Bashir Resigns After S**t in Her Mouth Palin Rant

martin bashir

“After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments. 

I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.”

Bashir’s rant:

    Genghiz the kahn says:

    A better man might have apologised to Sarah Palin’s family for those words.

  2. 2
    Pink pimp Clarrie Mitch says:

    I’m the chief shit in mouth champion !! Brighton loves me !

  3. 3
    Mark Oaten says:

    What’s wrong with what he said? It certainly wasn’t insulting…..quite normal if I’m honest.

  4. 4
    Thomas Thistlewood says:

    Bashir doing some massive racism against Palin there. The very idea that, as a white woman, she should be treated like a black slave from the 1750’s is very offensive.

    I mean, its not like she got caught eating cane now is it?

  5. 5
    Anon. says:

    Wonder if the Beeb have him lined up for something?

  6. 6
    A Hitler says:

    What a horrid man.

    Do as you would be done by, that’s what I say.

  7. 7
    Adophle Milliband says:

    I quite agree old boy

  8. 8
    Leige Asper says:

    Someone mention slavery? I know all about it. Rife where I come from. Manchester.

  9. 9
    Ma­qb­­oul says:

    Sycophantic interviewer who blew smoke up Michael Jackson’s ass and grovelled at the feet of Lady Di now pontificating on the “barbaric” practices of slavery as if he really knew what it was like just because he is black innit.

    Good riddanceyou shalt not be missed.

  10. 10
    Maximus says:

    The politics of hate invariably ignores that what goes around must come around.

  11. 11
    Piers Morgan says:

    Are Americans not fed up yet of disgraced British media cu nts going over there, getting news magazine shows and lecturing them about how they should vote?

  12. 12

    Ad hominem

    Makes you feel better at the time but adds nothing to the argument.

  13. 13
    Mr Anonomous says:

    Palin’s point might not have been elegantly put, but she’s 100% correct.

  14. 14
    Peter Grimes says:


    Piss in yer gob is acceptable, but shite is beyond the pale-skinned.

  15. 15
    Godfrey Bloom says:

    It’s So wrong to make another human be forced to work, he should have sh*t in his mouth himself.

  16. 16
    Bashar says:

    You can bet that Bashir calls Israel an apartheid state and refers to the genocide of the Palis.

  17. 17
    Tent Boy says:

    Mark Oaten, anyone ?

    Anonymous says:

    Russian bankruptcy at the end of the First World War created the conditions for the Bolshevik Revolution and the enslavement of millions. The economic collapse of the Weimar Republic led to the rise of Hitler and the enslavement of millions more. Throughout history there are examples of the collapse of empires leading to the enslavement of peoples. Bashir’s combination of ignorance and malice is chilling.

    Labour Fucktards says:

    What an unutterable cûnt.

    Mark Oaten says:

    He knows how to get me horny.

    He actually did a stitch-up job on Jackson, was nice to his face and then did a hatchet job in the editing.

  22. 22
    Milibandwagon says:

    Can I say something about this?

    There should be a public enquiry.

    This outburst demonstrates just how out of touch this government is in kowtowing to the Chinese

    Lady Di's ghost says:

    Oh Martin, I love it when you talk dirty!

  24. 24

    Tron says:

    I watch this a while ago and I assumed he would get away with it.

    I am so pleased to see the world is not as crazy as I thought.

    What a nasty creep he is.
    I expect to see him on Ch4 soon.

  26. 26
    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Disgraced "Journalists" In Exile Monitoring Service says:

    If he had been trouncing FOX in the ratings for cable-talk stations, he’d still be there. MSNBC has marginally more viewers than a test card, on the best of days. But even Lefties have a problem with someone doing scat-fantasy on a “news” and commentary show, ‘twould appear.

    (BTW, the context, for anyone who does not know it, was that Bashir took umbrage at La Palin for having had the temerity to liken intergenerational debt to a form of indentured servitude being imposed on one’s descendants. His “No, b*tch, that ain’t slavery– this HERE’s slavery!” rant added nothing to the subject in any event.)

  27. 27
    Mike Oxenfire says:

    “I deeply regret what was said”

    Notice how he offers the usual kind of non-apology spouted by leftists when they are caught out — the refusal to accept responsibility for their wrongdoing — as shown by his use of the passive voice.

    Why couldn’t he man up and say “I deeply regret what I said”?

  28. 28
    Martin Bashir says:

    Remember that I’m ethnic so the rules don’t apply to me!

  29. 29
    MJ (circa 1987) EEEEEE HEEEE! says:

    Which face?

  30. 30
    Tea party says:

    You hypocritical righties. What Bashir said was stupid but don’t get all indignant when you know you wouldn’t have given a toss if he’d said it about a Democrat.

    Palin is a complete mong who doesn’t do your cause any favours. Do you really want someone so illiterate and thick on your side? Someone who talked about a “squirmish” and pontificated about family values and abstinence shortly before her daughter got herself up the duff by a redneck hick called Levi?

  31. 31
    Who's Bad says:

    His History face. After that interview, his career was.

  32. 32
    Evan Gayvis says:

    Can’t wait to see if he’s coming to Radio 4. Perfect for us. And for me, sweeties;)


  33. 33
    DB says:

    The irony of this is that it is quite rare for anyone other than lefties to invoke the idea of slavery. It is usually some pr1ck on the left that chooses to mention the subject, usually in the context of demanding a hike in the minimum wage or of protesting against the very idea that the taxpayer might require welfare recipients to work in order to receive handouts.

    Oddly enough, such ludicrous references to slavery have not previously prompted Bashir or any of his fellow cretins to resort to the gutter.

  34. 34
    Johan Hari, now writing for British Airways inflight magazines says:

    And as I visited the plantation, I saw the punishment meted out first hand.

  35. 35
    BBC Bringing Back Communism says:

    We will welcome Comrade Martin Bashir back into our fold to pour dirt and scorn on the Conservative Party and their leader in the run up to the next election.
    His knowledge of slavery will come in useful when our Comrade Red Ed gets into power and we need controls to enslave the English.

  36. 36
    Reid - Previous Labour Home Secretary says:

    I did my Phd on Slavery from Liverpool don’t you know.

  37. 37
    Martin Bashir - soon on your BBC screens says:

    I deeply regret that I have been sacked.
    I hate the right.

  38. 38
    Cor Blimey says:

    You are a fraud judging by your moniker – so why should anyone listen to your loony left rantings?
    By the way this is a British website in case you have not noticed and we do not pillory the Democrats as you do the GOP. Just try and join the queue for Obamanoncare website.

  39. 39
    Just Saying. says:

    Ironic that over two years ago a Lt Colonel in the US Marines went to visit his original family birthplace in a village in Ghana (then the Gold Coast).
    On his return he publicly stated he was glad of slavery as otherwise he would be a poor kid in this village in the middle of nowhere.
    Obama and co were not pleased.

  40. 40
    Anonymous says:

    Bashir has made a total fool of himself.

    He does realize that it is the Dems who opposed the end of slavery and the Reps who forced it through.

    The guy is a complete mong for attacking Palin on what for a Republican was actually a very perceptive point to raise.

  41. 41
    Casual Observer 4 says:

    In this case it lost him his job as well as the argument.

    If he takes time to read a little US history he will perhaps realize just what a mistake he has made and then go back under his rock where he belongs.

  42. 42

    All publicity is good publicity, unless it is your own funeral.

    Nigella The Brave! says:

    Palin has shit for brains that pours out of her monging mouth! No! I will never apologise for stating that truth! Bashir is a hero! She is a thicko and overindulged thicko! What is it with republicans and their shit for brain warmongers?

  44. 44
    A Thicko Republican says:

    Palin is a thick fuck, who has gone for a jog up her own arsehole & got lost up there. The emergency services for thick arseholes(US media) are still trying to rescue her even though she persists in insulting everyone’s intelligence with her inept ‘fillosoffy” on life! No self respect! Useless witch!

    When will she apologise for her stupidity and complete uselessness?!

  45. 45
    Doormats R US says:

    Palin makes a muppet look like a gifted genius. Another Miss Piggy of politicomuppetry with her snout in l trough. She is Jade Goody of politics! Making a shedload of cash for being a uselss, thick Hunt! Moron!

  46. 46
    A stupid Auld Bag in Edinburgh with Brain Rot! says:

    Who is she? Should I care! Does the here and now mean going round in circles for a bunch of parasites who do not know their arse from elbow? Palin is a fucking moron and a parasitical liability!

  47. 47
    Alice says:

    While it is generally agreed that Palin knows fuck all and is a nutter, nevertheless she got lucky and essentially nailed it on the matter of the recent decade or two of accumulated national debt putting the following generation in chains.
    By his response, and his lack of knowledge of history, Bashir showed that he knows fuck all and is a nasty fucker!

  48. 48
    Piers pressure says:

    I heard this guy speak in church some years ago (prior to the Jackson episode) and thought he was pretty weird and twisted back then.

    Looks like the wheels are coming off his career, one by one. He’ll soon be over-taking Morgan in his descent into the abyss.

    A list of things compared to slavery found on the internet:

    Work placements for the unemployed
    Domestic service
    Unpaid internships
    Trades union closed shops (allowing it)
    Trades union closed shops (banning it)
    Websites asking people to write for free
    American NFL players not getting the wages they aspire to
    Having a high-pressure career
    Being an “Ultimate Fighting Championships” fighter
    Lack of a performance rights tax for musicians
    Any employment of any kind
    Food stamps
    Climate Change
    Fur coats
    Eating meat
    Gay Marriage (allowing it)
    Gay Marriage (not allowing it)
    Having accounts on social media sites

    Waterboard board him and deport to B’elmarsh. This is what would happen if Mental M’edhi H’asan was given credibility and a proper job – and I do refer back to all including the MJ and Diana interviews.

    Well, we thought that a few spots on the Toady programme would be a good warm up, then Desert Island discs followed by a short ‘special’ on slavery before making him head of ‘Political equalities, compliance and fairness’ of the entire corporation.

    Has she exploded the Socialist myth of the ‘forever money tree’?
    Has it upset you deeply that the truth about tax is spreading – that what is free for some is taken by force from others or will have to be paid for by future generations?

    Hate to say this guys, but if you stop fixating upon the degree of meaning of the word “slavery”, which is what he is getting heated about, she was actually accurate to several decimal places.

    Equally, on the point of the meaning of the word he didn’t say anything that was to my mind particularly out of order either, as strong as his views plainly are.

    Palin does come across as a bit thick and rather inarticulate, but in fact, what she was saying (though with her customary inelegance) was more or less correct. But she wasn’t talking about slavery directly, she was talking about debt. I’ve no idea what Bashir was on about. As far as I can tell, he just saw it as another chance to embellish his credentials with the gullible by twisting the situation to allow him to say a few strident things which he imagined and hoped would be well received. They weren’t and he came unstuck; good!

This guy’s stupid, mega-over-the-top reaction to a common (if a little over-used, but that just reinforces the point) expression is about as silly as having someone arrested because they get annoyed with their kid and say “I’ll kill you in a minute” – though I’m sure he and many other pillocks like him would want that to happen.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
