MSNBC's Chris Hayes Use 'KKK' Image for Cruz, Paul, Rubio

Once again instead of dialog, discussion and common ground MSNBC attempts to widen the divide using rhetoric and imagery. In this case through the subtle (or blatant) attempts to link Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio to the Ku Flux Klan. I'll go out on a limb here and say this was deliberate though Breitbart asks it as a question.



Did MSNBC's Chris Hayes Use 'KKK' Image for Cruz, Paul, Rubio?


Chris Hayes, host of MSNBC's All In, has a favorite tactic--though not an original one: connecting today's Republicans with the racist Democrats of the old South. In June, he rewrote history by casting George Wallace as a Republican--an error for which, to his credit, he later apologized. On Wednesday, he appeared to use a more subtle tactic to connect the Tea Party's Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio to the Ku Klux Klan.

In a segment on possible Tea Party contenders for the Republican Party's nomination in the 2016 presidential race, Hayes used a graphic (above) that portrayed Cruz, Paul, and Rubio as kings in a deck of cards--and that, rather conveniently, spelled out the initials "K K K." (Hayes did not say the word "kings" during the segment.)


Anyone associated with the Tea Party has also recently been called:

    Anarchist
    Arsonist
    Hater
    Racist
    Terrorist
    Traitor
    Taliban

The list goes on and on with MSNBC leading the fight to divide America. Don't let them do it. If that's not possible then don't stoop to their level. Discussion and information not division and propaganda.

I can't figure out what is worse, MSNBC labeling the opposition with hateful labels, using emotion, and feel good rhetoric in spite of the facts or Foxnews making up stories or embellishing small details into a much bigger issue. Both news outlets need to be taken off of the air for doing a large disservice to the American public.

It looks and sounds as if the liberal left is becoming desperate and worrysome. The last I checked, the KKK wasn't being led by a couple of hispanic guys and a college educated Kentucky man. How rediculous!

What hope is here for Americans when you find out that these are the sort of shows they tune into night after night?

These shows imo have a worse effect on Americans that church does!

Or was it an attempt to legitimatize Rubio and Cruz, by associating them with Paul? There is no left/right---both parties are corrupt and work together. Neither Rubio or Cruz (nor Jindal) are natural-born citizens! I trust NO media outlet...

MSNBC is losing it all, Obama's credibility is melting away before their eyes and all their Progressive Leaders in the Senate that are running for reelection are now saying obamacare needs to be delayed.
They have to attack to keep the few loyal watchers they have left.
So they:

Fox News is the 'Controlled Opposition' They are there to feed propaganda just as the rest of the MSM is.

You might want to look at my old comment Let's see who is actually involved in our propaganda... ERRRrrr excuse me "News"

The high points are the relationship between Obama's Jobs Czar, GE CEO Jeff Immelt and JP Morgan. [ JP Morgan: Our next big media player? ]

GE is now co-owner of Comcast Corporation that owns MSNBC. And these goodies from the list of top officers:

...Before joining Comcast, Mr. Burke served with The Walt Disney Company as President of ABC Broadcasting.... Mr. Burke serves on the Board of Directors for Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.

Jeff Shell serves as President of Comcast Programming Group for Comcast Corporation...

Prior to joining Comcast, Mr. Shell was CEO of Gemstar TV Guide International where he successfully navigated Gemstar through a number of legal and operational challenges. Before joining Gemstar, Shell held a number of positions within News Corporation including President of the FOX Cable Networks Group, where he oversaw the operations of FOX’s entertainment and sports cable programming businesses including FOX Sports Net, FX and the National Geographic Channel. Shell also worked in the Strategic Planning Group at the Walt Disney Company and at Salomon Brothers Inc....

...Michael J. Angelakis serves as Chief Financial Officer for Comcast Corporation...

Prior to joining Comcast in 2007, Mr. Angelakis served as Managing Director and as a member of the Management and Investment Committees of Providence Equity Partners, one of the leading private equity firms investing in communications and media companies around the world. Before joining Providence Equity Partners in 1999, Mr. Angelakis was President and Chief Executive Officer of State Cable TV Corporation and Aurora Telecommunications, LLC. He also served as Vice President at Manufacturers Hanover Trust Company in New York, where he oversaw one of the bank’s media and communications portfolios. Additionally, Mr. Angelakis spent several years in London developing Manufacturers Hanover’s acquisition finance and merchant banking activities throughout Western Europe....

LOL, there's no way to win this one. If he had put them all as Queens, you would have said he was implying they were all homosexual drag queens. If he had put them all as Jacks, you would have said he was implying they were all "jack-asses". What card wouldn't have made you suspicious?

So they:



This proves we get two totally different spins of news in the USA.
Because mines telling me the Republicans in the House need to put their head
way down and kiss their A** goodbye in the 2014 elections.
I guess we'll find out whose right soon enough.

That's part of it probably but as Krazysh0t said in his post above fox news is as bad. Beyond any election issues, the plainly visible attempts to divide the American people by the MSM is more distressing. The fact that it seems to have been so successful is practically demoralizing.

Guohua are you back from your travels?

What is even more hysterical is when I moved to the South from Boston two guys 'educated' me on the 'true history of the KKK'. One was Black (who did most of the talking) and they other, his KKK pal was white. Hearing the other side was a real eye opener.

One of my neighbors, born ~ 1900 had a lot of research (first hand stories) on the Civil War and aftermath for the local area. I kick myself for not taking the time to tape record his information before he died.

Remember it is the WINNER who writes history, and that was the northern Carpet baggers. The KKK were vigilantes, southern men trying to protect the neighboring women folk whose men had died from rape and worse. According to the black, this included black women.

I imagine the truth is somewhere in between.

I guess the point is the unrelenting drive of propaganda from the MSM. Newsbusters.com (an admittedly right-wing site) has no fewer than eight stories calling out MSNBC on there "slanted news."

I don't have a link pointing out how many slanted news stories fox has put out in the last day or so but I'd hazard a guess it's a substantial number as well.

MSM is working with sheer volume now.

I'm having a little trouble understanding what you mean by this, perhaps I'm not fully awake.

Could you elaborate?

Obviously, there's a message, in there, that you're trying to communicate to all of us, since you felt the need to share it.

I wouldn't want that to get lost in the translation.

That's funny most of those terms were used by Conservative propagandists to describe the President...


And even more funny is NO ONE ever gets the term correct. It is "The Third Way"

The Democratic Strategist:


Obama's "Third Way" At The New Republic yesterday, Franklin Foer and Noam Scheiber undertook the latest effort to define "Obamaism," and concluded that the president represents a sort of hybrid liberalism that reflects the market-friendly attitude of Bill Clinton's New Democrats tempered by a more traditional commitment to equality...
www.thedemocraticstrategist.org...



In 1998, President Bill Clinton announced: “We have moved past the sterile debate between those who say Government is the problem and those who say Government is the solution. My fellow Americans, we have found a Third Way.”[1]
link


Anthony Giddens was head of the Fabian founded London School of Economics. He says:

... I wasn’t by any means the first to use the term “third way” itself, which crops up recurrently in the history of political thought – used most often by authors on the left but also occasionally by those on the right. The phrase was resurrected by the Swedish Social Democrats in the late 1980s, but its return to popularity came mainly from its adoption at roughly the same time by Bill Clinton and the thinktank to which he was closely connected, the Democratic Leadership Council. The “third way” was self-consciously associated with the invention of the term the “New Democrats” in the US – and later with “New Labour” in Britain under the leadership of Tony Blair. I wrote the book initially in part as a result of taking part in dialogues which Bill and Hillary Clinton had established with Tony Blair in 1997 ...
www.social-europe.eu...

Bill Clinton came to speak at LSE as part of the Global Dimensions Programme on December 13th 2001.



CLINTON: Thank you very much...

Tony, my old friend, it is true that I came to LSE when I was a student, but I have to acknowledge I never came here for anything remotely approaching an academic purpose. (laughter) Perhaps I will remedy that somewhat tonight. I want to thank Tony Giddens for making Tony Blair and me look good (laughter) and for the words and ideas that did so much to give life to the Third Way movement, for the constant encouragement to move beyond the false choices of the past and look at our world and our future possibilities in entirely new ways.


The Third Way and Fascism

As a friend said, because of WWII 'Fascism' got a bad rep so instead the term used is "Third Way"
Paper (you have to buy full paper)

Italian Fascism and the Aesthetics of the 'Third Way'

...While scholars of fascism continue to debate whether this 'revolution' was conservative or radical in its aims, most aree on the centrality of the catagory of 'spirituality' to any definition of fascism as a 'third way'distinct from liberalism and Marxism...

For European intellectuals who embraced technological progress and yet had anxieties regarding the effects of taylorist visions of efficiency and productivity on the individual, the search for a political and economic 'third way'...
www.jstor.org...




Just as progressives were generally enthusiastic about socialist movements in the Soviet Union and Europe, they were also overwhelmingly supportive of the fascist movements in Italy and Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. “In many respects,” writes journalist Jonah Goldberg, “the founding fathers of modern liberalism, the men and women who laid the intellectual groundwork of the New Deal and the welfare state, thought that fascism sounded like ... a worthwhile 'experiment'”:...

According to Goldberg, progressives' affinity for fascism was quite understandable because, contrary to popular misconception: “[F]ascism, properly understood, is not a phenomenon of the right at all. Instead, it is, and always has been, a phenomenon of the left.”

To clarify this point, a working definition of fascism is in order. A comprehensive discussion of fascism's tenets and variations can be located here, but for the purpose of this discussion, fascism can be distilled down to this: It is a totalitarian movement that empowers an omnipotent government to control every nook and cranny of political, economic, social, and private life – generally in the name of “the public good.”...

Because progressivism embraces the ideal of nationalism and touts the so-called “Third Way” between capitalism and communism, its pedigree is closer to fascism than to communism. Progressivism and fascism share the totalitarian belief that with the proper amount of tinkering, social engineers will be able to realize the utopian dream of establishing a nation where perfect equality reigns. This mindset accounts for the support that the early progressives gave to eugenics, whose ultimate aim was the creation of a pure race, a “New Man”...

Corporatism and the Ghost of the Third Way

As the 19th century drew to a close, his Holiness Pope Leo XII grieved at the twin evils of liberalism and socialism, which he foresaw imperiling the peace of the coming century. His solution was the 1891 encyclical Rerum Novarum...

These rules describe an economic model that soon gained wide acceptance as a Third Way:

...Corporatism is a body of normative economics promoted by the Roman Catholic Church from the late 19th century through the mid 20th century as a Third Way, in overt opposition to Protestant liberalism and atheist socialism.4 In truth, much of the model predates Leo’s encyclical, and is really due to 19th century academics disenchanted with liberalism and fearful of socialism – anti-Cartesian
philosophers romanticizing medieval Europe’s feudal guilds. However, the church’s explicit endorsement surely moved corporatism from seminar rooms to presidential palaces. Sermons from Catholic pulpits throughout Europe legitimized variants of corporatism in Fascist Italy.....


Aren't you glad you brought that subject up?
