Patriotic Fox Sports Announcers and Other Boobs
I agree with Brooke Baldwin. You cannot say: “I believe in the First Amendment and boobs.” You can either say, “I believe in the First Amendment” or “I believe in boobs.” But you cannot use both in the same sentence. It also would be improper to say: “I believe in First Amendment boobs” (regardless of how patriotic you think you might be sounding). However, if you voted for one, then saying, “I believe in political boobs,” would be perfectly acceptable. And that leads me to my final point: the only time it might be acceptable to say “I believe in boobs” at all on national television is if you happen to be one.
Fox Sports Radio’s Clay Travis’s dysfunctional response to Baldwin during her interview on Friday, September 15, is obviously offensive to anyone who believes public statements should promote a certain amount of decent coherency along with a certain amount of reasonable civility and respect. While the First Amendment does give Travis the right to expose debased portions of his mind; it doesn’t mean he should ever use it to do that without considering the forum of his free speech. Nor should Travis expect decent people to think he is being more clever than obnoxious for doing so.
But, one thing we should give Fox Sports Radio’s Clay Travis some credit for: at least he didn’t say he goes around grabbing boobs that don’t belong to him or that he uses his celebrity status to help him execute such overtly licentiously conceived plans. Those careless thoughts might just get him elected President of the United States.
What is this country coming to and what the heck is going on at Fox with all this crazy regressive subculture they seem to want to own? How long will the Fox Network continue to appear to be actively promoting sexual misconduct and degeneration within their midst? And one last question: does the basket stop here? Or is it something more systemic that is growing in our general population that should cause us more alarm? I guess I will let you know after I get done eating lunch at my favorite owl themed restaurant (“Oh Miss, can I get another basket of deplorables, I mean, buffalo wings?”).
