Lethal Weapon Star Takes Shot at Obama

Shortly after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, eminent climate expert/activist/actor Danny Glover gave us this intellectual gem.

"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 the benefit of his vast political insight regarding the alleged U.S.-South Africa conspiracy against his friend and fellow Marxist Jean-Bertrand Aristide. In an exclusive interview with Amy Goodman Professor Glover explained why Aristide has not been allowed to return to Haiti to assist with the relief effort.

DANNY GLOVER: Well, he's mystified by that. You know, there's been several calls for him to return. His party still -- the Lavalas is still the largest party, that's not participating, that's not active in the electoral process. And yet, he's dismayed by that, the fact that both -- it seems as if the South African government and the United States are complicit in his not returning to the hemisphere. Now, that's certainly...

GOODMAN: What is he saying the South African government?

GLOVER: Well, he said the South African government -- he didn't say this. But I'm saying, it seems to be a tacit complicity between -- to not have him return in any capacity to the hemisphere. That's been the case all along. So he's essentially waiting by, waiting for some word of the possibility of him returning.

Although it is difficult to figure out just what the eloquent Mr. Glover is trying to say here, it does seem as if he is accusing the United States and President Obama of conspiring with South Africa and President Zuma of conspiring to prevent Mr. Aristide from returning to Haiti to lend his support to the Haitian people in their time of need. This must be quite a conundrum for Professor Glover with all of this political intrigue and no practical way to play the race card. That must really hurt!
Later in the interview Mr. Glover gave us a quick history lesson about the American involvement in Haiti.

And, of course, I mean, we see George Bush and Bill Clinton, former presidents, who have been the key orchestrators of the undermining of Haitian sovereignty and democracy, standing-standing right there to supposedly play some sort of role.

Well it is always fascinating to get a lesson in history and politics from one of the intellectual giants of the entertainment industry. Why it is that individuals like Danny Glover, Jane Fonda, Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon and their comrades who have prospered the most from living in our great nation are always so quick to condemn American exceptionalism and our way of life?
