Wow. Just wow.
First, I've never heard anyone call Obama anything close to this kind of stuff. Socialist? We have that in Obama's own words. Liberal? Even Olbermann would agree with that!
Here is the transcript of what Olbermann said:
Lawrence O’Donnell joins me next on the future of health care reform, but first we stay in Massachusetts for the first of tonight’s "Quick Comments." I wanted to apologize for calling Senator-elect Scott Brown an "irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, tea bagging, supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees." I’m sorry, I left out the word "sexist."All of this was from last night's show, in response to the backlash he received for comments about Scott Brown he made the night before:
And I left out the story of the day Brown, upset by online criticism from some students, went to the school and swore at the entire student body. I’m very sorry. For all the blowback from the right on this comment from people who regularly mutter worse things about Barack Obama in their sleep, when it came to the facts that I cited to paint this picture of this horrifically unqualified Senator-elect, we have heard nothing – no contrary evidence, no refutation, not even a plausible excuse. And to the point of excuse, it can be argued that Brown should have been given the benefit of the doubt after a supporter shouted at him that they should "shove a curling iron up Martha Coakley’s butt" that he did not hear that, that when Brown then said "we can do this," he was not responding to the lunatic in the crowd.
But the Boston Globe makes an unanswerable point about that. Even if Brown really didn’t hear it, where was his later statement decrying the obscenity and violence his supporter had suggested? Not only did Mr. Brown not offer even the mildest reproach, but when pressed for one by Senator Kerry, Brown replied only that people are tired of John Kerry’s partisan politics. In Senator-elect Brown, we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, sexist, ex-nude model, tea bagging supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees. And if he or you don’t like that characterization, my answer to you is simple: Disprove it because he hasn’t.
Lost in the angst about Obama and Coakley is the little-recognized real headline of this vote. You have heard Scott Brown speculating, talking out of his bare bottom, about whether or not the President of the United States was born out of wedlock. You have heard Scott Brown respond to the shout from a supporter that they should stick a curling iron into Ms. Coakley's rectum with the answer, "We can do this."This proves how detached from reality Olbermann really is. Keith thinks that a mere accusation on his part constitutes a fact. This is typical of liberals. Spend any amount of time on a political message forum and you'll get liberals that use this tactic all the time. It goes like this:
You may not have heard Scott Brown support a Constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, or describing two women having a child as being quote, "Just not normal." You may not have heard Scott Brown associating himself with the Tea Party movement, perhaps the saddest collection of people who don't want to admit why they really hate since the racists of the South in the sixties insisted they were really just concerned about states' rights. You may not of heard Scott Brown voting against paid leaves of absence for Massachusetts Red Cross workers who had gone to New York to help after 9/11.
In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees. In any other time in our history, this man would have been laughed off the stage as an unqualified and a disaster in the making by the most conservative of conservatives. Instead, the commonwealth of Massachusetts is close to sending this bad joke to the Senate of the United States.
LiberalPoster: Rush Limbaugh once said that homosexuals should be rounded up and gassed.Democrats live by the credo "say something enough and loud enough and eventually people will believe it". The fact is that Olbermann proved nothing with his accusations. And to come back the next night with this faux apology just shows how classless Olbermann is.
ConservativePoster: He did not, where are you getting that?
LiberalPoster: Yes he did, everyone knows it.
ConservativePoster: Come on that is completely unmerited.
LiberalPoster: Why don't you disprove that he said it instead of attacking me personally?
ConservativePoster: First, how did I attack you and second, how do you disprove that someone didn't say something? By posting everything they've ever said?
LiberalPoster: AHA! You admit you can't disprove that Rush said that. And your attack on me was calling me unmerited!
The burden of proof is on Olbermann, not on Scott Brown or the conservatives to disprove his accusations. Let me give you another illustration.
Keith Olbermann is a cross-dressing, jew hating, communist that kills puppies and kittens in horrific ways.There, I just stated several facts and it is now up to Keith Olbermann to disprove them! Keith needs to fight each of my "facts" and show why he isn't that or didn't do that.
Liberals. The country would be so much better without them!
