There are two ways to cast a movie. You bring in professional actors and have them read, or you go out and hire “real people” for the parts.
The second way is sometimes used for the cameos.
That’s the case with the completely insane arrests, school suspensions, and general harassment leveled at kids and parents who “are guilty of” toy guns, fingers shaped like guns, pictures of guns, guns that make bubbles.
Here’s how it works.
The networks cover these stories, and they interview people in the community who say:
“Well, I think the suspension from school was a little too harsh. Of course, Jimmy shouldn’t have brought the bubble gum gun to school, but the authorities went overboard…”
“Other children in the class were frightened and that’s not good…”
“The schools have a hard job these days, after the Newtown shooting. Everybody is on edge…”
“Mickey is a good boy. I’m sure he meant no harm with the water pistol. But bringing it to school not the thing to do…”
These are all supposed to be rational comments and reactions.
Of course, they aren’t. They’re the words of total idiots.
If Jimmy brings a screen saver of a gun to his school, SO WHAT?
If Mike has a little plastic gun that makes bubbles, SO WHAT?
Ah, but if the sane people who would come right out and say SO WHAT and get very angry about it don’t exist anymore, then where are we?
But you see, those sane people do exist. They are many of them in the communities where the lunatics in charge are pursuing this wacko agenda.
THE NETWORKS AREN’T INTERVIEWING THOSE SANE PEOPLE.
