Nets Ignore Cynthia McKinney Entourage’s Election Night Meltdown
NewsBusters ^ | Aug. 10, 2006 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 08/10/2006 6:45:05 AM PDT by AT7Saluki

If a long-time member of Congress lost a primary battle for re-election, and his/her campaign entourage shouted racial epithets at reporters and about her opponent after defeat, do you think this would have been on the evening news? Well, if said member of Congress was a Democrat, the answer apparently is “no,” for not one of the broadcast networks felt it was newsworthy to report Tuesday evening's events involving Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Georgia).

For those that haven’t heard, McKinney’s campaign entourage now includes members of the New Black Panthers. After her primary defeat Tuesday to Hank Johnson for Georgia’s 4th Congressional district, some of these folks went on a bit of a rampage referring to white reporters as “crackers,” calling her opponent an “Uncle Tom,” blaming her loss on Israel, and shouting anti-Semitic epithets at a Jewish reporter

The more she spews, the more the left is exposed. Keep spewing, McKrazy and friends...

It goes without saying that if this psychotic moonbat were a Republican, the MSM would paste this story wall-to-wall.

If word of this got out people might actually have a poor opinion of her.

I hope that if this piece of subhuman garbage ever gets nominated or considered for hiring to a position of importance or responsibility, that transcripts, video and photos of that night are entered into evidence.

Yes, I truly believe this animal should never be gainfully employed in the public sector again, for any reason. She isn't fit to hot mop the NAACP men's room.

I think the only network showing McKinnys entourages was
Fox News at the 6:00 pm news hour.

I caught this last night on H&C. Real racist comments that Colmes and Beckel had to denounce. It's true, this is getting zero airplay. For as much coverage as Mel Gibson's rant got, you would think there would be SOME coverage.

Don't forget the threats of physical violence and chasing local news reporters and cameramen into their satellite truck, to the point that police were called.

Funny how the memory hole swallows all reports of violence by the "peace party."

It's tempting to think along those lines, but it is extremely frustrating when liberals continuously get a free pass from the media when engaging in this kind of despicable behavior, yet if a Republican were to do something similar, it would be a leading story on all the major news media and there would be immediate howls for an investigation by Congress.

The double standard is galling.

There is something telling here. The libs attacked Mel Gibson for making comments against Jews. Yet, anti-Jewish comments made against Joe Lieberman and his wife are virtually ignored. Lanny Davis mentions it and he gets hate mail - from the left! Then, McKinney's people make anti-Jewish comments - reminiscent of her father's remarks - and nary a peep. Two things come to mind. One - I tend to agree with Ann Coulter that the Scoop Jackson Democrat is a myth and always have been. Concerning JFK, Truman, and FDR, I remember reading of nasty things - for their time - they said about Republicans. Two - the only types of blacks who make anti-Jewish comments like that are the Nation of Islam type. People need to start making the connection.

Not only is this the face of the Democrat Party, it is the face of the majority of black politicians and their followers. There is no one any more racist than the Black Caucus, the NAACP, Black Panthers, and the Nation of Islam. The white racists get the MSM front pages and the news but the membership of the racist white organizations doesn't even come close to the membership of any one of the black racist organizations.

Cynthia's entourage was anti-Semitic - and with the "cracker" comment, they were also racist. But the MSM doesn't seem to care. The reason?

Maybe we should just sit back and watch the show McLooney will put on in the short time she has left. I'm sure it will get better.

Because of the ultimate form of racism, the bigotry of soft expectations. In the elite's mind, that's just the way blacks act, they aren't to be held to a higher standard.

What is more racist than that?

I live in the Atlanta area, and have seen these folks on the local news.

What I have been suprised about is the relative saneness of McIdiot's campaign manager, John Evans, I believe is his name.

Now, admittedly, I have only seen him twice - once on election night, and once last night, for just a brief minute or so each time. But, both times I saw him, he came across to me as fairly rational - he was realistic about the primary loss Tuesday nite, for example.

Makes me wonder if that performance was for TV, or else how did he get involved with McIdiot & company?

I caught this tape on Fox yesterday, and it amazes me that the Media is just fascinated with trashing Mel Gibson for his drunken anti-semetic tirade, but totally ignores the comments of the McNinny entourage, even though they appear to be sober.

And it is regularly not reported that the New Black Panthers are providing her security.

She may be out of the Congress, but I'm sure she'll still be around, rubbing shoulders with the enemy.

Several people dressed in black suits and boots followed McKinney around wearing patches on their clothes that read: "New Black Panther Party Freedom or Death."

Asked about their presence Sunday, McKinney's campaign manager, John Evans, said the New Black Panthers do not have an official role in McKinney's campaign and are not on her organization's payroll.

Hashim Nzinga, who identified himself as the New Black Panther Party's national chief of staff, said in a telephone interview Sunday that his organization volunteered to protect McKinney after learning she had received threats.

Dems have immunity from any type of negative coverage in the MSM. Seriously, when was the last time any Dem has received 'bad press'? Criticism and condemnation is reserved for conservatives.

Of course the MSM will ignore Cynthia. They'd rather go nuts over Bob Ney. See, Bob's a REPUBLICAN. Cynthia's not.

I think you've got it! White guilt mixed with liberal "superiority" births the bigotry of soft expectations. The "Cynthia's" of the world don't understand liberal elites don't agree with them, they're just "way too polite" to criticize those so lowly and pathetic...

dfwgator, you've captured how insulting this is on soooooo many levels.

Predictable. The MSM is liberal and Democrat. They do not want to embarrass their own kind. Does not fit their agenda.

There are really two options....a competent MSM that reports fairly, or the current MSM that is in it's death spiral. I'll just as soon take the current one....

Saw that last night on Fox. Im waiting for the political arena to step in and crucify her for the anti-semitic, racial spews said by her "security". Hey, if Mel can get his ass chewed for comments he made under the infuence, surely she will get a tongue lashing....or not.

I don't entirely disagree -- we have lost the poster child-- your point well taken

BUT....
We have also disposed of her goofball camouflage for others who are doing real damage -- Reid(NV), Biden(DE), Clinton(NY), Durbin(IL)... et. als...

Let's just keep peeling back the layers --

Like the old bull said.... let's walk -- and get them all!
