Michael Eric Dyson Calls Impeachment Talk ‘Treasonous’...Supported It in the Bush Years
The National Review's The Corner ^ | July 10, 2014 | Andrew Johnson

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

MSNBC fill-in host and Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson is no fan of calling for a president’s ouster . . . unless it’s George W. Bush. Although he personally signed his name onto a group looking to “create a political situation where Bush himself is driven from office,” Dyson labeled Sarah Palin’s comments about impeaching President Obama as “treasonous accusations.”

“The president is acutely aware of the dire situation facing the children and their families crossing into the United States, as evidenced by his tireless effort to help them,” he said on Wednesday’s show in defense of President Obama. “The president’s push towards positive and crucial change was met with treasonous accusations.”

During the Bush years, however, Dyson was one of many signees to The World Can’t Wait! organization, which listed a series of grievances against Bush, including “moving each day closer to a theocracy” of a “narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism” and likening the former president to Hitler.

“People look at all this and think of Hitler — and they are right to do so,” the group says in the “About” section on its website. “The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.”

In addition to Dyson, the organization’s supporters include other celebrity activists, such as Cornel West and Susan Sarandon. It also includes several lawmakers, among them Democratic representatives John Conyers of Michigan, Bobby Rush of Illinois, and Maxine Waters of California, as well as other former legislators, such as Senator Mark Gravel of Alaska and Representative Cynthia McKinney of Georgia.

never heard of this commentator but obviously either a shill for the IslamoNazi moles in WashDC or else completely divorced from reality (a nut case that should be locked up for effetive treatment or at least protective care)

There is nothing "treasonous" about a Constitutional process.

I suppose it is also "treasonous" to vote for a non-Democrat?

These people always get away with their contradictions. Remember Chris Mathews going nuts over Rush calling the Obama administration a “regime”? Though he had said the same thing about Bush. Nobody called him on it to his face.

Isn’t Georgetown the place which let O cover up its crucifixes to protect O from any identification with Christianity?

He obviously has no idea what Treason is. Furthermore, Impeachment is provided for in the Constitution - oh wait - liberals HATE the Constitution unless they can twist it to their purposes.

Remember this. For America and white folks to survive there will be a war between black and white. You can bet on it. As a matter of fact it has already started. I am serious!

Exactly correct. This shows that the looney tune left equates Obama with the Constitution. Apparently they hated GWB because he was not, their king. Not because he over stepped his authority. Supporting a king over a constitution is treasonous. And every Obama loving progressive and every wetback loving GOP elite is guilty of it.

Obama is not black. He came out of a white woman's womb. Do not blame blacks for the abomination that has been forced upon them.

Indeed. Other then for the very slightest
verneer of pretense for necessary political cover, he’s demonstrated an intense hatred of just about anything Christian, catholic, or Jewish. Line an allergic reaction really

He’d have to beat out Hussein, his “wife” Michelle, and Eric Holder for that honor.

I wonder what Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson thought of the book (play?) that called for President Bush’s assassination? I’m sure that was a Freedom of Speech issue...

Blacks were born and brought an abomination of themselves. They have destroyed their own race and now destroying America. Go anywhere they are a majority and compare it where they are in the minority. Black leaders have destroyed their communities and now destroying America. I admit Obama is half white but blacks don’t and voted for him because of his blackness.

Al Sharpton wanna-be. How low do you have to go to be a Rev, Al wanna-be? These morons on MSNBC feel free to say any stupid thing that they can dream up because they know nobody will call them on it. Imagine Krauthammer tearing this moron a new one.

Grew up in and around Detroit. From about 8-9 years old on. It was corruption, graft and the US auto companies that destroyed Detroit.

Blacks destroyed Detroit along with the Unions and Democrat Party. No company in America could get by with what GM has!

As much as I despise this puke — Dyson — I don’t see any evidence in the article that he actually called for Bush’s impeachment.

US auto companies, really? How do you explain how screwed up pretty much every other place in the USA is where there is a large concentration of black people and no auto industry? Even when the surrounding area is mostly OK like in Houston, Dallas, Memphis, East ST Louis, NOLA, Omaha, KC, Minneapolis, etc.? I would blame the welfare state and the destruction of the traditional family that comes with it more that any other factor, but that is just me.

Was talking about Detroit. A place I know of intimately. Can give you specific examples of how those companies were run by some of the worse people on the planet, but that would take too long. At any rate, what does welfare have to do with skin color ?

The whites living in Detroit were just as bad as the blacks. It was a societal problem. These people were just scumbags. Plain and simple. Screw you and give me mine. That was their attitude. Same attitude exists right now in Miami. In 20 years it will look like Detroit with palm trees.

Black people are roughly 13% of the US population but 39.8% of welfare recipients are black. You tell me what skin color has to do with it.

Of course. That was the graft and corruption. Unions, welfare and the auto companies also played a roll. Do not see how skin color has anything to do with that. The last few white Democrat mayors in Detroit were also corrupt. Chicago is following Detroit. The same people partly responsible for running Detroit and Chicago into the ground, are now running the US. Los Angeles is also going down. Some real sick people live in Los Angeles.

I think that when you have a group that makes up 13% of the population of a society committing 49% of the murders and 55% of the robberies in that society (http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/table-43), it indicates problems within that group. I also think that makes it pretty simple to understand why any area with a majority population of members of that group will likely not be prosperous and will probably have relatively high crime and corruption rates. I believe that the destruction of the traditional two parent family among blacks by the welfare state explains the current state of affairs much better than blaming any corporation does. I do not think it is Chevy’s fault that Detroit and many other cities in the US are going down the tubes.
