Additional demonstrating that tone-deaf hypocrites haven’t any sense of irony, Lawrence O’Donnell went on an unhinged rant and deployed the very techniques he decries.
Thursday, O’Donnell began his showcase on a low word, ranting about how Republican Senators “don’t care” about Capitol Law enforcement officials and or assume their deaths “are value investigating” as a result of the GOP would not help the creation of a fee into the January sixth riots on the US Capitol.
O’Donnell then determined to dig up an outdated favourite boogeyman: the late Senator Joseph McCarthy, and in contrast him to Senate Republicans for the alleged sin of not supporting their fee..
“McCarthyism is again within the type of Kevin McCarthyism, which isn’t only a devotion to the Trump lies in regards to the election, however a devotion to mendacity itself, about every thing, together with January sixth.” stated O’Donnell. “The Republican Senate is now stuffed with McCarthys,” O’Donnell whined. Lawrence O’Donnell is utilizing the identical techniques in opposition to Republicans that Joseph McCarthy was accused of utilizing in opposition to individuals within the Fifties.
Later within the section, O’Donnell made the outrageous accusation that Republicans don’t care about what occurred on January sixth, and the way they’re someway supporting “Mitch McConnell’s lie” that what occurred on January sixth isn’t value investigating. Which is the precise reverse of what McConnell has stated.
It is apparent O’Donnell would not take note of Senator McConnell’s reasoning for his opposition to the fee. Perhaps he would not care, or possibly he doesn’t know find out how to entry McConnell’s press releases on the web.
Both approach, questioning the motives of these you disagree with whereas accusing them of being McCarthyites, is hypocritical and dishonest.

The Final Phrase With Lawrence O’Donnell
LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Republican Senators completely don’t care about home staffers greater than they care about Capitol Law enforcement officials, and the deaths of Capitol Law enforcement officials aren’t value investigating. So far as most Republican Senators are involved, the accidents to over 140 Capitol Law enforcement officials aren’t value investigating. Essentially the most ringing rebuke of a United States Senator in the complete twentieth century was delivered by Legal professional Joseph Welsh in 1954 within the type of a query to the vicious, mendacity Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy, “Have you ever no sense of decency?” That query stopped Joseph McCarthy. Joseph McCarthy died three years later, and the shame of what was then known as McCarthyism appeared to die with him, however McCarthyism is again within the type of Kevin McCarthyism, which isn’t only a devotion to the Trump lies in regards to the election however a devotion to mendacity itself, about every thing, together with January sixth.
The Republican Senate is now stuffed with McCarthys. It’s stuffed with Republicans who don’t care what occurred on January sixth. Republican Senators supporting Mitch McConnell’s lie of what occurred on January sixth, they’re saying it is not value investigating. That is what most Republican Senators are saying. That is Mitch McConnell’s lie, January sixth, not value investigating. Mitch McConnell requested Republicans to vote in opposition to the fee as a private favor to him. A private favor is what he known as it. Now, that could be very not often carried out by senate leaders, calling it in as a private favor, and it’s by no means carried out on critical votes, on vital votes like this.
Earlier this week West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin stated that he was certain that there have been ten good, stable patriots on the Republican facet of the senate who would vote for the fee, and that is what he known as them, good, stable patriots. Joe Manchin pleaded with Republicans privately and publicly, and earlier at present Joe Manchin launched an unusually harsh assertion, for him, about Mitch McConnell, saying, “there is no such thing as a excuse for any Republican to vote in opposition to the fee since Democrats have agreed to every thing they requested for. Mitch McConnell has made this his political place, considering it can assist his 2022 elections. They don’t imagine the reality will set you free, in order that they proceed to dwell in concern.”
