Newsweek Editor Wins 'Obamagasm' Award: Obama 'Sort of God' Monday, May 09, 2011 By Eric Scheiner
(CNSNews.com) - The Media Research Center held its 2011 Gala and DisHonors Awards event this past Saturday. The DisHonors awards recognizes and roasts the liberal medias worst moments, with winners in several different categories and an overall winner with a Quote Of the Year.
In the Obamagasm Award category, the winner was Newsweek Editor Evan Thomas who said, Reagan [at the 1984 D-Day commemoration] was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is, We are above that now. We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something.' I mean, in a way, Obama's standing above the country, above above the world. He's sort of God. He's going to bring all different sides together.
Thomas made the comments while appearing on a June 5th, 2009 broadcast of MSNBCs Hardball program.
In the Im Not A Political Genius, But I Play One On TV Award category, Actor/Director/Activist Rob Reiners comments on a Oct. 22nd, 2010 appearance on the Real Time With Bill Maher program took the DisHonor.
Hitler, by the way, never got more than 33 percent of the vote ever in Germany....He wasnt a majority guy, but he was charismatic, and they were having bad economic times just like we are now. People were out of work, they needed jobs, and a guy came along and rallied the troops. My fear is that the Tea Party gets a charismatic leader, because all theyre selling is fear and anger and thats all Hitler sold: Im angry and I'm frightened and you should hate that guy over there, Reiner said during his appearance.
PBSs Tavis Smiley won the Tea Party From Hell Award for a May 25th, 2010 interview he conducted with Author Ayaan Hirsi Ali, talking about radical Muslims.
Ali:Somehow, the idea got into their minds that to kill other people is a great thing to do and that they would be rewarded in the hereafter.
Host Tavis Smiley: But Christians do that every single day in this country.
Ali: Do they blow people up every day?
Smiley: Yes. Oh, Christians, every day, people walk into post offices, they walk into schools, thats what Columbine is I could do this all day long....There are folk in the Tea Party, for example, every day who are being recently arrested for making threats against elected officials, for calling people nigger as they walk into Capitol Hill, for spitting on people. Thats within the political thats within the body politic of this country.
An April 19th, 2010 episode of Countdown on MSNBC where Keith Olbermann named Rush Limbaugh as the Worst Person in The World topped the winning spot in the Ode To Obermann category.
What was the more likely cause of the Oklahoma City bombing: talk radio or Bill Clinton and Janet Renos hands-on management of Waco, the Branch Davidian compound and maybe to a lesser extent Ruby Ridge? Well, obviously, the answer is talk radio, specifically Rush Limbaughs hate radio....Limbaugh claimed others would have blood on their hands in the event of future right wing terrorism. Frankly, Rush, you have that blood on your hands now, and you have had it for 15 years, Olbermann said during the broadcast.
2011 MRC Gala and DisHonor awards The Winner of the Damn Those Conservatives Award and the Quote Of The Year went to MSNBC host Ed Schultz.
The Republicans lie! They want to see you dead! Theyd rather make money off your dead corpse! They kind of like it when that woman has cancer and they dont have anything for her, Schultz claimed on the Sept. 23, 2009 broadcast of The Ed Show.
They ought have an award every week. The prize could be a chrome plated set of lips on a butt. Obamagasm of the week.
NOT GOOD ENOUGH, EVAN THOMAS!!!!
The words "sort of" belie the TRUE WORSHIP REQUIRED!!!!!
Tavis Smiley’s statements were the worst.
“Yes. Oh, Christians, every day, people walk into post offices, they walk into schools, thats what Columbine is I could do this all day long”
Well, I suppose Christians DO walk into post offices and schools every day, but they rarely (if ever) murder people while there.
Columbine? The killers were actually ANTI-Chirstian. In fact, they asked all of their victims if they were “believers”. Those who answered YES were executed.
“I could do this all day”. Do what? Lie and smear about Christians?
Yes, we know Tavis. You actually do - all day, every day.
We are an incredibly polarized country, and this supposed ‘journalist’ says this? Newsweek has now the same credibility as a comic book. They might as well start selling advertising for ‘X-ray glasses’.
"So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne and gave an oration to them. And the people kept shouting, The voice of a god and not of a man! Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died."--Acts 12:21-23
How do we even breed people like Evan Thomas in this country?
Yep, he’s above it all, flying higher and higher, up, up and away, above the World, out into space, to the farthest star....hopefully.
Yep, the left does stand for something, and they are going to bring people together...by force into a fascist imperialist world empire.
Yep, Hitler was a charasmatic guy too, and he brought alot of people together, just like the Left thinks Obama will do. See the last paragraph. The Tea party ironically doesn’t seem to have any leader and none seems forthcoming anytime soon, so no Hitler fantasies for you!
Christians walking into thousands of places every day and nothing happens. Muslims, not so much.
It makes you wonder if Evan Thomas tickles his pickle with thoughts of Obama in toga standing before some greek columns.
Sort of satan, rather...
see video in post 7
He had to STEP DOWN into the Oval Office it was so beneath him. In current every day are they still drooling or just covering up for him as JournOlists?
Nothing to monitor here, pass it along, just liberals being liberals, no terrorism to see, no vascillation, nope, just ministering blood libel to America as usual, and ministering their god of death and non-minister PC gone awry ... now on to Hillary’s mandated gay happy cruise with “China is not viewed as a threat” all the way to the happy Laogai camps (sarc off)
The MRC gives these clowns too much coverage!
If it wasn’t for the MRC, who would know of this?
Wow, our new aristocracy is more disgusting than the previous we did away with. This is really obsene. No shame? Funny all those financing this are hiding behind it all, like meek little f2gs, you know, hidding behind this wall of propaganda.
