WASHINGTON: Protests are peaceful until the violence begins. Which is why a “peaceful protest” is often a historic event in the media’s eyes. Now the former Mr. Roseanne Barr, Tom Arnold calls for attacks on Trump children and Murdoch family children in order to protest the President’s policies. Read that again, Arnold calls for attacks on Trump and Murdoch family children because of politics.
The doofus who became someone because he married well is threatening the President and his family. Not since John Wilkes Booth has an actor been so vile. Coincidentally one President sought to end slavery which the elite actor Booth could not abide. And this President wants to similarly secure our country against hordes of undocumented, illegal aliens, which Arnold cannot abide.
The hysterical left
Showing that they do not care about loving or protecting children, the liberal immigration argument has reached histrionic, possibly illegal, proportions. He who no one cares about anymore, Tom Arnold, along with Judd Apatow, is using 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

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.

Don Jr.’s oldest child is 11 years old.
And all this on the heels of Peter Fonda threatening the worst kind of violence on Barron Trump:
A protest, no matter how “peaceful” is intended to be a threat
Because when we threaten the President, the President’s family and children, there are consequences. Those consequences should come from the marketplace that will ignore, as they have since 1994, anything Arnold does.
But they should also come from law enforcement that remembers that liberal’s peaceful protests often become violent.
Writing in Psychology Today, When Do Peaceful Protests Turn Ugly? Researchers find that moral attitudes, as measured in tweets, predict violence. Writer Naveed Saleh M.D., M.S. outlines how “protests” quickly become ugly when whipped up on social media, as Arnold is clearly doing.
Using AI and Twitter, researchers at the Brain and Creativity Institute at USC discovered that people are more likely to promote violence when they are moralizing the issue about which they are demonstrating, according to a new paper in Nature Human Behavior. Furthermore, this effect is moderated by moral convergence, or the extent to which a person thinks others share similar moral attitudes.
“Extreme movements can emerge through social networks,” co-author Morteza Dehghani told USC News. “We have seen several examples in recent years, such as the protests in Baltimore and Charlottesville, where people’s perceptions are influenced by the activity in their social networks. People identify others who share their beliefs and interpret this as consensus.
In these studies, we show that this can have potentially dangerous consequences.” (emphasis added)

Arnold’s desperate plea for relativity does not end with the children.
Proving that anyone can be anything in America, Arnold – a former cocaine-addled, alcoholic who has not done anything of note since 1994 (True Lies) is now calling himself an investigative journalist. He is currently prepping a Viceland investigative documentary series intended to dig up dirt and damaging recordings from President Trump’s past; evidence Arnold says he intends to use to “end” Trump’s political career.
“Nobody thought I could ever be an investigative journalist, but then again, nobody thought Donald Trump could be President,” Arnold, 59, says in a press release. “Let’s hope this marks the end of both our new careers.”
Arnold also tweeted that Cohen has dirt on Trump and they are co-conspirators in a plot against the President as well.
“This dude [Cohen] has all the tapes — this dude has everything,” Arnold later told the media. “I say to Michael, ‘Guess what? We’re taking Trump down together,’ and he’s so tired he’s like, ‘OK,’ and his wife is like, ‘OK, fuck Trump.’”
“We’ve been on the other side of the table, and now we’re on the same side,” Arnold said. “It’s on! I hope [Trump] sees the picture of me and Michael Cohen and it haunts his dreams.”
Vice describes itself as “VICELAND is a channel of personal perspectives. We’re here for music, food, sex
Hard to take Arnold seriously, except for the threats against the children.
Like Fonda, Arnold is simply attempting to revive a career by jumping on the coattails of the #AntiTrumpers. Well the 20th Century is calling and they want their doofus back.
Arnold fits well with the nobody knows what it is Vice network. Well, maybe not fashion, but the sex and drugs, that Arnold knows plenty about. Pulled from obscurity by comedian Roseanne Barr their marriage was complicated by his drug and alcohol addictions. Internet Movie Data Base shows the following projects for Arnold: Hollywood.Con (post-production), Life Support (post-production) Pony with a Broken Wing (post-production), Undateable John (post-production), 2018 Bigger (post-production), 2018 Interrogation (completed) and 2018 Saving Flora (completed) each of which should be protested with a #StopTomArnold social media campaign.
All of which no one would know about except for his sophomoric and violent threats against the First Family and while we do not want to promote Arnold project, knowing about them means being able to start a #StopTomArnold campaign
The Punchline to a not funny joke
TOM ARNOLD was in town a couple of weekends ago to headline at Carolines on Broadway, a return after 16 years to stand-up comedy, the métier that set him on an up-and-down trajectory that has included, in no particular order, four weddings (the first two to Roseanne Barr), with a fifth on the way; a staggering number of appearances on late-night talk shows; and acting roles in “65 movies, three good ones,” as he put it. Several of these, particularly his high-profile roles as “the fat white sidekick” to his friend Arnold Schwarzenegger in “True Lies” and to Hugh Grant in “Nine Months,” have paid him a few million dollars each.
“It’s a pretty nice life if you like being a punch line,” Mr. Arnold said.
Fomenting hate on Social Media becomes violence in the real world
We will see what the Secret Service has to say about his latest attempt at reviving his career at the cost of fomenting more hate and violence, this time targeting children. And it has to stop.
From artists like Madonna talking about “blowing up the White House” to declaring she is “an angry woman”, encouraging violence against the president. To Johnny Depp asking “when is the last time an actor assassinated a President” or Kathy Griffith encouraging the President’s gruesome decapitation. Snoop Dog shot the President in his video.
Charlie Sheen prayed for the President’s death and Mickey Rourke posted “F–k him, f–k the horse he rode in on,” he said. “I think his wife is one of the biggest golddiggers around. I know, I used to go out with a golddigger…”
Each of these (bad) actors should be held accountable for their threats which transcend artistic or First Amendment freedoms. You can’t yell fire in a movie theater and you can’t threaten the President or his family.
Because someone will get hurt. And when they do, well, I told you so.
