Scarborough: Message Of Radio Talkers Is "If You're Not White, You're Really Not Welcome..."
RCP ^ | August 16th, 2013 | Morning Joe

Posted on 08/16/2013 11:35:31 AM PDT by Third Person

JOE SCARBOROUGH: The thing is, there is so many of these social issues, so many of these racial issues. It doesn't cost you anything to be compassionate. It doesn't cost you anything to not whip up your base into a fury. It doesn’t cost you anything to stay off of talk radio or to stay off of primetime cable news shows where you get in the middle of this divisive debate and you send a message to African-Americans and other minorities you really don’t care. Hey, not only did we get slaughtered among African-Americans, we got slaughtered among Hispanic-Americans and most, I think, frightening for Republicans, we even got beaten pretty badly among Asian-Americans. The Republican Party right now is sending out signals -- if you’re not white, you’re really not welcome in this party. And by the way, people are going to get mad at me for saying it, look at the numbers from 2012. We could do things that don’t cost us a lot. We’re not even doing it.

I wonder how many low-skilled, illegals Joe actually lives next to and interacts with on a daily basis? Would he be willing to open his neighborhood/condo up to them?

Why are people like this guy dominating the media in this country? Maybe we should start targeting corporate CEO’s, Board members and advertisers that at least half this country are not stark raving lunatic leftists and they are running off their audience.

This is such BS. Some of our conservative leaders need to take these myths head on. I am so sick of being called anti-black, anti-woman, anti-hispanic, etc. The left has always used these tools to rally their one-issue voters and whip up angst. We’ve never seen this approach by the left have as much success as it has had in recent months. These issues need to be confronted and in a big way...on big platforms in prime time and late night, whether it is as guests on tv shows or through paid ads.

Joe, you are white, but we don’t want you. Minorities get the message that Republicans don’t want them because the liberal, pro-Democrat press keeps saying so. The country was told that the Tea Party was racist even though it helped elect two black congressmen in southern states. So then the country is told that those blacks aren’t really black because they’re Republicans. You can’t win with those creeps.

Well, we know we can always count on the liberal MSM to give us an objective assesment of what the conservative message is.

I don't watch TV and could not recognize this guy.

I did a quick scan of Wiki and it seems he is a former Republican congressman with a fairly conservative record.

He left congress after a female staffer was found dead in his Florida office. Apparently there was no evidence of foul play.

Then Scarborough became a media personality and now seems to be completely whacko, from snippets I have seen or heard about.

Does anybody know what happened ?

Joe's got his finger up his greasey crease. Big deal, so conservatives aren't trying to "make nice" with the rubber-faced bone-thugs, New Black Pansies, shameless Race-Pimps, or self-hating White apologists?

Good!

Go tell all the Black conservatives and Hispanic conservatives that they're in the wrong party, Joe. See how many take you seriously.

Joe Scarborough, circling the drain and fighting desperately to get noticed. How does Joe try to get noticed? Why, he throws a barrage of incendiary bombs and hopes someone will notice. Right now, Joe and his four viewers at MSNBC haven't yet succeeded in increasing viewership, and if he keeps this up, even the remaining four people who watch him will tire of this circus act.

Dear Americans who are not white: You ARE welcome in the Republican Party.
What this guy said is false on so many levels, that it (and him) can’t be taken seriously. He is a buffoon.

As far as Latinos being alienated by a tough-on-immigration stance goes, we should point out to Latinos that deporting illegal aliens will also drive hundreds, if not thousands, of white people back to Ireland and Eastern Europe.

I hope before my days on Earth are over, the full truth will be known of Joe Scarborough..he has a dirty, evil, background he is hiding from..but the truth will be known one day..

as one day the truth will be uncovered on BHO as well..not likely in my life time...but you can’t hide forever...

It has nothing to do with color and everything to do with culture. Funny isn't it...it is easy for everyone but race-baiters to judge on people's behavior, and only the Uber Left that insists on judging by skin color.

Tell us about the dead woman found in your office in 2001. Why was this covered up? Are you being blackmailed or did you come up with all these lies by yourself?

This douchebag is a prime example of the many turncoats, who claim to be conservative, but are nothing more than snakes who will turn on a heartbeat. Scarborough came was an upcoming conservative congressman from Florida......what a POS!

Joe shows he's not a racist by kissing the ass of huckster/racist/shakedown artist Al Sharpton at least twice a week on his barely watched MNBC morning show.

Mark Levin says Scarborough and Mika just are plain dumb. I, myself, think Joe is just a devotee of Obama—not even a RINO. Take a look at the Neilsen ratings— NOBODY watches that show. You wouldn’t guess that as you watch their pompous and extremely inflated self-importance.

Joe has 2 families to support. He divorced his first wife during his 3rd term in congress

He mysteriously left the congress shortly after being reelected to his 4th Congressional term to be “closer to his family”

He got so close that he remarried an aid of Jeb Bush less than a year later.

He hit the alimony/kids from 2 families jackpot when he got a gig on MSNBC called “Scarborough Country” where he was a pretend conservative voice who spent most of his time trashing President Bush.

He is now the resident faux conservative on MSNBC because he has no principles and knows who butters his bread.

Joe Scarborough is a former Republican congressman who was quasi-conservative when he had to answer to constituents and get re-elected but once out of office - under questionable circumstances - he landed a lucrative gig (6 million per year) on the leftist-dominated cable network MSNBC. Joe poses as the 'conservative' with a bunch of leftist robots so he can denounce the Republican party and the left can then claim 'See, even Republicans agree with us!' as if Scarborough represents actual Republicans. Few are fooled except the miniscule MSNBC audience - who probably believe Obama really was born in the U.S.A.

No. The lying media including Joey S. is sending out signals that conservatism is anti black and anti hispanic.

Joe is an idiot.

Likely another blackmail victim, since there are few other factors to account for his conservative to liberal transition.

All of the Salem syndicate hosts, that I’m familiar with, go out of their way to embrace minority callers.

Rush certainly goes out of his way as well.

Scarborough keeps saying we. Who's this we he is talking about? Because Joe is certainly not a conservative and whether or not he's even a RINO is debatable.

So are you saying the racism that brought Obama into the Presidency is okay?
The man had ZERO qualifications to be President. He won. Because of his skin color. He spent 4 years destroying America and was re-elected. Because of his skin color. This is okay? We have no right to be upset and call people on this?
