Rosie O’Donnell On The Troops: Poor, Stupid Felons


Big mouthed Rosie O’Donnell is the latest person to make the mistake of actually publicly saying what most liberals think of the troops. Here’s the transcript, courtesy of Newsbusters,

O’DONNELL: Wait, can I just say something? Why do people enlist in the Army?

RICKI LAKE: To get an education, and they’re poor-

O’DONNELL: Thank you.

LAKE: -and that’s the only way to get one.

O’DONNELL: The vast majority— Yes, Elisabeth. It’s true!

No, it’s not. According to a recent study by the Heritage Foundation, military enlistees are “better educated, wealthier, and more rural on average than their civilian peers.” Additionally, “recruits have a higher percentage of high school graduates” and “the distribution of household income of recruits is noticably higher than the entire youth population.” Of course, facts don’t matter to Rosie O’Donnell. After all, fire can’t melt steel.

Token non-liberal Elisabeth Hasselbeck responded harshly and Rosie continued to smear volunteer soldiers before she claimed that she does support the troops.

HASSELBECK: First of all, in the past year, the testing scores of our armed services have been higher than ever, so the education level-

O’DONNELL: You are wrong. We have more convicted felons in the Army because we’re allowing them to get through.

HASSELBECK: So they’re awful. They’re awful then.

O’DONNELL: Elisabeth, I do everything I can to support the troops financially and emotionally. I love them as much as you do. I’m as much of a patriot. I want them home.

No, you don’t love them as much, Rosie, and, no, you’re not as much of a patriot….and oh, good for Hasselbeck for calling Rosie on her comments.
