Actor Kevin Bacon says it’s time for “old white guys” like himself to stop talking politics and listen to the left-wing “social justice” movement.
Bacon is a typical liberal activist and celebrity. Earlier this week, he appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to – ironically — talk about how he should just “shut up and listen,” Breitbart reports.
But when fellow actor Robert Davi (“License to Kill,” “Die Hard”) heard Bacon’s comments, he could not remain silent.
“It’s unAmerican for Kevin Bacon to demand ‘old white guys’ or any American to keep their mouths shut,” Davi wrote at Breitbart on Tuesday.
He said he must speak out for his own six children – and the hundreds of thousands of unborn babies who are at risk of being aborted every year in the U.S.
The conservative actor said he has watched society slowly chip away at the values that made America great, including the principle that every human being deserves a right to life. He condemned the killing of George Floyd, the growing push for censorship, the move to “cancel” history and the “Marxist cultural propaganda” that is being pushed on children through the education system.
I will speak out against the killing of every George Floyd. I will speak out against the canceling of culture and American history, which, if taken to its full extreme, would have more far-reaching consequences than you ever imagined. I will speak out, Kevin, against innocent unborn babies being aborted. This atrocity goes against nature, does it not Kevin? I mean, how can the Left condone abortion as a form of birth control? If black lives matter, do the leaders of that organization not realize that Margret Sanger is the woman who advocated abortion so as to control the black American birthrate?
Since 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade, approximately 20 million unborn black babies have been aborted.
Though abortions hurt families of every race and culture, statistics indicate that abortions disproportionately hurt the African American community. Census data indicates that African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, but they have nearly 40 percent of all abortions. And New York City health statistics indicate that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born each year.

Many believe the abortion industry targets minorities for abortions as well. Research by Protecting Black Life found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of minority neighborhoods.
Abortion has destroyed more human lives than anything else in America, but the Black Lives Matter organization supports abortion on demand – as do many celebrities.
Davi criticized privileged Hollywood elites for trying to appeal to the loud pro-abortion, pro-Marxist movement, rather than using their voices to defend the most vulnerable.
“The pomposity I see among so many of the privileged Hollywood community, where many make in a week what takes others five lifetimes, is nauseating,” he continued. “It seems almost a desperate attempt to make sure they are perceived as part of this movement that is using the emotions of our youth to topple the nation.”
At least some celebrities are still willing to stand up to the crowd and speak the truth that every human being, born and unborn, is valuable and deserves a right to life.
