Thanks for the heads up to Jimmie at The Sundries Shack for this one.
MSNBC’s chief race relations and propaganda expert Contessa Brewer was on the Morning Meeting and said the following cencerning folks showing up at presidential events strapped:
“A man at a pro-health care reform rally…wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip….there are questions about whether this has racial overtones….white people showing up with guns.”
Just yesterday I posted this post on the growing trend of protestors showing up at Obama events openly carrying a piece. I even posted two, yes, two different videos of the latest patriot to bring a gun, what appears to be an AR-15, to an event. For those who don’t want to click the linky-link, here’s a screen grab of the fella:
Not being content with portraying all health care reform protesters as racist, Toure went on to predict an attempt on Obama’s life: “I’m not going to be surprised if we see somebody get a chance and take a chance and really try to hurt him or really….we’re going to see somebody, you know, some sort of Squeaky From, some sort of Mark [John] Hinckley figure, because there’s so much anger in the country about him, about what’s going on with government.” Ratigan replied: “Angry at government and racism, you put those two together.”
What a bunch of pukes. Really, this is inexcusable.
Are their liberal blinders so thick they can’t see there is too much melanin in this guy’s skin for him to be considered white, meaning do they think there are no black folks on the right who think this way?
Jimmie Bise over at The Sundries Shack asks:
What I want to know is what in the name of all that’s holy was MS-NBC trying to do? Their lying heads claimed not to want more racial tension, but they deliberately made up a story about growing racist anger to…what? Bring tensions down? How, exactly does that work?
It doesn’t, of course. What it does do is slander the anti-Obamacare movement, who by the way are mostly decent and ordinary Americans (gun-toters included), and drive yet another wedge between white and black folks. I can’t imagine why any sane person would want to do either one, but there it is.
MSNBC knows their viewers. Their viewers already consider everyone right of Dennis Kucinish to be racist, so they won’t question the fact that anyone bringing a gun is a white racist looking to kill the president because he’s black. They won’t consider that they are being duped.
It’s a disgusting display from MSNBC, whose parent company is GE. If you are a GE stockholder, and if you have a 401k plan, you probably are, you should make sure they know you are not pleased. If only GE had a ready made website where you could do that.
