Danny Glover is Full of It

Danny Glover is full of it. Not just because he's a pompous liberal windbag, either. Here's a few choice stories regarding Senor Glover's public political stance just in case you haven't heard from him since Lethal Weapon 4:

A Fox News story relates Danny's reaction to news of Ronald Reagan's demise:

"We all know Reagan's legacy, from the Iran-Contra affair to the funding of the Nicaraguan military in which over 200,000 people died. The groundwork for the move steadily to the right happened with the Reagan administration. People want to elevate him to some mythic level; they have their own reason for doing that."

A Newsmax story cites Glover as a member of Harry Belafonte's anti-Bush cheering section:

" "Belafonte led a delegation of Americans, including the actor Danny Glover and the Princeton University scholar Cornel West, that met with the Venezuelan president for more than six hours late Saturday." At the meeting, Belafonte referred to the U.S. President as the "greatest tyrant in the world.""

Now ask yourselve's this: if Danny Glover is no fan of Reagan or George W. Bush, why is he a member of the ultra-exclusive Bohemian Grove club, a "secret handshake" club for the conservative elite? Both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush were/are members of this group (along with other Republican notables such as Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush), and in fact news reports as recent as 1999 detail how Danny Glover attended the annual Bohemian Grove summer retreat alongside then Governor George W. Bush:

"The Bohemian Club's Annual Summer Encampment came to a close here Sunday, ending a two-week retreat for the rich and powerful that President Herbert Hoover once called "the greatest men's party on Earth." The club's famed annual gathering has been held for more than 100 years at the 2,700-acre Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, about 70 miles north of San Francisco in Sonoma County. This year's event drew in notables such as former President George Bush, Texas Gov. George W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, retired Gen. Colin Powell, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Dow Chemical Chairman Frank Popoff, as well as actor Danny Glover." (emph. added)

So was Danny just kickin' it with GOP bigwigs to get free stock tips, or are his recent pronouncements really a cover story to ingratiate him with the Hollywood liberal elite? Any way you slice it, he's full of it.

He's really a disgusting wanker. He boarded a plane in San Francisco I was on once. He pranced around with total self-importance, posturing and letting everyone know he was a "star." Without Mel Gibson he'd be a nonentity. I've never been able to figure out that relationship. Of course being in movies together doesn't mean they're buddies.

I view "Lonesome Dove" annually. I bought the DVD just so I could skip the scene where Glovers character gets killed.

(Serious, the whole Family takes the day off to come over and watch "Dads" movie, everyone knows all of the lines we pretty much agree on our favorite scenes and no complaints when I skip right through Glovers big scene)

I feel he deserves an retroactive Oscar for his portrayal of the patriotic CDR Caparelli in "Flight of the Intruder". Years later, knowing that the guy is a maoist makes me reevaluate his acting in the film. Brilliant!

...a retroactive Oscar. I think you have something there about how the Oscars can be turned around!

..."And now for Maoist in a Film of the Year award....."

Best Feminist Screech Film Award goes to.....

Yes, by jove. You DO have a brilliant idea.

I was once a fan of actor Danny Glover. I am not a fan of his political activity. Mr. Glover should look back at his history. If democrats are so great then why are the people that were on public aid when he was a kid, still on public aid. Why are there more people on public aid than ever before. I know the population growth has something to do with it but percentages don't lie.

Mr. Glover if this country is so bad why not leave and live in one of the countries of the henchmen you so support. Adios hermano!
