Hollywood celebrities rejected any sense of patriotism this past 4th of July, and used the Independence Day weekend to destroy the United States as a repressive country where women can’t have abortions, racism is rampant, and former President Donald Trump is and still is a free man. loose.
Stars including Barbra Streisand, Jessica Chastain, Bette Midler, Ron Perlman and Rob Reiner took turns criticizing the country and mocking the idea of ”independence.” Their outrage comes at a time when the left is touting the wholesale rejection of the Fourth of July, along with a belief that the United States and its founding institutions – especially the Supreme Court – are illegitimate.
Barbra Streisand helped lead the impeachment, sounding the alarm about Trump by claiming that “our Democratic Republic is still in danger” because of the former president.
This 4th of July, our democratic republic is still in peril by the authoritarian right led by Donald Trump and his bidder for the big lie about the 2020 election.
