Stephen King, not so shining

Tyler (KETK) — I've seen one Stephen King movie, The Shining.
Most people loved it. I was bored.
Glad I kept my money for the rest of the Stephen King books. This looks looks as if Mr. King is writing more fiction or fantasy.
This week, through social media, he's gone on a tirade against conservatives and Christians. The IJReview picked up a story off a website called Sooper Mexican.
They report Mr. King tweeted out "revised Tea Party gospel. Suffer the little children come to me. Unless they're undocumented kids from Central America."
Mr. King also wrote: "Much easier to be a Christian when the little children are not in your back yard."
Well, the author Sancho Panza deliciously took Mr. King and his hypocrisy to task. He wrote: ironically, there are very few illegal immigrants in Stephen King's own back yard in Bangor, Maine, but there are many crazed fans who like to visit his house just to get a glimpse of their hero. Guess what Stephen has to keep them out? He's got a big 'ole fence!
Of course, it's easier to criticize those who face the brunt of an illegal alien influx from your comfy gated house in the Northeast. In fact, Stephen King has "no trespassing" signs around his home, but apparently it's immoral for America to have them on its border. As many noted on Twitter, he's not running to house and feed the illegal aliens streaming over the border, nor has anyone seen him donating his time and money to help them personally, as have many Christians and many conservatives.
Quite a few of his fans were disappointed and angry about his tweets. What a hypocrite.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
