Following the outrage by all of Canada and the Canadian government about the demeaning comments made on FoxNews, host Greg Gutfeld said:
"However, I realize that my words may have been misunderstood. It was
not my intent to disrespect the brave men, women and families of the
Canadian military, and for that I apologize." CBC.ca
No Gutfeld, we didn't misunderstand you-you misunderstood thinking that the citizens of the best ally the U.S has ever had, but what you call a "ridiculous country" are going to stand ildly by and listen to bullshit about Canada's military from brainless hacks like you. Nice that you apologize with an asterisk, now how about manning up and really apologizing? No disclaimers-no "I've been misunderstood"-just apologize!!
The second asshole, Bill Schulz had this brilliant comeback:
One of the other jokers in this outrage is comedian (his claim, not mine) Doug Benson. After I Twittered him-he sent me this:
"Sorry @thesavvyboomer, I was just joking around. And I am dumb."
It may not be a total apology but at least he recognizes that he screwed up whereas Gutfeld is wriggling like the snake he is and Schulz obviously has no moral compass.
If you think I'm pissed and over the top about this, then you have no idea how outraged Canadians are. Benson's 5 nights at a comedy club in Edmonton in early April were cancelled. Good thing for Benson because there is an army base there. Somehow I doubt he would have even been allowed into Canada. Gutfeld's show should be cancelled as well.
Here are some words of advice from Canadian satirist Rick Mercer for these 2 1/2 assholes:
And for the handful of apologists out there who say that this was a 3AM show on FOX, I say : SO WHAT???!! The internet makes news available 24x7 no matter when it was aired. This was not some little cable show, this is a major US network news channel, hopefully one that Canadian subscribers will dump because in spite of what these 2 1/2 assholes hope, this outrage isn't going away anytime soon.
