Ed Schultz on MSNBC: “Republicans Want to See You Dead”

posted at 9:08 am on September 24, 2009 by

Writing for David Horowitz’s NewsReal Ben Johnson reports that Keith Olbermann may not be the worst commentator employed by leftist cable news network MSNBC. Meet Ed Schultz:

The Republicans lie! They want to see you dead! They’d rather make money off your dead corpse! They kinda like it when that woman has cancer and they don’t have anything for her…My God, Democrats, what’s wrong with you?! You can’t deal with these people, at all!

Schultz proceeded to equate the GOP with the Cancer Caucus “and brandished a death wish against [moderate Republican] Olympia Snow.”

Now Olympia Snowe, I’m not wishing bad on you, at all, but if you get cancer in your stomach, Senator Snowe, what I would like you to do is wait two weeks to see a doctor. Huh?! You’re telling them to suck it up.

Watch it here.

Snowe isn’t the first Republican targeted by loon-leftist Schultz: Earlier this month he invited Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-MN, “to slit her wrist right here on ‘The Ed Show.’

Suffice to say that conservatives may consider spending a little bit less timing criticizing right-of-center commentators and a bit more time going after Ed Schultz and the like.

He’s kind of emotional isn’t he? I find it hard to go after people like this because I can’t take them seriously. I know that others do but I don’t think you can fix this kind of crazy.

Going after someone like Schultz is done by… doing what Johnson does at NRB and what we do right here 😉 Just pointing out how insane this man is. That’s enough.

Ed’s schtick was to be ‘reasonable’ at first. Then the ratings came in and ‘reasonble liberals’ just don’t get anyone to watch them.

I’m positive that Ed is going hard left to save his butt and his job.

Good luck with that Ed.

i’m not going to repeat your comment, but i think that you are over the line.

are you trolling for like minded commenters? if so, beat it.

DrW on September 24, 2009 at 3:26 PM

Schultz is a real-life ‘Ed Anger’ but with the opposite polarity.

Beagle on September 24, 2009 at 3:30 PM

“Republicans are trying to scare people!”

“And they want you dead too!”

Textbook cognitive dissonance on display.

It has been reported by the Neilson Ratings that two families out of the total of four families who actually were watching “The Ed Show” agreed with Ed.

This morning on the GB radio show, Frank Luntz made a funny, he said MSMBC is the only station with more call letters than viewers. Made me chuckle.

ditto my comment to afotia. you are out of line with your comment. what they hell are you thinking?

DrW on September 24, 2009 at 3:34 PM

I used to occasionally listen to him on the radio before he got the msnbc job. He was a leftie, but he was reasonable, and pretty funny. Guess when he went to msnbc, he had to take it from a 7 on the leftie scale to a 28 to fit in.

It would be interesting if someone were to follow up with the woman from the Cantor townhall and find out what happened. No, I’m not a troll, but if we could find out that the friend with cancer was able to get care, either through charity or whatever means, then we could say to the Ed Schultz’ of the world “the system does work.”

“Conservative Republican” Joe Scarborough has no problem with these rants, but he just can’t stop talking about Palin and Beck. WTF?

joedoe on September 24, 2009 at 3:39 PM

Why do the comments wander over to the Left?
I can’t read most of them at the bottom.

Cindy Munford on September 24, 2009 at 3:46 PM

At the risk of sounding even mildly sarcastic, exactly how is MSNBC running casting calls for these shows of theirs these days; by visiting the Violent Ward of the local insane asylum, finding the first foaming at the mouth wrapped in a strait jacket in a rubber room loon they come across and asking them “Hey, want your own news show?”

I mean, I can’t believe people like this Ed Schultz kook are allowed to wander the streets without some sort of supervision.

pilamaye on September 24, 2009 at 3:49 PM

Schultz is a fifth-rate nobody trying to gain some notoriety and make a name for himself.

What browser are you using, and what OS are you using it on, and, last but not least, what plugins are configured for your browser?

unclesmrgol on September 24, 2009 at 4:04 PM

I dunno. As bad as this was, Keith Olbermann still takes the prize for insinuating that George Bush had Pat Tillman assassinated.

Is Schultzie all up to date with his rabies shots?

Why? Schultz looks like he’ll self destruct.

Why would anyone go after this nutjob? It’s not like anyone watches Schultz. He has about as much influence as a homeless guy in an empty alley muttering to himself “the aliens are coming”.

xblade on September 24, 2009 at 5:34 PM

I don’t want Schultz dead, I just want him to live the last 40 months of his life on a waiting list. For a trivial procedure.

fronclynne on September 24, 2009 at 5:43 PM

Looks like MSNBC hired that mental case that escaped from a field trip to the fair.
