Nick Searcy: Twitter’s One-Man Wrecking Ball

Nick SearcyFX

Nick Searcy, the veteran actor, is a busy, busy man when not on the set of Justified, where he plays Art Mullen. More often than not, you can find him on Twitter, and he is just brutal on there. He’ll happily spend all day on there putting those who do not agree with his viewpoints in their place.

He’s a big fan of Rush Limbaugh and he’s also claimed the late Andrew Breitbart as an influence, ‘allowing him to be himself.’

So now he sits at his pulpit on Twitter, where even his handle sounds exasperated (@YesNickSearcy), daring anyone to challenge his viewpoints on Obama. He’ll deride anyone who won’t use their real name on the site, instantly dismissing what they have to say. His reasoning there is that he puts his own name out in public, why shouldn’t the people that would debate him.

Here’s a sample:@YesNickSearcy: Ezra, your job is to protect Obama at all costs from hateful people like me. Sycophant @joanwalsh understands this. @ezraklein @instapundit

His language can often be salty and sometimes even not fit to print, but by God, he’ll say what’s on his mind, and he doesn’t care if he hurts your feelings while saying it.

To show that it’s not all bad, he’ll send a good portion of those Tweeters to his site Acting School With Nick Searcy, which has a compilation of YouTube videos that supposedly highlight the aspects of Hollywood. In them, he plays a hyper-exaggerated version of himself. He does things like pretend to use his adopted children as props for goodwill and also argues with a fan who is in a wheelchair about a parking space.

Even if you don’t agree with his viewpoints, it is pretty darn entertaining to watch his Tweet stream.
