We all know, and figured out long ago, that those beautiful people that populate the fairytale land of Hollyweird lost touch with reality long ago. But it still amazes me when something comes up that really hammers that point home (Rosie O'Donnell does this daily so it doesn't amaze me anymore when her mouth spouts out idiotic things), and when it is so contradictory to what they claim they believe, yet they are so far gone into la-la land that they don't even recognize the hypocrisy.
This latest installment of "How Hollyweird Once Again Proves Its Lack of a Grip on Reality" is brought to you by an article brought to my attention by Night Rider. The article fueling this post is at Newsbusters.org.
Julia Roberts, that sweet girl that first gained our love and respect by playing a whore in Pretty Woman, recently provided her voice for the role of Charlotte in the recent movie version of Charlotte's Web. Apparently as a result of being in the movie, Julia has found a soft spot in her heart for spiders (along with puppies, kittens, baby seals, spotted owls, Kangaroo Rats, trees, and convicted murderers).
I've been saying this for years, in regards to animal rights activists who just so happen to be against the death penalty and pro-choice. "Save the puppy, show compassion for the convicted remorseless serial killer, but kill the baby."
Before we get into a huge abortion debate, like we did over my last abortion post (Friday, November 10th: The impact of abortion on our moral values in politics and society) let's look at this rationally. How can anyone say something like Julia Roberts did in regards to spiders on Good Morning America (December 13, 2006) "You think, that's a person, or somebody's Mom or somebody's best pal." and yet still celebrate a woman's right to terminate the life of an unborn child (remember, most of these kooks support abortion up to full term) and protest the death of a convicted murderer via the death penalty.
It just makes no sense to me.
Save the spider. Kill the baby.
Shouldn't it be, get a shoe and squash the spider, but please don't murder another unborn child?
