Fox News commentator calls Obama a 'skinny, ghetto crackhead' on air
Daily Mail UK ^ | Dec.23, 2011 | Meghan Keneally

Posted on 12/24/2011 6:32:43 AM PST by COUNTrecount

Mr Bozell took issue with the fact Mr Matthews said that Mr Gingrich 'looked like a car-bomber' in a video clip this past March.

Mr Matthews repeated the comparison several times, adding that he thought Mr Gingrich has 'got that crazy Mephistophelian grin of his. He looks like he likes torturing.' Feud: Mr Bozell brought up his remarks when he was talking about an insult Chris Matthews (pictured) made in March

Feud: Mr Bozell brought up his remarks when he was talking about an insult Chris Matthews (pictured) made in March

Mr Bozell then argued that similar comments would not be tolerated if said by a conservative critic.

'How long do you think Sean Hannity’s show would last if four times in one sentence, he made a comment about, say, the President of the United States, and said that he looked like a skinny, ghetto crackhead? Which, by the way, you might want to say that Barack Obama does,' Mr Bozell said Thursday.

HOT TOPICS: TRANSCRIPT OF THE TALKING HEADS

Clip of audio from Chris Matthew's show in March, with Mr Matthews saying-- 'But he looks like a car bomber. He looks like a car bomber. He looks like a car bomber. He's got that crazy Mephistophelian grin of his. He looks like he likes torturing. I mean look at the guy! This is not the face of a President.'

Mark Steyn: You know I'm not a Newt fan, but I'm not even sure thats- I mean Newt looks like a big, cuddly, slightly older Winnie the Pooh. I mean I don't know how many car bombers Chris Matthews has run into!

Brent Bozall: How long do you think Sean Hannity’s show would last if four times in one sentence, he made a comment about, say, the President of the United States, and said that he looked like a skinny, ghetto crackhead? Which, by the way, you might want to say that Barack Obama does. Everybody on the left would come forward and demand he be fired within five minutes for being so insulting towards a leader of the United States. Well this is the kind of stuff that Chris Matthews- by the way who cares! He's got 48 people watching him so we really should care.

Mark Steyn: That's true.

The media has been waiting and waiting for someone to make a statement like that so they can play the race card for years to come. This will be shown as absolute proof that the conservatives are racists.

Bozell's comments are outrageous, inflammatory and clearly over the top.

I intend to start an e-mail campaign demanding that FOX fire Bozell unless he issues an apology to skinny, ghetto crackheads for comparing them to President Urkel.

Of course I also intended to be a millionaire by the time I was 30 and that was 20 years ago so.....

Problem with that meme, is more of their remaining viewers are going to agree with the observation, than they think.

We really need to stop worrying about what liberals say.

It’s got conservatives frozen in ineffective knots.

Which of course, is exactly the plan.

Take note that my opinions are my own and free Republic is not responsible for their content.

I would have added one more word to what Mr. Bezell used , not as a description , but as an example of what might be said.: How long do you think Sean Hannity’s show would last if four times in one sentence, he made a comment about, say, the President of the United States, and said that he looked like a skinny, ghetto crackhead? I would have added the word faggot.

Not that he is mind you, but he sure is a picture of the part IMO.

This is fair play. If the Left wants to make controversial comments, we have the right to respond to the comment by giving a ‘hypothetical’ controversial comment that applies to one of their guys. Bozell could have reacted to Axis-rod’s controversial ‘monkey butt’ comment and applied it to obama with the ‘what if’ preface. The only caveat is to emphasize the hypothetical and the fact that the statement is a response to another controversial statement. Otherwise, the Left will edit out the context. Perhaps, we will need to use a crawler during these responses to prevent the Left from taking the statement out of context.

Yes, but conservatives should know by now they aren’t allowed to use such analogies on air - anything they say will be quoted verbatim. That’s one of the reasons Boehner and the others sound so boring, they have to avoid all the “Gotcha!” traps the media is constantly laying for them.

Well, he DOES look like a skinny, blue-lipped crackhead. The truth must hurt much. Not to mention he hates this country but loves our money. He gets paid for being a grade f actor who can’t string two words together to form a coherent thought without a teleprompter, but he gets to live in fashionable digs and skim his off the top. Wow. Just wow.

If this is an actual picture of 0, and I had seen this picture in the year it was taken, and had been told that this was our future president, I would have thought that I was in some sort of Twilight Zone episode where we can see into the future of an apocalyptic world. How scary!

Perhaps, but it was also a taken opportunity to slam Obama without being called a racist. I like the way it "lies" because it assures it will be noticed and thought about.

Seriously, we have put up with this verbal abuse from ‘Puddles’ and no one has held a mirror in front of his face. MSNBC needs to turn off the lights.
