They are Nazis! Of course they do, and YES, they are.
Gee, they're right on top of things, aren't they?
I hate Nazis too, but I'm afraid I have to say they made their point.
I believe their stated goal was to expose gang (i.e. Black, in their opinion) violence in this particular Toledo neighborhood.
The Nazis didn't even march, but they certainly exposed the level of gang related violence, be it Black, Hispanic, White, or other.
I know, I know, there were reports of some outsiders inciting violence, but I think the outsiders were a tiny minority of the numbers of rioters we saw on TV.
Protesting Nazis doesn't include looting, setting buildings and cars on fire, or throwing stones at police and emergency vehicles. Those are criminal element activities, apparently gang related in this case (drunken Red Sox rioters excluded).
I really hate to say it, but as far as a publicity win, the Nazis chalked one up, with a big assist by the MSM.
As much as I hate to defend the Nazis, I'd have to say their strategy was pretty effective. Show up in small numbers, get out before anyone gets hurt, go home and watch black people looting and rioting on the news and then exclaim, "See! We told you these people are violent animals!"
People turned on the news and didn't see any skinheads committing crimes. You can bet that was part of their objective. This Nazis are going to milk this event for all it is worth. To them, it was undoubtedly a successful march.
The numbers have been a little down lately so they had to do an outreach program. They had to recruit some nijjers!
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
I'm relieved to read here that others get the preposterous lies in that headline. I read the story on FOX very early today and it seems that rioting was by everyone BUT the "white supremacists" and not only that, there's more planned (by "protestors" of the protestors).
Farakhan can rant and rave about everything racist and racially motivated yet a straggly group of "white" people in Ohio can't have their few hours without being mobbed and such.
I don't support the politics of the group, they sure don't represent 'white' people, but the rioting wasn't 'white' people.
I'm wondering what the headline would have been like if they'd been honest about it.
The first line still reads "Protesters at a white supremacists' march threw rocks at police, vandalized vehicles and stores and cursed the mayor for allowing the event." It should read "COUNTER-protestors at a white...."
It doesn't look like hundreds to me...
The new headline is only a little better than the first. The AP is still not delivering news. They are trying to shape by telling readers what to think about the rioters. Big surprise!
Well, I guess we can safely say that dumb Nazis are loads smarter than the racial proletariat and the brainy liberals at ABC.
The error was is pluralizing "supremacist." I did take note that the word black only appeared once in the article and that was to describe the race of a witness.
Are these big city Blacks feeling 'protected' now that it is not politically correct to describe their race when the article is not favorable towards their race?
That is using clear MSM logic! LOL
I count...twelve "white supremacits" and they sure don't look like they're rioting to my view.
The skinheads didn't even get to march. Well, so what. As far as AP, et al. (Libs and dems), are concerned, it's business as usual. No correction made, though the race of the rioters and looters is clear from the video.
Coloring the News.
Also lost in the story, besides the truth, is the reason for the skinhead march. They were protesting the lack of police action when roaming black gangs attacked white neighborhoods...evidently an ongoing problem.
From what I heard on the news today, it was local gang members that were upset that outsiders were marching on "their turf." Reminds me of when my child is mad and threatens to break one of her toys. That'll show me huh? Some people are so stupid.
They needed new basketball shoes and tvs. sarc/off
Honestly I have little patience or compassion left for anyone these days. I am fed up.
is that meant to be a jab at people you might so callously call looters? I'll have you know that big screen TVs and Nikes are high in protein.... lol
btw, should we expect Celine Dion coming out defending these criminals again? "Let dem totch dose teengs for ones!"
I didn't recognize them without their sheets!
while I'm sure Drudge will be all over this later on Drudge Radio, I still say FILL YOUR FAVORITE BLOGGERS' EMAIL BOXES WITH THIS STORY. This is the only way to, not take down ABC/AP like LGF did with Rathergate.. but at least bring attention to another huge liberal media example and deal a big blow to them.. it's not just spin this time, but a flat out lie. I don't think we should quit until Fox gets all over this and puts the pressure on until someone has to make a public apology (thought the rest of the media will ignore it and pretend it never happened.)
It's already up in Newsbusters...
LOL... Great example of the MSM's attitude.
I have never seen such blatant bias as in this headline. This isn't some confusing positioning of words but an out-an-out lie. The actual meat of this bony article, while trying to deflect the true blame here, doesn't continue the lie. It is purely for the quick hit, where someone doesn't actually read the article and goes away with an impression of the true aggressors being the dickweed Nazis.
Uh I don't see any change on ABC's site as of 1:18pm EST Sunday.
Leather Nikes maybe, but plasma tvs sorry. lol
Just listening to the police chief yesterday told me all I had to know. It was as if he thought he was dealing solely with a race relations 'problem'.
Fox News has now changed their first paragraph of the article to read:
"A crowd protesting a white supremacists' march Saturday turned violent, throwing baseball-sized rocks at police, vandalizing vehicles and stores, and setting fire to a neighborhood bar, authorities said."
AbcNEWS put the headline back to "White Supremacists Riot in Toledo, Ohio"!
I'm still flabbergasted.
My brother, who lives in nearby Maumee, and I have talked since this morning and he was speechless when I told him about AP's headline.
The AP's culpability in this story ranks up there with Rather's in his.
If a single White Supremacist had thrown a rock, I'm sure the eager photographers would have caught him in the act and plastered it on the front pages. The best they could come up with was the picture that accompanies the story:
Indeed they do.
Here is yet another updated version.
ABC and others continue their attempts at deceit. Here again, they falsely claim that the resulting riot by gang bangers was caused by a planned march of white supremacists. (who never marched)
Yea right. Like gang bangers need an excuse to commit mayhem on public streets.
thanks for the tip.. I hope others continue to pick this up.
"Why can't the mom and dads say something to their kids?"I doubt they care.
well, I thepoliticalteen.net has my (admittedly sloppy) email up about this... pretty high traffic site, that many others link to because he Tivos everything and has all the videos you could ever want to see (i.e. Donahue on the Factor, Black Panther idiots on Hannity & Colmes, etc. etc.) I definitely reccomend checking out his site regularly, if you don't have time to watch all the cable news primetime... anyway, here's his post (which again is just my sloppy email that I sent to Michelle Malkin and Little Green Footballs, but they haven't posted on it yet.)
TBOnline,should of known.This is a moderate/conservative area,but the Tampa Trib and StPete Times are blatantly left.I haven't subscribed to either rag in yrs.Ironicaly,the StPeteTimes is considered a very good paper.
I guess these lefties don't get Fox News on their cable. The rest of the country watched young black thugs throwing rocks through the windshield of an ambulance, attack police, and burn some offensive white-owned businesses. I can't wait to read Brent Bozell's comments on this lying news coverage.
to avoid a hot link to this guy (cuz I don't know who he is), I'll provide the Yahoo! video search... Hilarious if anyone hasn't seen it:
excellent point... he actually gets seen on FNC. Perhaps he'll be on O'Reilly or H&C to mention this bologna tomorrow.
