Actor James Cromwell to Hollywood: We Need to ‘Get More Political,’ ‘Educate People on the Right’
This movie actor thinks that liberals need to be MORE publicly out-spoken about their political views? Is he serious? If he is…
No. No, no, no. One reason of several I started this blog a few months ago was to precisely call out and catalog the liberal entertainer habit of spouting off political views publicly, and lecturing the American people, and to kindly ask them to please, please knock it off.
Celebrities: please stop discussing politics in public.
No, I don’t need you to “educate me” about politics. That is an arrogant attitude.
I am college educated – most of you celebrities I’ve read about are not. You either dropped out of college and did not get a degree, or you did not attend at all, but you think you are in a place to lecture ME?
Liberal actors (and singers) already publicly pontificate on politics far too much as it stands.
I have been right wing my entire life and was a Republican until a couple of years now (I am now, currently, no longer affiliated with any political party).
What annoys me and bothers me is that these liberal celebrities, who have never met me, who don’t know me, never the less act rudely towards me – to people like me who buy their records, watch their movies – and they behave rudely and condescendingly because I don’t share their political sentiments; they go on to their social media accounts and TV shows and interviews insulting anyone who is not a liberal.
I have a few posts on this blog already with numerous examples of different celebrities who have publicly insulted Republicans, conservatives, and anyone else who is not a liberal Democrat.
I would suggest that actors and singers shut up about politics in public. You’re alienating people who may otherwise buy tickets to see your movies or concerts.
Actor and activist James Cromwell insists that Hollywood actors and actresses must get more involved in politics and rails against the American justice system and President Donald Trump in an interview released this week.
“Martin Sheen would do it, Ed Asner would do it. There are a lot of people if push came to shove,” Cromwell said in an extensive interview with the Daily Mail. “This community has got to get more engaged. This community has got to get more political. More than our survival as an industry, our appropriateness is at stake. What’s really at stake is our humanity and all sentient life.”
In a rant against Trump, Cromwell called the president an “idiot” and said politics won’t matter if the planet is destroyed by climate change and our dependance on fossil fuels.
“It’s very easy to vilify an idiot who happens to be the President of the United States, but it doesn’t solve the problem,” the Oscar-nominated actor said. “We have to educate people. We have to educate people on the right.”

“It’s very easy to vilify an idiot who happens to be the president of the United States, but it doesn’t solve the problem,” Mr. Cromwell told The Daily Mail in an interview published Sunday. “We have to educate people. We have to educate people on the right.
“We can’t demonize people because of their political stance,” he said. “We have to say: ‘Look, it won’t matter ultimately whether you’re Republican, radical right, or progressive.’ All that will matter is that we’re able to drink the water, breathe the air, live on the land. That’s what’s threatened.”
Mr. Cromwell, who has been arrested multiple times for protesting environmental issues, said Hollywood needs to get more engaged.
“Martin Sheen would do it, Ed Asner would do it. There are a lot of people if push came to shove,” the 77-year-old said. “This community has got to get more engaged. This community has got to get more political. More than our survival as an industry, our appropriateness is at stake. What’s really at stake is our humanity and all sentient life.”
