Geraldo: Ever notice how many gun nuts are ‘Obama birthers and 9/11 truthers’?

Hey, Geraldo, ever notice how many anti-gun zealots are giant douchebags who threatened to spit on a woman, referred to Ambassador Stevens as “dead dude”, and scrambled to find a generator to save his koi pond when people had no power to heat their homes after Sandy?

Sure, we realize we’re using a sample size of one: Geraldo Rivera. But if Geraldo can use the fringe rantings of professional conspiracy-monger Alex Jones to tar defenders of the Second Amendment, we’re pretty sure it’s a-OK to lump all gun-grabbers in with Geraldo. That’s how it works, right?

Exit question: When did Geraldo decide he was no longer 9/11 truth-curious?

Update:

Twitchy readers respond to Geraldo’s “ever notice” douchebaggery.

And zing!

    Why is it ok for geraldo to carry a gun for protection, but not his fellow citizens? http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-december-4-2001/geraldo-s-got-a-gun

  • SFerggie

    Geraldo is a joke. What cause it dumb@$$ ? Maybe the chair upside the head.

  • Edwina

    Geraldo’s talking points are only attention getters. He thrives on controversy and the more radical the idea, the more he likes it. He is an absolute embarrassment to FOX News.

      He was one of the many factors that helped me break my addiction to cable and 24 hour news. It is one thing for Fox to host liberals. Beck’s network does the same thing. However the difference lies in the presentation. The latter hosts intelligent discourse while the former lets the libs say whatever they please with only tepid recriminations.

        How’s that any different than the Right Wing loud mouths?? please stop it

    I believe he should be saying, “Ever notice how many 2nd Amendment absolutists are often REPORTED AS Obama birthers and 9/11 truthers?”

  • Jack Deth

    Geraldo Rivera: The heir apparent to Andy Rooney’s drooling, ridiculous stupidity.

    Ever notice that there are some who would sell their soul and their mother (Though not necessarily in that order) for fifteen minutes of air time in a self defeating war on relevancy?

    I liked Geraldo better when he was getting beaten up every week on the “mean streets” of New York. At least he was consistent and entertaining!

    Now, he’s just insignificant and pitiful.

    • NRPax

      OK, now I want a reality show where people like him get beaten up. I will help chip in for that program’s creation.

  • Edwina

    New idea to get rid of Geraldo, send him to CNN to co-host with Piers Morgan.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Nah. They’d fall in love, have sex, reproduce, and we’d be stuck with a mutant “Piersraldo Morgvera”.

      • LightSabre

        Inspired!!!

    He must mean people like Van Jones.

  • Guest

    Geraldo ever notice how stupid reporters give up the locations of the American military when we are at war?

    • AreOweBeeEyeN

      Yes..not the only stupid thing he’s done or said but one of the most stupid.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    Geraldo ever notice how Liberals want laws to permit drivers licenses for illegals now but claim voter id laws are racist and mean?

    And OBVIOUSLY, no illegal with a drivers license is going to attempt to register to vote..

    • JonDix

      In Washington state they are encouraged to register to vote

  • Scott

    Ever notice how many gun nuts are true patriots to this country and fought for the same constitution that gives a POS like geraldo the right to say the stupid stuff he does?
    Go bother al the oil man gore for being as hypocritical as you. Dont forget your fishes!

    • JonDix

      Thumbs up.

  • http://twitter.com/Chrismandoad Christopher Hodgson

    I love the fact that nobody replied to Geraldo, cuz he’s a useless waste even of time wasted on the internet.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Ever notice how many washed-up, pathetic, wanna-be, “investigative” journalists are narcissistic, self-absorbed, egotistical a$$holes?

    Ever notice how hasbeen reporters forget their “Al Capone” lunacy?

    Ever notice how many stupid, ignorant stuff comes out of your mouth evertime you open it or form a thought, Geraldo?

  • Sue

    Could Geraldo BE more irrelevant? Wonder if he’s ever noticed that??

    I remember when Geraldo got caught imbedded with the troops in Iraq with a handgun on his person, which is not something ‘journalists’ are allowed as it does bad things to their ‘non-combatant’ status. That was about the same time as he was un-imbedded for disclosing Coalition troop locations to his live camera feeds.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      I remember old Gerry drawing US secret war plans in the sand for the camera. They should have just shot him in the head as a traitor on the spot. They’d have done themselves, and the rest of the world, a favor.

  • Garth Haycock

    Geraldo, ever notice that those 2nd Amendment nuts are also 1st Amendment nuts? Or have you ever noticed that it’s the 2nd Amendment that protects the other Amendments?

  • Joseph Phillips

    Geraldo is such an ass. A pompous, loudmouth, self-absorbed ass. He should run for president.

    • Foxxman

      Oh, please God, NO! He’d probably get elected because he’s “famous.”

      • Joseph Phillips

        HA – true.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Isn’t there a hurricane somewhere where Geraldo can go and get blown around by it?

  • notenoughtime

    Geraldo is irrelevant ever since the Al Capone vault debacle.

  • walterc

    Hey Geraldo, ever notice that none of our “investigative journalists” bothered to make even a cursory vetting of Barack Obama, but spent millions of dollars and thousands of hours digging into every minute detail of Sarah Palin ‘s life (including her uterus)?

  • Red_Ruffansore

    I don’t remember any of that Hairaldo, what I do remember is you opening Al Capones vault and finding a wine bottle and being a laughing stock. I remember you spouting off that you were going to capture Saddam Hussein yourself AND all of the US soldiers who gave you the dirty handshake for being an uber-asshat. That’s what I remember about you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/wally.h.namer Wally Hyatt Namer

    Who is this guy anyway! Is he the guy that a few decades ago might have actually done some “investigated journalism”? It is amazing how when a a$$hat like this guy feels no one is noticing him he blurts out something really really stupid just to get attention. What a turd! Reporter – NO, Investigator – NO, imbecile – YES!!!!

  • Fido

    Rivera has been a slimy, self-promoting opportunist for as long as most can recall.

    Now, he feels emboldened enough to reveal his inner douchery, without shame.

    Fox made a grave error in bringing that toad back from obscurity.

  • RightThinking1

    Ever notice how many TV commentators change their names for more ethnic appeal? Or, better, how many have a portion of their buttocks implanted in their forehead to make them look brainy? Well, no…, except for ‘Geraldo’

    I could not make that up : http://articles.baltimoresun.com/1992-02-23/news/1992054010_1_george-strait-george-hamilton-joan-rivers

    Ever notice how many liberals are ignorant of history?

  • Justin Case

    Conservative mouthpieces have done as much to empower those who easily dismiss anyone by simply crying conspiracy theory. Add it to the list of indefensible accusations used to silence thought; racist, misogynist, homophobe, etc.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Raven.Saint Sebastian Kelly

    Geraldo just makes my a**hole twitch. This is also the whiny, sniveling, beta-male, coward of a man who hadn’t the backbone to support a candidate. “I’m officially endorsing Romney for President but I’m voting for Obama” he said on his radio show. Then had the audacity to pontificate about what Repubs did wrong after the ballots were tallied. *exhale* Well, that was cathartic.

  • maltwit

    “Ever notice how many 2nd Amendment absolutists are often Obama birthers and 9/11 truthers?”

    Ummm, no, I haven’t.

    As a “respected investigative journalist” you should have names.

    Give me some numbers, at least … unless that is privileged information under the shield law, of course.

  • JonDix

    Geraldo. Just go away… You are irrelevant. No one wants to hear you. I hear Current TV is looking for a traitorous mouth piece.

    Metal chairs, anyone?

  • fdnyretiree

    Anyone ever notice how “Geraldo” used a FAKE NAME and a FAKE RACE to get where he got?

    “Geraldo” is really a guy named Jerry Rivers, a Jew from the Bronx — NOT A PUERTO-RICAN HISPANIC! Well, he’s HALF Jewish and white anyhow, but cleverly used his fake RACE to advance himself while denigrating anyone and everyone else with whom he disagrees.

    JERRY RIVERS, YOU ARE A FRAUD!

  • BeeKaaay

    Every notice that 9/11 truthers tend to be leftwingwackos like Geraldo?

  • ProgTrog

    Ever notice how many gun control advocates believe laws that don’t stop someone from murdering other people will magically make them think twice about possessing a piece of metal?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IQIGXRVWW5XRETNV25R4FATCOM ssenecal5000

    Geraldo is a 9/11 truther !! LOL

    The funny thing is those crazy groups like truthers can always be linked back to Democrat funding for their inspiration.

    ie Alex Jones Show owned by GCN an affiliate of ABC owned by Disney. Which covers most of the birthers/truthers in the country.

    There are a few groups that even penetrated the GOP, and started an ideological saturation I actually only learned of Michelle Malkin because sometimes these paranoid freaks come after her. One such group is the Men’s Rights Movement, another is the libertarian party lead in thinking by people like Stefan Molyneux.

    At any rate the 3rd party threat rule applies, it’s never in the interest of an unaffiliated third party to notify you of a threat. Therefore it stands to reason that in the event something lake that occurs, the unaffiliated 3rd party is trying to gain something from the reactions of individuals rather than solve the threat.

    Ever notice the two reasons why Geraldo became a household name? 1. He couldn’t figure out the so-called “mystery” behind Al Capone’s vault; and 2. His nose was broken on his TV talk show by white supremacists.

  • michael s

    That statement attacks the right wing(Obama birthers) and the left wing(9/11truthers). He’s consistent.

    Geraldo, ever notice how many gun control zealots are abortion slaughterers of America’s innocent babies?

  • Saltporkdoc

    Open Memo to Geraldo-
    It’s Constitutionalist not “birther” or “gun nut” any more than it’s “free speaker” or …

  • lainer51

    maybe his nose is still shoved into his brain….

  • lainer51

    How’s that any different than the Left Wing loud mouths?? please stop

    Actually, I’ve noted how many “gun nuts” are democrats and minorities, and it’s more than a few.
