It’s usually never a pleasant day here at Conservative Tribune when we have to talk about a member of the Kardashian and/or Jenner clan.
There are plenty of reasons for this. Usually, it involves one of them saying something stupid, especially when it comes to politics; you know things are bad when Caitlyn Jenner is the most astute member of the franchise, er, I mean family.
There’s almost always a chance we have to hear Kim Kardashian try to explain her liberal beliefs, which is a little bit like trying to listen to Snooki explain string theory. And then there’s always the off chance Kanye shows up. All in all, it’s just something we’d all rather avoid.
However, on this chilly December morn, I am the bearer of good news: We have a Kardashian who actually has the guts to approach a controversial issue — guns — and not take the liberal line! For a TV show that’s notoriously liberal! And probably just to generate some buzz!
Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, the next episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” features the Kardashian ladies considering purchasing a firearm due to recent crimes against the sisters Kardashian, including Kim’s robbery in Paris and recent stalking incidents involving Kendall Jenner.
TheBlaze reports that while Kim thought security would be enough to ensure that America would only be able to keep up with the Kardashians at a safe distance, Khloe thought it was time to use the Second Amendment for what it was there for.
“We’re looking up different guns,” Khloe can be seen saying in a clip.
“Different what?” Kim replies. I’m assuming she was just stunned, although the other alternative — that she’s made it 37 years on this planet without actually learning what a firearm is — isn’t as farfetched as it might be with a different individual.
“Different guns,” Khloe replied. “She (Kendall) just feels like, really unsafe. Like, she says she has like literally a different stalker outside of her house every few days. And like, she’s a single girl who lives alone and she just wants a way — like someone’s already broken into her home and what if she was there …”
Kim pushes back, but Khloe and Kendall decide to go out to a gun range.
OK, I realize that “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” is about as real as Manti Te’o’s dead girlfriend and about as relevant as that reference.
I’ve watched a grand total of one episode of the series, back when the olympian formerly known as Bruce played a major role in the show. The episode involved the family going on a ski trip and Kim getting furious with her sisters. Kim’s anger was so great that she decided to “spontaneously” walk down to the bus station at the bottom of the hill so that she could get back to LA. Yet, even though this decision was made at the spur of the moment with supposedly no warning whatsoever, cameramen were somehow in perfect position on the mountainside to get expertly composed long-shots of her walking down the mountain road in low light.
Amazing! And it’s totally not scripted at all, nope, not one bit. Kim, for those of you were curious, had a change of heart down at the bus station and walked back up the mountain to the lodge, where she reconciled with her sisters and everyone had a nice good old-fashioned family vacay.
Feigned and witless though their oeuvre may be, taking any sort of public stand for guns in an entertainment industry that loves gun control almost as much as it loves itself takes a degree of fortitude I would not normally have associated with the Kardashians or their satellites. Khloe and Kendall are definitely risking some hate from this.
Of course, Hollywood loves guns in private. How do you think that those bodyguards are protecting stars like Matt Damon or George Clooney? Slingshots? Mace? Not so much.
Artificial and stupid though “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” may normally be, it has — for once — actually done us a great service. Khloe and Kendall have thrown back the curtain on how more than a few stars protect themselves from the threats posed by thieves, stalkers and other sundry psychopaths.
Next time you hear some Hollywood liberal going on about how you shouldn’t be able to own a gun, remember — their safety often depends on the very item they don’t want you to have.
