MSNBC Host Martin Bashir Attacks Sarah Palin – Says She “Bragged” About Being Checked Out By Secret Service (Video)

By: Rachel Pulaski

Last week MSNBC host Martin Bashir claimed Romney was going to condemn himself to “eternal damnation”  for “lying” to Republicans while using the Book of Mormon.

Now he’s out attacking Sarah Palin…
Bashir says Sarah Palin was “bragging” about being checked out by Secret Service because she openly condemned the Secret Service agent’s actions. 
Mediaite reported:

Mediaite reported:

It was a short, possibly throwaway, but potentially dangerous comment to make about a victim of sexism in the workplace. Dangerous because Bashir commands an audience by virtue of a perch in national media, one from which he has effectively whitewashed completely disrespectful and inappropriate behavior as something to “brag about.” No rational person considers being objectified while on the job– particularly as serious a job as campaign for second in command of the free world– something to “brag” about. Being open about the experience of being thoroughly disrespected as person in general and woman in particular is not bragging, and to use such language to describe what Palin is doing here is to shift the burden of responsibility upon her. It is a more subtle and, perhaps because of this, more acceptable version of the “she asked for it” argument  Keep reading

    Obama has ties to radicals plotting chaos for NATO summit

    [In a sign of what may be coming, residents of a Chicago condo building
    located near the site of next month’s NATO summit have been asked to
    leave for the event or risk being caught in a storm of rioters.

    WND first reported in August 2011 that radicals, some with ties to
    President Obama, were planning to riot during the NATO summit.

    FOX Chicago News reported the people living in the 17-floor Library Tower
    building at 520 South State Street were warned in a letter from condo
    management that “we are STRONGLY recommending that all residents find
    places to stay during the conference from May 18 through May 21.”

    The letter specifically warned of riots:

    “In the event of a riot or the potential of one near the building, all access
    doors will be locked including the garage door,” the letter continues. “For
    everyone’s safety, we will be instructing anyone in the building to stay in
    his or her unit.”]

    So she’s a pretty woman and those agents veddddy attractive. I think Martin Bashir is not used to normal people who find the opposite sex attractive. Mores the pitty.

    BG Won’t the rioters know the building is empty or at least left vulnerable to these thugs? Unreal!!!

  • CV1

    Sarah Palin was totally in bounds with her comments. There was absolutely no “brag” in anything she said or did. NOW should be right by her side, but wait, she’s a conservative!

  • an observer

    It is my hope that one of the first things President Romney does is to revoke Bashir’s green card and deport him back to London. In shackles.

    OT This is a very good video, titled “If I Wanted America to Fail.”

    People get all twisted up over everything these days. There are so many outrages, it is getting hard to keep score. That a SS agent “checked out” Palin was not professional conduct. That he posted it, was stupid. But my response to it all is, so what. Unless this guy was in Cartagena and was one involved in what is clearly, true misconduct, a reprimand and possibly some days off without pay would be punishment enough.

    Mark Steyn had a good article on this latest sexcapade.

  • Sasja

    I should have stated that it is “hard to keep track.”

    “true misconduct” should be “disgusting behavior”. My friends are editing my comments again. I hope this is not going to be one of those nights.

  • Sasja

    bg, #11. Having one of those nights, too?

  • USMC Thomas

    Selective editing without including the background is lying propaganda.

    Libturd’s sure have thin skins.

  • Practical Jane

    Just another example that Bashir is both a joke and an ass.

  • Tamalezebra

    This is why CNN continues to fall in the ratings. Bashir is a foreigner bashing American citizens he exudes turn-off-ability.

    Well, it is official this administration has lost their ever loving mind. This agent posted pictures on his phone and said: “I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean? Now, he was suppose to be protecting Governor Sarah Palin and she has ever right to call him out and moreover, she should testify if called on because her life could have been in danger.

    These Secret Service agents need to be CHECKED OUT BY SOMEONE WHO IS NOT SOME MISFIT. I almost could guarantee that these sleaze bag agent have done other things and I hope that Issa will investigate them thoroughly.

    Carney is a runt. And for him to weigh in is a disgrace. They need to shut up or put up. They are interfering NOW? When Sarah comes out and speaks about the Service member who is a disgrace to his profession.
