Skip to comments.MSNBC vid: Gun-Toting Protesters are 'White' Racists... Black Guy with AR-15 Edited to Conceal Race

On Tuesday, MSNBCs Contessa Brewer fretted over health care reform protesters legally carrying guns: "A man at a pro-health care reform rally...wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip....there are questions about whether this has racial overtones....white people showing up with guns." Brewer failed to mention the man she described was black.

He was taking a page out of the Black Panthers’ playbook. It was going to the capitol in California and being arrested for carrying rifles and shotguns that made Huey Newton and Bobby Seale cult heroes in the 70s.
Who are you going to believe, MSNBC or your lying eyes?
Does anyone now doubt that the media is actively part of the DNC?? They actually edited the video to show what they wanted, to cloak the truth from their viewers. How can anyone possibly think they are not biased after seeing this?
These people would willing report that the dissidents burned down the Reichstag!
Liberals in defense mode.
When they fear their side is not what they thought it would be, in the pocket of industry, they lash out, distract, snark.
Calling opponents racists gives themselves a sense of carte blanche not to think about the nitty gritty of the health bill, the pharmaceutical company no-bargain.
Is anyone surprised?
The funniest part is that the handful of ignorant leftist idiots who actually watch MSNBC for “news” are stupid enough to fall for this hoax. And yet the libs love to attack Fox News for “lying”.
I saw this video on another thread. Just wondering if there is a photo or video that actually shows that the guy is black?
Imagine a leftwing crowd burning down the Capitol before the 2010 elections with the GOP looking to win big. The media reports that it was the “radical right” with heavily edited video.
Do you think the media would NOT do that? This MSDNC report should answer that.
The unedited video is up there somewhere. Its been linked on blogs and everything else.
Nice job, MSNBC.
By the way, Toure, the mental midget said:
“And I think we’re gonna see somebody, some sort of Squeaky Fromme, some sort of Mark Hinckley figure, because there’s so much anger in the country about him.”
Hey, Toure must have been pressed for time.
He was compressing two figures: John Hinckley and Mark David Chapman.
Well then it should be linked here. Where?
I attended a Pro-187 rally at a local high school which had a large number of African-American supporters on hand. The Los Angeles Times reporter literally had to climb to a spot on the top row behind me in order to frame a shot excluding them all from the next days front page photo.
If you can stand Rick Sanchez’ blathering here is not only a video but an interview with the guy.
Watch this CNN report. I guess this was before the memo was sent out.
Obviously ideology trumps accuracy at pMS-NBC. Additional proof is that they surely have received hundreds of emails informing them of their error, yet they choose not to correct themselves.
I went to their webpage and sent an email telling them of my disgust.
Hope you do the same.
This was a pro-Obama event BTW
