Cannes 2011: Peter Fonda encourages his grandchildren to take up arms against President Barack Obama
The London Telegraph ^ | May 22, 2011 | Richard Eden

Posted on 05/21/2011 11:29:13 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Lars von Trier, who was banned from Cannes for praising Hitler, was not the only one making unsavoury comments at the film festival.

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.

“I prefer to not to use the words, 'let’s stop something’. I prefer to say, 'let’s start something, let’s start the world’.

“There’s no room any more for a cissy and, like I said, don’t forget that I’ve got grandsons who I’ve trained with long-distance rifles. We have to run like mofos to change this world.”

What does he have to complain about? If Barack Hussein Obama ain't far enough left for you, you've got problems!

Two words, Peter... Joe Biden. You really want to inflict that on America ?

They’re never happy.

This country has never been more socialist than it is now and to them, there’s always a reason other than socialism itself that it fails. So they take more. And more.... Making up more “bad guys” as they go along.

And Peter Fonda sounds like he’s gone nuts.

He is a one hit wonder, who happens to be the son of a famous and very talented film star.

He is, also, the brother of a traitor.

I will be interested to see if the SS, in between their monitoring of FNC, find the time to pay him a visit, though.

“I prefer to say, ‘let’s start something, let’s start the world’.”

Proof Dennis Hopper was the real brains and talent in that cinematic duo.

I’m pretty sure Peter and Jane Fonda have been living in their own worlds for a long time now.Why start yet another one?

I odn’t know about that. Hopped was blasted out of his mind during the making of the movie, and his original cut was hours and hours long and had to be radically pruned.

Most people here seem to be getting something different from what he said, including the ‘reporter’ of the story. I don’t think he was saying he wanted his grankids to shoot the president, but that because of Obama’s policies, ultimately there would be a new civil war, and he wanted his grandkids ready.

Being a mega-lefty, he’s probably annoyed that Obama is just another Republican or whatever.

They didn’t stop a war, they made the administration(s) afraid of winning it. Leading to the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese.

It’s a pity that Henry Fonda didn’t have the foresight to use birth control back in the ‘30s and ‘40s (especially the ‘30s). Had he been able to see the future, I’m sure he would have.

“Easy Rider” stopped a war...”

Geez, ol’ Fond’a Peters is just as sozzled now as he and Dennis Hophead were then. We watched his movie in Vietnam; the ‘heads liked it for the drug depictions, and rednecks like me liked it because it had a happy ending (they wore out the projector reversing and forwarding the chopper arcing slowly through the air).

“Millions also practice with rifles”

So true. Only I got to practice/qualify at government expense in the reserves until early this year when they forced me to retire. Now I have to use my own ammo. Durn!

Mr. Fonda played played the priest in "The Maldonado Miracle,"' which was a nice Catholic cult flick. I think these intelligent FReepers presume from the headline (like they always do) something quite divorced from reality.

parallel universe alert.

Peter Fonda, now 70 years of age has experienced near death before in his life and ‘Easy Rider’ was a dark, twisted tale of highs and lows through life on the road. Perhaps Fonda’s rarest gift to himself was a gunshot wound on his 11th birthday. The accident almost killed him, but luckily it was a stomach wound.

Peter Fonda has a net worth of $40 million.

On his eleventh birthday, he accidentally shot himself in the stomach and nearly died. Years later, he would reference this incident to John Lennon and George Harrison while taking LSD with the Beatles, and claiming “I know what it’s like to be dead”, which ended up becoming an direct influence behind the Beatles song “She Said, She Said”.

“What does he have to complain about? If Barack Hussein Obama ain’t far enough left for you, you’ve got problems!”

My guess is that Peter Fonda is of the hard-core communist branch of the left-wing. Him and others hard core ‘communist’ type leftists are not very happy with Obama being that are getting left-wing fascism instead of all out socilaism/communism.

Take the health-care debates for example. The hard core communist style leftist is not happy at all being that they want us to move to a full blown pure socialist system like single payer. What we have now instead is Obamacare which is a very fascist style system of back room deals between companies and the government. Waivers are handed out to cronies, etc...

This is a case of the left-wing communist being angry at his left-wing fascist brotheren.

You have to smile at far Fonda takes his angry rant. He is even says there is no room for sissies. Very racist or phobic, yea right, lol.

That describes filmmaking in the 70’s.

Hopper was a genius and one of the few openly Conservative legends in both the art and film world.

If you mean me, it’s “Peet”.

Charlie Manson rode a bicycle around this area picking up cans at the roadside for the deposits. Five cents. At least he looked like Mansom and the squirrels in the catalpa trees SAID it was Manson.

Should I not believe the squirrels? You? the invisib1e hand?

I don’t believe Dan Rather for sure, but SOOoooo unsure about y’all and the squirrels.
