Rick Sanchez Fired, Now What About a few Others?


    I’m glad to see that CNN fired Rick Sanchez for blatant anti-Semitism, the likes of which you rarely hear in this country nowadays. To watch Sanchez’s meltdown, see here.

    OK, so Rick Sanchez is a bigot who deserved to be fired by their TV and/or radio networks, no doubt. But what about others like: Glenn Beck (a million crazy quotes, like “Because if you are a white human that loves America and happens to be a Christian, forget about it, Jack.”), Rush Limbaugh (“The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.”), Erick Erickson (“if some ACS person showed up on my doorstep to try to arrest me for not wanting to tell the government how often I flush my toilet, I’d get out my wife’s shotgun and get them off my property.”), Sean Hannity (“So the mayor of New Orleans would have used his own buses had the people had been white?”), Pat Buchanan (“If we had to take a million immigrants in, say Zulus, next year, or Englishmen, and put them up in Virginia, what group would be easier to assimilate and would cause less problems for the people of Virginia?”), and of course Bill O’Reilly (“”Does anyone know where the Best Men are? I hope they’re not in the parking lot stealing our hubcaps.”; “What’s the jargon? What’s the jargon? We got coyotes, right? Coyotes and we got wetbacks.”)?  

    Why are these guys still employed, if Rick Sanchez is not?

    • Dan Sullivan

      Really they are a brand of tongue in cheek comedians who unfortunately some believe deliver serious news. Beck is the best at pretending satire and lampoon when he delivers misinformation and slander.

      The left’s comedians like Maher and Stewart do not pretend gravitas, do not excuse slander as satire, and do not harbor hate.

      Fox news Entertainment (the one that donates millions to the GOP)owns the contracts of all of those listed except for the old bigot Buchanan.  Those are the leaders of the Republican Party, including the various KKK, Teabaggers, and other hate groups. Fox won’t fire the on air personalities that still bring in money. I am hearing that Beck has lost most of his sponsors and that might get him out of there.

      Why Buchanan is still around is a mystery.  The only demographic he is appealing to is watching faux news.

      The fat one has the keys to the R’s oxy cabinet and enough money to buy them.  So as long as the fat one hasn’t been jailed for sexual perversion (why go to an island that specializes in paid for sex with a bottle of some other guy’s Viagra?) Some day someone will go public with the large one’s pictures and that will end the party there.

      …that Sanchez is hired by Fox after this whole thing blows over?

      Give it, say, 3 months. Anyone want to take me up on that?

      regards himself as “wise Latino?”

      Sanchez hit a pedestrian, then left the scene to return over an HOUR after the incident (and was clearly intoxicated the whole time). The pedestrian was paralyzed completely on his right side and died a few years later. Unbelievably, he was never charged with anything.

      Did this man reflect the “character” of CNN?  

    • The Question

      Was that really THAT bad?  Did he really attack ALL Jews or just John Stewart?  Because he said there are a lot of Jews in the network TV news business he’s anti-semitic?  Or is it because he has a opinion that he doesn’t think current generation of Jewish-Americans are not an oppressed minority?

      Or because he thinks Fox News is in the business of pissing off white men?

      That makes him a bigot?

      And HE’S thin-skinned?
