Edward Asner, the prominent Hollywood liberal and former president of the Screen Actors Guild, flat out admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that the reason there's not a bigger anti-war outcry from stars about the Syria situation is because they are scared of looking “anti-black” by opposing President Barack Obama.
The “Mary Tyler Moore Show” star also felt that the Iraq war outcries fall on deaf ears, which created a protest fatigue. Many Hollywood liberals also are disenfranchised with the president.
“I voted for him, but I'm not proud,” said Asner. “A lot of people have lost hope — with the betrayals, the NSA spying … People aren't getting active because 'Who gives a [s***]?' is essentially the bottom line.”
