In Reply to: RE: anyone who uses tragedy to mock people for their politics posted by Analog Scott on October 24, 2021 at 19:49:58
just sharing a little perspective:
there are protocols in place for who does what & when in film making
very strict ones when firearms or explosives are involved
one of them states 'live' props are never used in rehearsals
all of them state that the actor themselves do not touch those type props until handed to them and then only to the extent that's scripted
the prop master and stage specialist have a lot of explaining to do
but Baldwin simply can't be at fault ... union rules and whatnot
but since he had the temerity to play a role insulting to the persona of the former guy it's 'knives out' from his loyalist while being troll fodder for those of that persuasion, one of whom you've just addressed
so, there that going on
I understand where it is coming from. I am not unfamiliar with the tribalism of politics and how ugly it has become. however it is also a measure of a person's individual character that they would exploit tragedy to mock someone over political differences from the safety of their keyboard.
'tribalism of politics and how ugly it has become'
... alas the more genteel days when pols would cane one another on the floor of the senate, have duels at the crack of dawn or dynamite would be tossed into a crowd of protestors has passed ... we look back in fondness at the days when Pinkerton would knock on doors in the evening, and by dawn folks would have a change of heart
though that might make a comeback
we tend to forget how truly ugly things were back in the day
there's certainly no shortage of characters to measure these days eh?
anyway, I share your sentiments and applaud your articulating them
actors, and directors.
Shall I dare mention he was of the conservative persuasion? (okay, reactionary)
he ruined some lives and drove some 'underground' but didn't silence his critics
J. Edgar could actually silence his critics AND extract an apology
and blackmail is supposedly illegal
Absolutely agreed. I'm as capable of flinging venom as anyone else but had something similar happened to someone whose politics I abhor, like Donald Trump, I don't think I'd be celebrating, online or otherwise. If there ever really were restraints which supported civility and respectful behavior they're long gone.
'If there ever really were restraints which supported civility and respectful behavior they're long gone'
nah, you spoke up, Scott spoke up, I spoke up ... others did too
the pundits spoke up in 'the press', politicians from their platforms
I'll bet more than a few 'sky pilots' from the pulpit
similar to what there probably ever was anyway
not that it deters the nastier of the nasty shits
ah well, civilization isn't static it takes civics & civility I guess
not that I'm above being shitty to make a point, just not just for shit's sake
or maybe shits and grins?
