WASHINGTON: Despite their wolves in sheep’s clothing bleats about voter suppression and Russian voter meddling, Actor Peter Fonda has shared with liberals how they can easily perpetuate voter fraud. Leading to the question “Is promoting sedition and violence against another group via Twitter a chargeable offense?”
The answer is yes, yes it is.
According to the Electoral Knowledge Network Fonda’s advice could land you in jail, where Fonda should be awaiting his trial on sedition (conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state).
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
Peter Fonda promotes voter fraud to Twitterverse
Fonda is suggesting that parents take matters into their own hands. Fonda tweets that parents of young people, not likely to vote on their own, get early ballots, fill them out and send them in.

And really, given the suggestion, we have to believe people will do this. But you should not. It is against the law and the fines and jail time can be hefty (see above).
Casting a vote, as Fonda counsels, for another person is Impersonation
A voter casting one or more ballots in the name of other voters is called Impersonation and it is against the law. Encouraging our counseling others to cast votes for another person is sedition.
Impersonation should be investigated in cases where mail ballots have been apparently completed by a person other than the voter to whom they were officially provided. Voter fraud, such as Fonda suggests, may result in fines or jail time. Yes, been said multiple times. Needs to be said again. Fines and jail time for voter fraud can be bigly. Do not do it.
Threatening the President and his Family
Last month Tom Arnold, along with Judd Apatow, took to Twitter to call for protests around Barron Trump’s private school, the White House, the homes and schools of Rupert Murdoch’s children.
Way past sad & all in for these kids with @JuddApatow @FoxNews already hates me. On a plane to NY. Next is protesting Baron’s private school as well as James & Lachlan Murdoch’s kids. This is what I can do to end the abuse of these children. We’re going to make you uncomfortable https://t.co/ESAIWC49la
— Tom Arnold (@TomArnold) June 19, 2018
and then there is this:
Dude, we can protest at The White House too. Also Melania takes him to school. We want to have a word with her. If we see babies tomorrow we’re going to Kushners kids school. Don Jr’s kids are already working at Hooters so we’ll protest there for lunch.

Editor Note: Don Jr.’s oldest child is 11.
And all this on the heels of Peter Fonda threatening the worst kind of violence on Barron Trump:
When a protest calling for No Peace – No Sleep is a threat
Because when we threaten the President, the President’s family and children, there are consequences. Representative Maxine Waters needs a visit for her calls for attacks not only on the President but also his family, his cabinet and any and all conservatives:
The result of Water’s cry to violence ended up in violence as conservatives Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk were attacked while eating breakfast. Owens says they sat down to eat, thinking nothing of the other people sitting around them. She then noticed them, on their phones, calling others to protest :
So @RealCandaceO & I were peacefully eating breakfast this morning. Within 20 mins ANTIFA mobilized a protest, started screaming at us, attacked us, & threatened death against us
This is the face of the Democrats
— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) August 6, 2018
Owens tweet on the attack brings up that fact that ANTIFA was screaming anti-White screeds at the black woman.
To be clear: ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force.
Because I, a BLACK woman, was eating breakfast.
Is this the civil rights era all over again? pic.twitter.com/piJfnopniW
— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) August 6, 2018
Kirk and Owens chose to not file charges, despite the physical act. And they were wrong. Taking that high road emboldens further attacks.
Returning civility to the political discourse
Martin Luther King Jr. is often held up as a kingpin of civility in civil disobedience. In his letter from the Birmingham Jail he shares his deeply held Christian convictions. Quoting the words of Jesus, he directed them to the examples of Paul, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, and John Bunyan.
In his letter, King was forthright regarding the injustices faced by African Americans defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racism. King writes that people have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws and to take direct action writing “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.
But one thing King never did was stoop to personal attacks of those he disagreed with. He never approved the use of violence, or vitriol, by his followers. And he never used a call to violence in speaking with his followers. However, despite holding King up as a paragon of liberal virtue (King was neither a Republican or Democrat), Liberals and Democrats, like Maxine Waters, Peter Fonda, Tom Arnold and the liberal screamers of ANTIFA have forgotten King’s message.
The violence of liberals:
Investor’s Business Daily listed the following attacks against conservatives (Dispatches From The ‘Tolerant’ Left’s War On Trump Supporters)
- On Friday, Martin Astrof went to the campaign headquarters of Rep. Lee Zeldin, and then threatened to kill Zeldin and Trump supporters generally, according to news accounts of the incident. As he left, he nearly ran over a campaign staffer with his car.
- An angry Trump critic allegedly punched a homeowner in Boynton Beach, Fla., for having a Trump flag in his front yard, and then dragged the homeowner 30 feet while driving away.
- A bookstore owner in Richmond, Va., called the cops after a woman started harassing former Trump advisor Steven Bannon, who was browsing in the store. Former Clinton aide Philippe Reines later tweeted out the bookstore owner’s contact information, in a thinly veiled attempt to encourage attacks on the store. Reines defended the tweet, saying, “I’m providing a service.”
- A group of “protesters” following Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell out of a restaurant in Kentucky shouted “vote you out” and “we know where you live, bitch.”
- Brandon Straka — a gay former liberal who posted a video complaining that “the Left devolved into intolerant, inflexible, illogical, hateful, misguided, ill-informed, un-American, hypocritical, menacing, callous, ignorant, narrow-minded, and at times blatantly fascistic behavior and rhetoric” and sparked the #walkaway Twitter trend — says a local camera store refused to serve him. Thereby proving his point.
“I’m shaking right now,” Straka tweeted Thursday. “I just went into a camera store to buy a camera and a light and mic, etc., and they recognized me from TV. I was refused service because they said it was for ‘alt-right’ purposes.”
- Alan Dershowitz, once the darling of the liberal left until he started to question the merits of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, says that a woman at a party on Martha’s Vineyard was heard saying, “if Dershowitz were here tonight, I’d stab him through the heart.”
- Horror novelist and reliable Trump-hater Steven King sent a tweet over July 4 encouraging progressives to “go find a Trump-supporting friend — the one you haven’t spoken to since November of 2016 — and give him or her a hug. Trumpies, find a ‘liberal snowflake’ friend and do the same. Just for today, let’s all be Americans.” The response was an outpouring of outrage at King, with one woman tweeting that it was “The scariest thing you’ve ever written.”
And let us not forget that a Democrat operative working for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders went on a shooting rampage at a Virginia baseball park. His goal was to kill Republican members of Congress. Several were wounded, including House Majority Whip, Republican Steve Scalise, who has been seriously and permanently crippled by the wounds.
The NY Times reports (Politicians fear for safety as threats against Congress skyrocket):
Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia bought body armor. Rep. Gregg Harper hired armed security guards for events back home in Mississippi. And Rep. Dan Dovonan fortified his Brooklyn and Staten Island offices with security cameras and buzzer systems.
This is the new normal for members of Congress. One year after the horrific congressional baseball shooting that almost took the life of Rep. Steve Scalise and former Hill staffer Matt Mika, members are keenly aware that serving in public office has put a target on their backs.
Those that promote violence and sedition against the United States and our President need to be prosecuted. Following the President’s inauguration, more than two hundred persons were arrested for a rampage that resulted in store windows being broken and a limousine being set afire in the streets of D.C.
Despite the overwhelming violence and evidence, the government dropped charges against the protestors. It is time to stop that practice. Because in America there is a way to protest that which we don’t like. We can vote. Stage a sit-in. Arrange a March on Washington. Start an email or phone call campaign.
But the minute it turns violent, or invasive, its time to stop the protest, arrest those with the Molotov cocktail in their hand or trespassing on another individual and demand that the conversation be civil.
And yes, that applies to our President and his calls against the Fake Media. It may apply to his base. But it incites anger.
Let’s channel Martin Luther King Jr. and let the healing begin.
