Respect Religion and Comedy – Boycott NBC

In response to Religious respect watch:

…last weekend “Saturday Night Live” gave us a laugh-riot skit called “Djesus Uncrossed,” in which the Lamb of God pulled out guns and began blowing away Romans in a orgy of graphic violence and implied profanity.

Repulsive but not surprising. We were discussing how far SNL has fallen in recent years, just last week, weren’t we? Their biggest sin isn’t even the left wing bias. It’s the lack of funny.

Ace keeps saying, and I wholeheartedly agree – it’s time to  BOYCOTT NBC. Can I get an AMEN?

Over at Big Journalism, Larry O’Conner has a story about the latest MSNBC deceptive edit. Daytime news anchor, Thomas Roberts set up a segment to suggest that Republicans are opposing Obama’s immigration plan not because they have real substantive differences with it, but because they have an irrational dislike of Obama: 

His question to his guest, Rep.Henry Cueller (D-TX) was, “Is this strictly because President Obama’sname is attached to it?”  

To set up his question, Roberts showed a clip of Rep. Ryan on ABCNews’ “This Week.”  The clip was meant to make it look like theWisconsin congressman was opposed to the bill simply due to the factthat the President is for it, and not on any substantive level. However, take a look at the clip.  MSNBC selectively edited Ryan in avery deceitful way.  The transcript of the Roberts edit is as follows:  

Ryan:  “Leaking this out does set things in the wrong direction …EDIT… This particular move, very counter-productive.”

That quote certainly helps Roberts’ premise, doesn’t it?

Head to Big Journalism to see what was edited out – basically Ryan’s very specific, policy related reasons as to why he’s opposed to Obama’s immigration plan.

But this is what Obama and his minions in the ObamaMedia do. Always – always – always question the motives of Obama’s critics. They can’t disagree because  they have honest, legitimate policy disagreements. It always has to be because of their crass politics, hatred of the poor,  racism, or for no other reason than they hate poor beleaguered Obama. 

Marco Rubio had very gently made that very point before he took that sip heard round the world in his speech following Obama’s SOTU speech.

There are valid reasons to be concerned about the President’s planto grow our government. But any time anyone opposes the President’sagenda, he and his allies usually respond by falsely attacking theirmotives.

When we point out that no matter how many job-killing laws we pass,our government can’t control the weather – he accuses us of wantingdirty water and dirty air.

When we suggest we strengthen our safety net programs by giving statesmore flexibility to manage them – he accuses us of wanting to leave theelderly and disabled to fend for themselves.

And tonight, he even criticized us for refusing to raise taxes todelay military cuts – cuts that were his idea in the first place.

But his favorite attack of all is that those who don’t agree with him – they only care about rich people.

Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood Igrew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees whodepend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to getup early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’reimmigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty incountries where the government dominated the economy.

The tax increases and the deficit spending you propose will hurtmiddle class families. It will cost them their raises. It will cost themtheir benefits. It may even cost some of them their jobs.

And it will hurt seniors because it does nothing to save Medicare and Social Security.

So Mr. President, I don’t oppose your plans because I want to protectthe rich. I oppose your plans because I want to protect my neighbors.

The MSM effectively “edited” that out of his speech by hyperventilating over his sip of water. Last week, CNN anchor Carol Costello said that her only takeaway from Rubio’s address was the water bottle moment.  And Van Jones heartily approved of that because Marco Rubio is a “dangerous conservative.” (Meaning effective and likable.)

“Rubio is dangerous for Democrats,” Jones saidcurtly as the chuckles from the CNN panel faded. “I’m so glad thatwe’re talking about him and we’re joking about him, because right whenhe reached for that water bottle he was reaching an emotional part ofthat speech which he stepped on.”

 Honestly, CNN should be boycotted too, as long a 9/11 truther who denounced the United States with his fellow STORM members only hours after the 9/11 attacks at a protest in Oakland, is a contributor.

I have a real problem with that.
