'Newtown School Shootings: Celebrities Plumbers demand gun control'
"Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation? No, too late," tweeted "Bowling for Columbine" director Michael Moore."At least THIRTY-ONE school shootings since Columbine."
"The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental healthcare, and an end to violence as public policy," he added
Please reference previous article at this blog. Obviously few will disagree, we have serious violent crime problems in this country. And not one person is so void of insensitivity to be immune from mournful emotional reaction for the victims of this violence. But someone please tell me why we should give a 'rats ass' what Michael Moore, or any other so called celebrity, has to opine on this or any other violent crime in this nation.
If if were not for the garbage they consider art and entertainment flowing out of Hollywood, perhaps there might be a completely different mental attitude in America. They celebrate their own accomplisments in churning out this crap they now label as 'family entertainment.' They bore us regularly by littering television time with entertainment world awards programs, showering themselves with praise and accolades, recognizing the brilliance in their trade, for producing some of the most intolerable and vile motion pictures, exhibition of which would normally be reserved for sleaze movie houses.
So please Michael Moore, or any other wanna-be celebrity and politicians, spare us your crocodile tears and emotional pleas, in the name of stripping NORMAL Americans of what rights and freedoms they have remaining, all in the name of decency. For as we have already stated, you people (celebrities and politicians) are totally devoid of that characteristic.
Just for the record. My plumber Dean is not demanding gun control, however being the father of five children, there is no doubt he is grieving alongside millions of other broken-hearted Americans, regardless of whether they are parents, following this horrible tragedy in that Connecticut community of Newtown.
Probably Dean is also not calling for legislation to restrict Hollywood fare, but you will never see his picture circulating around news coverage of similar shooting tragedies, such as the one which happened in a Colorado theater during the presentation of a movie entitled 'The Joker.'
Dean the plumber's opinion following that tragedy, would have been about as relevant as your words now--Michael Moore the movie director.
