LEFT’s Hypocrisy, Double Standard and Racism, Oh My … Ed Asner Explains Hollywood Silence on Barack Obama with Regards to Syria: They ‘Don’t Want to Feel Anti-Black’ … Also, Dem. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton‘s Says Only Reason She Would Vote for the Syria Resolution Would be to Not “Shame” Obama


The hypocrisy, double standard and racism from the LEFT … Are you kidding me, the Hollywood, anti-war Left has suddenly gone silent on Obama on Syria because they don’t want to be branded racist.

Good grief, this is what our country has come to under Obama? From The Hollywood Reporter states that uber-leftist Ed Asner believes that the liberals in Hollywood have been silent on President Obama’s cries for war with Syria and a military strike against Assad in response of his use of chemical weapons on his people because they are afraid of being called racists. HUH? That is correct, Asner stated that they ‘don’t want to feel Anti-Black’. Does Asner realize that his very comment is racists? So to understand the mindset of a liberal, if you are against war, you can only be against it as long as their is a white president? Unbelievable. Also, this morning on Fox & Friends Weekend, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee blasted ‘Insane’ Dem Rep. on Syria and the ‘Racist’ Hollywood for silence. The fact of the matter is that the LEFT will support Obama, not because of the content of his charter or policies, but because of the color of his skin. So they are admitting to having different standards for people of different color. That my friends is the definition of racism.

Tucker Carlson brought up Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton‘s comments that the only reason she would vote for the Syria resolution would be so that Obama wouldn’t be “shamed.” Huckabee called that an “insane rationale for launching a military strike,” since members of Congress generally need to think about the Constitution when they vote and not the president’s public relations.

Huckabee said this is clear and unqualified “racism in its rawest form,” made so much worse by the “duplicity of people who think they’re so open-minded.”

Don’t look for Iraq War-style protests, says the liberal activist, who — like “M*A*S*H” star Mike Farrell — opposes military action.

In 2003, ahead of a U.S. attack on Iraq, a robust anti-war movement in Hollywood included a TV commercial starring Martin Sheen and Sean Penn visiting Baghdad. There were online petitions signed by Ed Asner; letters to President George W. Bush pleading for peace were signed by Matt Damon, Tim Robbins, Barbra Streisand and Alec Baldwin; former M*A*S*H star Mike Farrell fronted multiple press conferences where celebrities denounced war. In interviews, Janeane Garofalo stopped identifying herself as an actor — she preferred to be called a member of the U.S. anti-war movement.

Also, said Asner, unsuccessful efforts to prevent war in Iraq led to complacency among left-wing activists.

“We had a million people in the streets, for Christ’s sake, protesting Iraq, which was about as illegal as you could find. Did it matter? Is George Bush being tried in the high courts of justice?” asks Asner. “We’ve been so God-damned stung in this country by false wars, repeatedly, that, how can you believe in any just war with the history we have had?”

Another reason some Hollywood progressives have been reticent to speak out against war in Syria, according to Asner, is fear of being called racist.

“A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama,” he said.

The Independent Journal Review asks, wasn’t the election of Obama, the nation’s first “post-racial president” was supposed to change all that? It seems that it only has enhanced it.

The unspoken message, of course: We must never oppose Barack Obama or his policies. Because he’s black. To oppose the actions of blacks – or fail to blindly take up their causes precisely because they’re black [see: Trayvon Martin], means we’re “racists.” In the hypocritical eyes of the left, that is.

Wasn’t the nation’s first “post-racial president” was supposed to change all that?

      What a reason to vote for something. Not because of the real issue, but out of fear of being called a racist.

      We need to do a lot better job of vetting those who are supposed to be taking care of the people in our congress.

      If the story of Obama’s heritage is true, he is only one-eighth black. These people behave like six or seven year children.

      I’m beginning to like the term racist it currently redefines as patriotic

      As for fear- You want fear Hollywood, let middle America roar with the word Boycott and you go broke, damn broke.

      I’ve started. No movies or Oprah for me. Its the throwing the single starfish in the sea principle

      Besides who gives a rats ass. Its a stupid freak’in word whose only power is in what you give it. Nana nana boo boo

      OMG….jeez, anything to keep racism going….outrageous….obama has more white genes in him than black….but he chooses to be black. Having a black racist President doesn’t help anything. Who cares about what the Hollywood celeb’s say , we’re not making a movie. They are better off not to say anything at all. And Eleanor Holmes Norton is just plain ignorant. She’d vote for resolution so he could save face. He lost that along time ago. Where did some of these people come from anyway, out from under a rock, like trolls????

      After further reading, my conclusion is that Hollywood’s silence is not about criticism of a Black President per se, but that of appearing anti-Semitic, that is criticism of a Black President who kowtows to Israel.

      Remember the actors who ranted about the controlling power and influence of Jews in Hollywood, operative word,…remember.

      A few examples: Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Marlon Brando, Jim Caviezel
