Karen Finney, on her super renegade MSNBC show “Disrupt” on Saturday (you know it’s super renegade because it has such a super renegade name), took some time off from her usual ratings-busting fare to punch down at little-watched Fox News show “The O’Reilly Factor”.

Oh the weather outside is frightful. And the fire is so delightful. And since we’ve no place to go. YOU HATE ALL POOR PEOPLE AND CHILDREN AND BABY JESUS IN A MANGER.

That may not have been a direct quote. Finney is amused by silly Bill O’Reilly (you can tell she is amused because she calls him Billy instead of Bill. Amused I say!) and his annual series of stories and segments titled, and dealing with, “The War On Christmas.”

Finny begins by saying that Bill, (oh sorry, BILLY [amusing!]), has got his 17th century knickers in a twist because people are saying Happy Holidays to one another wantonly and with aforethought. This is entirely false. In fact, O’Reilly has repeatedly stated that he doesn’t care if anyone says Happy Holidays, but only whether people are prevented from saying Merry Christmas. Notice she doesn’t show any clip at this point, she just makes an assertion. In keeping with that fine tradition …

There is a substantive difference between being offended by the phrase “Happy Holidays”, and wishing to be allowed to say “Merry Christmas” instead. An obvious point that one would not think it necessary to make. But one probably isn’t watching MSNBC so one wouldn’t know just how many obvious things MSNBC hosts need one to explain. To one. Or two. I’ve lost count.

The highly amused and amusing Kareny goes on, and here is where she gets really clever, to say that she, spit take, agrees with O’Reilly. She also thinks there is a war on Christmas. Because people are talking about greetings instead of starving children!!! BOOM goes the turnaround. Oh Kareny, you tricksy little minx. I should have known that cleverly affixed rictus was a sly smile.

It should also not escape your notice that she began this segment by mentioning Nelson Mandela. Because you see, while President Obama is talking about income inequality like a BOSS, and the world is mourning Nelson Mandela as a LOSS, petty little Bill is whining about Christmas like a FOX … news host.

So to summarize, Obama cares about the little guy, Fox News hates Nelson Mandela, and Bill O’Reilly doesn’t care about children, and that, dear MSNBC viewer, is why you tune in to this network. Sharp, witty analysis. Well, sharp anyway. … not “analysis” per se. Dull, witty pontificating. … well not witty so much. Dull, predictable pontificating. That is why you tune in.

But if you’re ever looking for a self-satisfied imitation of an opinion delivered by a snotty, preening liberal sticking assiduously to formulaic MSNBC blather-babble, Kareny Finney-y is the vacuous dorm-room-rant disruptor you’ve been missing. Tune in!!

    “Dull, predictable” propaganda!

    Crap, I don’t normally like watching the clips of these morons, because they make me lose whatever my latest meal was.
    So let me say, Caleb, I really love your style and you make even the most moronic, imbecilic “tricksy little minx” so much fun!
    Thank you :)
    That said, she’s a good little prog sychophant, and is as good as the other bubble dwellers who haven’t got a clue about reality outside their circle of Marxist liberal friends.

  • WI4Walker

    This woman doesn’t even make sense. She’s trying to act all intelligent and sensitive, with a little snide thrown in and it just doesn’t work. Poor thing.

  • Nitwitweeter

    Is there a farm in upstate New York with a big fat sow spittin’ out little piglets that have nowhere else to go?

  • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

    So much scum!

  • tinlizzieowner

    Hey Twit. You may have not noticed this. Fox News is the #1 cable news outlet in the nation, O’Reilly’s show is the #1 rated show on Fox and has been for over a decade.
    You work on probably the least watched cable news outlet and nobody has even heard of you. There’s a reason for that and you have just done a great job of demonstrating it. ;-) ;-)

    They must pay the MSNBC show host minimum wage…. and they get what they pay for.

  • billypaintbrush

    What? I tried to follow her, but, what?

  • Army_Pilot1967

    It’s the same old clap-trap from the left. It’s getting tiring and very old, but I know it isn’t going to change so…….I just tune ‘em out.

  • spin43

    I refuse to watch any of this mindless crap. I am going on 4 years without cable tv and feel very liberated. Pull the plug and save some money!

  • johnpaul

    When you get down to it who really watches this crap? Aren’t their rating around the 600K mark? The conga line of freaks at MSLSD are an irrelevant bunch which turn so called journalism into a shock show.

  • Sentinel

    We’re all a little amused with Bill O. these days (and a little appalled too).
    If you want to see and hear a cauldron of hate and ignorance, seasoned with liberal manure, look no further than MSNBC. There’s not one single minute’s worth of credible, unbiased news that comes from that $h1thole. But don’t watch too long… you might gets herpes.
    I guess in the race to be last among television (so-called) news networks, MSNBC is pulling out all the stops. Welcome to the Jerry Springer edition of news rags.

  • Sentinel

    Clever commentary! Bravo.
    “I should have known that cleverly affixed rictus was a sly smile.” Brilliant!

  • boats48

    Karen who? If you hadn’t posted this piece of garbage I would have never known this idiot existed. Bill O deserves to get ribbed now & then but MSLSD is just way out of place. Who, besides my moron brother-in-law, watches that crap?

    • badbadlibs

      Exactly right!
      I had never heard of her either. If RS wouldn’t give her the time of day, I could have happily carried on with life remaining in the dark about her existence.

  • hbnolikeee

    The question I ask is who cares what this Cow moos?

  • mediaaccess

    Mandella was a socialist with a smile. A true patriot to socialists (Marxists) everywhere.

  • notsofastthere

    Karen doesn’t know about welfare, foodstamps, obamaphone? She doesn’t know about Obama stopping Boeing, or any energy devepment in our country? She doesn’t know that Obama hates insurance companies and business in general? She doesn’t know Obama is causing unemployment and piss poor education?

  • badbadlibs

    It’s her lame way of getting some attention, hoping her gig at the obamabootlickers network won’t get cancelled.
    So transparent.

  • badbadlibs

    BTW, anyone know how to be rid of the “blue effect”? I’ve tried all the ways RS suggested to no effect. Well, at least it’s on a thread about a no name.

    • Bill589

      Ie keeps wanting to upgrade. When it does, I get blue. When I ‘restore’ to the old ie, everything is fine again – but Microsoft keeps upgrading my computer when I miss clicking, “no” to the upgrade. So it upgrades, and it’s blue again, until I restore to the old ie – and the cycle continues . . .

      Until I finally switched away from ie to ‘Firefox’. Now everything is fine.

    Moonbats Spouting Nothing But Crap.

    I refuse to watch that channel and it is blocked on my tv. Take note her derogatory manner and language. Tell me again about tolerance you piece of human garbage Karen.

  • JoelDick

    I was watching this on mute and at 1:08, I thought she was talking about implants.

  • macofromoc
