“Madonna makes powerful gun control statement in disturbing music video: ‘We need to wake up’,” Yahoo! Entertainment’s Music Editor writes. “[H]er new clip for “God Control” … may be her most shocking — and important — yet.”
The video recreates a scene right out of the Pulse nightclub murders and goes heavy on the simulated death. As in the original slayings, which were committed in a “gun-free zone,” no one appears equipped to defend themselves. Whether the killer in Madonna’s video is also a registered Democrat is unclear.
“This is your wake up call,” the singer now presenting herself as “Madame X” tells her Instagram followers. “Gun violence disproportionately affects children, teenagers and the marginalized in our communities. Honor the victims and demand GUN CONTROL. NOW. Volunteer, stand up, donate, reach out. Wake up and insist on common-sense gun safety legislation. Innocent lives depend on it. Join me in supporting the following organizations…”
She goes on to name the usual suspects, from Bloomberg’s Everytown and Marx… uh…March for Our Lives down to some obscure groups few have heard of. Curiously, some of the majors, the Bradys, the Demanding Moms, and Gungrabby Gabby are left out, making it fair to wonder if it’s intentional. More likely, “Madge” (she used to go by that back when she was affecting a British accent and “murdering” pheasants until she became convinced their dead souls would come back to haunt her) has noticed a few of the players and now assumes herself to be an authority.
Such is the “common sense” from someone demanding “GUN CONTROL. NOW.” Funny thing is, Madonna didn’t seem to have a problem apparently violating New York state and City edicts in order to make a fashion statement with designer shoes.
This is hardly the Immaterial Girl’s first foray into citizen disarmament advocacy. She was one of the celebrity signatories of a Handgun Control, Inc. (that’s what the Brady Campaign called itself before they figured it would be smarter to hide their true intentions) “Open Letter to the NRA.”
In it, she and the other stage props called for all kinds of infringements—from waiting periods to bans on semiautomatic firearms, one-gun-a-month limits and more.
“We are not gun haters,” they assured us. They’re just fine with using the coercive power of the state (meaning they can shoot you if you disobey them) to impose infringements on you, just so long as their precious hindquarters are protected.
Case in point: What happened when an “undocumented” intruder attempted to “migrate” over the wall and into Madonna’s Hollywood Hills estate some years back?
“Wake up,” indeed.
Check out Madonna’s “God Control” below, and doesn’t the presumptuousness of that title just about tell you everything you need to know? The good news is, even Parkland’s Emma González calls it “f**ked up.”
