Kris Paronto is a former Army Ranger and survivor of the Benghazi attack who has had enough of Hollywood celebrities running their mouths about President Donald Trump. He is taking the fight to liberal entertainers, particularly to industry figures who consider it ‘courageous’ to oppose and criticize President Trump relentlessly.
A perfect example is Puerto Rican-American actor Luis Guzman’s tweet in which he thanked Meryl Streep for devoting her acceptance speech upon receiving a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes to bashing Trump.
During an interview with The Independent Journal Review Paronto commented that Hollywood doesn’t know the meaning of true courage.
“They’re not role models. There’s nothing courageous about sitting in your $5 million mansion and looking down upon us. It’s arrogant, it’s pompous, and it’s not bravery,” Paronto said.
He said actors assume that just because they played cops and soldiers on screen, they understood courage in real-life combat.
“They’re all actors pretending to be someone else,” Paronto said. “Just because you played a police officer or military veteran, doesn’t mean you understand what it’s like to be in our shoes.”
Paronto called out such liberal actors to suit up. “Robert De Niro, you played a cop in the movies. Go be a cop on the streets,” he said.
But Paronto didn’t just single out the Hillary Clinton-supporting De Niro.
“The same principle applies to these other celebrities. You wore a uniform as a costume. Try putting one on to serve your country,” Paronto said.
This included Streep.
“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,” he said.
Despite his criticism of of the industry, Paronto does not consider all of Hollywood to be detestable. He gave accolades to Nicole Kidman who called upon all Americans to reach across the aisle and support Trump. He also praised ctors Scott Baio and Steven Baldwin who have both spoken out and and told liberals in Hollywood to stop overreacting.
Paronto also praised Pablo Schreiber and John Krasinski for their portrayals of him and Jack Silva, respectively, in the film 13 Hours, which detailed the Benghazi attack.
