Though James Cromwell was honored at the fourth annual Carney Awards for his work as a character actor, the industry veteran has worked as a political activist his entire career.
On the red carpet at the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Calif., he candidly shared his thoughts about the current political climate.
“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 told Variety on Sunday night. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”
Cromwell later echoed his statement during his acceptance speech for one of the six Carney Awards given out that night.
“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. “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.”
His call was eerily familiar, with former Attorney General calling for blood in the streets shortly after President Trump won the election. See below.
After being called out for his blatant call for a Communist revolution, he began walking back the comments he made about there being “blood in the streets” if President Donald Trump isn’t stopped.
So you're saying there will be #Democrat blood in the streets?
That will only happen if they decide to prove how much of a #traitor they truly are. Of course, everyone knows that anyone who votes #Democrat is a #Communist traitor who should face appropriate punishment. pic.twitter.com/NMfb8BWjKs

The actor also added, “The Variety article used an out of context quote 4 a headline and got just what they wanted – twitter fired up. It would have been nice if they included the context of that statement in the article. I’m sure I would still be getting death threats but they would be more ironic.”

The Babe actor said last year that Hollywood figures getting more political could save life on planet Earth.
“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,” Cromwell said.
Of course we can never forget when the California Congresswoman, Mad Maxine Waters went on an insane screaming bout during a toy drive outside the Wilshire Federal Building.
After claiming Trump is”sacrificing our children,” referring to the illegal alien kids separated from their “parents” near the border, Waters again called for the president’s impeachment, triggering loud applause from her mindless minions.
“History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” she yelled, whipping up the crowd.
“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” she warned.
“Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants,” she continued as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep,’” she continued.
“And guess what,” she predicted, “we’re going to win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions and others, you really don’t know the Bible.
“God is on OUR side!” she declared, as the crowd went wild. “On the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable.”
“And so, let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she yelled.
A microphone helps pause the madness with feedback, but Mad Maxine continues.
“Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!” she yelled.
Waters was referring to Department of Homeland Security Kristjen Nielson, who was heckled in a D.C. restaurant, and later had protesters playing loud speakers outside her home.
Thanks to the American Mirror for the transcript.
Honestly though, can anyone expect any different from the lunatic who herself said she resents making America great again, who has openly embraced a man who has called for the extermination of Jews, promises slave reparations if Democrat regain control of Congress, and who thinks you are a bigot if you oppose Sharia law?
Mad Maxine needs to be retired to the mental health unit in Fort Leavenworth. It’s long, long overdue.
