Joe Scarborough Discovers ‘Disgusting’ Daily Caller Racism, Is Surprised (VIDEO)

  when you've lost joe you've lost america

All the hatred money can buyWe wonder who Joe Scarborough is talking about here, when he calls out rightwing websites for being “beneath contempt” in their treatment of Trayvon Martin! (No we don’t. He is talking about Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller.) Noting that the Daily Caller had breathlessly presented Trayvon Martin’s Twitter feed as fodder for the poor oppressed whites of the world to note what a bad bad boy Trayvon Martin was, Scarborough practically throws up at the disingenuousness of presenting something so “innocuous … I can show you a lot of white kids, from suburban neighborhoods … come on.” Then he goes on and on and on about some on the right (Tucker Carlson) being “disgusting, warped, twisted and distorted.” Transcript and video of Joe Scarborough calling out Tucker Carlson for hurting America, after the jump.

Here, Tucker, here is just a tiny bit of what Joe Scarborough thinks of you now.

“Some out there are marginalizing themselves, making fools of themselves. I guess it’s because the President actually said something to comfort the parents, and I guess they just can’t handle that. I guess in their warped, twisted, distorted, political worldview, that makes this dead 17-year-old boy [...] I guess that makes it okay?”

    What 17 year-old isn't "bad?"
    I'm tired of hearing about the hoodie. Like they never shot a black person in a suit? Ask Martin Luther King Jr.

    1. flamingpdog

      The other night, I looked at some pictures of the Washington D. C. riots after MLK was shot, and there was one with a couple of black dudes in suits running from a store with a shattered front window, with goods in their arms. They weren't shot because DC has a black mayor, Walter Washington, who told his police "no, no, no" about the shooting looters thingie. I realized that was probably the first time in over 40 years that I had looked at pics and stories about the 1968 riots in DC. Those were not happy times…

    Well, of course. This takes time away from criticizing Obama for not being bipartisan enough.

  3. Jus_Wonderin

    I think the real issue here is that, given we have historically ONLY had WHITE men as President, when Mr. Obama says "Trayvon looks like he could be my son", the radical racists hear…"fuck you, whitey, I won this fuckin Whitehouse in 2008 and you couldn't do shit about it, Motherfuckers". I might be wrong.

    Trust me, Joe isn't going liberal….he just isn't as insane as the rest of them. But he did call the Daily Caller mainstream – which it obviously isn't. I imagine its about as mainstream as the Wonkette….but meaner with less snark.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      He still thinks the clowns who drafted Floriduh's "Stand Yer Ground" law did the right thing. Joe's worried that the truly insane wingnuts are making the merely dumb ones look bad.

  5. Jus_Wonderin

    Doesn't that photo of Tucker look as if he just noticed a big _______ that just passed his silken lips?

    (Fill in the blank?)

    Holy shit, when Java Joe comes out as the voice of reason on the right….well, I'm going to go search the sky for the alien podpeople…

      1. sewollef

        Times Square? Never go there… it's a little like the plague virus to me.

        If I'm walking uptown, I circumnavigate around the festering, tourist podpeople shit hole by a margin of two blocks east or west — at least.

        And even then… 8th Avenue?? Don't get me started on 8th and 42nd. Another shit hole infested with strange people not from New York

  7. Schmannnity

    Say what you will about Joe, at least he can conjugate the verb break. Rev. Al last night was a travesty.

    1. James Michael Curley

      I knew Rev. Al when he was a travesty. He could never get the nail and lip color combo to work.

  8. HippieEsq

    Joe Scarborough just announced his candidacy for Congress (District – "anywhere but Florida").

  9. ElPinche

    Don't be confused. Joe is just playing the "reasonable" Republican. Shorter: " This Daily Caller racism is an isolated incident, just like the Martin incident. I feel better about being a Republican again! "

    As for Mika, she needs a good spanking till that ass is nice and pink.

    Tucker always struck me as one of those sweaty, unpopular nerds even other nerds didn't like, so to try to gain some kind of higher ground, he amped up the bullying and meanness in a sad and desperate effort to get in with the popular kids who just use him to 1. be mean to other kids for them and 2. have one more thing to make fun of him for, especially when he tries to ask one of the popular girls to the prom.

    I'm close, aren't I, Tucker?

      1. Jerri

        And, "Oh yeah, well at my dad's summer mansion I got one of the maid's daughters to give it to me behind the equipment shed. Her boobs were sooo lumpy! It was…What? Why are you laughing? No really, she totally made out with me! You know what, fuck you guys, my family is richer than yours."

    If you just said somthing that made you sound empathetic…You might be RINO

    The beady-eyed shit weasel is right for once. Unfortunately he'll be back to his old self by Monday, after a fresh infusion of bile, mescaline and lemon pledge.

  13. SayItWithWookies

    Good ol' Joe — being just sensitive enough to get oodles of respect from all those people who've been kicked out of the GOP for being RINOs.

  14. sullivanst

    Nice little reminder that despicable as Schmo is, the right has soooooo many others soooooo much worse than him.

  15. Toomush_Infer

    I like the part toward the end where Joe says: "sick, twisted, distorted…." while MIka looks down at his crotch and finally comments: "That's pretty thick….coming up…." You can't write dialogue like that…

  16. ttommyunger

    " … makes this dead 17-year-old boy [...] I guess that makes it okay?” Now a dead female intern? That's just collateral damage, that's OK.

  17. imissopus

    Listen to the National Review? Home of such luminous thinkers as Kathryn Jean Lopez and Rich Lowry? Sorry Joe, you still can't get me to like you.

  18. pdiddycornchips

    Gawd, this story, the whole episode should be a teachable moment. A young man is dead and the only reason he's dead is the color of his skin. Maybe instead of looking for reasons to explain why he deserved to get shot, we ought to reflect on how often this shit happens and why. Not us. The great US of A. We have people like Tucker who in a world still able to distinguish between right and wrong, would lose his place at the big media table for doing oppo research on a dead kid (and finding nothing. He was an average 17 year old). In our world, all will be forgiven in a couple of weeks when this shit is surpassed by some other story. Tucker will still get invited to lecture us about the evils of liberalism and the virtues of being a conservative. These assholes never pay a price.

  19. rickmaci

    LOL. Like Barry Goldwater, Joe woke up shocked to discover the RepubliKKKan Party has moved so far into the right wing cuckoosphere that it is too shameful, even for him.

  20. qwerty42

    Just listened; Joe seems to have gotten more angry (for a television host) as he went on.

  21. spareme

    I remember when Don Imus kicked Tucker off his show, and had a huge rant and rave fit, refused to let me back on his show – evah. Also, a couple shows where he was still bitchng about him. I believe he called him a twerp – being nice, and all. Of course, coming from Imus….

  22. fuflans

    i imagine when mittbot repeals everything everywhere and we have loads more pipelines america will be great again and we can all put this unpleasantness away in a quiet room.

  23. spends2much

    I started bitching about this idiot at a dinner party tonight, but nobody else knew who the hell he was. I kind of like it that way. Irrelevance is the best gift we can give shitbags like Tucker Carlson.

  24. WonkCynic

    If it was a dead 17 year old Palestinian school girl the liberal Jews would be high fiving each other and shouting "go team" on their way to land grab her daddy's house on the strip.
