Shep Smith Makes Apparent Slam Of Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day As ‘National Day Of Intolerance’
http://www.mediaite.com ^ | August 1st, 2012 | by Tommy Christopher

As one of the main charms of Fox News’ Studio B With Shepard Smith is that anything can happen, and it usually does. For example, as Smith was tossing to commercial Wednesday afternoon, he took what seemed like a hard shot at former Arkansas Governor and Fox stablemate Mike Huckabee‘s “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day,” invented to celebrate that restaurant chain’s opposition to marriage equality.

Delivering one of those banal date-related factoids that news shows throw out there every so often, Smith said “It’s National Badminton Day,” then added “forget National Day of Intolerance, let’s just stay with badminton.” Smith has previously express support for marriage equality.

Maybe Shep should eat a bit more chicken and a lot less c***. :-)

I’ve never really cared for this guy. He should learn to stick to the subject and deliver the details with as little commentary as possible.

So according to this idiot, people expressing a belief that marriage is as directed by the Word of God a covenant between a man and a women, are intolerant?
Okay shep. Exactly what is it when one asswad hates a whole group of people simply because they have a different opinion on a subject then he does? Oh yeah YOU ARE THE INTOLERANT ONE........

I am tired of seeing this joke on TV. FOX News has been in overdrive lately with the “fair and balanced” stuff.

Shep is an untalented liberal nut that has an annoying voice. His show is so boring I have FOX turned off during his shows which are way too long!

When they spout idiotic drivel we're supposed to be tolerant and honor free speech. When we stand up for American values and morality, we're usually shouted down and told we're "intolerant" and exhibiting "hate speech."

So much for "free speech" and "tolerance," as it only works one way for the hard left.

So I don't watch him on TV.

Now I'm compelled to wallow in these forum reviews, can't he just go away?

In some ways Fox News is the MOST dishonest cable news network.

Homosexuals such as Shemp must stay in the closet.

Elitist Rockefeller Republicans must pretend to be Reagan conservatives.

On MSNBC and CNN, there is no pretension, those boys and girls are not pretending, they show their true colors every minute of every day and their true color sexually is pink and ideologically is pinko.

Today was also the anniversary of the beginning of the Warsaw uprising.

Rather than "badminton Day" Shemp should have made mention of that.

Shemp is a fool.

It’s been a long time since I considered Fox News to have charms at all, let alone this Gallus-Fil-A.

Well, dunno what’s up with Shep, but I happened to be driving past the Hollywood, CA Chick-fil-a store at around 8:00 after work tonight, and the line was still around the corner. Along with about half a dozen dispirited protesters on the corner.

Hollywood, California.

I took this as a good sign.

“forget National Day of Intolerance, ... “

tol·er·ate (tl-rt)
tr.v. tol·er·at·ed, tol·er·at·ing, tol·er·ates
1. To allow without prohibiting or opposing; permit.
2. To recognize and respect (the rights, beliefs, or practices of others).
3. To put up with; endure.

The homosexualists have tolerance. What they want is acceptance and approval.
“Intolerance” was when authorities would thrust a white-hot poker into the rectum of a homosexual, as was done to Edward II by his wife, possibly upon grounds of fraud in the inception regarding their marriage.

We conservatives certainly aren’t saying we should return to those days as, judging from the reaction of the homos and their allies, they seem to think following Dan Cathy’s innocuous statement of opinion on the way things have been for thousands of years, as set forth in the Bible, the Torah and the Kuran, and the way they should be. One would think the left whould tolerate this difference of opinion with a liberal attitude.
We’re just saying that if the Brotherhood of Shemps get their: “We All Have AIDs!” agitprop commercials, that notions of fairness/equal time require that the (great) majority of us be able to respond by saying: “No, we don’t. And here’s why ...”. As just one thing.

Yes, I am intolerant. The perverts are trying to tell us that we as a society should take two guys having anal sex with each other and put that in the same category as a man and a woman. Why should I tolerate that? Someone please explain that to me.

I can’t stand him. When the Mighty Mississup flooded here, Shep came to town. I made sure to go downtown to see him up close to check to see whether he actually wears eyeliner and mascara. SURE ENOUGH!

My least favorite Fox personality. A sports doofus who got pushed into a job way over his head.
His grasp of history and politics came out of a cereal box.

I emailed fox complaining. Probably won’t amount to anything. However, I reminded them that if they want to alienate their Conservative Christian viewers and experience the same ratings as CNN and MSNBC go right ahead.

‘National Day Of Intolerance’

Shep...you think of that little ditty while you were filling up with gas? You know, the guys in the middle east who pump the stuff out of the ground and whack the heads off of homosexuals? You fill up with some “intolerance juice”?

Sorry but Shep Smith should be on MSNBC, NOT FOX! I can understand having different political differences on a Network but do NOT understand allowing such bias on FOX’s basic NEWS shows!

We have all the bias we need on other networks. Please don’t let obvious bias become the standard on FOX news. I’m not talking about the opinion shows, but the actual supposedly NEWS shows, Shep on the news is absolutely biased just like NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and there you have it...

Are Shep Smith and Anderson Cooper going to the gay “kiss-in” on Friday? Inquiring minds want to know.

Maybe Shep and Andy can give Americans a live sodomy performance to really prove to the masses how prudish we all are. Are you “up” for it, gents?
