Morgan Freeman on Tea Party Members: RACISTS!

by at . Comments

To say Morgan Freeman is not a fan of the Tea Party movement would be putting it mildly. In an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Freeman labels Tea Partiers radicals whose sole aim is to oust President Obama from office.

"But it's not a racist thing?" asked Morgan.

"It is a racist thing," replied Freeman.

"Their publicly stated policy is to do whatever it takes to see that Obama serves only one term. What underlies that? Screw the country," Freeman lamented.

"We're going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here."

"We're supposed to be better than that. It shows the weak, dark underside of America," said the Oscar-winner of those "controlling the Republican Party."

There are plenty of racists out there, but the whole Tea Party? We'd be more concerned that these people think hurricanes result from God judging gays.

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?

Why is everyone so quick to blame Obama? Need I remind you who was in office when the economy collapsed? It takes time and resources ($$s) to clean up this kind of mess. The tea party doesn't contribute to uniting the country, they are just like the congress.......they do nothing except complain and nothing gets done.

Kathy...the Tea Party elected this congress to STOP OBAMA from ruining this country! They ARE doing what they where elected to do. Morgan Freeman is a moron and just lost another fan....he needs us more then we need him.

He started out ast a disadvantage, trying to clean up Bush's mess. Then you have the Republicans who won't help him do anything to fix it. I personally believe it's because he's black. Anyone else, there would be some partisanship.

I wonder if the president wasn't black or half black would we even be having this conversation? It is the only reason they can make up as to why he won't be reelected. It has nothing to do with his skin color...he is a terrible president regardless of his heritage, period. He would a single term president if he was white, purple or blue.

TO SAY IT IS BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN IS JUST WRONG, IF IT WAS BUSH OR CLINTON WHO WAS DOING WHAT HE IS DOING TO THIS COUNRTY, WE WOULD BE VOTING THEM OUT ALSO!!
IF THE ARGUEMENTS DON'T FIT YOUR VIEWS THEN, THEY ARE RACISTS! THEN THAT IS THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK ISN'T IT?

"Omg! It's not about race morgan, it's about incompetence! Disappointed dude!" Yes, Pam, you're right, it is about incompetence! The incompetence of the U.S. Congress to do the job they were elected to do; instead of spending all of their time trying to get 1 person out of an elected office. Maybe if Congress had done their job, they wouldn't have to worry about getting Obama out of office. It would have been a given. They real incompetence here is that in Congress. Congress controls the spending of the taxpayers' money, not the President. This entire economic nightmare is the fault of Congress. Plain and simple. They are trying to dodge responsibility and blame it on someone else.

Most of the commentators make Mr. Freeman's point. If you will do "anything", even at the risk of harm to our country, to remove the president from office, that tells me it is not his policies you despise, but the man himself. Check yourself.

Actors need to act and keep their mouths shut! Most don't have a pea for a brain! You can't be against someone with color or your a racist, yet its fine for African Americans to accuse white people of racism because they want!

Omg! It's not about race morgan, it's about incompetence! Disappointed dude!

Which is exactly what I don't pay any attention to these idiot actors who think their opinion matters on political events. Make your movies, make your millions and Shut Up! If you believe in Obama's re-distribution of wealth, take your million dollar paychecks for doing one movie and donate it. How much does one person need? Put your $$ where your mouth is.
