Anthony Cumia was fired for words and getting beat up. Here's how it went down:
Anthony Cumia gets attacked all the time: Most often for telling the truth about black crime and violence that is stratospherically out of proportion. And how reporters condone it.So what happened?
On Thursday night, July 3, his bosses at Sirius XM radio fired him for it.
“The decision was made, and Cumia informed, late Thursday, July 3, after careful consideration of his racially charged and hate-filled remarks on social media,” said the suits at Sirius. “Those remarks and postings are abhorrent to SiriusXM, and his behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents.”
Cumia was typically defiant: “Sirius decided to cave and fire me,” he told his fans in a Tweet. “Welcome to bizarro world. Fired for (something) that wasn't even on the air & wasn't illegal.”
Cumia says he was out taking pictures—he’s allegedly a photography geek—when he captured a shot of the woman walking under the scaffolding. She’s framed almost in the center of the photo, so it would seem that she didn't accidentally wind up in the shot.We'll assume the accounts are true. If so, then didn't she start in on the racism? I won't condone Anthony fighting fire with fire, so to speak, but in an emotionally charged situation, stupid things are said. He however was physically attacked. For his words.
According to Cumia, the woman saw him snap the photo, indignantly stomped up to him, called him a “white motherfucker,” and belted him in the face. On Twitter shortly after the incident, Cumia wrote that he replied by calling her a “&$;;-:”—since it’s six characters and the middle two characters are repeated, I’m going to way out on the banana-tree limb and assume he means “nigger”—whereupon she punched him five more times. Cumia says that about five black males then started hassling him.
He seems to have extricated himself from the situation without any significant loss of blood, at which point he went into full-on Charles Bronson/Clint Eastwood/Travis Bickle mode in the middle of the night on Twitter:
It’s really open season on white people in this day and age. No recourse. Fight back and you’re a racist. The predators know this. Good luck….They run things now. We’re done….There’s a deep seeded [sic] problem with violence in the black community. Try to address it and you’ll be exiled to racistville. But it’s real.
...in modern America, it’s considered worse for white people to say or think bad things about blacks than it is for blacks to physically assault whites.Indeed. We have seen time and time again that any criticism of the Obama administration is considered racism. Criticize your average non-presidential black person will get you violence in return. Anthony's fault, apparently. He had it coming.
He's a shock jock but he has to watch what he says. I'm all for making better choices in your words and being held responsible for what you say. Sirius can do what they want. But no standard is set for the other side. Blacks regularly defame whites with impunity and none are held to the same standard. So that begs the question, if the media lets blacks get away with bad behavior that whites can't, what does that say about the media's attitude towards blacks? Are they saying that they aren't capable of the same civilized behavior that we hold whites to?
Who's racist again?
