Many liberal celebrities that range from Robert DeNiro to Kathy Griffin are legitimizing violence with their threats against President Trump and Republicans.  They are a danger because, unfortunately, unstable individuals may look up to them and act on their spiteful messages.  Not only is their advocacy vulgar and mean-spirited, but shows that they  may be dealing with mental health issues in their inability to accept reality. -GEG

Hollywood has issued dire predictions and hysterical warnings about Donald Trump ever since the Republican businessman first announced his candidacy for the presidency in June 2015.

But the level of vitriol and violent rhetoric against now-President Trump has increased substantially in recent weeks, from comedian Kathy Griffin’s now-famous shock “beheading” photograph to Shakespeare in the Park’s not-at-all-subtle “assassination” of Trump on a stage in New York City’s Central Park.

Unfortunately, Griffin and the director of Julius Caesar are not anomalies in Hollywood; actors, writers, directors, and other celebrities have fantasized about using violence against Trump, his supporters, and other GOP lawmakers for at least the past 18 months.

Below are 15 examples of celebrities who have used pointed, violent rhetoric to attack the president and other Republicans.

 

1. Kathy Griffin ‘Beheads’ Trump in Graphic Photo

The 56-year-old My Life on the D-List star sparked a firestorm (and a U.S. Secret Service investigation) when she was photographed holding the fake, bloodied, decapitated head of the president in an image that critics said was reminiscent of Islamic State propaganda.

Griffin was fired from her job on CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcasts and saw the cancellation of at least five of her scheduled performances, but remained defiant in an emotional press conference, blaming the backlash on sexism and vowing to continue to “make fun” of the president.

2. Madonna – “I’ve thought a lot about blowing up the White House.”

The pop singer became heated during the anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington in January, where she addressed an audience of thousands.

“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I’m outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything,” she told the crowd to roaring applause.

“Are you ready to shake up the world?” Madonna asked. “Welcome to the revolution of love, to the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny, where not just women are in danger but all regionalized people. Where being uniquely different, right now, might truly be considered a crime.”

The singer later said her remarks were taken out of context.

3. Snoop Dogg “Shoots” Trump in the Head in Music Video

The California rapper pointed a gun at the president (dressed to look like a circus clown) and pulled the trigger in a music video for his song “Lavender” earlier this year — though the gun is shown to be a prop gun, with a “Bang!” flag popping out of the barrel.

Still, the imagery was unmistakable.

“I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f*cking clown as president, and the sh*t that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being,” the rapper told Billboard.

4. Robert De Niro: “I’d Like to Punch Him in the Face”

The Oscar-winning actor participated in a voter registration PSA during the 2016 presidential race, but was filmed going off on Trump in a monologue during an outtake.

“He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, he’s a bullsh*t artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes,” the 73-year-old Godfather star said in the clip.

“He’s an embarrassment to this country,” he added. “He talks [about] how he wants to punch people in the face… I’d like to punch him in the face.”

5. Joss Whedon: “I Want a Rhino to F*ck Paul Ryan to Death”

The 52-year-old Avengers director — who released a star-studded PSA in support of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 race — took to Twitter in January to wish an untimely and unfortunate end to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).

“Violence solves nothing. I want a rhino to f*ck @SpeakerRyan to death with its horn because it’s FUNNY, not because he’s a #GOPmurderbro,” Whedon tweeted.

I wouldn’t worry about these people — no one really listens to them. Because Madonna said she thought about blowing up the Whitehouse doesn’t mean she was serious and no one pays her any mind. I have said this same thing. It is a figure of speech and hyperbole, and for Mr. Griffin to attempt to build up more hatred for so called “liberals” is beneath him, or so I thought. This article is reaching deep into the bag of the “Divide and Hate” program which too many “news” sites are presently doing. This goes for all, both left and… Read more »

Doran, the murderous propaganda on the left is wrong and it is designed to divide us.  It is meant to make a deep imprint on our psyches.  If you can’t see that, then you are the problem.  Or, maybe you are a problem on another sort…Your insults against Mr. Griffin are perfect examples of “critical theory,” a strategy to criticize and demonize the enemies of the left, and Western culture at large.  The news is the news- how about taking some responsibility for bad behavior on the left instead of trying to blame Griffin?  Go peddle your hate on another… Read more »
