Weighing in on the recent and disastrous withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan, actor Tim Russ, perhaps best known for portraying Lieutenant Commander Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager, has equated the faith of Americans “who believe in religion” to the violent religious fanaticism of the Taliban.
Taking to his personal Twitter account on August 16th, just a few days after the Taliban took over the Afghanistan capital of Kabul in the near-immediate absence of US forces, Russ asserted, “The Taliban are as fanatical about their beliefs and culture as the millions of people right here in the U.S. who believe in religion, conspiracy theories, and alternate reality.”
While it appears that Russ is deriding a hypothetical individual who believes in just one of those tenets, it’s also likely that he’s lashing out specifically against those who not only support President Donald Trump, but also position themselves as pro-life in regards to the debate surrounding abortion.
That such a specific group is the target of Russ’ condemnation is evidenced by the actor’s own social media history, in which he can be seen regularly taking swings at the ‘Christian right’.
