Hollywood wants people to see America as a dystopia – or so it seems in one new music video. In a music video released by Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) called This is America, the artist came together with four other rappers to apparently reveal the bleakest aspects of America. Feted by the media as “powerful” and a “masterpiece,” the May 5 video portrays riots, violence, a church choir shooting, drug abuse, suicide, and fear, while Gambino/Glover raps in the background, “This is America.”
Communist dictator Fidel Castro executed hundreds and exiled thousands over the course of his reign. But that’s not what celebrities and the liberal media are remembering the Cuban dictator for, following his death on November 25. Actor Danny Glover, a frequent guest to Castro’s Cuba, tweeted, “Fidel Castro was a great revolutionary. Learn more about his life & legacy.” In the tweet, he linked to an article detailing a roundtable discussion on the “Cuban revolutionary leader.”
In a Huffington Post article on Monday, actor and liberal activist Danny Glover lunged at New York Times columnist Paul Krugman for his “one-man war against Bernie Sanders” “in column after blog post after column,” especially when he went “over the edge” in an article on Friday.
“It is interesting that he has chosen to repeatedly smear Bernie, ad nauseum, rather than try to promote qualities about Hillary Clinton or her record,” Glover stated before noting that Krugman “really owes Bernie and his millions of voters and supporters an apology” for his most recent column.
Liberal celebrities finally did something useful: they proved that it’s easier to support socialism when you have toilet paper and electricity.
Wealthy Hollywood-types have the luxury to fawn over Venezuela and its authoritarian leaders, but many Venezuelans do not have share this rosy perspective. Reuters reported that anti-government activists have taken to the streets in protest against President Nicolás Maduro’s socialist regime. Several people have been killed, including a beauty queen.
A group of far-left Hollywoodans has signed a petition asking Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa to grant National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden asylum.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this includes Oliver Stone, John Cusack, Roseanne Barr, and Danny Glover.
What is it with Hollywood personalities going to
On Oct. 7, at an appearance at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C. promoting her book “You Know I'm Right: More Prosperity, Less Government,” the proudly libertarian co-host of CNBC's “Power Lunch” Michelle Caruso-Cabrera explained how this could happen. She told an audience that Chávez has a very charismatic, yet seductive personality.
“I was telling – my two most interesting interviews I think I’ve ever done are Milton Friedman, very influential on me, and also Hugo Chávez, because when I interviewed him I was struck by how much I like him,” she explained. “He’s very funny. He is so charming. He is smooth. He could be a stand-up comedian. He is a seductor, as I suspect most dictators are – that’s how they get to where they are.”
At the “One Nation Working Together” rally in Los Angeles on Saturday, actor Danny Glover took the podium. Judge for yourself the coherence and importance of his message:
Outspoken actor Danny Glover was booed on Saturday for, amongst other things, not putting his hand over his heart during a flag ceremony prior to his commencement address at Utah State University.
As reported by the Salt Lake Tribune:
During the color guard presentation of the American flag, a spectator yelled across the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum, "Put your hand above your heart, Glover!"
Not surprisingly, Glover said he doesn't typically show what most consider appropriate respect to the flag during such ceremonies, and he doesn't see anything wrong with it (h/t Weasel Zippers):
Last week, far-left actor Danny Glover appeared on tax-supported radical Pacifica Radio to stump for returning Marxist ex-leader Jean-Bertrand Aristide to Haiti. In his political role as the chairman of the leftist TransAfrica Forum, Glover not only attacked the Obama-led U.S. government for obstructing this natural return of the "savior." He attacked the black government of South Africa for being in some sort of conspiracy with America to keep Aristide out:
AMY GOODMAN: President Aristide in South Africa, right after the earthquake. Danny Glover, what did he tell you now? Why isn’t he returning to Haiti?
DANNY GLOVER: Well, he’s mystified by that. You know, there’s been several calls for him to return. His party still -- the Lavalas is still the largest party, that’s not participating, that’s not active in the electoral process. And yet, he’s dismayed by that, the fact that both -- it seems as if the South African government and the United States are complicit in his not returning to the hemisphere. Now, that’s certainly --
On Friday’s The O’Reilly Factor, FNC’s Bill O’Reilly responded to left-wing actor Danny Glover’s recent comments blaming Haiti’s problems on the U.S., invoking America’s failure to reach an agreement at the Copenhagen summit on climate change. In his show’s "Talking Points Memo," O’Reilly recounted the relatively small amount of aid pledged so far by a number of nations, in comparison to the $100 million America has already pledged to Haiti.
Later, during a segment with Columbia University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, after Hill had made his best guess at interpreting what Glover meant in his remarks, O’Reilly took particular exception with the liberal actor praising Venezuela in the same statement in which he condemned America, reminding viewers that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez had only pledged one plane full of aid to Haiti. O’Reilly: "I got a kick out of Glover, who's a big friend of Hugo Chavez, saying that Venezuela is one of the countries on the point of attack. As you may have heard in the ‘Talking Points Memo,’ Venezuela has sent exactly one plane full of stuff – one – one plane to Haiti."
During the show’s "Talking Points Memo," after relaying that President Obama had so far pledged $100 million in aid, O’Reilly informed viewers of aid pledges at that point made by several other nations:
In a movie role miscasting that would be akin to picking Michael Moore to portray George W. Bush, a new flick that is starting production soon will feature an unlikely actor as the president of the United States of America. Leftist activist, and virulent anti-American Danny Glover has been tapped to star as a U.S. president that will be confronted with a "global cataclysm" in the film "2012."
There's a "cataclysm" alright. That such a U.S. hater would be picked to star as the occupant of the White House is as big a disaster as can be imagined. It is just amazing how Hollywood likes to stick their fingers in the eyes of the American public. Of all the actors in LaLaLand that they could pick to take the role of POTUS, they have to pick Glover, one of the worst anti-Americans in the business. And in a business over flowing with folks with anti-American ideas, that is really saying something.
