Watch this segment from Contessa Brewer's show and last night's "Hardball. All day yesterday on MSNBC they showed the footage of the black man with an AR15, but they zoomed in and cropped so tat you cant tell hes black. They then go on to demonize the protesters as racists.

This is one of the more blatant and disturbing examples of our media purposely misleading people. The news is starting to remind me of the media from the movie "The Running Man".

Running Man

What a great movie. Its a bit futuristic though, and if you think about it, we might end up having game shows just like it.

We already glorify men beating the living daylights out of each other. Kind of like gladiators, but its not Roman times.

Next thing you know, we will be putting death row inmates in a life or death game show. Hmm...

I was referring more to the aspect of the movie where the edit news footage to fit their propaganda. There is a scene were they edit footage of a military operation to make Arnold the bad guy.

This is about MSNBC, not Fox. Although there were no edited clips in that montage that were used to attack Americans as racist. I've never seen anything quite like this, where the media edited out the skin color of someone, in order to make a false argument that people brought guns because the president is black.

i wouldn't accuse you of spin or dis-info, i assume you must have put up the wrong clip or something because nobody mentioned racism on that video. didn't even hint at it from what i saw.

new video, time stamp, quote, anything at all to back up your statement would be appreciated.

It's not editing, it's lying. The left WANTS to make this about skin colour.

They're doing it by stating that scocialism is the new "n" word.
Obama tried doing it during the campaign.
Against an Obama policy? Then you are a racist.

This is a disgusting agenda. Dr. MLK is rolling in his grave right now.

Maybe not in this clip, but thats been the mantra on Hardball and just about every other network for the last week. The segment just before this one was all about Chris's theory that this is all motivated by race.

Why do you think they edited that footage?

We should have perm. stick ups in the media forum. One for each of the MSM 'news' (agenda) outlets. CBS (See BS), NBC, ABC, FOX, CNN ... and in each of the stickups we could report as we find things like this.


Report when you find these things to each of the threads ...
It would be GRAND!
(and given the amount of agenda flowing from those sources, we'd all be very busy little bees, I'm sure!)

chris matthews is just a hackjob and will do anything to push his 'thrill up my leg' agenda. If msnbc were a legitimate news source, I'd have had to suggest that this guy needed to be let go to work with jr at airhead america, but they aren't legitimate even in the slightest sense.

care to explain? i don't see how you can stand by your OP knowing there is no attempt to demonise anyone as rasist in the segment you suggested we watch.

who's misleading who here?

I'm talking about this episode of Hardball from last night. Read what I said and not just what you want to see. I clearly said " All day yesterday on MSNBC" and "On Hardball". If this clip doesn't encompass the exact part I'm talking about, than I'm sorry. They did go on to accuse these people of being racists. I cant beleive how you're playing dumb here.

Again, why do you think they edited the clip so that you couldn't see the skin color of the man holding the rile?

Matthews asks the first man right at the beginning of the video:

"What do you think was their motivation?"

The man he asks says:

I really, Chris, think that their motivation was that they know that President Obama is very anti-gun rights and they're raising the 'in your face kind of things' saying "It's my right and I can do it" but I don't think it really sells well and I don't think it gets much converts to our cause."

Then Matthews says:

"You really believe that? You're not just BS'ng me here? You REALLY believe this is about gun rights and his position on gun rights even though we've had democratic presidents for years that take pretty much the same position that he's taken on gun rights and no one has shown up at events with guns. Ever."

Then the man answers:

Well I don't think they've been quite as fro... there's no doubt that Obama's the most anti-gun rights President in the United States based on his past performance, his actions, his voting records, and the statements that he's made.

Then Matthew says:

"And Ok I'm gonna go I don't agree with you right ok but you're right there ok but I think there's a more deep seeded reason here. I think it has to deal with peoples real ideologies here."

He said this all fast while trying to get what he was thinking out. Nothing demonizing about it.

However, what do you think he meant by "Deep seeded reason" and "real ideologies"?

What else could it be? Assassination attempts would be a what of the why. Why do they have "Deep seeded reason" and "real ideologies"? Because _________. What would that lead to? Assassination attempts.

I can't think of anything else he could have meant other than racist.

The clip does make me sick, though. The pro-gun guy is being absolutely reasonable, brings up that they were doing everything legally, and the anti-gun guy shakes his head in disgust. At what? He starts doing it when he mentions legal.

That's a problem. But, that's not the issue.

Maybe your having a hard time finding clips and or people on here that seen it because nobody is watching it. just a thought.

What is the ratings of Mr. Leg quiver anyways, maybe 122 people watching. Less than 1% would be on here or tape it.
I guess that would just leave you.

I don't doubt if they turned the whole thing around on race. It is all I hear all day long anymore. Getting tired of being found guilty for something I did not do.

I did see however an agenda taking place that showed itself in the last 30 seconds or so. That would be Reagans flip flop.

Could you imagine the outrage if a commentator asked a black man if the reason he hated Bush was because he was white?

Just a thought. . .

Seeing that footage of the black guy with the AR-15 edited to hide his skin color, I knew msnbc was gonna utilize it to their and obama's benefit by playing the racism card. It is just amazing the gall these biased asshats have.
