This probably doesn't deserve it's own thread, but I'm really irritated about his removal from MSNBC over Sarah Palin. What he said was wrong, but placing everything in context, it IS Sarah Palin... She compared the nation's debt to slavery for Pete's sake.. I think she hit a level so low that any reasonable person automatically dismisses anything she says, hence allowing her to continue to say such nonsense. Yet, allow a credible person to make one slip of the tongue and you're gone. It has happened over and over again, it's about time people live and let live..... I would rather allow someone to openly deride/hate/etc a group of people and know who they really are as opposed to being lied to.

Here let me do your work for you....

Apparently Bashir, a newsperson for MSNBC following a segment of news in which he said mean things about Palin, resigned. Should he have been fired?
Quote:
Bashir did not mince words on his show on Nov. 15, dubbing Palin "America's resident dunce" and a "world-class idiot,” during a segment when he suggested someone should defecate in Palin’s mouth for a speech she gave when she equated the burden of the U.S. debt to China to slavery.


He's no Dude, but Alex Baldwin has come to his defense.

Seriously? That's what he said? "Resident dunce"? "World class idiot"? I assumed he called her a "maggot filled cunt" or something for all the pearl clutching.

No, I don't think those comments in of themselves are worthy of anyone losing their job no matter who you're saying them about: Palin, Obama, the Pope, Nelson Mandela, whoever. Now obviously if you say stuff and your viewership drops to 20% you should be fired, but because your viewership is at 20% not because you said "resident dunce".

But, hey, manufactured outrage makes the cable networks go 'round.

Just more evidence of Palin and the rest of those crazy left wing bias liberal media moguls controlling everything. If Martin had bad mouthed a conservative everyone would have just smiled and nodded. Bad mouth conservatives all you want and nothing happens. But no, say one barely bad thing about a liberal and it's the axe.

That's the script, right?

I think suggesting someone ***** in her mouth is the offensive part.

Yeah, it is Sarah Palin; but she's not the first right-wing pundit to make that comparison. I wonder whether Mr. Bashir would have said the same thing about Hannity or Beck or any other idiot with a *****.

Well okay, as long as there's some tying things up I won't complain too much.

Really, kitten? This is the feminist line you're going to draw? To answer your question: yes, he would have. He's a dramatist in the mold of Glenn Beck with different politics. I can't be bothered right now, but the guy says enough crazy **** that I imagine there's some sort of similar comment about a man. Now, is he a woman beating misogynist who can only get off when they cry? No idea. But he'd definitely call for ******** in Hannity's mouth, absolutely.

No. The script is that the Left values political correctness over free speech. And occasionally, that even screws over liberals as well as conservatives.

I agree. To be fair, though, the Right does the same, it's just different speech. Happy Holidays.

Why thank you. I started to google, cut and paste, but then I worded the OP in a way where the details weren't necessary to understand the point and participate. Secondly, I was also wondering who actually knew and or watched him.

Are you going with "absolutely must not be questioned" free speech or "can be adjusted based on the circumstances" free speech? Because even one of your squirrely inconsistent rants is favorable to the image of knowing you watch McCain ****.
