That doesn’t surprise me. Asner is evil. He’s rich. Why doesn’t he give all his money away? Hypocrite, like all liberals.
They never had the talk when they were young.
As kids sometimes they ask parents why someone they know is poor, or doesn’t have money or food or new clothes. Then in young ideal naivety, say why don’t we give some of our money to them, and they wouldn’t be poor.
At that point you say we’ll start with the allowance you earn, by doing x,y,z, and sometimes a,b and c.
Little child says “BUT I EARN THAT, I WORK REALLY HARD FOR MY MONEY!”
And that is where the lesson is learned.
Libs like Asner prove they have either never had that light click on, or they have learned this lesson and are being deliberate hypocrites.
He feels guilty. He IS guilty, ultimately.
He doesn’t want to do what he has to do to really alleviate that guilt - take it to the cross. He’s his own god.
So, in order to achieve his own sense of righteousness,
he advocates for policies perceived as “helping” people.
