The Ed Show
If global-warming bedwetters have such an ironclad case, why do they so often fudge on the facts?
Case in point: MSNBC action hero Ed Schultz, braying mouthpiece for The Ed Show, yesterday making a dubious claim while doing his part to malign GOP Sen. Ted Cruz on the day he launched his bid for the presidency.
Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson, himself an ordained Baptist preacher, was critical of black legislators and clergy who surrounded disgraced frat boy Levi Pettit at a March 25 press conference in which he apologized for his now-infamous racist chant about lynched blacks.
Odd indeed that Ed Schultz is not proposing this for police where he lives.
Never one to refrain from embracing a dumb idea, Schultz doubled down on one last week in response to a Justice Department report criticizing police in Ferguson, Mo., for racial bias in law enforcement -- the MSNBC action hero made the novel suggestion that Ferguson police, or at least "some" of them, should disarm.
Could you use some "Hill-arity" after a long day? On the Ed Show, Barbara Boxer claimed Republicans are going after Hillary "because they know she's exciting the public." Right. For good measure, Boxer said that she "unequivocally" trusts Hillary.
David Corn of way-left Mother Jones was surprisingly skeptical, saying that "whether Barbara Boxer trusts her or not," Hillary critics have a point because she "tainted the chain of custody."
Who said the Hillary email story is "a lot ado about nothing": a. Mika Brzezinski; b. Lawrence O'Donnell; or c. Michael Steele?
You'd be forgiven for choosing a. or b., but it turns out that Mika said that the way Hillary handled the matter "wasn't honest" and O'Donnell said that Hillary's email system was set up "to defy" the Freedom of Information Act. The correct answer is indeed c., Michael Steele. The former chairman of the Republican National Committee said it on today's Ed Show.
Liberal MSNBC anchor Ed Schultz on Tuesday predictably went on the offensive, dismissing interest in Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal as nothing more than a "Benghazi witch hunt part 2." He introduced a segment on the topic by explaining that, as Secretary of State, Clinton used a personal e-mail account. Schultz sneered, "I got one word for you here, Benghazi."
In a classic example of phony political jujitsu, an MSNBC contributor has tried to turn the patriotism issue back against Republicans. Appearing on today's Ed Show, Steve Clemons attacked the "patriotism" of GOP congressional leaders, accusing them of "undermining the security of the nation."
This because Republicans have attached amendments to the DHS funding bill denying funds for President Obama's executive amnesty. Of course neither Clemons nor Schultz revealed that in a potential DHS "shutdown," all essential personnel, including those at TSA, Customs and Border, Secret Service, FEMA and Coast Guard, would continue to work. Only non-essential personnel, mainly office workers, would be furloughed.
Holy schnikes: was that really Ed Schultz, or has the soul of Norman Schwarzkopf suddenly assumed control of the MSNBC host's body?
On his show this afternoon, Schultz—discussing the latest ISIS outrages—stunningly declared that we are in a "religious war" in which we haven't been "strong enough," and repeatedly raised the possibility that ground troops might be necessary to defeat ISIS.
Ed Schultz is learning so much about the American Revolution from its cartoonish depiction via the History Channel's Sons of Liberty. And while he is so engaged, Schultz might want to crack open his dust-covered copy of the Constitution.
The liberal podcaster and MSNBC action hero has been on a tear, scarcely letting a waking hour pass without denouncing the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that he initially supported until sticking his finger in the wind and realizing that the overwrought leftists who comprise his audience were blowing plenty of hot air in the opposite direction.
A furious Ed Schultz on Thursday raged over the fact that only 36 Senate Democrats opposed the Keystone pipeline in a vote. Nine defections contributed to the bill passing the Senate. Schultz sneered, “But what a sad moment for Democrats if they're concerned about climate change…The Democrats can be bought.”
Ed Schultz on Monday bashed American Sniper as "disturbing" and contributing to the culture of "normalizing Islamophobia." The MSNBC anchor warned that the late Chris Kyle was "far more complicated than the hero portrayed in Eastwood's movie."
Has Ed Schultz watched The Manchurian Candidate one time too many? On his MSNBC show this evening, Ed tried to pin a wacky conspiracy theory on conservatives. According to Schultz: conservatives are "trying to get Americans to buy into this is if you're a Muslim and you're here in the united States, you're a plant." So conservatives are trying to convince Americans that Dearborn, Michigan is one big sleeper cell? Really, Ed? Got any evidence to support your fevered accusation?
