Two weeks from today, on December 18th, it’s the home video & digital release of FAHRENHEIT 11/9! DVD, iTunes, OnDemand. “The most urgent film of the year,” brought to you in time for Xmas (and in time for a brand new Congress) by our friends at Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Happy Rosa Parks Day. 63 years ago today she refused to move to the back of the bus. And that was that. The road continues. Some day this will be a national holiday celebrating how 1 person taking a stand can make a difference. Like all the women who ran for office & won Nov 6th!
In honor of Mississippi electing a racist ignorant Trump lackey to the US Senate tonight, I present you with a video treat from our trip to Mississippi on my 1995 NBC show, TV NATION. Mississippi, in ‘95, had finally decided to become the last state to ratify the 13th amendment to the US Constitution, outlawing the slavery of human beings — 130 years after the end of the Civil War. So our correspondent, Rusty Cundieff, went to Jackson, Mississippi, before they outlawed slavery to buy himself some white people to have as his own slaves. (The link to watch this piece is located in my Instagram bio! Enjoy!)
When I wake up now in the morning as my alarm goes off on my phone and the screensaver showing the election results of every congressional district in Orange County California lighting up with all that blue so bright and blinding I reach to pull the shades down in the room but the map stays so brilliantly blue there’s nothing I can do so I jump out of bed and start singing a mashup of LA LA LAND’s “Another Day of Sun” and Frank Zappa’s “Son of Orange County” and in doing so I give great thanks to the over 3 million Orange County souls who live in what was once the literal HQ of American conservatism, the Republican Party and the birthplace of Richard Nixon where all seven of its Congressional districts bled hard-core RED for decades but NOW every single Republican congressman has been removed and replaced with nothing but equality for women demandin’, minimum wage-raisin’, climate change-believin’, Wall Street bank-regulatin’, gun-controllin’, new immigrant-lovin’, mass incarceration-endin’, infrastructure-repairin’, universal health care Democrats — and I take great peace and comfort knowing that my president wakes up the same way too, to the same old and awesome red white and beautiful BLUE.💙

My sister teaches in Chico, CA. Well, not for the past week or so. So many people missing, many dead, thousands of homes gone. Please help the efforts to house and feed those who have nowhere to go. I am pitching in. Click & donate: https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/WildcatsRise/AnneMoore
