QUOTE:Maddow: ..Scaring white people is good politics on the Conservative side of the spectrum, and it always has been.

of scary immigrants or scary black people (agesticulating wildly as if counting items off a list )
somebody coming to take what is white people's "rightful property "

Letterman:There's a guy who apparently takes interviews, press conferences and edits them and cobbles them together so they give the exact opposite impression of what was being expressed. What's the guys name?
Maddow:Breitbart Andrew Breitbart.
0:35 ….he can just make up any old thing he wants and then somebody, I think, in this case it was Fox gets a hold of it and reports it as factual as factual as factual and in this case it was racism in the US Department of Agriculture

...how much... Goood Lord.... here’s a woman as it turnns out doing the right thing, how much time,energy was wasted because this ..words were bleeped out but it seems to be by "as*hole f**king around.

Maddow:Yup. (head bobbing excitedly)

1:19 Letterman:and now how can that go on the people gleefully showing it agaiin and again as though it were fact what responsibility do they bear?

1:29 Maddow:They, I think, bear a lot of responsibilty.

1:38 Maddow:scaring white people is good politics on the conservative side of the spectrum and it always has been.

Maddow:Breitbart Andrew Breitbart.

Goood Lord.... here’s a woman as it turnns out doing the right thing, how much time,energy was wasted because this ..words were bleeped out but it seems to be by "as*hole f**king around.

Maddow:Yup (head bobbing excitedly)

1:19 Letterman:and now how can that go on the people gleefully showing it agaiin and again as though it were fact what responsibility do they bear?

1:29 Maddow They, I think, bear a lot of responsibilty.

Letterman: so in the collective ideology of Fox and others to what end what is the objective of this sort of nonsense?

1:38 Maddow: ..scaring white people is good politics on the conservative side of the spectrum and it always has beem the idea is your sort of rile up the white base to be afraid of an other to be afraid of scary immigrants or scary black people (agesticulating wildly as if counting items off a list ) (second picture above)somebody coming to take what is white people's "rightful property " (head bobbing ) or rights so you get them riled up so they get the need to vote in self defense and they vote for conservative cadidates because of that fear, its, I mean they've, we've been doing it for decades

Letterman:and I kep thinking OK it started a hundred years ago maybe a thousand decades with each ensuing decade it should be a little less a little less a little less we should be smarter our kids their kids should be smarter.....
but yet these poeple continue to fan this flame excuse me for mixing metaphors here that is cancer i mean leave it alone let it go away it's not right there are other problems... Applause..... the audience applauded becasue the "Applause" sign was turned on.

End of transcript

Bizarre.Shameless.Outrageous. Wholly ignorant. These two demonstrate an appalling deficiency in cognitive ability, mental acuity that belies to an astounding degree the "rarified" position they inhabit in our society.

So you get them riled up so they get the need to vote in self defense and they vote for conservative cadidates because of that fear, its, I mean they've,..(abrupty replaces the word they've with we've)... we've been doing it for decades

Can anyone explain why she goes from I mean, they've abruptly correcting herself, replacing they've with we've been doing it for years?
Why does she include herself in ...been doing it for years?

Such goody-goody types. I’ll bet you Maddow and Letterman (along with Keithie and Chrissy) are as racist in their thoughts and deeds as anyone.

All their race-obsessed talk is just a smokescreen

CBS waits 24-48 hours before putting new broadcasts on line, so this video hasn’t been made public yet neither at CBS or “You Tube”. Gawker seems to get a preview of the most recent broadcasts before anyone else.

It is truly a wonderful and awe-inspiring sight to see the proposition that “Liberalism Is A Mental Disease” verified in real time, on worldwide media!

What more could a sane conservative ask for?

Maddow and Letterman..... liberal critical mass was achieved in Times Square - I’m surpised there wasn’t a spontaneous detonation. Of course Letterman will have Andrew Breitbart on to refute his slander, right? Right?

I didn’t think so..

Sorry, the too-hip-for-words studio audience may eat it up, but going whole-hog partisan is simply going to kill his ratings like it did Oprah’s.

He’ll feel great about venting his spleen on camera but he won’t feel great about watching his show sink.

I used to when he was still on NBC back in the 1980's.  Back then, the last thing he wanted to talk about was politics.

He's gotten worse with age.

Ya’ know, these d-bags started this fight. It just took the Country a few decades to realize it was the subject of their contempt.

I wonder how many late night viewers laugh with uncertainty as these quasi-commies indulge in their disdain for the things we love.

Since when does Andrew Breitbart edit press conferences and interviews and cobble them together? This is the first I’ve heard of that. Dave is flat-out wrong and owes Andrew an apology. Another thing: I just love it when a serial adulterer lectures me on moral issues.

It indeed is a smokescreen. The video of Shirley Sherrod’s speech revealed the racism of the NAACP audience. There is no way one could mistake the overwhelming evidence of racism by the NAACP. I believe Breitbart wanted to reveal black racism against whites that is the true picture of the NAACP, an organization that is trying to tie racism to the Tea Party movement.

Sherrod was only the catalyst and and the interaction between her and the audience is the main point of Breitbart’s use of the video. Sherrod was throwing out comments that not only triggered racist reactions against whites, but it also revealed an acceptance of Marxism where wealth is redistributed. This paints a revealing picture of the NAACP!

I see the State Owned Media and useful fools like Letterman and Maddow,has done its best to muddy the waters with the focus on Sherrod. This is an effort to shift focus away from the real culprit, the NAACP. And Sherrod, who has acted to promote the media’s effort to redeem her, has dug herself in deeper with revelations about her husband’s racism and now their business dealings.

Oh, far too many of my very liberal friends must still think it's 1986 and still believe he's funny. To be perfectly honest, the late night talk show genre should have come to a screeching halt when Johnny Carson hung it up.

(That and Rush should have waited about 5 years or so and taken his TV experiment to Fox News, but that's neither here nor there).

RD, stealing your idea....:-)

David Letterman foments hate for conservatives, then retreats to his luxurious home.

Check out David Letterman's multi-million dollar mansion. Do you think he allows illegal aliens and poor folks access to this place? I mean, after all, he puts himself out there as great defender of all that is just.

This is the drive by media meme. Something like this happened earlier when Clinton comitted perjury and the drive by media said it was just about sex and the GOP were just a bunch of dirty old men.

Not I, unfortunately. I can't even guess, since I canceled TV 2 years ago. I felt agitated after watching, and concluded, quite subjectively, that a certain amount of corporate sponsored mind control was entering into my life via TV with adverse effect.

I’m not sure why we allow the mentally-deranged in front of cameras to spew their racist hate. (Anyone who would advocate putting people into substandard public housing, or making them dependent on the government because of their race, is the worst form of racist.)

From NewsBusters.org, June 9, 2009...

Seven months after Election Day, and the attacks on Sarah Palin keep coming.

On Monday, CBS's David Letterman on the "Late Show" shamelessly went after the Alaska governor and her family during his opening monologue, as well as in his "Top Ten" list.

Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York

10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska

9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.

8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray

7. Keyed Tina Fey's car

6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack

5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts

4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn't tell the difference.

3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about

2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her "slutty flight attendant" look

1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked-up by Alex Rodriguez."

Maddow:scaring white people is good politics on the conservative side of the spectrum and it always has been.

I have a great, proven idea from "Progressives" of the past century. We herd all these despicable, hateful, racist white people off to big camps and re-educate them. If they fail to see the error of their ways, we provide them with a Final Solution to their errant thinking. The sooner we start the better so we can have Utopia, the way our Progressive brethren did in the last century in Germany, Russia, Cambodia and China. / sarc
