Peter Fonda calls Obama a ‘fucking traitor’ over Gulf Oil Spill

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Peter Fonda, star of the 1969 classic film Easy Rider appeared at the Cannes Film Festival to promote The Big Fix, called President Obama a “fucking traitor” over his handling of the BP/Deepwater Horizon disaster that sent millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

Fonda is a co-producer on The Big Fix and an environmentalist.

He accused Washington of trying to gag unfettered reporting on the spill:

“I sent an email to President Obama saying, ‘You are a fucking traitor.’ 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.”

Fonda sent the email to Obama last week. In the The Big Fix, Fonda tries to get on the Louisiana beaches to assess the impact of the biggest oil spill in U.S. history, only to be turned away by BP’s clean-up personnel.

    Peter Fonda was always a working-class hero. An unapologetic antiwar activist and now, an environmental activist.

    But lets see how quickly the “new left,” AKA, Obama’s supporters have moved to the right and begin attacking Fonda for daring to hold the president accountable? The “new left” is very conservative by nature. Their blind allegiance to Obama is stunning.

    Just look how they support Obama’s military action in Libya?

  2. Pechanga says:

    Very few new reporters were allowed anywhere near the spill zone.

    This is why CNN’s Anderson Cooper was forced to report from the banks of the Mississippi along New Orleans. He even said BP refused him access. Where was Obama? Why did he not intercede on behalf of the media?

    Walk on Socks is so correct.

  4. stradella says:

    I bet Peter Fonda gets audited next year. Barry is one petty little brother.

  5. So? I bet you Fonda voted for that fucking traitor, too.

    I admit I applaud Mr. Fonda’s remarks, but he needs to take one step further and get his head out of his ass on his Progressive ideals and the lie of global warming.

    this is indeed a dangerous website not only because it asks all liberals and “leftists” to make fun of and mock conservatives, but also because it lends a sensibility to idiots on the Leftwing an assumption that they are not alone in holding ignorant opinions based on feelings instead of facts, and secondly, even worse it makes all who love left wing websites with little sensible content have a notion they are morally right . this is extremely sad. it is indeed orwellian so be surprised dear reader if you are allowed to see my comment and remember this website has to noticeable quotes– the first we all hold dear : “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell and the second quote ; this website’s credo My Liberal Identity:
    You are a New Left Hipster, also known as a liberal, a Netroots activist, or a Daily Show fanatic. You believe that if we really want to defend American values, conservatives must be exposed, mocked, and assailed for every fanatical, puritanical, warmongering, Constitution-shredding ideal for which they stand.
    for you the left of today are not able to inherit the Left Wing of the USA from the 60s, we the old leftists are now die – hard right wing common sense realists and nationalists and we will not roll over and let you ruin the United States….thanks to peter fonda for saying the same thing 20 million rifles want to say right now in the heartland…hoo rah

    You left out the best part of Fonda’s comments: Fonda denounced BP as “a bunch of Brits — I thought we kicked them out a long time ago. They tried to get back in in 1812, but they didn’t make it.” Take a look.

    Oil Spill Eater II There was a non toxic Alternative to clean up the spill that has been successfully tested by BP after 10 months of spill damages. The Coast Guard sent a letter from headquarters stating to the FOSC to take action with OSE II, and the EPA, Lisa Jackson stopped the Coast Guard from allowing BP from implementing OSE II. In fact the EPA stopped the application of OSE II 11 times denying State Senators direct request for use of OSE II from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. La Department of environmental requested the use of OSE II as well, EPA’s Sam Coleman denied their request without reason. Governor Jindal tried to get OSE II demonstrated on the Chandelier Islands on May 6, 2010, and the EPA stopped the Governor as well. The EPA in fact stopped the use of OSE II 11 times, without a reason given. Had the EPA allowed Governor Jindal to allow the demonstration of OSE II on May 6, 2010, it is possible a significant portion of the environmental damages, including the shorelines and the seafood industry would have been spared. The toxicty test comparison between OSE II and corexit really cannot be compared since with corexit, the label states it can cause red blood cells to burst, kidney, and liver problems if a chemical suit and respirator are not worn. OSE II in contrast can be used to wash your hands and is non toxic. The BP Deep Horizon spill has proven that corexit only sinks oil and causes the same oil to be addressed a second time when it comes ashore as under water plumes, or tar balls, while OSE II has a substantiated end point of converting oil to CO2 and water.
