Friday, November 19, 2004 | An American Milestone: MSNBC's Call to Genocide
On a widely-watched morning news show, the sidekick of the popular morning host called for the murder of all Israelis.
A couple of rights groups issued press releases, but other than that, there were no outcries of outrage in the media, on the internet, on the street. The press releases were resoundingly ignored.
The view expressed was so compliant with mainstream opinion that it made not a ripple?
How is such a thing possible? That in the United States, on a major cable network, an open call to genocide is issued, and left to stand, go unnoticed save for a couple of minor non-profits whose mission is essentially limited to sending out press releases when something is offensive to Israelis?
And now that you know about it, I bet you are going to write, fax, and call MSNBC and every one of their sponsors, and demand that all in any way complicit or responsible apologize and never work in television again, aren't you?
Maybe you can organize your office, your church, or book club, to send a letter of apology to Israel. Maybe it should be a bigger project than that. Your whole town. Your state.
At the very least, a citizen boycott of MSNBC sponsors until every single commentator on there apologizes. And offers free advertising to Israeli companies.
How is it possible that there is so reaction to this?
Well, it's unbelievable because it didn't happen.
Nobody on MSNBC called for killing all Israelis.
Maybe it was Mexicans.
No, Vicente Fox would have the Ambassador on the carpet and there would be massive demonstrations in several major cities.
African-Americans. There was a call to kill all African-Americans on MSNBC.
Hm, hard to think that would go unnoticed and unremarked.
Oh, yeah, I remember now.
The call was to kill all Palestinians. Here's the transcript.
DON IMUS: They're (the Palestinians) eating dirt and that fat pig wife
his is living in Paris.
COLLEAGUE: They’re all brainwashed, though.
That’s what it is. And they're
stupid, to begin with, but they’re brainwashed
now. Stinking animals. They
ought to drop the bomb right there, kill ‘em all
IMUS: Well, the problem is we have (reporter) Andrea (Mitchell)
don't want anything to happen to her.
COLLEAGUE: Oh, she's got
to get out. Andrea, get out and then drop the bomb
COLLEAGUE: Look at this. Animals. Animals!
Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage
had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage
propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
dailykos.comdespicable and literally mentally ill
