'This is BULLSH*T'! MSNBC SLAMMED for booting contributor Sam Seder over old Roman Polanski joke

Joy Reid got busted for anti-LGBT blog posts she wrote in earnest, but MSNBC’s more than happy to keep her around. So why, then, did they give this guy the boot?

MSNBC has announced they won’t be renewing contributor Sam Seder’s contract because of this 2009 tweet:

“Don’t care re Polanski, but I hope if my daughter is ever raped it is by an older truly talented man w/a great sense of mise en scene,” wrote Seder in the now deleted tweet from 2009.

More from The Wrap:

Multiple efforts to reach Seder were unsuccessful, but in a segment of his podcast, “The Majority Report with Sam Seder,” last week, he addressed the matter and accused Cernovich of a smear campaign to take him off the air.

“This smear involves the willful misinterpretation of a tweet that I posted in 2009,” said Seder, who said Cernovich and his allies were deliberately misrepresenting him to silence his criticism of Roy Moore and President Trump. “I will never be ashamed of criticizing those who would excuse the predation of women or girls. And I certainly won’t be quiet about Roy Moore or a conservative movement that which would defend his actions so they could get his vote in the Senate.”

Seder said the tweet was satirical and was intended to show his disgust with liberals at the time who were attempting to apologize for Polanksi’s past behavior.

Seder’s old tweet was dug up by activist Mike Cernovich, who, it should be mentioned, is something of an actual rape apologist.

Not to mention a full-blown misogynistic creep.

Seder is no conservative by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s not just liberals calling MSNBC out for this decision:

This could end up completely blowing up in MSNBC’s face.
