Benghazi Survivor Kris Paronto Comes to Roseanne’s Defense

Kris Paronto, a former Army Ranger and military contractor who survived the Benghazi terrorist attack, isn’t interested in debating whether or not nasty comments and jokes are as deplorable as nasty actions.

It’s not even close.

Paronto hammered ABC for canceling Roseanne Barr’s pro-Trump comedy after a reprehensible tweet in which she made a comparison between Valerie Jarrett and ‘Planet of the Apes.’ (RELATED: ‘Roseanne’ Canceled on ABC After Crude Tweets).

“The liberalist hypocrisy is crumbling, real racists are in the corrupt @DNC &Hollywoodites,” he tweeted. “The Patriots of this great nation are no longer fooled, so the more you try to hold on, the more people slip through your fingers.”

Hypocrisy aside, Paronto took particular objection to Jarrett getting a pass for … well … being Jarrett.

For her part, the former Obama adviser responded to Roseanne’s low comments by going high. Just kidding – she basked in the suffering of Roseanne and called the incident a ‘teaching moment.’

Paronto ran down a list of things on Jarrett’s resume which makes her an infinitely worse human being than Roseanne. Reprehensible actions, not reprehensible words.

Let’s address those accusations:

Judicial Watch released documents in 2015 which demonstrate the Jarrett family’s ties to communism, in which the watchdog group then addresses the Muslim Brotherhood.

“It’s been well documented that Valerie Jarrett, a Chicago lawyer and longtime Obama confidant, is a liberal extremist who wields tremendous power in the White House,” they wrote. “Faithful to her roots, she still has connections to many Communist and extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Next, in 2012, an Israeli newspaper reported that Jarrett had, on multiple occasions, held secret talks with Iranian leaders, including representatives of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

In 2013, the Times of Isreal also reported that Obama’s closest adviser had held secret talks with Iran. The administration would eventually cut a nuclear deal with Iran which included palettes of cash for the terror-harboring nation.

And of course, Hillary Clinton and Jarrett helped choreograph the regime change in Libya without a plan of action after Muammar Qaddafi was ousted, leaving the country in an unstable condition and handing Obama what he defined as his ‘worst mistake.’

It looks like Paronto is correct on all three counts.

Roseanne’s dumb comments resulted in hurt feelings. Jarrett’s dumb actions resulted in lives lost.
