The outrage concerning New York Times columnist Paul Krugman's disgusting comments on the tenth anniversary of 9/11 came from all quarters of the political arena Monday.
Never one to mince words, Fox News's Greg Gutfeld on "The Five" said what many Americans were feeling about this liberal sociopath, "Go to hell, Paul Krugman, you bearded, bitter buffoon" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
GREG GUTFELD, HOST: Welcome back to THE FIVE.
So, on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, "New York Times" columnist Paul Krugman delivered the odious piece of dribble ever on the attack -- well, at least since the last time he wrote about it. The headline is, quote, "The Years of Shame," end quote. And no, it's not directed at radical Islam. Instead, he targets America and the, quote, "fake heroes."
Krugman claims that the atrocity has been hijacked. The sick word given that he's not actually talking about the real hijackers who killed some 3,000 Americans. No, he's referring to people like George Bush and Rudy Giuliani who he thinks capitalized on the horrible crimes. But the worst part, at the end of this column, the creep writes, "I'm not going to allow comments on the post for obvious reasons."
That obvious reason, he's a coward. I mean, why else would you ban responses? He's like a 10-year-old boy crank-calling all of us only to hang up even before he hears a response, hearing his shame for his own wickedness.
Now, I watch the memorial services and I feel sorrow for the families whose grief never really ends. But since I'm lousy at emotional reflection I usually avoid it. But at least I can summarize what many feel today in nine words: go to hell, Paul Krugman, you bearded, bitter buffoon.
Hey, Dana, there is something wrong with him. Can we pretty much agree?
DANA PERINO: Yes, week after week, it gets a little bit more crazy. I mean, when he did that thing about like for the stimulus bill, we should to have the alien invasion, if you all remember that.
Perino was referring to a story first reported by NewsBusters last month wherein Krugman, appearing on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS," actually called for aliens to invade America so that we'd respond with a massive military buildup that would stimulate the economy.
I kid you not. But I digress:
PERINO: I really think that the former Enron advisor who is Paul Krugman was actually making a cry of help -- cry for help and he was stuffed in a locker for too long when he was in high school. And what he wrote -- I mean, I'm not trying to make light of what he wrote. It was despicable. I actually don't know anybody who defended it.
Actually, there were plenty of liberal wackos that defended it including numerous contributors and members of Daily Kos. But I once again digress:
PERINO: It's also poorly written with the really dumb spelling error. So you have to wonder about the "New York Times." Is anybody reading this?
KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE: How did it get past the editors?
GUTFELD: It's on his blog so maybe they don't bother to read it. It seems to me like something I would write right before I went to bed on Ambien, convoluted weird mess.
ERIC BOLLING: So, they are cool with whatever he says on his blog? I mean, can you imagine? I can't imagine they are.
By the way, Krugman, you're right, he is crying out for attention. We're giving it to him. I think we should --
BOB BECKEL: The thing I thought about it was -- first of all, I wish I could cut up all comments directed at me. But I can't do that, and not only that, you should read the e-mail. Step up and get out of the way.
The only thing I will say this -- this was terrible written piece. It was a horrible message. But the one point he did make, and I'll repeat this and not direct it at my friend Dana but the fact is that this did lead to us getting into a war in Iraq that was a mistake. It made Iran a regional power that should not have been. We never should have been in war in Iraq. We went in for the wrong reasons, but that is the only negative consequence of 9/11 as far as I see.
BOLLING: Are you making a commentary on 9/11 or Krugman's piece?
BECKEL: No, no, I said, what he said in his piece, that we went to war in Iraq as a result --
BOLLING: You're agreeing with him.
BECKEL: I say the war in Iraq is wrong. It remains wrong and it costs this country enormously.
GUTFELD: OK. I want to move on --
PERINO: So that makes somebody a fake hero?
BECKEL: No, wait, I don't make that connection at all. I did not make that connection. I'm just saying --
PERINO: You're saying the war was wrong.
BECKEL: Saying the war was wrong.
GUILFOYLE: Do you disagree with what he said?
BECKEL: Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely. You guys -- buffoon is a good word.
GUILFOYLE: He doesn't let people make comments on it. Rumsfeld has tweeted that he's canceling his subscription. One of the last three people --
GUTFELD: I know Rumsfeld --
Actually, that is true about Rumsfeld:
BECKEL: I'm going to practice a new thing, because I was told to do this now. It was a dumb, shikes thing to do.
PERINO: If you don't want to take comments, you don't have to, like you don't have to turn it off. He proactively provoked more commentary by saying, "And I'm not going to take any comments." It's just so stupid because if they just want to have taken the comments, he doesn't have to respond `em.
GUTFELD: Yes. And also, he gets paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to take the heat for his own commentary. The fact that he crawls under a bed after he writes something is kind of bad.
PERINO: No, I think he crawled under his bed with his little Internet so that he could see all the things written about him.
Perino's likely correct, for Krugman doubled down on his stupidity with a follow-up post Monday which I choose not to cite as the thought of it sickens me.
