Alec Baldwin Fired from MSNBC for Anti-Gay Slurs … Baldwin Points Out Hypocrisy, Asks Why “Martin Bashir’s On the Air” with Comment He Made About Sarah Palin “On the Air”
Alec Balwin is out at MSNBC …
The NY Post is reporting that MSNBC has had it with Alec Baldwin and fired him. It would appear his latest unhinged rant was just the final excuse that MSNBC needed to whack Baldwin and his weak ratings show after just four episodes. My that was quick. It would appear though that according to reports that Baldwin was quite the PITA diva. Baldwin’s unhinged antics reported by the media would appear to have been common place at MSNBC as well by the classy Baldwin. But that is what happens when you screamed at a media photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.”
Just how bad must Baldwin truly have been to deal with for an uber-lib like him being given his walking slip by liberal BSNBC?
The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” was canceled Tuesday because of the actor’s foul-mouthed, homophobic rant at a New York Post photographer.
Baldwin’s spokesman Matthew Hiltzik and a rep for the cable channel said, “We are jointly confirming that ‘Up Late’ will not continue on MSNBC.” The MSNBC spokeswoman added, “This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best.”
Baldwin was suspended — supposedly for two weeks — after he screamed at a Post photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.” The “30 Rock” star was supposed to resume his weekly show Friday.
Besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Baldwin alienated colleagues when he demanded a separate makeup room that was being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray.
When Baldwin was told he couldn’t have his way, he allegedly bellowed at the top of his lungs, “I don’t give a f?-?-?k if she has cancer or not, I want that f?-?-?king makeup room.”
As reported at Page Six, Baldwin was impossible to work with and became more and more impossible to work with as his ratings sunk. What a combination, a male diva, a bomb of a show and a lib who did not want to work hard. There is a recipe for success. In typical Alec Baldwin style, he pretty much blamed others for the show’s demise as Baldwin blamed “the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy” for the show’s cancellation. Baldwin said, “They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”
A network source told Page Six’s Emily Smith, “The frustration set in several weeks ago. All Baldwin’s shows were unwatchable. He assumed it would be a success, and when he saw the ratings were a disaster, he stopped wanting to do a lot of work for a little audience.
“Baldwin found out that cable news is tough, and stopped making an effort,” said the source.
This is good, when LIBS attack each other It would appear that Alec Baldwin told the Gothamist that there seems to be just a little bit of hypocrisy as he was fired, yet Martin Bashir made an over the top comments about Sarah Palin on air and nothing happened to him, not even a suspension. C’mon man, you know better than that Alec … you can call a conservative woman every name in the book and wish anything upon her, as for gay slurs, that is strictly verboden.
“Martin Bashir’s on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made… if I called him ‘c*cksucking maggot’ or a ‘c*cksucking motherf*cker’… ‘faggot’ is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know. But you’ve got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy—Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan—they’re out there, they’ve got you. Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”
Sarah Palin Cancels Interview With NBC’s Matt Lauer In Protest of the Lack of Action Taken Against MSNBC’s Martin Bashir for His “Violent & Hateful Rhetoric”
Looks like Matt Lauer will not be getting extra frequent flyer miles to Wasilla, Alaska …
Sarah Palin has canceled an upcoming interview with ‘The Today Show’s’ Matt Lauer due to NBC’s lack of taking any action against MSNBC’s Martin Bashir for his vile, disgusting,”violent and hateful rhetoric”. Bashir was forced to apologized to Palin and his 10 viewers Monday for his comments in which he called “totally unacceptable,” when he said someone should $hit in her mouth and piss in her eyes for her comparison of slavery to the national debt. Hmm, can you really apologize from making such a comment? Palin is upset that Martin Bashir has received “ZERO” punishment from the network, not termination, not a suspension, not a slap on the wrist, nothing! Just a lame apology. If Brashir actually had the intellectual honesty and listened to Palin’s comments, she is 100% correct. The out of control $17 trillion debt and climbing will put our children and grandchildren in fiscal chains.
Hmm, who is it again that has a war on women? Just curious, where is NOW? Imagine if a male on FOX News said the same about a prominent Democrat woman, think they would still have a job? Maybe if more conservatives stopped doing interviews on NBC News channels because of the insane rantings of their moonbat affiliate MSNBC, the network would actually attempt to make MSNBC actually perform in a professional manner.
It’s no secret that Sarah Palin is mighty steamed at MSNBC and Martin Bashir over his despicable remarks about the abusive treatment he imagines for her.
And now she’s doing something about it.
The former Alaska governor was scheduled to sit down with Matt Lauer for a Christmas season interview. That’s now toast.
Palin has now canceled Lauer’s scheduled trip to Wasilla, a source close to her tells me. It’s not because Palin is upset with Lauer or the “Today” show, but as a protest against NBC for not taking action against Bashir. In fact, Palin once sat in as a “Today”co-host.
Tim Crawford, treasurer of Palin’s political action committee, had told NBC News President Deborah Turness and MSNBC President Phil Griffin that “Americans deserve to know that your network doesn’t condone violent and hateful rhetoric.”
Conservative Radio host Mark Levin tears apart Brashir, his comments and MSLSD
Conservatives 4 Palin have an update that former Clinton Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers has called for NBC to get rid of Bashir.
Umm, Did Democrat New York Senator Kirstin Gillibrand Just Admit “We All Knew” that Barack Obama was Misleading Americans on ObamaCare
Welcome to Obamaland where knowing lying and defrauding the American people is simply not being specific.
Check this out, New York Democrat Senator Kirstin Gillibrand just admitted on ABC’s ‘This Week’ that they all knew that Barack Obama was lying when he promised the American people, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period.” When asked by Martha Raddatz whether she had been mislead by Barack Obama, Gillibrand’s response was … “No, we all knew.”
New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said this morning on “This Week” that President Obama should have been more specific when he made his famous promise — which he subsequently backtracked on — that Americans who liked their health care plans could keep them under his signature health care law.
When asked a second time if she felt misled by the president, Gillibrand repeated, “He should have just been specific.”
“No, we all knew.
How do you like them apples America? This Democrat Senator just admitted that they all [Democrats] knew that people could not keep their insurance if they liked it. Kirstin Gillibrand thinks that Obama’s credibility issue is the implementation of “glitchy” Healthcare.gov, not the fact that he and the rest of Democrats knowingly lied to people. What Obama and Democrats did is called FRAUD!
However, its more than that. If they knew and knowing mislead the people as Alinsky principles teach them that the ends justify the means, it would mean they also partook in a conspiracy, collusion and a cover up. Democrats are kidding themselves if they think that they and Obama do not have a credibility problem with “We the People”. Democrats are in for a hell of a time in 2014.
Comments from video:
Raddatz: Do you feel misled by Obama?
Gillibrand: He should have been more specific. Because the point is if you are being offered a terrible health care plan that the minute you get sick you are going to have to go into bankruptcy. Those plans should never be offered. [But yet millions of Americans lost perfectly good healthcare plans, even Democrat Kirsten Powers.]
Raddatz: So were you misled?
Gillibrand: No, we all knew. The whole point of the plan is to cover things people need.
Watch Rep. Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) Spin Through Her Teeth, Stumble & Stammer as She Tries to Rewrite What She Previously Promised in Obamacare
Good grief, House Democrat Minority Leader sounded like Porky Pig this morning on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ as she struggled to defend her past words and promises.
It was not meant to be a trick or gotcha question, but David Gregory confounded Pelosi on NBC’s Meet the Press’ when she was asked a simple question regarding keeping her promises the the American People. But for moonbat Nancy Pelosi, she could not seem to even muster a lame apology like Obama. Not for this liberal progressive true believer. She did her best Harry Houdini trying to contort and twist out of a straight jacket and Bill Clinton in parsing her words. Isn’t it interesting that she now uses the words, “there isn’t anything in the law,” as opposed to, “If you like what you have, you can keep it.” I hardly think the millions of individuals who have lost their insurance coverage in California Ms. Pelosi care about semantics.
“Let me commend the president. He’s gracious and he’s taking responsibility but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything in the law that said if you like what had before 2010 you couldn’t keep it.”
But wait, that is not what Nancy Pelosi said in the past. From The Weekly Standard comes San Fran Nan getting busted in a lie. But then again what should we expect from Democrats who have been caught in a major lie with Obamacare making promises to the American people they very well knew was not true. What is amazing is that her web site even to this day says, “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”
“Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it?” Pelosi asked. “I would have if I’d ever met anybody who liked his or her plan. But that was not my experience.”
In fact, Pelosi said in 2009: “If you like what you have, you can keep it.” Pelosi’s website still states: “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”
Democratic Official Allan Brauer Wishes Death on Ted Cruz Aide’s Children from “Painful and Incurable Diseases” (Update: Brauer Resigns)
Are you kidding me, what would happen if a Republican had said the same?
As reported at the Washington Beacon, Allan Brauer, the communications chair for the Democratic Party of Sacramento, CA, told an aide to Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Tex.) on Friday that he hoped her children “die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.” Specificifally, Brauer wished the children of Amanda Carpenter, a speech writer for Ted Cruz, a slow painful deaths from incurable diseases. Hmm, not only is this reprehensible and completely uncalled for, I thought that children were supposed to be off limits? Not for this disgusting individual. But this is how unhinged the LEFT has become. The double standard is that they can wish death on someone’s child for who they disagree with politically. SICK! How on earth is this guy allowed to keep his job?
Read all the Tweets at Twitchy.
Seriously, this is the moronic rhetoric that is allowed? But in an Obama world with a liberal lapdog media, things like this are perfectly ok, but dare disagree with any of Obama’s policies and you are called a racist.
UPDATE I: Brauer apologizes for his disgusting comments. Personally, I believe it is far too late for any apology. You cannot put the genie back in the bottle. You can’t backtrack from comments like wishing death on somebodies child.
Say it isn’t so …
So much for that settled science that there is global warming, as reported at the UK Telegraph, there actually appears to be global cooling. Hmm, a cold Arctic summer has led to a record 60% increase in the ice cap, leading experts to predict a period of global cooling. The NRO has the 2012 statement from the BBC with their ridiculous global warming, Arctic sea predictions.
There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, they equivalent of almost a million square miles.
In a rebound from 2012′s record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.

Michigan State University Prof. William Penn Suspended from Teaching After Caught on Video Going on an Anti-Republican Tirade During Literature Class
More attempted liberal indoctrination at institutes of higher education …
After the below VIDEO going viral, Michigan State University was forced to suspend Prof. William Penn from teaching the rest of the semester. His rant against the GOP and his anti-Republican tirade was actually on the first day of class. Imagine what this class would have been after that? However, the even more amazing part of this was that this was not a political science class, it was a literature one. During the video, released by Campus Reform early this week, Penn expressing his political views saying that Republicans were “cheap” and “raped” the country. NICE.
Question: How often must this type of nonsense go on in colleges all across America but is never caught on video?
Michigan State University (MSU) administrators have suspended Prof. William Penn from teaching for the remainder of the semester, after he was caught on video going on an anti-Republican tirade on the very first day of his literature class.
Although Penn will not teach again this year, the school will continue to pay his salary, which is $146,510 according to MSU’s official website, a spokesman for the university told Campus Reform on Thursday evening.
In an email to students Thursday morning, Dean Karen Wurst of the College of Arts & Letters, cited his “inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive” comments.
“On Aug. 29, during your Literatures, Cultures, Identities course, Professor William Penn made comments he has acknowledged were inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected the learning environment,” she wrote. “Once MSU was made aware of the situation the Office of the Provost immediately began a review.”
“As a result, Penn’s duties have been reassigned, and he will not be teaching this semester,” she added. “A new instructor is being assigned to your course.”
So does this professor get fired for his actions? Not at all. As reported at The Daily Caller, The professor who called Republicans racists and rapists may have been relieved of his teaching duties for the rest of the semester, but he will still be paid in full by Michigan State University.
Campus Reform learned from an MSU spokesperson on Thursday that creative writing professor William Penn’s would still receive his annual salary of $146,510.
“His employment status has not changed; his teaching duties have been reassigned,” wrote Josiah Ryan, editor in chief of Campus Reform, in an email to The Daily Caller.
The Daily Caller is also reporting that the hate-filled professor also attached Christians and athletes. Wow, what a positive influence on the student body. And this guy had a teaching job how?
An eye-witness account from a student in the class revealed previously unreported details of Penn’s rant. According to sophomore Caroline Freeman, Penn also attacked Christians and athletes.
“He was talking about how Christians are dumb and don’t know what what they’re talking about and that they’re all blind followers,” said Freeman in a statement to MLive. “He was just tearing down a whole institution of belief, and it had nothing to do with class.”
He then turned on athletes.
“He said athletes were wasting their time trying to throw a ball in a hoop and how we glorify them for no reason,” she said. “He was calling people bad for playing football.”
Could MSNBC become any more of a joke? Looks like the Magic 8 Ball says … signs point to yes.
As reported by Mediaite, Alec Baldwin is going to host a prime time show on the MSNBC cable news channel. According to Mediaite, Bladwin will not be replacing any of the stellar prime time news talent that MSNBC as assembled, but instead will replace the Lockup prison documentary series that airs Friday evenings. Are you kidding, that is actually the only show worth watching on the pathetic network. It would appear that MSNBC is neither confirming or denying the rumor.
Is the only reason why anyone would watch this to see if he has a melt down on live TV? But alas there is no way they would allow such a show to be taped live.
War on woman? Take a good look what MSNBC thinks should host a show on their network … Alec Baldwin calls his 12 year old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig.”
Mediaite has learned from a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming that actor Alec Baldwin is getting his own weekly show in MSNBC’s primetime lineup.
According to our source, the so far untitled show will air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and will feature a large dose of Baldwin’s outspoken liberal politics.
The gig would make sense, considering Baldwin’s long history with the NBC family. He starred on the network’s award-winning sitcom 30 Rock for seven years, has frequently hosted Saturday Night Live, and hosted the network’s American airing of 2007?s Live Earth concert. Most important, Baldwin’s fiercely liberal and often combative political views make sense for a network that has become the place for progressive viewpoints on cable.
Twitchy is a flutter with some great tweets regarding Alec Baldwin to MSNBC. How comical, pathetic and telling is it that FOX News puts an intelligent, aspiring and up and coming female talent like Megyn Kelly to prime time on their network and MSNBC puts a tired, old cranky, child hating, gay bashing lunatic white man like Alec Baldwin on theirs? Really, is this how far this cable network has fallen? I am going to go out on a limb and say it will not be too long before Lock Up is back on Friday’s.
Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com could not have stated it any better, “If the story is true, it’s another desperate attempt by MSNBC to make Al Sharpton look like the rational one”. Amen brother!
White Maryland Man Beaten & Robbed by Three Black Men in Racially Motivated Hate Crime Attack Who Yelled …“This Is For Trayvon!”
Just curious, had George Zimmerman been found guilty, would “White” Hispanics been assaulting blacks in revenge attacks yelling, This is for George?
The vigilante Trayvon Martin mob was at it again this weekend. A Bethesda, Maryland white man was beaten and robbed by three black men. The 28 year old white man was attacked in the 1700 block of Euclid Street, Northwest, in Adams Morgan in an obvious racially motivated, bias, hate crime. The three thugs yelled “This is for Trayvon” as they beat and kicked the man. Who really thinks that these thugs watched or have any concept of the evidence presented during the George Zimmerman murder trial?
A note to Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, President Obama, Eric Holder, the New Black Panther Party, the NAACP, blacks, the MSM and Democrats … This is what a hate crime looks like where some one’s Civil Rights are violated!!!
A Bethesda man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning in Adams Morgan by three men who yelled, “This is for Trayvon Martin,” before attacking him, police said.
The incident is being investigated as a hate crime and robbery, according to D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali.
Three black men approached an adult white male from behind while he was walking in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW at 1:26 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Two of the men threw the victim to the ground and kicked him, Alali said. The three perpetrators then took the victim’s iPhone and wallet and fled.
NBC – Washington: The victim suffered lacerations to the face from the attack. Police said the suspects took the man’s wallet and iPhone. The police report lists the incident as robbery force violence, hate bias incident.
But this is what happens when you have an irresponsible MSM, President, Attorney General, faux Civil Rights agitators and Democrat party who insight the crowd and continue demands for justice. I hope Barack Obama and Eric Holder are happy with themselves as stated at NRO, where they “deliberately stoking resentment and tension, under the guise of leading a “national conversation” about race.”
Former NBA great Charles Barkley was 100% correct, when he said there are a lot of black racists as well.
Just curious, where is the outrage from the Civil Rights agitators over a white man getting the hell kicked out of him for revenge of the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict? Where is President calling for calm after he and Eric Holder threw gasoline on the racial fire?
Mark & Dana Michelle Gerstle, the Family Rescued by George Zimmerman Following SUV Rollover Crash in Florida Terrified They will Become Targets of Trayvon Martin Hate Mobs
An Obamanation where a heroic act goes unnoticed because of fear of the mob … This is despicable … I blame you President Barack Obama.
Mark and Dana Michelle Gerstle, the family that was rescued by George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin, have told friend that they are terrified that they might become targets of the pro-Trayvon, “no Justice, no Peace” mob following their roll-over crash where Zimmerman came to their aid. The family believes that if they go public with their story that George Zimmerman rescued them from their turned-over SUV and make him appear to be a hero, they will be targeted by the hate mobs. How sad and worse yet, sick is this? George Zimmerman pulled the Gerstles’ and their two young children from their SUV after it rolled over in Sanford, Florida near the busy I-4 motorway. However, they are afraid to get involved and state publicly that Zimmerman is a hero for fear of the backlash. It is unbelievable that this is where we have gotten in this country thanks the the race-baiting by civil rights agitators Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, the New Black Panther Party, the MSM and President Barack Hussein Obama.
The family rescued by George Zimmerman after a rollover crash in Florida are terrified they will become targets for hate mobs who have made death threats to the neighborhood vigilante.
Mark and Dana Michelle Gerstle told friends they do not want to talk publicly about Zimmerman for fear they will be accused of portraying him as a hero – and face a backlash from those who consider he got away with murder.
‘They are very grateful to Zimmerman for what he did, but they do not want to get involved,’ said a friend, who asked not to be named.
‘There is so much hatred directed towards him they have got to think about their own family. There are a lot of crazies out there. If they say anything in support of him it could backfire.’
The neighborhood watch volunteer, who to many is the most hated man in America after being acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin, helped save the family after a terrifying crash.
This poor family simply had the unfortunate circumstance of getting into an accident and then having George Zimmerman save them. The reaction from the unhinged LEFT and race-baiters … how dare Zimmerman do anything good. He can’t be a hero, he is the Devil. Zimmerman can’t be a hero, that does not play into the Left’s and racial agitators narrative that Zimmerman is an evil racist. However, the truth is that the Gerstle family was rescued by Zimmerman and for that they are most likely personally grateful. However, publicly they cannot say anything for fear of being attacked. I cannot say I do not blame them, but what a commentary of society today. Thank you Barack Obama for your lack of leadership, your lack of bringing people together and your lack of character. Instead of providing leadership, Obama brought back the past and fanned the flames of racism. But what should we expect from a life-long community agitator?
The Gerstle family from Port Orange, near Daytona Beach, have refused all requests to talk about their encounter with one of the most infamous men in America.
Mr Gerstle was in no mood to discuss Zimmerman when he arrived back at the family home today in a rental car.
He screamed at reporters from his garage saying: ‘Go away. I’ve got nothing to say.’
The family have lived in the single story, tan stucco home for the past 10 years.
Gerstle drove straight into his garage after speeding down the road past several TV trucks and film crews waiting to interview him.
He appeared enraged that media wanted to talk to him.
