Actor John Cusack slammed the United States on social media this week and said that the country is “f****** awful.”
In a lengthy Twitter thread, Cusack took issue with a tribute to the U.S. armed forces at a baseball game and complained that the tribute was made in partnership with the aerospace company Boeing.
“I was at a ballpark last night,” the High Fidelity actor tweeted. “And they did their support the troops ad — that conflate Boeing with troops serving — while supporting the gop — that means funding the insurrection — anti democratic forces — the opposite of what they claim to support — ‘US freedom-‘.”
Cusack continued: “They preach freedom at baseball games — but back insurrectionist coups and the overturning of elections — abc the party that would take away black and brown Americans right to vote. Yet they get to wrap themselves in the flag? Had enough yet?”
Cusack then called the U.S. “decadent” and referred to Republicans as “white supremacist criminals” before slamming the country as a whole.
“We aren’t great — we aren’t even mediocre — we’re f****** awful — full of cowards and corporate whores — Boeing gets to take out tax dollars — parade our soldiers — wrap themselves in the flag — while financially backing fascists? We have no leaders — no soul — just greed,” he said.
Open Secrets data show that Boeing donated more to the presidential campaign of President Joe Biden than it did to former President Donald Trump and also gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democrats’ Senate Majority PAC.
Cusack has long been a critic of Republicans and Trump, calling the GOP a “death cult” in 2018 while referring to Trump as a “serial sexual assaulting Nazi pimp.”
