The movie star told host Tammy Bruce that she used to vote Democratic but stopped after becoming aware of the party's intentions. "My persecution and awakening from being a Democrat was so much about what I do and what I say now and so much about realizing how hardcore of a cult it is," she said.

While noting that she was not trying to shame people for their political decisions, she felt Democratic supporters may not realize the true nature of the party.

"I am not here to make people feel bad about their political choices," she insisted. "But I am here to say that you might be in a cult too if you don't know the signs. And I do believe Democrats, most especially, are in a deep cult that they really don't know about and aren't really aware of."

McGowan then accused Democratic leaders of being hypocrites, claiming they promise to advance progressive change in the world but really just defend the status quo.

"They're against changing the world for the better and they're for keeping a system in place that is for so few people and benefits so few but they masquerade as the helpers," she insisted. "If you are serving a master that is not serving you, you are in a cult."

Continuing on with her tirade, McGowan slammed former Democratic president Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for their longstanding friendship with convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.

During her Fox News appearance, McGowan explained that she has people "on the left" shaming her for going up against the Clintons. The Encino Man star said she fights against those political leaders because they "have had a direct hand in helping one of my perpetrators who was one of the most powerful Democratic donors there was, and also their entree into the Hollywood world."

McGowan was the first woman who went public in accusing the shamed producer of rape, which launched the 2017 #MeToo movement

More than 80 women have come forward since the 47-year-old accused him of sexual abuse. Weinstein was found guilty in February 2020; however, McGowan's allegations didn't lead to criminal charges, as they fell outside the statute of limitations, she told The Guardian last year.

The Pulp Fiction producer was close to the Clintons and was a donor in Hillary's 2016 presidential campaign. In light of the slew of accusations against Weinstein, Hillary said she was "shocked and appalled" to hear of the allegations.
