Good for Peter Fonda

Yesterday Mr. Fonda sent a gut churning tirade aimed at Donald Trump's wife and child.  In it, he hoped for her and Barron to be put into a cell for brutalized torture and rape as punishment for Donald Trump.  He also suggested that people should descend en masse upon ICE agents' homes, surround them and show them a thing or two.  I'm sure nothing could go wrong with thousands convinced we're on the verge of the next Holocaust surrounding the homes of those being called the new Gestapo.

Anyway, he came out and apologized.  It looks like a sincere one, too.  Not the 'he made me do it' or 'I had no choice because Trump' types.   He seems to regret the horrible things he said.  Good for him. More than that, I'll add that his apology also seems to include President Trump.  If he meant he was also apologizing to the president, then dare I say Mr. Fonda displayed a sorely lacking bit of class, as well as good old manners.

It's worth noting I didn't see an apology for the call to rally at ICE Agents' houses.  Then again, he wasn't saying he wanted bad things to happen to them.  It's just that if you don't think it's possible that they could be hurt because somehow you believe the media narrative that bad things only originate right of center, you could be guilty of anything that might happen by reason of ignorance.

Nonetheless, he did apologize for what was the most egregious part of his statement, and for that he deserves credit.
