There was once a time when liberals were for peace and love and tolerance and they meant it. The free speech movement was started at Berkley in California where they welcomed opposing opinions.
Today’s snowflakes at U.C. Berkeley want anything but opposing opinions. If you oppose them they start riots and burn cars and buildings like they recently did at Berkeley with just the threat of the likes of Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter coming there to speak. All you have to do today is just disagree with a liberal and you’re automatically labeled a racist, sexist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, Nazi, fascist and you’re in the dark ages to boot just for disagreeing with them and they call it freedom of speech.
I have never seen a climate so poisonous and so venomous and vile that it is inevitable that something really serious is going to happen and happen soon. The recent shooting of Republicans and Steve Scalise at the charity baseball game is one example that could have been worse. There are plenty of unhinged nuts out here who will do something like this. There are suicide bombers in this country willing to blow themselves up. How crazy is that???
It is getting extremely difficult to keep track of the ever increasing number of fading Hollywood stars threatening to harm or kill President Donald Trump. The latest outrage occurred when overrated actor Johnny Depp joked about assassinating the President at a U.K. music festival. He asked the crowd “When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?” This was obviously a reference to actor John Wilkes Booth who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. He dug an even deeper hole when he followed his question by making a thinly veiled threat on the President’s life. Amazingly, he told the crowd, “it’s been a while, maybe it is time.”
For these remarks, Depp should be visited by the Secret Service and possibly charged with threatening the life of President Trump. It is a Class E felony; punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine.
Depp’s ravings follow a string of outrageous antics by radical leftists. In just the last few weeks, a Trump assassination play was staged in New York City, comedian Kathy Griffin was pictured holding a decapitated head of Donald Trump, actor Jim Carrey joked about bashing the President with a golf club, rapper Snoop Dogg produced a video with a Trump clown being shot and actor Robert DeNiro expressed a strong desire to punch the President in the face and Madonna talks about wanting to blow up the white house.
The reason that the President and Republicans are winning these elections is that voters want to see action on the serious issues facing the country. All the Democrats are offering is a loathing of Trump, an obstruction of his agenda and a constant obsession with the “Russia investigation.”
Most Americans are more concerned about rising health care costs, border security, tax cuts, wage growth, infrastructure improvements than the “Russia investigation,” which has no tangible impact on their lives.
I’ve always said these celebs are great at what they do, but when it comes to politics they are political morons. You ask anyone of them why they hate Trump and they’ll give you a half-assed answer or beat around the bush or give you something that is totally misinformed. I would wager that 90% of these people who criticize Trump are basing their opinion of him on things that are totally false distributed by the biased fake news destroy Trump media. It’s been seven months now and they still can’t get over that they lost, they have no leaders, no substance, no vision and can’t offer anything for the people so all they do is bash, bash, bash and Russia, Russia, Russia and resort to name calling, obstruction and stomping their feet like little kids.
Recently on Sean Hannity’s nighttime show Fox News anchor and attorney Greg Jarrett was asked by Sean if these threats by people like Johnny Depp and Kathy Griffith and others could be construed as a threat and punishable by a visit by the secret service and five years in prison. Garret replied that it has to be a knowing and willful act to be construed as a viable threat. Being stupid and offensive in itself and in bad taste is not in itself a viable threat.
I did read that the s. s. did pay Kathy Griffith a visit and all her bookings canceled her and the s.s is investigating Depp’s statement. Depp did issue an apology afterward. Johnny Depp has issued an official apology for his controversial statements regarding the potential assassination of President Donald Trump by an actor, calling it a “bad joke.” In an exclusive statement to People magazine, the embattled Pirates of the Caribbean actor said, “I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump.” What’s more, he explained, “[i]t did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.” It comes on the heels of the White House’s official response courtesy of Kellyanne Conway, who called it “no laughing matter.” Johnny Depp issues an apology for his ‘bad joke’ about the assassination of Pr
These people make these accusations and then when they get caught they apologize and think everything is OK and then they do it again. Kathy Griffith apologized for her actions and then two days later accused Trump of bullying her.
Meanwhile, Trump is continuing to move the country forward. He’s cut the debt by 4 trillion, there are 500,000 new jobs because he cut regulations by Obama. The economy is booming, the NASDAQ increased by 260%, Standard and Poors is up by 360% and he is getting the centrist Dems to meet with him on tax reform. This is all on top of all the other things he has done like getting rid of TPP, completing the Dakota pipeline so it does not interfere with environment, getting the Keystone pipeline going, meeting with 40 men and women CEO’s to discuss their successes and where they can have improvements, signing 35 pieces of legislature and just last week signing legislature to have our vets get the help they sorely need. They can have their own doctors and be covered by vet insurance and the administration will have people overseeing them to see they are being correctly served and anyone not doing their jobs will be fired. The legislature also protects whistleblowers in the VA. Whenever Trump signs a piece of legislature to be made into a law he always does it publicly and holds it up for everyone to see, but these liberal hate mongers are too immersed in thinking of new ways to hate him that they do not notice his successes. Maybe they don’t want to know. All of Trump’s executive actions so far
So let the liberal hate mongers have their way. They are only ruining themselves and their party. As folk singer Bob Dylan once sad, “Get out anyone if you can’t lend a hand for the times they are a changin’.
