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?

Time to leave the country, Morgan.

Take your friends with you, make us all happy (except whatever country gets stuck with you)

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?

Obama isn’t a black guy. He’s a Mulatto. He’s also a Marxist. Racism has nothing to do with getting him out of the White House.

Dear Morgan,
You are a great actor and I have enjoyed your work...you are obviously a talented professional and wish you continued success in your career

Please keep your asinine political opinions to yourself and I will be able to continue to enjoy your fine work

What in the world compels celebrities to say these things? “Oh, I have a new movie coming out next month, so therefore I should alienate half the potential audience.”

We’re in even more trouble if we think that the sometimes good-looking but generally emptyheaded twits whose names emit from Hollywood have any more insight into how the country should be run than a head of lettuce. I would bet that 85% of, say, medical doctors are smarter than Morgan Freeman. But I wouldn’t pay money to see them act, nor would I expect them to be able to act. So why the political opinions of movie stars or singers should be given any weight is incomprehensible, at least to me.

Yeah, because your black man has done a pretty crappy job, so I tried to get a better one to replace him.

As long as freeman is working, I’m sure he doesn’t give a crap. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen any philanthropic gestures from this mouthpiece for hussein.

Good. Keep it that way. You will be better off.

Normal Americans are "on the other side of the fence" from you for a reason.

Morgan, lova ya, man

No.

I don't love a damn thing about those morons.

My patience with communist agenda "liberal progressive" pukes is GONE.

And it ain't coming back either.

There are so few who aren’t idiots that you simply must expect any actor wagging his mouth to be a full-on moron. This guy is obviously no exception.

Oh bother. Another racist screaming about the injustice of this country all the while this cretin rakes in millions from his white audiences.

As I said, this is so old at this point, most, if not everyone has become deaf to the racial charges.

Freeman sounds as racist as any KKK member from the 1800s. He just happens to wear a slightly different color hood.

Well, they notice that millions of people hang on their every word, and they're popular for it, and it kinda goes to their head... sadly, they seem to quickly forget that the great words they're famous for saying are written by smarter and wiser people... and that the words that come to them on the spur of the moment from their own minds... aren't.
