Duh Aficionado Magazine: Steven Seagal Is Still A Dangerous Buffoon

For a long time Steven Seagal was mostly just a buffoon. But as soon as he started telling everyone he was an actual police officer, and riding around with real police officers saying things like, “Yeah! Go get him!”, that is when it switched into dangerous buffoonery. You should not do that, buffoon. You are making it harder for police to do their police jobs with all of your stupid yelling, and if the police cannot do their jobs, bad things happen, you stupid, but now also dangerous, buffoon. Hey, speaking of police, mega-racist Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio, is putting together an “educational program” to teach a “posse” (not the Pussy Posse, unfortunately, and gross, and I am sorry) how to respond to school shooters. By shooting them back. And Steven Seagal is one of the teachers. GUYS! UNCLE! I AM SCREAMING UNCLE SO LOUD! From ABC15 via FilmDrunk:

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is planning a training exercise aimed at helping his volunteer posse members respond to school shootings. Arpaio’s exercise Saturday at a closed school site in suburban Fountain Hills will simulate scenarios for posse members who volunteered for patrols that the sheriff launched last month just outside schools to guard against shootings. Action-film star and posse member Steven Seagal will serve as an instructor at the event. The sheriff hopes to have as many as 400 posse members and another 100 volunteers known as reserve deputies participate in the patrols. Officers will portray gunmen during the training, while 25 teenagers will play the part of students. Non-lethal projectile guns will be used in the exercise.

You know, the situation in this country right now with mass shootings is so upsetting and insane that it is basically impossible to talk about on this website, and we shouldn’t talk about it on this website, we should talk about it in THE WHITE HOUSE, that is where this conversation belongs, but, like, if you do care about human life and you do want to find a solution to the on-going gun violence in this country that far too often affects children, can you please not just go out into the desert with Joe Arpaio and Steven Seagal and let them shoot you with beanbags? That doesn’t seem like the right route, does it? Does it seem like the right route? The guy is a buffoon. An increasingly dangerous buffoon. (I’m talking about Seagal, but Arpaio pretty much stinks to high heaven as well.) Again: we don’t have to talk about this. I’d rather we didn’t. Let’s talk about something else. Like this. Like what is that all about? But also Jesse H. Chrimbus, Steven Seagal.
