Gene Simmons BANNED From Fox News


>>FOX HAS PERMANENTLY BANNED
GENE SIMMONS, AND THAT WAS AFTER HE WAS IN NEW YORK DOING
INTERVIEWS ON VARIOUS SHOWS FOR FOX IN ORDER TO PROMOTE HIS
BOOK. HE MADE HEADLINES EARLIER THIS WEEK WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT
HOW WOMEN CAN REALLY WIELD THEIR POWER IF THEY PUT SOME LIPSTICK
ON, HIS QUOTE ALSO WAS TO LIFT, SEPARATE, AND POINT THEM IN THE
GENERAL DIRECTION OF MEN, REFERRING TO BREASTS — YOU KNOW
IF WOMEN ARE LOOKING FOR A PROMOTION OR SOME POWER IN LIFE. OF COURSE HE OFFENDED SOME PEOPLE, BUT THAT DIDN’T STOP FOX
FROM INVITING HIM ON –>>RIGHT AFTER THAT, THINGS
STARTED TO FALL APART –>>THAT IS WHERE THINGS STARTED
TO GET CRAZY. THERE WAS A VIDEO SHARED BY ONE OF THE FOX HOSTS
THAT KIND OF ILLUSTRATED THE BEGINNING OF HIM LOSING HIS MIND
AND DOING THINGS THAT ENDED UP GETTING HIM BANNED, HERE’S THE
BEGINNING, TAKE A LOOK.>>GENE, IN ADDITION TO POWER
WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO PRECIPITATION?>>GENE SIMMONS DOING WHETHER.>>GENE IS NOW THE WEATHER
MACHINE.>>WE ARE MAXIMIZING GENE
SIMMONS’S POTENTIAL.>>IF YOU ARE IN PROVO, WHY
AREN’T YOU, IT’S 32∞F AS OPPOSED TO CELSIUS. ALBUQUERQUE, WHICH
IS DIFFICULT TO SPELL BUT I KNOW THAT BECAUSE I USED TO BE A
SIXTH GRADE TEACHER, IS IT 46∞ –>>WHAT A HAM. HE DOESN’T NEED TO
HAVE HIS FACE PAINTED TO BE ENTERTAINING. I LOVE WHEN
SOMEONE IN AN INTERVIEW JUST GETS OUT OF HIS CHAIR.>>COULDN’T HAPPEN IN THE OLD
DAYS WITH WIRED MICROPHONES.>>THIS IS WHERE THINGS STARTED
TO GET CRAZY, BECAUSE –>>SO FAR IT’S OKAY.>>THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT BUT THAT
WAS KIND OF THE BEGINNING.>>NOT THAT HARD TO SPELL
ALBUQUERQUE BY THE WAY.>>THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN HE GOES
INTO A STAFF MEETING, BARGES INCOME INTERRUPTS IT, AND STARTS
ANTAGONIZING THE WOMEN IN THE ROOM. HE WAS QUOTED AS SAYING –>>HE WAS WEARING A VELVET
SHIRT, WE SAW IT RIGHT THERE.>>GOOD POINT. THIS CHECKS OUT.>>THEN –>>THIS IS LIKE A LOT OF WEIRD
STUFF IS HAPPENING IN THE STORY, GOOD JOB OF THE WRITER OF THIS
ARTICLE TO USE THE WORD “BOPPED.” THIS IS A STORY IN THE
ERA OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT CLAIMS WHERE HE USED THE TERM “BOPPED
HIM ON THE HEAD WITH A BOOK.”>>THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED.>>GENE SIMMONS IS A HUGE FRAUD. I DON’T MEAN TALENT-WISE, HE MAY BE TALENTED, KISS ISN’T MY
BAG, EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN TASTE IN MUSIC — BUT HE IS
THREATENED AND WANTS TO PROVE TO EVERYONE HOW SMART HE IS. THERE
IS AN INTERVIEW WITH TERRY GROSS ON NPR MAYBE FOUR OR FIVE YEARS
AGO, AND HIS BEHAVIOR WAS SO OFFENSIVE — I DON’T SAY
OFFENSIVE, LIKE, I DON’T MIND WHEN PEOPLE GET OFFENSIVE, YOU
DON’T HAVE A RIGHT NOT TO BE OFFENDED IN THIS COUNTRY, THERE
ARE SERIOUS ISSUES WE ARE DEALING WITH NOW BUT GETTING
OFFENDED I DON’T THINK IS ONE OF THEM — I DOES MEAN OFFENSIVE TO
THE SOUL. NOT LIKE WE SHOULD REPRIMAND HIM, JUST, LIKE, WHO
IS THIS GUY?>>WHAT DID HE SAY?>>HE KEPT USING BIG WORDS,
PROBABLY SOME OF THEM RIGHT BUT SOME OF THEM WRONG, IN A WAY
THAT WAS LIKE, LOOK AT ME. YOU SAW IT THERE, I WAS A FORMER
SIXTH-GRADE TEACHER. HE THINKS HE’S SMARTER THAN ANYBODY ELSE,
BUT HE’S DUMB, HE IS DUMB AS A POST AND IS CONSTANTLY TRYING TO
SHOW OFF HOW BRIGHT HE IS, HOW HE IS YOUR INTELLECTUAL
EQUIVALENT. WHEREAS NOBODY CARES, I DON’T GO AROUND INTO
ROOMS, NONE OF US DO, THINKING OH BOY, I HOPE PEOPLE HERE THINK
I AM THERE INTELLECTUAL EQUIVALENT. BUT HE WANTS TO
PROVE SOMETHING, HE HAS NO SENSE OF HUMOR, NONE. HIS WHOLE SENSE
OF HUMOR IS, AHH, OUTRAGEOUS, YOU DIDN’T THINK I WOULD DO THIS
BUT I DID. PUT MY HAND RIGHT THERE. I JUST KEPT THINKING,
TOTAL FRAUD. MY DAD, GOD REST HIS SOUL, USED TO HAVE A GREAT
EXPRESSION, HE WOULD ANALYZE ANY STORY THAT INVOLVED A JEWISH
PERSON OR ISRAEL, ANYTHING, HE WOULD READ THE STORY AND THEN
GO, HMM, GOOD FOR THE JEWS OR BAD FOR
THE JEWS? GENE SIMMONS
— BAD FOR THE JEWS.>>ONE PERSON QUOTED AT FOX TOLD
THE DAILY BEAST THE FOLLOWING –>>IT’S GOT TO BE BAD IF HE’S
PERMANENTLY BANNED FROM FOX. I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN
HIS HEAD, HE JUST DOESN’T SEEM LIKE A GREAT GUY TO BE AROUND.>>LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW
SOMETIME. AND TERRY GROSS, IF YOU DON’T APPRECIATE TERRY
GROSS, AND I HAVE SIGNIFICANT ADMIRATION FOR HER, IT’S A THING
I LIKE TO BE GOOD AT, IS DOING INTERVIEWS, SHE IS VERY GOOD AT
IT, SHE DID TURN, SHE DIDN’T STAY FULLY COMPOSED. AT SOME
POINT SHE WAS LIKE, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? ALSO I’M LEAVING
OUT HE WAS UNBELIEVABLY SEXIST, OUT OF CONTROL SEXIST. I HOPE IT
IS UP SOMEWHERE, IT’S WORTH LISTENING TO JUST IN TERMS OF
TERRY GROSS’S ABSOLUTE PROFESSIONALISM AND COMPETENCE
AND HIS SYMBOL TO BEHAVIOR.>>THIS STORY, THE FACT THAT HE
IS BANNED FROM FOX, IS A SIGN OF THE TIMES, BECAUSE TWO
YEARS AGO THEY JUST WOULD HAVE OFFERED HIM THE 8 PM SLOT.
