    Re: Republican Party bans MSNBC over 'offensive' tweet'

    That this lowly employee felt he could say something like that representing (supposedly)MSNBC and get away with it shows that there is a culture in MSNBC that depicts those who do not agree with their politics as racists. All one has to do is watch Matthews or the biggest racist on the planet, Sharpton, who has his own show on that network. I think we all knew that though... right?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Or conservatives saying out loud that they are Republicans.

    Not aware of conservatives reluctant to state they are conservative. But many are not embracing of the current Republican party leadership/policies.

    Your little false equivalency was sorta lame...

    It's worth pointing out that there actually was a pretty intense right wing internet backlash against the last multi-racial cheerios add in May 2013.

    So why exactly does this person need to lose their job?

    Re: Republican Party bans MSNBC over 'offensive' tweet'

    An interesting aside to this topic about the cretins at MSNBC/NBC.....

    NBC News and sister cable network MSNBC rank at the bottom of media outlets Americans trust most for news, with Fox News leading the way, according to a new poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling.

    In its fifth trust poll, 35 percent said they trusted Fox news more than any other outlet, followed by PBS at 14 percent, ABC at 11 percent, CNN at 10 percent, CBS at 9 percent, 6 percent for MSNBC and Comedy Central, and just 3 percent for NBC.

    NBC, MSNBC sink to bottom of who the public trusts | WashingtonExaminer.com

    MSNBC tied with Comedy Central? : That is GOLD!

    and NBC half of that....Oh man....Maybe people aren't as stupid as demo's think they are.

    No there wasn't.

    What did happen was feigned outrage by some on the left to try to manufacture another broad brush racist labeling of conservatives..

    I said Republican, not conservative.

    But will still vote GOP, even though not admitting it, hiding behind the skirt.

    So now we're outlawing speaking out against the government during a time of war.
    While during our great past, the laws of Sedition have been instituted.

    That's quite a quantum leap into a black hole of spin.
    Is calling a DEM a communist or a nazi like when you accuse us of calling you a racist, which I didn't btw ?
