Sarah Palin Reacts To Bashir’s Resignation From MSNBC: “It’s Par For The Course”

Yesterday, MSNBC host Martin Bashir announced that he is resigning from the network as a result of his vulgar rant against Sarah Palin.

Palin didn’t wait long to react to Bashir’s exit from MSNBC on Fox and Friends.

The former Alaskan Gov. explained that when you’re a conservative in the public eye, as she is, nasty comments are to be expected. She said, “Six years ago, I probably would have been personally hurt by such an attack. Now, no, I look at it as kind of par for the course.”

She said that she hopes that vulgar and personal attacks do not discourage others from getting out there and “trying to change the world.”

“My role is to accept his apology and be humble enough to accept it and move on,” Palin said. “But I just hope that unprovoked attacks like that don’t result in people being hesitant to jump in the arena anyway. To get out and there and serve the public or start a business. Or, commit themselves to changing within their family, their community, their world; doing whatever they can despite the fact that in this world, you are going to be hurt. And attacks will come your way. I just hope that an attack like that doesn’t make people hesitate.”

Although Palin said she did not let Bashir’s comments get to her personally, she added it was “refreshing” that many individuals in the public eye came out in support of Bashir’s firing due to his comments.

    The Divine Sarah is a fine lady, which is why we like her so much. She is very forgiving of what should be satisfied by ‘pistols for two, coffee for one’ or a horsewhipping right on the set, with the cameras rolling. Out here in the real world, we wonder why there have not been horsewhippings of people like Letterman, Maher, Bashir,, and a lot of others that have slurred the Divine Sarah and her daughters. ‘Pistols for two, coffee for one’? Well, Mama Grizzly might prefer to use claws and teeth—-if she could catch these contemptible creatures. A blessed Advent and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, Sarah! You, too, Kristin.

    Martin Bashir, Ed Schultz, Bill Maher, Rachel Maddow, etc are all emblematic of what the radical left really stands for. These over-paid, ethically challenged miscreants represent and live by that genre of hateful rhetoric. Rhetoric that has no place in constructive human in discourse. Their counterproductive and vile speech fixes nothing! However, with that being said, we are beginning to see what their real goals and it has never been about making life better in the United States (or the world for that matter) but rather it is about destroying American society by pitting one “minority” group against another; haves vs have-nots, men vs women, blacks vs whites, rich vs poor, etc. All according to Antonio Gramsci’s and Saul Alinsky’s design.

    Spewing hate and getting paid a goodly amount of money doing it demonstrates the height of irresponsible and destructive commentary that these people employ. Miscreants such as these not only spew their vile, hateful rhetoric but also they never bother to consider the immense harm that they are doing to their own cause until, like Bashir, they get canned and they no longer earn their “blood” money.

    That must be a very painful surprise for Bashir. Perhaps now, these idiots will think twice about the downstream effects of spewing such hate speech thinking that their “Progressive” network will allow just about anything (even though no one watches their show). Truth be told, if these “entertainers” paid a little more attention to acting with integrity and intelligence and not slavishly adhering to their “Progressive” template of lies they (and we all) would be better off.

    This is also an example of how propaganda was developed and used by the likes of Hitler, Stalin and other despots to promote their evil agendas and, in Hitler’s case, bring about the attacks on groups that they had no use for. Put Schultz and Bashir next to the Nazis propaganda shills of the time and you would see precious little difference in style or content. Can visualize how they would do everything in their power to help initiate a Cristal Nocht(sp?) on behalf of our own tyrannical leader?

    These folks would be right at home working for such despots bringing this brand of lowbrow “tabloid” hate speech that through just recently, has been tacitly supported by their outlets including MSNBC, CNN, HBO, etc. Perhaps now that viewers are waking up and feeling the effects of these vile attacks that the offending networks are starting to find their “corporate” consciences.

    By the way, where have the “feminists” been hiding during these many other similar anti-woman attacks???!. I thought that it was their task in life to protect all women. I guess I guess that I was wrong being that they are only part of the Gramsci-ite cabal of “Good little Nazis” willing to do whatever their anointed leaders dictates. Who cares if a woman is destroyed?! These groups openly support idiots like Bashir when attacking a woman who doesn’t fit their “ideal” especially with his vile, integrity challenged manner. However, I think we should all thank these “talking heads” because they have given us a great glimpse into what Progressivism really stands for.
