Between Mika Brzezinski using her feigned outrage as a wedge to scold President Obama and his Kamala Harris remarks this past week, which earned her a gold star soundbite on just about every local news station in the country that night, saying:
“I’m sure he meant to pay her a compliment… but quite frankly, it just divides women and it just divides people up to separate them by looks and probably was a little ham-fisted. I just think the whole thing, the whole dynamic about women and their looks puts women under a lot of stress that they don’t need. and they should be sort of talked about by their qualities at work, especially when he is introducing someone because she is the attorney general. I actually think, you know, he meant to do — say something nice. I think he made a mistake.”
And Joe Scarborough calling out Quentin Tarantino as, “a pornographer of violence,” and “a despicable human being” for ”coarsing America’s culture, by bloodying America’s culture”– I can’t tell which concern-trolling member of the Morning Joe circle of jerks was more out of line and more full of shit. I’ll give Mika the benefit of the doubt on this one because she’s surrounded by mentally-constipated has-been bobble-headed dipshits all morning who are emotionally incapable of apologizing for confusing chauvinism, for chivalry. But the fact that Mika Brzezinski criticized President Obama while professional chauvinist hack Joe Scarborough looked on nodding in agreement was just about too much to bear.
But I think it was Joe My-Tucked-Penis-And-Beady-Eyed-Glasses-Make-Me-Want-To-Fuck-Me Scarborough in his little MSNBC morning public opinion show-trial condemning Quentin Tarantino to death because the domestic terrorists of the NRA will threaten to assassinate him otherwise, has got to be the biggest pile of concern-trolling bullshit I heard all week.
Kudos, Joe. Only a fake intellectual douchebag like you could make George Will sound like the brains of your creepo-confederate wingnut bow-tie propaganda outlets.
Because any functioning imbecile knows that fake violence depicted in movies is just as bad as the organization that uses every mass shooting in the country to threaten the lives of public officials and sell more guns.
I’m sure Joe’s outrage over Django probably has more to do with his fear of white people finding out that the slave trade was actually really fucked up and not at all like the not-so-bad narrative prevalent in right wing conservative textbooks, or that the trade was protected by guns, and slave-holding white men with their guns, and well-regulating militias with their guns, and so Joe took the coward’s way out by speaking out against theater and depicted violence in the arts.
I have to wonder, though, if Joe actually understands that America has done some pretty fucked up things to their brothers and sisters.
Maybe Joe Scarborough is just a little worried that black people might see Django and rise up against the Joe Scarborough race of notoriously overachieving white men who have been benefiting from white affirmative action since birth and who make no apologies for it while they sit back and crack their subtle “keep-up, nigger!” jokes?
