Hollywood Stars Told They Need to Save the World and Get More Political (VIDEO)

Hollywood may seem like a cesspool of liberalism, but there are some celebrities who are able to think for themselves — and they occasionally speak out. Unfortunately, most of the vocal celebrities are flaming liberals, like this actor who went on a rant against Donald Trump.

While most Americans want to see celebrities be less vocal about politics, Cromwell said that celebrities need to speak out more. He even named names and dropped some serious fearmongering, alleging that not only is the entire entertainment industry being threatened, but that Trump poses a threat to the entire world and all humankind.

“Martin Sheen would do it, Ed Asner would do it. There are a lot of people if push came to shove,” he 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.”

He continued by calling Trump an “idiot” and slammed him for scaling back Barack Obama’s climate change agenda. “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,” he continued. “We have to educate people. We have to educate people on the right.”

But the interview wasn’t all bad — Cromwell also insisted that liberals have to stop vilifying conservative Americans as well. “We can’t demonize people because of their political stance. We have to say: ‘Look, it won’t matter ultimately whether you’re Republican, radical right, or progressive’,” he said. “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.”

Cromwell has also been engaging in public protests in recent years, most notably at Sea World. In June, he also was sentenced to a week in jail for a 2015 protest in front of a power plant. At Sea World in San Diego, he was cited for trespassing in July.

“We did everything possible… nothing helps, because there is no interface between an ordinary citizen and the state. You have to go through gatekeepers,” he complained. “If people don’t know that the whole process is corrupted, obviously people now know that the police forces are corrupted. Do they know that their courts are corrupted? Do they know that their law is corrupted?”

He also complained about the lack of attention his protests have garnered. “And the only way to get the attention of the media, which is what gets our issue across, because if you tell a politician, it dies right there; the only way to get across is to get arrested. Even when we were arrested: no publicity,” he said. “Even when we were found guilty: no publicity. But when celebrities go to jail, wow, it’s a story suddenly.”

Finally, he slammed our prison system, calling it inhumane. “I was shocked that both the prisoners and the guards suffer from the lack of humanity and care that we assume that anyone who goes to prison deserves – even though we have over two million people in prison,” he claimed.

Do you think Cromwell is right?
