In the liberal world of Hollywood, it’s considered risky for any actor to “come out” as a conservative. Luckily, there are still actors like Tom Selleck around that are not afraid to speak out about their conservative values.
Selleck has always been a proud conservative, and one of the main reasons for this is that he once served in the military. He therefore cares passionately about veterans, a group that is regularly attacked by liberals like Barack Obama.
“I am a veteran, I’m proud of it, I was a sergeant in the U.S. Army infantry, National Guard, Vietnam era. We’re all brothers and sisters in that sense,” Selleck once said, according to USA Politics Today.
Selleck is also a proud defender of the Second Amendment, and he once famously argued with liberal idiot Rosie O’Donnell about gun control. Here’s their exchange, courtesy of The Political Insider:
Rosie: You also have the freedom of speech, but you’re not allowed to scream ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater because it threatens the safety of other people. Assault weapons threaten the safety of other people. There’s no reason in my opinion to have them. You wanna have a hunting rifle? Great. You wanna have a handgun?
Tom: Do you really think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution to guarantee hunting and target shooting? Do you really think that’s what the Founding Fathers meant?
Rosie: I think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution so that we can have muskets when the British people come over in 1800. I don’t think it’s in the Constitution to have assault weapons in the year 2000.
In the video above this story, you’ll see Selleck discuss the election results on the liberal talk show The View. One of the women he’s talking to is Whoopi Goldberg, who promised she’d leave the country if Donald Trump won. Unfortunately, she’s still here…
