    Actor Danny Glover is leading a rally in San Francisco on Saturday to support bigger tax breaks for California’s film and television industry. Supporters of Assembly Bill 1839 are trying to pressure lawmakers to sweeten the current program, “which is capped at $100 million a year and 20 percent of production costs — smaller than rival incentive programs in Georgia, Louisiana and New York,” Variety magazine reported. The 10 a.m. rally will be held at San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel. Also attending are Assembly members Marc Levine and Rob Bonta, San Francisco supervisors David Chiu and Mark Farrell, Teamsters VP Rome Aloise and IATSE Local 16 VP Eddie Raymond.

    Danny Glover and others featured in a documentary about a 98-year-old Asian-American activist are protesting the film’s screening at a Tel Aviv film festival. In a statement released Monday, participants in “American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs,” including Boggs, said they “formally stand with the people of Palestine,” support the call for a cultural and an academic boycott of Israel, and were “shocked” to find the film slated for inclusion at the Doc Aviv festival this week. Boggs, a philosopher and writer who has been involved in left-wing American social movements, “has explicitly stated her support of the...

    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.

    Actor Danny Glover has taken on a new role - as international statesman. The "Lethal Weapon" star traveled to South Africa late Wednesday to escort exiled former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide back home. Aristide has been issued a diplomatic passport after seven years in exile but has encountered resistance to his return to Haiti before a presidential run-off election on Sunday. Glover questioned why former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier would be allowed to return, but the twice-elected Aristide would not. "People of good conscience cannot be idle while a former dictator is able to return unhindered while a democratic leader...

Jimmy Carter is upset because, with this federal law upheld, he won’t be able to pal around with his buddies in Hamas and Hezbollah anymore. Cue the tiny little violin playing: Former President Jimmy Carter has voiced concern that Monday’s Supreme Court ruling on “material support” to terrorist groups may criminalize his “work to promote peace and freedom.” Carter, whose advocacy has entailed contact with groups designated by the U.S. government...

As the color guard brought in the U.S. Flag, the video shows person after person putting their hand over their heart. At around the 55 second mark of the video, you can hear a spectator shout, "Put your hand over your heart, Glover." The video does not show Glover himself. Glover later said he "meant no disrespect." "I probably wasn't the only one in there who didn't put a hand over their heart."

    Get yourself ready for it. The media is going to praise Danny Glover for getting arrested for standing up for workers abused by capitalism run amok. On April 16, he was arrested at a protest against the Sodexo food service company for their treatment of workers. He’ll be hailed as a hero and other Hollywood stars will follow in his footsteps, if for no other reason than publicity, but Glover deserves no praise. He has a history of painting America as the problem and anti-American regimes as the saviors of the oppressed. “We’re here today to say no more to...

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.

As a result of that failure, he says, “this is what happens.” The ludicrous Glover quote...
