Filmmaker Michael Moore paid a visit to the Occupy Wall Street protestors Monday night.

Moore, who earlier in the month voiced his bemusement as to why the Wall Street protestors were not getting coverage on cable news similar to the tea party, told the protestors “It warms my heart to see all of you here.”

“These people on Wall Street ripped off the future of many of these young people here and their not-yet-born children,” he said. “It was the greatest heist, certainly of my lifetime. This protest has to start somewhere, and it might as well have started here.”
