Fran Drescher condemns capitalism, condones revolution
“One solution: revolution,” goes a popular leftist chant. And a perhaps unlikely figure agrees.
Actor Fran Drescher gets how politics works.
“The heart of the problem, all problems w the world at its core is power & greed fueled by Capitalism,” she tweeted on March 15.
“As long as capitalist BIG Biz RULEs they’re middle management I fear,” she continued, referring to politicians.
Drescher understands that capitalism is a dictatorship — the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie. This is why she refuses to support any candidate from a bourgeois party.
The actor also openly voiced support for revolution.
I emailed Drescher’s agent, requesting an interview.
“She recently criticized capitalism on Twitter, and I think many people would love to read about her views on politics,” I wrote to her talent management company.
“That would certainly be interesting,” her agent replied.
“However she’s not doing interviews at this time,” she added.
Darn — that would have made for an interesting conversation.
