Actor Alec Baldwin, who has been embroiled in a scandal involving his discharging a firearm on the set of a film that killed a cinematographer, lost his ever-loving mind on an anti-Israel protester participating in a march in New York City before local law enforcement officers got involved and ushered him out of the way. This guy just cannot keep himself out of trouble. Anger management might be a good investment as a potential Christmas gift.
A video came to light on Monday, published on social media platform X, showing the 65-year-old actor in the middle of a protest and having a confrontation with anti-Israel activists.
Here’s more from the Daily Wire:
The protestor asked the former “Saturday Night Live” star, “You work in Hollywood … so do you condemn Israel” for defending itself following the October 7 Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel that left 1,200 people dead.
“You’ve already got your mind made up,” Baldwin replied.
“I’m in Hollywood’s pocket, is that what you say?” he added, before slamming the guy, “You ask stupid questions.”
But the protestor continued to repeatedly ask, “Is that your answer?”
It’s nice to see that not everyone backs down in fear of the mindless mob.
Tonight, when Anti-Israel protestors in New York City attacked him with questions, Alec Baldwin refused to condemn Israel.

“Ask me a smart question!” Baldwin returned fire , before cops attempted to get him out of the area. It was about that time the protester started screaming at him, asking him if he condemned Israel, which really set the actor off, causing him to get in the face of the protester and yelled, “Why don’t you shut the f*** up?”
Baldwin responded to a different activist later, saying, “I want peace for Gaza.”
Another clip showed the actor trying to walk away from the protest as others attending the event cussed at him, prompting him to reply to the crowd with a sarcastic, “You’re really helping your cause.”
Images from the clip also show the protestors carrying signs that read, “From Gaza to Jenin,” “Revolution until Victory,” and “Queers for a Liberated Palestine.” The demonstration was put together by a Palestinian-led community group, Within Our Lifetime, TMZ reported. Reading through the comments, people showed support for the actor who often draws the ire of many on social media over his past political comments.
“Do we still hate Alec Baldwin?” one person went on to ask. “He showed more balls here than most people.”
Another individual commented, “I never had Hollywood actor [Alec Baldwin] standing up to antisemitic and anti-#Israel protesters on my 2023 bingo card but here you go. Good for him!”
“It’s nice to see that not everyone backs down in fear of the mindless mob. Tonight, when Anti-Israel protestors in New York City attacked him with questions, Alec Baldwin refused to condemn Israel…” someone else stated.
To answer the question about whether we still hate Alec Baldwin or not, the answer is, “it’s complicated.” We don’t like him, as he’s a raging liberal who seems to hate everything that is great about this country. He helped rejuvenate his career by doing an awful impression of former President Donald Trump. So no, I don’t like him.
However, he is right to take a stand against these anti-Semitic nuts.
I guess a broken clock is right twice a day.
