MSNBC: Guys Carrying Guns to Rallies Are Racists, Especially This Guy Whose Skin Color We Will Now Proceed to Hide from Your View
This is truly amazing, from Newsbusters via Hot Air (also picked up by DRJ briefly below). Watch this video, at least through :40. It’s an MSNBC clip showing a man with an assault rifle outside an Obama rally. The tape is edited so that you can see only the lower half of the body. You cannot see his face.
Then the commentator says:
. . . there are questions about whether this has a racial overtones [sic] I mean here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists, or to their legs.
Now for the punch line. Remember how I noted that the clip was edited so you couldn’t see the guy’s face? Here it is:
Above: white man with gun strapped to him
Above: even clearer view of a clearly white man
This white man is such a racist, he has himself done up in blackface!
P.S. I heard a radio program last night where Rod Dreher and an editor from the American Spectator both allowed Eric Boehlert and the liberal host to tar Republicans with the “they call Obama a Nazi!” brush. The American Spectator editor, to his credit, pointed out that Bush was called a Nazi for years, but nobody piped up to mention that the Obama/Nazi crazies always turn out to be LaRouche supporters.
Allahpundit has done a great job reminding us of a few points we all need to keep in mind as the Eric Boehlerts and Tim Ruttens of the world try to paint Republicans as fanatics who uniquely demonize the president as a Nazi, call for him to be killed, and such:
- There were lots and lots and lots of death threats against Bush at anti-war rallies and such for years. Here’s one example; many, many more at the link:
- Pictures of Obama with a mustache have turned out to be wielded by crazy LaRouche supporters, time and time and time again.
- We have a Congressman who calls Republicans “the enemy” and says that Sen. Grassley’s criticism of ObamaCare was “an act of treason.”
But never mind that. Republicans are the crazies!
Oh, and the racists with guns.
MSNBC told me so.
