Gene Simmons has been offering his sage advice quite a bit lately. In July, he told the dirty poors in America that they should try being nicer to rich people like him.
“The 1 percent pays 80 percent of all taxes. Fifty percent of the population of the U.S. pays no taxes. The 1 percent provides all the jobs for everybody else. If the 1 percent didn’t exist, there would be chaos and the American economy would drop dead. Try being nice to rich people. I don’t remember the last poor person who gave me a job.”
Now, Simmons has moved on to pretending his opinion of President Obama’s foreign policy matters. On FOX News’ Outnumbered Thursday, Simmons used a child-beating analogy to “show” that President Obama’s word means nothing.
“I think that our president is not being a leader. He’s not stepping up and drawing the line in the sand and sticking to it. He’s done that before. This is the line in the sand and then you allow–when you tell your child the word ‘no’ and the child transgresses, then the word ‘no’ means nothing. I believe our president has got to make some strong statements and back it up. You got to say what you mean, mean what you say. If you speak softly and carry a big stick and never use the big stick, I’ll never listen to you again.”
Yes, the President needs to be more like someone who would beat a child with a stick. Yes, yes, that’s a ‘Biblical analogy,’ but we have seen it demonstrated in real life, as well. ‘Christian’ authors Michael and Debi Pearl wrote an entire guide on beating, starving, and otherwise abusing children the ‘good Christian way.’ The couple encourages parents to keep 1/4” plumbing supply line handy in case they need to ‘discipline’ their children, urging Christians to “be careful about using it in front of others–even at church; nosy neighbors might call social workers.”
Even if Simmons was not using a disgusting analogy, he’s completely wrong. President Obama has been taking the diplomatic approach, but has imposed harsh sanctions on Russia for his actions, and has begun rounds of airstrikes in Iraq to protect persecuted Christians and Atheists.
Seems like quite a big stick.
