Cusack Calls for 'Satanic Death' of Fox News, GOP Leaders...

by EdHannigan / August 31, 2010 11:51 AM PDT
Sadly, this kind of thing is becoming all too common.


Actor John Cusack went on a caustic Twitter rampage Sunday evening, attacking former House Majority Leader **** Armey, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Fox News.


Cusack has long been outspoken about politics. He supported Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election and has contributed to The Huffington Post, but this is the first known time he has stooped to the level of making threats.

And while the U.S. Constitution protects Cusack's right to speak his mind, some critics say he should be more careful about what he says, since he has more than 200,000 Twitter followers.

That's a lot of left wing twits.

Serious or not, urging attacks on someone is too much.

If he thinks Fox News is all wrong, fine, he can say so without calling for violence against them. The same for Gingrich and others. He can think what ever he likes of them, but this is out of line and shouldn't be.

I'd have Cusack as "arrest on sight" if he showed up in front of the FOX building.

Good point,

wonder if Fox or others have considered restraining orders against him from being near them.

Ticks me off, though, I liked some of his roles, mostly older movies. Of course, I don'tbelieve you have to let beliefs of an actor dictate whether you can enjoy their work, but it can work against them in your mind.

I hate that

In reply to: Good point,

I hate it when some actor does something that gives me such a bad feeling toward him or her that I can no longer enjoy their screen work simply for what it is. Sometimes if they are really good it doesn't matter as much.

So no loss to me if his career craters due to this.

Read the Comments on soe of the more left wing sites, or on You Tube videos of Beck Rush, etc. They are full of that kind if crap. He's just playing to his audience of haters.

But sadly I can't say there are no right wing nuts, they have their websites and videos too.

Extremists are just that, extreme, it doesn't matter which position they take, they will make it anathema to most folks with even a modicum of fair mindedness.

?John Cusack, bless you and your wisdom! You spoke for me and everything I have felt about what has happened to our country. Going to watch your movie "War Inc", and thanks for your viewpoint and work to show how corrupt this administration has been.
PS--loved Serendipity--one of my favorites for all time. Very touching.
