OPED: Malkin: Hypocritical Celebrities Lectured Americans on Gun Control While Being Protected By Armed Guards During Oscars
Michelle Malkin took on celebrities for
"lecturing" Americans on gun control while being protected by a
"phalanx" of armed guards at the 90th Academy Awards.
The host of CRTV's "Michelle Malkin Investigates" said hundreds of police officers and FBI agents were "armed to the teeth" Sunday night to protect the mega-stars as they walked the red carpet.

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel makes anti-GOP jabs after first professing positivity http://fxn.ws/2FchVAZ
The 90th annual Academy Awards kicked off Sunday and the biggest stars of the year in film were told not to be shy about tackling hot topics as they accept the most coveted trophy in showbusiness.
"Their operative slogan is armed security for we, but not for thee. ... Can you imagine if every American school were as protected as the Oscars?" she asked on "Fox & Friends."
Malkin argued that Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel has in the past gotten his "talking points" straight from the Democratic Party, including Sen. Chuck Schumer.
"Why can't these people just entertain without thinking of themselves as unelected politicians in this country?" she asked, adding there is a "chasm" between Hollywood and most of America.
She said most of the stars who advocate for stricter gun control live in gated communities and travel with armed guards.
"[Yet] they lecture the rest of us as racist nativists and people who advocate for the slaughter of innocents, sanctimoniously, because we disagree with them and defend our own Second Amendment rights."
Malkin pointed out that, similar to the NFL's ratings drop, the number of Americans "tuning out all of these hypocritical liberals is larger than it's ever been and they deserve it."
