And the Prison Guards Include the Governments of Canada, European Union (EU) Countries and the Bahamas, Among a Multitude of Others
A Commentary by American filmmaker, author and political activist Michael Moore, from Michael Moore’s Facebook Page

Planning a trip over the holidays?
You do realize the rest of the world has placed us in our own private prison, right?
We are now prohibited from traveling to and entering without restriction nearly every single nation on Earth.
Only EIGHT countries will currently let anyone holding an American passport in without any restrictions (no quarantine, no pre-testing, no visa, no nothing).
Here are the only nations you can freely travel to without question or a doctor’s note as an American:
(there are 23 other countries that’ll let some of us in – but with restrictions and quarantines)
We are considered such a major health risk by the rest of the world, they would rather forgo any visits from American business people, bankers, tourists, students, scientists, Walmart executives, filmmakers(!), Coca-Cola salesmen, golfers, relatives – you name it. We’re all a threat (not that that’s anything new).
They have witnessed our abysmal failure to treat this pandemic seriously.
They have watched our ho-hum indifference of doing little while letting 165,000 of our people needlessly die (165,000 dead is the equivalent of fifty-five 9/11s, an incident which made us go nuts with anger, demanding an immediate goddamn response!).
The rest of the world is aghast that we are being led during this crisis by an idiot and a sociopath. To the world we are a plague.
We are dangerous. We are sick. So they’ve locked the gate, pulled up the drawbridge, slammed the door.
Most of us have no idea that the world has put us under house arrest. That’s because the vast majority of us never leave the US our entire lives.
Nearly 60% of us do NOT have a passport. We have little interest in the rest of the planet — and that’s just fine with them.
They’d rather now we just stay home, chanting our national motto (“WE’RE #1!”), and celebrating our God-given right to not have to wear a face mask.

A Brief Footnote from Doug Draper at Niagara At Large –
With national polls continuing to show that the vast majority of Canadians are afraid to open the borders we share with the United States to American visitors, restriction on cross border traffic have been extended again – this time to September 21st, with a high probability that they will remain in place until at least the end of this year.

To watch a recent episode of the self-described “stable genius” in the White House answering a reporter’s question about the soaring COVID-19 death count in his country, and entering us with one of his history lessons about the 1918 (not 1917 you orange-face moron) Spanish Flu, click on the screen immediately below –
