MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell and Pastor John Hagee have been engaged in a war of words lately, stemming from O’Donnell’s characterization of Hagee’s infamous sermon in which he preached that God used Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust as a means of getting Jews to return to Israel.
On Friday, Buster Wilson decided to weigh in on the dispute on his “AFA Today” radio program where he called on the network to “clean the stable” of hosts like “the admitted lesbian Rachel Maddow” and Lawrence O’Donnell:
National news networks do have … a tendency for mischaracterizing the works, motivations, and the actions of religious people. Do you notice that? Well, I’ll tell you, one of the worst, one of the worst is MSNBC. When you take the likes of Chris Matthews, and when you take Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow, you have some of the most anti-Christian, anti-religious people on journalistic television today. No question about it.
We need to let MSNBC know it’s time for them to clean the stable out of those people who are so anti-Christ, so hateful. When you listen to the admitted lesbian Rachel Maddow, when you listen to Lawrence O’Donnell and some of the things that Chris Matthews says and some of the other people that they’ve had to chasten on their network with either getting them off the network or giving them time off without pay, this network needs, I say this network needs to do a little cleaning up in their house because absolutely it’s out of phase with the reality of what’s going on in the rest of the world.
Allow us to point out that Wilson is General Manager of the American Family Radio Networks, which just so happens to be the radio network that provides Bryan Fischer with two hours of radio time every day from which to spew all manner of unmitigated bigotry:
As general manager, Wilson presumably has some say over the barrage of hate-filled bigotry that Fischer unleashes on a daily basis on his radio station … so perhaps he ought to get his own house in order before he starts telling others that they need to do some house cleaning.
