Democrats are charging full steam ahead with the second impeachment of Donald Trump, with many establishment GOP figures jumping on board for the ride.
However, some on both sides of the aisle are warning that initiating another divisive impeachment process at the beginning of President-elect Joe Biden’s term could be highly destructive. Famous liberal actress Rose McGowan is one such dissenter, calling the push “cult propaganda” for anti-Trump leftists, as well as a “mass distraction.”
Operating as one
Democrats tend to operate as one, especially where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) leads. No matter how outrageous her decisions are, her iron grip on the party typically prevails, as evidenced by the last harebrained — and ultimately failed — impeachment attempt in 2019.
However, McGowan is not a part of the House, and though a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, McGowan appears to see right through the rhetoric surrounding the second impeachment and has exposed it for the political drivel that it is.
“This impeachment is Cult propaganda,” McGowan tweeted on Thursday. “A theater of mass distraction. US cult members on the left will cheer, those on the right will be in a fury. And the country’s starving, sick & poor will sink farther & farther,” adding sarcastically, “Good thing the Elites are leading us!”
Conservatives and liberals have historically had little-to-nothing in common, but the manipulation by both the Democrat and GOP establishment of the American public in recent months gives the two ideological factions common ground.
McGowan is the originator of the “Me Too” movement, revealing in 2017 that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein had sexually assaulted her a decade earlier and that Hollywood elites were complicit in helping the now-disgraced producer cover up his extensive crimes.
Elites reverse course
In contrast to McGowan’s statement, most of Hollywood has enthusiastically thrown its weight behind the impeachment push, with many issuing press releases supporting conviction and removal of Trump and even more drastic actions such as the imprisonment of Trump.
The elites have shown their hand with the second impeachment of Donald Trump more than ever before.
Prior to last week’s riots at the Capitol building, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat establishment were insistent that the GOP is responsible for the economic suffering of Americans because of their refusal to approve Pelosi’s coronavirus relief plan.
Pelosi used Americans as a bargaining chip, insisting that her only priority was helping suffering Americans and business owners. As soon as Joe Biden’s election was certified, suddenly, coronavirus relief is the farthest thing from Pelosi’s mind.
For months, the left championed the election of Joe Biden as the only solution to the growing ideological rift in America — a rift that they most certainly created and exacerbated — and immediately turned around as soon as that goal was achieved to continue attacking Trump and his supporters more than ever before.
