Sometimes the hypocrisy overwhelms me.

The shooting at a Newtown grade school came just months after July’s deadly “Dark Knight Rises” shooting in a theater in Aurora, Colo. Filmmakers and actors used their celebrity to plead for change on Twitter.

“Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation? No, too late,” tweeted “Bowling for Columbine” director Michael Moore. “At least THIRTY-ONE school shootings since Columbine.”

Hot Air has a Blog Post today that pretty much sums up the double speak we are hearing now in the aftermath of Newtown:

Moore, who always pretends he isn’t filthy rich, can afford to hire armed protection (does this count as being “obsessed with guns”) yet doesn’t believe in allowing those less fortunate than him to protect themselves with firearms. The hypocrisy is hurting my head. Since the tragedy in Connecticut last week, Michael Moore has been demanding more gun control.

UPDATE: Here is a more recent video of Michael Moore and his gun hypocrisy from 2008. Moore explains that he owns a gun because he opened a bank account and in return received a free gun. He then proceeds to say he wants to raffle it off for a good cause. Why? He doesn’t need it because he has security. He had it then and he has it now.
