Peter Fonda Barack Obama: Peter Fonda Arming Against Obama – Long Range Rifles

Easy Rider star, Peter Fonda, and brother of the infamous Jane, spoke out at the Cannes Film Festival, saying he is teaching his grandchildren to arm themselves for conflict against Barack Obama. He’s training the kids. In fact, the article says he is “encouraging” his grandchildren to “shoot” Barack Obama.

The Telegraph:

Peter Fonda, the star of Easy Rider, suggested to Mandrake that he was encouraging his grandchildren to shoot President Barack Obama.

“I’m training my grandchildren to use long-range rifles,” said the actor, 71. “For what purpose? Well, I’m not going to say the words ‘Barack Obama’, but …”

He added, enigmatically: “It’s more of a thought process than an actuality, but we are heading for a major conflict between the haves and the have nots. I came here many years ago with a biker movie and we stopped a war. Now, it’s about starting the world.

Is he planning to war against Obama because we have gone into Libya? Hasn’t closed Gitmo? Hasn’t brought all the soldiers home? or…is Fonda saying he will engage a long-range rifle to protect our U.S. Constitution and the Rule of Law? What do you think?

Speaking of Cannes, in an interesting read, Euripides at Self Evident Truth points to a Science Daily article on dark energy driving our Universe apart, and suggests the Cannes Film Festival is that dark energy.

  • I really don’t believe that Fonda is of the conservative mind. Peter and his sister Jane for all these years have shown that they are leftists. I don’t think he all of a sudden had a change of heart and knows or understands our Constitution nor would he side with the conservatives.

    • Fran, I really do not understand this story, and think the words “shoot” Obama are shocking. It will be interesting to see what comes of this. Surely the Secret Service will appear on his doorstep and we’ll hear more.

  • Definately dangerous in what Fonda was saying. I believe he’s a bit of a leftist nut.

  • Nan is the message I got; he seems to think that rather than being satisfied with social programs, the have nots will decide to take what others have.

  • I met Peter at a Film Festival held in Bozeman Montana a few years back. He received the Gary Cooper award I sculpted for the show. Jeff Bridges presented him with it. Got to sit and talk to both actors. Peter speaking on stage, was a bit over the top. You don’t hire actors for their intelligence. I’ll tell you one thing, his wife is such a gem. She comes up to my belt.. lol.. Whenever I saw her, she’d give me a great hug.. What a joy meeting both. Peter is not someone I’d listen to though. He’s just a kinda good actor.. Can’t touch his dads feet though. Not that he was a gem in real life either.

  • The Fondas neet to stay out of the political arena. Actors make a living being pretenders.
