That’s what anti-war Ed Asner says.

“We had a million people in the streets, for Christ’s sake, protesting Iraq, which was about as illegal as you could find. Did it matter? Is George Bush being tried in the high courts of justice?” asks Asner. “We’ve been so God-damned stung in this country by false wars, repeatedly, that, how can you believe in any just war with the history we have had?”

Another reason some Hollywood progressives have been reticent to speak out against war in Syria, according to Asner, is fear of being called racist.

“A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama,” he said.

The reason they're afraid of being called racist is because they've spent the last 5 years calling anyone that opposes Obama racist.

They set the rules and now don't want to play. Cowards & hypocrites.

Celebrity opinions on anything political are as important and meaningful as the opinion of the butcher at my local grocery store.

Exactly, Walterc.
Loony lefties like Janeane Garafalo and Chris Matthews have been playing this angle for years. Now they can't say "well, disagreeing with the President doesn't mean you hate black people" without looking like the huge hypocrites they are.
It's too damn funny.

I believe the second point, not wanting to be called racist, is more of a controller than this stupid belief that overpaid actors who are rewarded frequently by the American people are tired of being stung by "this god damn country."
