WATCH: Leftists Criticize Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne for Playing in Israel. They Respond.
Sad news, folks. The Crazy Train is pulling into the station. The madman is putting his final entry in his diary. The Ozzman barks at the moon no more. Ozzy Osbourne is calling it quits. After practically inventing heavy metal, and showing up every act that followed in the next half century, the time has come for the Prince of Darkness to hang it up. But not before he rocks the socks off of Israel one last time.
Naturally, the left has their panties in a bunch over the Ozzman cozying up with our yarmulke-clad Israeli brethren. A reporter asked Ozzy and Sharon about it during an interview. Sharon, who does the talking for obvious reasons, had the perfect response:
In a recent press conference posted to Facebook, Ozzy and his wife, Sharon Osbourne, were asked if they felt any pressure not to play in Israel (in light of international anti-Israel sentiments). Sharon, who is also Ozzy’s manager replied, “listen, I’m half a Heeb. We play where we want to play, that’s it.”
Sharon’s father, Don Arden, is Jewish. The apple(s) did not fall from the tree. During the interview, Sharon Osbourne surprised Ozzy when she said that their children, Kelly and Jack Osbourne, “really want to come to Israel.”
See, this is why Ozzy and Sharon have always and will always be the king and queen of all things metal:
The Blizzard of Ozz and his lady don't care if feeble lefties can't stomach their touring choices. This is a guy who's famous for biting the head off a bat and draining his lizard on the Alamo. I highly doubt he cares about triggering anti-Israel progressives.
Leftists are a bunch stuck-up, over-sensitive ninnies. Letting their politics go long enough to headbang and throw up the devil horns when Ozzy busts out "Crazy Babies" is out of the question. They're the Barry Manilow to Ozzy's, well, Ozzy. Most decidedly not metal.
