Hollyweirdo Jeff Daniels: It’s the end of democracy if Trump is reelected

One of my all-time favorite movies is the 1996 Fly Away Home, about a 13-year-old girl, played by Anna Paquin, who raised a flock of orphaned wild Canadian Geese and, solo-flying an ultralight aircraft, led them thousands of miles south to their winter home in a bird sanctuary in North Caroline. Jeff Daniels, 64, played the girl’s dad.

Daniels, alas, is a hateful rabid leftist who is devoid of reason and prone to hysteria.

Currently acting in To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway, Daniels has confused fiction for reality, seeing himself as the noble but fictional Atticus Finch when he actually more resembles the idiot he portrayed in the two Dumb and Dumber movies.

As reported by Erik Pedersen for Deadline, during an appearance yesterday, May 20, on far-left network MSNBC, Daniels painted supporters of President Donald Trump and a “wing” of the Republican Party as white-supremacist racists. He also hyperventilated that the re-election of President Trump would be “the end of democracy.”

Daniels said. “And I think there are people in the Midwest, between the coasts…who have to make a decision now. You have to decide whether, like Atticus, you believe that there is still compassion, decency, civility, respect for others — ‘do unto others,’ remember that? — all that stuff you guys believe in, and you still voted not for Hillary or for Trump. Where are you now? If the big gamble is to go all the way to November 2020 … and lose, that’s the end of democracy.

The topic then turned to race in America. Quoting a line from the play, Daniels said, “A mob is a place where people go to take a break from their conscience. … That’s what I see when I look at Donald Trump’s rallies, that’s when I see the lies he’s spewing at these people, and people going, ‘I gotta believe in something,’ and he said he’d bring my manufacturing job back and she didn’t, and I’m all in.’ But … at the end of the day, it’s race. It’s race. This is about the Republican Party — or a wing of it — going: ‘This is our last chance to save the party. And if we don’t, it’s the end of the Republican Party.’ And the only way they can do that was to tap the race button and say, ‘Go ahead, it’s OK.’ And [Trump] did. And they did. That was the only card they had left to play, and they played it. And they aren’t going to go quietly.”

He added: “I need people to stand up and be heroic. Because democracy is at stake.”

You can hear him hyperventilate for yourself by going to Deadline for the video.

The Deadline article received 8 comments. Below are the comments critical of Daniels; they are a hoot:

“Translation: if we don’t get our way it’s not democracy. Boo hoo.”

“Such an uncharacteristically even handed, unemotional response from an actor.”

“Will Jeffy promise to move to Canada if Trump wins again? Pretty please!”

“Poor Jeff. The dumber of Dumb and Dumber. Stop watching MSNBC and CNN. He needs to go talk to real Americans, not the sycophants backstage at his play. He’ll quickly find he’s not in touch with reality.”

“Wrong again Jeff it won’t be the end of Democracy it will just be the end of the Democrat party. Your party. The crazy party that is too afraid to do anything that’s middle of the road. Your party is now so far to the Left you have all gone off the cliff that’s why Trump will win again in 2020 so shriek all you want it won’t help.”

Yes, given Carey’s latest painting and this moron, “Dumb and Dumber” is in fact a dual biography.

Good grief! When someone spouts such incoherent, nonsensical, babbling rhetoric, it is just impossible to consider them to be one who is dealing with a full deck. I just have a difficult time understanding why it is that actors, or those who reside in Hollyweird have such a total lack of actual common sense. Is it because their minds become warped by “playing fictional characters?” If that be the case, then it is a horrible waste of human flesh, all these folks should have been forced to work real jobs, in the real world, and have to deal with real… Read more »

So, if the majority of Americans decide that Trump is worthy of a second term, how does this “destroy” democracy? And, once again, why do actors and athletes think their opinions are the only ones that matter?

So much for paying $150 a seat to see a play at his “Purple Rose Theater” in Chealsea Michigan… can’t feed the beast.

If Daniels is suggesting that the election in 2020 is a “big gamble” – Trump is going to be re-elected in other words – what does he propose as an alternative? C’mon Jeff, spit it out, you chickensh*t. He played Joshua Chamberlain in Gettysburg, poorly I thought. Full of himself, another big nothing

We’re already living in an Oligarchy, who’s he kidding? Why doesn’t he move out of the country like the other Hollyweirdos promised to do when Trump got elected last time?

Seriously, I haven’t heard too much from Daniels—a great actor—in the political department since, well, ever. And he goes on to finesse his fine points. But then we have another actor, Jim Carrey, who just can’t stop painting disgusting pictures, and Robert Deniro, who just can’t keep his mouth shut. I am wondering: Are the casting directors, producers and agents enforcing some sort of politically correct activist code upon actors? As in, “Say something negative about Trump or your career is over?” Think about it: About ten or so years back, actor after actor came out and admitted that he… Read more »

One of Daniels’ greatest roles? The Newsroom…greatest speech about America isn’t the greatest nation any longer…but it used to be.

POTUS is going to be Donald J. Trump in 2020, it won’t be the end of democracy but it will be the end of the DemoKratic party if people continue to elect those clowns, ie Nasty Nancy, Chuckie, lopsided Nadler, Latrine Waters, and the rest of the choir, as it is now they are at the bottom of the pit and doesn’t look like they’ll be coming up for air any sooner, and they know it.

They are still desperately trying to flip the switch; that it’s the Republicans who are racist. Any thinking person can plainly see that the demoncrats blame the other side for that which they are guilty. Oh well, another four years of President Trump, and we may have purged the world of enough evil people to create calm and kindness for a while.

Jeff may be right, but for other reasons. The 2020 election may indeed be the last election.

I’d be surprised if America didn’t find itself embroiled in a hot civil war before 2025, when the next president would take office (assuming Trump wins). Even if he loses, a civil war might happen anyway.

And any semblance of America as we once knew will most likely be gone.

I love “meremortal’s” comment on Jeff’s reasoning: “Democracy will be the end of Democracy?” Brilliant! And, Jackie Puppet—I hope you are wrong, but my husband and even some of my teacher collegues who supported Trump the last time (against all odds in theObamaAdoration-Society of US SchoolTeacherUnions)……believe that some sort of Civil War is imminent in light of our identity politics today—no matter WHOM wins any election hereafter…every election is a grenade with the pin already pulled on election day. Of course, with the understanding that the “Antifa” and secularists , Dems, and socialists, and “resistance” factions will be the ones… Read more »

The Founding Fathers feared democracy as much as tyranny

Do these people not see how intolerant, rude and tyrannical they are? Sometimes I put myself in someone else’ place and try to imagine sitting there listening to this without screaming……”Bullshit”. So in this leftist contrivance we live in, screaming at and insulting people, not to mention physical violence and depriving others of their Constitutionally protected rights is OK? As long as everyone says the same thing and follows orders they’re fine with that. A guy like this loser hopes that his owner will notice how servile he is and throw him a bone. Nothing but a mindless, slobbering drone.… Read more »

“…you believe that there is still compassion, decency, civility, respect for others — ‘do unto others,’ remember that? — all that stuff you guys believe in, and you still voted not for Hillary or for Trump. “

Yes, that’s exactly WHY we didn’t vote for Hillary, you moron.

Interestingly, everything he said in disparagement of the GOP party (and its constituents) is also exactly how I would describe the Democrat party, and those who voted for them… the “mob” and “race” crap.
