On July 15, MSNBC, the official network of insane bloodthirsty liberal rage, hate, and stupid lying liberal propaganda, marked its 25th anniversary. As Tucker Carlson — a former host on the network — noted, it was not always the cauldron of liberal hatred it is today:
So, MSNBC, the TV network not the schedule three pharmaceutical, has a birthday today. That channel is 25 years old. It’s hard to believe, especially for those of us who remember the day was born. And yet even at this advanced age there are a lot of misconceptions about MSNBC.
The first is that all of its anchors have been accused by a sitting president of murdering a young woman in a congressional office. That’s not true, it’s a myth and we like to dispel it once and for all right now. The second misperception about MSNBC is that it has always been some sort of left-wing revolutionary channel. Leon Trotsky TV. And that’s not true either.
From its first hours, MSNBC was a purely corporate project. The MS stands for Microsoft. The NBC, for what was then a division of General Electric. So, the channel began as a merger of business titans and fundamentally it is still one big HR department. After the 2004 presidential elections, the geniuses in the programming office decided to pivot and make MSNBC more populist or something. They weren’t sure exactly what they want to but they hired a new prime-time anchor anyway.
The network, however, turned into a rabid left-wing propaganda outlet spreading pretty much nothing but hatred and division — all of it aimed at conservatives. We’ve covered quite a bit of it here, and we’re not alone in that.
On Saturday, Newsbusters’ Scott Whitlock marked the anniversary with videos of some of the most outrageous and vile moments of the network’s history.
In his first entry, Whitlock noted:
MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin, who now has a daytime talk show on the network, shocked even the liberal hosts of Morning Joe on January 29, 2015 when he slimed Chris Kyle, the real American Sniper, as a “racist” who went on “killing sprees.”
Here’s a partial transcript:
AYMAN MOHYELDIN: A lot of his stories when he was back home in Texas, a lot of his own personal opinions about what he was doing in Iraq, how he viewed Iraqis. Some of what people have described as his racist tendencies towards Iraqis and Muslims when he was going on some of these, you know, killing sprees in Iraq on assignment. So I think there are issues —
SCARBOROUGH: Wait, wait. Killing sprees? Chris Kyle was going on killing sprees?
MOHYELDIN: When he was involved in his — on assignments in terms of what he was doing. A lot of the description that has come out from his book and some of the terminology that he has used, people have described as racist.
Next up was Chris Matthews, who is no longer with the network. As Whitlock noted, in 2009, he said that “someone’s going to jam a C02 pellet into Rush [Limbaugh’s] head.” He also called Newt Gingrich a satanic “car bomber.”
“You guys see Live and Let Die, the great Bond film with Yaphet Kotto as the bad guy, Mr. Big? In the end they jam a big CO2 pellet in his face and he blew up. I have to tell you, Rush Limbaugh is looking more and more like Mr. Big, and at some point somebody’s going to jam a CO2 pellet into his head and he’s going to explode like a giant blimp. That day may come. Not yet. But we’ll be there to watch. I think he’s Mr. Big, I think Yaphet Kotto. Are you watching, Rush?”

“But he [Newt Gingrich] looks like a car bomber. He looks like a car bomber. Clarence, he looks like a car bomber. He’s got that crazy Mephistophelian grin of his. He looks like he loves torturing. Look at the guy! I mean this, this is not the face of a president.”

He reminded us of Keith Olbermann, perhaps the most unhinged bloodthirsty hatemonger to show his face on television. In October 2007, he said this in Playboy:
Al Qaeda really hurt us, but not as much as Rupert Murdoch has hurt us, particularly in the case of Fox News. Fox News is worse than Al Qaeda – worse for our society. It’s as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was.
Then there was Chris Hayes, who, on Memorial Day 2012, said he is “uncomfortable” with calling fallen soldiers “heroes.” He apologized two days later.
I think it is very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words “heroes.” Um, and, ah, ah, why do I feel so comfortable [sic] about the word “hero”? I feel comfortable, ah, uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war.
As a reminder, he also claimed ISIS was engaged in a “heroic romantic struggle.”
Then there’s Martin Bashir, who, on November 15, 2013, suggested that someone defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth.
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.
“Twenty five years later, MSNBC is the home of left-wing hate. One can only imagine what the future will bring for the liberal cable network,” Whitlock concluded.
He’s right about that. Kudos to Whitlock and the folks at Newsbusters for their work. Thanks to them, those of us who wish to remain sane don’t have to watch MSNBC.
And yes, MSNBC remains the official network of insane bloodthirsty liberal rage, hate, and stupid lying liberal propaganda.
