The leftist hacks at CNN are apparently annoyed that country music singers choose not to exploit the Las Vegas massacre to virtue-signal or further their own political agendas.
In an inane article entitled “After Vegas massacre, country music artists largely stay out of gun debate,” CNN writer Deena Zaru noted that “most [country] artists have avoided talking politics or directly addressing the gun debate.”
We wonder why Zaru doesn’t call out Muslims who refuse to condemn radical Islamic terrorism. Or why she hasn’t asked rappers to address gun violence in inner cities.
Deena Zaru might also want to ask why there are hardly any shootings at country music concerts given that many concertgoers are probably legal gun owners.
Interestingly, the cities with the most gun violence such as Chicago, St. Louis, and Baltimore are run by Democrats and have the strictest gun-controls laws in the United States. Hmmm…
Or better yet, why has CNN not asked why Hollywood hypocrites refuse to condemn mega-producer Harvey Weinstein for his decades of sexual abuse? Those are some better questions.
It’s no surprise that many country music stars are probably Second-Amendment advocates. But it’s also no surprise that they avoid politicizing horrific tragedies like the October 1 Las Vegas shooting. Why? Because they’re performers, not politicians. Duh.
Singer John Rich (of the duo Big and Rich) performed at the Route 91 Festival on the night of Stephen Paddock’s shooting rampage. He has slammed liberal hyenas who politicize the shooting to promote their anti-gun agendas.
“I’ve heard some people try to politicize this whole thing, which is just about the most disgusting thing I’ve ever heard of,” Rich said. “Music is maybe the only thing out there [that’s no longer political].”
John Rich is a Trump supporter, but he doesn’t shove his political views down anyone’s throats. Why? Because he believes his job as a performer is to provide an escape away from all that ugly divisiveness.
“I used to think it was music and sports, but now sports is divisive,” Rich said. “So now it’s really music. It’s one of the last common denominators that we all have. We can all enjoy that song or that concert together and stop arguing about everything. We just listen and have a good time.”
Meanwhile, Twitter dragged CNN for its idiotic demand that country music singers influence gun-control laws and shape public opinion about it.
I'll take, Because music has nothing to do with politics? For 100

Because they know they are entertainers and not policy makers. Others should follow their lead.

The response to tragedy should be unity & love. CNN pushing division is gross.

In contrast, classless celebritards & democrats jumped at the opportunity 2 pile on the NRA and white men. Curious, no mention of Weinstein
