MSNBC Moonbat: Opposing IRS Abuse Is Racist

Anyone with even the vaguest conception of how an honorable government would function is appalled at the abuses the IRS has heaped upon those it targets for political reasons, even while lavishly wasting the money it steals. In contrast, MSNBC host Martin Bashir is appalled at those who criticize the IRS — because they are racist:

“This strategy is nothing new, and it was explained way back in 1981 by Lee Atwater, who was Bush 41′s chief strategist. In a tape recording, Mr. Atwater revealed how Republicans evolved their language to achieve the same purpose. He said, ‘You start out in 1954 by saying ‘n-word, n-word, n-word.’ By 1968, you can’t say ‘n-word.’ That hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like ‘forced busing,’ ‘states rights’ and all that stuff and you’re getting so abstract. Now you’re talking about cutting taxes. ‘We want to cut this’ is much more abstract than even the busing thing and a hell of a lot more abstract than ‘n-word, n-word.’

“So this afternoon, we welcome the latest phrase in the lexicon of Republican attacks on this president — ‘the IRS,’ three letters that sound so innocent, but we know what you mean.”

You would think, having reached the last conceivable extreme of absurdity, the race club would finally stop making conservatives cringe. But then, I thought the same after the O.J. verdict, and look how much use liberals have gotten out of it since.

Bashir defends his friends from the racists.

    Wayciss! *Gasp* That is worse than a molester or a murderer!

    When Bashir was in the UK, the only professional gig he could get was as a celebrity reporter and a Princess Diana lackey.

    Despite his reinvention in the US he still can’t pull of gravitas and intellectualism.

    Who cares what he thinks.

    Where exactly does this puffy, pretentious piece of Bashit come from? How do they get away with giving all these newscaster jobs to hostile foreigners anyway?

    Aren’t they supposed to be able to prove that there wasn’t a single American who could have filled the position?

    What does AFTRA have to say about this?


  6. Ummah Gummah says:


    Where’s the brainy Tavis Smiley when we need him? At least he’s an American, if not in spirit then at least by birth.


  7. Ummah Gummah says:


    The fact that MSNBC puts a stinkin’ camel jockey in a lucrative job that any American with a 1.5 GPA and a hairdryer could do, speaks volumes about their contempt for the American People.

    What a dumbass Bashir the communist is. He’s obviously too stupid to realize, as are most liberals, that he who smelt it dealt it.

  14. Sam Adams says:

    Let’s make it easy for the left:

    Anything and everything that a conservative says is racist!!!

    In fact…there is no known form of speech for conservatives that liberals cannot call “racist.”

    As to my interest in anything that PMSMBC is saying….are they still broadcasting?

  18. Bashir (his real name is ‘Muhammad’, not Martin) is a muselmanic turd just like Zakaria, Cenk Uigur and a therefore a full blown agitprop for the Islamintern, the ummah. He’ll do anything, anything to push the Muselputz Obama along….

    Here’s the real story on that quote, along with the entire quote from Wikipedia. Maybe this was taken a bit out of context?

    Atwater on the Southern Strategy
    As a member of the Reagan administration in 1981, Atwater gave an anonymous interview to political scientist Alexander P. Lamis. Part of the interview was printed in Lamis’s book The Two-Party South, then reprinted inSouthern Politics in the 1990s with Atwater’s name revealed. Bob Herbert reported on the interview in the October 6, 2005, edition of The New York Times. On November 13, 2012, The Nation magazine released what it claimed to be audio of the full interview.[7] James Carter IV, grandson of former president Jimmy Carter, had asked and been granted access to these tapes by the widow of the recently deceased interviewer, Mr. Lamis. Atwater talked about the Republican Southern Strategy and Ronald Reagan’s version of it:

    Atwater: As to the whole Southern strategy that Harry S. Dent, Sr. and others put together in 1968, opposition to the Voting Rights Act would have been a central part of keeping the South. Now [the new Southern Strategy of Ronald Reagan] doesn’t have to do that. All you have to do to keep the South is for Reagan to run in place on the issues he’s campaigned on since 1964 and that’s fiscal conservatism, balancing the budget, cut taxes, you know, the whole cluster.

    Questioner: But the fact is, isn’t it, that Reagan does get to the Wallace voter and to the racist side of the Wallace voter by doing away with legal services, by cutting down on food stamps?

    Atwater: You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger” — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”[8][9]

    Pretty fair, eh? Almost as good as the media’s editing of Romney’s Wawa quote. Or George Zimmerman’s phone call. There has to be a time when good people have to look at garbage like this and say, “that’s not just spin, that’s lying”.
