Hollywood: ‘Why should the Bible’s definition of marriage be America’s definition, barbarians?’

http://twitter.com/#!/MiaFarrow/status/200069280610525184

Hollywood is in a tizzy over all y’all bitter bible clingers and your Amendment One passing ways. Oh, and they don’t understand the Constitution, much less the Judeo-Christian ethics upon which this country was founded.

Oh North Carolina – the disappointment we feel now is nothing compared to the bewilderment & shame your children will feel

— mia farrow (@MiaFarrow) May 9, 2012

Shame!

Sad 2C North Carolina double-ban marriage #equality. If it was truly about the "sanctity of marriage", you'd have made divorce illegal too

Also racist and stuff.

The last time North Carolina put an Amendment regarding marriage in their Constitution was 1875, when they banned interracial marriage.

Molly Ringwald was pushing for the defeat of Amendment One, but to her credit she at least refrained from demonizing those with whom she disagrees. The rest of Hollywood could take a lesson from her.

Uh. The people of North Carolina did speak; it was put to a vote, sweetie. But, ‘barbarians’ and ‘bigots’ aren’t really people, huh? North Carolina did not use activist judges, honey. That’s what your side does. Try to keep up.

But we guess it’s easier just to scream bigot and barbarian at people, oh-so-enlightened and tolerant Left.

Perhaps Hollywood shouldn’t get any more of your dirty barbarian and bible-y money?

Paging Wesley Snipes: The Twitterverse awaits your post-prison debut

http://twitter.com/#!/ArsenioHall/status/320356680527392769

As Arsenio Hall helpfully notes, Wesley Snipes was released from federal prison just in time for Tax Day.

In 2010, Snipes was convicted of failing to file several years of tax returns. He’ll remain under house arrest until July 19.

Samuel L. Jackson can’t wait to see him back on the big screen.

My friend Wesley Snipes is back on da bricks! WELCOME HOME! Hope to see him back on screen… SOON!

— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) April 6, 2013

But many Twitterers would settle for seeing Snipes take the social media plunge. (Note to Wesley: Samuel L. Jackson is not the guy to go to for Twitter advice.)

Celebri-ghouls The Red Hot Chili Peppers: Ban all guns, change Constitution

http://twitter.com/#!/flea333/status/280146658082320385

Flea and Chad Smith from the band The Red Hot Chili Peppers jumped aboard the celebri-ghoul train with both feet. Like their fellow celebrities, they immediately began politicizing the horrific tragedy in Newtown. 26 people are dead, including 20 children, and these cretins rush to dance on their graves to score political points.

@flea333 love you, love RHCP, but this is the dumbest tweet I’ve seen from you my man

— David Paul Miller (@JerseyBucks) December 16, 2012

Not so fast; there are more oh-so-brilliant tweets.

Er. Wait, there’s even more.

change the constitution

— Flea (@flea333) December 14, 2012

His band mate, drummer Chad Smith, echoes his call to change The Constitution of the United States.

How many innocent children need to die before we “The people” make a constitutional change?

— Chad Smith (@RHCPchad) December 14, 2012

Rights? Who needs pesky rights? The Chili Peppers have spoken. Chad then retweeted the always jackassy, and snit fit prone, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine.

Flea then retweeted these ghoul-gems.

Really? Then why the public backing of Obama and a free concert for his volunteers? Also, no agenda? Then why all the anti-gun zealotry?

@flea333 wouldn’t wanting to ban guns mean having an agenda? No hate meant here, just an observation.

@flea333 If you don’t care about politics then why do you keep tweeting about no guns???

— Rachel Slotnick (@RachelPeppers) December 16, 2012

Well, Flea, maybe you should give a hoot and get an interest in reality. Start by talking to these Twitter users.

@flea333 There’s only one problem. Even if guns are banned, people will still find a way to get their hands on one to murder innocent people

— Philna 🙂 (@philnavv) December 16, 2012

@flea333 banning guns will not stop a psycho from obtaining a weapon and it takes away our self defense.

— Duncan O’Keeffe (@DunkOKeeffe) December 16, 2012

@flea333 but when you are in your home (as i was), and someone is standing over you, trust me, my gun saved my life !!

— tonya rutherford (@tigermom48) December 16, 2012

Flea would rather Twitter user Tonya had been unarmed. Perhaps Flea should also talk to these conservative women, who understand that a real war on women is being waged by anti-gun zealots.

#uniteblue #p2 I love how the global warming wacko who sold out to Big Oil has the balls to call the NRA a ‘fraud’:theblaze.com/stories/2013/0…

— Rob (@rovibe71) March 10, 2013

Here’s a fun flashback from 2000 on Gore’s convenient conversion on gun control.

When it comes to iconic campaign images, it is hard to beat the moment, a month after the tragedy at Columbine High, when Al Gore strode into the Republican Senate, commandeered the ivory gavel and broke a tie to require background checks on people who buy weapons at gun shows. It was, he declared, “a turning point for our country.” You could almost see the ad in the can. But in that same chamber 14 years before, Gore cast some other pivotal votes–ones that made him a hero to the gun lobby and that could come back to haunt him. “We could have made Al Gore NRA Man of the Year–every single vote,” says National Rifle Association honcho Wayne LaPierre. “It’s the most spectacular conversion I’ve ever seen. It’s worthy of being investigated by the church.”

In an interview last weekend, the Vice President said his early views of the issue reflected the perspective of a Congressman from a rural part of the South where “guns did not really present a threat to public safety but rather were predominantly a source of recreation.” As a young representative of a conservative Tennessee district, Gore opposed putting serial numbers on guns so they could be traced, and voted to cut the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms budget by $4.2 million so that it could not carry out regulations that had unleashed a torrent of 300,000 letters from gun owners.

What is likely to be more troublesome now are the votes he took in 1985 when the Senate–taking its first major stand on gun control in almost two decades–significantly weakened the gun law it had put into place after the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy. By then elected statewide, Gore was representing Memphis and Nashville and other urban areas where, he acknowledges, “gun violence was even at that time beginning to increase.” But he voted against a 14-day waiting period for handgun purchases and for allowing their sale across state lines. And as recently as 1986, the future Vice President told the Washington Monthly that gun-control laws “haven’t been an effective solution to the underlying problem of violent crime.” Now Gore says he was in a “process of changing one’s understanding that doesn’t occur overnight.” And, he adds, “there are certainly some votes I would cast differently knowing what I do about the issue now.”

Principled evolving? Nah. Once a phony, always a phony.

Just ask Gore’s old employees at Current TV:

“We all know now that Al Gore is nothing but a bulls***ter.”

Michael Moore’s big idea for pro football: Lots of artificial snow

http://twitter.com/#!/MMFlint/status/410166740380041216

Sure, games played in the snow are entertaining, but wouldn’t using artificial snow be cheating? Not to Michael Moore, who’s sold on the idea of a field of the white stuff for every game — for safety’s sake.

http://twitter.com/#!/MMFlint/status/410167637046755328

Of course, changing football to snowball will require a few adjustments to the rules.

Newt Gingrich plays hardball, calls Chris Matthews out for his racism

In a short but oh-so-sweet exchange this afternoon on “Hardball,” Chris “Tingles” Matthews got his quivering leg handed to him by none other than Newt Gingrich.

Oh, snap! Jake Tapper nails Carney on Obama’s Seamus joke

http://twitter.com/#!/AndrewStilesWFB/status/236131327517282304

At today’s White House press briefing, ABC’s Jake Tapper confronted hapless press secretary Jay Carney on the president’s lame Seamus joke during a stump speech earlier this week. For a president who prides himself on his laser-like focus on the serious issues, Barack Obama sure does seem to have a hard time resisting the temptation to distract from them. Funny, that.

Needless to say, Carney didn’t take kindly to Tapper’s question:

Carney says that Obama's Seamus quip "was a joke." More: "I think a little levity is a lot different from the kind of ridiculous charges."

Carney on Obama's Iowa Seamus joke: "Maybe I'm naive to think that a one-line joke about a dog would become principle focus of coverage"

— Ali Weinberg (@AliABCNews) August 16, 2012

Yeah? Well, too bad. Carney and his boss had it coming, and conservatives couldn’t’ve been more pleased:

It totally should RT @igorbobic: "One joke as an aside should not become the focus of the campaign," Carney says of Obama's Seamus joke.

The Obama camp is going to need to try a new tack, because right now, it’s really in no position to criticize anyone who questions its penchant for distraction.

Note to media hacks: Seamus and Tax Returns are over as "stories". You'll need new distractions to advance Obama's agenda now.

— Jack's Tweet Show (@jackmcoldcuts) August 16, 2012

Just pointing out, while lecturing on the importance of having policy debates, Carney has defended Seamus the dog jokes and made a Palin jab

— JaredHalpern (@JaredHalpern) August 16, 2012

Wee-ooo! Wee-ooo! Cue the liberal waaaaaaaahmbulance!

Lefty talk show host Bill Press thinks it’s time to focus on the important issues:

Oh great, now media's upset about Obama's Seamus joke. Jesus! Lighten up! Stop carrying water for Mitt Romney.

— Bill Press (@bpshow) August 16, 2012

After all, when Press cracks jokes about Ann Romney and her horse Rafalca, it’s only for serious journalistic purposes.

Media Matters “research fellow” and articulate Twitchy-basher Oliver Willis mounted his best defense of Jay Carney, and, like Press, highlighted the mainstream media’s notorious obsession with finding faults in Obama. Yes, he’s serious.

abc calls out wahmbulance for obama talking to ent tonight. because the wh press corps wants to ask the dumb Qs http://t.co/TTXAizlE

— Oliver Willis (@owillis) August 16, 2012

President Obama hasn’t formally taken questions from the White House press corps in more than two months, while on the campaign trail in Iowa yesterday he made time for reporters from People Magazine and Entertainment Tonight.

His last news conference was at the G20 in June, when he answered six questions from three reporters on the European debt crisis, the conflict in Syria, and the notion of politics stopping at the water’s edge.

The White House press corps has not formally been given the opportunity to ask questions of the president on U.S. soil since his appearance in the Briefing Room on June 8 (when he said “the private sector is doing fine.“)

Actually, Oliver, it seems to us that the president is reaching a point where he’s even afraid to be confronted by sycophantic “real journalists.”

in press briefing, jake tapper asking about obama's dog on roof joke, because entertainment tonight might not ask serious questions.

— Oliver Willis (@owillis) August 16, 2012

he could have asked about obama's attack on romney and his energy policy, but you know, entertainment tonight.

— Oliver Willis (@owillis) August 16, 2012

obama spends 10 seconds on a joke, media says its his fault they don't focus on the other 20 minutes of his speech. amazeballs.

— Oliver Willis (@owillis) August 16, 2012

@owillis Well, perhaps the President shouldn't be wasting time with lame Seamus jokes. But somehow it is @jaketapper's fault.

— Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) August 16, 2012

That Jake Tapper … he’s just such a big bully!

@jodikantor Your concern trolling over the Seamus aside the President gave is ridiculous and the false equivalency is abhorrent!

— Pnthrgrlgail (@Mama4Obama1) August 16, 2012

Jake Tapper used his opportunity to ask WH a question and wasted it on Seamus and whining.

— Pnthrgrlgail (@Mama4Obama1) August 16, 2012

Sorry, Obamaphiles. Stomp your feet all you want, but you don’t get to whine about this and expect to be taken seriously.

RT @bethanyshondark: Wow, Carney is claiming the Romney campaign are distracting from the real issues. | Seamus, tax returns, dressage.

— jimgeraghty (@jimgeraghty) August 16, 2012

Note when GOP on the offensive on POLICY (Medicare), Obama & Biden try to scramble back to insignif issues–Seamus, Etch-A-Sketch.

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) August 16, 2012

Check. Mate.
