Eric Bolling’s Pathetic ‘Boobs on the Ground’ Apology on Fox News Isn’t Enough – He Needs To Be Fired

eric-bolling-sexistI recently ran across Eric Bolling’s “apology” for his disgustingly sexist “boobs on the ground” remark he made a few days ago on Fox News, in reference to the United Arab Emirates’ first female fighter pilot flying bombing missions in Syria. And while he made an effort to at least sound sincere, it was complete and utter b.s.

Here, take a look for yourself:

“Fox News has received letters from viewers including from women in the military and I’m taking them to heart. Therefore, let me speak clearly and sincerely. I’m sorry for what I said. I believe that Major Al Mansouri is a hero. She’s courageous, brave and she deserves our praise and not inappropriate jokes. She has my admiration and my very, very sincere gratitude.”

Right at the beginning he shows that he isn’t being sincere with this apology. “Fox News has received letters…” that’s why he’s apologizing. The backlash over his comments has been so severe that he was forced to “apologize.”

I’ve watched enough of Bolling on Fox News to know what an arrogant blowhard he is. The best way I can describe him for anyone who might not be all that familiar with him would be to envision a “meathead bully” type who enjoys trying to make others feel bad about themselves.

But this fake “apology” isn’t enough. He needs to be fired. Because let’s not pretend that this is the first time Bolling has said something disgustingly offensive. Heck, he just hosted a segment where he blatantly endorsed the idea that our government needs to start profiling Muslims in the United States.

Bolling has made a career out of saying juvenile, idiotic comments that are clearly intended to mock or belittle other people, while pandering to the ignorance of those viewers who support him.

His “apology” seems like something that was handwritten by someone who works in the public relations department at Fox News who told him he had no choice but to read it on-air. Because that’s most likely exactly what it is.

Now, do I think anything will happen to Bolling? Of course not. This is Fox News after all. The network builds much of its content on racism, sexism and other highly insensitive content. Like calling Michelle Obama fat or mocking domestic violence.

Honestly, when you look at Fox News as a whole, Bolling’s “boobs on the ground” comment isn’t really different from anything else said by various personalities on the network. Hell, it fits right in with the overall tone of nearly everything the network produces.

So, while he should absolutely be fired for this recent comment mocking a female fighter pilot, I’d be more shocked if he wasn’t actually given a raise considering this seems to be the type of despicable behavior that’s rewarded by Fox News.

    The most noted absent of outrage in this part; Sarah Palin. She did not utter single word in anger toward Eric Bolling.

    Hypocrite. As always.

        True. Sarah, Cruz, and Fox News ALWAYS accuse Liberals/Progressive for practice double standards yet they are the ones who are doing that!

        But they’d be right. Progressives will never get well in the head if they remain in denial. Let’s turn over a new leaf and practice honesty, progressives!

        You ASSUMED. I wasn’t silent on Bashir, I did called out for his firing hours before his firing.

        Oh man, unlike you, I don’t overlook. I have zero love for Cruz yet I reported on someone who called Cruz ‘wetb**k’ which result in that commenter permenantly booted from HuffPo blog.

        Already? That letter only was released this morning. Whoa that is sure fast which is very unusual for Sarah. She must have gotten someone to doing the work for her because it normally take her 24 hours or more to express the outrage on her own.

  • Ivan Renko

    Fox News, please fire Eric Bolling so people who hate him as much as they hate your network won’t be forced to watch him anymore.

    • Macdoodle

      If so many people hate FOX why has it been the number 1 rated cable news program 12 years running?

      • James B

        Correlation does not imply causation.

      • Dubya

        Goes to show this country is full of freaks and populace ignoramous!

      • Ivan Renko

        Two big reasons aside from viewers who like the network:

        1) Because of liberal blogs blogs depend on them for content.

        2) And liberal commenters who say they hate Fox watch it regularly so they don’t miss out on anything likely to be used on blogs that day as the Fox Outrage of the Day. For the cool factor of having seen it in real time, thus somehow validating their outage as being genuine.

        Fox plays to that market sector. That market sector benefits with more content. It’s a codependent relationship.

  • SamB

    Bolling, his cronies and Fox are all from the same scrip. They are all disgustingly insensitive and crass.
    Expecting anything more than the “so called apology” is not going to happen since what he said first is what he meant to say. Scripted apologies mean nothing…

    • Ivan Renko

      This is where you lose people and show what liberal blogs’ true intentions are in a case like this.

      It’s not enough to focus on Bolling’s terribly insensitive joke, alone. The outrage has to extend to the network and its viewers. The viewers who don’t watch Fox because they hate the network, that is.

      The same people here who get upset that anyone would be offended by Obama’s coffee cup salute, somehow think Eric Bolling’s boob joke is a major national incident.

      Conservatives are the real hypocrites, though.

      • Cemetery Girl

        There is a pattern of offensive content on the network though. Not long before this was the discussion on cat calls not being sexual harassment and instead being an appreciated way for men to be able to voice their approval of a woman’s looks. The “joke” is a specific problem with one member of their own air talent. All other jokes or comments made by others would also be specific problems. Yet, when you consider them all together it indicates a permissive attitude on that channel.

      • Ivan Renko

        There is a pattern of highly offensive and misogynistic comments made by people on MSNBC, too.

      • Cemetery Girl

        I don’t watch MSNBC, just like I don’t watch Fox News. I don’t keep a running tally of offensive comments made by either, but I wouldn’t be supportive of the action by either one.

      • FuzzyBunnyFeet

        Please provide evidence for your claim of “a pattern of … misogynistic comments made by people on MSNBC”. I know about some controversies during the 2008 campaigns, but I’m unaware of such comments recently.

      • Ivan Renko

        All the misogynistic comments made by Chris Matthews, David Shuster, and Keith Olbermann in 2008, Ed Schultz calling Laura Ingraham a ‘news slut’ twice in 2011, and Bashir’s vulgar comment about defeating in Sarah Palin’s mouth, in 2013.

        KO once called Michelle Malkin a ‘big, mashed up bag of meat with lipstick on it’. Called Ann Coulter a ‘horse’ and made a vulgar reference to her as a c###. Said Hillary Clinton should be beaten to death. The list goes on and on (and on) with that guy.

      • FuzzyBunnyFeet

        As I said, I know about the 2008 controversies. Bashir resigned from MSNBC following his disgusting comment. Olbermann was let go in early 2011. Following his slur, Ed Schultz took unpaid leave, and MSNBC issued a statement of condemnation.
        1. What have you got recently and
        2. How does this mitigate what has been happening on Fox “news”?

      • Ivan Renko

        I don’t think what Bolling said was a firing offense strictly on what he said, nor was it a firing offense based on the specious argument put forth here that there’s a reoccurring problem with misogyny on the network, which amounted to Bolling’s comment and a panel discussion on catcalls that Bolling wasn’t involved in.

        That’s the crux of Allen Clifton’s argument, which CG seemed to be agreeing with. I think if you’re going to call for someone to be fired for an offense, then your principles should be such that you’ve been outspoken about it no matter what your ideology, or who you like and don’t like, or what network it was said on.

      • Sandy Greer

        I could make the case that our Principles shine their brightest light when we fight for those with whom we disagree.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        what bolling said was not offensive at all,,,,,,,,,,,,
        what midget gutfeld said was promoting the useless ( mutually “agreed” upon) rant that women cannot drive/park
        ====================================
        it is interesting that certain righties such as coulter and palin were silent

      • Ivan Renko

        You just said it wasn’t offensive (speaking for all women, presumably). Why then is it interesting to you that Palin and AC haven’t weighed in publicly?

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        because many have considered it offensive. Nice try crybaby ivan– U & I know that if ed schultz or chris matthews said this the rightwing females would chat for 10 days about it– U need diapers

      • Ivan Renko

        I told CG this yesterday, but I wish I had a buck for every time someone here says what would happen “if” someone on Fox said something.

      • MS

        To be fair, not being mean or anything, Coultair is unattractive both physically and socially. I have never been able to watch or listen to her for more than a few seconds. She is repulsive on so many levels. And, most importantly, she has chosen to put her face out there. Just saying….

      • Robert Byrd

        Replace Coulter with Clinton, still works.

      • Ivan Renko

        There’s no ‘to be fair’ reason for calling her the C word, or a horse face, or a man, or a ‘tranny’, MS. I’m not referring to people simply calling her ugly.

      • Well, let’s see. I didn’t see the 2008 kerfluffle, but I saw the fallout from Ed’s nasty remark about Laura Ingraham. (I believe he said ‘right-wing slut,’ and the remark was actually made on his radio program.) He was suspended for a week and made an obviously sincere apology. (Unlike this one.)

        Martin Bashir, as has been pointed out, was basically forced to resign.

        I wonder if anything close to the above will happen to these two.

      • I see your point but I do think Bolling’s joke is worse than Obama’s salute. First, it’s sexist. Second, it is actually disrespectful. Third, he spent much of the first part of the show acting like Obama’s coffee cup salute WAS a major national incident because it was so disrespectful to the armed forces and then said this later in the same show. That is hypocritical but at the same time, I’m not going to write off his apology as insincere because I really don’t know what his intentions were and I like to be fair. Maybe he really didn’t realize how disrespectful his comment was until it was pointed out to him. It happens. Others often see us more clearly than we see ourselves.

        As to your conservatives point, there are hypocrites on both sides of the aisle. I think that’s something we can all agree on.

      • Ivan Renko

        I think we’re all hypocrites. Each and every one of us. At least when it comes to our politics.

      • I was all prepared to argue that but then I thought about it for a moment and yeah, you definitely have a point there.

      • Jennifer King

        I agree completely Ivan. We are all what’s wrong with this country. We have a two party system that doesn’t work for our country at all. On one side you have a party that isn’t against the people, but it’s not FOR the people either. The other party is absolutely not for the people andeven wworks against the people. If something doesn’t change with this country’s mentality, our children are in very real trouble.

        Quite frankly, I never though the Obama coffee cup salute should have even made the news. But it was Fox news that reported it as if he had created high treason.

        Just a sad state of affairs we are in and it will continue into the next presidency.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        only the dead are flawless

      • davidwachtel1

        Do you mean the show of respect Bush made holding his dog while saluting?

      • Don’t even get me started on Bush. I will never understand how saluting with a coffee in hand is worse or better than saluting with a dog in hand. It’s the same freaking thing and I don’t think it was a big deal in either case. Is it a bit disrespectful? Sure. Is it something to really be outraged about? Absolutely not. They both had their hands full and made an attempt at a salute. Controversy over. The ‘boobs on the ground’ comment though – straight up disrespectful and straight up sexist.

  • Cemetery Girl

    Hopefully the women viewers that did right in will just stop watching the next time they hear a comment like this. Ratings rule, if people won’t watch it then things will change.

    • Mimi

      That would be great if it works, but I thin their viewership is probably (I don’t have any numbers at my fingertips to support this atm, sorry) predominately white, male, hetero, cisgendered, Christian, older, and equally misogynist, so it likely won’t even make a dent.

      • Cemetery Girl

        I agree. Loss of female viewers that are offended by these kinds of comments won’t really have an impact. There would probably be a bigger viewer outcry if they did make changes. It is discouraging, but that doesn’t mean we have to just accept the status quo.

      • Mimi

        >>but that doesn’t mean we have to just accept the status quo.<<

        Oh, I agree completely. Personally I refuse to accept the status quo of the patriarchy. Just not gonna do it. The older I get the less I am willing to put up with it, even with things that are unlikely to affect me personally (e.g. abortion, birth control, etc.) because it affects fully half of the human population.

        Actually as women are slightly more than 50% of the population worldwide are female, that means that women's issues should be the "default" (if we insist on a default norm) and mens' issues should be the "other."

        Of course I don't get a whole lot of internet (or otherwise) love for my stance OR for my campaign to eradicate the "C" "W" and "B" words from our vocabulary when speaking to and about women, but I don't care. It's not my job to worry about the fragile little egos or the inherent unearned privilege of those in possession of a penis.

  • Jan

    MSNBC’s Martin Bashir made a controversial statement, was criticized, apologized, and was forced to resign. Bolling should be held to the same standard and resign!

    • Cemetery Girl

      Fox probably feels comfortable that it has enough viewers that were not offended by the statement that they don’t have to worry about some women getting bent out of shape. I wouldn’t be surprised if many viewers would actually be upset enough to write in to complain if he was fired/resigned because a bunch of feminists cost a man his livelihood. How dare women take away a man’s job just because they can’t handle the jokes he makes? Sadly, this is probably what would happen.

      • Ivan Renko

        CG,

        No offense, but I wish I had a dollar for every time you used the words ‘probably’ and ‘if’ when you guess what would happen to Fox under certain scenarios.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        wish I had a dollar for every time FOX ” news” made blatant lies and didn’t recant them

    • Ivan Renko

      Bashir said someone should defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth. And he was serious. It was a part of a prepared monologue. Bolling made an off the cuff remark to Greg Gutfeld’s parking joke about boobs.

      Terrible joke, was immediately rebuked by Greta Van Sustern on the next show two hours following The Five, and Bolling issued an apology the next day.

      What standard do you think should apply, fire anyone for anything said that could be deemed as misogynistic?

      Do you think standards against misogyny should apply to comments on this blog?

      • Cemetery Girl

        The comment about Palin was not made because she is female. It was a distasteful comment made because of things she has done. Still utterly disgusting, but not actually sexist.

        Making jokes that someone is less capable to preform a job they’ve earned because of sex, that is sexist.

        Should a person be fired for one sexist comment? No. If there is a reoccurring pattern of this kind of behavior though then it warrants it. It is not uncommon in other workplaces.

      • Ivan Renko

        CG,

        Do you think standards should apply to reoccurring sexism by commenters on this blog? This blog that you choose to read and comment on?

      • Cemetery Girl

        Honestly, I have made comments before on this site (other pieces) regarding the offensive comments that pop up on here. There should be changes in monitoring, although it would infringe on freedom of speech. There are some commenters that I basically avoid interacting with. They tend to lean towards “dumb/stupid [degrading term for woman]” and degrading men by comparing them to women. No, I do not care for those commenters at all. If I refused to go to any site that did not have the same problem I’d be better off just disconnecting my Internet. It is a problem across the web. I find it even in the comments on news articles on the site for my local paper. The relatively anonymous nature of the Internet empowers people to say things that they might not normally say in person. Most people would not say “***** probably deserved it” to a rape victim’s face. Most probably wouldn’t go up to the family members of someone that died of an overdose and say “good, one less junky in the world”. Most wouldn’t just randomly walk up to a man that has been violently assaulted and tell him “*****, a real man would have fought harder”. Yet this happens online.

      • Sandy Greer

        Yeah. We give it a pass because it’s Palin, and she has ‘done things’. Good Lord.

        This is the problem right here.

        We excuse our ‘own’ for doing the very things we point our fingers of Hypocrisy at others for. I wondered why you kept silent in Clifton’s Fox News Sexist Rants article – after having agreed with my OP in his first article.

      • Cemetery Girl

        I do agree there is a problem with some commenters. I’m pretty sure I did leave some sort of comment on that piece, what it was or what my exact thoughts were at that moment, I don’t remember. There is a problem with comments, but it isn’t limited to this site. Really, this isn’t a matter of “our own”, but Internet wide. It is difficult to find articles, blogs, even videos, that don’t have comments that are juvenile and offensive.

      • Sandy Greer

        You did leave two comments there:

        >Let’s not go dragging down Modern Family!

        >Sweetie, the people are talking here. Why don’t you take $50; get your hair done, maybe pick up a new dress so you’ll feel pretty, and pick up a pot roast to fix for dinner tonight. Ok? Run along now

        Other than that – No. I was out on that limb all by myself – save for Ivan Renko. And while I’m grateful for Ivan’s level-headed support – the lack of support from women is both disheartening and discouraging. Although, as noted in my OP – BB Mystic wrote to Allen Clifton the Hypocrite himself. This article is his response.

        He’s got so much feigned Outrage over Fox News – he’s got none left over to clean his own house.

      • Cemetery Girl

        Ok, so I was being sarcastic that day. Sorry if you felt left out to dry…

      • Sandy Greer

        It’s not about me. I’d rather stand alone, and fight for The Right Thing – than to have a mob at my back for the Wrong.

        It’s about the Hypocrisy of people who feign Outrage over what is said on Fox News – and ignore the ‘recurring pattern of this kind of behavior’ right here on FP – every single day.

        ====================================
        its ok when u do it– youre ” nice”

      • His comment was sexist enough without people twisting it. He didn’t say she was less capable of preforming her job because of her gender, or for any reason, actually. He made a tactless, sexist comment about her breasts. It’s still disgusting but it’s hardly saying she can’t do the job as well as a man. If there’s anything further to be read into it, it would be that even with everything she’s done, he still just sees her as a pair of boobs. I don’t think he even intended that though. I think he tried to be funny and failed. And to make it clear, I think his comment was disgusting and unacceptable for anyone, let alone an on air personality.

      • Jan

        Whether a “prepared monologue” or “off the cuff remark,” IMO, television personalities, conservative or liberal, should be held responsible/accountable for insensitive personal remarks (on gender, race, religion, etc.) they make that offend their viewing audience and should expect backlash.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        please notice how IVAN failed to reply 2 U– as U were 100% accurate

      • Mimi

        Bashir aside, Bolling should be fired for making such a misogynistic comment. Full stop. Don’t compare him to anyone else. Judge him on his own actions. Misogyny and “jokes” about women’s bodies have no place in the modern world. Women’s bodies aren’t public property. Sexism is like racism in that it denigrates and entire group of people for no other reason than fear, ignorance, and the amusement of the one talking and/or their audience. This needs to stop.

        This article is his response. I’d be surprised if there were any other.

        Try not to lose heart. It’s good to see you here, BB-Mystic.

    • PatrioticUSGlory

      Not the same thing.

  • What sincerely bothers me about this joke, beyond the obvious reasons, is that earlier in the show, he criticized Obama for the latte salute because it showed disrespect for the troops. What he said was far, far more disrespectful than Obama saluting with a coffee cup in his hand. His apology is appreciated though. It does sound at least a little sincere and I believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt. Maybe it was an offhand comment and he didn’t realize how ridiculous is was until others pointed it out to him. I know I’ve said things that were insensitive and while I usually pick up on it right away, there have been times that I haven’t. I’m quite certain that isn’t what happened here but I like to think of myself as a fair person so I’m going to wait and see what happens next.

    It wasn’t enough you ignore the hateful, disgusting, degrading things said by your own readership on your own blogs – incited by yourself. But you dare to say Fox News got ‘letters from viewers’ protesting what was said. After receiving your own friggin ‘letters’ of protest from women and men here. Evidence of that here:

        Don’t like being named? Don’t make the posts.

        Your obsession with Ivan Renko is – strange.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        seems as if U are much more obsessed with him as u want to build shrines arounds him almost daily,,,,,,,as for my posts it seems that ( a) again you DID not mention- to him– his behavior towards me mirroring mine towards him: so u dropped the ball ( b) the recited post u brought up was from ANOTHER THREAD; so it seems U have an obsession here as well. Sorry i “touched ” a nerve with you– considering all i do is mention my view towards anatomically IN correct females ( never directed at sandy) perhaps your demon remains plaguing u; as U have shown NO interest in quelling said demon. Laughter( and self deprecation) it seems- remains forlorn to you.

      • Sandy Greer

        Seems I don’t meet your expectations. No surprise I cannot give you the validation you need.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        I have no expectations — I am remiss in any abilities to ” think” that well after U have been shown your inconsistency that u might say “ooops”
        ==========================================
        validation? I need none. My life is pretty good; full and growing.
        >those who claim others need validation seem the neediest of all, EH?

      • Ivan Renko

        anatomically IN correct females

        Wtf, shemale? What a pig you are. Did you learn about eugenics in one of your pastry classes?

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        what part do U not understand? they exist; as do anatomically IN correct males- yet U feign ersatz outrage?
        now U are the lone(ly) ranger for sandy?
        IM LOVING THIS PARASITIC ASSOCIATION!
        ====================================
        laughter; it seems is NOT on either of your dinner plates.
        sorry U have not had the ‘luxury’ of being with gracile macromastial women–
        don’t know we who exclusively have .

      • Sandy Greer

        You’ve got a girlfriend. What do you care about anonymous people you will never meet? Imagining all sorts of things.

        You’re getting creepy.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        cannot begin to admit U erred; so now the 3rd grade words appear
        =====================================
        equanimity supercedes

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        also- replying to another crybaby rant U made today I will endeavor to edify AGAIN:
        I claimed U have another profile (OY HUMID) and U claimed I need and subsequently use a thesaurus to showcase my “lexiphanic” vocabulary
        *********************************************************
        neither of these can be proven nor disproven
        >>>are U with me so far? GOOD<<<<
        I demolished your suggestion/ charge by informing U that I have memorized several books– one being " the superior persons book of words" ( peter bowler) as part of my affection FOR learning- and using– such nimious language
        Im quite Ok with the potential fact that indeed U are NOT OY HUMID as I recognize that regressive troll pollute the pages of all blogs
        YOU however showed no such resipiscence and exacerbated YOUR error(s) by staunchly adhering to your porous– at best– position.
        The irony is that erstwhile seemingly 'balanced' sandy has not only gone quiet when I have PROPERLY shown this to be true; but has now shown true craftsmanship by constructing some inexplicable shrine honoring you. BRAVO to U both; U both know my opinions of these blogs and those the OVER-inhabit them
        Bottom line? A.G.A.I.N. you have shown your 'mettle' by falsely accusing me of saying that I wrote that U had made woman-hating comments. (!!!!REALLY!!!)
        When I mentioned your error in doing so- asking U to RE read what was written U spun away and cried about irrelevant drivel.
        I had attempted to throw U a bone by upvoting U and making comments regarding my middle-of-the-road view upon bolling and gutfeld: you are so brilliant U couldn't even mature enough to see this and discard the past where BOTH of us made mistakes— u were too busy RETALIATING when no cannon was fired at you!! Bordering stupification/stupefaction!!!
        I love archetypal lemmings such as you!
        *********************************************************
        cry back again; U have shown to be otiose to me and therefore…..
        inconsequential

      • Sandy Greer

        Sandy goes ‘quiet’ because she’s at a loss for words for what to say when you flip out like this. 😀

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        completely understandable—
        ,,,, that’s what those who get slammed by facts showing unmitigated errors do!
        now,,,,,, about my thesaurus–

      • Ivan Renko

        Dude, you’re a tax cheat. You brag about defrauding the government and its citizens, claiming that ‘you’re just better at it than they are’. I don’t want your bones you throw at me. I don’t want you to agree with me. You’re a dishonest human being misogynist pig, and a blatant hypocrite who wants other people to pay higher taxes but isn’t willing to pay what he owes. All these are true, and are your words, no matter what words you use that you throw out to convince yourself that it makes you somehow ‘superior’.

        People tend to stop responding to you because you’re a phony.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        look!! ivan — again– spinning away from topic! classic republican playbook strategy when getting eviscerated in discussion!!

      • Ivan Renko

        How cute that Thesaurus Boi, our resident pastry chef, uses multiple exclamation marks for attention.

        It’s heart-warming.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        love watching U crumble ( !!!!!!!!!!!!!)

      • Ivan Renko

        Dude, I don’t think you know what the word eviscerate means. Because word-power words in response to a comment don’t constitute an evisceration.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        (a) eviscerate: disembowel — used euphemistically by me; colloquially expressed but essentially correct – also to deprive of “vital ” content
        (b) private profile- have too many white trash regressive impotent trolls following.
        (c) you AGAIN & AGAIN rocket past my EVISCERATING YOU when u got nailed ( where do I begin!) not replying to my asking U about why U claimed I said U wrote anti women ( see: misogynistic) posts- which u now see I never said
        (d)

      • Ivan Renko

        Hey, that’s an outright lie. I never made one misogynistic comment here. Not once. Not ever. It was only you accusing me of using another identity, which is not true.

        And you’re a coward to hide behind what someone else said and using it as an excuse for your behavior.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        idiot– I didnt accuse U of that: so not only are U- again– crying 4 no reason; U responded to me when I wrote her. Seems U cry alot for no reason. She screwed up; now U are screwing up…… priceless!!

      • Ivan Renko

        You speak in vague generalities and then call people idiots when they don’t understand what the hell you’re talking about.

        What are you accusing me of, then, shemale?

        You’re the one crying, though. You make highly misogynistic and offensive comments and then tell women offended by them to STFU because you didn’t say it specifically to them. You’re a weasel. And not liberal at all.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        you know what U wrote; and have no way to back it up
        ===================================
        I didn’t tell anyone to STFU
        I told SOMEONE to dig deeper inside and stop being so thin skinned and resentful.
        If someone bitched about my long hair or my pet TEGU or the fact that I do what I do WHERE I do I would simply shrug and keep doing what I do–
        expanded self esteem allows this freedom

      • Ivan Renko

        If you “had it”, you wouldn’t need to lie to the IRS and every person here reading this blog in order to keep more of “it”.

        You just wouldn’t. It defies logic. It defies liberal principles.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        awww,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, spinning away from topic! how ” republican ” of thee!

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        lie to the IRS?
        isn’t that “illegal”?
        ==================================
        I not only KEEP more of “it”….. I accumulate it and annoy “have nots” such as thee in the acquisition process!

        write back soon,,,,,,,,,,,,,, after all; U need to remind me of what a ‘bounder’ ( see: CAD) I am by only paying 13 K per year to the TEA PARTY hated IRS in TAXES! ( ” T axed E nough A lready”

      • Ivan Renko

        October is never Dallas’ problem.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        (a) U are completely correct about the paper mache cowboys
        (b) I pay enough in taxes to keep the beloved IRS from contacting me
        ( c) I THOROUGHLY enjoyed ho U didn’t reply when I asked YOU if YOU would declare a 25000.oo found cash windfall as INCOME ( see: hypocrisy)
        (d) when HUGE billion dollar companies pay NOTHINGGGGGGGG in taxes due to legislative loopholes/ offshore accounts/ shadowy accounting tricks “et hoc genus omne” regressive crybabies such as YOu bemoan the stultification of PRIVATE enterprise via regulation and ‘socialism’! (ooops….!!)
        (e) sarcastically I beg edification here: hows your being an indentured servant ( see: “employee” ) tasting for you? did U punch in b4 U worked ? get your law-mandated lunch break? PAY ( through payroll deductions) your tax?
        ======================================
        write back immediately and lemme know how much U love my photo(s)-

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        hey CHOWDERHEAD– above u accuse me of claiming U said ‘misogynistic’ stuff online– I didn’t; I told U 2 RE read and evidently U did as U back off your crybaby rant
        ==================================
        where did I tell ANY woman to STFU? OOOOPS! U erred there also
        U accuse me of needing some ‘help’ in picking and choosing the lavish words I pound your smallish ass with- SORRY O crybaby infantile: even as I refer you to a favorite book which has helped me stockpile such luminary “werds” U still cry as U don’t like the truth
        =====================================
        now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, about my usage of the duality of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!
        I really would like to meet all the poorly constructed ( socially/mentally and physically) peons such as you– I remain reminded of the incredible braveness such gelogenic (QV) mugwumps such as u exhibit here; hiding in entirety behind the veneer of internet obscurity and anonymity proffered by these entertainment-laced blogs. Meeting you would allow me to simply die laughing ( or be taken away by authorities) seeing and smelling losers of thine ilk
        ********************************************************
        delightfully; I will remain unsoiled by eschewing such a meeting.
        get back and tell me about how “misogynistic” I am!!!

      • Ivan Renko

        now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, about my usage of the duality of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!

        Hey ‘chowderhead’, does that look like two exclamation marks you posted? Because, ummm, that’s what the word duality you used would imply.

        Do you ever look at the definitions when look these words up? Because you rarely if ever use them to make clear, valid points.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        (a) my ‘pretentious’ wording is used FLAWLESSLY ( as I know U know)
        (b) U –again– spin away from the accuracy of my reminding you of your erroneousness
        (c) valid points? clear? would that include nailing U here –and above– with your refusal to admit U are dizzying in attempting to escape the POINTS I make about what U say( and subsequently avoid)??
        those points?
        maybe we can chat about what I look like; or how U do NOT brave us with photos of your less-than- socially enjoyable self.
        =====================================
        heres another of me- allow me to remind: 6’2 1/2 210 lbs. 11 pct body fat. NO tattoos….NO drugs ( or alcohol) NO hair color ETC,,,,

        seems living properly DOES have socio-economic advantages; EH?
        Cry back soon,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and I will place up my lady KATs photos so U can revel in my ‘misogynistic’ pratfalls?
        now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, about your inability to exculpate me from the dreaded thesaurus intimation (!!)
        (LOOK– two 2 ^^^ above exclamation points)

        awww,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, now U and the shrine building sandy are sharing lingo!!!

      • Ivan Renko

        Dude, you’re a catfisher. I have no interest in seeing pictures you find on the Internet. And whoever that is, he needs a haircut and someone to help him pick out a shirt and tie from somewhere else besides the Costco close-outs bin. That looks like a Garanimals combo.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        “Pictures found on the internet” I LIKE THAT–
        perhaps I found this one also?

      • Ivan Renko

        Are you trying to look like David Cassidy?

        I mean like how David Cassidy looks now? Is that the look you’re going for?

      • Sandy Greer

        giankeys never met a troll he wouldn’t engage – ad nauseum – to derail a thread.

        Wouldn’t surprise me if he sockpuppeted those trolls himself.

        you collapse faster than the hindenburg
        ====================================
        enjoy mediocrity: it is; after all– a choice

      • Ivan Renko

        He called me a sock puppet because I put my Disqus profile on ‘private’. Guess what, his Disqus profile is now set to ‘private’.

        He was against it before he was for it.

        He says the things he says and makes the unverifiable claims he makes because he’s very insecure about himself, and he figures it’s ok to just keep lying.

      • Sandy Greer

        If he creeps me out anymore I may have to go ‘private’ too.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        go private
        ================================== might help assuage the fact that READING about a mans views upon flatchested/ fat assed women seems to have reminded U of that which painfully is!

        here is me in aug vacationing in Arizona- please notice the work done to remain in excellent physical health-
        ,,,and where O where O where are thy photos??
        ( embarrassment ensues)

      • Sandy Greer

        Nobody wants to look at you. We’ve got our own lives. May not be much to you – but they’re ours.

        And good enough we don’t need to brag in ‘look at me’ attention-seeking posts in search of Validation.

  • Nick Wride

    It’s Fox “News”. What do you expect? Sincerity?

  • openlyblack

    Actually, while I think Eric Bolling is a bigoted, bloviating meat puppet, I do not think he should be fired … instead he should continue to demonstrate that the term FOX News is – as a “service – an oxymoron aimed at morons.

    • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

      gonna agree here– besides: they would just get another overpaid parrot 2 replace him as He and the FIVE did replacing Beck

  • Eg Kbbs

    What apology did he issue ?

    I only heard him say that he is known for making crass comments. Basically like saying “I’m crass but I just can’t help myself and am NOT going to make any effort to improve myself. Like someone under a white hood singing “I’ ve gotta be me” from under their Klan hood.

    • mosquito

      I don’t get it. Is the Klan hood under the white hood? That’s what your description indicates.

  • FD Brian

    I won’t pretend to know what is in Eric’s heart, but with that being said, I think most of the things he says are to appease a viewership that is juvenile.

    • Sandy Greer

      Here on FP too. Clifton writes for the ‘juvenile’.

      Every comment quoted in the Reply to my OP here in this thread was made in response to Clifton articles on FP – which hold up for ridicule conservative women because he doesn’t like their Politics.

      Quite the list of ‘juvenile’ comments quoted there.

  • PatrioticUSGlory

    The elevator rape joke about “maybe they should take the stairs” may be the funniest thing I’ve heard in years… That alone cancels out any bad jokes.

  • Molly D. Barber

    An apology has 3 parts. 1- you recognize what you have done and the impact it has had,2- you say that you are sorry, 3- you explain the changes you are making so that it will never happen again. He did not aplogise.

  • Cooper

    No one on any other network could have gotten away with this. Why hasn’t there been more backlash? It was easily one of the most ignorant, sexist things I have ever heard someone masquerading as a serious journalist say. And the women on the panel say nothing but imagine if a Democrat said that.

  • MCL

    I sam a woman and I have often been so sick of hearing that stupid phrase “boots on the ground.” So I to myself have often thought what Eric Bolling said. Just a kind of a pun. (Sorry)
