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!

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.”

This is how Israel deals with school shootings

After the terrible shooting massacre of 20 little children, ages 6 to 7, and 6 adults nearly two weeks ago in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Conn., there is the predictable cacophony of “Gun Control!” from the Left.

Even worse is the scapegoating of law-abiding gun owners who have committed no crime. The National Rifle Association (RFA) and its members are not just vilified, but death wishes were heaped on them by CSI star Marg Helgenberger and U. of Rhode Island history professor Erik Loomis. The irony of anti-gun advocates wishing death for others, all under the guise of caring about life, is lost on the ilk of Helgenberger and Loomis.

Joseph Farah of WND points out that Israel, a nation surrounded by madmen who seek to kill innocent Jewish children any way they can, has rarely seen the kinds of mayhem America witnessed in Newtown, Conn.

This is why.

Israel protects its children with armed guards and armed teachers in its schools.

Writing in the Wall St. Journal, Massad Ayoob, director of the Lethal Force Institute in Concord, N.H., which trains police officers and military personnel in self-defense techniques, echoes Farah’s message:

In Israel armed teachers are common, and terrorist attacks at schools nonexistent. Indeed, it was only during a 1997 visit by Israeli schoolgirls to the ‘Island of Peace’ along the Jordanian border, in which the teachers had been asked to leave their weapons behind, that an Arab gunman took advantage of an easy opportunity to open fire, killing seven children and wounding another six.”

Ayoob proposes the Israeli model for U.S. schools, a stance supported by Texas governor Rick Perry. Ayoob writes:

“[In the United States] all adult employees of the school know how to operate fire extinguishers and supervise an orderly fire drill. A school nurse is generally on hand, but virtually all teachers and school administrators have learned basic first aid and CPR. It is but a small step from here to train school personnel in the use of firearms, and to arm at least some of them.

For the concept to work, armed teachers would have to be volunteers who pass strict psychological testing, and go through at least as much training in firearms and the judicious use of deadly force as current laws demand of armed security guards. The weapons would have to be discreetly concealed, and which personnel are armed should be revealed only on a need-to-know basis.”

Despite Obama’s decrying of gun violence, since he’s entered the White House, prosecutions for breaking gun laws have diminished sharply — a drop of 40% since the zenith reached under George W. Bush, which was 11,000.

As for the anti-gun ownership elites on the Left, their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Both Senators Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) not only carry concealed weapons, they are also protected by armed police escorts. The obnoxious loudmouth “entertainer” Rosie O’Donnell, who once ran roughshod over conservative actor Tom Selleck because of his stance supporting the Second Amendment, has three armed bodyguards to protect her, her wife and her children. (For more, see “Second Amendment Hypocrites.”)

Michael Moore, who supports stricter gun-control laws, including a ban on automatic and semiautomatic weapons and magazine clips that hold more than seven rounds, is also a hypocrite. In one of his docufictions, “Bowling for Columbine,” Moore criticizes America’s “culture of fear” and its obsession with guns. But it turns out Moore has armed protection from a personal body guard. America found that out only when the body guard was arrested in January 2005 in New York’s JFK airport for carrying — you guessed it — a firearm that was unlicensed for New York.

Yup, like O’Donnell, Feinstein, and Schumer, Moore also is protected by armed guards. But they don’t want YOU, who don’t have the millions of bucks they have to hire armed guards, to own guns to protect yourself.

Then there’s anti-gun Obama and NBC’s David Gregory, who send their kids to the private, self-described “highly selective” Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, where annual tuition is around $35,000 (not including fees and textbooks) and where the children are protected by 11 armed guards, with a 12th on the way.

For the Left, their motto is ever “Do as I say, not as I do”.

By the way, Ayoob wrote his essay after the 1999 Columbine High School massacre. If America had heeded his advice of arming school teachers, the Sandy Hook tragedy might have been averted.

Real Liberal Feminism: Abusing Women No Worse than Breaking Furniture

**Update at bottom: original audio of interview added.

Pictured below is Rihanna, a successful young woman who has made herself a career in pop music. In 2009, when she was just 20 years old, her boyfriend, rapper Chris Brown, violently beat her during an argument and left her bruised and bloody on the side of the road.

The couple broke up amid a very public court drama. Rihanna secured a restraining order. Chris Brown was disinvited from singing gigs and lost endorsement deals. So bad was the abuse that Brown was forced to plead guilty to felony assault.

But two years later, Brown has suffered virtually no further consequence. He still has a record deal, still considers himself a rock star, and still gets cushy interviews on network morning shows.

Last week, Brown was invited on Good Morning America to promote his new album. During the interview, host Robin Roberts – to her credit – couldn’t get past how a guy with a felony assault conviction was singing on her stage. She pressed Brown to talk about Rihanna.

Like the spoiled brat he is, Brown grew visibly annoyed, and after the segment he destroyed his dressing room backstage. ABC producers walked in the room to find a window smashed. They decided not to press charges because…wait for it… that would get him in trouble with his probation officer.

You cannot make this stuff up. Several news outlets reported the episode with a certain amount of disgust at Brown’s behavior.

But wait, it gets worse. Liberal Feminist Extraordinaire Rosie O’Donnell decided complain about this injustice on her radio show. Because prime time exposure on a network morning show to promote a record label project is apparently far too great a punishment.

Observe the true face of progressive feminism:

I can name twenty-five stars who trash dressing rooms, who trash hotel rooms. I just don’t know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anyone else.

This is just a shot in the dark, but maybe people are more concerned about Rihanna than the dressing room incident.

O’Donnell and Barber went on to theorize that the only reason women hate Brown so much is because of racism. Don’t you see the logic? Let’s go over it again.

Mick Jagger trashes a hotel room and gets away with it. Chris Brown punches his girlfriend in the face – and then trashes a dressing room – and does not get away with it. Racism is obviously the deciding factor.

Young ladies reading this, observe what progressives really think about you. This is who they are. Agenda comes before everything to them, so when you get in the way they will push you aside.

People like Rosie O’Donnell do not see Rihanna as a beautiful young woman. They see her as a piece of furniture only useful when she’s not in the way.

If you have a strong stomach, the rest of the audio is below (hat/tip Radio Equalizer).

 

Update – Good Morning America, probably in an effort to show their side of the story, released footage of the offending interview. Watch and judge for yourself if Robin Roberts actually treated him like a thug.
