Ed Asner: Opening Remarks


Thanks for sharing that. Ed is a wise wonderful soul.

Yes, beautiful speech

Yes, beautiful speech indeed. Thank you for sharing it.

If my memory is correct, Ed Asner was the first major celebrity to speak out for 9/11 truth (early 2004).

I think you're right

Asner may have been the first major celebrity to speak out. He has always been vociferous -- unafraid of political or social stigma or potential backlash at many times throughout his life. I find it also interesting to note, for those of you who do not know, that Ed is also a Jewish man, having been raised Orthodox. He is also quite active at a Temple here in Los Angeles. He has no religious, political or psychological barriers obstructing his ability to seek the whole truth -- and justice. When I occasionally read of the attempts to demonize certain religious groups (Jews, for example) in some posts--it saddens me. One musn't paint everyone with the same brush.
