While President Donald Trump remains banned from virtually every social media platform during the last few days of his first term in office, a familiar, hateful voice from a Hollywood has-been continues to spew violent rhetoric against the president and his followers.
In the wake of the recent deadly chaos in D.C., President Trump was deplatformed in short order from Twitter, Facebook, and a slew of other social media platforms for allegedly inciting the violence that overtook the Capitol with continued demands for the integrity of the November elections to be investigated.
But if you’re Alec Baldwin, good news! You can apparently use Twitter as an outlet to discuss your violent fantasies about the gruesome death of the president and his supporters without fear of being banned for violating the platform’s policies against “hate speech” or inciting violence.
Baldwin, 62, has enjoyed a bright resurfacing from his previous obscurity during President Trump’s first term thanks to his outlandish impersonations of the president on Saturday Night Live.
Although his television performances will likely fade into irrelevance once more with the inauguration of a new president, Twitter is so far doing its part to ensure that Baldwin’s violent tweets endure—the latest of which involves a “dream” in which Trump is hanged with reused “Covid masks.”
“I had a dream Trump was on trial for sedition,” Baldwin said last Friday. “And outside the courthouse, a noose was hung from a makeshift scaffold. The noose was made of recycled Covid masks.”
I had a dream Trump was on trial for sedition.
And outside the courthouse, a noose was hung from a makeshift scaffold.
The noose was made of recycled Covid masks.

As of this writing, the tweet is clearly still up and Baldwin has yet to be locked out of his account.
For what it’s worth, C. Douglas Golden points out for the Western Journal, Baldwin’s dream isn’t exactly a realistic one:
Not that these are the biggest problems with the tweet, but Trump wasn’t impeached for sedition, nor is it a crime for which the death penalty can be applied. Furthermore, recycled COVID masks seem like they’d be difficult to make a sturdy noose out of, although I’ll admit I’m not an authority in the field. Perhaps Baldwin has been doing his research.
As we’ve reported in the past, this is hardly the first time Baldwin has taken to Twitter to write his creepy death fantasies for the president.
In December, Baldwin considered what avenues could be taken if the president refused to concede the election to Joe Biden, including, “Pepper spray? Cuffs? A knee on his neck, cutting off his oxygen?”
Who arrests Trump if he refuses to concede?
Who drags him out?
Pepper spray? Cuffs?
A knee on his neck, cutting off his oxygen?
Does he wheeze “I can’t breathe.”
Just whale away on him like a piñata?
Rodney King style?
The thug who has destroyed the country. What does he deserve?

“Bury Trump in a Nazi graveyard and put a swastika on his grave,” he wrote back in November. “The majority of Americans made the right choice. Trump is a maniac.”
While Baldwin shows no signs of softening his rhetoric against the president, Twitter leaves him alone while simultaneously purging thousands of accounts for their association with the QAnon conspiracy theory.
Twitter told the Daily Caller News Foundation that it would “take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm, and given the renewed potential for violence surrounding this type of behavior in the coming days, we will permanently suspend accounts that are solely dedicated to sharing QAnon content.”
So thousands of QAnon believers must be banned because their theory could “lead to offline harm,” but Mr. Baldwin’s continued expressed desire for the brutal death of the president is just peachy keen. Is that the America you want to live in?
