This 57-Second Clip May Just Be the ‘Dumbest Ever’ in Television History

The false equivalency train has finally derailed on agenda-driven networks like MSNBC.

While the overarching point of the network’s guest Eric Bates – that one shouldn’t conflate Islamic terrorists with peaceful Muslims – is a sound one, that boat left the harbor a long time ago on MSNBC; it is a Titanic vessel of contradictory portmanteaus, barreling into the long, dark night of liberal apologia – right smack into the massive iceberg of reason.

Therefore, it’s hard to rebut Jonah Goldberg’s pregnant question, “The Dumbest 57 Seconds on TV?“, because the pretend-academic discourse is too emblematic of what passes for thoughtful commentary nowadays: A trio of vicious Islamic extremists murder four satirists since the former were offended at their cartoons, and the media rushes out to say, “Christians have their loonies, too!”

    Filing a lawsuit against Larry Flynt for defamation is THE EXACT SAME THING as murdering a bunch of people.
    Why? Because of those damn CHRISTIANS!

    “Peak Stupid”, is MSNBC there yet?

    MSNBC is an apologist for radical Islam.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      They really, really, are.

    • The Goat

      At least we goats don’t submit to their horrors willingly.

        Oh come on. You love the Religion of Penis.

  • Sharkibark

    So 35 years ago some ahole white christian sued over a cartoon and ultimately lost… and was never heard from again? Yeah I guess that applies here…

    Wrap it up and roll out the red carpet for Mohammed, it’s over. These assclowns don’t deserve the freedoms they have.

    The joke here is that if there really was any equivalency between Christians and the Muzz, the media would never dare mention it. If Christians had slaughtered a dozen MSNBC staffers with machine guns for broadcasting images of Piss Christ, nothing offensive to Christians would ever come out of that station again.

    “Christians have their loonies, too!”

    True, but Christianity doesn’t come with an instruction manual for killing anyone who doesn’t agree with it.

    “that one shouldn’t conflate Islamic terrorists with peaceful Muslims”
    Translation: don’t confuse the violent ones with the ones who share their aims but don’t have the stomach for jihad.
