MSNBC: Rush's racism 'had lethal consequences' (Video)
Times247 ^ | 3/23/12 | Scott Whitlock

MSNBC analyst and Democratic strategist Karen Finney disgustingly smeared Rush Limbaugh and several Republican presidential candidates on Thursday, charging that the racist hate of these conservatives had "lethal consequences" in the case of Trayvon Martin, an African American teen shot in Florida.

After decrying "bigotry and stereotypes tak[ing] over our better judgment," Finney sneeringly insisted that when "Rush Limbaugh calls a presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, a magic negro ... in the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences."

Good grief - how long before Rush is arrested or assassinated under NDAA? This is becoming insane.

Stereotypes?

You mean like “White men are racist”?

Rush didn’t call him a “magic negro.” It was some black “journalist” from, I think LA Times, who first used that phrase.

Rush needs to file suit against these people whether he has standing or not. He has the resources to break these people. Somehow, I doubt the networks will cover the legal expenses for the people that malign the reputation of a person in Rush’s position. I would love to see the tables turned.

I’d like to see Sharpton protest along with her seeing that the lyrics are his quotes.

“Rush Limbaugh calls a presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, a magic negro


Ah hahahaha haha that is funny....Obama isn’t magic. At least, not according to the original person who coined the term ‘magic negro’
Although, MSNBC may have certain powers from being in leaque with el dioblo.

Obama the ‘Magic Negro’
The Illinois senator lends himself to white America’s idealized, less-than-real black man.

L.A.-based DAVID EHRENSTEIN writes about Hollywood and politics.

March 19, 2007
AS EVERY CARBON-BASED life form on this planet surely knows, Barack Obama, the junior Democratic senator from Illinois, is running for president. Since making his announcement, there has been no end of commentary about him in all quarters — musing over his charisma and the prospect he offers of being the first African American to be elected to the White House.

But it’s clear that Obama also is running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination — the “Magic Negro.”

The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined by snarky 20th century sociologists, to explain a cultural figure who emerged in the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education. “He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist,” reads the description on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_Negro .

To a liberal, if you actually commit a crime, you are not to be held accountable. On the other hand, if you have absolutely nothing to do with a given crime, you are to be held accountable for it.

Karen Finney is nothing but a hate-filled racist political hack.

Correction: Shapee Sparton is not smart enough to coin a phrase like “magic negro” but he is the one who used the term to describe Obama.

Carry on.

Miss Finney... I suggest you check out the facts first before making a statement that is a blantant and out and out lie. Rush Limbaugh did NOT make that statement. I could tell you who but... why should I do your work for you? Look it up yourself and LEARN!!!
