Father's Neglect Killed Amy Winehouse

Contrary to popular belief, 
children need fathers.

Amy Winehouse's tragic life 
is proof. 

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Anyone who watches the Oscar winning-documentary "Amy" can plainly see she was tortured by the lack of father love all of her life.  Essentially her father was "absent" during her childhood. Her mother couldn't control her. There was no father around to say, "That's enough. Go to your room." As result, she pushed the boundaries all her life until she died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 28.

As a child, Amy was destroyed when her father and mother divorced. She spent the rest of her life trying to fill the vacuum with obsessive relationships, drugs and alcohol. All she really needed was her father's love and approval. 

Her father, Mitchell Winehouse was a lug. He installed windows and drove a taxi. He didn't take an interest in his family until Amy became rich and famous. Then he managed her fortune.  

Just as her hairdo was an imitation of the Ronettes, left, her sound imitated Billie Holliday. 
Her lyrics were a reflection of her juvenile angst. They are laughable. Her success was a function of the 
vacuity and depravity of modern pop culture. Here are examples of her ludicrous lyrics: 


They tried to make me go to rehab but I said, 'No, no, no.'
Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine
He's tried to make me go to rehab but I won't go, go, go

The man said, 'Why do you think you're here?'
I said, 'I got no idea
I'm gonna, I'm gonna lose my baby
So I always keep a bottle near.'
He said, "I just think you're depressed."
This me "Yeah, baby, and the rest."

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said, 'No, no, no.'
Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

I don't ever wanna drink again
I just, ooh, I just need a friend
I'm not gonna spend ten weeks
Have everyone think I'm on the mend

It's not just my pride
It's just 'til these tears have dried

In mY Bed

you'll never get my mind right 
like 2 ships passing in the night 
in the night in the night 
want the same thing where we lay 
otherwise mines a different way 
a different way from where i'm going 
oh, its you again listen this isn't a reunion 
so sorry if I turn my head 
yours is a familiar face 
but that don't make your place safe 
in my bed, my bed, my ba ba dee dee bed



A characteristic of "humanism" aka Satanism, is the notion the humans are divine and therefore infinitely complex and interesting. In fact humanism rejects the Divine and without this soul connection, humans are the "useless eaters" that the Illuminati want us to be. Amy Winehouse was another messed up Jewish Princess, destroyed by the absence of her father. Overrated.

Culture is based on people aspiring to become something higher and better according to spiritual ideals. In a satanic cult such as our society has become, popular culture exemplifies the lowest, meanest and most disgusting. Amy Winehouse's death spiral came to represent our collective death wish.


First Comment from Andrew: Proof Illuminati Satanists are Sabotaging Society

Various studies have come up with slightly different numbers, but all the figures are grim. According to the Index of Leading Cultural Indicators, children from single-parent families account for 63 percent of all youth suicides, 70 percent of all teenage pregnancies, 71 percent of all adolescent chemical/substance abuse, 80 percent of all prison inmates, and 90 percent of all homeless and runaway children.

A study cited in the Village Voice produced similar numbers. It found that children brought up in single-mother homes 'are five times more likely to commit suicide, nine times more likely to drop out of high school, 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances, 14 times more likely to commit rape (for the boys), 20 times more likely to end up in prison, and 32 times more likely to run away from home.' Single motherhood is like a farm team for future criminals and social outcasts."

Instead of trying to reverse the crippling damage being done to our country by the collapse of marriage, we've chosen to degrade it even further by allowing same sex unions, soon to be followed by polygamous unions that will degrade the institution ever further. If it's true that marriage is the bedrock of society, then our nation's house is built on sand.

Your article is spot on. From what I read a while back, Amy really bonded with crooner Tony Bennett when they were recording their "duets" album. I recall reading that he had been able to make some progress with showing her how destructive her behavior was by telling her that her actions were "being disrespectful to the music" and to her God-given talent. Of course as we now know, that progress was short-lived. The bottom line is something that I learned during my 20 year Navy career: everybody can benefit from time-to-time from patient, firm, paternal leadership and wisdom. Also, the world would be a much better place if we all had an Italian grandfather figure in our lives like Tony Bennett!

Mitch Winehouse's response to the film reeks of opportunism. He accuses the director of being strictly motivated by profit, though you can bet that it's Mitch who is the beneficiary of her posthumous royalties.

He's not above exploiting the free publicity to plug his own venture to squeeze more money from his late cash cow daughter: "It just fuels me to create our own REAL film. Nothing left out, nothing edited. Just Amy and truth."

....and KA-CHING!

After reading this article here I wonder if alcohol was her only form of substance abuse.

Very often younger celebrities who openly admit to alcohol addiction are using it to cover a stronger addiction in their lives. The public still socially accepts a drinking habit more readily than it does a drug habit.

Also, most alcoholics live in denial of their problem especially in their younger years. Very few come forward on their own.

Whatever our addictions are we can't hold our parent's responsible for them.

Far too many successful human beings have come from dysfunctional families and had to grown up missing a parent or both to make the "blame game" relevant.
Tragically, America has produced a population of addicts that are victims of Hollywood and 'Big Pharma'.

God is the answer and not all the rehab centers with their 5% success rate.

So, should I see it?
There's been much speculation that she was taken out by Satan's little helpers, but who knows. That's the great thing about show biz, for them. The line is constantly blurred. Who's ever heard of a well adjusted pop singer?

And, yes, she was over rated, and really more of a UK thing, but I find it interesting that she came from a working class Jewish family. A what???


It is two hours long but worth watching 30 min. There are plenty of working class Jews.
