    Gerardo Hernandez, a spy for Communist Cuba and the man responsible for the murder of four humanitarian workers (three of whom were American citizens) over international waters, was freed from prison last year by the Obama administration, due in part to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). This was revealed at a February 6, 2015, celebration of Hernandez’s release, along with two of his fellow Cuban agents (collectively known as the “Cuban 5..

    Alice Walker is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who’s made her moral case against the Cuban embargo scathingly clear. In a letter to then-President Bill Clinton, she said, “Even if you despise Fidel and even if the Cubans should not have shot down the planes violating their air space. the embargo is wrong because it punishes people for being who they are.” As it happens, we have sympathy for the argument that opening up regimes to the world may well do more to fight oppression than boycotts and embargoes. But when it comes to Alice Walker, the same woman who has...

    The Constitution's Second Amendment was created to bolster slavery and capture land from Native Americans, award winning actor Danny Glover told a group of students at a Texas A&M sponsored event on Thursday. “I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” he said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans.” “A revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the second amendment is,” he continued. Glover, best...

    Utah State University President Stan Albrecht used an Earth Day speech to comment on actor Danny Glover's controversial selection as May's commencement speaker as well as the global warming debate, saying that both illustrate a lack of "rational and thoughtful discourse." Albrecht began by saying that "ideological discord" in the United States has reached new heights. "Looking at this life in total, it reflects 40 years of actions that are centered in kindness and generosity, acts that are not at all defined by politics but by compassion for people," Albrecht added. "He has also been a political activist, taking on...

    Actor Danny Glover and 11 others have been arrested during a labor union protest at the Maryland headquarters of a food service company. Montgomery County police spokesman Capt. Paul Starks says Glover and others stepped past yellow police tape and were asked to step back three times at Sodexo headquarters. When they refused, Starks says officers arrested them. The dozen were issued citations for trespassing and let go. Starks says they face a $1,000 fine or 90 days in jail.

    US actor Danny Glover and 11 others were arrested Friday at a protest outside the US headquarters of French company Sodexo, which workers accuse of union-bashing and poor working conditions. Glover was taken away in handcuffs along with the outgoing head of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Andy Stern, former Sodexo canteen cashier Terry Shelley and several others, after crossing a police line outside the US offices of the food services firm. The action brought together hourly-paid workers, students, and even union representatives from Britain and France who sought to show support for US workers like Shelley, who said...

    Actor and activist Danny Glover has offered hugs and moral support to Cleveland-area workers at a men's suit plant that faces a shutdown next month with the loss of 375 jobs. Glover later held a news conference and appealed to Germany's Hugo Boss AG to reverse its shutdown decision. Glover led a boycott of Hugo Boss formal wear at the Academy Awards earlier this month. The company says its shutdown decision stands. The company says the union representing workers rejected concessions at the plant, which it says isn't globally competitive.

He is calling on his fellow actors on the red carpet tonight to wear pins on their lapels reading "Keep the Hugo Boss Plant Open.": He and the union sent a letter saying 375 workers would lose their jobs if the factory closed and asked Hollywood to "take a small stand for American workers."

"What happened in Haiti could happen anywhere in the Caribbean because all these island nations are in peril because of global warming," Glover said. "When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I'm sayin'?" I must confess that the logic of Professor Glover's scientific analysis defied my limited ability to comprehend. Last week Mr. Glover took to the airwaves of left wing Pacifica Radio to give us...

If you missed it, this “pillar of Christianity” decided that, while the people of Haiti were suffering from a devastating earthquake, many of whom, at that very moment were buried beneath the rubble clinging to life, he should let everyone know that the disaster was actually their fault, no pun intended. The convoluted logic...

Pat Robertson came out this past week and claimed that the earthquake and many other troubles throughout their history is a result of their making a pact with the devil in exchange for victory over the French. Thus Pat Robertson said that countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries believe the country is cursed and so he says this is why the earthquake happened....

Only a few hours after Barnes became the fourth player in tournament history to reach double-digits under par, he began marching backward. He led by six after nine holes of the third round but only led by one at the end. Then the fourth round began in the late evening, and Barnes drove badly on the first hole and bogeyed. He is tied with Lucas Glover at 7-under-par, but play wasn't suspended until Barnes...

    DANNY Glover's movie project with Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez never got off the ground - and it's because of Hollywood's racism, Glover whines. Marxist Chavez was smart enough to offer just half the financing for the film, $18 million. Glover was supposed to get the other $18 million from a distributor, but no one in Hollywood was interested in a preachy film about Haitian independence hero Toussaint L'Ouverture. Glover told a Paris film seminar: "Producers said, It's a nice project, a great project . . . where are the white heroes?'

    HOLLYWOOD — readers may remember the film "Team America: World Police," a puppeteer's parody about the American government, its foreign policy and its home-grown critics in Hollywood. One of the puppets lampoons Oscar-winner Sean Penn, who, in the film, laments the invasion of Iraq by harking back to the time it "was a happy place. They had flowery meadows and rainbow skies, and rivers made of chocolate." Penn was so angry about the film's message that he wrote the film's creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, a blistering public letter signing off with a scatological reference.

    Glover shares views on activism 9-4-03 By MATT WILLIAMS, Staff Writer News & Record GREENSBORO -- When Bush administration supporters denounced Hollywood actors who opposed a war in Iraq, Danny Glover didn't understand why his profession had anything to do with speaking his mind. "The fact is when you speak truth, you're always going to be attacked, whether you're an actor or whether you're a plumber," Glover said. "Without dissent, it's not really a democracy." Glover took that message to Bennett College on Wednesday, invoking the words of Martin Luther King Jr. to urge students to make activism part of...

  • Celebrities feeling muzzled for speaking out on issues [Chill Wind Alert]

    WASHINGTON – “Lethal Weapon” actor Danny Glover is the latest celebrity facing an icy brand of national pride that puts the pinch on public figures who question American foreign policy. A threatened boycott seeks to force telecommunications company MCI to dump Glover as its pitchman because of views he expressed about Cuba and against the Iraq war. Similar frostiness extended to the Dixie Chicks, and actors Sean Penn, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon when they came out against war in Iraq. Glover said this chill comes from right-wing factions that he denounced as self-appointed thought police. “It’s basically this rabid...

    Ed Asner sees a greater threat from the Bush administration than from the hapless Fidel Castro who is being pushed around unfairly. Defending Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover signing a letter denouncing the U.S. for threatening Cuba, Asner charged on Wednesday's Buchanan & Press on MSNBC that "they may well be put in prison here for...the support they're giving to Castro, the way things are going in this country." Asner insisted that those put to death by Castro, for trying to hijack a ferry so they could escape to the U.S., received a "very fair" trial. Blaming the U.S. for...

    It's working! Word at MCI is that Glover has been canned!! Good news from Lori at MCI and a fellow PABAAH member Well as some of you may know, I work for MCI. I just got notice today that MCI is going to pull all the Danny Glover ads starting today and will be using some different ads in about 10 days. I think the ads will just be graphics and will not have any spokesperson in them. Even though the company has no formal statement on Glover or the pulling of the ads - I am so glad my...
