Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore believes that whoever was responsible at General Motors for failing to recall a faulty ignition switch deserves death.

"I am opposed to the death penalty, but to every rule there is usually an exception, and in this case I hope the criminals at General Motors will be arrested and made to pay for their pre-meditated decision to take human lives for a lousy ten bucks," he wrote.

Moore blamed former President George W. Bush's Transportation Department for ignoring the problem in 2007 and praised new GM CEO Mary Barra for telling the truth about the problem.

"Only now, under the newly-configured GM — owned, essentially, by you and me from 2009 through last year — has the truth come out," he wrote. "And my guess is that it has to do with the fact that a mother now runs General Motors."

Moore further cursed the corporate culture at General Motors for failing to acknowledge the problem.

"F*** you, f*** me, and f*** everybody they sent to their deaths. That pretty much sums up their 'culture,' " he wrote.

Moore called for the Obama administration to deliver justice.

"I hope someone in the Obama administration will get out the handcuffs, the SWAT teams, or the U.S. army if need be, march into GM headquarters in downtown Detroit and haul away anyone who is there who had anything to do with this," he said. "And if they already left town, hunt them down and bring them in to face justice."
