Gene Simmons (real name Chaim Witz or Chaim Klein), the Israeli-American rocker who co-founded the defunct band KISS in the 1970s, has a new job.
Simmons got famous for singing about incubus, “God of Thunder,” “lord of the flies,” “Heaven’s on Fire,” Satanism, etc. Last August, the Daily Mail reported that “Gene Simmons’ home has been searched by police as part of an investigation into child porn.”
The Simmons declared that someone used their resident “for such heinous crimes,” but they never revealed who that “someone” was. Sounds like the chicken has come home to roost. It was Gene Simmons who taught his young, naïve, and impressionable fans polite things such as:
“People are going to tell you, ‘You can’t do this. You can’t do that.’ They can all go fu$k themselves collectively…You don’t need those people around, and that includes your parents…Get rid of those leeches.’”
Perhaps Simmons’ own kids should pay attention to this message here?
Simmons is no longer spitting fire and sticking his tongue out during concerts and live performances. He is now raising money for the Israeli Defense Forces in the Los Angeles area.
A number of Hollywood celebrities were more than happy to join him: Mark Wahlberg, Liev Schreiber, Antonio Banderas, Jason Segel, and Jason Alexander. “The event featured a musical performance by the Beach Boys.”
Haim Saban, of course, was there. Some of the biggest names in Hollywood also joined Saban in raising at least $33 million for the IDF:
“Barbra Streisand, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Avi Lerner, Pamela Anderson, Ben Silverman and Chris Tucker were among the 1,200 guests at the star-studded fete, which featured a gourmet three-course kosher dinner, spirited musical performances by David Foster, Canadian quartet the Tenors and Ricky Martin, and an emotional reunion between American and Israeli vets brought together through Heroes to Heroes, a philanthropic foundation that funds trips for U.S. soldiers to Israel to help them heal from the devastating effects of war.”
Isn’t that nice? You work pretty hard to put some money in your pocket. But now those celebrities are desperately trying to persuade you to give that money to a terrorist regime which has a history of pillaging, ravaging, and massacring innocent lives?
What say you?
