Heston was President of the NRA when he came down with Alzheimer’s, and faded from public view. When he was diagnosed with the disease I remember George Clooney making the comment “good, he deserves it” when he was told the news about Heston. He was of course suggesting he was happy that a true patriot would die a slow death. A slow death that would be hard for Heston, and for those that admired him and his leadership. Luckily, the Lord took Hestonrelatively quickly. It was Heston’s wife of 64 years and his children that suffered most, not Charlton (sorry Clooney – better luck next time). Clooney’s statement that “he deserves it” was declaring his belief that anyone that stands for and defends the U.S. Constitution, and specifically the Second Amendment, deserves to die a slow painful death. I believe Clooney is sincere when he shows such utter contempt and disdain for our constitutional rights, and those that defend them. Most of the losers in Hollywood share Clooney’s views. That’s why he fits in perfect there.
