Morgan Freeman: Another Hollywood Useful Idiot?
By: Michael John McCrae
Noel Sheppard reports (23 Sep 2011) on his â€œNewsBustersâ€ website this exchange between Piers Morgan (CNN) and actor Morgan Freeman:
[Piers] MORGAN: Does it unnerve you that the Tea Party are gaining such traction?
[Morgan] FREEMAN: Yes.
FREEMAN: Well, it just shows the weak, dark, underside of America. Weâ€™re supposed to be better than that. We really are. Thatâ€™s, thatâ€™s why all those people were in tears when Obama was elected president. â€œAh, look at what we are. Look at how, this is America.â€ You know? And then it just sort of started turning because these people surfaced like stirring up muddy water.â€
Now I find I am part of the â€œweak, dark, underside of Americaâ€ swimming up from the â€œmuddyâ€ depths! It is not enough that I am a â€œbarbarian hobbitâ€ that wants to â€œhang blacks from treesâ€. All I ever did was agree with the TEA Party that government is too darn big. That President Barack Hussein Obama is a liberal socialist who is stealing the prosperity of future American generations by throwing the nation into a 16 trillion dollar, unsustainable debt. Mr. Freeman thinks I hate Barack Hussein Obama because heâ€™s black! Gee. I wish Mr. Freeman wasnâ€™t so stupid. I like him as an actor. As a political commentator he seems to be just as big a liberal idiot as Maxine Waters. You remember her. Sheâ€™s the liberal Obama sycophant who screamed of the TEA Party: â€œThey can go straight to hell!â€
I enjoy Morgan Freeman as an actor. I believe he chooses his parts carefully and is very adept at his craft. However, his political opinions reek of the same excrement as any other Hollywood leftist or liberal socialist politician. Mr. Freeman wears his political blinders well. He sees black. That is all he sees. He doesnâ€™t see the economic damage Barack Hussein Obama has caused the nation. He probably doesnâ€™t care much about the fifty percent unemployment rate for black teenagers in Washington, D.C. Nor does he care about the national black unemployment rate of 25 percent. As long as Mr. Freeman can still enjoy his Hollywood millions he is free to condemn the TEA Party efforts to force government to rein in spending. He is â€œunnervedâ€ that there are people of his own generation can see through all the socialist hype of the Obama Administration; wanting to correct it.
Mr. Freeman is certainly not alone in his condemnation of the TEA Party, but his personal credibility is diminished with his acceptance of liberal mediaâ€™s portrait of TEA Party patriots as â€œhobbitsâ€. It is Obama who has divided the nation. His policies have drawn a racial divide more astute than any other modern president. His indifference to the illegal immigration crisis of America has resulted in Hispanics becoming a larger minority than blacks. Democrats are courting this now larger Hispanic voting bloc; ignoring blacks; believing the blacks are a given at the ballot box. Mr. Freeman sees none of that, nor does he care. He is more â€œunnervedâ€ by a conservative grass-roots organization trying to stem the tide of liberal socialism.
Well, Morgan Freeman is entitled to his opinions. He is completely wrong, but he is entitled to shower his ignorance on anyone willing to listen. We are supposed to be â€œbetterâ€ than socialist Europe. We are supposed to be â€œbetterâ€ than Russians, Communist Chinese, Venezuelans, Zimbabweans, Arabians and any other nation you care to mention. America held that number one position for quite a few decades. Under Obama we have lost trade status, economic status, and world diplomatic status. Under Obama we are losing domestic tranquility, cultural morality and are falling into religious animosity. I suppose Morgan Freeman likes things that way and will continue to support the liberal, socialist narcissist-in-chief.
Now thatâ€™s truly â€œunnervingâ€.
