Fox News fails to recognize the difference between real life and the movies.

So Fox News recently went after actress Jamie Lee Curtis in the dumbest way ever. 

Courtesy of Fox News:

In the 11th installment of the horror film series, Jamie Lee Curtis’s character, Laurie Strode, is seen wielding firearms in her quest to kill the film’s legendary villain, Michael Myers.

At one point, she shoots him as he’s standing in front of a window.

But Curtis’s on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control — one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set.

In light of several high-profile mass shootings, Curtis has voiced her support for gun reform legislation. But she’s also appeared in films such as “True Lies,” “Virus,” “Halloween II” and “Blue Steel” where she uses firearms multiple times.

In order to drive their point home Fox included some tweets from Curtis in their story. 


Now you will notice that Curtis is calling for a ban on assault weapons in the real world, NOT in movies. Where, by the way, they fire blanks so as to keep everybody safe. 

Is it possible that Fox News simply can no longer tell the difference between reality and make-believe now that we have a TV actor living in the White House? 

Or did they simply think they smelled blood in the water and thought they had a legitimate line of attack against one of those Hollywood types that are always using their fame to promote messages that conservatives don’t like? 

I am not sure which one is more accurate, but clearly, the brain trust at Fox News is a little light in the grey matter. 

Which is essentially what Curtis herself pointed out in her response to this idiocy.

Courtesy of HuffPo:

The actor described the online article, which said her “on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control,” as “just silly” in an interview with USA Today published Wednesday.

She accused the conservative network of “trying to make a point without ever asking me what I really think.” She added: “If I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever.”

Curtis acknowledged she wants assault weapons and bump stocks to be banned.

But she said she fully supports the Second Amendment and has “absolutely no problem with people owning firearms if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place.”

Well said. 

Now to make a further point acting in, or even watching, violent movies, with guns, cannons, and even nuclear weapons does not mean that you want those to be easily accessed in the real world that we all share. 

I myself have a large movie collection which includes war movies, horror movies, martial arts movies, superhero movies, you name it. 

None of that means that I am a warmonger, believe in the supernatural, think using martial arts training to kick everybody’s ass is okay, or would support an individual dressing up in spandex to act as a vigilante.

I also do not actually believe that Leanardo DeCaprio went down with the Titanic, that Arnold Schwarzenegger is part android or that all dogs actually go to heaven. 

I have what is called critical thinking skills, and I can tell the difference between what is real, and what is fantasy. 

That’s why I don’t watch Fox News to get actual news. 

Because everything on that network is pure fantasy.

    OT-FYI
    Bundy is slated to headline the “Code of the West” conference, a one-day conclave dedicated to “cleaning out corruption from the Crooked Corral.”
    The event appears to be something of a coming-out party for the organization — as well as one of the biggest gatherings of political extremists across the American West in months.
    While Bundy has taken top billing, he’ll be joined by Jeanette Finicum, the wife of deceased militant LaVoy Finicum. Jeanette Finicum will be screening a movie about her husband, who was killed by federal agents in early 2016 while reaching for his gun. The movie, according to This West is OUR West, will detail the “dreamy life and epic death of one of the last Wild West American cowboys.” “Bundys’ prior efforts — that hasn’t gotten much attention: anti-Native American rhetoric and outright white supremacy when it comes to relations with tribal governments.”

    I am not a gun nut but if Michael Myers was coming after me with one of my those huge butcher knives I would start channeling my inner Rambo ASAP.
