Ah the tragedy of manhood today, having to live in a “feminized” atmosphere in which being a bully isn’t unreservedly admired by 100% of everyone. Britt Hume of Fox “News” is sad and upset about the tragedy. He blames women.
During a panel discussion on the Fox News show Media Buzz, host Howard Kurtz asked if [Governor Chris] Christie’s “bully image” was hurting him after his administration was accused for closing part of the busiest bridge in the world to hurt his political opponents.
“I have to say that in this sort of feminized atmosphere in which we exist today, guys who are masculine and muscular like that in their private conduct and are kind of old-fashioned tough guys run some risks,” Hume opined.
Oh I know. It’s so sad. All Governor Christie did was create a colossal traffic jam for his own purely selfish reasons. In normal times, before all this feminization nonsense, who would have objected to that? No one! All those people stuck on the approach to the George Washington Bridge, breathing exhaust fumes and late for work – would they have frowned on a little piece of mischief like that? No in thunder! Because in those days men were men and women were at home putting the corn flakes away and nobody had anything but love for bullying and spite.
“Feminized!” Fox News contributor Lauren Ashburn gasped.
“Atmosphere,” Hume nodded. “By which I mean that men today have learned the lesson the hard way that if you act like kind of an old-fashioned guy’s guy, you’re in constant danger of slipping out and saying something that’s going to get you in trouble and make you look like a sexist or make you look like you seem thuggish or whatever. That’s the atmosphere in which we operate.”
“This guy is very much an old-fashioned masculine, muscular guy,” he added. “And there are political risks associated with that. Maybe it shouldn’t be, but that’s how it is.”
Of course it shouldn’t be. Good god. If a guy is big and muscular well then he should be punching his subordinates every chance he gets. Anything else is a surrender to the forces of feminization! This terrible smothering atmosphere in which adults are expected to refrain from abusing their muscles or even their political office which they earned fair and square by being big and muscular – well it’s a scandal, that’s all. God damn sissy women killing all the buzzes.
