Who said liberal celebrities don’t have valid opinions? Well, actually actress Jody Foster did and then proceeded to say she would like to see a world where humans are disarmed and robots have all of the guns. I don’t think anyone in Hollywood has a good take on the 2nd Amendment, but this is easily the worst. If our Founding Fathers could not have imagined modern weaponry, as liberals claim, then they sure as hell weren’t thinking about the possibility of killer robots.
Foster is promoting her new film Hotel Artemis, which has been described as one of the worst movies ever made. Doing anything to avoid talking about the movie, Foster threw out this bit of wisdom in an IndieWire interview:
“I have a thousand opinions, and I certainly give money and do a lot of things behind the scenes, but it’s not my personality to believe that celebrities have the expertise to try to influence other people’s ideas or their feelings, politically,” said Foster.
And yet, Foster then jumped immediately on the topic of gun control. I guess she must a have a split-personality.
“I had a lot of thoughts in terms of the power of the instrument and why it’s so problematic that human beings should have an instrument of death at their fingertips so freely when we are emotional human beings. I mean, I’d be much more comfortable having robots have them, but we are designed to have emotions that overflow and that are not guided by our heads … To have sentient beings that are completely and entirely guided by their emotions have the power to administer life or death using one kilowatt of energy in a nanosecond is just unfathomable with me,” said Foster.
Can’t conceive of humans owning guns, but loves the idea of robots with guns? Got it.
Is she out of her frickin’ mind? As a working Hollywood actress, is she not familiar with the Terminator film series? Don’t ever give guns to robots. Just don’t.
No matter how you look at this statement it’s just insane. She doesn’t give a crap about the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution and would to see all Americans disarmed while at the same time is “comfortable” with a cyborg army packing heat and roaming the streets. What happens when the robots figure out humans are a threat to their existence? We all know what happens, just not Foster.
This is on par with saying to eliminate racial bias in policing, all law enforcement officers should be replaced with flesh-eating zombies because the undead don’t discriminate based on skin color. Sure, these things sound crazy AF when you say them out loud, but Jody Foster just said it.
And this probably boils down to that liberal thing where they don’t trust themselves so they feel like everyone else must be as nuts as they are:
“Isn’t it possible that we all have that bit of insanity in us? That’s why I’m for gun control,” Foster said.
Speak for yourself, Jody. And she did, just to prove how truly bonkers she is:
“Absolutely. Hunting, I get that – let’s protect hunting. But I don’t believe that people should have access to life-or-death situations at any emotional time in their life. I don’t really believe that a human being who feels [things] should have the option at their fingertips,” she said.
She does understand that people hunt with guns and that those same guns that kill animals also have the capability to kill humans, right?
Let’s run through this real quick: Foster doesn’t think people can be trusted with guns, but feels it’s okay for hunters to have them as long as they don’t have emotions otherwise the robots get the guns. Maybe that’s not what she was getting at, but I defy you to come up with a better summation of her lunacy.
