Daylight come an’ me wan’ t’row your a$$ in jail

Harry Belafonte continues to shine as the gravel-voiced beacon of truly mindless totalitarianism. I suppose the gig is more prestigious than singing about banana boats.

I never cease to be amazed at the heroism of parlor radicals who, rather than relocating to the Marxist countries they admire, stay in the United States, suffering the ignominy of having to live lavish lifestyles and piling up money by the sack-full. What …self-sacrifice.

"Dissent is central to any democracy."
– Harry Belafonte, 2006

"people who sit and try to dismantle the wishes of the people; the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama and I don't know what more they want. The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third world dictator and just put all these guys in jail. You're violating the American desire."
– Harry Belafonte, 2012

It's jarring that he would say that out loud on a national television program. Did he think "MSNBC? Al Sharpton's show? who will ever hear about it?" Thank you freedom of speech for letting petty self-important totalitarian hacks self-identify for all to see.

Also of note is that he doesn't seem to realize that those he is complains are obstructing the will of the people were also elected by the will of the people.

Every malcontent that I have offered to relocate has proved their parasitic credentials. It's amazing how unappealing those Marxist "Utopias" become when presented with the option of a one-way ticket.

Wonder how many other restaurants have shown Harry the door for attempting to help himself to their till?

So many people down on capitalism.
So few migrating to North Korea.

I have to question whether Old Harry is even a citizen. Didn't he originally come from Jamaica?

Rebecca, he's a New Yorker born in Harlem but he spent the 1930's in Jamaica - his mother's native place. I always get him mixed up with his friend Sidney Poitier, who isn't an 'activist'. Poitier's parents were small businesspeople, growing and selling tomatoes. Belafonte's people were cooks and housekeepers. Resentment at his parent's servile lives explains the chip on Harry's shoulder.
