Some people call them “courageous” without even knowing the real meaning of the word. For instance, Meryl Streep and Rosie O’Donnell earn their popularity with saying nasty stuff about Trump.
What they don’t know is that Benghazi survivors are “courageous.” Like Kris Paronto, a former Army Ranger. He is a living proof of what “courageous” is. In his interview for the Independent Journal Review, Paronto challenged “actors pretending to be someone else.” Would they put on an uniform?
Paronto’s role in the Benghazi case was included in the “13 Hours.” The Ranger started with Obama.
“(Obama) turned the position of commander in chief into a pop culture thing and pulled away from what the office of the president is all about — leadership,” Paronto explained.
“He wasn’t supposed to be a celebrity, he was supposed to be a dignified leader. Still, Hollywood was all over celebrity Obama.”
Paronto continued with celebrities who are afraid of liberals. The very same celebrities that refused to perform at the inauguration. “You’re a monkey and somebody is turning the crank,” he said.
“The only time I have a real issue with this at all is when these people are looked at as role models. When they back out, and publications like (The) New York Times or CNN put them on a pedestal for dropping out, it does a major disservice to Americans,” Paronto added.
“They’re not role models. There’s nothing courageous about sitting in your $5 million dollar mansion and looking down upon us. It’s arrogant, it’s pompous, and it’s not bravery.”
And the liberal activists in Hollywood?
“They’re all actors pretending to be someone else. Just because you played a police officer or military veteran, doesn’t mean you understand what it’s like to be in our shoes,” the Ranger said.
“So you know what, Meryl Streep, stop putting others down and go do something else. Be like Pat Tillman, drop everything you’re doing and put your life on the line. Robert De Niro, you played a cop in the movies, go be a cop on the streets.”
“The same principle applies to these other celebrities. You wore a uniform as a costume. Try putting one on to serve your country.”
Paronto knows who should be called courageous.
“The real role models are the guy who goes and puts his life on the line for his country, the police officer who jumps in front of a bullet, and the EMT who treats the wounded on the scene, people who put others before themselves,” he finished his statement. “Those are the true celebrities.”
Do you agree with Paronto? Would you add another courageous celebrity?
