Every generation has one: The celebrity that eschews their fame in order to pursue a life of political activism.
The only problem with these sort of limelight-addicted lunatics is that it’s still about the attention. When the transition is made from entertainment to politicking, they are simply shifting the focus of their attention from something flippant and fun to something vitriolic, personal, and offensive by nature.
Thanks to the duality of American politics, former talkshow host Chelsea Handler transition into the political realm was very simple: Oppose the President and then profit. That’s really all it takes with the left radicalizing at such a rapid rate in America today.
And, of course, Handler felt the need to weigh in on the gun rights debate after the tragic Kentucky school shooting earlier this week. Her liberal logic is unbearably difficult to unwrap.
“Days after the heinous school shooting in Marshall County, Kentucky, Chelsea Handler blamed the NRA and warned students: ‘Don’t go to school if you don’t want to get shot.’
“Handler’s comments on the Marshall County High School shooting were issued in response to President Donald Trump’s consoling comments to the families of those killed and wounded in the January 23 incident.
“Handler has repeatedly attacked legal gun owners following tragic shootings.
“In November, the Netflix talk show host blamed ‘Republicans’ for a shooting at a Texas church that claimed the lives of 24 people, and previously claimed that gun ownership is a ‘hobby’ that should be restricted.
“’We’re way behind the times in terms of gun control in this country, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere anytime soon,’ Handler told the Hollywood Reporter in June, days before being honored at the anti-gun Brady Center’s Bear Awards. ‘Our voices just need to keep getting louder, and the people that make an impact need to really just step up and stick their necks out a little bit more.’”
It doesn’t take a scholar to understand Handler’s severe lack of qualifications for this conversation, but the millennial muck stuck to the bottom of the democratic shoe doesn’t realize this at all.
For the left in America, it is not a matter of logic or history, it is a matter of emotion and equalization. Chelsea Handler is a living, breathing, and, unfortunately talking piece of proof.
