Celebrity Support for Student Walkout Shows Utter Hypocrisy on Guns and More

Actor Hamill is firmly on the side of the Empire establishing and maintaining a monopoly of violence. May the force be with THEM — meaning all the force.

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- “Celebrities Praise Students’ Walkout for Gun Control: ‘This Is Only the Beginning,’” AWR Hawkins of Breitbart notes in a Wednesday report. In true Opposite Day “progressive” fashion, the most privileged and rewarded lottery winners of the “One Percent” are feigning solidarity with ordinary people as they lend their famous names and faces to ensuring an unchallengeable monopoly of violence for those who would rule.

Prominent among them is Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, who achieved “stardom” pretending to lead a band of armed rebel freedom fighters against tyranny —  in exactly the way the Founders envisioned a well regulated militia would be necessary to the security of a free state. Note the padawans weren’t staging any walkouts to demand “commonsense lightsaber safety laws,” and in any case, their function was to learn from their “masters,” not presume to teach those whose knowledge and capabilities they weren’t even qualified to imagine, let alone challenge.

Unlike his movie counterpart Hamill’s chosen the Dark Side. And as for the Constitution? Like his movie father, he’s “altering the deal.”

“Proud of all of you! Never give up! You are THE change!” Miley Cyrus twerked… uh … tweeted. “So amazing to see young people take back their power and USE it!”

That would be the same idol of hysterically screaming girls who stumped for would-be Disarmament Queen Hillary Clinton while surrounded by “huge bodyguards … insane amounts of protection, just in case … it was some seriously Secret Service-ish.”

Naturally, Rosie O’Donnell couldn’t help but seek some kind of attention and relevance. She hasn’t changed positions after declaring “that no one can have a gun in the U.S. If you have a gun, you go to jail. Only the police should have guns,” all the while defending her own employment of armed bodyguards.

No orange shirt this time for Debra…

Predictably, Debra Messing never misses an opportunity to insert herself into a blood dance, either, whether it be by self-serving statements or with an actual “selfie.” Hey, no press is bad press, especially now that her TV series where she tried to look cool with a handgun has been cancelled.

Katy Perry blasted “Congress’ failure to act.” Perhaps she's recalling what her failed marriage and its ceremony in India taught her, that it’s easier for bodyguards to beat the hell out of people who are disarmed by law.

Whoopi Goldberg also supported the walkout for “young lives,” evidently unconcerned about the multiple young lives she aborted (“six or seven by age 25”), which may explain why she ended up taking a gig to do commercials for “incontinence products.” What it doesn’t explain is why it’s OK for her to have a gun.

Samantha Bee presents a special kind of hypocrisy, demanding U.S. laws be changed to be more like those of her native Canada.

“Bee became a US citizen in 2014, while retaining her Canadian citizenship,” her Wikipedia entry reads, not explaining why that’s even allowed considering the State Department maintains “Dual nationals owe allegiance to both the United States and the foreign country.”

Why is it in our interests and how does that “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity” to admit — as voting citizens — people who, contrary to what the State Department claims, take an oath to “absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic…” but then expect our laws to  be like those of the place they left?

We could do this all day, asking “stars” like Chris Evans about claims by a former celebrity bodyguard that he bought cocaine for the “Captain America” actor, especially considering the “gun violence” associated with cartels and drug gang turf wars and their deadly toll on the poorest communities in urban America.  But speaking of money (and that’s what it’s about, isn’t it?), let’s look at two more “stars” who not only offered vocal support for children “educated” by unionized Democrat teachers rewriting the Bill of Rights, but put their money where their mouths are:

George Clooney and his foreign wife Amal donated $500,000 to the “March for Our Lives.” For elites who can afford “to amp up security” at their $15 million mansion and spend $318,000 a year to hire bodyguards for each of their twins, that’s chickenfeed.

Matching Clooney’s donation was Oprah Winfrey. Her stunning hypocrisy in so many things notwithstanding, she also can afford to stump for citizen disarmament when she travels with a security team ready to “whisk” her out of the way at a second’s notice.

Once they’re off script, we’re basically dealing with people not necessarily more talented than those still waiting tables who never got a break. And they live in a bubble of celebrity privilege that comes with ideological expectations if they want to stay on top. Because they’re “world famous,” and because so many “fans” can’t seem to distinguish between heroic, virtuous and cool scripted characters and the stage props who play them, they’re listened to as if they actually possess the qualities they’re paid to pretend they have. That’s despite so many being totally screwed up in real life, as evidenced by the celebrity tabloids screaming about their latest scandals, addictions and broken relationships. So few of them, it seems, can or will control themselves.

How telling these seem to be the ones bent on controlling the rest of us.

I think its time to boycott hollywood. Dont go to the movies.dont buy video games.and dont watch the NFL. None of those people give a rats ass about the constitution that gave them the oportunity to get rich and be the people our kids should not ,but do look up to. Lets take our kids and grand kids outside and teach them the values that made this country great. God GutsAnd Guns. If we boycott these people they will suffer financially and we will gain a better society for our future generations. And with more money in OUR POCKETS because… Read more »

I agree. The first step is cutting the cord to cable or direct tv. The next step is to stop going to the movie theaters to see movies. The next is to unsubscribe from newspapers and magazines. I have done all of the above and am amazed at how much more free time and extra money I have. I view that as a bonus for the main goal of defunding the cultural marxists in hollywood and the media. As an example, I was able to buy a goa life membership for roughly the price of five months of no cable.… Read more »

Yep, yep, yep and yep! The last yep should be “HELL YES” to anyone getting a lifetime GOA membership. But the socio-communists won’t go for it. It’s not free… and they don’t compromise. The Marxists do that for free however, compromise and subvert.

Bloomberg and Soros give money to the teacher unions and they in turn have their members tell the brain dead students to demonstrate. Do these students think their peers will obey gun laws any better than they obey the narcotic and drinking laws? Yeah me neither.

I’ve never watched this Samantha Bee and do not intend to but another example of coming here from another country and trying to change the country into what she likes. Save herself some trouble and move back to Canook country.
As far as the other low I.Q. actors and hypocrites from Hollywierd Commifornia are concerned they are wasting their time and trouble while alienating people that may go see their “entertainment” trash. My time will not be wasted on them because they are lower than whale poo and that is at the bottom of the ocean.

@WB…Not finding your comment about purchasing . If you were referring to the 6.5 , sorry I’m old and set in my ways . I’ll be sticking with my old 3006 , .243 (6mm) and the 5.56 , pretty well pared down all the others .

Where’s the “walk-out” on bridges? After all, they’re designed to collapse and KILL people!

I want the people who think gun free zone signs and unarmed teachers are the right thing to be forced to live the rest of their lives that way as well. They need to take the locks off their houses and the gaurds and gates out of their communities and immediately put up signs saying lock free home and gate and gaurd free community. Their banks, no more vaults or tellers and cameras. Just leave the doors open with the cash in a big pile and put up a theft free zone sign.. honor system, that should work right? I… Read more »

@Repo…You forgot the poor family pet . That poor creature will try to be the faithful family protector and guard dog. It will probably screw things up for the perpetrator and may end up paying the price .

I figure it’s just a matter of time until the Hollywood elite set all pets free and tell everyone ownership of pets is a new form of slavery and the pets should be able to make their own choices.

Do you suppose…
The Florida governor will ban bridges ? Oh wait there may not be any gullible young children for CNN and Soros to exploit .
CNN is actually a dirty work arm of the Soros empire ?
The Democorrupts are up to their old tricks with voting machines ?
That the Repubs will wake up and turn out to vote in the primary, to remove rinos and replace them with as of yet uncorrupted candidates ?

Damn hypocrites who make a living with firearms on screen, but don’t want anyone in the public to have them. Who cares what actors think anyway? It’s not like their opinions are worth a bucket of warm spit.

Samantha Bee is especially a hypocrite because her and her left wing husband have led massive protests and refuse to speak to the media about a plan for minorities to be in the same public school as their kids. They have gone ballistic and are not letting the school board get away with doing what they would to any normal person. Typical racist leftist hypocrites on guns, immigration, and race. Oh, and samantha mocked a cancer patient on her show as being a nazi for his haircut. What a piece of trash samantha and all of these evil cultural marxists… Read more »
