Rachel Maddow to Receive Award for Her 'Civility' and 'Tolerance' (ugh!)
Newsbusters.org ^ | 8-17-10 | Noel Sheppard

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow is actually about to win an award for her "civility" and "tolerance."

"The Walter Cronkite Faith & Freedom Award, established by Interfaith Alliance in 1998, recognizes individuals who courageously promote democratic values, defend religious freedom and reinvigorate informed civic participation," reads a statement released by the organization Monday.

"The award recognizes individuals whose actions have embodied the values of civility, tolerance, diversity and cooperation in the advancement of public dialogue and public policy on traditionally controversial and divisive issues."

Rachel is very very liberal.

Why does she insist on looking like a boy?

She doesn’t rant and rave as much as Olbermann or some other nitwits on MSNBC, but, she’s still parroting the liberal line and denigrating conservatives every chance she gets.

Members of privileged minority groups can do no wrong. Their intolerance and hate is magically transformed into wonderful, kind, tolerant behavior worthy of being admired.

Will she receive an award for her aberrant life style as well?

How can she reinvigorate civic participation if she’s in the Witness Protection Program known as MSNBC?

Remarkable: if she’s civil, then most of us here are downright self-effacing. Or is there a beam in the eye of the Walter Cronkite Foundation, you think? (heh)

I’d take Ed Schultz over Maddow. I favor the stout-hearted rabid dog over the sneaky snake.

You tickled on a point. She’s civil if you compare her to Keith Olbermann.

To be followed by Michael Moore's induction into the Weight Watchers' Hall of Fame?

Civility? It’s easy to be “civil and tolerant” when you have no one on your show other than people who agree with you 1000%. When you have an amen chorus as your guest roster, civility and tolerance aren’t exactly taxed.

"Walter Cronkite - SCUMBAG"

He has the blood of many fine young warriors on his filthy hands due to his lies and personal agenda.

The Walter Cronkite Faith & Freedom Award,

The Heinrich Himler Friends of Israel Award...

I understand that she is a lesbian. That might explain why she wants to look like a male.

It does make sense, for MSNBC. Compared to Keith “Worst Person In the Word”, Maddow is civil.
