MSNBC host Martin Bashir forced to apologize after rant about 'defecating on Sarah Palin'

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

 

MSNBC host Martin Bashir has apologized today after he called Sarah Palin the country's 'resident dunce' and appeared to suggest that someone should defecate in her mouth

 

Bashir laid into the former Alaska governor last Friday after she controversially likened the U.S. borrowing from China to the slavery of African-Americans. 

 

Palin caused uproar after she told an Iowa crowd last week: 'Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that money comes due – and this isn’t racist, but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master.'

Martin Bashir: 'I Am Truly Sorry'
 
 

Although Palin's inflammatory remarks were roundly criticized, Bashir's takedown was viewed as entirely unacceptable.

 

On his talk show, Bashir suggested that Palin deserved the same treatment as described in the diary of a British overseer Thomas Thistlewood in 1756 - who on catching a slave stealing at a Jamaican plantation, ordered another man to defecate in his mouth.

 

 

Bashir also described in detail another horrendous punishment described in the slave master's diary - where a man was ordered to urinate in another's eyes and mouth. 

 

Bashir told viewers: 'I could go on, but you get the point... When Mrs. Palin invokes slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. 

 

'She confirms if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, she would be the outstanding candidate.'

At the beginning of his show on Monday, Bashir offered an 'unreserved' apology to Mrs Palin, her family and viewers for his remarks during Friday's broadcast. 

 

He said: 'I wanted to take this opportunity to say sorry to Mrs. Palin, and to also offer an unreserved apology to her friends and family, her supporters, our viewers, and anyone who may have heard what I said. My words were wholly unacceptable. 

 

'They were neither accurate, nor fair. They were unworthy of anyone who would claim to have an interest in politics, and they have brought shame upon my friends and colleagues at this network, none of whom were responsible for the things that I said.'

 

The remarks - and Bashir's contrite apology - has divided media commentators and viewers.

 

Twitter user @Lewispontifex posted today: 'Yes, @MartinBashir is a disgusting human being. America loves @SarahPalinUSA because she is a hero & a patriot!'

 

Former member of the UK parliament and author Louise Mensch tweeted: 'My God. The misogyny of Martin #Bashir against Sarah Palin. How unutterably disgusting. #MSNBC should fire him. #feminism'

 

However there were supporters for Bashir. @WayneASchneider wrote: 'Dear @MSNBC Why did you punish @MartinBashir for saying what needed to be said? @SarahPalinUSA gets way more respect than she's ever earned.'

But, what I don't get, is why did he apologize.  

 

I guess he's got to keep his job, has a family to feed, etc., etc.

 

But, FREAK Sarah Palin's race-baiting, ties to the Ku Klux Klan ass!!!!!

 

A race-baiting, social climbing, political whore like Sarah Palin deserves no damn apology for having the nerve to try to water down Slavery to being equivalent to being in debt in 21st century America.  

 

I really don't think there would be room for anyone to defecate in her mouth, since it's already filled with so much bullshit.  

 

This health care fluckery is driving these Europeans subbing as Americans insane.  The Klan has been in effect since 1865 and is still going strong.  They'[re in politics and the daggone police FORCE!!!  Sarah's just following her gang of fellow 'Mericans in their continuing HATRED against their former cotton pickers and bed warmers and forced fornicators.

 

There are people that get their sexual jollies on by doing what Martin said.  I happened to see a picture on an African website where someone was explaining what "White" people do.   Woman was receiving the man's feces like she was about to chomp on a pork chop!  I almost died for a minute.  Never forgot THAT sight; it wasn't a porn site either; I don't go to those types of sites.

 

Had Martin said that about an African woman, I doubt there'd have been an apology.  I don't believe he ever apologized about the fluckery he brought upon Michael Jackson those many years ago, in that documentary he displayed about him.

 

Martin appears Indian by way of England.  Martin in America, the only thing you can say about any "White" woman, even though she might look like either a bat or a corpse, is "How Beautiful She Is!"  That's it!!  Never, ever say anything derogatory or nasty!!!!!!!!!!

After thought, Mr. Bashir:  While you're heaping all this apologizing to the "woman of beauty" in every Republican's/"white" man's mind  and "extreme dumbness" in everyone else's, in "Merica, send one out to Michael's family, for that ungodly documentary you presented about him.  It's long overdue and I'm sure will be most greatly appreciated by them all.  Case closed, as far as I'm concerned.  Good Night!!
