Singer and songwriter Kesha had a few words about guns during a performance at the Democratic National Convention. She was playing inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, at an event sponsored by Gabby Gifford’s gun control group Americans for Responsible Solutions when she let her “gun knowledge” fly.
During her four song set, Kesha couldn’t hold back. So she actually stopped and proclaimed that she has something to say. Her exact words were:
We as a nation, we can’t control who feels hurt, we can’t control who feels pain. You can’t control every single person and know how they’re going to deal with things and know if they’re going to pick up a weapon — you don’t know that. But what we can control is who we give the f**king weapons to. I think the universe is screaming at us that there needs to be a change, and we have to f**king listen.”
Who is the “we” Kesha referred to in her anti-gun rant? She’s performing for Democrats. So it must be an appeal to authority to take away guns — because her feelings are hurt.
As if Kesha’s music isn’t bad enough her authoritarianism is showing too, and that’s more ridiculous than her music. She can’t “control who gets weapons” anymore than any politician can – “shall no be infringed” is pretty clear. It is concerning that so many don’t understand those four simple words.
