Skip to comments.Unreal: MSNBC edits clip of man with gun at Obama rally to support racism narrative
Posted on 08/19/2009 5:25:31 PM PDT by RobinMasters
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.
Al Frankin did a skit that was on youtube - he was talking to the WN sign interpreter, pretending to sign ways to get terrorists into the White House to get Bush. Anyone know how to find this?
In a related case of extreme bias, the call to investigate the “Joker” poster as a “hate crime” has been dropped. Turns out the artists is a dem - and dems get a pass...
I get E-mails all the time saying “Send us money Now to put this Ad on TV” I was just thinking, why are we sending money to the SRM to counter it’s own spin? Don’t you get more of anything you subsidize? Rather than reward these treasonous liars I say find other ways of advertising, stop feeding the beast!
Here you go —
I figure the guy is on our side. After all it was another conservative black guy that got beat up by Union Thugs. I bet nobody even thought of messing around with this well dressed man.
This crap is unbelievable.
No one has mentioned that the black man was ALSO carrying a handgun! More power to him!
Didn’t anyone see where this gunman in the crowd was a stunt set up by some radio guy who cleared it with the cops?
We have rights; they're us.
I couldn’t find it because I don’t recall the thread title. it was this morning that I read that it was a stunt and several people were in on it. Not conservatives.
Wow, that sucks.
Obama protester’s rifle part of ‘publicity stunt’
“The protester carrying an AR-15 rifle outside President Barack Obama’s speech in Phoenix on Monday staged the “publicity stunt” with the help of two local Libertarian groups that have worked with the man on Ron Paul’s presidential campaign.
Before attending a pro-Obama health-care reform rally outside the Phoenix Convention Center, the man who identified himself as “Chris” met with members of RP4409 and Freedom’s Phoenix. That’s according to Freedom’s Phoenix Publisher Ernest Hancock, who is credited with coining and designing the logo for the “Ron Paul r3VOLution.”
Lucky for me I wasn’t watching. Not sure that anyone else that matters was watching either. Those who watch that garbage station are going to vote straight Democrat all the way to their graves regardless of the issues.
Thank you so much for finding that. I know I’m getting old and forgetful, but I knew I read that and I was beginning to wonder if I was losing my mind because no one else knew about it.
No problem, here is another one.Its a little moe detailed. I didn’t watch the video. Slow connection.
I just watched it less than ten minutes ago.
Prissy Matthews couldn’t shut her pie-hole for longer than five seconds to hear an answer from the man.
What a despicable POS she is.
I sent this to NRO, Pajamas Media, and Reason.com
Stalin would be proud.
Well the media is still livid that Rush Limbaugh laughingly supported the woman with the poster comparing Obamacare to Nazi medical programs when she was at Barney Franks’ townhall hot tub party.
She was a LaRouchian and a Kucinich voter. The media glossed over those two details.
We are living in the era of total Democrat yellow journalism.
Did you see the headline about Sarah Palin’s daughte’s ex-boyfriend’s mother pleading guilty?
Shame on those who sell out integrity to push an agenda - short-sighted bias is killing the profession...
Journalists' hatred of conservatives knows no bounds... it was shameful.
They sure sounded like conservatives to me...
That is satan himself.
