Harry Belafonte Compares Homeland Security to Gestapo, Calls Bush a Liar
NewsBusters ^ | 1/22/06 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 01/22/2006 5:10:58 PM PST by Only Waxing

Harry Belafonte is at it again. The Associated Press reported last evening (hat tip to the Drudge Report) that the entertainer, in a speech to the Arts Presenters Members Conference, “compared the Homeland Security Department to the Nazi Gestapo on Saturday and attacked the president as a liar.”

The article quoted Belafonte as having said, “‘We've come to this dark time in which the new Gestapo of Homeland Security lurks here, where citizens are having their rights suspended.’” Belafonte once again had nothing but disdain for America’s current president:

If he had to live under the REAL Gestapo, he might change his mind.

Harry Belafonte is a huge gift to the GOP. Why? Simple: He's a vivid reminder of how far out on the fringe liberals truly are. We should be thankful that he keeps spewing this cr*p. He's not doing the Democrats any favors with his moronic ramblings.

Belafonte is a pathetic loser. The man is so filled with hatred of the U.S. that he can't see straight. The U.S. provided the economic platform for him to become very wealthy. I have no idea why he hates the nation so much, but he does. It's really sad to watch a person I'd like to appreciate because of his old songs, melt down.

Harry, if you don't like this opressive regime, move to Iran where there there's certain to be one more to your liking.

Heck, you don't even have to move to Iran. Pick any place that's better and hit the road.

Belafonte makes the worst of the barking moonbats look like well behaved, domesticated house pets. The real reason he is so bent out of shape is that the idea that his "signature" song (Banana Boat, DAAAAY-Oh!) was hijacked prior to the liberation of Afghanistan with the famous cartoon duo of Colin Powell and President Bush beating that drum to the lyrics of "Come Mr. Taliban, turn over Bin Laden, Cruise Missile knocking at your door", et al.

Belafonte is clearly in the middle stages of dementia. Institutionalization is definitely in his future.

Support came from a quarter I hadn’t counted on. It was [Gunther] Grass, speaking in English.

“For the past hour I have had my eyes fixed on the door here,” he said. “You talk about fascism and police repression. In Germany when I was a student, they come through these doors long ago. Here they must be very slow.”

Is this the new publicity stunt? I remember when growing up that stars would stage accidents and even their death to pump up their careers (or was that just in the movies???).

It's a shame when someone that I use to consider fairly talented finds it necessary to say stupid anti-American statements just to get attention.

“Belafonte's remarks on Saturday -- part of a 45-minute speech on the role of the arts in a politically changing world -- were greeted with a roaring standing ovation from an audience which included singer Peter Yarrow of the folk group Peter, Paul and Mary, and members of the arts community from several dozen countries.”

Figures.

The Gestapo wasn't about listening to people's conversations.
It was about ending them.

If Belafonte had to spend one minute living under the oppression of dicators he supports, he would come running back to the Bush "dictatorship" crying like a baby.

I'm sure if he went there and trashed communism or Hugo Chavez,the country's secret police would have carted him off and thrown him in some stinking dungeon with no phone call,lawyer,let alone a fair trial.

Communist Belafonte is cross-eyed and cognitively disordered. Reality and truth elude his ideologically brainwashed mind. He's a useful communist puppet-fool. What a comedy and waste! Speaking in socially/polically unstable South America against the U.S.A. Belafonte is preaching to the typical So.Amer. quasi ruling establishment of Third Reich expatriates and embittered Trotskites.



Excerpt from http://web.amnesty.org -

Democratic institutions and the rule of law were at risk throughout much of Latin America. Political instability – fuelled by corruption, organized crime, economic disparities and social unrest – resulted in several attempts to bring down governments. Most were by constitutional means but some, as in Haiti, by-passed the democratic process.

Political armed groups and criminal gangs, principally those engaged in drug trafficking, had an increasing impact on people’s fundamental rights. Poverty and discrimination affected millions of people, particularly the most vulnerable groups – women, children, indigenous people and Afro-descendant communities.

Positive developments were seen in the vigorous campaigns maintained by human rights defenders, who held both governments and armed groups to account, in defiance of harassment and persecution. Courts in several countries gave rulings that brought closer the prospect of bringing to trial military and political leaders responsible for massive human rights violations in previous decades...

Rotten Banana Trio: Belafonte, Castro and Chavez
Excerpt from http://wwww.vcrisis.com



Hugo Chávez has a death wish
By Gustavo Coronel

19.01.06 | Does Hugo Chávez have a death wish? It sounds hard to believe. With a war chest overflowing with petroleum dollars to buy allies and favors; with apparent total control of all Venezuelan political institutions; with a Congress where his followers have 100% of the seats; with an Electoral Council that has it all programmed so he cannot possibly lose an election; with Harry Belafonte next to him on Venezuelan national television, shouting loudly in his favor and denouncing George Bush as the worst terrorist on earth, this man should be on top of the world. . . . But he is not. He looks and sounds vulnerable...


Chavez might be rational enough to realise that delusional communist Harry Belafonte is not a cogent prop for Chavez's continuing dictatorship.
