MSNBC’s Touré: Obama Being Interrupted 'Cannot Be Disconnected From the Fact That He’s Black'
NewsBusters ^ | June 15, 2012 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 06/16/2012 6:00:02 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

NewsBusters reported moments ago that MSNBC contributor Julian Epstein strongly suggested President Obama being interrupted during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden Friday was because he was African-American.

About an hour later, MSNBC's Touré took it a step further saying definitively, "This disrespect of this human being cannot be disconnected from the fact that he’s black” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

(VIDEO AT LINK)

After Touré said this on the Dylan Ratigan Show, fellow MSNBC contributor Krystal Ball agreed saying, “100 percent.”

Host Ratigan asked Touré to elaborate.

“There is a basic, lesser humanity generally ascribed to black people, even one this alpha, this much in power, this much in control,” answered Touré.

“You’re saying the willingness for white power to disrespect black power is higher than white power to disrespect white power?” asked Ratigan.

“Absolutely,” Touré said, “or just for white people to see a black person in power and say, ‘I don’t have to respect you.’ And even at the point of decorum when he says, ‘I’m speaking, I have acknowledged you rude person. But we are doing this thing together, and I’m still talking.’ And he continues to interrupt. That’s when it gets really disrespectful.”

For those unfamiliar with Touré, he's also a 9/11 Truther.

That said, in the course of about an hour, three MSNBC contributors blamed this incident on the color of the President's skin.

Tough to believe in 2012, isn't it?


TOPICS: Conspiracy; Government; Politics; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS: amnesty; obama; racecard; racism
Why is it tough to believe? That's one of their main campaign strategies and a way of life for the Left. If Mr. Obama slaughtered and ate a girl scout in the Rose Garden on national TV, these fools would defend him and scream that his detractors were bigots.

It was never in doubt that one of the primary tactics the left will use to try and get Obama reelected would be to guilt millions of people into voting for him because of his skin color.

Unfortunately, many idiots will actually vote for him for just such a reason, but I really doubt it will help him win as the race card has been way overplayed, and his shortcomings will not be simply neglected by those who have had enough of both this racist narrative and his blatant ineptitude that comes from his ideology, IMO.

They are trying really hard to kill the messenger so the media and public do not address the question.

The reporter was concerned about making it harder for current unemployed citizens to compete for jobs, with illegals

Yep.. that’s it . . it’s because he’s sorta black. Uh huh. That’s it! Because he’s sorta black. - Was George Bush sorta black, too? Because he was treated very rudely.

The Great, Sorta Black, Barack Hussein Obama.

"MSNBC has a wicked and sick sense of humor as it fantasizes about Mitt Romney’s campaign bus exploding into flames'

I can't help but believe the disrespect of this human being cannot be disconnected from the fact that he’s white.

Gee what will they do next? send 100 demonstrators on his next bus stop tour? Oh yeah, already done that. My bad.

Maybe its time we all just start ignoring them. After all do they really exist in the human universe.

Want to cripple someone for life?
Then never let them grow up.

The Liberals have used that simple plan on their subjects for generations and it’s still working.

How about the fact that his disrespect for the White House and the office of the President is leading others to disrespect him as well?

With all the rudeness Republican Presidents have been subjected to over the years, this is an out and out canard. If the Narcissist-in-Chief had ever actually practiced law, he would have been regularly interrupted by nasty, arrogant and incompetent judges. Perhaps he would have learned to handle himself with grace and aplomb when interrupted. As it is, he behaves like a whiny, petulant child. Send in the adults, please!



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

They think they can hide behind cries of “racism!” to expand the State.

We’ll see how that’s working in November.

I suppose it all depends on what one means by ‘black’.

One might say he is part negro, but that depends on who his father was, and no one is sure who that was.

The only thing ‘black’ about Obama is that pretending to be ‘black’ got him the job. Everything after has been about what was under the skin.

These people that can’t resist pulling out the race card need to listen to themselves and their fellow members of the Obama choir. They are becoming a parody of themselves, fully worthy of the classic SNL treatment like Jane Curtin and Dan Aykroyd used to do.

This is why I was worried about Obama in 2006 and 2007. I knew this would be the constant refrain, as it has been for 4 years. Hopefully, Americans are tired of it.

Sam Donaldson interrupted every president he ever covered. Rudeness or aggressive reporting is not racism. Getting really tired of the race card being continually played on behalf of President Post-partisan and Post-racial.

As far as the Left is concerned NOTHING he does can be disconnected from the fact he is black. Hell, nothing ANYONE does can be disconnected from the fact that he is black.

Which is odd seeing as how his mother was white as the driven snow.

And the fact that Julian Epstein made this comment was because he is an IDIOT.......
Since President Bush was interipted all the time was he black?
How about Obama was interupted becuase what he was saying was a lie or just plain stupid? Maybe both.......

Playing the race card is a sign of desperation, and capitulation on the issue at hand. It used to be effective, but not any more.

Are the white people in the picture aware of the fact that in Hussein Obama's Muslim heritage, showing the soles of your feet to someone is the ultimate insult? ("You are beneath me.")

I'm not sure I have seen a picture of Obama in the White House where he DOESN'T have his feet up, showing his contempt for those in the room with him, and cheering up the Muslim multitudes worldwide who can also see these pictures and know exactly what he is doing, and why.
