Gene Simmons fights back tears talking about how much his late mother loved America

 

Simmons Gives Emotional Speech at Pentagon: “America is the Promised Land”

 


 

Gene Simmons visited the Pentagon to promote military service today where he talked about his mother, who recently died at the age of 93. She was 14 when she was put in a Nazi concentration camp.

 

Simmons said his mother was a Nazi concentration camp survivor who gave birth to him in Israel before immigrating to the United States. Simmons noted he is from what is known as the Promised Land, but said to take it from him that “America is the Promised Land”.

Would be nice if more people in the public eye would acknowledge the same feelings instead of disgraceful comments or bashing the President for no reason except they don’t like him.

I would rather have a in-politically correct person in the WH that loves America than a good politician that hates America.

Gene Simmons would appear to be a great guy. I met him when I was on jury duty and he was too.
He engaged with every one who came up to him to say hello. He is a patriot.

Simmons is a natural conservative and he mostly gets it. To hear this part of his personal history only adds to my regard for him. I don’t agree with him all the time, but I do on this. Nice to know. He’s right.

Did he say he was born in Israel?

He and his mother LEGALLY immigrated to the USA and became LEGAL naturalized CITIZENS of the USA in 1963. He was age 14-years when he became a LEGAL NATURALIZED citizen of The United States of America.

Shannon Tweed has been in a relationship with Gene Simmons since 1983. Simmons explained in a 2011 interview, “I need Shannon in my life. Not just because of love and family but because she holds me accountable.”

How many men nowadays wish they could have a sexy woman like Shannon Tweed who could harness their energies and make them accountable. That is precisely why the marxists have done so much to promote feminism, which wrecks women and therefore undermines the men of the nation.

KISS has always been one of my favorite bands. Legends. And I know that most of them, especially Gene, are conservative. CAN THEY REUNITE WITH PETER AND ACE ONE MORE TIME PLEASE??????!

i certainly remember those airwaves sign offs. unfortunately today, the country never sleeps or is at piece. this kind of patriotism that gene speaks of has been lost. the younger generation was never exposed.

I was a fan of Kiss since I saw them in Madison Square Garden as a kid in 1976. I knew Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were jewish, but this is the first I’ve ever heard Gene Simmon’s personal and family history. America is the Promised Land. Well said, Mr. Simmons.

Now compare his mother (And all my grandparents) to the “immigrants” (invaders) of today!

As an 8 year old, he was up watching tv when his mom came home,
And the tv channels were going off the air, iirc, that was about 2 a.m.
What do.you think she did for a living….
No one there to send him to bed, tuck him in, say prayers, kiss goodnight…
His patriotism was so engrained he became a freak show,
And encouraged young Americans to take illicit drugs and have sex with everyone and everything.
Not my idea of a great patriot, or even a good man.
He made no good mark on America.
And he stands at the pentagon, why?
What did he do to ever deserve that?
Was he ever a soldier?
Did he ever go to war for his country?
Well, I guess he paid a lot of taxes, except the rich aren’t usually the ones doing that either.

I don’t know who he encouraged to have sex or do drugs, but he seems like a good guy, now.

What a shallow world we live in when people think all it takes to be a patriot is to say a few patriotic words.
Forget his contributions to the delinquency of a generation of minors.
Perhaps if the illegal aliens walked over the border with a little US flag, they would be lauded as patriots too?

Yeah, I don’t think so…. But, the interesting part is they are carrying and waving the flags from the their Shithole Countries that they are escaping from!!!!! If their Countries are so wonderful that they are so proud and waving their flags, why are they coming here??? And our major problem with the people that are coming here are they are not assimilating and becoming Americans…. They continue to be “Hyphenated”. I bet Mr. Simmons and his Mother don’t describe themselves as Israeli-Americans!!!! The number one reasons that the Simmons became so successful within one generation of arriving here, is because his Mother understood that in order to function and secede they needed to speak the language and assimilate in to our society!!!! And, to become Americans!!! Think of that Maid you have or the guy doing you landscaping or any number of any other jobs where they are not speaking English…. Will they ever be able to hold and function in any other higher paying job and become successful in our society??? Do some research and critical thinking and just maybe you will no longer be the one who is shallow!!!!

If you would like to do some research in to this subject, Victor Davis Hanson has a great book concerning how we are screwing the Immigrants coming to our Country. It is “Mexifornia: A State of Becoming” written all the way back in 2003 and explores the wonderful job we have done in Kalifornia………. I grew up just down the road from Mr. Hanson and he is 100% correct!!! I have escaped Kalifornia and will never go back….. Do some research!!!!!!
