In an appearance on Fox News on Monday, Rose McGowan attacked the Democratic Party, which she accused of being a "deep cult" whose supporters are in thrall to leaders who don't care about them.
McGowan told Fox News host Tammy Bruce that she used to vote for Democrats herself, but stopped.
"I am not here to make people feel bad about their political choices," McGowan said.
"But I am here to say that you might be in a cult, too, if you don't know the signs. And I do believe Democrats, most especially, are in a deep cult that they really don't know about and aren't really aware of."

McGowan went on to accuse Democrats of being hypocrites who defend the status quo while claiming to advance progressive change.
"They're against changing the world for the better, and they're for keeping a system in place that is for so few people and benefits so few, but they masquerade as the helpers," McGowan said.
"My persecution and awakening from being a Democrat was so much about what I do and what I say now, and so much about realizing how hard-core of a cult it is," she said.
McGowan was one of the first women who went public in accusing the film producer Harvey Weinstein of rape, the scandal that launched the #MeToo movement.
Weinstein was convicted of the rape of one woman, Jessica Mann, and the sexual assault of another, Miriam Haley, in February 2020. McGowan told The Guardian last year that her accusations did not lead to criminal charges because they fell outside the statute of limitations.
Weinstein has denied McGowan's allegations.
In the interview, McGowan criticized former Democratic President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for their friendship with Weinstein.
"I've gotten people, you know, on the left yelling at me like, 'You go up against Biden. You go up against the Clintons,'" McGowan said. "I'm like, yes, but all of these people had - the Clintons have had a direct hand in helping one of my perpetrators, who was one of the most powerful Democratic donors there was and also their entrée into the Hollywood world."
Weinstein was a friend of the Clintons and a donor to Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. In the wake of the allegations against Weinstein, Hillary Clinton praised the women who came forward to accuse him, and in an interview with Variety, said she was "shocked and appalled" by the allegations.
It's not the first time McGowan has spoken out against Democrats and those she says are their allies in the media.
She lashed out at Joe Biden on Twitter during his 2020 presidential campaign, accusing Democrats of failing to help those they claimed to be fighting for.
"If you are serving a master that is not serving you, you are in a cult," McGowan said on Monday.
