Liberal loon Johnny Depp went too far

By June 24, 2017June 26th, 2017Politics, Pop Culture

Johnny Depp is an unpatriotic loser who apparently has no respect for human life, public safety or even our democracy.

He should also be arrested for inciting violence against our president.

He made headlines on Thursday at a festival in the U.K. telling the 1,500-strong audience in Glastonbury, “I think he (Trump) needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go. … When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

He then added, “I want to clarify, I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while, and maybe it’s time.”

Time for what Mr. Depp? To toy with the idea of assassinating the president of the United States? Are you channeling the ghost of John Wilkes Booth — the actor who killed President Lincoln — just for a sick joke?

It’s a criminal concept only a madman — or jihadist — would approve.

Depp’s reckless comments have no place in a civilized society. Especially in today’s extremely volatile political climate where just last week a Bernie Sanders supporter showed up at a GOP charity baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., and shot Majority Whip Steve Scalise who — in case Johnny Depp has callously forgotten — is still recovering in the hospital.

If it weren’t for the fact that Scalise had armed security in tow, many more GOP lawmakers could have been cut down that day, including Texas Rep. Joe Barton’s 10-year-old son in attendance that morning.

Depp — who offered up a meek apology yesterday — should face legal consequences. Free speech doesn’t allow us to scream fire in a crowded movie theater as a joke. Nor is it a laughing matter to talk about assassinating anybody.

It’s no secret Hollywood is filled with liberal loons. But what’s troubling is to see political extremism take over La La Land.

Kathy Griffin’s career is in the toilet after she posed holding a bloody mask of Trump’s decapitated head. But that’s just an extreme example. Depp is more mainstream with his hate and that’s scary.

What Depp forgets is we have elections where voters choose the winners. If he doesn’t like the outcome, try running for office.

Extremists don’t deserve our money or accolades. What they do deserve is a jail cell to contemplate their reckless rhetoric that undoubtedly could instigate more blood on our streets — and baseball fields.

Not a scenario anyone should ever support — I don’t care how you vote.
