Morgan Freeman (idiot) – TEA party members obviously racist

Again, another celebrity that has a problem with the TEA party since they are obviously racists. What else could it be? President Obama is black, and the TEA party wants to ensure he is not elected for a second term … so they want him out because he’s black.

A pathetic display. Video from Newsbusters courtesy Hot Air.

    I must have missed the part where issues are clearly discussed and debated.
    What’s that? I didn’t? There were just unfounded smears that had nothing to do with the Tea Party policies of reduced government interference, lower spending, and personal responsibility?
    I find that hard to believe, but there it is!

    Playing the race card ain’t racist?? Time we start calling persons of his stripe negroes.

  3. RoBrDona on September 24, 2011 at 10:44 am

    There is no rational discourse in America anymore. Our unwashed masses have been deemed too stupid to rationally interpret any in-depth argument. The result is the MSM picking up the insipid regurgitation of Hollywood morons, (most of whom are barely educated) knowing full well that the indoctrinated masses will thoughtlessly eat it up. The thinkers and doers? are not invited to this progressive Goebbels-style propaganda.? ?

    …Therefore, not supporting the Republican candidate, if he/she will be, say, Rick Perry because he is white; Michele Bachman or Hillary Clinton because she is a woman, Mitt Romney because he is a Morman, or Herman (my man) Cain because HE IS BLACK.
    Ironically, I, as a white man & TEA party member,? also voted for a black man in 2008, but the difference was his name, Alan Keyes.? I hate having this discussion and to have to defend myself constantly.? But, hey, in certain peoples’ eyes, I am still a racist.? They can’t understand that I am judging the president on his character and the content of his mind.? I can’t change their ignorance – so be it.
    I am surprised at Morgan Freeman.? I am a fan of his work.? I can say I agree with some of his opinions such as the elimination of Black History Month.? But to grasp at the thought that the TEA Party exists only to vote out a president based on his skin color is ridiculous, juvenile and desperate.? I know Mr. Freeman wants us to be color-blind, my support of my black candidates proves I strive to be color-blind…

    • NH-Jim on September 24, 2011 at 11:55 am

      You see, those that point their finger out at race should turn their finger back at themselves.

  5. Anybody but Obama on September 24, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    Must be why the Herminator won the Florida straw poll today. Today I send another donation off to Herman Cain.

  6. Eric on September 24, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Morgan Freeman should stick to acting… the real world is obviously more then he can handle!

  7. joannabanana on September 24, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    They used up their last card. ??Playing the race card brought race relations back 100 years. ??

  8. crystal4 on September 25, 2011 at 7:13 am

    If you were black, how would you feel seeing all those posters at the tea parties with the president with a bone through his nose?
    Just sayin..

    • Dimsdale on September 25, 2011 at 12:09 pm

      I would probably feel as insulted as the TEA party members falsely accused of using the “n word” to Emanuel Cleaver and company.? Or as insulted as Bush did as a result of the Bush/chimp comparison posters/emails etc. (there was an ?bama analog produced, but it was quickly suppressed, a courtesy Bush did not enjoy).
      I would also like to see those posters (I did find reference to them and emails back in 2009) in anything recent, particularly as an approved part of any TEA party meeting, which is what your post implies.

  9. Anybody but Obama on September 25, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Crystal there you go again, ever attended a rally? Has Morgan Freeman ever attended a rally???Don’t think so.?Your the one who made the?offensive racial remark.? Remember the August 25th Rubio post? Listening to Freeman he said the Tea Party is going to shoot themselves in the head.? Imagine that after what happened to Rep. Giffords.

    • winnie on September 25, 2011 at 5:36 pm

      Oh…I remember that…something about? Rubio being anti-American and how he should go back to Cuba?? Pots & kettles.

    • crystal4 on September 26, 2011 at 7:47 am

      Beautiful, you are proving my point in my above remark.
      When I took the TP signs and substituted Rubio for Obama and Cuba for Kenya, ya went nuts!
      (He should go back to Cuba (Kenya).
      I wanna see his birth certificate.
      Rubio was Pallin around with terrorists,
      Rubio is a communist, marxists, socialist nazi.)
      And the ever present poster with the bone through his nose seen at many events.
      Now I am sure you understand why Freeman would take offense…look how you are reacting!

  10. dgh on September 25, 2011 at 10:51 am

    Crystal4, I would like to see a picture of those posters. I have never called another person a liar. never. I will consider you a liar?until?I see a the posters you speak of. I have been to 4 -TParty rallies in my state and the largest attach against him personally were for the costs of his vacations , a matter I consider of no consequence. Second to that, was his refusal to allow 72 hours for the?viewing?and debate of the TARP Bill and ?O Bama Care.
    How racist is that. ?IF there is one incident of racism at a T-rally, It will be played ad infinitum .

  11. johnboy111 on September 25, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    why does it seem when your career is at a have tons of “money”…ya go nuts?????

  12. Anybody but Obama on September 25, 2011 at 3:39 pm

  13. winnie on September 25, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    Futile, mindless, grasping at straws, lowest common denominator, taking the easy way out? labeling the TEA party “raaaaaacist”…again.? Just another arrogant Hollywood insider lefty whose opinion I could care less about.? You got solutions, Morgan?? Then please, present them without name-calling & without being incendiary in the comments you make.??
    This was just flat out disgusting.

  14. Marilyn on September 26, 2011 at 8:22 am

    It’s not a black man we’re trying to get out of office, it’s a card carring National Socialist.?? President Carter was a card carring as well and we sent him packing. Ditio.

  15. crystal4 on September 26, 2011 at 9:00 am

    Let me say again that I understand where he is coming from, seeing all those signs at the rallies.
    But, he is wrong! Stereotyping an entire group is just wrong!
    (Like some do with Muslims.)

    • Dimsdale on September 26, 2011 at 9:42 am

      Yes, much the way TEA party members are stereotyped.? Or black conservatives.? Or hispanic conservatives.? Or female conservatives.? Or just conservatives.
      Glass McMansions, anyone?
      Still waiting for the pix of those posters, by the way.

    • NH-Jim on September 26, 2011 at 10:13 am

      Gee, Dimsdale, just think of the reaction we would have gotten if we burned him in effigy, wrote how to assassinate, made a movie about his assassination like they did to Bush.?? Hey, but that is OK because Bush was an evil white guy.
      Although, I do have to say the posters of President Obama as the joker bothered me.? My posters have always been respectful despite my total opposition to his positions on everything.

    • winnie on September 26, 2011 at 5:15 pm

      Crystal, exactly how many TEA party rallies have you been to?? The only “racist” sign I ever saw at one was held by an infiltrator calling TEA party members racists.? There were absolutely no signs held by actual members that could have even been remotely misconstrued as racist in nature.

  16. joe_m on September 26, 2011 at 9:44 am

    Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes and Herman Cain are not black, they’re Uncle Toms. There are no black conservatives.?If you disagree with the MSM or the democrats, you must be racist. After all, minorities in this country have done so well under democrat policies.

    • NH-Jim on September 28, 2011 at 4:25 pm

      …Larry Elder, Alfonzo Rachel, Sonja Schmidt, Joe Hicks, CBW, Condi Rice, Thomas Sowell (more libertarian)….I can go on.
      Did I say Herman Cain?
      Herman Cain, Herman Cain, Herman Cain!

  17. Dimsdale on September 26, 2011 at 9:54 am

    The term “useful idiot” comes to mind here.
    Alinsky Rule 5: ?Ridicule is man?s most potent weapon.? There is no defense. It?s irrational. It?s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
    Maybe we should add false accusations of racism/bigotry/sexism/(insert word here)phobia etc.
    Alinsky Rule 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.? Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)
    See where the barrage of attacks on the TEA party from the left are coming from?? Try to find a lefty that doesn’t work an attack on the TEA party into every utterance.

    • kateinmaine on September 26, 2011 at 6:26 pm

      good stuff dims–i love to alinsky libs–makes them spin, flail and squeak–it’s just too easy–not much sport in it .? .? .

    • crystal4 on September 26, 2011 at 8:43 pm

      Had the greatest response, Dimsdale…ya know how I know it was great? It was under moderation and deleted.
      Again, typical right, can dish it out but can’t take it.

    • Anybody but Obama on September 27, 2011 at 7:30 am

      What you think your the only one thats been under moderation and deleted.

    • Dimsdale on September 27, 2011 at 8:20 am

      I think I have shown that I can “take it”.?? Time and time again.? And this is a post of a lefty “dishing out” the talking points, and failing to withstand the criticism.
      As in the case of the “How smart is ?bama anyhow” post, perhaps you “drifted” off topic.? I guess we’ll never know.

  18. crystal4 on September 26, 2011 at 11:44 am

    ?Ridicule is man?s most potent weapon.? Like the pejorative “lefty” and “libtard”?

    “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.? Like calling Obama uppity, arrogant, dumb, nazi, hitler, commie, socialist, nazi, Muslim, terrorist….?

    • Dimsdale on September 30, 2011 at 10:40 am

      “Lefty” is not pejorative, but “libtard” definitely is, as is all the names routinely used against conservatives.? I use the latter sparingly, but pointedly.
      As for the second list, I can only be held accountable for “socialist”, which he demonstrably is.
      The point of my comment, and the post, is that these are tactics used by the DNC and the administration, not blog folks.? It is a coordinated plan, consistently executed, even without the pejoratives.?? Look at the way the liberal media and the Democrats use exactly the same terminology in the same time frame, as they are doing with the TEA party.? Freeman is just a tool, a useful idiot, enlisted to spread the message (as most Hollywood types do).

  19. crystal4 on September 27, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Morgan Freeman to Saul Alinsky=on topic?

    • Dimsdale on September 27, 2011 at 10:23 am

      Absolutely.? When he and other liberals parrot the party line, utilizing Alinsky tactics (which they do proudly), whether they believe it (useful idiots) or not, it is entirely relevant.

  20. pauldow on September 27, 2011 at 10:25 am

    Well, this should add to the Morgan Freeman opinions. 79 year old Freeman has divorced his 2nd wife to clear the way to marry his 29 year old step-granddaughter.

    • winnie on September 27, 2011 at 2:14 pm

      might I say:? ewwwwww


    • Dimsdale on September 29, 2011 at 6:06 pm

      Didn’t Woody Allen catch much grief for doing something similar?

    • winnie on October 3, 2011 at 5:38 am

      Yes, except it was his step daughter and he married her, which I believe is going to happen with Mr.Freeman & his step-granddaughter.? Either way, if I’m not mistaken, it seems that lefty hollyweird types love to buck societal norms and march to the off-beat of their own little drummers.

  21. gillie28 on September 27, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    Sad to see that Morgan Freeman, whose acting I LOVE, is so wrong and (pardon the expression) racist.? Many independents actually voted “that black man” INTO office, and are now sorry they did so.??That’s not racist – it’s?the policies, stupid!!!!

  22. gillie28 on September 27, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    winnie – double that eewwwwww!

    • winnie on September 28, 2011 at 1:21 pm

      simply gacking at the thought…there is so much wrong morally about it and there’s not enough space to list it all.? He can call the TEA party racist all he wants…I’ll call him a predator.

  23. Lynn on September 28, 2011 at 8:12 am

    Crystal, I will gladly take you to a TEA party. I love them and have never seen a racist sign at any of them. BTW you can wear a mask if you don’t want your buddies to see you.? PS. I am with Cain again, but he will need money, if Romney is going to get the Wall Street backing.

  24. Steve M on September 29, 2011 at 9:10 am

    Let me make something absolutely clear to everyone. I don’t delete comments unless they?violate?TOU. We’ve made that quite clear, along with the fact the system itself puts comments in moderation. As a matter of fact, I can’t remember deleting even one (legit/non spam) comment this year.

    I don’t have the time to check the comments section every few days let alone every day. You’ll just have to deal with waiting for your comments to show up. Note that Dimsdale’s comments have been moderated quite a few times in the last month or so and he’s one of the authors here at the blog.

    To crystal4 – I want an immediate apology since I have never – not once – deleted even one of your comments.

    Read the TOU
    Don?t freak out if your comment is held for moderation. Computers take care of the first review and they may be a bit strict. We don?t always have the time to approve your comment right away. Some of our own comments have been mysteriously held for moderation.”?

    • Dimsdale on September 29, 2011 at 4:02 pm

      It’s true!

    • winnie on September 30, 2011 at 6:28 am

      Amen!? No biggie…moveon if you’re held for moderation.? Happened to me a couple of times and made me cock my head a bit, but never once thought there was a conspiracy afoot.?

    • Dimsdale on September 30, 2011 at 10:41 am

      For the record, one of my comments to this post is held for moderation as we speak (well, read).

  25. gillie28 on September 30, 2011 at 3:49 am

    Crystal, I’m going to comment on your comment: “…freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.? Like calling Obama uppity, arrogant, dumb, nazi, hitler, commie, socialist, nazi, Muslim, terrorist?.?”
    How can you possibly equate being concerned about Obama’s socialist-leaning policies with some of the other terms you attribute to posters on this blog?? You are trying to equate decent, concerned people, who sincerely want the best for this country, with radical bigots, and I (for one) am outraged and find some of your personal remarks quite slanderous.? Your obvious hatred for those who disagree with you politically has colored your judgement and objectivity.? It takes away from any real debate and certainly does nothing to enhance or convince anyone of your political positions.

    • winnie on October 3, 2011 at 5:47 am

      Gillie, I’ve given up on any type of debate with individuals who label all conservatives “racist”.? How can you have intelligent conversation/debate with someone who constantly points their finger and yells “RACIST!” when they get their “panties in a bunch” because you point out that the president’s policies stink?? It’s offensive and irritating and all that keeps going through my mind is this, from The Wizard of Oz:? “You have no power here!? Be gone before someone drops a house on you, too!”

      And that was very gracious of -os to apologize to Steve when she was clearly in the wrong.? Guess we all knew how that would turn out.
