Journalist Erik Abriss has been fired….
Sorry, hang on a second. I need to restart this article and put journalist in quotes.
“Journalist” Erik Arbriss has been
You know, I guess I should be happy that justice struck and this “journalist” is now fired, but I have to say this is the most baseline of all outcomes.
He SHOULD have been fired.
That’s the bare minimum of what should have happened.
As Jim Rome is famous for saying, “no credit for doing the right thing”.
Let’s take a moment to look at the disgusting message he sent:
That’s honestly one of the most despicable things I’ve ever read.
Folks, this is the main point here.
The Media has gotten SO out of control, and they live so deep inside their own echo chamber, that they don’t even realize how completely unacceptable this is in a civilized society!
Under no stretch of the imagination should it even be possible for someone to think they could say this and it be ok.
But yet the left thinks as long as it’s about Trump or Trump Supporters, it’s ok.
That’s how out of control it’s become.
And you know what else?
Did you hear about this disgusting reporter and what he said on the news?
I bet not.
Can you imagine if a Trump supporter said it about someone on the left?
I bet it would be plastered over all the cable news sites 24/7.
Now are you beginning to see just how far the Media has strayed in America?
Our Founding Fathers would be SICK!
And quite frankly, I believe they would reject many of the First Amendment privileges currently enjoyed by major media sites because they have become completely derelict in their duties.
Here's more about the firing, from Fox News:
A freelance Vulture journalist was fired from his main job at digital company INE Entertainment after wishing death for multiple Covington Catholic High School students and their parents in the wake of controversy over the incident between students and Native American activists, a report said.
Erik Abriss, a post-production supervisor at INE Entertainment, was fired after his tweets about the controversy involving teenage students went viral. He is reportedly a freelance journalist for Vulture.
Vulture declined to comment for the Wrap.
Erik Abriss, a Post Production Supervisor at INE Entertainment for about 19 months, was fired after his tweets about the controversy involving teenage students went viral and drew attention of his employer.
“I don’t know what it says about me but I’ve truly lost the ability to articulate the hysterical rage, nausea, and heartache this makes me feel. I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents,” tweeted Abriss.
“‘Racism is in its Boomer death throes. It will die out with this younger generation!’ Look at the s----eating grins on all those young white slugs’ faces. Just perverse pleasure at wielding a false dominion they’ve been taught their whole life was their divine right. F---ing die,” he added.
On Monday, the company told the Wrap that Abriss was fired for his comments on social media that were deemed offensive. The journalist has since locked his Twitter account and deleted the tweets.
“We were surprised and upset to see the inflammatory and offensive rhetoric used on Erik Abriss’ Twitter account this weekend. He worked with the company in our post-production department and never as a writer,” the company told the outlet.
“While we appreciated his work, it is clear that he is no longer aligned with our company’s core values of respect and tolerance. Therefore, as of January 21, 2019, we have severed ties with Abriss,” the statement added.

A GQ magazine writer, meanwhile, apologized for calling to share the students’ private information on social media, a practice also known as doxxing.
GQ’s Nathaniel Friedman told the Wrap that the tweet in which he wrote “Doxx ‘em all” was “irresponsible” and occurred “in the heat of the moment because I was upset.”
“It partly came from having been doxxed by MAGA people myself but that’s no excuse and no one should wish that on anybody else. It’s counterproductive to say anything along those lines and if you make yourself look like an irrational, mean idiot you’re playing right into their hands,” he added.
Fox News reached out to both writers and did not get an immediate comment.
The firing stems from a widely-circulated video clip gave an inaccurate impression that high school students were harassing a Native American man, Nathan Phillips, following the March for Life rally in Washington.
The subsequent video footage revealed that the students were accosted and yelled before Phillips and other Native American activists approached them. Another group – the so-called Black Hebrew Israelites group – were heard shouting abuse at the students for wearing “Make America Great Again” hats.
My favorite part of this is the part where they say they "appreciated his work".
That's the statement you want to make?
Which part did you appreciate, the part where he wished all the kids would die or where he wished all the parents would die?
Shame on you INE Entertainment!
