Danny Glover: Hatian Earthquake Caused by Global Warming

Actor Danny Glover should probably stick to reading lines other people write for him. Speaking off the cuff, he said this of the tragic earthquake in Haiti that may have killed as many as 50,000:

“The threat of what happened to Haiti is a threat that can happen anywhere in the Caribbean, to the Island nations. You know? They are all in peril because of global warming. They are all in peril because of climate change and all this, and we need to find… When we did what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response. This is what happened, you know what I’m saying? We have to act now.”

I had to add a new category to the site to accommodate this post. None of the regular categories really seemed to quite fit. In retrospect, a lot of other stories would probably fit in there too, but it took Danny Glover to Christian the new category.

    Danny Glover is about the stupidest idiot to ever open his mouth. What a moron. If this was a punishment by God, or guia, for the failure of the Copehagen summit….. why the hell would Haiti be punished? That would be like God closing the Red Sea while Moses and the Israleites were still in the middle of it!!!! Haiti is like the poorest country on the planet!!!! They have one of the smallest carbon footprints of any nation. Either God is an idiot, or Danny Glover is………..I think it’s Glover.

    It is Glover that is the idiot. I have to say though, the world knows that his statement was preposterous, maybe now they will equate a global warming believer to a complete idiot?! Nut case wacko! Glover, thank you for proving my point!

    More hysterical Liberal bashing. I don’t think that’s what he meant you dolts. It was Pat Robertson (evil incarnate) who blamed the earthquake on the Haitian people becuase they made a pact with the Devil, etc. The sound bite you got from Danny G. sounds incomplete and removed possibly from a certain context. And yes he does believe in AGW, which is his right to do, and I think he was comparing the current situation in Haiti with what could be a similar situation (not exact) in terms of pain and suffering from serious climate change and how that may effect poor people on islands more than others.

    Just sayin’. You guys LOVE to jump on the Liberal bashing band-wagon as much as possible. Why don’t you also criticise right-winger Pat R. if you are so outraged…? Just wondering.

    • Neil F. AGWD/BSD January 16, 2010 at 9:10 pm #

      Robertson is an idiot too. Those of you who know me know that I am not religious, so how the heck would I know what he says? I’ll say it right now, anyone who belives that is a MORON!!!!!
      I don’t talk much about what I believe as far as God goes, but I think I will talk about it a little here because it will help to understand why I believe these people are morons.
      First, I believe there is a God, or creator, that created the Universe, and our little corner of it. I don’t think God can be explained because the creator of something that we do not understand is not an entity we will ever understand. I believe we were not created with the capacity to understand God, which is why I think it is ridiculous that some people claim that they know what God wants, thinks, or does.
      The second thing is that the planet we live upon is not stable. It never was, and it never will be. With a better understanding of plate tectonics we may, someday, be better at predicting earthquakes. But just because we could not predict it, does not mean that it was not going to happen anyway! Just like everyone was predicting global warming but it is cooling. Is God punishing people who believed in global warming by making it cool? No, of course not.
      No, I think that even if people never existed that earthquake was going to happen anyway.
      Anyone who says that any disaster was God punishing us for anything is no different than people who would blame bad things on gremlins. They are ignorant, stupid fools who should be paid no attention.

      I’d say we’re more apt to criticize Danny Glover, rather than Pat Robertson, because the latter doesn’t represent a movement threatening to undo Western Civilization.

    • Hal Groar January 18, 2010 at 10:11 am #

      You are right Rob, Pat Robertson’s comments were stupid. I’ll take it one more step, I think Pat has lost his mind. He borders on a medical condition. While I have no proof of that, I suspect it. I shook my head when I heard what he said. I do not consider him “on my side” in general. Pat has gone off the deep end a number of times which makes it hard to take him serious. So I don’t. But in fairness, I will call him on it for you.

    The only hysteria I am seeing here, is glover and robbie from the hood.

    btw, robbie: ‘ When we did what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response. ‘

    How the Hell is that not claiming this is the result of not doing something Stupid about natural climate change?

  7. paul wenum January 17, 2010 at 12:36 am #

    I’m religious, that said Pat Robertson has always ticked me off. He has never represented me, however the media portrays it like he does. As to Glover. Good actor, but cannot think on his feet.

  8. Rob N. Hood January 17, 2010 at 8:38 am #

    No everyone is eloquent all the time. Glover may have stumbled over some words, or whatever. I would bet anyone a lot of money HE WAS NOT SAYING ANYTHING LIKE WHAT PAT ROBERTSON SAID. You are reading your biases into it, and making a mountain out of a molehill. As usual. I think he was trying to say what I indicated above. Am I 100 % sure of that? Given what we have to go on, of course not. But you all seem to be damn certain about it.
    Odd that.

    • Dan McGrath January 18, 2010 at 11:58 am #

      It was pretty clear what he said. The video isn’t chopped up or anything. That’s the whole segment. That said, after some consideration, I don’t think Glover really is that stupid. I think maybe he’s hoping some segments of the audience are that stupid, though. If he slips out some crazy and most people just dismiss it, but a segment runs with it, that could be construed as a success and they’ll go on spreading the crazy when they talk to others about it. Could be a deliberate atempt to plant seeds to grow some more marginal, radical loony activists.

    See? I meant to begin with Not everyone. Typos and “mis-speaking” happens, to everyone. Gee, I remember a recent President that happened to also, quite frequently as I recall.

  10. Lone Wolf January 17, 2010 at 7:23 pm #

    Is that the same president who thinks there are 57 states?

    • Dan McGrath January 18, 2010 at 11:54 am #

      That’d be the one. I’m sure his handlers have schooled him on that point by now, though.

    • Rob N. Hood January 18, 2010 at 2:22 pm #

      Everyone who is honest knows that was just a slip of the tounge and had to do with something else he just said or was going to say. You guys are pathetic.Danny G. is just a human being like the rest of us. None of you geniuses never said anything dumb or off the cuff you may have regretted later? Nah! – not you guys, you’re perfect in every way!

      • Neil F. AGWD/BSD January 20, 2010 at 9:49 pm #

        Danny Glover is a big star. I am not! When Glover says something it gets printed or otherwise circulated, my comments do not. Glover has been photgraphed embracing Hugo Chaves, I would probably break Chaves’ neck if I ever got that close to him.
        No, Glover is not just a human being like the rest of us. And he’s not just making an off the cuff remark!!! He believes what he is saying.
        Why are you so strenuously defending this guy?

        • Rob N. Hood January 21, 2010 at 9:34 am #

          No very stenuously, I don’t think. Just sayin’ we all say bumb things from time to time. to make a huge deal about it is hysterical. You saying you’d break Hugo’s neck is a PRIME example. You are a hypocrite, and then some.

          And re: below NWO = New World Order. Are you all serious that you don’t know that? If you do, then why the attempt at humor re: that? Even Bush Sr. used that term while he was Prez. Others have as well.

          • Neil F. AGWD/BSD January 25, 2010 at 9:30 pm #

            A hypocrite? What? That does not make any sense. How is it hypocritical to say that I would break Hugo Chaves’ neck? We both know that I won’t ever be getting that close to your idol. Besides, it’s true. If I had an opportunity to kill that loser I would take it in a heartbeat.

  11. craster January 17, 2010 at 7:58 pm #

    We all know that the entertainment industry is the collective minion for the NWO. We also know that HAARP can create earthquakes. What a coincidence that he should say this in the wake of a failed Copenhagen climate summit!

    • Dan McGrath January 18, 2010 at 11:50 am #

      We do?

      • Neil F. AGWD/BSD January 20, 2010 at 10:01 pm #

        Yes Dan, did’nt you know that? The NWO (I have no idea what that is.) Is that North West Orient? And Minion? Who is this, the Monarch from the Venture Brothers? (“They like minions better than henchmen”.)
        And yes, the Copenhagen summit went badly so the US went to HAARP in Alaska to destroy Haiti with an earthquake! That sounds totally logical!
        Here’s some more logic along those lines;

  13. Hal Groar January 18, 2010 at 3:12 pm #

    I agree with Paul, this is dribble. Rob I think a verbal mis-que is one thing but to blame earthquakes on the absence of signatures on a piece of paper two thousand miles away OR a sign from God expressing disappointment in a pack with Satan go beyond mis-que. But hey! We all make mistakes. a simple “I was wrong” could go a long way here. (From Danny and Pat)

    Dan, The Huffington Post, US, People and other magazines are our demise. Nobody under 30 seems to care, read or investigate the truth. It’s all reality TV, and websites that are X rated compared to this site that does not espouse hate, just attempt to find the truth etc. I’m on the “back nine” of life and it will possibly not effect me. It is my children and my children’s childrens lives going forward that scares me. It scares me dearly.

    i bet Dannys’ remarks were longer than this clip and probably taken out of context. Don’t you all think that he watches the discovery channel too. Hes not dumb. We all have said things that taken out of context would make us seem to be looney also. As for Pat Robertson, He is a God fearing Christian who says what He thinks is true. Is Voo Doo practiced in Haiti? Is Voo Doo rituals found in The Bible or is Voo Doo an abomination? I cringe in fear for the people who practice this Pagan ritual. There is 1 God. There are No other Gods beside Him. I fear Jehovah so much that I will not even so much as study Voo Doo or its beliefs and practices. I Trash Ouiji Boards also. Don’t You Fear God? I mean really…Zombies. Dead Chicken rituals, blood. Witchcraft was forbidden in The Old Testament. Yet, Saul (KING) consulted the witch at Endor. Remember Endora…Sams Mom on bewitched. Anyway, King Saul used witchcraft even though it was forbidden. Remember what happened to King Saul and His son Johnathan the next day? I’ll refresh your memory. King Sauls’ Son Johnathan was killed in battle. King Saul was wounded and fearing torture commanded His armour bearer to Kill Him. Then King David had the Armor bearer stabbed to death. Witchcraft anyone? I’ll Pass. Even if a Witch gave me the winning Lotto numbers I would rather eat from a trash can.

  19. Rob N. Hood January 22, 2010 at 3:47 pm #

    Yes, Dale, Glover didn’t say what these hysterics imagine while their over-active knee jerks. He was obviously referring to global warming that (if true) will create much misery and loss of livable land on many islands and low-lying areas around the world. He was using the earthquake as an analogy to what he believes will happen due to uncontrolled global warming. That’s all. No more, no less… You can disagree with his beliefs re: climate change, but the hysterics and make-believe stuff is really thoughtless, to say the least. To put it politely.

    Now, for the rest of your post… uhhhh….. I have no comment…..

    Danny G is an idiot and like to hear himself. Several years ago he took up the case of a tried and convicted murderer here in Texas and lobbied to commute his pending execution. Needless to say we executed the guy. Point is that Danny took up the cause and make some very stupid statements like he had some inside knowledge. Fact is he knew nothing about the case – eyewitnesses convicted the guy. My whole point is that you would find his knowledge about any serious subject to be VERY THIN!
