ACTOR DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON Slams ‘Snowflake’ Culture: “Putting us backwards”
100percentfedup.com ^ | Jan 11, 2019 | Staff

Actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has considered jumping into politics in the past:

“It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible.”

We wish he would do it because we have a feeling he understands the culture of the leftists who are offended by just about everything.

Johnson spoke at the Republican Convention in 2000 (see video below) and is a Registered Republican. He gets that the snowflakes are killing our freedoms including freedom of speech.

In fact, the WWE wrestler-turned superstar actor just slammed the “snowflake” culture in an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Star.

Johnson thinks complaints by liberal ‘snowflakes’ do a disservice to our soldiers who fought for freedom of speech:

“So many good people fought for freedom and equality…but this generation is looking for a reason to be offended. If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended…and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.”

Johnson claims that he may not agree with someone on politics but he will support their “right say or believe it”.

‘The Rock’ says that it’s just democracy and is thankful that we have the freedom now to be and do what we want:

“We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years.”

“People can be who they want, be with who they want, and live how they want. That can only be a good thing…but generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards.”

We agree 100% with ‘The Rock’!

He’s in for a world of racial crap, from the leftist, socialist, commie, anarchist demonkkkRATs, if he enters politics as a Republican.

The old joke “everyone has a right to my opinion” is not a joke to liberals. They’re offended by anyone with a different point of view.

Imagine what the PR would like if Johnson and Keven Hart do another movie together.

and most republicans will love him for doing it because we know that he becomes a target the moment he declares and that makes him a warrior out to slay leftist ideology and social values.

I’d be more impressed if he man up and endorse President Trump. But he’s too scared as to what it would do to his career.

He’s made anti-Republican comments in interviews, even after he appeared at the GOP convention, and he supported Obama for president.

Hollywood has just moved The Rock’s name to the undesirable column. Now he’s on the same list as is Tim Allen and James Woods.

Will this impact his career much? The Rock is a very popular actor. But on the other hand, Hollywood just loves to enforce blacklists.

Can’t have it both ways - first part has it the way it used to be and second part is today’s reality.. sadly!

Hasn’t hurt Willis, Stallone, et al.

He spoke at the 2000 GOP Convention.

It’s not like he’s been ignored for 19 years................
