MSNBC Hosts Stupefied That Martin Luther King III Says To Engage With The Tea Party' (Touré)
Truth Revolt ^ | May 9, 2014 | Caleb Howe

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

On MSNBC today, Martin Luther King III said that African-Americans should be members of both political parties, and should engage with the Tea Party. Host Touré was absolutely floored and visibly at a loss over what he clearly considered an incomprehensible suggestion. “

"We're not a monolithic people, so, while I happen to be a Democrat, I think it's important for African-Americans to be Republicans, I think it's important for African-Americans to be independent. I say this, kind of, I also think it's important to be engaged with the Tea Party."

The noticeably confused hosts don't know how to deal with that. They fumble out a "why" and then form a question to be sure that it is clear how they feel about that. "Do you think the Tea Party's problem with President Obama is only about his policies? Or something else about him?" Why, what ever could that something else be?

When Touré responds "why," you can hear the MSNBC crowd laughing off-camera. Because the idea that people in the tea party are human beings who matter and vote and count as actual American citizens is not something MSNBC's audience is prepared to accept. Nor are its hosts, obviously.

Why would whites ever be Democrats? See. See how racist that sounds, Touré?

When a specific people or political group is regarded as less than human, it makes it much easier for genocides to be carried out by those sharing the same agenda as a regime who considers such people ‘enemies of the state’.

We have all the makings for what most even now will refuse to accept as being prepared against us.

Communism is more respected by the MSM than they show the Tea Party.

That speaks volumes.

I’m surprised that he didn’t call him “uppity”, and that he and his people should vote how they’re told to vote.

The Tea Party would love to have conservative black people of faith join them. Of course the biased and diviive MSM would never have you believe that. Good people are good people no matter what their race. The reverse is also true.

This whole notion that conservatives don’t like Obama’s politics because he’s black just baffles me. Have people forgotten how much we disliked the policies of Clinton and Carter? What was the excuse then? We didn’t like Southerners?

If that ain’t outreach, I don’t know what is.

Next scene; The news reporters both wrestle Toure to the ground in order to remove Toure’s hands from their clamped position around MLK3’s fat neck. Toure escalates into hysteria as he yells “No! You’re Lying!! The Tea Party is Dangerously Violent, Dangerously Violent! No.”

‘When a specific people or political group is regarded as less than human, it makes it much easier for genocides to be carried out...’ exactly and that has been the intent of MSNBC and the other MSM outlets all along.
There is a proper and effective response to this and I am surprised that it has not been tried, by the phys drug addled dems as of yet. I’m sorry they are for genocide, sometimes I get confused.

********************************
Many do. FReeper Lloyd Marcus, former Col. and US Rep Allen West, US Sen. Scott, Mayor Mia Love, former Fed Reserve branch Prez and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza Caine, etc.

All are highly respectable representatives of black Americans.

As if we didn’t already have enough philosophic Democrats posing as Republicans!

They’re simply saying, “Hey, this Democratization of the GOP is working so well, let’s do more of it!”

Yep, FReeper Lloyd was the 1st FFeeper I’ve met (at a rally in Milford, Michigan a couple of years ago. I met FReeper Syncro minutes later at the same rally).
