Obama keeps Hollywood out of his gun-grabbing crosshairs


This morning, President Obama climbed up onto his high and mighty soapbox to deliver his gun-grabbing recommendations. Among his 23 executive actions was a call on the Centers for Disease Control to “research the causes and prevention of gun violence,” including the effects of violent video games. But, somehow, he managed to overlook another major purveyor of glorified violence: Hollywood.

#Obama spoke not a word about #Hollywood #Violence and #Brutality!!!

Given President Obama’s love of political theater, it should come as no surprise that he’s got a soft spot for Hollywood, but many conservatives couldn’t help but wonder why he isn’t targeting Tinseltown for a crackdown:

I like how Obama completely ignored hollywood violence during his executive order rant this morning. #tcot #letsnotupsettheoneswithmoney

@adamsbaldwin how come Obama is going after video games but not Hollywood for making violent content?

Obama setting up task force on video game violence, but not on Hollywood movies?#specialinterests @richardgrenell

OBAMA wants to study video games, but not violent MOVIES? would hate to hurt Hollywood

#Guncontrol Why besides lecturing law-abiding gun owners, #Obama didn’t ask his #Hollywood supporters restrain violence promotion in movies?

And where’s the media outcry?

Why isn’t the media criticizing Obama for giving all that Hollywood violence a pass today? Oh, yeah, cuz that was all a con to grab guns.

How can Obama & media say Hollywood contributes to culture of violence and then do nothing about it? THEY’VE BETRAYED THE CHILDREN!

— John Nolte(@NolteNC) January 16, 2013

How can they do nothing? It’s quite easy, actually.

@noltenc Obama gets a great deal of money from Hollywood!

— Paul Shea (@pmkcshea) January 16, 2013

@noltenc @domeniconbc Hollywood gave too much money to Obama’s campaigns to be expected to curb on-screen violence. They paid 4 O’s silence

@joenbc Like Obama will do anything to the Hollywood actors who help him get elected.Double standard all the time.Cash is king.

— John Powers(@mulpwr) January 16, 2013

Indeed. The bundler in chief needs to keep that cash coming in, so he’ll do whatever it takes to keep Hollyweird happy.

I wonder if @barackobama will regulate Quentin Tarantino.

We wouldn’t hold our breath.
