Skip to comments.Danny Glover on Haiti and Climate Change: We Have to Act Now
Posted on 01/14/2010 12:34:40 PM PST by Berlin_Freeper
With thoughtful insight into the devastation that struck Haiti yesterday, Link TV board member Danny Glover spoke with our friends at GRITtv today to discuss steps forward for the Haitian capital. Glover points out that in this great moment of internationalism, the U.S. has the opportunity to rebuild its relationship with Haiti, and he voices a warning that disasters like this will inevitably strike again as climate change continues.

I apologize for ever watching one of his movies.
The extreme libtard lefty can be added to the “Kiss my arse deeply” list.....
I must have missed that one; how, exactly, does Mann-Made Global Warming cause earthquakes?
I guess he just means that it's our duty to create a global totalitarian state in order to solve every problem in existence.
He's too old for this s&*t.
By all means, help the Haitians in their hour of dire need as soon as possible. But “climate change” has nothing to do with it. The Earth’s climate has been changing for millions of years, with or without us.
“He’s too old for this s&*t.”
But he is certainly stupid enough, and racist enough for it.
Great role. He ‘nailed it’ as they say...
I didn’t know Danny and the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz had so much in common!
Well see, it’s the government’s responsibility to stop earthquakes, all they have to do is raise taxes enough and it will stop the earthquakes.
As absurd as that sounds, Glover believes it!
“he voices a warning that disasters like this will inevitably strike again as climate change continues.”
Ignorance that defies description or comprehension; the man is to be pitied.
Still love him in all the lethal weapon movies
That was a “Lethal Weapon” reference, by the way. But you knew that.
Okay — this is at least as stupid as Pat Robertson’s statement — probably more so!
Climate change and earthquakes have me shaking to the core.
But what is the connection?
My feet are cold.
We have to “rebuild” our image with a shithole like Haiti?
We’ve sent troops and countless relief supplies to that dung heap over the past two decades.
What will Haiti do to rebuild its image with the US?
“That was a Lethal Weapon reference, by the way. But you knew that.”
Nope. I didn’t.
I’m pretty much current pop-culturally ignorant.
Danny Glover is too stupid to assimilate the answer ... there is no connection since the starting premise is a lie.
Glover, in addition to being a low-IQ racist fool, is a little “c” communist who slobbers all over Castro and Chavez. Anyone who pays to watch him in any kind of entertainment is contributing directly to an enemy of America.
We have to rebuild our image with a shithole like Haiti?”
I think some evil, white Christian conservative like Dick Cheney forgot to flush on a visit to Port au Prince in 2003.
Thus our relationship with that stellar country is irreparably “damaged”.
Irreparably in the sense that only cash will do.
Well, Al Gore says the earth's inner core is "several million degrees," so, if you extrapolate from that, with the scientific expertise of a Danny Glover, it's like a non-ovenproof plate cracking, because of the inner oven of the earth...and we turned up the heat too high, or something.
I have to lay down now, my head hurts...and it's chilly in here.
To the Left, thoughtful and emotive are all that is required for anything and everything.
I’ve had the Lethal Weapon series playing in the shop the last few days while I putzed around.
You can see each movie becoming more liberal and political.
In Lethal Weapon 3, the theme is “cop killer bullets” and his goal to get them off the streets.
In 4, Glover and Gibson have a discussion while standing in front of a huge poster that says zillions of kids get killed each year by guns. 4 is basically unwatchable.
Why is Pat Robertson “utterly stupid” and Danny Glover credible?
IMHO, they’re both stark raving mad...
LOL! Good one!
Of course! The glaciers in Haiti melted too quickly during the past 10 years, and the earth rebounded from the relieved pressure, causing this great upheaval.
Why didn’t I think of that? Danny is brilliant.
“Anyone who pays to watch him in any kind of entertainment is contributing directly to an enemy of America.”
See Post #19.
Climate change -> Earthquake
Why couldn’t he have just encouraged people to help and left it at that??
4 was punishable as a crime against humanity. Oy. I remember when it came out, director Richard Donner saying in an interview that they basically had no script, and they sort of made up the day’s shooting schedule each day over their morning coffee. Maybe he was just trying to be funny, but I remember saying to my wife, “Yeah, it looks like it!”
Glover is not only stupid - he is mind-numbingly, breathtakingly, monstrously, tragically stupid.
Where is his good friend Hugo Chavez on helping Haiti?
“Rebuild our relationship with Haiti??” I guess he means the relationship whereby Americans have countless millions of tax dollars stolen to support illegal Haitian immigrants and current thug dictators on the Island. That “relationship”, Danny?
Waiting for the White House Gibbs to come out and say how incredibly stupid this statement is from Glover about Haiti and Global Warming...
I don’t see how GW could cause an earthquake. After all algore sez it is millions of degrees under the earth so the earth should not get the shakes over the puny effects of man caused GW.
And link - isn’t that the muzzie channel?
I’m all for helping the Haitians in their time of dire need, but what have wealthy African-Americans like Mr. Glover been doing for the Haitians over the years?
This actually does happen in Canada. Well, except for the “great” part.
I know. I’m an engineer. You can get rebounding when you excavate in expansive soils. Once you remove a large depth of overburden compressing clay, the soil can expand or heave.
I wonder what this buffoon's area of expertise is. It appears to me as though he has spent most of his adult life parroting words/lines that someone with with intelligence have written for him.
“Im an engineer.” I gathered that - the idea of “rebound” is not a common one. I knew a now-deceased geologist that would argue years ago about the idea that “sea levels were lowering”. (Seattle Area). He kept arguing that the “ground is going up, not the water going down”. He was finally vindicated.
Glover is a racist idiot.
Glover and Robertson in a cage match to the death. Proceeds to go to Haitian relief. Yeah, I’d pay to see that.
Lethal Weapon was “current” pop culture circa 1987. Twenty three years ago is hardly “current”.
But lacking a TV that does anything other than play DVD disks.... I feel you.
The connection is really quite simple. The inner core is millions of degrees. We are adding a couple of degrees from our carbon foot prints. There you have it millions plus a couple from our carbon footprints = more earthquakes. It is so simple only a liberal can figure it out.
“Twenty three years ago is hardly current.”
Its all relative.
My first child was born in 1987, which rendered much of current pop culture from that point onward vacuous, superficial, addicted to shock value and basically counter to much of what I believe is important. Although, the movement in that diseased direction started in my opinion, long before that, somewhere in the mid-1960’s.
