Bashir: Conservatives Cool With Slaves Building White House But Can't Accept Black President There
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/06/2012 1:24:00 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

The odious Martin Bashir is at it again. On his MSNBC show today, Bashir suggested that conservatives, racists that they are, were happy to have slaves help build the White House, but can't accept a black president living there.

Who’s your least-favorite MSNBC personality? Mine is the lesser-known Martin Bashir, for frequently pulling stuff like this. Ping to Today show list.

When will these idiots ever get it? It has nothing to do with his color and everything to do with his character. Exactly what Dr. King fought for.

Actually, there are several blacks that I would love to see living in the White House. What these idiots don’t get is that we would vote for a black conservative in a heartbeat!

Lord knows we’ve got more than enough home-grown nitwits here, and certainly don’t need to import any!

Yep, we’d be just fine and dandy with a WHITE communist in the White House. It’s because he’s a black communist that we have a problem with him!

In 2003, Bashir conducted a series of interviews with pop singer Michael Jackson, as part of a documentary for ITV. Following the broadcast, which was viewed by 14 million in the UK and 38 million in the US, several media personalities accused Bashir of yellow journalism, claiming that he deliberately doctored the recordings in order to paint Jackson in an unflattering light, as well as emphasising the allegations of child molestation made against Jackson. The New York Times called Bashir’s journalism style “callous self-interest masked as sympathy.”

In response, Jackson and his personal cameraman released a rebuttal interview, which showed Bashir complimenting Jackson for the “spiritual” quality of the Neverland Ranch, thus contradicting the journalist’s previous statements that it was a “dangerous place” for children. Bashir also describes Jackson as a wonderful father and says that Jackson’s relationship with his children “almost makes him weep”.

Slavery still exists and is thriving in Africa due to Islam. Black Muslims are the modern day slavers, and BHO2 knows it.

They get it perfectly well.

It's Alinsky's Rule #5: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.

The ridicule doesn't have to be true. All that matters is that every utterance out of your mouth denigrates you opponent in some way.

These aren't rocket scientists. They're mindless demagogues.

Conservatives Cool With Slaves Building White House But Can't Accept Black President There

Hey Martin -- it was only the DEMOCRATS who were cool with slavery, Jim Crow and the KKK.

As my tagline says: Liberals' only problem with American slavery is that the slaves were privately owned.

Was the WH in fact, built with slave labor? That thought had not occurred to me before. I’m not sure what difference it makes anyway.

I’m pretty sure slaves were not used when it was gutted and rebuilt during Truman’s term.

These guys continue to make my point. They can’t help themselves.

The DNC is the party of the race obsessed. Race is the lens through which they see the world. Race politics, ethnic politics, is their tool of choice because its the one that comes most naturally to them. As they say, to a hammer everything is a nail; and to the race obsessed everything is race.

They can’t conceive of a world in which race doesn’t matter, and if you try to explain it to them, they see your lips moving but they can’t hear a word you’re saying.

Martin Bashir Brushes Off Seriousness of New Black Panthers’ Bounty on George Zimmerman
By Jeffrey Meyer | April 05, 2012 | 17:29

On the April 5 episode of his show, liberal MSNBC host and self-proclaimed ‘journalist’ Bashir excused the bounty placed on George Zimmerman by the New Black Panthers because there are only “five or six of them.”  This comment came in a segment with TheGrio.com’s Joy-Ann Reid wherein the two mocked conservatives’ objections to the media coverage of the Trayvon Martin case.

Michael Eric Dyson is also a racial arsonist. And did the clip actually also show Karen Finney?

Quite a trifecta.

Anytime race is used against whites the only response should be: "What do you say about black mobs attacking whites?" Ignore whatever is being said and ask the question over and over again.

What an idiot.

It is NOT 0bama’s ancestry we despise.

It’s his IDEOLOGY!

I’d be HONORED to have Allen West, Alan Keyes, Larry Elder, Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, even Herman Cain, any number of conservative descendents of African slaves as President of the United States.

What this ignorant shill doesn’t realize is, not only is 0bama NOT a descendent of African slaves and knows NOTHING about the African American experience, but as a son of a Kenyan Moslem, 0bama is very likely a descendent of African slave TRADERS!

Technically yes, but the word “mulatto” is obsolete. He is in fact “black” or African-American or whatever else you want to call him

They don't care anymore for blacks than they do for women or poor people. This is just their shtick for getting people to support them.

I would be perfectly fine with a President who is a formerly black tattooed green transsexual homosexual as long as they truly put America and personal responsibility first.

What we have now is a fool who kneels to our enemies and panders to one race with promises of socialism.

Regrettably, by today’s standards, Booker T. Washington would be variously labelled a “House Negro,” an “Oreo,” or an “Uncle Tom” given his emphasis on self-responsibility and self-improvement.

“I must be missing something, but isn’t Obama a mulatto?”

Yes, but to some people (black people) being black is how you act. As in, for instance, voting Democrat. To other (white liberals, apparently), just as for racists throughout liberty, one drop of black blood makes you black. For a lot of normal people who’s black depends upon who says they’re black and who’s treated that way, along with the age-old completely unscientific look test.

“But they are not really black”

“Oreo,” I believe, is the term. Obama qualifies, not merely by his parentage, upbringing, and education, but also because he is a blerd (black nerd). Or he would, if he were not such a leftist, didn’t radically alter his speaking style when in front of black people (seriously, listen to the infamous NAACP speech), and occasionally dittied Al Green.

What the &^%$)(* is that moron talking about?! The White House is over 200 years old why talk about slaves now? O is not of slave blood,and is a long way from the Black American slave experience. Obama was a very privileged child who happened to have an African father. I cannot see how they draw these conclusions.

BTW, black weren’t the only ones on the planet that have been slaves.
