Imbecile “journalist” who goes hysterical after firing AR-15 seeks more fame by spewing nonsense

So this idiot Kuntzman (and there’s some truth in advertising, right there) who works for the New York Daily News and became mockingly infamous after wilting like a pansy in the Mojave from firing a few rounds out of an AR-15 at a controlled range has apparently decided he liked the experience so much that he’s using his perch at the paper to go hysterical over a song regularly played and sung at baseball games. Oh, and to flip Americans who believe in God the journalistic finger.

A New York Daily News sports columnist called “God Bless America” a song that “offends everyone” and called the post 9/11 tradition of playing it at baseball games a fascist exercise honoring a god who doesn’t exist.

In a column titled “Major League Baseball must permanently retire ‘God Bless America,’ a song that offends everyone,” columnist Gersh Kuntzman denounced the practice of playing it during the seventh-inning at major-league and other parks along with “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and called the song itself silly.

He compared the patriotic ritual to a fascist rally, saying “Part of my outrage stems from ponderous Mussolini-esque introduction of the song, when fans are asked to rise, remove their caps and place them over their hearts.”

And yes, he explicitly said that bit about “honoring a god who doesn’t exist. This is a so-called “journalist?” After getting mocked – again – over his reaction to being correctly castigated for that first story wherein he panicked over squeezing off a few rounds from an AR-15 at a range in Philly, he thinks it’s a great time to essentially call the overwhelming majority of Americans who believe in God delusional. Not that I considered them a terrific source to begin with but this seals it: If this is what the NY Daily News thinks is a thoughtful journalist then that publication is not fit to be quoted. Ever. On anything. I do hope that any company that sees fit to advertise on their site or pages understands the stench they are attaching to themselves.
