The dangerous propaganda from MSNBC

    Hate speech is not hate speech if the left uses it. And boy do they use it.

      VAWA does not protect people on reservations or illegal immigrants.  Thus she is characterizing it as saying 'it is okay to beat certain types of women'.

      I struggle to understand where you think the hate speech is.

      BTW they should pass the damned law. It's a good law. But that is a comment on the substance of the issue not pointless tit for tat--so I guess it's off topic.

        I am so sorry. I forgot the GOP are the hateful violent people this propaganda makes them out to be.
        My bad.

        If there is a law that protects i am all for it but the sweeping generalization that is typical of an MSNBC piece is starting to get out of hand.

          Where did they make one?

          All i saw is that they quoted what a politician said.  What politicians say is generally considered newsworthy but I saw no endorsement of it.

          And it is strongly stated but a law that protects only come women from domestic violence does make beating the others is less criminal (attracting less punishment). What she said is emotive, but accurate.

          I am beginning to think you adopt opinions from certain sources without fully understanding the underlying facts.  As if the facts are somehow irrelevant.

          And as a reminder I strongly support passing VAWA, so I am no fan of the woman being quoted.  I just don;t get how her comment is hate speech or where the new channel endorsed it.

            Her comment is hate speech because she targets one group and broad brushes them
            Apparently you agree if you can't see it.

              Like all your posts attacking liberals...?

              Not hate speech to mention what a politician said.

                I am so sorry I have forgotten once again what a hate ridden individual I am.
                I never cease to be amazed at the levels of this crap allowed so long as it comes from the approved direction.

                  You are the one who said targeting a group with broad strokes is hate speech.

                  Stil not hate speech.

                Would you like me to post up some video examples of violent hatefulness from MSNBC?

                  Sure.  It is customary to provide evidence for claims.  An you haven't yet.

              If a statement is basically true (provably) I don't see it as hate speech.  They are pushing to pass a law that does not protect all citizens equally.

              Hello Ms. Fae.

              Hate speech is targeting one group and broad brushing them.

              If you would like to see another example of targeting one group and broad brushing them, just re-read your own OP statement.

          Most liberals stopped watching Msnbc a while ago because their solution was to be Fox News in reverse. The difference is that we apply critical thinking and know when news is an editorial rather than fact-based investigative reporting, whereas a lot of Fox News viewers don't seem to realize it.

          Personally I go to the BBC and a few other sober foreign news services to find out what's really going on.

            Yes, but my point is a lot don't and actually believe what was said about the GOP.
            Now i am not GOP and that isn't the point. The point is there are people who believe anything they are told on TV and MSNBC just let's it fly.

    Again, one person's opinion does not represent an entire group or corporation.

      Then someone at MSNBC should actually pulls his/her pants up and be an adult and stop allowing these sorts of generalizations. Period.

        I'd be in favor of that if Fox did the same thing.

        Whatever, I don't watch either network so I guess I can't make an informed opinion.
