So the Travel Channel dips into partisan politics. No where to hide from these clowns.

I've heard him say on his show that illegals are NEEDED here to work in restaurants.

Anthony, you're an a$$ but a charming one.

However, you've lost me as a viewer!

If you were a regular viewer of his show then you shouldn’t be suprised. He put down Bush and America on the Beirut episode...and the South West,USA. The guy is a New York Lib what do you expect...He should shut his mouth and cook(if he still does)...or traveling and eating. I wish some of these limited talent cable show hosts would keep their mouths shut....It’s getting to where I can’t watch anything on tv without hearing Obama or some lib spouting stupidity....Travel Channel and Food were suppossed to be my sanctuaries...

Bourdain thinks they're angry White people? Has he ever seen what he looks like on television. He looks as if he's ready to beat anyone who disagrees with him.

The Travel Channel SUCKS anyway and doesn’t live up to its title. About the only real travel show that has any real usefulness for potential travelers is Samantha Brown’s venues. Of course, she’s a blue blood NY liberal too, but at least she doesn’t rub it in your face like Bourdain feels compelled to do. Lots of crazy, bizarre food and useless information Top Ten programs on that channel. Useful and practical travel information? Not so much.

I actually kind of like Bourdains show. Anthony Bourdain has always been an admitted lefty, more of a libertarian lefty than a socialist lefty though. I will give him credit for being honest about his views on his show and giving conservatives like Nugent a platform. Bourdain and Nugent are good friends and Bourdain did an entire episode at Nugent’s ranch. Nugent had him shooting machine guns and Bourdain was loving it. I thought Nugent might convert him by the end of the show.

Bourdain is the tall, French-looking, carnivorous New Yawk liberal on The Food Channel, who travels the world eating weird things while subliminally bashing all things American. Not to be confused with Andrew Zimmern, the short, fat, Jewish Minnesotan of ambiguous political persuasion on The Food Channel, who also travels the world eating things cut off of other things that would probably make Bourdain turn vegetarian.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

there may be help for Tony yet:

Your heart may be happy about this, but your tongue won’t be. Kitchen Confidential author Anthony Bourdain, speaking for chefs everywhere, describes salt as the one irreplaceable ingredient in the kitchen. “It’s what makes food taste good,” he says. “Traditional, intelligent and skilled used of salt has become confused in the minds of nanny-state nitwits with the sneaking of salt into processed convenience foods. Nothing else encapsulates the mission of the food ideologues better than this latest intrusion: they desire a world without flavor.”

He is heavily sponsored by the Chicoms and has a love affair with every communist dictatorship in the world. He travels to every one, where he is treated like a king. And they pay him very very well for it.

He especially loves Vietnam. They were our enemy when he was a young man, and he takes a great deal of pleasure living in that communist country.

I LMAO at Bourdain’s Beirut, Lebanon show. Mr. tough guy libtard broke down and just about pissed his pants when he got caught up in the latest round of hostilities there and had to be rescued by U.S. Marines (which, to his credit, he was eternally grateful for).

Because of Bourdain’s liberal use of profanity and sexual references in his television show No Reservations, the network has prepended viewer discretion advisories to each segment of each episode. In early seasons, these were a simple screen of white text on a black background, but in more recent seasons, they now include animation that is related in some way to the episode.

Adding to his untamed image, Bourdain is a former user of cocaine, heroin, and LSD. In Kitchen Confidential he writes of his experience in a trendy SoHo restaurant in 1981: “We were high all the time, sneaking off to the walk-in refrigerator at every opportunity to ‘conceptualize.’ Hardly a decision was made without drugs. Cannabis, methaqualone, cocaine, LSD, psilocybin mushrooms soaked in honey and used to sweeten tea, secobarbital, tuinal, amphetamine, codeine and, increasingly, heroin, which we’d send a Spanish-speaking busboy over to Alphabet City to get.” In the same book, Bourdain frankly describes his former addiction, including how he once resorted to selling his record collection on the street in order to raise enough money to score drugs.

Bourdain has been known for being an unrepentant drinker and smoker.

Bourdain is also noted for his not-so-subtle put-downs of celebrity chefs such as Emeril Lagasse and Bobby Flay, and Food Network personalities such as Sandra Lee and Rachael Ray (who is the butt of many jokes on No Reservations).

Another of Bourdain’s major concerns is acknowledging and championing the industrious immigrants — often from Latin America — who make up a majority of the chefs and cooks in many U.S. restaurants, including upscale restaurants, regardless of cuisine. Bourdain considers them to be talented chefs and invaluable cooks, underpaid and unrecognized even though they have become the backbone of the U.S. restaurant industry.
