  • WaPo's Marcus: GOP Candidates 'Inflamed People, Helped Create Environment' for CO Shooting

    Ruth Marcus has come close to blaming Republicans for the Colorado Springs shootings. Appearing on Jose Diaz-Balart's MSNBC show today, Washington Post columnist Marcus said that "the Republican candidates . . . have been part of the inflamed and inflammatory rhetoric about Planned Parenthood, about the sale of baby parts, about dismembering live babies . . . I think it's a fair conclusion, especially based on his . . . alleged mentioning of 'no more baby parts,' that this kind of rhetoric helped create this environment." Really? Is there no room for people--without being accused of inflaming people to commit...

    A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the Far Left media attacking the U.S. government's No-Fly list as unfairly targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison -- arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell. It's a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long's cause was being championed by MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

    Dallas, TX Mayor Mike Rawlings spoke Saturday on MSNBC, saying that ISIS wants the United States to "demonize" the Syrian refugees, the reason being that ISIS does not represent Islam. "ISIS wants us to demonize these Syrian refugees, want us to alienate these children," Rawlings said. "We have got to build a coalition of Middle Eastern states and we need to reach out, they're Muslims and we have got to use the words carefully to show them that we care about them. ISIS is no more Islamic than the Nazi senior staff was Christian. so we have got to differentiate...

Only some airheaded, MSM type would embarrass herself to this degree. Mr. Trump not only negotiated and built a lovely tower in America’s...

    Roughly 30 minutes after (perhaps appropriately) ripping into the media for their labeling of ISIS terrorist Abdelhamid Abaaoud the “mastermind” of Friday’s Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris, MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell struck out against Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) for engaging in “predictable, childish bluster” by responding to President Obama’s denouncement of his stance on Syrian refugees.  Following introductions and soundbites from House Speaker Paul Ryan and the President on the issue, O’Donnell remarked that the 2016 GOP candidate “was the first Republican candidate this week to say we should accept only Christian refugees into this country.” Watch...

Appearing on MSNBC show this evening, asked by Chris Hayes if he was surprised by the "vitriol" of police reaction to his speech at a recent rally in New York at which he called police "murderers," Quentin whined: "I was under the impression I was an American and that I had First Amendment rights."

Tarantino explained his statement that triggered the boycott by saying, “Well, we were at a rally that was dealing with unarmed people, mostly black and brown, who have been shot and killed, or beaten, or strangled by the police, and I was obviously referring to the people in those type of situations. I was referring to Eric Garner. I was referring to Sam...

Still, I was truly shocked to see Sanders—not in some throwaway comment on the campaign trail but in prepared remarks on the Senate floor—flatly call the death penalty "murder." On his MSNBC show this morning, Al Sharpton played the Sanders clip to illustrate how Sanders is working to differentiate his policy positions from those of Hillary Clinton, who says she supports the death penalty in "rare" cases. Question: how can we begin to explain the moral compass of liberals like Sanders who...

    After tape rolled of Black Lives Matter demonstrators repeatedly chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," you might have thought a BLM leader would either apologize, or at least seek to miminize the incident as the excesses of an irresponsible and unrepresenative few. But no. On today's Melissa Harris-Perry show, after just such video was played, BLM leader Monica Dennis issued not one word of apology. To the contrary, Dennis said "there is no need to apologize" for what the BLM movement is "putting forth," and touted the group's intention "to resist" the police. The segment began with...

But the ADL wasnt the only major organization to weigh in: The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum also took issue with Carsons decision to inject his claims into Americas gun debate.

    Prior to Donald Trumps rally Monday night in Dallas, Texas, Chris Matthews and the panelists on MSNBCs Hardball mocked Republican women and voters from southwestern Virginia of Scots-Irish heritage whove got an attitude and previously supported Democrats like Jim Webb. Exhibiting why Democrats have been disappearing from offices in areas along the Appalachians, Matthews wrote them off as white people like Pat Buchanan of Scots-Irish down in southwestern Virginia...where theyre kind of the people that went to the mountains when they immigrated to the United States, they went right to the rural areas and they've got an attitude.

    [O]ver the course of his decades-long involvement in American political life, Trump has taken positions on liberal priorities that would put him firmly in the Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party. 1. Government health care for all 2. Legalize all drugs 3. Tax the wealth of the 1% 4. No more foreign wars 5. Defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership and protect American workers [P]rogressives could learn a thing or two from some of the positions the Donald has taken over the years. And to combat inequality, incarceration, and war, progressives may want their ideal 2016 candidate to be more like...

Both MSNBCs Chris Matthews and HBOs Bill Maher wouldnt be surprised. We nailed him, Matthews said last night on Real Time With Bill Maher, crowing about MSNBCs playing and replaying Donald Trumps non-response response to a supporters ludicrous birther assertions and Islamophobic aspersions. During Real Times mostly-Trump discussion Friday, Maher recalled how just days before hed teased Hardball host Matthews about MSNBCs Trump obsession, and you said thats because you want to be there...

    Trump gave a great statement today to MSNBC about the Iran deal, saying Obama negotiated from desperation, that we shouldnt be giving Iran any money, and that we should have at least gotten back our four Americans being held in prison in Iran. Trump says the deal is terrible, because without immediate inspections, weve got nothing and the Iranians know it.

    It's one thing for conservatives to concur that Carly Fiorina was outstanding at last night's debate. But to hear a string of superlatives about Fiorina coming from committed liberal Mika Brzezinski was breathtaking. Over the course of today's Morning Joe, a stream of praise for Fiorina flowed from Mika, capped by this: "my God, I have never seen anyone like her. Ever." View the video here.

    It took nearly seven years, but at long last it's finally been heard -- praise for Sarah Palin on MSNBC. Even better, one of the people praising Palin -- and there were three, count 'em, three libs on the Lean Leftward cable network today doing so -- suggested that flailing Democrat Hillary Clinton could do worse than to look toward Palin as a political model to emulate. The gratifying twofer came on MSNBC's usually cringe-inducing Melissa Harris-Perry show during a panel discussion of authenticity or the lack thereof among politicians. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The program's namesake host cited Clinton's speech in China 20...
