Al Sharpton Hosts Actor Danny Glover's Incoherent Anti-American Comments
'Progressive' Gobbledygook Masks Anti-American Agenda
Because overtly-expressed "progressive" politics remain so thoroughly unpopular in America, its far-left practitioners must resort to coded language that masks the real agenda. During today's Al Sharpton Show, extremist actor / Hugo Chavez supporter Danny Glover has provided a fascinating example.
Glover has recently been protesting Arizona's new immigration law with Sharpton.
Clearly, "exceptionalism" is a reference to America's status as a global superpower, which Glover would like to see undermined to the point of extinction. Beyond that, his bizarre rant illustrates just how detached from reality the "progressive" left has become.
Decades spent immersed in East Bay radicalism and friendly visits with foreign despots can do that to a person.
Of course, he may also simply be nuts:
AL SHARPTON (49:12): How is America perceived at this point with these new kinds of draconian laws with this fight over health care? I mean I’m trying to give people a sense of in many ways as much as we claim to be so advanced we are really behind on many of the human rights fronts.
DANNY GLOVER: Well, we exercise this idea of exceptionalism you know and that’s unfortunate you know, because you see exceptionalism happening in other places in the world. The fact that you have a president of a country, Bolivia, whose first language is not Spanish who is a shepherd of the mother Earth and talks about mother Earth in poetic ways and everything else. You see that happening.
You see woman, two women, most unfortunate now is only one woman now elected to be President of a nation in Latin America. This exceptionalism happens is a certain exceptionalism that is often we’ve claimed ownership to, but other people around the world have usurped us, you know they’ve moved past us. Have gone and said we’re gonna create dynamic democracies. We’re going to create democracies where woman have a voice.
Sharpton's playing a role here as well: "advanced" in progressive-speak means anti-American governance that is subservient to that of Third World dictatorships and other assorted global basket cases.
