Angry Left Meltdown (O'Donnell Alert)
Opinion Journal ^ | 10/25/04 | James Taranto

Posted on 10/25/2004 2:51:41 PM PDT by freespirited

We've transcribed a portion of O'Donnell's comments to give you the flavor:

It's one of the many lies that the book advances. To me the most interesting lie, John O'Neill, that I would submit to you that you should answer, is, you make a lying claim that John Kerry's antiwar activity prolonged the amount of time that prisoners of war were held in Vietnam. . . . That's a lie, John O'Neill! Keep lying, it's all you do! . . . Lies! . . . Which is not in John O'Neill's book, 'cause it's a lie! . . . That's a lie! It's another lie! That's a lie! Absolute lie! You lie in that book endlessly! . . . You lie about documents endlessly! . . . You're just lying about it! And you lied about Thurlow's Bronze Star! You lied about it as long as you could until the New York Times found the wording of what was on the citation that you as a lying writer refused to put in your pack of lies! . . . Disgusting, lying book! . . .

I just hate the lies of John O'Neill. I hate lies. It's not an argument; they're proven lies. . . . O'Neill's a liar, he's been a liar for 35 years about this, and he's found other liars [unintelligible]. . . . They lied! . . . They're lying somewhere! . . . Lies! Just tell me the initials, you liar! Creepy liar! . . . You are a liar who makes things up! . . . You want the lies! That's how you make your living, on lies!

Wow, we can sure see how Larry O'Donnell got his job as a senior political analyst with MSNBC. . .

Psychopathology 101

Projection: A mental mechanism seen in psychotics and sociopaths in which one's own personal character flaws and misbehaviors are falsely ascribed to another (innocent) person, the latter often then denounced for the projected supposed flaws.

Is Larry O'Donnell trying to accuse someone of lying??

On a separate issue, is Larry related to either Kelly or Rosie?

He did the same thing to someone else - Laura something -

I think he is doing it to make a "name" for himself - he may think it goes to what he is known for - a farce -


Not sure though - to me it is just stupid - but I guess that is what the media and the Socialist Democrats get off on - that type of behavior - the sewer mentality

Larry O'Donnell lost it when CBS got caught passing tips to the Kerry campaign about the Bush ANG story. He claimed it was common for reporters and politicos to pass stuff like that back and forth and he had done it many times.

Every other reporter and politico asked has said they not only have never done it, but never heard of it.

He is totally corrupt.

The Democratic Party must be one great big support group for psychotics & sociopaths throughout the nation.

Projection is their parties credo.

As much as I dislike Michael Savage, he is correct that extreme liberalism is a mental disease.

Can anyone think of any other memorable melt down moments like this one? My wife and I watched it live and just laughed at LO'D.

Yes, he seems incredulous that some people aren't voting for Kerry.

I concur, but I can't say it is a disease, it is more like a cult like single mindedness that has overcome all reasoning.

Kinda like the Tali-ban.

A case for deprogramming if I ever saw one.

I'm hoping that it is a cult more like Jim Jones'. After W is re-elected, they can move to another country and drink kool-aid.

Yes! Juan is a liberal, but the other day, he was rabid. They are afraid, apparently.

"he is correct that extreme liberalism is a mental disease."

I agree. Although that is only half of the story. One asks, HOW does it occur? It can be partly answered by the Cultural Marxism that is shoved down their throats in the education system. The Frankfurt School, Herbert Marcuse, Antonio Gramsci, etc...

Perhaps the other half is drugs? Clinton sure liked cocaine....

 Video of Lawrence O'Donnell Freakout on Scarborough Country Tonight
 LAWRENCE O'DONNELL AND LIBERALS UNHINGED
 Audio of the show is available here:
http://www2.swiftvets.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=14162
 Larry went berserk. That man was not only in a frenzy, he looked insane. He kept screaming liar, liar, but never disproved anything.  ... seriously over the top.
 O'Donnell was also screaming "Lesbian Sex...Mary Cheny's having Lesbian Sex!"
See the video HERE:

When Lawrence O’Donnell rants that John Kerry did not write the After Action Report posted on his web site because someone else initialed it, he is desperately trying to dupe us into believing something that is not true.

As an ex US Navy Radioman who served on a destroyer off the coast of Vietnam, I can speak with first-hand experience that the After Action Report posted on John Kerry’s web site came from a 35 KSR Teletype machine and the initials on that document almost certainly were those of the radiomen who were involved with either the transmission or reception of that message.

John Kerry was an officer and he simply would not ever have had anything to do with that particular document. In fact, he probably would have been long gone by the time it was even typed up on that TTY machine.

The only thing he might have ever signed or initialed would have been a hand-written original which he would have given to the radio room for transmission.

Also, when Lawrence O’Donnell claims to be a highly trained professional news analyst and he has not even bothered to find out information that even I know, I think I can do without his particular brand of “analysis”, thank you.

"Juan is a liberal, but the other day, he was rabid."

Don't you get it? The right way to construct this sentence is:

"Juan is a liberal AND the other day he was rabid."

Liberals are ALL rabid, under the skin. We are just seeing their true nature leak out around the edges, under pressure.
Trust me when I tell ya.

Pat Buchanan just apologized for what O'Donnell did on MSNBC. Said it was insulting and disrespectful. Said it would not happen again.

If O'Donnell would have been on while Buchanan was apologizing, I'll bet O'Donnell would have called Buchanan a liar for saying that O'Donnell was "sorry." I'm sure he isn't...
