It’s a sad existence when you can’t even let go of political divides on a holiday like the Fourth of July.
For many leftists suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome though, holidays usually only crank the political divisiveness up to 11.
“Avengers” director and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator Joss Whedon took to Twitter on America’s Independence Day and decided to do what Hollywood celebrities typically do best when it comes to politics — spread fear and misinformation.
“We have a racist, fascist president who’s using armed thugs in law enforcement & illegal militias to keep us cowed & hopeless & he’ll take the 2020 election by armed force & blatant, treasonous criminality & that’s us now, we’re the country with concentration camps so happy 4th,” the director tweeted.

Calling the president “racist” and “fascist” is nothing new for a member of Hollywood’s elite, but saying he is using “illegal militias” to keep people “cowed” and “hopeless” is a bit new.
Whedon predictably provided no evidence for any of the nonsense he was spewing.
Trump is not using illegal militias to do any such things. Whedon’s so enclosed in the safety bubble of Hollywood that he legitimately feels safe describing his living conditions as comparable to those of people living under actual dictators.
What about Whedon’s life is so “hopeless” under Trump? On a national holiday, he was free to sit on a phone that likely costs 10 times what the average person can afford and tweet out an incredibly unpatriotic message with no truth behind it to nearly a quarter million followers.
On top of this, Whedon is a millionaire film director. He’s directed monster hits like “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” He’s also created hit television shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel,” so the likely financial comfort that protects Whedon today is something most Americans can only dream about.
That sort of financial success, by the way, from creativity could only exist in America.
Still, people like Whedon want to scream at the sky while they wave their fists and drop crocodile tears over the fantasy things they believe the president has done.
Whedon also recently seemed to insinuate that he wanted to see President Donald Trump dead or at least seriously injured.
“I don’t think I can say what I think should happen to Donald Trump without getting banned, but I will say this: it definitely takes place at a border,” the director tweeted the day before Independence Day.

The only real justice here is that Trump Derangement Syndrome seems to have stalled Whedon’s creativity a bit.
Ever since he began taking to Twitter to wish death on those he disagrees with, Whedon’s career has definitely slowed.
Marvel’s “Avengers” franchise has moved on without him to two films far more successful than his were.
He was also set to direct a “Batgirl” movie only to part ways with Warner Bros. after he infamously ruined Zack Snyder’s “Justice League.”
De Niro and other extreme leftist celebrities like Whedon have proven that Trump Derangement Syndrome usually doesn’t spell out good things for one’s career.
