MSNBC Refuses to Cover That Which Does Not Fit Teh Narrative

Filed under: General — JD @ 9:24 pm

[guest post by JD]

I find it shocking that MSNBC does not want to cover minorities speaking at the Republican National Convention. It absolutely does not fit with their race-baiting narrative.

  2. Wow. That seems kinda blatant, JD. Almost as bad as when they cropped that picture of the dude with the AR.

    That old familiar democrat racism of demanding minorities do what you demand they do, or they aren’t relevant.

  3. I am sure it was just a coincidence, Dustin.

  5. I had to laugh at Rachel M. She managed to never turn her head to the right, like she could not believe she was sitting next to Al F’ing Sharpton on a presidential pundit panel!

    Probably another of those psycho lefty protesters.

    Zilla had a good post about one of those guys. Ole’ Brandon Darby (I bet you know who that is) put a couple of those losers in prison a while back.

    GOP conventions don’t just attract brilliant conservatives, you know. They also attract nuts who foam at the mouth at the idea of happy Republicans.

    Sigh. That’s exactly what that was.

    Like clockwork, if the post reveals something very ugly about the left, along comes the defense force with a little diversionary trolling. And like clockwork, someone like me will respond directly instead of mocking.

  9. “An unscripted moment happened late this afternoon that caused the assembled mainstream media to turn away in the hope that it would disappear. As I was standing in line for a sandwich next to an Italian and a Puerto Rican correspondent, a controversy was unfolding on the floor. The RonPaulites, whose furious devotion to a single idea have made them the Ellen Jamesians of the right, were protesting a decision by RNC officials not to seat members of the Maine delegation, which was split between Paul and Romney supporters following rule changes made just prior to the convention. There were energetic shouts of “Aye!” and “Nay!” as a Puerto Rican party functionary—Zoraida Fonalledas, the chairwoman of the Committee on Permanent Organization—took her turn at the main-stage lectern. As she began speaking in her accented English, some in the crowd started shouting “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”

    The chanting carried on for nearly a minute while most of the other delegates and the media stood by in stunned silence. The Puerto Rican correspondent turned to me and asked, “Is this happening?” I said I honestly didn’t know what was happening—it was astonishing to see all the brittle work of narrative construction that is a modern political convention suddenly crack before our eyes. None of us could quite believe what we were seeing: A sea of twentysomething bowties and cowboy hats morphing into frat bros apparently shrieking over (or at) a Latina. RNC chairman Reince Priebus quickly stepped up and asked for order and respect for the speaker, suggesting that, yeah, what we had just seen might well have been an ugly outburst of nativism.”

  10. When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.

    MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black.

    Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce’ Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech.

    And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too.

    There’s some actual racism, sleepy. From MSNBC, the democrat news network.

  11. Or, shockingly (as the story suggests) it could have had to do with nor luapians chanting and having nada to do with Zoraida.

  12. RACIST BUNNIES!!!!!!!!!

  13. Ah Harper’s remember when Lapham edited it, and he pretended to cover the 2004 convention, before it happened, which earned the term Laphamization.

  14. It does seem that MSNBC’s motive was to pretend the GOP is ‘the white people’s party’. Some democrats shamefully attempt to divide America into demographics and play us off eachother.

    Sleepy seems to want to promote the same lie. And inclusive and diverse GOP convention is distorted into hysterical shrieks of ‘racist’ and willful refusal to acknowledge any inconvenient facts that get in the way.

    Is this really the left’s plan for 2012, sleepy? I think it’s pathetic.

    Dustin (73fead)

  15. Some people read 1984, as a cautionary tale, these
    folks as a how to guide.

    narciso (ee31f1)

  16. it could have had to do with nor luapians chanting

    I don’t blame them for being ticked off about the delegate issue. And I agree that there’s no reason to read that as about Zoraida’s heritage. But like Chris Matthews hearing ‘black people’ when Newt describes the increase of use of food stamps (most recipients being white), sleepy hears that dog whistle you cannot.

    Dustin (73fead)

  17. sleeeepy, many Ron Paul supporters do not really even consider themselves “Republicans,” and many Republicans do not even consider Ron Paul supporters to be “Republicans.”
    Ron Paul is not even supporting Romney.

    So, your thesis is kind of like Obama’s Presidency—a failure.
    Ironically, if any delegation began chanting, “USA, USA,” at the DNC next week, they’d probably get booed…for a different reason.

  18. It’s a network that employs Sharpton, Schultz and O’Donnell, three flavors of the same crazy.

    It absolutely does not fit with their race-baiting narrative.

    That’s why the following — sort of the flip side to what you’re referring to, and generally hushed up in the history books or rarely, if ever, talked about in casual conversation (certainly among liberals) — really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. These two are considered as among the pantheon of the Democrat Party, with the latter playing a prominent role at the Democrat convention next week.

    seattletimes.nwsource.com, November 1991

    Harry Truman [Democrat, US President 1945-1953], who made civil rights a federal priority for the first time since Reconstruction, expressed strong racist sentiments before, during and after his presidency, a historian says. Although Truman toned down his racist expressions after entering the White House in 1945, he continued to use racial slurs in private conversation for the rest of his life, said William Leuchtenburg, president of the American Historical Association.

    In 1911, the year he turned 27, Truman wrote to his future wife, Bess: “I think one man is just as good as another so long as he’s honest and decent and not a n—– or a Chinaman. Uncle Will says that the Lord made a white man from dust, a n—– from mud, then He threw up what was left and it came down a Chinaman.”

    “(Uncle Will) does hate Chinese and Japs,” Truman continued. “So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, yellow men in Asia and white men in Europe and America.”

    More than 25 years later, Truman, then a U.S. senator from Missouri, wrote a letter to his daughter describing waiters at The White House as “an army of coons.” In a letter to his wife in 1939 he referred to “n—– picnic day.”
    _____________________

    frontpagemag.com: Years after Truman left office, [TV producer David] Susskind was working with the former president on a television documentary. Wrote [James] Humes [writer of speeches for five presidents]:

    Susskind said that each morning he would arrive at Truman’s house at Independence [Missouri]. He would wait on the porch on a cold February day while Mrs. Truman went to inform her husband of his arrival. After about the fourth morning, he asked the president in his walk why he was never asked inside.

    “You’re a Jew, David, and no Jew has ever been in the house.”

    aman.members.sonic.net

    Larry Patterson [Clinton's bodyguard in Arkansas] confirmed that he frequently heard Bill Clinton use “n—–” to refer to both Jesse Jackson and local Little Rock black leader Robert “Say” McIntosh. Longtime Clinton paramour Dolly Kyle Browning corroborated Patterson on Clinton’s use of “n—–.” “Not only did he use the ‘N’ word, he called him a ‘GDN’ [goddamn n-----], if you catch my drift,” Browning told Fox News in 1999. [NewsMax, 17 July 2000]

    Brown also told NewsMax that the president would regularly make derogatory comments about African-Americans in private. “He has used the ‘N’ word before. Bill would make snide remarks about blacks behind their backs.” [Carl Limbacher and NewsMax Staff, 17 July 2000]

    Patterson said Hillary was no stranger to the “N” word either. He heard her say “n—–” “probably six, eight, ten times. She would be upset with someone in the black community and she would use the ‘N’ word, like, you heard they’ve got the president’s brother on tape using the ‘N’ word.” [NewsMax, 17 July 2000]

  22. still a f***ing liar for claiming that Paul Ryan sponsored a bill that would have banned in-vitro fertilization is becoming even more desperate. And pathetic.

  24. “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”

    And sure, all the other Republicans just wish they could do that. Uh huh. Assuming even that it’s true and correctly reported by …. MSNBC.

  25. So, MSNBC has a panel with 6 people. 5 are at least liberal and the sixth is John McCain’s campaign manager.

    When Fox has far more diversity, you’d think that MSNBC would at least have the courtesy to have an actual Republican covering the Republican convention.

    But no. Their panel would be like covering the Democrats with Hannity, Pat Buchanan, Phyllis Schaffley, Bill O’Reilly, Ron Paul and Pat Caddell.

    You would? I certainly wouldn’t think that, wouldn’t think that at all. Nor can I think of a sentence in which both “MSNBC” and “courtesy” can reasonably be used together, without at least one of those terms being set off in quotation marks.

  32. I did, however, notice with some disapproval that in their set for The Five in Tampa, all of the ladies are seated behind the desk, and we don’t get to look at Andrea Tantaros’ legs. Well, heck, if that’s the case, might as well flip over to USA and watch NCIS reruns.

  33. And am I the only one who thinks that they ought to put Dana Perino out front where we can check out her legs, at least once in a while? :)
