Skip to comments.Shepard Smith Loses It When FNC Colleagues Ask Legitimate Questions About Baltimore Riots
Posted on 04/29/2015 1:58:32 PM PDT by TexasCajun
During live coverage of the Baltimore riots during the 5:00 p.m. ET hour on Monday, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith scolded and mocked hosts of The Five for daring to ask legitimate questions about the violence.
Eric Bolling simply observing that the rioters were "predominantly African-American" set Smith off: "Hey, it's a predominantly African-American community....But if we want to create larger racial tensions on the heels of this and all the recent African-American problems that we've seen, then we can do that. But if we'd like to look at this as a history of people having problem with police, not people of a color, but people of a community who have had problems with the police."
Smith continued his rant: "If we want to turn this, as a nation, into something that will rile up the races, then we can do that. But it seems prudent to listen to the two sides....you get to this point, where you get no answers for eight days after a man [Freddie Gray] died for looking at somebody eight days later, people almost feel like they have a license to ill."
Greg Gutfeld called out Smith for seeming to rationalize the violence: "That sounds really disturbing to me. It's almost as though you're justifying this action, Shep." Smith declared: "I am in no way justifying anything. I'm telling you that if you forget history..." Gutfeld shot back: "I don't forget history...I'm looking at something that's really ugly right now.

I was flipping through the channels on Monday night and when FOX News brought back Shepherd Smith for special coverage I never went back to FOX News. The guy needs to move to MSNBC.
Go home and take a nice warm douche, Shemp, and you’ll be fine.
Have you ever seen Shep Smith and Rachael Maddow at the same time?
He seems to laid off the mascara wand lately. His expressions seem less pitiful.
When will they get rid of that fruitcake? Maybe we should start a petition.
The most ridiculous thing I saw was Dr. Phil on Tuesday morning Fox & Friends giving his take.
Baltimore has been a hot zone for as long as I can remember. The community has a problem with the police because the community is overrun with black criminals. It’s as simple as that.
Emotional fella, isn't he.
And why is it the guys with the deep voice or builds like truck drivers are mincers inside (well some of them?
Shep... why is it this community has “trouble with the police” and other communities do not?
Could it, perhaps, be that they have a lot more criminality in their “community”?
My dog leaves several Sheps in the yard daily.
Yeah, but Rachel was on top, and Shep was the bride.....
Catcher in the rear.
"Mincer" - New Word For the Day. ... Always learning on FR. hehe
This supports my assertion that the “urban” culture is simply an anti-culture.
They don’t want to live by Western behavioral standards,
and resent the fact that the laws are enforced to make them do so.
