Exposing the hypocrisy of the Hollywood elites on gun control

January 2, 2013

 Some of the elite Hollywood actors and actresses have come together in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre and are demanding more gun control laws. They have released a video called ‘Demand a Plan’ and in this video they are calling for Americans to call upon their legislators and demand more gun control legislation–willfully ignoring the role their movies might play in the culture of violence.

  In this video–which I found at Conservative Hideout–the ‘Demand a Plan’ video has been edited to include clips of these very same actors in some of the roles they have played in the movies.  While I don’t really have a problem with violence in movies this highlights the hypocrisy of those in Hollywood who are pushing for gun control legislation.

      After all, B, aren’t they much more intelligent than the average person on the street? For what reason we should be listening to them as being “informed and more knowledgeable” is beyond me. I don’t care what parts they play in movies, violence sells. What I do care about is them trying to tell ME what I can and can not do, guess that is where I draw the line. They have no power or position to try and pull that, but there will be people that listen to them. Idiots!

    I find it somewhat amazing that in this age of the global economy these movies and video games which are being demonized as the cause of gun violence aren’t being permitted outside our borders. How else to explain the fact that the level of gun violence in other advanced countries doesn’t approach ours?

    As to the claim that firearms are necessary to give the people the opportunity to overthrow a dictatorial government, that became obsolete with the ever-increasing sophistication of military-grade weapons. No “civilian militia” is going to march on Washington with shoulder weapons and pitchforks and effect an overthrow of a tyrannical government. And the firearms rights advocates don’t seem to mind the prohibition on machine guns, missile launchers and hand grenades.

      Tell that to the Syrian rebels! Yes many of the guns had to come from outside the country, because the common man was unarmed to begin with. If a new american revolution should come it will begin in the rural areas and there will be no immediate march on Washington—and I would expect many in the military would join the rebels with weapons in hand. No a deer rifle won’t over-thrown a tyranical government, but 30 million armed citizens could very easily cause its downfall.

      I wasn’t demonizing the movies or the video games, I just said they might be a part of the problem. You probably noticed that I said I didn’t have a problem with the movies but I think it is possible that some people with other problems might not see the difference between entertainment and reality. I was simply pointing out the hypocrisy of actors who make tons of money portraying violence then coming out calling for gun control laws on law abiding citizens.

        One thing we have to do for certain Steve, is have someone make up our minds for us. Which is it, demonize violent games, movies, and tv programs, or not? Here’s my issue. No one seems to want to accept the fact that kids (and adults) see violence such as in the video above everywhere. We’re bombarded with it, and millions of kids are playing these games hours and hours and on end. Much of it is extreme. But the shrinks don’t seem to want to label these as the, or any part of the problem. However, when it comes to girls seeing uber thin models, merely in tv commercials, and the occasional cat walk shows, according to all the shrinks, it has a *heavy* influence on how girls see themselves, and causes them to have mental issues, enough for them to starve themselves to death. Can’t have it both ways, either what we see is influencing people, or it isn’t.

        I think it is part of the problem but not the entire problem, I wrote a post on this here in which I talk about everything I think might contribute to the problem. The thing is that I am against banning violent movies and video game simply because some people can’t see the difference between reality and entertainment.

    Great point! Hypocrisy abounds on so many of their fronts. I just wrote about another one of their hypocrites today.
