Fired Racist Anthony Cumia Going On White Power Radio To Bitch About Black Astronauts
When Sirius XM fired radio host Anthony Cumia back in July for his series of racist remarks on Twitter, Cumia vowed not to go quietly into the night. He had a long history of saying racist garbage , and he wasn't going to stop just because he lost an enormous audience. So shortly after getting canned, Cumia announced he was starting up a new show, and then he hit the white apologist circuit in advance of his first episode, which aired yesterday . Cumia warmed up by defending himself on Greg Gutfeld's Red Eye before launching into a full-throated Song of the South on the avowedly "pro-White" hour of hate known as Political Cesspool . During his time on Political Cesspool, Cumia pointed out that Ed Harris's vest in Apollo 13 wasn't the only white part of the space race.
CUMIA: When you watch any of the footage of any of the Apollo programs over the years and you look at the control room of mission control, what do you see? Do you see diversity there? Honestly, let's be honest. You're seeing white males smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee at the console and putting people on the moon. How is this a horrible thing? How is this something to look at and say, "We need to change this by injecting people that do not pay attention to the laws of this country, do not assimilate to the cultures, do not work and contribute to this nation"?
It's unclear if Cumia's reasoning extends to other American feats of engineering, but if it does, then we should probably ban white people from working on railroads or the Panama Canal. It's called logic, libruls, try learning about it sometime.
Cumia went further, explaining that communities that were victims of centuries of exploitation and oppression had developed a taste for systemic racism, like some people do with olives or kimchi.
Cumia explained that liberals "don't want open and honest dialogue [on race] ... They want the continued victimization and excuses that go out. The second you literally bring up the real problems that are happening in this country as far as certain communities go, you're chastised, you're given that scarlet letter which is now R -- 'racist.' And there's no way to discuss this as a white, especially male American without being called a racist."
It really is unfair, you guys, that we don't let dudes go on racist tirades on Twitter and then talk about "the real problems that are happening in this country as far as certain communities go" with impunity. We are sure Cumia was referring to the fact that the preponderance of financial crimes are committed by rich white men, which is surely a failing of their culture. Why, what did you think he was talking about?
Later in the interview, Cumia's racist interlocutor remarked that "a significant percentage of the black community, let's just put it that way, have become like a petulant child," a sentiment with which Cumia agreed. Then, Cumia got up and left, because his dog had started bleeding from its ears.
