At least, Sarah Palin doesn’t pretend to be someone she’s not.
She may be one of the most ignorant people on the entire planet, but she is certainly not as harmful as so-called democrats like Bob Beckel.
Owing to the general perception that Beckel is a liberal commentator, his audience looks to him for a more balanced and unbiased opinion on political matters.
However, the Fox News host usually disappoints them by sharing the most offensive and disgusting thoughts that even a hard-core conservative would think twice before saying in front of the camera.
Recently, Beckel caused a stir by dropping the word “Chinamen,” a derogratory term for the people of China. He did so on live television.
While he stated that the Chinese are the “single biggest threat” to U.S. national security, Beckel said:
“We bring them over here, and we teach a bunch of Chinamen––er, Chinese people––how to do computers, they go back to China, and they hack into us.”
And as if the entire statement and not just the use of slang wasn’t offensive enough, the Fox host ended his rant with some rude hand gestures.
This isn’t the first time Beckel has uttered controversial remarks. Judging by his past record, he should’ve been thrown off air for posing as a “liberal Democrat” a long time ago.
Following are other instances of when Bob Beckel proved he is a closet right-wing radical:
Beckel Says San Francisco Nudists "We Gang Banged, Probably"
In November 2012, Beckel concluded, while commentating on the San Francisco public nudity ban live on Fox News, that most nudists were, as children, “probably gang-banged, I don’t know!”
He then proceeded to laugh about his comment and saying, “They were probably sexually assaulted, I don’t know!”
Fox News Host Doesn’t Think Rape Occurs On College Campuses
Last year, while discussing a Colorado bill that would have allowed women to carry concealed weapons to prevent sexual assault at colleges, Beckel expressed his annoyance by saying, “When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?”
Beckel Calls For "Illegally" Killing Julian Assange
In 2011, while discussing the possible punishment for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the “liberal” host opined that "a dead man can't leak stuff."
"This guy's [Assange] a traitor, he's treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. And I'm not for the death penalty, so...there's only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a b**ch.”
Romney’s Israel Fundraiser Held with “Bunch of Diamond Merchants”
In August 2012, Beckel offended people when he referred to Jewish Americans who had participated in a Mitt Romney fundraiser in Israel as “a bunch of diamond merchants we don’t know the names of.”
"Liberal" Bob Beckel From Fox News Says "No New Mosques In the U.S. Until Muslims Condemn Kenya Attacks"
For a liberal, Beckel is quite Islamophobic in his attitude toward Muslims.
In the wake of Sept. 21 Westgate shopping mall attack in Nairobi, Kenya, by Somali Islamist group Al-Shabaab, Beckel declared that Islam is not the religion of peace.
He went on to suggest that Muslim students coming to the U.S. shouldn’t be granted visas and no more mosques should be allowed to be built until Muslims condemn the attacks.
After much outrage, he had to apologize for his comments.
