‘Meathead’ Rob Reiner invokes Civil War, blames Schumer shutdown on GOP, racism

On Sunday, Hollywood leftist Rob Reiner invoked the Civil War and falsely blamed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s shutdown on Republicans and — of course — racism.

“Make no mistake, this shutdown boils down to one thing: RACISM. GOP frightened to death of the browning of America. They will lose this last big battle of the Civil War. Diversity is our strength,” he tweeted.

Apparently, Reiner is unaware the Civil War ended over 150 years ago.  Either that, or he’s advocating for another armed conflict between Americans.

As we reported, Senate Democrats forced a partial shutdown of the government when they refused to pass a spending bill that contained nothing they opposed.  In short, they placed some 800,000 illegal immigrants over millions of Americans, including those serving in the military in harm’s way.

Schumer — who said a shutdown over immigration would cause “chaos” in 2013 — and his fellow Democrats have tried to blame it on Republicans.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., even blamed it on the genetic material of her GOP colleagues.

But facts are facts.  And the fact is the current shutdown can be placed squarely at the feet of Schumer and his fellow Democrats — hence the term, “Schumer shutdown.”

One person told Reiner:


One person referenced Reiner’s role in the sitcom, “All in the Family,” telling him that he’s still a “meathead.”

But false charges of racism is all the left has…

However, that charge seems to be a double-edged sword, so to speak:



Indeed.  Isn’t it just amazing that rich liberals like Reiner love to lecture the rest of us?

Others reminded Reiner and his liberal supporters that strength comes from more than just “diversity,” which oddly, never includes diversity of thought.

Another wondered:


“Truth is not mean, it’s just truth.”  So true.
