Skip to comments.Joe Scarborough Explodes At GOP For Voting Down Gun Control: 'Party Is Moving Toward Extinction'
Posted on 04/18/2013 7:05:52 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
"Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough reamed into Senate Republicans and four Democrats who voted against the passage of a bill expanding background checks.
Particularly targeting Republicans, Scarborough said that the party was "moving toward extinction."
"You do not ignore 90 percent of the American people on an issue of public safety," Scarborough said, citing poll numbers that consistently showed nine in 10 respondents supporting the measure.
"Mark it down this is going to be a turning point in the history of the Republican Party as well," he added. "And let those out there chattering, let them chatter away all they want to and scream like hyenas. Let them do what they want to do.
"This party that killed this background check yesterday this party is moving toward extinction. A new Republican Party is going to replace it. And this is going to be a vote that people are going to look back on and say, 'That party that extremism that was unsustainable."
On Wednesday afternoon, the Senate failed to garner the 60 votes necessary to pass the measure. It drew an especially angry reaction from President Barack Obama, who made new gun legislation a key legislative goal of the start of his second term.

Either Joe exploded or someone at MSNBC passed gas on the air again.
I can’t say it here, but “N-word, please!” would be my response to him if I could tell him personally.
Nice sack dress on Bubbles!
saw that this morning, the woman next to him as well, lost it, infact they were so full of hatred that they never bothered to cover the TX explosion but then again TX and the small town is in the south, a republican voting state and area so to them it’s not elitist liberal Boston
...Said the same brilliant guy who said Kerry’s bringing John Edwards aboard the Dem ticket vs. Bush in 2004 would catapult Kerry ahead by 18%.
If it weren’t for the conservatives who tune in for comic relief and posting here on FR, Scarborough wouldn’t have an audience at all.
MSLSD passes gas every time they talk, they are so far left that they are way out of mainstream and how anyone can even call that channel a serious news networks is stunning
Joe, normally I hate the GOP with much vigor, but I’m very appreciative of whathappened yesterday...for once I have to call this a victory.
So, Joe, IN YOUR FACE!
Joe is right, the GOP is on the verge of extinction, but for altogether different reasons.
My response would be... “Go ‘F-word’ yourself”.
I guess I grow more intolerant every day. Oh, well.
DNC Party Provost Joe Scarborough?
I’d like him to prove the often bandied talking point of 90% seeing as that number keeps getting used by this administration with zero proof backing it.
“You do not ignore 90 percent of the American people on an issue of public safety,” Scarborough said, citing poll numbers that consistently showed nine in 10 respondents supporting the measure.
Uh, Joe. Please show us those numbers instead of being a lib and just repeating what you heard.
Theyr’e pissed that their constant, continuous pummelling had no influence whatsoever. It only influenced John McCain, Susan Collins and Mark Kirk, who are moderate, extra democrats anyway, and Pat Toomey, who was roped into “bipartisanship”
They’re irrelevent, and they hate that. The people and their representatives paid absolutely no attention to the political grandstanding.
Compulsive liars who believe their own lies become ever more erratic and even dangerous over time.
Have they ever gotten to the bottom of how a dead woman ended up in Scarborough’s office back when he was a Congresshole?
Joe is such a media prostitute that MSNBC ought to position him leaning on a lamp post as he belches his sulfurous screed.
They were just representing the wishes of their constituents Joe. Not the wishes of their King.
Yes, and ninety percent of the people want obama to do something to improve the jobs situation, but he and the pols never do anything about that.
I’m gobsmacked; a few more votes displaying the GOP has their balls back and I might be able to re-register as a Republican.
Just read an article in the Marine Times that came out a couple of weeks ago. It was a pole among Marines that found traditional support for the Republican party falling while at the same time the Marine Corps was becoming overall more conservative. This is a microcosm for society at large. So yes Joe you are correct. The Republican party is becoming extinct. But for the wrong reasons you are stating. This vote yesterday will strengthen the Republican party.
Okay, Joe, whatever. The bill is dead and Obama has entered lame-duck territory. Deal with it.
He’s no Republican; not even a RINO in his views. Just a liar on the set.
I coulda been a senator.
Start enforcing the laws on the books. Can Joe tell us how this law would do anything to prevent criminals from getting guns? I think I hear the crickets.
“This party is moving toward extinction.”
Hey Joe. That’s projection.
Exactly, instead of doing things proven to improve the job outlook, this administration instead does things proven to injure, destroy and damage jobs.
All while shouting, “I’m helping!”
90% of what vote?
The numbers on gun and ammo sales tell a different story Joe. Why don’t you look at those numbers.
This was fun to watch, I DVERed it and saw it live.
Morning Joe also previously predicted that this bill was going to pass, so when Dems lose Senate seats next year he wont be talking about this.
He also said the ‘new GOP’ will embrace gun control.
Mark Halprin said on show “Its a complex issue ‘ and so Joe jumped all over him like he was the NRA.
Along with the rest of our foolish, God-forsaken nation, I'm afraid.
He and MSNBC have upped the rhetoric, may be related to Comcast recently buying out the rest of GE ..now full owned by comcast.
Joe, if you want ratings, the last guy you want to steal crazy from is Chris Matthews.
I know of at least one dead intern who might have benefited from a gun, when she "fell over and hit her head" on your desk.
With that support, the bill would have bipartisan support and passed overwhelmingly.
The Senators voted the the way their constituents demanded.
If they had said, "Do you support creating a national gun registry and subpoena of all your most confidential medical records against your will?" they would have gotten a very different number.
"♫ ...REPUBLICANS! ♪"
What a sap.
Who is Joe Scarborough? Some TV news guy? If so, who cares.
Question: How many congressmen does it take to bash his mistress/intern's head against a desk until she's dead?
Answer: None. She fell.
Zero is such a true believer tht he can’t even see the fact that Americans don’t want gun increased gun registration with an eventual national databank of all gun owners. He overplayed he hand and he will get nothing now.
LOL! Morning hystronics from Morning Blow.
Can you say "Pot, kettle, black"?
Let me get this straight. The left convinces the lemmings that UBC’s would have stopped mass shootings, then browbeats those who know it wouldn’t for not supporting it.
Joe, Instead of ranting about the devastating defeat Obama took yesterday....you should have questioned why POTUS Obama has not uttered one word about the devastating explosion in West, Texas. Shucks, even Pope Francis offered prayer and comfort this morning!!!
It’s just crazy. Most of the people posting their dislike of the failure of this bill have not even bothered to read below the fold. They hear Obama say, the NRA and Gun Rights Advocates lied. That’s why even Harry Reid, who initially said he’d vote his conscience, discovered the bill wouldn’t pass then voted against his conscience so it could be brought up again. Talk about filth bag!
Didn’t the recent Gallup poll show that only 6% of those polled cared about the gun issues? WOW it was really 90%? Riiiight. Background checks are already on the books. Order a firearm and it gets delivered to a FFL gun shop who then puts your name into the computer for a background check before you are allowed to take it. The magazine thing is also a joke, CA has it already, so if you want a large mag. you get one from out of state. I’m sure it can be arranged to get as many as you want from Tijuana too. What we have is a war against firearms like the war against drugs. Like most things in this world, money talks no one walks. Lets get our nation back to work, its more important than guns or same sex marriage.
These people don’t care what’s in it, they want guns banned, period. They don’t want so-called “common sense” gun laws.
They need to be challenged with
“why do you NEED guns to be banned?”
Joe “concern troll” Scarborough.
FK him, A$$hole. (that’s about as simple and plain as I can make it)
