With all the news about gun violence, mass shootings, gun control legislation and on and on, many groups from both sides have come out to show their support for their particular cause. The one I think shows utter and absolute hypocrisy in their stand is the entertainment industry,
I think it is incredibly hypocritical to stand up and push gun control and assault weapons bans and then go around pounding your chest in self-righteous indignation about how guns breed violence, “you don’t deserve to be able to arm yourself”, “you shouldn’t have the right to protect your family”. “I’m a movie star, I know better than you what’s best for you” then turn around and make millions of dollars from movies that show extreme, graphic violence using every kind of firearm imaginable.
These same stars don’t hesitate for a second to hire ARMED guards to protect themselves and their family but tell us we shouldn’t be allowed the same protection.
And where is the administration on all this, all the violence in movies and on TV? Other than a casual mention about movie violence the administration is pretty mum on the subject. Why? you might ask? Again, the answer is simple. Mr. Obama got a huge amount of support from the entertainment industry. They look at him through “rose colored glasses”. They funneled a lot of financial support to his reelection campaign and he definitely doesn’t want to bite the hand that feeds him.
So, while everyone else is having the finger pointed at them, the entertainment industry goes merrily on it’s way, making billions of dollars off of guns and violence with a “wink and a nod” from the administration.
How long do you think it’s going to be before a movie about Sandy Hook will be released? I’ll bet it won’t be long. There’ money to be made!
Hypocrisy’s finest hour!
