Ed Schultz Edits Rick Perry to Falsely Accuse Him of Making Racist Remark About Obama
NewsBusters ^ | 16 Aug 2011 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 08/16/2011 4:57:29 PM PDT by mandaladon

For months, NewsBusters has been warning readers that America's media are going to do everything in their power to label all contenders to Barack Obama racist.

On Monday's "The Ed Show," the host edited Rick Perry - in mid-sentence, mind you! - to falsely accuse the Texas governor of making a racist remark about America's first black president (video follows with partial transcript and commentary): ED SCHULTZ, HOST: Perry just inferred President Obama is not in love with the United States of America?

Yes, he really said "inferred" rather than "implied." He actually did it twice Monday evening.

This is the caliber of "journalist" that gets his own show on MSNBC. But I digress:

SCHULTZ: You know, folks, this is the same garbage with heard from Sarah Palin and all these Tea Party attack artists in this country. I think there`s an element of racism every time people claim the first black president doesn't love this country.

Perry comes from the radical country club that loves to remind white America President Obama is other, not like you.

Perry also wants you to know that he's pro-business.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PERRY: I'm a pro-business governor. I don`t make any apologies about it, and I will be a pro-business president. Getting America back to work is the most important issue that faces this country, being able to pay off $14.5 trillion or $16 trillion worth of debt. That big black cloud that hangs over America.

SCHULTZ: That black cloud Perry is talking about is President Barack Obama.

Actually, no.

If you look closely at that video, you'll notice that the sound ends after Perry says, "That big black cloud that hangs over America," but he's still speaking.

Want to know what he said that Schultz and MSNBC intentionally cut out?

"That big black cloud that hangs over America, that debt that is so monstrous."

Perry wasn't suggesting, implying, or "inferring" that the "big black cloud that hangs over America" is President Obama.------------------------------I would say that Barry is a black cloud.

If I were Perry I would issue a warning to the media.
Any attempts to edit his comments to claim he is racist etc etc will be dealt with by my army of Lawyers. That is the only way to stop the lying liars.

Just wondering where the racism accusations are about Obama. Why does he have a black bus? Why couldn’t it be his red, white and blue logo? Why not the American Flag? Why not the Presidential Seal?

That reminds of BOR and staff accusing Free Republic of vile and hateful things saying that "I hate blacks" is an oft expressed opinion on FR.

No!

But the string of character were part of an article discussed here. They belong to a Francisco Asian publication article called, "Why I Hate Blacks." The string of characters appeared on links to BOR's Fox News also.

It was not malice on the part of BOR and staff. Just stupid.

Not even 1960s Marxist nut jobs and their ideological offspring like Schultz are so stupid that they feeeeeeeeeeeel that .. well, yes I remember the spoiled brats from the 1960s and there are that stupid.

But they had almost total control over media -- listen to Obama, et al. lament the loss of control they had in those days.

Ed “I know NOTH-ing” Schultz is totally unprincipled.

If he has any scruples, you can bet that he stole them from someone else!

Somebody needs to call out these other “black cloud” users as racists:

“Those numbers lurk like a black cloud over negotiations,” Ethan Siegal of the Washington Exchange, a private firm that tracks Congress and the White House for investors, said of the bloc that includes many Tea Party movement-backed Republicans who have resisted compromise on the debt ceiling.
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43695878/ns/business-stocks_and_economy/t/freshman-senator-gives-obama-debt-limit-fits/

“If people are reading every day about how bad the housing market is and how many people are losing their homes to foreclosure, it creates a huge black cloud over the whole housing market, which weighs heavily on attitudes,” said New York real estate expert Barbara Corcoran.
http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Articles/2011/01/13/Foreclosures-at-All-Time-High-May-Rise-in-2011.aspx#page1

“This is surely good news for the president, but the poll also reveals the continuing presence of a black cloud, asevaluations of his handling of the economy sank to a new low.”

Schultz is a total scumbag. He is unconscionable, unethical, and pure stupid evil. He needs to be terminated for this violation of ethical standards.

WOT AN IDIOT!

Many many TEA Partiers want Cain for president. Cain speaks to TEA Party crowds that support him.

The reason why he is “other” is because he is an ANTI-AMERICAN! He's so nearly an out and out Communist it's amazing that he hasn't admitted to it.

I agree. I do not see what the big deal was even if he had said it. Black clouds are commonly used to depict bad luck in comics. Obama is America’s black cloud.

I will bet that Obama and family will leave the US when his term ends. Unless of course, he doesn't suspend the Constitution and declare himself President with an undetermined term.

No one cares about President Obama's skin color (except for the many who voted for him strictly because of the melanin content of his skin) - its the fact that he's a marxist; his mother was a communist; the grandparents that raised him were apparently leftists... I'd like to leave his dear old pop (drunken adulterer that he was) out of the matter - but it turns out he also was a Marxist (albeit from Kenya)...

And this is what we have in the White House...

To be racist Perry would have had to say “African-American”,...or halfrican-American...or Arab-American.
