Rose McGowan says Democrats 'are in a deep cult' on Fox News interview, Internet asks 'who brainwashed her'
Actress Rose McGowan found herself being trolled after her brutally straightforward interview with Fox News presenter Tammy Bruce. The #MeToo activist said the Democrats are in a cult and put on a straight face as she pointed out that the said party is "against changing the world for the better." Her scathing statement has sparked immense outrage on social media.
This isn't the first time McGowan has called out the Democrats. In April 2020, she slammed the political party and news outlets New York Times and Washington Post for their silence on President Joe Biden's sexual assault allegations. The 'Charmed' star was surprised that the lawmakers straight-up ignored former Senate staffer Tara Reade's story.

Once a 'proud Democrat'
Later, McGowan expressed what she truly felt about the Democrats in a letter, which was the first time she used the word "cult" for the said party. "I used to be a proud Democrat. I used to be a proud American. I would have died for this damned country and its ideals. I was raised to be a proud Democrat," she wrote in her letter and added: "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. But now I know too much. And I feel really quite a sense of loss tonight."
In her recent interview with Bruce, McGowan bashed what she termed the “propaganda machine” in the US. The actress also referenced her upbringing in the Children of God cult, and compared it to the Democratic party. “I am not here to make people feel bad about their political choices,” McGowan said. “But I am here to say that you might be in a cult too if you don’t know the signs. Democrats, most especially, are in a deep cult that they really don’t know about and aren’t really aware of.”
"I find the Democrats are really, pretty much almost against all the same things," she said. "They’re against changing the world for the better and they’re for keeping a system in place that is for so few people and benefits so few but they masquerade as the helpers."
She also acknowledged that being on the channel would draw criticism — particularly among those on the left. “I’m going to get a lot of hate for being on Fox News,” McGowan said. “That’s just a fact.”
I’m really sad, and I’m really tired. I normally share thoughts, but tonight it’s emotion. pic.twitter.com/mhtaoW6dTd— Rose McGowan (@rosemcgowan) April 29, 2020
Rose McGowan's Twitter ban
McGowan's honest and at times her too honest statements may have brought her trouble over the years. Recently, she was suspended by Twitter over a controversial post that came with a photo of a naked Bill Clinton being massaged by an unidentified woman. The image was later confirmed as an art piece by British artist Alison Jackson. "If you put your party over principles, over ethics, you are the problem not me," McGowan's tweet read. "You can come for me all you want, I do not care. This is your cult leader. If you aren't disgusted, go take a long hard look in the mirror & wake the F up."
She later called out the micro-blogging site for suspending her account over an artwork. "I was just trying to drive a point home about a disgusting human doing a disgusting thing," McGowan explained in a video by RT. "I know that Twitter is trying to silence me and I know a lot of powerful Democrats are behind it."
'She doesn't even live in America'
Meanwhile, the Internet has gone berserk over McGowan's comment. One wrote: "It makes me sad to hear Rose McGowan talking like this. Who brainwashed her?"
"Rose McGowan goes on Fox News to say that Democrats are in a cult & are, "against changing the world for the better," right after Dems unilaterally pass legislation to cut child poverty IN HALF & are working on the most climate-oriented policy America has ever had. OK Rose," one wrote, another added: "You nailed it. It's all about the controversy. She is still struggling with relevance. Consequently, she will do anything for attention."
"Rose McGowan doesn’t even live in America. I’m neither Democrat nor Republican but this is fuckin funny," one user posted.
