When will liberals learn that you don’t get to express a desire (which is incitement) to assassinate the president?
They certainly wouldn’t have let conservatives get away with saying such things about Barack Obama.
And yet, there was Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp telling an audience in England that he’d love to do just that to President Trump.
From Sky News:
Johnny Depp has joked about assassinating President Donald Trump while appearing on stage at the Glastonbury Festival.
He introduced his 2004 film The Libertine alongside director Julien Temple, but then began talking about religion and President Trump after questions from the 1,500-strong audience.
He said: “I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go.
“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living.
“However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”
The Trump-hating liberal crowd went wild.
But, try as he did to “qualify” his remarks, Depp could be in big trouble.
As noted above, the statement could be construed as incitement, which could lead to a criminal investigation.
We’ve already seen with this month’s DC shooter how words have consequences. It was months of Democratic incitement against Republicans that resulted in that tragedy.
Could Depp’s words cause yet another unhinged liberal to actually try to kill the president?
Even if that doesn’t happen, Depp just alienated a good half of his potential American audience.
Half of America voted for Trump, and we won’t tolerate actors who try to tell us we were wrong.
