Fox News program bashes Canadian Military



This is just sickening to listen to, especially right after 4 more soldiers just died in Afghanistan.

I've always defended against the stereotype of American Ignorance and Arrogance, because I've known a lot of good Americans, but no more. It just pisses me off listening to these ignorant douche bags.

i sad to see how people actually act like that in public. those type of people are the ones that when asked to go to war they'll say no and when they want someone else to go to fight they will tell them too. i think canada should of never gone there in the first place.

just some fairly typical, self-centered American douchebags.... Totally ignorant of anything but themselves. The only intelligent comment made during the whole clip was when the one guy said the other was "stupid"...

haha we say the same thing about Americans and call them rednecks and assholes and arrogant idiots
its pure satire and was freaking hilarious.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...-greg-gutfeld/
In an era of extreme political correctness, when almost everyone is offended by almost everything, and with self-appointed advocacy groups organized to find offense on behalf of almost everyone - offensively, without the majority in the group's consent - it's nice to know that there's a place to go where everyone can be offended almost all of the time.

Even if it's hidden on the offensive cable news network, according to offensive liberal watchdog David Brock's Media Matters, and shown at an offensive hour - Monday to Friday, 3 a.m. EST.

Two years into its late, late, late-night (or early, early morning - depending on your biological clock) cable news run, "Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld" has solidified itself as television's most reliably absurdist, unpredictable and laugh-provoking news hour.

It's less a comedy competitor to "The Daily Show" - the budget's too low, and Gutfeld isn't a marm at heart - or an insomniac's "The O'Reilly Factor" (Who cares what people who wake after noon think?) than it is a surrealistic "Fernwood 2-Night" (Fred Willard rocks!)

No topic of discussion - ethnic houseboys, torture pits, cannibalism as a "lifestyle choice," seedy tricks in parks, allusions to drug abuse, etc. - is off-limits, and no ideology is predetermined. Show regulars Bill Schulz, a liberal; Andy Levy, a libertarian; and Mr. Gutfeld, a conservative, ensure that the show's point of view isn't rigged.

That means, unlike all other cable news shows, participants aren't pitted to hate one another for disagreeing over farm bills, sex dolls and first-family fist bumps. It's also the go-to show for the rigid and the joyless - those poor wonks at watchdog blogs whose only way of income is creating a universe of make-believe offensiveness.

"Red Eye" guarantees that their shrill cries of outrage keep their fridges stocked with hummus for another day.

if they didnt want to be called rednecks and asshole, and arrogant....maybe they should be all of the above!!!

none of what they said was true, except Canada taking a break, and the other guy is stupid (like 98Dinan3 said).

It's classless satire, and not funny. We made fun of Bush, and certain things about the U.S., just like they made about us and our igloos, polar bears, jean poutine etc... Which can be funny at times. But never have I heard a main stream Canadian news broadcaster belittle or demean the deaths of American soldiers in the way this did towards the sacrifice that Canadian soldiers and families have made in Afghanistan. Especially considering we are there to support the U.S because of their losses on Sept 11th. How do you think they would react if we belittled their losses from that date?

How do you think the families of the 116 soldiers that have been killed in Afghanistan feel when they hear that tool say something like "Who even knew Canada was in Afghanistan". "Not like they do anything anyway"

I hate political correctness B.S as much as the next person, but there are certain things that are just crossing the line.

I see your point man, but I read stuff all the time in school that constantly bashes the US on everything from foreign policy to internal affairs, to Presidential choices, Bush being a chimpanzee look-a-like (like how is that fair?), to how Americans are fat, obese, and racist, etc etc and all this misguided, absolutely incorrect BS about the USA. The people in the US, especially the Southern states are more friendly than Canadians. The country is more united as a whole and 1000 times more patriotic than Canada, and it us Canadians who constantly mock our neighbors. Poking fun at our pathetic military (which has been growing and doing much better under Harper) is fine, its unfortunate it co-coincided with the deaths of 4 soldiers, but as Canadians, we judge, mock, and relentlessly attack the US for its War in Iraq to 9/11 as being an "inside job" (as if the Government tried to kill 3000 of its citizens )... so to satirize Canada as being known for its mounties on horseback, and its small army isn't really that bad. It was good comedy, but I think the timing was wrong unfortunately. As Canadians, we like to give it out, but we never like to take it. They don't really bash Canada, it's not mean spirited like how we bash the United States. Even on this forum I see tons of anti-US comments and sentiment.
