Hypocrisy is disgusting. I think we would all agree that people should seek to live up to their professed ideals, and, while none of us are perfect, we want to at least see some effort to live up to those ideals.
But, it seems, anti-gunners don’t have any interest in living with integrity, at least not those in Hollywood. See, like the very definition of hypocrisy, Hollywood anti-gunners say one thing and, then, do something completely different [hat tip to here for the lead]. Christian Toto gives writes,
Hollywood declared war on American gun culture in 2013 with a public service announcement calling for stricter gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Now the industry is back on the attack in the wake of the Feb. 14 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Stars including Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and the cast of ABC’s “Modern Family” support this month’s March for Our Lives rally for stricter gun legislation.
Yet a study by the Parents Television Council shows that portrayals of gun violence on television have increased dramatically in recent years, even in shows deemed appropriate for children.
The entertainment industry’s love of gunplay and hatred for firearms muddles, if not negates, Hollywood’s role in a constructive conversation on the Second Amendment.
It’s utterly appalling what these baffoons keep doing. The seem to have come to the conclusion that the fact that they are in front of a camera somehow gives them some kind of deep insight into human nature and how to solve the world’s problems (the very same delusion that they often blame Donald Trump of suffering from).
Yet, the fact of the matter is that these ignorant people keep calling for gun control instead of actually analyzing why gun violence happens and why it happens more often in some areas than others (gun free zones, anyone?).
These hypocrites need to get down from their soapboxes and actually learn about what they are talking about before they talk about it. Instead, almost everything that we get from Hollywood about gun violence is ignorant people demanding stupid “solutions” which only make situations worse.
A lot of this marching and megaphones in front of a camera is just that, that’s the object of many
Of the gun grabbers, they honestly do not care becuse if they really did cre they would be trying to
Find the reason these killings happen. Could gun free ones he nything to do with it. Why is there such a huge difference in murders in cities where gun control is at its height compared to cities
That allow guns and allow concealed carry permits. Do they ever stop to wonder why there is such
A difference? Obviously not, that leads me to believe the noise they are making is mainly for the
Camera. Of course when you’re paid by someone like George Soros the you really don’t care, as
Long as the check comes in. Down deep they know why they are doing. These kids will soon forget
About gun control when they are trying to make a living in the real world. Of course those in power because they want more power and it’s tough to rule someone if they are armed, especially if the rule is illegitimate.
you forgot to mention the ARMED guards that protect the hollywood elite 24/7
This activist is an idiot in my opinion. The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms and was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights. If this is taken away from the people, we the people will be stripped of our constitutional rights this countries INDEPENDENCE was founded on. It would be telling us as the people, our forefathers fought and died for nothing. That would be a tragedy to the people
I tend not to put too much credit in the views of people whose idea of “work” is to dress up and play make believe. Actors and entertainers all fall into this category and should be treated as the intellectually stunted individuals they are.
If America would go back to whipping their kids with a apple tree switch. there would be no gun violence. simply put lock your guns Up from your kids there would have no gun violence. simple! get tough with love. And there will be no gun violence.
They seem to ignore the true facts,about gun control. It has been implemented in cities like Chicago and entire nations,such as the Honduras. These adopted gun controlled areas have a higher homicide rate than those that permit carrying. The “field testing”has shown the true facts,even at a national level,yet they are unable and unwilling,to accept the truth,that lies before them.
What I want to know, is why hasn’t anybody put this back on them. We should be demanding that play actors stop using guns to make money, and start holding them responsible for glorifying the misuse of firearms.
Hollywood or the “entertainment industry” has been waging a psych-ops program on the America public for generations. In the specific case of the 2A the “entertainment industry” follows the “Hegelian dialectic” where thesis v. antithesis provides synthesis. This model often attributed to Georg Wilhelm Hegel is a process where a problem is often created or perpetuated to bring about the solution. The “entertainment industry” promotes gun violence to erode the 2A et cetera and the destructive multi-million dollar industry should be called on these facts.
Actors are very good it pretending, that’s what makes them good Actors! So now you know, most of them have to pretend to have a brain.
Without the Second Amendment, the rest of the Constitution would be null and void. Much of the Constitution has already been trashed by Congressional Acts and Presidential Executive Orders. The creation of multiple “Agencies” to rule over us has been a major contributor to the demise of freedom.
We’ve allowed the government to turn our “right” under the Constitution into a “privilege” by the requirement of a license to “keep and bear”. As many times as I have read the Second Amendment, I have yet to see the word “except” or the word “unless” after the word “infringed”.
It’s the popular culture clique, guys-what else would expect from them? They are leftists and will always be so-therefor, stop complaining and accept them for what they are-the scum of the earth.
Take all their bodyguards guns away first! Then law enforcement. Then talk to us.
We refer to them as “hypocrites” due to an excess of politeness, saltier language, while appropriate possibly being to harsh for sensitive souls
I agree totally. It’s so hypocritical to complain about violence and maniacal actions with guns, but star in and/or participate in an industry that REGULARLY glorifies those very actions… which makes them wealthy and famous !!!!
We need to address mental illness. THAT is the problem Guns are just a tool.
