(politico) Harry Belafonte has spoken out against President Barack Obama, but that doesn’t mean he supports Mitt Romney.
Asked whether he’d like Romney to win the election, Belafonte told the Hollywood Reporter, “Only if I would like to see the end of civilization. No, absolutely not.”
“Mitt Romney is not my cup of tea at all,” he added.
The singer has previously criticized Obama, charging that the president lacks moral courage.
Dismayed at the state of the nation, Belafonte told THR, “…I think the period now is the most challenging I’ve ever lived in.”
“The power in many societies has become almost absolute,” he said. “Those who have the power in the free enterprise system start to crush societies and create wars that are unholy. What we did during the Bush period, what we still continue to do, even with Barack Obama, is the continuency of not changing the paradigm, of not changing the view.”
