Opinion: Ed Schultz, Al Sharpton, and Chris Matthews: A Fair and Balanced Look at MSNBC

The mainstream media has for weeks now pounced on the comments made by conservative talk show host (and one of my heroes) Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh a few weeks ago made the following statement:

What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic], who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps. (interruption) The johns? We would be the johns? No! We’re not the johns. (interruption) Yeah, that’s right. Pimp’s not the right word. Okay, so she’s not a slut. She’s “round heeled”. I take it back.

Personally, I think Limbaugh was just calling a spade a spade. A prostitute and a slut after all is defined as being paid to have sex, which is essentially is what Fluke was arguing for in defended the ObamaCare mandate that all health insurance plans must cover contraception. However, I understand that the language was questionable, and thus Limbaugh apologized for it. Despite the apology, the mainstream media continues to bash Limbaugh for his comments, not accept his apology, and even call to boycott his show. Not only is this ridiculous, it’s hypocritical. Those on the Left make worse comments than Limbaugh everyday, and it’s about time they’re called out on it. So we’re going to look at the disgusting, far-left, moronic propagandist TV station known as MSNBC. Every single one of MSNBC’s hosts are embarrassments to the field of journalism, but today’s post will feature three of the hosts: Ed Schultz, Al Sharpton, and Chris Matthews. Ed Schultz Ed “the Red” Schultz believe it or not used to be a conservative. Then one day he wanted to make money and became a liberal, thus transforming into a vile, filthy politcal commentator. Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center recently wrote a letter to MSNBC president Phil Griffin in which he calls on Griffin to fire Schultz for the following reasons:

Ed Schultz, the man who called Laura Ingraham a “right wing slut.” The man who claimed that “The Republicans want to see you dead! They’d rather make money off your dead corpse! They kind of like it when that woman has cancer and they don’t have anything for her.” Or consider his comments on the former Vice President: “You’re damn right, Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him.” Schultz has compared the Tea Party to Nazi Brown Shirts, asked if the term “whore” applied to Joe Lieberman’s wife, and claimed publicly on his show that conservative broadcasters want Obama shot. And that is but the tip of the iceberg. The list of vile, repugnant venom coming out of Schultz’s mouth is extensive:

So where was the mainstream media when Schultz called Ingraham a slut, the same thing Limbaugh called Fluke? Nowhere. I listen to Rush’s show every morning, and he has never said anything remotely as bad as anything up there Schultz has said. Schultz has a sewer for a brain, and frankly I agree with Bozell: he deserves to get thrown off radio and TV. He deserves a boycott much more than Limbaugh. Al Sharpton The Reverend Al Sharpton, or as my hero Mark Levin likes to call him Al Not-so-Sharpton, has a rather hypocritical career. Sharpton’s career is built off of race. Funny given the racist remarks he has made, which can you listen to below thanks to Jeffrey Lord of the American Spectator:

And to top it, you can see footage of Sharpton calling somebody a “punk f*ggot”:

If Limbaugh ever said anything close to what Sharpton said right there, the media would be calling for his head.

Chris Matthews

Chris Matthews is of course known for his show “Hardball.” I prefer to think of him as Mark Levin’s name for him- Chris “I’ll Have Another Drink Please” Matthews.

Matthews has said some pretty outrageous things, from saying that President Barack Obama gave him a thrill up his leg to saying Obama had a smile worth a million bucks. But he has said more serious, sexist remarks than that.

I am no fan of Hilary Clinton, but Matthews has said some pretty appalling things about her, as Jezebel illustrates:

Some of the names Matthews has called Ms. Clinton? “She Devil,” “Nurse Ratched,” “Madame Defarge.” (You know, the haggy, knitting, plotting character in A Tale Of Two Cities noted for being a ruthless villain?) It doesn’t end there, though. Matthews has also spouted that Clinton is “witchy,” “anti-male” and “uppity.” And he was one of the first to mock Ms. Clinton’s laugh, saying “what do you make of the cackle?” In his eyes, she’s Maleficent, a full-on Disney witch. Matthews has questioned whether a woman can lead: “[L]et’s talk about the troops… Will they take the orders?” and on another occasion, wondered, “Is she hemmed in by the fact that she’s a woman and can’t admit a mistake, or else the Republicans will say, ‘Oh, that’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind,’ or ‘another fickle woman’? Is her gender a problem in her ability to change her mind?” Because obviously, women can’t make up their minds. Ever! Clinton’s personal life isn’t even off-limits; Matthews has mused, “Is she a convincing mom?” Has Mr. Matthews ever asked if any of the male candidates look like convincing dads?

And as the Daily Caller notes, Matthews has referred to Congresswoman Michele Bachmann as a “balloonhead” numerous times as well as constantly referred to her as “this woman”.

Of course we can’t leave out Matthews calling Sarah Palin a “cuckoo clock” and a “mail ordered bride”.

Imagine Limbaugh saying any of those things about Michelle Obama. We would never hear the end of it!

Whatever your political ideology, the hypocrisy of the mainstream can clearly be seen it how it treats Limbaugh’s comments vs. those of Schultz, Sharpton and Matthews. My guess is that if you’re reading this, this is the first time you’ve seen the filthy comments made by these buffoons at MSNBC but yet you’ve heard the Limbaugh comment numerous times.

If you don’t like Rush Limbaugh, fine. If you think his comments regarding Fluke were terrible, fine. But be aware that what he has said pales in comparison to those made by hosts of MSNBC, and if Limbaugh deserves to be boycotted, then so does MSNBC.
