HYPOCRITE: Bigoted MSNBC Host Accuses Others of Being Bigoted

In case anybody was questioning, MSNBC’s weekend programming is not any much less unhinged than its weekday counterpart. For those who want proof of this, look no farther than MSNBC’s backbencher Sunday night host of The Mehdi Hasan Present, Mehdi Hasan. 

Hasan began off his present Sunday with the information that Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) got here out in opposition to his get together’s radical laws to federalize our nation’s election system. 

As a substitute of merely disagreeing with Manchin, Hasan, like most leftists, questioned his motives and even pulled out the race card. Accusing the Senator of serving to the Republican Celebration reinstate Jim Crow. Speaking to visitor Adam Serwer of The Atlantic, Hasan requested: “Adam, how a lot of what the fashionable GOP is doing and what Joe Manchin helps them to do about Jim Crow 2.0, about preserving racism, and white dominance, white supremacy on this nation?

So now Democrat Joe Manchin is a white supremacist too? Is there anybody to the suitable of Karl Marx who MSNBC doesn’t suppose is a white supremacist? 

As if this phase wasn’t bigoted sufficient, Hasan determined to double down later within the present by telling Israeli political advisor George Birnbaum that Israel is illegally occupying the West Financial institution, along with different allegations of inhumane conduct.

Birnbaum was too well mannered to deal with Hasan’s blatant anti-Israel hate, though he did “take exception” to the allegations. Hasan didn’t point out the inhumane conduct of Hamas and their violence in the direction of Israel. I’m wondering why? Whatever the purpose, making unsubstantiated allegations in opposition to America’s primary ally, and the one democracy within the Center East is unacceptable.

MEHDI HASAN: Adam, how a lot of what the fashionable GOP is doing and what Joe Manchin helps them to do about Jim Crow 2.0, about preserving racism, and white dominance, white supremacy on this nation?

ADAM SERWER (THE ATLANTIC): Nicely, so, I — Senator Manchin might be — has in thoughts reminiscences of reauthorizations of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which I’d add, you already know, that stopped being — that began being controversial pretty not too long ago. Clearly, the Roberts Court docket gutted a giant part of the Voting Rights Act. However, within the 1860s when the Republicans have been making an attempt to reconstruct the federal authorities after the Civil Conflict, put the nation again collectively, they realized that the South didn’t wish to settle for black suffrage. Um, and they also did not say, “nicely we’re not going to do black suffrage until the Democrats go alongside. It is bipartisan.” You already know, they simply did it, they did it as a result of they understood that it was important to American democracy to ensure that the newly emancipated might vote. Now, what occurred within the Nineteen Sixties is as a result of the events have been polarized —

HASAN: Yep.

SERWER: — ideologically and regionally. You had Democrats, you had Republicans who have been prepared to cross the aisle to go the Voting Rights Act to present votes for the Voting Rights Act of 1965. They have been prepared to try this —

HASAN: Yep.

SERWER: — proper up till the Bush administration. However they don’t seem to be prepared to try this anymore. And what Manchin is saying is actually if the Republicans don’t desire Democratic constituencies to have the ability to vote, “nicely that is the top of the story,” as a result of he is not going to assist Democrats do something about it. And he is most likely not the one one. I imply, the reality is, he is most likely taking the fireplace for extra liberal Democrats in bluer states—

HASAN: Sure.

SERWER: who do not wish to come out and say it, however the fact is that that is what they’re saying. We’re giving Republicans a veto over whether or not or not our personal constituencies —

HASAN: Sure.

SERWER: — have an unfettered proper to vote.

HASAN: 100% agree with you on the final level there. I’m guessing there’s one other 4, 5, six senators within the Democratic caucus who wish to maintain the filibuster for some misguided, bipartisanship dreaming purpose. Adam, immediately is 5 months to the day because the rebellion. You rightly say the fashionable GOP helps the targets, if not the ways, the violence of the insurrectionists. Why are so many Democrats who nonetheless consider in bipartisanship — Sinema, Manchin, these unnamed senators you and I do know are on the market — why are they so unable to see that apparent level that is in entrance of their noses?

SERWER: I — you already know, I would not start to invest. however I’ll level out that, you already know, on the day of January sixth, loads of Republicans have been embarrassed. You already know, they condemned what occurred with the rioters as terrorism. You already know, they forcefully condemned the actions of the rioters. However since then, saying that the election was stolen or a minimum of being silent when different individuals say the election is stolen has develop into the worth of excellent standing within the Republican Celebration. In case you are a Republican and also you say the election was, in actual fact, not stolen, that Joe Biden rightfully received, then you definately danger getting your self purged, particularly should you’re from — you’re — you’ve got a place of management like Liz Cheney, who was not too long ago faraway from that place a couple of weeks in the past, as a result of she insisted that it was not true, that — that — that the election was stolen. However even individuals like Liz Cheney are usually not opposing these legal guidelines within the states, these state legal guidelines that Republicans are passing in an effort to limit the voting rights of Democratic constituencies to allow them to preserve their maintain —

HASAN: Yep.

SERWER: — on energy with the minority of the vote. They don’t seem to be opposing that. They may oppose the capitol riot.

HASAN: Yeah.

SERWER: They don’t seem to be against the concept Republicans ought to reshape election regulation with a purpose to higher make sure that Republicans win, which is what they see is the bigger drawback, not this — not the difficulty of the capitol riot which is just a symptom.

HASAN: I am so glad you talked about Liz Cheney as a result of after I learn Joe Manchin’s op-ed this morning and he stated “nicely, what in regards to the seven Republican Senators who voted to convict? Why cannot we get them on board? They’re not enemies of democracy.” The truth that I considered Liz Cheney within the Home who voted to question Donald Trump however is completely tremendous, as you say, with voter suppression payments as she stated in a current Axios interview, I believe it was. Adam, in your glorious piece, and I urge everybody to learn it. You say, “the identical racial and spiritual polarization that’s fueling the Republican flip in opposition to democracy has additionally turned the Democratic Celebration into an establishment that’s doubtlessly incapable of confronting the issue.” You principally say the Democrats numerous coalition versus the Republicans white base means they cannot get all people behind, you already know one trigger. That is a fairly large problem for the Democrats is not it? This Manchin declaration immediately for instance, large setback for Biden, Schumer and co. What might be carried out, if something?

SERWER: Yeah, I imply, look. The Democrats have a ideologically, racially, religiously numerous coalition. They’ve conservatives, they’ve liberals, they’ve moderates, they’ve Christians, they’ve Muslims, they’ve Jews. And the Republican Celebration is basically, by identification, a white Christian get together. It isn’t fully that means. Clearly, we noticed them win over, you already know, a bigger variety of Latino voters, than Trump did the primary time round. However what which means is the get together with a extra ideologically and racially numerous constituency would not have the identical unity of motion {that a} get together that’s as homogeneous because the Republican Celebration is. We have seen this time and again. We have truly seen the events be reversed however be in the identical place again when the Democratic Celebration was the get together of segregation and white identification and Republican Celebration was the get together of the black vote. You noticed related issues, which is that the broader your constituency, you might be able to carry a majority however you’re not going to have the identical means to get all people on the identical web page you’ll  in case your get together is smaller and extra ideologically and culturally cohesive.

HASAN: Sadly, I believe you are proper about that. Adam Serwer, we’ll have to depart it there. Thanks a lot for becoming a member of us on the present tonight.

SERWER: Thanks for having me.

MEHDI HASAN: No matter Israeli authorities is shaped this week, Gazians will proceed to dwell underneath siege. East Jerusalem — East Jerusalemites will proceed to be evicted from their houses, West Bankers will proceed to should put up with unlawful Israeli settlements. You settle for, George, that, for Palestinians, it actually makes no distinction if the Israeli chief is your new boss, Naftali Bennett or your outdated boss Benjamin Netanyahu?

GEORGE BIRNBAUM: Nicely, I — I might take exception with a few of your characterizations. However, uh,  I believe that if — in case you have a authorities that’s made up of such a broad ideology, and this authorities will likely be made up, that there ought to be hope for each Jews and Palestinians that there generally is a change in the established order and nonetheless you characterize that established order, an enchancment in everybody’s lives is admittedly what we have to have.

HASAN: The issue with bettering the established order and bettering individuals’s lives is you additionally will not inform us if Palestinians can have a state in independence.

BIRNBAUM: Hear, I labored for Prime Minister Netanyahu. I labored for Prime Minister Sharon. You already know, I believe a two state answer is inevitable. That’s my private opinion. I am not speaking as an official place for Naftali Bennett. I believe that is an inevitability. I simply suppose it will take the suitable sort of management on either side to get there. And I’m — once more, I am hopeful {that a} broad coalition might assist result in that. I believe, once more, I wish to see

HASAN: Okay.

BIRNBAUM: — each Jew and each Arab be capable of take a look at their youngsters and know they’ll develop up in peace.

HASAN: Let’s examine what occurs, George Birnbaum. Thanks a lot for becoming a member of us on the present immediately.
