Donald Trump broke the brains of many in Hollywood.
Increasingly more celebrities have gone on deranged rants about Trump and politics more broadly.
Now Madonna just said something mind-numbing about gun control and the police.
Many celebrities who have achieved fame and fortune in some form of entertainment feel as though their success bestows upon them special knowledge in other avenues of life.
That’s why so many actors and musicians opine about politics without having the slightest clue of what they’re talking about.
Long-time pop diva Madonna is a perfect example of this.
In 2017 after Donald Trump’s inauguration, Madonna got a visit from the secret service when she said, “I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
Her political takes have somehow gotten even more unhinged since then.
Madonna recently released an Instagram video advocating for gun control.
In the video she says:
“Have you heard of this new vaccination for America? It’s going to keep us all alive. It’s going to keep us all safe…It’s called gun control, okay? It’s called gun safety, all right? New vaccination. It should be mandatory for all citizens.”
Gun control is supposed to be the “new vaccination” that saves America.
This is the same tired plea from the gun grabbers that constantly gets recycled.
In a follow-up Instagram post to the video, Madonna said:
“Yes-people kill people, not guns. But the vast majority of people are not enlightened and guns are too easy to own. If they were outlawed then no one would feel the need to own a gun to protect themselves from those who have guns.”
Madonna is using the logic of a seven-year-old.
The overwhelming majority of gun owners are law-abiding and responsible.
And the countless instances of gun ownership acting as a deterrent for criminals are not considered by the gun control zealots.
Madonna’s vapid take on guns is partly why gun sales continue to rise; the reality on the ground doesn’t match the rhetoric of the gun grabbers.
Madonna also commented on the police and recent shootings that have roiled activists on the Left.
“As for Police killing innocent children. Shooting and suffocating and brutalizing innocent people…………They should go immediately to jail for the rest of there [sic] lives. No trial, no corrupt justice system.”
Madonna wants to get rid of due process of law.
Regressive leftists like Madonna have zero concept of rights and due process protects the most vulnerable in society from abuses of power.
Unfortunately, many liberals have abandoned civil liberties in favor of fascistic mob rule.
For example, the ACLU will no longer defend the rights of people they find abhorrent.
Corporate press outlets have published multiple pieces about how free speech is “problematic.”
Other so-called liberals have expressed envy over the Chinese Communist Party’s model of governance.
And useful idiots like Madonna are being used to propagate ideas that roll back American freedoms.
