I would like to add a #3 which would be a celebrity who campaigns against guns while they profit from making movies that glorifies them. Check out the video at the end of the article.
This morning, a friend and I had a light discussion on what is enabling the monsters to commit mass murder. The media, liberal leftists, and celebrities would like to make you think it’s guns. Laughable and predictable.
I am firmly convinced now that liberals are the ultimate shuckers of personal responsibility. Blame Bush, blame guns, blame, blame, blame. My least favorite hated quote came just yesterday from the NY Times where the writer blamed Bush’s tax cuts for the state of the current economy. WTF??? That is the tool comment of the decade. I know I’m on a tangent here but this is the larger problem of the democrats and liberal progressives. It’s all about spending and taxing. Admittedly, far too many Republicans are now subscribing to this taxing and spending so they are far from being off the hook. I recently left the Republican party because they have clearly lost their way and refuse to hold their ground on taxing and spending. The democrats are shameless about taxing and spending so why should we be shameless about doing exactly the opposite?
Back to the point. Hypocrites and enabling mass murderers. Banning guns isn’t going to happen. Not now and hopefully not ever. This “feel good” approach to solving a problem the media feeds creates by faulting the victim and praising the perpetrator by giving them their 15 minutes of fame is a perfect recipe for those psychopaths to get exactly what they want as they bow out in their blaze of glory.
Then we (govt) starts the foot race to take credit and vow to legislate that this never happen again. Good luck. You can’t legislate away evil.
And for the hypocrite celebrities, Shut the F up. I think of how many of these actors have portrayed bad guys. Maybe some giving real bad guys meaning and purpose.
And without further commentary, I present a video of celebrities for your viewing enjoyment.
