Black people can also be frightened if their only news source is the fear media.

Do you support turning traditional FM NPR radio frequencies (88.5 - 92.9 )( With excellent journalist ) over to Right wing fundamentalist Christian miniseries for evangelizing and propaganda ?

How about the Texas school books being filtered for right wing propaganda? Should public school books be based on facts and science and avoid religion or should a Theocracy began here?

Lib,

"Black people can also be frightened if their only news source is the fear media."

Did this man look afraid? Do you know where he gets his news? Let me get this straight, the entire tea party movement is a result of "fear media" whatever that is. Do you believe one TRILLION dollars a year in interest alone within 10 years is completely irrelevant? Do you think a deficit (not debt) that exceeds the entire GDP is no cause at all for alarm? These are CBO numbers not "fear media". Is that the best you can do?

As to the rest of your post I'm not going to dignify you bigoted hate by answering your stupid questions.

H.D- I have to agree with you. The reporter also seems racist along with POV's comment.
Again it shows the Left's inability to deal with individuality. Both the reporter and POV appear to believe the Black man is not capable of independent thought. They could not be more wrong.

Now you are starting to focus on real problems and not silliness like Obama looks like Mussolini, he a socialist, Marxism, Muslim, he hate America, garbage and all of the other silly stuff Rush and the other hate and fear mongers use.

The country did and still has serious economic problems tens of millions are out of work through no fault of their own.

Many in your ranks say we should let it completely collapse and do nothing. Your Tea Party Mob wants to let Americans citizens go without health care and the unemployed loose their homes and go hungry.

Those that created the mess are still living well and want no new taxes or regulations.

We are already laying off teachers do you want to start closing public hospitals in financial trouble?

Obama was elected my a large majority and polls are not part of the political process.

Take a chill pill and don't try to incite another Oklahoma City bombing.

While you, Sark , Guy chill try to out think Obama and liberals with better ideas to create jobs that pay a living wage and increase the middle class.

Try to figure out what investments in such times as these will reduce poverty and improve the lives of the most Americans.

Please do engage in the lazy think of more tax cuts will fix everything.

How is the Tea Party movement going to be a force for a better America?

All I've seen so far is a mob of pissed off uninformed old farts shouting we want our country back. What does that mean? Did they lose their job or is that sour grapes because their candidate didn't win the last election?

Stop using the blog for silly shit and post one real problem at a time with what you think the tea party movement has a real answer to beyond tax cuts and another war.

Honest Debate said...

Yea Lib, I'll get right on that.

This is the corrected question above:

Please do not engage in the lazy thinking of more tax cuts, more gun rights and more religion will fix everything.

Sark,

I agree, the reporter does seem racist. I would go as far to say that anyone that is trying to paint the tea partiers as racist should look in the mirror to see the real culprit. This is really getting to me. Obama has made any rational discussion of race impossible.

Check out this poll of the Republican base.

I have no idea what your point is Lib.

I question the Tea Party Mob's reasoning and logic. Like most mobs little think is going on.

Here's a couple of paragraphs on the Republican base which is the Tea Party Mob.

"It's a shame, because there are some areas in which a conservative philosophy – reminding us of the limits of grand human schemes, and advising caution – could be a useful corrective. But that's not what these so-called "conservatives" are providing: instead, they are pumping up a hysterical fantasy that serves as a thin skin covering some raw economic interests and base prejudices.

For many of the people at the top of the party, this is merely cynical manipulation. One of Bush's former advisers, David Kuo, has said the President and Karl Rove would mock evangelicals as "nuts" as soon as they left the Oval Office. But the ordinary Republican base believe this stuff. They are being tricked into opposing their own interests through false fears and invented demons. Last week, one of the Republicans sent to disrupt a healthcare town hall started a fight and was injured – and then complained he had no health insurance. I didn't laugh; I wanted to weep.

How do they train themselves to be so impervious to reality? It begins, I suspect, with religion. They are taught from a young age that it is good to have "faith" – which is, by definition, a belief without any evidence to back it up. You don't have "faith" that Australia exists, or that fire burns: you have evidence. You only need "faith" to believe the untrue or unprovable. Indeed, they are taught that faith is the highest aspiration and most noble cause. Is it any surprise this then percolates into their political views? Faith-based thinking spreads and contaminates the rational."

"Keep dreaming Lib."

I'm not the one living in Tea Party Land.

Honest Debate said...

This is a must watch. It's the most blatant and hilarious bias from MSNBC I've seen yet.

Sarkazein said...

H.D- POV would call that "journalism".

Blogger said...

Honest Debate, this post and the hilarious bias one are so great. Thanks. When media people can get this far gone, I still have to keep my blinded by demon infestation theory active.

Honest Debate said...

Blogger,

I can't argue with the "demon infestation" theory. It's surreal.

MSNBC needs an exorcist.

Johnny Rico said...

Anyone notice that Liberal Socialist Sheep POV seems fixated on the Tea Party. If it were an illegitimate group, he wouldn't give it a second thought. The Tea Party has grown powerful enough that Liberal Socialist Sheep is afraid. For good reason - we will be able to overturn the communist health care after November and eventually run Hussein Obama out of the Black House, I mean White House.

LSS POV, you running a bit scared these days since you know what is coming in November? LOL!!

Can't wait my friend!!!!!

Your ole pal

Tea Party Mob

Lets consider the facts.

We have a Tea Party attendee showing up packing what looks to be an assault weapon to a protest and the only think you his fellow Tea Party mob find wrong is how MSNBC reported the story?

That in its self speaks to what a bunch of insane people are in the ranks of this group.

Had this been a protesters at the Republican National Convention he would be dead now.

Honest Debate said...

Lib,

Your funny. You open with "let's consider the facts" and then proceed to make things up. Watch the video again and you will see Gutfeld say bringing a machine gun to a rally is "nuts" and "inappropriate". Check the comments and see if anyone challenged that notion. No, they did not. Of course it's nuts and inappropriate ...but legal.

You are the one that always harps on edited video even when the edits are completely and utterly harmless and change nothing. Now look at you! I can't sop laughing and I'm not laughing with you.

I do want to thank you for the links however. Nice job. I had almost forgotten how unhinged and violent the left was during the convention. There is no comparable video from the protest by the right at the DNC convention. Not even close. If you can find it I'll drive to Boone and buy you dinner. That will leave you some extra food stamps to buy beer with.
