Actor Is Calling for All-out Civil War

“There’s only been two times in the history of America where, upon the election of a president, the people en masse took to the streets,” he continued. “One was Abraham Lincoln, and the other was Donald Trump. And for obviously, you know, 180-degree different reasons, but both based on race.”

Apparently, calling for Donald Trump’s assassination in Hollywood is so last week — literally.

After Johnny Depp’s “joke” last week at the Glastonbury Arts Festival that it may be time for an actor to go all John Wilkes Booth and kill the president, another actor and director has decided he’s done with just calling for the president to be killed.

Instead, Rob Reiner — the “All in the Family” actor whose sobriquet “Meathead” is apparently applicable off the show, as well — begged for “all out war” directed at President Trump, conservatives, Fox News and, you know, stuff.

“When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war,” Reiner tweeted Monday. “US-Stay strong. #Treason.”

Of course, part of the problem is that Trump’s “collusion” with the Russians is an evidence-free assertion backed up mostly by liberal media outlets who echo Reiner’s sentiments. But why bother with the facts? He certainly didn’t.

“The way I look at it, if you are trying to take an overview — the holistic approach — we are fighting the last big major battle of the Civil War,” Reiner said shortly after last November’s election, according to The Hill.

“There’s only been two times in the history of America where, upon the election of a president, the people en masse took to the streets,” he continued. “One was Abraham Lincoln, and the other was Donald Trump. And for obviously, you know, 180-degree different reasons, but both based on race.”

Good grief.

There’s actually one through-line connecting the last three celebrities (Kathy Griffin, Depp and Reiner) to thuggishly threaten violence against Trump and/or conservatives: namely, a desperate attempt to stay relevant.

Once an accomplished actor and director (if you don’t believe me, rewatch “This Is Spinal Tap,” “The Princess Bride” or “A Few Good Men” — the man may be reprehensible, but he had talent), Reiner’s career hit a point of dramatically diminishing returns after he directed the astoundingly inappropriate, openly racist 1994 children’s film “North,” arguably one of the worst movies ever released by a major studio.

The film has to be seen to be believed, and I don’t advise it. Of “North,” the late Roger Ebert noted in one of his most notorious reviews that it was “one of the most unpleasant, contrived, artificial, cloying experiences I’ve had at the movies … I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it.”

Since then, with the exception of “The American President” and the critically-reviled “The Bucket List,” Reiner has delivered one bomb after another. In spite of the fact that he was one of the most famous actors of the 1970s and directors of the 1980s and early 1990s, younger readers — even those well-versed in film — might not even know who he is.

So, what’s the best panacea for a broken career in Hollywood these days? Hate on Trump! Hate on conservatives! The more coarse, the more violent, the better. I mean, if you have an actual career, sure, that’s a pretty bad decision — you don’t see Emma Stone holding up the blood-soaked effigial head of the president, after all — but if you’re Rob Reiner, you have nothing to lose.

In closing, I’d like to note that, rather unsurprisingly, Reiner was vehemently against the Iraq War. However, much like St. Augustine, Meathead has found himself a cause for a just war. He’s discovered a reason why brother should fight brother and why bodies should be strewn across American fields like they were at places like Antietam and Gettysburg.

And that cause is … because his party lost an election. Nice work, Rob. If it makes you feel any better, at least I can now say “North” isn’t the worst thing you’ve ever done.

With reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s description of Murray Rothbard’s work, it is a “unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.” Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.
