Actor Danny Glover to star in House Dems’ next production … on reparations

Democrats in Washington, D.C. understand well the power of pop culture and the impact celebrities can have on pushing for things like “restorative justice.”

In a hearing scheduled to coincide with Juneteenth, a day set aside to commemorate the emancipation of black people in the U.S., the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties announced it will “examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”

This being progressive code for reparations, of course — the irony here is that for a party that claims to be seeking progress, Democrats spend plenty of time looking in the rearview mirror.

On Wednesday, at 10:00 a.m., the hearing is set to get underway, with actor Danny Glover and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates scheduled to testify on the matter, according to NBCWashington.

Glover, 72, a hardcore leftist, has an estimated net worth of $40 million dollars, but his Democrat pals are more interested in his star power than his expertise.

But the “Lethal Weapon” star is accustomed to being a useful idiot, as Miami Herald columnist Fabiola Santiago wrote earlier this year:

But when it comes to Cuba and Venezuela, Glover comes across as a clueless caricature, a prisoner to the left-wing politics that worship Latin American dictators who push the narrative that they’re the great liberators of the minority masses.

In reality, Glover’s friends — the late Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez, and now, Nicolás Maduro — are oppressors of the worst kind who have destroyed their countries, sent millions into painful exile and are violators of basic human rights like freedom of speech.

 

And make no mistake, Glover is a great admirer of the murderous Cuban dictator, as seen in this tweet marking Castro’s death:

He’s also a strong advocate for “democratic socialism” in the United States.

Reparations are supported in one manner or another by some of the more radical 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls.

And Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is getting accustomed to walking a fine line with the hard left elements of her party, has said she supports a study on reparations.

The biggest challenge, outside of the enormous cost, is the complications involved in the implementation of reparations.

As for paybacks, one social media user inquired about whether Glover plans to pay back all those who paid to see all the bad movies he starred in:

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter that suggest the issue of reparations isn’t going to go over well with many Americans:
