Samuel L. Jackson Tells America to 'Wake the F*@$&* Up' Now (VIDEO)

Samuel L. JacksonSamuel L. Jackson is one kick ass dude, and when he wants something, he gets it. This time, what he wants is to see President Barack Obama get re-elected. He wants America to "wake the f*ck up" and see Mitt Romney as a lying multi-millionaire who hates the poor that he is. Now he even has a video to prove it.

The online ad features Jackson and was written by the Go the F*ck to Sleep author Adam Mansbach. A few months ago, Jackson's reading of Mansbach's "children's book for adults" went viral, and the way this one is going, it probably will, too.

Simply put: it's brilliant. Jackson's message, however crass, is that there is a massive difference between Obama and Mitt Romney and those who are apathetic need to wake (THE F$!K) UP already! He is right.



This is really the video everyone needs to see. I have been amazed recently by the number of people I see in my Facebook feed who seem to take pride in apathy, as though that were something to commend as opposed to condemn.

Sorry, but the political future of our country hangs in the balance right now. I think that is mildly important. As the great playwright Bertolt Brecht once said:

The worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn’t hear, doesn’t speak, nor participates in the political events. He doesn’t know the cost of life, the price of the bean, of the fish, of the flour, of the rent, of the shoes and of the medicine, all depends on political decisions. The political illiterate is so stupid that he is proud and swells his chest saying that he hates politics. The imbecile doesn’t know that, from his political ignorance is born the prostitute, the abandoned child, and the worst thieves of all, the bad politician, corrupted and flunky of the national and multinational companies.

But hey, if Brecht is too high brow, take it from Samuel L. Jackson: Wake the Eff UP, people! November 7 will be too late.

Do you care about this election?
