Martin Bashir takes Sarah Palin-bashing way too far; calls for his suspension follow


Eyebrows were raised the world over when MSNBC anchor Martin Bashir suggested someone take a dump in Sarah Palin’s mouth.

During a progressive monologue he called “clearing the air,” the snarky host from across the pond took issue on Friday with Palin’s criticism of the mounting national debt and its impact on future generations.

“Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China,” Palin said in a Nov. 9 speech in Iowa. “When that note comes due … it’s gonna be like slavery.”

Bashir called her “America’s resident dunce, scraping the barrel of her long-deceased mind.”

With mock indignation, Bashir researched liberals’ favorite topic, racism, and came up with the diary of Thomas Thistlewood, a 1750s-era slaver. That’s when things took a turn for the perverse. Bashir quoted this diary entry:

“A slave named Derby catched him eating canes. Had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector sh** in his mouth.”

According to Bashir, such an act “became known as Darby’s dose, a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owner’s savagery and inhumanity.”

The fact that the comparison is misused and has nothing to do with Palin are of little importance to Bashir, who added that the former Alaska governor could use a little Darby’s dose herself.

“When Mrs. Palin invokes slavery,” Bashir said, “she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance, she confirms that if anyone ever qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.”

Founder and CEO of Twitchy, Michelle Malkin wasted no time in calling Bashir out as a misogynist on Twitter. Many others joined her.
