Move over Michael Moore, America’s new favorite troll is at it again.
You may recognize Gersh Kuntzman as the focus of countless memes after the repot he did on ARs was ripped to shreds by every gun enthusiast, veteran, LEO, and girl over the age of 10.
If you are not familiar, after the Orlando Terrorist attack, Kuntz and the NY Daily News tried their best to give ill-informed advice and demonize “Assault Rifles“. Kuntz even fired an AR-15, later claiming it bruised his shoulder and caused him to suffer from temporary PTSD due to the traumatic experience. Never the less, the story went viral and now his face his everywhere. Primarily like this:
Well, they say there’s no such thing as bad press. They also say if you cant write, troll.
Kuntz is coming off what is undoubtedly the greatest achievement of his career. You can’t blame him for not wanting to be a one hit wonder. He’s gone after guns, so what’s a good topic for his next Pulitzer worthy piece?
I know, how about God and baseball.
In his latest article Kuntz go right after it with the opening line, “It’s time for God to stop blessing America during the seventh-inning stretch.”
Kuntz in tired of hearing, “God Bless America” at baseball games. Well, unless there’s a terrorist attack.
Now, don’t get me wrong: When Major League Baseball ordered all teams to play the patriotic jingle after 9/11, I didn’t immediately object. Standing with my fellow fans, as one, and singing a paean to our country provided catharsis, comfort and shared heartache.But it wasn’t long before heartache became headache. The Yankees still play it at every game, but most teams, like my beloved Mets, play “God Bless America” only on Sundays or holidays. But even that’s too much.
The Kuntz continues his argument by including some bogus statistics from fellow liberal-atheists, siting how non-believers and believers alike agree that the song needs to be removed from stadiums.
He ends his post with, “So this July 4, join me at the Church of Baseball by not rising and not doffing your cap for a song that is not the national anthem of a nation that is not uniquely blessed by some deity that doesn’t exist anyway.
If you want to thank God for blessing America, you can do it on Sunday in the other church.”

Heck, I fell into it. And I hate myself for it.
But what can you do?
