(RightIsRight.co) – Popular podcaster Joe Rogan has called out the “hypocrisy” of Hollywood in standing against gun rights while at the same time the film industry “promotes guns more than any other media.”
Rogan was interviewing comedian Tim Dillon on his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, when he blasted Hollywood for its anti-gun campaigning while its films and TV series have been “glorifying” gun violence.
“Isn’t it f****g wild that Hollywood, in general, is very anti-gun, but they promote guns more than any other media on the planet?” asked the libertarian podcaster.
“All their best movies, whether it’s The Gray Man, or whether you’re watching The Terminal List or Mission Impossible. It’s all — ‘guns save the day.’ Guns kill aliens, guns kill werewolves, guns kill everyone. Everyone bad gets killed by guns,” Rogan argued, as cited by Breitbart News.
He pointed out that parallel to that, Hollywood celebrities are complaining about gun violence and telling Americans that “guns are bad and you shouldn’t have guns.”
Rogan and his guest then took to exposing another of Hollywood’s alleged “hypocrisies” – the one about climate change.
Dillon hammered on how film industry elites enjoy flying in private jets and living in gigantic mansions while preaching to American families about climate change-conscious policies.
“These are also the same people that live in these 20,000 square-foot homes and fly private jets but talk endlessly about climate change. The same people,” the comedian declared.
He then suggested that the discrepancy between what the Hollywood elites do and what they preach may result from the fact that they are getting paid enormous sums of money to “play pretend.”
“[They view themselves] as something completely different than what other people see and your behavior as something that’s completely different,” Dillon stated.
“They don’t view that as hypocrisy. They view it as like, ‘Yeah, guns are bad, but we can make them good,'” he added.
“That’s literally the way they think — ‘Guns are not good, but in our hands, they’re great because we can craft a narrative that makes them justified to have,'” Dillon argued further.
