Leftist loon blames Chicago violence on climate change

One can expect to hear any number of ridiculous claims by guests – not to mention hosts – on the far-left MSNBC network, but one talking head recently shared an opinion so unbelievable it actually stood out among the rest of the propagandistic rhetoric.

Christie Hefner, spokesperson for the Center for American Progress, was on the air with pseudo-Republican host Joe Scarborough to share her amazingly obtuse view that climate change is responsible for Chicago’s spike in gun violence.

Climate change – a catch-all term much harder to dispute than “global warming” – has been blamed for almost all of the world’s ills by those on the fringe left. Hefner’s diatribe, however, found a new and baffling way to target Americans for their supposed disrespect of the environment.

Citing some “contributing factors” for the violence, she said “there is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer and we are having this climate change effect that is driving that.”

Embroiled in a culture of violence and suffering under corrupt leadership, Chicago has plenty of causes for its deadly reputation. A normal fluctuation in global temperature is not one of them, despite Hefner’s emphatic contention.

For his part, Scarborough seemed to realize her point was sufficiently controversial and used the opportunity to take a jab at conservative writers.

Telling her “conservative bloggers across America thank you” for the commentary fodder, he couldn’t resist adding that she “made a lot of people in the basements of their mother’s homes very happy.”

For all the left’s hand-wringing over a perceived bias at Fox News, there is absolutely no comparison to the blatant political prejudice found in the mainstream media. By comparison, I suppose a network daring to actually expose the conservative viewpoint to its audience would seem biased.

TIME Editor Calls Obama ‘A Dick’ On Live TV- MSNBC Suspends Him


Time Magazine Editor Mark Halperin should have known better. While on-air “gaffes” are not rare, a media member flatly stating his opinion on-the-air only because he thought it could censored out later is not a common occurrence. Perhaps Mark should take some motherly advice- “If you can’t say something nice about someone, say nothing at all!”

That might be too much to ask in this day and age where everyone thinks their opinion matters (point proven in this article as I, the author give my personal opinion).

Then again… maybe Mr.  Halperin was right. While a lady should never talk that way, I would have to agree with his assessment of the President’s attitude yesterday.

What I find sadly amusing is how this situation has played out this morning.

First there was the incident itself.

Then came the syrupy-sweet apology.

Then MSNBC announced that Mark Halperin, the reporter who made the “gaffe”, was “indefinitely suspended”.

The video posted does not show the entire exchange between Joe Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski during Mr. Halperin’s apology, but it has been mysteriously scrubbed from the internet. Ms. Brzezinski was what I would call syrupy-sweet and very over-the-top in saying that they also apologized, etc., etc., etc., blah, blah, blah.

I find interesting that  Mr. Halperin has been “indefinitely suspended” for his remarks, yet it’s “anything goes” when discussing Conservatives. Just a few examples for you to mull over:

  • Chris Matthews calls Michele Bachmann a “balloon head”
  • Some have said that MSNBC has an “almost unhealthy obsession with Sarah Palin”- and I am sure it is obvious their “obsessive” coverage of Governor Palin is not positive
  • Specifically, Governor Palin was blamed by NUMEROUS MSNBC  (as well as other MSM outlets) hosts, pundits, etc. for the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords
  • Ed Schultz, another MSNBC host, was given a slap-on-the-wrist discipline of a one week suspension for calling Conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham a slut
  • Cenk Uygur, yet another MSNBC host, mocked a gay GOProud chairman in an on-air interview

These are just a few of the endless remarks against Conservatives that have had little or no repercussions for the offender.

Another interesting note for readers. In my research for this article, I read that the rumor mill is churning with whispers of CBS possibly being in talks to steal “Morning Joe” and replace their never ending boring morning programming with Joe and Mika. I’m guessing the rumor mill may be grinding to a halt after today’s fiasco.
