Exactly. Go ahead, knock yourselves silly, we'll get the popcorn!

Oh no. What will the world do if cut off from his fountain of knowledge?
 
2012-01-18 09:09:38 AM
Can't say I'm thrilled they gave Sharpton a show, but that's a stupid argument.

"Look, for a long period of time the hard left, militant gay rights groups, militant -- they call themselves civil rights groups, but I'm not sure they're concerned about civil rights -- people of color, Van Jones, these folks and others have been out to get Pat Buchanan off TV, deny him speeches, get him column canceled," Buchanan said. "This has been done for years and years and years and it's the usual suspects doing the same thing again."

You mean to tell me that MSNBC doesn't want this guy on T.V.? What a bunch of commie pinko radicals! Pat needs to get a show at Fox News so that their news can become even more Fair and Balanced™.
 
2012-01-18 09:11:32 AM
Oh noes!! Not Sharpton!

Is he really talking in third person?

I'm not sure Fox would have him. He's got the fear and hatred of minorities down pat, but he needs to work on his corporate boot-licking before he's ready for the big leagues.

That's like saying that since FOX News has banned intelligent thought, they've banned stupidity as well.
 
2012-01-18 09:48:47 AM
Well, they both distrust the Joos.

Also, MSNBC is the whitest group of liberal talk show hosts this side of a Merv Griffin production.
 
2012-01-18 09:55:44 AM
I'm pretty sure Sharpton never wrote about saying we shouldn't have gone to war against the Nazis.

So vote Republican.

No. Don't support MSNBC because they have doubled down on the no dissenting voices move.

If they take Sharpton off it will be the end of LIFE AS WE KNOW IT. Without that bastion of truth and liberty our society will fail and the collapse will make Rome look like the closing of Blockbuster. We must fight this. We must. If you believe in the country and for what it stands for you must join me in ensuring the never take our Sharpton away. EVER!

\Better?
\\Head hurts now

You honestly believe Pat Buchanan is the best "dissenting voice" the conservatives could hope for on MSNBC? If I were a conservative I would be completely embarrassed by him.
 
2012-01-18 10:17:04 AM

GWLush: \Better?


A worthy effort. Could have used a reference to the inevitable nightmare of fascism if Al is gone.
 
2012-01-18 10:27:42 AM

Wendy's Chili: Is he really talking in third person?


Yeah, he is. Because of that, I think Sharpton should keep his show. Not because he deserves it, or because anyone gives a flying fark about what he thinks, or that nobody would care if Sharpton didn't have a show, but if it pisses Buchanan off that much, I'm OK with it.
 
2012-01-18 10:30:54 AM
no one listens to Sharpton so it doesn't matter.
 
2012-01-18 10:35:07 AM

tenpoundsofcheese: no one listens to Sharpton so it doesn't matter.


ditto for Pat. They should have their own Hannity and Colmes style show.

Old Bitter White Dick and Race-Baiting Black Doucheknocker.
 
2012-01-18 10:37:03 AM
If MSNBC really wanted to hurt conservatives, they would put Pat Buchanan on all day.
 
2012-01-18 10:38:29 AM
So this is a 'both sides are bad, watch a Nazi'?

Marcus Aurelius: That's like saying that since FOX News has banned intelligent thought, they've banned stupidity as well.


Fox News has already banned intelligent thought. The channel exists. If they ban stupidity today, all they'd be able to show is a black screen.

/Would that mean it might be misconstrued as joining opposition of SOPA?
//Not that ANYTHING EVER would be misconstrued on Fox News
///If you have to tell people you're fair, anyone with a brain should look at it with trepidation
////No, really. You can trust me. Amirite?
 
2012-01-18 10:42:36 AM
I don't really watch Sharpton for the political content....it's more of a circus side-show appeal.
 
2012-01-18 10:42:56 AM

Aarontology: skullkrusher: Old Bitter White Dick and Race-Baiting Black Doucheknocker.

hehe it would be entertaining as hell.

Fark you, youuppity colored bastard!
Fark me??! FARK YOU you cracker ass cracker motherfarker!

And... curtain

Because Al Sharpton, Civil Rights Clown, is exactly the same as Pat Buchanan, Nazi Apologist.
 
2012-01-18 10:44:26 AM
Good. Al Sharpton needs to STFU.
 
2012-01-18 10:45:23 AM
Whatever. MSNBC had a guy on one of their shows call the president a "dick." Your move, Fox News, who to drop the inaugural N-bomb? Do O'Reilly and Hannity fight it out, or play paper-rock-scissors for the honor?
 
2012-01-18 10:45:31 AM
Given how liberals respond to legitimate criticism of Obama any and all criticism of Sharpton will be declared racism anyway.
 
2012-01-18 10:45:36 AM
Sharpton is nothing like Buchanan.

Buchanan should be banned for being a prejudiced troll out of touch with any decent American.

Sharpton should be banned for being an idiot out of touch with anyone whose IQ is high enough to be eligible for execution in Texas.

Completely different.
 
2012-01-18 10:45:51 AM
Oh no. They might lose the racist grandpa demographic.
 
2012-01-18 10:46:04 AM
He has his own show in MSNBC? Well, that's just stupid.
 
2012-01-18 10:47:04 AM
Get rid of Sharpton, bring back TYT and Jenk.
 
2012-01-18 10:47:26 AM

sxacho: He has his own show in MSNBC? Well, that's just stupid.


Not just "hired Al Sharpton" stupid, but "sent Cenk Uyger packing and hired Al Sharpton" stupid.

"This has been done for years and years and years and it's the usual suspects doing the same thing again."

Translation from Derpistanese:

"Oh, shiat, I said another really farking retarded thing out loud and now my paycheck shrunk a bit; better dial the stupid up to 11 so somebody from Fox News picks me up and pays me!"

I hope they keep Sharpton around just to raise this idiot's blood pressure.

Is that all you see when you see Obama and Sharpton? A couple of blah people? That's not racist at all.

indylaw: Because Al Sharpton, Civil Rights Clown, is exactly the same as Pat Buchanan, Nazi Apologist.


I'm sure they have both said and contributed positive words and ideas of note.

I can't think of any in the last 20-25 years, but that's what you get on the news-o-taint-ment shows.

// watch Stewart instead
// or better yet, read 5 legit news sources from 3 different countries

You got that right. The libs here won't admit it, but they're crying on the inside.

Maybe you should check out liberal websites. Plenty of criticism of Obama.
Legitimate criticism, not the nutty WHAR CERTIFICATE type.

Can we dump both of them? They both do a shiat load more damage than good.
