Douche of the Week – Patti LaBelle

By
Updated: June 12, 2011

There are some things that piss us off and then there are those heinous acts that make us see the world through a white hot rage. Patti LaBelle is an aging singer still suckling off the teet of her last success from the 1920’s who apparently values her luggage more than she does our nation’s fighting men. Recently she was sitting in her limo at the Houston International Airport when West Point Cadet Richard King wandered too close to her luggage. She rolled down her window, gave a secret cosa nostra signal to her fat ass bodyguards and suddenly the Cadet got the holy shit beaten out of him. He ended up nearly unconscious next to a pillar bleeding on the sidewalk while LaBelle’s security shitheads taunted him.

But Mrs. LaDouche’s antics don’t end there. After the fracas, she decides to greet her only two fans in the world by stepping out of the limo and taking pictures next to the cadet’s bloodstain. Are you fucking kidding me?! Next to his bloodstain? I’m not easily shocked (who is anymore), but this was a jaw dropping moment. It was absolutely disgusting and you have to be a callous bitch to pull that off OR be so self-absorbed in taking pics with your only two fans to not care about the person whose life you just destroyed. And by the way, one of those fans she took pictures with was the police officer investigating the incident. So how do you think she was portrayed in that report? Like a fucking saint.

Think is is too absurd to be true? See the full story and watch the security cam footage here.

I want to thank RU for inducting me into Douchebagistan. I earned it.

Had she come out at any time afterward and said, “This was an unfortunate incident, but I felt my life was in danger” we would have laughed and not believed her. But now it’s even worse. We hate the fact that she showed no remorse and want to see her fat carcass fitted for a windsock at the end of a runway in Iraq. The job of a hired gun is not to start a fight or hurt anyone. A security man’s job is to get the trouble maker away from the person you’re guarding. These fucksticks decided the luggage was so precious that they immediately started throwing bombs at a man half their size. Poor judgment on their part and even poorer judgment on Labelle’s part for hiring them. It turns out that one of them is actually her son. Priceless.

So surely the bastion of integrity, West Point, would come to Cadet King’s aid in his time of need and help prove his innocence in this matter. After all, we all have the right to due process, even under the UCMJ, right? Wrong. West Point crucified the lad. It reminds me of a douchebag Battalion Commander I once had who threw the book at a Warrant Officer for defending himself against 4 attackers in a Korean back alley. The fight started when one attacker broke a bottle over the Warrant Officer’s face and shredded it like wheat. He fought off all 4 men and for his actions received an article 15 for fighting in public. Welcome to the anal ravaging of USMA injustice Cadet King.

And welcome to the douchebag hall of fame, Mrs. LaBelle. You’ve earned it.

    Hopefully, Mr. King will have a little payback by the tune of a couple million as he sues Cow Patti.

    This is what I wrote to my Congressman: Sir:
    I read with disgust that a Senior at the United States Military Academy, Army Cadet Richard King of Texas, was viciously attacked by an entertainer’s bodyguards (Patti LaBelle) and then was wrongly punished by the academy when he was merely a victim. He is currently sueing both the Police for not doing their jobs and investigated this unwarrented attack, but also Patti La Belle. While I believe the civil courts will afford him a measure of justice, another matter must be addressed by Congress, specifically his reinstatement as a cadet, and receiving his commission as a 2nd Lt. I would request that you forward your concerns to his Congressman and to the Superintendent David Huntoon. While I do not think very highly of General Huntoon, I think he should do the right thing and reinstate this soldier, given that the original information forwarded by the police about this incident was untrue and prejudicial to Mr. King.
    Why would I care about a resident of Texas I do not know personally? I was a proud member of our military, retiring from the Cal Guard after 28 years. Even retired, we take care of our own. That this soldier was viciously attack and then denied due process due to unprofessional police conduct sickens me. Please let me know what actions you have taken about my concerns.

    I think we should all write our Congressman, especially as the other scumbag in this story is David Huntoon (of the theft of a 45 Cal. of Gen MacArthur infamy) clearly did not do his job.

    It’s rare that I stay angry about stories this old (old in internet time), but I just can’t seem to let go of this BS. Hopefully she gets taken to the bank by this Cadet so he can be the richest E-1 in the Army. Funny article.

    This washed up skank. and her entire group need to have their asses kicked. The cops who posed with her for the photo need to lose their jobs and also deserve to have their asses kicked. This should not go unpunished. I do not care if the kid was piss drunk you do not get to beat someone to a point where they need staples in their head for walking near luggage and a limo.

    The entire administration at West Point needs a good kick in the balls for this one as well.

    I’m glad you guys heard about this, even happier that you’ve sent her to Douchebagistan. At USMA, the people I showed that story to were shocked that it had happened, even more so that the CDT was then crucified. Another inch of the long grey dick…

    I just don’t understand the whole thing!!! [email protected]#$ patti labelle…she’s a screeching skank who should be shot for crimes against real people! and WTF is up with west point? when i was in, we had some west point officers and i thought they were great, realistic and compassionate…i’m betting PRIVATE KING would have been the same way. way to waste a good officer and ruin a life. unbeleivable!

    She is a piece of trash. My wife is a flight attendant and her airline had the hag on her plane (a discount carrier) and the hag wouldn’t talk to anyone. Her “security douche” told people to not even look at her, she doesn’t like it. Wish those assholes would have attacked me, two in the chest to each of them. I hope the scumbags at West Point get some nice autographs. I am a cop in the civilian side and am ashamed and disgusted by the “officer” posing with the hag and the blood stains. Both of those a-holes should be in jail, the video is plenty of evidence. Hope she gets hit by a bus…..

    A great read as always, Kelly.

    So now what? Mil Spouse, Kanani Fong of “The Kitchen Dispatch” has launched a Facebook effort to hold the feet of the powers that be in Houston to the fire. If you’d like to take meaningful action after you’ve had a good rant, here’s the pertinent info she posted:

    While others have been focused on Richard King’s subsequent expulsion from West Point, I’ve been focusing on the lax security at the Houston airport, and the impropriety of the Houston PD who asked for photo ops with LaBelle. I and others have been encouraging the Houston PD to review the case given the release of the surveillance video made public by King’s attorney. Thug culture should not be tolerated, and most especially when it has been gilded by celebrity. The LaBelle corporation has proven themselves to be a public menace at airports and venues everywhere.

    Here are a few emails of related Houston officials:

    Sandra Munks, [email protected] (Houston Chamber of Commerce –has close ties with the Commission)

    Annise D. Parker, Mayor of Houston [email protected]

    Mario Diaz, Houston Airport Commission, [email protected]

    Houston Police Department, [email protected]

    They are also on Twitter:

    @iah, @HoustonIncident, @GHPartnership @anniseparker

    The Houston DA does not have an email, but you may call or write Patricia R. Lykos at Office of The District Attorney, Harris County Texas 713-755-5800. 1201 Franklin, Houston, TX 77002

    I’ll leave you with this thought: King was not targeted because he was in the military; this could have happened to anybody. Why is it the Rodney King video “went viral” long before social media even existed… yet this incident is already disappearing into the cyber scroll and the MSM is already bored with it?

      Thanks for the list, Kriste! The only way these people (the police and LaBelle) will feel the heat is a pissed of citizenry.

      I have another suggestion: If you know any gay people, tell them about this… they’re like 80% of her fanbase. If you turn the gays on her, she has nothing left.

    Whats wrong with our justice system that someone can be assaulted and then be told they caused it to happen? West Point needs to grow a pair. Can I start pushing people around if they get to close to my kids or valuables? It looks like King was preoccupied on his phone. The security guards should have been standing next to the luggage in the first place (if it was so precious) and they didn’t have the right to lay hands on anyone unless the luggage was being touched.

      I believe he was kicked out because the HPD forwarded the false police report that was filed.

    I couldn’t have stated my distaste for Lady Shamu the Whale or WestPoint’s handling of this matter any better than Rob and Tim. I will say Thankyou to the Rhino Den editors for bringing this to our attention. Cadet King …. I will say this to you son..General Patton, who graduated from West Point, would’ve been proud of you for doing your best in standing up to these Aholes n gone after n kicked their asses in retribution. They’re alot of self riteous a-holes in this country. Sometimes it’s hard to find the heroes. Then I think of the thousands of heroes fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq…they’re the ones who are important in this country Cadet King…and so are you.

    I’m a veteran of Active Duty, a current member of the Army National Guard (E5), and a police officer. I read this article, and then the new article as well, and I took a moment to reflect on it.

    Make no mistake; police get second-guessed way too much. Also make no mistake; I don’t think soldiers are above the law and have, in the past, arrested some when they did something wrong. That being said, I saw NOTHING in the video that would indicate an offense on the part of the Cadette. I did see an assault on the part of the “security”. I also saw a complete lack of professionalism on the part of the officers on scene.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love my “brothers in blue” as much as my brothers in arms, but sometimes there are actions by police that put a huge stain on the badge. This is one of those incidents.

    Agree with Greg D, West Point Academy deserves Co-Douche of the Week.

    To put someone in the hospital for walking near your belongings is fucked up and those men should have assault charges against them. But to ruin someone’s career and dreams of being a commissioned officer in the US Army because of something so asinine is just atrocious.

    Kelly, 2 Questions about your Downrange Korea excerpt.

    What year did this take place? Did this happen downrange Tongduchon?

    I was there in 1993, (Bco 5/20 Barbarians) Similar experience I watched unfold and came to the rescue of a soldier who had a bottle broken over his head in the street. Myself and 4 buddies (pretty drunk I might add) ran to the troops aid and fended off his attackers (Plural) Soldier ended up being from Camp Hovey and he too was subject to a douchebag Commander who Article 15’d his ass. I might have to right a story about that incident when I get time and submit it for you to read.

      I was at Camp Hovey in 1993 (Cco/102 MI BN) and remember that incident at TDC. There was a rash of things like that happening at the time. A buddy of ours was yanked out the back entrance of the T-club. In every instance the soldier got an Article 15 and the Korean cops did nothing. Seems like it’s still happening today. It’s like they want our boys to stand there and not defend themselves.

    Patti Labelle still deserves to be crucified in this case, but the Cadet should not be held up as a model of all that is right in the world. Dude was getting put on a leave of absence for the remainder of the semester, after he had successfully fought off multiple honor/conduct investigations and had his separation form the Academy suspended.
    So he eventually has that suspesion revoked, he gets spearated (kicked out), and sues god and everyone to have that overturned at the higest levels of the Army and government, and poof – he is allowed back. He returns as a December grad (extra semester)…I’m telling you, this kid is not the stereo-typical “good dude” most cadets are, he really was/is a turd burglar…so he comes back this past fall, with a renewed chance at life and basically shits it away. Does horribly in his company and ‘fails’ militarily and then barely shows up to his under-loaded classes, failing 2 of them, and almost failing another 2. he was obviously separated….still feel sorry for this kid or now know that he shit away any opportunity given to him?!?
