Actor Alec Baldwin, a known critic of President Donald Trump, said earlier this week that his supporters are responsible for declining moral standards in the United States.
“American democracy has always been a struggle between the misaligned protections of specific freedoms and a raging, at times intoxicating, 12 cylinder economy,” he began in a lengthy social media post.
“It demanded vigilant/consistent regulation, compassion for the disenfranchised and the periodic display of a necessary sacrifice that allowed for the long term health of our society at the expense of short term whims,” he continued.
“The desecration of those ideals and the near moral collapse of this country falls squarely in the lap of Trump’s supporters, as opposed to Trump himself, who is merely what psychology labels the ‘objective negative function,’” wrote the “Saturday Night Live” star continued.
“Like fire, floods, and earthquakes, it destroys and only destroys, by its very nature. Without prejudice,” wrote Baldwin.
Continuing, he claimed, “It is Trump voters, particularly those who would re-elect him who bears the blame.
“For the undeniable and colossal destruction of everything that matters to us as Americans that cannot be merely monetized,” he said.
Last July Baldwin claimed that most people around the world believe that because Trump became president the vast majority of Americans “are outright racists.”
A few months later, appealed to the president’s supporters and asked them to “get rid of him,” presumably in this year’s November election.
And he ended 2019 by joining other left-wing Hollywood elites in encouraging people to take to the streets for protests in support of the House Democrats’ attempts to impeach President Trump.
