Actor James Cromwell warned that there would be violence in the streets if Democrats don’t win the midterm elections, which are set for early November.
Cromwell, a longtime character actor, was honored at the Carney Awards and took the time to speak about what he thinks would happen if Republicans maintain control of Congress and the Senate.
“This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state—all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,” Cromwell told the Variety website on Oct. 29. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”
