So Danny Glover is back in the news, in the only way Danny Glover knows how: by sputtering nonsense he cribbed from a pair of discarded swim trunks he found on the highway.
Here he is discussing the root causes of the Tucson shooting.
Hmmm..I wonder who he’ll blame that on?
“You know, even though we know that this young man is just deranged in some way, there’s the side that drove him to that act, with the kind of vitriol, the kind of nasty, just villainous violence that is happening. The violence that happened even during, you know, town hall meetings…during the healthcare crisis, the healthcare debate and everything, all this kind of violence.”
Glover calling someone deranged is like the ocean calling someone wet.
Look, we know why he’s doing this. Linking the Tea Party or conservatives in general to Tucson is just the newest way to silence people the left hate. It’s now replaced “you’re racist,” as a way to stifle debate. It sucks, but it’s not surprising.
Anyway, it’s worth noting that Glover is busy promoting a film he coproduced called The Black Power Mixtape. The movie is about, as you can guess, Black Power, an oft-romanticized phenomenon rife with authentically violent rhetoric, much of it leading to authentically violent violence!
Remember the Black Panthers in their commie berets, posing with guns? Or that vicious nutbag Angela Davis, once tried for murder? And of course, there was Huey Newton – a brutish criminal who died a brutal death.
And there’s nothing more heartwarming than little black kids taught to sing, “pick up your guns.” All the new footage came from Swedish journalists, so you know they think it’s cool.
Stick to meatballs, people.
Anyway, out of fear of being perceived as racist, the media always wraps this movement in phony language – rather than condemn it, they say it simply illustrates how divisive the country once was.
So rag on the Tea Party instead. As one idiot reviewer notes, the film “made me think… of how many of the radical statements espoused by the Black Panthers are now being echoed by the Tea Party.”
Well… I guess that means the Tea Party should be expecting better press!
Don’t count on it.
And if you disagree with me, then you sir, caused Tucson.
I announce the winner of the appendix drawing (yeah, that’s a big “draw”)
