Nice Deb comments on the irony of how MSNBC’s latest insanity — an idiotic rant by host Dylan Ratigan about how the Tea Party is evil, racist, homophobic, eats babies, etc. — has massively increased the network’s visibility. At least on YouTube.
This is what’s so nice about YouTube; it allows you to view these mutants on MSNBC without ever having to tune into their station. Which I avoid doing at all costs.
The video clip of Ratigan ranting insanely about the NAZI RACISTS at the tea parties went viral, and became the Most Viewed News/Politics video of the day. It even became the 26th most popular clip on YouTube as a whole.
Yes, the delicious irony. This clip has proven so popular, yet MSNBCs ratings continue to slide into the depths of Tartarus.
And I must say, rabid leftists screaming, ranting, and foaming at the mouth about the alleged anger and hatred of the evil, horrible, racist, homophobic, terrorist, kitten-killing teabaggers! ™ never gets old. Nothing is more amusing than people getting angry while accusing other people of being angry.
And of course who benefits the most from MSNBC’s crazy? Fox News:
Deb also brings up another good point:
Guys like this Ratigan fellow, Olbermann, Max Blumenthol, and the entire Media Matters stable, who smear their political adversaries with charges of racism at the drop of a hat…do they realize that they’re like the boy who cried wolf? Do they realize that while they charge their political enemies with racism (sexism, homophobia, Nazism, baby-eating…) because they disagree with our politics, and want to destroy us, real examples of racism etc. are undermined?
If I can be called a racist simply because I think that Obama is spending too much, how serious are people likely to take claims of racism that are legitimate?
