Touré Neblett, a co-host of The Cycle on MSNBC, is garnering criticism from pro-life advocates today after sending out a re-tweet on Twitter encouraging women to get abortions in case Mitt Romney defeats President Barack Obama in November.
“Girls, get your abortions NOW in case the Republicans win,” the re-tweeted message said.
Please stop calling them “pro-choice”. They’re “pro-abortion”, pure and simple. They do NOT want you to choose life. They want you to choose infanticide, period.
Despicable Obama ad blaming Romney for killing a worker’s wife is so bad that…wait…even MSNBC slams him?
Dude, you know you have jumped the shark when the mouthbreathing fellatrix lineup at MSDNC thinks you’ve gone too far.
Video clip at the link, and you should watch it if, for no other reason, to get a real appreciation of what a jackass he really is. This poor, mild-mannered CSPAN anchor didn’t deserve the crap he got from Tingles here.
Yes. Chris Matthews is sick of people making fun of him for declaring on national television that he got a “thrill up his leg” after listening to President Obama.
Fishbowl DC notes that Matthews unleashed on CSPAN’s Steve Scully, after asking about the “thrill up his leg” comment during a media panel at a convention in Boston.
“Is the thrill still there?” asked Scully.
Matthews wasn’t thrilled with the question.
“I hope that you feel satisfied that you’ve used the most obvious question that is raised by every horse’s ass right-winger I ever bump into,” Matthews responded, after defending the comment.
Matthews said that he made the comment because he has “traditional values” and loves his country. “I do have physical reactions when people are talking about my country,” he added, noting that a news anchor like Tom Brokaw wouldn’t have said it. …
Ah, I see. The tingle was just he loves his country so much, you wingnuts. He’s just a true patriot, or something.
Oh, and if you refer to him as Tingles (or to the leg “thrill” as a tingle), then you’re gay. Neener neener!
“Perhaps I shouldn’t have said so because I’ve given a lot of jackasses the chance to talk about it,” Matthews continued.
“And usually they say ‘tingle’ which says something about their orientation, but that’s alright,” he added. Later he interjected, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. I have to throw that in.”
Remember when liberals used to pretend that being gay was OK?
I dunno. Maybe Tingles is still bent on his less than flattering display of mental acumen on Jeopardy!, and that’s why he’s in such a foul mood.
This from the same guy who said on at least four different occasions that Sarah Palin was too stupid to fare well on Jeopardy! It takes a certain je ne sais quoi to cut the mustard on that show.
Well, she could not have done any worse than Matthews’ last place finish and puny total of $2,300. You MUST see the short video of Tingles embarrassing himself here at the MRC web site, as it is short yet hilarious.
I’m gonna guess his leg was kinda numb after this!
By now, all of you know about the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, FL, by Hispanic George Zimmerman. Well, the “Lean Forward” network, MSNBC, offered up a news story with a Dowdified quote. Via Big Journalism:
“This guy looks like he’s up to no good … he looks black,” Zimmerman told a police dispatcher from his car. His father has said that Zimmerman is Hispanic, grew up in a multiracial family, and is not racist.
(Sidebar: quick explanation of “dowdified” here).
So, it’s clear that Zimmerman equates “suspicious” with “black”, right? Um…not exactly:
ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he’s up to no good, [begin ellipsis] or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
911 DISPATCHER: Okay, is this guy, is he white, black, or Hispanic? [end ellipsis]
ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.
For the record, I think I’ll let the law enforcement folks do their job before I jump to conclusions the way that the majority of black America seems to have done. But this is an example of rotten, corrupt, agenda-driven journalism and I think MSDNC ought to apologize to both of its viewers.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
Andrea Mitchell on Tingles Matthews’ little-watched show: You know, Mitt’s ancestors were illegal aliens, right?
ANDREA MITCHELL: And looking ahead to the next primary in Florida, 30 percent of the Hispanic community is Cuban-American. That’s a smaller proportion, and so the Hispanic community there is different. And they are less prone to be susceptible to Mitt Romney’s really hard line on immigration, more prone to the Newt Gingrich approach to immigration. The other interesting little fact is about the Mexican Romneys, those looking back at all of those records say that Mitt Romney should look back at the records because the Romneys that came back from Mexico to the United States, they crossed the border illegally.
Early morning beverage warning, because that Maddow
dude “gal” is really huffing some primo fumes. Quote:
“Yeah. That’s exactly right. We are not, we, there may be liberals on TV at MSNBC, but the network is not operating with a political objective. Whereas Fox is operating with a political objective to elect Republican candidates, and particularly, to elect Republican candidates Roger Ailes likes. I think Roger Ailes is a really good TV executive, but their operation is essentially a political operation to elect Republicans.”
As Ace says about Maddow (and this warrants a beverage warning, too):
I’ll have what she’s having (vagina).
I don’t even know if both of Maddow’s viewers at MSDNC believe that.
Both of MSDNC’s viewers were appalled. Story here. The network has since apologized to both of its viewers.
In other news, actual Klansman Robert Byrd (D-WV) was unavailable for comment.
Both viewers of Mike Brzertdvasewdsmsdwrfsfsfnski (or whatever the heck her name is) couldn’t agree more. From Newsbusters (video clip at link):
Shades of “Special Comment”! In a rant worthy of Keith Olbermann at the height of his Miss Precious Perfect histrionics, Mika Brezinski began today’s Morning Joe by tearing into Newt Gingrich for his recent suggestion that Occupy protestors should “get a job, right after you take a bath.”
It wasn’t merely Mika’s words: “arrogant, disgusting, sickened.” So strongly ran Brzezinski’s rage that more than once her voice quavered and she seemed on some sort of emotional brink. Video after the jump.
Yeah, where does Newt get the crazy idea that these are a bunch of filthy, lice-ridden, flea-ridden, street-crapping losers? Oh, wait…
Gratuitous hippie bashing from Mr. Gingrich warms my heart. I just may vote for this guy yet!
Boy, that Mika Brewsizinskydinkydo (or whatever the heck her name is) sure is a buzzkill on MSDNC, no? From Newsbusters (video clip at link):
Ever been watching Morning Joe, and wished you could stop the steady stream of liberal blather? Simple. Say the magic word—Solyndra—and watch the gabby guests fall suddenly silent.Today’s show offered a prime example of the phenomenon. For the first ten minutes, the panel had a great old time cackling and crowing on the theme that the Republican presidential field is a mass of morons. They laughed at the mere mention of Herman Cain, likened the GOP field to a vaudeville show, dragged out the shopworn “bar in Star Wars” simile, and called the Republican candidates “jokes,” “clowns” and “stupid.” But then, 13 minutes in, Mika Brzezinski mentioned a story reporting that the Obama admin had suppressed the announcement of layoffs at Solyndra until after the 2010 elections. Despite Mika looking around the table at her guests as she wondered out loud “why this story hasn’t picked up more,” there wasn’t a peep out of the quickly clammed-up crew and Brezinski breezed on to another topic.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
To recap: Voting for Obama in 2008 proves you’re not racist. Voting for Cain in 2012 proves you are. Got it?
On Martin Bashir’s television program this afternoon, Democratic strategist and MSNBC analyst Karen Finney said that Republicans are supporting Herman Cain because of his race…
“One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy,” Finney said. “I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.”
“Thank you for spelling that out,” Bashir responded.
Fortunately, this was on MSDNC, so this shameful bigotry was limited to only their viewers…both of them.
So the OWS folks are the 99%, huh? That’s odd, because I don’t know anyone, much less everyone, who does the following:
- Goes on anti-Semitic rants;
- Vows violent revolution while proclaiming “Long live socialism!“;
- Craps on a cop car;
- Spits on members of the U.S. Coast Guard.
And now, MSDNC hosts are thinking that the best way for the OWS movement to succeed in their goals is…to get gunned down by the cops or the national guard, Kent State style. And to think that MSDNC has a ratings problem!
But hey, where would you get the crazy idea that this movement was anything but a bunch of average Joes and Janes with legitimate grievances?
The headline of this blog post comes from El Rushbo, in regards to MSDNC’s Lawrence O’Donnell questioning the “black credentials” of African-American GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain:
Herman Cain Endures Lecture on Blackness from MSNBC White Guy
Wait, how did this story get past the editors at MSDNC? Anywho, the intro:
Friday’s news on GDP shows the double dip has arrived — an expansion of only 1.3 percent and consumer spending up 0.1 percent in the second quarter. Astonishingly low by any account. The debt ceiling trouble and lack of a longer term resolution to the deficit will make it worse.
The U.S. has entered a second recession. It may not be as bad as the first. Economists say that the Great Recession began in December 2007 and lasted until July 2009. That may be the way that the economy was seen through the eyes of experts, but many Americans do not believe that the 2008-2009 downturn ever ended. A Gallup poll released in April found that 29 percent of those queried thought the economy was in a “depression” and 26 percent said that the original recession had persisted into 2011.
It is any wonder that many Americans believe that the economic downturn is still in progress? Home prices have fallen to 2002 levels. Values have dropped nearly 50 percent in parts of Florida, California, Nevada and Arizona. Property values are also down that much in parts of troubled big cities like Detroit. Estimates are that as many as 11 million homes have underwater mortgages. Banks have inventories of as many as 2 million foreclosed homes which have not even been released to the market. Home prices could fall another 10 percent if current trends persist.
Perhaps the most powerful argument that the recession never ended or that a new one has begun is the persistence of unemployment. Fourteen million people are out of work. A third of those have been jobless for more than a year. May employment data showed the jobless rate rose unexpectedly and that the economy added only 58,000 jobs. Experts believe that the unemployment rate will not improve significantly until the monthly gain in jobs is consistently 300,000 jobs or more. And, at that rate the gains would have to go one for more than two years to bring the economy back to what is traditionally considered a reasonable unemployment figure.
There are several signs that a recession is firmly in place again and that the downturn could last for several quarters. Most are already easy for the average American to see. …
There are 10 signs that the recession has returned, all mentioned in the article.
How’s that Hopenchange thingy working?
MSNBC’s Brewer to Republican Congressman: Do you have a degree in economics or something? Republican Congressman: Um…yeah, I do, plus two other degrees.
Both of Contessa Brewer’s viewers were appalled. Details:
When Rep. Mo Brooks disagrees with MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, she sarcastically asks: “Do you have a degree in economics.” He replies: “Uh, yes, ma’am, I do. Highest honors.”
Mark Halperin, editor-at-large for Time, called President Obama “a dick” on Thursday on a popular MSNBC morning show and then quickly apologized.
“I thought he was a dick yesterday,” Halperin, who also is a senior political analyst for MSNBC, said on Morning Joe, referring to the President’s conduct during his press conference.
Halperin apparently thought there was a delay for the censors to beep out his word. It didn’t happen that way.
DNCNBC has responded:
“Mark Halperin’s comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable. We apologize to the President, The White House and all of our viewers,” in a statement by MSNBC spokesperson Jeremy Gaines. “We strive for a high level of discourse and comments like these have no place on our air. Therefore, Mark will be suspended indefinitely from his role as an analyst.”
If only they applied civility standards to their hosts, right? Fortunately for Halperin, he isn’t employed full-time by MSDNC. As such, (a) nobody was watching when he made the statement; and (b) it’s not like he’ll be yet another jobless claim on Obama’s watch.
Boy, that Fox News sure is biased, huh? What about NBC?
DAVID GREGORY: At the same time, what’s happening today, we want to take you live here in Washington, D.C., to the scene of AIPAC. This is the pro-Israel lobby, very powerful in the United States. The President will be speaking here, Andrea Mitchell, and this is on the heels of a rupture with Israel. The President said this week that any peace plan, a Palestinian state would have to go back to the borders of prior to the 1967 war. This was significant.
[ANDREA] MITCHELL: He did have language that said there would be land swaps to protect Israel’s security, but it was taken as a red flag by Netanyahu. And what happened then was that even if this was implicit in things that previous presidents had said, Netanyahu seized on it. Even before he got on the plane, he criticized the President, and in such a fashion! He lectured him in the Oval Office. And if you look at that picture that you have up there right now, it was a stone-faced Barack Obama and Netanyahu basically treating him like a school boy. People even who work for Netanyahu, some Israeli officials, told him later that he went too far. That it was, it was really rude and that there would be blowback to this.
BOB SCHIEFFER: And we’re back with the Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. Mister Gingrich, the President made a big speech on the Middle East last week. What did you think of it?
NEWT GINGRICH: I think it is a disaster. I think it is extraordinarily dangerous. I think that it–defining the 1967 border would be an act of suicide for Israel. They are totally non-defensible. Ithink for the United States, you know– we don’t have moral equivalence here. You have Hamas which is a terrorist organization whose stated goal is the destruction of Israel. You have a democracy. Now the idea that somehow we’re supposed to be neutral between Hamas and Israel is fundamentally flawed. And I do not believe that we should have any pressure on Israel as long as Hamas’s policy is the destruction of Israel. And as long as missiles are being fired into Israel and terrorists are preparing to try to kill Israelis. And I think it is– a President who can’t control his own border probably shouldn’t lecture Israel about their border.
SCHIEFFER: I have to ask you though you’re using words like dangerous. I mean, the President was calling for peace. How- why – why can you characterize that as dangerous?
CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: So you talked about no relationship. I mean, they have a frosty relationship at best, right, Jake?
JAKE TAPPER: It’s – there’s no love lost, I think it’s fair to say. And I also think it’s fair to say that when Bibi in the Oval Office did something I’ve never seen happen-
AMANPOUR: I was going to ask you-
TAPPER: -which is, which is this little history lesson on the Jewish people and suffering, that did not endear him further to the White House.
AMANPOUR: Were you, were you stunned by that? I mean, it did look like a public lecture.
SPITZER: Did Netanyahu blow it? Israel’s prime minister draws a line in the sand and Obama walks over it. If your best friend can’t tell you you’re wrong, who can?
MITCHELL: John Heilemann is National Affairs editor for New York Magazine and joins us from New York. So first of all, the angry reception that the President got, was that predictable? Whatever happened to politics ending at the water’s edge? (Right, because Mitchell and her ilk really adhered to that premise during the Bush years, right? – CL)
Mitchell, referred to by Ace as the “executive fellatrix”, gives us some insight as to why Obama attacking Libya without Congressional approval is way different (and more proper) than Bush attacking Iraq with Congressional approval.
You know who doesn’t define the Obama Doctrine? The Obama administration. Nope, they allow this fellatrix to “report” that for them.
Anywho, here’s her summary, along with my notes:
1. “When you have a catastrophe you can avert”. That pretty much exists anywhere at any time, right?
2. “The benefits outweigh the costs”. That pretty much governs every decision a human makes, no? Duh.
3. “You have an international or multilateral support”. You know what she means, right? She means “the French support it.” Because to the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy), the Frogs are the object of their affection. After all, Bush had international and multilateral support in Iraq, except the Frogs were against it (probably a good thing, since it would have been embarrassing to see them surrendering to an Australian camera crew in Fallujah, wouldn’t it?). But hey, now the Frogs are helping in Libya, so it’s all good, right?
4) “Go for it.”
Apparently, if the first three conditions are met, then the president can “go for it” without Congressional approval, the Constitution be damned. Because the French are on board. So we’re good, thanks.
As for Mitchell: nope, no liberal media bias!
Sweet mother of mercy, please let this be a cruel joke. Excerpt:
Republicans in Washington are trying to recruit Joe Scarborough to run against Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) next year.
Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), who heads the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), told The Hill on Thursday that he has talked to Scarborough a couple times about a Senate bid. And he indicated he’s still working on persuading the MSNBC host to run for the upper chamber.
Scarborough is a RINO, period. Do you honestly think he would have a show in front of both of MSDNC’s viewers if he were a staunch conservative?
Cornyn recruited Charlie Crist in 2009 to run for Mel Martinez’ seat, and heartily endorsed him very early. Crist ended up bolting the party and running as independent, getting crushed by Rubio. Cornyn also strongly endorsed Arlen
Sphincter Specter in his bid to keep his PA Senate seat, and like Crist, Specter left the GOP and became a Democrat.
Cornyn has a “reverse Midas touch”, in that everything he touches turns to crap. He needs to stay the h3ll out of my state, and other states, too. The less involved Cornyn is in our Senate race, the better the chances we have to boot Obama’s lap dog Bill Nelson.
Daily Caller has a bunch of hilarious tweets from the moonbatosphere. This one’ s my favorite:
No, this is not satire. It’s the real deal. Virtually no one saw this coming.
Hot Air has a great chronology, and I’d post some of it here, but they keep updating the story as more info becomes available.
Wow. Are both of his viewers gonna take this hard or what?
Fortunately for Eugene Robinson, his idiocy was on display at MSNBC. Ergo no one saw him humiliate himself, except for the one guy who Youtubed the moment.
Robinson practically begs Oba-Mao to explain to us peons how businesses who are crushed by Big Government regulations thrive and expand. Even that dude Rachel Maddow pulls him away from that argument.
References to leg tingles and hair dye? Oh yes, my friends!
Well played, Neil. Well played, indeed.
BEVERAGE WARNING! Put down your drink before reading this, courtesy of Newsbusters:
Patrick Gavin at Politico captured revelations from a Thursday interview Chris Matthews granted at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in DC. On his show: “Obviously, I think I’m the best. But each one of the other people think they’re the best, too….I think I’m the best, generally….There’s no doubt about it, in fact, but other people have different views….‘Hardball’ is absolutely nonpartisan.“
Someone hand me a spatula so I can scrape my jaw off the ground.
Moonbats, both of MSNBC’s viewers (pardon the redundancy) hardest hit. Excerpt:
MSNBC president Phil Griffin released the following statement Friday following the news that Keith Olbermann had donated to three Democratic candidates this election cycle:
“I became aware of Keith’s political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay.”
Olberdouche wasn’t a Dan Rather (though he was easy to fool with fake stuff like Rather), or a Charles Gibson or one of those guys who at least pretend to be unbiased. Olbermouth’s job wasn’t to be objective. I don’t think that’s what MSNBC (Moonbats, Socialists, and Nut Bars’ Channel) hired him for was objectivity. I’m kinda with Jonah Goldberg on this one:
So Olbermann gave money to some Democratic candidates. Ostensibly the rules against this are intended to prevent journalists from giving the appearance of bias. Whether or not such rules make sense for actual reporters, such rules are silly for someone like Olbermann. Does anybody, and I mean anybody, suddenly trust Olbermann’s opinion less because of this news? I’m waiting. Does anyone think he’s less biased? More biased? Un-biased?
That said, I’m loving the rich, chocolatey goodness of come-uppance that Blabbermann just received. Savor the flavor, friends!
UPDATE (11/8/2010 – 08:43 AM EST): Well, that didn’t take long, did it? Dude was off the air for two shows, not even a day per donation. Time will tell if this little publicity stunt paid off for the scarcely watched network.
Ed Schultz isn’t exactly svelte himself, but he undoubtedly amused both of his viewers as he mocked NJ Gov. Chris Christie’s weight in an entire segment. Considering that Christie pokes fun at himself when it comes to his weight, it’s safe to say that, like everything else Schultz and MSNBC tries, this falls flat, too.
Hey, Ed: Step away from the Krispie Kremes before you taunt someone over their weight, m’kay? Besides, your boy Michael Moore might not find your diatribe very amusing. Just sayin’.
And by “right-wing nutjobs”, I’m referring to…Chris “Leg Tingle” Matthews, Keith “I Love Both of My Viewers” Olbermann, and Howard “Not So” Fineman! Dude, did I fall asleep and wake up in Oppositeworld? Video at RCP, which must be seen to be believed. Select quotes:
Matthews: “Is there a specific direction we’re going in? He didn’t even tell us.”
Olbermann: “It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days!”
Howard Fineman: “He wasn’t specific enough.”
Matthews: Ludicrous that he keeps saying [Secretary of Energy] Chu has a Nobel prize. “I’ll barf if he does it one more time.”
Matthews: “I don’t sense executive command.”
Tingles even compared Sir Golfsalot to Carter. For those of you on the left, that is not a good thing.
When President Kick#ss’s slobbering sycophants at MSNBC start questioning his leadership abilities, then you know the dude has officially jumped the shark.
MSNBC and both of their viewers are bummed that the Times Square bomber is a bloodthirsty camelhumping jihadist instead of a frothing Tea Partier. Mayor Bloomberg, elected shortly after jihadists brought down the Twin Towers in his city, doesn’t seem to recall that event, opining that he too thought it must have been Tea Partiers ticked off about ObamaCare.
The AP? They just fall back into reflexive and lazy mode…blaming Bush. Seriously.
D#mned liberals are intent on using political correctness to destroy this country!
Irony: it’s not just for breakfast anymore. Story, along with screen cap, here.
I’m going out on a limb and guessing that MSNBC and both of their viewers totally missed the “illegal” part, since “illegal” means “it’s a crime”. But nope…no liberal media bias!
