Alas, this is something both the American 'left' wing and 'right wing' do have in common:
Ed Asner Says, 'We Are Pigs'
Ed Asner has become boringly predictable.
When criminally insane terrorists kill thousands of our fellow citizens, it's our fault.
When evil dictators imprison and kill for mere dissent, it's our fault.
When entertainment jobs depart from places like California, it's our fault.
Why? Well, in Asner-world, it's because "we are pigs."
Recently, at the 72nd Annual Couchiching Conference in Canada, Lou Rant brought his lack of wisdom to a panel discussion on national cultural identity.
Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs is Canada's largest and oldest public affairs forum. It purportedly strives to bring people together to discuss vital public policy issues of the day. This, of course, makes aging left-wing Hollywood actors mandatory participants.
At the conference, Asner spoke about the filmmaking and television industries, two giants that in the last 15 years have grown in Canada, thanks to federal, provincial and local incentives.
He complained about the loss of jobs in the Los Angeles area and placed the blame for a myriad of society's tribulations on the Left's whipping boy: evil corporations.
"It's to your credit that you do that for your country," he said. "We don't do a damned thing in our country, because we are pigs."
The Left Coast Report explains that the reason the entertainment business flees from Gray Davis's California nightmare is the same reason that other enterprises split: high taxes, lefty burdensome regulation and the inability to make a profit.
