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

Posted on 03/23/2012 1:39:14 PM PDT by lward99

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.

“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.

http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-ehrenstein19mar19,0,3391015.story

By David Ehrenstein

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.

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.

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!!!

Does she realize that Zimmerman is hispanic? Or is she going by media reports that labeled him as white? My local Scripps Howard rag via Associated Press finally referred to him as a “light skinned hispanic”. WTF?

Rush's racism 'had lethal consequences'

Wow...so George Zimmerman killed Travon Martin, because Rush told him to kill him.

How many bottlecaps of 'Two If By Tea' do you have to send in to get Rush's secret decoder Ring?

Karen Finney's personal example of sluttiness led to the false charges by Crystal Gail Mangum against the Duke lacrosse players.

I read it on the Internet.

I am still waiting for the coverage of the incident last week where three blacks allegedly set a young white boy on fire with gasoline, while using the “w” word...
That got choked off the media somehow.

It needs to be repeated until they get it.

Wasn’t referring to her credentials, her education, or her connections. She may have “book learning” as they say, but it didn’t seem to take. I was referring to the lumping of all conservative celebrities into one, convenient, prejudicial, bucket. Where’s her “tolerance?” Her understanding? Her open mind to which her education was to have exposed her?

BTW, I don’t give a hoot about what Politico has to say.

I almost expect a Tuscon Memorial type speech from The 0ne. “Together We Thrive” t-shirts and all.

If only the victim had been a white democrat - Palin could have been blamed again.

While Geraldo blames the tragic death of Trayvon Martin on his mode of dress, I believe there is another element that the MSM will studiously ignore.

Barack Obama has done more to divide this nation along racial lines than anything I can remember. “African Americans for Obama”, “Hispanics for Obama,” “Martians for Obama”, etc., etc... are just part of it. This guy’s efforts to take us the rest of the way to communism have angered many of those who may already harbor latent or outright racist tendencies.

While Obama’s anti-American behavior has little to do with his race, there are unbalanced folks out here who DO read race into that behavior. Once they cross that threshold, their warped minds can justify nearly any act, up to and including the killing of an unarmed black boy walking through his neighborhood. I fear there is more — and worse — to come.

Barack, some of Trayvon Martin’s blood — and the blood of future black and white victims of your racism — is on YOUR hands.

We can do the same; when we see a woman like that on TV we can assume she is a toy for some powerful male to fondle. I couldn’t imagine why else anyone would hire such ignorant, unqualified affirmative action “placeholders”.
