July 6th, 2022 10:19 PM

Liberal radio host Thom Hartmann uncorked a wild-eyed conspiracy theory on Twitter where Ron DeSantis would steal the 2024 election from Joe Biden and then Republican militias would murder thousands of protesters in the streets.


Bill Maher Grills Leftists Over Concentration Camp Comparisons

June 24th, 2019 5:31 PM
It seems as of late, the preferred tactic among liberals and the media is to brand any policy idea that they fundamentally disagree with as on par with the atrocity of the Holocaust. From CNN host Don Lemon comparing President Trump to Hitler to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez referring to detention centers on the southern border as “concentration camps.” While many rush to condemn these…

Lefty Radio Host to Steyer: ‘Buy Clear Channel’ and Silence Trump!

June 29th, 2018 10:23 AM
Progressive radio host Thom Hartmann has some advice for impeachment crusader Tom Steyer — buy a radio network. Hartmann wrote on left-wing Salon on June 26, “If liberal billionaires like Tom Steyer want to have a real and lasting impact on American politics, they should think seriously about buying a nationwide radio network.”

Larry King: Second Amendment ‘Poorly Written’ to Stop Slave Uprisings

March 29th, 2018 6:36 PM
Larry King, who hosted his own eponymous CNN show for 25 years and is the anchor for the Russian propaganda channel RT's PoliticKING and Larry King Now, stated on Wednesday that the Second Amendment to the Constitution should be repealed because is’s “poorly written” and was passed by Southerners in the U.S. Senate to fend off slave uprisings.

Thom Hartmann Actually Claims Majority of GOP Wants 'Medicare for All'

February 19th, 2018 12:50 PM
Left wing radio host Thom Hartmann, as those familiar with his rants are aware, has long railed against Republicans as hellbent on dismantling not just the welfare state provisions of Lyndon Johnson's so-called Great Society, most specifically Medicare, but also the core provisions of Roosevelt's New Deal, with Social Security topping the list.

Thom Hartmann: Trump's Tweet Slamming Gillibrand is 'Impeachable'

December 14th, 2017 8:29 PM
Yeah, good luck with that. The perpetual outrage machine that is the left's pathological loathing for President Trump keeps reaching new lows in absurdity, albeit only on an hourly basis. Plenty of liberals have labeled Trump's tweet slamming Democrat Senator and potential 2020 opponent Kirsten Gillibrand as "sexual harassment." But liberal radio host Thom Hartmann went beyond that and described…

Maher Calls Cruz 'Creep' and 'Liar,' Likens Rubio's Religion to ISIS

January 31st, 2016 11:48 PM
On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, GOP presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were both on the receiving end of HBO comedian Bill Maher's latest anti-conservative vitriol as he called Cruz a "creep" and a "practiced liar" while comparing Rubio's religious beliefs to those of the terrorist group ISIS.

Thom Hartmann: Requiring Immigrants to Learn English Makes Sense

January 30th, 2016 10:03 PM
Looks like lots of those arguments between liberal radio host Thom Hartmann and conservatives appearing on his show weren't a waste of time after all. Hartmann was among the guests on last night's Real Time with Bill Maher and he said something rarely heard from liberals when the conversation turns to immigration.  

Hartmann Parrots Shabby Meme That Climate Skeptics are 'Mentally Ill'

January 10th, 2016 7:20 PM
On the plus side, libtalker Thom Hartmann gave a shout-out for a provocative post written by MRCTV blog editor Craig Bannister. On the down side, Bannister's subtle sarcasm was apparently too nuanced for Hartmann to comprehend -- and liberals love chortling about how only they understand nuance and conservatives aren't evolved enough to keep up.

Gasp! Thom Hartmann Asks Whether Hollywood Glorifies Violence

September 4th, 2014 6:22 PM
Rare is the liberal who criticizes Hollywood where liberalism has been the party line for decades. Rarer still are Democrats who do, especially at Hollywood fundraisers. Left-wing radio host Thom Hartmann, among the top-rated talkers in the country, recently ventured where few on the left dare tread while talking with attorney and "Ring of Fire" radio show co-host Mike Papantonio about…

Thom Hartmann Pines for President Like John Adams Who'd Throw Republic

August 4th, 2014 11:27 AM
Liberal radio host Thom Hartmann is busy at work on two crucial elements of the left-wing agenda -- criminalizing differences of opinion and perpetuating the myth that our politics have never been more polarized. Hartmann received help in this endeavor from his weekly guest, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Bolshevik of Vermont, who frequently appears Fridays on Hartmann's program for the preciously…

Those Aren't Rockets That Hamas is Shooting at Israelis, They're 'Soft

July 18th, 2014 7:42 PM
The envelope please for most inane apologia in defense of Hamas this week ... Even worse, this particular inanity comes from Thom Hartmann, a top-rated talker on the barren moonscape known as liberal radio. In response to a caller who took him to task for blaming Israel for the latest flare-up, Hartmann downplayed the peril posed by Hamas firing hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilians. (…

Thom Hartmann: Saddam Brought 'Peace and Stability for Decades' to Ira

July 10th, 2014 7:42 PM
But hey, give the man credit -- how often do left-wingers ever admit that Saddam Hussein was a socialist? In the last two decades, the number of times I've heard them acknowledge this comes in somewhere around less than hardly ever. If Saddam had been a right-winger, we'd all have heard that repeated ad infinitum and then some. But because he wasn't -- just the opposite, in fact -- Saddam's…

Thom Hartmann: Elder Bush 'Murdered' Iraqi Soldiers Fleeing Kuwait

July 2nd, 2014 6:27 PM
Fortunately, there might still be time for the show trial that Thom Hartmann craves. Hartmann, long atop the decidedly short list of popular liberal radio hosts, has again lapsed into the language of fringe leftist, this time while talking about the horrific situation in Iraq, al Qaeda's rationale for attacking the US on 9/11, and the Persian Gulf war.
