Hollywood Hypocrisy: Leftist “celebrities” who send their sons to military schools

Leftwing Hollyweirdos have only contempt and hatred for what’s best about the United States — the Founding Fathers and their ideological legacy; capitalism and the free market that foster economic prosperity everywhere in the world, including countries like China which, ironically, are ruled by the communist party; and the best and most powerful military in the world.

And yet, when they find themselves unable to cope with unruly and out-of-control sons, guess where the “celebrities” send them!

To the “oppressive” military schools and academies to learn self-discipline and order.

What rank hypocrites!

Parker & Rose O'DonnellParker & Rosie O’Donnell

O’Donnell’s adopted son Parker made the decision to go to military school on his own, to the dismay and in spite of his America-hating mom. O’Donnell said:

“How do you really piss off your really left wing and peace-loving mother? You join the military. Parker was like, ‘Mother, I’d like to serve the Nation.’ I’m like crying, ‘Serve me instead!’ … He chose on his own. He actually begged to go to a military academy. And I was like two years of ‘No way.’ Truth is, since he was a little boy, that’s his area of interest. The same way I love Streisand and Bette Midler and entertainment, he can tell you any general in any war, what kind of tanks they had, what the battles were like. So I finally gave in and truthfully, he’s excelling and he’s very happy.

From an account in the National Enquirer:

Elijah Blue Allman is the son of Cher and rocker Gregg Allman. Elijah and Cher weren’t close as he grew up. After attending boarding schools and military school, Elijah formed a rock band but soon got hooked on smoking heroin, painkillers, and alcohol. He’s been in and out of rehab “several times” but claims to have last used heroin in autumn 2008.

Elijah and Cher are presently estranged from and not even speaking to each other. Cher refused to even attend her son’s recent wedding.

Madonna

Rocco Richie & MadonnaRocco Ritchie & Madonna

Madonna reportedly is considering sending her “wild-child son,” Rocco, to military school after he was snapped brandishing a booze bottle.

Madonna’s ex, British director Guy Ritchie, reportedly hit the roof when Madonna posted a photo on social media of their 13-year-old son Rocco holding a gin bottle next to friends holding vodka bottles. An “insider” says Guy thinks Rocco is completely out of control, but Madonna was at her wits’ end over how to rein him in.

Knowing that Rosie O’Donnell had some problems with her kids, Madonna called Rosie for advice. Rosie told Madonna she’d sent her eldest, 18-year-old son Parker, to Valley Forge Military Academy for high school, and it was the smartest move she’d ever made, according to the source. Parker went from being sullen and belligerent to respectful and motivated in no time.

The insider says, “Madonna told Guy that Rosie suggested sending Rocco to military school, and he’s all for it. He’s fed up with Madonna’s lackadaisical parenting style and wants Rocco to have more structure.”

Satanists want to build a 7-ft tall statue of Satan next to 10 Commandments

Remember my post of about a month ago, on a group of New York-based devil worshippers who call themselves the Satanic Temple — in the name of “religious parity” — planning to erect a monument to Satan next to the Ten Commandments outside the state capitol building in Oklahoma?

10 commandments monument outside Oklahoma state Capitol

In 2009, the conservative-led Oklahoma state legislature approved a privately funded Ten Commandments monument, which was erected last year outside the state Capitol building. Ever since the approval, opponents have called into question the constitutionality of the monument. The Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit seeking its removal.

Similar requests for other “religious parity” monuments have been made by a Hindu leader in Nevada, an animal rights group and the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

In response, the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission recently placed a moratorium on considering any new requests. “Anybody can still make their request, but we’ll hold off on considering them until the [ACLU] lawsuit is adjudicated,” commission Chairman Trait Thompson said.

Well, the Satanic Temple has chosen a design for their monument.

CBS New York reports from Oklahoma City that yesterday, Jan. 6, 2014, the Satanic Temple unveiled designs for a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan. The group hasy submitted its application to the Capitol Preservation Commission, including an artist’s rendering that depicts Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that’s often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.

BaphometDesign submitted by Satanic Temple

Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said in a statement: “The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond. The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”

The push by The Satanic Temple has rankled elected leaders in this conservative state known as the buckle of the Bible Belt, who say such a proposal would never be approved by the commission.

“I think you’ve got to remember where you are. This is Oklahoma, the middle of the Heartland,” said Rep. Don Armes (R-Faxon). “I think we need to be tolerant of people who think different than us, but this is Oklahoma, and that’s not going to fly here.”

Another Oklahoma legislator, Rep. Earl Sears (R-Bartlesville), called the group’s effort “an insult to the good people of the state. I do not see Satanism as a religion, and they have no place at the state Capitol.”

Lucien GreavesGreaves makes the devil’s horns hand-sign (Oops! Excuse me! it’s really the “I love you” sign of deaf-mutes! No, it’s really the Texas Longhorns handsign! Sarc) at a Satanic Temple rally in Tallahassee, on Jan. 25, 2013, in support of Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Senate Bill 98.

But Greaves says “We plan on moving forward one way or another” and claims to have raised nearly half of the $20,000 needed to build the monument.

More “entertainers” join Stevie Wonder’s boycott of Florida

The “stand your ground” self-defense laws in Florida and two dozen other states allow individuals to defend themselves without requiring them to attempt to evade or retreat from a dangerous situation.

Although his attorneys did not employ the “stand your ground” law in their defense of George Zimmerman in his recent trial for second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin — for which Zimmerman was fully acquitted by the jury — that hasn’t stopped Stevie Wonder from making an issue of Florida’s “stand your ground” law.

A week ago, our DCG posted about entertainer Stevie Wonder declaring that he won’t perform again in Florida until the state repeals that law.

Stewart, Madonna, Timberlakel to r: Rod Stewart, Madonna, Justin Timberlake

Justin Sink reports for The Hill, July 22, 2013, that some of the music industry’s biggest acts are joining Wonder in his boycott of Florida.

A source “close to” Wonder told American Urban Radio Network’s April Ryan that music “artists” who are joining Wonder include, in alphabetical order:

  • Jay Z
  • R. Kelly
  • Alicia Keys
  • Madonna
  • Rihanna
  • Rod Stewart
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Trey Songz
  • Usher
  • Wale
  • Kanye West
  • Young Jeezy

Bruce Springsteen dedicated a song to “justice for Trayvon Martin” during a concert in Limerick, Ireland; while Jay Z and Beyonce met with Martin’s parents during a rally in New York City.

According to Ryan’s report, some of the recording artists have already canceled shows in the Sunshine State.

See also the list of entertainers and industry leaders who are propagandizing for the Obama regime on Obamacare.

So Stevie Wonder, et al., are boycotting Florida?

Two can play the game.

I now vow that I will NEVER EVER contribute even one penny of my hard-earned and hard-saved money toward any of the above lists of “entertainers.” That should be an easy vow to keep because I don’t listen to or buy their “music,” or watch their TV shows or movies anyway.

Join me!

“I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion”: Abortion and Moloch

“Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD.” -Leviticus 18:21

In the Old Testament, Gehenna was a valley by Jerusalem, where apostate Israelites and followers of various pagan gods sacrificed their children by fire (2 Chr. 28:3, 33:6; Jer. 7:31, 19:2–6).

One of those gods was Moloch (aka Molech, Molekh, Molok, Molek, Molock, Moloc, Melech, Milcom or Molcom), an ancient Ammonite god who demanded a particular kind of propitiatory child sacrifice by parents.

MolochAn 18th-century German illustration of Moloch as an enormous hollow statue of a bull with fire burning within.

The Ammonites or children of Ammon were an ancient nation described in the Old Testament to be located east of the Jordan River, Gilead, and the Dead Sea, in present-day Jordan. For that matter, the chief city of that ancient country was situated in the same place as today’s Ammon, the capital of Jordan.

Moloch worship was practiced not just by the Ammonites, but also by the Canaanites, Phoenician and related cultures in North Africa and the Levant. (Levant refers to today’s Middle East — Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Cyprus, southern Turkey, northwestern Iraq and the Sinai Peninsula.) The worship included parents sacrificing their children by burning them alive to Moloch.

According to medieval French rabbi Rashi (acronym for RAbbi SHlomo Itzhaki), “Moloch … was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved.”

Excavations of a 1400-1250 BC temple at Amman by Australian archeologist John Basil Hennessy in 1966 found evidence of human and animal sacrifice by fire. Hennesy reported his findings in the Palestine Exploration Quarterly (1966). On p. 162, Hennessy writes:”Two outstanding features associated with the use of the temple were the enormous quantities of animal, bird and human bones and the abundant evidence of fire…. There can be little doubt that the temple was associated with a fire cult.” In a private communication with G.J. Wenham, Hennessy wrote that “At least 75% of them (the bones found) belong to children between the ages of 3 and 14, or thereabouts.”

Flash forward to February 5, 2012 — to the Satanic halftime entertainment ceremony at the 2012 Super Bowl, in which Madonna decked herself out as a high priestess from Hell:

Madonna

Does that head-dress look familiar to you?

Why, it’s the head of Baphomet! — the official symbol of the Church of Satan, used by Satanists as a representation of the Devil.

Wait!

Baphomet, too, looks familiar!

Why, it’s none other than that ol’ Ammonite god demon, Moloch!

Moloch, Baphomet, Madonnal to r: Moloch, Baphomet, Madonna

What’s a child-sacrifice god demon doing in contemporary America? Who are the children being “burnt” alive? Who are the heartless parents offering their children as propitiatory (appeasing; to gain favor) sacrifice to Moloch, in whatever “new” guise and by whatever “new” name?

The answer was blurted out by this middle-aged woman (below) on January 26, 2013, in San Francisco.

millionaire murderess

As recounted by Jill Stanek, it was the Walk for Life in San Francisco. Russell Hunter was one of the pro-life volunteers standing behind the police-protected guardrail surrounding a jumbo-tron from World Life Organization and Created Equal , showing a looped 2-minute video of the graphic reality of abortion.

Russell was approached by the woman in the black cap, a remorseless abortee. Justifying the abortion murder of her unborn child, the woman declared:

“I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion when I was 18!”

Here’s the video:

When Russell rightly called the mother out as having committed “human sacrifice” to the god of wealth, she further rationalized killing her unborn child, saying she was 18 at the time and in an abusive relationship. Not only did she become a millionaire “because” she had an abortion, she added, “I got a college degree from Berkeley and a master’s degree!” Because, of course, women simply cannot get a college education or achieve financial success if they have children. [Snark]

There you have it.

Her abortion — the propitiatory sacrifice of her child to Moloch — gained her the divine demonic favors of two college degrees from the prestigious University of California, Berkeley, and a million dollars.

Kind of gives a new perspective to this well-known gruesome photo of a dime and the tiny severed arms of an aborted tiny human being. The dime is meant to show the size of the unborn, but in the context of Moloch, the image now has an added import.

10w-05

In the 40 years since Roe v. Wade, more than 54.5 million American babies were murdered through abortion. That’s more than the population of the following countries (a select list):

  • South Africa, pop. 51.77 million
  • South Korea, pop. 50 million
  • Columbia, pop. 46.89 million
  • Spain, pop. 46.815 million
  • Argentina, pop. 40.117 million
  • Canada, pop. 35 million
  • Iraq, pop. 33.33 million
  • Venezuela, pop. 28.9 million
  • Afghanistan, pop. 25.5 million
  • Australia, pop. 22.881 million
  • Netherlands, pop. 16.775 million
  • Belgium, pop. 11.139 million
  • Greece, pop. 10.815 million

Abortion is the modern-day child sacrifice to Moloch.

I now better know why Dr. Patricia Lohr, a leading abortionist in the United Kingdom, says killing unborn is “extremely gratifying,” and why Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, a lesbian Episcopal priest, calls abortion “a blessing.

But the “blessing” is not of God, but from a demon.

“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” – Matthew 16:26

Louisiana’s Corne sinkhole is a disaster in the making

The 2013 Super Bowl will kick off today at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA.

Responding to a satanic commercial that Mercedes-Benz made for the SuperBowl, A longtime reader of FOTM alerted us to a disaster in the making in the Louisiana bayou — a humongous sinkhole in Napoleonville called the Corne sinkhole that, if the salt dome collapses, will be as big as 30 football fields! The reader wrote: “In the Dark Knight, there’s a huge explosion – which begins underground – at a football game. I don’t look for prophetic events in movies, but things are really strange lately.”

As you can see in the Google map image below, Napoleonville is 75 miles west of New Orleans.

Napoleonville

I pray and hope that nothing untoward happens at the Super Bowl today (other than the usual trash at half-time like that satanic performance by Madonna last year).

Here are some pictures of the Corme Sinkhole, followed by a news account.

Corne sinkholeCorne sinkhole1

La. salt dome collapse ‘sinkhole’ lake might be 30 football fields large

By – Examiner.com – Dec. 17, 2012

Louisiana Office of Conservation and Shaw Environmental and Infrastructure scientists have estimated that the Napoleonville Dome Collapse, the Bayou Corne “sinkhole,” could ultimately cover the equivalent of more than 30 football fields, or about 40 acres.

“If Highway 70 is shut down, we are shut down from the rest of the parish,” said Jamie Ponville, owner of Pierre Part-based Jamie Ponville Trucking LLC. Ponville was expressing one of many issues worrying Cajuns in the area of the collapsing 1-mile by 3-mile Napoleonville Salt Dome. Their Acadian homes balance above the dome and its ongoing leaking gas and earthquakes.

Scientists believe the “border of the maximum expansion of the sinkhole is anticipated to be well short of reaching Highway 70 and the Bayou Corne community,” says Louisiana Department of Natural Resources spokesman Patrick Courreges.

The collapsing area, filled with salt water and hydrocarbons with traces of hydrogen sulfide and radioactivity, once hidden by swamp oaks and other sub-tropical flora, can now be viewed from Hwy. 70, as this author observed and reported from the area in November.

The center of the Napoleonville Salt Dome is south of La. 70 and east of Grand Bayou, the collapsing slurry area, the “sinkhole,” and Bayou Corne.

Grand Bayou and Bayou Corne communities are both on top of the dome that stores pressurized oil- and gas-related chemicals.

From this historic event’s onset, when the collapsed area called a “sinkhole” was less than an acre, scientists and officials warned that the collapsing area consuming part of Assumption Parish was destined to continue growing.

The giant collapsing area in the swampland between Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou was reportedly found on Aug. 3 on property Texas Brine leases from Los Angeles-based Occidental Petroleum Corp., rarely in the news regarding this disaster.

Since this event’s onset, the collapsing Napoleonville Salt Dome “slurry area” has been swallowing trees, some over 100-years-old, on the western edge of the now 40-acre disaster site.

The discovery of the collapsed area followed two months of locals’ alarming reports to officials that earthquakes and gas bubbles were occurring. It was the “sinkhole,” however that prompted Gov. Bobby Jindal to declare a mandatory evacuation of approximately 150 homes.

Although the salt dome slurry area has increased four fold, the mandatory evacuation area has not, despite public outcry for the governor to expand the evacuation zone. The Louisiana governor has yet to make a public appearance at the 6-month disaster area. Such an appearance would provide national news attention that locals want, but not necessarily what the oil and gas industry want.

“Every day, the fossil fuel industry spends $167,000 on lobbying , and millions yearly on campaign contributions,” writes Adam Greenberg in partnership with GlobalPossibilities.org. “They spent $367 million on TV ads this past election alone. These lavish political expenditures ensure that politicians are more beholden to the fossil fuel industries than they are to We the People. Against the direct interest of America, they have set up a government largely of the fossil fuel industry, by the fossil fuel industry, and for the fossil fuel industry.”

In August, that industry caused a four-mile stretch of La. 70 between Bayou Corne and Pierre Part to temporarily close. The cause was attributed to “powerful forces” from an “unknown source,” as local officials had said. Those forces bent a gas pipeline up and to a right angle the day after the collapsed area in the swampland 50 miles from Baton Rouge was reported.

“You know that’s the main corridor for four parishes,” said Police Juror Henry Dupré.

Since 2003, the troubled swamp area has had three road closures due to oil and gas industry events. Those closures were noted when the Assumption Parish Police Jury adopted a an Aug. 22 resolution calling for the Louisiana Department of Transportation (DOT) to research a new “bypass” north of La. 70 to link it at the intersection of La. 69 and La. 996.

The DOT is seemingly moving at geological pace, only now announcing it will start preliminary plans for a new highway in case the new lake covers Hwy. 70.

Closures between La. 1 and La. 69 occurred in 2003 near Grand Bayou due to a gas leak at a well that pushed remaining residents, some who had been there for generations, off of their treasured land. Another closure occurred in 2010 when an oil well near Paincourtville, several miles down the road from Grand Bayou and Bayou Corne, had a blow-out.

The collapsing dome area, the so-called sinkhole, is west of La. 69 and south of Hwy. 70.

Subsidence on the perimeter of the dome has averaged about a quarter-inch annually, according to an August report, according to the Advocate. That concurs with an earlier report of a local fisherman, Harry Boudreaux, who said months ago that the dome has been sinking for a long time.

Bourdreaux used to crawfish in the 1960s near the area where the collapsed dome slurry now is. He’d have to climb a fence near Hwy. 70 and then, hike 500 feet through the woods to get to the once pristine bayou filled with critter edibles. “Now the fence is underwater and water’s right up against the road,” Boudreaux had said. “I think the whole dome is sinking.”

(See: Louisiana sinkhole engulfing entire 1-mile by 3-mile salt dome, Sept. 30, 2012)

Stephen Bauer, a geologist with Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.M. with extensive salt dome research under his belt, said that the official August report shows typical subsidence for a salt dome containing oil and gas industry-related storage caverns.

Subsidence happens due to man-made environmental modification (ENMOD), removing material from underground and the salt creeping and closing in the hollowed out caverns.

If the new lake covers and closes Hwy. 70, it would cut off Bayou Corne and Pierre Part from nearby highways north and south that provide a direct route toward La. 1 and Napoleonville. Drivers would otherwise need to drive all the way through Morgan City or White Castle.

At the current rate of expansion, the collapsing salt dome area will engulf Hwy. 70 before the state’s transportation department’s “preliminary study” is due for completion, unless the sinkhole grows only in one direction – away from the highway, which has not been the case thus far. That is why it is now observable from the highway and was not before November.

If the collapsed area reaches the anticipated size, fears of it being a human and environmental sacrifice zone, as Dr. Wilma Subra discussed last week, will be realized.

The collapse will join Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou, as this reporter has suggested earlier. This man-made oil and gas industry disaster is destined to destroy life in those two vital streams.

Of equal consequence, it will also destroy one of the nation’s most precious and unique cultures, South Louisiana Acadians, Cajuns who have been squarely centered on those bayous for centuries.

Rapper Wyclef Jean’s Haiti charity a cesspool of fraud

Donating to charities is now a hazardous undertaking.

We must exercise caution and discernment when we give to even well-established charities like United Way, given disgraceful incidents of their CEOs’ misuse of donated funds on lavish personal expenditures like gold bathroom faucets. All the more dubious are charities set up by “celebrities” in the “entertainment” industry which lack a track record as well as institutionalized checks and balance. Madonna Louise Ciccone’s Malawi charity is an example. Here’s the latest.

Wyclef Jean is a Haiti-born American rapper, singer, record producer, and aspiring politician. Although he has an estimated net worth of $50 million, Jean fancies himself one of the oppressed 99% and is a vocal supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

In April 2012, Jean released a song “Justice” as a musical tribute to Trayvon Martin

In 2004, Jean set up a charitable organization “Yele Haiti” to help his poor homeland. In 2010, a terrible 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Port-au-Prince, Haiti, killing more than 316,000 and leaving one million homeless. Yele Haiti received millions of dollars in donation from viewers of the MTV telethon Hope for Haiti and audiences for numerous benefit concerts and other events.

The UK’s Daily Mail reports, Oct. 12, 2012, that Jean’s Haiti charity is a “cesspool of fraud and broken promises” and has collapsed under a mountain of debt.

The collapse of the organization once labelled by its founder as Haiti’s ‘greatest asset and ally’ comes after years of accusations of mishandled funds totaling $16million.

The group, which the Haitian-born Jean stated in 2004, was small in its first years of operation, with assets amounting to only $37,000, but according to the New York Times, after the devastating 2010 earthquake, donations started pouring in.

Jean said he raised $1million in 24 hours after issuing a plea for help on Twitter. But rather than using the money to help the millions of displaced residents living on the quake-ravaged streets of Port-au-Prince, the Times reported that Yele funneled a large portion of the funds to pay for  ‘offices, salaries, consultants’ fees and travel’ to say nothing of Jean’s family, friends and legal team.

In one case, the group allegedly shelled out $30,763 to fly Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan from New Jersey to a charity event in Chicago that raised $66,000.

In another instance, Yele Haiti spent nearly $58,000 on private jets to fly actor Matt Damon and Jean’s other celebrity friends to Haiti. [One would think that given Damon’s estimated earnings of $65 million and his vaunted reputation as a philanthropist, he could have paid for his own transportation to Haiti. ~Eowyn]

Wyclef Jean (why is he wearing army fatigues?) and Matt Damon handing out relief food to Haiti’s earthquake survivors.

‘If I had depended on Yele, these kids would all be dead by now,’ says Diaoly Estime, who runs an orphanage in Haiti’s capital.

Following the earthquake, Yele spent $9 million of its $16 million on office space, workers’ salaries and other expenses.

About $600,000 in donations went toward Yele’s headquarters, which have since been abandoned; another $375,000 was used to cover ‘landscaping’ costs; and more than $470,000 was spent on food and beverages.

Wyclef Jean, who made an unsuccessful bid for Haiti’s presidency in 2010, reportedly paid himself $100,000 to perform in a charity concert and gave his family over $500,000 for unspecified work. Also, $37,000 was paid by Yele to cover the rent of Jean’s Manhattan studio.

According to The Smoking Gun, the charity also made payments of more than $100,000 to the alleged mistress of the married 42-year-old singer.

As for Yele’s much-hyped revitalization plans, many of them never got off the ground. The group paid $146,000 to build a medical center inside geodesic domes and another $93,000 to erect temporary housing, but neither project was completed.

A New York attorney general’s investigation into Yele’s pre-earthquake activities has already found financial improprieties. The forensic audit covering the time period between 2005 and 2009 found $256,580 in illegitimate benefits to Jean and other Yéle board and staff members, as well as other improper transactions.

At the end of August, Derek Q. Johnson, Yele’s chief executive, announced his resignation after Jean rejected a settlement offered by the attorney general that would have required the singer and the two other Yele founders to pay $600,000 in restitution ‘to remedy the waste of the foundation’s assets.’

How else would you make a dedication to a child activist?

Child activist Malala Yousafzai

Madonna Dedicates L.A. Performance to Child Activist Shot in Pakistan

Hollywood Reporter: Madonna brought her eye-popping MDNA Tour to L.A.’s Staples Center on Wednesday night, where she dedicated a song to Malala
Yousafzai, the Pakistani child activist shot in the head and neck on
Tuesday by a masked member of the Taliban.

Dressed in a leather skirt and black beret, the music icon took a break from the evening’s theatrics to tell the sold-out crowd of 18,000 that it was time “to have our serious chat.”

“This made me cry,” Madonna said. “The 14-year-old schoolgirl who wrote a blog about going to school. The Taliban stopped her bus and shot her. Do you realize how sick that is?”

“Support education! Support women!” she shouted, to the crowd’s cheers of approval.

Yousafzai, one of the most outspoken and influential advocates for girls’ rights to education in the Middle East, remains unconscious in a hospital since the shooting. Pakistani Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said of the assassination attempt, “Let this be a lesson,” and pledged that the Taliban would try again to kill her should she survive her injuries.

Nothing says you care for a child like a strip tease…

Later in the show, Madonna performed a striptease, during which she turned her back to the audience to reveal the name “Malala” stenciled across it. “This song is for you, Malala,” she said, then launched into “Human Nature.” See more pictures here, if you dare.

“One thing I’ve realized during my travels is how lucky we Americans are,” she told the L.A. audience. “We are for sure an imperfect country with an imperfect government. But I tell you — the s— I have seen in the Ukraine and in Russia… May I remind you that two members of Pussy Riot are still in jail. In St. Petersburg, 75 men were arrested for being gay.”

The star took some delight in taunting the L.A. crowd — which included the likes of Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum, Neil Patrick Harris and Darren Criss of Glee — by throwing around the dreaded “J” word. “They say the people in L.A. are so jaded. That they’re not excited about anything because they’ve seen it all and have done it all. True?” Madonna asked. She then took the liberty of answering on behalf of the rowdy crowd. “F— no!”

How does a 54-year-old woman performing a strip tease garner support for a child activist shot by the Taliban? Look up classless in the dictionary and  you’ll find Madonna’s picture next to it.
