Is MSNBC fomenting violence against conservatives? Mediaite reported on Wednesday that MSNBC host Ed Schultz posted a poll that asked: “Are conservatives the new confederates?”
The results, which reflect the political makeup of MSNBC’s liberal audience, overwhelmingly said “yes,” with over 72 percent of participants agreeing with Schultz.
A total of 2,798 people participated in Schultz’s poll, with 2,036 voting yes, and only 762 voting no.
According to Josh Feldman, Schultz was inspired by Jesse Jackson, who called the Tea Party the “resurrection of the Confederacy.”
Schultz, however, decided to lump all conservatives in his broad-brush poll which was a clear and obvious attempt to dehumanize those to the right of Josef Stalin, a favorite tactic employed by MSNBC hosts.
The comments left by those who participated also says a great deal about Schultz’s audience.
“ED IS the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” of the political system ! You GO ED – Hunt These Obstructors and SOCIOPATHS Down !” one person exclaimed.
“‘Modern’ conservatives = The Neo-Confederacy,” added another MSNBC viewer.
“No, that would be an insult to Confederates everywhere. Traitors would be the correct term,” said another Schultz fan, insinuating that conservatives should be shot and killed.
In Nov. 2010, we first put forward the notion that MSNBC is the official network of insane liberal hate.
That same month, we asked if the far-left wing network is good for America and concluded that it was, as it gives Americans a look at the liberal mindset.
“On practically any given day, one is treated to a steady diet of unhinged, liberal anger and rage from host after host,” we said.
Schultz, for example, got a good laugh over the idea of a dog collar that would electrocute Glenn Beck to death.
It seems MSNBC is set to maintain its status as the official network of insane liberal hate, even as it continues to lose viewers.
