Most Offensive Fox News Commentators of All-Time
Here are the top 5 Fox News commentators to make headlines by offending people.
These are the people we want representing us abroad. These are examples we want Iranians, Chinese, and Koreans to use to identify the average American. When we turn on the TV, it’s great we have such patriotic, inclusive, and respectful correspondents representing us. Of course, I’m clearly being facetious; these are some of the most…uncouth Fox News hosts in the history of the network…and believe me…there’s been plenty.
Apologies have proved to be nothing more than words. In this clip, you see Fox News correspondent, Eric Bolling, saying that Rep. Maxine Waters should “step away from the crack-pipe. Step away from the Xanex.” He then goes on to compare her to Whitney Houston—not as a singer, as a drug addict. This is utterly ridiculous. He’s still employed but Roland S. Martin can’t make an indirect joke on his own twitter? I’m confused.
This man, Glenn Beck, said that the 3/5ths compromise (which said that a slave would only be recognized as 3/5ths of a human being or his/her white counterpart) was a step to abolish slavery. “If slaves in the south were counted as full human beings, they could never have abolished slavery. They would never be able to do it.” Well, if that was the case, why not abolish slavery altogether? That’s a poor excuse and quite frankly, there was no point in him even commenting on it. His main topic was regarding Congress reading the Constitution out loud and omitting certain pieces. Mr. Beck didn’t like this and said he found it offensive. But I’m sure many Fox News correspondents and hosts would also find it offensive to tout that Africans were the original Kings and Queens. Congress should read some of the words of Ivan Van Sertima out loud.
He wasn’t technically on Fox News. Bill O’Reilly was a guest on The View and made this comment about Muslims — going completely overboard. He said, “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” At that point, both Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg went HAM and they had every reason to. You can not equate all terrorists to Muslims and vice versa. Terrorists and extremists can come have any religion. If a Christian college student in Virginia builds a bomb and blows up a post office, he’s a murderer. If another college student, that happens to be muslim, blows up a post office, he’s a terrorist. The comment was completely foul and unnecessary. The sad part is that many Americans think like him.
At this point, I think its okay to say that Ann Coulter does not have all of her marbles. She doesn't even have her own show but she shows up so much, I'm sure she's on payroll by now. Her comments could continuously be compared to vomit. For example, when she says things like this: “That’s why our [republican] blacks are so much better than their blacks [democrats]. The reason we do have a special place for blacks in American society is because there was slavery—there was Jim Crow. The president who we have now, who has benefited from this—Oh isn’t this great. We have our first Black president. Well he’s half Black and he is not the descendant of Blacks who have suffered these Jim Crow laws.”
She said this on the Sean Hannity show, who has also had his run in with sheer ignorance and lack of respect. A lot of what Sean Hannity does is lie on live television and twist facts. He twisted President Obama's words regarding insurance companies. President Obama said “Insurance executives are bad people,” according to Mr. Hannity. In reality, he really said “insurance executives don’t [jack up prices] because they’re bad people. They do it because it’s profitable.”
And that’s not all, he also compared President Obama’s former church, Trinity Union Church, to a cult and has bolstered that the President didn’t even really want to kill Bin Laden.
“I think they've got a foreign policy that has shown a lot of weakness. I know the President will say ‘well we got bin Laden’— the public does give him credit for it. But it wouldn't have happened if he had his way, and I think that can be proven on tape.”
Now that I think about it, I think Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity are having a secret battle over who can be the most offensive in their comments. I think Ms. Coulter is winning.
Check out these outlandish statements:
“The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist.”
“Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims”
“There are a lot of bad Republicans; there are no good Democrats.”
There’s absolutely nothing else I could say about these comments or these pundits.
