Why I Hate MSNBC **WARNING – This Video Contains Hate Filled Speech**

Hate is a strong word and I don’t like to ever say I hate something. As Christians, we’re forbidden to hate another person but sometimes I believe we’re justified to hate things – including actions. Well, one thing (or rather things) that I’ve come to hate is liberal news shows. It’s not that I just don’t care for them – I HATE them. I cannot stomach to watch them. When I watch them, I find myself getting worked into a frenzy at the stupidity being broadcast. So rather than frustrate myself, I simply exercise my remote button and turn the channel to something that doesn’t destroy brain cells as I watch it.

But yesterday, as I was channel surfing, I came across Keith Olbermann’s show on MSNBC. He was talking about the Tea Parties so I decided to watch it for a moment. Bad idea!! His guest on the show was an actress named Janeane Garofalo. I had never heard of her before and even after looking up her bio online I don’t think I recall ever seeing her in anything. I have no idea what makes her qualified to give political commentary but Olbermann seemed to value her opinion.

In the few minutes I listened to her speak, I believe I heard every lame, strawman argument ever used by liberals beginning with the “racists” canard. It was truly incredible; never would I have believed so many insults and lies could be spoken in so short a time and with such hubris. This girl was a truly gifted in spouting liberal spin. Perhaps that’s why Olbermann invited her.

Rather than attempt to describe her litany of pejoratives, I suggest you watch it for yourself. Be warned that it’s pretty intense.

One thing that struck me as I watched it is that Ms. Garofalo didn’t limit her remarks to just the protesters. She specifically aimed her remarks at all people who are conservative or Republican. Another thing I noticed is that as she ranted, Mr. Olbermann would chime in every now and then with a “yes” to signify his approval with what she was saying. They are truly kindred spirits.

I looked up the ratings of different news shows from the day of the Tea Party (4/15/2009). In Olbermann’s time slot, Bill O’Riley garnered more viewers than all other cable news shows combined. You would think that the producers of these shows would get the message but I guess their elitism blinds them to truth.

So, I once again have sworn myself off liberal news shows. These folks are extreme elitists who have no idea what the real world is like. But before I go I’ve resolved to do one thing. I’m going to force myself to watch an hour of Olbermann’s show and take not of who is advertising during his show. Then I’m going to email this video to every company and ask them if this is the kind of programming they support.

Wow! I know what the media is like and have experienced some of that hatred towards me personally. Amazing how they can say that those of us with conservative morales are filled with hate - all the while bashing us and making assumptions regarding our motivations.

I shouldn't be surprised but I must say my blood is boiling after watching that.

Thanks for visiting. I guess liberal media is nothing new but the brazenness of it still surprises me sometimes. Perhaps the thing that irks me the most is the hypocrisy of liberals. They claim to be the champions of tolerance yet they're the most intolerant folks I've ever met.

The Bible says that if were of the world, the world would love its own. But because we are not of the world, the world hates us. When I see folks like this, I'm reminded again how right the Bible is!

Thanks again for visiting. God bless!!

I definitely agree about the intolerant preaching tolerance. Back during the elections I posted a few things on my blog which brought in quite a bit of traffic. At one point I received a message from someone who had the gall to send me what the definition of a bigot was and called me one.

Interesting how I was posting my opinions on my personal blog without calling anyone names, but they searched out my blog, posted very nasty comments about me, my family and specifically about my 7 year old daughter and then send me a message about how a bigot is someone who is irrationally intolerant of those with differing beliefs.
