Actor Morgan Freeman has perhaps one of the most well-known voices and exudes a calm trusting demeanor. So it comes as a surprise that he is using his talents in a political ad that calls for the investigation of Russia and a dark plot of the villainy of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Freeman appeared in a video for the Committee to Investigate Russia, which also includes as members liberal Hollywood players in the political game.  According to media Outlet Daily Mail, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote in a Facebook post translated by TASS Russian News Agency: ‘Morgan Freeman has been roped in, just like Colin Powell.’

According to its website, The  Committee to Investigate Russia (CIR)is a non-partisan, non-profit organization and resource provided to help Americans recognize and understand the gravity of Russia’s continuing attacks on our democracy. All relevant information is aggregated in one place to provide context and allow users to see the full picture of what Russia has done and will continue to do unless we start paying closer attention.”

It’s advisory board consists of Max Boot, military historian and foreign policy analyst; James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence; Norman Ornstein, American Enterprise Institute resident scholar; Rob Reiner, director, actor, and activist; and Charles Sykes, a conservative commentator.

In the video, which can be seen below, Freeman declares, “We are at war”:

    In analyzing the Kremlins peculiar reaction to what Freeman said one can get a better perspective on the Kremlins motivations and also what it fears the most.

    As we all know Morgan Freeman is a famous Hollywood actor and celebrity, also as a celebrity he as well as other Hollywood actors with simular status get a lot of attention from the World media and press.

    THIS is what the Kremlin is so afraid of judging by its overreaction to his recent comments concerning Russia.

    The Global Media savvy Kremlin propaganda apparatus in Putin’s Russia knows only too well that IF Hollywood mobilizes against it then it will not be able to counter the massive influence that Hollywood can wield. With all the money that the Kremlin throws into its Propaganda effort to denigrate the West and the United States in particular, the Kremlin’s worst fear is a American response usiing all the resources at its disposal including the Kremlin propagadna machines worst nightmare. HOLLYWOOD.

    So speak up Morgan Freeman and by all means get other Hollywoood celebs to join in the chorus. I can litterally see Putin bitting his fingernails in fear right now.

    The title of this article is dead on the mark. I noticed nowhere in this piece is it mentioned that there is no evidence to prove Russia did the “so called hacking”. It’s really disturbing to see this kind of blatant propaganda being generated in a western society. It is good however that people have learned from the propaganda that got the U.S. into the illegal iraq war. I bet if a poll were done regarding truthfulness of this piece, with a question like “Do you think the content in the video is true or false” I suspect the vast majority of Americans would pick “False”. What a disgrace and stain on modern western society.

    Even prior to this blatant prostitution by an American actor, I have always considered any film starring Morgan Freedman to be mediocre and propagandized. CIA = Hollywood.
