Obama’s Poll Numbers Down, Imaginary Racism Up

It’s a hot topic this week. What we have been seeing with ThinkProgress.org editing a video for propaganda purposes and then with Shirley Sherrod admitting to an overt act of racism, is a massive playing of the race card by the left. Only this time, the race card is blowing up right in their faces, and they know it. Thus, they go on the offensive and claim that only Conservatives can be racist but they immediately clam up or go into major spin mode when asked to explain the comments of people like King Shabazz and Shirley Sherrod.

And of course, no one on the left will even consider commenting on the Justice Department’s directive not to pursue any case where the victim was white and the perpetrator black.

Ann Coulter has a nice take on this:

This is what “racism” has come to in America. Democrats are in trouble, so they say “let’s call conservatives racists.” We always knew it, but the Journolist postings gave us the smoking gun.

This explains why we’ve heard so much about Tea Partiers being “racists” lately.

But despite a frantic search, the media have been unable to produce any actual evidence of racism at the Tea Parties. Even the trace elements are either frauds or utterly trivial.

Whereas bloggers like me have been posting hard evidence about racism in other organizations or that alleged Tea Party racism turns out to be fabricated, we have yet to find one person or group that has any hard evidence of a racist Tea Party.

Rememeber when Andrew Breitbart offered $100,000 to anyone who could produce an audio or video tape showing that some Tea Partier had called Rep. John Lewis a certain racial epithtet (beginning with the letter “N”) at least one time, nevermind the 15 times that the news media charged? That reward still remains unclaimed. Why? Because the incident never happened.

Given the number of video cameras, cell phones and other recording devices that were present, there is no way someone could have yelled that word fifteen times and it never got recorded.

More:

And now this week, with the NAACP accusing the Tea Partiers of harboring racists, and conservatives demanding proof, the George Soros-backed Center for American Progress ran a 45-second video allegedly showing racism at the Tea Parties.

One of the videos shows an obvious liberal plant announcing, “I’m a proud racist!” Apparently this was their best shot, because they had to work this video into the montage twice, amid utterly innocuous posters, for example, saying, “God bless Glenn Beck.” So I guess they didn’t have anything better.

Here’s the part Soros’ people didn’t show you: In the fuller video shown on the Glenn Beck show, the Tea Partiers surrounded the (liberal plant) racist, jeering at him, telling him he’s not one of them and to go home. In a spectacularly evil fraud, all that was edited out.

I have that very video posted on this blog.

The Vast Left-Wing Media Conspiracy

A wonderful essay from Fred Barnes at the Wall Street Journal regarding the expose of liberal journalists on JournoList who worked to make sure that certain negative stories about Barack Obama got covered up. Before I get to the meat of the article, I have to relay one particular item that seems relevent due to the recent stories about racism within the NAACP and the fact that ThinkProgress.org found it necessary to edit a six minute video down to a few seconds in order to produce a piece of propaganda that had been intended to make the Tea Party look racist.

Here is what Fred wrote:

What was particularly pathetic about the scheme to smear Mr. Obama’s critics was labeling them as racists. The accusation has been made so frequently in recent years, without evidence to back it up, that it has little effect. It’s now the last refuge of liberal scoundrels.

Italic emphasis mine. Those two lines show why the Tea Party has been under attack. It is not because they are racist. It is because their message of lower taxes, reducing wasteful government spending and getting government out of our private lives is resonating among mainstream America. The progressive left finds this to be a huge threat and therefore must resort of making false accusations in an attempt to discredit the Tea Partiers.

Now, about that JournoList. Here is what Fred wrote:

JournoList contributors discussed strategies to aid Mr. Obama by deflecting the [Reverend Wright] controversy. They went public with a letter criticizing an ABC interview of Mr. Obama that dwelled on his association with Mr. Wright. Then, Spencer Ackerman of The Washington Independent proposed attacking Mr. Obama’s critics as racists. He wrote:

“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. . . . This makes them ‘sputter’ with rage, which in turn leads to overreaction and self-destruction.”

No one on JournoList endorsed the Ackerman plan. But rather than object on ethical grounds, they voiced concern that the strategy would fail or possibly backfire.

And this:

I think JournoList is—or was—fundamentally different, and not simply because one of its members proposed to make palpably false accusations. As best I can tell, those involved in JournoList considered themselves part of a team. And their goal was to make sure the team won. In 2008, this was Mr. Obama’s team. More recently, the goal seems to have been to defeat the conservative team.

Until JournoList came along, liberal journalists were rarely part of a team. Neither are conservative journalists today, so far as I know. If there’s a team, no one has asked me to join.

Ethics in journalism from outlets like the Washington Post or New York Times? Not from what I have seen.

Thank God we have an Internet and alternative means of getting good, accurate information that the major media outlets cannot censor or cover up.

Think Progress Used A Heavily Edited Video To ‘Prove’ Tea Party Is Racist

But they didn’t show the full video nor did they mention that the subject of the video was a Democrat plant sent in to stir up controversy. That man was a well-documented Tea Party crasher.

In the Think Progress version of the clip, you only see one or two seconds of this man claiming that he is a white racist. This is due to the editing that Think Progress did to reduce the six-minute clip down to only those parts they could use as propaganda. In other words, Think Progress is deliberately misleading their viewership.

Here is the full video and proof that the Tea Party is not tolerent of racists in their midst:

Also note that Think Progress used another video to claim Tea Party racism but retracted it when it was learned that the video footage they were using was from 2006, three years before the Tea Party revolution began.

Any members or supporters of Think Progress are welcome to address this post and give their side of the story.

Racism Within The NAACP

The NAACP really needs to clean up its own ranks before calling other organizations racist, exspecially when there is no evidence of racism in those other organizations (like the Tea Party) but their is solid evidence of racism within the NAACP.

Note the following video in which USDA official Shirley Sherrod admits to acting on her own racist beliefs and feelings when dealing with a white farmer. Especially note how other members of the NAACP either approve of her action or conspicuously fail to call her out for it.

Actions speak louder than words.

With Mid-Term Disaster Looming, Dems Backtrack On ‘Racist Tea-Party’ Rhetoric

It appears that the Dems are beginning to understand exactly what is going to happen to their party come November. Why else would Vice President Joe Biden declare that the Tea Parties were “not racist” when that has been the mantra of the Dems and their media allies for over a year?

From the Washington Times:

“Very conservative, very different views on government and a whole lot of things,” Biden said during an interview broadcast Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “But it is not a racist organization.”

President Barack Obama doesn’t think so, either, Biden said.

Looks like panic mode has been achieved.

Racially Motivated Blacks Assault White Student

So, who here still thinks that blacks cannot be racist?

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A Belleville (Illinois) West High School student was beaten aboard a bus on the way to school Monday, and a police spokesman said the beating could be racially motivated.

The 17-year-old victim was white and the teen assailants were black. Police released a video of the beating, which shows the victim being punched repeatedly while other students on the bus gather to watch, some cheering. It doesn’t appear that the victim did anything to provoke an attack and tried only to defend himself. Police said it all unfolded in a five-minute span.

The victim was trying to find a seat and was told by two students he could not sit next to them, police said. When he did sit down, one teen tried to push him out of his seat then began grabbing the victim’s neck and punching him in the face.

The victim eventually returned to his seat, but another student began taunting him a few minutes later. The victim was then struck in the face.

“In my estimation, it’s racially motivated,” said Capt. Don Sax of the Belleville Police Department. He said one reason he had formed this opinion was that many of the students, most of whom were black, yelled their support for the beating.

“There was absolutely no justification for the beating either time,” Sax said.

Of course, Big Media will not report this because it was a white victim with black attackers rather than a black victim with white attackers. But this is one of the reasons why we have an Internet and a blogosphere.
