Tim Robbins, star of "The Shawshank Redemption," slammed Democrats and the mainstream media for "thuggish censorship."

Actor Tim Robbins recently delivered a cutting takedown of the Democrats and the media.

Robbins applauded the reporting of independent journalists Matt Taibbi, Michael Shellenberger, and Bari Weiss. The Hollywood actor thanked the journalists for "exposing a massive censorship operation by the U.S. government to control content on social media and eliminate any dissenting voices."

Robbins said the mainstream media "ignored" censorship in the United States and "personal freedoms" of Americans were being diminished.

Robbins specifically named and blasted three Democrats: Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), and Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-V.I.) for threatening Taibbi with prosecution and imprisonment.

"What an embarrassing, shameful time for the Democrats and the ‘free’ press," Robbins wrote on Twitter. "You are losing any shred of credibility you had, you f***ing fools."

Robbins also demanded that Julian Assange be released from prison.

Robbins told Variety this week, "I've always been curious about what goes on in leaders’ heads when they have to do something that is morally compromising for what they consider the greater good. I always look at that as a terrible no-win situation. And I often wonder if those measures that they take, that are immoral, are necessary.”

The celebrity added, "I'm talking about politicians that compromise themselves and make decisions that they believe are for the good of people, but those decisions involve censorship or lying or deception of some kind that leads to people getting hurt. And I wanted to play that guy, I want to deal with that moral complexity in trying to understand where the human being is. I think we've been through three and a half years of extraordinary and questionable choices made by people that are supposed to be leading their countries."

Robbins was previously critical of the draconian pandemic response by government officials.

Robbins believes that Americans became "tribal, angry, vengeful people" as a result of the pandemic.
