Celebrities call for gun control in wake of Vegas shooting

celebrities and gun control

All these tweets came before all the details of the shooting, including weapons used, was even known. But they must push their gun control narrative.

Until these fools name a specific gun control law that isn’t on the books already (such as the Hughes Amendment) that would have prevented this shooting, I’m going to assume they are speaking out of their butts.

From Yahoo: In the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history — a gunman firing on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday and killing at least 58 people — celebrities are among the many fed-up Americans calling for better gun control laws.

Lady Gaga was one of the many to speak out on social media on Monday, declaring suspected gunman Stephen Paddock’s shooting spree an act of “terrorism, plain and simple” and asking “Democrats and Republicans” to “unite now” on gun control.

In one post, she called out President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan directly, saying that “blood is on the hands of those who have the power to legislate.”

The singer also announced she’ll be holding a 20-minute “meditation/silence/prayer” later today on Instagram to provide some peace amid the chaos of the world.

Ariana Grande, whose Manchester, England, concert venue was the scene of another horrific mass shooting just months ago, also shared her thoughts. “My heart is breaking for Las Vegas,” wrote the singer. “We need love, unity, peace, gun control & for people to look at this & call this what it is = terrorism.”

Julianne Moore has long been an outspoken advocate for gun violence awareness and she spoke out again today. “Today we mourn for Las Vegas, tomorrow we fight for them,” she wrote, while encouraging “everyone join the movement to end gun violence.”

Emmy Rossum, who described herself as “heartbroken” over the news, took to Twitter to tell her followers that prayers aren’t enough. She also demanded action from politicians and urged people to do the same. “I believe in prayer, but it’s not enough by itself,” she noted in one of several tweets on the topic. “We need better LAWS. In no world does a CIVILIAN need a MACHINE GUN. Let’s fix this.”

Jessica Chastain described it as “shameful that this keeps happening.”

Billy Eichner of Billy on the Street fame wasn’t mincing words either. He tweeted, “GUN CONTROL NOW. ENOUGH ALREADY. GROW THE FUCK UP. THE AVERAGE PERSON DOESN’T NEED A FUCKING MACHINE GUN. ENOUGH ALREADY. ENOUGH. ENOUGH.”

He also tweeted, “AND DON’T TALK ABOUT THE 2ND AMENDMFNT. THEY WEREN’T TALKING ABOUT AUTOMATIC WEAPONS & ANYONE WHO SAYS THAT NONSENSE IS ENABLING MASS MURDER.”

Where were you when black racists & antifa terrorists assault whites & conservatives?

Last weekend, a planned “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest the removal of Confederate monuments from public spaces, descended into violence when white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters, forcing the city to declare a state of emergency.

A white man named James Alex Fields Jr., who has schizophrenia and is on anti-psychotic medication, rammed his car into a group of counter-demonstrators, killing a liberal, Heather Heyer, and injuring others. Fields is in police custody and has been charged with second-degree murder.

Politicians from across the political spectrum have expressed outrage, condemning the “white supremacist” rally, and criticized President Trump for his initial response to the violence which did not label the incident as an act of terrorism, nor explicitly denounced the “white supremacists”.

This morning, speaking from the White House, President Trump condemned the Charlottesville violence, saying:

“Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the [Ku Klux Klan], neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

That wasn’t good enough for former VPOS Joe Biden (D). Biden took issue with President Trump saying there was a “display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” Biden tweeted:

“There is only one side.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), who had run as a Democrat in the presidential primaries last year, tweeted:

“The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society.”

Sen. Chuck Shumer (D-NY) tweeted:

“March & rally in Charlottesville against everything the flag stands for. President Trump must condemn in strongest terms immediately.”

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) tweeted:

“The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant. Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.”

In a statement, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said “neo-Nazis” and white supremacist groups “are, by definition, opposed to American patriotism and the ideals that define us as a people and make our nation special.”

In a Facebook post, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wrote:

“The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred that they propagate. Having watched the horrifying video of the car deliberately crashing into a crowd of protesters, I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) tweeted:

“Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists.”

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the lone black Republican in the Senate, called the attack “domestic terror” and urged that it be “condemned” because “Otherwise hate is simply emboldened.”

Ronna McDaniel, the GOP chairwoman, tweeted:

“The hate & bigotry on display in is dangerous & cowardly.”

Female House Democrats defy patriarchy with sleeveless Friday

With all the problems in America and the world, female Democrats in the House of Representatives showed their defiance of the oppressive patriarchy by baring their arms yesterday, declaring Fridays henceforth to be sleeveless.

The U.S. House of Representatives has a dress code for House chambers of suit-and-tie for men and sleeves and no open-toed shoes for women.

Some of the female representatives tweeted their decisive blow against male patriarchy:

Hank Berrien reports for The Daily Wire, July 14, 2017:

The brouhaha over the dress code was triggered when Weekly Standard reporter Jenna Lifhits tried to use paper from her notebook as a way to cover up her shoulders, but was refused entrance to the House chambers. Independent Journal Review reporter Haley Byrd was ejected from the Speaker’s lobby for wearing a sleeveless dress.

On Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan indicated he would ask the sergeant-at-arms to modernize the dress code that also includes requiring men to wear a suit and tie in both the Speaker’s lobby and House chamber.

The celebration over the defiant escape to freedom from the patriarchy now will be etched in history alongside other historic moments such as the 1963 Martin Luther King-led March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Next on the Democrat women’s agenda:

Hairy Armpit Friday!

Because shaving women’s armpits is submission to the oppressive male patriarchy.

‘We all hate you’: Eighth graders on field trip to DC refuse to pose with Paul Ryan

paul ryan with kids

This is what “civil discourse” and “political engagement” passes for this day. The teachers and parents of these children are so proud. Course they are just following in the footsteps of demorat leaders. Stay classy kids!

From Daily Mail: A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday.

Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol.

When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints‘Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,’ said one.

Another spoke to DailyMail.com to explain his decision to not take part. ‘The fact that he puts his party before his country, he likes to think of what his party will think of him other than what his country will think of him,’ Matthew Malespina, 13 said. Ryan’s Republican stance on healthcare, education and LGBT rights were among the things Matthew disagreed with.

The school has not commented on their protest but Matthew’s mother said it gave all students the option to take part or not.  ‘The school allowed the children to make a choice, they were very good about that. It was all quite peaceful,’ she said.

The children were taking part in a field trip to DC when they were told on Wednesday that they would be meeting Ryan.

Matthew texted his mother immediately to tell her that he was concerned and she urged him to let the teachers know he was uncomfortable with it.

When Ryan emerged from the Capitol on Thursday, some students who had agreed to take part were gathered on the steps to have their photograph taken. The others were stood across the street and Ryan was unaware that they had refused.

On Friday, he uploaded the photograph with the willing students to Instagram, writing alongside it: ‘Got that #FridayFeeling’.

The students pounced, pointing out in the comments section that half did not want to be associated with him and accusing him of merely using them as a photo-opp.

‘I find this really funny because this is my school and more than half of us chose to step out of that picture. And to add, the school is from a very liberal town, so I’m very proud to say that I was amongst the students who stood ACROSS the street.

‘Plus most of the kids who were standing there were only there to make fun of him because he’s a walking talking meme, ‘said one.

They were met with comments from Republican supporters who accused them of being disrespectful to the office of the Speaker of the House.

Matthew’s mother Elissa supported his decision, telling DailyMail.com she was proud of him and the rest of the children for standing up for what they believe in.  ‘We’ve always talked about politics so we’ve always been a family that has been politically active. We didn’t indoctrinate him, he has had a mind of his own ever since he was a small child and he’s gathered up his own views. We are lucky to live in a community with a large number of active and engaged young people.’

FYI: From the South Orange Middle School web site (not sure of the exact date):

South Orange Middle School celebrated its second schoolwide “Winter Blast of Kindness” Day last week — and the entire school felt like one big celebration. The event was filled with scores of activities for students and staff that emphasized the importance of being kind to one another, family members and teachers.

Launched last year by health teacher Allison Cahill and social worker Allison Steiner (who were joined this year by PE teacher Jackie Gronek) the idea stemmed from a desire to respond to the issue of bullying by creating a climate of kindness throughout the school.”

At least these children have mastered the proggies’ technique of being a hypocrite.

Hollywood director demeans teenage cancer-survivors’ looks to take shot at Republicans

joss-whedon

You own this piece of scum libtards.

From Washington Times: Hollywood producer-director Joss Whedon judged a group of teenage cancer survivors according to their (lack of) sexual attractiveness in order to take a shot at Republicans.

Mr. Whedon tweeted out a picture of House Speaker Paul D. Ryan meeting some teenagers and said they didn’t measure up in the attractiveness department.

“Tonight on White House Wife Hunt, Donny makes host P. Ryan give 2 more contestants the ‘Not a 10’ card,” tweeted Mr. Whedon, best known as the creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and other TV shows and as the director of two “Avengers” movies.

According to Mr. Ryan, who had tweeted out the same picture, the girls were Wisconsin teenagers who “shared some powerful stories with me about their fight against childhood cancer.”

Numerous users on Twitter quickly pounced on Mr. Whedon’s remarks about the girls’ looks, calling them cruel, sexist and more. “The epitome of misogyny right here. Take a bow, bro,: said female Twitter user “Grace Under Pressure.”

Read the rest of the story here.

Joss has since deleted the tweet and offered some lame “apology:” “So I tweeted something that inadvertently offended everyone except the people I was trying to offend. I’m sorry. I’ll be quiet for a bit.”

What a deplorable man.

‘Taylor f*****g Swift… may as well have voted for Trump’: Actress Lola Kirke slams the singer for not using her fame and global platform to discuss politics

Actress – and bully – Lola Kirke

From Daily Mail: Actress Lola Kirke has hit out at Taylor Swift – claiming that the pop star’s silence on politics is tantamount to voting for President Donald Trump.

The 26-year-old, who is also a musician, has been vocal in her support for causes such as Planned Parenthood and the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline and wore a ‘f**k Paul Ryan’ badge to the Golden Globes.

The British-born American told Vogue.com that during turbulent political times, global stars such as Swift, 27, should speak out for grassroots movements. Since the election, Swift has remained relatively silent on the issue of politics – sparking speculation over her political affiliation.

Kirke, who is the sister of Girls star Jemima, said: ‘For me, it’s really important to elevate voices and causes that don’t get as much attention with whatever attention I get. I totally understand why some people won’t do that. I definitely think that there are certain celebrities who really could offer more help to grassroots movements with their power – and don’t.’

She added: ‘Like Taylor f*****g Swift, who may as well have voted for Trump, as far as I’m concerned, by not doing anything.’

Kirke, whose latest film Gemini recently had its world premier at SXSW, said the notion of selfie-obsessed celebrity is ‘confusing and weird’.  Despite labeling it ‘vapid’, she said social media can be used for good. ‘You can imbue everything you’re doing with meaning. I believe that life is meaningful and I believe there are things that are important that are not getting the attention that they deserve,’ she said.

Listing issues that she believes are currently under threat or in need of attention, she said the environment, reproductive rights and human rights which she said ‘are in jeopardy’.  She said she does not want to contribute to the ‘smokescreen’ that encourages people to think that those issues do not exist.
