Michael Moore is a liberal hack who has skewed the truth and has flat-out lied in order to profit off of a system he says is corrupt. However, he has gained support from many liberals and left-wingers. One more fan: the Muslim Brotherhood.
A self-proclaimed “progressive,” Moore’s championing of pro-Islamic and anti-Christian causes has made him a favorite of the Brotherhood, a radical political party that is currently banned in Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood has reprinted several articles of Moore’s in their entirety, one as recent as this past October. Most of the time, the organization cherry picks quotes in order to bias their stories towards their point of view. However, the articles posted on the Brotherhood’s website, Moore’s letters are re-produced word for word.

The Muslim Brotherhood also quotes Moore in several articles as a well-regarded source. In the article Michael Moore: Woodward Book Reveals That Civilian Control of the Military Is a Joke, the entire basis for the article is a statement by Moore about the U.S. military.
In another article supporting WikiLeaks entitled Rallies Defending the Right to Know – Free Thinkers and WikiLeaks, the MB support Moore. The article states:
But the protestors are not the only ones supporting freedom of expression. Noam Chomsky, Julian Assange and Michael Moore, who is famous for raising awareness of government and corporate corruption, all believe in freedom of expression and they are willing to do something about it. They all support WikiLeaks.
Possibly the oddest article on the Muslim Brotherhood’s website, however, is America needs ‘Moore’ Democracy. In the article, the Brotherhood calls for a democracy in America closer to the one that Michael Moore envisions.
