LOS ANGELES, November 5, 2017 — Exactly four weeks to the day of the Las Vegas shooting, tragedy struck with two separate church shootings. The Texas Church shooting that killed 26, leaving ten in critical condition and a Sunday assault in Fresno, California leaving one person killed, another wounded, at a Fresno church.
Texas Church Shooting
Devin Kelly entered the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and murdered at least 26 people. If not for a couple of private citizens with guns, more people would have been killed.
The 26-year-old shooter died trying to escape.
This horror occurred less than one week after an Islamist murdered eight people in New York City. One month after Las Vegas.
With rare exceptions, these horrible events fall into one of three categories. The killer is either an Islamist, a leftist, or a mentally ill individual. The Manhattan killer fell into the first category. The Las Vegas and Texas shooters have been tougher to define, with the third explanation being the most plausible.
Hollywood responds to Texas Church Shooting
Hollywood celebrities quickly began exploiting the Southerland tragedy under the Democrat playbook of never letting a good crisis go to waste. The bodies of the victims ranging in age from five to 72 were not even cold before liberals began exploiting the horror for the sake of raw partisan politics.
Rather than rehash tired old arguments, it is time to just call out these Hollywood liberals by name.
Chelsea Handler tweeted,
Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans.

Debra Messing spent most of Sunday before and after the shooting attacking Jared Kushner, supporting Obamacare enrollment, and politicking for Democrats in various states she does not live.

She took a brief moment from her own partisan warfare to repeat a CNN Correspondent Jason Kander’s Tweet.
People killed WHILE praying deserve more than prayers alone. They deserve a Senator with the everyday courage to put lives before NRA cash. https://t.co/wKA1ixx5mb

Alyssa Milano also retweeted Kander while tweeting herself
When will this madness end? How many more innocent people must die?

This was followed by a series of tweets attacking the Second Amendment and promoting ACA enrollment. With these ladies, it is all politics all the time.
Ashley Judd retweeted an insufferable tweet from an Obama-loving community organizer named Michael Skolnik.
God ain’t gonna change gun laws.
We MUST make politicians do it.

Lest anyone think that all vapid thoughtless wonders are women, comedian Michael Ian Black offered his alternative reality.
I’ll just keep saying it: The NRA is a terrorist organization.

Hollywood has its share of insensitive clods, but nothing tops the liberal media for sheer naked partisanship disguised as reporting.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid tweeted,
The @NRA is soaked and bathed in blood. How do its adherents sleep at night?
— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) November 5, 2017
As expected, hard leftist politicians ignored the lessons of 1994, 2000, 2010, 2014 and 2016 when they pushed gun control and lost.
2020 Democrat contender and political demagogue Liz Warren did what she does on Twitter.
How many more people must die at churches or concerts or schools before we stop letting the @NRA control this country’s gun policies?
— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) November 5, 2017
Los Angeles Congressman Ted Lieu, whose district includes wealthy Hollywood liberals, offered comments so crass that he made Senator Warren seem like a reasonable moderate.
I agree my prior tweet could be better. So here: I pray for the victims in TX. Also, screw the @NRA &amp; can you help Dems take back the House.
— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) November 5, 2017
Time for the liberal anti-gun zealots to face reality.
Facing facts, Hollywood celebrities are hated much more than the NRA. People are far less likely to trust Hollywood, an industry overrun with daily scandals involving sexual assault and pedophilia. The same Hollywood celebrities demonizing the NRA fail to realize that women who own guns and know how to use them are far less likely to be sexually assaulted.
Had Asia Argento, Rose McGowan, and Mira Sorvino been armed, Harvey Weinstein’s reign of sexual terror may have ended much earlier.
As for liberal media hypocrites, they work in air-conditioned buildings. Like Hollywood celebrities, media celebrities, and politicians enjoy the safety of gun toting private security. Before they ask America to give up their guns, they need to give up their guns.
Despite tragedy like the Texas Church Shooting, Democrats are fighting a losing war
The members of Congress resorting to dangerous anti-gun rhetoric are coastal liberals unwilling to acknowledge why they are a shrinking minority. Democrats have lost over 1,000 seats in the last eight years. Outside of the coastal big cities, Democrats barely register as a legitimate political party in large swaths of the country.
Liberals refuse to deal with the mental illness issue. They deny their own leftist violent thugs including Antifa, Occupy and Black Lives Matter. They refuse to acknowledge the threat of radical Islam, spending their time and effort trying to defeat a Trump travel ban that would save lives.
Liberals have repeatedly put political correctness over national security from foreign and domestic threats. They blame guns, the NRA, Republicans, conservatives, Christians, and everybody and everything except the actual causes of the violence.
Gun Control does not stop gun violence
Gun control would not have stopped a leftist from shooting former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords or current Congressman Steve Scalise. It would not have prevented Senator Rand Paul from being assaulted by a liberal neighbor unable to handle political disagreements in a civil manner.
Gun control has failed everywhere in America it has been the most stringent, from Chicago to Baltimore to the District of Columbia.
It is long past time for liberals in Hollywood, media, and politics to stop demagoguing serious problems when they reject anything remotely resembling a workable solution.
Those who babble vapid slogans like #StrongerTogether need to stop tearing America apart by destroying American culture.
It is long past time for liberals to stop trying to repeal the Second Amendment. They are too ideologically blind and too stupid to realize that the Second Amendment rights of conservatives are the only thing holding up the First Amendment rights of liberals.
Rhetoric dishonors lives lost in the Texas Church Shooting tragedy
26 people are dead because of an act of evil. It dishonors their lives and memories to use their deaths to push a horrendous policy idea that would result in many more deaths.
Those who abuse their microphone and confuse being famous for knowing anything about anything need to be publicly shamed. They have a First Amendment right to speak. The rest of us in Normal America have a right to call them out for being the narcissistic, nihilistic, uninformed, ignorant slobs that they are.
Pray for the fallen, and demand that liberal demagogues are stopped before they get the rest of us killed.
