Left-wing actor John Cusack injected himself into the violent anti-cop riots across Americaa that purportedly are in response to the death of George Floyd — taking a stance against police, of course.

The actor shared a tweet of what was mostly audio of what he claimed was Chicago police attacking him with batons.

“Cops didn’t like me filming the burning car so they came at me with batons. Hitting my bike. Ahhm here[s] the audio,” Cusak tweeted.

Of course, all we have is Cusack’s version of events, as the video is unclear about what is taking place.

You can hear people yelling, “Move! Get out of here! Now!”

There’s no real perspective of what Cusack may have been doing prior to this moment, or what was taking place around him at the time. Or even who was yelling.

Viewers must take Cusack’s word on the matter.

The socialist actor shared a second video that betrayed his attitude somewhat — the first video was just before midnight, the second was two hours later at 1:44 a.m.

Cusak tweeted: “These were some of the peace officers – who gently tuned up my bike with their batons.”

Chicago was hit with violent riots Saturday night. Looting and burning occurred with abandon and criminal elements physically attacked police. Cusack live-tweeted some of the night’s events.

There was one incident caught on video where thugs tried to drag a female officer who had fallen on the ground, off into the crowd — who knows what may have happened to the woman had they been successful.

This being the same city were Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a black woman, sent President Trump a “coded” message on Friday: “It starts with ‘F’ and ends with ‘you.’”

To get a real feel for Cusack’s disposition, a tweet he sent the night before is telling.

“I hope this keeps up till trump flys away in a f*cking helicopter- it’s time -people should NOT swallow another moment of fascism Fight till he’s gone,” he tweeted.

(Spelling, punctuation and grammar are clearly not his strong suit.)

Calling for violent left-wing revolution in the streets of America being acceptable speech on Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s social media platform.

Speech that is not censored, or tagged with “public service” disclaimers, as seen with the President of the United States.

In another tweet, Cusack lent his voice to hoping the rioting continues, tweeting “this may well be the beginning of end of trump loathsome era – thank god.”

But then, calling for violent revolution is nothing new for the actor with an estimated $50 million net worth, thanks in part to average Americans watching his movies.

In 2018, Cusack called for an overthrow of President Trump’s presidency  in support of illegal immigration.

Cusack tweeted: “Don’t miss the historic moment -rage in this moment is healthy /righteous anger – out of compassion love solidarity for brothers &sisters -a kind of purified love- We can only fight for things we love- justice is what Love looks like in public resist impeach We own the streets.”

But then, that paled in comparison to a 2017 tweet he would later delete:

The disgruntled actor would also express solidarity with Trump-hating actor Robert DeNiro in the wee hours of the morning:
