OK, we didn’t know the Carney Awards were last night, and we didn’t know there was such as thing as the Carney Awards. But veteran character actor James Cromwell (“Babe,” “The Green Mile,” and Oliver Stone’s “W,” in which he played George H.W. Bush) won one, and he used the occasion to warn that there will be “blood in the streets” if the Democrats lose the midterms.

The fun started when he stopped to talk with Variety on the red carpet on the way in, with Cromwell warning, “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”

The actor continued his political screed from the podium, where he spoke about the importance of the midterm elections: if Democrats prevail, “We will cut through the corruption, [and] we won’t have to do what comes next, which is either a non-violent revolution or a violent one, because this has got to end.”

Will CNN hall monitor Oliver Darcy chastise Variety’s reporter for not pushing back on the insanity and giving his readership the facts? We’ll assume liberal journalists will be spared in the violent revolution that’s going to follow the midterms when the Republicans pick up seats in the Senate.

Variety’s followers on Twitter all seem to agree that there already is blood in the streets, citing Pittsburgh and Parkland. So it’s not extreme, violent rhetoric at all.

Yeah, it’s a shame the Left hasn’t had a chance to speak out.

Oh, by the way, here’s the obligatory photo of Cromwell getting chummy with Harvey Weinstein:
