The Mighty* Rob Schneider told Philadelphia talk radio’s Chris Stigall Friday that America is “sliding very fast towards fascism” and that stand-up comics who aren’t liberal “can get murdered.” Not literally, I’m assuming, but career-wise and up on the stage. Schneider also isn’t impressed with Obama’s handling of the economy:
“There’s not one segment of business under the Obama administration that hasn’t been hurt…he attacks for-profit schools, which is totally an elitist thing from a guy that went to Harvard. I think for free, by the way,” Schneider said.
Schneider added, “We are sliding towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of.”
As far as the comedy world, Schneider says that “[I]f you do criticize or tend to be not directly along a liberal stand, you can get murdered.”
*Schneider earned the rare title of “Mighty” for his masterpiece “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo.”
