Actress Rose McGowan: Democrats “Are in a Deep Cult”

Fight tech tyranny. Join Dan on Parler @dbongino.

Famous actress Rose McGowan, in her first Fox News appearance, had some harsh words for her fellow travelers on the Left.

In her appearance on Fox News Primetime, McGowan said:

“Well, as some of you know and some you have don’t know if you have heard my name or read anything on me in the media, I grew up in a cult. It was a very famous cult called Children of God. It gave me a superpower. It gave me the ability to see the control and the propaganda machine especially in the U.S. for what it is and how it harms people.

How the left can harm people just as much as the right if they go very, very deep into it and ignore other aspects of kind of reality in a way. You are serving a master that may not be serving you. I say I come in peace. I’m not here to make people feel bad about their political choices. I am here to say that you might be in a cult, too, if you don’t know the signs. I do believe Democrats most especially are in a deep cult that they really don’t know about and aren’t really aware of.

I leave the Republicans alone more because I do respect people more that are like this is what we are. This is what we are about. This is what we are against. Whereas I find the Democrats are really pretty much almost against all the same things. They are against changing the world for the better and for keeping a system in place that is for so few people and benefits so few that they masquerade as the helpers — we would do this, the world would be perfect if only those Republicans would get out of the way. Well, OK, you have got control, so now what? What are you going to do to make the world better?

I am embracing in my life right now really just almost healing in a way, not just for me but for so many others. The MeToo media period, it was just a trigger for so many men and women alike, everybody, really. It was a painful period for many people as it was for me. My persecution and awakening from being a Democrat was so much what I do now. So much about realizing how hardcore of a cult it is. What it does to women and the people it says it is going to help? Then why haven’t they achieved anything?”

McGowan’s comments are a bit reminiscent of some of the arguments Jonah Goldberg makes about tribalism in, Suicide of the West. They also echo one of Ann Coulter’s best quotes: “Liberals hate religion because politics is a religion substitute for liberals and they can’t stand the competition.”

The sad truth is that Rose McGowan is right. Liberals have largely given up on arguing for their positions and trying to convince or even show people that they’re right.

Instead, they’re all about pushing propaganda on children, censoring people who disagree with them, bullying people into taking their positions, and disqualifying anyone who disagrees with them because their motives must be bad. These are the same sort of behaviors you’ll see in a cult. You’ll also see the same kind of staggering hypocrisy. For example, you’ll hear liberals talk incessantly about income inequality, but it’s places like San Francisco and NYC, that are completely controlled by liberals, where you’ll most clearly see it on display. You’ll find that liberals are almost inevitably in charge of every ghetto in America. So, if liberal policies work, why are they still ghettos? Are Republicans the ones ruining Compton, Detroit, and Baltimore? Really? Whether you call it cultism or tribalism, it’s not healthy and over the long haul, it leads to disastrous results.
