Check out the video below where Contessa Brewer of MSNBC tries to imply, a black man (which they purposefully crop out) is really a white person.
A man at a pro-health care reform rallywore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip.there are questions about whether this has racial overtones.white people showing up with guns.
Update: MSNBC is trying to weasel out of this by saying they were speaking generally. Of course they have no evidence to back up their claim, and puprosefully cropped the video to fit their narrative. Im with Ed Morrissey:
We complain about Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, but they engage in opinion journalism, so we expect to get wild arguments and leg tingles. What they don’t do is deliberately distort source material in a manner this blatantly dishonest in order to artificially inflame racial tensions. Opinion journalism is legitimate; this is nothing but propaganda.
MS-NBC should fire everyone involved in this deception, in front of the camera and behind it. It has a decision to make as to whether it is a news and opinion channel, or a propaganda outlet for the Left. There is a difference, and this segment crossed it.
On behalf of the nearly half million members of Americans for Limited Government — and tens of millions of other equally appalled Americans of all races nationwide — I hereby demand the immediate termination of Contessa Brewer, Toure, Dylan Ratigan and any and all others involved in any way with the fraudulent “news” that ran in the 10:45AM segment of your August 18 broadcast.
You network has besmirched the dignity and honor of American people. You have endangered the life of the President of the United States. You have purposely fanned racial tensions. And you have deliberately lied to your own audience.
