Los Angeles, CA – Over the weekend, Tom Arnold indicated that he is ready to engage in violence with White House security. Specifically, he is ready to engage in an act of war. The move came as he shared an image on Twitter of security measures being taken in DC to protect the White House.
2nd Amendment is for everyone including black men with long guns but it's fucking time for us white liberal men to stand up for our brothers & sisters. Borrow our dad's hunting rifles & go nose to nose with Trump’s gang of misfit tools. Let's do it @robreiner #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/KIf5OFAp3r

Arnold calls on white liberal men to go borrow hunting rifles from their dad’s and start fighting back against these security forces. Arnold is inciting violence under the guise of Black Lives Matter. Of course, violence is no stranger to the Black Lives Matter movement.
The movement sparked protests, that have turned into riots in the past several weeks across the United States. The protests were after George Floyd was tragically killed in police custody. Multiple people have lost their lives due to the riots across the nation.
Arnold’s suggestion that white liberal men should take up hunting rifles against White House security is interesting for multiple reasons. Washington, DC gun laws prohibit the open carry of firearms in the city. It is also a crime to borrow a firearm to carry in the city. Essentially, Arnold is saying that he does not care what the law is.
To suggest that people disobey gun laws goes against the very argument of gun control that the liberals have claimed for years. They have said that gun free zones will prevent gun violence, but here they are advocating for such violence in an area that gun ownership is restricted. They advocate for strict gun laws to prevent crimes in the streets. Here they are wanting firearms just so they can commit gun crimes in the streets.
Others in Hollywood spoke out against Arnolds comments. Chuck Woolery said that the comments were ignored by Twitter and the media. Arnold calls for violence, but Twitter refused to address it. Some have responded that he was talking about “gun nuts” but it’s clear from Arnold’s tweets he was talking about the federal law enforcement he was showing in the shared video.
Where is the liberal rage for such suggestions of violence and acts against Trump and Trump supporters? The left will go crazy when a threat is made against one of their own, but they remain silent when they are making threat or suggesting violence. It’s a perfect example of the double standard and the bias in social media that Trump has referenced for some time.
