Actor Nick Searcy, star of FX’s “Justified,” has a very lively Twitter account that is sure to attract more conservative followers after a recent email exchange with the left-leaning site Raw Story.
Already over 20 thousand followers strong, the actor pulls few punches on Twitter, letting the expletives fly. Atheists seem to catch the worst of his ire and he can boast that he has been blocked by far-left wingnut Roseann Barr.
Having taken notice of Searcy’s comments on his “wild Twitter feed,” described as talking “like your typical unhinged Internet troll,” Raw Story sent the actor an email requesting an interview.
Searcy’s response is priceless:
RAW: Hey, Nick. I just noticed what a no-holds-barred Twitter feed you have. What a riot. I’d love to do a short piece about you. Got time for a chat?
SEARCY: Frankly, I don’t think I trust your website, after looking at it.
RAW: I’m going to put up some of your tweets and let them speak for themselves. I was just curious about what it’s like to be an outspoken conservative in Hollywood. It would be great to have your actual response to that.
SEARCY: Are you going to headline it “Teabagger” or “Ultra-con” or “Bigot”?
RAW: How would you describe yourself in your own words?
SEARCY: Not playing. Go back to your hit pieces on Christianity and decent Americans who disagree with you.
Raw Story then lists a number of tweets from Searcy that, while colorful in language, proves this is a man who doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
