MSNBC hypocrisy on full display as Al Sharpton and Joy Reid called on to discuss Roseanne

First of all, let me get this out of the way. Roseanne Barr's Tweet about Valerie Jarrett being the baby of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes was repugnant and completely beyond the pale. The star of the top-rated sitcom on television has paid dearly for that Tweet, as Roseanne has been cancelled.

But the left remains tone deaf. MSNBC yesterday called on Joy Reid to comment on Barr. Reid earlier this year was found to have written many anti-gay blog posts as well as some homophobic Tweets about gays, which, incredulously, she blamed on hackers.

The network also called on Al Sharpton, who hosts PoliticsNation there, to express his outrage about Barr.

And the duo appeared on an MSNBC Townhall together.

Sharpton's bigoted outburst are numerous. He referred to Socrates and other philosophers as "Greek homos." He accused Mormons of not believing in God. The Reverend Al has made anti-Semitic remarks and brought race relations to a new low by fostering the Tawana Brawley hoax.

When is MSNBC going to cancel Sharpton's show? It already axed Reid's program, but that was only because it had lousy ratings.

Barr was wrong. But had she been a leftist, my guess is that she'd still have a TV show.
