WELL WELL WELL . . . Uncle Stormy did a little Internet data-mining and looky what surfaced:
Another hypocritical actor in today’s anti-gun scene: ex-rapper and underwear model turned actor Marky-Mark Wahlberg (friend of Uber-Liberal George Clooney).
One of the more well known incidents of Wahlberg’s assaults at Mr. Heston took place back in 2000, at the MTV movie awards show where Mark Wahlberg (on stage with, Clooney) was presenting the honor for “Best Villain.” In front of the live audience (and the entire world) Marky-Mark stated, “I believe Charlton Heston is America’s best villain because he loves guns so much. Maybe he should get the award for being president of the National Rifle Association.”
Wahlberg, a repeatedly arrested teenage convicted felon, bad mouthed a champion of gun rights while portraying and glorifying gun slinging characters in films like “Planet of the Apes,” “Shooter,” “Three Kings” and “Max Payne.”
Wahlberg, in the April 26th, 2007 issue of Herald Sun: “I’d like to see if we could take them (guns) all away. It would be a beautiful thing.” Wahlberg attempted to clarify his movie gun-use: “I haven’t used a gun anywhere other than on a movie set.” Do as I say not as I do.
Pitiful . . . and a shame, too . . . I actually liked Mark's work, thought he was the real deal . . . I guess it's OK for him to glorify guns & violence in the movies - that's just what he does for the Almighty Dollar . . . then he absolves himself by taking swipes at an old man suffering from Alzheimer's . . . turns out Mark Wahlberg is just another frikkin Hollyweird Liberal hypocrite . . . like all the rest of them . . . I wonder if he has armed personal bodyguards like his pal Clooney?
Shame Shame Shame
