MSNBC, America's closest approximation yet to Pravda (though not for lacking of trying, New York Times), did something curious but characteristic Wednesday night during the hour-long hyperventilation known as "The Ed Show." (video after page break)
The show's namesake, Ed Schultz, was talking with Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne, who benefits from his appearances with Schultz by looking sane by comparison.
Earlier in the program, Schultz could barely contain his anger over a photo showing Republican Gov. Jan Brewer pointing a finger toward President Obama's face and appearing to exchange words with him after the president's arrival in Arizona that day.
By the time Dionne came on the show, the subject matter was Obama's phone-it-in State of the Union address, but MSNBC provided an outlet for its viewers' venom toward Brewer by showing their Twitter tweets at the bottom of the screen. Presumably this entailed someone at MSNBC, maybe even more than one adult, screening the tweets before they were aired.
Here's a tweet that appeared while Schultz was talking with Dionne --
Next time Jan Brewer sticks her finger in President's face, the Secret Service should break it & drop her. #edshow #p2
Stephanie Miller, apparently following "chaplinlives" on Twitter, echoed the sentiment on her radio show as described by NewsBuster Tim Graham. If Brewer pointed her finger at Lyndon Johnson, Miller gushed, Johnson "would have broken that off and shoved it up your bleep."
Yes, the same LBJ once condemned by the left for killing babies in Vietnam now hailed as a model for inflicting pain on political opponents. And what a shock to learn last fall that Jackie Kennedy suspected Johnson of involvement in her husband's murder. Bone crusher, indeed.
It was just a few years ago that left wingers were in full lather over the specter of captured terrorists subjected to physical discomfort, their beauty sleep interrupted, constitutional right to satellite TV denied, all to prevent the slaughter of thousands -- more -- Americans. Such abuse of unrepentant jihadists was tantamount to war crimes, leftists alleged, while stamping their feet for show trials of Bush-era hooligans.
Now when a Republican governor is guilty of insufficient reverence toward Obama, liberals spew the type of bile you'd expect from a crime boss's lackeys after a few too many stingers.
Not that we should be surprised by this. Much the same impulse animated an earlier version of national socialism.
they can try to break my middle finger
I extend a finger to Obama on a frequent basis
I have some co-workers who won’t talk to me and consider me to be a first-class jerk because I don’t like Obama and think he’s the worst president in US history, and these are Canadians. I don’t just think it might get nasty there, this has potential to spill over.
A liberal will first try to provoke you into violence; if that does not work, they will suckerpunch you.
Simple, just tell them to "F*** off, eh".
They’re trying to foment Civil War, but the left is vastly underestimating how things would unfold.
Apparently Ed is intimidated by a petite older woman, and feels that her pointing a finger is some kind of serious threat.
What a loser.
I usually don’t even be slightly rude to them, and I think that drives them further over the brink heh. Obviously, if push came to shove, this 10 year 2PPCLI vet would open a can of annihilation heh.
I just honestly wish Canadians would open their eyes, but I don’t see it happening, so I’m hoping my southern neighbors can pull of a victory for freedom, then I will relocate someplace where the women are conservative and where I can carry around my guns without being hassled.
The Twink in chief cannot handle a 67 year old petite woman.
Another plus in the Jan Brewer column. Barry has acted stupidly, Jaun Mcpain calls for a beer summit, Jessie Jackson says it’s racist, the media wants homage, CAIR wants her in a burka, and Rev Wright says G_d damn Arizona.
They will try to hire someone to go suckerpunch you,actually.
I can understand MSNBC saying this because that’s how they would have handled it in the old Third Reich or Soviet Union.
Who else had more to gain?
“and these are Canadians.”
Obama has been great for Canadian consumers; they actually come to our side of the border to shop, now that our dollar has been devalued so much. I’m not surprised that Canadians, like the Red Chinese, would be Obama supporters for economic reasons alone (though Red China will suffer for its currency relationship to us).
Don’t kid yourself. The people go loathe our military when it comes to national defense, would be quite willing to use it against you and I.
They can threaten all they want. Americans are not bowing to any President or politican and surely not communists. Lefties have always threatened uppity whities or off the reservation minorities, in racial terms, when they got power.
When Reagan came in, they were holding business and government hostage with unions, hippy protests, and race riots. The GOP was licking their toes. I remember what Reagan did with them. They were out of commission for a long time.
“Special” Ed (”Sgt.”) Schultz shot and killed his own dog, by mistake. What’a DUmmy.
Just sad that most Canadians don’t see past the facade, and the bigger picture. They’ll believe anything they see on the ABC networks.
