Why does anyone interview actors about their political views? Why do actors agree to these interviews? All they do is turn off half their audience. Chris Noth, who is most known for his role as Mr. Big in the long-gone Sex and the City, is the latest. He said the shutdown happened because of racism because Obama’s black. Boy, I’m glad he put a lot of thought into it.
Noth said if Obama been white the government never would have shut down in the first place.
“I think racism can be an unconscious, knee jerk reaction without people even knowing it,” Noth said while fleshing out his position.
“There is something about Obama that makes these people, ah, just intolerable … i consider [Tea Party Republicans] to be un-American. I do. They don’t care about the country. They care about their small constituents.” (Read More)
Noth must have been out of the country during the Bill Clinton shutdown. I guess he doesn’t know about the government shutting down while Ronald Reagan was president, or the dozens of other times it happened.
What a cowardly “analysis” of the situation. It’s so much easier to call people names and accuse them of racism than it is to talk about the issues. Then he might have to admit that Obamacare is a trainwreck, the national debt continues to skyrocket, millions more Americans are dependent on the government, and the economy sucks.
Oh, and Noth is now in the show The Good Wife. I don’t watch it, and now I definitely won’t. Screw him.
