Schultz Allows Pro-Socialist, Sexist, Possibly Homophobic Comments on Facebook Page

Ed Schultz, a liberal commentator who has a television and radio show, has made it a common theme on his show to bash conservatives on a daily basis, calling them sexist, homophobic, and so on.  Most recently he got in hot water for calling New Jersey governor Chris Christie a "cold-hearted, fat slob."  In the meantime, he prides himself on his 'egalitarian' mindset.  He is a "progressive," he says, nothing more.  But be warned, if you should ever look in to what he allows on his Facebook pages, you will find a stream of homophobia, sexism, and pro-Socialist garbage.

For example, take this sexist and possibly homophobic post, written by a man on Ed Schultz's own page (name and profile picture removed):
Not only does Schultz allow his fans to call members of the Tea Party the pejorative term "teabaggers," but he also allows them to post sexist images of Christine O'Donnell, the Republican candidate for Senate in Delaware.  The picture in the post, when clicked on, is this:
It shows O'Donnell as a witch and anti-Christian.  Look closely at the front wheel of the bike; the bag on it displays "666" brazenly.  Schultz apparently gives the thumbs-up to defamatory pictures like this.

But, of course, this post is not the only possibly homophobic example allowed on Schultz's Facebook page.  Here's another on his show's Fan Page:
And another:
And yet another:
But hey, I guess that Ed Schultz is okay with gays being insulted, so long as Tea Party members are put down in the process.

To no one's surprise, Schultz also allows plenty of pro-socialist comments on his Facebook page as well.  Here's one example:
And another:
Congratulations, Mr. Schultz, you are exactly what you claim conservatives are.  Hypocrisy, thy name is Schultz.

  1. I'm glad someone is finally calling the word "teabagger" homophobic. The act itself (which I won't go into for obvious reasons) is done by gay men. If that is what they want to do, that is okay. However, to hijack it and make it into an insult (which progressives have been doing) makes it homophobic. Like the word "gay," it wasn't originally homophobic, but now that it has been hijacked (by people who call things "gay" when they don't like it), in some cases it is indeed homophobic.

  2. Anonymous, while you are welcome to post your opinion, please do not link to sites with "nsfw" images. I will repost your comment below with the link taken out:

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but teabagging is a common practice in the heterosexual world and is in no way exclusive to the homosexual community. You don't think women do it? Then you're sorely misinformed. Educate yourself.

  3. Sorry. My mistake. But please do look at the Wikipedia link yourself. And I hope you'll correct your accusation against Mr. Schultz, since your assumption that the term teabagger is homophobic is clearly wrong.

    I'm not particularly a fan of Mr. Schultz. I find him a bit bombastic. But if you want to make a point, it helps to make that point with factual statements. I have no doubt that you may have believed that teabagging is a homosexual act, but now that you know you're wrong, it only makes sense to correct the record.

  4. Point taken. I'm glad to see that you are a reasonable liberal...I added the qualifier "possibly" because many do indeed see it as a homophobic act. Even though our site is conservative, feel free to come back.

  5. I think you'd probably find that most liberals ARE reasonable, just as I'm pretty sure that most conservatives are. It's the fringe wackos on both sides that you have to worry about. Those who refuse to tolerate anyone who doesn't share their narrow point of view.

    I think liberals and conservatives have a lot more in common than the media gives us credit for and the negativity I see in the media is disheartening to me.

    Imagine what we could accomplish if we all ignored the pundits, dropped the Us vs. Them mentality and worked together to find compromises that we can all live with.

    Everything is about give and take. And the more we give, the less we have to take.
