Actor Who Warned of ‘Blood in the Streets’ Back Pedals on Comment. Here’s What He’s Saying.

Guess he should’ve chosen his words more carefully.

Actor James Cromwell made a statement earlier this week in typical liberal melodramatic fashion about how if President Trump isn’t somehow stopped “now” there would be blood in the streets.

Many folks took this as some sort of thinly veiled threat, a call for Democrats and other leftists to go on a violent rampage against those on the right.

Now Cromwell is saying his comments were taken out of context and is trying to clarify that he was not calling for violence against anyone.

On the red carpet before Sunday’s Carney Awards, Cromwell told Variety that “if we don’t stop [Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.” He prefaced the statement by describing the state of American politics as “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,” the outlet said.

Later during an acceptance speech for an award he received, Cromwell, 78, talked more politics and “revolution.”

“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,” Cromwell said, according to Variety. “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 nonviolent revolution or a violent one, because this has got to end.”

After Cromwell’s words lit up the internet this week, he hit Twitter with a series of tweets clarifying his “blood in the streets” quote.

Nick Gillespie, editor-at-large for Reason, also questioned Cromwell’s choice of words and surprisingly, Cromwell actually responded, once again claiming his quote was taken out of context, saying he was referring to the blood of protesters.

Director Spike Lee Says Some Black Americans ‘Will Drink Orange Kool-Aid’ And Vote For Trump In November

Published

on

Infamous director Spike Lee is no stranger to making controversial statements, particularly when it comes to the issue of race relations, a reputation he’s not only well earned, but one that he continues to establish with his latest comments about black people who vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming election. Lee calls the support of Trump by black Americans to be “drinking the orange Kool-Aid,” which one can suppose he considers to be a rather clever little combination of pop culture statements. Apparently, if you have dark skin, you aren’t allowed to think for yourself and decide who you want to vote for based on what your own political beliefs happen to be. Instead, you need to forego your identity as an individual and cast your ballot as a member of the hive mind that is the modern-day Democratic Party. And yet, conservatives are considered the racist ones? Here’s more on this from the Washington Examiner: Lee is working on a new movie about the Vietnam War that features a character who is a black Trump supporter. “My co-writer Ken Wilmott and I to put some tension in the group. These four brothers who grew up, who fought side-by-side in the Vietnam War and are coming back 40 some years later,” Lee explained. “So everybody can’t be — everybody went off after they came back from the war, so people went their different ways and … I would like to add, played by the great actor Delroy Lindo, he really makes you understand why he’s wearing that hat, and you have sympathy for him.” Well, now. That film is no doubt going to be a fair and balanced portrayal of both the Vietnam War and what black Trump supporters are really like, right? Wrong. It’s a propaganda piece. That…

Willie Robertson, one of the star’s of “Duck Dynasty,” recently came out and stated that his family had become the victims of a drive-by shooting on Friday. Eight-to-ten shots were fired from the main road into his estate in the town of West Monroe, Louisiana. One of the bullets entered through the bedroom window of the home where his son, John Luke Robertson, lives with his wife Mary Kate and their infant child. Fortunately, no one in the home was injured by the shots that were fired. Here’s more on this from Yahoo News: “We were pretty shook up,” Robertson said in a Sunday interview with USA TODAY Network. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.” The property and houses on it are behind a fence and gate and located far off of the road. No arrests have been made. Robertson said multiple witnesses saw the truck in which the suspects were riding pass by the property at least once before firing the shots at 2:33 p.m. local time. Robertson went on to note this happened in broad daylight. According to Robertson, many members of the Robertson clan are currently living at his estate during the coronavirus outbreak, his daughter Sadie Robertson and her husband Christian among them. “Nobody was outside at the time, but everybody had been out about five minutes before,” Robertson told the media. “I had just gone to the store when it happened.” Witnesses said the vehicle involved in the shooting as a Ford F-250, white over brown in color, with big aftermarket tires and rims. The driver was described as a young, white male in his teens or early 20s. There were other individuals in the vehicle as well. Surveillance cameras captured the vehicle on video. Authorities are asking for anyone…
