Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Notorious horror author Stephen King has decided to publicly bash the NRA for apparently promoting violence. He said they should have to be the ones who clean up the blood and ‘guts’ in the next shooting. For a supposedly brilliant it’s quite difficult to understand how he does not see the hypocrisy in this statement.

Transcript of segment is below:

GLENN: Plenty of gun advocates cling to their semi‑automatics the way Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson clung to the stuff that was killing them. This is according to Stephen King in a 25‑page essay called “Guns. Guns. I don’t like guns.” It’s a ‑‑ it’s amazing. He says to claim that America’s culture of violence is responsible for school shootings is tantamount to cigarette company executives declaring that environmental pollution is the chief cause of cancer. It took ‑‑ it took more than one slim novel to cause these teenagers to do what they did. Yeah, one, one slim novel? Don’t you do, these ‑‑ Stephen King is the only one who can churn a book out faster than I can. And everybody’s like, geez, my gosh, Glenn Beck is writing another book? Yeah, mine aren’t 8,000 pages long. He’s got book after book after book, and tell me the sweet “Cuddle by the fireplace and read to your children” books that he has created. They’re all bloodbaths. And he says, “One only wishes that Wayne La Pierre and his NRA board of directors…” oh, please. Wayne, please make me an honorary board of directors, make me ‑‑ I’ll empty the garbage. Please, I’d wear it as such a badge of honor, such a badge of honor to be ‑‑ I count it as one of my ‑‑ I might even want to have this engraved on my tombstone: Lifetime member, NRA, currently trying to make it post‑lifetime member.

So anyway, he says, “One only wishes Wayne La Pierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of those violent scenes where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestines still containing the poor wads of half‑digested food that were some innocent bystander’s last meal.”

PAT: Good gosh.

GLENN: This guy’s bad.

PAT: He’s sick.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: Sick.

GLENN: Remember this is a guy who says all people in the military are stupid. Do we still have that?

PAT: I think so.

GLENN: This is a guy who says, you know, if you want to be ‑‑ you know, if you want to be in the military, don’t read. Just be stupid.

KING: I don’t want to sound like an ad, a public service ad on TV, but the fact is that if you can read, you can walk into a job later on. If you don’t, then you got the Army, Iraq, I don’t know, something like…

PAT: Mmm‑hmmm.

GLENN: Oh. So if you can’t read, you have the Army. This guy is an America‑hating ‑‑

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: ‑‑ military‑hating dirtbag. And I hate it because I like his work.

STU: Yeah, he’s one of the ‑‑

GLENN: I mean, he’s one of the best writers, you know, of the 20th century. He’s a great horror writer. He’s great.

STU: But one of the most purely stupid political commentators in existence.

PAT: Oh, no question.

GLENN: He is just an idiot.

STU: Every time.

PAT: And to blame the NRA for this. When he pumps out the books and movies he pumps out, he’s got no culpability for any of it.

GLENN: Here’s the reason why: Because he knows, he knows that the culture of violence ‑‑ look. You have the American Pediatrics, you have the American Medical Association, you have every single study that has ever come out say ‑‑ any credibility, they all say movies and violent games with kids lead to these things. Not in all cases.

STU: And obviously the vast, vast minority of them.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But ‑‑

GLENN: But your brain is not formed. Your brain’s not set really until it’s like 25. But up until, like, 13 or, what is it, 10 or 13, it’s really, you’re laying new pathways down. You start to put this kind of violence and stuff, it changes the way you process stuff. And so it’s proven. It’s proven fact. And yet nobody wants to talk about this. And so he wants to make sure that he’s the guardian. He’s the guardian of the gate. “I’m Stephen King, after all. And I mean, I’ve written about shootings and guttings and everything else.” He’s poured it into your mind, and he’s done it well. I read Stephen King novels. Scares the crap out of me. Although, you know, Stephen, there is another writer. I mean, I know you want to be the king of all scary writers. There’s another writer. Who was the guy who wrote that book? Oh, man, I can’t remember. I only read half of it. Scared the ‑‑ makes ‑‑ it makes Stephen King look like the president. Makes him look like a girl. You’re a girl. Demon Game, Devil’s Game? I can’t remember. Scary.

So Stephen is out now. All he’s doing is carrying all of the water for the culture, for those who want to put violence and blood and everything else in the culture and say that there’s no effect. I’m sorry. I’m not saying regulate you. I’m not saying ban you. I’m not saying regulate the movies. I’m just saying be responsible, that’s all. I don’t want to put you out of business or anything else. Be responsible. And understand as a consumer be responsible and understand that this is affecting your children. Once your ‑‑ once your brain is formed and everything, some people are going to take, you know, Catcher in the Rye and they’re going to read Catcher in the Rye and they’re going to be like, “Oh, I’ve got to go kill somebody.” Okay. Well, that’s just because they’re crazy. But when it comes to the youth, it does make a difference. I don’t want more regulation. I don’t want more power. I want the power to remain with the people, and I want the power of the people to be able to go, “You know what? Stephen King is an ass. Stephen King is an idiot. He might write a good book but I don’t need to give him any more money,” you know, or not. Again, I read his books, or used to. I read his boobs. I think he’s a great writer. I like his stuff. I think It’s one of the scariest movies, until you find out it’s a stupid spider, you moron! You make us read 800 pages and you give us a spider in the end?

STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: Man!

PAT: Thank you. That had to be said.

STU: Yeah, no.

PAT: Had to be said.

GLENN: I’m a lifetime member of the NRA and I didn’t even think about picking up a gun and coming and stalk you, my friend. And after 800 pages, you give me a spider. If the NRA membership made me a killer, you’d be long gone, brother.

STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: Spider!

STU: But nobody has a higher opinion of Stephen King than Stephen King.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

STU: I mean, this guy thinks he is the greatest thing ever.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

STU: And he constantly is commenting on topics like this and he’s just a more ‑‑ in his own, in this essay he talks about how it’s the NRA, it’s the people like these that cause these incidents, it’s not the culture. And then he talks about how he pulled his own book off the shelf because it kept popping up at school shootings. It kept popping up with all these violent teenagers and so he pulled ‑‑ I can’t remember, Rage maybe was the name of the book, but he popped ‑‑ he pulled it off the shelf because he was worried about its impact on children.

PAT: Wow.

STU: But the culture isn’t at all a problem.

GLENN: No, uh‑uh.

PAT: And Carrie is like a lullaby. That’s like a lullaby for kids.

GLENN: The Shining? The Shining is great.

PAT: All of these bloodbaths that are just horrifying. Those are just sweet little tales. It’s really the NRA that’s the problem.

GLENN: The Stand. The Stand.

PAT: Mmm‑hmmm.

GLENN: It’s a love story. It’s a love story.

PAT: Mmm‑hmmm.

GLENN: You’d think that this guy would realize, you know, he’s seeing that he wrote The Stand, that he’s practically setting up the kingdom of Vegas. I mean, you’re on the wrong side, Steve. You’re on the wrong side. Come to the other side of the mountains.

STU: No, stay over there. I don’t want you.

GLENN: Yeah, you’re right.

STU: Seriously.

GLENN: I know how it ends. Go over there. We don’t want you.

STU: I don’t remember that book, but ‑‑

GLENN: We should never give up. We love you, Stephen.

STU: Well ‑‑

GLENN: We’d love you over here. We really ‑‑

STU: Well, I don’t know what “over here” means but if “over here” means I have to talk to him in the next 50 years, no thanks.

GLENN: I’d like him to change his mind. I’d like you to ‑‑ I’d like you to find happiness. I’d like you to ‑‑

STU: That’s up to him.

GLENN: I’d like you to find it.

STU: Good luck.

GLENN: You know, there in Maine. Not down here in Texas.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: But if you can find it in Maine ‑‑

STU: E‑mail us.

GLENN: ‑‑ e‑mail us. And I’m hoping before I get that e‑mail, we’re hit by an EMP. I’d rather be foraging for food in garbage cans after an EMP than read your e‑mail saying, “I found Jesus.”

STU: You find that, just ‑‑

GLENN: No, he’s going to find him and it’s going to be great and I wish him all the best of luck in finding Him. Now I’m ‑‑ you know what, Pat?

PAT: Hmmm?

GLENN: We should ‑‑ we should send the boys and bikes over to his house. I know where he lives. We should send the boys. Because I care so much.

PAT: No, I’m sensing some of that from you.

GLENN: We should call ‑‑

PAT: I’m sensing that.

GLENN: We should call every night every time you see one of those commercials on TV, call for your copy, “Hi, I’m Stephen King.”

STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: “I know you guys have come over to my house every day for the last four weeks, but this time…”

PAT: But this time I really want you here. I really want you here. And don’t even listen to me when I say I don’t want you here.

GLENN: Don’t take no for an answer. Come in and sit down.

PAT: I think I might be possessed by demons. So make sure that you just don’t listen to what I’m saying.

GLENN: Please ‑‑

PAT: That’s just the demons talking.

GLENN: Please do it. Please do it.

STU: I’m calling you now because this is my one moment of sobriety for the day.

GLENN: I need help.

STU: When you come, I’m going to be hammered and I’m going to resist. Please, listen.

GLENN: I need your help. Listen. Please, help me, help me. Bring some Catholic priests with you. Bring ‑‑ heck, bring some Jehovah Witnesses with you. Just keep coming to my door.

PAT: I like that.

GLENN: Yeah. See?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That’s ‑‑ and that’s what Jesus taught.

PAT: Right. Yes. Be persistent.

GLENN: He was like, “Don’t give up. Be persistent.” I highly recommend. Get his address. I’m making a call the next time I see the ad.

    Massive hypocrite yes, the simple fact is most politicians of any level are even worse than Stephen King. 

    Yet Glenn remember well the lesson Jesus taught of the Sanhedrin counsel of Israel, he denounced their deeds they did, the ungodliness they performed while appearing to be pious in public. Once corruption settles into a beings heart, mind or soul it can only be rooted out by the power and authority of God and then so long as we ask for His help and work with Him to get it gone.

    Stephen King is one of the greatest writers of our time. Also, if you had read his books you would know (sorry Glenn I understand that literacy is not your strong suit, he writes these things called books, I will spell is out for you B-O-O-K-S) that Stephen King writes more than anything to illuminate those things in humanity that are terrifying and hopefully by the end of the novel it will motivate you to change those things. The Stand, for example, is about a plague that kills almost all of the population of the earth and the few left must stand against evil. The body aka Stand by Me is a short story that is a coming of age story about a group of boys who go to see a dead body and realize that it is not glamorous or fascinating it is horrible and sad. The Shining, is about not only an alcholic and the havoc that he brings upon his family but  also about the tyranny of the weak. The main charachter is a weak man and his weakness makes him more dangerous than any ghost or monster. You know a bit about weakness don’t you Glenn? Stephen King can write so clearly about the damage guns have done to our society because he has a keen insight into human nature. That is what makes him a great writer. Stephen King has never written overtly gory or violent books. He writes character driven stories. What makes the story scary is the fear and weakness in the “every” man. I commend him for speaking his mind. Maybe if your listeners were brighter they would understand this.

    I guess they can’t fix stupid, Mimi and you certainly are broke. It’s very obvious that you really don’t have a clue on what king has written. The books that king write are for money and certainly don’t “illuminate those things in humanity’ other than to make money. Please think before you spew your diatribe and several of his books are gory, so I guess you have a problem of not only reading, but understanding what one read. A hypocrite is exactly that Mimi, and King is a “shining” example of that.

    Stephen King is ok with writing about horror which includes blood, guts and torture. In his opinion, that is ok as long as he can make a buck doing so. As far as anyone else on this planet, we are not allowed the right to protect ourself with a firearm because Mr. King doesn’t like guns. Frankly, I don’t really care what his opinion is. He should stick to writing his books and leave the rest of us alone.

    Success & fame = the power to tell the rest of us what to do? Come on!

    Man, I wish I were as bright as you. :) How many books do you have published? I bet less than Glenn Beck. I have read King, and I like him, but his views on gun control are not going to change mine. Nothing the president or the bureaucrats are proposing would have stopped that CT shooting. Instead of going after CT for having awful mental health laws, the president is pursuing his own agenda to undermine the Constitution. Since you enjoy reading, please go read the Constitution….you might be shocked at some sections, especially those pesky Amendments and that tiny little part about executive orders.

    Stephen King wrote some okay stories, but to say that he is ‘one of the greatest authors of our time’ is beyond laughable.  Are you telling me that someone like King, who seems to be in perpetual adolescence with some of the purile sexual content and gratuitous violence in his books somehow compares to Bradbury, Steinbeck, C.S. Lewis (his fictional works), Orwell, Tolkien?  Then again, anyone who so small-minded that they have to allude to a person’s addictions to make a point is hardly a reliable barometer of intelligence.

    Stephen King doesn’t like guns?  Really?  This from a guy who wrote a whole series called the Gunslinger?

    A lot of people forget that this is the same man who wrote “Shawshank Redemption”, and “Stand By Me”.  Yes he’s been suckered into blaming the NRA.  This is a very emotional issue,  and a lot of people are irrational about it.  He’s got issues.  He can turn out gems of literature,  as well as slop,  and he admits to this.  I saw a lot of evil from common people in my youth.  People would ignore it and go on with their lives.  Here is a man, who put out the stink of evil so that it could be rejected, and instead the world embraced the stench.   You can measure the amount of blood in his novels, but this man also portrayed heroes who persisted against horrors they were cornered by.  I’ve seen things I can’t prove and that you could not comprehend.  In a world where I was surrounded by evil this man portrayed a world which was as evil as the one I’ve known.  If we disregard the supernatural stuff the world is just as evil as he has depicted.  If he’s ever come into contact with that then it’s understandable that he can be a little irrational.  This man’s work helped me through dangerous times in my life.  When I was cornered I chose to emulate the heroes that he had invented.  I am grateful to this man, and while you can have contempt for his opinions,  you have to limited of an experience in life to speak about who this man is.  He is good man who has been through a lot.

    Stephen King wrote a book called “The Rage” that details step by step how a school shooter goes to work.  One could literally read the book as a how to do a school shooting.

    If it were not for America’s “gun mentality”, we would be speaking some other foreign language (Russian, Chinese, German … ).  Growing up in the rural South Central Texas panhandle in the late 1940s and 1950s on the family farm, we never thought about shooting or killing anyone intentionally.  It was always outsiders (city or out of state) idiots that caused trouble.  Yes, we had a few wierd locals but nothing serious back then.  There were several movies made that said it all.  My dad and his brothers, all WWII veterans, always had a loaded shotgun and .22 rifle along with a 45 caliber revolver pistol hanging on the old pickup gun rack. We had all sorts of snakes and wild varments to watch out for.  My use of weapons as a kid came in handy from 1967 to 1968 as I became a hit man for Uncle Sam’s canoe club in a far and distant land fighting the communist.  I never forgot movies such as “Sergeant York” and “To Hell And Back”.  They made us aware that being killed was real.  US Navy vet, 1966-1969, Hospitalman, FMF Corpsman “Doc”, Pharmacist Mate: the “Big E” (CVN-64), the USS Repose (AH-16) the USS Lexington (CVS-16); Anchors Aweigh, Semper Fi; God Bless America.

    The blaring stupidity of this author going after the NRA as a source of gun violence either indicates his fantastic immagination and intellect has cracked or he has sucum to political pressure of the ‘Pigs’ from Animal Farm.  He has plumbed the depths of the capacity of the fallen human soul for darkness and then goes and expresses his own vast copacity for ignorance.  Fork don’t make people fat, cows don’t destroy the ozone, and laws about gun ownership will not cure the darkness of the human soul. 

    If he really wanted to help stop gun violence, he should start writing more books like The Stand, pointing the way to sprirtual belief and self regulating morals of faith. 

    Stephen, if you dare to browse through the comments and this article, I would implore you to recognize the futility of government control of anything and stop blaming a group who defends gun rights and promotes responsible gun ownership.  Do you know anything about prohibition?  Will you next blame car manufacturers for bad manered people driving stupid and killing someone.  Do you blame makers of adult beverages for alcoholics?  Was it their fault that you struggled with alcohol in your past? 

    Come on, man!  You were brilliant once!

    Seriously?!  You use this occasion to bash Glen and portray your own keen insight?

    Sthe stand was about God vs Evil and the fact that WE MUST MAKE CHOICES concerning our partipation or colusion with good or evil.  And in the end, the evil is not vanquished, just diminished with a new start.  Cell is not overly gory?  Carrie was not violent?  Duma Key was not about pure horor and evil, and evil wins? 

    I am a listener and I am not stupid.  I read nearly 100 books a year from a large array of subjects.  I have two degrees and am working on a third.  I can discus science, art, poetry, music, history, and nature with the best of them.  The hypocrisy of Stephen blaming a group and agreeing with the popular meme for the very thing he writes about with his ‘keen insight’ is astounding.  The fact that you don’t recognize what is going n and instead attack one of the few people pointing out the dangers facing us is also astounding.  Since you are obviously so very well read and have watched some of King’s great movies, I would strongly recommend a book called Animal Farm which you should be able to read in about four hours and a movie called ‘V For Vendetta’  wich on the surface is a B grade science fiction of the very near future but underneath is a desperately alarming wake up call. 

    Instead of getting all liberal and angry at what I have written, I would encourage you to demonstrate the greatness of character that most liberals I talk to claim they possess and look at what I have shared with you with an open mind.  Gun control will end like Prohibition.  Stupid at its best.  This is all about control and Utopia, not about stopping gun violence (the Obama admin has less gun violence prosecution than any preceding admin in the last 50 years) 

    Human morals and a return to faith and morals, standards outside and beyond the individual and a society that holds thes up as the best will cause a change.  A society the no longer tolerates the expression of hate and violence as great.  Look at music personalities, media types, video games, and other public figures who get rich while they promote evil. 

    Looking forward to hearin from you if you can carry on an intellegent conversation.  If all you want to do is bash, I have better things to do, like pick my nose or fart.

    Pretty standard stuff, yes?  If you don’t want illegal aliens to get a free pass….you’re a racist.  If you don’t think birth control should be paid for by religious organizations you hate women. If you’re against raising taxes on anyone including the rich, you hate poor people. So it follows, that if you are an organization that teaches gun safety and opposes gun control laws that infringe on the constitution….well, obviously you are actually promoting violence.  Then by comparison to the NRA, we should lock up all of Hollywood and throw away the key.  Ya know…every time I hear one of these leftist bobbleheads start muttering away with absolute disregard of fact, truth, and evidence I feel like I’m about to have a ‘scanners’ moment.

    Hello ct.  I just wish to heap praise.  No, not for a reason you might expect, although your response was a good one.  I will however, step aside from the fray and commend you on a brilliant turn around.  I perform them often myself, so far to only personal acclaim.  To have written such an educated response with an impressive resume and ice the cake with a phrase like “better things to do, like pick my nose or fart.” is inspired. : )  It’s what I like to call a literary pratfall; a written equivalent of walking into a glass door.  Oh, and by the way, I would advise not holding your breath. Mimi and her ilk only become enraged when confronted with the truth…especially hypocrisy.

    In 1999 when King was hit by a van, I never heard of him proposing a ban of all motor vehicles.  But I did hear that the driver was found dead the next year.

    Shouldn’t guns be treated the same?

    King is just another limousine liberal who can’t stand it when their ox get gored. Good job Glenn!

    Murder, drugs, and driving while intoxicated are already illegal. These laws do nott seem to slow down the ones who want to kill or get high.  Guns don’t commit murder, people do. I can think of three good reasons to keep our right to bear arms even if we don’t need to shoot…yet. 1. to protect ourselves from a voracious federal government that wants to strip us of our freedoms, 2. so that if an enemy invades our country, they can be nervous in the knowledge that even grannies and kindergarten teachers may be armed, and 3. If someone is attacking you, you don’t have to say…”wait while I call 911 and get some help here.”  You can actually even the odds and shoot when they break down your door.

     King is no longer a good writer. His writing the last 6 to 8 years has been sub-par. His ending to the movie “The Myst” based on his book, was just awful. The main character murdered his son and 4 other people, when if he had waited one minute, they all would have been rescued; don’t watch it.

  • Shane

     Yes, I agree; I do not watch any movies or TV shows with the obnoxious Sean Penn or Danny Glover. However, we conservatives should go to the few movies and watch TV shows that support our values.

  • Shane

     Wrong, June. There are some good movies out there, and we should find them and patronize them. How about seeing “Zero Dark Thirty” about the hunt for Osama bin Laden which is out now?

    Dean Koontz is a much better writer than King is, especially lately. Read some of Dean Koontz’s excellent books, such as The Odd Thomas series, “The Watcher,” and “One Door Away from Heaven.”

    King is just a follower and has eaten up the propaganda thrown out by gun control groups just hours after Sandy Hook. Ironically Connecticut has an assault weapons ban modeled after Feinstein’s definition of an assault weapon. Where is the attack on the elected CT officials or her majesty? Using Progressive logic how do you not hold them responsible?

    Did anyone mention that you have to buy King’s essay and all proceeds are going to the Brady Campaign? The Brady Campaign was the big winner in all of this. They were down to their last $4, 000 during the Nov elections.

    Do you think Glenn Beck books are written by Glenn Beck?

    My brother was a penpal with King before he was famous and my brother was a lifer in the Navy,. King was struggling then and somehow forgot his roots. I remember his wife writng back to my brother with so muc excitement that they were going to make a movie out of one of his books and it would help them through the hard times..the movie was “Carrie!” Looks lke he has moved to the far left from one of those days. My brother passed on and if he was here today would be so disappointed to find out that King thinks only people who can’t read join the military! My brother was in the Sercret Intelligence Branch of the Navy, he didnt get there by not reading.

    King is a legend in his own sick mind. He is on a ego trip. He throws money at UMO and some other non profits and they act like he is a God. 
     He also wanted revenge on the driver that hit him when he was out for his run.
     The ready person he is does shows up every now and than. His  temper!!

    “Guns” is available for Kindle for a buck.  Didn’t buy it after I found out about it.  Many other did not, as well.

    That’s the one thing Libtards have in common. They are liars and they are the worst hypocrites – funnily enough they share another common trait – they are too stupid to even see it! Stephen King’s books are bloodbaths and he doesn’t think THAT could influence a young mind? Oh no, just guns. You flaming idiot! Why don’t we ban knives, forks, rope, shovels, ice picks, kabob sticks  - anything that could kill someone. Let’s just have a big clean-up folks and get rid of anything harmful. Libtards are what is harmful to this country, nothing else! They are a joke. A pathetic one, but nonetheless, a joke. They have not a shred of common sense and have the biggest mouths that absolutely nothing with substance comes forth. Un-freaking-believable! If that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black then I don’t know what is. He must be a true friend of Al Gore. Another lying hypocrite. Well folks, stop buying his books – they all sound the same now anyway. Boring….

    I won’t, thanks. I stopped reading King a long time ago.

    Waste of a bullet don’t cha think? Many other ways of getting rid of books, burning it comes to mind. Nazis saved their bullets they just burned them.

    OK Glenn Beck IMO is full on crazy and never agree with anything he says. However, Beck does have a point. I’m a SK fan but his books are violent and filled with murder. So it’s definitely hypocritical.

    More fun that way and sends a message that we will keep our guns no matter what the moron said.

    Well don’t you know that HIS ( and all other liberal hypocrites like him ) free speech ( which includes all debased and decadent “art” ) is FAR more important than anybody elses so called rights? At this rate, we all will be a part of the next Stephen King horror novel…”Obama’s Cemetary”.

     I have stopped going to movies. I hate to jump up feeling for the isle in the middle of a movie, knowing how much I paid to sit there. They got me a couple of times that way. It’s a heck of a lot cheaper to just slide the disc back into the envelope, go to my Netflix account and give the movie my rating, then block it from ever coming back to my home.

    This is why I hate hearing the truth about the people I enjoy. Unfortunately I would rather not hear about my favorite authors and actors. My bubble does not want to be popped. I do not really care what these people think. The Stand was his best. I really wish they would stick to what they do best.

  • Goddard

    I guess Beck doesn’t see a difference between real violence and fictitious violence. 

  • fred savage

    no
    GUNS= the power to tell people what to do.
    Mr.king is expressing an opinion, a right which is given to him by the same constitution that gives you the right to keep military grade weapons next to your vacuum cleaner.

  • fred savage

    you created stephen king? did you help him write any of his 50 best sellers? if you have read any of his books you will know what an incredibly talented  man he is even if we disagree with his personal opinion.. we are expected to listen to the opinions of a nobody such as yourself right here but not of a man who has an obvious talent for observation.. does the fact hendrix was a heroin addict change the fact he played a mean guitar? as bill hicks once said “shut up and listen to him play”

    I never said he didn’t have the right to express his opinion (according to the constitution). I said he has no problem with depicting the same thing in his movies and books glorifying such things, and might I add making lots of money off of it. That makes him a hypocrite. You know someone who speaks out of both sides of their mouth.
