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.

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.
