Throughout the entirety of the Trump administration, there has been a near constant stream of threats against the President, his administration, republicans in general, and even his family…but this latest aggression is simply disturbing.
The entitlement of Hollywood culture has long been a stepping stone between civility and chaos, with celebrities deciding that their own inflated self worth will somehow keep them from being subjected to the same laws as the rest of the nation. Certainly, the ultra wealthy and incredibly famous do receive special treatment in the court of public opinion, and that, unfortunately, often translates into the actual judicial system as well.
So when people such as Kathy Griffin subconsciously instruct the liberal masses to bring violence to Washington D.C., they do. We’ve already learned this lesson about the radical left, yet the liberal narrative hasn’t adjusted to the newfound reality that the democratic voter base has been radicalized to the point of violence. This is precisely why it is so important that we take every threat against our nation’s leadership seriously, no matter the forum from which it came.
Such is the case today as Melania Trump was forced to contact the Secret Service after a Hollywood heathen suggested that Barron Trump be caged and raped.
[Editor’s warning: The language employed below is quite vile and offensive.]
How on earth can anyone, let alone a man of considerable fame, believe that putting this sort of hate out into the world will accomplish anything?
Fonda’s tirades have been offensive and disturbing for some time, and have prompted the First Lady to alert the Secret Service regarding the threat.
Spokesperson for the first lady Stephanie Grisham told The Daily Caller that the Secret Service has been “notified” of the threat.
“The tweet is sick and irresponsible and USSS has been notified,” Grisham said. Fonda has been on a twitter tirade against White House officials, particularly females and children, over the past few days.
He called for the public caging and rape of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen in a tweet Tuesday. In the vulgar tweet, Fonda said “Kristjen Nielsen is a lying gash that should be put in a cage and poked at by passersby.” He continued, “The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passersby while being filmed for posterity.”
Knowing that the radical left has responded to these sort of dog whistles in the past, Hollywood and the cult of celebrity must reassess the level of culpability they hold in what comes next for our nation.
History will not look kindly on Peter Fonda for this, that is certain.
