MSNBC vid: Gun-Toting Protesters are 'White' Racists... Black Guy with AR-15 Edited to Conceal Race
youtube ^ | 8-18-09

Posted on 08/20/2009 12:09:12 PM PDT by past_present

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.

Look at the video and see how much trouble they went through to conceal this guys face/skin! It's great. These guys are too much. Then they start talking about the next John Hinckley. Good times.

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.

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.

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?

I' surprised they didn't just insert an animation of a white guy with a bazooka into the footage. Or a clip from the man with the Golden Gun with Christopher Lee:

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.

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.

California's Proposition 187 would have limited the various types of welfare that illegal aliens could receive.

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.

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.

Nothing new there. Look how many times they’ve talked about racist republican “birthers” yet managed to omit any mention of Phil Berg, Alan Keyes, and Roger Calero.

Its called cowardice.

No one should be surprised at this.

The left is running so scared right now,they're pulling out each and every stinking stop to try and derail any and all attempts at stopping them.
The media is their staunchest ally,and they're beginning to show cracks in their foundations.
The coming 2010 elections will seal their fate.We should continue to push forward and weaken them more and more until they're a total non-issue.

“Brewer failed to mention the man she described was black.”

Also failed to mention these gun-toting protesters in Arizona were NOT 2nd Amendment conservatives, but have been found to be Alex Jones 911 Truthers. And the young lady with the Obama is Hitler photo confronting barney was a Lyndon Larouche activist. The Larouchers have been sticking a Hitler mustache on every President since Bush 1.

I do not think people should carry the type of weapon to those meeting in public. It creates a bad atmosphere.
If you are life loving conservertives, why should you support violence and bloodshed? The scripture said, it is because of rebellion, the sanctuary was destroyed, the power of the holy people utterly broken. Hitler manufactured a crisis to gain absolute power. In view of this, free republic should ban, delete rebellious speech.

Since the man who carries a weapon is a black, how do we know he is not part of Acorn in attempt to manufacture news, to make conservertives to look bad. There are so many things we do not know, so many things can be manipulated by both sides, therefore take everything with a grain of salt.

“Love thy enemies, do good to those who hate you” (Mat5:44). That is Jesus’s commandament.

By the way, this is how Presidential families should dress. Say what you will about the Kennedy's (and that is quite a bit), at least they were always well-dressed to portray an image to be respected. You don't walk off of Air Force 1 in beach attire. What are we, trash?

I was expecting Obama to be just another bad president, like Carter or something. I never in a million years expected him to be the second coming of Karl Marx. I thought we could just wait him out, but I said the same thing about rap, when it came out too. whoops

Looking at jeanguy04’s posting history, he/she doesn’t appear to be a troll. Jeanguy is taking the most simplistic and historically void view of “turn the other cheek,” but not a totally uncommon one. For a suprisingly good read on this, go to the wiki at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turning_the_other_cheek (Yeah, shocked me, too.). Such views can be annoying, but don’t rise to the level of trolldom IMHO. Of course, I could be wrong...

The scripture said, it is because of rebellion, the sanctuary was destroyed, the power of the holy people utterly broken.

The rebellion referred to was rebellion against God. Scripture is filled with references to God's people successfully rebelling against oppressors or staving off invaders provided they were right with God first. This is not a license to revolution but you're mischaracterizing scripture.

“Sounds a bit like Ghandi suggesting that the Jews should have happily gone to their fate in concentration camps to prevent war in europe.”

That’s the pacifist interpretation of “turn the other cheek,” which I personally reject. I prefer the take that it means don’t take vengence but demand equality/respect. It comports with the biblical themse that (1) vengence isn’t to be taken by man — note that vengence and self defense are different things, as are vengence and righteousness, and (2) do not submit to man, only to God.
