Skip to comments.MSNBC: Opposing Obama’s Olympic Push “Rivals Jane Fonda Sitting on a Gun in North Vietnam”

In the misty past of ten months ago, dissent was patriotic, mass protests were a sign of passionate civic engagement, and the greatest sin any politician could commit was questioning someone’s patriotism. But that was America, B.B.O. (Before Barack Obama). Now dissent is potential incitement, middle American protesters are Swastika-carrying yokels, and disagreeing with a president’s decision to put his hometown above the well-being of troops in Afghanistan demonstrates a “lack of patriotism.”
On Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” Ed Schultz blamed Chicago’s first-round rejection, not on Rio or behind-the-scenes maneuvering, but on American conservatives who questioned whether Obama ought to spend more time finalizing his Afghanistan strategy — incredibly saying their actions were comparable to Jane Fonda’s in Vietnam.
He began by blaming the loss, not on Obama’s failed full court press, but on Republicans….

So much for the left loving Hanoi Jane. LOL
Is it any wonder no one watches this crap?
Not the Olympics coming to the US.
Actually, the painful decision-making process for picking a dog, the drop-everything-and-pander-to-the-IOC, the get-away dates with Michelle-Omarosa to NYC, all the while the big red phone from his generals is rolling to voicemail - It sure makes an good image for Barry himself sitting in Jane’s NV gun-battery seat. This is what happens when a dangerously inexperienced left-winger is elected, gets in way over his head, and gets all wee-weed up. He starts acting stupidly.
We get Ed Schultz on AFN over here. I accidentally came across him on the dial last night and within two minutes I had to turn him off - I thought my head was gonna explode!
That station is an embarrassment to the human race.
Perhaps Ed has an opinion regarding Obama’s persistant bashing of America every time he has an international audiance?
Perhaps Ed is unaware of the Constitutional priorities of the President? Afghanistan, Iran, unemployment....
How can Obama bash America and then have the ego to believe his priority should be to “charm” the IOC into handing Chicacgo the Olympics?
Conservatives are cheering the smackdown of his ego and his misplaced priorities.
Michelle couldn’t sit on a tank, she’d break it!
Talk about a good SNL skit...video of BO and wifey going out and flying all over the place and a split screen of a general on the phone hearing voice mail...funny if not so serious
Brilliant analogy, SERKIT. That would make a devastating TV ad -- I could see it going viral in a flash. In the meantime, Rush and Shanklin could do it on audio. Good show!
“Opposing Obamas Olympic Push Rivals Jane Fonda Sitting on a Gun in North Vietnam”
Two entirely different things. How idiotic for MSNBC.
MSNBC Ed Shulz, Maddow and Olbermann been on this theme daily with “Republicans hate America” and “Conservatives Hate America” .
It’s a pretty entertaining attempt to co-opt talking points. Still their viewership is tiny (and not all are followers)
Yea. Up until now that was never expressed in the media as a “Bad” thing.
Wait a second. I thought the left loved the fact that Jane Fonda “stood up to the man” and supported our enemies during a time of war. Is the left speaking in support of us being against the Olympics going to Chicago? :)
It’s not going to be possible to tag “republicans” or “conservatives” as opposing American values.
Leftists hate American values, and they revel in that position.
