“Yo Paul…”

I admit it, I love following the Brady Campaign on social media outlets. I don’t pick on every little thing they do, but every once in a while, they just beg for it. Today, Paul put up a post on the blog no one reads on the problems of musicians glorifying violence. The only reason I saw it was because it had a mildly witty title that tweeted out with it.

Now, if Paul was truly serious about violence promoted by musicians, his efforts are laughable. He doesn’t call for any action other than watching more Brady-produced propaganda. There’s no threat to raise hell about what this teaches kids. He just asks people to give him more YouTube views. Woo-freakin’-hoo. Way to stand up for the cause there, Paulie.

“Yo Paul, I’m gonna let you finish, but Heston had one of the best rap-violence condemnations of all time.”

So I ask: Who is more effective? Charlton Heston putting his career on the line to pressure Time Warner to drop Ice-T or Paul putting up a blog post that no one reads asking people to watch a video.

It just goes to show that if the Brady Campaign was truly serious about addressing the problem of violence – and how it is embraced so casually in the entertainment world – they would take a serious stand. But considering how Paul runs to Hollywood for his fundraising dollars, I doubt we’ll ever see such a condemnation.

    They simply aren’t. They’re interested in banning guns and self-defense rights. If they cared about violence they wouldn’t be wasting all their energy worried about how many rounds fit into a mag, or a protruding pistol grip, or if somebody who’s submitted to countless background checks can bring a gun for a walk in the park or lock one in their car so they don’t violate their workplace’s stupid rules.

    Or hell how about letting our soldiers carry guns when they’re on US Soil?

    Nope, they don’t give two shits about violence.

    I read Paul’s blog, and Henigan’s and Sugarmann’s, etc.

    That’s the distiction. Only pro-gunners read his blog.

    I could make a suggestion on where Paul could start if he was truly serious.

    Devil’s Advocate – how far does the “violence in media” reach?

    I don’t want “24” canceled…
