Liberal Activist Ed Asner Explains Hollywood Silence On Obama, Syria: They 'Don't Want to Feel Anti-Black
In 2003, ahead of a U.S. attack on Iraq, a robust anti-war movement in Hollywood included a TV commercial starring Martin Sheen and Sean Penn visiting Baghdad. There were online petitions signed by Ed Asner; letters to President George W. Bush pleading for peace were signed by Matt Damon, Tim Robbins, Barbra Streisand and Alec Baldwin; former M*A*S*H star Mike Farrell fronted multiple press conferences where celebrities denounced war. In interviews, Janeane Garofalo stopped identifying herself as an actor -- she preferred to be called a member of the U.S. anti-war movement.

He’s not a lib, he’s a full on commie. Looking forward to his demise.
Cowards and hypocrites all. At least if they had the courage of their convictions, we could better understand and abide them. But no, to them, war is a continuation of political ideology.
For that, I spit in their face.
They sure do know how to trash white folks esp. white presidents they don’t like. That’s okay - it’s in the name of art.
Never before was this quote so appropriate: "Samuel Adams: "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Hollyweirdos have got to be the stupidest people on the planet.
Like most Progressive commies Asner’s priorities put the agenda first and principles are so far down the list they barely make the back cover of his book.
Almost 40 years ago, I was flying back from Hawaii with my family. It was on Christmas day, and there were only 5 passengers, my family, and Ed. He came back to talk, probably wanting to bask in adulation. My Dad completely ignored him, even though Dad was a huge fan of the show. YEAH DAD! I excused myself, and went to party with the stewardesses. Much fun. Poor Ed!
Liberal activist is putting it kindly. He’s a Communist. Same as Sean Penn.
as is the _resident....
When an ultra-liberal douche like Asner starts to get it then you know the curtain is starting to close on this side show of a presidency.

You nailed it very well. The Progressives that I know are very nasty people. One thinks Obama should simply dictate everything. They are very Nazi like.
IOW, they’re typical leftist racist hypocrites.
Obama is now and always has been a clueless Chauncy Gardener!!
Kind of demonstrates the Hollywood libs ARE racist, doesn’t it?
I remember listening to an interview with Asner shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, in which he argued that the ONLY thing wrong with communism is that it’s never been ‘done right.’ Once someone ‘does it right’ the whole world will want communism.
For that, I spit in their face.
Well said. And I would add "They are racists...they refuse to treat a minority as an equal".
Asher would tweak Obama if given the chance!
“I remember listening to an interview with Asner shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, in which he argued that the ONLY thing wrong with communism is that its never been done right. Once someone does it right the whole world will want communism.”
That’s a laugh!
Obviously, not feeling ‘anti-black’ trumps feeling ‘pro-America’.
Yes, and that's actually what Asner is trying to say here.
Why doesn’t the media ever mention that Obama is mostly white. He was raised white, he was schooled white and his actions toward the black community have been extremely democrat party/KKK white in it’s destructiveness.
Liberals are hypocrites. Nothing new here.
Fuck them all....it’s “hollywood” now....they have no significance, appeal, allure or anything else that the golden age of Hollywood had. In the past, you had John Wayne, the brilliant Jimmy Stewart, Bogart (and I don’t care if he was a lefty,..it’s not like it is today),...I don’t give a damn about hollywood today, and I haven’t for years. I’ve been boycotting hollywood for the longest time now, and I don’t give a damn about whatever “must see” films that have been put out in recent years. It’s all garbage, leftist propaganda crap, and miserably inferior remakes of great past films. These bastards can foam at the mouth with all the commie propaganda that they want...I know that I’m not interested, and neither should any of you Freepers either. It’s not a case of “shut up and act”,...I don’t want to see a damned thing that the sewer called hollywood regurgitates,...ever!! Don’t support the evil hollywood film industry and condemn their shit to complete irrelevance!!!
When Asner goes he's going to Red Square next to Lenin.
The phony, hypocritical bastards...every one of them.
