Letters from the Lunar Outpost

The virtues are lost in self-interest as rivers are lost in the sea.
- La Rochefoucauld, French Classical Writer (1613-1680)

Consider this fact:

It is estimated that by the time an average child leaves elementary school, he or she will have witnessed 8,000 murders and over 100,000 other acts of violence. By the time that child is 18 years-of-age; he or she will witness 200,000 acts of violence, including 40,000 murders.

Think about that, by the age of 12, the average American child has witnessed 8,000 acts of murder on television alone.

Even if you were some sort of diabolical dictator whose goal was desensitize your entire nation towards murder and the killing of your fellow human beings, you could not even plan a much more effective program of brainwashing and desensitizing your nation’s children than this.

That’s what Hollywood brings us: 8,000 murders witnessed by the average 12-year-old child. That doesn’t even include the movies America’s children are watching away from the television.

So when some jackass like Jim Carrey tweets this:

and then posts a song less funny than his latest box office bomb, a song that portrays anyone who supports the Second Amendment as a bunch of dumb redneck yokels, it’s really disgusting to see just how detached from reality these Hollywood-types become, living in their mansions with armed bodyguards and surrounding themselves with like-minded limousine liberals. Not only are you completely out of touch, but you’re insulting half the people who bought tickets to your crappy movies and made you half of all those millions in your bank account. Nice career move.

First off, you’re a Canadian, so shut your Canadian pie-hole and stop making bigoted portrayals of the good people of the Red States and Red State-minded Americans everywhere.

Second off, if you think you’re smarter than America’s founding fathers, you’re even more of an idiot than the characters you portray on movie screens.

Most importantly however, if you, in your Canadian wisdom, want to go attacking America and it’s Constitution, why don’t we start at the top of the list, with the First Amendment.

Jim Carrey Has Blood on His Hands

You and all of your gun-grabbing Hollywood friends have blood on your hands for glorifying crime, guns and violence.

For the mental defectives who go off on killing sprees, where do you think they got that idea? Who do you think planted that seed in their feeble little brains? Do you think having witnessed 8,000 murders on TV by the age of 12 might have helped soak their spongy little brains?

How bad is Hollywood’s glorification of violence? Consider the fact that, in one of the sickest ironies of all time, the audience in Aurora watched a trailer of the movie Gangster Squad showing a scene where the gangsters gunned down an audience in a movie theater, just before they got gunned down themselves.

You want to portray gun violence as a bunch of rednecks clinging to their guns? Look at Chicago, you ignorant fool. Toughest gun laws in the nation and yet every month there’s a death toll higher than any of the yearly handful of spree shootings in America. Do you really think the gangsters do anything other than laugh at your attempts to strip law-abiding citizens of their right to bear arms?

You want to do something that could have a real effect on gun violence in America, stop trying to grab guns from law-abiding citizens and take a look at the blood you and the culture of Hollywood have on your own hands.

9 Responses to Hollywood Has More Blood on Its Hands Than Any Single Shooter

  • Thanks for this write-up Mike. I refuse to support the Hollywood bunch.

    • I’m with you, Suzanne. If he thinks that Burt Wonderlick movie bombed, wait til he sees how many people stay at home for his next movie.

  • Excellent article as always keep up the great work .

  • Jim Carrey is typical of what the left develops: less than mediocrity. They are easy to manipulate and they aim to please their Marxist masters like drooling mutts. Really, folks, if you weren’t high watching a Jim Carrey movie, would it have been funny? There is no talent in Hollywood any longer. Only what we’ve been conditioned to believe is talent. Marketing has become a propaganda tool. The messaging is controlling your mind. It’s coming in the form of entertainment. Stay away from Hollywood productions.

    • They surround themselves with like-minded people, it’s like a cult. This goes a way back, but there’s the story of a New York Times film critic, Pauline Kael, who said, “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.”

      And they like it like that. They don’t want their ideas challenged, they don’t like an open debate, they seek to surround themselves with people who think just like they do. How boring and yet, how utterly scary at the same time.

      • Mike, you know what I see? A species that’s run its course. No humility anymore. Everyone has a god complex. Man has to be free to survive but there are those vain and aspiring men our forefathers predicted that will surely ruin it for the rest of us. God bless…..

        • Just in seeing the Internet generation come of age all around us, I agree wholeheartedly. With the rise of social media everyone imagines they’re some sort of rock star our movie star just by posting on Facebook. No longer do people think that a person is what they make of themselves, people think they’re special as some sort of birthright.

          We can see it with our own eyes, but this new generation of deluded narcissists is well-documented among the experts, too:
