Roland Martin: ‘Hypocritical’ Americans Should ‘Shut the Hell Up’ About Putin

‘Who the hell is America fooling to tell somebody else in another country who you can invade and cannot invade?’

Roland Martin: 'Hypocritical' Americans Should 'Shut the Hell Up' About Crimea Invasion (NewsBusters)

Former liberal CNN contributor Roland Martin launched a left-wing tirade on his TV One news program on Wednesday, aimed mainly at conservative opponents of President Barack Obama's foreign policy: "Who the hell is America fooling to tell somebody else in another country who you can invade and cannot invade?...the United States, under President Reagan, invaded Grenada....Yet, here we are telling another sovereign nation what countries you can't invade. It's called being hypocritical. It is called being shameless, and frankly, we look silly."

Despite targeting Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham by name for their criticism of Obama, Martin threw a much wider net in his rant: "So Americans, can you please stop with the hypocritical nature of your criticism?...The fact of the matter is, America has always invaded other countries." The host also included some of the left's usual examples of America's meddling around the world.
