MSNBC's Martin Bashir 'on vacation' after Sarah Palin remarks
Politico ^ | December 2, 2013 | Dylan Byers

Posted on 12/02/2013 1:47:35 PM PST by Zakeet

Martin Bashir, the MSNBC host who has come under fire for the controversial remarks he made about Sarah Palin, is "on vacation" and will not host his namesake afternoon program on Monday, POLITICO has learned.

Sources at the network said Bashir had been temporarily suspended from the network following graphic remarks he made last month about the former governor from Alaska. In that segment, Bashir suggested that Palin should be forced to endure slavery like conditions, including the consumption of feces.

MSNBC spokesperson Lauren Skowronski told a different story: "He’s still out on vacation," she wrote in an email. Asked multiple times when Bashir would return from vacation, Skowronski did not respond.

Typical left-wing tactic: make the “offender” unavailable (vacation, on assignment, etc.) until things die down/blow over, then respond to any info requests with, “That’s old news. It’s time to move on.”

“Controversial” does not BEGIN to describe the filth that poured from the creep’s verbal orifice.

Every now and then you see the true face of liberalism, and even liberals are shocked by it. It’s when they get real power, like in the Soviet Union, that liberalism/communism drives them to do things you would have never thought possible for human beings.

Palin “encroached” on the left’s biggest cudgel - slavery.

MSNBC spokesperson Lauren Skowronski told a different story: "He’s still out on vacation," she wrote in an email.

But in the meantime, under an hour ago- on Fox News there was a Live interview with NTSB officials about the very sad Metro-North train accident. So, instead of having comments from Martin Bashir now, we get the democrats shrewdly sending up fecal mouth chuckie schumer to the podium with the NTSB officials.

Actually, the accident occurred in (or at least close to) the area schumer pretends to represent, so there's some reasonable excuse for his presence.

However, that many cameras in operation should be expected to attract that particular sorry specimen like a pile of merde draws maggots.

If any conservative at FOXNews had said the same he would be out of a job - probably forever. Hate for liberals is as common as the air they breath...

I wonder if the Comcast board ordered his timeout. Hell, the board should give the entire network a timeout.

Agree. It's probably an 'all expenses paid' vacation - - they're all haters at that network.

As a US Senator, doesn’t he “represent” the whole state of New York? He’s not a Congressman with a district.

He’s a US Senator. He represents the entire state.

I don’t particularly want to hear Joe Donnelly or Dan Coats opinions on an Indiana traffic accident.

Bashir's language is typical of Obama and his downlow culture.

Human excrement is glorious to the kind of human Obama is introducing as the new Man.

If dwelling with feces is slave-like, then how do any of those leftist folks justify their claims that the gay bath-house “lifestyle” is freedom?

He’s probably “on vacation” trying to think of ways to spend his secret bonus from MSNBC for the Palin remarks.

I doubt it. Hatred like this guarantees him a job and popularity with the left. They fight to win and we fight for civility.

I was hoping that the tootsie roll could be analogous to something he wanted to put in Sarah’s mouth, and he would be wiping his eyes due to a certain liquid that he wanted in Sarah’s eyes.

I always wait for the 'to spend more time with my family' excuse.
