Get Busy Livin’ or Get Busy Calling the Tea Party Racist: Morgan Freeman Doesn’t Heed His Own Advice

Morgan Freeman: “They’re going to do everything they can to get this black man outta here.”

Has Freeman noticed that one of the people in the GOP mix who is among the Tea Party favorites is a black man?

Here’s the kicker: Not all that long ago, Mike Wallace interviewed Freeman and asked him what would be the best first step to eliminate racism in the country. Freeman’s answer: “Stop talking about it,” and stop obsessing about color:

I’d have respect for any Hollywood lib who would simply man-up and admit that their favorite president has been an abject failure, an economic disaster, and accept that the rainbows, gumdrops and unicorns America was promised was a fraud. But instead, somehow Obama’s shortcomings are due to a racist “Tea Party” that was completely powerless for the first two years of his presidency.

News flash for Freeman: In every presidential election, the opposing party is trying to “do everything they can to get that other guy outta there.” Even the white ones.

Freeman might also want to have a chat with many former Obama supporters who are white, but who have somehow, by Freeman’s definition, suffered Sudden Racism Syndrome.
