WTF: Is Rob Schneider Woke Now?
On his Twitter, the comedian best known for saying "you can do it" a bunch of times in The Waterboy has revealed a deep understanding of America's political climate.
Even leading up the election, he was dropping truth bombs on his fans:
Who ever wins the Presidency, the cheer will be...— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 7, 2016
"ONLY FOUR YEARS!"
This election would be a lot more fun to watch if I was watching it from another planet.— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 9, 2016
This election is really about a repudiation of Big Media and Big Government. America does not like to be told who to vote for.— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 9, 2016
Despite the prevalent view that Donald Trump represents racism and misogyny, Schneider echoed Michael Moore's sentiments that the American people were attempting to disrupt the establishment:
Don't mistake that Trump's victory is about racism or misogyny. Americans are taking a chance on crazy. Because the same... is even crazier!— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 9, 2016
Since then, he's acknowledged and condemned the racist rhetoric that has come from the Republican party:
'@DonaldJTrumpJr comments about Hispanics & others are reprehensible & we must hold him accountable. We also need to move forward.— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 12, 2016
Most recently, he's been tweeting platitudes of encouragement for the downtrodden:
A Nation that scapegoats its most vulnerable people, ceases to be a nation. A Nation that is fearful, is no longer free.— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 16, 2016
We as a Nation and as a people need to come together now.— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 17, 2016
We can't just wait until the Super Bowl!
You can only see the stars when it's most dark.— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 17, 2016
That said, he's still critical of his fellow celebs who fail to acknowledge the hypocrisy of the Democrats:
Dear @robreiner— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) November 17, 2016
So you're ok with drone strikes on civilians, lack of transparency & prosecuting whistleblowers as long a Dem Pres does it?
Whether you agree with him or not, there's no denying that it's strange to see our favourite male gigolo get all Glenn Greenwald about the election. Maybe someone should give him his own political talkshow. After all, he can do it... all night long!
