Twitpic of the day: Bob Costas and O.J. Simpson


Yesterday, Twitter users slammed anti-gun zealot/sportscaster Bob Costas with a reality-based reminder about the bow-and-arrow domestic violence killings in Casper, Wyoming. Today, Second Amendment supporters tried to inject more sense into the public square with a reminder about one of Costas’ own blood-spattered colleagues and the infamous crime that left Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman dead.

But hey, let’s not let reason get in the way of what Bob Costas believes.


#FireCostas: Backlash over Bob Costas anti-gun rant, double standards erupts

  • Kara Amber

    What a jerk off


    Anyone opposed to guns favors slavery and genocide….

    Both are impossible if people are armed.

    • EOD

      Whoever coined the phrase at the Pen is Mightier than the Sword obviously never owned a Sword.

  • Allan Howell

    Obviously Bob Costas should never be allowed to own a firearm, he’s to ignorant to safely own one.

    • jerseydevil

      Yeah, but his bodyguards are all armed…the hypocrite!

    • EOD

      Costas has shown that he is quite proficient in shooting himself in the foot.

  • David Atherton

    I think I’ve discovered why liberals are in favor of gun control. I’ve narrowed it down to two reasons.

    1. They are unable to control their emotions and are afraid they would hurt someone. They project their own shortcomings onto competent, normal people and don’t think we can be trusted with the responsibility.

    2. They really are convinced that the government is capable and inclined to protect them at every minute of the day. They believe that guns in the hands of civilians are a threat to the government’s power. On that, we agree. Where we cease to agree is in their belief in the purity of the government’s intentions. A government whose leaders are bent on “fundamental transformation” can be kept in check if the people are armed.

  • Ellen Monts Hall

    just another example of “mediacrity” from all the reporters/commentators on t.v.

  • Larry A Underwood

    Until the majority revolts this insane agenda will continue

  • Bill K

    Bob doesn’t say much about the alcohol and pill or the head injury pain because THAT MIGHT HURT HIS PERSONAL CASH COW: THE NFL,!!

  • txj0311

    ATTENTION WOULD-BE CRIMINALS: Do not even think of taking on Bob Costas.. he’s armed with his cub scout whittling chip and swiss army knife.. and he is NOT afraid to use it!!

    • lainer51

      OMG – rolling on the floor !!!

  • peteee363

    costas is yet another reason i stopped watching most tv these days. any comcast subscribers out there? you are paying his salary directly, since nbc is owned by comcast, you are also paying for al sharpton’s salary. doesn’t that make you feel great about that large cable tv bill?

    • Dawgfan70

      Good thing I have Direct T.V.

      • peteee363

        you still are paying his salary, but indireclty. the must carry stations, bet, one, own, msnbc, cnn, and all. also if you are a hbo subscriber, you are paying for bill maher. time to cut the cord, and throw away the dish. stream off the internet, cut your bill, and starve the lazy cable stations, and the dish guys. the technology is here today, where you could select only the stations you want, and only be forced to pay for them. now you pay for stations you would never watch, without you even wanting to.

        • Michael Snead

          Is there any alternative? :(

          • peteee363

            yes, streaming over the internet. i now only pay 16 bucks, and watch whatever i want, no commercials. look into roku, or uebo. the uebo allows you to record your dvd’s to a hard drive, and watch them, or stram over the internet. my current internet is from the phone company, using fiberoptic. i can stream multiple tv’s at once. then buy a netflix streaming for 8 bucks, and i also pay amazon, with the annual sub, it works out to 8 bucks too. plus free shipping on regular deliveries on all amazon purchases.

    • Mswogger

      Glad I have fios

  • Linda Wilson

    Point made….guns don’t kill people without a hand behind it. It’s people screwed up thinking that is the root of the problem. Maybe a few less concussions would have kept her alive??? I’m just saying………..

  • fuskiegirl21

    Who let OJ out of prison?

    • jimmyapendix


      • gailannr

        shut up already!

  • Tracie Sherman

    Ya know, “they” are going to all they can to control/take away our right to bear arms. It’s becoming increasingly evident that it will happen. Our founding fathers knew what they were doing when they wrote that amendment, not Bob Costas. Look at Chicago and DC who don’t allow guns, they have some of the worst crime rates out there. Not working for them at all. Doh!
    Stand strong, people!

    • AndiGibson

      Thunderdome in California?

      Things are getting so bad that at a recent city council meeting, the city attorney advised residents to “lock their doors and load their guns” because the city could no longer afford to keep up a strong enough police force. CBS News reports:

      [City Attorney Jim] Penman said the city is dealing with bankruptcy, which has forced officials to cut its police force by about 80 officers. Consequently, there’s been growing criticism about the police department’s response time.

      “Let’s be honest, we don’t have enough police officers. We have too many criminals living in this city. We have had 45 murders this year … that’s far too high for a city of this size,” Penman said.

      The city attorney said it’s important for people to be smart about protecting themselves and their family.

      Too bad some of those people gave up their means of self-defense in gun “Buy-back”.

  • Chaps1956

        • Michael Snead

          Rope? Lead pipe? Candle stick? :)

          • RightThinking1

            I’m thinking that a largish number of women have murdered their husbands with frying pans…

  • radjahshelduck

    Say–wasn’t Simpson’s Heisman Trophy a little taller than Costas?

  • Tony0920

    I’ve held a concealed carry permit here in Pa. for 33 years. Been divorced twice. They’re both still around. Actually not EVER looking forward to the day i’d have to shoot someone. Glad to be within my constitutional right to bear just the same. #PeaceOfMind

    • Dawn Street

      But do you play football?? OJ played pro ball and so did the new murderer ( I don’t watch football – too violent!!) ! :) There is your connector. Football players kill people. Ban football!!

      • peteee363

        and now that hostess is bankrupt, no more twinkee defense :-(

  • Dawn Street

    I don’t think OJ used a gun and his method was pretty effective as far as getting away with murder!! Another pro football player gone rogue. Football players kill people. Lets ban football!!

  • Doyan Stokes

    I wonder if he really believes what he said or if he was just following marching orders like a good non-thinking NBC employee.

  • Megalith

    Hey Bob, guns don’t kill people, killers kill people. You’re leaning over a little bit to far to the left there bud. Straighten up.

  • HardAssets

    Spoons made me fat!

    • peteee363

      prescription drugs nearly killed me. i was in a coma a month ago, because the medication i was taking wiped most of the salt from my body, and my brain was swelling. can we ban them too?

    • Chaps1956

      the microphone makes them say stupid things! yeah ban microphones!

  • John Q. Jones

    Poor, Bob. He’s a liberal in his dotage. His career has waned and he vies for relevance in an industry infected with liberalism…he’s just trying to hang on the wall a little longer before he passes on…LOL

  • steve sanders

    Been several deaths at sport stadiums this year, maybe we need to keep people away from sports stadiums so these stadiums can’t kill them.

  • lainer51

    Hey Bob – by the looks of your “rug”, they should ban your local toupee shop for cruel and unusual punishment.

  • AndiGibson

    I believe one this comment tops them all:

    sybilll • If only OJ had not had that gun………………oh wait

  • Tim Enlow

    Here’s another senseless death of a Kansas football player. This one college. Hey Costas….are we going to outlaw people having fists and feet now too? Because they beat and kicked this football player to death. Or is it that football should be outlawed because it’s making players kill others? Which is it Costas? You can’t say it’s our “gun culture” that’s responsible and then conveniently ignore the deaths caused by other football players using other means than firearms. Face it, you’re just a liberal mouthpiece for your liberal NBC bosses. That’s why you had to quote the sportswriter. You couldn’t even explain your position on gun control using your own words. Pathetic!

  • allthekingshorses

    40,000 people die every year in car accidents in the USA. Turn in your cars Bob!

  • Michael John Naretto

    I didn’t hear his comment as I was not watching the game but it seems to me that Costas is just another clueless Liberal.

  • Elizabeth Honce

    I agree. Football players kill people. Ban football!

  • Todd McDaniel

    He’s about as clear headed a thinker as his former colleague Kieth Olbermann.

  • BlackJack Charles

    This site is further proof that conservatives just aren’t funny.

    • clgp

      “funny” isn’t real high on the list of what conservatives value.

    • orringtonmom (D)

      the topic is violence. who’s laughing? try to pay attention.

    • Penmar

      Actually we are, we get a good laugh every time one of you libs show up trying to spout off your nonsense.

  • MaMa1

    Lefties don’t consider it “death” death if the murderer doesn’t use a gun.

  • wyatt81

    Costas is a zealot who doesn’t give a damn about the truth it’s all about his leftist agenda and scoring points with his leftist comrades. One track so called minds hermetically sealed against reality.

  • Political Dookie

    Bob is a tool. A small tool, but a tool onetheless.

  • GaryTheBrave

    Dec 03, 2012peteee363

    Sorry to hear that petee. I hope and pray there are no long-term problems caused by your ‘scripts.

  • BeJebus

    the day you depend on oj simpson to support your philosophical argument is the day you should put that gun of yours to good use and blow your head off

  • Paul R Barnette Jr

    Awww, Bob, you’re a well meaning moron

  • Kathy

    Yea, now FOX’s Alan Combs is suggesting gun owners should be drug tested

    • Penmar

      That figures, libtards don’t think welfare recipients should be tested but gun owners should.

  • David Blay

    There are plenty of countries out there that the people don’t have the freedom to have guns or any other freedom’s as far as that goe’s. Bob pick one and go and don’t come back.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    so… without a gun, a 250something pound football player wouldn’t have been able to kill anyone? too weak? not fast enough? small hands? perhaps. but he probably still could have done some damage. but that’s domestic violence and we’re not talking about that, are we, bob?

  • $24698634

    Agree or not, OJ was acquitted. And Costas was talking about gun violence, not gun control. But you don’t want to hear what he said, only what you want to think he said.

    • Jay McHue

      OJ wasn’t acquitted. In fact, he never stood trial. He participated in a kangaroo court where all the relevant evidence was ignored and the verdict decided before he ever entered the courtroom because he was a famous black man.

  • Jorge Hernandez

    We should outlaw cars and swimming pools!! More people die in those than from guns every year, Bob.

  • MrInterpid

    They asked me why I carry a hand gun. I replied, “because a cop is too heavy and won’t fit in my pocket.”

  • Andrew Penhollow

    I imagine Bob’s bodyguards are armed, making him a sanctimonious hypocrite.
