Barnicle Calls Palin a 'Moron'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 03/10/2014 5:21:05 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Here was the Morning Joe panel bemoaning Ted Cruz's supposed incivility at CPAC in allegedly insulting war hero Bob Dole, when up pops Mike Barnicle to ask "what does it say about CPAC, where the most popular speaker they had and received the most rousing reception is a moron, Sarah Palin?"

A bit later, Mika Brzezinski piled on, calling Palin a "multi-million dollar moron." When Joe Scarborough challenged her, saying "you don't think that, right?", Mika didn't retract her slur, saying only that Palin is "savvy in selling a message that makes a lot of money."

So much for tolerance. Represent an opposing viewpoint and liberals will resort to the vilest and most unfounded attacks. It is in their nature to be mean, personal, and insulting. They preach tolerance and diversity, the rampantly label everyone and keep a scorecard. They may not have invented ad-hominem attacks, but they’re working on perfecting them.

This is one of the most tiresome and egregious democrat talking points - that their opposition are all stupid. Palin was right about the Ukraine, but she's stupid. She was right about ‘death panels’, but she's stupid. There are many more examples. The bottom line is that the left has specific criteria for ‘being smart’. It includes going to specific schools, espousing specific accepted beliefs, and speaking in a specific - often slowly annunciated - manner (think Al Gore, Obama, etc.). It's a specific package of beliefs and behaviors, and they really demand uniformity.

That they actually limit their thoughts and assessments on the basis of these specific criteria is pathetic, and most definitely not in line with being ‘smart’.

Sounds like more libtard projection, IMO.

When they don’t have a counter-argument, they resort to their ‘hole cards’...name calling, race baiting, and imagined slights and wrongs.

It’s a bit of fun in the morning to watch the dhimmicrap heads spinning.

Barnicle is an admitted serial plagiarist, and Mika is a slut who used her daddy’s connections and the casting cast to get her job.

The next intelligent thing Marx Barnicle says will be his first. As for Mika, talk about a million dollar set of perky breasts.

I bet 99% of democrats(politicians and voters) didn’t even know what Ukraine was nor could they point to it on a map. yet these same democrats say Sarah Palin is dumb as a rock when Sarah Palin in 2008 predicted Putin would invade Ukraine.

a democrat: “uh duh , Ukraine what is that duh? oh yeah the news media says Sarah palin is dumb so she’s dumb yeah”

It is in their nature to be mean, personal, and insulting.

...y’know, it’s interesting how that is...you wouldn’t expect to see such loutish behavior on a panel discussion, which purportedly seeks higher ethical ground to mine...it’s one thing for an individual bomb-thrower to be invited to the panel and spout off (Ann Coulter, for one), but the panel itself is supposed to be above the fray, however much they create it...but this bunch, and the lefty on the Five, Bob Beckel, drop the gloves and go right down into the gutter and start with the insults...

...I realize the fetid nature of politics, and its germ infested ecology, but to pull back and regard the hatred political discourse generates is quite remarkable...really, not worth the investiture in truculence, life is too short to waste just to get off a nasty comment or two...

Palin 2008: Putin will invade Ukraine under Obama’s watch.
Media 2008: Palin is a moron.

Putin invades Ukraine in 2014 under Obama’s watch.

Media 2014: Palin is a moron.

They can’t debate the facts. So mock, smear. Its liberalism 101.

all that democrats know is that government will take care of everything even the global warming hoax. democrats are little cry babies that cry out for government and politicians to take care of them

And they wonder where ‘civil discourse’ went.

Another Obama acolyte spews his hate.

Obama Calls for a New Era of Civility in U.S. Politics

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do,” he said, “it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

In all fairness, he said that when he was just trying to gin up support for gun control by blaming Sarah Palin for Gabby Giffords being shot in the face by a brain damaged, Marxist kook who was being protected by a leftist Sheriff. The ends justifies the means with Marxists, even if they have to twist facts 180 degrees out of phase with reality.

He didn’t really mean it.

The Democraps still deny there will be death panels. A death panel by any other name wouldst smell as foul.

Questions for the left. When you wake up in the morning and have to fight the problems of the day, what does Sarah Palin to to make them worse? How much does she have to do with rising unemployment, cost of living, health care, war, and so on? Why aren’t you giving the same effort you expend on bashing Palin to the people who’s responsibilities are solving these issues? They are in charge and get paid plenty to do it. She doesn’t run anything.

Mike, Joe Biden is Vice President. And Barack Obama freely and voluntarily selected him. Given those two facts, if I were a liberal, I think I’d be extremely careful about calling any conservative politician a moron, let alone Sarah Palin.

Paparazzi selfies like that are the Left’s way of looking chic and intelligent.

I’ve seen Scarborough’s book on the way marked down discount bin. It is double spaced, has more blank spaces than words, and makes Green Eggs and Ham read like War and Peace.
