MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough claims Ferguson riots giving ammo to unnamed ‘right-wing nuts’
Joe Scarborough, the alleged “Republican” on MSNBC (a.k.a. the official network of insane liberal hate), decided Monday to falsely claim that the riots in Ferguson are giving unnamed “right-wing nuts” the ammo they need to attack politicians on both sides.
“These looters, some of whom may not even be from Ferguson, are giving right-wing nuts all of the ammunition they need to attack politicians on both sides who are trying to preach restraint, to do what, you know, Rand Paul said last week, and what — I bring him up just because Republicans are finally starting to talk out on this,” he said.
He continued: “Erick Erickson had a very good post last week saying, hey, conservatives, do you really have to wait for a white teenager to be shot to be horrified by what is going on in Ferguson?”
Of course, he didn’t name any of these people — quite probably because they don’t really exist, except in the alternate reality bubble that is MSNBC. And of course, only a “right-wing nut” would expect law and order and common sense to prevail…
A post at Truth Revolt notes:
Perhaps he needs to expand his reading list; many conservative writers wrote about being horrified about what was going on. One example: during the riot last Wednesday, Mary Katherine Ham wrote an article slamming militarization of police called “Free societies require more of police than turning tough situations into militarized zones.”
