An Open Letter to Keith Olbermann from a Real Liberal: You Sir Are A Whore Who Speaks for No One

by Scott Creighton

I have to apologize to the people of the world, and Syria/Libya/Iraq in particular, for Keith Olbermann’s extremely insensitive and self-serving apology to the world.

THIS WANNABE MSM WHORE DOES NOT SPEAK FOR US

Dear Keith;

What a vain, desperate little man you are to try to pretend to speak for any American any more.

Your words serve the interests of the same neocons and war-mongers you once called out and exposed and I guess that is what 7 years in exile will do to the moral center of a self-centered moralist.

What’s wrong Keith? You don’t get as many groupies and back-stage perks covering Major League Baseball?

There was a time when I waited to watch your 10 minute rants at the end of your show back in the Bush/Cheney days when you spoke a little truth ABOUT power and gave voice to a reasoned rational majority who wanted no more wars for profit and lies and hoped we would eventually live too see the day when criminals like Bush and Cheney and all the other neocons who aided and abetted their treason would see the inside of a prison cell, if not the bleak side of a firing squad.

I noticed today, after being almost completely silent during the 8 long years of Obama/Clinton criminality, you are trying, once again, to strike that, very profitable, angry self-righteous tone as you rant on and on about President Trump.

Might I point out that Trump is not Cheney or Bush and at this point and he has not lied and bombed and killed and maimed like President Obama and Sec. Clinton did all those years when you seem to have lost that condescending, self-satisfied voice of yours.

Nor has he hired thousands of “moderate” terrorists to kill civilians and undermine nations like Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Libya, Iran, Iraq and Yemen like President Obama and Hillary Clinton did for eight long years… years you Mr. Olbermann, chose to say nothing.

Painfully and to my disgust, I have watched you Keith, over the last few months, turn yourself into a flaming establishment whore slinging outrageous accusations and condemnations whenever Trump did anything the masters of the universe deemed unfit for presidential behavior.

In fact, it seems you take your talking points memos this time around from the very neocons and war-mongers you used to eviscerate with ease back in the Cheney days.

Permit me to say, it would certainly appear you are trying to cash in on your dusty progressive street cred that you built with your special comments all those years ago and you are doing so in order to promote one lie about President Trump after another and to incite hatred and possibly even violence from Hillary Clinton’s disheveled Clintonistas.

But I have seen NOTHING like what I just saw you deliver on your GQ “Resistance” crap of a webzine channel.

It led me instantly to conclude that you are a slut of a turncoat who is clearly looking to feather your own nest (and get back on a major network?) by producing some of the most offensive and morally dishonest propaganda I have seen come from the mouths of ANY Mockingbird Asset in a long, long time.

I mean, you have to go back to Carl Rove or Bill O’Reilly in the 2002-2003 run-up to the Iraq invasion for anything you could possibly compare it to.

For those of you who don’t know, last night, Keith Olbermann issued an apology to the world for “traitor” Trump who has, according to Olbermann, “turned his back on everything good America has stood for”.

This is how he began his deeply offensive hate-mongering diatribe.

“To the people of Syria and Iraq and France and Germany and Mexico and Canada and the world permit me to apologize on behalf of the citizens of America for the unforgivable actions of the man who has assumed power here. I speak for those of us who, unlike Trump, unlike the sycophants who surround him unlike hate-filled souls and the conscience optional bigots who applaud him, unlike the Russian puppeteers who may be manipulating him, I speak for those of us who have not forgotten and who will not forget that we are the descendants of the immigrants, often the refugees, we are the modern equivalent of those who this pig Trump has just banished and degraded and in many cases has likely, literally sentenced to death.” Keith Olbermann

Keith, you have the gall to apologize for the American people to the world? From what elevated position do you assume the moral authority to speak for us in this manner? That of ESPN MLB announcer or that of a pompous, self-righteous little man trying his level best to reinsert himself into some kind of network line-up for a bigger payday?

And of all things, you apologize for this?

Trump has every right as president to withhold entry of any person or group into this country if said person or group poses a threat to the national interest. THAT’S THE LAW, YOU DIPSHIT. Look it up.

He also has the constitutional authority to do so and if you don’t believe me, ask a legal scholar like Jonathan Turley perhaps. Or you could ask some of your idiot frat-boy colleagues at ESPN but I doubt they know the first thing about law.

Also keep in mind, over the first 24-hours of the travel ban, 305,000 people came into this country and only something like 104 of them were detained for additional questioning and I think all but two of them were released, INTO THE COUNTRY, after a couple hours delay.

What’s more, and this is the biggest one… you dare apologize to the people of Syria… BECAUSE SOMEONE IS DELAYING ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES OF A FEW TRAVELERS OR REFUGEES AFTER WE LITERALLY DESTROYED THEIR COUNTRY UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA’S WATCH, YOU SYCOPHANTIC PIECE OF TRASH?!?

Let me show you a simple visual aid which will make it easy for a sports broadcaster like yourself to try to understand big concepts such as the one I just laid out for you:

keith-truth

THOUSANDS dead… MILLIONS made into refugees, displaced from their homes, their lives, their careers, their children… all due… ALL DUE to President Obama’s regime change operation in Syria and his continued wars of occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan and his “humanitarian intervention” in Libya… you insipid piece of crap.

And you DARE apologize to the world because Obama’s terrorist contractors who took part in that are being vetted at the airports?

“At the Pentagon, Defense Secretary James Mattis is compiling a list of Iraqis who helped U.S. troops during the war, whom he wants to exempt from the ban

Iraqis who were granted what’s known as special immigrant visas have been caught in the ban, with some detained at U.S. airports over the weekend. The special immigrant visa program allows Iraqis and Afghans who helped the United States as interpreters and in other roles during the wars in their countries to resettle in America.” The Hill

A few liberal journalists remained true to their souls during the dark ages of the Obama administration when we were expected to sit down and shut up because a Democrat was in office.

Rightly, we were offended and protested the invasion of Iraq and subsequently continued our dissent as President Obama planned on Terror Tuesdays his Death Squads from Above campaign that killed thousands of innocent civilians in countries far greater in number that Bush “W” ever dreamed of invading.

For that we take pride in our work and the continuity of our morality in spite of partisan or professional considerations.

You, Mr. Olbermann, can know nothing about that and therefore you have no moral authority to offer any apology for anyone who still has a conscience intact in this country.

And since when does winning an election equate to “assuming power” Mr. Olbermann?

I know the CIA and the trolls at the State Department have long since equated the two in other countries when the people dared “vote the wrong way”.

You should know that sir, as you used to rail about such things before you sold your soul.

Taking up the language of the regime change actors, Mr. Olbermann?

Slipping them into the consciences of the so-called “left” of your audience, are we?

Did you wonder why I made the Mockingbird reference earlier? Now you know.

But you knew then, didn’t you?

I am not one of what you call “the conscience optional bigots who applaud him”. No sir.

Not even you on your best self-satisfied rant could be as antagonistic and skeptical of President Trump’s first week in office (and his months after the election) as I have sir.

That is a fact committed to history and available right here on my website for all to view.

But to call so many people, tired, angry, discouraged people who simply want CHANGE, (the kind Obama promised eight years ago but never delivered) … to call them such horrible, bigoted things as you did sir… it is offensive for me…

…. and I reside to the left of Bernie Sanders.

You sir are playing into the same failed identity politics and fear mongering that lost Hillary Clinton the election to such a man. Such a man who could ONLY have beaten someone so corrupt, so criminal and so disconnected as Hillary Clinton in a general election.

And you think the answer today is more of the same hate-filled disrespectful rhetoric? Have you learned nothing or do you simply have nothing more to offer?

“Conscience optional”? Need I remind you Keith who’s efforts you now serve? Hypocrite.

“Russian puppeteers who MAY be manipulating him”? Really? REALLY!

You now peddle unsupported New McCarthyite Red-baiting slander straight from the Clinton-backing CIA Keith?

God how the mighty have fallen, huh?

Mr. Olbermann, Donald Trump has not sentenced anyone to death. Refugees will be vetted and either returned to their point of origin or permitted to enter the United States if they pose no risk, meaning, if they did not serve as “moderate terrorists” in places like Syria, Libya, Somalia, Iraq or Yemen.

But President Obama sentenced many to death on Terror Tuesday, Mr. Olbermann. Need I remind you:

What lies at the nexus of Obama’s targeted drone killings, his self-serving leaks, and his aggressive prosecution of whistleblowers is a president who believes himself above the law, and seems convinced that he alone has a preternatural ability to determine right from wrong.

Peter Van Buren a 24-year veteran Foreign Service Officer at the State Department.

“The New York Timesrecent revelation that President Obama, operating off a government “kill list,” has been personally directing who should be targeted for death by military drones (unmanned aerial assault vehicles) merely pushes us that much closer to that precipitous drop-off to authoritarianism. Should we fail to recognize and rectify the danger in allowing a single individual to declare himself the exception to the rule of law and assume the role of judge, jury, and executioner, we will have no one else to blame when we plunge once and for all into the abyss that is tyranny.” John Whitehead

No apologies or self-aggrandizing rants do you offer for the victims of President Peace Prize’s double-tap drone strikes on funerals or wedding ceremonies Mr. Olbermann. Where are their near-tear performances from you on GQ magazine I wonder.

Donald Trump has killed no one with this order sir and it seems he has only angered Hillary’s old terrorist buddies and their handlers and a couple thousand misled “progressives” who have been looking DESPERATELY to find something, ANYTHING, on which they can hang their “get him out! and install HILLARY” dreams.

Shame on you Keith for playing up to their fears, anger and dread… for your own profit.

Shame on you Keith for taking up the cause of those you once rightly opposed every weekday night for years.

Shame on you Keith for becoming the very thing you pitied in your heyday.

I do not stand with Trump but I am a conscientious enough journalist to report on the good with the bad regardless of my political affiliation or my personal ambition. That, Mr. Olbermann, means I have surpassed you as a journalist. Not what you were, not by a long shot… but what you have sadly and embarrassingly become.

When you offer yourself up to the world as a spokesperson for a people, you invite condemnation if your motives are untrue and your rhetoric unsound.

This is truth of the overly connected the world we live in.

Your pathetic, self-serving, sycophantic PR stunt of an apology is shameful and only serves to further expose the rot that is at the core of the politics and journalism in America today.

It’s sad to see you like this Keith. Like a former champion taking one to many punches, one to many fights, you have embarrassed not only yourself but the game in a way that is impossible to unsee once seen.

But true fans remember them for what they were, don’t they? And as their heroes slump around the bases or throw interception after interception, we all lose a bit of the memories of greatness they once possessed.

Brett Farve, Rodger Clemons, Willie Mays… do the names hold meaning for you Mr. Olbermann? They should. They are your only colleagues now sir.

You do not speak for us Mr. Olbermann and you will not be redeemed in the eyes of the corporate media to once again ascend the heights of their networks to that elevated position you once held.

You are, in short, an embarrassment Keith and though it is true it is better to be a has-been than it is to be a never-was, it is better to be the latter than it is to be an aging desperate whore without a shred of self-respect who will say and do anything for the pimps you used to condemn.

I pity you.

Never presume to speak for anyone again because honestly… you don’t even speak for yourself anymore.

  1. Oh, what a beautiful rant, Scott. Well done!!! In fact, much much better than just well done… Thank you!

    All of the brain washed bubble-liberals’ noggins will short circuit if they were to read this… I can almost see the smoke coming out of their ears…

    • i think the blog rant is a dying artform. im not as good at it as I once was. too worried about bad language in my old age I suppose. but at least I haven’t sold out like that suckup pieceofshit Olbermann has. so there’s that 🙂

  2. Love it

  3. Bravo!!! Brilliant, thank you

  4. Annnd (((BOOM))) goes the dynamite!!

  5. Well said!

  6. Let’s start calling him Keith “Mr. Konscience Optional” Olbermann given how he’s clearly projecting his own moral failure.

  7. Great rant, thank you! I used to watch Keith faithfully back during the Bush era and am sorry to see what he has become.

    • Or, perhaps what he has always been!

      I think the big difference between then and now, is that back then he was not aware that he was being used as a propaganda tool to usher in the Obama presidency. But now, he consciously wants to be a propaganda tool.

  8. A five-star piece, Scott. Thanks very much for calling this fella out and taking care of him.

  9. Hi Scott… Was wondering what your take’s on Tucker Carlson, who has also been resurrected and seems like he is destined to become Trump’s gatekeeper at Fox…

    Between Oblerman and Tucker, seems like vintage mockingbirds have been pulled out of hibernation and set loose on the people. Perhaps they are the Republican Wrestling Federation. Tucker on the red corner, Keith on the blue. It’s all a show.

    • Tucker Carlson… jesus… yeah, I have noticed his resurrection as of late. His is more complete in that he at least is on a network, whereas Olbermann is still puttering around on a webzine. I guess Tucker is supposed to be something like a Olbermann for the right of the right (as opposed to the left of the right which is the unDemocratic Party)
