CBS's Bob Schieffer made a comment Sunday about the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, that's likely to raise eyebrows on both sides of the aisle.
During a Face the Nation panel discussion about the incident, Schieffer said, "If [shooter Adam Lanza] had had an Arab name, people would be going nuts about what we ought to do right now"
I guess Schieffer forgot how when U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan murdered thirteen people while injuring 29 at Fort Hood in November 2009, much of the media initially buried his Islamic affiliation. This included the CBS Evening News that day.
Schieffer himself had some problems with Hasan's Muslim roots as on the first Face the Nation following the shootings, he said, Its looking more and more like he was just, sort of, a religious nut. And you know Islam doesnt have a majority or the Christian religion has its full, you know, full helping of nuts too.
At the end of that program, he actually blamed the Army for the shooting saying, "That doctor [Hasan] should not have been at Fort Hood.
Who? The press?
If he any skin color from tan and darker, we would be talking about Lindsy Lohan right now.
Or maybe this stupid white dude is unaware of the carnage that is happening on the S. side of Chicago? Of course he is.
Liar. It would be “workplace viiolence” and story buried
Schieffer is senile and long past his shelf date.
What a jerk.
I’d pretty much say the liberals are going nuts.
Yeh Bob, and if my aunt had ball$, she would be my uncle.
Of course, we can’t use that statement in today’s world as it is getting hard to tell who is who.- or isn’t
These people are storming the wrong places. Schools, Movie theatres, Malls, maybe they should start with the TV studios.
OH , that is right, you have armed guards and the ‘studio’ is one of the most secured areas in the building.
Now tell me who is worth more, the kids, average citizens OR people who sit at a desk reading propaganda?
NOT suggesting anything here, ‘just saying’.
If Bob Schieffer Had Made Sense ‘People Might Think They’re Going Nuts’
Who woke him up?
Just think, if the CT killer had a Jewish name...all the anti-Semites in the Liberal media would be having a field day. They did so in the George Zimmerman case (even though he is Hispanic and Black)
And liberals would be downplaying it while screaming for tolerance.
Nobody more infantile and moronic than a stupid, white lib with a microphone.
Ya. We were kind of pissed when they blew the World Trade Center.
How soon we forget....
And if he had TEA philosophy on his facebook page,,,,,there would be a feeding frenzy.
Nancy must be a registered democrat because if she was a republican, Shieffer would be all over it.
