Mika Brzezinski: “Rahm Emanuel, White House chief of staff and wannabe dictator’s butt boy, said today that he thinks—-- what? What’d I say? Something wrong?”

Mika Brzezinski: “President Obama’s long-time butt boy, Eric Holder, announced yesterday that he is resigning as Attorney General, saying that it had nothing to do with “Fast and Furious” or any other scandals that have plagued his tenure…… why are you looking at me like that, Joe? Stop it, you’re scaring me!”

Mika Brzezinski: “Former community organizer and wannabe President for Life Barack Obama’s favorite carpet-muncher and current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, announced that she has------ hello, can you hear me? Why has my Mike been shut off? Nobody turns off Mika’s Mike!”
Can you imagine if had uttered those lines instead of her attack on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo? Progressives would’ve been stunned and outraged. Yet, whatever opprobrium she would’ve had to deal with in those instances would still be as nothing compared to what would have happened to, say, Sean Hannity or Laura Ingraham if they had uttered the slur. Talk about hell to pay! They would have been fired by Fox News inside of a day. Advertisers by the score would’ve threatened to pull their sponsorships from their shows and the network as a whole. Leftists would be clamoring for them to be manacled and hung upside-down in a dank dungeon somewhere. Their families would’ve been threatened.
Tucker Carlson recently said the illegal immigrants coming across the southern border of the U.S. are making the country poorer and dirtier. That may not be politically correct, but it is largely true. Already, no fewer than 16 advertisers have left his show. How many advertisers have left “Morning Joe” over Mika’s ugly, preposterous comment? None that I am aware of as of this writing.
But no one is really interested in ruining Mika’s life for her “hate speech” and slander. The left believes that any attack it launches against its enemies, no matter how vicious and unfounded, is warranted— or at least forgivable. Conservatives believe wholeheartedly in free speech, and honestly don’t want to use coercion to silence anyone. As do I. Which leaves us between a rock and a hard place.
Conservatives are often denied the right to speak at various venues and on various platforms, but progressives are free to protest even their potential or censored speech, often in the vilest fashion.
So, go ahead . Ultimately, liberals will protect you… and conservatives will too.
But boy do you look like an ass.
