CNN goes full neanderthal, hires bigoted gay basher Erick Ericks

Erick Erickson Is the New CNN Go-to Bigot, Misogynist and Homophobe

This ain’t no “post racial” age: CNN has hired a guy who is not just an apparent bigot, but a misogynist and avid homophobe.

In this quote, unquote “post racial” age, CNN has hired a guy who is not just an apparent bigot, but a misogynist and avid homophobe. Erick Erickson, the editor of redstate.com. will begin working at CNN as a political commentator opposite John King on John King USA.

Some of Erickson’s claims:

Erickson claimed President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize because of “affirmative action quotas” (Think Progress, 10/9/09).

He suggested “feminazis were enraged” by an anti-abortion Super Bowl ad because “that’s what being too ugly to get a date does to your brain.”

He urged that “ugly feminists return to their kitchens” (Media Matters, 2/8/10).

He’s a homophobe who asserted that “the full gay rights agenda” means that “men and boys can have sexual relationships free of prudish moral people frowning” (Media Matters, 10/9/09).

Upon Justice David Souter’s retirement, Erickson called him “the only goat-fucking child molester to ever serve on the Supreme Court” (Crooks and Liars, 5/1/09).</em>

Proud to say Erickson himself banned me from redstate.com years ago after I posted that Bush was a fail businessman who only got where he was by virtue of his last name. I was axed with a cheery “Back to libtard land with you!”

My brush with fame.

But seriously, there really is no room in our national discourse for this jackass, but CNN apparently wants to race Faux Noise to the bottom of the media cesspool. Good luck with that.
