    Republican Party bans MSNBC over 'offensive' tweet' [W:39]

    The Republican National Committee announced Thursday it is banning MSNBC until the cable network issues an apology for a tweet the political party considers “offensive and unacceptable.”

    “Maybe the rightwing will hate it but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” read the tweet, which included a link to the cereal commercial. MSNBC has since deleted the post from Twitter and apologized in subsequent tweets.

    my only question is does anyone really expect better from MSNBC?

    I think MSNBC has been very consistent in depicting and following the DNC narrative that all Republicans are racists. There would be no reason I know of to expect MSNBC to do anything but continue down that path.
    “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.

    Today's Republicans are all in when it comes to disgracing any of the amendments, especially the first.

    Don't forget their narrative is also republicans hate women too.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I dont really think to much of political parties which think they are entitled to ban certain outlets of the press to report on them.

    No matter how bad that press may be.

    Yeah, and considering that most of them use to be former Aides and staffers for Demo Politicians.....I never did think that Crystal Blue Persuasion would be their cup of tea.

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

    So they're banning MSNBC for expressing an opinion and not apologizing for something that they apologized for that happened a year ago?

    Aren't these the same people who got themselves in a wad when the guy from Duck Dynasty got in trouble for expressing an opinion? Am I missing something here?

    Yep. What difference, at this point, does it make?
