Brilliant, Hollywood!

I am continually baffled by the lack of education there seems to be on the left. Not only that but the apathy that they have for not being educated. To hear the hard-lefties say it, they have it all figured out – conservatives are all racists, homophobes, and biased against the poor. Conservatives don’t ever want to help anyone as evidenced by our aversion to approving endless unemployment and welfare that poses few questions about the person receiving said government handouts. I mean, anyone who doesn’t want to just throw money away to help the poor must be a total hatemonger, right? Anyone who doesn’t like President Obama is a racist; there’s no other excuse. And if you’re black and you don’t worship President Obama, woah! You are a total Uncle Tom!

What’s worse? Their leaders preach from a bully pulpit in Hollywood. In July 2012, actress Ellen Barkin went on a Twitter rampage that began with her saying, “I love everyone, except u right wing f**kin morons.” She later went on to make crass remarks about “how many village idiots” there are in Texas (she must mean the people who a Yale professor discovered were measurably more intelligent than her liberal choir), the Second Amendment never being meant to cover “semi-automatic machine guns” (there’s no such thing as a semi-automatic machine gun…a machine gun is fully automatic, whereas a semi-automatic only fires one round with every single pull of the trigger), strict Constitutionalists are “2 dumb and dangerous” (which, I suppose, is why all of the mass shooters over the past decade have been liberals who hated President Bush), and had the nerve to suggest that we be knocked down and dragged the f**k out.

First of all, if anyone in Hollywood or any of their minions among the unwashed masses really thinks they can knock us down and drag us out, you are welcome to try. Since you have already established that we believe in and exercise our Second Amendment rights and we’re therefore dangerous, I get the feeling even you don’t believe you’d be able to drag us out. Since most of us also did military service, you’d best be served by leaving us alone. How’s that sound?

Second, shut up and sing. I mean, who the hell is Ellen Barkin? Oh, that’s right – she’s the broad who spread her legs for Dennis Quaid in “The Big Easy”. What exactly is your expertise in? You’re the court jester. I don’t wanna hear you talk about how evil I am for not agreeing with you. I don’t even want to hear what your political bent is. I’m not going to waste time and money going to see something with you in it if all you do when you’re not acting is going on a rant about how hateful you think I am.

Third, this is how you sound: “I hate you, you hatemonger! YOU NEED TO BE MORE TOLERANT OR I’LL BEAT IT INTO YOU!!!” Do you ever stop and think before you speak? Where the hell is all this tolerance you say you have? Take a Xanax and calm yourself. I don’t hate you. I certainly don’t like you, but I don’t think you’re worth spending that kind of energy on.

What’s even more mind-boggling is that in the wake of the death of child superstar Shirley Temple, even more hatemongers have come out of the woodwork. Despite there being no other proof than the fact that she was a Republican and served as an ambassador to Ghana under President Nixon in 1974 and later as the ambassador to Czechoslovakia in 1989 under President Bush Sr., an unbelievable number of people have branded her as a racist in death. Twitter lit up with hateful liberals lamenting the fact that she was a Republican. Still more openly hated her for her supposed racism. Not one celebrity has come out to defend her.

These are the people who are supposed to be setting the example. When you lie about another group simply because you do not like them (and let’s face it, kids, when someone asks you what proof there is that all conservatives are racists and all you can come up with is “they just are,” you’re lying to smear them), you are doing the same thing the Nazis did. You cannot point the finger at us and call us hatemongers when you’re the ones spewing the hate.

Oh, and by the way, Ms. Barkin…you weren’t all that hot in that movie. Get over yourself.

Well, Blow Me Over…

Madonna just made me fall out of my chair.

Following the news that has-been Jim Carrey made the very public decision to stop backing his latest film, Kick-Ass 2, superstar Madonna managed something I didn’t think she could: she shocked the hell out of every conservative in America.

She has gone public with her belief that it’s PEOPLE that kill people – not guns.

Carrey Tweeted, “I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence…I’m not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.” So, the shootings at Paducah, Jonesboro, Columbine, Red Lake, Amish Country, Virginia Tech, and Tucson didn’t change your heart before Sandy Hook? It took multiple mass shootings (nearly all in gun-free zones, something you’d think would indicate a trend) before you opened your eyes? That smacks of either willful ignorance or blatant opportunism, I can’t decide which. Besides being openly insulting with his “Cold Dead Hands” schtick (again, I point out the trend that this supposedly brilliant man can’t find right under his nose), now he expects that we’re gullible enough to buy his mea culpa routine? Please.

Don’t count on him giving his salary back to the production studio that made Kick-Ass 2. He won’t do any pressers to promote the film, but you can bet your sweet bippie he got paid for his time.

Carrey’s self-righteous grandstanding doesn’t really surprise me anymore. Madonna, on the other hand, was completely unexpected in her support of Second Amendment rights and the logic behind what we believe. She’s right. A gun isn’t going to sprout legs, walk down the street and kill someone. It doesn’t tell the person who picks it up to drive to the local school and start shooting people. A person – a human being with full control of their own choices and movement – has to make the decision to get the gun, load it, transport it, find their victims and kill them. That takes time, thought, and effort. Often they have to consider whether they’re willing to be taken into custody or if they’d rather kill themselves. A lot goes into these mass events that most liberals don’t stop to think about.

Madonna apparently has a better head on her shoulders than I first thought. I still don’t like her music, but I can certainly give her more credit for being able to think independently and not move with the Hollywood herd.

She is sure to catch flak for this. Carrey is taking some from one of the film’s producers, but that will be where it ends. His career has hit the skids; his most recent roles have been reduced to support (whereas he was once a commanding presence as a leading actor), and the slam-dunk of a sequel to one of his biggest hits, “Dumb and Dumber”, has been cancelled. He has several other films in the works but he is no longer the box office draw that he was.

The hysterical thing about this whole situation? The character he plays, Colonel Stars and Stripes, is a Christian who refuses to fire a gun.

I think I’m gonna go see it on opening day.
