Liz Trotta on Foxnews (Fantastic Commentary)
http://www.youtube.com ^ | Published on Mar 9, 2014

I hope (This being my first) that I have posted this correctly?

I saw the commentary by Liz Trotta on Fox this morning and was was amazed at the extent to which she was able to cover 'almost' every aspect of America's decline (the why's and how's) in just a few short minutes!

I was surprised to see it up on youtube already.

Looking around the Internet .. it seems that I wasn't the only one that was impressed!

Sound is not very high quality but decent.

I listened to this. Absolutely EXCELLENT. Hits all the key points. I’m surprised Fox allowed her to make such a great passionate speech.

“Deification of homosexuals!!!” I love it! That is it! As if being gay is something to worship! She’s one heck of a writer / speaker.

I’m a big fan of Liz’s. She’s had a regular commentary gig on FNC Sunday mornings for a few years, but has been missing recently. I’m glad she’s back, and also that they moved her an hour later. Makes it a lot easier for me to catch her comments.

unfortunately the bitta trotta is part of the problem, having called Sara Palin’s baby “it” during the ‘08 campaign and insinuated she brought her baby onstage at the convention as a campaign prop

Liz Trotta was that rare covert conservative in the MSM newsroom. Which explains why we don’t see much of her anymore since she’s “come out.”

Liz was a HORRIBLE person when she said that about Sarah’s baby, and I think FOX took her OFF for that.

I disagree. Fantastic? NO. It was crap-fabulous. More propagandizing about our problems. Analysis it was not. It was a dissconnected grab bag of the same old shibboleths or the other s word, to put us in a bad frame of mind. We are far stronger and deeper than all this crap. Stuff it Trotta where the sun don’t shine.

I was hoping to find a verbatim transcript of her commentary. We watched it and it was powerful. Maybe we’re seeing the beginning of the end of political correctness. Homosexuals = “repugnant”.

Maybe she has rethought that statement and is making up for it in her newer commentaries. The only one I would call "it" are adult transsexuals who have rendered themselves neither gender.

I don’t know this woman. What was her context for calling a baby an it? That sounds cruel but I don’t know the context. For instance, I had a classic British child care book once in which Penelope Leach, the author, decided to call babies “it” in there instead of picking a gender.

Good commentary but nothing new here. How does one account for the 40%-45% who still approve of Obama? It’s demographics, demographics, demographics.
Schools, colleges, universités have all embraced the PC culture and dumbed down our educational system,

For someone commenting on a national news channel (even FNC) to call the gay lifestyle “repugnant” is certainly going to draw some enemy fire. I don’t know if, however, what she is saying is something that hasn’t been better stated many times over to seemingly deaf ears.

Although I agree with Trotta here, I can never forget how astonishingly vile she’s been towards Palin through the years. Besides the calling of Trig as an “it,” and her accusations of Palin using him as a political prop, I also recall her grinning from ear-to-ear over that discredited, lie-filled, poison-pen book that McGinniss wrote, turning on a grotesquely faux sincerity and waxing what a “gooood” and professional reporter McGinniss was. Trotta never misses an opportunity to trash Palin.

In fact, after one too many times of these incidents, I stopped watching FoxNews on Sunday mornings altogether. Haven’t tuned in for a single minute for well over a year. Wasn’t even sure Trotta was still on.

For sure she was dead on complaining about the “deification of homosexuals”.

These days the media and rats act like “coming out” is like being a hero who saved lives or something. It's ridiculous.

You did good, first time poster or not.

Great commentary by Liz. I've read her for years before Fox wisely handed her a commentary spot, on "Conservative Chronicle."

As to the posters denigrating Liz, having been a delegate to the '08 Convention, I never heard nor read anything like what you state. I'm not saying that she didn't say anything like it or the rest that is posted here, just that I never caught it, not being in a position to watch Fox except up at their box from the Convention floor and reading the dailies every day.

I'd have been furious at her, had I ever heard about such statements or read about them. As enough of you here on FR, say that you did, I'm assuming that it was all first hand commentary.

Hopefully, I'll do some searches and find them as nothing disappears on the internet, except, of course, BHO's birth certificate, his parent's marriage record, College papers, grades, etc., Bill Clinton's records and Hilalry's college dissertation!

Hopefully, I haven’t made myself persona non grata to some folks here.

I had no idea that this woman (Liz Trotta) had said or done any of the things which have been attributed to her about Sarah Palin or Trig.

I have only heard her three or four times on Fox and thought that this commentary was worth posting.

I Really like Sarah Palin and would never support someone who would belittle her son Trig.

...to call the gay lifestyle “repugnant” is certainly going to draw some enemy fire.

She said that "many Americans still find the homosexual lifestyle repugnant." You can't say that that her statement is false! And who the heck cares what the "enemy" thinks of it?

She also said, among other things, "When was the last time you saw an American flag at a Puerto Rican Day parade?" She was in essence referring to a sense of general loss of common American values amongst some racial and ethnic groups in the country, which has a lot of validity, but I'm not sure about the specific absence or presence of American flags at such events. (More to the point,I don't think you would ever see an American flag - except being burned or mutilated in some way - at a La Raza event.)

There was also a remark about the overloading of women in the government foreign relations establishment in deference to Affirmative Action, resulting in a more wimpy stance toward enemy regimes.

All of these are courageously defiant of the doctrine of "political correctness" on the airwaves. I should hope that Liz Tratta's corporate employer doesn't cower to leftist complaints about what she said and doesn't take retaliatory action against her.
