First thing that jumps out at me is only the a liberal news mag could call this RINO a "conservative". Second thing I thought about as I was reading his conversion to full-fledged liberal, is the way this RINO hack savaged Sarah Palin from the minute she came on the scene in 2008, even writing op-ed pieces calling on fellow RINOs to put her in her place. It was then and there I started despising former republican. Every time I see him now I want to put my fist in his smirking mouth.

Hey, Joe, put a big sign in the front yard of your home stating that you oppose guns and that you have none in your home.

No, come to think of it, “RINO” should refer to conservative republicans since liberal republicans are now the rule, not the exception.

He’s vile!

I’ll repeat again Don Imus’ remark after Joe and Mika were fired from WABC Radio. Imus said that Human Resources had been loaded with complaints about Joe since he had come to work there. He did not explain and he never said it again but I’ve never forgotten it.

I am truly amazed at how many people are chasing the red herring of gun control when the real elephant in the room is mental health treatment.

It’s his MSNBC and the rest of the media that causes these mass shootings.

The media know they are egging on the next star,promising them fame and immortality if they will just try to top or match the current mass shooter.

The mainstream media causes these shootings.

These idiots or psychos shoot people for the fame the media will give them.

The media makes these shooters household names.

Conservative Joe Scarborough

There's another Joe Scarborough?

A Conservative one somewhere?

The only one I know is a backstabbing RINO beltway insider, for as long as I can remember.

Joe, we were all shaken and wrenched by the unspeakable murder of innocents. But, Joe, your reaction is shallow and base. If there were no guns in the world that may not have happened. But, Joe, guns have been in the world for hundreds of years. Crime is lower when the law abiding citizenry are allowed and encouraged to carry guns. Where is your common sense?

What about concerns about severe acts of violence as side effects of mind altering pharmaceutical drugs, anti-psychotic and antidepressant drugs?

What about the permanent and negative neurological changes to the brain of young people as related to violent movies and violent video games? Is neuroscience too much for you to understand?

What about the loss of God in schools? Exactly what is wrong with posting the Ten Commandments in schools, so children can see every day the Commandment "Thou shalt not murder?"

It is too easy to blame guns and avoid the real causes of violence in this country, ehh? Are you an intellectual, or just another follower of the popular culture, especially the mindless, hysterical anti-gun group? Your words say it all.

Banning guns will not curtail violence. Spirits (demons) of hate, murder and anarchy have been set loose in this nation.

That boy had engulfed himself in darkness, and the voices that he listened told him to kill.

Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is the answer to America’s problems.

The only thing you need to know about Joe is he wants to sleep with Mika.

Too many leading with emotions and the need to be in step with the liberal agenda. Oh wait, they’re calling themselves “progressives”. I call them socialists.

It’s al all out attack on conservatives and an easier target than the mental health elephant in the room.

Thanks so much for the link! I was wrong that the complaints came from WABC employees - the complaints came from WNBC employees.

I’ve been looking for that link in over a year now - and you found it!

Has a dead woman ever been found your office.

Not mine and I bet no other Freeper has.

Ole Joe has but never mind, Joe says he doesn't know anything about that.

Libertarian Joe is a social liberal. That is where they want total control over what you say, beleive and do. That involves the central social cause of overcoming the individual rights of the constitution so they can create the perfect socialist man.

Knowing libertarians, how shocking is this? Not at all. They are a mile wide and one inch deep.

Journalism has degenerated to this point. Some sap at the NY DAILY NEWS thinks Scarborough “stunned” anyone with a liberal diatribe.

Ignorance abounds.

Well, if gun grabbing Joe thinks it ought to be a law, he should run for office again.
