WASHINGTON TIMES – CHERYL K. CHUMLEY
When Peter Fonda tweeted his thoughts on the border by calling for Barron Trump to be caged with a bunch of pedophiles, it didn’t take Melania Trump long to call for the Secret Service to investigate.
And right she was.
Fonda’s tweet was unconscionable.
But why isn’t the left calling out this Fonda tweet for the horrific content it contains? If this tweet named Malia or Sasha Obama instead of Barron, you better believe the Democrats would be up in arms.
Fonda wrote, in reference to the 12-year-old boy: “WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT A—HOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. F—.”
Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, called the tweet “sick and irresponsible,” The Hill reported.
Grisham also confirmed that Secret Service had been notified of the situation. Good deal on that.
But the tweet goes to the deeper root of Democrats’ mental state.
There’s Robert De Niro, taking to public stage and proclaiming “F— Trump,” as if he were making some sort of somber, serious political statement. There’s Kathy Griffin holding up bloody fake heads of President Donald Trump, all for comedic charm. There’s Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters, calling for resistance and impeachment against this president, this White House — caring little if that resistance takes a turn toward violent.
Those are but a few examples of loony leftist rants passed off as proper political dissent.
Now comes Fonda, with his sick and disturbing call-to-arms against a 12-year-old boy?
