Charlton Heston; 1924-2008

Hero. Entrepreneur. Leader.


Legend.

All these words come to mind when Freedom Eagle thinks of the late, great, Charleton Heston, who died Saturday night at his home in Beverly Hills, where he spent his time trying to restore order to the liberal insurgent haven.

Heston is remembered for playing Moses and Ben-Hur in Hollywood movies (when Hollywood movies weren't ripe with anti-American falsehoods), but conservatives remember him as the campaigner for Heroic causes, which included his presidency of the National Rifle Association, who, we believe, truly do God’s work.

After being elected in 1998, Heston jabbed then-president/embarrassment Clinton, saying, “America doesn’t trust you with our 21 year-old daughters, and we sure, Lord, don’t trust you with our guns.”

It was Mr. Heston who first showed Freedom Eagle the true meaning of being a gun owner. When I bought my first rifle, showing it off to my friends, going hunting, protecting my family at night, I remembered Mr. Heston’s prophetic 2000 statement, saying bill Clinton would take away our second amendment rights, “From my cold dead hands.”

Heston is also known for his witty jabs in Michael Moore’s mockumentary Bowling For Columbine, in which he embarrasses Moore, throwing his own statements back at him, forcing the fat, blowhard to run away from Heston’s estate in cowardice, holding a photoshopped photograph of a young girl who, Moore falsely claims, was shot.

Heston, a recipient of the Presidential Medal Of Freedom, from Our President and Commander-In-Chief George W. Bush, died Saturday night at the age of 84. His loving wife, Lydia, was by his side.
