Martin Bashir says someone should
defecate in Sarah Palin´s mouth.
Has MSNBC gone mad?

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/15/2013 10:44:43 PM

It´s been a bad week for MSNBC, and a bad week for serious journalism. First, the network learned to regret giving Alec Baldwin a job after he called a photographer a word that is more than a little homophobic. MSNBC have since suspended his show for two weeks. Now, Martin Bashir has scraped the bottom of the proverbial barrel after launching a tirade against Sarah Palin ("America´s resident dunce") that has to be seen to be believed. And you´re warned: it is stomach churning. The beloved liberal journalist used his afternoon TV show to deliver a somewhat justified critique of

If the insensitive moron Alec Baldwin was taken off the air for two weeks, Bashir ought to be barred for two decades. What a nasty piece of work he is, but he is still a great favorite of the malicious leftists that follow MSNBC.

Isn´t it time for a "Resolution to deplore the hatemongering of MSNBC"???

I imagine Todd Palin might plan a little visit to Mr Bashir. A well-placed deer anal removal tool (you hunters know what I´m talking about) and Mr Palin could have Bashir doing to himself that which he would like to see done to Mrs Palin. I´d pitch in for Todds´s ticket.

Someone with a strong stomach needs to watch Bashir´s show and report back the names of his sponsors. This is definitely something they should hear about.

FYI: Todd Palin can´t do a darn thing about it. The msm goads him, trying to get him to blow his top and "prove" himself the crazy, redneck cracker they imagine him and the rest of the Palin family. He probably has an ulcer from having to take so much garbage rather than hand them that kind of spin.

Patrick Henry, who was born on The Red Hill Plantation in 1736, likened continued rule under the British Empire to a life of "chains and slavery." Does anyone think he or any of his listeners in the Virginia House of Burgesses, was fundamentally ignorant of the the nature of slavery, or that he understood the term as represented by the horrific acts of one overseer selected by Martin Bashir as the quintessential slaver? Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. George Washington owned slaves. Does Bashir likewise ascribe to them such acts? Only a liberal would stoop so low to defame anyone, much less a dignified, conservative woman. It is as if their self-presumed moral superiority gives them the right to grossly insult those with whom they disagree.

As a conservative, you know you have won the day when you send the marxist weenie druids into a seething spittle spraying ferver (match point to Palin).

Why is it that every time a liberal gets mad, they act like a b$tchy 15 year old girl at a sleepover (Baldwin tantrums are to die for)? No wonder they never are wanted in the military.

Yes, they´re all so aghast that someone would use the word slavery in comparison to something they don´t like. The left is just so, so sensitive to the feelings of others.

But that never stopped the left from calling Bush a Nazi. As a Jew, every time I heard that, it just upset me no end.

Just read the first and last paragraph, and in the last paragraph, Mr. Stanley writes "...if a Fox News pundit etc.", obviously suggesting that Martin Bashir is a pundit as well.

Can we just let the word "pundit" lie fallow for about a century; my dictionary gives two definitions for the word: teacher and learned man - most so-called "pundits" are neither, most especially this man.

Bashir is merely expressing what every single last one of them, the absurdly labeled "progressives", really feels. Actually, when it comes to Palin they want to do far, far worse to her and wish upon her acts bringing the death penalty when done to a woman. This is who "progressives" really are - reactionary haters. Anyone who´s had to deal one-on-one with their true feelings about "the issues" knows this all too well. So in a sick way, Bashir is doing us a favor by exposing the reality behind Obama´s ideological army - in the end, it´s all about the hate, hate, hate.

And these are the very people screaming loudest about any resistance to their agenda being "uncivil" - a lesson the GOP still refuses to learn, as it meekly tailors its words to their hypocritical demands.

Keep exposing yourself, MSNBC. More full frontals like this would be fun to watch.

Stanley is a certified idiot also. Nothing Palin said was offensive or abominable. She was correct in her analogy. And slavery is NOT exclusive to 18th and 19th Century blacks. Slavery has been around since the beginning of mankind and nearly every race has been enslaved by another at one time or another. Slavery still exists today pedominately in some Muslim countries. Maybe Bashir should think about that one. Leftists are reprehensible and pathological. These people only reinforce my beliefs.

As appalling as this clown is,there´s ahuge movement in the left throwing around death threats and proposing bounties on high profile conservatives. I forge who the person was that recently got a death threat where the perp said he would cut the person´s eyelids off so he´d have to watch his wife kids raped and then killed.Of course we all know about theracial beatdowns and zero politicans speking out about it.

A rodeo clown is barred for life wearing an Obama mask but people like Bashir and Baldwin can say what they want and walk away unscathed.

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

Daily Mail [UK], by Emma Glanfield    Original Article

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
