Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly want Michael Moore dead.
So says documentary filmmaker Michael Moore who has been making the media rounds with his new film, “Capitalism: A Love Story.”
Moore revealed that he's had to hire a security team to deal with what he terms the dangerous “craziness” that Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly have stirred up.
Moore says crazies now want him dead thanks to hateful comments from the conservative talk show hosts Beck and O’Reilly.
“[Beck] said ‘I think I’m capable of actually killing Michael Moore.’ O’Reilly said he’s generally against the death penalty unless it applies to Michael Moore . . . That’s why I have to travel with security,” Moore said.
“I have to put up with craziness that they stir up with that kind of talk. You wouldn’t want to have my life at this point," he said.
Moore also pointed to the “craziness” created by Beck in 2005 when he said on his radio show that he was “thinking about killing Michael Moore.”
Beck said he wondered if "I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it," before concluding, "No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out – is this wrong?"
