All of us together would go down to Washington and we would stone him to death! (Not Rush Limbaugh)
Media Research ^ | 1999 | MRC

Posted on 11/21/2002 7:38:19 AM PST by Registered

 

Serious political commentary that should be condemned, or a humorous skit? As reports circulating the Internet have asserted, on Friday’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien on NBC actor Alec Baldwin jumped from his chair to scream "We would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and we’d kill their wives and their children!"

     Baldwin is a well-known defender of Clinton who held a fundraiser for him last summer at his Long Island home. Monday night on CNBC’s Upfront Tonight he charged that "the ultimate goal" of impeachment advocates "is what I would call ‘election nullification’" as "this is a group of people who want to undo the ‘96 election."

     On the December 11, 1999 NBC show host Conan O’Brien wrapped up his interview with Baldwin by asking Baldwin about Clinton’s plight. Baldwin answers but as he proceeds his voice rises as he jumps up from his chair and is screaming and flailing his arms by the time he’s finished. Cutting to the punch line, O’Brien then jumps up and puts an air mask over Baldwin’s mouth to calm him down. Funny political satire or, even if meant in jest, mean-spirited and violence-inciting words that would be condemned if uttered by a conservative?

Baldwin's outburst

     Here’s the exchange as transcribed by MRC news analyst Paul Smith.


    
Conan O’Brien: "Before we leave, I gotta ask you. It’s no secret that you are very political. You are a very political person. It’s no secret that you have actually had some associations with the Clintons. That you’re a liberal man and I thought you know today, this is a historic day and you’re one of the most politically active actors out there. What do you think?"
    
Alec Baldwin: "I was in Africa. I go to Africa. I mean ladies and gentlemen I am in Africa. For three months I am in the bush and I come back. I come back here and I come back to what? I mean what is happening right now as we speak? Right now the Judiciary Committee, the President has an approval rating of 68 percent. The President is very popular and things are going pretty good and they are voting to impeach the President. They voted on one article of impeachment already. And I come back from Africa to stained dresses and cigars and this and impeachment. I am thinking to myself in other countries they are laughing at us twenty four hours a day and I’m thinking to myself if we were in other countries, we would all right now, all of us together, [starts to shout] all of us together would go down to Washington and we would stone Henry Hyde to death! We would stone him to death! [crowd cheers] Wait! Shut up! Shut up! No shut up! I’m not finished. We would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and we’d kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families. [stands up screaming] What is happening in this country? What is happening? UGHHH UGHHH!!!!"

     Now, in your mind substitute the name Al Gore or Hillary Clinton for Henry Hyde and the name of a conservative for Baldwin. What kind of reaction would the media establishment be expressing?

     To see this exchange, go to the MRC home page where MRC Webmaster Sean Henry has posted a RealPlayer clip of what is transcribed above. Unfortunately, we taped the show on a bad VCR so, Sean reports, the sound level is rather low but if you turn your volume way up you should be able to hear it. After all, Baldwin is yelling. --Brent Baker

And what was Daschle's response to this call to murder a Congressman and his family? I'm still searching....

By the way, that reminds me, does anyone have a link to the thread describing CBS Craig Kilborn's threat to Sniper kill President Bush?

Don't have the link you've asked for. What about the DNC's ad during the 2000 presidential election where the woman said then Governor Bush's refusal to sign into law a hate crime bill was like having her father killed all over again. The DNC sponsored commercial showed a black man being dragged behind a car in chains. It was the most hateful commercial I've ever seen.

See if you find Daschle's response to this while you are searching.

Pacifica Radio talk show host Julianne Malveaux on Justice Thomas:
"The man is on the Court. You know, I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. Well, that’s how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person."

Ya think Clarence Thomas ever got any hate mail over the fit the Dems threw over his appointment to the Supreme Court?

CBS - SNIPER KILLING BUSH ** REALPLAYER FILE ** THE EVIDENCE ** Craig Kilborn on the Late, Late Show

Politically Incorrect's 'Harris Murder' Joke a Firing Offense? "Now earlier today, a rental truck carried a half a million ballots from Palm Beach to the Florida Supreme Court there in Tallahassee," began Maher - - Maher's job may not be in jeopardy just yet. But some may recall what happened to a fellow ABC on-air personality a few years back, when he joked about the death of another a high profile political figure. - - On April 3, 1996, New York City's reigning talk radio star Bob Grant was hosting his WABC afternoon show when the plane carrying Clinton Commerce Secretary Ron Brown went down in Croatia. Before Brown's death had been confirmed, the anti-Clinton conservative heard a report that a lone, unidentified passenger had survived the crash. - - But a week later, Jesse Jackson and Mario Cuomo started complaining -- both in public and behind the scenes to ABC honchos. Overnight, editorials began to appear declaring that Grant had "publicly wished for Ron Brown's death." - - A week after that, the talk radio icon was toast, fired for a remark that hardly anyone had noticed when he made it. (Grant was rehired by the WOR radio network three weeks later, where he now broadcasts five afternoons a week coast-to-coast.)

I have this file. Better save it--it takes 99K to run and I am not sure my web (onebigvillage) will run it for long.

Not to defend Alec Baldwin, but simply on the side of reading comprehension, he said that in other countries adulterers, such as Henry Hyde, are stoned to death. Not that he wanted to do that, or that anyone should do that, but that it is done in some countries in Africa, where he had just spent time.

Yep. Balwin dissed Africans, all right.

Baldwin's actual words (after mentioning several times that he is just back from Africa ("the bush"))

I’m thinking to myself if we were in other countries, we would all right now, all of us together, [starts to shout] all of us together would go down to Washington and we would stone Henry Hyde to death! We would stone him to death! [crowd cheers] Wait! Shut up! Shut up! No shut up! I’m not finished. We would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and we’d kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families.
I'll bet the dems would have called anyone else a racist for saying that Africans stone whole families to death for the actions of one member of the family. I'll bet a number of Black Americans saw the inherent racism in Baldwin's tirade.

Would the Africans have stoned Henry Hyde and his family? I doubt it. Baldwin lied from the get-go.

yes. contact your local democrat party and ask for the agit-prop department. (hold the telephone receiver in your left hand and close your right eye.) wait for the tone, leave message. make sure you speak through the left side of your mouth.

Gee, I wonder why Baldwin didn't tell a story in which adulterers like Clinton, FDR, or JFK (and their families, of course) would be stoned?

I wonder how Hillary, Jackie O, and Eleanor Roosevelt would have liked the idea of American people cheering their children being stoned.

Depends on what part of Africa and if the Wahabists have gotten to them yet or not.

Since when does one speak of Henry Hyde in the plural? He's a big guy, but not big enough to be spoken of in the plural.

Baldwin compares and contrasts US citizens and African citizens. Does he really make it clear which nationality's justice system he prefers?

It sounds to me like Alec actually liked the general idea of stoning people to death, even children and non-adulterous adults. It sounds like he wanted to stone lots of people in Washington (maybe everybody who voted for impeachment and their families?)

Do Wahabists stone relatives of adulterers who are not, themselves, adulterers? Do they stone the innocent neighbors, too?

I don't see that your "explanation" of Baldwin's
remarks softens them at all. They are still more "mean
spirited than anything Mr. Daschle has referred to as
coming from the "Right". BTW, who is Balwin (or any of
his Hollyweird crowd)to call anyone an "adulterer"???

I think he was making reference to the Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee.

What you say sounds correct to me. The Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee (and their families) were probably the targets Baldwin was referring to.

I keep re-reading the transcript and still can't find the part where Baldwin says Hyde (and everyone else) would be stoned to death because of Hyde's adulterous behavior.

Everyone around here always takes this statement out of context, and here it is in it's entirety and it's still being taken out of context. Not to defend Alec Baldwin, but simply on the side of reading comprehension, he said that in other countries adulterers, such as Henry Hyde, are stoned to death. Not that he wanted to do that, or that anyone should do that, but that it is done in some countries in Africa, where he had just spent time. Sheesh.

Are you on crack????

Find the word "adulterer" in Baldwin's tirade!

The whole tirade is not printed in the article, but the subejct of the conversation was the fact that Henry Hyde was leading an investigation into Clinton and Lewinsky, while he had had his own adulterous affair. Baldwin was saying that in some countries, adulterers are stoned to death.

I will presume you are simply ignorant, and won't accuse you of lying. To bring you up to speed, here is a link to a RealPlayer video of Alec's rant. You will find it is perfectly transcribed by the Media Research Center.

After you get through watching, click here for some crow recipes. Bon Appetit.

Are you trying to argue that Henry Hyde did not have an adulterous affair, and that Baldwin was not talking about Hyde's hyprocrisy in the Clinton/Lewinsky affair?

I am not "trying to argue." I am giving you the facts. YOU are "trying to argue"!

As Judge Judy would say, close your mouth for a second and try to receive:

Re: "People who think that Clinton was impeached solely because he had an affair are . . yadda yadda blah yadda blah"

What Clinton did in our house was indefensible on every level, but there's a lesson in history.

When Nixon (a President who's party was the GOP) was also caught doing things that were indefensible not long ago. There was one man, the head of the GOP at the time, who informed Nixon that the rest of the GOP was not going to defend the indefensible, and he could not count on their support (That man, by the way, was none other than George Bush Senior). Thankfully Nixon stepped down and never did put the country through the painfull process for his own ambitions to power.

Defending the indefensible was not anything for any respectable Conservative to do.

When Clinton was caught doing things that were indefensible the DNC leadership not only decided to defend the indefensible, but took of on a year long tyrate in the media, in the courts, and in the homes of every American man, woman and child in a crusade to convince people that their party stood for the very worst as long as they wielded power. (That mans name ? Terry Macauluf(sp?)

THIS is the fundemental lesson of impeachment.

Both parties will have Presidents that perform indefensible acts in the future, but it's how that party reacts that is crucial. Todays DNC has failed to realise this and it's one of the many the reasons the good people of this great country delivered the GOP a tri-fecta in 2000 and 2002, and aalso the reason that that the DNC will not advance untill the last Clinton cronie has been purged.

Baldwin was saying that

in some countries, adulterers are stoned to death


I disagree.

Baldwin was saying that

if we were in an African country, we would (go down to Washington and) stone whole families to death.

We can disagree on why the whole families would be wiped out, but there is no getting around Baldwin's expression of satisfaction at the thought of innocent people being brutally killed.

I'm glad he doesn't hold public office. He sure is good at quickly getting his listeners worked up.

The audience certainly seemed to have grasped what Baldwin implied.

Precisely! And this thread is about 'how what public figures say causes some kooks to want to act out the inflamed emotions.' Regardless of the despotic democrat apologists, Daschle opened his stupid mouth and inserted the democrat foul foot ... and Balwin, the dragging ad, and the black churches burning ARE democrat techniques for incitring emotional responses. The sniper comments and posters are merely honest representations of what the despotic democrats want to happen, raw honest expression of their hate-filled hearts. [Any political party that ardently defends the indefensible --partial birth infanticide--- is capable of any degree of hate campaign. I see this entire Daschle and media support for same as an orchestrated strategery to turn off as many as possible in preparation for the partial birth abortion debates coming soon to a network near all of us.]

My point is that Baldwin was NOT calling for Henry Hyde to be stoned to death, as everyone likes to pretend. And people who believe that are either gullible, ignorant or just plain stupid.

The audience seemed to get Baldwin's point.
Baldwin had the audience cheering at the mental image of stoning a human being (or stoning a whole families of human beings).
At the bare minimum, Baldwin showed he had an extreme need for very intensive sensitivity training.
They do provide sensitivity training where he works, right?

I know this is a late post but Daschle and his cronies are looking for radio stations to compete with those like Rush..they could see an advantage in keeping this site alive with $$$$$$$'s..and make it even more tailored to their Lies. Salon has a knack for fund raising and I bet they have been in contact with the Democrats. Just a guess but if I were running the show would be one place I would shop for dollars.
