Hollywood actress and #MeToo activist Rose McGowan called the Democrats and media a “cult” and said “this is deeper than a cover-up,” alluding to a majority of the establishment elite who’ve ignored or debunked credible allegations made by Tara Reade, the former Senate staffer who claims Joe Biden violently sexually assaulted her in 1993.
“I’m really sad, and I’m really tired. I normally share thoughts, but tonight it’s emotion,” McGowan tweeted Wednesday that was accompanied by a letter in which she outlined how she has lost faith in Democrats and left-wing media outlets like the New York Times and the Washington Post.
“I used to be a proud Democrat. I used to be a proud America. I would have died for this damned country and its ideals. I was raised to be a proud Democrat. When my youngest brother graduated as a fighter pilot at the Air Force academy, I wore a Vote John Kerry pin (lol,) got into verbal altercation with big who were mad I was a Democrat,” the actress said.

“They were twice my size and I had to listen to GW Bush give the keynote address and John Ashcroft sing his terrible eagle song. I lost count of GWB saying ‘terrorism’ at 47 because that’s what cult leader’s do and it gets boring. All because I thought democracy meant was I had a right to choose those who lined up with my values system,” McGowan added before asking “But what if there’s no one?”
“And I was always told it was the Democratic Party that were the good guys, that our papers were New York Times & the Washington Post and we as a family loved listing to All Things Considered and we’d talk about how much we loved Ira Glass’ voice,” McGowan continued. “But now I know too much. And I feel really quite a sense of loss tonight.”
“I am not a cynical person, but America goddamn,” Rose McGowan said. “Republicans have always been painted as the bad guys, and I’ve always seen them more as a cult, but now I realize so are the Democrats and the media. Marco and micro. This is deeper than a cover-up. And I’m sad because there’s death around all corners and shadows in the daytime. It hurts.”
McGowan’s lengthy letter comes after she called on Joe Biden to immediately quit his presidential campaign over Reade’s allegations.
“Fellow citizens, use your power, use your social media voice,” McGowan tweeted late Saturday. “Tweet at Joe Biden to end his campaign effective immediately.”
Reade’s explosive allegation that Biden forcefully penetrated her in 1993 was apparently confirmed over the weekend when a Larry King Live segment from CNN resurfaced showing Read’s mother referencing her daughter’s ordeal.
McGowan blasted the New York Times earlier this month for showing “favoritism” and “utter hypocrisy” when it comes to its coverage of Republicans like President Donald Trump versus Democrats like Biden. “Yes, you go after the reprehensible Trump, but leave Biden accusations alone. You are the problem,” she said.
Breitbart.com reports: Indeed, the Times was among the left-wing media outlets that breathlessly wrote more than 700 articles about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford. But over the past month, mentions of Tara Reade’s name in the paper are few.
And as Reade’s claims continued to become clearer, McGowan’s public shaming of Democrats, the media, and feminist groups grew louder.
“Fuck you to the silent media, fuck you to women’s groups, Gloria Steinem, & fucking take ass Oprah, fuck you,” McGown said last week. “All of you crow about your braver yet you do nothing.”
McGowan’s latest letter comes just one day after Hillary Clinton endorsed Joe Biden’s run for the presidency, which came a more than a week after Barack Obama’s endorsement. So it’s likely safe to assume that Rose McGowan is just getting started.
