Actor Peter Fonda, the brother of left-wing actress Jane Fonda, came under fire on Monday for calling for deliberate voter fraud in order to stop President Donald Trump and Republicans.
As noted by The Daily Wire, Fonda — who made headlines earlier this year for saying he wanted to “rip Barron Trump from his mother” and place him in a “cage with pedophiles” — is now calling on people to commit fraud in the election.
In a now deleted tweet, Fonda called on Democrats to use whatever fraud necessary — mail or theft — to defeat Trump and Republicans.
In response to a Twitter user who expressed concern that “only 21 percent” of millennial’s voted in the 2016 presidential election, Fonda viewed it as an opportunity to encourage voter fraud.
“Then we have to take them by the hand and lead them to the water and teach them to drink! If you have a millennial in your family, take their early ballots, fill them out and mail them in, or take the ballot to the voting place and give it to the officials… no more worrying!”
He deleted the tweet as criticism mounted online, but social media users were able to capture a screenshot before it was taken down:
Twitter users immediately noted that Fonda appeared to encourage people to commit voter fraud:

Did you just tell people to go and commit electoral fraud? 🤔
Because that's electoral fraud. You know. A felony. https://t.co/Q9yIHjWKpA

Wow. Pete Fonda telling adults to take young adults ballots and fill it out for Democrats if they are not voting the way they want them to. https://t.co/8RLdgWqNYx

Sadly, this is hardly the first time Fonda has come under serious fire for making disgusting comments.
In June, he posted a disturbing message on Twitter, calling for Barron Trump to be kidnapped and thrown in cages with pedophiles.
“WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT A**HOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. F***.”
Prior to that, he called for “90 million” protesters to hit the streets to protest Trump.
It’s more than a protest! 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend works. I can’t be the organizer for they’ll arrest me for conspiracy to commit sedition. This must be like a spontaneous event without seeming to be organized by me and we have to make this happen NOW https://t.co/be9IDUN15c

Many would agree that Fonda is a vile human being who has made a slew of disturbing comments, and now he is encouraging Democrats to commit voter fraud in order to defeat Trump.
Should he be charged for this?
