The crazies are coming out of the woodwork in Hollywood.
How crazy? Well, Jim Carrey’s back, and he’s (again) not funny (unless you’re thinking funny in the head).
“The GOP are now completely invested in Trump’s economy of LIES. They say they’re gonna give you HEALTHCARE while working to destroy it. They make up lies about refugees while KIDNAPPING INNOCENT CHILDREN! Vote Democrat. Help save the future. DON’T FOLLOW THE RED HAT TO HELL!” Carrey posted on Twitter, along with another of his fifth-grade drawings.
But others are jumping on the bandwagon, too, with exactly seven days to go before the midterm elections. Character actor James Cromwell — who starred in such movies as “Babe,” “The Green Mile,” “Big Hero 6,” and the TV shows “Boardwalk Empire” and “American Horror Story” — used an awards event this past weekend to vent his spleen and call for “violent revolution.”
“This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,” Cromwell said, according to Variety. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”
“He echoed these sentiments during his acceptance speech, where he warned that he believes the country is headed toward the possibility of a violent revolution,” Variety reported.
“We’re living in very curious times, and something is coming up which is desperately important to this country and to this planet, and that is an election, in which hopefully in some measure we are going to take back our democracy,” he said. “We will have a government that represents us and not the donor class. We will cut through the corruption, [and] we won’t have to do what comes next, which is either a non-violent revolution or a violent one, because this has got to end.”
Oh good, perfect time to call for a “violent revolution.”
