My World View Has Changed:
My World View Has Changed: Natural Born Killer Woody Harrelson’s latest comments in the Daily Mirror have completely changed the way I look at the world. I just never realized how BRAVE being against the war was….
“But now Woody Harrelson has taken another brave step – he’s passionately defended George Michael over his anti-Bush and Blair single Shoot The Dog.
…At his play’s after-show party on Wednesday night, Woody told Jessica: “I saw the Daily Mirror’s front page on George Michael and I thought it was brilliant. I’ve always been a fan but he’s right up there now. I think he’s a great guy.
“I haven’t seen the video for his song but I was fascinated by what he had to say.
“He’s incredibly brave to have done that song. Especially when doing something like that could be considered very dangerous in today’s world.”
“I can’t believe he got so criticised in America for it. It’s so unfair,” said Woody. “I hear he’s too scared to go over to the States now. What a joke. I’d really like to meet George.
“I want to congratulate him on standing up and speaking out.
“I totally support him and wish him all the best. It would really make my day if you could set up a meeting with me and George. I just want to shake that guy by the hand.”
He also had nothing but praise for the Daily Mirror.
“I have one thing to say about the Mirror – it’s amazing,” he said. “The paper’s stance on the war against terrorism is just right. It’s so bold.
“The war against terrorism is terrorism. The whole thing is just bullsh*t. What you guys have done is very brave.”
I never realized it was so BRAVE to write off the deaths of almost 3000 people as an acceptable loss. Silly me, I thought people like Todd Beamer, the firemen who went into the WTC on 9/11, and members of our military who are out in the field fighting terrorists in Afghanistan were BRAVE. Yet I now see that actors, singers, and journalists who sit on the sidelines and think that sort of thing is ‘bullsh*t’ are actually the BRAVE ones. This new concept changes everything. I now understand that Neville Chamberlain, not Winston Churchill, was actually the BRAVE one. Those tiny dogs who lay down and show their throats to bigger dogs when they growl? Incredibly BRAVE. Tom Cruise who said he was going to run off to Australia because he was too frightened to stay in America? BRAVE. We can only hope Harrelson will enjoy talking to his BRAVE new friends at the Daily Mirror and BRAVE pop-singer George Michael so much that he’ll decide to stay in Britian where he can spend his time finding other likeminded souls to call BRAVE.
