Waters: Probe 'birthers and the teabaggers' at rallies for racist views (media should investigate)
The Hill ^ | 9/16/09 | Mike Obrien

Posted on 09/16/2009 1:14:08 PM PDT by pissant

The media should investigate the racial views of conservative activists like the ones who descended on Washington last weekend, one liberal congresswoman said Wednesday.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that it's not enough for African-Americans to levy allegations of racism against the right-leaning protesters, and that the media must look into their views.

"I want those people talked to; I want them interviewed," Waters told the liberal Bill Press Radio show in a podcast. "I want journalists to be all over those rallies and the marches with the birthers and the teabaggers."

"What I'm looking for is the very people who carry the signs who are referring to the policies in very, very strange ways like 'Obamacare' and 'Barry Obamacare with Kennedy,'" she said. "What I've been interested in is hearing from those people that everybody's referring to -- everybody on the Mall, in the rally."

Tens of thousands of conservative activists took to the National Mall last weekend to protest the Obama administration, specifically its stance on healthcare reform. Examples of incendiary rhetoric touching on racial overtones from some protesters have emerged on blogs in the days since the rally.

The media don’t want to be there, because there are too many witnesses for them to get away with their usual spin.

Yep, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is a racist. She proves more and more with each passing day.

Hey, Maxine: these folks were at the town hall meetings in August. If you want to know what they have to say, speak to your fellow Senators and Reps. They got an earfull this summer...

I’d love to see the MSM use that story as their leadin so Americans can see what the Dems really think of them. Their attitude towards regular working folks has been the driving force in their downward spiral, I hope they keep it up.

An old socialist like Maxine is going to have a hard time putting anyone else on the defensive.

They're doing just that, the race card no longer has the bite it once did, and now they're growing nervous.

Gee, Maxine, all the SRM had to do was their jobs and actually report what was going on and report the basis for the massive, legitimate concerns about the Illegal Alien not releasing his actual birth certificate or any of his other records. Of course, if that happened, he just might find himself impeached for the myriad crimes he and the lovely and charming Michelle are probably up to their eyeballs in.

Maxine Waters is an America Hating, Liberty Hating, Race baiting, dumb as a rock, a$$hole. In addition, she is a no good stinking racist. If brains were dynamite she would not even be able to blow her nose. As a southern rooster once said: “She is as sharp a bowling ball. Bowling ball that is.”

"I know it seems impossible but maybe they will eventually play the race card so much that it no longer works."

The race card is "played". Nobody w/ any sense buys that crap anymore.

Likewise the msm is "played" as demonstrated by the fool that wrote this article referring to the "tens of thousands" attending last weekend's rally. Everyone that gets their news from a source other than the msm knows there were more than 1 million there.

Their spin merely exposes them as the tools they are.

Dear Director Berle:

When leftists like Maxine Waters call small-government conservatives “Teabaggers,” does it prove their homophobia?

It seems that the Log Cabin Republicans could make an excellent public splash in defense of fiscal conservatism by going on the attack against this leftist hate speech.

Once upon a time, I had an excellent interaction with a local LCR guy in Seattle when we prepared to protest Castro’s possible attendance at the WTO. We had a confirmed crowd of over 100 ready to protest. Good fun!

Anyhow, if you find the left’s label offensive as it implies something is horribly wrong with homosexuality, you may wish to call them to account.

Thanks!

I think it is important to note that when used in this context, the term “teabagger” refers to a disgustingly filthy sexual sct, and is every bit as derogatory as you can imagine when used by people on the Left like Maxine Waters and her ilk.

How easily they forget it was DUmocrats throwing oreos at Micheal Steel, it was DUmocrats who slandered black republicans such as Alan Keyes, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice and Gollum Powell (untill he showed his true colors and jumped on the Obamatron express).

Most DUmocrats weren’t voting for DUh-bama because he was black...they voted for him for the empty promises of “free” gimmies:

The Democrat party has always been the party of slavery, sedition, subversion, socialism and surrender.

People’s “views” are their First Amendment right, you beach. You have NO right to “probe” what people think.

Do your job for once, and let’s PROBE ACORN et al. You and your ilk have a duty to watch over tax dollars. Spend your time on things that matter, like protecting taxpayers, rather than trying to childishly trying to set them up for exercising their legitimate Constitutional rights.

Good Lord, where do these people come from?

Maxine, dearie, you are the top of the list of whom I think of when I think of how much I disrespect a black person.

I lived in Los Angeles many years ago, and you have not improved one single thing for your “constituents”.

You and Mayor Bradley triggered the riots that got Reginald Denny beaten nearly to death.

You held up funding for Katrina victims until you got “$1000 each for your constituents” funded into that bill. Where did that money go? Did all the voting residents in your district get a check for $1000???

Why isn’t Watts rebuilt- over 33 years later???

Because no insurance company will write a policy for folls who would rather burn down the companies who serve them instead of getting an education and getting a job.

You have been the Representative in Congress for a great number of years for that district, and it is worse then when you got first elected.

Come and interview me, you hag. Just you try it !!
