If unions are trying to win sympathy, dragging Marxist, commie-hugging actors into the fray to side with them won’t do much to sway public opinion in their favor:

Actor and activist Danny Glover has urged labor union members protesting at the Indiana Statehouse to stand in solidarity against what he called an organized campaign attacking American workers.

Several hundred union members cheered Monday as the star of the “Lethal Weapon” action movies told the protesters they are part of a nationwide battle to stop a “vicious attack” to take more from the middle class.

Anybody else find it odd that the actor who claims to be fighting for American organized labor has a king-size man crush on Hugo Chavez, the guy who runs a country where union leaders are imprisoned for organizing strikes and the “wrong kind” of union activists somehow manage to turn up dead? Rank-and-file American labor might want to think twice before applauding Danny Glover’s world view and asking for the same thing to be brought to the United States.

And speaking of “taking more from the middle class,” the middle class is invited to see Glover’s latest movie… for $9.50 each and another $25 for popcorn and soda.

    Do these actors, the Glovers and Penns, REALLY not understand that the dictators they have such huge man crushes on actually imprison and sometimes murder dissidents (people who just disagree with them) ? Is all the news about these dictators just right wing lies and propaganda ? Or do they actually like the thought of being at the top of the communist ladder ? I cannot understand the appeal !!

    I remember my Dad fussing when we`d go see the big epic movies of the time, "Lawrence of Arabia", "The Poseidon Adventure" etc. and admission was up to $2. a head and refreshments (coke and popcorn) hit $1.50 ! HIGHWAY ROBBERY !!

    Is that a "Got Milk" commercial Glover is doing ?

  3. SignPainterGuy on March 1st, 2011 3:29 pm

    And it would likely be worth the $9.50 price of admission !

    It certainly ain`t no "Earnest P. Worrell" milk commercial ! Someone let him "in" the house !

    Looks to me like the "man crush" is about to take the "next step" !

    Looks like the Detroit Federation of Teachers Union could use a little Danny Glover love fest.

    They act the same way at their own union get togethers as they do when they are degrading, intimidating and threatening the very taxpayers that provide them a paycheck.

    Saw a great comment on another site. A lot of our local tv stations now have comment sections on their stories. Make it known to these local stations that their biased coverage of the Wisconsin and Indiana union fiasco is deplorable. The MSM is not hearing us – so lets go local. Perhaps let the advertisers know too!

    Sadly, the ABC affiliate and the only network tv station in this end of the state does not allow comments ! I`ll check the two stations in upstate SC and the PBS stations here and in eastern TN .
