Appearing as a guest on Friday’s Countdown show on MSNBC, during a discussion of conservative talker Glenn Beck’s "Restoring Honor" rally, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson dismissed Dr. Alveda King – niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and former Georgia state representative – as a "figurehead or puppet" of Beck because of her scheduled participation in the rally.

Seems to me, they hate when the people can think for themselves!

The closer to November the more dangerous he will become as a possible jumper on election night. It might be a good idea to put him on suicide watch. He should not be allowed over the first floor at MSNBC.

Eugene Robinson is a pompous jerk and victocrat.

He; and the other bloody shirt waivers, believe you can only be “black” by being a proponent of social justice.

Marxist cred first, blackness second.

If MLK himself had appeared Saturday the WaPo would’ve found a way to dismiss him, as well. For more proof of liberal delusions, there’s a link on that page to this jewel: “Ted Kennedy an Innocent Chappaquiddick Victim” >>>

But then you find this particular puke, Robinson, turning on a dime and accusing other black people of not being black enough, unless, of course, you're dealing with Justice Thomas, and then he's too black ~

Robinson is a racist pig.

he likes the idea of having people live as a mooching parasites or a looting plunderers and anyone who disagrees must be a puppet.

Glenn Beck said she would be targeted, She herself knew she would be targeted. This is just the first shot.

Remember media darling and wacked out communist Cindy Sheehan?

They didn’t care that her son was a hero proud of his service, and she was an embarrasment to the rest of her estranged family. But MLK’s niece of course doesn’t count.

I always knew Robinson is a racist, but I never knew he is a misogynist, too.

So did Eugene call for releasing dogs on her, or just turning the fire hose on her?

Evidently Eugene doesn’t know Dr. King very well. She is a very nice woman with a fine intellect and she is nobody’s token anything. Her finest feature is her willingness to take on the left on the issue of abortion and the black family. Eugene, of course, is a Great Society guy who revels in the destruction of same by out of wedlock births and an abortion rate that would make Satan blush.

Like Glenn says, just sit back and watch ... they are going to burn in their own fire. No need to call them names ... the people “see” now. It used to be a statement like this would have some strange credibility ... no longer. Just sit back and watch, the fire of truth is consuming them. I saw him say that this morning ... I pushed the remote button. Zap, the fire got him ... and along with him all the rest of them on that show and that channel. This is why the media is dying ... sit back and enjoy.

Um, Alveda is not anyone’s puppet. She belongs to Christ. And she knows it, so the idiots making these assertions are merely foolish in her eyes ... I can guarantee you of that. Frankly, these idiot assertions warm my heart because she is a fellow Christian, a sister in Christ to this aging Whitebread writer. My but our God is Great, making for Himself a family of astonishing diversity!

Lock him in the basement just to be sure...

"She makes terrific pancakes, though."
"JUST KIDDING"

So you're really saying that she doesn't make terrific pancakes?

He is just jealous...

He wasn't on the set of Glenn Beck and Ted Nugent didn't give him a hug like he did Alveda...

Either that or he is a vegetarian and just grumpy... :-)....
