Skip to comments.Unreal: MSNBC edits clip of man with gun at Obama rally to support racism narrative

I missed this yesterday at Newsbusters but Treacher, rightly aghast, tipped me to it this afternoon. Never will you see a starker example of MSNBC getting away with the sort of deception for which Fox News would be pilloried, especially in the context of race. If you missed Mondays post about this, go watch the footage (or look at this photo) and see if you can deduce why they wouldnt want to show the guy with the rifle from the neck up during this particular segment. For all the well-deserved heat that MSNBCs primetime line-up has taken for its demagoguery Maddow has been notably egregious during the health-care blowup this proves that theyre not above pulling this crap during their daytime hard news segments either.
When youre done with the clip, scroll through the new photo gallery Zombies put together of the many, many, many Kill Bush signs at leftist protests over the past eight years. Thank goodness outlets like MSNBC and the Huffington Post took such blunt, no-argument stances against that sort of insanity at the time.

NBC doesn’t have hard news anytime. They are shills, and mouthpieces of the democratic party. Long ago they sold out real news for opinion.
Id say that black dude had some big balls to show up like that and I applaud his action. NBC sold out long ago I tune in only to see Minka for about 3 minutes a day harmless crush
I wouldn't blink if that guy pulled his grocery cart up next to mine in the checkout line. Looks like he's got all his marbles in a pile.
For a brief periods the media bragged that the election of Obama was huge stroke for reducing prejudice in this country.
Now that Obama is loosing popularity, by his own failures, I might add, the media is having to create racism.

The liberal system needs victims, so there's your outcry by the media.
That's what I would say.
Some here said the guy was a Dem plant posing for a false-flag op. I believe there was some actual evidence - though somewhat inconclusive - to support the claim.
However, even if that's true, I would STILL be glad to see him there with his AR regardless of his politics.
First of all, if he was trying to make us look bad, he did a lousy job of it. He actually makes us look good.
Second I'm all for liberals, blacks, gays, greens whoever indulging in their RKBA. They have rights too, and gun ownership often creates converts for our side.
No. The media said that if YOU did not vote for Obama, YOU are a racist.
It was also said that FINALLY a black (socialist) could get ahead in this country. BUT “the man” is still holding him back. Too many bitter Americans “with guns” (scratch that he’s a black mantoo).
Anyway, you have to admit it was a historice election. Then again EVERY election makes history and shapes the future of this country. But it’s racist to point that out. PRAISE GODDOBAMALAMAYAMA BOBARACKBODERK. He truly is the return of Buddah, Jebus (as the liberals love to call Jesus), and Mohammed (and Stalin and Hitler and...).
This is an example of MSNBC flat out lying. Why anyone would take this network seriously is beyond me.
What's ironic is that to the true believers at MSNBC no doubt think that their editing made the clip more true.
BTW, the article has an interesting link the the Zombietime blog which has an assemblage of “kill Bush” images and quotes by lefties:
Amazing how many instances he found.
That woman is just unbelievable. I’m sitting here with my mouth open saying what the heck was that? This man carrying that huge gun was a black man and she states because Obama is a black man that there must be a racial undertone to these people carrying????
Is this lunacy?
I can’t stand MSNBC and flip through it as quickly as I can. I don’t even want to see their symbol. I really do hope that the majority of our black Americans do not feel that this is true at all. I can’t stand OB, but I also do not believe he is a true black American if he’s even American at all.
My only question is why anyone would think that MSNBC’s deliberate selective editing is “unreal”. For them, it is as natural as breathing.
I don’t know what has happened but I can’t get quicktime to work on my computer using firefox.
It was working DARN! All I get is a big Q with a question mark!
He was the only one with a rifle, but there were a dozen or more open-carrying at the event.
