“He believes in social equality. So this fallacy that he’s an evil racist, bigot is f–king bullshit.”
Samaire Armstrong is voting for Donald Trump in November — and she wants you to know why.
“The O.C.” alum posted an impassioned video on Instagram on Thursday, in which she criticized the “Left mob” for attacking free speech, while praising the President for helping Black people, minority groups and other countries of the world.
“I’m voting #Trump2020, and this is why,” she captioned the vid. “This is MY opinion. I am sharing it with you at the cost of everything, because it is my right. It is your right to refute it.”
In the seven minute video, she insisted she wasn’t a traditional conservative, or even a Republican. “I’m actually an independent,” she said. “I do look at both sides of the party system and assess what’s going on.”
She labeled career politicians like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris “out of their minds,” claiming they have not done anything to solve the systemic racism their followers blame on newcomer Trump.
She accused the Left of fawning over Barack Obama, who she claimed did actually did nothing for the country.

This is MY opinion. I am sharing it with you at the cost of everything, because it is my right. It is your right to refute it. * What I hope comes from this, is that we are able to have an open dialogue. * There are many thoughts and insight you may want to interject and provide. I encourage you to have factual data to support what your point is. * There are so many in our great country who have been bullied into silence at the doing of a far left mob. * Let’s shift back to reality and facts. Let’s stop placating to the emotionally undeveloped, who have an inability to process the meaning of personal responsibility, as if they are the cultural guide of which we should follow. * I encourage us all to stay grounded in these discussions. I am well aware how emotional and important what we are discussing is. * You can see in my video how passionate I am. I ask you to consider, why I would be coming out saying these things. How is it that I feel so confident about putting my “divisive” perspective in public. I am willing to gamble with what comes of my opinion, because I have conviction of its validity. * If nothing else, I hope this encourages you to speak YOUR opinion, no matter how unpopular it may be. * Freedom of speech must be restored. Logic must be restored. Critical thinking must be restored. * I have deep love for everyone of my fellow humans. Every race, color, creed, gender, political back ground, religious back ground, financial background, must have their OWN voice and opinion, and it MUST be allowed be to spoken.
“‘Oh, Obama, our first Black President, this is so awesome’… ” she mocked. “What did he do? What was his success other than being a Black President? Did Chicago get any better?”
To Democratic voters she said: “You’re part of the problem because you’ve been duped into believing that the Democratic Party are for the people, and this idea — that’s been massly pushed by the media — that Republicans are naturally racist people is insulting, frightening, and dangerous.”
She said the truth was Republicans just didn’t want “big Government” in their business — and you shouldn’t either.
She scoffed at the idea Governments should “take care of everybody”, because they are not structured to do that. The US cannot be compared to Scandinavian countries that manage it, she added, because they are smaller.
“Taxing the rich gets in the way of providing jobs for people,” she insisted.
She slammed the erosion of freedom of speech or thought, adding that anyone who supports Trump is branded a “brainwashed idiot.”
The “Dirty Sexy Money” star also questioned what she called the overreaction to Covid, claiming 8,000 people generally die in the US every week anyway.
“Saying ‘I’m a believer in science, I’m a science believer’… that doesn’t mean you’re looking into the science; it proves you’re parroting a narrative that’s been painted that people on the right don’t believe in science.”
“I’m not saying climate change isn’t happening — absolutely, it happens all the time. We were once in an Ice Age, we are now not,” she said. “It’s seasonal, every year, every century.”
She went on to argue that Donald Trump — whom she also voted for in the last election — “isn’t even technically a Republican himself.”
“He’s always socially at heart been a Democrat — a liberal, I should say. Because he believes in social equality. So this fallacy that he’s an evil racist, bigot is f–king bullshit.”
She concluded: “We are riddled with fear right now over speaking; and in America, that’s our right. We have the right to speak out on this.”
In her stories afterwards, she shared dozens of examples of people from around the world saying they agreed with her; even fellow actor Josh Brolin liked her post.
In posts made earlier this week, the 39-year-old actress also branded the Black Lives Matter movement a “billion dollar domestic terrorist organization”, and admitted she regretted speaking on its behalf in the past.
“It’s ok to speak out against the fascist, far left mob,” she wrote. “Call a spade, a spade.”

Fixed it. Black lives, they matter!! However, BLM is a billion dollar domestic terrorist organization. It’s ok to speak out against the fascist, far left mob. Call a spade, a spade. No more pandering to their hurt feelings and “safes spaces.” We, you and me, and every American of ALL RACE, CULTURE, COLOR, BACK GROUND, and HERITAGE, have the ability to stand up for what is right. There is a war on democracy. There is no ignoring the chaos and violence on our streets. This is unacceptable, nor is it justice. I support our hero’s in blue. ??? #refundthepolice I support identifying the breakdown of injustice in our communities, and building up, rather then burning down. As our great President said “there are very fine people on both sides.” Handing the administration over to pandering Joe Biden; the walking corpse, who believes that the Black community is of monolithic thought, is a doomsday in the fight for justice that we seek. An elimination and restructuring of systemic racism can not be trusted to be accomplished at the same hands that built it. #votered #trump2020 #supportthebluevotered
