On Peter Fonda’s Tweet about Barron Trump

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 ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. FUCK [sic]

There’s been much wailing and gnashing of teeth over the above tweet, but in my book the only thing over the top about it is the part about pedophiles. To the best of my knowledge, there is no deliberate policy about putting separated kids with pedophiles. Separated from their parents and put into cages, yes. And that’s quite bad enough.

If fascists don’t think it’s fair for it to be proposed that they get a dose of their own medicine, then maybe it’s time for them to reevaluate their decision to be fascists and to support fascist policies in the first place.

And note that this tweet was only a proposal, and not a serious one at that.  The First Family is one of the most heavily protected groups of people in the world. The odds of anyone being able to actually kidnap Barron Trump are so remote that they can be safely disregarded.

Meanwhile, there’s still over 1,000 children who were subject to Trump’s state-sponsored kidnappings that have yet to be reunited with their families. I suggest we should care more about the actual ongoing harm done to those children than to the harm being done to the delicate feelings of fascist snowflakes who can’t stand the idea of getting a taste of their own medicine.
