Bette Midler: Gun owners aren't the wind beneath my wings

Out: Kochtopus. In: Gun owners.

Apparently Bette Midler enjoyed Twitchy’s coverage of her Koch-spiracy nuttiness so much, she’s back for more. On the agenda today: gun control.

This isn’t the first time The Divine Miss Gun Grabber has brought up gun control in the wake of the horrific Aurora murders. Like fellow celebs John Leguizamo, Rob Schneider and Henry Winkler, Midler ghoulishly politicized the tragedy mere hours after it occurred.

Today she admits gun owners “have rights,” but laments that those pesky rights compete with the “right not to be shot and killed while sitting peacefully in a theater.” Quite the deep thinker, this one.

The Twitterverse stepped up to school Midler on her gun control logic.

What say you, Ms. Midler? Back to blaming the Koch brothers for ruining your life?

Trees, huh? Nice change of topic.


And … she’s still going, backing up her “argument” with an inventory of shooting sprees.

    Poor Bette. Nobody cares except your pathetic sycophants…

    • Lefty

      And female impersonators….

  • Mr. Grammar/SpellCkr

    I still say those Hollywood elitists should stick to what is scripted for them, and not try to talk on their own. They just don’t have the smarts to do that.

      The only 2 countries in the world that have in their constitution the right to bear arms are America and Haiti. It seems there are more guns in USA than people. Every lunatic can just walk in a gun store and walk out with a dozen gun. People should he allowed to have only one gun and no more, and no assault rifles. If they want assault rifles they should be drafted in the army.

        You are WRONG. Educate yourself before making a stupid comment. All you have to do is research and you will know the true answer. The difference is, most of those countries regulate gun ownership heavily. Now, take those Countries and compare their violence with the USA per capita and you will see that restricting the rights of law abiding citizens only empowers criminals. Do your research and prove to me that what you say is correct. If you hate this Country and the Constitution, just leave. How about this genius. Everyone should only be allowed to share their opinion once a week. I bet you would scream from the rooftops that your rights are being violated! You are nothing more than an ignorant left wing Marxist.

  • Thomas Fowler

    You have a right to peaceful assembly. No there is no right to go to the theater. Read the Constitution Bette.

  • Botzilla

    It’s more like the wind between her ears.

  • Walt

    People have the right to defend themselves rather than be slaughtered one by one. I’m betting she goes to the theater with armed guards, right?

  • moaab

    I guess your bodyguards do not carry guns then.

    • larry

      BINGO, most of the anti gun people have armed body guards, of coarse a liberal never includes him or herself when they make their stupid remarks..

      • trueblues

        They do not carry assault rifles. Why should one person needs 50 guns.

        • Foxe

          Why should one person “needs” 50 million dollars? Gov’t has no right to limit the number of guns or the amount of money you can earn.

        • TJCrane_NCC1701

          You asked (or stated), “Why should one person need[s] 50 guns.”
          The answer is: It’s none of YOUR freaking business how I choose to exercise MY God given rights as long as it doesn’t infringe on your’s ! KEEP YOUR NOSE OUT OF MY BUSINESS ! Until you achieve perfection in your life, don’t give me advice on how to run mine.
          Like the old Jonathan Edwards song “Sunshine” says, “But he can’t even run his own life, I’ll be damned if he’ll run mine”.

        • CFCP Patriots

          Because the Constitution gives me the right. If you don’t want 50 guns…exercise your right NOT to buy them. But don’t think for once that you will infringe on MY right to do it. Live your life the way you want. I will live mine the way I want. I guarantee you, I, as well as you I am sure…will never shoot a human being with my gun. So buzz off and mind your own business.

          • trueblues

            The Contitution gives the right to people who are defending the state not every dibby dibby person. The Supreme Court should be impeached for stating otherwise.

          • trueblues

            James killed 12 people and wounded 50, he too did not want anyone to infringed on his right to bear arms. James was living his life the way he wanted to….And all he wanted to do was to murdered 12 innocent people and told everyone to buzz off and mind their own business.

  • larry

    evidently if you can sing you’re a expert on gun control…question for ms divine; why do cops carry guns? Is it to protect them from honest law abiding citizens or from criminals? Do you think a criminal is going to turn in his gun? Do you think outlawing guns means you’ll never ever be able to buy one? Are drugs against the law? Can you buy drugs on every corner in any city in America? Do you really think it will do any good whatsoever? Are you that goddamn stupid?

  • Dan Oblak

    @BetteMidler You’re the wind beneath my butt. If theater-goers were ALLOWED to carry (they WEREN’T), some of the dead might not be.

  • engineman55

    Midler’s wind beneath her wings is coming from an orifice between her buttocks!

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Divine Miss M(aggot).

  • Arthur P Amesse

    Well … In her early career she used to have the “wind beneath her skirt”, and Ms. Midler always shared her ASSets freely.

  • SATURNspike

    That was a stupid thing to say! Nuff said!


    Her failed logic is like ‘the sweat beneath her armpits’…it stinks.

  • Scott R. Brinson

    People get killed in car accidents everyday. Don’t they have the right not to get killed in car wrecks, should we ban cars, I mean cars are killing people…or is it the people behind the wheel? who knows?

    Guns protect your right to shoot your mouth off.
