Oh Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, this is so dreamy, the way you yell at the man who loves torturing people. You will probably be fired — not for cursing, but for questioning the awesomeness of torture — but hey, you made a great YouTube here today. No small chickens, that. One more question though: Why do you love the terrorists and hate America? [YouTube via Gawker]

    Shep Smith, like Meggie McCain, cannot get laid being on the ass side of the political spectrum, so he doth protest saeth Peggy Noonington. I thought Shep might demike and walk off at one point. Come on ovah Shep. You did yourself proud with the Glenn Dick annihalation too. MSNBC has 2 screamers on back to back, Matthews & Ed. Maybe your deep Southern sexy time voice can fit somewhere in between those 2.

    Shepard, oh Shepard we’ve waited soooooo long. Come over to the light side already, sweetie.

    [re=297308]Nerdalicious[/re]: Um, what Nerdalicious said, but with less spittle.

  • Neilist

    No, no, no.

    It’s ISRAEL that does not torture!

    It just gently, kindly, softly lobs a 500 lb. into a Hamas Day Care Center.

    :::Boom::: (In a quiet, humanitarian, self-defensy kind of way.)

    In contrast, the US tortures repeatedly. And tortures the entire World.

    I mean, have you watched “The View” recently?

    Or more spittle. I’m confused.

  • hoosiermama

    Nah, I think he’s spiffing up to be Hannity’s libtard, like “Hannity and Shepard.” No, never mind, it doesn’t have quite the ring. And Shepard would crush him like he did the Fox News desk. Like. a. bug.

  • WideStance

    At least two other (presumably less intoxicated) Americans have expressed a similar sentiment:
    “Treat them with humanity, and let them have no reason to Complain of our Copying the brutal example of the British Army in their treatment of our unfortunate brethren who have fallen into their hands.”
    — George Washington, January 8, 1777
    “Military necessity does not admit of cruelty — that is, the infliction of suffering for the sake of suffering or for revenge, nor of maiming or wounding except in fight, nor of torture to extort confessions.”
    — Abraham Lincoln, April 24, 1863

  • Brendan M.

    [re=297327]Brendan M.[/re]: Sorry about that, but the mere idea of such a thing rendered me speechless.

    As far as the video, I have no snarky comments, just approval of Shep. It reminds me of when I’d show up to AP Government class after having a few drinks during lunch. We’d argue over Bush’s policies, usually Iraq, and I’d say what I really thought. I acquired many a demerit in this fashion.

    I guess the point of the story is that I would occasionally indulge in a 40oz or bottle of wine lunch in high school, and that Shepard Smith clearly had a few drinks, as well.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Why is Shepard Smith so fucking angry? It’s probably because he wasn’t fucking tortured enough as a child or something. Look at me — when I did something wrong, my daddy used to make me go out to the junkyard and find a flat piece of wood and then get a roll of duct tape and then he’d waterboard me six or seven times. And that’s how I learned right from wrong. Now let’s get in the truck and shoot us some hippies.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    It’s a bit fucking confusing…

    I mean coming from Fox one would expect that “we do not torture” means waterboarding is not actually torture, so therefore it’s not actually torture, but “enhanced interrogation.”

    As Shep Smith has absolutely no morals other than to serve as the alleged “counter-balance” of Fox News once every 15 weeks, it makes sense that today would be a perfect day to cold crazy on this torture thing.

    Shep Smith— America’s pundit hero to pundits. And the anchor too! YAY!

    Everything now is new & improved, yuck!

  • hobgoblin of little minds

    Unfortunately for Mr. Smith, there’s a visit to the teabagging torture chamber housed in the “Hannity’s America” studio basement.

    Michelle Bachmann will yell wingnut talking points at Shep while giving him the batshit crazy eyes.

    At the same time, Glenn Beck will drop his shaven balls in Shep’s mouth over and over again until tears run down both their cheeks.

    oompa loompas and crying bunny furries will also be involved.

  • Mr Blifil

    It’s nice to imagine he’s undergoing some kind of late maturation process, but I think all signs point to Shep being drunk off his ass.

    Shep Smith is my hero. I loved his open mockery of Glen Beck’s melodramatic weeping and I love him even more now that he took a firm stand against these mealy-mouthed shitheads. He screamed at them in person what I’ve been screaming at the teevee for eight years. I think his job is pretty secure too, if wikipedia is anything to go by.

    I think the real prize of the video, if you turn the sound up, is Shep’s quiet “oops” about 7 sec after he lets that f-bomb drop and the “I’m in such deep shit” face he wears for the rest of the clip.

    [re=297321]Jim Newell[/re]: I’m forcibly reminded of the 30 Rock. “For once, you’ll be in a room full of women and you’ll be the least crazy one,” The thought is almost enough for me to subject myself to The View. Almost.

    I’m afraid one day Glenn Beck will go Bud Dwyer just to prove one of his 9.12 steps.

  • Heq

    I think Shep’s had a hard go. His vision of who and what America is has come undone, as America has done immoral things (he does not want to accept torture was committed, and people who try to justify torture put the lie to his beliefs), and people aren’t able to just stand on their own. The moment shit gets tough Americans mewl for the government.

    It appears there are no cowboys left for Shep to dream dreamy dreams about.

  • lumpenprole

    My God. That defeated slump. That bitter sulk.

    “It doesn’t matter if it works.” That’s not the point at all! Nerve gas works! MADNESS, MADNESS all around me! They’re babbling scripted nonsense like they’re being paid to vomit up these lies. Wait a minute…

  • boy_howdy

    [re=297413]Heq[/re]: It’s been brewing for awhile now. He showed remarkable humanity during the Katrina fiasco. He wasn’t the only Fox personality to let the mask slip, but it’s him I remember most. He was ashamed of what he was seeing all around him. Damn the consequences, he didn’t care who knew it.

  • buggers

    [re=297319]hoosiermama[/re]: True, the more spittle that flies, the harder they’re trying to prop a new liberal figurehead. Or Shep just had a few too many Makers at lunch.

    I used to think Shep Smith was just a meat puppet. Could he have been transformed by the Blue Fairy into a real, live boy?

  • bago

    When you watch the earlier Shep tape you can see at this point he’s just pissed off. Already yelled that this is America and we do not torture (credit Washington, Lincoln, other luminaries) and to have to put up with the equivocating bullshit again…

    He shows restraint in not pimp-slapping these pricks like a wayward chavez.

  • timeoutofmind

    give ME a fucking break. he proudly fronts a channel that advocates, supports and covers up for a regime that tortured, lied, started fake wars, murdered and cheated.

    i don’t give a shit that he “goes off the reservation” one out of a thousand times. if he doesn’t like it, he knows exactly where the door is.

    nah .. didn’t think so. as long as he puts his nazi fox costume on every morning, he’s a guilty as the rest of them. see: powell, colin.

    until you have the balls to quit on principle, stfu.

  • Bruno

    Seeing as I only watch Fox clips through Wonkette, is this Shep character a decent guy? This is the second time he’s seemed pretty cool by my standards.

  • sanantonerose

    Shep Smith is the “balanced” part of “fair and balanced.” They put a brick in his pants and shove him out on set.

  • DoctorCulturae

    Mr. Smith has Ballzheimers Disease not.

    The question after all these years is why wasn’t there someone, anyone in the MSM willing to make a similar series of clear, passionate, objective declarations earlier. Why? Because they’ve been chasing the ambulance. It takes jesters like Stewart, Colbert, Black to use irony to say it. Smith isn’t coming over to the other side, he’s just evincing a position: it’s America, we don’t torture, period. Additionally.

  • KilgoreTrout_XL


    But I agree he’s going to get really fired, soon.

    [re=297506]Neilist[/re]: No Nells, you see a “crush” actually has nothing to do with thighs (well, maybe a few heavy thighs if you’re successful). It’s when a girl or boy has warm fuzzy feelings for another. I do hope you experience the phenomenon of a crush one day. However, I feel I must tell you that at least from what you write here, you are going about it all wrong. You see, Nells – the idea is NOT to turn people off. Work on it a little, you’re a bright boy. I’m sure you’ll get it eventually.

    I have news for you Faux Hounds. The entire Fox News thing is a giant come on to stoke viewers into a frenzy in order to respond to advertising. It DOES NOT MATTER what they say. None of them believe it. They know that the secret to viewership is well-articulated nonsense, hyperventilation and Anne Coulter in a dress spewing hatred. Americans love it. It’s entertainment. It’s money. It’s teabags.
