Liberal gun-hating The Huffington Post ran a review of an anti-gun play, which is ridiculous enough and I will get to that in moment. The thing that really astounds me is that this review starts out with the author saying that it’s okay to wish injury and death upon anyone who supports the 2nd Amendment and the NRA. Once again liberals prove what horrible people they are.
Michele Willens is a theater critic for NPR, which means we actually pay part of her salary. What do we get for our generous investment? Garbage like this:
You know how, in your darkest and deepest thoughts, you wish those NRA-hugging members of Congress would be personally affected by gun violence? (Come on, admit it) Well, New York has a play for you.
Willens basically just said that it is perfectly normal to hope that gun rights supporting members of Congress and their families are gunned down. She does say that these thoughts are deep and dark, but she also indicates that they are the kind of thing everyone thinks about so it’s no big deal to have them.
Another way to interpret this is that Willens not-so-secretly wishes that lawmakers who support the NRA would be injured or killed by gunfire to teach them a lesson. If only a pro-gun politician would take a bullet, she surmises, then that member of Congress would know how bad the right to keep and bear arms really is. This is both stupid and morbid.
As for the play Willens reviewed, it’s pretty much her wet dream:
Church & State, written by Jason Odell Williams, actually premiered at the Skylight Theatre in Los Angeles. Now, it is settling in at New World Stages off- Broadway for what could be a long and buzzy run. (It sold $15,000 in tickets before a single ad ran)
This four-character dark comedy (“Football is like God. I don’t need to see it to know it’s there.”) deals with a U.S. Senator from North Carolina who is facing certain re-election—- until his family comes perilously close to a Sandy Hook type incident. Then he not only questions his stand on gun safety, but the very existence of a religious entity that could allow a lone gunman to take down a classroom of children.
Sounds like a hoot. This play has everything: an anti-gun message, an anti-religion message, an anti-Republican message, and a mass shooting that takes the lives of children. Did I read that correctly that this is being billed as a comedy?
Then there is this:
Smartly, the producers are offering seats—and evenings—to progressive non-profits. (Planned Parenthood, Every Town For Gun Safety, Gays Against Gun Violence among others) The organizations will use the performances as fundraisers and information-spreaders, joining the play’s principals in post-show talkbacks.
Already, famous names and gun control advocates like Julianne Moore and Amy Schumer, have pledged to attend and support the show.
So clearly it is a liberal fantasy that people who support gun rights will be shot so they change their stance on the issue. There is no conservative equivalent to this shittiness. You don’t hear conservatives saying they hope that abortion-loving democratic members of Congress get chopped to pieces and then sucked up by a vacuum so they can gain some perspective.
I know I say it all the time, but liberals are the worst people on the planet.
