“I might have to stop following @ksorbs,” tweeted New York blogger Kat George this morning. “He’s being very 1% lately.” Sure enough…1%, 47%, whatever, Sorbo definitely has a bee in his bonnet this morning.
It may have been a surprise to Kat—and to me—but most longtime fans of the Mound, Minnesota native who’s best known for playing the title role in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995-1999) were likely aware of his conservative political leanings. He’s donated to Republican political candidates and recently appeared on Sean Hannity’s FOX News show to speculate as to whether it was “racist” for an overwhelming proportion of African-Americans to vote for Barack Obama.
In this morning’s ALL-CAPS bender, Sorbo linked to a blog post on glennbeck.com praising comedian Adam Carolla for criticizing the sense of unwarranted entitlement supposedly possessed by not only participants in Occupy Wall Street but—wait for it—all of Generation Y.
So far, except for some grumbling about how not everyone can get rich starring in a 90s action show, the majority of Sorbo’s 18,000 Facebook fans seem cool with his views; multiple people, however, have criticized Sorbo on one important point.
