    People talk a lot about Islamic extremism and ISIS/ISIL (the guys who behead Christians, among others), but what about Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army? "I don't remember people talking about that as much anymore, but that's a Christian militant group," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday. She was making the point that terrorism "is not just a threat in one place" -- and it's not just Islamic: "If you look at the Lord's Resistance Army and Kony, Joseph Kony -- I don't remember people talking about that as much anymore, but that's a...
  • 'Black holocaust denier Sarah Palin should eat her own crap'

    All I want for Christmas is for black holocaust deniers to eat the crap that comes out of their mouths, Sarah Palin for example. When the acclaimed journalist Martin Bashir was a sports reporter on "The Voice" newspaper 25 years ago, neither I nor any of his colleagues could have tipped him to be one of the most celebrated TV correspondents of his generation. In fact, he was a bit of a tasty geezer in those days with a broad cockney accent that belies his current clipped vowels. All that changed when a certain princess called up the Panorama programme...

    Conservative America just lost one of its talking points about left-leaning network MSNBC. For the past couple of weeks, the network’s critics have slammed it for a lack of accountability in l’affaire Martin Bashir, who on Nov. 15 made nasty comments suggesting how Sarah Palin, who had foolishly compared public debt to slavery, should be treated to a most horrific form of slave punishment: Defecation in mouth. In his next broadcast, Bashir apologized, but people wanted something more. Today they got it. Bashir has resigned from the network, an occasion marked, as always, by dueling releases of boilerplate. From Bashir:
  • Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC

    Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways.

    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...

    Governor Sarah Palin, on Saturday, November 9, 2013, compared the ever increasing national debt to slavery. Palin said: Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that money comes due - and this isn't racist, but it'll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master. What she said about the mounting national debt being a form of slavery is true, that the bill for all the borrowing will come due, that our children will have to do what foreign masters...

    Judging strictly by precedent at MSNBC, if Martin Bashir had called Sarah Palin a ‘c**ks**king fag,’ ‘right wing slut,’ ‘d*ck,’ ‘pimp,’ or ‘nappy headed ho,’ he would be on suspension, at the very least. Instead, Bashir is a free man. All he said about Palin on Nov. 15 was that she should be forced to have someone defecate in her mouth and urinate in her eyes as punishment for her remarks on slavery. What’s wrong with this picture? Plenty, if one considers MSNBC’s long history of Foot in Mouth disease. In every case, the commentator was either suspended or fired....

    On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Sarah Palin responded to the outrageous statements that MSNBC's Martin Bashir had made earlier this month during his program, during which he said that someone should "p*ss" and "s***" on Palin's face. Palin said:   Everybody in life takes shots. You have a decision to make when you take a shot. Are you going to become bitter or better? In a case like this, you  know, I don't have to accept his words - his vile, evil comments - so they don't have to affect me. I move on and I charge forth. ...

    On Thursday, a former U.S. Secret Service agent who is running for a House seat and has written a book about his life in the Service cancelled his prescheduled appearance on MSNBC's Bashir Live because of Martin Bashir's suggestion that someone should defecate and urinate in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's mouth. Dan Bongino, who was a Secret Service agent under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, told Breitbart News that his appearance to speak on Bashir's program about his book, Life Inside the Bubble, "was booked in advance of his unfortunate comments," and he could not in good faith appear...

    In a segment where BillO and Howard Kurtz were criticizing MSNBC for not punishing Martin Bashir, BillO took a moment to attack Sarah Palin for not coming on his show, saying she doesn’t want to mix it up with him, she just wants to give a speech: "Do you want to be frank, Howard? Sarah Palin won’t do this program. She won’t come on the program because she doesn’t want to mix it up. She just wants to give a speech; nobody gives speeches here. Okay? So she doesn’t come on.

    There’s a neat trick the Left has. When you do something stupid and vile, make it so stupid and vile that it makes people uncomfortable to even repeat what you’ve done in order to call you on it. Ted Kennedy is a perfect example. It’s so horrible to leave a woman to drown in a car you drunkenly wrecked while you stagger home to save your political career that even repeating the charge gives everyone an icky feeling. Opposition to born alive infant protection laws is another one. It’s so horrible to oppose a law that would require treatment for...

    MARTIN BASHIR: Last Friday, on this broadcast, I made some comments which were deeply offensive and directed at Governor Sarah Palin. I wanted to take this opportunity to say sorry to Mrs. Palin and to also offer an unreserved apology to her friends and family, her supporters, our viewers, and anyone who may have heard what I said. My words were wholly unacceptable. They were neither accurate, nor fair. They were unworthy of anyone who would claim to have an interest in politics, and they have brought shame upon my friends and colleagues at this network, none of whom were...

    MARK LEVIN: This guy -- what is his name? Martin Bashir -- if that is his name, Martin Bashir -- Friday closed his show with likely the most disgraceful rant against former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin you've ever heard. Hey tough guy, Martin Bashir, you like picking on women? You like picking on a mother and a grandmother? You a tough guy, pal? You strike me as not tough at all, if you get my drift. As a little puke, tough guy. Besides calling her America's resident dunce and claiming she has a deceased mind, Bashir suggested that someone should...
  • Martin Bashir: Ted Cruz is the ‘David Koresh of the Republican Party’

    During a panel discussion on MSNBC on Wednesday, host Martin Bashir and guests mocked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for misleading those who trusted him into a political dead end which also had the effect of reducing the Republican Party’s approval ratings. Bashir repeatedly linked Cruz to Branch Davidian sect leader David Koresh who perished after a federal raid on his facility in Waco, Texas. “Do you think Ted Cruz is a bit like the David Koresh of the Republican Party?” Bashir asked a visibly shaken BuzzFeed reporter, McKay Coppins. “He’s a bit like a character who believes himself to be...

    Sudanese authorities on Thursday deployed troops around vital installations and gas stations in the country's capital following days of rioting over gas price hikes that killed at least 30 people. The army also reinforced positions around military headquarters in Khartoum and along the city's university road, which is close to the presidential palace. The mood in the capital was tense and schools were closed as residents prepared for more potential violence and protests expected on Friday, particularly after worshippers flood out of mosques following weekly Islamic prayer. Violent protests erupted in Sudan on Monday when President Omar al-Bashir's government decided...
  • Visa request from Sudan's Bashir puts US in difficult situation

    The Obama administration remained mum Monday on whether it will grant a visa to accused war criminal and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who wants to address the U.N. General Assembly session in New York that begins this week. Bashir told reporters over the weekend that he's booked a New York City hotel and plans to fly into the United States via Morocco, following the State Department confirming last week that he has indeed applied for a visa. Bashir's wishes have put the U.S. government in a tricky and troubling situation. The Sudanese leader has been indicted by the International Criminal...

    Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, wanted by the International Criminal Court on genocide charges, said on Sunday he planned to attend this week's U.N. General Assembly and had already booked a hotel in New York. Washington has led calls for Bashir to face international justice over bloodshed in the now decade-old conflict in Sudan's Darfur region, and a senior State Department official said last week that Bashir would "not receive a warm welcome" if he traveled to New York.
