Actor James Van Der Beek is making headlines after posting a video on TikTok criticizing the DNC for choosing to forego primary debates between President Joe Biden and the other presidential candidates.

On Memorial Day, Van Der Beek posted a video on TikTok expressing his frustration over the DNC’s decision to not hold a debate to decide the nominee for president.

“There’s no debate over an 80-year-old man who, if he lives, will be the oldest sitting president in the history of the country? And if he doesn’t live, has a vice president whose approval rating is worse than his?” asked Van Der Beek in disbelief.

Expressing his disapproval of Biden, the actor continued, saying, “This guy has obviously declining mental faculties, you’re putting him up in front of a podium with flashcards telling him who to call on and what the questions are going to be… And you’re telling us there’s no debate?”

“If we don’t have a debate, this is not a democracy by the people. This is democracy by them,” said Van Der Beek. “For who? Big banks? Big business? Big tech, big pharma, big government, big whatever…”

“I mean, what the hell? How is this democracy?” he asked.


Van Der Beek then put members of the DNC on blast for posting on Memorial Day thanking the troops, while they fail to do their jobs and preserve our democracy.

“Think… and do your f***ing job before you start posting about how grateful you are there are people out there who are willing to die to preserve democracy, ’cause you are not preserving democracy right now,” said Van Der Beek. “You are shoehorning your pick and forcing it on the rest of us. And don’t tell me that the other candidates aren’t serious, because one of them is polling at 7%, the other one is at 19%. That is a quarter of the vote who already thinks there’s, at the very least, some debate about who ought to be president.”

“It there’s no debate, there’s no democracy. No primary, no legitimate president,” he added.

“How do we have a democracy if we’re letting a small, little back room of people make all the important decisions for us?… It doesn’t work, because y’all have been wrong about a lot these last couple years in that back room.”

Van Der Beek, admitting he could be wrong about Biden’s capabilities, said, “I could be wrong about the guy being fit for the job, I could be wrong about the other people being right, being legitimate, being crazy. You know what would solve that? A debate. Have a debate.”


While Van Der Beek’s video was very reasonable, the liberal media have lost their minds over him having the audacity to share an opinion that isn’t perfectly in line with Hollywood’s far-left agenda. The woke left isn’t used to seeing one of their celebrities actually sharing their genuine opinions.

The actor is being called “unhinged” and news outlets such as Variety have labeled this video as a “bizarre anti-Biden rant.”

It just goes to show how intent the Democrats are on squashing individual thought and condemning anyone for expressing a view that doesn’t follow their narrative.
