A Tribute to Charlton Heston for Obama and Hillary

As you no doubt know by now, we lost a great man this weekend, Charleton Heston.  Movie star, conservative, and a man not afraid to speak his mind.  I thought I would pull some of his own comments and weave them together into a final “interview” in honor of his legacy.  So, here we go…

Me:  Mr. Heston, welcome.  I am honored to get to speak with you today.  Was there any role in your many years you wish you had gotten to play?

Heston:  “I’ve played three presidents, three saints and two geniuses – and that’s probably enough for any man.”

Me:  I would say so.  Let’s talk about gun control–a subject to which you have dedicated much time and effort.  Remind us again what you said about being President of the NRA.

Heston:  I said a few years ago that “I intend to dedicate my remaining time as President of the NRA to ensure that the Second Amendment is safe from Al Gore and all those who threaten it.”

Me:  I love it.  Sadly you will not be here to see what the Supreme Court ultimately does with this issue in Washington D.C. but what do you think needs to be done to ensure our freedoms in this area?

Heston: ” A clear enunciation of these rights needs to be enshrined in the constitution to guarantee that this basic right of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen shall not be infringed upon by anti-gun public officials.”

Me:  Amen to that. 

Heston:  Further, “As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I’ve realized that firearms are not the only issue.  No, it’s much, much bigger than that.  I’ve come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated.”

Me:  Exactly–political correctness is everywhere.  In this Democratic primary campaign it is running rampant. (I hope I can say “running rampant.”)

Heston:  “Political Correctness is tyranny with a happy face.”

Me:  So true indeed.  If you had an opportunity to address Mrs. Clinton about your thoughts on gun control and politics, what would you say?

Heston:  I’d say the same thing I said to her husband when I said, “Mr. Clinton, sir, America didn’t trust you with our health care system, America didn’t trust you with gays in the military, America doesn’t trust you with our 21-year old daughters, and we sure, Lord, don’t trust you with our guns.”

Me:  Well, the part about the daughters probably doesn’t apply to her though…

Heston:  (smiling) (silence)

Me:  Well, what might you say to Obama?

Heston:  “I’m a seeker too.  But my dreams aren’t like yours.  I can’t help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better that [this] man.  Has to be.”

Me:  You would think so.  WIth 300 million Americans, I would hope that there are people here more qualified and better suited to run our Country.

Heston:  If he is elected I would cry out, “You may conquer the land, You may slaughter the people.  But that is not the end.  We will rise again.”  And anyway, if society is wounded by being crazy enough to elect Obama or Hillary well, “Society mends its wounds.  And that’s invariably true in all the tragedies, in the comedies as well.  And certainly in the histories.”

Me:   You know Obama claims to be about uniting our Country, yet he attends a racially bigotted church, his wife has written essays speaking of how much she wants to see a “black” America and he clearly wants to turn our Country in to a socialist State.  What can we do about this if he is elected?

Heston:  If he is elected my first question for him bluntly would be, “Are you a master builder or a master butcher?” and then I would scream at the top of my voice, “Let my people go!”

Me:  Have you run into any Democrats up in Heaven yet?

Heston:  HA HA HA, well of course not, but if I do I know exactly what I’ll say to them…

Me:  What would that be?

Heston:  “Get your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!”

Me:  Thanks so much for allowing me this opportunity.  We will all miss you.  Your life seems so rich and full, and we are truly blessed to have had your voice.

Heston:  “It’s been quite a ride.  I’ve loved every minute of it.”

    Definitely gonna miss that guy, there don’t make them like that in Hollywood any longer.

  2. Longing for Holiday Says:

    You’ve taken a page from Pistol Pete (or did he steal the idea from you??).

    Well, in any case, some great post-mortem entertainment from Mr. Heston. Thanks for the chuckles.

  3. Stacy Says:

    Fantastic. Something Mr. Heston would have definitely approved of.

  4. mklasing Says:

    Longing: I totally stole it from Pistol 😉

    Stacy: I hope so–I loved this guy–wish there were more like him in Hollywood instead of the cesspool of humanity that dominates that area of the Country. Wow-“cesspool of humanity” I’m going to use that more often.

  5. Longing for Holiday Says:

    Well, that’s a complement to the Pistol.

    Maybe I’ll do same and interview John Newton (if he hasn’t already) or perhaps Flannery O’Connor.

    Jezz, that is brilliant–I appreciate your criticism. It was very informative, it was clear and easy to follow and I might understand it if I wasn’t so damn stupid.
