Bashir's Palin slur is new low, even for MSNBC
Written by 

bashirMSNBC, the network of far left lunatics has taken their extreme hatred to a new level. On Friday, host Martin Bashir called former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin a “world class idiot” and a “resident dunce.” For good measure, he claimed she possessed a “long deceased mind.” 

 

What provoked Bashir? In a recent speech, Palin said that “Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children, and borrowing from China. When that note comes due and this isn't racist, so try it. Try it anyway. This isn't racist. But it's going to be like slavery when that note is due.” 

While this view may be controversial, it did not merit such a malicious response from Bashir. Sadly, the host did not stop with nasty insults; he then related to his viewers the story of a long deceased slave master who committed horrible acts of brutality, including defecating on those he kept in bondage. 

At that point, Bashir incredibly wished Palin would suffer such barbaric treatment. He read aloud a curse word for excrement and said that Palin “qualified” for a “dose” of such “discipline.” In effect, he wished that Palin would be kept in bondage and that an inhuman slave master would defecate on her. 

Of course, Bashir should have been immediately fired, but he works for MSNBC, the same network that tolerates Reverend Al Sharpton, who perpetrated the Tawana Brawley hoax.   

This is the same network that had to suspend Alec Baldwin for uttering anti-gay slurs and getting into fights with photographers. This is the same network that had to suspend Keith Olbermann for donating to Democrat candidates and suspended Ed Schultz for calling talk show host Laura Ingraham “a right-wing slut.” 

Since MSNBC tolerates Bashir, it reveals the type of liberal hate that permeates the entire network. If a similar comment had been made on CNN or Fox, the anchor would have been immediately fired. Clearly, MSNBC has much lower standards than its competition. It must have to scrape the bottom of the broadcast barrel to find enough liberal blowhards to fill their schedule. 

This episode also exposes the double standard about treatment toward conservatives, especially Sarah Palin. No one would dare make a similar comment about Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama or any prominent female leftist. 

In contrast, prominent members of the media savage Palin on a regular basis. If she is so extreme and such a disgrace, why does she engender so much hate? Clearly, liberals are scared by her conservative message and her ability to effectively communicate. So, they demonize her and through their hate speech figuratively “defecate” on her.   

It is time for this mistreatment to end. 

NBC should take charge of the lunatics running the asylum known as MSNBC. 

While free speech should be championed at all levels, hate speech should be condemned, especially if the broadcast airwaves are used for such verbal pollution. 

Let’s hope that viewers continue to abandon this network and that advertisers will follow suit. 

Hopefully, we can elevate the political discourse in our nation. We should encourage views to be aired from all sides of the spectrum, but demand that all broadcasters show basic human respect toward each other and those in political leadership. On these important criteria, MSNBC continues to fail miserably.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
