One rock n roll legend sent one woke message that will have you asking this big question

Feb 22, 2024

Celebrities love to stick their noses into politics.

They think their fame and wealth makes them experts on every issue.

And one rock n roll legend sent one woke message that will have you asking this big question.

John Cougar Mellencamp’s working-class, Midwest rock thrilled fans since the 80s.

But the signer of “Jack And Diane” is woefully uninformed about current events and the debate over the Second Amendment.

Mellencamp was one of the many leftists who couldn’t wait to exploit the tragedy in Kansas City, where gunmen wounded 22 and killed one innocent at the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory parade after an argument turned deadly.

In a post on social media following the shooting, Mellencamp posted that the news media needed to start posting the photos of dead children following mass shootings to shock Americans into supporting letting the government ban and confiscate their firearms.

“Excuse me for stating the obvious truth.  I do so out of love for this country and the pain of learning, once again, that children have been killed by gun violence. If we as a country want to find the collective will within ourselves to change our gun laws, let’s stop playing silly political games,” Mellencamp began.

“Show the American people the dead children and others who have been struck down.  Show us what guns and bullets can do to the human body,” Mellencamp added.

Mellencamp said the press needed to take a playbook out of the days of the Vietnam War, when journalists began promoting North Vietnamese propaganda by publishing the pictures of dead American soldiers to sap support for the war in the United States.

“When I was a teenager, there was a war in Vietnam.  In the beginning, no one paid much attention to this problem in a foreign land until the media shouldered the responsibility and showed America how our sons were being slaughtered.  Once those images were shown on TV, there was overwhelming demand for that  war to be ended immediately,” Mellencamp continued.

“Show America the carnage. I am not being callous, and I know it will be painful to see.  But, sad to say, I think it’s the only way to shock America out of its stupor,” Mellencamp concluded.

But gun grabbers like John Cougar Mellencamp never let facts get in their way of their ideological crusade to disarm every American.

Police arrested several suspects in the Kansas City shooting.

Two were juveniles.

It was already illegal for them to possess firearms.

The laws on the books should have been sufficient to prevent this shooting, and any calls for new gun control are transparently political attempts to exploit this tragedy for political gain.
