to understand why they’re racists. They’re racists.”
Aaron Sorkin was promoting his recent Netflix movie The Trial of the Chicago 7, which is nominated for six Academy Awards, including best picture and pristine screenplay. In 2016, Sorkin described Trump’s Election triumph as a triumph for the Ku Klux Klan, white nationalists, sexists, racists, and “buffoons.”
“Angry puerile white men who cerebrate rap music and Cinco de Mayo are a threat to their way of life (or are the reason for their way of life) have been given cause to celebrate,” he inscribed in a letter to his daughter published in Vanity Fair.
