Hollywood's culture of murder and death

Following the tragedy in Newtown CT liberals have been falling all over themselves spreading blame. They have targeted the NRA and video games.

The insufferable airheads of Inside Edition and Entertainment Tonight have the tragedy all figured out.

Meanwhile, new details are emerging about what might have driven Adam Lanza over the edge.

Published reports say Nancy Lanza went on a vacation to the Omni Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire, enjoying gourmet food and being pampered at the spa.

She checked into the luxury resort at 12:10 pm Tuesday, December 11 following a five-hour drive from Newtown, Connecticut. She stayed there for three days, and checked out on Thursday, December 13 at 12:27 pm, the day before the massacre.

20-year-old Adam Lanza was back in Newtown during those three days in the words of one headline: "Home Alone To Plot A Massacre."

It was all because of a mini-vacation. Yikes.

Of course, one obvious and significant part of our violent culture was left untouched by these dopes.

Movies. Hollywood.

Hollywood has contributed mightily to the decay of American culture. We used to have White Christmas, now we have Reservoir Dogs. We used to have Mary Poppins. Now we have Kill Bill. Hollywood has coarsened our culture. It has desensitized kids to senseless murder and senseless violence.

Let's examine just how much Hollywood has glorified death. Here is an accounting of the deaths that occur in movies courtesy of Movie Body Counts.

Ban vacations!

When vacations are banned, only criminals will have vacations.

It is like 1968 all over again.

I read a movie review for VILLA RIDES back in 1968. It was an “OK shoot-em up adventure film.”

Two weeks later I read another review....”A movie that glorified violence!”

So what happened in those two weeks? Bobby Kennedy got shot and the MSM went berzerk.

The Benghazi movie riot Lies were more believable than the stories about this event. None of it seems credible.

How does a 20 year old autistic kid steal so many weapons and gain entrance to a locked school wearing camo and body armor, and slaughter so many defenseless innocents after supposedly killing his mom in cold blood, and suiciding? What about the other identified persons reportedly chased into the woods? How can there be false reports about the mom being a teacher, that his brother was the culprit, that there were other gunmen, that frankly none of this story is even plausible. And yet President Omuslim has time between the fiscal cliff and Hawaii surf to make a personal site visit. Attorney General Fast Furious Holder has time for a pre holiday site visit. Gun banning is trumpeted for a week by the Ministry of Propaganda. Gun shops raided by Feds, while volume dealers are selling in a frenzy to buyers now, Walmart running out of guns, Fed checks hitting records -— this feels too surreal to be what it is alleged to be . Islamist Major Nadal did the same thing yelling Allah Akbar in Ft Hood, slaughtering soldiers and families, and Obama ordered us not to jump to conclusions. A mentally ill man in Arizona shoots a Congresswoman campaigning in front of the grocery store. Who is influencing these people? Or are we seeing extreme decadence and social deterioration? Is it movies and video games that cause mass murders? Or is something more sinister afoot, something like Aleppo, something like Benghazi, something like Cairo, something like a Fast and Furious, maybe just plain old False Flag?

I do not know what to believe anymore. I cancelled the papers Houston Chronicle and NYT (know thine enemy). I turned off the radio in the car. I turned off the TV, listen to zero news. I only read selectively from internet, mostly from FR. I listened to zero presidential debates. I watched the illegal election results return Mao to power. There is a link between the thug and communists and stealing all the money, where did that 16 trillion go, exactly? Who pays for all these vacations? If there is a fiscal cliff, why is Mao surfing in Hawaii? If there is a mass murder truly caused by an autistic kid who executes a sinister mass murder flawlessly, why is the focus on a ban that has been done before and was not successful then, except, at the next election, when all congressional gun ban supporters were slammed out of office at the next election -and the gun sales underway prove that will happen again.
