Mass. Senate Race: NBC News Cries Racism | The FOX Nation

New racist stereo type: You own a pickup, you’re a racist.

These people will never admit that there is actually an ideology break between this president and congress and the American people that has nothing, whatsoever, to do with race. But now even New Englanders are redneck, pickup driving, gun toting race haters.

My God. Will it ever end with these jerks? Will they ever get it?

From Newsbusters – Obama says Fox operates like talk radio

As Michelle Malkin said this morning on Fox, TheOne has 2 hours to spend with “journalists”- if you include Keith Olberman and Rachel Maddow in that club and they were included in his meeting with reporters – but he can only spare 25 minutes with General McChrystal, in the last how many months?

In the video clip below, he tells the NBC “journalist” that the American people are more interested in the economy and the war in Afghanistan rather than answer her question about his Fox news feud. But what he’s failing to own up to is his attempt to distract the American people, by promoting his Fox offensive, from those very things.

Fox should announce one day a week how well their ratings are doing since TheOne started his boycott and then say nothing else about it. Indifference is a killer and Fox should regard this whole silly thing as nothing. Let the LameStreamMedia report on it all they want but Fox should continue to report the news that Obama is trying to distract the country from knowing about and ignore the boycott. It’s obviously not hurting them at all.

Olberman wants all the dirt on Beck

Keith Olberman

H/T to Vicki at Frugal Cafe Blog.

I copied and pasted this because no, I am not going to link anyone to DailyKos to read this:

Find everything you can about Glenn Beck,  Stu Burguiere, and Roger Ailes ….

Tuesday we will expand this to the television audience and have a dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts, on Beck, his radio producer Burguiere, and the chief of his tv enablers, Ailes (even though Ailes’ power was desperately undercut when he failed to pull off his phony “truce” push).

This becomes necessary after this in order to prove various cliches about goose and gander, and to remind everybody to walk softly and carry a big popsicle, and most particularly to save this nation from the Oligarhy of The Stupid.

I keep wondering if somewhere somebody named Ollie Garhey thinks he’s in charge now. Or, even more entertainingly and societally satisfying, if somebody named Ali Garhi does.

Despite the worn-out snark above, I am in earnest here.

Oh please. Unbelievable that because Glenn Beck might be “going after” Cass Sunstein next, Olberman is going to make Beck a target? Can Olberman be more transparent in his allegiance to the Obama administration and all his minions? Keith’s starstruck love-from-afar affair with Obama is almost kinky. Or borders on sick. What was it you said about those psychiatrists preparing to write out prescriptions, Keith? I think maybe you’re suffering from a little obsession, yourself.

Now to be serious, nothing that Beck said about the art work on New York City landmarks was incorrect and even Olberman didn’t dispute that. He mocked and ridiculed Beck but he didn’t dispute anything Beck pointed out.

Diego Rivera was a communist. That’s a fact. His mural for Rockefeller, Man at the Crossroads, was a communist statement, another fact. The mural is full of lots of communist symbols and faces, as Beck pointed out. Trotsky’s face was in it, as well as Lenin’s. This was Diego’s vision of communism versus capitalism. The subjects on the right are all communist icons and represent the communist vision of the future. By contrast, the left side of the mural represents the capitalist elite, the Wall Street society. To Diego, the left of the mural represented the evil, dark side of humanity (capitalism) while the right with the face of Lenin, represents the communist ideal of social justice.

I studied the guy in college.

I don’t remember ever hearing or reading anywhere that Rockefeller was a communist however, and Beck does infer that in his show.

So anyway, what this all boils down to is Olberman is going after Beck, et al because Beck was instrumental in the, likely forced, resignation of a communist from the Obama administration. No one at MSNBC or anyother news outlet cared or wanted to besmirch the image of their messiah and they were eclipsed by some internet bloggers, Glenn Beck and Fox News. The Keith Olberman types just can’t stand that they are now being shown for the lazy, hangers-on to the Great One that they are.

I mean seriously, Olberman is so lazy, he’s enlisting DailyKos readers to dig up dirt on Beck, Ailes and Burguiere.  He won’t even do his own dirty work, if there IS any dirty work to be done. I’d be surprised if they find anything noteworthy about any of those men.

But this is all so pathetic.

It’s hell when the curtain is pulled back and you are shown for what you really are: a bunch of pathetic Obama groupies.
