Martin Bashir, another one of the terrible show hosts at MSNBC, has resigned from his show after a mostly-fake controversy over his criticism of Sarah Palin comparing federal debt to slavery. Sarah Palin just hopes that people learn from her brave example of martyrdom:
On Wednesday, Bashir had announced that he was resigning from MSNBC after suggesting that Palin deserved to eat human feces the way that slaves were once forced to for her remarks comparing the federal debt to slavery.
“My role is to accept his apology and be humble enough and to, you know, accept it and move on,” Palin told the hosts of Fox & Friends on Thursday. “But I just hope that unprovoked attacks like that don’t result in people being hesitant to jump in the arena anyway, to get out there and serve the public or start a business or really commit themselves to changing within their family, their community, their world, doing whatever they can despite the fact that, in this world, you are going to be hurt and attacks will come your way.”
“I just hope that an attack like that doesn’t make people hesitate.”
Yes, I’m sure it will have the same effect as all of your “attacks” on other people in politics. Funny how only criticism aimed at her is a dangerous threat to free speech and an attempt to silence people. Her criticism of others totally doesn’t do that.
