MSNBC Defecates on Sarah Palin
The comments were vile, something one never or seldom, ever hears in a public broadcast. The question where was the copy control, editors, Bashir's superiors, why did nobody edit the copy? Maybe it was because they were ad hoc.
Bashir called Palin a “world-class idiot” and took issue with her comments that the United States could become enslaved to other countries that hold American debt. Why this statement ignited the commentator is mind boggling. Maybe Bashir did it for MSNBC ratings, maybe it just took it all wrong, but Palin was correct. China is the nation she referred to about holding much of the US debt in bonds and notes. They do it for investment returns but also, subtle economic control of American policy and should China begin to flex its muscle, such as, suddenly declaring a Chinese air zone over the disputed island in the South China sea claimed by both China and Japan, US reaction is rather muted. It will be muted until the US is forced to take a side (I suspect the US will side with Japan). Just wait until an aircraft is shot at or ship is seized.
Regardless, Palin is correct. Bashir, after calling her an idiot, they dropped the vile comments that went out across the air:
"Someone should defecate or urinate in Palin's mouth". Apparently, Bashir is overly sensitive to the word "slavery", OMG! Yes, the countries that hold the bulk of US debt can be looked upon as being slave owners and the US is enslaved. Since when is the word "slavery" to sensitive to use? Has the political correctness gone too far?
MSNBC seems to think so. When Alec Baldwin called a photographer a "fag" for not backing off on a public street, MSNBC terminated his TV show that just began. With Bashir, all that happened was an apology. I guess it shows just how far to the left on the political spectrum they are.
Bashir is a Despicable Me.
