New Tone… Newsweek Editor-in Chief Says Republicans Are “Suicide Bombers” (Video)

Here’s more of that “New Tone” we were promised…
Newsweek Editor-in-Chief Tina Brown called Republicans suicide bombers yesterday because they would not allow the democrats to raise taxes on American workers and spend more taxpayer dollars.
NewsBusters reported:

Newsweek’s Tina Brown compared congressional Republicans to suicide bombers on Wednesday’s Morning Joe after lamenting their refusal to agree to the tax hikes demanded by Democrats. “I think they’re the suicide bombers in all of this,” said Brown.

    That’s ok, I think shes a dirty whore for the Obama Administration.

    That’s OK I see everyone in Manhattanstan as a terrorist responsible for the worst attack on America in history. It’ll stay that way until we see some people going to prison and losing all their crap.

  • Wasn’t Newsweek sold for $1? You get what you pay for.

  • Finncrisp

    There is this notion that Government cannot under any circumstances provide better services for less money. It is what business does all the time to remain in business. This whiners need to start actually thinking about that aspect of the problem instead of literally throwing money instead of cognitive thought at the issue. Never raising the debt ceiling would be the best option of all.

  • Her transformation of NEWSWEEK from just crappy partisan news to pure science fiction could be considered an act of suicidal terrorism on what’s left of the shreds of cred for journalism.

    Yes, we have our guns to the head of American people, as we strap on our suicide bomb vests.

    And our middle name is Hussein.

    Folks do you recognize that the LEFT hates you and wants Communism yet??

  • KR

    I hope the slander/libel of conservatives & GOP get more and more outlandish.
    Maybe some of the sheeple will wake up.

  • Charlie

    Man, Newsweek must be really desperate for subscriptions. I wonder if they will make it out the year.

  • Rock

    The hateful rhetoric from the violent Tea Party. What? What, say that again, she’s a Lefty? Can I get a do over, please? Anyway you can scrub this, I thought I was at Huff Puff Blow.?

  • gus

    It’s gone beyond absurd.
    If Republicans don’t agree to borrow more money they have a gun to AMERICA’S head.
    If Republicans don’t raise taxes they are suicide bombers.

    Did I miss anything?
    Folks LIBTARDS are our enemies, what do you think they think of you? Do you get it yet??

  • Faye

    This is getting more and more bizarre with the rhetoric and dangerous name calling from the socialist democrats.
    I heard a caller on a conservative radio program practically breath fire as he called the host and other conservatives terrorist via Chris Matthew’s talking points.
    This is going to get ugly and when a few of these seriously deluded sheeple turn violent on innocent conservatives you know who the socialist msm will blame. The victims or Rush and Palin but never the perpetrator nor those who are spewing this hate filled talk.

  • StrangernFiction

    Demonize………..than do away with.

  • I am beginning to see that there are many people out there that see themselves as progressive. I see them as poor left wing nut jobs that need to spend some time at the funny farm and get well. They are splitting our nation with their idiotic nonsense. It is the economy that needs fixing! Calling Republicans terrible names only makes them look worse. When are they going to realize that the American public has awakened and are not believing their ranting. The American public is much more intelligent and schooled then it was 50 yrs ago. Citing the people as stupid sheep only will make them angry and give the Democrats a back lash they will never forget. We are broke! Democrats take heed to what you say about anyone. We do not easily forget being told we are stupid sheep.

  • mg4us

    Newsweek is a joke and Tina Brown is an Leftist Liar and whore. . .

    They should have asked her “Newsweek piled on the debt and looked what happened, so why are DemocRATs trying to do the same with the US economy? Isn’t the Republican approach to cutting spending a better option?”

    By why don’t “reporters’ call her on her language as not keeping in tone with the wishes of Dear Leader. . .oops, forgot, those are the wishes of “they bring a knife, we bring a gun” Obama.

    pardon if a repeat:

    ‘No drama’ Obama losing his cool

    [Something unexpected happened along the president’s breezy cruise
    to re-election. “No drama” Obama is suddenly looking about as calm as
    Jerry Lewis in a French film, about as brave as Ted Kennedy after an
    evening drive through Chappaquiddick. Witness Team Obama’s recent
    panicky behavior.]

    and please note: written by President Obama’s cousin??

    This is a person who, at minimum, should be reminded that the Republican recommendations for handling the current economy are not new, and have worked well in the past. Further, the Democratic recommendations have been tried, before, and resulted in much the same situation as we find now.

    “In 1920 the United States economy went into a sharp decline in the aftermath of the Great War. The Depression of 1920 is often forgotten because it is overshadowed by the Great Depression and the 1920 Depression lasted only a short time.”

    The 1920 Depression was short, and gave to the highest rate of employment this country has ever known. It was handled with tax and spending cuts.

    The Stock Market Bubble burst, and was handled by increased spending by the government, and led to the Great Depression, which did not dissipate until after WWII.

    After the Housing Bubble burst, the plan was to try spending on the scale of WWII in hopes of stimulating the economy and reproduce the results at the end of WWII. Instead, we got a lengthened depression and higher unemployment.

    Tax cuts in the Reagan and Bush administrations were not accompanied by the full measure of spending cuts, in part to satisfy the Democrats and more parochial Republican interests. There’s a lesson to be found in the response of the economy to both budgets.

    We can call it a nice try, but we cannot call the Stimulus a success. Demonizing the Republicans is not going to make the Stimulus a success.

    Calling everyone who recognizes merit in the Republican proposals a Conservative or a Racist is not going to make the Stimulus a success.

    Calling the Tea Parties “the radical wing of the Republican party” is not going to make the Stimulus a success.

  • Tina Brown was the *genius* who ran Princess Diana computer aged to 50 on the cover, next to a photo of Kate Middleton.

    Talk about ghoulish. The first time Lady Di’s image resulted in a precipitous sales drop. Brown’s a little high society terrorist in her own right.

  • Tina Brown should be required to disclose her funding. NEWSWEEK is practically pamphlet-sized trash and isn’t making money, so where do the funds to keep the lights on come from?

  • Magnum

    If this was an opinion of Fox News, the left would mandate a ban on hyperbole.

  • Molon Labe

    Just goes to prove that one dollar will buy you zero accuracy, lots of rage, more distortion, and lots of leftwing propoganda.

    The suckers who bought newsweek paid way tooooo much. Tina Brown would pay whore for 50 cents.

  • Leatherhelmet

    Tina, you are so freaking predictable.

  • Stuart

    And exactly why do we regard Tina Brown as a serious source of wisdom?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

  • MaxTruth

    And the head of the RNC response was ?????

  • Valerie

    *sigh* And one would hope the President of the United States of America would know the difference between tax rates and tax revenues.

    The argument the Republicans are making is that cuts in tax rates and in government spending during a recession can result in improved economic activity, improved employment figures, and increased tax REVENUES.

    They can point to the US economy’s response to the 1920 Recession (excellent results with tax plus spending cuts) and to the Reagan and Bush tax cuts (along with the failure to enact sufficient spending cuts) for a solid basis to conclude that their recommendations have merit.

    But if a person does not know the distinction between “rates” and “revenues” the entire discussion is going to sound like gibberish.

    Perhaps Tina Brown does not know the difference. Could somebody please ask her?

  • theBuckWheat

    Yet more evidence that liberals (er, now “progressives”) never say (or write) anything except it advances the meme agenda of the moment. When Rep. Giffords was shot, the meme agenda was to put the blame on Republicans and conservatives in general, and then it quickly moved to the “civility” meme which furthered the agenda of silencing conservatives or at least reducing the power in public policy debates.

    Everything has a half-life, and happily this meme’s half-life was about a week, after which the truth behind it starts to come out. When a meme is no longer effective, it can be discarded, then ignored and now it is trampled upon as if it had never been proposed.

  • WillofLa

    And where is all this getting rid of the “incendiary”, and “dangerous” rederic used by both sides that the liberals said caused that whacko liberal to shoot that Congresswoman in Pheonix? I thought the left was going to stop using words that had anything to do with acts of violence, like “Kill the bill”, “I hope he gets slaughtered in this election”,and such words that liberals claimed might make people think violent thoughts. Who the hell died and left liberals to decide what is right to think and what is wrong to think? Thought police, anyone? This woman reporter is another useful idiot. I don’t care how “respected” she’s supposed to be, she’s a liberal who doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about. And what about Republican’s standing up for themselves for a change. Let’s see some Republican’s address these to old farts who think they can come on TV and say things that aren’t true about what Republican’s want to do with the economy? They don’t know what they are talking about either. America won’t default if there is no debt ceiling raise allowed. America has more than enough money coming into the government every day to easily pay all the Social Security checks and the military pay, and whatever else. It’s that we don’t have the money to pay for all the NEW spending that the Democrats want to do. We are able to pay our bills and we won’t default. The Treasury says we won’t default, and even the President’s own economic advisers tell Obama America won’t default, but Obama will use any lie he can come up with regardless what his advisers tell him. Obama is a liar. Period! So don’t believe him or any Democrat who you hear telling you America will default. It won’t. What will happen is the Democrats won’t be able to borrow or have printed the money for any NEW spending that they have come up with since Obama has been in office.

  • DINORightMarie

    @Valerie: this is a man who continually refers to extending current tax rates as “tax cuts” and says we need to “cut tax spending” when he means eliminate tax exemptions. He is a moronic, naive, ignorant, clueless little man. I still can’t believe so many Americans voted for him in 2008.

    As for that “new tone” – Rush Limbaugh just pointed out the same thing, using this quote and two others from MSNBC to show how the latest JournOlist-coordinated talking point is Republicans=terrorists/suicide bombers/etc. Saying Republicans, Conservatives are terrorists……hmmmm…..sounds familiar…… Oh, I know! That report that Janet Napolitano published about Conservatives, Christians, and others similar are “right-wing extremist terrorists.” Remember that? Just more of that same toxic demonizing of “the enemy.”

    It is dangerous rhetoric, and it’s dangerous to allow it to stand. They are painting anyone who has a Conservative belief as equal to a person who wants to murder innocents, and destroy America, the West, Israel. Couple that with Obama’s Twitter Townhall un-civil rhetoric, then you see this is just more Alinsky, kicked up a notch. But it can be pulled back up to justify a whole lot of badness, if it is allowed to continue. (Just FYI – Obama said Republicans are using the debt “to hold a gun to the heads of Americans”at the Twitter Townhall…. And he says that Conservative rhetoric is “heated” and “inflammatory.” Just more empty rhetoric. Words, just words.) Pure evil.

    Please PLEASE work to vote this man, and these leftists OUT OF OFFICE in 2011 & 2012!!

  • eaglewingz08

    So does this mean it’s okay to question democrats’ patriotism and their approval by AQ?

  • redpillpatriot

    Tina Brown… I wouldn’t piss on you if you were on fire….. Hah, that visual put a smile on my face!

  • 14 trillion dollars and counting……………… will never be repaid, cannot be repaid, and will result in default, no matter if we raise the debt ceiling to buy some time.

    Time to prepare for the worst just to be safe. Obama may actually want a major crisis so that he can further implement the ‘change’ to insure that desperate Americans will accept a New World Order, international laws which usurp the constitution, and a new currency.

    Obama is a puppet of the Council on Foreign Relations. He listens to men like Soros, Summers, Brezinski, Rockefeller, and Sunstein.

    “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nation will accept the New World Order.”
    — David Rockefeller speaking at a UN Business Conference, Sept. 14, 1994

    Funny how the Left and Alqaeda sound so much alike.


    Why wasn’t she put on permanent leave.

  • GOP Mad Dog

    What Barnicle doesnt realize when he talks about a sneaker sale is that we arent forced to buy those sneakers at $29.99. We and employers DO have to pay those taxes. Their logic is always backwards economically.
