Green Beret clarifies difference between war and twitter for Gwyneth Paltrow

Before you get all cranky, please be advised this commentary was not written by Col. West, but by his female Editor-in-Chief, just in case you were getting ready to play the sexist card. Thank you.

Oh, how I wish actresses would just stick to what they do best: looking pretty and pretending to be other people.

Instead we have to endure the type of cringe-worthy pontification that emerges from their smudge-free lips — such as the latest comment from Gwyneth Paltrow.

She has a new “lifestyle brand” called Goop which I think accurately describes both the texture and value of her words. While appearing at the techy Code Conference in California to promote Goop, she likened mean twitter comments to the suffering of war, saying, “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing. It’s almost like, how in war, you go through this bloody dehumanizing thing…”

Fortunately, Ms. Paltrow’s words are not accepted sympathetically by all, and those who have actually suffered through “this bloody, dehumanizing thing” called war can set her straight on reality.

Thanks to our friends at Clash Daily, we are delighted to share the candid truths presented by U.S. Army Green Beret Sergeant First Class Brian Sikes. In a personal letter to Gywnie, he writes:

“I could see how you, and others like you in “the biz,” could be so insecure and mentally weak that you could pair the difficulty of your life on twitter to my brothers who have had their limbs ripped off and seen their friends shot, blown up, burned and disfigured, or wake up every morning in pain – while just starting the day is a challenge. How about our wives? The ones that sign on to be there for us through thick and thin, that help us to shake the hardships of war upon our return? And do all this while being mothers to our kids, keeping bills in order because we are always gone, and keeping our lives glued together. They do all this, by the way, without a team of accountants, nanny’s, personal assistants, and life coaches. Yeah, reading a mean tweet is just like all that.”

You really must read the whole letter here. It’s marvelous. I just hope it doesn’t make Gwyneth cry.

She was probably just looking for a real man in her poor pathetic twitted life. Looks like she found one.

She has to have a heart and compassion for someone else other than herself… and she doesn’t qualify for that type of human being! She is a narcissistic, image conscious soul less, meaningless waste of breath… and I pray that her children do not turnout like her!!!! One of her in this world is enough!

Absolutely loved your commentary Michele and Sergeant First Class Brian Sikes letter. I may have to use your comment, ‘Oh, how I wish actresses would just stick to what they do best: looking pretty and pretending to be other people.’ that’s classic! Thanks!

Do you really think it would make her cry? Hollywood has a tremendous disconnect with the real world. They should have a passport just to go outside the city limits.

Gwyneth Paltrow is a talented actress and I have enjoyed watching some of her movies. I think the problem here is that she like so many of the left think that because they have fans for their craft, that makes them experts about life. It is a shame that she would make such a foolish statement. I do hope this might help her to understand the reality of life. Having taken a drink doesn’t make you an expert on alcoholism any more than being an actress makes you an expert about war.

Tom Cruise wouldn’t last 5 minutes in a fox hole in Afganistan. These Actors don’t know anything about real combat or the pain they suffer.

KPMcGeezer
Guest
Seriously though, those soldiers showing up for basic are not the hardened warriors we see coming home. Meeting the minimal requirements to enlist is something so many people are qualified for (though this is getting less true, which is another problem altogether) so really the most important quality a soldier can have is wanting to be a soldier. That’s what makes them unique, would you argue? The willingness to sacrifice for a greater cause, do good for their country, and be all they can be as the slogan tells us? But if that’s what you really wanted, you would probably… Read more »

I can guarantee you that Tommy knows nothing of what it means or what it takes to be a soldier!! Obviously, NOR do you!! You know nothing of war, honor, sacrifice, the grueling hours of physical labor in extreme weather, the mental anguish when the man you call brother is next to you laying there, bleeding, and dying…while the fire fight is still ringing in your ears, bullets streaming past your head and coming from everywhere….Now tell me Mr. Tommy with his multiple cars, houses, hollywood parties, and lavish lifestyle has experienced that…..

Great job Sergeant First Class Brian Sikes sir! I appreciate your service and your letter. It’s a shame people like Tom Cruise think that since he makes movies like Top Gun, Mission Impossible and other shoot em flicks and thinks he can live in that real world. No way it’s happening

Pfft twats like that have always pissed me off in Hollywood. You have “people” like Kanye likening dancing around on a stage to war, now this idiot. I’m so tired of pampered, shallow, inept brats running around trying to understand real life. You want to feel like you know what it’s like? Then go to war…. then get a retail job…. Then actually stay home with your kids AND RAISE THEM.

If any group has shown they do not have enough common sense to be allowed to vote it is the Entertainment Industry. Not thw workers who build the sets and make things happen but those in front of the camera as well as producers, directors etc. They are like politicians in that they are so far out of touch with reality that their opinions are no longer relevant in the average everyday society…

Isahiah62

“throw around terms without thinking” – oh how I wish you were right BUT sorry, these type statements are much more revealing about the mindset that is left/lib/D- it is evidence of flawed mental state that allows them to accept ‘moral equivalence” of things disparate- for example here we see how twitter verbal sparring is compared to actual war with bombs and guns and dead people- ONLY a very warped mind, a mind TRAINED into this type of perceiving, will do this. Unfortunately this is the way our young people are being trained (indoctrinated) Taught not to have any DISCERNMENT,… Read more »

send her and tom cruise to the front lines for 1 hour and see if there is a similar comparison!

Daviska
Guest

And don’t forget Michelle Obama; she went so far as to say her life was as bad worse than a soldier’s.

KPMcGeezer
Guest

Bullshit. She specifically stated the similarities, in which they were always on the move like going from base to base, and that it’s hard to know that on a daily basis there are people who want to kill your husband and would if they got the chance. Those are valid comparisons. She did not say “being the first lady is like being on the front lines of combat” or anything resembling that.

Daviska
Guest

Eh, no… Not a valid comparison. She and her husband live in luxury, take lavish vacations when they want, eat gourmet food while dictating what your children eat and are all protected by secret service with guns which they are also trying to take away from you. Wish people like you would get a clue.

Daviska
Guest

Eh, no. They are not valid comparisons. She and hubby have people with GUNS protecting them at all times. They live in a fortress of protection. Our soldiers (and some ambassadors i.e. Chris Stevens) are not so fortunate. Oh, and let’s not forget the lavish vacations….. Get a clue!

War sucks. It’s taken the life of one of my family members. So if you want to judge me as some kind of leftist nut, fine. But my sacrifice has been plenty, thank you.

liberalspokesmen

Just making an observation that only lefty’s see the ‘side’ of someone who knows nothing of patriotism, honor, sacrifice, heartache, disabilities, hatred for their service…I can go on but there is NO comparison of the 2 so there is no side of her’s to be seen!! BTW I come from 5 generation military family…NAVY, Air Force, ARMY, and Marines, so please don’t talk to me about sacrifice I think most normal people are effected by it!!

KPMcGeezer

You’re clearly too biased to think clearly on the subject. Way to trivialize the loss of someone’s family member so you can be “Alpha Military”.

What a pity that gorgeous blonde actress is so simple minded! Worse still is that she is wrong, id love it if a simple “mean spirited” Tweet or a “hurtful” text message could be sent to our enemies that would break there will to fight, and cause there surrender…….Can you imagine how great it would be if our Green Berets could simply Tweet…[email protected], your momma wears combat boots!……..And Habib breaks down in tears, drops his AK and peace prevails………our current VA crisis would be resolved with less combat casualties! Yes, Gwyneth is about as bright as “flat” paint

She actually is suggesting that a significant amount of hate directed at you can shape you as a person. Kind of like how experiencing war can shape you as a person, though she never suggested equivalence.

Though I agree with Bob 100%, I am compelled to say what’s on my mind about this (since Evelyn brought it up)… Whenever I see a person using the wrong version of the words, ‘there, their, they’re’ (OR ‘your, you’re’, and ‘too, two or to’ and ‘then or than’- etc.)- with some exceptions, I automatically assume that the person is of lower than… Read more »

Honestly, anyone who cares about that more than the actual point the person is trying to make is an ass. If you can understand what they’re saying it shouldn’t make a difference. Also, people with below average intelligence can have some insight and might actually know some things you geniuses don’t. Discrediting people based on their intelligence rather than their argument is fallacious, and shouldn’t be done either.

This just shows that Allen West, although I like him very much, will probably never be president. I detest Gwenyth and all that she stands for, but Allen West really shouldn’t be wasting his time criticizing her. We need him to do what he does best, and that is creating solutions to problems. He should really be above the Gwenyth Paltrow’s of the world and not get in the mud with them.

KPMcGeezer
Guest

Wow, people here are so forgiving, right? Anyway, I think it’s safe to say that having something like this even attached to his name damages his reputation. Does he want to be taken seriously or be viewed as a junk dealer?

Lilu Kanine

Maybe he has important things to do besides write articles today. So….

MnVoiceofReason

Did you read it and see where it says he didn’t write it? Even so, his posting this is completely relevant. Don’t you see the need to point out the idiocy of Hollyweird self-righteousness? Especially when they try to compare their unbelievable cush lives with the lives of our military personnel – of which Col. West is still involved.

You’re right, I missed that, but it’s still his website and this will affect his reputation for good or for bad.

To be fair, bullying can have a profound psychological impact and not all people who suffer from it are celebrities. People take their own lives over it. She didn’t compare her life to those in the military, she just used hyperbolic simile to acknowledge how dealing with bullying can be a transformative process.

read the entire article before posting your comments. OMG…

Rena

Congratulations on being a moron… you didnt bother to really read what was said did you… just a quick glance so that you can pretend you know it all but in the very first paragraph it was said that “this commentary was not written by Col. West, but by his female Editor-in-Chief”…

GP in this case is also a symbol for the irrational, fragile left who don’t get life in the real world where people who really care sometimes have to really place themselves in peril and really take the lives of those who would really love to kill us all…even Holierthanthouwoodies.

Not sure why they believe their beliefs are important to the American public. What happened to the celebrities who used to join our military and entertain them because they understood and honored our troops? And as for People naming Gwyneth Paltrow most beautiful woman, yeh, right. “Beautiful actresses” today just can’t compare to Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Gene Tierney, Audrey Hepburn, etc. Oops, got off topic.

Just another dumbshit celebrity, who would be serving my drinks and taking my order at a restaurant if she wasn’t an actress, who is clueless on how the real world functions. Gwyneth, just keep your mouth shut. You’re a movie star, nothing else. Hollywood celebrities really need to learn to just shut up and stick to what they’re best at: acting, which is something a homeless man can do. I still remember when dumbshit celebrities like Alec Baldwin, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, etc all swore to move to Canada if Bush was re-elected. They never did (Damn it!!!)…….

Sergeant First Class Brian Sikes, your so right and for someone that does not have clue an to even to think to compare is beyond belief. Most of these people can’t even tell you what is in the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. To compare something that isn’t even anywhere near as life threatening or as valuable as what veterans go thru. Texting, cell phones and tweeting is a luxury not a necessity and it has become a god to most and especially the younger generation and it is so wrong.

Look, the fact is she did not claim any equivalence between war and hate on social media. Should I talk about all the victims of hate on social media and what they’ve gone through? How offensive is your comparison of that to “complaining about getting her own coffee”? My point is simple, so I’ll state it as plainly as I can; she has a legitimate statement to make and the backlash against her is unwarranted in this case.

You need to delineate between the actions of our leaders and the founding principles of our country. The foundation of our country and the principles eschewed changed the world forever. Never before in all of man’s history was each individual supreme with God given rights that can’t be taken by other men. The economic system tied to it, the Free Market, has lifted more people out of abject poverty and raised the standard of living for billions of people to levels never dreamed of and opened opportunity for everyone who is willing to pursue their own happiness. Our Declaration, our… Read more »

If we have god given rights how are they taken away by men. The constitution is a piece of paper it means nothing to tyrants. This country is done and our petrodollar is done. It would be great if sacrifice meant anything but our soldiers fight wars for greedy men.

C’mon man, THINK. I’m telling you the basis of our founding which was to protect us from from men taking our rights from us. Read what the founders wrote, read what they read. It is up to the people to keep this from happening.

It’s all their in a prefect Declaration and a near perfect constitution…it’s up to the citizens to hold their leaders accountable rather than being distracted by reality tv and video games and led to slaughter via welfare.

And no, not all of our wars are fought for greedy men.

How else are we supposed to know how much better they are than us? (To clarify I’m referring both to grandstanding celebrities and military vets)

Calvin McGuire

Exactly. Look at me with guns and muscles. Oh I have a 15000 dollar pizza oven. It’s ridiculous.

The fact that you can come on here and say he is Grandstanding is because he “volunteered”. Which is more than you can say for yourself Calvin. What have you done to improve or help this country? Never comment about the “Volunteer” military when you are too much of a coward to volunteer yourself. Just simply say thank you for volunteering.

Volunteering for the military is not the only way (and one could even argue, the best way) to improve or help this country.

You obviously are NOT a Veteran and have NO clue what this is about…So, go back to whatever it is you do and mind your own damned business…

I served got turned around getting ready to jump into Haiti. So there you go. Just tired of the war worship.

Calvin, you should stick to reading the obituaries if peoples personal stories and opinions offend you.

Calvin McGuire

So I can’t use my freedom of the speech that so many people killed and invaded brown people for after ww2.

Fredy

And the funny thing is that no gives a crap what you think. Ironic isn’t it?

Calvin McGuire
Guest

Not really ironic. Just seems like everyone gets butthurt over nothing when they choose to get shot at in foreign countries.

Fredy
Guest

No one chooses to get shot at Calvin. What they choose to do is serve their country in the best way they know possible. And guess what brother, just because he chose give back and was selected to be a Green Beret doesn’t mean he surrendered his right to voice his opinion in any way he sees fit. As a matter of fact, I can hardly think of a group of men and women who have earned it more.

Whatever’s

Pamala Watkins

Calvin, you are just so ignorant you’re funny!

Steven Lee
Guest

Comments like this only prove how clueless and detached from reality you are. Like I said before you spineless liberal. Just say thank you if you need to say anything at all.

Calvin McGuire
Guest

And you are a doodoohead. Really calling names it’s all you got.

Combat_Vet
Guest

So are you saying you would rather get shot at in America by foreigners

Calvin McGuire
Guest

We already do in Florida and Texas. What’s the big deal?

KPMcGeezer
Guest

Well considering we’ve killed more of our own here in the USofA than we have lost to enemy fire in Afghanistan and Iraq in the same time-frame I’d say what we really have to worry about is getting shot at in America by Americans…

Oh well. At least tell me there is hope to fix a stupid conservative, otherwise my time here is wasted.

I find it interesting that the little blurb above the comment section says that they don’t tolerate discourteous behavior but this entire article was written to be discourteous.

WARIII
Guest

The article, was written to show how the Hollywood elite can be discourteous, not to be discourteous.

Christy Lynn Berge
Guest

This isn’t discourteuos, its Fact!! People have no idea what the military does through to secure our freedom, as well as the hardships on their families. She is the discourteous one for even suggesting that there is a comparison!!

KPMcGeezer
Guest

Facts can be discourteous, especially when the purpose of the presentation of facts is clearly to humiliate.

You have serious issues if you think this article was written to Discourteous.

If you turn left out the front door of the house you live in. I bet there is a Yellow Brick road. Maybe the flying Unicorn you have will help you get there. It is a land called Oz. There is a Wizard there. Handing out free BRAINS. Courtesy of Obamacare, it is all provided by the Tax Payers willing to pay, to help Liberals get rid of their mental disorders.

So I point out the hypocrisy so I must be a Liberal? Take the blinders off, no Liberals in this house.

Hypocrisy? The only Hypocrite I see is playing the part of April.

I am a woman. I am not offended by nothing stated here. Get your panties out of a wad, and stop being such a pansy and get a backbone. Are you even more offended NOW. Gosh Grow UP !!

I find it interesting that you don’t appear to understand the response to the self centered ego twit that thinks her life in any way resembles the horrors of war., Been there done that. Pathetic.
