Writer Who Got “PTSD” From Shooting AR-15s Hates “God Bless America” Even More

Recommended Posts



Gersh Kuntzman, the same dainty New York Daily News writer mauled and traumatized by shooting the most common small-bore rifle in the United States (and apparently guilty of having Couric-like creative tendencies) has now taken aim at something else that doesn’t bother normal people: a common, patriotic song that upsets his “New York values.”


It’s time for God to stop blessing America during the seventh-inning stretch.


Welcome to the July 4 holiday weekend — when once again, baseball fans will be assaulted by the saccharine-sweet non-anthem “God Bless America” at stadia all over this great land.


But no matter which home team you root, root, root for, “God Bless America” should be sent permanently to the bench.


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.


No, I’m not linking him, as I suspect this was a deliberate attempt to troll for traffic.


We did, however, find an early draft version of his article.


It felt to me like crunkcore — and sounded like screamo…


I’ve listened to songs before, but never something like “God Bless America.” Sung even lightly, the resulting explosion of musical patriotism is humbling and deafening (even with ear protection).


Recoiling from Americana bruised my shoulder, which can happen if you don’t know what you’re doing. The feeling of national pride disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The high notes — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary form of PTSD. For at least an hour after hearing the song just once, I was anxious and irritable.


I’m fairly confident that Kutzman’s views are symptomatic of the rest of the editorial staff at his disreputable tabloid.




Any credible news outlet would have fired him for his hysterical hit piece which had the range who allowed Kutzman to try shooting an AR-15 try to have the article pulled for his intentional dishonesty.
