Just when you think MSNBC has hit the bottom of the barrel, the network goes even lower. Martin Bashir, one of the most mean-spirited propagandist at MSNBC, forever established the network’s position as the official outlet of insane liberal hate.
Not only did he call Sarah Palin “America’s resident dunce” with a “long deceased mind,” he actually suggested someone defecate in her mouth and urinate in her eyes, Newsbusters reported Friday.

Noel Sheppard posted a transcript of the segment:
MARTIN BASHIR: It’s time now to clear the air. And we end this week in the way it began – with America’s resident dunce, Sarah Palin, scraping the barrel of her long deceased mind, and using her all-time favorite analogy in an attempt to sound intelligent about the national debt.

SARAH PALIN: Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children, and borrowing from China. When that note comes due – and this isn’t racist, so try it. Try it anyway. This isn’t racist. But it’s going to be like slavery when that note is due.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
BASHIR: It’lll be like slavery. Given her well-established reputation as a world class idiot, it’s hardly surprising that she should choose to mention slavery in a way that is abominable to anyone who knows anything about its barbaric history. So here’s an example.
One of the most comprehensive first-person accounts of slavery comes from the personal diary of a man called Thomas Thistlewood, who kept copious notes for 39 years. Thistlewood was the son of a tenant farmer who arrived on the island of Jamaica in April 1750, and assumed the position of overseer at a major plantation. What is most shocking about Thistlewood’s diary is not simply the fact that he assumes the right to own and possess other human beings, but is the sheer cruelty and brutality of his regime.
In 1756, he records that “A slave named Darby catched eating canes; had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector, another slave, s-h-i-t in his mouth.” This became known as Darby’s dose, a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owners savagery and inhumanity.
And he mentions a similar incident again in 1756, this time in relation to a man he refers to as Punch. “Flogged Punch well, and then washed and rubbed salt pickle, lime juice and bird pepper; made Negro Joe piss in his eyes and mouth.” I could go on, but you get the point.
When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.
“Readers are reminded that this isn’t Bill Maher or some libtalker like Mike Malloy,” Sheppard noted. “This is a host for a so-called cable news network saying these astonishingly vile things about a former governor and former vice presidential candidate.”
“Is there no limit to what people are allowed to say about conservatives on this disgrace of a network?” Sheppard asked.
In a word, no. In fact, if someone were to try this, Bashir would probably celebrate the attempt.
No doubt, if a conservative said anything anywhere near as vile as this, liberal heads would be exploding across the country.
But since it was uttered on MSNBC by a radical left-wing propagandist with a British accent, and the target was Sarah Palin, nothing will be said.
Perhaps conservatives should demand Bashir publicly apologize before being canned. Remember, MSNBC suspended Ed Schultz for calling Laura Ingraham a “right wing slut.” Now, the network is openly advocating violence against Sarah Palin.
Yes, Virginia, liberalism really is an ideology of insane hate and rage.
