Morgan Freeman Swipes at ‘Strange People’ in Tea Party, Limbaugh

God himself Morgan Freeman has been making the media rounds to promote Last Vegas, and during an interview with The Daily Beast he opened up about his views on the “strange people” in the tea party and the government shutdown that plagued Washington for two weeks.

When the shutdown was brought up, Freeman wasted no time in sharing what he really thinks of the tea party movement.

The lengths that people will go to to show their prejudices! You see some of these signs that say, “TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!” What the fuck is that? Whose country are you talking about? They are being pushed to the side, which is a good thing for them to realize: you don’t have the power you think you have in this country. Obama was legitimately elected president. If you don’t like that, fine, either move out, or make your point and get yourself elected, but don’t tear the country apart!

Freeman continued that they’re “allowing themselves to be controlled by a small contingent of people with a lot of money,” calling out the Kochs, Rush Limbaugh, and all the other “strange people” on the right wing.
