So let me understand this -- the 89 year old Nazi Von Brunn ran into the Holocaust museum in Washington, DC and opened fire on (and killed) a security guard, and Shepard Smith is remonstrating with conservative bloggers who aren't drinking the Obama kool-aid?
I am watching Shepard's show dumbfounded. He is pointing his smug, short stubby finger at us for mistreating Obama (no mention of how Obama has treated the Constitution, Capitalism, and our allies). He is yelling at us for calling Obama a Muslim (he was born a Muslim, don't shoot the messenger, man), and for questioning the origins of his birth (vault copy, anyone?). But what does this have to do with the Nazi Von Brunn? I do not know. The Nazi Von Brunn website, wildly gross, is not a diatribe against Obama. It's a Jew hating white supremacist cesspool. This is a man who is a Hitlerite -- who wants to exterminate the Jewish people -- and yeah, he hates black people, too.
Was the condescending Shepard Smith scolding the leftist/Islamic alliance last week when Abdulhakim Muhammad gunned down US soldiers at the military recruiting center, justifying it by saying it was jihad? Did he talk all afternoon discussing the violent ideology of the Koran?
How relieved everyone in the media was (particularly Shep) that the shooter was not a Muslim -- now they can talk about it, now they can spend all day on it and analyze every irrelevant factoid.
Shepard Smith is scolding us for the 89 year old Nazi Von Brunn -- a nut case who served six years in federal prison in the 1980s. Von Brunn had walked into the headquarters of the Federal Reserve System with two guns, a package he said contained dynamite, and a
desire to improve the nation's economy, D.C. police said. A certifiable sicko.
How amusing that Shepard feels the need to take this opportunity to scold us for doing the job the media and schmucks like him won't do. He also took the opportunity to vouch for the DHS report on right wing extremism. You know, the one that targeted vets, tea party attendees, Jewish extremists -- as the real threats to the country. The 89 year old Nazi Von Brunn served in World War II -- are those the new terror threats? WW2 vets? Scary stupidity.
FOX could do so much better than this pompous elitist. If Beck proved anything, it's that if you are halfway talented, your numbers will go through the roof. Beating the competition when you're on FOX is no biggie. The competition of CNN, MSNBC et al drives people to FOX. Leading the leftwing media asshats is not the bar to beat. FOX numbers are the bar. I am sure, for example, if FOX dropped Beck into Greta's spot, he would increase their numbers at 10pm by 30%.
But Shep sucks. And Shep has always sucked, and it's time to get rid of the deadwood. I don't know where he gets off talking down to us, but it's not his job to defend Obama and to try to tie African American racism into this Jew hating incident. Funny thing, though, he didn't discuss Jew hatred at all. Nope. An 89 year old Nazi goes into the Holocaust museum and shoots up the place, and Shep is whining about the lack of O-love. And that racism is driving that lack o'love. Earth to Shep: Americans are angry because Obama is destroying the country. And what does that have to do with an 89 year old nazi shooting up the Museum devoted to mass extermination of the Jews?
Why does Shep have his panties all in a twist? Nazis aren't new. Or special. Look at all of Europe during World War II. Systemically they killed their Jews, every country (save the Danes), with gusto.
Shep, don't preach to us about anger. This from a guy who hit a reporter with his car as she saved a parking space. He was arrested for it too. (Above photo is Smith's mugshot) Yup. And who can forget his leftist asshattery last month, when Fox anchor Shepard Smith, on a post-broadcast Webcast, lost it when discussing his opposition to waterboarding, etc — bellowing: "We are America!" (slamming the table) "I don't give a rat's ass if it helps. We are AMERICA! We do not f---ing torture!!"
He has got to go.
UPDATE: Got this from a holocaust survivor:
I have followed your blog for quite a while. I lost an entire branch of my family in the Holocaust, and I am old enough to remember the pain my parents felt.
This Shepherd Smith is a cowardly narcissist who doesn't have any idea of history. Glenn Beck at least can see the handwriting on the wall. I am boycotting Shepherd Smith from this day forward, and I respectfully request that all your readers do the same. Maybe we can give his time slot to Glenn, so more people can hear a real man, not an overegoed bloviator. Thank you for your work in exposing those who want to return to the days of the Nazis. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
