'But seriously, being criticized on Comedy Central is worse than the Holocaust.'According to CNN’s Rick Sanchez, Rick Sanchez is not an idiot, he merely came from a working class family. And that’s why Rick Sanchez hates Jon Stewart: Jon Stewart is “bigoted” against him. And Jews like Jon Stewart “run” CNN and “all the other networks,” so Jews aren’t allowed to be a minority. Makes sense! That is a logical thing to say. “Wait a minute, this guy is criticizing me, but doesn’t he realize I’m a minority? You can’t criticize minorities.” Why does Rick Sanchez know he is a smart person? Because he said all these comments about Jon Stewart and the Jews out loud, on a national radio show.

If I did just sit there and read the teleprompter every day, Jon Stewart would never say a word about me. He’d say I’m a good Hispanic anchor, “Way to go, you’ve done a good job, stay right there.” … I am a complex human being, I’m not some moron to be…”

Rick Sanchez needs to spend the “time off” his Jewish overlords are about to give him writing a screenplay about his feelings, because he is a very complex human being. He is so very complex that he came up with the very original hypothesis that the Jews control everything, and now we are all stunned by his remarkable insight.

Very powerless people… [snickers] He’s such a minority, I mean, you know [sarcastically]… Please, what are you kidding? … I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they — the people in this country who are Jewish — are an oppressed minority? Yeah. [sarcastically]

There is only one oppressed minority, and it is idiots who are paid millions of dollars to host a primetime CNN show. Rick Sanchez, unlike everyone else who has ever lived, is VERY REPRESSED.

Also, somebody sent us a tip (thank “Aris!”) that Rick Sanchez said his first-grade teacher labelled him mentally retarded. But what do we know? We’re all Jews. [Stand Up! With Pete Dominick]

      I've always thought Rick Sanchez is a complete tool. Honestly, it's not because of anything he says, because I haven't listened to a thing he says in years.

      After the taser video I just hear a bzzzzzzzzzzzt! bzzzzzzzzt! in my mind whenever I see his mug on the teevee.

  • GOPCrusher

    10 years ago, Rick would have been run off the air. Now. He'll be hailed as a folk hero.

    Maybe he's mad because Stewart actually has some viewers

      Or because when people laugh at Stewart its because he wants them to.

          That and we didn't even need Stewart and his team of repressed interns to comb Sanchez tape for highlights to prove to us he's an idiot.

      • NorthStarSpanx

      He's gets bonus points for sober, too.

  • GuanoFaucet

    Sanchez added: "He can’t relate to a guy like me. He can’t relate to a guy whose dad worked all his life. He can’t relate to somebody who grew up poor."

    No, Rick, the reason he can't relate to you is because you are a moron. It's hard to relate to someone when the stupid coming out of their mouth sets fire to your brain cells.

    • nounverb911

    • hooray4anything

      Rick has a good point as Jon's parents both were rich and bathed in money everyday. And since Rick's father worked all his life doing whatever and Rick is merely only a CNN Anchor, does that mean Rick thinks he's not really working hard?

      Hate that BS, that if you don't do some remedial blue collar job you're basically a slacker.

  • Rotundo_

    Just when you think he has reached the bottom of the well of stupidity, Rick digs a little deeper and gifts us with another shining example of why he works for the most trusted name in news.

  • doxastic

    My favorite part is when he specifies "the people in this country who are Jewish" just in case people are having trouble following his subtle insinuations.

  • SecretMuslin

    Rick Sanchez starts most of his rants with: "I'm not anti-semitic, but…" And he ends them with: "Hey, I've got lots of Jewish friends."

    • BaldarTFlagass

      In my mis-spent youth, I was a bit anti-semiotic, but then I read Name of the Rose and thought, Hey, these semioticians have it going on!

    • OneDollarJuana

      Well, not as many as he used to have.

  • nachoproblem

    Rick Sanchez doesn't read off a teleprompter because, as Jon Stewart pointed out before, all they have is some guy shaking his car keys over the camera and saying "Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy!" Of course he was talking about Fox News, but obviously it applies to Remedial Rick as well.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Is it too late, or passè, for a "dirty" reference here? I'm very surprised and somewhat disappointed that there isn't one here yet, thirty minutes in.

    • nachoproblem

      I considered it, but I was afraid it would be weak — too obvious, not really topical, and the phrase "Fucking Stupid Sanchez" does not connect to "dirty" well enough, even though it is more appropriate.

      EDIT: Wait, how about this: A "Rick Sanchez" is a sexual position in which one partner reads off a teleprompter while performing analingus.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Some see it as his audition tape for FOX.

  • GuanoFaucet

    Also from the article, Sanchez says: "deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier, and not the top tier.”

    No, not the second tier, Rick. When they look at you they see a guy who belongs on the media short bus.

    Tricky weasel–letting this story break on a Friday, when he knows Stewart won't be able to respond, probably because he's quite sure that some other moronic waste of oxygen will out-outrage us in the next three days.

    Jon Stewart is bigoted toward non-gay Jews who act gay. That's how Rick Sanchez would sum it up.

  • Trinket

    Uh, Rick, Jon's not picking on you because you're Hispanic. He's picking on you because you're a moron.

    This is what CNN gets for hiring inexperienced cranks, and lets seasoned professional cranks like Glenn Beck slip through their fingers.

    • hooray4anything

      Yeah, it's been awhile since we've had some anti-Freemason stuff going on. If he would have said something abou the Freemansons, I'd actually start watching him.

      • Sanchez is just trying to distract our attention from the imminent Reptilian takeover.

      Yeah but he didn't get fired for what he said about John Stewart, after all Tucker Carlson's boring, bowtied buffoonery said much worse about Johnny Stew…hell the whole Fox News team has. This isn't about that…this is the same thing that happened to Helen Thomas, only in her case some neocon rabbi with a hankerin' for Mooslim killin' entraped her. What Sanchez said as moronic as it is isn't even in the same BALLPARK with what Teabaggers and wingnuts unload on President Obama and indeed all black people and minorities (except Jewish people) weekly; yet they never get fired for it. I'll tell you if he worked for Al Jazeera and Rick Sanchez scoffed at Muslims owning the media, he'd be fired. Simple as that…

  • problemwithcaring

    Sanchez is so out of touch. It states clearly in the ACORN-Salinsky-Ayers handbook that Cubans Americans lost their minority status privilege of not being ridiculed in the media once Cameron Diaz happened.

    • Chet Kincaid

      Since the Cubans here are mostly white and rabidly anti-commie, and because of Desi Arnaz, they got a Conservative Emancipation Proclamation. They're still so mad about the Bay Of Pigs, they'd dig up Kennedy and shoot him again. They only bother with Black Cubans when there's a secret chicken-killing party for Ogun or Shango. If you need some "plumbing" work done at a campaign HQ, they can hook you up.

      See how it feels, Sanchez?

However, on the other hand, if Sanchez had said something similar about gays or muslims, he probably wouldn't be losing his job, and even if he did, he'd be walking straight into a new one at Fox News. I'm thrilled that he won't be on the teevee news (though, we're getting Parker Spitzer in exchange, so meh) but on the flip side, I'm really fucking annoyed that the only bigotry we react swiftly and decisively to is anti-jewish bigotry.

      The problem is that to be as dumb as Rick Sanchez is, you would have to be in the bubble headed blond anchor spot at Fox. Maybe Access Hollywood can pick him up to cover Mel Gibson.

    • finallyhappy

      So basically, you and Moran Rick agree. Too bad we can't fire you

    • axmxz

      Yes, that sure is a convincing thing that might have possibly happened but didn't.

  • Moleman_v3

    Why, God? Why couldn't it have been Wolf Blitzer?

  • Rasvar

    Well, I guess it is official when your fan page disappears from Facebook and your profile gets locked down. One moment I am watching Sanchez get tasered and the next it is replace by a "Facebook removed this video" message while I was watching it and his fan page disappeared like Rick Sanchez at a Jewish Temple.

  • blinky_twinkie

    So did they fire him?

    Yeah, they fired him:

  • miss_grundy

    In Spanish, Rick Sanchez would be called un comemierda, which means fool. Now that CNN has released him, he is free to become the token minority at Fox News Channel, which is owned by an Australian. (We can then see what he'll say about his bosses there!)

  • imissopus

    Hey Rick, Helen Thomas called and offered you a mutual-pity fuck.

  • HateMachine

    So now that Ricky's been shitcanned, Jon should extend an olive branch on Monday.

    "Rick, if you'd like a job, we here at the Daily Show would be happy to be your new Jewish Media Overlords."

  • babsinbuffalo

    Rick Sanchez is the main reason I stopped watching CNN. He is as dumb as a bag of rocks. He will definitely be on Fox "News" within 48 hours. For crying out loud, how many of these dumb people can Fox fit into the weekly schedule??

  • comrad_darkness

    The Jews moved Hawaii? I am impressed. Or Sanchez just is a moron. Let's see . . . which is more likely. . .

  • Billmatic

    I don't know who this guy is but he looks like Mexican Rick Perry.

  • Between Rick Sanchez and Meg Whitman, it's been a great week for assholes fucking themselves over.

  • gijoeice

    Maybe Tony Harris will deny the Holocaust and CNN will actually become a watchable channel during the day.

  • lulzmonger

    Meh, just smells like attention-whoring from someone who's contract is up for renewal.

    From what I've been seeing on the Interwebs, Sanchez isn't an oppressed minority: the Asshole-American lobby is both huge & powerful.

  • Lost_Teabaggers

    Okay so this might seem controversial…but this is getting to be too coincidental for nothing to be fishy. First Helen Thomas said what she said and even though she's been in that seat since the world was young she IMMEDIATELY gets canned. Then Sanchez said what he said and he get's IMMEDIATELY canned. Yet Rush Limbaugh has a long, long list of racist, bigoted, misogynistic and racially insensitive comments but not once has he said anything anti-semitic; he still has a job. Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist with deep seeded hatred of white people, yet he doesn't invoke teh jooze and he's fine. Wingnuts repeatedly say bigoted things about Muslims, yet I've never heard of one being fired for it. Wingnuts repeatedly slur hispanics and black people…yet no action. Two people, one an extremely long serving, polished reporter and the other who's kind of an idiot say something a bit…unseemly; I'm just saying rather than just piling on it seems a bit strange that media people can seemingly slur any group at will and get away with it except Jewish people.

    • DCHatesMe

      Damn straight. It's almost as if Rick had a thought in his brain as to say the One Sure Thing that would get him fired. Making derogatory comments about blacks, gays, children or dogs doesn't always work, but dissing the jews at his job? Bingo.

    • transfatz

      Funny thing. My employers never liked it when I pissed on their shoes either.

  • ActaNonVerba00

    Jewish people are, pound for pound, the most well off people in the United States. A great percentage are college educated and have professional occupations. They are incredibly disproportionately represented in government and the media. what's the freaking big whoop? Everybody knows this. At worst, these simple facts tend to suggest high achievement and perhaps a bit of nepotism, not too bad really. But, when you fire someone for pointing it out it looks EVIL and oppressive.

  • NorthStarSpanx

    Where's Sarah's indignant Tweet rallying for Ricardo's right to insult the Jews? Her unfailing support of Israel (nevermind it is only to facilitate the Rapture) is concrete enough for her to broaden her appeal to the well-heeled Cuban immigrants.

  • housbinfarteen

    "a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart"

    Rupert Murdock just passed-out.

  • NadePaulKuciGravMcKi

    support the federal reserve
    follow your AIPAC orders
    trust the government
    trust that 9/11 story
    trust the media

  • defiantapple

    I think the best part of all of this is John Stewart won't even have to actually make fun of him. All he has to do is roll the clip. Sanchez takes care of everything himself.

  • ActaNonVerba00

    American Jews make up only 2% of the population of America. Yet: they hold 36% of all post-graduate degrees, 46% make over $100,000 per year, they make up 15% of the U.S. Senate, 13% of the U.S. House of Representatives, 67% of members of the Board of the Federeal reserve, 33% of the U.S. Supreme Court. Media: Just taking CNN only, 55% of corporate officers for TBS, which owns CNN, are Jewish. On air, Larry King, John King, Howard Kurtz, Eliot Slpitzer, Joy Behar, Paula Zahn, etc.. Rick Sanchez has nothing to apologize for.

  • Dumb Goy

    Smart people have meltdowns about Jews which can at times may get them in trouble with their Jewish bosses because they are smart enough to know that many of the world’s problems stem from Jews. All the dumb people are busy blaming the blacks for stealing their stuff and Mexicans for stealing their jobs. A lot of dumb people don’t know any Jews and think the reason to hate them is that they have funny sounding holidays and don’t celebrate Christmas.
