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.
