Can’t Take The Heat? Then Stop Saying Stupid, Incendiary Things! *Open Thread*


That is my free-of-charge advice to QUentin Tarrantino, the Hollywood director who made inflammatory comments about police officers after an officer had just been assassinated, and is now getting some heat for it. Tarrantino is now reaping what he has sow, and he doesn’t like it one bit. Gee, hate it for him. Not.

But now, Tarrantino is now trying to act like HE is the victim in all of this. I am not kidding. Here is a clip from Megyn Kelly’s show, which includes his initial comments as well as his latest “doubling down,” as Kelly said, about Blue Lives:

Wow. Yes, it is JUST because you are a Hollywood type that we are pissed off about what you said. Uh huh. It has nothing to do with the ridiculous comments, including the “white supremacy” claim, that has us angry.

“White Supremacy”??? At the same time he mentions Sheriff David Clarke, a BLACK MAN, he is injecting “White Supremacy” into all of this?! Oh, and he glorifies a number of criminals while he is at is when he lists off people who have died at the hands of police officers.

Now Tarrantino claims that people are being mean to him for speaking out, and claims he is just expressing First Amendment rights. Well, that’s true. He is an American, and he has the right to say what he wants. But when he starts playing the victim card, and starts race-baiting, well he can expect that others of us will express OUR First Amendment rights by not going to his movies, as noted in the video above.

What a piece of work he is. I am so sick of these people making incendiary claims, fueling violence against the Police, and then act like THEY are the victims. What a freakin’ child Tarrantino is. A sanctimonious, arrogant, holier-than-thou child at that, if you ask me. Clearly he has not learned that while we indeed do have Free Speech in this country, there are also consequences for what one says. This is a lesson Tarrantino should have learned long ago, but better late than never, huh?

And speaking of “stupid, incendiary” comments, Illinois Representative, Luis Gutierrez, a Democrat who essentially wants open borders is already going after Speaker Paul Ryan on Immigration. Here is Gutierrez conflating Immigrants with ILLEGAL Immigrants, on his high horse about how mean people are to and about illegal immigrants:

Yes, that is it, Rep. Gutierrez. People are just being terrible to these illegal aliens who are cutting the line, breaking the law, and demanding rights and benefits to which they are not entitled. Hate to break it to you, but that is NOT the original American Way. The American Way is to work hard, play by the rules, and do what’s right. Let them apply and get in line like LEGAL Immigrants do.

But I digress. Here is what Rep. Gutierrez said about Speaker Ryan and Immigration from The Hill:

Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) is criticizing Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for saying he won’t take up immigration reform before the presidential election.

“It is sad that he had to promise members of his conference — in writing — to not address a national issue on behalf of the American people,” he said of Ryan Wednesday on the House floor.

“He had to swear that he would not allow a vote on immigration reform as long as President Obama is President Obama,” Gutiérrez continued. “So the Congress that did nothing on immigration reform for the last two years will do nothing for the reminder of president’s term.
“It is really stunning. You must promise to do nothing in order to be Speaker of the do-nothing House,” he added.

Ryan vowed on Sunday that he would not tackle immigration reform during Obama’s final 14 months in office.

“The president has proven himself untrustworthy on this issue, because he tried to unilaterally rewrite the law itself,” he said, referencing Obama’s executive action on immigration policies. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Here’s the thing Rep. Gutierrez and other Democrats do not seem to understand: just because the Republicans don’t do what they WANT them to do does not mean they are doing NOTHING. They are doing SOMETHING.

In this case, Speaker Ryan is standing firmly on the Constitution and just who it is who writes LAWS for this country. That would be the Congress, which one would think Rep. Gutierrez would surely know. Apparently not. Here is more from Speaker Ryan from another Hill piece:

[…] “The president has proven on this issue that he wants to go around Congress, not work with Congress,” he told host Greta Van Susteren on Fox News’ “On the Record.”

“Presidents don’t write laws — Congress writes laws,” Ryan said, referring to Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

“He is transforming the country in a direction we never wanted to go in the first place,” the Wisconsin lawmaker added.

“The moment for our country is just so dire. If we don’t like the way this country is headed, then we have to change it.”

Ryan vowed that he will work during his Speakership to lead House GOP members into battle against overreach from the Obama administration.

“We need to do a better job of being an opposition party,” he said. “We need to do a better job of holding this government accountable, getting more transparency and basically speaking truth to power.”

“We [also] have to be a preposition party and tell people who we are and what we believe,” Ryan added. “[It is] about having an agenda and a vision which we do not now have.” (Click here to read the rest.)

See, that is doing SOMETHING, not doing NOTHING. The Republicans are saying NO to the Open Border/Amnesty demand. Amazing how unclear Democrats and Liberals are on both the Constitution in general, and on casting aspersions (falsely) because someone DISAGREES with you. What is so hard about sticking with the facts, huh?

Apparently a lot, it seems.

Feel free to discuss any of the above, or whatever else is on your minds. This is an Open Thread.

    Oh poor little Tarantino. Not. He opened his big, ignorant mouth, stuck his foot/feet in and now is playing the victim card. Like you I am so tired of these Follywood fools. He isn’t man enough to own up to what he said and so must now pretend to be the victim. Although I doubt that given the fantasy land he lives in he seriously does think he’s the victim. Remember this is the cretin that gave us “Django Unchained” so that Jamie Foxx could chortle with glee about killing white people.

    I was never a fan. Didn’t like “Kill Bill” so much I never even watched “Kill Bill 2”. I did what “Inglorious Basterds” on television and it was a complete waste of time.

    Even fan of Tarantino movies like Larry Johnson over at NQ have said they will not boycott his movies.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Oops – Larry Johnson over at NQ has sais he WILL boycott Tarantino movies. Sorry LJ. :$

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      No worries – I figured that was what you were saying abt Larry. 🙂

      And yeah – what a putz this guy is. He thinks only HE has Free Speech rights and that people can’t react to what he says because he’s an American and he can say what he wants! How is it these people do not know that it goes BOTH WAYS??

      His incitement of violence against police officers and invoking”white supremacy” are way, WAY out of bounds…

    • mcnorman Says:

      Only by hitting them where it is painful will they understand. Money talks and Tarntino’s bs walks.

  2. mcnorman Says:

    Sick. Open borders daily means more and more votes for the left. I am already tired of Ryan.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      You said it, mcnorman, but I think Ryan is trying to stop the open borders people like Gutierrez and Obama want.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Something certainly has changed – last week Gutierrez was singing Ryan’s praises. Whatever else Ryan has done or will do I will always love that he says you can’t trust Obama.

        “I don’t think we can trust the president on this issue,” Ryan said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and other programs. “I do not believe we should advance comprehensive immigration legislation with a president who has proven himself untrustworthy on this issue.”

        It may just be an excuse to keep that particular issue from dogging the GOP candidates but if that’s true at least he did it, and said it, in a much smarter way than Boehner was able to frame his reasons. And not a tear in sight.

        Wanting immigration reform when you have a President that will veto anything he doesn’t like and you don’t have enough votes to override his veto is kind of foolish in my opinion. It just gives Obama and the media another chance to highlight a “win” for him. Yes I want to see the GOP fight. But I also want to see them win. And if you don’t get a Republican in the White House they, and we, will lose for another 4 years at the minimum.

        Keeping Hillary out of the Oval Office should be the primary concern of every citizen concerned for their country. Does anyone think she’ll stop the invasion on our border?

        Want immigration reform? How about just enforcing the laws we all ready have?

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Excellent comment, Marge – you said it. So did the cartoon. We HAVE Immigration laws. Let’s just enforce the ones we have now, and figure out whatever reform needs to be done. Rubio has some good ideas abt that – making it MERIT based instead of just letting people in because they have family here.

          Anyway, yes, good for Ryan for flat out saying he doesn’t trust Obama on this and WHY. He has good reason not to trust Obama. Obama has demonstrated time and time again that he will skirt the law, BREAK the law, and override the law, whenever he damn well pleases. How are you supposed to work with someone like that?? So yeah – they won’t do anything until 2017 when a new President is in. Until then, as you noted, ENFORCE THE LAW!

      • mcnorman Says:

        I agree.

    Sorry I still can not sing “my Heart Cries for You” with a straight face.

    Quentin baby you opened mouth, stuck foot in it, now choke on it

  4. helenk3 Says:

    had to share this picture of the Grand Canyon

  5. helenk3 Says:

    what are the odds of Hillary wearing an orange jumpsuit, not an orange pant suit on election day?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Well, according to Judge Jeanine who was on “Outnumbered” today, there’s a good chance Comey will indict her. Judge Jeanine said she worked with Comey and he is a straight shooter. So, yeah – maybe she will be in that orange jumpsuit!

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Oh shoot – if I’d have knows Judge Jeanine was going to be on I would have been sure to watch. I always check for Jonah Goldberg too.

        Wouldn’t it be great if Comey did the right thing?

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          It was SUCH a pleasant surprise to have her on there. It is the first time that I remember. She is something else, isn’t she? And I LOVE when they have Jonah Goldberg or Stephen Hayes.

          Yes, it surely would be a great thing. I am not holding my breath, but wow, it would be something!

    UC Merced knife attacker identified as ‘Faisal Mohammad’; FBI, DHS assisting with investigation

    Taxpayers won’t have to pay for a trial for this lunatic. Trials are only useful to decide guilt or innocence. No question here. I hope he rots in hell.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Such a pity liberals, can’t blame this on the NRA.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Yes, the liberals are no doubt trying to figure out how they can spin this to be abt gun control in their warped fashion. But yeah – Mohammad got some instant justice it sounds like…

    • mcnorman Says:

      Wait, he was angry about being kicked out of a study group at school which means that soon we will hear the R card being played.

    Conventional Wisdom Proves Ignorance in the Presidential Race

    By Victor Davis Hanson

    The current presidential campaign is blowing up lots of political myths.

    For years, the conventional lament was that the “wrong” Bush had run for president in 2000. George W. Bush was supposedly tongue-tied. He was said to be polarizing. He was derided as too much the twangy, conservative Texas Christian.

    If only his younger, softer-spoken brother, then-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, had run instead!

    So the myth went.

    There’s a lot of truth in this piece by VDH. I just never quite put it all together they way that he did.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Very interesting piece, Marge! I think Jeb just doesn’t stand much of a chance given the very deep field the Reps have this time around. He just does not have the charisma of some of the others who are not lightweights by any means. It could be that he will be closer in the end, but it just seems to me that there are too many others who are energizing people and who have the personality to go further.

    For you Amy and all the animal lovers who come here. My MIL just sent this to me and I’m typing through the tears.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Ohmygosh, that is just precious. Wow, Marge. Please thank your MIL for this moving, beautiful reunion!

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I immediately sent her off an email when I watched it –

        Okay you old stinker you made me cry, are you happy now? 😉

        She’ll find that funny. Since her surgery everyone in the family handles her with kid gloves. She says it makes her wonder if she’s sicker than she knows and is about to kick the bucket sooner rather than later.

        I tease her and make her laugh. It’s better for her and it does me good too.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          That is so good that you are able to interact with her in a real way, and to share that humor with her, Marge. I bet she thinks you’re a pip! 🙂

          And yes – that laughter is some good medicine, isn’t it?

  10. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    In advance of Carly Fiorina’s return to “The View” after the offensive comments they made about her is the following from Fiorina. It goes to the heart of Whoopi’s ludicrous assertion attempting to paint those comments as anything OTHER than offensive and trying to take credit for getting Fiorina onto the big CNN stage. Please. “The View” didn’t do it; those who support Fiorina did it.

    Here’s the link to an article from The Hill:

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Puhleeze! “The View” can’t raise their own ratings let alone raise the profile of a presidential candidate. Whoopi must have had her dreads too tight.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        ROTFLMAO – oh, my – you are so damn funny! Yes, apparently Whoopi does! Her lecturing someone of Fiorina’s intellect abt being able to tell when someone is attacking you or paying you a compliment was just assholic…

    Greg Gutfeld: Quentin Tarantino is a Loudmouth Putz

    By Katie Pavlich

    In case you’ve missed it, Quentin Tarantino has tripled down on comments he made during an anti-cop protest two weeks ago when he implied police officers are murderers. Not only has Tarantino refused to apologize, he’s playing the victim.

    Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld is having none of it and called the Hollywood director a “flat faced,” “loud mouth putz” yesterday on The Five.

    “The flat faced fool went on MSNBC to extend on his anti-cop blather, linking it to white supremacy,” Gutfeld says. “The clueless cretin then cites the First Amendment, as if anyone’s denying his right to yak. No one’s silencing your speech you dope, they’re just calling you a bozo for what you’ve said.”
