SNL Alum Rob Schneider: America Is ‘Sliding Very Fast Towards Fascism’

Last year, Rob Schneider joined the growing pool of former Saturday Night Live cast members to “come out” as conservative. “I have been a lifelong Democrat and I have to switch over,” the comedian said at the time and it appears he’s evolved even further since then.

During an appearance on The Chris Stigall Show Friday, Schneider said his act has become more and more political and said he tries not to be “100% left or 100% right” but rather down the middle.

But at the same time, he warned, “Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of.”

Later in the interview, Schneider targeted President Barack Obama directly, saying, “There’s not one segment of business under the Obama administration that hasn’t been hurt.”
