The Ed Schultz Self-Beclowning

Posted by on Apr 01, 2015 at 7:45 am

As MSNBC continues into a Germanwings-style ratings death plunge, along comes Captain Ed Schultz to help finish off the former news network. If you ever needed an example of liberal fascism in one video clip, this is a must watch. The low-rated blowhard had on Ryan Anderson from the Heritage Foundation Tuesday, ostensibly to discuss the latest liberal fauxrage taking place in Indiana. It did not go too well.

After appearing on Monday’s All In on MSNBC, The Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Anderson again ventured into hostile territory by joining the Tuesday edition of The Ed Show to discuss Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Needless to say, liberal host Ed Schultz did not take Anderson’s position and usage of facts very well.

At various points during the nearly eight-and-a-half-minute segment, Schultz cut Anderson’s microphone, accused him of not wanting to “have a civil conversation,” and declared those who share Anderson’s position on the Indiana law “need to be counseled up in a big way.”

The frothing bully claimed he wanted a civil conversation, then proceeded to cut Anderson’s mic off. Lean forward, yo!

SCHULTZ: You’re not going to let me filibuster. We’re going to have a conversation on this. Mr. Katz –

ANDERSON: You just slandered the governor. You called him a homophobe. I think that’s really inappropriate.

SCHULTZ: Cut his mic off. Cut his mic off. I’m not – I gave him a chance to – we’ll bring him back if he wants to be courteous.

Sure, cut the guy off and welcome him back is he wants to be courteous.

Here’s the relevant portion of the “debate” with Schultz.

Realizing how awful he looked, Schultz bravely had the mic turned back on, but the damage was done:

It’s only a matter of time until Schultz is canned by MSNBC, at which time he’ll blame rightwing bullies, or something.

    “A horse’s ass is a horse’s ass, of course, of course, And no one can talk to a horse’s ass of course
    That is, of course, unless the horse’s ass is the famous Mr. Ed.

    Go right to the source and ask the horse’s ass
    He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse.
    He’s always on a steady course.
    Talk to Mr. Ed.”

    I was going to say – Tresspassers Won beat me to it.

    Ed Schultz embarrasses himself – why is this considered news?
