Gersh Kuntzman is a
wingnut Left-wing writer for a failing (and unreadable) NYC newspaper.
I suspect his aim is to garner publicity for himself. And it’s working, since who would pay attention to him if he wrote rational columns?
In one of his attention-seeking stunts this year, he called on Major League Baseball to bag “God Bless America,” in a column entitled “Major League Baseball Must Permanently Retire ‘God Bless America,’ a Song That Offends Everyone.”
Spoken like a true Leftist.

New York Daily News columnist Gersh Kuntzman wrote Tuesday that the assassination of Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov was justified.
The Russian ambassador to Turkey was killed Monday at an Ankara art exhibition by an off-duty Turkish police officer who shouted, “Allahu Akbar, and “Don’t forget Aleppo.” Kuntzman wrote, “As Vladimir Putin’s man in Turkey, Karlov was the public face of that murderous dictator’s war crimes around the globe and of oppression at home.”
He went on to say Karlov is the “human embodiment of policies” that have killed children and leveled Syrian cities. “So I, for one, am shedding no tears for Andrei Karlov. Frankly, I’m surprised his murder didn’t come months ago,” Kuntzman added….
Kuntzman also described Karlov in the piece in a way that is opposed to reality. He wrote, “Karlov’s job in Turkey was to ease tensions over Russia’s atrocities in Syria and its incursions inside Turkey itself — meaning his job was to enable and normalize Vladimir Putin. Given that role, he wasn’t a diplomat, but a soldier.”
…according to Kuntzman, “his death is the same whether it came on a battlefield outside Aleppo or in an art gallery in Ankara.” He said that Karlov’s killer Mevlut Mert Altintas was also a “soldier” and that “soldiers kill their fellow soldiers.”….
