Kris Paronto knows what it is like to put his life on the line. One of the five men who held off a furious charge of terrorists at the CIA complex in Benghazi, Paronto has had it with Hollywood celebrities opening their big mouths about “sacrifice” and he let them have it.
Kris Paronto served as a technical adviser on the set of ‘13 Hours‘ and dealt with actors every day.
He said part of Hollywood’s problem is due to Barack Obama:
“In the last eight years, the office of the president has turned into an office of celebrity. Obama was so concerned with how many times he could be on ‘The Jimmy Fallon Show’ and what he looked like on TV.
He 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.
He also said this about Hollywood:
At the same time, I don’t want to lump all of Hollywood together. Because you got guys like John Krasinski and Pablo Schriver, who played us in the movie. Sure they are liberal, but they are extremely, extremely, respectful of veterans and our sacrifices.
But then you have these other celebrities. And you know what, you’re a monkey and somebody is turning the crank. You’re here to entertain us. When you’re gone, we don’t give a sh*t, we will find another monkey to do the job you were doing.”
And, he’s got a message for celebrities:
“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.
Pow! He’s not messing around — the people in Hollywood don’t know the meaning of sacrifice.
Whenever some celebrity starts yapping about sacrifice and leadership, show them this. Let them see what a true hero has to say about that!
