Liars: Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski

I doubt these MSNBC lying propagandists feel any shame whatsoever, even though they’ve now been busted (hat tip Right Scoop).

Charles Joseph “Joe” Scarborough, liar

Mika Emilie Leonia Brzezinski, liar

Joe responded after the doctored clip with a fake laugh outburst, hands completely covering and rubbing his face, while he muttered “Sweet Jesus” in feigned embarrassment for Romney. Mika offered a patronizing fake apology: “Sorry. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t be so hard on him [Romney].” Both showed outward discomfort in these responses, unable to look into the camera while they lamely attempted to bolster the lie.

Open thread: Despicable divisiveness

I am opening this thread on August 17, 2012, and I pray that I’ll be able to close it in my lifetime.  I am sick, sick, sick of race baiting, Balkanization, false divisiveness, vicious dishonesty, and bigotry accusations from the mouths of bigots. I hope that we Americans retire these rot peddlers into the putrid history bin marked “contempt”.

2012-11-06, Michael Moore spouts ignorant, unfounded racist accusations on HuffPost Live (HPL hosts were Ahmed Shihab-Eldin and Zach Carter). This exchange is such a stunning hack job by all three participants that it must be seen to be believed:
HPL, AS-E: “A lot of people on the mainstream media you watch it when race does come up they talk about how Republicans are kinda doubling down on the white electorate they… they’re claiming that Latinos aren’t going to the polls, so on, so forth. Why does division… I mean, do you think race is… is overlooked in terms of, uh, how significant a role it plays?”
Moore: “People are really uncomfortable to wanna… to say it. Uh, even just before we went on, y’know I was… I was [smile, hand waving] using some euphemism…”
HPL, AS-E: “right”
Moore: “Uh, to avoid having to say what I think a lot of us know to be the truth. And it’s not to say that all Republicans are racist, uh, or people who voted for Romney are racist, I don’t believe that, but I do believe that hate is a huge motivator on… on Romney’s side. And they have manipulated that, and exploited it as best they can to try and get people out to get rid of Barack Obama. Not so much that… that they’re for Romney, but to get rid of… of Obama.”
HPL, ZC: “We’ve heard… that… that Welfare ad that… that he was running for a very long time…”
Moore: “Yeah, exactly”
HPL, ZC: “…I think that was clearly [inaudible]”
Moore: “no, they know exactly what they’re doing”
[Cut/Splice in original HuffPost video]
HPL, ZC: “Well, I guess I’m curious, ’cause I understand the… the psychology behind [smile, hand waving] like a ruling class landowner from… from the 18th century, but… but these groups like True the Vote, this sortof like Minutemen-esque, sortof grass roots voter suppression, uh-uh-uh movement that’s going… I mean where does that come from? Is that… that something that… that you think of as being relatively new and unique, or do you see this as a… a y’know trans-historical phenomenon?
Moore: “I think… I think it’s been with us for a very long time, and… and that, um, that kindof harassment and intimidation has come in many forms over the years. And today, it’s in the form of… I don’t know how many… [pause, swallow, more handwaving] they claim to have hundreds of thousands of people at the polls. They’re gonna try and stop as many people… look like they’re gonna vote for Obama uh, as possible. Umm…”
HPL, AS-E: “By that you mean people of color, perhaps? Minorities, I dunno [smiling]? Latinos [large smile]?”
[all three share a good laugh]
Moore [chuckling throughout his answer]: “I-I-I-I… that was… that was… that was a… that was a polite way of saying…”
HPL, AS-E [still smiling]: “…potentially”
Moore: “…[laugh pause] there’s a group of racists standing at the polling booths, looking… [waves hands]”
HPL, ZC: “Doesn’t that shock you, though? I mean, it’s 2012. I mean, IT IS 2012, and we’re doing this Jim Crow stuff.”
Moore: “No…”
HPL, AS-E: “We’re also talking about abortion in 2012. [smiling]”
Moore: “But listen, I… guys, um, I… I lived in a time… I have a memory as a child of seeing a sign on a restroom door that said ‘whites only.’ I mean, that’s in my lifetime, and look how young I am. So I mean, it [laughs]… it wasn’t that long ago.”

2012-11-06, Anonymous Coward Racist broke federal law and put flyers from a non-existent Tea Party group in mailboxes in Medina County, Ohio. One side said ‘ROMNEY MUST WIN / THE N—– OBAMA MUST LOSE / DEMOCRATES (sic) AND THE N—–S WANT TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY AS WE KNOW IT / GET OUT AND VOTE / GOD IS ON OUR SIDE / THE NRA IS BEHIND YOU / BE PREPARED / BE ARMED’. The other side said ‘THANK YOU FOR HELPING US DEFEND “WHITE AMERICA” BY DEFEATING THE N—– IN OUR “WHITE HOUSE”. / PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING THE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN TICKET TO HELP OUR COUNTRY STAY STRONG AND WHITE. / THE NRA KNOWS THAT THE N—–S WANT TO CONTROL OUR COUNTRY. / BE PREPARED / BE ARMED / MCTP’ (sources: Breitbart, Weasel Zippers)

Propagandists, all together now!

Real Clear Politics, the Weekly Standard, and Politico set the “heckle” bar pretty darned low, especially when carrying the water for the Beloved One.  MSNBC also led the “heckle” echo chamber, but also astutely (cough) observed the “racism” involved.

So there you have it, my friends:  “heckle” is the newspeak word of the day, meaning “to dare expect Obama to field a tough question” or “to disagree with an Obama policy (usually risked only by a racist)”.
