Peter Fonda calls Obama 'traitor' at Cannes
Yahoo News ^ | 5/19/11 | Staff

CANNES, France (AFP) – Peter Fonda launched a four-letter attack on US President Barack Obama at the Cannes film festival on Wednesday, calling him a traitor over the handling of the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.

The star of the 1969 road movie "Easy Rider" was in Cannes for the premiere of "The Big Fix" by Rebecca and Josh Tickell, the only feature documentary in the official selection at the Cannes film festival this year.

Fonda -- a keen environmentalist and co-producer of the film which centres on the explosion of the BP oil rig Deepwater Horizon, the ensuing spill and its consequences -- accused Washington of trying to gag reporting on the issue.

"I sent an email to President Obama saying, 'You are a f(expletive) traitor,' using those words... 'You're a traitor, you allowed foreign boots on our soil telling our military -- in this case the coastguard -- what they can and could not do, and telling us, the citizens of the United States, what we could or could not do'."

Watch out, Pete! You don't want your Hollywierd colleagues to call you a racist for dissing our dear leader. OTOH, don't see too many "persons of color" in the enviro movement. I've seen more diversity at a NASCAR race.

Pete will find out that dissent is NOT patriotic if it goes against the Dear Leader. His own will disown him.

Easy Rider. I knew Fonda Peters starred in a movie once. Wow, he must be like a hundred years old.

“You’re a traitor, you allowed foreign boots on our soil telling our military -”

Who were the foreign boots - is he referencing BP?

You nailed it.

Fonda and his pathetic sister have done all they can to undermine America. Obama is no different in that respect.

Good point. And why is the tea party movement criticized for allegedly being racist, due to not enough black or other minority participants? Yet the enviro-fascism movement is almost entirely white, from what we see. Why isn’t the enviro-fascist movement ever called out as racist?

Heck, why isn’t MSNBC ever called out for their lack of minority talking heads?????? A liberal channel lacks diversity but denigrates others for the same offense they commit.

I see that a lot of the old Hollywood rebel types don’t care anymore and just tell you what they think. Cranky old guys are the same all over no matter their profession.

I think so. BP gave the Coast Guard orders and the CG could`nt kiss their butts fast enough. My respect for the CG has plummeted since the oil spill.

And - of course - Peter Fonda is a glittering jewel of intellect.

I once smoked a joint with Peter Fonda.

Univ Hawaii Honolulu November 1970 - he came to speak at the outdoor theater, I suppose because of the fame of Easy Rider which had been released earlier that year. When he was finished, and the crowd left, about 6 of us invited him to sit in the grass there and talk and share some weed. He came across as a regular Joe. Oh those days of the Woodstock brotherhood - how painful to think how wrong we were.

“Fonda...accused Washington of trying to gag reporting on the issue.”

I think he got that part right.

He's finally grown up. It started around the time he did "Ulee's Gold". One of the best movies on how messed up white working class families are, and how the system is stacked against them.

A fine movie IMHO, which is why it went nowhere.

"He came across as a regular Joe. Oh those days of the Woodstock brotherhood - how painful to think how wrong we were".

Just about sums up my life. Fortunately I changed heading around the age of 22.

Once sex could kill you, the whole 70's thing wasn't so appealing anymore.

There are even more drugs being abused today. They just come with a copay and a plastic bottle from an institutional drug pusher, who unlike your pusher in the 70's, is more than happy to feed the stuff to your children. Heck the school demands it!

Ulee's Gold, which costarred Patricia Heaton I believe, who ironically enough is in the news today too:

Thank You Peter Fonda.

I don’t know about that. Sounds like he was pissed for all the right reasons.

The only thing I remember about Peter Fonda is him being in Easy Rider and then many years later, Ulee’s Gold. He never made headlines like his witch sister that I can recall so isn’t it possible that he isn’t an irrational, leftist maniac? His dim witted sister is still getting out and letting her commie colors show brightly. I just don’t remember Peter Fonda doing that.

That’s what I thought. Don’t remember too much about the movie though except that it was depressing; much in the same way Oridinary People & Terms of Endearment were.

" ... how painful to think how wrong we were."

A most powerful statement to we whom survive.

This administrations' handling of the Gulf is very odd. How could a foreign company declare a media blackout over the Gulf.

Seems there are many shadow powers behind Obama including Soros. The control of energy and oil is power, independence and wealth. All of which are being intentionally transferred away from the US
