NBC News: No 'Grand Wizard' in GOP to Force Cain Out
foxnews.com ^ | November 9, 2011 | foxnews.com

Posted on 11/09/2011 1:12:53 PM PST by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!

ANN CURRY, CO-HOST, "TODAY" SHOW: "He's not stepping down, continuing to suck the air out of the narrative the Republican party really wants to tell. Does the party now wish he would just go away?"

DAVID GREGORY, HOST, "MEET THE PRESS": "Well there is no, you know, Grand Wizard in the party right now who can really force the issue. I've talked to Cain's advisers in Iowa, they think their support is still strong there, that it's not falling. There may be cracks in the foundation according to pollsters I'm talking to, that his numbers may be starting to shift but right now core support remains there."

UPDATE: David Gregory has apologized and tweeted the following: "'Wizard' remark this morning was a very poor choice of words. Did not mean to make that connection at all. Was not thinking. I apologize"

Oh, so you didn't intend to make that connection? Spouting off racist crap is just so ingrained it doesn't require any connection of thought?

Funny how race is so important to the left.

And such a non-issue to those on the right.

Yet this disgusting narrative continues unabated, without question.

All Klan leaders and nearly all Klan members have traditionally been Democrats. The Democrat Party has always been the racist party, and their latest incarnation is far more destructive to America’s black population than Senator Byrd’s and his fellow Klansmen’s more violent activities. Of course Gregory didn’t intend to make that connection, and of course it will be forgiven, it’s not like David Gregory is a republican - or this would be his macaca moment.

The Grand Wizard has always been a DEMOCRAT.

The Ku Klux Klan was and is the terrorist wing
of the Democrat Party.

Today the KKK is Occupy Wall Street

Where is the Grand Wizard of the Democrat party to tell Obama to get out.

Talk about sucking wind. Obama is killing the whole bunch and still they suck his buttocks.

The Dems need a Grand Wizard a lot more than the Republicans do.Have they seen Obama’s Poll numbers. Have they seen their Congress Poll numbers. I have to admit the Dems may not have a Wizeard, but they do have the Wicked Witch of the West and her idiot Cousin from Nevada.

“Sheets” Byrd finally REALLY did a real service for this country... He took the dirt nap and is now pushing up daisies. Him and that fat, sodden, drunk Kennedy who left a young pregnant girl to drown.

Was that Mean-spirited? Crude? Yeah, maybe....but I don’t mourn nor eulogize the Enemy.

Ever.

Here is my e-mail to the Today Show:

“David Gregory’s racist comment on the Today show was overt and offensive.

To suggest this was a “poor choice of words” is further insulting. Only a racist would use the term “Grand Wizard” in a slip up or otherwise. Media figures have been suspended and fired for far less agregious “slip ups.”

Because my daughter asked me what a “Grand Wizard” was, The Today Show will not allowed on our TV until David Gregory apologizes to Herman Cain and the GOP for even suggesting a political party should have a “Grand Wizard” determining the political fate of People of Color.

Sincerely (and ashamedly),

- My real name was here.”

David Gregory is a typical smug liberal media guy who isn't one-tenth as smart as he thinks he is. The use of the term "Grand Wizard" to describe a hypothetical leader of the Republican party who could theoretically remove Herman Cain, a black American candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, was, a best, a Freudian slip. At worst, a deliberate slur against the GOP and Herman Cain. Either way, David Gregory's apology rings hollow.

If Cain can surmount this very clever attempt by Obama operatives working with the DNC and the media propaganda machine to destroy his good name and his candidacy, it will not only be a huge victory but will signal a sea change in the erosion of the media's power to destroy a political candidate based on flimsy, unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct. I, for one, remain 100% behind Herman Cain and will proudly cast my vote for him in my state's Republican primary. We need a bold, serious candidate like Herman Cain, not a compromising wimp like Mitt Romney.

DAVID GREGORY, HOST, "MEET THE PRESS": "Well there is no, you know, Grand Wizard in the party right now...

David Gregory has apologized and tweeted the following: "'Wizard' remark this morning was a very poor choice of words.

Yes it was a poor choice of words. Very poor.

But it was EXACTLY what your thought process consists of.



There is NO reform or cure for that.

I have posted this a few times, looks like it has come around again...





They are beyond help, they do not have the capacity to be educated out of communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness." They can not or refuse to see the destructive nature of the communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness" they promote.

What the supporters of communist "liberalism and progressiveness" will destroy is the very nation that gave them their freedom. They will complain, demonize, belittle and protest when opposed but only preserving this Republic in it’s original context will continue to give them their freedom to complain and protest against it.

They will not stop destroying this nation of their own accord.

The only way to preserve freedom for American Citizens in this Republic is suppression of the communist supporters. "Taking the high road" is rapidly becoming something to be put on the shelf for a while. It is now time to step up, get in their face and call them worthless communist bastards undeserving of a place in this Republic.

So, how?

One battle at a time and they will kick, scream, curse and fight the return of their freedom and sane behavior every inch of the way. If some semblance of our former Republic can be restored they will require constant observation. The communists will revert to demanding total control faster than can be understood by rational thought as rational thought is not understood by communists.

The supporters of communist "liberalism and progressiveness" will NEVER be normal freedom loving American Citizens. It is my understanding of history that not that long ago American Citizens put freedom before communism and put communist traitors in jail.

Worked once, ought to work again.

The more I keep thinking about this; David Gregory is insinuating many things.That he has disdain for the tea party obviously...and that he actually is insinuating that the GOP is racist? along with himself? So he is a dirty liberal scoundral that wants his savior Obama.How sad can America get when the media want dictatorship and tyranny?

It worked back then because the political climate was such that the WWII veterans were here, had just gotten done destroying the latest incarnation of Socialism, the Nazis, and had the will to stand up and resist them.

The comms were very content to wait, proselytize, agitate, and just....wait...for the WWII guys to get too old to do anything. That day is here.

In the meantime, these vermin were worming their way into our educational system, into our legal system (see “ACLU” and Roger Baldwin, William Z. Foster) into the Democrat party as their vehicle to power, and into every facet of our ways of life so that they could be prepared for THIS moment in time. FDR’s admin was RIDDLED with these scumbags.

It’s what they do. It’s the wet dream they’ve been jerking off over for the last 60 years.

You are spot-on about what needs to be done. But in my opinion, the vast majority of Americans have been so dumbed down and ill-educated to the point of brainwashing, that what you suggest could not come about, short of civil war - which is what the socialists want anyway.

And like you said - “rational thought” doesn’t enter into the picture with these morons; they’d be wiped clean in a civil war with the conservative heart of this country.

That’s why they need to have control of the FedGov apparatus and all the coercive measures of force that that can bring to bear.

If the military goes along with it, then we are truly at the end of our run.

Doesn’t mean we have to go down without a fight though...

I just do not see the military sinking into that level of action against the American population. What with the current communist regime intentionally fowling the super-whizzbang committee negotiations so as to trigger the military spending cuts and the ongoing obvious disrespect to them by said same regime they probably will decline the invitation to that little party.

The PC Generals will issue the orders from such a President that would stoop to that and from there down a series of "mistakes" will occur that prevent an effective deployment.
