OMG! Another ‘Progressive’ Tax Dodger at MSNBC? Does ANYONE There Pay Taxes?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It looks like the hosts at Obama’s Lean Forward Network, MSNBC, share a key and shady characteristic. They suffer from a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ attitude, railing against the rich and demanding that people ‘pay their fair share’ in taxes, while to date, four of them are tax evaders.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]One of the biggest loudmouths at MSNBC, Politics Nation host and professional racial grievance industry profiteer Al Sharpton, owes nearly $5 million in back taxes, yet that has not stopped him from being one of Obama’s advisers. Recently, The PolitiStick reported that Melissa Harris-Perry, the tampon-earring wearing host on the little watched network, owes $70,000 to the IRS.

Now, it has been uncovered by the National Review that up and coming race baiter Touré Neblett, co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, has been hit with two separate state tax warrants from New York. The first was for $46,862.68. The second added $12,849.87 to his bill of unpaid state taxes.

But, these hosts are not alone. There is a fourth tax evader on the MSNBC payroll. Joy Reid, former host of The Reid Report who is still a contributor to the network, owes $5,000.

Despite the millions owed collectively by Sharpton, Harris-Perry, Touré, and Reid, that has not stopped each of them from running off at the mouth, in sheer and utter hypocrisy, chastising those they deem to be ‘rich’ and demanding that they ‘pay their fair share.’ This despite the fact that the top 1% pays almost half of all taxes.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]The Washington Free Beacon has put together another brilliant video showcasing the grandstanding by these hosts as they lectured their audience over and over again about tax fairness.

While each has their shining moment of hypocrisy, a few segments and one tweet are worthy of highlighting.

In one of MSNBC’s silly “Lean Forward” ads, Sharpton blasted Republicans for giving tax cuts and loopholes to the rich and “act like it’s acceptable,” comparing their policies to Jim Crow laws. Sharpton also ripped Sen. Joni Ernst’s (R., Iowa) response after the 2015 State of the Union address for “defending the top 1 percent not having to pay taxes.”

Harris-Perry has gone off numerous times about inequality and fairness, but it looks like the words that she uttered did not apply to herself.

“We all want to believe that the tax math adds up to an equitable system, where everyone pays their due,” she said, criticizing corporations that avoid taxes. “But that’s part of the problem. Not everyone does seem to be paying their dues.”


In the same monologue, she expressed frustration with people who avoid their civil responsibility.


“When I am poring over my paperwork, it doesn’t make it any easier to know that my wealthy neighbor isn’t taking responsibility,” she said. “If they don’t pay, why should I, right?”

Then, there was this tweet by Touré.

The disingenuous lies spouted by the MSNBC ‘talent’ seems to never end.
