MSNBC, Olberman rants on Tea Party

Read article on

I found the post described as “A near-perfect 20-minute summary of the right-wing crazies who might triumph today”:

It is as if a group of moderately talented performers has walked on stage at a comedy club on improv night. Each hears a shout from the audience, consisting of a bizarre but just barely plausible fear or hatred or neurosis or prejudice.

And the entertainment of the evening is for each to take their thin, absurd premise, and build upon it a campaign for governor or congressman or senator. The problem is, of course, when it turns out there is no audience shouting out gags, just a cabal of corporations and the US Chamber of Commerce and political insider bloodsuckers like Karl Rove and Dick Armey and the Chicken Little Chorus of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.

And the instructions are not to improvise a comedy sketch, but to elect a group of unqualified, unstable individuals who will do what they are told, in exchange for money and power, and march this nation as far backward as they can get, backward to Jim Crow, or backward to the breadlines of the Thirties, or backward to hanging union organizers, or backward to the trusts and the robber barons.

Result: the Tea Party. Vote backward, vote Tea Party. And if you are somehow indifferent to what is planned for next Tuesday, it is nothing short of an attempt to use democracy to end this democracy, to buy America wholesale and pave over the freedoms and the care we take of one another, which have combined to keep us the envy of the world.

You do not think your freedom is at stake next Tuesday?

The US Chamber of Commerce is now the enemy?

Beck and Limbaugh are Chicken Littles yet Olbermann claims the midterm victory will now lead to “backward to Jim Crow, or backward to the breadlines of the Thirties, or backward to hanging union organizers, or backward to the trusts and the robber barons.” — Really?

Beck, Limbaugh and others are hardly heroes in this campaign, proving to be late to the declaration of a socialist President with government takeover and control at the pinnacle of his agenda. No, hardly Chicken Littles, but how is that different that the King MSNBC fearmonger?

Olbermann’s fellow MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell proclaimed with pride his socialist commitments. Read here

Sure the staff at MSNBC fed the ESPN host Olbermann plenty of sound bites and innuendo for their liberal viewers to fear the loss of Social Security (“Bush’s scam to privatize” and Wall Street will “wipe out your retirement money”) or the possible ban on abortions. This Chicken Little mischaracterizes Rich Iott’s “reenactment of WWII scenes” as

“ran around in a Nazi uniform celebrating their military tactics” Read Iott story here

Olbermann and his MSNBC cronies completely lie about the inheritance tax implying it’s for only the uber-rich: Federal Inheritance Tax

I personally love the cringe induced pause as the association between Social Security and Ponzi scheme crosses over Olbermann liberal lips. I’ve made it clear how I feel Read here or here

This is why we are doomed. Social Security and other programs, glorified by the left, no matter if they are bankrupt or unsustainable, will be protected and defended. Olbermann says “Unconstitutional” as though it’s a four letter word – obviously NEVER reading or understanding what’s truly in the Constitution.

“Congress ending funding” strikes fear into the hearts and minds of liberals…why? Because it’s THEIR JOB and THEIR responsibility. I personally don’t believe any of these campaign promises will come to pass and the sound bites will just continue to fly in vain.

Thanks again for the lesson Mr. Olbermann. You have indeed schooled us all, yes indeed.

    Imagine that. The Obama administration is lying yet again. How many lies are we going to sit back and listen too before we wake up? Watch for your state in this video and see if that makes you proud. Show your kids and grandchildren. Then apologize for saddling them with our child like debt. We knew what was happening but we chose to not say anything.
