Martin Bashir was fired from MSNBC today for daring to make a cogent, albeit crass, point about Sarah Palin. Actually he was not crass, he was merely lampooning her own crass comparison of the federal debt to slavery. This woman is a dangerous racist idiot with presidential pretensions and she needs to be called out publicly on her stupidity. Here is the video of the “offensive” thing Bashir said…I still cannot believe that Martin Bashir can make a good point and get fired and Hannity can lie all day long and get a raise. Disgusting. And they will probably replace him with some “moderate” talking head. Yuck.
So basically Martin Bashir was fired for making a joke MSNBC assumed its own audience was too stupid to understand. Shame on MSNBC. Shame on them. Sarah Palin and her ilk represent the death throes of a white conservative US that is fearful of the minority population, the workers, the women, and the immigrants that they have exploited and abused for decades. Their chickens are coming home to roost and you better expect more racist analogies, fascistic policy proposals and appeals to the lowest common denominator. All the US Right has left is its fear, its hate, its weapons, its racism, its money and its religion. They are dying out, slowly buy steadily, and they do not want to let go of the controls. Palin represents the thuggish fascism they have come to embrace as a last, best, great white hope to save a US that only ever existed in their minds. Bashir is just the latest victim of their feverish hate and stupidity. He will not be the last.
