Must Hear: Howard Stern's Anti-GOP Rant Is Just A Sad Attempt Of A 70-Year-Old To Fit In With Pop-Culture

Howard Stern used to be funny; he used to be the king back in the 1990s. Now, he is a 68-year-old man who dyes his 1970's perm to make him look like he's in his 50's and is just pandering for ratings - begging to be relevant by regurgitating 'progressive outrage' to stave off being canceled for his misogynistic, debasing, and debaucherous antics if he did not tow their line.

We all know the sins we committed 30 years ago can and will be used today to mark us with the millennial version of The Scarlet Letter. Stern, who tossed midgets, had women strip for food, and poked fun at the mentally challenged most of his career, is now speaking for a generation of pussies who are outraged at anything they disagree with and who make up a version of history that is more in line with their belief system. Howard Stern is irrelevant - he is no longer a shock jock; he is just a mouthpiece for a generation of people who would not hesitate to hang him for his crimes against 2022's morality that were committed during the morality of the 1980s and '90s.

To highlight this, Howard Stern completely lost it on Tuesday while talking about the Supreme Court leak that indicated an overturning of Roe v. Wade. The radio host took his rage out on a “rogue and completely unhinged” GOP. He did not seem to care that a once secure Supreme Court is now filled with leakers - or the fact that conservative justices are being harassed in their homes by the people he counts as his audience. Forget the fact that Stern calls the police on fans who stalk him in his house - or loses it when someone sneaks pictures of him frolicking in the Hamptons. Stern is a hypocrite who craves attention and, more importantly, the cash the SiriusXM pays him.


“I think the whole thing is maddening,” Stern announced on his namesake radio show. “I wish the Republicans would go back to being old-school Republicans, where they didn’t want to invade your private life.” We wish Stern would be the old-school Stern, back in the day when Imus was his mentor, and he had no problem poking fun of black people while his sidekick Robin Quivers melted in her chair and belted out an uncomfortable laugh. That Howard Stern never shilled for anyone - he was his own man, confident in his value to society and not trying to appeal to anyone but himself. That Howard Stern was a genius - yes, he was cruel, and we cringed at many of the things he made his rag-tag followers desperate for attention do, but he was real, and we could not turn the dial - now, does anyone actually listen to this obsessive-compulsive geriatric who is trying to fit into the clothing of millennials? I bet not many.


Speaking of the Republcans, he said “they were kind of a laissez-faire party, and then some of their views on the economy were good. But they’ve gone rogue and completely unhinged, and they latched on to the ‘religious right agenda.’” Never mind that the GOP's values were always rooted in religion. That the party of Lincoln never shied away from their belief in biblical law. Ronald Reagan flaunted his Christianity and his belief that the founders built a nation on the foundation of Judeo-Christian ideas.


So Clueless Stern declares that the Republican agenda is just “weird.” No, what is weird is Stern waking up at 68, realizing that the Republicans are a moral bunch.

“They cut school funding, cut welfare, cut social services — but they want to give you more unwanted children, and there’s no money to take care of these unwanted children, and they’re a mess,” he stated. He makes no mention of personal responsibility, makes no connection to the sick use of abortion as a contraception tool, and makes no mention of how, in many states, aborting a fetus can be done well after the baby inside the womb is strong enough to survive outside the womb


According to Stern, Republicans are ignoring the danger that the demise of Roe v. Wade would bring. But he neglects to admit that the Supreme Court is not deciding the legality of abortion, only saying it is not a right guaranteed under the Constitution and, therefore, is an issue that each State best decides.


“The Supreme Court is not going to take care of them,” he announced. “[Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)] is not going to take care of them. No one in the Republican Party is going to take care of them. [Former President Donald] Trump ain’t going to take care of them,” Stern stated.

“I don’t know their game plan in life,” the radio host announced of the court, “but, according to them, it’s just beautiful to be born into a loveless world.”

Stern went on to say, “How women vote for this agenda is beyond me. Who the hell wants to carry a baby that you do not want? And, again, the people who carry these babies who don’t want them don’t raise these kids and then we’re stuck with them. Society is stuck with them. The people who are anti-abortion, they don’t give to charity. They don’t raise these kids. I don’t know who they think is going to raise them.”

He announced that “If men got pregnant, it would be a different story. No man would want to be raped and then have to carry his rapist’s baby. Men were ready to tear this country down because we asked them to wear masks, let alone have some babies they don’t want.” Again, Stern neglects the fact that while in some states, Abortion will be restricted but in other states, like his own New York, killing a fetus in the ninth month would be a distinct possibility. Each state should have the ability to decide for itself, and while there are at least 23 that will restrict a woman's right to abortion, there are at least 20 which would even go so far as to use taxpayer cash to fund abortions. His own governor, Kathy Hochul, said the state would pay for out-of-state women to come to New York to have an abortion if it is illegal in their state - let Stern and his millions help fund that if he feels so strongly about the issue.

Stern talked regarding how we got to this point with “radical Supreme Court justices who all agreed that abortion was wrong” and the “minority viewpoint running this country” under the flawed electoral college system.

It is time for people like Howard Stern to let sleeping dogs lie, enjoy his hundreds of millions and stop with the radio schtick - it only serves to diminish just how great he used to be.
