I woke up this morning and the first headline I saw on my phone was this:
“Actress Rose McGowan has apologized to Iran for Soleimani’s killing, says Americans are being ‘held hostage by terrorist regime.'”
Here’s the full text of her treasonous tweet about the death of Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani in a drone attack ordered by President Trump:
Isn’t that the very definition of giving aid and comfort to the enemy? Here’s what the U.S. Constitution says about treason:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.”
I’m pretty sure that McGowan is “adhering to [the] enemies” of the United States, and I know damn well I can find two witnesses to this testify — or make that 2 million!
Of course, McGowan felt a huge backlash after posting her original tweet. She tried to back away but just kept digging her hole deeper. First this:
And then this:
And finally this:
Ok, so I freaked out because we may have any impending war. Sometimes it’s okay to freak out on those in power. It’s our right. That is what so many Brave soldiers have fought for. That is democracy. I do not want any more American soldiers killed. That’s it.

McGowan obviously doesn’t know what she is talking about, but that is no excuse. If you are going to set yourself up as a thought leader in politics and war, you had better educate yourself before you open your mouth. It would take about one minute to find out that Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Quds force, was the true equivalent of Hitler’s enforcer Heinrich Himmler. He was a danger not just to Americans but to the whole world.
There was another war with another woman who gave comfort to the enemy. That was World War II and the woman who was broadcasting to support Japan and demoralize American GI’s was known as Tokyo Rose. I propose we start calling McGowan Tehran Rose and make her just as infamous as her other sister in treason, Hanoi Jane!
