MSNBC Clown Scarborough to Sharpton After Ferguson Police Shootings: “This has got to be terribly frustrating to you”

Posted by on Mar 12, 2015 at 8:02 am

Jesus H. Christ, you’ve got to be kidding me. This jackhole has blood all over his hands and receives sympathetic treatment. Sure, let’s make him the victim.

Talk about sickeningly misplaced sympathies . . . Waking up to the news that two police officers had been shot during a protest in Ferguson, MO last night, and turning on Morning Joe, I expected the first interviews to be with family members of the wounded policemen, or  perhaps with the head of a police organization, condemning the outrage. Instead, there were Al Sharpton, and Marc Morial [of the National Urban League.]   And rather than focusing on the wounded policemen, Scarborough’s first line to Sharpton painted him as a victim: “this has got to be terribly frustrating to you.”

Even more outrageous was Morial’s statement that even after the resignation of several officials in Ferguson, the shootings show “that people want further change.”  Incredibly, Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, instead of bringing the focus back onto the victims, seconded Morial’s notion.

Readers, permit me a personal note.  Here at NewsBusters, our mission day in and day out is to chronicle liberal media bias.  Sometimes the subjects can be relatively minor, even humorous.  But the spectacle of today’s Morning Joe has left me truly outraged.

Sharpton says no one in his crowd would “condone” shooting policemen.  That’s awfully weak sauce. How about condemning it?

Sharpton and Morial were quick to suggest that there’s no evidence that the shooters were among the “protesters.”  But unless this was a very unlikely case of a random shooting, weren’t the shooters, by definition, “protesters?”

    Come on H8’ers. Lets not rush to judgment. While some of the protesters might have acted stupidly, lets remember most of the protesters were peaceful. After all, we can’t smear a group for the actions of one or two misguided persons. <sarc off

    The problem with Scarborough is that he works for NBC. Bastard knows where his bread is buttered. As the token Conservative, he has to be nice to his coworkers, even if they are rabble rousing race baiters with blood on their hands.

    I’m surprised that the Tea Party hasn’t been blamed for the shootings.

    Welcome to the post racial America that the stupid white leftists brought us by electing Obama….twice.

    I’m glad Ace linked to this…I was watching this morning as well and had the same reaction. They spent more time talking about “hands up, don’t shoot” and Wisconsin and Eric Gardner than we did about this actual shooting. If we’re going to draw links, why not draw links to the two NY cops who were executed by members of the “mostly peaceful protests”. Let’s start talking about how president race relations has created more of a divide in this country since he took office and started talking about his imaginary son.

    For Scarborough to let that nonsense go on without anything more than reading the report about the cops and offering no commentary is shameful.

    I’ve got some change for Rev. Al. How about paying your taxes FOR A CHANGE. And maybe not parachuting into every racial hotspot (real or imagined) to rip the scab off all the racial scars FOR A CHANGE. How about treating your fellow blacks like adults instead of like infantile victims FOR A CHANGE. How ’bout it, Al?
