John "off his" Rocker. Hadn't heard of that guy in a while.

the racist, steroid-using baseball burnout? sounds like a perfect fit for WND.

FTA: Rocker was the first victim of many shots in the politically correct war waged against patriotic Americans.

Yes, talking about queers with AIDS is everyone's patriotic duty. USA! USA! USA!

Wow, he really comes off as a whiny biatch with a persecution complex in that article. Or conservative, in short hand.

"Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you're riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It's depressing... The biggest thing I don't like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?" - John Rocker

For those who don't want to give WND a click, here is a basic summary:

WAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH I said a bunch of homophobic, xenophobic, and idiotic things and people then pointed out that I am a homophobic, xenophobic idiot. Also, Obama is not a true American and is supported by the debbil.

John Rocker really is the perfect example of a WND hero. Loud misinformed opinions, persecution complex, and completely irrelevant for the last decade.

In an exclusive interview with WND...

In other words, the only "news" outlet, who even remembers this asshole and have any interest in what this washed-up, never-was has to say about anything.

As least when they trot out Curt Schilling saying something stupid (and/or hypocritically taking government loans and running that money into the ground), you think "Well, at least he was good at baseball."

I'm guessing Rocker's $5M in career earnings has run out and he's looking for ways to get people to pay attention to him again.

Heh... Rugged individual and bootstrappy, personal responsibility proponent, Curt Schilling, blames his company's failure on Rhode Island for not letting his $1 million loan payment slide or giving him more tax breaks.

He's certainly got the hypocritical teabagger act down.

While stuck in traffic, Rocker illustrated he was still the quick-witted and opinionated individual Pearlman goaded into saying controversial things in the 1999 interview with Sports Illustrated.

Rocker is very intelligent : Rocker was tricked by a journalist into saying dumb things
Obama is megalomaniacal super genius intent on destroying America : Obama is a buffonish, empty-suit who fails at everything.

I love it when people mention John Rocker, just because of the 1337 flash cartoons of him I ran into when I first started farting about on the internet. Thanks for the trip down memory lane Subby!

FTA: I died on a Sunday evening. Now of course I didn't die in the literal sense that day, but I might as well have. Technically, I'm still breathing and the soulless shell that is my body continues to walk around upright appearing to be intact.

Ohhhh.... I think someone has taken a few correspondence courses in creative writing.

LOL!

I've heard it said that MLB players are probably the stupidest professional sports players in the USA. NBA, NFL, NHL, etc, most of them went to college and university.

Not so for the MLB.

I mean, I love the game and all, but I certainly couldn't care less about any of their "views". If I want to know how to throw a good curveball, John Rocker, I'll maybe ask you, but otherwise you're rightfully ignored.

Here's my favorite Rocker story:

From 2009, Deadspin: John Rocker Is The New Kenny Powers

Last night we had a coed softball game our team is 1-5 and for some reason Ched Smaha thought we needed a spark. We arrive @ Central City and our team now includes a racist former major leaguer, John Rocker. Before the game starts Im standing at the end of the dugout and He and Ched are talking and apparently Rocker wants Ched to soft toss some balls into the side of the fence for him to hit. Ched wouldnt do it and said "its just a coed softball John". He looked @ me and grunted some words..hgolool. softoss ..... I did it and he hammered three into the chainlink fence and grunted a few more times. He then bats 2nd. in the first inning.. you'd thought it was 9th inning World Series 1996 by his intensity in the on deck circle. He STRIKES OUT- Swinging in slow pitch softball. It was great what a farkchop. He then proceeds to Sit in the stands with the only guy in the stands and the guy is wearing a Crocodile Dundee hat, ponytail and an ole Dale Jarrett Tshirt. Sits their all night except when in the field or @ bat. He later hit a swingin bunt to the pitcher and was out. Also he played left center and dropped a routine popup Julie could've caught. I thought it was great. Couldve been a Great MLB Closer and now he went 0-2 w/ an E for the Shamrock Mudtires. He has to be one of the biggest falls from stardom in the history of all sports. Mare went 3-3 with 2 inside the parkers . Shamrock Mud Tires won 21-11, we are back on track."

.I have always been a big fan of Newt Gingrich. He is one of the most brilliant people I have ever listened to.

And that tells us all we need to know about Rocker's intellect.

Cletus, you have to string the words together.

We know "socialism" and "socialist" are evil words where you're from, but I am sure John Rocker said something akin to "fark that socialist in his fartbongoed ass", so he's one of you!

It was basically this.

Although Trayvon getting killed was tragic, why are black people focused on it? Why don't they mention black on black crime? They don't care about Trayvon, they are using this to victimize white people.

You know the normal derp coming from people like him.

Rexipsa: We used to live in a free country where a person could express his opinon.


You're just as free to express your opinion as I am to say you're a silly, ignorant fark for holding the silly, ignorant views you say out loud.

For example, my opinion of John Rocker is that he's a complete moron, based on statements he's made in the past that are moronic.
 
2012-05-30 12:35:29 PM

It's a bummer though, his game really was pretty good.

I heard something about Schilling being out like $50 mil... dammit he's going to be whining about not being bailed out after being a complete boob with money for years.

If this is what constitutes patriotism, I want no part of it:

I'd retire first. It's the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you're riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It's depressing... The biggest thing I don't like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English.

Go to hell, rocker.

Yeah, supposedly that was taken "out of context", so why hasn't Rocker actually shown what the "context" was? Did the writer take a bunch of separate words and make them into that statement? I like how conservatives don't even pretend to be about personal responsibility any more...
 
2012-05-30 12:42:25 PM  
I didn't read the article because it was WND. Did the article mention anything about the 1st Amendment's guarantee of free speech doesn't mean that you'll be free from the consequences of what you say?

Rocker commented, "I said some things about New York City which in the context they were presented led many people to automatically interpret as racist, xenophobic, or bigoted.

"It's [New York] the most hectic, nerve-racking city.

If I remember right, the episode of Penn & Teller's Bullsh*t that featured John Rocker omitted the second half off that quotation (i.e., the "I hate foreigners" part) and other things about Rocker's less-than-savory character. They basically made Rocker out to be the poor, innocent victim of political correctness and gotcha journalism.
