Self-proclaimed socialist filmmaker Michael Moore took to Twitter to express his excitement after data from the United States Census Bureau revealed a decline in the number of white people in the country.
“From today’s news (8/12/2021): ‘The Census data collected from the 2020 Census was released today — and it revealed that the number of White people in the U.S. has fallen for first time since the first Census was taken in 1790.’ In other words, best day ever in U.S. history,” Moore tweeted.
2020 Census data released Thursday indicated that minorities account for 43 percent of the total U.S. population. In 2010, this number was 34 percent. In the last decade, the adult population has increased to 261 million from 237 million. Within this time frame, the percent of whites decreased by 6 percentage points, as noted by CNN’s Priya Krishnakumar.
“Our analysis of the 2020 Census results show that the US population is much more multiracial, and more racially and ethnically diverse than what we measured in the past,” said Nicholas Jones, senior advisor and director of race and ethnic research and outreach in the bureau’s division focused on population.
Moore is not the only person on the left celebrating the population decrease or displacement of white people. Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized CNN contributors last week after political strategist Ana Navarro described, “Guess who’s got Stephen Miller’s old office. Her name is Susan Rice. And she’s one of us. And guess who is in Ivanka Trump’s old office? Julie Rodriguez, she is César Chavez’s granddaughter.”
“That was on television,” Carlson said. “Think about that for a minute. It’s hard to think about it actually because it’s that evil.”
Moore is well-known for his controversial remarks. Back in March, the filmmaker claimed Republicans are “trying to kill as many Americans as possible.”
