    It is nothing short of amazing that an actor who has portrayed, how shall we say, "sanitized" versions of racial agitators like Malcolm X and Rubin "Hurricane" Carter can still maintain personal views that contradict the "America the Ugly" story the left would have us believe. And even more important, he’s willing to go public with those views regardless of how his heretical thinking could affect his career in the Cultural Marxism capital of the world: Hollywood. Denzel Washington, during an interview, refused to employ the Opposition Media’s approved excuse of blaming the "system" for continual problems in the black...

    Power’s most current interlocutor, Denzel Washington:  In an interview, Washington told The Grio where positive change in the black community needs to start: "It starts in the home," the actor said. He went on to argue: If the father is not in the home the boy will find a father in the streets. I saw it in my generation and every generation before me, and every one since. Washington isn't talking about boys finding a literal father figure to guide them on the right path. He's talking about the streets themselves raising kids, and that path is nothing but trouble:...

    During an advanced screening of his new movie, the celebrated black actor Denzel Washington was asked by the Grio whether blacks, in particular, can "truly makes change as things are right now." With no hesitation, Washington stated: It starts in the home[.] ... If the father is not in the home the boy will find a father in the streets. I saw it in my generation and every generation before me, and every one since. If the streets raise you, then the judge becomes your mother and prison becomes your home.

    Veteran actor Denzel Washington says his latest role as a dogged defense attorney in Roman J. Israel, Esq. reinforced his belief that black men “can’t blame the system” because we make it “easy work” when it comes to filling America’s prisons. “It starts at the home. It starts at home. It starts with how you raise your children. If a young man doesn’t have a father figure, he’ll go find a father figure,” the Academy Award-winner told reporters at the Dan Gilroy-directed film’s New York premiere, the New York Daily News reports. “So you know I can’t blame the system....

    When reporters ask celebrities to comment on politics, there's some sense of an expected answer. No doubt, when a reporter asked Denzel Washington to chime in on the subject of "fake news," she expected him to offer hand-wringing concern about reckless right-wing commentary. Instead, she got a flat-out rebuke. What is the long-term effect of too much information? One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore. So what a responsibility you all [in the media] have... to tell the truth, not just to be first, but to tell the truth. We live...

    The Hill ^ | 12/06/2016 | Judy Kurtz
    He was at the center of a fake news story, but Denzel Washington says it's the mainstream media that's selling "BS." "If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you do read it, you're misinformed," Washington, the star and director behind the new film "Fences," told ITK at the Wednesday premiere inside the National Museum of African American History and Culture. "Fences," based on an award-winning play of the same name, also features Viola Davis and centers on the life of a black family in 1950s Pittsburgh. It is set to be released on Christmas.

    WASHINGTON – Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington said it’s up to the American people to “ask questions about each other and engage” as a way to improve race relations in the country because the U.S. president cannot “legislate love.”Washington also had a direct message for anyone wondering which candidate he voted for in the 2016 presidential election: “None of your business.”Washington’s comments were his first since he was the subject of a false article that claimed Washington shocked Hollywood and endorsed Donald Trump for president.The post was shared more than 22,000 times on Facebook before being removed.Politifact and BBC...
  • Denzel Washington Defies Hollywood- Speaks Out Against Obama Agenda

    Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington recently defied liberal Hollywood by speaking out about his strong Christian faith. Obama has consistently shown that he has a strong anti-Christian agenda, so Washington’s brave words have enraged Obama-lovers everywhere. “I read from the Bible every day, and I read my Daily Word,” he told a reporter, adding that it was not difficult for him to grow up as the son of a preacher. “He wasn’t a taskmaster, but there were certain things you couldn’t do,” Washington said. “He had his own church, and it was a long Sunday, because you had to be...

    In a commencement speech given to graduates at Dillard University on Saturday, Washington charged them with an assignment that cannot go unnoticed. “No. 1: Put. God. First!” said Denzel. “Put God first in everything you do. Everything I have is by the grace of God. Understand that. It’s a gift.” Washington spoke about his humble beginnings and then charged the students to “fail big” and keep things in perspective as they reach for their goals. “And while you’re down there [on your knees], say thank you. Thank you for grace, thank you for mercy, thank you for understanding, thank you...

    Denzel Washington told graduating students to "put God first in everything" in his commencement address at Dillard University in New Orleans on Saturday. His address covered everything from motivation and discipline, to how to think about money and success, but the underlying theme was dependency on God and gratitude for what God has given you. The two-time Academy Award-winning actor said: "Everything that you think you see in me, everything that I've accomplished, everything that you think I have – and I have a few things – everything I have is by the grace of God... It's a gift." Washington,...

    Dillard University‘s 218 members of the Class of 2015 received a special treat in addition to their diplomas — Academy and Tony Award-winning actor Denzel Washington to deliver the keynote commencement address. And in contrast to the whiney, racial and excuse-driven address delivered by first lady Michelle Obama at another historically black university, Washington’s was filled of hope, humor, inspiration and love of his creator. “No. 1,” he resolutely told the graduates of the New Orleans university, “Put. God. First!”

    (CNSNews.com) – Screenwriter and author Andrew Klavan said that in Hollywood, “(i)f you’re a conservative, especially a religious person, people have to meet in secret. They talk in whispers. It’s a very disturbing kind of culture.” Klavan, in an exclusive interview with CNSNews.com, explained that he and fellow conservatives in Hollywood are battling the liberal status quo by creating entertainment that reflects the values held by the majority of Americans. And things are changing for the better, he said, pointing to the best-picture Oscar nomination for the Christian-themed film “The Blind Side” and Sandra Bullock’s win as best actress in...

    Does anybody remember John Q, a 2002 melodrama that starred Denzel Washington as a loving father driven mad by his insurance company’s refusal to pay for his son’s heart transplant? Faced with his son’s imminent death, Denzel seizes his only option: taking the hospital emergency room hostage until doctors agree to perform the operation. The movie portrays Denzel sympathetically as the victim of greedy insurance companies and openly pleads for national health insurance. But what happens when it’s the government who’s refusing your son – or mother – or wife – the heart transplant? What happens when it’s the friendly...

    Cross I Am Legend with The Ten Commandments and you’ve got The Book of Eli, a genuinely religious parable that inherently rebukes pointless end-of-the-world movies like The Road. This time there’s a purpose to the post-apocalypse: Eli (Denzel Washington), one of humanity’s survivors, is heeding the word of the Lord to protect the world’s only remaining Bible and bring its teachings to the West. The Book of Eli works just fine as an action blockbuster, but it’s much more than that. Eli, who can smell lurking “highjackers” determined to rob and kill him long before they get close, is fierce...

    London: Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington has reportedly landed the role of US President Barack Obama in a new movie. The 54-year-old has long voiced his interest in playing Obama, 47, in a film but feared he would be too old for the role by the time a picture of the politician`s life was eventually produced, reports imdb.com. Washington has now confirmed he`s set to portray the president as the ultimate endorsement for his starring role. "It was at the president`s suggestion. The only problem is he has bigger ears than me," said Washington.

    Has anybody else seen the new movie Deja-Vu, with Denzel Washington? My wife and I just went to it last night, and I thought it was a very good movie... with one glaring exception. Once again, Hollywierd just has to throw in their glaringly obvious bias against conservative, white men.WARNING: PLOT SPOILER The bad guy in the movie, a terrorist who bombs a ferry, killing hundreds of innocent men, women and children, is a white, male "patriotic" military wanna-be. The relative dearth of white, male terrorists seems to escape them. They hate conservative, white males more than they do real...

    I have always liked Denzel Washington. He's a great actor and I've always suspected that in real life, he's a good guy. Suspicion confirmed by the following story which was sent to me by Banafsheh Zand Bonazzi: "Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center, in San Antonio,Texas (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers that have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the States, especially burn victims. They have buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a hotel where soldiers'...
