For those of you who missed it, John was scheduled to do an interview last night with John Gibson. Turns out, Gibson took the day off and was replaced by the very uptight and cranky, Julie Banderas (God I hope she's no relation to Antonio!) I don't know what her problem was, but she went at John like a pitbull on Red Bull. But John held his own and left Ms. Banderas looking less than professional...or intelligent for that matter. If anyone cares to email the show, the address is firstname.lastname@example.org
. By the way, if you go to Fox News' website and click on The Big Story, they have streaming video of all the shows for the past week. Interestingly enough, John's episode is not available. Maybe that's because Julie B. made such a spectacle (I am obviously in a generous mood) of herself? Maybe viewers can come up with a better word to describe the unrelenting Ban-tear-ass....Here are some of the comments viewers sent to John:
And a GREAT interview it WAS, John! Even tho Ms Banderas seemed a little hostile, you were able to keep th interview focused on 'SpeakEnglish' whilst being a gentleman about it. Great job; -actually think Ms Banderas was kinda grooving onyou towards the last!
While I am no fan of John Rocker, the interview he gave to Julie Banderas was ambush TV at it's finest. All she wanted to do was chastise him for comments he made years ago. She hardly gave him the opportunity to speak regarding his position on speaking English, which was the topic. You could see the blood in her eyes, she looked as if she had a rabbit in her sights and was about to blow him away. Why don't you have Ms. Banderas bleach her hair blond and change her name to Nancy Grace? Oh, and about that diamond jewelry set Ms. Banderas always wears. She should get over herself. If it's real, it's an insult to Africans who have to mine the diamonds under deplorable conditions, and diamonds have been known to be used to fund terrorism. If they are fake, she's trying to be something she isn't.
P.S. My family stopped speaking Gaelic when they came to this country, maybe new immigrants could make the same effort.
Just a quick message to say that I saw John Rocker on Fox News yesterday. I appreciate his standing firm and remaining calm and respectful when the anchor really tried to push him during the interview. Thanks for the Speak English campaign.
Saw you on the show yesterday before I went to bowl league. Way to go! I'm glad someone with a public voice shares our opinion. I'm glad that you stuck with the interviewer who kept changing the subject & going back to your comments from SI many moons ago (we agreed with that too, by the way). The liberal drive-by media just doesn't get it. Keep up your crusade and we'll do our part to support it. We are buying some of the tees. Have a great day.
Please stick to your guns and get your message out, by immigrants not assimilating, our country is doomed to become another 3rd world toilet, multi-cultural and, multi-lingual has no room in this country. If people want to remember their roots, they can do it at home, try going to France and getting your Driver’s License Test in the English language, it won’t happen.
Good Luck and keep up the Good Work !!!!
Same old story, John.Free speech no longer applies when someone is using plain talk to tell the truth.Only if you're coming from the left is your speech protected in this era.Most plain talking, honest, and logical thinking individuals have supported you these last 6 years.And we'll continue to do so.You have my respect. Hang tuff!
We enjoyed your responses during the interview on Fox News today, but did not like the way you were questioned. Bravo on your good work!
Dear John Rocker,I just watched your interview on Fox News and I want to say Thank You on behalf of all Americans. Keep up the campaign! It's about time we stand up for our heritage. When in America speak ENGLISH! I'm tired of reading labels on products written in 2 or 3 languages. I'm tired of calling customer service and being asked to press 1 for English. I'm proud of you. Please keep me informed of the progress.
