Americans are currently sitting atop a powder keg of political strife that may be unprecedented in our lifetimes, and there are very few out there who are looking to dampen the fuse.
This is especially true in Hollywood, the land of make-believe, where the most prominent individuals live such lavish lifestyles that they couldn’t fathom the sort of chaos that could be on the horizon. They have been, and will be, sheltered from that mess, leaving them to inflame tensions at will with very little concern for their own futures.
Comedian David Cross provided a stunning example of this naive nonchalance this week as he delivered a profane and blistering argument against unity.
The Mr. Show and Arrested Development star is calling for “blood” in a tweet on Saturday.
Cross joins a host of left-wing Hollywood celebrities who have rejected Joe Biden’s call for healing. Actress Rosanna Arquette called the Republican Party the “Nazi Gestapo” while comedian Wanda Sykes claimed that all Trump voters are racists.
Cross’ tweet included profanity that is unfit for print: “[Expletive] that. I want blood.”.
The tweet remains intact on Twitter, despite the platform’s policies against the inciting of violence.
