Progressive Myths About the Founding Fathers, and Hating Whitey

Not everyone admires the Founders. As a reflection of his rebranding as a “progressive,” Ed Schultz accused Glenn Beck of “Psycho Talk” for thinking well of the Founding Fathers. After Beck mentioned his appreciation of Samuel Adams, Ed lectured Beck that the Founders deserved no honor, because they were evil white men. [M]ost of these Founding Fathers that you think so highly of were … [Read more...]

MSNBC: Opposing Obama’s Olympic Push “Rivals Jane Fonda Sitting on a Gun in North Vietnam”

See Big Ed decry conservatives's "lack of patriotism." In the misty past of ten months ago, dissent was patriotic, mass protests were a sign of passionate civic engagement, and the greatest sin any politician could commit was questioning someone’s patriotism. But that was America, B.B.O. (Before Barack Obama). Now dissent is potential incitement, middle American protesters are Swastika-carrying … [Read more...]

Ed “Clarifies”: Not “All” Republicans Support Cancer, Death

As I reported yesterday, talk show host and MSNBC’s lowest rated host Ed Schultz Wednesday stated Republicans “want to see you dead,” “kinda like it” when women without insurance get cancer, and suggested Sen. Olympia Snowe allow cancerous tumors to spread through her body for two weeks before seeking treatment. Last night, he offered wimpy “clarifications” that neither apologized for his … [Read more...]

MSNBC Commentator: Republicans “Want to See You Dead…They Kinda Like It When That Woman Has Cancer”

Click to see Ed Schultz's unhinged meltdown. On the Wednesday evening edition of The Ed Show, MSNBC commentator Ed Schultz stated that Republicans want Americans to die, and that they enjoy it when middle-aged women contract cancer. He then suggested that moderate Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine should allow tumors to spread through her body if she ever gets cancer. Schultz, whose … [Read more...]

Jimmy Carter Repeats MSNBC’s “Bury Obama With Kennedy” Lie

It wasn’t enough for former President Jimmy Carter to falsely accuse critics of Barack Obama of being racists; now he’s added a blood libel. Carter reiterated his belief that all disagreements with Obama are “based on the fact that he is a black man” Tuesday. Last night MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann thanked Carter for rendering this “service” during a forum in Atlanta, where Carter said: The outbursts … [Read more...]

“Bury Obama with Kennedy”?

One of the more flagrant bald-faced lies leftists have told about the 9/12 rally took place last night. I assume it has not been mentioned because it happened on MSNBC’s The Ed Show, and no one saw it. Ed Schultz was discussing the “tasteless signs” displayed by the “crazies” who gathered in D.C. “How about this one?” he intoned. “‘Bury Obama with Kennedy.’” The only trouble was, as Ed was … [Read more...]

Pulling the Trigger?

The president’s health care speech last night consisted of discredited canards bookended by emotional manipulation. Between his distortions, token gestures for opponents, and lengthy bouts of tongue-lashing, Barack Obama signaled he will continue pushing forward toward socialized medicine. However, it seems likely he will move incrementally through a final bill that will nationalize health care a … [Read more...]

Did MSNBC Fake Its Own Transcript to Cover for Ed Schultz?

MSNBC: where Ed Schultz's idiocy goes down the memory hole. Does MSNBC edit its transcripts to make its hosts look better and conservatives look worse? The network’s transcript of Monday’s edition of “The Ed Show” did just that. Host Ed Schultz had on Ron Christie, former deputy advisor to Dick Cheney, to discuss Obama’s ever-weakening Homeland Security policies. In the discussion, Ed made an … [Read more...]

Ed Schultz to Congresswoman Bachmann: Go Kill Yourself

Last night, MSNBC host Ed Schultz used his network’s airways to hope Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-MN, would come on his show and commit suicide. As part of his appropriately named “Psycho Talk” segment, he featured Bachmann’s unfortunately worded statement to a group opposing socialized medicine: “What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. … [Read more...]

Outraged by People Power

One of the enduring myths of the Left is that it somehow represents the common man. Both objective data and public perception show the Democrats are a party of elitists who look down upon the unenlightened hayseeds residing in Jesusland. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz demonstrated this last night with his outrage over a new Gallup poll that shows 34 percent of Americans feel the townhall health care … [Read more...]
