Actor James Cromwell warns of 'blood in the streets' if Democrats don't win election

Character actor James Cromwell was honored at the fourth annual Carney Awards, where he used his platform to call for change in the United States and warn of violence if President Trump and his allies remain in office.

Cromwell, a noted character actor known for roles in projects such as "Babe," “The Green Mile,” “Big Hero 6,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “American Horror Story,” is also a political activist who has worked with organizations such as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. He’s frequently been arrested for his role in planned, peaceful protests at places like SeaWorld and a natural gas power plant in New York.


Speaking to Variety at the event, he warned of the turn that he sees America taking and cautioned there will be “blood in the streets” if Republicans remain in control.

“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 said. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”

The star, who previously played George H.W. Bush in Oliver Stone's "W," echoed these sentiments during his acceptance speech, where he warned that he believes the country is headed toward the possibility of a violent 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,” he 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.”

Comedian Patton Oswalt hosted the event, which honored fellow character actors such as Joe Morton, Jessica Walter, Joe Pantoliano, Bruce Greenwood and M. Emmet Walsh.

James Cromwell is an activist who has demonstrated at SeaWorld, for PETA (can you say puppies and kittens) and power plants. But not once at Planned parenthood where the floor is covered in the blood of sacrificed human babies.

Nuff said.

Yet another Hollywood celeb that whose opinion on political matters means absolutely nothing to me. However, he should be reminded that it is liberals that generally abhor the possession of firearms, while Conservatives generally are in favor of private ownership. In other words, don't bring a knife to a gun fight.

Interesting note, most (underline that) Conservatives are not aggressors, they are defenders. They will wait until the fight comes to them.

Most (underline that) Liberals like to be yippy dogs, a constant barrage of truly annoying pestilence, and then when they finally get a response, jump up and down with 'see, see I told you so!!'

Even the most calm and even keeled people reach a limit, and if it's brought to their door, they will defend.

Exactly. I have never once initiated a fight, but I have finished every fight that I've ever been involved in. I generally try to avoid physical conflict by employing reason and logic along with a little humility. But some people insist on battle wounds.
