Now that the disgusting degenerate Martin Bashir has been canned by low-rated MSNBC, a report today reveals he’s got a history with derogatory comments toward women. Which makes you wonder why on earth the clowns at MSNBC saw fit to put him on the air. Well, his crude leftist politics likely outweighed his lewd behavior and the left doesn’t mind degrading behavior toward women, so long as the one doing it is a liberal in good standing.
Turns out Martin Bashir’s mouth has gotten him into trouble before.
Bashir resigned from MSNBC Wednesday over the sliming of Sarah Palin after meeting with the network’s president, Phil Griffin.
But this isn’t the first time that Bashir has had to apologize for his remarks about a woman. While working for ABC News in the summer of 2008, he was addressing an Asian American Journalists Association convention in Chicago, with his “20/20” colleague Juju Chang also on stage. He began commenting on her dress.
As New York magazine reported in a brief and little-noticed item, Bashir said that “I’m happy to be in the midst of so many Asian babes.” And, he added, “I’m happy that the podium covers me from the waist down.” He said a speech should be “like a dress on a a beautiful woman — long enough to cover the important parts and short enough to keep your interest — like my colleague Juju’s.” Some audience members booed, the magazine said.
A little digging reveals that ABC quietly suspended Bashir after the incident. He wrote an apology to the Asian-American group, saying: “Upon reflection, it was a tasteless remark that I now bitterly regret. I … hope that the continuing work of the organization will not be harmed or undermined by my moment of stupidity.”
Amazing how many “moments of stupidity” these lefties are allowed before they’re shunned by polite society. Let any conservative utter something so idiotic and they’d be gone within minutes, otherwise they’d be deluged with protests by the so-called women’s groups on the left. You can be assured this boob will have another job before long (hello, Al Jazeera!) since his ability to bash the right outweighs any other concerns.
The video of Bashir’s remarks seems to have been scrubbed, but here’s an audio snippet:
