MSNBC Crew Gave Disabled Veteran Huge Middle Finger At Polling Location

Published

on

It’s become very obvious that the left and the media will stoop to just about anything to stop people from voting the wrong way. And for a bunch of people who put emphasis on civility and tolerance for others, they seem to lack both many times. This is a perfect example of that… an MSNBC crew just gave a disabled veteran a huge middle finger when he went to vote.

MSNBC decided to set up to interview and record people voting in Houston. So what do they do? They block off two handicapped parking spaces and a handicapped loading zone to set up their gear. That takes being a jerk to a whole new level. One disabled Air Force veteran with MS took pics and put it out there for everyone to see and marvel at. KHOU 11 has the scoop:

HOUSTON — A disabled Air Force veteran posted photos online of an MSNBC news crew blocking handicapped parking outside an early voting place in southwest Houston Tuesday.

“They should know better,” James Berrie, the veteran said.

The crew covering Texas elections at the Bayland Community Center used two handicapped spaces and one handicapped loading zone to park a camera, lights, equipment and correspondent Mariana Atencio, Berrie said.

He and his wife, Sarah, drove their van to the center for early voting. When they arrived around 8 a.m., the couple saw MSNBC blocking the only van accessible parking spot. So the Berries parked in a back lot. Cars crammed around the couple’s van left little room for Berrie’s ramp and power chair to move.

Different kind of voter suppression. EDIT: Thank you all for your support. This has gotten bigger than I thought, but…

“I didn’t even know what to do or to say because I was just shocked,” he said.

Berrie, who has multiple sclerosis, said the crew agreed to move when confronted. However, 15 minutes later when the couple finished voting and returned outside the crew remained.

“They had made no effort whatsoever to move,” Berrie said. “Their job is more important than accessibility. There were so many other places to do (their live shot). But you chose to do it here. We’re like, ‘No. We gotta stand up.'”

The couple asked MSNBC’s crew to move again. Even with help from a group of firefighters standing nearby nothing changed, Berrie said.

“(The MSNBC crew) kept coming back like we’ll move in two minutes,” he said. “We’ll move in like three minutes. We’re going live. We’ve got a shot. We’re going live in like three minutes. We gotta do this and we’re just like, ‘No. You have to move. It’s not right. You know it’s not right.’”

Berrie’s wife said a producer even kneeled on the ground at one point and begged for more time.

MSNBC offered no comment to KHOU 11 News.

On Twitter, though, Atencio apologized.

“We made the wrong call (Tuesday) by using a disabled parking spot for our live shot in (Texas),” she wrote. “There’s no excuse. I apologize to the two people who were on their way to vote as it’s one of the most important parts of our democracy. We’d never want to jeopardize anyone’s ability to do so.”

“I’m glad that she realized that,” Berrie said. “I’m hopeful that in the future it won’t happen again.”

So Berrie shared the exchange on Facebook. He is not mad at MSNBC or the media, though. Berrie is just tired of seeing people treat handicapped parking like it doesn’t matter.

Trump Gives Adam Schiff New Nickname And He Is Fuming

President Donald Trump has now given Democrat California Rep. Adam Schiff his own nickname.

In a tweet on Sunday the president referred to the congressman, who has been a thorn in his side, as “Little Adam Schitt.”

Go ahead. Say it aloud.

The tweet came after Rep. Schiff appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and said that Democrats would challenge the president’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as the interim attorney general, The Hill reported.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif), the likely next chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that Democrats will challenge the appointment of new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.

“Yes and yes,” Schiff told ABC’s “This Week” when asked if Democrats would push back against Whitaker’s appointment and if he is still concerned that he poses a threat to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Moscow.

“I think the appointment is unconstitutional,” Schiff said, adding that Whitaker’s appointment has to be subject to Senate confirmation.

“But it’s also in conflict with a more specific statute,” he said. “There’s a succession statute for the Justice Department, which makes it different from other departments.”

Schiff said that succession statute cannot be preempted by presidential appointment.

“So it’s a flawed appointment, but the biggest flaw from my point of view is that he was chosen for the purpose of interfering with the Mueller investigation,” Schiff said, echoing claims of other Democrats.

Last year, Whitaker criticized the Mueller probe and explained how it could be undercut by strategies such as limiting its funding.

Reports indicate that Mueller is very close to filing his final report from his investigation.

Schiff warned on Sunday that Democrats will be keeping a very close eye on Whitaker.

“He needs to know that if he takes any action to curb what Mr. Mueller does, we’ll find out about it. We’ll expose it,” Schiff said.

Schiff did not take kindly to his new name.

Muslim Willing to Sacrifice ‘Millions’ of Lives To Retake ‘Palestine’

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: WND

“Palestine” must be retaken by Muslims even if it costs “millions” of lives.

That’s the opinion of an imam in Florida whose recent sermon on the topic was uncovered by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

The Oct. 12, 2018, message was from Hasan Sabri of the Islamic Center of South Florida in Pompano Beach.

He said a “believing Muslim’s” position is that Palestine is “Islamic waqf land that was occupied by force” – and that it should be liberated “even if this leads to the martyrdom of tens of millions of Muslims.”

MEMRI reported Sabri also said, “Allah wants each and every one of you to be a man with a cause … for which he lives and dies,” noting that the Palestinian cause “is being plotted against” with “the Deal of the Century.”

The research organization explained, “According to Pompano Beach elected officials, Sabri has recited invocations annually at Pompano Beach city meetings since 2005, and the ICOSF has had a peaceful, 25-year presence in the city, even serving as a polling station. In September 2017, Imam Sabri was a panelist at ‘Interfaith and Race Relations Peace and Acceptance Conference’ at Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth, Florida.”

But the building that is listed as the address of the ICOSF is owned by the North American Islamic Trust, which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist financing case in America history. The case, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation, resulted in convictions and imprisonment of several U.S.-based Hamas leaders.

Sabri said: “Take the Palestinian cause, for example. It is now being plotted against with a deal they call the ‘Deal of the Century.’ Why do they call it a ‘deal?’ Because whoever is involved in this treason is not a man of principles. These are peddlers, not men with a cause. All they want are positions and jobs. That is why for them, the cause is nothing but a deal, a matter of give and take. For them, it is nothing but a deal.”

He continued: “But what is the position of a believing Muslim about the Palestinian cause? That Palestine in its entirety is Islamic land, and there is no difference between what was occupied in 1948 and 1967. There is no difference between this village or that village, this city or that city. All of it is Islamic waqf land that was occupied by force. The responsibility for it lies with the entire Islamic nation, and the [Palestinians] should benefit from this land. If a land is occupied or plundered, it should be liberated from the occupiers and plunderers, even if this leads to the martyrdom of tens of millions of Muslims.”

He added, “This is the ruling, and there is no room for discussion or concessions.”

He also said: “[Atheists] always belong to minorities – national minorities, religious sects or minorities, and they have an agenda of destroying this Islamic nation, so they adopt atheism, not because it makes sense, but because it serves their approach. That is why you find most of these people, like I said, calling for goals that are opposite from the general goals of this nation. Our goal is to unite people, to unite Muslims. Their goal is to fragment Muslims even more. Wherever there is an opportunity to split a Muslim country into two, or three, or 10 parts, you will find that they are for it. What does that have to do with atheism? It has to do with an agenda. That’s all.”
