What is it i say about Leftists? Oh yes, that they will always take the side of dictators and in the case of Iran, homicidal fanatics over the side of America or Israel. Ladies and gentleman, may I present the walking talking proof of that. One Eugene Robinson
Speaking to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, on Wednesday night Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson attacked the GOP for sending a letter to Iran expressing their opposition to a proposed nuclear deal between the United States and Iran. Robinson eagerly touted the Iranian response to the GOP and argued that they “sound like a voice of reason in this whole thing by saying, you know, this whole thing is silly, we’re not paying any attention to it and nobody else should.”
MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson said on “Now w/Alex Wagner” that Bill Cosby didn’t just allegedly rape women; he raped the entire black community with his famous comments critiquing the community
WAGNER: And many in the black community say he has had not the right tact in talking about the issues that plague African-Americans…
DYSON: …You’re beating up on people. You’re a hypocrite by doing so, which is why I never speak about a lot of stuff… I’m not going to get up on a megaphone to beat someone down. And Bill Cosby has been relentless and nasty.
Let me tell you something else; the very kind of man who would rape woman, allegedly, is the same kind of man who will rape an entire black community. Poor black people, who are powerless before him, using his powerful foot to clamp down on their neck. And black people who think that tough love and hate are the same thing, and that excoriation is the sign of affection, I think also have to admit this is something that is a blistering part of our own psyche that has to be addressed.
Yep, we certainly cannot have any black person taking responsibility for anything they do or any consequences they face right? Hell if they start doing that, then race baiters like Dyson would have to get a real job. The fact is that Leftist trash like Dyson are and have been screwing the Black Community for years. Fortunately, I see more and more Black American standing up and calling Dyson and others on their BS. Of course, they are viciously attacked for it, and we need to support them against these attacks
Case in point, one Alex Wagner of MSNBS via Weasel Zippers
The woman whose recent wedding President Obama attended is okay with stoking the racial fears of black Americans—if that’s what it takes to drive them to the polls and secure Dem victories. Alex Wagner devoted a segment of her MSNBC show today to the naked appeals to the racial fears of black Americans that Democrats are making in campaign ads. Wagner discussed Dem ads that seek to stoke black fear toward Republicans by invoking Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.
You might think Wagner would have condemned these ugly tactics, explicitly aimed at driving Americans apart based on their race. Think again. To the contrary, Wagner concluded the segment by saying that it shouldn’t have to be the kind of threats contained in these ads that get people to vote, “but if it does, so much stronger the party is for it.”
Just another example of the Left cares nothing about the truth, to them anything that gets them power is OK!
No wonder MSNBC’s ratings are horrible. Its producers obviously do a very poor job vetting “experts” and its hosts do a very poor job actually listening to the poorly-vetted “experts.”
MSNBC host Krystal Ball gazed into the camera to tell the world she had someone in the American embassy and he told Ball he saw “a projectile flying through the sky and it would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass.”
Ball, without missing a beat, responded, “so it would appear the plane was shot down, can you tell us anything more from your military training, of what sort of missile system, uh, that may have been coming from?”
“You’re a dumb ass, aren’t ya,” the “expert” responded.
After a long pause, Ball said, “I’m sorry sir?” apparently still not realizing what was going on.
She then cut to a commercial.
The power of whiteness: RT @hope_and_chains: My family survived a concentration camp, came to the US w/ nothing, LEGALLY, and made it work.
Wow, just wow. The Junior Race Pimp just went there. So where is the national outcry about anti-Semitism?
Bill Press, who might be the biggest ass hat on the Left, and that is saying something
Is it me or did Press actually say ObamaCare is doing “so well”? Good grief. He cannot be serious. And check out the “Conspiracy Card” he plays. He is a partisan hack, of course you have to be a left-wing hack to be a guest on MSNBS, especially on Sharpton’s show.
I would like to ask Press one question about Benghazi, or the VA scandal. If there is a “conspiracy” then who is complicit? The Republicans? They are not in the White House. They are not running the State Department. Democrats are! The Republicans did not lie about Benghazi multiple times. They did not repeatedly blame a video when they KNEW that Benghazi was a terror attack. Democrats did, and the evidence is plain to see, there is no doubt about this. Team Obama LIED! And they imprisoned a man for what, a year? All under the guise of blaming a video. Hey, if Press wants to call conspiracy, he needs to look at Team Obama.
Nothing is ever to blame for anything that happens to a Black person, except RAAAACISM!
MSNBC host Touré tore into President Barack Obama over his announcement on Thursday of a program to address disproportional rates of poverty and crime among African-American youth. The MSNBC host insisted that Obama was misguided to focus on the family and “personal responsibility” as ways to address those issues. He insisted “structural racism” was to blame for crime and poverty in the African-American community.
Touré began by praising the president for speaking to black youths in a way “only a black president could.” However, he said he was “depressed” by Obama’s outreach because even he would be unable to address many of the problems facing the black community.
“But when the president speaks to the black community, there’s often a dive into the politics of personal responsibility,” he continued. “I cringe at that, as if effort and excuses have been the problem.”
“No,” Touré asserted. “It’s been structural racism.”
Yeah, sure Toure, we need to drop any personal responsibility and embrace Social justice right? I will say that people like Toure are a blight upon Black Americans. His message of total blame shifting and government dependence is racist, and poisonous.
Good Freaking grief, ALL, and I mean ALL Matthews, and most of the rest of the MSNBS crew does is vilify Republicans, the Tea Party, Conservatives, Southerners, gun owners, and so on. Yet they have the unmitigated gall to whine that Republicans are mean to the Obamassiah?
Again, the hypocrisy is as thick as the ice in Antarctica. Note Matthews and his guests NEVER admit that Republicans are differing with the president, many of them quite respectfully, on issues and ideals. No, they just attack the Right for daring to dissent. I thought dissent was patriotic? Isn’t that what the Left parroted during the Bush presidency?
You have to hand it to MSNBS, you really do. That network is THE biggest tree in the Grove of Low Hanging Blogging Fruit, and employs a greater concentration of Moonbats and Leftists than can even be contemplated. These anchors, I would call them on air talents but they seem to have no talent save for lying, are at least funny. And, they do serve as a stark reminder that the Left is nothing but an over emotional wasteland of idiots. But, stupid can be funny, as Ed Schultz proved the other day when he made this pronouncement “Republicans, they’re afraid of me. They don’t want to talk to me.”
Really Ed? No one is afraid of an intellectual debate with Ed Schultz of course. Now many folks might be too smart to waste their time going on Ed’s show on MSNBS. They realize they would not be allowed to speak, or answer questions. they know Ed’s tactics, and they know Ed is afraid of debate unless he can control it. So, stop it Ed, my gut is hurting from laughing so hard.
Now, if you really want a debate Ed you could try debating yourself over all that union money you have taken to be their water boy, that might be fun to watch Mr. Pro-Worker.
Bob Belvedere has this report on WAgner, who suffers from CBS, Cute But Stupid
Monday’s NOW with Alex Wagner on MSNBC started with some video footage of nuns singing songs to the elderly poor. But, judging by the discussion that ensued between Wagner and her two guests, you’d think the Little Sisters of the Poor were more intimidating than the Sopranos.
“The administration must now deal with this latest threat to the nation’s health care law: these ladies, the Little Sister of the Poor.”
That was MSNBC’s Wagner, who also actually said: “It seems this administration has bent over backwards to ensure that people can exercise their religion” and, “Women’s lives are being saved by provisions in the Affordable Care Act.”
Forget the fact that the claim that women’s lives are being saved by ObamaCare, odd no Liberal calls it ObamaCare anymore, is specious rhetoric. Believe it or not there WAS health care BEFORE ObamaCare. I want to focus on this nugget of foolishness
“It seems this administration has bent over backwards to ensure that people can exercise their religion”
Hmmm, actually, no president ensures that right. The Constitution does Alex, you really ought to read that document sometime. And, to be entirely honest Alex, the right to exercise your religion is a natural right. Government cannot give, or take such rights. Natural rights are as inherent to us as our blood is. What is wrong with the Left? Their total detachment from our founding principles, and their abject refusal to embrace the wisdom that our Founders had. These things are foreign to ignorant buffoons like Alex Wagner. To her all rights come from government, and are entirely conditional on government benevolence.
But that would not go far enough in describing how loathsome this race pimp is
What a genuinely stupid man, assuming he actually believes his own BS, Dyson is. But I doubt he is after anything but keeping his job as a race pimp by spreading such racist, and divisive remarks. I cannot find the proper words to describe how much I despise this walking, ranting pile of hippo dung.
As intellectually deep as your nearest dried up mud puddle
I am confused here, I thought the Left desired tolerance? Is Mr. Robertson not able to ask a question? I mean considering that about 98 or 99% of people prefer heterosexual intercourse to, well, what Chris Hayes’ guest obviously prefers, is it that odd that Robertson might pose such a question? As for me, I have often said I do not give a rip about who you sleep with, but I do not understand Homosexuality. I mean how would a man watch Salma Hayek dance in From Dusk Till Dawn and NOT have dirty thoughts? Does asking such a question make me Homophobic? Of course not. But, of course, the aim here is not really inclusion or tolerance, it is rather to destroy freedom of speech. Not by legislation, but by intimidation. If we are afraid to speak, the Left will have won, so, therefore I stand with Robertson, and I stand against the bullies on the Left.
What? Oh, OK, I will offer, strictly for context, the Salma Hayek scene I referenced.
The Angriest Man on TV™ gets paid big bucks for his act as a left-wing populist who hates Republicans like God hates sin. Alas, when it comes to the lowly wage slaves who haul the freight at his network, Ed Schultz sounds like more like Ebenezer Scrooge:
Ed Schultz decided to take a break from his normal act of ranting against Republicans today by raging against some fellow liberals who had the temerity to criticize him and other MSNBC hosts for declining to publicly take the side of union members in a dispute they’re having with the cable channel’s parent company, NBC Universal.
Schultz . . . lashed out at a report from Salon.com which mentioned him: “I become the target because I’m living good. I become the target because I have a platform. . . . They’re just out to take somebody down who’s got something they don’t have.” . . .
“I’m not going to lower myself to people who just have got employment envy, income envy, exposure envy, platform envy,” Schultz said, according to a Salon transcription of the show. . . .
Schultz also attacked an internet columnist named David Sirota in a way that could not be construed as anything but “punching down.”
“It’s interesting that you have had class envy on me for years, that you’re never going to be as big as I am. That’s what you’re all about, Sirota.” He reiterated his opinion moments later, calling Sirota a “loser.”
Wow, that’s weird. I actually agree with Ed Schultz: His critics areenvious, and David Sirota is certainly a loser. But that message is not in sync with the egalitarian ethos of the Left, and Ed Schultz just exposed himself as a loud, phony, hypocritical plutocrat.
Did I mention Ed Schultz’s reported salary is $4 million a year?
Four Million for that ass hat? Whoever thought acting like a complete buffoon with anger management issues could make you rich? But, when you think about it, many rich Liberals are not that different from Schultz are they? Angry, bitter, foul-mouthed, need I go on?
Funny how Liberals like Schultz change their tune on the “rich” when they are themselves attacked for being rich.
This is analogous to the problem of conservatives making Fox News a singular focus of efforts to combat liberal media bias. As early as February 2009, I described what I called “The Fox Trap”:
Media-wise, the GOP made the mistake of putting all its eggs in one basket. I enjoy Fox News, but it has created a syndrome where Republicans watch Fox all the time and delude themselves into thinking, “Hey, our message is getting out! We’re winning!” Fact: The evening news broadcasts of ABC, NBC and CBS reach a combined audience of about 22 million; the top rated Fox News show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” reaches 4 million viewers. So if the three broadcast networks are viciously biased against Republicans – and they are – then that anti-GOP message is reaching more than 5 times as many TV viewers as Fox.
[D]uring the Bush presidency, the Left created institutions (notably Media Matters) based on the dubious theory that Fox News and other conservative media had too much influence.
That theory cannot be reconciled with the facts:
NBC Nightly News . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9.3 million
ABC World News . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8.2 million
CBS Evening News . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7.3 million
Fox News (The O’Reilly Factor) . . . . . . . . . . . 3.2 million
MSNBC (Hardball with Chris Matthews) . . . . . 940,000
CNN (Anderson Cooper 360) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 605,000
Fox News is, as it proudly boasts, Number One in Cable News, accounting for 68% of the cable news audience. Add in the major network evening news broadcasts, however, and the total news audience is closer to 30 million, of which Fox’s share is about 11%.
In other words, 89% of news on TV is reliably liberal in its perspective, and the Left’s obsession with Fox News is absurd. Why should Media Matters have an annual budget of $10 million to counteract the influence of a network that gets 11% of the news audience?
We could discuss at length the ramifications of this data, but the point to be made immediately is that Fox News has functioned like a channelizing terrain feature in the informational battlefield. For the defenders of liberal media hegemony, all they had to do was to isolate Fox — identify it as a hostile force in the eyes of other media — and then to target both the network’s messages and its messengers.
Some very good points raised there. Fox has not influenced the rest of the media to change their game. Instead they have just been pigeon-holed as “Right Wing” by the Left, and to many, many Americans, who get their news from NBC, CBS, and ABC, well, Fox has a, shall we say tarnished reputation. In short, we cannot just rely on Fox News folks. Or on talk radio, which also has been smeared mightily by the Left, or on blogs, which have also been smeared and marginalized by “real journalists”. Stacy McCain sums it up very well
Andrew Breitbart understood this tactic, and fought very hard to escape the “Fox Trap,” which is why he delivered one of his biggest scoops on the WeinerGate scandal — the Meagan Broussard story, which confirmed that Weiner was “sexting” with multiple women — directly to ABC News as an exclusive. If conservative messages and messengers can be limited to one media channel, and that channel reaches no more than a minor fraction of the total news audience, liberals win. It’s really that simple
Indeed, the same was said by MSNBC host Ed Schultz on Wednesday who revealed that Democratic members of Congress are approaching him for messaging tips. His unqualified recommendation: Democratic members should be shouting from the hilltops, “It works!”
“That’s all you have to say: it works,” Schultz declared. “And it’s only going to get better.”
Ed also thinks the Titanic was a very successful cruise ship, and that the Chicago Cubs are the winningest franchise in sports.
Via Daily Caller:
Left-wing journalist Jeremy Scahill appeared on the syndicated show “Democracy Now!” this Thursday to discuss the global “war on journalism,” claiming that “this White House seems to only want state media.”
Scahill spoke with left-leaning hosts Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez about the global suppression of reporters in places far-flung such as Somalia and Mexico.
But although he was responding to the British government’s crackdown on The Guardian newspaper, Scahill reserved special ire for the Obama administration’s aggressive actions against reporters and the First Amendment.
“You have, on the one hand, President Obama saying that his administration is going to be the most transparent in history and that they want to be friends with the press,” he said. “And on the other hand, they are monitoring the metadata of journalists, they are seizing phone records, they are trying to compel journalists to testify against their sources, they are trying to figure out who journalists are talking to within government so that they can go and indict those people.” […]
“Our profession, our trade is the only one specifically cited in the Constitution for a reason,” he said. “When all three branches of the government are colluding against the interests of the people, it’s the responsibility of journalists to hold them accountable. But this White House, like Bush’s before, they seem to want only state media. They want everything to look like MSNBC, and that’s not real journalism.”
Well, of course, Scahill had to take a shot at the Bush administration, but at least some on the Left are starting to open their eyes. The question is will they still side with Obama in the next two elections? Will there ever be a serious push by journalists to be well, journalists rather than water carriers for Team Obama? I never wanted the media to be “anti-Obama” I just want the media to be pro-reporting! Tell the truth!
