Has-been former star of television’s Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Kevin Sorbo, never ceases to disappoint these days. Sorbo recently starred alongside Willie and Korie Robinson in the farcical take on religion that is God’s Not Dead, a theatrical attempt to demonize atheists as people who really believe in the Christian god but are angry with him. Sorbo is slated to star in an upcoming movie, Poison Sky, in which he plays a Norwegian shipping magnate who sells chemicals to the United States government–for chemtrails.
Given his moronic attempts to appeal to a conservative base, it is unsurprising that Sorbo has chosen to weigh in on the protests in Ferguson, Missouri that have popped up in the wake of the murder of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown.
Sorbo unleashed a hate-filled rant on Facebook, calling protesters “animals” and losers.”
Some may view demonstrators as concerned citizens fighting for justice after a young man was gunned down by a police officer–but to Sorbo, “It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are. It is a tipping point to frustration built up over years of not trying, but blaming everyone else, The Man, for their failures.” He added that, “Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the voted in has only made things worse for them, not better.”
Sorbo posted an excerpt from an article written for the Jewish World Review titled “Media Clueless About the Inner City.”
The media’s frenzy that descended upon Ferguson, Mo. once again demonstrates its complete ignorance of life in the inner city. Anyone who has survived the barrios and the ghettos would recognize the usual cast of characters that converge on these incidents and would stay far away from them. But no-these media lapdogs shove mikes in their faces and actually believe their ‘eyewitness’ versions that nearly always turn out to be bogus and nothing other than a self-serving photo op.
After a barrage of posts explaining to the actor exactly how racist he sounds, Sorbo removed the post and issued an apology. “ Yes. I am an idiot and do hold myself accountable for the way my post came off,” the actor said.
Did Jercules really learn a lesson, or is he simply attempting to dig himself out of the monumental hole he dug? Only time will tell.
