IDIOCY! Maddow claims she doesn’t know what started ‘scary flareup’ between Israel and Gaza

How in the heck can Maddow be this severely uninformed about why this ‘scary flareup’ has begun? Does she or her producers not even watch her own network? Or any news at all? Or is she so blind with bias that she’s willing not only to be a propaganda outlet for Obama, but also for Hamas?



Via Newsbusters:

MADDOW (after referring to President Obama’s visit to Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar): And of course the whole trip to Asia comes in the midst of a very scary flareup between Israel and Gaza. Now, we do not know exactly what started this most recent round of fighting, but we do know that an Israeli air strike killed the top commander of Hamas in Gaza on Wednesday. And we know then that that was followed by rocket attacks aimed at southern Israel and then Tel Aviv and then today, Jerusalem. Israel has been pounding Gaza with air strikes. The attacks appeared today to be rapidly escalating, including signs that Israel is preparing for a ground incursion into Gaza. The New York Times tonight citing reports of Israeli tanks massing on the border with Gaza.

All of a sudden I’m feeling a little bad for all the liberals in this clip that said they get their news from Maddow. On second thought, no I’m not.

  1. Iran is supplying Hamas with weapons to test Israels strength before they attack Israel. AND I do believe that Iran already has a nuclear warhead. This world is at the brink and I weep for my children and grandchildren. Maybe the Mayan calendar is right, on Dec. 21st of this year gravity will reverse and armageddon will follow. God help US and all our friends and family around the world. Pray as much as you can.

  2. They are firing on Jerusalem ? Would it not be something if one of there rockets slammed into the Great Golden Topped dome of their Sacred Mosque ????????

  3. Read the Hamas Charter, biotche. She would be stoned to death for her lifestyle, in most muslim majority countries. I’d love to watch a live feed of her jogging in Tahrir Square.

  4. I know what started the latest flareup. The Jews in Israel drew air into the lungs, and then exhaled. The Jews then had the nerve to keep repeating this over and over again thus offending the prophet.

  5. This recent round of fighting was started by your man, Obama and his communist ilk Clinton, Rice, etc. Arab Spring, remember? Arab nightmare. I hope there’s a missle aimed straight at the media.

  6. Mz Maddow, if one (hamas), keeps poking the porcupine’s backside with a stick, while trying to kill him, you might get a face full of reality.

  7. I absolutely believe her. I truly believe she is dense enough not to know what is going on in the real world.

  8. Actually this is kind of a reasonable comment. We know that Hamas launched rockets and we can make (ideological) conjectures as to why they might have taken this action, but there was no specific incident that triggered the rocket launchings. I believe that’s what she’s getting at.

  9. Institutionally, it is called ‘interpretation bias’… but for those of us who simply use common sense, it is usually called: head-up-your-butt-itis.

    Seriously, ‘interpretation bias’ is where, no matter how strong the facts or data, if it is not confirmation of expected results or worldview, it doesn’t exist, or is invalid. “Science” has this just as bad if not worse than the LSM, and everyone has this to a certain extent.

    In plain english: if what you see doesn’t tell you that you are right, you immediately assume that the ‘evidence’ is wrong, no matter how stupid it makes you look. You can’t see what you don’t want to, and only see what you expect to.

    ie: “It’s those dang jews who caused this war!” or “Man-made global warming is the greatest threat to mankind! – Sea levels are so high that we’re already underwater and don’t know it yet!”

  10. Maddow is one of those vicious hosts that has learned to make lots of money by selling oral garbage. I don’t believe that she will ever become a good person. She doesn’t care about anyone, her country nor Israel. It is all about making blood money with the pain and sorrows of others. I wish she would be at least a little bit intelligent or somehow decent to analyze some day her own behavior and lack of humanity. This is also true for Maher who feels above human kind and who exhibits a very rudimentary intellect every single time he opens his disgusting mouth. These two are the kind of people who perfectly can connect with Obama and entourage. These two and of course other MSM useful idiots should pay additional taxes for the garbage they sell as it is not recyclable and infests our sensitivity.

  11. lets see……the homosexual beheading terrorist group Hamas started firing rockets into Israel……and for all Testaserone in you, you just can’t figure out Israels problem with these guys…….time to loosen the strap on a notch Madcow….you really can’t afford anymore loss of oxygen to yer brain you fecken twit

  12. A flare up?!? What??? It is a freaking war started by the radical muslims who have vowed to destroy Israel. Unlike the US (and this really is maddening) Israel is not just sitting there getting their asses kicked by a bunch of lunatics living 1300 years in the past.

  13. She knows damn well what is going on, but is putting the Lie forth for the masses to believe. This is no mistake, it is deliberate obfuscation and is wicked.

  14. Maddow’s compulsion to confess is not surprising. I am certain she
    doesn’t have a clue what is going on over there. She is a liberal
    and therefore myopic.

  15. Of course she knows what started this. But she inverted it… that the Gaza rocket launches were caused by Israel’s strike against the Hamas military commander.

    But did you notice how almost… breathless she was to repeatedly emphasize Israel, Israeli airstrike killing… Israel has been pounding Gaza with airstrikes… Israel is preparing for a ground incursion… Israeli tanks massing on the border…

    Breathless she was indeed.

    She also didn’t read the NY Slimes in arare admission of truth:

    JERUSALEM — Israel on Wednesday launched the most ferocious assault on Gaza in four years after persistent Palestinian rocket fire, hitting at least 20 targets in aerial attacks that killed the top military commander of Hamas, http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/15/world/middleeast/israeli-strike-in-gaza-kills-the-military-leader-of-hamas.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

  16. Need to send those videos from earlier on here about Israel to Maddow. Perhaps then she may start to understand. Probably not though….

  17. Simple, really.
    She cannot allow herself to know, because knowing clashes with her view of the conflict.
    So, she doesn’t know. Not knowing allows her to justify her worldview. Of course this flies in the face of all the facts in the matter, but this is a shining example of why you cannot convince a liberal to abandon their views using logic.

    1. That’s not what she said yesterday. She said directly and point blank that Israel started the war in Gaza. Now, she says she doesn’t know.

      If this is the case, she is obviously too STUPID to work in the news business.

  18. “There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.” This is the first thing which came to mind when I heard Ms. Maddow’s ignorance of what is transpiring between Israel and Palestine and when I looked up the origin of the quote it turns out it is a paraphrase of Jeremiah 5:21

    “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears and hear not.”

    When you think about how long ago Jeremiah wrote this verse it is astounding with as “smart” as mankind thinks they have become they are as stupid as they ever were.

  19. Maybe it was Maddow who scrubbed the al Qaeda references from Susan Rice’s talking points before she went on those television shows? I’m just surprised Rice didn’t go on MSNBC too. She certainly would have had a arm welcome there, and possibly a date from Maddow. What’s not to love if you’re a liberal?

  20. Well, I’m also not sorry for the lefties who get their ‘news’ from Maddow and the rest of them. But I am angry that so many are totally comfortable with getting whatever ‘news’ they get severely pre-digested.
    They’ve become incapable of thinking for themselves.
    One day, Reality will bite them. I hope I’m still around when that happens.

  21. She is shielding viewer so that when Israel takes care of the business at hand she will be the rag headed screaming idiots side of things….. maybe they can burn an MSNBC flag while they are dancing around like fools.

    She gets her answers and talking points from above……the stage is being set

  22. She isn’t ignorant, she is shielding her viewers from reality because she cares for them and radical disconnects from your insular worldview can be scary.

    I’m only half kidding.

  23. Flareup?! It’s been going on for a long time. 7th century pedophile worshipers, who copied the Torah to get their incendiary text, hate Jews. Nothing new. It’s just time for Israel to realize that wiping out the copy cats may benefit the world immensely. Get some, Israel!!

    1. Don’t quote me on this, but I believe it is the Calvinist theologian, James White who has said that when Muslims claim the Bible has been corrupted, they are absolutely correct. That corruption is called The Koran.

    2. They certainly would if those traitorous deadbeats in either party would just support them rather than throw out road blocks.

    1. Oh, but it was Israel – why did they have to go and kill that perfectly innocent terrorist who was only sitting in his car! /sarc

    2. Of course she knows what started this. But she inverted it… that the Gaza rocket launches were caused by Israel’s strike against the Hamas military commander.

      But did you notice how almost… breathless she was to repeatedly emphasize Israel, Israeli airstrike killing… Israel has been pounding Gaza with airstrikes… Israel is preparing for a ground incursion… Israeli tanks massing on the border…

      Breathless she was indeed.

      She also didn’t read the NY Slimes in a rare admission of truth:

      JERUSALEM — Israel on Wednesday launched the most ferocious assault on Gaza in four years after persistent Palestinian rocket fire, hitting at least 20 targets in aerial attacks that killed the top military commander of Hamas, http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11

      1. The degrees they’ll go to, by omitting certain facts, and emphasizing other facts to try and invert the truth is mind boggling. For all intents and purposes they are lying – portraying the cause of the conflict as being the absolute opposite of the real cause, even though “technically”, they can always say they never lied.

        This would be analogous to Edward R. Murrow reporting about the Battle of Midway, “We do not know exactly what started the conflict between Japan and the U.S., but the Americans launched a devestating attack today that destroyed a Japanese carrier group and inflicted massive death and destruction on the Japanese”

      2. Also a testament to what a great “news organization” they are, that they “don’t know exactly what caused this latest round of fighting”, when anyone with an ounce of curiousity can find out.
