So Rutgers just fired their basketball coach for kicking and punching his players and throwing out slurs like “Are you a fairy? Are you a fucking faggot?”
Or, as Sean Hannity calls it, “old school discipline.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday reacted to video of ousted Rutgers basketball coach throwing balls and shouting slurs at players by saying he doesn’t mind a bit of “old-fashioned criticism.”
“He’s very intense,” Hannity said in a segment with conservative commentator Michelle Malkin. “And I’m watching this, and I’m thinking, alright, I don’t like it. He kicked one player there. But on the other hand, you now what, I kind of like old-fashioned discipline, on the other hand. I mean, have we become that politically incorrect? These are adults. They don’t want to play for that team, they can leave.”
Malkin seemed to agree, saying that “sports is a rough world.”
When punching the players in your charge gets filed under “very intense” you’ve just lost all right to make comments on morality.
And what does being an adult have to do with it? You don’t punch another human being even if they’re an adult, and especially for not playing basketball as well as you’d like. Jesus fucking Christ.

Well, I hope Hannity’s boss starts kicking him, calling him names and throwing balls at his back while he’s working because he can get another job, and they’re both adults, so what’s the problem?
