Producer and singer Robert Davi directed a no-nonsense message to fellow actor Kevin Bacon and other Hollywood elites over the “pomposity” of their support of the radical left.

Davi declared that he “will not be quiet” in response to recent comments from Bacon about the racial divide in the nation following the death of George Floyd, and his admiration for the younger generation protesting for social justice.

“You see, Kevin, many were not born with the white privilege you grew up with. And I for one wish to speak out,” Davi wrote in an op-ed published by Breitbart Tuesday, addressing Bacon’s call for “old white guys” to just “shut up and listen.”

The 61-year-old actor checked off the “woke” box during a virtual appearance on “The Tonight Show,” as he discussed his alleged “white privilege” in the wake of the events of the last few weeks.

“It’s incredible to experience this and to go through this historically, not just the COVID-19, but clearly seeing the protests and what’s going on,” Bacon told host Jimmy Fallon. “For an old guy like me, I was born in 1958, and to witness the passion of the young people across the world for social justice – it leaves me speechless, which is probably a good idea because I think it’s a good time for old white guys like me to just shut up and listen.”

Davi took exception to Bacon’s words, schooling him on how he and other old white guys “clawed and struggled for where we are in life.”

“If you mean Kevin, white guys that were given a huge leg up in life by having a father who was a major figure in Architecture — the great Edmund Bacon — or a mother who was a liberal activist, then I understand,” Davi wrote, noting that many others, like himself, “grew up with a parent working three or four jobs to give us a chance at a better life.”

“Your call to muzzle old white guys does a huge disservice to our nation during a time of perilous but exciting change,” Davi continued. “The pomposity I see among so many of the privileged Hollywood community, where many make in a week what takes others five lifetimes, is nauseating. It seems almost a desperate attempt to make sure they are perceived as part of this movement that is using the emotions of our youth to topple the nation.”

The conservative Trump-supporting actor questioned whether the younger generation actually knows the truth and suggested “they are being used” and that they “still need guidance.”

“I see too many people being sucked into a leftist vortex that has been orchestrated by powerful forces that wish harm to the country that has given us so much,” he wrote, adding the many ways he will continue to “speak out” instead of staying silent or caving in to the leftist mobs.

“I will speak out about how America’s youth has been indoctrinated by a corrupt culture and education system that has neglected to teach the true greatness of America but instead peddles Marxist cultural propaganda,” he declared.

Davi also vowed to continue speaking out for “better ways law enforcement can engage with people,” and for the lack of assimilation by immigrants in the U.S., citing Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota who, as a Somali refugee to America, “has spit on this nation while being a member of Congress, who swore to protect and defend the nation she adopts as her own.”

Davi went on to stand against the left’s attack on people of faith, those “denigrating our flag and not standing for our national anthem,” against abortion, environmental issues and the mainstream media’s “fueling the flames of racism,” promising that he will not be quiet but call attention to the Democratic Party “that has ruined every city they are in power in.”

“This destruction has occurred while all you bleeding hearts in Hollywood continue to bump fists over how great the party is. I will speak out against that hypocrisy, Kevin,” Davi wrote, adding that he will “speak out against rioting and looting. I will speak out against demonizing all police because of what some may do!”

Earlier this month, Davi spoke with Fox Business host Neil Cavuto about the protests in the wake of Floyd’s death, slamming Hollywood actors who took up the cause of posting bail for those arrested in demonstrations, even if they were suspected of looting and rioting.

“It’s unAmerican for Kevin Bacon to demand ‘old white guys’ or any American to keep their mouths shut,” David declared in his op-ed. “Political correctness has stapled our mouths shut for far too long. I will speak out against all the agitprop that is used to separate us as human beings.”

He concluded the piece, telling Bacon, “since you made this about race,” by adding a video of a young boy who had died from dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, a rare skin disorder which caused skin to peel away from the body.

“I hear people are fighting over the color of their skin,” Marky Jaquez, from Wichita, Kansas, said in the clip.

“I just wish I had skin,” he added. “Think about it.”
