few weeks ago, television icon Jimmie Walker, famous for his portrayal of J.J. Evans on the 70s sitcom Good Times, emerged as a critic of President Obama while promoting his book, Dynomite!: Good Times, Bad Times, Our Times–A Memoir. On Wednesday night’s edition of The Young Turks, Walker told Uygur “I also believe that in a hundred years from now, because they are the squeaky wheel, gay marriage will be legal,” and that people will ask “‘Who was against gay marriage? What idiot was that?’ I’m that idiot!”
He went on to tell Uygur he’s against gay marriage “on moral grounds, on the grounds that certain values, you’re brought up with,” and was unpersuaded by the Loving v. Virginia comparison.
