Morgan Freeman: 'We're In a Lot of Trouble If We Don't Reelect Obama'
newsbusters ^ | June 20th, 2012 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 06/20/2012 5:25:26 PM PDT by Mozilla

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman said Tuesday, "We’re going to be in a lot of trouble if we don't reelect" Barack Obama.

Appearing on PBS's Tavis Smiley show, Freeman added, "Because people on the other side of the fence scare me"

I guess Freeman forgot that he said last September Obama's made racism "worse."

Of course, he also said the Tea Party is going to do "whatever [it] can to get this black man outta here."

Exit question: If Obama's doing such a great job in Freeman's view, what does he think about black unemployment at 12.3 percent?

This is the same libtard jackass who played Nelson Mandela in Invictus, portraying him as a pontificating wonderful non-racist demi-god instead of the highly politically racist mass-murdering ba$tard that Mandela was.

Freeman glided thru the film with a script that sounded like Mandela was reading bumper stickers. I guess every Holly-weird lefty will accuse the flyover everyday workers (us) as racists if they don’t re-elect this bumbling Kenyan-born fool.

I might agree with him, depending upon which "we" ol' Morgan is referring to.

“This is the reason I stopped going to movies years ago. I won’t waste my money on these idiots.”

That was half the reason; the other half was the messages in the movies themselves (black scientists/doctors patiently instructing ignorant whites, women physically capable of beating up a platoon of Marines singlehandedly, sexual deviants being more compassionate than heterosexual family men, the list goes on forever).

Another Hollywood moron.

Why do we care what the “celebs” think about anything?

They make a career of mouthing lines fed to them by others and faking the concomitant emotion.

Fraud is their stock in trade, and yet we seek their input?

Enormously silly.

Who is the “We” in “We’re” ?

If “We” refers to black-racists and communists, then yea, he’s right. If Obama loses, they lose.

Morgan’s surely one of those guys who sends in his extra taxes so he’s not taking advantage of the Bush tax cuts.

Right?

What a most excellent observation.

This is a question liberals in hollywood, politics, (pseudo)journalism, etc. etc. etc. aren't asked NEARLY enough!

The last time I thought about this was when the zerrhoid made the statement that he has too much money, doesn't need it, etc. There's no reason why Rush or Hannity or Ann Coulter should not challenge these imbeciles to get their checkbooks out the next time they make such ridiculous assertions! If you have so much faith in the gubmint, put your money where your mouth is!

What has Obama done that makes anyone think he can do anything to make things better? He can stay the course, which requires him doing nothing, or he can take another election as a mandate to do something, and then we will be really screwed. Sorry Morgan, but black doesn’t qualify anyone for anything, except affirmative action, and Obama is doing a great job at affirming that cliché. Too good for the nation to keep him employed.

It’s time to stop being politically correct and call these black entertainers and sports figures what they are: racists that’ll vote for any given black person over a white based on skin color and nothing else.

They are not shy about doing it us. Let’s stop dancing around it.

Morgan Freeman is continuing to work. He is in Dark Knight Rising (Batman 3) coming out in July. He probably got paid handsomely for his role, and he should. I am not sure what he means we are screwed if we don’t reelect Obama.

I really don’t think racism is much involved.

Most of the white folks in those categories are liberal idiots too.

Statement: "...We’re going to be in a lot of trouble if we don't reelect" Barack Obama..... Because people on the other side of the fence scare me"

Response: While "The Divine One" may or may not be re-elected this actor does not have to worry as to people on the other side of the fence. We are too leaderless, disorganized and vice addicted to effectively resist the ongoing "Third World" conquest.

Morgan Freeman is head case. I just read that he had multiple mistresses while married, one of them his grand daughter (or step-granddaughter) E’Dina who is close to 50 years young than him. Now that is scary.

I’ll tll you how much trouble I think we’re in: if Obama is re-elected, then there won’t be enough money in our house to see ANY Morgan Freeman movie, nor will we have the money to pay to see Morgan Freeman on television. The same goes for any Sarah Jessica movie. I mean, who wants to see your varicose-veined feet, anyway?

I have disregarded the opinions of actors since I was scarcely an adult half a century ago.

For the life of me, I can’t understand why anyone would particularly care what an actor thought.

Or a musician or taxi-driver. They’re always asking taxi-drivers...

But actors? Sheesh. They make a living playing pretend.

I must disagree here. Freeman is always the same character—all he does is memorize lines written by someone else to make him sound deep and philosophical.

I think his movie persona is completely artificial.

There's a difference. Most of those whites would have no qualms about ditching Obama if he stopped catering to them or someone even more liberal came along. Not so with a lot of these entertainers/sportsmen. Some have even said race is the reason they voted for him. Why are we hesitant to call them racists?

Who seriously cares about the opinion of a man who pretends to be other people for a living? When did the people of this country start giving a flying F about the opinions of actors and singers? Because these people can “pretend” they are so great and knowledgeable?

Actors and actresses doth think way too much of themselves.

I have to arise to the defense of cab drivers. I love to have extensive discussions with Chicago cab drivers and do so about thirty times a year. I have discussed religion, history, local and national issues.

They are independent and entrepreneur types even when non-owners of their medallion.

It is amazing what substance is covered. Many remember me and great me like an old friend after months of not seeing me.

Agreed.

Nearly anyone could do what Freeman, or any actor, does.

Sainted Robert DeNiro is just playing himself, an Italian New Yorker. Film my Uncle Mike acting naturally, and you’ve got DeNiro.
