You do know that the Kool Aid comment was created by racists right? And by continuing to use it only shows that you are in fact a racist, no surprise there of course.


I don't think I have to mention what the other astute members above me have already mentioned about the term "Kool-Aid" drinker.

But if you haven't paid any attention to their post, please look up Jim Jones. Also I believe your Dear Leader Obama's favorite Lap Dog Media News Network CNN had a special on that particular loon.

I think the "war" started with the never ending race bating and charges of racism both from the white house and the media. The charge of racism is one of the worst there is and the media has over done it to the point guys like Breitbart feel the need to respond.

There is a great article on this here:

www.weeklystandard.com...

Shirley Sherrod and the Racism Arms Race


I wrote yesterday that cries of racism without just cause and serious proof are damaging to the falsely accused, the political process, race relations, and those who suffer from actual racism. I was talking mostly about the left's cynical and frequent use of "racism" accusations to marginalize political opponents at the time, but the same applies to unfounded accusations of racism from Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart.

The solution to the left's frequent playing of the race card is not for the right to start a racism accusation arms race. We don't need more accusations flying around with flimsy evidence. We need far more consideration before flinging them, on all sides.

Forget about all the baggage Glenn Beck has. I think he's funny and entertaining, but the uncle you steered your kids away from at the family picnic.

The very thought that the White House or even any national politician is afraid of a news organization or a news commentator from any news organization; should be waving a huge flag about other issues and what are they hiding or doing.

This isn't normal behavior for any national leader regardless of how you feel about our Prez. Something is seriously wrong.

Even ATS is falling to right vs left rhetoric and garbage.
The same people control all the major media organizations, they just want you to get mad at each other now, either as a distraction or something else.

That's a great point from the Weekly Standard. But they should take their own advice and check their facts first as it pertains to the Beck thing.


There's a reason I chose to use the "Race Card" as my avatar. My point was to let people know that racism is real, but real racism is being ignored for propagandized race baiting.

I feel for this lady. And for Beck. Everyone is throwing them under the bus over NOTHING.

White Racist like the Late KKK Clan Leader Robert Byrd you mean and others like him?


What Parties do Fraud Committing Organizations Like ACCORN vote for?

What Party Does Lying Lawyers who would sue their own mothers for giving them birth vote for?

What party did criminals like Rezko, Blagovich, Ayers vote for or a part of?

What party did the Racist Organization like NAACP and NBBP vote for?

Reverse racism doesn't exist at least that is what I have seen on this site
All the organizations that exist for "equality" do so at the expense of the rights of others. Simple cause and affect. I'm sorry but this constant focus on race is just misdirection from the real issues. Why are there always shortages of the "pet" minorities in say scientific fields? Is it because the "white man" is keeping them down or is it because of a underlying problem with the minorities in question? Like a lack of interest in the fields? The only real equality is in oppression and death.

projectvxn that is right, now the real issues of race get ignored due to the messed up pc thinking.

This is not about black versus white or left versus right or liberal versus conservative or socialism or any other stupid divisive labels you want to throw around. It's about ethics and what's right.

Glen Beck SHOULD BE FIRED. And both Beck and Breitbart should be SUED for all they're worth. End of discussion.



Breitbart, Fox Criticized For Sherrod Tape Coverage

July 21, 2010 5:15 pm ET by Joe Strupp

Andrew Breitbart and Fox News are coming under criticism by journalism observers and news ethicists for posting a video clip of former Agriculture Department Director Shirley Sherrod out of context, and without seeking her comment.

Breitbert, who first posted the clip Monday at his BigGovernment.com site, has been under scrutiny after it was revealed the clip misrepresented Sherrod's message during a speech in March before a group of NAACP members.

Fox then posted the clip as well. Neither one sought comment from Sherrod prior to reporting it. She was forced to resign on Monday

Utter and total crap. Beck didn't even air the footage that night and Sharrod was fired long before O'reilly did. Why doesn't this article mention MSNBC's morning Joe airing the footage?

Answer, because its yet another political propaganda piece trying to capitalize on this story.

EDIT: Also, MM is a left wing propaganda machine started by Soros and Hillary Clinton. Its hilarious how the media completely covers this fact up and portrays them as an objective media watch dog.

ABC Skips Label for Liberal Media Matters During Shootout With 'Conservative' Andrew Breitbart


Conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart and Eric Boehlert of the liberal organization Media Matters debated each other on Wednesday's Good Morning America. But ABC only identified the ideology of the right-leaning guest. Boehlert was simply the "senior fellow with the watchdog group Media Matters for America."

You are yet another person that didnt investigate what really happened.

At the risk of repeating my previous posts, why dont you scroll back and find out what really happened.......or better yet, why dont you YOUTUBE the video of beck when he was going over this in yesterdays show....

This just proves that people like the OP and the ones who are foaming at the mouth over this, are more concerned with "getting" someone then finding out what the facts really are......

I dont mean to sound confrontational, but this really gets to me when people make wild accusations without research........

you have some egg on you........

Wow! This is almost transcendental. Years ago, the left-wingnuts that conspired to twist the press and cut-off opposing viewpoints suggested this key tactic:

If the right forces us all to either defend Wright or tear him down, no matter what we choose, we lose the game they’ve put upon us. Instead, take one of them — Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.
dailycaller.com...

Now, here we see it at work on ATS!


...
Glenn Beck is a huge racist, a massive white supremecist!
...

The Tea Party is a massive Right-wing racist organization that proclaims they are the true Americans, they represent average America. ...
...
... on the other-side we have the people who would like America to move backwards and install racism, sexism and hatred through indoctrination. ...
...
This is a war that we cannot lose, it is a war against right-wing bloggers ....


Pretty much follows the "JournoList" model of destructive engagement.

If anyone thought you were FOR honest debate on the merits of issues, now you've shown them how mistaken they were.

Say "goodbye" to your credibility.

And, it probably wouldn't hurt if you got basic facts right:

Now we have this lunatic going to the Lincoln Memorial on MLK's birthday ....


"MLK's birthday" is NOT August 28.

And, when I went to school January 15 didn't happen on August 28. Did you "change" the date to something you can "believe in?"

Since you have no respect for facts or civil discourse, there's no need to engage you on the underlying truth in politics and the media. You've summed up the "progressives'" themselves quite well:


This is what we are dealing with here, people who are either so stupid they spread their own ignorance or people who are willing to terrify Americans so they listen to them.


I am certain that your left-wingnut brethren will rush to your aid and employ the other "progressive" strategies for confront opposing opinions:
A few excerpts from JournoList journalists

Deny ignorance.

Why Was Shirley Sherrod Ousted? Article by Glenn Beck


When was the last time the NAACP didn't give someone the benefit of the doubt right away?

This much I can say, if she was simply relating an anecdotal story from 1986 to make a point about how her racial perceptions have changed, give her back her job.

Something is definitely wrong here. Yes, the Obama administration has a history of acting without all the facts:



RESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I think it's fair to say number one, that any of us would be angry. Number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home.

And they appear to have done the same thing to Shirley Sherrod that they did to that police officer.

How and why would you force the resignation of someone who is just relating a story of 24-year-old incident to make a point? How many times when a controversy comes up have we heard that someone was "misquoted" or they "misspoke" or we're told that "the only point they were simply making was that..." and then some point that bears no resemblance to the one they made; or they were just "taken out of context?"

Now here's a possible actual example of someone taken completely out of context and they immediately get rid of her.

All during the Jeremiah Wright fiasco with then-presidential candidate Barack Obama, still a member of his church, we continually heard, you're smearing the poor man with sound bites! You're taking him out of context! Until finally we discovered that the only context for Reverend Wright was anti-American racism.

Well whoever at Fox who posted the clip. And Joe and whoever else did too. They all have a responsibility. THEY FAILED.

And we don't have to take their bee-ess. No intelligent person would.

And I'm not staying in this thread. All the labels made me vomit and it stinks in here of exactly what is DESTROYING this country.

And maybe you should pay attention to what actually transpired that day instead of taking some article's word for it.

I watch GB and listen to his radio show. He never wronged or placed any judgment on her. He continued to point out that he wanted the entire context and was going to have Sherrod on his show to go over that context.

But again, truth does not matter as you will continue to spew the baseless rhetoric this WH and their Media Lap Dogs want you to spew.

But again, truth is also present when Breitbart was on CNN with John King, and there is video proof with a date/time stamp of him repeating that he was clearly trying to illustrate the blatant racism exhibited by the crowd and their cheers.

Well maybe we should all agree with you and want bigger government and more government control in our lives. After all they are honest and care about us.

Maybe we should disown Arizona for their racist agenda.

Maybe we should have more taxes!

Maybe we should be anti-american, just like you, because if we are pro American freedom and liberty we are obviously racist.


I don't know what kool aid you're drinking, but you're obviously delusional.
