Ugly stuff, this.
Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld — host of Fox’s “Red Eye” (more aptly named “Brown Eye” by virtue of the waste Gutfeld emits through it, ) chose to crawl up our ally, Canada’s ass, in a 4-minute segment engaging a dubious panel of what, “experts?”…hardly; intellectuals?, nope; government officials?, absolutely not. Exactly what the hell are these guys and why should America care about these scurrilous, absurd opinions? You tell me. Even so, this is how it went, according to my beloved Raw Story.
Reporting that Canada intends to pull forces from Afghanistan in order to retool, retrain, restore and rearm its troops, Sphincter Gutfeld suggested:
“Isn’t this the perfect time to invade this ridiculous country? They have no army!”
Panelist Doug Benson, a comedian, replied: “I didn’t even know they were in the war. I thought that’s where you go when you don’t want to fight. Go chill in Canada.”
WTF? Why on earth would we ever want to invade Canada? Where do these right-wingers get this crazy crap? Why is Canada “ridiculous?”
It got worse. Watch the clip and read Raw Story’s report.
By maligning Canada, this assembly demeaned its contribution, support, friendship and loyalty to our nation, not to mention cast aspersions on Canada’s brave soldiers who, along with their families, paid the ultimate price alongside our troops in countless battles, and most recently in Afghanistan. As of Saturday last, Canada has sacrificed 116 soldiers to the US mission in Afghanistan.
“I think it is an uninformed view,” Minister of National Defence Peter Gordon MacKay told CTV. “It is crass. It is insensitive and it is in fact disgusting given the timing, when Canada is just receiving back four fallen heroes today.”
“There should be an apology to the families in particular and to the Canadian Forces and to Canada generally, given the sacrifice and the commitment that we have demonstrated in Afghanistan,” he added.
Apologies are easily made and soon forgotten. What stands are our actual words and actions, which when recorded, remain indefinitely. If it “was not his intent” to “demean,” Gutfeld wouldn’ have conceived this panel discussion, wrote or at least edited the copy for segues, included it in the script, read it from the prompter and taken such enjoyment in slandering Canada and its army.
What a miserable excuse for a human being. PLEASE NOTE: In saying that, I don’t mean to infer that Gutfeld is a thick, dull, dim-witted, hateful prick intent on provoking fear, hate and polarization among Americans; a lazy-minded, uninformed, bone-headed, tool of the right wing whose last original thought died of neglect and malnutrition decades ago; or a mean-spirited, antagonistic, narcissistic, butt-munching ass clown whose reflection in a mirror gives him an erection. I’m not saying any of these things, because if I would, I may be pressured to apologize, in which case I’d gladly retract the part about the chubby.
I’m so sick of these lying miscreants and their requisite apologies that I could piss on their shoes.
