Dan Majestic reports from New York: The moment news emerged that actor Philip Seymour Hoffman had died, having pumped himself full of heroin, the usual suspects went into action and started screaming that this supposed ‘giant of acting’ was a tragic figure, who might not have died had drugs been legalised. As if Hoffman would not have overdone it with heroin if he’d been getting it from his local chemist.
The guy was on a death wish, for God sake, and he would have done it anyway, even if he’d been feeding his habit with proscribed dope, along with the s..t he’d be getting from his local illegal dealer. Yes, because legalising drugs would not destroy the black market, as some dopeheads insist, but would actually make it bigger and more profitable, with many more people becoming addicted to dope. And that is exactly what Big Brother and the drug cartels want. The first, because it would make more people manageable and the second, because it would mean bigger profits.
With Hoffman, an actor who wouldn’t have received all that praise had he succumbed to old age or got knocked down by a speeding car, the dope lobby had launched its campaign in the usual fashion. It was suggested that Hoffman was a genius, an outstanding actor of his generation, even though the dope mafia and its supporters were struggling with naming the limited number of mostly unremarkable films where Hoffman had appeared. I mean, come on, if Boogie Nights or Charlie Wilson’s War were great films then Harry Potter books represent the best of children’s literature.
And then came the usual twist. This outstanding, talented man, we were told, was struggling with drug addiction all his life and eventually succumbed to it. And, here’s the really nasty part: dope, we were told, was supposedly part of his talent. Take away the dope, was the message, and Philip wouldn’t have been a star that he was.
Dope, the creepy drug lobby says, is an integral part of the creative process. As in, just look at the Beatles, they were all doing dope and that’s why they were so great. (They were just a pop band, incidentally, with John Lennon going off his rocker eventually, under the influence of dope, and coming up with appalling songs.)
The problem is that the liberals and their fifth column in the entertainment world are allowed to get away with promoting and glamourising dope. Not a single celeb has been held responsible for getting caught with dope or bragging about using it. The latest in this line was that non-entity Justin Beiber, who should have been sent to the slammer for having dope at his house and for driving under its influence. But no, even before the court hearing the charges against him relating to drugs were dropped.
Until the law starts making it tough for the prophets of drugs their use will grow and spread. It’s that f..king simple.
