HYPOCRITE: Bigoted MSNBC Host Accuses Others of Being Bigoted

In case anybody was questioning, MSNBC’s weekend programming isn’t any much less unhinged than its weekday counterpart. If you want proof of this, look no farther than MSNBC’s backbencher Sunday night host of The Mehdi Hasan Show, Mehdi Hasan. 

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

Instead 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 Party reinstate Jim Crow. Talking to visitor Adam Serwer of The Atlantic, Hasan requested: “Adam, how much of what the modern GOP is doing and what Joe Manchin is helping them to do about Jim Crow 2.0, about preserving racism, and white dominance, white supremacy in this country?

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

As if this section wasn’t bigoted sufficient, Hasan determined to double down later within the present by telling Israeli political marketing consultant George Birnbaum that Israel is illegally occupying the West Bank, 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 direction of Israel. I ponder why? Regardless of the rationale, making unsubstantiated allegations towards America’s primary ally, and the one democracy within the Middle 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): Well, so, I — Senator Manchin might be — has in thoughts recollections of reauthorizations of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which I would add, you already know, that stopped being — that began being controversial pretty lately. Obviously, the Roberts Court gutted a giant part of the Voting Rights Act. But, within the 1860s when the Republicans had been attempting to reconstruct the federal authorities after the Civil War, 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, “well we’re not going to do black suffrage unless the Democrats go along. It’s bipartisan.” You know, they only did it, they did it as a result of they understood that it was important to American democracy to make it possible for the newly emancipated may vote. Now, what occurred within the Sixties is as a result of the events had been polarized —

HASAN: Yep.

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

HASAN: Yep.

SERWER: — proper up till the Bush administration. But they are not keen to do this anymore. And what Manchin is saying is actually if the Republicans don’t need Democratic constituencies to have the ability to vote, “well that’s the end of the story,” as a result of he isn’t 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 hearth for extra liberal Democrats in bluer states—

HASAN: Yes.

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

HASAN: Yes.

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 cause. Adam, right now is 5 months to the day because the rebellion. You rightly say the fashionable GOP helps the targets, if not the techniques, the violence of the insurrectionists. Why are so many Democrats who nonetheless imagine 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, quite a lot of Republicans had been embarrassed. You know, they condemned what occurred with the rioters as terrorism. You know, they forcefully condemned the actions of the rioters. But since then, saying that the election was stolen or no less than being silent when different individuals say the election is stolen has turn out to be the worth of fine standing within the Republican Party. If you’re a Republican and also you say the election was, in reality, not stolen, that Joe Biden rightfully gained, then you definitely threat getting your self purged, particularly when you’re from — you’re — you will have a place of management like Liz Cheney, who was lately faraway from that place a number of weeks in the past, as a result of she insisted that it was not true, that — that — that the election was stolen. But 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’re not opposing that. They may oppose the capitol riot.

HASAN: Yeah.

SERWER: They’re not against the concept Republicans ought to reshape election legislation in an effort to higher make sure that Republicans win, which is what they see is the bigger drawback, not this — not the problem of the capitol riot which is just a symptom.

HASAN: I’m so glad you talked about Liz Cheney as a result of once I learn Joe Manchin’s op-ed this morning and he mentioned “well, what about the seven Republican Senators who voted to convict? Why can’t we get them on board? They’re not enemies of democracy.” The undeniable fact that I considered Liz Cheney within the House who voted to question Donald Trump however is completely tremendous, as you say, with voter suppression payments as she mentioned in a latest Axios interview, I believe it was. Adam, in your wonderful piece, and I urge everybody to learn it. You say, “the same racial and religious polarization that is fueling the Republican turn against democracy has also turned the Democratic Party into an institution that is potentially incapable of confronting the problem.” You mainly say the Democrats numerous coalition versus the Republicans white base means they can not get all people behind, you already know one trigger. That’s a reasonably large problem for the Democrats is not it? This Manchin declaration right now for instance, massive setback for Biden, Schumer and co. What may be carried out, if something?

SERWER: Yeah, I imply, look. The Democrats have a ideologically, racially, religiously numerous coalition. They have conservatives, they’ve liberals, they’ve moderates, they’ve Christians, they’ve Muslims, they’ve Jews. And the Republican Party is basically, by identification, a white Christian social gathering. It’s not completely that approach. Obviously, we noticed them win over, you already know, a bigger variety of Latino voters, than Trump did the primary time round. But what meaning is the social gathering with a extra ideologically and racially numerous constituency does not have the identical unity of motion {that a} social gathering that’s as homogeneous because the Republican Party is. We’ve seen this again and again. We’ve really seen the events be reversed however be in the identical place again when the Democratic Party was the social gathering of segregation and white identification and Republican Party was the social gathering of the black vote. You noticed comparable issues, which is that the broader your constituency, you could possibly 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 social gathering 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. Thank you a lot for becoming a member of us on the present tonight.

SERWER: Thanks for having me.

MEHDI HASAN: Whatever Israeli authorities is shaped this week, Gazians will proceed to reside 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: Well, I — I might take exception with a few of your characterizations. But, uh,  I believe that if — if in case you have a authorities that’s made up of such a broad ideology, and this authorities can be made up, that there must 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 de facto what we have to have.

HASAN: The drawback 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: Listen, I labored for Prime Minister Netanyahu. I labored for Prime Minister Sharon. You know, I believe a two state resolution is inevitable. That is my private opinion. I’m not speaking as an official place for Naftali Bennett. I believe that is an inevitability. I simply assume it should take the precise sort of management on either side to get there. And I’m — once more, I’m hopeful {that a} broad coalition might assist result in that. I believe, once more, I want to see

HASAN: Okay.

BIRNBAUM: — each Jew and each Arab have the ability to take a look at their kids and know they will develop up in peace.

HASAN: Let’s see what occurs, George Birnbaum. Thank you a lot for becoming a member of us on the present right now.
