Idiot Spike Lee: “The United States Is the Most Violent Country in the History of Civilization” (Video)
Director Spike Lee, along with his wife Tonya, were on the Today show this morning to promote their new children’s book. But, Spike coudln’t help himself. When he was asked about the Tucson shootings Spike told Meredith Viera (who is still pushing the line that Loughner snapped because of the tea party, etc.) that, “The United States is the most violent county in the history of civilization.
Media Research Center reported:
MEREDITH VIEIRA: I want to talk a little bit about what happened in Arizona last week-
SPIKE LEE: Right.
VIEIRA: -because there’s been so much discussion about discord in this country-
VIEIRA: -and the level of rhetoric. And not saying that it was responsible for what happened, but that it just adds to negativity, in general.
LEE: Here’s my, my take in it. I think that, as film makers, as politicians, as artists, we have to understand that all, whatever we do goes out in the universe. And you should be aware of what you’re doing. And you cannot just say “Well I just did this and, and my – had nothing to do with what happened.” That’s, that’s not, that’s not the case. Also the United States of America is the most violent country in the history of civilization. And this NRA thing. We gotta turn this around. You know these, these guns are out of hand. And I know they have a very powerful lobby but something has to be done about the gun control in this country. That’s my opinion.
