Super-Mega-Hyper-Legend Charlton Heston Has Died

Talk about an increasing man-deficit disorder in Western culture.

Fuck! How the hell do I insert images now? Is this the wrong blog?!As Judah Ben Hur in 1959

Thanks WordPress, for taking a simple system and adding about a dozen clicks to it.

Anyway, my uncle is an Endowment Member of the NRA, which means Life Members genuflect when he walks by. He called Mr. Heston, “Charlie” and sat at his table along with Wayne Pierre for about the last twenty years or so of NRA events. So, though I never met him, I heard my share of Charlton Heston anecdotes. Nobody with a brain and a sense of humor didn’t absolutely love the guy.

I hope they bury Charlie with a handgun in his “cold, dead, fingers.” It would be fitting.

Godspeed, Mr. Heston.

Remember, “Soylent Green is People!” and “Damn You All to Hell, You Blew It UP!” He got some good lines.

    WordPress is run by lawyers. That’s the only possible explanation.

    Oh fuck. Way to lose another absolute fucking champion of men and Guns Rights!

    For me, his gentlemanly handling of Michael Moore was his finest performance. It would have been great to see him deck the fat one, though, then help him to his feet and show him out.

    OK, now the photo is the correct size. I’m drinking beer, not dropping acid.

    Angus, the blog fairies struck again.

    Swinish, Heston did an interview I watched years back in which some leftard accused him of being homophobic. He rolled his head back and laughed, and then proceeded to explain that he had worked with countless gay people over the years, and that they were some of the most creative and fun people to work with he had encountered in his career… then, he gently explained, in rock solid terms, why the “gay agenda” was wrong for both America and gays. It was brilliant.

    I have been dreading this day. 😦

    Ben Hur is my all time favourite movie – you’ve not seen it unless you’ve seen it at the Astor in 70mm at Easter.

    I can’t say anymore right now. 😦

    8 – WTF?

    9 – Trackback from a post I wrote a little further up.

    When we use a weblink to another blog, WordPress immediately leaves a comment there as a notification. I just forgot to delete it this time.

    Just a comment on all the MSM coverage of this. They all bang on and on about him being a nutty right-wing pro-gun guy, and no-one seems to mention all of the civil rights causes he supported in the 60’s. I didn’t hear one newscast make mention of his role in the March on Washington with Martin Luther King Jr.

    What’s up with that? Do they have a problem admitting that actually, a lot of right-wingers supported the Civil Rights cause in the 50’s and 60’s, way before it was really a “fashionable” cause?

    P.S. Angus, shoulda used a picture of him from El Cid! 😉

    One last note: the address he gave at Harvard back in 1999 has some great bits about Political Correctness in it. It’s called, “Winning the Cultural War,” and a transcript and an mp3 of it are here.

    #12 Spot.

    D’OH! That would have been better.

Well, SAY something...
