When you become as unhinged as Peter Fonda there is something far more wrong with you than politics.
In now deleted Tweets, Fonda called for 12-year-old Barron Trump, our president’s son, to be caged with pedophiles, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders children to be removed from her, and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Neilson, to be stripped naked, put in a cage, and tortured while being filmed “for posterity.” This man should immediately be put on every government watch list and banned forever from the entertainment industry.
What prompted his meltdown? He demands better treatment of illegal immigrant children. Oh, okay, let’s attack women and children as a means to show how much we care about women and children. In what hemisphere is this okay?
According to him, we should brutalize women and children based on politics. That means that all of you in the #Metoo movement according to Fonda if you disagree with him you should be stripped, raped, tortured and caged; and your children too. You going to stand for that? Are you going to let this man undo all the progress you’ve made, the changes you’ve implemented, and all the respect you’ve earned?
Who will step up and say this is far from okay? Who will ban him from the stage, Screen Actors Guild, or the Motion Picture Association of America? Will directors Patricia Riggen, Daniel Sackheim, Carlton Cuse, and Morten Tyldum replace him in Jack Ryan as was done to Kevin Spacey? Will writer Tom Clancy make a teachable moment by ending Jack Ryan as was done to Roseanne Barr?
This is by no means a defense of Spacey, Barr, or any of the others. This is calling a spade a spade. It’s about abuse and torture of women and children being more important than politics, entertainment, or childish outbursts.
Fonda is a despicable human being. It doesn’t matter he deleted the Tweets. It matters that he not only had the thoughts but deemed them acceptable enough to put on Twitter. Which means his warped mind believed the majority of people would acquiesce. It is not only repulsive it’s horrifying. If he is willing to publicize his disgusting intentions at a time when celebrities are being fired, banned, and sued for mistreatment of women we have no reason to believe he will not act on his sick impulses.
There is a line in humanity that is not erased by politics, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or race. It’s not a fluid line. It doesn’t move. There is unequivocally no reason to EVER say the vile things he did. The question is, America, what will you do about it?
