Morgan Freeman is latest $1 million donor to pro-Obama PAC
Daily News ^ | 7/21/2012 | By Kristen A. Lee

Posted on 07/21/2012 7:43:23 AM PDT by tobyhill

President Obama’s latest $1 million donor is a former fictional resident of the White House himself: Morgan Freeman.

The star of the latest Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises," made the big-money donation to the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action, Politico reported.

“President Obama has done a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances,” Freeman said in a statement to Politico, noting the president’s actions to end combat operations in Iraq and rescue the auto industry, among others.

“In return, he is the target of hundreds of millions of dollars from right-wing sources," he added. "I am proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him."

The donation comes after Freeman made waves by suggesting that Obama is not America’s first black president.

The actor, who played the U.S. president in the disaster flick “Deep Impact,” noted that Obama’s mother was both American and white as he was critizinging the so-called birther movement for its suspicions about his citizenship.

Hollyweirdos should be boycotted but I am sure there are many on the right rushing to the theaters to see this. And donate to Obama.

Targeted by right wingers huh? This puke has his wormhole show on Discovery. I tried watching once to see what it is about. It, like all non-believing lost souls, is pro-earth, pro-creation, worship the creation and not the Creator. It is full of theories that have not basis in any fact. Just throw it out there and the stupid, uneducated winnies suck it up with a straw and believe it. This guy is on the fast track to hell and he denies there is a hell. Soon, he is going to have a first hand view of it because he refuses to believe the Creator and continues to worship at the alter of pagan beliefs and eastern religion falsities.

I stopped going to movies in Nov 2000... I refuse to give my money to left wing actors who in turn funnel it to democrats — like Obama. Morgan Freeman is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s money laundering - you give your money to Hollywood and they give it to Obama. And I don’t miss the movies - a lot of great books out there to read.

It’s okay for Freeman, Maher etc to drop millions on this election. But the donators on the right are “buying the election.” The hypocrisy and doubles standards are so thick.

He is the weirdest of the weird--has taken up with the teenaged daughter of one of his wives or girlfriends.

I watched a DVD of Gone Baby Gone and am so not a fan anymore--hard to believe this was the tough sarge in Officer and a Gentleman, he's just a puffy old f*rt with a face covered in ugly moles...

Yeah, we know how Dems waste and steal money. Obama may raise more, but can he raise enough to cover all the waste and theft? This will buy a few boring commercials. Meh.

These Hollywood idiot millionaires could easily pool their money and bail out CA. Instead they give to Obama and the Dems so we poor peons can pay more taxes with money we don’t have while they kill the job and housing markets.

In Rise of the Black Serial Killer: Blacks represent 88.24% of the number of serial killers apprehended since 2010, yet only account for 12.6% of the populace.....

In Rise of the Black Serial Killer:

Documenting a Startling Trend, Justin Cottrell expels the myth that serial killers in America are predominately white. On the contrary after sifting through a myriad of newspaper records and books, he*s compiled a list of murderers that is equal too or greater than the number of white serial killers from 1860 to present. Few if any have ever heard any of their names or stories, until now.

Based on his findings white serial killers have been underrepresented throughout American history when compared to the percentage of the population they represent by a factor of 1.79 on average.

On the other hand, black serial killers have been overrepresented 2.68 to 7 times their portion of the population, with a 150 year average of 4.18.

Another startling trend he uncovered is black serial killers have never represented less than 26.83% of the number of serial killers in a given decade, despite their overall percentage of the population never exceeding 13.1%.

This trend has steadily increased to the point that in our current decade they represent 88.24% of the number of serial killers apprehended since 2010, yet only account for 12.6% of the populace.

Aside from trends, this book offers reasons most people assume “black serial killers don*t exist” from the media prohibition on the subject, to general misunderstandings. Coupled with this is a look into the various factors that breed serial killers, with a look into why black serial killers are on the rise, while white serial killers are on the decline.

To prove his research is valid, the full list of 836 black serial killer is provided, along with a brief description of their crimes. In addition to this the biographies of 35 of these killers are given, with detailed information about their crimes, including the names of their victims.

you would think the Bat Lady would be paying money to see BATMAN but I’m tired of funding the left dems of hollywood. So as I have been seeing lots less movies, I will pass on this one too. I can’t get past their words to enjoy the movies.

I love the Shawshank but hate Tim Robbins. I would say I could watch because of Freeman but no longer. Not even a re-run anymore!!!

My M-I-L says but I should just watch them if they are a good actor, that’s not good enough anymore!!! I have cut many many people’s movies from my list and here is one more!

And what happened to “can’t give more than $2,400 per person” campaign finance reform? HMMMMM?

If you can take $1 million into the smallest room in your house, drop it into the porcelain receptacle, pull the handle, watch it disappear, then look into the mirror and smile, congratulations you just imitated Morgan Freeman.

To some it's black before competence.

It's never black before competence. It's always Democrat before Republican because for blacks, Democrats are the party of freebies and racial preferences. And Obama has been fairly competent in terms on delivering on both. If Obama were a conservative Republican, do you really think Freeman would have either voted for him or handed over $1m to his PAC?

I’ve been to 1 movie in the past 2-3 yrs—and I can’t think of the name of it, but it was a musical with Meryl Streep.

I’ve watched a few on Netflix—but mainly comedies.

Anyone having Netflix, I can heartily recommend watching a series called “Broyles War”. It was first produced by Masterpiece theater, and I think there are more than 20 episodes.

We watch one episode (about 1 1/2 hr) every night, and are glued to our seats watching it!

I have certain flix that I watch once a year....”Rio Bravo” and “True Grit” and “Rooster Cogburn” and The Horse Soldiers” and many other John Wayne’s.....Tom Selleck’s “Mr. Baseball, “Quigley Down Under” et al.

I’m teetering on the edge with Paul Newman in “Long Hot Summer” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” etc. Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, et al will tide me over until Jesus comes back, or until I go to meet Him. 2 Gable faves are “Tall Man” with Jane Russell and “Band of Angels” with Yvonne de Carlo. Now that gal is tacked together real nice!7

I’m waaaay behind with books I have waiting on my NOOK.....not to mention reading/studying God’s Word. So Freeman, Glover and the rest of the communist scum regardless the shade of their skin pigmentation, can go pound sand!

Freeman is a hypocrite. He’s been making the rounds saying how much Obama has disappointed him and he’s tired of people saying Obama is a black man. Freeman calls him a mullato, which he is. But this hypocritical pro-abortion, pro-homo loving actor gives Obama a million bucks. Guess he wants to marry Anderson Blooper.
