People in the entertainment industry are expected to toe the left-wing line.
Those who don’t immediately get thrown out of the club.
And one Hollywood actor revealed the moment when he walked away from the Democrats.
Actor and comedian Rob Schneider has become a target of the left for his refusal to go along with the Democratic agenda.
Like so many in the entertainment industry, Schneider considered himself a liberal.
But the left went too far, and it forced him to walk away from the left.
For Schneider, his walkaway moment came because of California governor Gavin Newsom.
Upon the news of Tulsi Gabbard leaving the Democratic Party, Schneider said in an interview on Fox News, “It shouldn’t be such a shock. We don’t get ten parties, you get two. And I really feel like I don’t want the Democratic Party trying to run my life…And there’s not one aspect of your life that they don’t want to interfere with. So I had it with them. So I got out of California and moved to the slightly freer state of Arizona.”
Gabbard eviscerated the Democratic Party in her video, explaining, “I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoke anti-white racism, [and] actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms…”
Schneider explained that “taxes” were one of the issues that changed his mind; California has a state income tax of 13.3%, and the Democrats want to push it even higher in pursuit of nonsensical policies.
Schneider added, “I mean, Newsom pushed me over the edge…I mean, it’s just like, I just don’t think your life gets better there. It gets worse.”
The former Saturday Night Live star tapped into the thinking of many Californians who have left the state.
California has experienced net negative migration out of the state two years in a row, the first two times it has ever happened in state history.
Schneider continued, “You know something’s wrong when people say, like, if you put God and family and country first, that’s somehow controversial…How is that controversial? So I think at a certain point, you have to say enough of this, and stand up to it.”
Schneider recently criticized SNL for only catering to one side of the political aisle, which effectively turned the sketch show into an advocacy show for the DNC.
He said, “[W]hen Hillary Clinton lost, which is understandable, that she’d lose…Not exactly the most likable person in the room. And then when Kate McKinnon went out there on ‘Saturday Night Live’ in the cold opening…She started—dressed as like Hillary Clinton…and she started playing ‘Hallelujah’ [as Clinton] … I literally prayed, ‘Please have a joke at the end. Don’t do this. Please don’t go down there.’ And there was no joke at the end, and I went, ‘It’s over. It’s over. It’s not gonna come back.’”
Schneider is yet another entertainment celebrity who believes that the left has gone too far, and he can’t keep quiet about it anymore.
