Skip to comments.Keith Olbermann: Who Cares Anyway?
Posted on 04/15/2011 7:47:28 PM PDT by kevinaw2
As I am not a viewer of Joy Behar or a follower of Keith Olbermann, I missed the bizarre turn of events regarding his tweets. S.E. Cupp was a guest on Behar's show defending the defunding of Planned Parenthood and opposition to taxpayer funded abortions. Mr. Olbermann being ever the gentleman suggested the world would be a better place if her parents had sought out the services of Planned Parenthood. Given the original topic of abortion, it's not difficult to conclude he'd prefer that S.E. Cupp had been aborted. Amazing. When he was called on it, he said he meant they could have sought PP's counseling services. Ok, so they could have counseled her parents not to have children? Wow, either way, no S.E. Cupp.
Putting aside the fact that suggesting such a fate for anyone is obscene, let me focus on the case for SE Cupp's having been brought into this world. Like many people I first became aware of and came to admire her on Fox News's "Red Eye". I never miss it. EVER. While I was disappointed that this true blue conservative (raised in Massachusetts no less) is an atheist, my dismay is tempered by the fact that she is not one to ridicule people of faith like Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins. All the more respect for her because her respect for the faithful shows a just prudence in assessing herself.
Wishing a human being consigned to oblivion at the moment of conception is bad in every instance, but marginally more tragic when considering the abundant qualities brought to life in the form of Ms. Cupp. She possesses a keen eye,quick wit,clever insights and expresses it all with clarity and a near comic flirtatiousness. Fine characteristics that accent classic beauty. As an avid hunter she can make a city boy like myself whose never wielded a gun feel a bit inadequate. She is it seems to modern punditry what Carole Lombard was to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Such a presence has the ability to make a 44 year old single man ponder an alternate fate had such a woman been met twenty years ago.
Now, back to Olbermann.........
Why do we conservatives get so bent out of shape by this guy? He may be an icon of the far left, but so is Che' Guevara and Saul Alinksy. His tweets even if meant to be funny which it isn't is nonetheless a reflection of intellectual cowardice as it reflects his inability to process intelligent,informed dissent. That he would dismiss any one's life as a proper case for abortion is bad enough, but more importantly it reveals a hatred and intolerance of dissent.
As an icon of the far left he says he embraces the faith of tolerance, but like many in the left who worship at that altar, it is a dogma advanced as a means to perpetuate their specific and in their mind justified brand of hate and intolerance. He is a walking, talking contradiction and for all his faux intellectualism, he is nothing more than a vile,hate filled, intolerant old coot. He is destined it seems to spend his elder years pitching fist sized walnuts at those "damn kids who won't stay off his lawn".
Guys like Olbermann always undo themselves and wishing a 30+ year old woman should have been aborted is more evidence of his irrelevancy. God willing (irony noted) we will be blessed by an ever blossoming conservative icon like S.E. Cupp. She is relevant and compelling. Olbermann? Who Cares Anyway?
A local talk show host spoke of this story and said simply that he can’t imagine a heterosexual male wishing such on an example of womanhood as S.E. Cupp. Take that Keith!
Cupp is quite the hottie!
Olberdork is ready for the padded cell.
The time for us being nice guys is over. Let’s call the SOBs - SOBs. It’s the truth so what is wrong with telling the truth about Olbermann, Schulz, Madcow and even Chrissy Matthews (who apparently is slowly losing his mind).
We have the worst leftists in the history of American politics but they pose as “progressive Democrats”. BS+.
They are the lowest of the low, right next to child pedophiles and NAMBLAs.
Others, like Durbin, Schumer, Reid, Pelosi, Boxer, Waters, Lee, etc. are just plan liars, fools, and traitors.
The White House should be called the “Red House” and Obama’s advisors should be known as a “Ship of Fools”, or as “A bowl of cereal - full of flakes, nuts, and fruits”.
I’ve been around Congress and DC for over 40 years, many of them as a reporter and I can say that this is the worst bunch of bastards, ever, in the US COngress and White House.
They are destroying America in every segment, from academia/schools, religion, economics, culture, sexual sanity, food policies, energy production, even the air we breathe.
Olbermann is a verbal symbol of the diarrhea of the mind that liberals and the left have. But they are also a cancer in the soul, and cancer kills.
Let’s call them what they are, fools, liars, hatemongers, powermongers, and even traitors, because that is what they are.
No more Mr. Wimp. No more Mr. Nice Guy!
No surrender, no retreat.
Who is Keith Olbermann?
Ignoring them isn’t enough.
Time to take out the trash.
Slobbermann likes to think that he is the modern
day Edward R Murrow, the icon of all left wing
news media types. He loves to pontificate about
the latest disrespectful outrage from the lips
of Rush Limbaugh just before he says something
that makes Rush seem like Billy Graham. Typical
liberal, typical liberal “civility”.
He is a former sportscaster of some minor accomplishments.
Your entire rant is spot on but it has been going on a long time. Look up Communist Goals, The Frankfurt School, Julius Hammer and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and it is laid out for all to see. The only surprise is how successful they have been.
Yet, they have been at it for over 100 years, even before the Communists took over in Russia they were working here. Julius Hammer, a man Vladimir Lenin sent here to raise money for the Communists, started the Communist Party USA in 1907.
Every Democrat President since Woodrow Wilson has been a closet Communist. Until this bunch in power now they were always operating under the radar. Joe MacArthy exposed them in the ‘50’s and was demonized for it. These guys are the sixties and seventies radicals who have grown up, if Communists ever grow up.
If you were around D.C. for 40 years as a reporter I don’t know how you missed it. However, perhaps you can comment on one of my opinions. I think that D.C. dinners and cocktail parties are much underrated as centers of influence. I think having certain attitudes and positions, all of them Left-leaning, are key to getting invited to most of them. I also think the women often hold sway at these gatherings. Egos overcome political positions most of the time and it is at those gatherings that egos are massaged.
I thought the Olber-moron died or went to prison; hadn’t heard the name in a while.
