Having recovered from his bruised shoulder and PTSD, Gersh/Gish/Gush Kuntzsman takes on singing "God Bless America" at baseball games.

It gives him a headache.

Gersh/Gish/Gush's complaint:

"Welcome to the July 4 holiday weekend — when once again, baseball fans will be assaulted by the saccharine-sweet non-anthem “God Bless America” at stadia all over this great land."
"But no matter which home team you root, root, root for, “God Bless America” should be sent permanently to the bench."
His complaint?
"The song still embodies great things about America, but also our worst things: self-righteousness, forced piety, earnest self-reverence, foam."
"Foreigners!: I once went to a Brooklyn Cyclones game with a British guy named James Silver, who smiled when “God Bless America” was being played. “It’s exactly what I expect from Americans,” he said. “The self-righteousness, the patriotism. It’s always nice to see my opinions confirmed.”
I'm so sorry G/G/G's precious European pals were offended by our little song.  I'm sure poor G/G/G blushed flaming red with shame and horror at this James Silver's snide comment.  It probably caused another attack of temporary PTSD, and ruined the game for him.

Newsflash for G3: The problem is Mr. Silver's.  If he is so rude as to say that to his American host, while being treated to a baseball game, you should have "spilled" your Big Gulp in his lap and said, "Sorry we Americans are so self-righteous, patriotic, and clumsy," and then left his limey ass sitting there alone.
“God Bless America” is as divisive as American politics: Kaskowitz’s research found that 83.8% of people who described themselves as “very liberal” dislike the song, while only 20.5% of people who called themselves “very conservative” have a problem with it."
Hey, let's take a poll on how many of us would like to see G/G/G sent to the Onion to write his slop, since opinion polls should decide everything.
The fact that "very liberal" people dislike it is a good reason to keep it.   G/G/G should take his political correctness and swab it on his throbbing shoulder and aching head.  Maybe it would do some good ... naw, it's poison no matter where it pops up. 
Aside: this article is so over the top and stupid, I can't but suspect it's someone trolling.   


  1. I recommend "America, Fuck Yeah!" by Matt Parker & Trey Stone. However I think Kuntzman would disagree with this, saying it's a coarseninog of American culture, how people are turning away from classics like Irving Berlin, and how the music makes his ear drums bleed worse than the time he turned his white noise generator to mid-level volume.

  2. Pond scum and across the pond scum.

  3. We're talking about tabloid legend Gersh Kuntzman...

    That needs a body guard!

    1. He needs a spine. He's like the Cowardly Lion, going through like flinching and cringing.

  4. You DO know that a holster manufacturer in Texas? made and sent him a tampon holster recently, don't you?

  5. And again, the first 4 letters of his last name tell the story.
