Video: The Hypocrisy of Celebrities' 'Demand a Plan' PSA

(Originally titled: Video - Demand Celebrities Go F*ck Themselves, Extended Cut)

http://youtu.be/k1SZurGArxE

Based on this PSA:
https://www.youtube.com/w...

The video speaks for itself. Hollywood is a culture of violence. This is part of mass brain washing along with the media garble every day if you bother listening, and violent video games. Surely life is about more than VIOLENCE. This brew of violence also creates a culture of FEAR, and we know who that ultimately serves; those who want to rule us...

All of these pompous, pious hypocrites in Hollywood:

Either have their own firearms to defend themselves, or have body guards. (Others have already pointed out the hypocrisy of violence-glorifying movies that include shoot-'em up scenes, but it still merits mention again)

The Television and movie actors in this country seem to think they are another branch of the government.

The Second Amendment is not just for the Four (Three) Branches of government, actors and actresses. (IF you want to act like a branch of government, we will be happy to call you out on it)

Kinda makes you wonder

If they themselves don't want to have weapons but have no problem with employing armed guards which they can obviously afford but the average American cannot, isn't this just another case of the wealthy attempting to monopolize an idea, this time the idea of personal defense through use of firearms?

Did one of those assclowns seriously list Fort Hood?

Yeah, let's work to keep the assault rifles (not assault weapons) out of Fort Hood and other US military compounds.

No, seriously, our military is one of the world's biggest issues right now.

...

I'm not sure what to make of this video...

So many of those clips were taken out of context, many of them were probably intended to be satirical towards the use of guns.

Am I to understand that any depiction of gun violence is an endorsement of gun violence? Or are we going to play the game that violence in popular culture is to blame for anyone hurting anyone else?

Artists, and musicians have been long blamed for the actions of others, and I would be really disappointed in the liberty movement if we were to jump on this bandwagon. There are no "dangerous ideas" which require suppressing, just as there is no legitimate reason to blame an artists depiction of violence for real violence caused by another guilty individual.

Those of us in support of the second amendment (of which I am one), need to understand that there is room for many different opinions. You can be for the just use of force as a means of self defense from tyranny or personal danger and still not run around stroking your gun. You don't even have to own one, which I do not. I think we loose the argument when we react in 180 degrees of our brainwashed counterparts....

Propaganda: Guns are the Problem
Us: Guns are the solution - lets put a stack of guns on every street corner...

Obviously people are to blame for violence not the object used to carry it out. But this macho bullshit really needs to go, because we don't believe in the use of force. A gun is not a muscle you can flex and it should only be used when absolutely necessary - WHEN ITS USED TO DEFEND AND PRESERVE LIFE AND LIBERTY.

Stick to the real issues:

Doctor Prescribed Drugs pushing people to the edge.

A culture of violence, force and intervention handed down from Washington D.C.

Massive Ignorance on the part of the American people...

Satire or not

it shows that most of these celebrities made money glorifying guns and are now calling to ban those guns for the general population... its hypocrisy.

To be clear...

Think of it this way:

One country should not have the power to say to all the others that they can't have nuclear weapons... Especially if that country possess hundreds of them! The monopoly of force is a problem and can lead to great injustice and violence.

But that's not to say that the solution is to constantly produce more nuclear weapons, right? Its a logical fallacy to think there are only two sides to this argument. Human beings should be building productive things, not destructive things. Sure its necessary to defend one self, and to have the best tool to do so. But shouldn't replace the Eagle as our National symbol with a Nuclear warhead right? Why should you put that image out to the world as if that's all we are about?

Show the world that owning a gun is normal by being a good human being, and not trying to cram it down anyone's throat.

Works both ways don't you

Works both ways don't you think?

Yes

absolutely

This is brilliant. Whoever

This is brilliant. Whoever put this together, well done. It demonstrates the hypocrisy that we all speak about. Thanks for posting.

You Know You're a GUN CONTROL HYPOCRITE IF....

Love this guy!

BTW, great post op.

I'm rather disappointed in Peter Dinklage. He's my favorite character in Game of Thrones.

I wonder if any of these boot licking libtard celebs take into account the fact that by putting out their ignorant anti-freedom views, they may be alienating themselves from some of their fans.

What is freedom? Freedom is the right to choose; the right to create for
yourself the alternative of choice. Without the responsibility and exercise
of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing.

Actually, they are right...

We, US, we need to demand a plan. But it's not going to be a plan that strips me or any American of our rights. Hellooooo Hollywood...That is the single most unamerican thing you can do, strip poeple of their rights! And by the way, these are not rights given to us by any government, so they do not have the power to take these rights away. We do need a plan. And an American plan. But my plan is more along the lines of more guns. Cops can't be everywhere, we have to protect ourselves in case they can't get there in time.

Also - If they try to take our weapons, do ya think that the poeple in our gov't will turn in their weapons? I beleive that as much as I believe they all pay their taxes like we are expected too. Why don't the celebrities stand up on TV and fight for those things? Naaaaa, that's not American enough for them.

Nobody, but nobody does more

Nobody, but nobody does more to promote violence than Hollywood. Hell, even Dubya might have stayed out of Iraq if he hadn't seen too many Hollywood shoot 'em ups.

The Number One Answer Is.

Never let progressive lefties or righties carry guns. They seem to get progressively more idiotic in their thoughts and values as they get older. My opinion.

I keep wondering when (not

I keep wondering when (not if) the federal government is going to attempt to actually confiscate the legally owned firearms that people already have in their possession? I think that most people would just turn them over. And I think too, that there would be a lot of violence with some others, but the politicians themselves would not care one way or another because it would not be them that have to go house to house taking peoples guns and possibly getting shot at.

I'm curious...

How many of those celebrities in the original video do you suppose have NEVER owned a gun, carried a gun for protection, used the services of an armed body guard or performed in a role where gun violence was depicted?

I'm sure they'd even agree that the average person, to whom this message appears to target, has never participated in at least the last two items listed?

More importantly however, how many of these celebrities would you guess have pledged to never participate in any of the things I listed from now on? Otherwise I fail to see the purpose of this message outside that based on hypocrisy and exploitation.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Show me a rich liberal and I

Show me a rich liberal and I will show you a person with an armed body guard.

Why most big actors suck.....

Most big actors do not rise on the pyramid because of "how well they act."

The first priority in the selection process is "what political views they hold."

Then it is, "connections" sexual or otherwise, from there they are made up or broke down with the roles they are given and the money placed behind them.

This IS the movie industries standards of "affirm-ative -ACTION-."

Gotta agree with this video.

Gotta agree with this video. The celebrities are total hypocrites. Did they learn nothing from the plots that they star in? All movie plots with weapons: government kills a lot of people in wars with guns...and...when the bad guys come after you the only way to save yourself is to be armed.

Have Hollywood re-make scenes with gun control.

I'd like to see what a hollywood shootout looks like of law abiders without guns or training and the unlawful with their unlawful guns.

Also, what happens when all the "good guys" turn in their guns, yet the "bad guys" don't?

They don't want guns banned for those with elite privilege.

Like Law enforcement, government agencies, military and specially privileged corporations like those that film such movies and of course the mercenaries that fight the wars.

security guards

that protect their gated communities where they live

Great video

Wish this was made into a minute and played on tv. Also, awesome choice with Ramallah for the closing song haha. I laughed so hard and haven't heard that in years!

Dec. 23 or 24th P.M.

Someone posted a very graphic video on DP with a screamming little Iraqi boy who's jaw blown off and most of the lower part of his tibbia.

The video was illustrating "what a disarmed people look like."

I've looked all over trying to find that video to give it the bumpS it deserves. I thought it was this video..... Were some scenes removed?

Anyone know the title or link?

Much appreciated!
