Irony of Ironies, Uber-Pacifist Rosie O’Donnell Has a Son in the Military


“How do you annoy your left-wing, liberal, pacifist mother? You become a big military man,” said Rosie on The View after she announced that her son Parker was accepted by The Citadel. That is a noteworthy accomplishment, by the way.

O’Donnell hated Bush and is a 9/11 Truther who said this in 2007 “I just want to say something. 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?” That brings a certain level of irony to her son’s choice of a career.

She told The View ladies that she grilled her son on why he was joining the military.

Parker responded, “Only in America, Mom, could somebody like you who came from a horrible childhood, grow up and adopt kids like me who needed a family and I owe something to this country.”

She joked, ”No, my son. You owe something to me!”

We have to give a lot of credit to Rosie. She raised a son who can think for himself and she’s proud of him for doing something she inherently abhors. I’m confused but I’m impressed.

He’s the number one cadet. Full clip:


Who are the terrorists? Rosie asked. Her response was the United States:

Tragically, virtually every car bombing taking place in Iraq today are by al Qaeda.
