After Bill O`Reilly`s crazy rant about McKinney, she gets the chance to reply.

youtu.be...

She also makes some really good points in this interview on how the US has gone downhill.

Cynthia McKinney is the most hateful witch ever to disgrace the halls of Congress. Every time I see her I have to restrain myself from smashing my computer.

ETA: I love how she sidestepped any criticism on Obama. "That's not the issue."


She never answered the RT anchor's question about who is paying her either. A lie by ommision is still a lie.

"Presidential Hopeful?" ROTFLMMFAO!!!!!

Ok, so what's the deal? I can't dig up anywhere whether or not she's running in 2012.

I can answer who pays McKinney's way - the taxpayer does. The same as we pay every other former Congress person a lifetime pension. I'm sure she can afford a plane ticket to anywhere she wants to go.
She's also one of the few members of Congress who didn't swallow the 9/11 Commission report whole without serious objections. She tried hard to press for truth from the government but to no avail.

OldCorp - You seem to have a real beef with her. She criticized both parties and urged everyone to vote independent, something I heartily agree with. It's funny how Bill O'Reilly can say whatever he wants yet God forbid McKinney says anything critical of the US.
What is she doing running around in places like Libya, Palestine, and Iran? Trying to find out the truth for herself because she knows the media isn't telling the whole story.
She's actually a very accomplished and brave person IMO.
What specifically do you object to about her? Clothing and how she says YooNighTED States notwithstanding.)

I totally agree with all of what you say.
Most of the points she made in the interview are exactly what is going on in with the US and the sooner the American people wake up to this, the better for America and also those who suffer in these... IMO... illegal wars.

Well for one, I agree that we should bring all of the troops home and spend that money taking care of Americans first. It's what she would do with the money I have a problem with. She mentioned Gary Indiana twice in that video. Gary Indiana is a sniphole that should be abandoned and used as a movie set for a futuristic apocalypse movie. There is NO industry and the infrastructure is beyond repair. she would use billions of dollars to refurbish this blight on the Hoosier landscape, and for what? Like I said, there is no way for anyone to make a living. And she would do this all over the country.

McKinney picked Gary for one reason and one reason only: It has THE largest African-American population per capita in the United States. Source

She is a racist. There, I said it. Yes, even black people can be racist. Everything to her boils down to the race card, and I for one am SICK TO DEATH of that BS. There may be a few hicks in the hills that still harbor racist attitudes against black people, but institutional racism is dead and has been for years. She even uses the Black Panther Party as security for crying out loud. Everything she wants to do is for black people and black people only. She wants to expand the welfare roles, including more benefits for those on them, instead of giving folks an incentive to get off of them.

And then we come to her going around the Muslim world bad mouthing the United States. Her unabashed hatred of the Jewish people is well known, and as evidenced by her recent tour of the Middle East that hasn't changed. She supports our enemies and those who would do us harm for no other reason than to stick it to Whitey.

Racism is the ugliest thing this world has ever seen, and I have NO tolerance for it in any way, shape, or form: even if it comes from a black woman.

And that is why I can't stand the sight of her.

Ok, listening to the video of what was stated the following can be stated:
Cynthia McKinney is a career politician, and is now an activist. Her statement about how the US is funding war after war, to make the US seem like a war monger, seems to be a bit hypocritical on her part with her participation in the agitation of the Palestinians and the Israelis. Her comments about that the Green Party is needed to be joined sounds like a call out for a special interest. Looking at the Green party, their ideas would cause more of a rift in a divided country than it already has, by redressing the very ideas and ideology that would be more towards socialism than it should, and ultimately further harm the people of the country. Make no mistake, the Green Party is heavy racist in its nature and being, that would ultimately end up discriminating against far more people and do such by pushing forth a series of laws that would in the long run, curtail the very freedoms of the country. (Think Affirmative action on steroids with a heavy amount of reparations added in. If you are a white male, well sorry you don’t count. If you are an African American woman, well the sun rises and sets on you, and that is the appearance of what their goals as stated on their website looks like.) (www.gp.org...)
A sane economy that respect our environment? Well if all of the manufacturing is moved to another country, is that not respecting our environment? And the green movement is flawed on its own, the government studies all point that out, but then again, like any good politician, they tend to cherry pick the data to find that which is the most favorable. While her view is that we do not need to be involved in Libya, however we do have treaties that we must follow, especially with NATO, and to ignore those treaties that we would have, would be far worse in the long run than what is going on right now. Do we ignore our own history and ignore treaties cause they are inconvenient or do we honor them. So far what is being shown, is that the US is taking a support role, rather than a direct role. No matter how you cut it, be it direct or indirect, the US is involved, better to be direct, than accused later on due to indirect means. She talks about the laying off of Teachers and healthcare. However, what she is not mentioning that in many of those states, they are dealing with budget shortages and deficits, trying to make ends meet, nor is she discussing about how many times there is miscommunication between both sides to the general public, the unions give their point of view, the politicians theirs, yet neither side appears to be willing to give on any point, putting both in a bad light. And every city and state, there are public hospital out there, where they take people in to treat, no matter what. So how is that denying of healthcare? Cut out the war financing, yet she fails to take into account how many of the modern comforts that we all enjoy to this very day all started due to an armed conflict, and it affects every one at every point of life, even down to the most basic of things required. (Next time you open up a can containing food, please remember that idea started due to a war and a military invention. Next time we go in the internet, well that did come from the US military.) So much in intertwined with the military, it is hard to find out what is and is not been from such.
Now looking at the clip that was played, Bill stated that they can not confirm that she is being paid to say bad things about the US. Ultimately, is it correct that Cynthia McKinney has no love or respect for her country, that she has to go outside of the US to speak? And in Muslim countries, where they do not respect women and often treat them as second class citizens? Her motives are very much questionable as to why she is doing that, and that ultimately has to be asked, why? She brings up Gary Indiana, however she fails to mention as to why this town tanked. (Gary Indiana was a city that was built up by the steel industry, the company tanked, and took the town with it. www.forbidden-places.net...)
She is mistaken, government is not responsible for keeping people employed or dictating to business, that is socialism, not a republic or democracy.
She avoids the question as to who is paying for her to travel to these different countries. That is not the issue, traveling to different countries, and speaking out, that is not an issue, but the question is fair and should be asked and answered, who is paying for this and what is their purpose behind such. Ironic how she is stating Russia Today, a news outlet that is highly bias against the US.
She talks about people being shot, yet fails to mention as to why such is occurring. Pretty much a political spin.

Why would you make all sorts of unprovable generalizations about the Green Party and then give us a link so we can see how much stuff you just made up? Couldn't you at least have found some obligatory biased link to "prove" your points?

Anyway, this is one of their 10 goals:

Decentralization:
"Centralization of wealth and power contributes to social and economic injustice, environmental destruction, and militarization. Therefore, we support a restructuring of social, political and economic institutions away from a system which is controlled by and mostly benefits the powerful few, to a democratic, less bureaucratic system. Decision-making should, as much as possible, remain at the individual and local level, while assuring that civil rights are protected for all citizens."

Between that and their stance on tearing down the military industrial complex makes me wonder if true Americans like Ron Paul might fit in better with these guys rather than the Republicans.

Well said. She is right up there with Farrakhan and David Duke. While I respect her right to her opinion, I do not have to agree with it. She is a flat out racist ad makes no apologies for it and yet calls others on I all the time. The lack of people calling her out on I is just political correctness gone amok. Political correctness will be the death of the US.

Personally, I would charge her, amongst others with aiding and abetting.

Right up there with David Duke? So she's an equivalent of somebody in a secret society known for violent hangings, rapes, and murders of another ethnicity?

Ok... I get how you guys really want her to be racist that way you can dismiss her easily since nobody has to listen to a racist, right? But I still can't find anywhere how she's racist. Please, show us how she's racist like David Duke.

If you feel like bringing up her support of minority demographics that are underrepresented, don't. That's not racism.

Dude (or dudette) check out her Wiki page from top to bottom, and THEN tell me she's not a racist. She's hip deep in bed with the Black Panthers; that says WORLDS about her character, or more specifically, her LACK of character.

Oddly, I agree with many of her political positions; it's her attitude and racism that makes me want to


She comes by it honestly though: Her old man was just as bad.

I am having a hard time finding two simple things on that wiki page.
Her blatant racism and her knee deep relationship with the Black Panthers.

Leaves me to wonder what you actually know about the Black Panthers but I am sure that is for another time. I read the entire page. You said it was brimming with racism. Maybe you can point it out?

Her connection to the New Black Panthers (please don't confuse them with the real Black Panthers) has always confused me. She hired them and never really spoke about them. I can only think it's because they do hold the original 10 tenants of the Black Panthers which does follow an anti-war and anti-capitalist stance... perhaps she simply felt they were the only ones she could trust.

Look at Woodstock and The Rolling Stones. They used The Hells Angels for security but that band and that concert are obviously not racist like the MC.

The website that is provided on the green party, clearly states their goals, in black and white as to what they are striving for. This is not generalization as would be stated but facts, coming straight from their own mouths. But if more proof is insisted, then here goes:
From their own web site, they are willing to accept
“In response, Greens will strengthen citizens’ influence over the broadcast media, break up the dominant media conglomerates and boost the number of community and non-profit news outlets, all to fortify the media’s crucial watchdog function and to help create a more diverse and lively exchange of ideas in America.”
That sounds like censorship to me, and telling the general public what it can and can not report or do. There is nothing to stop a person from starting their own newspaper, or media company. Like any business, it is in the business to make money, so what happens if it tanks? Does this mean another bail out or funding for a government controlled and sponsored program, or does the government go in and dictate to the different companies what it can and can not print?
“We seek the permanent repeal of the veto power enjoyed by the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council. “ If ever there was a horrible idea, that is one of the most out there. The veto power that the 5 permanent members of the UN Security council that has held has prevented a lot more conflicts that could have been going on all along.
“Our government should establish a policy to abolish nuclear weapons. It should set the conditions and schedule for fulfilling that goal…” Love that idea, don’t you? A world without nuclear weapons, but there is one small slight snag in that aspect, how do you do it? After all if you consider that the nuclear missiles are in short a bullet, you can remove the casing, you can dismantle the actual weapon, but what do you do with the nuclear material left over? That stuff is so toxic, this is one of the few times I am going to say: Not in my back yard. Are you willing to risk your life and that of your family over that idea?
“Puerto Rican Independence” Funny the people of Puerto Rico don’t seem to want Independence, after all they have been asked a lot in a lawful vote and every time the people have resounded that they want to remain a territory. Should we go against the will of the people?
But lets get to the political side of the Green parties basis:
“We call for equal representation of women in Congress instead of the current 15% in 2010.” I have yet to see where a woman can not run for congress, is it to be determined that my vote or anyone else’s vote would not count if it was up between a woman or a man? Is it our fault that people vote for the candidate of their choice and if it is not a woman, then how do they rectify that?
“The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission should actively investigate and prosecute sexual harassment complaints. Women who file complaints must not be persecuted and should be protected under federal and state law. We must enshrine in law the basic principle that women have the same rights as men, and promote gender equality and fairness in the work force to ensure that women receive equal pay for jobs of equal worth. “ And how does one prove if this goes through one way or the other, or is it to be like the charge of rape?
“Language is often used as a weapon by those with power, and women have traditionally borne the brunt of inflicted injuries. Freedom of speech is vital to democracy. However, we believe that this freedom should not be used to perpetuate oppression and abuse. “ That is called censorship plain and simple. Do we now restrict a persons right to the freedom of speech cause it may offend or be considered abusive towards women?
“The community of people of African ancestry whose family members were held in chattel slavery in what is now the United States of America have legitimate claims to reparations including monetary compensation for centuries of human rights violations, including the Transatlantic slave trade now recognized by the United Nations as a 'crime against humanity'. As our Nation has done in the past with respect to the Choctaw, the Lakota, the Lambuth, and more recently for Japanese Americans and the European Jewish community, Reparations are now due to address the debt still owed to descendants of enslaved Africa We commit to full and complete reparations to the African community of this nation for the past four hundred plus years of genocide, slavery, land-loss, destruction of original identity and the stark disparities which haunt the present evidenced in unemployment statistics, substandard and inadequate education, higher levels of mortality including infant and maternal mortality and the practice of mass incarceration. We recognize that reparations are a debt (not charity) that is owed by our own and other nations and by the corporate institutions chartered under our laws to a collective of people. We believe that the leadership on the question of what our nation owes to this process of right ought to come from the African American community, whose right to self-determination and autonomy to chart the path to healing we fully recognize. “ That in the long run is going to pretty much bring back discrimination on a personal level the likes of which will make the 60’s seem like a walk in the park. No one person in the African American community is entitled to one red cent. They have no right to any money or funds. It is a can of worms that once it is open then the argument can be made that: My ancestors were harmed during the civil war, thus leading to my being right now so give me money. And that is just the beginning, where anyone can make a claim and we the people would have to pay. Too many people live out of the past and hold out their hands, well guess what, time to live in the present. Their descendents and children, grandchildren all have opportunities to do something with their lives, time they started to recognize that and take the means to do such, rather than live with my ancestors were slaves. Are they also going to go after the Africans who sold their ancestors to the Europeans?

So there you go, in the words of the Green party, a party that Cynthia McKinney represents. This was not generalizations, but facts as they stated such. Some good ideas, but rotten structure.
