You just knew Hollywood celebrities were going to push their “guns are bad” narrative before the Nov. 6 midterm elections, and they have — but it seems like it was kind of an afterthought.
I don’t know if they were preoccupied with the migrant caravan or the deranged mail bomber or if they just couldn’t get their collective left-wing messaging together soon enough to produce a polished video, but this one really falls short.
Hollywood, the land of glitz and glamour, is going pretty low budget to remind us that it hates the Second Amendment.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I don’t submerge myself enough in the Hollywood scene to be able to know who half of these people are. It also took a couple of times watching to recognize some of these so-called stars without their makeup. Kevin Bacon, Michael J. Fox and Susan Sarandon are among the more recognizable faces in the video.
In the video, posted by the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety, various Hollywood liberals take turns speaking to say: “On Nov. 6 we have an opportunity to elect candidates who will actually do something about our country’s gun violence crisis. Gun sense candidates who will support common-sense gun safety laws. Candidates who will offer more than thoughts and prayers. And most importantly people who aren’t bought and paid for by the NRA.
“But we have to show up to the polls to actually make that happen. So we’ve got to get out and vote for them.”
“So what’s your plan for voting? How ya gonna get there?”
Here is where you might ask yourself if they had to cut the budget when it came to scriptwriters or if they told the celebrities to ad lib. Either way, it’s clear the strategy to get the vote out is less than innovative.
“Do you know where it is?” the celebrities say. “Can you walk to your voting location? Will you take public transportation? Maybe you’ll drive there. Maybe you’ll bike there, or you’ll carpool. Knock on your neighbors’ doors, ask them if they need a ride. Come hell or high water, you gotta get there.
“What’s your plan for voting? … Are you gonna vote before a meeting? After a meeting?
“We’re going after breakfast.”
“I know I’m gonna do it early in the morning so I can get an ‘I Voted’ sticker and gloat all day.”
And this is just way too much information: “Personally I like to vote in my underwear, so I’ll be sending in an absentee ballot.”
The celebrities then ask if you’ve done your “gun sense” research, giving a number where you can send a text “to make your voting plan, get connected to information about gun sense candidates and everything else you need to vote on Nov. 6.”
So I fell on the sword for this article and sent a text. I’m most likely now registered with a group that calls itself Moms Demand Action, which sent me to Guns Sense Voter, a site with a list of all the left-wing anti-gun candidates on my ballot.
Thanks to Gun Sense Voter for giving me an ironclad list of candidates not to vote for and helping me develop a voting plan for Nov. 6.
I’m going to get dressed and wear makeup to the polls. I plan to go early in the day so I can wear my “I Voted” sticker all day and gloat that I helped the red wave overtake the anti-Second Amendment liberals who want to take my guns. I might just use my conceal and carry license as my voter identification at my polling place, too. Wouldn’t that plan just be icing on the cake of a midterm victory?
What’s your plan for Nov. 6?
