David Shuster Tweets About Wingnut Threats

Saturday, August 15, 2009

Yesterday, MSNBC’s David Shuster shared tweets about wingnut threats:

I shudder to think what Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow must receive everyday from the unhinged, lunatic rightwing?

Ironically, it’s many of these same wingnuts who would benefit most from Obamacare. They could finally see a doctor and receive the psychotropic meds they so obviously need but can’t afford.

    This is the thing about the internet. People can sit in front of their keyboard and anonymously attack the people they disagree with. I have often wondered if it was a good security policy for these networks to give out the contact addresses on the air.

    I like David Shuster.

    He was smart to get the hell off FOX and onto MSNBC. He’s said in interviews his former bosses at FOX were constantly on him for being “too liberal.”

    Yeah, right. Fair and balanced in a pig’s eye.

    I also liked hos he stood up to the Clintons during the primary and questioned their use of Princess Chelsea. He’s OK.

    Tell me (us) what to do: out-tweet them? I don’t want to be the silent MJ but how can we sound sane and help you, KO and RM? Cause one wingnut cancels another, right?

  4. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    It’s part of the GOP attack machine.

    If you didn’t fellate Bush and Cheney, they said you were a “commie.” It’s all bullshit intended to scare people.

    I say, bring it on. I have no use for conservatives.

    I suspect the HMOs and health insurers are paying PR firms who in turn are paying people to make the threats.

    One of those a-holes called me at work yesterday. Now that the fight is literally in my back yard I started a second blog just for politics and social justice stuff.

    A few months ago, I read on Huffington Post where even Sheppard Smith — the closest thing to a liberal on FIXED Noise, had started to receive hate mail from viewers telling him he didn’t belong there and to quit. These wingtards are truly deranged.

  9. these people wont stop until they actually get someone

    this is scary

  10. In case you hadn’t already heard, Dick Armey & Rachel Maddow will be panelists on “Meet The Press” tomorrow (Aug. 16). It should be interesting, to say the least, and I can only imagine what wingnuttery Rachel’s mailbox will contain on Monday morning. She’ll tear up the neocon douchekateers!

    Christopher, that was the best conclusion paragraph I’ve ever read. I laughed at the truth of it.

    Bravo!

    I never think about anchors being astroturfed but it stands to reason the nutcases would target them too.

    What a strange world. Disagree with someone and in today’s world, the appropriate response is to issue threats.

    How (il)logical.
