Chris Noth: Another ‘Brain Dead’ Actor


chris-noth-6Add another actor to the list. Chris Noth, currently starring in “The Good Wife,” played Detective Mike Logan on “Law & Order” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” and “Mr. Big” on “Sex and the City.” Noth has now outed himself — as yet another liberal. Worse, his moronic anti-GOP, anti-tea party comments put him into the category of “brain dead” Hollywood liberal, to use an expression from playwright David Mamet.

Noth, unhappy with the partial government shutdown, tweeted this thoughtful analysis: “Highest level of racism was shown yesterday when Republicans forced a shutdown of our government. Mostly because our President is black.” Naturally, he weighed on the tea party: “Every tea party member should be horsewhipped.” Get it? Opposition to Obamacare … is racist!

Mamet, in 2008, wrote an article for the “Village Voice” called “Why I Am No Longer a Brain-Dead Liberal.” He described his conversion from the typical Noth-like Hollywood mindset:

“As a child of the ’60s, I accepted as an article of faith that government is corrupt, that business is exploitative and that people are generally good at heart. These cherished precepts had, over the years, become ingrained as increasingly impracticable prejudices. Why do I say impracticable? Because although I still held these beliefs, I no longer applied them in my life. … I began reading not only the economics of Thomas Sowell (our greatest contemporary philosopher) but Milton Friedman, Paul Johnson and Shelby Steele, and a host of conservative writers, and found that I agreed with them: A free-market understanding of the world meshes more perfectly with my experience than that idealistic vision I called liberalism.”

Noth confidently displayed his bigotry toward Republicans and the tea party because he knows that where he works most people think just like that — or they’re are smart enough to shut up if they don’t.

Ben Shapiro, attorney and talk show host, wrote “Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV.” Conservative actors, writers, producers and staffers, Shapiro writes, are blatantly discriminated against: “The television industry is … ideologically xenophobic. Most conservatives in Hollywood don’t work today, at least not openly. That’s not because conservatives are untalented or unqualified or incapable of empathy, as many on the left ridiculously contend. It’s because liberals employ a mirror form of McCarthyism on a large scale.”

In fairness to Noth, many Americans feel hostility toward Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., and the House Republicans, and blame them for the partial shutdown. But Ted Cruz led the charge “mostly because our President is black”?!

Since 1976, there have been 17 “shutdowns” — not counting the latest — for a total of 110 days. In 15 of these cases, Democrats controlled the House. Were the Dems “hostage takers,” “terrorists” and “anarchists”?

The shutdown was about Obamacare. Teamsters head James Hoffa, an Obamacare supporter, wrote a letter to Obama in which he said that Obamacare threatened the 40-hour workweek. Warren Buffett agreed that Obamacare should be “scrapped,” and he warned of our healthcare market becoming “less and less competitive.” Did they criticize Obamacare “mostly because our President is black”?

Noth believes Republican/tea party opposition to Obama is rooted in racism. How many of his Hollywood homies back Obama because he is black? Did Noth tweet about fellow actor Samuel L. Jackson? Jackson explained why he supported the then-Senator from Illinois in 2008: “I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.”

Since Noth is concerned about “racism,” one wonders how he feels about a recent poll that asked Hispanic, black and whites this question: As between Hispanics, blacks and whites, which group is most racist? More Americans (37 percent) believe most blacks are racist, versus 15 percent saying most whites are racist and 17 percent believing Hispanics are racist. Even blacks consider blacks the most racist. Thirty-one percent of blacks, according to the poll, said blacks are the most racist, 24 percent said whites and 15 percent said Hispanics. Mr. Noth, does this mean that blacks’ hostility toward President George W. Bush was “mostly because our President was white”?

Polls have long asked Americans if they would vote for a black person for president. In 1960, about 40 percent said yes. By 1980, 80 percent said yes. More recently, in a 2006 Times/Bloomberg poll, 97 percent said yes. But more Democrats (at 4 percent) than Republicans (at 3 percent) ruled out voting for a black candidate.

Reckless charges of racism are standard operating procedure for the Hollywood left. But the election and re-election of the first black president presents a challenge. When the evidence demonstrates the declining significance of race, how can leftists continue to complain about its alleged significance? Answer: expand the definition of “racism.” At one time, hostility toward a race made one a racist. Today, mere opposition to a policy — providing a black president is on the other side — makes one not only a racist, but one in need of a “horsewhipping.”

    There is the old expression of, “It is better to be thought of as a fool than to open one’s mouth and prove it.” In this case, to tweet it and prove it.

    Naturally, Noth feels he is not “racist” but he would be wrong. Shakespeare’s quote often comes into play with liberals, “The lady does protest too much, methinks.” Liberals often scream the loudest that they are not racist – but they are. They only see people by skin color. They define people by skin color. They are naturally collectivists who group people instead of seeing people as individuals – which is what they truly are.

    Noth is just another, as Elder mentioned, brain-dead Hollywood liberal who believes in collectivism. What else is new?

  • Elizabeth capecod

    Makes one in need of a “horsewhipping”?
    This is the creepy-azz ‘white cracker’ mentality of the current democratic party.

    1. I love this concern about government shutdown. This is the FEDERAL government shutting down, so we are not talking DMV, welfare, unemployment, etc. I trust the Chris Noth’s of this world know that people in Washington DO take vacations. They DO go home in the evenings, so the goverment is “shut down” 16 of every 24 hours anyway. I assume they know the president plays golf and goes off on vacation to Hawaii from time to time. Does this give them anxiety attacks? Do they take the first Gulfstream to Washington to rant against the 5:00 pm rush hour.

    “Go back. Go back!! Back to the desks!!! What will happen to us for the next 16 hours???”

    2. This racism thing is a little thin. Do you suppose that the MSM and Chris Noth would see racism in opposition to the president if he were Allen West, as I dearly wish he were?

    As the British say, one doesn’t know where to look (meaning that someone is acting so embarrassingly that you cannot look at THEM).

    • Patrice De Wees

      The fact that you can say Allen West (a complete and utter fool!) should be president speaks volumes!!

      • Hank Rearden

        Well, it speaks volumes about ONE of us.

        • Patrice De Wees

          Indeed.

  • Hass

    This is another reason why that Muslime POTUS is able to get away with everything he does.
    The MSM and the “we know what’s best for everyone” (Hollywood) cry racism for every constructive criticism the GOP makes. They’re turning the US into a one party system.

  • Demetrius Minneapolis

    Akin to MR.Noth’s TEA party idea should be a proposal that dictates that if a voter cannot correctly answer three simple questions pertaining to the election in question, they lose their voting privilege.

    Seriously, do we want braindead ‘tards to have the opportunity to elect another loser like Obama/Pelosi/Reid/Thurmond/etc? Do they know the difference between debt and deficit? Do they understand GDP?

    An amendment needs to be introduced so only citizens who care enough to know the issues have the right to vote.

  • Madame_deFarge

    Apparently Chris Noth can memorize scripts and standard propaganda but is incapable of independent thinking. So limited in fact that he repeats the lowest attack on people about whom he knows absolutely nothing.
    Sigh…add another ‘too stupid to watch’ to my list of uninteresting ‘actors’. Sorry, Chris you are in shallow water. Sad to see these people make to middle age without a clue.

    • glpage

      “Apparently Chris Noth can memorize scripts and standard propaganda but is incapable of independent thinking.”

      I think it was Burt Prelutsky, a former screen writer, who said something similar about the blathering of actors such as Noth.

      • Marlin B. Newburn

        What happened to Burt? I enjoyed his articles.

  • defcon 4

    “Horse whipping.”, that’s kinda like flogging right? Maybe Noth would be happier in any one of the wonderful islam0nazi states of the world where flogging is an institutionalized form of punishment.

    I watched all the Law and Order reruns, and besides its obvious populism, some of its major characters mouthed anti-Semitic sentiments, including Chris Noth. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, he apparently had gaps in his education. See http://clarespark.com/2010/11/14/the-abcs-of-antisemitism/. “The ABCs of Antisemitism.”

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      The NYPD aren’t choirboys.

      Anti-Semitism is probably pretty common along with anti-black, anti-hispanic, anti-Asian comments.

      Don’t blame the show. I’m guessing it’s trying to be “real”.

    • defcon 4

      One of the newer law and orders Noth did had a disgusting episode that whitewashed islam0fascist terrorism in Israel, by portraying it as justified.

  • laura

    people, hes just an actor. why so much airtime? he was put on this earth to entertain. hes mr. big from sexinthecity, enjoy him. you’re also giving him free PR, that is what he wants.

  • Wolfthatknowsall

    You’d think that Chris Noth has played so many detective roles that he’d recognize a sociopath like Obama, when he sees one …

    • casha

      I like your reasoning, but that should also tell us what his acting is like. l.o.l.

  • Omar

    I am tired of hearing leftists complain about the nonexistent “racism” being the main reason as to why Republicans and conservatives oppose the policies of the president and his administration. First of all, for the record, Obama is a mixed-race president. He is half-black and half-white. His father was black and his mother was white. And yet, people on the left believe that the president’s race is only that of his father, who was neither American nor descended from West Africa (most blacks in the Western Hemisphere are descended from West Africa, by the way), but actually from Kenya , which is located in East Africa. People who assume that the president’s race is only that of his father are repeating the racist propaganda that was the infamous “one-drop rule” that was used in the South under Jim Crow. In other words, the left is using a racist and bigoted “rule” that was discredited a half-century ago to classify our president. Furthermore, the left is hypocritical and racist in their agenda because they act like bigots towards any person of a racial or ethnic minority who happens to be a Republican or a political conservative. Look how the left behaved (and still behaves) towards Herman Cain. When Cain ran for president two years ago, the left would not stop demonizing him and they called him all sorts of nasty, racist and bigoted names like “sell-out”, “Uncle Tom”, “race-traitor” and “suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.” Then when Cain was leading in the GOP primary polls, the left decided to force him out of the presidential race by falsely accusing him of “sexual harassment” (any expert on American history will tell you what false accusations like those made against people of color had led to in the past). That false accusations made against Cain by a bunch of leftist women paid by the MSM and the organizations of the politicalleft here in the United States led to Cain’s exit from the presidential race, thus securing the Democrats’ monopoly on black voters. The left’s behavior towards conservative minorities is reprehensible, yet the left can get away with these kinds of horrible behavior, and the left’s behavior towards Herman Cain is no exception. The left’s double standards lives on.

    When Gary Cooper was asked about his thoughts on a political issue, his reply was, “Why you’re asking me? I’m just an actor!” Those days are long gone. Now “actors” and “actresses” are considered high priest and priestesses who know more about politics than the average working stiff. And one must follw their thoughts rigorously and with no exception.

    • Idl

      To him, it MUST be racism. He and people like him hold the reasoned and high-minded position. If you were high-minded and reasonable, you would agree with him. To him, you’re racist….and stupid.

  • Marlin B. Newburn

    Critical thinking skills is absent among the infantalized and pampered class called liberal Hollywood actors. They speak on impulse and emotion, sans logic and honesty. See also, “preadolescent”.

  • johnnywood

    It is amazing that so many “brain-dead” liberal hacks “know” that all us conservatives oppose and resist lib. policies and laws just because Obummer is in the White House. What a clown.

  • antioli

    He should be considered as an actor well qualified to act in the series “The Walking Dead”. Perhaps even as one of the “Talking Dead”

  • Toni_Pereira

    Another clueless moron…

  • Jack Stringer

    Dear Mr. Noth,
    Please feel free to come to D/FW and horsewhip me. Hey, you’re a pretty big guy, you might get one or two whacks across my back with your whip. Then I will proceed to beat the holy shit out of you with your own tool and leave you on the lawn with your horsewhip sticking out of your ass.
    cordially, JBS

  • joespook

    By Noth’s own standards he is anti-Hispanic for criticizing Ted Cruz. Shameful.

  • EVILHASWONAGAIN

    Pray that God will strike him down….

  • g..man

    The average idiot does not understand. Ted Cruz listened to the will of the people and did what he was sent to Washington to do.

  • Casha

    Chris Noth and people like him have caused
    the word racism to mean no more than the words like “at, to, and, if, is, “.
    Whenever I hear someone say “racism” I just tune out because I figure their
    just another Liberal (Who by the way never mention that not voting for Mitt
    Romney can also be consider racist).
    Instead of showing that all they can do is
    make easy no brain comment about how everyone is racist when they don’t agree with THEIR president, what they should to try do is defend his tab
    of $1.4 billion he has racked up for his vacations on the tax
    payers money, ( more than any other president).
    Why doesn’t Chris Noth and all the others explain
    why we are lied to about the economy being so good while people are still
    losing their homes!
    Actually the fact is when it comes to this
    president and not agreeing with him about a health care plan that 92% of the
    country doesn’t want, maybe being called a racist is a good

    thing at least this once.

    Pathetic organization. Liberal is dead. Pick something new!
