Anthony Cumia Gets Attacked... then Fired.
American Thinker ^ | 7-7-2014 | Colin Flaherty

Posted on 07/07/2014 5:15:23 AM PDT by servo1969

The dominoes began falling Tuesday night, after midnight. The black woman in a mini-skirt who punched Cumia in the face in Times Square in Manhattan and called him a “white m-f-” probably did not know he was a national radio personality. To her, “Ant” was just a white photographer taking her picture. And she did not like that.

Cumia liked being attacked even less. He called her lots of names -- the kind that would have gotten him fined had he said them on the air during his stint as a terrestrial radio star. But no N-bombs.

That is all he did: “I knew not to put my hands on her,” he tweeted. “Never felt my life was threatened. Was ultra p-ed. Called her bad words. Then she punched me 5 more times,” Then five blacks started giving me s-!”

All the while taking more pictures of his street-walking assailant.

Soon the late night violence was over, the but real attacks were just beginning.

The Daily News, the Washington Post and the Daily Mail of London and others pronounced Cumia a racist because he said the woman who savagely attacked him was a “savage.”

“It's really open season on white people,” Cumia tweeted. “No recourse. Fight back and you're a racist. The predators know this.”

Truth is the new hate speech: “There’s a deep seeded problem with violence in the black community,” Cumia said. “Try to address it and you’ll be exiled to racistville. But it’s real.”

Not to the Washington Post: “Whether or not Cumia was assaulted is not actually the point,” pronounced the Post house liberal, Alyssa Rosenberg. She did not like the fact the Cumia did not like someone punching him and calling him nasty racial names.

Fight back and you're a racist. The predators know this.

Yep, which is exactly why we're reading about all these knockout attacks. Obama has given his blessing. Attack someone and you're a hero, you could be his son.

Sometimes the truth hurts and in these situations, truth is always the first casualty.

He should have put his thoughts into a question type form instead of declaratively stating that such and such is absolutely true. When it comes to “race” stating such as the absolute truth always gets you in trouble. His attacker it seems is yet another black racial bigot, are her views the majority view, why are those views tolerated and are they reinforced by popular culture?

A few months ago I was waiting on line in a bagel shop and this black guy was at the front. He got a bagel and a coffee and when he tasted the coffee he got mad and said he “axed for sugar”...I thought he was going to throw the coffee. Then incredibly, or maybe no so incredibly, he accused the counter guy of being racist! LOL! I started cracking up and he glared at me, he was freakin’ serious! What a jackass, the guy forgets to give him sugar yes because he is racist. Yes, I can just see the KKK holding secret meetings in a basement “Hey boys, today we’re gonna git those dayum dirty neegrows by taking their SUGAR from their coffee! Yeah, that’ll show ‘em!!” LOL!

“Anthony experienced an assault from one of America’s most protected classes of people, the black street predator,” Newburn said. “The latter has the impulse control and emotional maturity level of a preadolescent, and animal instincts that react violently to any trivial imposition or insult — real or imagined. The MSM quickly comes to its defense without thought to its non-black victims. Predator-enabling at its worst.”

Perfect description.

When you axe and don't get what you want, that's a micro-aggression. Having suffered a micro-aggression, he was justified in his wrath - at least, in his mind.

Don’t apologize Anthony or you’re no better than the people you attack on your show.

As a long time O and A listener there is much more to the story than is being reported. The fact is that Anthony has said just as politically incorrect things, if not more so, on the air on just about a daily basis with never so much as slap on the wrist by Sirius in the last 10 years they have been with the company. The difference this time is that their contract expires in October and they have been very vocal lately about how Sirius management has been controlling more and more what they can say or do. They have also been very publicly mulling leaving Sirius and moving to a full time pod cast format so they could have full control over their show. It appears to me that Sirius saw the writing on the wall and decided to pull a “first strike” hoping to tar them with the “racist” brush before they became a competitor, basically saying “you can't quit, because you're fired!”

You know he’s not racist in the least, matter of fact he did this expose a few years ago to show how cab drivers will not pick up blacks. He had a black guy stand in the street and raise his hand and Cumia stood behind him around 10 feet away and raised his hand, only he was dressed up as a Nazi as well. He called it “Heiling a cab” and almost every time the taxi would drive by the black guy and stop for Cumia. Picking up the Nazi was more appropriate to them than picking up the black guy.

“Fight back and you’re a racist.”

So be it.

I’ve heard Rush say on many occasions that the truth will get you in trouble nowadays.

that's a micro-aggression

Never heard the term "micro-agression" but I like it.

And it does go the other way too. I was at a fast food restaurant and I noticed the black girl behind the counter was really annoyed at having to take my order. Rolling eyes, sighing, not happy having to make change, etc.

As I ate, I watched her handling other customers. She acted perfectly normal taking the order from a black person, but had an instant personality change if a white person was at the front of the line. It was way more than obvious.

I guess this was a case of her dealing with her racism through micro-aggression. I considered pointing it out to the store manager, but she was black too so I just went on with the rest of my day. Never been back to that restaurant.

You’re lucky she was taking orders and not preparing the food in back.

Micro-aggression is the hot term of art in the Critical Race Studies field. See Unmasking 'racial micro aggressions', for example.

Take any Human Being and treat them like a feral animal and feed them but do not demand any good behavior and you will get exactly what you have raised, you will get a feral animal.

It is the myth of the Noble Savage taken to it’s illogical extreme...

It doesn’t matter what race you start with, as history has proven, raise an animal and society will reap animals...

Opie wasn’t fired and may well keep working
on Sirius XM Satellite radio. Which subscribers can
get online as well. Apparently there’s an O&A
channel which was their show and ‘pre show stuff’.

It’s said listeners and advertisers may have
been offended potentially. The FCC doesn’t step
in re: content on sat radio. As far as I know they
are only on sat. radio. I do get XM but don’t pay extra for stuff like Stern
and in fact take a few bucks off by not getting adult
comedy/ explicit language channels.

Black cabbies don't like picking up black passengers. Especially young black men by themselves.

Wonderful, so now white people are racist even when they don’t mean to be racist. LOL! Anytime I talk to a black person I better watch what I say. Oh but wait a minute, I can’t watch what I say because I may not be aware of my “racial microaggression”. This is incredible. Like the one example they give at the start of that article, what was the stewardess suppose to do? Get the white people to move to the back of the plane so she does not betray any “racial microaggression”?? This reminds of that football player Warren Sapp getting offended because the waitress said “What would you boys like?” He was offended by the “racial microaggression” so he refused to leave a tip. This is brilliant though, I am going to be using that term all over the place. “Hello Dan” “Hello Bob. Gee Dan did I just detect a little “racial microaggression” on your part?” “Hey Dan did you watch the game yesterday?” “Yes Bill, by the way: Is that a little “racial microaggression” you are throwing my way?”

I remember when communist actor Danny Glover made a huge deal about cabs not picking him up, I think this was back in 2001. And Rudy Giuliani being the Hollywood suck ass he is, demanded cabs pick up everybody no matter what or they lose their license. So he had TLC agents go out on the street and dress like gangstas and try to hail a cab, and if the cab drove right by them, another TLC agent would pull the cab over and suspend his license right on the spot and tow the cab. So what was result? Cab drivers got robbed and killed. And it was later revealed that communist actor Danny Glover really had no issues with cabs, he just made pretend he did because he was promoting his movie called “3 AM”. What was the movie about? Cab drivers.
