"Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them." — Thomas Jefferson
Over the years the left has been able to get away with a vast volume of crass, derogatory, demagogic, obscene speech. If you doubt me tune in to cable stations such as MSNBC or left-wing radio talk shows. These hosts, guests and callers go unfettered in their use of inflammatory and obscene language. HBO personalities like Bill Maher have made blistering and obscene attacks on Sarah Palin and her family. Late show hosts David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon have called Sarah Palin’s young daughter a whore and Fallon introduced Michelle Bachmann with a song called “lying ass bitch”, all to the thunderous applause from their zombie audience. They get away with this because their audience is composed of people who hate conservatives and because they do not have the ability to express themselves in civil language. To me they are vulgar people with low tolerance for those who do not buy into their ideology.
The latest victim of these morons is Tim Tebow, the quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Tebow, who has risen to national stature due to the fourth quarter wins he has engineered with his Bronco team. Numerous quarterbacks in the history of the NFL have directed come-from-behind fourth quarter wins for their teams. What makes Tebow different is that he openly expresses his Christian faith — something that is frowned on by the left.
Last week the failed California politician and CNN host Bill Press fired an obscene shot at Tebow on his radio show with his “S-T-F-U” about Jesus. The leftist commentator used this acronym (which stands for “shut the f**k up”) while speaking on his radio show about his dislike for Tebow’s “in-your face” Christian faith.
“…And you know what I want to say, S.T.F.U. I’m tired of hearing Tim Tebow and all this Jesus Talk,” Press said. ”He better be praying hard this week, because he’s up against a real quarterback on Sunday — against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.”
As if this weren’t rough enough, Press continued, saying, “Everybody wants to make him a hero. I think he’s a disgrace. I think he’s an embarrassment.” Listen to his controversial assessment of Tebow below:
Press was the chair of the California Democratic Party from 1993 to 1996. He has previously served in different appointed positions such as a chief of staff to Republican California State Senator Peter Behr from 1971 to 1973, and as director of the California Office of Planning and Research under Democratic Governor Jerry Brown from 1975 to 1979. He started his broadcasting career in Los Angeles for TV stations KABC-TV and KCOP-TV. He has worked as a political commentator for CNN and MSNBC. He is best known for co-hosting CNN's Spin Room opposite Tucker Carlson, and Crossfire and MSNBC's Buchanan and Press.
Press is the author of a book called TOXIC TALK: How The Radical Right Has Poisoned America’s Airwaves.
Yet in July, he suggested House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) should be struck dead by lightning. The year before, he likened a Glenn Beck rally at the Lincoln Memorial to an Al Qaeda rally at Ground Zero.
Media Matters for America hosted a book-signing party for Bill Press, at which he thanked them for providing the source material for the whole MSNBC/lib talker lineup. No wonder MSNBC’s rhetoric, and their ratings, are so toxic.
Of course, Press wasn’t done there. He later turned to his web site, where he posted even more commentary about his opposition to Tebow. “Jesus said a lot of strong things. But one of the strongest things he ever said was: When you pray, don’t be like those hypocrites who like to stand on a street corner and pray, so everybody can see them,” he wrote. “Somebody ought to tell that to Tim Tebow.” He continued:
”By dragging God into every football game, Tebow makes a mockery of Christianity – and trivializes religion. The truth is, God doesn’t care who wins an election, a bingo game, or a football game. Sorry, Tebow, Jesus is not a Broncos fan.
Now, if you’re one of the silly millions of Americans who loves Tebow’s in-your-face kind of Christianity, consider this. What if he were a devout Muslim, who bowed to Mecca after every touchdown and shouted “Allahu Akbar?”
To some, Press’ disparaging comments about Tebow would amount to “poison.” Others, of course, would disagree. Either way, these are certainly coarse words waged against a young football player who has done little more than speak openly about his Christian beliefs. Perhaps Mr. Press should follow his own advice.
