Like a lot of famous people who have dared to express some progressive side to their politics online, English actor Jason Isaacs draws right wing trolls and reactionary fuckheads to him like flies.
As he has shown before though—in both his masterful take-downs of Sean Spicer and George Osborne—Isaacs is not one to mince his words, or to back down from a fight. He is a Force For Good on the hostile plains of social media. His vocal activism makes sense considering his background. Isaacs grew up surrounded by antisemitism, once saying:
There were constantly people beating us up or smashing windows. If you were ever, say, on a Jewish holiday, identifiably Jewish, there was lots of violence around. But particularly when I was 16, in 1979, the National Front were really taking hold, there were leaflets at school, and Sieg Heiling and people goose-stepping down the road and coming after us.
So when the sad racist or misogynistic cockwombles of Twitter come for Isaacs, he comes right back.
And Trump? That man should have collapsed by now just from the sheer amount of righteous vitriol Isaacs has Tweeted in his direction. Here are some highlights from his Twitter feed:
Keep wanting to engage trolls, but click their profiles to see endless white isolationist hate-spew. Maybe they follow me as closeted humans— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) September 26, 2017
On behalf of the British police, Londoners and my kids (who get that tube line to school), shut the fuck up. Always. https://t.co/PUBtrT9r9P— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) September 15, 2017
When Sean Spicer tried to score points about Harvey Weinstein being a donor a donor to the Democrats:
When someone called him a ‘creepy fucker’:
You must have been talking to my kids. https://t.co/GuUPtrgrbB— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) October 6, 2017
When someone called Trump a snowflake:
Yes he is. Though if a real snowflake wore that much Agent Orange it would melt as fast as Trump's smile will on his 1st day in jail. https://t.co/yKbnoBJFYt— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) October 6, 2017
When someone told him that no one cares about his politics:
Odd then that those people find themselves reading MY Twitter account, where I can talk about whatever the living fuck I want. People, eh? https://t.co/hFP804mNXS— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) October 2, 2017
When someone tweets racist gibberish at him:
When someone bemoans yet another Trekkie liberal:
Please feel free to binge the finest hours of Hollywood's illiberals for fun. A Chuck Norris/Kid Rock marathon anyone? Lobotomy? https://t.co/Cs4KahtHt1— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) September 26, 2017
When someone expresses dismay at yet another liberal in the entertainment industry:
Lib·er·al adj:— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) September 25, 2017
1. open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values
2. concerned with broadening general knowledge. https://t.co/MU9FOh4BWI

Trump to deliver "deeply philosophical address"?— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) September 19, 2017
"Orange is the new white"

When Armie Hammer went to town on James Woods:
Armie, wait, you want this Twitter war? You'll lose all your rabidly fascist followers AND some people who liked a couple of 70s films. https://t.co/dSrdy1JmEQ— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) September 12, 2017
When someone compared their excitement to going to see The Death Of Stalin to their first Action Man toy and its ‘real gripping hands’:
They didn't grip. He held his hands out in an onanistically receptive pose and you inserted things. But I know where you're coming from. https://t.co/DclSKPj4rv— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) September 8, 2017
Not a man. A bloated, painted, preening, heartless, self-obsessed, cretinous flesh-bag of hate. Not a trace of decency in him. For shame. https://t.co/rhl6Yx4dPN— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) August 13, 2017
