Actor Rob Lowe stands with wounded warriors, tweets CNN anchor ‘carrying heavy water for Obama’

Oh, my! Someone in Hollywood who isn’t wearing Obama cult-glasses!

Actor Rob Lowe took to Twitter last evening to point out something that happy warriors have known all along: Many “real journalists” are simply lapdogs for Obama. Mr. Lowe meant CNN anchor Erin Burnett, not Erin Brown, and he swiftly corrected himself.

A real “Erin Brown” got a kick out of it.

Ha! And Twitter users were quick to agree with Rob Lowe’s assessment of yet another water carrier.

Zing!

This isn’t the first time Rob Lowe has refused to follow along with the Hollywood herd. As Twitchy reported, he recently stood up for and praised Ayn Rand when the Left was trying to use her to bludgeon Paul Ryan.

The actor is also vocal in his support of our brave soldiers. And he puts his time where his mouth is; it’s not all just talk, to him.

Cory Remsburg was injured in Afghanistan during his tenth deployment to the Middle East. More about Staff Sargeant Remsburg from The Price of Freedom Gala:

Fast forward to October 1, 2009, on his tenth deployment in the Middle East in support of OIF/OEF (Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom), Cory found himself in Afghanistan. Along with the seven other members of his unit, Cory was injured when an improvised explosive device (IED) was set off on the side of the road they were traveling. All of the Rangers in Cory’s unit were injured, with Cory and two others being critically injured. On this Memorial Day, we honor and remember Sgt. Roberto D. Sanchez, one of America’s finest heroes, who died in that horrific explosion.

The explosion also threw Cory into a canal, face down in a pool of water with a penetrating head wound. Due to the heroic actions of his fellow Rangers, Cory was rescued and rendered immediate life-saving medical care. He was taken by helicopter to Kandahar Air Base, then to Bagram Airfield, where he had surgery on his most serious injuries. Cory then spent two weeks at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany for further life saving medical treatment. On October 16, 2009, Cory was transported to Bethesda Naval Hospital where he spent the next two weeks in the intensive care unit.

Army Ranger Remsburg was in a coma for three months and suffered a massive brain injury. Please read more about him and his incredible strength and courage here.

Rob Lowe also retweeted, and thanked, another wounded warrior on Twitter.

Kudos, Mr. Lowe. More like this, please.

    Nice to see a Hollywoodlander that has their own brain.

    I guess he’s ready to retire. Clearly he’s intelligent and knows he’ll be blackballed.

    I’m surprised Obama would need heavy water at all… I had him pegged as anti-nuclear

    My wife read his autobiography and she really liked it. She claimed that his political views are pretty right wing.

    Finally, some common sense. We are fed up in Middle America. We want a leader that does more than give presidential orders and cant govern

    After Clint, Rob Lowe might be the biggest star to come out so far. Keep ’em coming!

    • Cruz2016!!!

      You must not have ever seen Andy Garcia’s posts on facebook then. I wish Andy would get on twitter though.

  • vino veritas

    Good to see he’s not a cookie cutter hollyweird libtard, although he did star in that god-awful 2004 remake of Salem’s Lot which was of chock full of blatant gay agenda prop & anti-Christian vitriol.

    We need more of these non lemmings from Hollywood

  • Derelictus

    So wasn’t Lowe on the ultra-liberal show West Wing? Has he ever spoken about his experiences on that show? Might be interesting to hear.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    this was nice to read.

  • Alexsdad

    I think he was a trailblazer in the home video genre too. 😉
    This is a good story.

  • Greg Greenlee

    I think Chris Matthew’s water broke when he was talking about Obama last night!

    • JoH113

      Yeh, that was definitely more than a tingle.

  • redheadgrl

    I guess working on that show The Left Wing, err, I mean The West Wing, made him open up his eyes to liberalism?

    Warms me heart! I recall meeting Mr. Lowe in 1988 with hottie, Lori Singer (Footloose, 1984). They were carpet bombing airport passengers on behalf of Michael Dukakis! Suppose that slow burn of conservatism has claimed another victory! Fondly in STL.

    Good for Rob! Quite refreshing, especially since I like his character on Parks & Recreation… very funny!

  • rinodino

    OH WOW, A hollywood star really LIKES US!!! THEY REALLY REALLY REALLY DO LIKE US!!!! lol, pathetic twitchy, talk about kissing butt

    Just when I thought RL couldn’t be any more darling. Now to learn he’s smart, too! So glad he’s got the nerve to speak his mind.

  • JoH113

    I miss the 80s, too, Rob

  • Cruz2016!!!

    Thanks Rob!! I’ve been going crazy over this corrupt media for a while now. Something needs to be done about this, it’s sickening. Like Andy Garcia said, this MSM is no different then Fidel Castro’s State run media in Cuba…

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    Rob Lowe, also good friends with Dennis Miller. Makes sense.

  • lainer51

    Who is Erin Burnett and is CNN still on the air?
    Thanks Rob, finally a real human being with a brain in Hollow Wood!

  • MaryIndiana

    Nice going Rob. Proud of you,prouder of the brave men and women who serve.

  • Mark James

    Even if Rob isn’t one of us he’s still doing God’s work with the wounded warriors. Thanks Rob!

  • Terika

    He’s been in H’wood for a long time – since the impressionable years of his youth.
    How he escaped the brainwashing, brow-beating, blackballing… amazing.
    He not only shines at playing a character –
    he is one of a rare breed in H’wood who HAS character!
    All those good looks and a brain, too! What’s not to love???

    Lowe’s grand parents lived in my wife’s home town in Ohio and he’d visit occasionally and always came across as a decent sort.

  • Marty Graw

    most of CNNs main journalists are republican. the right has become paranoid drudge report nutballs.

  • Marty Graw

    we should take the right and the left and throw them off a bridge.

    Eastwood’s the crack that broke the dam.
