(NaturalNews) It's really no surprise that most Hollywood stars are radical leftist sycophants who support uber-liberal politicians, since both species of humans are among the most hypocritical beings on the planet.
Nowhere is this more perfectly demonstrated than in a newly produced video that superimposes A-list stars who are stumping for more gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings with extremely violent movie scenes they have made where they are using - you guessed it - firearms.
One by one the stars name off a litany of recent shootings and massacres - Columbine (school), Virginia Tech (school), Tucson (shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords), Aurora (theater shooting), Fort Hood (by suspected Muslim terrorist and U.S. Army psychologist Maj. Nadal M. Hasan), Oak Creek (Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek, Mich.) and the most recent shootings at Newtown, Conn. (school), which was mentioned over and over again by several stars.
But the hypocrisy doesn't stop there.
'How many more' times will Americans endure the A-list duplicity?
After each tragedy is named, many of the same stars are shown again, asking repeatedly, "How many more?", "How many more colleges?", "How many more classrooms?" and "How many more movie theaters?" - with the producers, once again, following each subsequent question with clips of those same stars engaging in onscreen violence with firearms, or enjoying real-life, personal use of a gun (including one female star shooting a jar with a shotgun, then saying, "I can see why people like this...").
Next the stars in the video start demanding, "No more," all the while they are continually being superimposed with firearms-related movie violence of the kind they are allegedly outraged about. As the carnage continues, the stars begin imploring viewers to "Demand a Plan" as a parent, as a friend, "as a husband," "as a wife," and finally, "as an American" and, per Chris Rock, "as a human being."
No more excuses, they implore. No more waiting. No more "lists of names" or talking about what might have happened "if we had just done something yesterday."
Bang! Pow! Brrrrrrup! Boom!
Then, of course, the whole point of the Public Service Announcement becomes clear: We need to ban guns
"It's time for our leaders to act," says one. "Demand a Plan," says another. "Right now."
The video then uses some choice, graphic language to call out these Hollywood hypocrites, correctly labeling the entire movie-making industry a "culture of violence" and essentially telling them where they can stick their double-standards.
The video might be a little callous and raw in its language but the message is pitch-perfect: It's time to tell Hollywood stars their hypocrisy indeed does have limits, and they have reached it with this gun control nonsense.
Not only are these people wealthy enough to be able to afford their own armed protection, but many of them carry or possess their own armed protection (which our Constitution gives them a right to do, along with the rest of us).
Note to Hollywood: You're part of the problem
They live in gated communities that are protected with armed guards. They have world-class security systems and build or buy homes in well-protected parts of cities.
They have that luxury. They have earned that luxury by making products (movies) that sell.
But what about the 99.99 percent of us who will never reach stardom? What are we supposed to do, Jamie Foxx? Olivia Munn? Reese Witherspoon? Steve Carey? Beyonce?
Well, we "Demand a Plan" too, and it includes getting out of the way of our right to keep and bear arms.
Just as the entertainment industry clings to its precious right to freedom of expression, even if that expression is the epitome of hypocrisy, gun owners and gun-rights supporters demand equal recognition under the law.
Mass murders involving the use of a firearm are horrific and often senseless (as well as unexplainable).
But if Hollywood stars who make millions glorifying the use of guns think they have no role whatsoever in the very culture of violence they now decry, they need to wake up and smell what they're shoveling.
