One might be able to set up an entire website counter, keeping track of every asinine comment about Trump to trundle out of Hollywood, each comment stupider than the last(see TOLERANCE: Robert De Niro Still Wants to Punch President Trump and Shia LaBeouf Goes Full Crazy, Leads Violent Anti-Trump “Art Project”). Well, Joss Whedon upped the game, Tinseltown. Buffy’s dad thinks “we” (the USA) might start purging the country of its
Buffy’s dad thinks “we” (the USA) might start purging the country of its gays a la Chechnya.

“…it’s where we’re headed if we don’t unite and act.”
Here’s the tweet Jossy-poo was quoting:
Chechnya has begun a massacre of its gay male population. https://t.co/BrAPyfiq6o

Now considering of all US presidents, Trump is the most LGBT friendly, or ambivalent (he cares not a whiff), we have a Mr. Pointy message for Joss:
I mean, Donald Trump…the first president to ever enter office already supporting gay marriage? Donald Trump who supported gay marriage for longer than either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton did? Joss here thinks Trumpster is going to round up TEH GAYZ, crowd them into a poorly designed cattle car, and cart them off to a backwoods square dance, where the rednecks of the wild, wild wilderness might purge them of their sins before executing them en masse?
On top of which, I will bet all the money in my pockets right now that if one were direct Joss here to Muslim countries killing gay people, or how rounding up and killing TEH GAYZ is a cornerstone of Islam, Joss Whedon would be the first to scream “THAT’S ISLAMOPHOBIA, YOU ISLAMOPHOBIC ISLAMOPHOBE!”
Look it, I actually went to the NYT article to find some key passages which might trigger the “ISLAMOPHOBIC” gutter squawkery:
While abuses by security services in the region, where Russia fought a two-decade war against Islamic insurgents, have long been a stain on President Vladimir V. Putin’s human rights record, gay people had not previously been targeted on a wide scale.
It began, Novaya Gazeta reported, after a Moscow-based gay rights group, GayRussia.ru, applied for permits to stage gay pride parades in four cities in Russia’s predominantly Muslim North Caucasus region, of which Chechnya is a part.
The group had not focused on the Muslim areas. It had been applying for permits for gay parades in provincial cities around Russia, and collecting the inevitable denials, in order to build a case about gay rights and freedom of assembly with the European Court of Human Rights, in Strasbourg, France.
What’s happening in Chechnya, the gays being hurried to their deaths, is due to Islam. Because in Islam, thou shalt be a man who takes many wives. Not a man who likes to stick his wand in another man’s poop dispenser.
So yes, Joss. This might happen in America. But not because of Trump. But because of Islam. But based on Joss’s past tweets, we can deduce with credibility he’s not talking about Islam in his tweet. He’s referring to Trump and conservatives. Sure, sure, I’ll slap an “ALLEGEDLY” on there. For the lawyers.
Here, proof Joss is a few one-liners short of a full Scoobie gang:
At this point in the Trump administration, Idi Amin eating his enemies seems weirdly respectful

Stick to the fantasyland of Hollywood, Joss. You’re crazy is coming out too hot for the rest of us.
