Alec Baldwin should be charged with a hate crime for his apparent assault and threats against Daily Mail reporter George Stark.
Twitchy broke the story and now people are taking notice. Alec Baldwin has suffered another major public meltdown, this time on Twitter, and this one might do him in. The details are contained in Jim’s earlier post “Alec Baldwin Hurls Homophobic Threats Against Reporter After Wife Accused of Tweeting During James Gandolfini’s Funeral”
Baldwin’s twitter account has now been suspended, likely because what he did was not just morally horrific, as Jim’s post points out, but also illegal.
Let’s look at the facts. Alec Baldwin tweeted the following: “I’m going to find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and f**k…you…up.”
Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a threat of physical harm, also known as “assault.” Does anyone doubt that Alec Bladwin has the capacity to do exactly what he says he’s going to do in that tweet? Does anyone think he’s being sarcastic? If you were George Stark, should you assume that a raging mad man with a track record of hostility and nearly unlimited resources to do exactly what he says he’s going to do is just being sarcastic? I don’t think so.
Further, Alec Baldwin makes this threat of physical harm with language specifically targeting George Stark’s sexuality. Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a hate crime.
Are we a country of laws where everyone is treated equally, or are we living in a banana republic where the connected and the juiced can threaten harm against homosexuals and suffer only a suspended Twitter account?
If you or I tweeted threats like what Alec Baldwin tweeted, we would be facing a judge. Why shouldn’t Alec Baldwin? He obviously needs help. Maybe the legal system is where he’ll find it.
Charge Alec Baldwin with a hate crime now!

At least Andrew Breitbart never had his Twitter account taken away from him for publicly threatening to harm people.
