“Happy Days” ain’t so happy anymore…
Stars of the popular 1970s sitcom “Happy Days” plan to host a virtual reunion this Sunday, but one former cast member doesn’t intend to show up.
Conservative Hollywood actor Scott Baio, who played the character Chachi, will be boycotting the reunion because of its stated purpose — to raise money for the Democrat Party of Wisconsin, which is apparently “presenting” the union.
Here’s what pops up if you hop over to the party’s official website:
The first signs of Baio’s displeasure with the reunion appeared Tuesday when he posted a snarky tweet mocking fellow actor John Stamos of “Full House” for having offered to fill Chachi’s shoes.
Shouldn’t he be taking care of Aunt Becky? 🤔 https://t.co/NGDy9fdkwN

During an appearance a day later on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” the actor went full bore on both Stamos and his former castmates.
“I think Stamos always wanted to be Chachi instead of playing second fiddle to a three-year-old,” he first said.
Stamos’ character on “Full House,” Jesse Katsopolis, had been nowhere close to one of the show’s stars. In fact, 3-year-old Michelle Tanner, played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, had pretty much eclipsed his character.
Baio then turned his attention to his castmates’ planned reunion.
“Here’s what I don’t get. To take a show like ‘Happy Days’ that represented traditional American values, good morals, a slice of Americana — and to use that show and those ideals to promote two people in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris that condone, encourage and foment rioting and looting is a little bizarre to me,” he said.
“I’m not on board obviously because I don’t believe in socialism and Marxism, and it’s good to know that Stamos is part of the Hollywood elite, Marxist crowd.”
That was brutal.
Watch the full interview below, or fast-forward to the 4:40 mark:
Earlier in the interview, he hinted at the reasons for why he clearly feels so much anger toward his former castmates.
Asked by host Maria Bartiromo to comment on the left-wing hatred that Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley has faced for endorsing President Donald Trump, Baio grew visibility agitated as he spoke of the left’s increasingly fascistic tendencies.
“I spoke at the [Republican] convention in 2016 for President Trump, and I completely understand and empathize with what Kirstie is going through,” he said.
“I’ve been whacked, pilloried for the past four years by the people who are supposed to be all-inclusive and understanding and loving — and they’re all basically fascists, and you’re not allowed to think outside of what they think, and I find it disgusting.”
Asked to then explain his own support for the president, Baio spoke of his unrelenting love for America and its core values.
“I believe in the president because I believe in America. I believe in all things America. I believe in hard work and individualism. I believe in God, and I believe in my country. I believe in the military. I believe in what this country was founded on, and I could go on for 10 minutes. I don’t hate this country like most liberals do,” he said.
You could feel the anger radiating off of him — and arguably justifiably so given the left’s endless attacks on America, its values (free speech, religious freedom gun rights, etc.), its founding and its institutions.
“I don’t think it was founded in a bad way. I love it. It’s given so many opportunities to so many people, and there’s still opportunities out there for anybody, no matter what you look like, no matter what your lifestyle is,” he continued.
“And I don’t understand the running down of this country, so for me, President Trump loves his country, he wants it to be the best country in the world — it’s America first!”
America first indeed.
Unfortunately, these patriotic beliefs — as well as Baio’s refusal to attend what is essentially nothing more than a Democrat fundraiser — has made him a target of, you guessed it, unrepentant left-wing hatred and rage, with known racists like Don Winslow leading the charge.
Case in point (*Language warning):
NO ONE GIVES A SHIT IF YOU’RE ON BOARD.
LITERALLY NO ONE.

Notice how many likes and retweets the nasty tweet received.
This despite Winslow, an author whose work is frequently touted by the media, being a full-fledged racist who last week called black rapper Kanye West, black rapper Ice Cube and black congressman Sen. Tim Scott “fake ass sell outs.”
Donald Trump is a F racist.
And a vote for Trump is a vote for racism. https://t.co/a1UAafx1uP

Why did he call them that? Because they refuse to bow to the status quo, and like “Chachi” point out to Bartiromo, in the world of left-wing zealots like Winslow, “you’re not allowed to think outside of what they think.”
