Danny Glover channels Pat Robertson

Let's see if Mr. Glover's idiotic comments come under fire as quickly and broadly as Mr. Robertson's did... the money quote comes around the 1:50 mark or so:


"When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I'm sayin'?"

Steve Green:

Is this an attempt to deflect away and avoid Rush Limbaugh's latest asshattery and embarrassment?

FAIL.

In the race to say something stupid about the tragedy in Haiti, the competition has been fierce. A proud British entry, John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, spent a full five minutes yesterday waffling on the Today Programme in response to an increasingly bewildered John Humphrys asking him how he reconciled belief in a loving God with the devastation. Then another man of the cloth, US Christian fundamentalist preacher Pat Robertson, weighed in with a history lesson: back in the 19th century, the Haitian people "got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you'll get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, OK it's a deal."

And while it is easy, and even necessary, for the sake of sanity, to remind ourselves that Pat Robertson is a deluded old man who also thought that the attacks on the World Trade Centre were divine retribution for the legalisation of abortion and gay marriage, and that Hurricane Katrina was just God's way of evening up the score after too much bonne temps roulez on Bourbon Street, the same can't be said of the most promising entrant so far in this dismal race to the bottom. Rush Limbaugh may be a recovering painkiller addict, but he's also the chief ideologue of the Republican party in the US. With his fellow shock-jock Glenn Beck, Limbaugh has waged a fierce and largely successful campaign to drive the few remaining moderates out of the party. So when he says that Americans should feel no need to contribute to Haitian Earthquake relief, since "We've already donated to Haiti. It's called the US income tax," it matters.

Limbaugh has his own pathology, and you don't have to be Sigmund Freud to think that a man in whose luggage DEA agents found a bottle of Viagra on his way back from a trip to the Dominican Republic might have picked another way to express his disdain for the Haitian people than by observing last year: "Haiti? You can't even pick up a prostitute down there without genuine fear of Aids." But crude racism - the same crude racism that scotched Limbaugh's plans to buy the St Louis Rams football team - is only part of what's going on here.

Racism, the benchmark of right wing politics, rears it's ugly head on a regular basis.

Haitians, people of color, are just the latest victims but Limbaugh and the dittoheaded bobbleheaded racists that follow and defend him

Glover's, Limbaugh's and Robertson's words are so not helpful. Wrong place, wrong time, wrong words. All of 'em just need STFU and raise money. The politisizing and proseltizing can wait....

SCSIwuzzy:

Steve, you boob... you know the quote that has you outraged is from May of 2009, right? Even at the time, MediaMatters didn't call it racist, they called it an attack on Bill Clinton, who at the time was named envoy to Haiti.
Your fellow traveler at the Guardian had to Dowd the quote to even get it say what he, and you, claim it does.
Full Quote:

Envoy to Haiti? You can't even pick up a prostitute down there without genuine fear of AIDS. This is not Clinton's place.

Skeptic:

Since the core of the earth is several million degrees (by Al Gore's statement), scientists may come to realize that in releasing all of that heat, earthquakes are the number one cause of global warming (that is unless the earth starts cooling).

Progressive nit-wits are being exposed for their fraud and stupidity every day.

bryanD:

I've never typed nor spoken the words "Danny Glover" before. I suppose I considered him intermittently while semi-trapped for 100 minutes while his and Mel Gibson's stunt men spazzed across the big screen amidst a mindless succession of orange Hollywood fauxplosions; running, jumping, yelling, trampolining, running some more.

Now he's babbling. Significant of nothing that I can think of. I do see that Laura of the Lesser Cockburns has a video gig. She makes me sleepy, too.

Rick's topic makes me long for a big fat cuppa joe! Namely, one of JayTea's Lt.Uhura testimonials. Now THAT'S entertainment! (And at least as newsworthy as Manny--I mean, Danny Glover.

Gmac:

Danny Glover can go back to the silver screen, if anyone wants to hire him for a worn out genre that lost it's appeal in the 90's.

Personally?, I'd tell him to STFU, he's fringe material. He's essentially letting his inner moonbat off the leash.

Bob:

It's hard to believe Glover topped Robertson's insanity so fast. But it's not hard to believe liberals would LIE about Rush. While I work and can't always hear his show, Rush's web site carries a prominent link to information about the earthquake and how to donate to relief efforts. Assuming that Rush was correctly quoted, he spoke accurately if he said that AIDS has been a major problem in Haiti and that picking up a prostitute would be a life-risking activity. I'm sure Rush would agree that the Haitian people are poor because they have had a series of corrupt and oppressive governments, not because they are black. Painting him as a racist is BS.

Drago:

You'll have to forgive Steve Green. It's very likely he is not a light-skinned guy and has a negro accent.

Steve, as a light-skinned guy without a negro accent, your probably lucky to be spending all of your time serving us drinks.

Perhaps if you were clean as a whistle and articulate, things were have turned out differently.

Alas, 'tis not to be.

What's "racist" about the following green?

Envoy to Haiti? You can't even pick up a prostitute down there without genuine fear of AIDS. This is not Clinton's place.
Can't the same be said of any country whether the prostitutes are black, brown or white?

Not to mention in Haiti "AIDS is now one of the leading causes of death in some of these countries, with Haiti being the worst affected. An estimated 7,500 lives are lost each year to AIDS in Haiti, and thousands of children have been orphaned by the epidemic."

Marc:

Glover, and fat man michael moore, you have a call waiting on the pinko courtesy phone.

Twenty-six patients at a mental hospital died during a cold snap this week, the government said Friday. A Health Ministry communiqué blamed "prolonged low temperatures that fell to 38 degrees," but the ministry also said it was starting an investigation that could lead to criminal proceedings. The independent Cuban Commission on Human Rights said that at least 24 patients at the Psychiatric Hospital in Havana died of hypothermia, and that the hospital did not do enough to protect them because of problems like faulty windows.

Oopsy.
