Flea and Chad Smith from the band The Red Hot Chili Peppers jumped aboard the celebri-ghoul train with both feet. Like their fellow celebrities, they immediately began politicizing the horrific tragedy in Newtown. 26 people are dead, including 20 children, and these cretins rush to dance on their graves to score political points.

Not so fast; there are more oh-so-brilliant tweets.

Er. Wait, there’s even more.

His band mate, drummer Chad Smith, echoes his call to change The Constitution of the United States.

Rights? Who needs pesky rights? The Chili Peppers have spoken. Chad then retweeted the always jackassy, and snit fit prone, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine.

Ah, yes. “Extremists” are to blame. Not the evil committing the horrific act. No, no!

Flea then retweeted these ghoul-gems.

And then continued to share his personal wisdom with Twitter.

Really? Then why the public backing of Obama and a free concert for his volunteers? Also, no agenda? Then why all the anti-gun zealotry?

Well, Flea, maybe you should give a hoot and get an interest in reality. Start by talking to these Twitter users.

Flea would rather Twitter user Tonya had been unarmed. Perhaps Flea should also talk to these conservative women, who understand that a real war on women is being waged by anti-gun zealots.

Dear Red Hot Chili Peppers: Stick to Californication, not pontification. Thanks!

    I’m still trying to figure out why these anti-gun zealots can’t shake their tiny minds to remember what happened when the country decided to enact prohibition against alcohol? People WILL find a way to get what they want. Laws will not stop anyone.

      • Michelle

        No, it’s not apples and oranges. It’s an exact example. There was a Federal ban placed on alcohol, indeed even an Amendment to the US Constitution (the 18th) specifically banning alcohol. The 18th Amendment made it illegal to manufacture, sale or transport alcohol. How’d that work out for us? Booze still flowed, and organized crime and corrupt law enforcement skyrocketed. You folks who believe the fantasy that banning guns will magically make them disappear are part of the problem, not the solution. When do we turn the conversation to helping the mentally ill, the declining morals in this country, the disconnect in our society and total disregard for human life? When we address the CAUSES of mass shootings, then we’ll see a decline.

        • NRPax

          Michelle, it’s easier to blame the inanimate object and insist that we’ll have utopia tomorrow if they were gone than to take on the real problem.

          • Michelle

            And that’s precisely why it will continue – these folks who believe in an instant utopia if guns are banned, are the very same folks who allow mass shootings to continue because they REFUSE to take a hard look at the root of the problem – our culture and society – but to do so also means taking a long, hard look at themselves.

          You folks? To who are you referring?

          • Michelle

            The answer is self-evident, but since you need assistance in understanding, “folks” would be folks who say things like this, “Good for Bloomberg. I hope Obama takes his advice. He is an intelligent, thoughtful and innovative politician. It takes a lot of courage to face the mobs of false-conscious gun-totting, fanatics who comport themselves so viciously when faced with hard-to-accept facts.” (That would include you since that is a direct quote from you). Blame the gun and not the causes that lead a person to do mass shootings – folks like that; folks like you.

            While perusing your comments, it’s very clear you like to argue just for the sake of arguing and being contrary – with that observed, it’s obvious you’re not interested in any meaningful debate, but rather a debate just for the sake of a debate. That’s pointless and a waste of time, and I bet you need the last word – you have my permission to have it.

            Arguments are how issues are sorted out. My primary purpose in spending time talking to you people is part of a research paper I am working on about how rightwing people conduct themselves online. You’ve been providing me some very interesting data, however now that I’ve revealed my motive, I have tainted the pool, so I will move on.
            Thanks for the last word, that was really big of you.

          • Maxwell

            I doubt that. If so, you may want to expand your paper to include how political activist of all parties act online. Then you could compare and contrast them to see who really behaves the worst. Not to mention it would make your paper a little more interesting (let’s face it, the right acting like douches, I’ve seen that paper a thousand times, all the “facts” exaggerated) and it will be slightly easier to write.

            Of course, I don’t think you would want to do that. Then you would see that members of all parties act exactly the same, and it would force you to accept that the left isn’t the party of tolerance.

            Still, if he was doing research (doubt it) I figured, why not give him a helping hand. The paper he is writing now will probably bore the crap out his prof, since he’d probably seen it a 1000 times before. The advice I gave him would make for a much more interesting paper.

            “how rightwing people conduct themselves” -That’s very interesting. How about this. How rightwing folks react to a tragedy regarding a leftwing Congressman (or family member) as opposed to how a leftwinger reacts to a tragedy regarding a rightwing Congressman or family member.
            Let me tell you how it looks.
            Most righties send ‘well wishes’ even though they may not agree or even like the person.
            Most lefties send thoughts like “good, I hope you die” or things similar to that.
            Notice I said “Most” not ALL. There are some truly compassionate lefties that care for EVERYONE, not just their ‘own kind’ Unfortunately, they are a rare breed.
            Now, at the same time, there are those on the right that are not compassionate, or even friendly, but they are as rare as the compassionate ones on the left.

    We were given the right bare arms to not only protect ourselves from others but to protect ourselves from the government.

A ban on assault weapons or handguns would not have stopped what happened today. Also, there is already a regulation regarding stays in mental institutions.

        Sometimes I wonder if it’s ignorance on their part and other times I wonder if they’re being too clever by half. The drumbeat about semiautomatic weapons has begun yet again, but never mind that anything with a magazine is by definition semiautomatic, including the M1911 .45 pistol your grandfather might own. Hint to idiot leftists: it’s called a M1911 because it’s the *model* that was designed in 1911–the idea of a magazine isn’t exactly new.

        The fact is that they want everyone disarmed. Not going to happen. They’ve tried this too many times already and we’re simply not stupid. What they’ll get is armed, off-duty or retired cops at schools and hardened mantraps at entrances. That would actually make sense.

      Imagine a leftist getting his wish granted: he gets to pick a whole bunch of laws that, like, totally bore him, laws that were invented, like, way back in prehistoric days like the 1700s.

      The leftist would wake up to a world in which the structures and instruments of law and order bequeathed to us by a very wise tradition had vanished.

      It would be a very brief thought experiment. The leftist would wake up under a tree as a slave whose master was bored with him. The master would proceed to kill him before going off for breakfast.

      How is that ban on drugs working out for ya ?

    I’m a big RHCP fan and because of that I’d like to chalk this nonsense up to emotions running high due to such a senseless tragedy as this. That’s why it’s best to reserve opinion about gun control for a more appropriate time. After a time of mourning and showing respect to the innocent angels that lost their lives at the hands of a troubled, unstable person.

    • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

      I agree that emotions are running high and thoughts right now should be on the families, that town, and on kids across this country who need love and healing.

      But RHCP and all celebrities also need to understand their power.

      There are a lot of celebrities that are not showing their asses by spouting nonsense right now. They may or may not hold the same opinions, but they know how much power their word can hold so are saying nothing except words of love and sorrow and healing. Period. Ultimately, that is why the RHCP are getting backlash.

      If you choose to give them a pass and chalk it up to emotions, that’s your choice. However, I know a lot of people that think everyone, *especially celebrities*, should consider the consequences of their actions and words. There’s a big difference between saying, “This is my opinion that I’m allowed to have in this free country” and “Those people that think differently from me are stupid,” which is essentially what he did.

      • http://twitter.com/tink512 Ella

        I respect your opinion, which sounds a bit emotionally charged. Nevertheless it is your right to express it……today, tomorrow, whenever you choose. MY opinion remains that it’s never advisable to make decisions as important as this under highly charged emotions. Something has to be done, no doubt about it. But it needs to be what’s best for this country made by cooler heads. It is unfortunate that celebrity opinion carries so much weight in a society of sheeple that can’t think for themselves. After all Flea is only human. And a flawed one at that. Just wish the focus was more on these little angels rather than politics. At least let the parents bury their children before we start tearing into each other because of our views. Happy Holidays.

        • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

          I don’t think you understood what I was commenting on. And if you think my opinion was emotionally charged, I think you’re reading into it where it does not go.

          I specifically was replying to your wanting to give (the) RHCP member/s a “pass” because of emotion, yes?

          My opinion on that: Partly *because* they are celebrities, they, their words, and their actions should be held to a higher standard.

          In other words… yes, they (celebrities, in general) have too much influence; they should know this; and they should shush for now. If they make the choice to spout opinion as fact, they should be called out on it, mostly *because* their influence on sheeple is so wide and unchallenged.

          Flea may only be human, but the sheeple don’t think that way. By letting his comments slide, you are effectively agreeing with him, regardless of whether you actually agree with him or not.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Yeah, ok, let’s change the Constitution and make it illegal for dumbmass celebrities to make political comments of any kind or to run for public office, to limit the amount of money they can make cuz you know their boy Obamuh has limits how much is enough and prohibit them from any partying whatsoever.

  • $30423294

    As long as the constitution is up for grabs, let’s cut the freedom of association clause and ban labor unions. Void all labor contracts. Make it illegal to form unions.

    It was nice when unions didn’t attack citizens, but they have shown themselves to be extremely violent, and hence unworthy of their freedom.

    You know what? I’m sort of loving this whole “living, breathing document” thing. Moral relativism is awesome!

    UPDATE: knowing the intellectual poverty of the average leftist, let me affirm that I would ban neither guns nor labor unions. I was making a point. But I need to remind myself, the internet is — how can I say this delicately? — a diverse intellectual platform.

    How about upholding the ten commandments, or at the very least, thou shall not kill? I guess that’s too hard to teach the ten commandments without enraging the left who have been telling us how unnecessary God is in our secular society.

    Put this all in perspective. We now have NDAA which allows an American citizen to be detained indefinitely by this government without due process. We have drones flying overhead in America and we have the government without a search warrant able to read your email and likely use it against you whenever they choose. Now these same people want to take the 2nd amendment away. All in order to protect us. From what? Our freedom and our liberty? Any more protection and we’ll be living in a prison system.

    I’m having a hard time recognizing my country.

      Flea did say that no civilians should own guns, so yes, I can only assume he is not going to be a hypocrite and will demand that his security detail not carry guns, going forward.

      • mdtljt

        I’m not the least bit concerned about law-abiding licensed gun owners…it’s the criminals who have guns ILLEGALLY I worry about…and in the current political climate, I worry more about the GOVERNMENT GOONS who would restrict or deny our rights as set forth in the Constitution…anti-gun folks, please conduct even a cursory review of European history from the Weimar Republic to the present. If you can honestly say that singing Kumbayah and wagging fingers at those who actually DID restrict, reduce and abolish their freedoms worked, I’ll gladly eat glass….any takers????

  • http://twitter.com/onewhocansee Jon

    Fleas are wingless insects (1/16 to 1/8-inch (1.5 to 3.3 mm) long) that are agile, usually dark colored (for example, the reddish-brown of the cat flea), with tube-like mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their hosts. Their legs are long, the hind pair well adapted for jumping: a flea can jump vertically up to 7 inches (18 cm) and horizontally up to 13 inches (33 cm), making the flea one of the best jumpers of all known animals (relative to body size), second only to the froghopper.

    If I had to choose between having an armed government and a disarmed populace or an armed populace and a disarmed government, I would choose the latter.

    Think about this, randomly select a group of about 500 Americans. Are you going to find a group with a rap sheet like Congress’s? Do you know the number of them that either are or recently have been under investigation? Why should we trust them more than the average American?

    The District of Columbia banned all personal gun ownership in 1976. The following year, the number of deaths by handguns went UP 134%. That’s more than double! The UK banned guns too. Oh good, let’s all move there! Wait…violent crime has skyrocketed since the ban went into effect.

    What part of BANNING GUNS DOESN’T WORK do these idiots not understand? Like a criminal is going to turn in his/her weapon…seriously?

    I’ve met Flea on a number of occasions through my work and I must say, I always suspected he was a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

    Gun control only affects those that obey the law. Those that don’t will ALWAYS have guns. Is that what you gun control advocates want? A country full of unarmed, defenseless targets? Because that is the only thing that would come from a ban on guns. Oh, one more question, does your proposed ban include your security personnel?

    Every home in Iraq is permitted to own an assault rifle. Why? Think about it… If all guns could be eliminated,fine. Get rid of them. But remember one of the largest mass murders in the US was committed with a gallon of gas in Florida at the Happy Land Club. 87 people were killed. Where ever there is intent to cause harm, there is a way. This week 20 people were stabbed in China… Kind of ironic it happened the same week as the shooting in CT.

    they are flat out dead wrong about banning guns but at least they dont dispute the 2nd amendment allows people to own and carry guns. they suggested changing the Constitution which is the right way (even though the wrong result) instead of the usual lib judicial activism.

    I love the Chili Peppers’ music. I learned a long time ago to ignore their, and others of their ilk, political views. Maybe part of the problem these doorknobs have, is that Chad
    Smith said that probably one of the things the RHCP will be remembered for, was “the drugs”. That was his quote from the liner notes of their greatest hits and videos compilation. I remember Flea boasting that he smoked pot every day. Both Anthony Keidis, and former member (the other one pictured) John Frusciante, are both recovering heroin addicts.

    Good musicians. Questionable in life choices.

    Don’t forget, at the Grammys a few years back, Chad opened his mouth and made some irrelevant comment about vindication, when The Dixie Chicks won a few awards. This was after Natalie Maines’ cowardly comments against George W Bush.
