I checked two other MSNBC shows last night - Maddow and Matthews - and both kept showing only that one shot of the man with the rifle. It seems to be the only shot not showing the man’s skin color.

Reporting the truth does not fit in with their liberal/socialist agenda.

Did they also fail to mention that the guy was FOR Obamacare?

Really?

I am upset that Obama is in the Whitehouse. It is not because he is black. It is because he is trying his left hearted damnedest to destroy our country as we know it. He is upset that good people do good without government compulsion. He is upset that we like to take care of our own.

Guess what? Religious charities do a great job of catching those that fall through the cracks. Private citizens do a great job in areas that the government simply cannot take care of.

Once again, we are being deceived and misinformed by the fawning, liberal “main stream” media.

Also, someone please tell the know nothing NBC reporter that it was John Hinckley not “Mark Hinckley” that shot Ronald Regan.

Sloppy reporting at best...

Maybe Dan Rather will do that as well - in whatever radio station he is now.

This is not journalism. How in the hell can this commentator go on casting this as if only race could be the motivator for bringing guns when the individual holding the assault rifle is black? Black organizations should be outraged by this. This is very ugly and very racist what they are doing trying manipulate people into deeper racial prejudices. This is sickening.

WTF, was with that retarded interview? No one I know thinks of Barry O. as being a “Black” President.

No one I know is so angry they wish him harm

No one I know wants him harmed

Everyone I know believes his safety is paramount for a variety of reasons

No one I know cares about his “color”. (is it important?)

Everyone I know thinks that anyone who would bring physically harm to Barry O. is a retarded asshole and “we” do not approve, at all.

What is with the constant reminder that Barry O. is the first “whatever” or “Black”? Am I suppose to care? Why?

I have noticed over the years that the people who think the most about race are the same people shaving their face in the morning who belong to some “race”. Why does it always have to be a race anyway? Can’t we walk side by side as friends?

Yeah that’s right, side by side as friends, with you not thinking about your race and me not being reminded, INCESSANTLY, about your race.

I don’t care what your race is. It is not important, except for your culture. I love to learn about people, their culture and language but, I do not enjoy being reminded regularly how you are a victim of your own race.

Whatever.

Get over yourself.

Does racism exist? Sure. Do I care. Sure.

What bothers me is the constant throwing around a term that “HAD” value and now is just a commodity. Why? Cuz it is used for everything and most of which is nothing.

There is not WET(White Entertainment TV) Anyone can be on so long as they have a compelling message. (Cosby, Jeffersons, Cheers, etc)

There is no White Miss America Pageant. Anyone can be Miss America. We don’t care what your color is. But, let’s try entering a White or Chinese woman into the Miss Black America Pagaent. What would that response be?

Segregation?

It would be to easy to list the many ethnic based and exclusionary organizations, pagaents, etc.

Can anyone list some stupid Aryan organization that is well known and the terms explicit in discrimination against the Martr class?

But omitting the truth does.

There are various links and pictures on the following threads that show the guy hanging with SEIU people. The woman behind him in purple is wearing an SEIU shirt.

At the end of one of the linked videos, it is clear that he’s with the Pro-Obama group and shouting “Health care Now”.

Every one of those threads have the same questions, and most of them boil down to “well there was an SEIU person standing near him so he must have been with them”.

There are also various candid links, videos and pictures of the same guy civilly debating the Health Care Now people. Just because photos show an SEIU person close by doesn’t mean he’s with them.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63GiXzpfGhA - oddly nobody from SEIU in the pre-protest set up.

http://www.arizonashooting.com/v3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=86525&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=20 - if photobucket isn’t bandwidth cap lots of pictures of him on both the against and the for side of the street.

He’s also a Ron Paul supporter, so not sure that makes sense to be an Obama health care now person.

I guess he is a 9/11 truther though so meh can’t win em all.

Dunno which is worse, them calling us racist for not supporting ObamaCare, or people that assume that since someone is Black he has to be an SEIU plant.

I have not heard either of those before. Do you have documentation of either of those positions?

Maybe he's a prankster. Maybe he doesn't really care. Maybe he's just playing a big joke on everyone so he and his buddies can sit back and laugh.

I don't believe anyone, certainly not I, believed he had to be an SEIU plant because he was black. I originally figured he was against ObamaCare because he had the gun. I recently was at an anti-ObamaCare rally and the most vocal opponent of ObamaCare was a black woman.

If you are trying to snidely insinuate that I think he's an SEIU plant simply because of the color of his skin, you can ram your words firmly up your ass.
