From Its Lofty Perch, Smug, Intolerant MSM Roots for New American Civil War
Diane Sawyer is a racist. Matt Lauer is a racist. Charlie Gibson is a racist. Wolf Blitzer is a racist. Katie Couric is a racist. Kiran Chetry is a racist. Chris Matthews is a racist. Ed Schultz is a racist. Keith Olbermann is a racist. Gary Tuchman is a racist. Elizabeth Vargas is a racist. Sharyl Attkisson is a racist. Anderson Cooper is a racist. George Stephanopoulos is a racist. David Gregory is a racist. Chuck Todd is a racist. Rick Sanchez is a racist. Melissa Stark is a racist, and for those of you whom I left out (personnel and outlets), it's just due to space.
Not only that, but they want racial violence. It'll be a great story, it'll help their chosen political party, and maybe even discredit some conservative talkers.
Now, I'm sure the aforementioned big heads may be all offended. Tough.
How does it feel?
Almost every broadcast and cable news entity repeats the action line that the Tea Party is racist. They've done so without any hard evidence, in fact they had to rely on Think Progress to Photoshop racist signs and the failed Crash The Tea Party losers to smear a whole group of Americans as evil haters. With the looming Glenn Beck "Restoring Honor" rally at the Lincoln Memorial, the professional news media is doing what it does best: select and disseminate the news they agree with and thus to us it to tarnish those they don't.
And all it takes are willing dupes....
Tea Party Spells KKK, Rights Leader Says
The Rev. Walter Fauntroy, the non-voting delegate who represented the District of Columbia from 1971 to 1991, called on African-Americans to organize a "new coalition of conscience" to rebut the rally scheduled for Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial featuring Fox News pundit Glenn Beck and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
"We are going to take on the barbarism of war, the decadence of racism, and the scourge of poverty, that the Ku Klux -- I meant to say the Tea Party," Fauntroy told a news conference today at the National Press Club. "You all forgive me, but I --- you have to use them interchangeably."
By invoking the Ku Klux Klan, Rev. Fauntroy once again parroted the notion that Glenn Beck/Tea Party supporters are racist, and he did so at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. He obviously knew by using such language, the media would continue its symbiotic relationship with race-baiters and run with it.
Curiously, three weeks ago prominent black conservatives (some aligned with the Tea Party Express) came together for a press conference at... the National Press Club! Much of the major news media was in attendance as black conservatives denounced the cavalier use of the race card by the NAACP.

There were also eyewitness accounts of laughter by media members at the conclusion of the presser.
That press conference lasted close to two hours yet only one sentence by Tea Party Express activist Selena Owens was all that made the airwaves. Six seconds out of 111 minutes. One condescending column ran on Salon.com and CNN's Shannon Travis wrote a piece online for which the comments were disabled after a few hours because his readers were becoming a tad intolerant; dare I say racist...?
But Fauntroy uses inflammatory language and ABC News treats this as breaking news.
While other Tea Party groups are receiving death threats and race-baiters are getting more attention that they deserve, the media elite are playing a very dangerous game just to further a political agenda. While they sit back in their make-up chairs, hoping for violent footage to codify their assertions of conservative racism, real people are at risk. Emotions are being ratcheted up, verbiage is becoming confrontational, and the media cowards who already have their "conservative/Glenn Beck/Tea Party goers are extreme, violence-prone Klan members" narrative in place will sit back in air-conditioned studios hoping for bloody b-roll.
The left and their media are desperate. With only two major events left before the midterm elections, they need to paint conservatives with a broad, racist brush to salvage the Democrat majority, and if there is collateral damage, so be it. The media royalty will act all shocked on-air while high-fiving and fist-bumping off.
It must be nice to think you can look down on millions of Americans you believe you can manipulate and if any ugliness happens at the Beck or 9/12 events, they will look the other way, devoid of conscience.
You know, like the Klan.
