“Defund the Police” Alyssa Milano has offered unsolicited advice to anti-maskers in a swipe at gun owners.
“Anti-maskers are the same people who think they need an AR-15 for ‘protection.”
This was followed by her “shouting to the bleachers” in an apparent attempt to make herself better heard, writing,
“LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK: A MASK WILL PROTECT YOU *MORE* THAN AN AR-15 WILL.”
Conflating questionable protections against COVID-19 with the effectiveness of guns as a deterrent against an aggressive assailant, is false equivalence.
The logical fallacy may have garnered Milano attention, but her use of it isn’t impressive.
For me, Milano’s appeal to faulty logic joins the “either/or” Joebama train of fear, election campaign which preached the falsehood of “vote for me or face certain death at the hands of COVID, climate change, racists and Nazis, man!”
This also furthers serious concerns about how COVID-19 is being used by the Leftist “elite” to expand their influence, control and financial power base.
Further to this, surely her anti-gun rant inadvertently equates gun-toting criminals with a virus, and therefore comes under the Leftist banner of “hate speech”, intolerance, bigotry and fascism?
Noting Milano’s hypocrisy in high definition, The Daily Wire referenced a Fox News piece from September reporting Milano’s reliance on local police.
According to Fox, Police were called by Milano’s neighbour because said neighbour was concerned about a “a man dressed in all black, walking in the woods between our properties with a gun.”
Milano’s husband then rang the police in order to ‘find out when they were arriving.’
The gun toting man turned out to be a ‘hunter stalking squirrels with an air rifle.’
Entering 2021, be sure not to overlook the hypocrisy.
The lived-out message from our would-be overlords hasn’t changed:
There’s one rule for those who wish to rule us, another for those they wish to rule.
Come the zombie apocalypse or anything close in equivalence, be assured of this fact: following any celebrity’s advice outside exceptions like Denzel Washington in ‘The Book of Eli’, will prove to be as stupid a move, as Hollywood’s spate of unoriginal, “avant-garde” films, that drip with all the trimmings of California’s Radical Leftist social engineering industrial complex.
