Fired ‘Opie and Anthony’ Host Anthony Cumia: ‘I Will Never Apologize’
variety.com ^ | 7/12/2014 | Maane Khatchatourian

Posted on 07/13/2014 7:09:39 AM PDT by rktman

Anthony Cumia, fired host of Sirius XM’s “Opie and Anthony Show,” defended himself today during his first post-scandal TV appearance.

Cumia was given the boot after making racially-charged comments on Twitter last week.

“I will never apologize for this; I didn’t do anything wrong,” Cumia said on Fox’s “Red Eye” on Saturday morning, as reported by Mediaite. “I go off on tears like this. I curse. I say horrific things about people who piss me off and that’s exactly what I did. Why am I going to apologize and say I am different or I changed? I haven’t. It would be a phony bogus apology. If it happened again, I would do the same thing.”

Stating your opinion and the truth is just plain wrong. You go Anthony. Stick to your guns as long as you can. I guess "pig" and "animal" will be added to the growing list of unusable racsit words. The dictionary keeps shrinking.

Good for him. He took a lesson from the Greaseman. Grovelling kills careers.

Anthony Cumia has no business going around making racially charged comments.

Who does he think he is? Chris Rock?

Good for you Anthony.

The woman who attacked you has not apologized. Why should you?

While you pay the expensive price of free speech, and you are in PC broadcast exile (hopefully short), do say "HI!" to Dr. Laura. While you're on the outs, but are a news item, perhaps you might please mention that since the gay Kenyan has assumed office, many Negroes seem to have taken it as a licence to behave very badly.

Since racial conflict is a desired end of the Democrat Party and this administration, it is important for people to speak out ... and obey the law.

This guy doesn't want to accept that when someone can fire you, it just means you aren't the boss. What a dreary excuse for a hero.

After fifty years of observing how incidents like these between whites and minorities are reported, I've noticed that the standard practice of lib media is to assume that the white party is automatically guilty of whatever crime or incident ensued.

Just look at the Martin-Zimmerman case as prime evidence of that. If Martin had been a white teen, the incident would be seen as the now Black-Hispanic Zimmerman legally defending himself against a white thug.

Sorry, but I have to side with the black victim. She had a right to attack him due to “black rage” and the liberal law of the land states that white people or Hispanic whites must accept their black beat downs properly.

What to do if you if you incite an episode of black rage.

1. Remain completely immobile as the victim pummels you.

2. Do not under any circumstances attempt to defend yourself.

3. If you feel yourself going unconscious, attempt to sincerely apologize to the victim to stay alert. An apology for slavery is the preferred method.

4. After the beat down is complete do NOT under any condition post any disparaging remarks about the victim on social media.

Quite agree. Should have taken his beating like a man; a white man.

Cumia, who called a black woman a “pig” and “an animal” after she allegedly punched him in the face for trying to take a photo,

Wait, he was fired for calling someone who attacked him names?

So if it was a white woman who attacked him and he called her names, he would still have a job?

I don’t know this guy but I absolutely LOVE his attitude toward apologies. He’s doing it right. Just about everyone else does it wrong.

Anthony should have known that in many primitive societies, taking a photo of the natives can be a strong taboo.

You see, the native in question may become irate because a photo is like taking their soul, and will require many ritual cleansings and expensive animal sacrifices. (Cue The Rev Al. Image of Native? Bad Ju-Ju, or in this case, MoJo).

Experienced travelers in primitive lands always ask permission, and may even offer some token of recompense to the potentially offended native.

please check here before photographing natives:

I guess “pig” and “animal” will be added to the growing list of unusable racsit words.....Don’t forget Water Buffalo! When I (proudly) wore a police uniform I was awarded a silver pig tie tack as an award for surviving an attack. I won’t tell you what the gold pig tie tack was for. I didn’t get fired for wearing that tie tack. A lot of respect was given to me though.

Maybe now he will have time to become the leader of the White Resistance, because we need someone to start doing that.

Or, as Popeye would say, "I yam what I yam, and that's all that I yam."

Leftists claim to want diversity, but it's only leftist diversity that they want. A man speaking his non-PC mind is a pariah.

The full interview is fresh air.

I have Sirius/XM but the few times I listened, it was not my cuppa. Even though I can appreciate wit, too much crude and lewd overpowers wit.

Than being said, the man is spot on about the disease of PC.

Opie and Jimmy will go back on the air on Monday and will finish out their contract. No one knows yet what will happen when the contract expires in October.

When a person acts like a pig and an animal, they should be called out on it.

Good for him. NEVER back down.

Ever.

But he decided not to apologize, call out the hypocrisy of Sirius for firing him and is moving on to an internet gig. That makes him the boss.

“Don’t forget Water Buffalo!”...Now that made me laugh. When I lived in Muskegon, the herds would come to the water’s edge in the evening to cool off from the day’s heat.

The young men do that too, and they're never in a cross walk.

I make sure the breeze from my fender makes their saggy britches flap in the wind.

I once used my finger to call over (come here gesture) to a women who was from the Philippines. She got all angry and said that they do this only to donkeys....

I have had women get mad at me for saying “Ma’am” because they say they are not old....

I guess it is women who are the problem right (he ducks)
