Let me put this succinctly. Forget letting MSNBC host one of the GOP’s primary debates.

MSNBC’s Alex Wagner had Arsalan Iftikhar, founder of TheMuslimGuy.com, on to discuss Gov. Jindal’s comments… “I think Governor Jindal is protesting a bit too much. He might be trying to scrub some of the brown off his skin as he runs to the right in a presidential bid,” said Iftikhar. – Washington Free Beacon

Explain to me why we should even let them be credentialed for Republican events from now on. It’s fairly clear from this that MSNBC has worked out that they can make any kind of outrageous statement that they like about a Republican and/or conservative, provided that they can find a suitable minority shill that will be happy to make the outrageous statements in exchange for some television time.  Which is what happened here, and it was detestably filthy of the network.  There’s no need to reward them for it.

PS: Getting a Muslim to insult the ethnicity of the child of Punjabi Hindus was particularly nasty, by the way. To put in Western terms, that’s much like (but not exactly) allowing a Protestant activist from Belfast to make highly rude comments about a politician from Dublin… “because they’re both Irish.” Read a history book sometime, MSNBC, willya? Or at least look at a bloody map.
