Harrison Ford Blasts America

77-year-old Ford made these comments while promoting The Call Of The Wild in Mexico City. In the interview, Ford attacks the way President Donald Trump has run this country while also praising teenage climate alarmist Greta Thunberg.

“Our position in the world is tenuous because of our lack of moral leadership, basically,” Ford said, according to Breitbart News.

Ford went on to talk Thunberg, who has been running around saying that the world will end in a decade if we don’t submit to her radical environmental demands.

Harrison Ford Praises Greta Thunberg

“I certainly applaud Greta… her activism, her role in representing the interests of young people, and I admire her courage, her fortitude, and also admire her capacity to express herself,” he said. “Science is being ridiculed by people in ideological campgrounds. They are refusing the wisdom, the discipline of science, in favor of a political point of view. And that has to stop. And I believe young people throughout the world know that it has to stop and are capable and willing to make the sacrifices to make that happen. ”

“I applaud Greta’s part in the leadership of young people and I consider the threat to the natural world as the single biggest threat to humanity,” he continued.

Ford has millions of fans in America who love and adore his films, and it was us who made him the international superstar that he is today. So it’s unfortunate to see that he is so quick to bash our country as soon as he leaves to promote a movie.

How can Ford speak with such disdain for America? The country that opened the doors for his eventual superstardom. Well, we humbly challenge him to find another country on earth that could offer him the freedom and opportunities that America does.

Harrison Ford’s new movie The Call of the Wild hits theaters February 21st. We’ll find out soon enough if Ford turning his film promotion circuit into a soapbox for Greta Thunberg backfires.
