MSNBC's Michael Eric Dyson: Republicans 'Watch More Porn and Go to More Strip Clubs'
NewsBusters.org ^ | September 17, 2012 | Noel Sheppard

MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson made a comment on the Martin Bashir show Monday that left the Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart totally speechless.

Talking about Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's position on abortion and marriage, Dyson said, "He needs to speak to his fellow Republicans whose numbers ain’t so hot in that regard, and who watch more porn and go to more strip clubs than other people" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

MSNBC's Michael Eric Dyson: Republicans 'Watch More Porn and Go to More Strip Clubs'

MICHAEL ERIC DYSON: I mean, my God, it’s incredible here. Again, you’ve got to demonize your enemy. You’ve got to portray him or her as the person who’s going to attack the institution of marriage, attack the unborn, not be sensitive to the issues that conservatives are sensitive to. Why can’t we just all be Americans, and we honestly disagree about issues, policies, projects, and problems? But no, you’ve got to go to the heart of the matter. You’ve got to say, “This person is morally corrupt. This person is incapable ethically of running a campaign that is upstanding.

And I think this is the difference between President Obama and Mitt Romney and Ryan. Obama says, “Look, there are good Americans. I happen to disagree with them. I think their policies are going to dead-end to a way that will take this country in a wrong direction. But I’m not going to demonize them.” Mitt Romney desperately pulling at straws here wants to suggest that this president wants to take away your life, your livelihood, wreck your institution of marriage.

He needs to speak to his fellow Republicans whose numbers ain’t so hot in that regard, and who watch more porn and go to more strip clubs than other people would…

At that moment, likely realizing his guest was jumping the shark, Bashir interrupted saying, “Okay, enough of that.”

As this was happening, Capehart on a split-screen was visibly shocked by what Dyson said, and was left speechless - so much so that when Bashir asked, “Jonathan, a final word to you, please, to bring it back to the sane universe,” Capehart laughed without being able to respond.

With that, Bashir thanked them both, and went to commercial.

And this is the intellectual discussion you get about the differences between Romney’s positions and those of President Obama on this farce of a so-called "news network."

Readers are advised that Dyson is not only a frequent contributor to MSNBC, he has also acted as substitute host for many of its regulars.

Pretty scary, isn't it?

So that means they like looking at the ladies instead of guys in bath houses and little boys?

I yield to Michael Eric Dyson, and his encyclopedic first-hand knowledge of strip clubs, pornography, and all connoisseurs of same.

Apparently it's not true- the strip clubs down here in Tampa were all upset because after going through all the trouble of getting elephant-themed bar knapkins and making drink recipes with conservative sounding names, they had no uptick in business. If anything it went down.

Their hopeful efforts were all the news before the convention - which I thought was rather odd- and then, when they didn't get the expected bump the stories of Republicans partying hard like Democrats kind of died.

I think the only folks who saw a boost were the hotels and the cigar shops.

Emmerse yourself in the irony!!!

Obama, and by proxy the democrats, don’t like to label, don’t demonize, don’t call names and say outrageous untruthful things about their political opponents, totally UNLIKE those Republicans who watch more porno and go to more strip clubs!!!

Well, he just makes his own case now, don’t he?

Republicans may not always practice what is good as opposed to what is not, but at least the know the difference. No need to accept judgments of people who consider the Constitution and biblical texts ot be “living, breathing documents.” They will forever be servile, while we have the Truth to set us free.

That’s just because strip clubs cost money and strippers don’t take food stamps.

Obama says we're all bitter clingers.

Republicans watch capitalist porn. When I worked in the financial district the most popular porn video was Wanda Does Wall Street. Wanda’s assets definitely were not toxic.

" Republicans 'Watch More Porn and Go to More Strip Clubs'"

Fact: Democrats just fornicate without compunction and murder the results without mercy.

I find it hard to believe that the conservative, church-going group is more likely to go to strip clubs and watch porn than pot smoking liberals that want free handouts. Doesn’t make sense to me. Probably just another smear campaign by the AntiChrist in Chief against the right again. Another lie. Again.

This is a psychological disorder, called projection, that is characteristic of liberals. One projects their own undesirable thoughts, motivations, desires, and feelings onto others while exaggerating and fixating on them. Such behavior is associated with Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) and Psychopathy. It fits into the pattern that liberalism is a mental disease.

I don't recognize the Obama he is defining here; the Obama I have observed the last four years is a polar opposite to the one Dyson describes. That this ass - or shill or race-baiter - is on the faculty of Georgetown just boggles the mind.
