Actress and activist Rose McGowan spoke out against the current climate in society when it comes to politics. Having grown up in a cult she went on to explain how she realized the cult-like aspects of extreme politics, most especially among Democrats.
McGowan, who famously spoke out against Harvey Weinsteins sexual abuse, explained to Fox News host Tammy Bruce how she had been raised in The Children of God cult, which she claimed has given her the superpower of discerning the control and propaganda machine of politics on both sides.
I am not here to make people feel bad about their political choices, McGowan said. But I am here to say that you might be in a cult too if you dont know the signs. And I do believe Democrats, most especially, are in a deep cult that they really dont know about and arent really aware of.
After claiming the Democratic Party masquerades as a party that wants to help people, McGowan said, My persecution and awakening from being a Democrat was so much about what I do and what I say now and so much about realizing how hardcore of a cult it is. And how much it does to women and the people it says its going to help. Then why havent they achieved anything?
Look at your own belief systems and get free, she added.
McGowan later went on Twitter to defend herself for going on Fox News, I did an interview on Fox News that it causes such a cognitive dissonance as someone who was, you know, at least basically from when I set foot in America, a Democrat, because thats what my mother was, never questioned that Fox is the enemy. And tonight theyll run with, you know, Rose McGowan says Democrats are in a cult, but I also said Republicans were, too.
If you lean deep into anything and refuse to hear anything else, and youre serving a master that theres no evidence is serving you, then maybe youre in a cult, she added. And that was my message.
In a response to the video that some Twitter users claimed was an example of the mindset McGowan was talking about, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann tweeted, If you cant tell the difference between the Republican Death Cult and the Democrats, let me summarize for you: youre full of sh*t. And blocked.
