MSNBC Anchor Threatens Romney Son With Violence

MSNBC Anchor Threatens Romney Son With Violence

Video! The LA Times called it, “The lame MSNBC outrage over Tagg Romney’s “swing”. The liberal Huffington Post called it a “Joke”. ABC News called it a “Jest”.

But the ultra-liberal MSNBC “news” anchors Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton launched on a tirade of vitriol and hatred toward Romney’s son. Lawrence O’Donnell got up from his chair, walked towards the camera and threatened Romney’s son with physical violence.

Ah, the liberal love.

So what is this all about? Mitt Romney’s son Taggart (Tagg) Romney was a guest on the radio program, “The Bill LuMaye Show, ”a program that originates from WPTF Talk Radio 850AM based out of Raleigh, NC.

Show Host Bill LuMaye asks the following question to Tagg as an interview opener.
Bill LuMaye: “I want to ask something I know a lot of people want to know, or at least I do. What is it like for you (Tagg starts chuckling) to hear the President of the United States call your Dad a liar? How do you react to that?”

Here is how Tagg responded.
Tagg: Jump out of your seat, rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him but you know you can’t do that, because, huh, first there’s a lot of secret service between you and him but also because also it’s the nature of the process. They are going to try to do everything they can do to make my Dad into someone he’s not. We signed up for it, huh, we got to kind of sit there and take our punches and then send them back the other way.”

MSNBC went nuts over a sons light hearted response to a question about his Dad being called a liar. Listen to the actual interview on The Bill Lumaye Show.

While all media left, right and anything in-between understood it was a son coming to his Dad’s defense in a joking manner, MSNBC took offense. Watch Lawrence O’Donnell stand up, turn on a Boston accent, walk toward the camera and threaten Mitt Romney’s son with violence.

MSNBC epitomizes the liberal heart. It’s vile. The FCC needs to intercede. A television “news” anchor on national TV threatens physical violence to the son of a presidential candidate.

O’Donnell-You’re tough with your mouth. You’re tough on that side of the camera. You epitomize the liberal heart.

Liberals love to take pot shots, make accusations and threats while perched high atop the ivory tower of self assumed superiority. Unscathed they condescend to everyone that do not agree with them. They dismiss those not in one accord with them as intellectually inferior or bigoted.

A liberals’ primary tactic is to demonize and polarize. They hate, berate and intimidate. It’s an evil.

Liberal’s generally hide in the shadow of their ivory tower. Rarely will they come off their perch and into the light. I’d love to see O’Donnell make the same threat of violence face to face with the Romney’s son. I’d love to see it but it will never happen. Liberals can’t face fact or reality. Both are inconsistent with their purpose.

    This is how adults are supposed to act? Kids sitting down with their parents watching the news and this is what they see an adult doing. He tries to look cool and ask someone to fight him, i personally think he looks childish and ignorant. When did news turn this way?

    These bully tactics work with some union folks I suppose but seeing this for the first time today ( I refuse to watch MSNBC because they aren’t newsworthy) like most of America, I’m once again reminded why I never watch their programming unless it’s directly after one of the debates or some gaffe or policy decision that I want to get the liberal argument.

    Liberals are angry and have been angry since Bill Clinton let them down 15 years ago. They will disagree that they were disappointed but they went underground with their displeasure and rallied support for Senate and Congressional seats. I have to say it was a pretty smart move. They accomplished the goal of moving America toward a socialistic (they prefer “centralized”) government. I prefer to call a spade a spade.

    Like Josh, I find this sophomoric but for liberals it’s effective. Socializing healthcare against the wishes of the American people and in violation of the first amendment rights of the Catholic Church drew criticism from moderates and certainly from pure capitalists.

    Threatening physical violence is not a new strategy. Remember the Black Panthers outside voting stations? Since the crackdown on Acorn we see PAC signs set up as reminders that it is a punishable crime to defraud the election process.

    Liberals threaten and violate the legal system, conservatives push back using punishment of the law. Liberals see it as an action of civil disobedience.

    If the judicial and legislative process continues to morph, it will not be long before Constitutionality of law will not be on the table any longer and that is something I fear.

    I think we saw from the “Tea Party” that moderates view the Constitution as the basis for governing. What happens if they begin looking at the tactics of liberals like “Occupiers” and decide the only way to favorably change the status quo is to begin to adopt the same tactics and call it ‘civil disobedience?”

    Scott Rasmussen did a poll showing that Tea Party still has a negative connotation. I wonder if he asked which was viewed less desirable, Tea Party or Occupier, what the results would be.

    Hey Lawrence,
    I always thought you liberals were gutless cowards NOW I know it. Liberlas cry tolerance and this is what is truly in the heart, Out of the mouth proceeds what is inside. Calm down take a breath. Count to ten. Guess you don’t realize you may get a visit from the Secret Service throwing out threats to the next First Family. I’ ll wait for your on air apology. NO, wait, I don’t watch you so I will have to wait for a sound bite from a legitimate news source like Live & Local.
