Russert Amazed Black Republicans Seek Tea Party Support, A Group Many 'Claim To Be Racist'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 05/05/2010 9:18:39 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Listen to the surprise in Luke Russert's voice as he reports that many African-American Republican candidates for congress are seeking support from the Tea Party. After all, says Luke, the Tea Party is a group that "a lot of folks have claimed to be racist against African-Americans."

Russert expressed his amazement on MSNBC this morning, discussing a New York Times article that reports that as many as 32 black Republicans are running for Congress.

Who claims they’re racist?

Only media talking heads and far-left nutcases.

Hey Luke, look in the mirror and you can see a real bigot.

Tell all your 'friends.'

Both of them.

“A lot of folk”= the left and its kowtowing MSM. Was it Hitler or Stalin who gave us The Big Lie? I forget and both are equally influential to the Left.

There’s a mixed race “republitarian” running in my district claiming to be a tea party candidate. He’ll only pick up a percent or two in the primary but he’s welcome to run.

The MSM is not biased; by all of their accounts African-American, or any other race for that matter, tea party members are just as racist as White tea party members.

A Group Many ‘Claim To Be Racist’

####

Well Russert, “many claim” that your propangandizing, hack “profession” is infested with either queers, the talentless and/or anti-American Commies.

And my “many claim” is just as valid as yours, I just don’t have a public platform.

Errrr... Luke, those 'folks' claiming the Tea Party to be racist were you liberal media types making crap up and then believing your own stinking pile of crap. In my neck of the woods we call people like you lying scumbag idiots.

Here’s what you can do Luke. Resign from your MSNBC/NBC job. Then, go out and find a job in this economy, with your skills, without your daddy’s help. Then report back to us. Oh, and STFU!

Now, WHO is it that sees everything through the prism of race?
WHO is it that takes “African American studies” in college?

Look THERE for the racists, not amongst conservative people who are inherently INDIVIDUALISTS, not group thinkers.

Let’s just say that we don’t much like black criminals, or corrupt black politicians, or entitled blacks on permanent welfare for generations. All typical Democrats.

And we don’t much like white criminals, or corrupt white politicians, or entitled whites on permanent welfare for generations, either. Also mostly typical Democrats, or RINOs.

What we do like is people willing to work to support their families, or to work for the good of their country, black or white.

Anyone else see Dave Chappelle’s “Black White Supremacist”?

Funniest skit ever. Blind black man raised as a white supremacist, doesn’t know any better. Ends up finding out, has to divorce his [white] wife because he doesn’t want to be married to a white woman who would marry a black man.

Great satire on racism.

Yeah, right, Lukey. “Some say,” “experts claim,” “it is widely reported that,” etc, etc. Media credibility is at an all-time low because of this sort of kindergarten innuendo. I have a great idea - if you want to find out if any of the black Republican candidates buy into that crap...why don’t you ask them? It’s called “reporting.”

Luke is a naive kid who got his job in respect to his deceased father. He’s probably surprised that 32 Black Americans are seeking office as Republicans. Things are beginning to change Luke as more and more educated black Americans realize that the Democrat party has done nothing more for them other than to suppress them as victims.

On the O’Reilly Ranking Scale, Luke Russert earns
the dubious distinctive title of “ATOMHEAD!” and for those from Rio Linda, an Atom is a hell of alot smaller than a Pin!

Much worse than his dad I think. Maybe you know more about Tim Russert than I do, but from my recollection of him, I doubt that he would have made the same comment that his son did.

"a lot of folks have claimed to be racist against African-Americans."

This is a far too common construct in today's "journalism." In my junior high school writing classes, such were called "glittering generalities" (it was pounded into my head, and I still remember the phrase 40 years later!) and were automatic deductions.....

After all, says Luke, the Tea Party is a group that "a lot of folks have claimed to be racist against African-Americans."

What "lot of folks" are we talking about?

The DNC. The party of the race-obsessed. And journalism? Sadly, the last refuge of race-obsessed Democrats.

Russert uses the time-honored journalistic tradition of quoting his own opinion and attributing it to "some say".

For the record, conservatives, Repubs, tea-party folk don't care what color you are. If you agree with us, if you love God, love America, and believe in the constitution, you're one of us. Democrat race-mongers will say, if you're black and you are with us you aren't really black; if you're hispanic and you're with us you aren't really hispanic. Thats fine. If you are one of us, you're one of us. We claim one another.

The church people in the black community have always struggled against the appeal of “Sportin’ Life” types to their young people. The problem was that they followed Dr. King out of the Republican Party onto Lyndon Johnson's plantation after Johnson declared his war on poverty. Now some are beginning to realize that the ‘white man's” party offers more to individual blacks than the Democrats do. Social democracy is actually antithetical to black Christianity. It is both atheistic/agnostic and cold-blooded. Black Christianity is fidiest and warm.

I heard that someone said that they read about an article quoting this person that his sister heard on the radio about a TV show where the main character said his brother heard on the phone that there was an email that the Tea Party was racist.

Why would any African American want to be part of THAT?
