Coldwell Banker Fires FOX News Contributor Who Blamed Santa Barbara Shooter's 'Gay Impulses'

Ludwig

FOX News contributor Dr. Robi Ludwig, who made the claim over the weekend that Santa Barbara shooter Eliot Rodger went on his rampage because he couldn't deal with his "homosexual impulses" and then said she was "misunderstood", has  been fired from her job as a spokesperson for Coldwell Banker Real Estate, according to a note left by the company on Facebook after an inquiry from activist Scott Wooledge.

Wrote Coldwell: "Dr. Robi’s comments on the tragedy in Santa Barbara do not represent the opinions of Coldwell Banker. Therefore at this time we feel it best to part ways with her as our lifestyle real estate correspondent."

FOX News Contributor Says Comments on Santa Barbara Killer's Gay Impulses Were ‘Misunderstood’

Ludwig

Reality tv psychoterapist Dr. Robi Ludwig, who over the weekend made the baseless claim that Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger may have gone on his deadly rampage because he couldn’t cope with his “homosexual impulses,” has now taken to Facebook to try and clarify those remarks made on Fox News.

Writes Ludwig:

I was misunderstood on @FoxNews this weekend, when I was asked to hypothesize several factors which could have triggered ‪#‎ElliotRoger‬ 's spree killing. I in NO way meant to indicate being a homosexual or having homosexual impulses is a cause for spree killing. My job on @judgejeanine was to asses several possible triggers for #ElliotRoger and his behavior ‪#‎peace‬ ‪#‎forequalrights‬ However, I apologize to all those who felt offended. That was never my intention.

Basically she’s just sorry if her groundless speculation led audiences to also speculate on her lack of professionalism and intelligence. That was never her intention.  


Dallas Morning Show Host Amy Kushnir Objects To Gay Kiss, Fine With Male Strippers On TV

Amy Kushnir and strippers

Just the other day the internet exploded with the story of KTXD's The Broadcast hostess Amy Kushnir throwing a tantrum and walking off the set because of Michael Sam's televised kiss with his boyfriend.

Said Kushnir of the PDA:

When parents do not have a choice about whether or not they want their children to see this, it is wrong...I don't call it a moment of celebration...It's being pushed in faces.

Kushnir then ran to FOX News to crusade for 'traditional values'.

A televised moment of emotion and tenderness between two men is "wrong" and it's "being pushed in faces" because parents may not "want their children to see this." None of this applies, evidently, to male strippers who not only appeared on her show this past February, but carried her out on to the set.

Fox News and Donald Trump Upset that People Can’t Say Anti-Gay Things About Michael Sam: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 12.06.42 PM

Fox News is once again stoking fears that equality and gay visibility are going to lead to the death of free speech.

Media Matters reports that the network, in a discussion about Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones being disciplined for tweeting “omg” and “horrible” in response to Michael Sam’s emotional reaction to being drafted into the NFL, came to Jones' defense.

The May 12 edition of Fox & Friends discussed Jones' tweet and compared the story to former NFL player Tim Tebow, suggesting Tebow was "mocked" for being a Christian while Michael Sam is "praised." Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck worried that the NFL's attempts to curb anti-gay attacks on Sam could "offend" players like Jones and stoked fears that such efforts could lead to a slippery slope toward civility:

Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 12.12.23 PMHASSELBECK: When you look at what the NFL is saying though, now, this is a strong message. They are going on the offense against any  sort of offensive comments out there. But does it offend those with their free speech and their opinions to voice them? Certainly when it comes on the field. Will they then go after what is said in the huddle, in a tackle, on the bottom of a pile? Because if you have those times mic'd, you're going to be hearing a lot of comments which would be deemed offensive. Where does this go from here?

Later in the show, Fox regular and bag of hot air Donald Trump weighed in on ESPN's coverage of Sam’s celebration with his boyfriend, with Trump calling the kiss between the two “pretty out there to me.” And on Jones' punishment for mocking Sam, Trump claimed, "We've become so politically correct in this country that the country is going to hell."

FOX News Host Challenges Rick Santorum on His Anti-Gay Views: VIDEO

Cavuto and Santorum

Former Senator Rick Santorum appeared on Fox News to promote his book Blue Collar Conservatives, and during the discussion host Neil Cavuto brought up one of the arguments set forth in the book that marriage helps stave off poverty and how a family unit is good for the economy. Cavuto questioned Santorum whether or not that argument applied to married gay couples as well, at which point Santorum began evading with all of the grace of an inebriated hamster.

Cavuto brought up the very valid point that the questions he was asking could come up in a race. But Santorum insisted on bumbling his responses to a very unimpressed Cavuto.

You can watch Santorum flounder through his interview AFTER THE JUMP...
