    Default Morgan Freeman: Tea Party Is Racist, They're Just Out To Get Obama

    Morgan Freeman laid down the chips on the Tea Party in a new interview with Piers Morgan that is due to air Friday night.



    The Oscar-winning actor sat down with the British TV host and, amongst other things, discussed his belief that the right wing Tea Party's anti-Obama stance is rooted in racism.

    When asked by Morgan whether Obama's presidency has made racism in the United States better or worse, Freeman, who once played apartheid-defying South African president Nelson Mandela, frankly stated that his time in office has made it worse, as he has become a target of the right's aggression.

    "Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term," the actor said. "What's, what does that, what underlines that? 'Screw the country. We're going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we're going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.'"

    Declaring once again that "it's a racist thing," Freeman said the group's rise has shown the hate still lingering in America.

    "Well, it just shows the weak, dark, underside of America," he said. "We're supposed to be better than that. We really are. That's, that's why all those people were in tears when Obama was elected president. "Ah, look at what we are. Look at how, this is America." You know? And then it just sort of started turning because these people surfaced like stirring up muddy water."

    The actor continued, saying that he understood President Obama not fighting back, seeking to stick to his principles, but wishes that he'd be more aggressive now.

    Racism my ass!
    Obviously Im not American but it's as plain as the nose on my face that the reason the Tea Party (and many, many other Americans's) want Obama out is because he's a frikkin useless president with no policies worth a crap! The only reason he got to where he is was because he was black and now he's there all he's done is screw everything up (with the exeption of killing Bin Laden). I'm pretty sure that, had he had great policies and had really made a difference, then we wouldn't even be talking about this.

    You really think that George W. Bush was the better president?
    I'm not an american so I don't really care, but I always wonder about all these (extremely) conservative people here at these boards.
    Normally I'm avoiding the 'non-music' threads because everytime I read a thread like this it makes me so angry. I can't believe how much hate is going on in these forums.

    Herman Cain Responds To Morgan Freeman Criticizing Tea Party As Racist
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_980258.html

    During an appearance on Fox Business on Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain weighed in on critical remarks recently made by Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman about the Tea Party.

    Freeman said it unnerves him that the conservative movement is garnering momentum during an appearance on CNN last week.

    "Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term," he said. "What underlines that? Screw the country. We’re going to do whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here."

    Freeman characterized the actions of the Tea Party as "racist" and suggested that Obama's presidency has only fueled the rise of the coalition of conservative activists, and in that context has made the issue of racism "worse." He said, "It just shows the weak, dark underside of America. We're supposed to be better than that. We really are. That's why all those people were in tears when Obama was elected president. Look at what we are, you know? And then it just sort of started turning, because these people surfaced like stirring up muddy water."

    On the heels of his surprise win in the Florida straw poll this weekend, Cain, took issue with what Freeman had to say.

    "Well, first of all, I doubt if Morgan Freeman, with all due respect, who is a great actor, has ever been to a Tea Party," said the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza. "Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Parties ... about having a racist element, they have never been to a Tea Party."

    Cain signaled that he was not offended by Freeman's remarks, but explained, "I just think that it is sad that they’re so short-sighted in really understanding what the whole Tea Party citizen movement is all about." He added, "So, name calling is something that’s going to continue in this because they don’t know how to stop this movement. And this movement is making a big difference in politics, because a lot of the traditional Democrats are moving to the center or moving over to vote for conservatives. They’re taking another look at a Herman Cain."


    P.S.



    File this under creepy: Morgan Freeman is reportedly going to marry his 27 year old step granddaughter E’Dena Hines. Everyone together now: C R E E P Y.

    According to the National Enquirer, Morgan, 72, who divorced his wife last year, has been having a decade-long affair with Hines.

    “Morgan has led her to believe that he wants to marry her,” a family insider told the tabloid. “Becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E’Dena’s goal,” revealed another family source.

    Hines is the granddaughter of Morgan’s first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, whom he and his estranged second wife Myrna raised since she was a young child.

    Hines has accompanied Freeman to numerous red carpet events but no one thought anything of it because she was being introduced as his granddaughter.

    “It’s not technically incest, because they are not related by blood…[but] Morgan is trying desperately to keep his divorce out of open court so all the shameful facts won’t become public,” added the source.

    It may not be incest, but it’s still pretty disturbing. He helped raise her since she was a little girl! That's just disgusting!!

    In some respects yes, Bush was a better president. He always seemed like a normal guy, the sort you might meet in a pub or bar, very down to Earth. He made mistakes like we all do. Obama just seems like a puppet for spin doctors, I honestly believe that sometimes ther is a guy with his hand up Obama'a ass moving his mouth around while someone from his speach writing department speaks into a microphone under his desk. He just comes accross as false...Also, did I mention that his polices ain't worth a poop?!

    It's funny how in instances like this, they always bring up the fact that Freeman played apartheid-defying South African president Nelson Mandela, but never mention that he has also played God or the man who makes all of Batman's gadgets.

    He's an idiot. They want him out of office not because of the color of his skin but because THEY think he is doing a shitty job. The only racist thing about it is Freeman's perceived action of racism. Who the fuck cares what he thinks anyway, he's a fuckin actor.

    To deny the Tea Party being racist would be like denying that water's wet.

    Kinda disappointed that Mr. Freeman equates tea party activism to racism, especially since I believe that he was one in an interview bemoaning the fact that we still sort people out in this country by the colour of their skin.

    Disappointed to hear his belief. I guess if Black men keep fucking up, they can keep blaming it on racism to avoid introspection. Exactly why, as a whole, the BLACK RACE is so fucked up! Keep it up and the ideas and beliefs of the true racists will come true for black America.
