Rosie's Outrageous Insult to U.S. Troops

I didn't see The View, but caught a clip on Hannity and Colmes. The transcript is posted at Newsbusters, but it does not do justice to the segment -- be sure to also watch the video posted at Hot Air. The condescending tone of Rosie O'Donnell when insulting our men and women in harm's way was sickening. I honestly don't think she has a clue that she spouted wrong information (with amazing conviction, by the way) or that she insulted the troops she claims to love and support "financially and emotionally." Here is an excerpt of the transcript posted at 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!


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."
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.


What are the chances that Rosie will correct the record about the economic and education levels of those in the US military? Read the rest at Newsbusters.

Update: I watched the first 20 minutes of The View today to see if anyone slipped Rosie the statistics quoted above that show her comments about the troops economic and education levels to be incorrect, thinking that maybe she would correct the record. Nope. Not a peep. I don't think she has corrected the record on the "fire melting steel" misinformation either. She did say she is in favor of the system in England that requires the losing party in a lawsuit to pay the other side's legal fees. She did not mention that it was Republicans who have been pushing for that, and other measures of tort reform, for many years while being thwarted by Democrats. She also criticized Fox because they did not match the 70 million dollars raised on American Idol last week. She didn't mention how much of that 70 million was contributed by Fox in the first place. I understand that ABC wants ratings and Rosie's rants have given them that, but you would think they could exercise a little responsibility and correct at least some of the misinformation she has put out over the past year.

The libs say we can't question their patriotism because they don't know what it is.

They cannot imagine anyone enlisting for love of country - think Pat Tillman and the thousands like him who enlisted after 911.

Since they cannot comprehend this, the only thing they are left with is to conclude that the military men and women are poor dumb country hicks who can't get a job and can't get an education any other way.

Of course John Kerry, and probably Rosie, thinks that anyone who does not pull the three band-aid trick and get out in three months is stupid too.

Truth is, nobody is going to charge into a terrorist house in Baghdad for tuition credits. Our men and women of the armed forces are some of our finest people and it is an insult beyond words to have them insulted by the likes of Rosie and John.

Furthermore, you state, "But to stick to some facts, there have been roughly 24 blogs about Rosie in the last 6 months or so. I'd say that borders on obsession"

Really? You should really work on getting your facts straight there jfo. In the last 6 months there have been 10 posts about Rosie. And considering there were 293 posts in April alone, based on that, a very conservative estimate of 1,500 posts in 6 months, that would HARDLY be considered an obsession.

What do those numbers mean, Rance. Even assuming that they are true.

Does it mean that there are more home school graduates? More enlistees with a GED? What does it mean? When you say it like that it sounds like you're saying that the Army is made up of 20% high school drop outs.

It's like Rosie claiming that the Army lets felons in. So does the Army let felons enlist? This goes against everything I've ever heard about the Army which is that *any* sort of court involvement is a disqualification. So is she saying that someone lied and the Army failed to find the info in a background check or is she saying (and believing) that the Army is so desperate for recruits that it takes felons?

And I don't expect that jFO will admit this, but all the stuff we are supposedly *supposed* to be talking about is affected by the lies and misinformation spewed *without question* from people like Rosie.

So I looked around a bit...... (Below threshold)

So I looked around a bit... no idea where this person got his numbers but it was one of the only list of numbers I found...

"Of that 17%, recruits with moral character waivers accounted for 55%, and of those, 86% had committed misdemeanors.

Awesome! Let's give sociopaths guns!"

"The moral character wavers crowd got busted for things like drunk driving, public intoxication, etc. (One plus: you can't run over an IED if you can't see straight.)

38% of the 17% newbie group got waivers for medical or mental reasons and 7% pertained to drug and alcohol problems."

The guy goes on for a bit in the sociopath theme of things. (Do words actually have meaning for people like this?)

I found a couple other articles... the examples of the dastardly violent criminals being let into the military were things like convictions that resulted in no jail and probation for a year.

I did find comments by people who claimed to have felony convictions and had applied for moral wavers. Those comments were uniformly furious at the article they were responding to because they saw it as one more way that society was preventing them from ever getting past their past, no matter how they were trying to turn their life around. No matter if they'd got some college behind them and scored in the 90s on the ASVAB.

Moral wavers are reviewed by military lawyers or judges who can evaluate the legal documents and court records, they *aren't* simply accepted by recruiters.

And I don't blame the Army one bit for doing this without fanfare considering just how willing people are to suddenly classify anyone with a misdemeanor conviction as being a sociopath.

Brian:

What are the chances that Rosie will correct the record about the economic and education levels of those in the US military?

Not that I personally care about Rosie, but you are intentionally misrepresenting what she said. As far as I see, she said troops enlist in the Army to get an education. So how can you possibly twist that to instead say that Army troops are uneducated? If anything, what she said was just the opposite... that people who join the Army get an education. And therefore it's no surprise that "military enlistees are better educated". If one did nothing but listen to your Rosie excerpt, they would draw that same conclusion.

Rance, you should realize t... (Below threshold)

Rance, you should realize that the previous standards weren't about who was competent to do the job.

In any of the services the standards were set to control the number of applicants. The Air Force could set minimum ASVAB scores very high, not because all jobs took those scores as a minimum competency but so the number of hopefuls would result in the proper percentage of qualified applicants. If too many people wanted to join the standards could be hiked until it evened out again.

Pilot physicals are an excellent example. The requirement of 20/20 vision is artificial. Lots of people want to be pilots. The physical requirements arbitrarily disqualify most of them. If more pilots were needed than apply and "qualify" it would not be letting unqualified people into the pilot program by allowing those with less than perfect eyesight.

The Army, though never as able to jack up the minimum requirements as far as the Air Force, has been able to raise the requirements and make them much stricter over the years.

There are still qualified people with a desire to serve that are excluded. Allowing GED and home schooled students, older enlistees, and providing a process to evaluate and offer moral wavers for those with a desire to serve but a past that would automatically disqualify them seems reasonable to me.

Lorie correctly points out that Rosie agrees with Ricki Lake's statement that the majority want an education AND are poor. You're focusing only on the education part. The Heritage Foundation study says that military enlistees are "better educated, wealthier, and more rural on average than their civilian peers." Sounds to me that these poeple have prospects.

Note the term "wealthier".

What data is available to suggest that the majority are poor and that military service is the "only way" for them to get an education?

You may not understand this, but there are those of us who have many friends in the military or have friends who sons and daughters are in the military. And many of them are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Statements like this that paint our soldiers as poor people who have nowhere else to go are really insulting. The soldiers I know had lots of other prospects, they chose to serve because they wanted to serve this great country, and they have volunteered to go back to the battle because they think that it is the right thing to do.

This is the most assinine thing I have heard Rosie say yet. There is not one convicted felon in the Armed Services. Convicted Felons are automatically disqualified for military service.

Recruiters tell hundreds of people a day they do not qualify because they have not scored high enough on the ASVAB. I spent 21 years in the ARMY and I have a degree in Applied Mathematics.

The Army requires a minimum AFQT Score of 31 to qualify for enlistment. 31 out of a 99 point test, and it's a common sense test. I don't care if you have an HS diploma. If you can't score a 65 to 70 on an ASVAB, you shouldn't be in the army.
