Peter Fonda Slammed After Attacking Barron, Labeled 'Domestic Terrorist'

Share

I suppose the only good news for the Fonda family this week, if you could call it that, is that Hanoi Jane is no longer the member of the clan most despised by America.

I mean, sure, she did pose atop a Viet Cong anti-aircraft gun, but there’s a certain segment of liberal Baby Boomers that are willing to forgive any sort of liberal excesses of the Vietnam era.

Suggesting that the child of the president ought to be locked in a cage with pedophiles because you disagree with aspects of the president’s immigration policy isn’t just something that conservatives find reprehensible. Pretty much everyone with a soul was left gagging in disgust after Peter Fonda’s truly heinous tweet.

But does his tweeting make him a “domestic terrorist?” Well, the nation’s largest Border Patrol union says yes.

In case you’d missed the breadth of the Peter Fonda Twitter escapade, his suggestion that Barron Trump be raped wasn’t the only reprehensible thing he said this past week, although it was certainly the worst. However, receiving less coverage was a threat to Border Patrol agents, saying that Americans should rise up and terrorize them in their homes.

“WE SHOULD HACK THIS SYSTEM, GET THE ADDRESSES OF THE ICE AGENTS CBP AGENTS AND SURROUND THEIR HOMES IN PROTEST,” Fonda tweeted Wednesday, according to Breitbart.

“WE SHOULD FIND OUT WHAT SCHOOLS THEIR CHILDREN GO TO AND SURROUND THE SCHOOLS IN PROTEST. THESE AGENTS ARE DOING THIS CUZ THEY WANT TO DO IT. THEY LIKE DOING THIS. F***.”

While most people took this as a sign that Fonda left behind way too many brain cells in the 1970s, the National Border Patrol Council took that as an untenable threat.

“Once again, we have a deranged liberal ‘star’ born with a silver spoon in his mouth who thinks play-acting as a ‘tough guy’ in a movie equates to being a tough guy in real life. This guy is the lowest of the low!” a statement on the NBPC’s website reads.

Do you think Peter Fonda is a domestic terrorist?

“Peter Fonda and his sibling ‘Hanoi Jane’ Fonda have been extremely wealthy since birth. They can afford armed guards, luxury, private schools and massive home security measures. Border Patrol agents cannot afford these things. We actually work for a living. This is the same Peter Fonda who advocates taking guns away from average Americans on one hand and then encourages domestic terrorism against average Americans on the other hand. Think about that for a minute. How wise were our Founding Fathers to include the 2nd Amendment in our founding documents?”

The NBPC’s statement noted that unlike Hollywood, things are dangerous (and sometimes ugly) out in their world.

“Law enforcement isn’t pleasant Peter, it isn’t a movie where you are constantly being catered to by sycophants and you’re pampered, protected and made to think you’re really someone better than the rest of us,” the statement continued. “You aren’t!”

“For us, the bad guys and the constant danger are real. Ask the Tucson agent who was shot last week by illegal aliens, Peter. Yes Peter, the bullets were actually real. Do his traumatized children deserve to be terrorized at their schools because he’s a Border Patrol agent. What about his wife? Should she be hunted down and terrorized too? What about the children of agents who have been killed in the line of duty Peter? Should they be terrorized at school as well?

“Peter, you are a despicable, hateful, spoiled, and entitled punk. Your life of privilege since birth is not what most of us deal with. We have to work hard every day to make a living for our families. Some of us do dangerous jobs that most Americans wouldn’t touch. Our children have to put up with enough as it is. Demonizing us is low. But encouraging domestic terrorism against our children is unforgivable.”

Peter Fonda is a genuinely awful human being. I don’t know whether that rises to the level of being a domestic terrorist, but I can’t think of any better description of someone who threatens Border Patrol agents on social media. This is beyond sick — and the sad thing is, he still has a Twitter account. Talk about social media bias.
