Watch: Fox Host Rants that Rutgers Firing Furthers 'Wussification of American Men'

Eric Bolling says the firing of coach who abused athletes shows that "our culture is in decline."

Fox News host Eric Bolling bemoaned Rutgers University’s decision to fire men’s basketball coach Mike Rice, after video surfaced of Rice abusing players by throwing basketballs at them, shoving them, and harassing them with profane and homophobic language, including “fucking faggot.”

“We’re in the midst of political correctness crushing our ability to teach kinds, to discipline kids, to disagree with people or one another or kids,” Bolling complained. “Our culture is in decline, but this is an example of our culture in free fall and I’m saying this because he got fired, not because of what he did.” Watch it:

Rutgers is also embroiled in a lawsuit from a former employee, Eric Murdock, who alleges he was fired for blowing the whistle on Rice’s behavior. Murdock, an ex-NBA player, served as former director of player development for the team, and had reported that Rice was engaging in illegal conduct.

But Bolling dismissed all this, arguing that the players are “used to this coach, he does this.”
