Tolerant Hillary Supporters to Susan Sarandon: “I hope Your Crotch is Grabbed” “I Hope You’re Raped”
Far left actress Susan Sarandon made headlines — And enemies — last year when she refused to endorse Hillary Clinton and instead supported Green candidate Jill Stein in the 2016 election.
To add insult to injury Sarandon tweeted this out a week after Hillary lost to Donald Trump.
To all those who find blaming me less painful than introspection, never knew I was this powerful. pic.twitter.com/etgSWBcH6a

The tolerant left hasn’t forgiven Susan Sarandon.
In an article published in the Guardian today Sarandon says she had to switch her phone number because unhinged leftists sent her threatening messages.
Of course, this surprises NO ONE on the right.
We’ve been living with the far left threats and abuse for decades now.
The Guardian reported:
For a long time Sarandon was despised by the right, her protests against the Vietnam war and US aggression in Nicaragua and Iraq making her the kind of target that, for progressives, is an affirmation of sorts. Her latest unpopularity, by contrast, comes exclusively from the left and is much tougher on Sarandon. “I’m not attacked from the right at all,” she will tell me. Instead, she is accused of not checking her white privilege, of throwing away her vote on a third-party candidate (the independent Jill Stein) during the US presidential election, and of recklessly espousing a political cause that let Trump in through the backdoor. Liberals in the US, it seems, can summon more hatred for Sarandon right now than they can for Paul Ryan…
… During the last election, Sarandon supported Bernie Sanders, then wouldn’t support Clinton after she won the nomination, and now all the moderates hate her, to the extent, she says, that she had to change her phone number because people she identifies as Hillary trolls sent her threatening messages. “I got from Hillary people ‘I hope your crotch is grabbed’, ‘I hope you’re raped’. Misogynistic attacks. Recently, I said ‘I stand with Dreamers’ [children brought illegally to the US, whose path to legal citizenship – an Obama-era provision – Trump has threatened to revoke] and that started another wave.”
Wait, from the right?
“No, from the left! ‘How dare you! You who are responsible for this!’”
I ask if she’s aware that Katha Pollitt recently called her an idiot in the New York Review of Books and she looks momentarily taken aback. “I’m flattered,” she says. These people are furious with you, I say.
