Hollywood’s Hypocrisy on Guns, Drugs, and Breaking the Law

Hollywood, the land of alcohol, drugs, and gun control hypocrisy. There seems to be a steady stream (By steady stream I mean Niagara Falls) of Hollywood stars using their celebrity to push for gun control for the masses. They write Obama love letters, talk about it on talk shows, get on their soap boxes and scream it from the rooftops that guns are killing people and it’s a problem that has to stop. In fact, People magazine just ran an article about one hundred thirteen Hollywood stars that praised President Obama for his new gun control measures and signed a letter in support.

    I like violent movies.
    What bugs me is seeing 110 lb. women fighting 220 lb men and winning, and movies were all the good guys are black/hispanic, etc, and all the bad guys are white, and where the only the bad guys use guns, and the good guys are unarmed ninjas, movies that portray evil capitalists being thwarted by plucky citizens or the state; Movies that are actually liberal propaganda.
    I don’t care if people smoke pot, snort cocaine or drink.
    I like many Stephen King stories.
    That being said, there needs to be a Gamergate/Sad Puppies style movement in Hollywood.

    I wonder if all these “boycott a movie for the political view of one or more of it’s workers” use Windows or Apple computers? If they do, then they are hypocrites, as Linux is free, but, as the they say, “Math is Hard.”

      I can’t see how it is fair that fictional characters in dramas cannot smoke cigarettes but the guys on the real life gold mining shows are shown smoking cigarettes and throwing the butts all over the pristine wilderness.

      • FactsWillOut

        Agreed.
        They should field strip them, FFS.

          The chicks (strong females) getting the better of the KGB / Spetnaz / Secret Service / SWAT / Nazis one at a time or all at once is ridiculous.
          Even most of the man on man fights strain credulity. I’ve been hit (and kicked) in the face and I sure didn’t look like Jason Bourne did after his life & death struggles. Plus the whole series is one anti-gun message after another. I mean what kind of man of mystery leaves a handgun in the safety deposit box.

            Child 44 had some of the best fight scenes ever. My wife had to cover her eyes. Even had a broad in one of them. She got her ass kicked.(Not my wife, the character in the movie)

            I will check it out, thanks.

            I liked it. It seemed a realistic view of how horrible it was to live in early 60’s USSR.

          • pike bishop

            I saw “The Chekist” a while ago and it leaves a mark. This Child 44 looks like the kind of movie I like. I liked the Killing Fields and Salvador, something with some tension.

          • FactsWillOut

            I never saw The Chekist or Salvador, I’ll check them out. Thanks.

          • pike bishop

            The Chekist is not a family show that’s for sure. Salvador stars James Woods and I like him. James Belushi is pretty good too.

          • I wonder if James Woods is going to run for office soon.

            A real conservative non-politician?
            Wouldn’t that be nice?

          • FactsWillOut

            Ha!
            I found The Checkist. It’s on youtube, full movie with eng. subs.
            Yay!
            Thanks, man!

          • pike bishop

            I would say enjoy but it is a bit disturbing.

          • FactsWillOut

            Written by a Russian in 1923, released by Russians just after the fall of the Iron Curtain? I bet it is disturbing.
            Child 44 was not as disturbing as this movie promises to be.
            Thanks again.

            Citizen X with Donald Sutherland is a fictionalized account of the Rostov on Don serial killer. I found it pretty good. In another life I would have liked to have been a Kremlinologist. That revolution, cold war, British traitors, honey traps, Berlin wall, gulags and stealing and flying a MiG to Japan stuff really fascinates me.

    This is the same Hollywood that sold itself to communist China. They won’t put anything negative about the thugs that run China in movies because they make lots of money there. They show the commies as heroic figures in some films. And now the Chinese have paid a billion dollars for a Hollywood studio.

    • UCSPanther

      A good example: In the book “World War Z”, the first chapters tell of the zombie plague’s origin in China and how it spreads through both human trafficking and China’s sale of organs from political prisoners. The movie adaptation of that book drops that part.

      Money talks in Hollywood. The Chinese have certainly proved that.

    The Greatful Eight is bombing at the box office.

  • If you want to hit celebrities where they live, pay them only if their movies are good.

    That’s all they understand.

    I can’t wait to see 13 Hours, maybe some truth about Benghazi will come out.

        Worst. Porn flick. Ever.

    • Justin St.Denis

      How much truth can the film reveal when the words “Hillary Clinton” and ” the Secretary of State” are never used in the script?

  • roccolore

    And who better to praise the anti-gun hypocrites than Hollyweirdos with armed guards.

    • Sneering Cyril

      Ha ha ha, you should start you’re own blog. I would read it everyday.

    Hollywood is really so over. It just doesn’t produce what people want to see anymore, and many are sick of the “messaging”, most of which is about as subtle as a flying mallet. The “general public” may indeed be not that bright, but it isn’t stupid or moronic. Hollywood is stupid and moronic.
