Michael Moore: America 'Founded on Genocide and Built on the Backs of Slaves'

In a set of tweets a few minutes ago decrying the shooting of bin Laden, leftist filmmaker Michael Moore attacked the Obama administration for not capturing bin Laden and bringing him back alive for trial.

After comparing Confederate general Robert E. Lee and Confederate president Jefferson Davis to bin Laden, Moore groused, "I'm just saying, I want my America back."

He then added, "I dunno, maybe it never was. We are a nation founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves."
