Hollywood elites went all-out to support Joe Biden and Black Lives Matter.
Challenging either is a death sentence in the entertainment industry.
But one top Hollywood star doesn’t care, so he crushed Biden and BLM with a brutally true statement.
For decades, Hollywood has used their influence to push the far-left’s agenda.
Anybody in the movie industry who challenges that will find themselves out of work.
But there are a few Hollywood veterans who have been in the industry long enough that they don’t care, and are willing to speak their minds.
Hollywood legends like James Woods and Jon Voight regularly use their influence to push conservative ideas.
That is likely why the two haven’t appeared in any major movies in years.
Woods in particular has made a name for himself taking to Twitter with provocative tweets and vocal support for President Donald Trump.
Trump himself has thanked Woods for his support, and tweeted in support of the actor when he was temporarily suspended from Twitter.
Woods again caused controversy for all the right reasons in the last few days when he tweeted out a message to Joe Biden and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, blaming the Democrat “defund the police” movement for violence in cities like Chicago.
The tweet is in response to an article about Biden meeting Lightfoot this week, and reads:
“Criminals will always have guns and will always use them with little regard for the lives of innocents. The only way to end crime is to wage war on gangs in America. As long as Democrats continue to defund the police, America’s streets will run with blood.”

Lightfoot claims she does not support defunding police as her city is facing historic levels of violence.
But she proposed cutting $80 million from the Chicago police budget in 2020 amid Black Lives Matter’s violent rampages last year.
Violence continues to climb in the city, with 72 people being shot in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago over the Independence Day holiday weekend, including a number of children.
So far this year, Chicago has suffered more than 350 murders, with over 2,100 shooting victims.
In response, Democrats like Lightfoot and Biden attack police and want to eviscerate the Second Amendment, restricting law-abiding Americans’ rights so they’re left defenseless against criminals who will never obey Democrats’ gun bans.
As Woods correctly points out, the vast majority of gun crime in Chicago is the result of gang activity.
And as ABC notes, there are an estimated 100,000 gang members in Chicago compared to just 12,000 police officers.
There has also been a 25 percent increase in gang activity in Chicago in recent years.
Instead of focusing on that, Lightfoot and other Democrats prefer to attack the brave police officers on the front-lines of the violence their failures have let continue.
