“They won’t go to Dearborn, Michigan to stop the five times a day prayer call, but they will stop Christians,” Davi complained. As if somebody should go to Dearborn and stop the call to prayer.
It wasn’t just Bill O’Reilly going after the “Stop Hate, Dump Trump” group on Fox. Davi visited Your World Thursday and presented less vicious criticism, maybe because the “Stop Hate, Dump Trump” group is made up of many of his colleagues.
DAVI: I believe Donald Trump is the last stop for America, number one. Number two, I think that all these people that are coming out against Trump and calling it hate speech should find out why the Christians in Iraq, why the last monastery, the earliest monastery, was blown up. Why not talk about that hate speech? They want to blame Donald Trump because he said he wanted a temporary ban on Muslims because the system is broken, and to me that’s an egregious misrepresentation of what they’re trying to say. This is propping up Hillary Clinton.
Still, Davi acknowledged, “There are some great people involved in the whole thing. The great Norman Lear, who was a World War veteran, but he started the People for the American Way in the early 1980s against the ideology of the Evangelicals taking over America.”
Davi added, “It’s the same kind of stupidity that they did in London, trying to pin this on Donald Trump.”
“It kind of sends the wrong message,” Davi continued. “They’re about free speech, they’re about freedom of choice, aren’t they? And yet now they want to limit because someone is saying certain things in terms of immigration needs to be fixed. There’s a different agenda.”
“They won’t go to Dearborn, Michigan to stop the five-times-a-day prayer call, but they will stop Christians,” Davi complained. But he did call for a Hollywood summit, “a nice, left-, right-wing summit about these issues at the Hollywood Bowl. I would love to see that.”
“I wouldn’t hold my breath on that,” host Neil Cavuto said.
Then it was time to talk up Donald Trump.
“It’s time to have a guy like Donald Trump in office as President,” Davi said. “He’s built, he’s been able to cajole and get things done.”
“I don’t think Ted Cruz would win a general election,” Davi argued. He said Trump would “galvanize this country initially and eventually in a much bigger way.”
Cavuto gave Davi the stamp of approval to close out the segment: “Very good seeing you my friend. Actor, singer extraordinaire. Very nice guy, too. Robert Davi, He has survived the Hollywood culture and succeeded and thrived in it.”
It was no surprise that Fox would discuss the #StopHateDumpTrump campaign with an actor for Trump and without anyone from the campaign for fairness and balance.
