I’m reposting this because it’s my most viewed post ever AND my least liked-which I find fascinating.
I also want to clarify something important.
If the video RUN (below) was an R rated movie I saw at the movie theatre, I would think nothing of it because I’m that desensitized now. I’m not against violent movies adults pay to go see. I’m pretty Libertarian like that, Quentin Tarantino.
But this video RUN was paid for by Jay-Z and Beyonce as a promotional video for their upcoming tour. They made it for fun, then they put it on You-Tube for every kookaburra on the planet to see, for free, as many times as they’d like-over and over and over again.
Beyonce also requests below that We Demand a Plan. I think we’d all LOVE a plan. Was this in the plan?
Do we give carte blanche to our influencers and icons to ask us this:
And then do this? (Warning: This video is rated R.)
What do you think?
I wish the US would do as Australia did and ban weapons, not just assault rifles although that would be a good start. I understand there has not been a mass murder in Australia since they put the ban in place. The US bows to the NRA, they are powerful and until the US passes legislation protecting our citizens and isn’t afraid of cowtowing to the NRA there will be more mass murders. It’s a sad state of affairs really.
