Kurt Russell left the Liberal community speechless last year when he announced that he had a pro-gun stance during an interview where was promoting his movie The Hateful Eight.
This year, the Hollywood legend has outraged the Left again, only this time by admitting that he is something ‘far worse’ than a Republican. Russell made his remarks to the Daily Beast:
“I’VE HEARD SOME PRETTY ROUGH THINGS THROUGH THE YEARS THAT WERE REALLY UNDESERVED, BUT THE NUMBER ONE THING WAS MY CASE WAS WORSE, BECAUSE I COULDN’T SAY, “I’M A REPUBLICAN, SORRY.” I WASN’T A REPUBLICAN, I WAS WORSE: I WAS A HARDCORE LIBERTARIAN.”
Russell explained that he usually didn’t talk about his political views publicly, but his friends knew about his views because he was outspoken in private. He said that the issue of his pro-gun stance came out because of an interviewer who just wouldn’t let the issue drop.
“…THIS GUY JUST WOULDN’T STOP. HE JUST WENT DOWN THIS ROAD AND I WENT, ‘OK,’ AND TRIED TO BRING IT BACK A COUPLE OF TIMES TO THE MOVIE BUT HE JUST WASN’T HAVING IT.”
The man who played Snake Plissken twice in the ‘Escape From…’ movies also talked about how he came to become a Libertarian and how he find himself thinking the way he does now.
“When I was a young guy, I was finding myself not quite being able to see the things that were going on and buy into a political culture. I didn’t know what to do, so I finally said, ‘Why don’t I go back and see what the Founding Fathers were all about, and see how that stacked up.’ Well, I found them and I found Libertarianism. They were pretty radical guys, and damn smart, and I just believe in that old-time stuff and think they had great ideas.”
