Actor Samuel L. Jackson Shocks Fans with Political Rant

Samuel L. Jackson has had it with these ‘motherfucking billionaires not paying their motherfucking taxes.’

The Academy Honorary Award-winning and notoriously profanity-prone actor shared his grievance in a recent interview with Vulture after being asked about his political activism. “I pay an enormous amount of taxes, and it’s fine because I know I should. But why can’t we get billionaires to pay their fucking taxes?” the actor said.

“If those motherfuckers paid their taxes we’d solve a whole bunch of shit. And they would still be richer than every motherfucker walking around them.”

The “Avengers” actor is not alone in his frustrations. A Pew Research Center survey of 5,000 US adults found that about 60% of Americans feel wealthy people “don’t pay their fair share” in taxes. About 61% of people feel the same way about corporations.

It’s also arguable that a wealth tax on billionaires could “solve a whole bunch of shit.” A joint report from the Institute for Policy Studies, Patriotic Millionaires, Fight Inequality Alliance, and Oxfam found that instituting a wealth tax could subsidize several government programs, including a child tax credit extension and the US defense budget.

An analysis from the left-leaning Americans for Tax Fairness found that 26 of the wealthiest people in the country, including Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Elon Musk, paid an average federal income tax rate of 4.8% from 2013 to 2018 as they saw their fortunes grow. (This is partly because most of their wealth comes from assets, not paychecks.)

Jackson, 74, has never been one to shy away from politics. The actor told Vulture that his political activism began around the time he was a freshman in college in 1966, toward the tail end of the civil-rights movement.

He went on to say how, decades later, hearing the phrase “Make America Great Again” — Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan —makes his “blood boil” and that the “economic gap is crazy.”

“Being a certain age and looking at the world and identifying it for what it is and what it becomes, which is why as soon as I hear ‘Make America Great Again,’ I go, ‘When are we talking about again?

Are we talking about back when we had apartheid?’ I grew up in segregation in Tennessee. I went to school with Black kids cause we couldn’t go to school with white kids. I saw Klan marches and Klan rallies. So I know what America used to be,” he said.

Jackson has also been open about his feelings on the current state of the Republican Party. In 2019, three years into the Trump Administration, the actor bluntly told Esquire how he felt about the then-president.

“This motherfucker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy shit. And the people think that’s okay,” he said.

When asked by the magazine if he was worried about angering some fans, Jackson brushed off the concern: “I know how many motherfuckers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ Fuck I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. Fuck you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a fuck.”

    1. Jackson is stupid… doesn’t realize the segregation he grew up in was caused by DEMOCRATS! He prolly still votes for his old slave masters, the DEMOCRATS! But he stupidly blames Trump! If he wants to close the wealth gap, he can work for a much lower salary… and give his wealth away…

  1. Another Hollywood idiot yeah Biden is doing a great job uniting the Country .There was a Black pastor who said Trump did more for Blacks than Obama. Biden is he biggest racist has Jackson he heard some of the comments Biden has said

  2. “4/09/2019 – (Larry Elder) In 1940, 87% of Blacks lived below the federally defined level of poverty. Twenty years later in 1960, that number had been cut to 47%. A 40 point drop in 20 years.

    The greatest 20 year period of economic expansion for Blacks in history. This is before the welfare state, before race-based preferences.

    My point is, the real problem right now are left-wing policies that have made things worse. The welfare state has incentivized women to marry the government and allow men to abandon their financial and moral responsibility.

    And Obama said a kid without a father is five times more likely to be poor, nine times more likely to drop out of school, 20 times more likely to end up in jail. Let’s talk about what the welfare state has done to destabilize the Black family. During slavery, a Black kid was more likely to be born under a roof with his biological mother and biological father than today. That’s the problem, let’s deal with that.”

    The problem is that left-wing policies incentivize the father to abandon the family, all by design.
    Children need both a father and a mother.

    “3/29/16 – It’s well known how in 1965 Daniel Patrick Moynihan, assistant secretary of labor to Democrat President Johnson, warned that the black family was on the verge of a “complete breakdown” because of growing illegitimacy rates: in 1963 the out-of-wedlock birth rate for whites was 3 percent, and for blacks it was 23.6 percent.

    Moynihan was part of a generation of Democrats who cared about lifting blacks up into the ranks of equal opportunity with whites, back in the days before the Democrat Party became completely morally corrupt.

    If black lives truly matter, as Democrats shout at the top of their lungs, why don’t they promulgate policies that encourage blacks to get married before they have kids?”

    No one said America was greater under slavery.
    However, families were more intact in the 1940’s. And America was greater for it.

    1. *However, families were more intact in the 1960’s. And America was greater for it.

  3. Samuel L Jackson is a good actor, but politics is not his forte. On the subject of government and the Constitution, he’s a blithering idiot.

  4. Samuel L JAckson is a great actor. As a political commentator he’s an imbecile.

  5. Rich people don’t have enough money to pay for magic “free” stuff for everyone. Nor should they have to, even if they did.

    And taxes on the rich and on corporations tend to get passed on as increased costs on everything, which means regular folks ultimately pay.

    Parasites need to get a job or starve.
