With the death of Charlton Heston the other day, I started looking up some things about the man. I wanted to write something about him and ended up with my post about Mr. Heston last week.
But when you are looking up information on Charlton Heston, you run into some problems. Well, much of what is reported in the news is reported by individuals that tend to be very liberal themselves.
So, Charlton Heston having long fought to defend Americans' gun rights from Americans determined to destroy the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution without using the due process of law, naturally raised the ire of liberal/progressive people who think that guns are inherently evil.
I came across many articles quoting none other than the much-loved George Clooney in comments he made about Charlton Heston.
See, Mr. Heston spent the last years of his life fighting Alzheimer's disease.
That's sad, but it is common.
What isn't common is the way Scumbag George Clooney made fun of Charlton Heston's Alzheimer's when George was accepting an award.
As reported at World New Daily from January of 2003:
In receiving a special film making achievement award from the National Board of Reviews, actor George Clooney joked that "Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering from Alzheimer's."
Clooney still had a chance to apologize for the bad humor day. When questioned about the remark by New York Newsday, Clooney sputtered: "I don't care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National Rifle Association. He deserves whatever anyone says about him."
I have always kinda liked George Clooney even though I knew he was really way out there liberal. He always seemed rather soft-spoken and respectful, despite his way left story telling in his movies.
Plus, even for a man, it's hard to dislike someone as handsome as George Clooney. Even us guys understand that George Clooney is a really good looking man.
But Mr. Clooney lost me with that quote. That's just stinkin' evil, to make fun of a man's Alzheimer's and then when questioned on the statement, defend himself by saying Mr. Heston deserved it because he worked with the National Rifle Association.
For me, George Clooney will be henceforth and evermore spoken of as Scumbag George Clooney.
I'm sure Scumbag George Clooney will be severely upset when he finds out about my views on him, but that's ok. I'm bigger than him, and despite my bad back, I'm sure I could take him in a fight.
There is a legal way to amend the US Constitution, but liberals know that they would never be able to pass an amendment to the Constitution banning privately owned guns, so they try to chip away at it here and there through the actions of activist judges like the cowards they are.
Scumbag George Clooney has also publicly endorsed Barack Obama for President of the US. That is yet another good reason in the growing list of reasons that Barack Obama should not be elected President.
When evil famous horse's behinds like Scumbag George Clooney want you to be President, that cannot be a good thing. (I know it's not Obama's fault that Scumbag George Clooney endorses him.)
And Scumbag George? You and me, buddy. Any time. Any place. Messing up your hair is the least I could do for Mr. Heston. (Though weekends are better for me since I have to work for a living.)
