Actress Rose McGowan’s emotions boiled over as she slammed Democrats and the media as a “cult” in a social media rant.

Though she did not directly address why she was calling out Democrats, McGowan’s Twitter feed has recently been filled with commentary on the sexual assault allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden. Herself a victim of convicted rapist and former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, McGowan has stood behind Biden’s accuser, Tara Reade. (** Language warning)

“I used to be a proud Democrat. I used to be a proud American. I would have died for this damned country & its ideals,” McGowan tweeted Wednesday along with a teary-eyed photo of herself.

“I was raised to be a proud Democrat,” she added, going on to recount wearing a “Vote John Kerry” pin to her younger brother’s Air Force Academy graduation.

“I thought democracy meant…I had a right to choose those who lined up with my value system,” she continued. “But what if there’s no one?”

“And I was always told it was the Democratic Party that were the good guys, that our papers were [The New York Times] and [The Washington Post] & we as a family loved listening to [All Things Considered] & we’d talk about how much we loved [Ira Glass’] voice,” she continued.

“But now I know too much,” the 46-year-old actress wrote.

“And I feel really quite a sense of loss tonight. I am not a cynical person, but America godd***. Republicans have always been painted as the bad guys, and I’ve always seen them more as a cult, but now I realize so are the democrats and the media. Macro and micro,” McGowan added.

“This is deeper than a cover-up,” she concluded. “And I’m sad because there’s death around all corners & shadows in the daytime. It hurts.”

Biden has not yet publicly addressed Reade’s sexual assault claim and is being called on to do so while his campaign has been refuting the accusation. McGowan slammed the silence by the media and others in the wake of the allegations and even called out liberal activist and her former “Charmed” co-star Alyssa Milano.

She slammed the “slanted & misogynistic writing” of journalists earlier this month.

“Where is #MeToo?” McGowan tweeted Sunday.

She followed with a shot at Biden on Monday, calling him out as a “creep.”

“Answer your taxpayers, answer Tara Reade,” she tweeted. “You are a creep. You know it. We know it. I know it. Tara definitely knows it.”

McGowan’s emotional post on Wednesday got plenty of attention, including from Brandon Straka, founder of the Walk Away campaign.

“Hey @rosemcgowan-I read ur post & identified w so many of your feelings bc I went through so many of the same feelings a few yrs ago,” he tweeted. “I walked away from the Dem Party-& it was a very painful decision at the time. Now I know it was exactly the right choice. Would love to talk 2 u.”
