Take 46 minutes out of your schedule and listen up

I would have expected a lot of comments already - Silence before the storm ?

BTW, you can also read the text version - I did this.

It's the very first time that I have heard someone so outspoken against what America is doing (there may be others as vocal, but I haven't read them).

Food for thought.

I do fear though that this will just feed the general view that all Americans are 'evil', even if Harold does state in his text that this is not so.

Alex, I did not see it as an "all Americans are evil" speech. So I hope, that others will follow suit. I also recommend you listen to him. It is a speech and not an essay. Works much better when you listen to him.

@Alex - re: "there may be others as vocal, but I haven't read them"

Actually, Michael Moore (who I am sure would wish to be portrayed as a loyal American who simply doesn't agree with the current American administration) has consistently delivered a fairly similar message. His style lacks the gravitas of Pinter's though.
