Yeah, but after that he tried to pivot and say that the people he's talking about are "irrelevant," which is a weird statement right after saying they're "destroying the Republican Party."

If they're destroying the GOP, doesn't that make them pretty relevant?

I think citizens united put more money in too. Sometimes I think that one reason that the Republican party went over the crazy cliff is that there are people using the party to make money for themselves rather than policy.

For instance take Sarah Palin, she was soliciting funds for her presidential run right up to the minute that she admitted that she wasn't going to run. She was sending out mass mailings...

And her daughter admitted that she knew months before that she couldn't really run. She was just taking the rubes for their money. By the way the daughter's testimony could actually be used in court against Palin, but the way those super-pacs do it, there's no laws to break.

Joe calling "those other people" bad is kinda rich. How many times has he had wingnuts and tea party cranks on his show to espouse their views?

Hey Joe wake up, you are a part of the Conservative media that you are bemoaning. I'll admit not in the same way that Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are, but you have been doing your little part for years. Remember when you have had people like Pat Buchanan, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, and Tucker Carlson on your show, just to name a few?

(Edit: It isn't that I feel he should not have had them on the show at all, it is that when they are he should do more to challenge their crazier assertions.)

WOW Scarborough has finally told the truth for once.

Not to mention the infamous "BENGHAZI BENGHAZI BENGHAZI!" moment.

Scarborough talking about "conservative bullies" has more than a little projection to it.

All of Scarborough's critiques of the right really, really obviously apply to him. It is mind blowing that nobody has actually pointed this out to his face: he constantly touts his 'independence' by pointing to comments like this he periodically makes.
Projection, indeed.
Dishonest ass-covering: of course! Before the right went extreme, Joe-Joe was the typical, mainstream republican. He hasn't changed much. Since they gained all those Dixiecrats in the 1960s, they've learned to be extremely dishonest whilst pretending to be the righteous - yet reasonable - ones.

I'll agree that there is a little disingenuousness in what he's doing because he won't challenge the likes of Coulter or Malkin and others to their face and explain why what thry're doing is bad for conservatives and bad for the country, and in so not doing he is enabling them because they get to promote their toxicity.

And I agree, Charles, that he's trying tohave it both ways, wbich undermines his argume
Nevertheless, he was still spot on in this clip, and I think he desetves some credit for that. It would be truly ballsy for him to take a stand similar to that of someone like David Frum, for instance., but that might be asking a little too much of him.
