Rob Reiner, best known for his role as the “meathead” son-in-law of Archie Bunker in the All in the Family TV series, has worked hard ever since to claim that title outright. He’s long been a rabid opponent of anything contrary to his liberal, “out there” views. He has no qualms with saying outrageous things, including a call for an all out war.
Now comes this, as reported by Douglas Ernst in The Washington Times on Monday, June 26th:
Hollywood’s Rob Reiner says the U.S. is now in an “all out war” to save the nation from the likes of Fox News Channel and President Donald Trump.
The director of “A Few Good Men” is convinced that Mr. Trump’s associates colluded with Russian state actors to undermine the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and that Fox’s coverage signifies a “war” for the nation.
“When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” the producer and political activist said Sunday.
Mr. Reiner’s comments came less than two weeks after 66-year-old gunman James T. Hodgkinson shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others on an Alexandria, Virginia, baseball field. Mr. Hodgkinson, a former volunteer for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, died after a shootout with cops during the attack on congressional Republicans.
“Maybe wait a few months past the last time someone on your team tried to assassinate a congressman before calling for ‘all-out war,’ ” National Review’s Kevin Williamson responded, The Blaze reported.
