A Hollywood actor raised with what he described as blue-collar values that included working hard for one’s own money has remained largely quiet about his conservative principles — until the day he heard Rep. Nancy Pelosi speak of the need to pass “Obamacare.”

“That day when Nancy Pelosi said, ‘Let’s pass this bill and then we’ll find out what’s in it,’ I actually choked on [my coffee],” actor Ken Wahl said on The Blaze. “But what was even more astonishing after that was that there was no push-back in the media about that. I was Godsmacked.”

He said he had never involved himself in politics, but then “something just clicked and I thought, something’s going terribly wrong in America now if this is what it comes to. That moment flipped the switch for me,” The Blaze reported.

Mr. Wahl since has become vocal about his denouncement of the Obama administration and about the Kermit Gosnell abortion trial. He’s even mulling a run at public office, The Blaze said. One of his comments, in The Blaze: “I’m not going to call [President Obama] a communist or a socialist. There’s so much hypocritical stuff going on. I just don’t like this guy and what he represents.”

The actor gained fame with numerous Hollywood roles and productions in the 1980s and 1990s.
