Oh happy day!!! What a sanctimonious blow-hard that Sanchez was. Can't wait to see him rediscover himself as the next Geraldo. Porn-stache and all!

And let this be a lesson to all the sanctimonious liberals. Sanchez, despite having a prime spot on a national news show, was consumed by his own personal agenda of "minority rights" and if in a position of power would have favored his own.

The Jewish people are not a protected class under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or its update of 1991. Why? Because of the power this tiny little group has made of itself. The comments he made seem fairly tame. He just pointed out a fact that this segment of society has a higher ratio of successful applicants to media executive positions than other protected classes. Latino is a protected class. I have not yet personnaly seen an executive producer at the network level that comes from this group. I would love to see what the affirmative action plans would be like for the networks using the 4/5ths rule! I have seen in my long life a long list of Jewish executive producers. I don't have a problem with that. But, this guy had a point and probably got canned for speaking his mind in a free country. This hasn't been a free thinking country in a long, long time.

"I'm telling you that everyone 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?" Sanchez said, adding a sarcastic "yeah."
"I can't see someone not getting a job these days because they're Jewish," he said.

Sanchez is a friggin dolt. He obviously thinks that being oppressed means being in the country illegally, it sure is funny how employers are required to pick a minority over a non minority applicant for a job, if the two applicants have equal skills. Yet Sanchez says his people are oppressed.

I know several people from minority backgrounds that are doing very well, because they made the choise to get an education, become legal citizens, and didn't sit around crying "oh poor me, I'm oppressed" They made something of themselves like any other person should do.

I'm sure Sanchez's 14 loyal fans will be highly disappointed.

With Sanchez gone, who's going to take the title of "Dumbest News Person on Television"? Contessa Brewer perhaps?

The list could be endless. I don't have time for that and reading what those morons say makes me sick. But if you insist...
“Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”
“Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”
“The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.”
[To an African American female caller]:“Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”
"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society."
