Baltimore Orioles Luke Scott: the most Racist, Backwards and Ignorant Player in MLB



Where was the Twitter outrage when Baltimore Orioles outfielder Luke Scott announced he was still a birther moron? Yes, even after the White House released President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate, Scott choose not to believe in basic facts. Yet the media seemed to largely ignore Scott’s statement, like they do all of Scott’s other insane ramblings that make any thinking person wonder: “does he seriously wear a tin foil hat?”

Since Rashard Mendenhall was ostracized, and lost endorsements over his “unique” opinions on global geopolitics and the structural engineering of skyscrapers, it’s only fair Scott feel the heat for his equally bats%^t, devoid of reality public statements.

Too many people overlook the fact that he actually is a racist redneck, and not just some lovable hillbilly who likes to hunt. Does he get a pass because he’s white? Probably.

You can’t tell one athlete to “just shut up and play,” when he says something controversial. And then let the other one slide when he says something equally ignorant and uniformed. Right now it looks like a racial double standard is at work.

But let’s look closer at Scott, and all of his bigoted and backwards thoughts.

Here’s Scott’s quote from earlier this month, AFTER Obama produced his birth certificate:

(President Obama’s) birth certificate has yet to be validated. If they can counterfeit $100 bills, I think it’s a million times easier to counterfeit a birth certificate, if you ask me. So, all it is, let’s just see if it’s real. Anybody can produce a document, so let’s check it out.

The birther “argument” is just code for racism. Birthers don’t seem to criticize Obama’s policies or governance; they just think he’s not an American. Not believing in specific philosophies and certain ideas is one thing, but Scott is akin to thinking the earth is flat, global warming doesn’t exist, the earth is 6,000 years old, and the moon landing was staged.

Yet somehow, Scott doesn’t really get called out much for being a dumbass cracker.

Orioles employees have made it clear that the organization doesn’t endorse his views. They have even asked him to only talk baseball when he’s at O’s events, and they basically cringe every time he talks to the media. Of all the major sports leagues, MLB is by far the most Stalinist when it comes to controlling information and the message that gets out to the public, so you know Scott is an absolute nuclear meltdown for them.

The Orioles have released public statements distancing themselves from Scott’s political opinions. An Orioles PR guy basically has to follow Scott around when he’s with journalists and remind everyone that Scott “doesn’t really mean that.”

The fact that Scott needed a handler during his infamous December 2010 interview with Yahoo to remind him to be careful when speaking on race, says it all. Because when you have a player who throws plantain chips at his dark-skinned teammates and refers to them as “savages,” there’s going to be lots of damage control for spin-masters to do.

Let’s have some more fun at the expense of the man who keeps 114 guns in a small, temporary apartment, and his quotes:

Obama does not represent America. Nor does he represent anything what our forefathers stood for That’s my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, ‘See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.’ The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn’t answer anything.”

Obviously, he said this before the certificate release, but it’s still funny to point and laugh at how idiotic the statement is.

I look at Ted Nugent and … he’s an American. He has the core beliefs of what it means to be an American in his heart. He lives by those beliefs and those principles. It’s the same beliefs that our forefathers, who fought for our country, have. I’d be real interested in meeting him one day.

Sure, if you think a guy that publicly endorses violence against the President of the United States, and other leading Democrats, during his concerts is your definition of “Real American.” Nugent is a dumb-ass hillbilly, just like Scott.

First of all, the reason the Second Amendment was put into place was to keep the government from controlling the people. History will tell you everything. Just look at anywhere else in the world. Look at Russia, look at Eastern Europe, look at South America. Gun control means control. It means control for the government and the government starts controlling the people.

I’ve spent time in Venezuela. I played down there. I’ve seen what happens with the people down there. People are in the streets throwing rocks and they’re getting mowed down with machine guns. It has nothing to do with crime. Crime is actually less in places where people own guns. Washington, D.C., is a case in point. It has the strictest gun laws, but who has the highest crime rate in the country? Washington, D.C.

The reason why is, they want control. They want control of the people. That’s what socialism is and communism.

Where do we begin?

First off- communism and socialism are economic theories, primarily concerned with the distribution and control of wealth/economic resources, not the allocation of gun stockpiles. Unless of course, guns have now become a form of monetary currency, and I was not told of it. What is a pistol’s exchange rate against the Euro?

If I have 3 AK-47s and bring them to a currency exchange, how many Yen will I get in return?

Also, D.C. was 16th in crime in the most recent rankings, not first. And his meanderings on South America and Eastern Europe are just too fucking stupid to even bother responding to. We are all now dumber for having read them.


That’s what communism does. Cuba, Venezuela. People are trying to escape these lands like a plague. What would make a human being swim 90 miles in shark-infested waters on a raft made of tires and planks? To leave their culture, their family, their language, their way of life. Everything they’ve ever known. What would make someone do that?

Wait, if these hypothetical people (who don’t actually exist, but let’s indulge him) have a lovely raft crafted from tires and planks (Did MacGruber make them?) why would they be swimming? Why not let the raft take them to our shores? And 90 miles is impressive, I doubt the world’s best tri-athletes and olympic swimmers can handle a distance like that. Maybe the sharks nipping at your heels provide added incentive to swim longer distances?

As if the horrible oppression within the nations these people are fleeing isn’t enough.

But to sum up, why hasn’t there been more public criticism of someone who is brash enough to constantly shoot his mouth off; despite the fact that he clearly doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground?
