Skip to comments.HARRY BELAFONTE SET TO JUDGE NYC STATUES
Posted on 09/13/2017 12:40:09 PM PDT by heterosupremacist
New York Citys left-wing mayor, Bill de Blasio, has selected his left-wing friend, Harry Belafonte, to advise him on which New York City monuments are so hateful that they should be removed. The singer is one of 18 persons selected to be on the panel which will render an opinion.
Belafonte knows a thing or two about hatred: He is a supreme hate-monger himself, having spewed his vitriol at America, as well as many prominent Americans, for decades.
Virtually everyone concedes that Osama bin Laden was a genocidal maniac, one responsible for the deaths of legions of his own people, never mind thousands of Americans. But in the eyes of Belafonte, the mass murderer is no different from George W. Bush.(snip)
Actually, Belafonte believes Bush was worse than bin Laden. He called the 43rd president the greatest tyrant in the world [and] the greatest terrorist in the world. [Blacks Repudiate Belafonte, National Leadership Network of Conservative African Americans, news release, January 13, 2006].
Colin Powell was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State, but to Belafonte, the four-star general was nothing more than a house slave. Theres an old saying in the days of slavery. There are those slaves who lived on the plantation, and there were those slaves who lived in the house.
You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master. Colin Powell was permitted to come into the house of the master. [Harry Belafontes Greatest Hits]

He’s still alive?
He's 90. Still as red as as Stalin. Perfect choice for New York to judge their statues.
Belafonte is like Obama from age 5 through 13 he went to live with his grandmother in Jamaica...Obama lived in Indonesia...neither lived in American cultural during their formative years...
When will the lefties start demanding America be renamed? And to what?
Why is this of interest to the Catholic League?
I’ll say it again - its funny and very ironic that the marxist in short-pants De Blasio and his friends even have a voice - simply because he is mayor of a city that can only fund itself because it is the financial center for trading in debt and stocks of the USA, skimming earnings off a couple hundred super-wealthy financial oligarchs
More’s the pity....
why don’t we just appoint him as first minster of truth!
Good lord, the sick in the head leading the sick in the head. I do not chose these two to make decisions for me, any time any where. Thank my lucky stars they reside on the opposite side of my country from me.

Good question, I don’t have an answer, but decided to post it anyway!
If these SOB A-holes could,they would take down Mt. Rushmore,Statue of Liberty and every other monument depicting our country that OFFENDS THEM. We are giving the American Republic away without a fight and that is not only incomprehensible,but reprehensible.
Don't mind the maggots.
talk about a man of hate
Was Fidel Castro not available?
Couldn’t get Paul Robeson, a true-believing Stalinist and anti-White racist, so he settled for his clone, Belafonte.
Probably because there are statues of Christopher Columbus and other Catholics in NYC.
For a classic look at the mindset of wealthy NYC liberals, google “Radical Chic” by Tom Wolfe, published in New York magazine in 1970.
Leonard Bernstein, his wife, and their tony liberal friends hosted a fundraiser for the Black Panthers at their Park Avenue digs in Manhattan. The buildup, the party itself and its unexpected repercussions still make for hilarious reading and are not dated in the slightest.
One important difference: the `radical chic’ of today is far, far more antisemitic than in those days.
IIRC, Belafonte attended that 1970 gathering.
