Actor Adam Drive came under assault by an online mob of unhinged leftists who demanded he be ‘canceled’ after it was revealed that he served in US military after the terror attacks of 9/11. As The Daily Wire reports:
Twitter users tried desperately to “cancel” Star Wars star Adam Driver this week after noticing a 2019 New Yorker interview in which Driver said he joined the military after 9/11 to serve in the Afghanistan War.
Driver was 18 at the time of the attacks and quickly enlisted in the Marines, looking to serve his country — a move The New Yorker seemed disdainful of, accusing Driver of looking for an outlet for “retribution.”
“After 9/11, he found himself filled with a desire for retribution, although he wasn’t sure against what or whom,” the New Yorker wrote, filling in Driver’s motivation for him and, it seems, implying he was driven by Islamophobia. “‘It wasn’t against Muslims,’ [Driver] said. ‘It was: We were attacked. I want to fight for my country against whoever that is.’”
Driver says he joined the Marines because the service was notoriously difficult and he was looking for a challenge. He trained as an artillery specialist and served for two years before sustaining a career-ending injury. He went on to attend college and graduate from Julliard, and he eventually made his way to Hollywood, where he earned a memorable part in HBO’s “Girls,” before being cast as Sith Lord Kylo Ren in Star Wars, episodes 7, 8, and 9.
Driver has since gone on to use his fame to advocate for pro-veteran causes, something for which leftists are now seeking to destroy his career.
