NBC Edits Perry Comment, Makes Claim of Racism

Main Street Radical, August 16, 2011

And so it begins. When a candidate has a record of success to run on, what is left in the arsenal of a liberal? NBC is the first mainstream media outlet to falsify a racism claim against new presidential candidate Rick Perry of Texas. {snip} The lesson for GOP hopefuls: don’t use the word “black” in any context. {snip}

    I heard this on talk radio today. How can these leftist obama worshipers at msnbc, possibly hope to get away with such blatant idiocy? Do they think that Perry’s people or conservatives in the media are not going to catch them? Unbelievable…..Perry should sue msnbc.

    Sorry NBC but hasn’t anyone told you that this Soviet style propaganda is now wearing very thin with white U.S. citizens? Nobody is buying into this slight of hand reporting anymore.If you expect this type of “reporting” to have a chance at being effective you had better find a way to strap white people to an easy chair in front of their televisions while using a hypnotizing swirl.

    Politics should be boots and all. I think the American nation is ready for a president who will say it like it is! He will get a bit more respect from the voters.

    As it seems like the campaign has already begun perhaps they can now pull out every bit of dirt, inuendo and concern about B Hussein Obama’s background.(And shout it from the rooftops if MSM won’t show/print it!)

    Before any of you cheerlead for Perry, ask a Texan what they think of him. Not much. for a REAL look at his personality delve into the incident early in his Governorship when he insulted and degraded the very Highway Patrolmen assigned to his protection…

    Id rather see Obama win again with Oprah as his running mate than vote for Perry.

    Before we start engaging in apologetics for Rickroller Perry, remember this:

    Note: I think Alex Jones gets it half right and half wrong in the larger scheme of things. This is from the sane part of his brain.

    Pay close attention to 8, 11 and 13. Even if you didn’t know Texas was on the Mexican border and that the Mexican demographic inside Texas was fast growing, so much so that credible demographers have basically said “it’s all over for whites” in the state, only a matter of time, then 8 11 and 13 would be dead giveaways that whatever political division it’s talking about is experiencing a drastic rise in some cheap labor racial lumpenproletariat.

    The Texas job growth machine of Rickroller Perry and George W. Bush before him as Governor is one of cheap labor Hispanics dragging down the wage scale.

    Who will be the first mainstream candidate to openly embrace “racism,” or at least racial insensitivity embodied by refusing to pander to minorities?

    This nation is still majority white, at least for another 20 years or so. There is a huge untapped well of white voters who are fed up with political correctness — and yes, BLACKS — who would embrace a candidate who just said the heck with it and refused to play the game.

    It doesn’t take a genius to figure out Perry was referring to the “black cloud of DEBT” that hangs over America, in large part thanks to BO and his henchmen. Only an imbecile would assume that because he used the word “black”, he meant BO. Whoever that commentator is, he should be sent on to his higher good for his sheer stupidity.

    While anybody is better than Obama, I think I’ll sit this election out if Perry, Bachmann, or Romney get the nomination.

  • NBJ

    This is no surprise coming from foul mouth Ed Schultz. Talk about a rabid, foaming at the mouth liberal. He bashes White America every chance he gets, while I’m sure living in his all White up scale neighborhood never experiencing the joys of diversity the rest of us have to endure. However, he will scream RACISTS! the loudest and most often if we object, or God forbid disagree with Obama on ANY policy. A bigger hypocrite there never was.

    I once used the term “great White whale” referring to an obese non White person. A black co worker thought it was terribly racist and asked me how I could say such a thing about my own race.

    So I explained that there is a whale known as a Great White because they are White and huge and that fat White people are often referred to as Great White Whales by other Whites.

    He had a great term for an obese black woman who was touchy, grouchy and a pain to work with. He called her the “big brown shrek.”

    I guess race and color touch everything including gossipping about obnoxious co-workers.

    Gloomy Obama is, figuratively speaking, very much a black cloud that hangs over America, although that is a result of his politics, policies and personality, and is quite independent of his race.

    However, Perry didn’t call Obama a black cloud, he was clearly referring to the debt, both immediately before and after his use of the phrase “black cloud”, and his comments were blatantly edited and then misconstrued to make him out to be a racist, when he was being no such thing.

    This is an outrageous example of gross misbehavior by the partisan media on behalf of Obama. It will get far worse in 2012 – they’re just warming up.

  • Tim in Indiana

    In a balanced media, this deceptive edit would be publicized all across America by the other news outlets, but of course it won’t be. And as far as the right wing loving to remind Americans that Obama is “other” and “not like us,” who is it that has made a cottage industry of reminding us about race in virtually every discussion (every black problem must be due to white “racism”)–the liberals, of course. What disgusting hypocrites.

    There is something called Insiders Report. Allegedly there is a person high in Democratic circles who works in the White House.

    He or she claims that Obama’s handlers plan to use the race card to extremes in the up coming election. He or she claims that possible Democratic candidates are afraid to run because they have already been threatened with charges of racism. He or she thinks there will be planned race riots next summer, mostly incidents created when a White police officer confronts a black criminal. Community leaders are ready to whip up the mobs. Thugs and criminals will be ready to break open the windows of stores so looting will be easy.

    I know that the Rodney King riots were planned years in advance.

    The community leaders and Stanley Sheinbaum, anti police activist had all the preparations in place and were just waiting for a precipating incident as they call it in movie scripts and fiction.

    Stanley Sheinbaum was a major instigator of the Rodney King riots. He is about 90 now thank God and can do no more evil. He is a proud communist. He married one of Jack Warner’s daughters and used the Warner movie fortune for decades to work against White Americans.

    That is what we are fighting, people with billions of dollars to use and the entire media including the so called conservatives are against us.

    How is that referring to black people as black racist, when many black people themselves use it to refer to themselves? Or is this a case of ‘If you are white you cannot use it, but if you are black, you can’?

    I have a cynical feeling that black people might start freaking out and accusing anything that is named or referred to as ‘black’ as racist, because black people themselves often cannot understand the notion of ‘context’.

    I have noticed a curious thing about main stream media – mostly left publications like they NYT – since the advent of the internet and the ability of bloggers, etc, to expose media slant (for example there were, at one time several sites and blogs devoted exclusively to criticizing the NYT) , the left especially, has actually become more bias, as if lying MORE will cover up people exposing their lies….

    I would think “great white whale” would be a reference to the Herman Melville book, Moby Dick, but maybe those type of books aren’t read any more…… whatever, most blacks are way too full of themselves and their race.

    By association, this shady practice unfairly taints Al Sharpton, the bellwether of NBC News. Be not dismayed, Reverend, but maintain those standards for which you and the National Broadcasting Company are known.

    Obama’s not black. He is a medium golden tan. He is no darker than the average Arab. Another reason why so many people doubt his Father is the truly black skinned Obama Sr.

  • white is right, black is whack

    More ways to control whites, and especially white conservatives, to take away more power, money and rights from us.

  • Question Diversity

    This little agitprop non-incident is a mild taste of what’s to come.

    The main problem for the Republicans running for President is this — Whoever the Republicans nominate will be a white man or woman who will implicitly (unfortunately not explicitly) and by definition be asking the American voters to take the Presidency away from the first black President and give it to him or her. When it really gets down to crunch time, I think most of those running right now don’t have the stones to withstand the racial pressure.

    The only exception is probably Ron Paul, but he would campaign on pure ideology. I still don’t think he could beat Obama, but there are some numbers out there that he has the best chance vs Obama in a general election cycle, in spite of his status among Republicans not being great. Because of bankster treachery, Ron Paul’s message is finally finding open ears. What hurt him in 2008 is that what happened in mid-September didn’t happen nine months prior. Even the mid-March Bear Stearns collapse was too late to help him; John McCain had pretty much wrapped up the nomination by then mathematically.

    Now, will that typical Stupid Party racial reticence mean the Republican nominee will lose the election? It all comes down to the economy.

    Speaking of Perry…..

    http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/08/17/7397978-perry-calls-idea-of-us-mexico-border-wall-ridiculous

    I won’t vote for any of the repubs. They are all of the same stripe. Most of them like all these mexicans, legal and illegal. alike. They will NEVER secure the border and they just play games with the conservative voters who will fall for it everytime. Texas is flooded with mexicans. Nary a word from Perry…

    I will vote for Ron Paul of the Constitution Party.

  • Wayne Engle

    It’s not surprising that MSNBC is trying to make a Republican presidential candidate look like a “racist.” That’s their stock in trade: All Republic presidential candidates are stupid, and “racist.” It’s not surprising that MSNBC manipulated the video clip to try to make it look like Perry was calling Obama a “big black cloud,” as their ethics have been found wanting before.

    What is surprising is how quickly the mainstream media jumped on the “smear Rick Perry” bandwagon — he’d hardly left the podium after declaring his candidacy in South Carolina before the negativity started. I knew Perry might be a formidable candidate for the Republicans if he decided to enter the race. I didn’t realize how scared the left and the Obama people are of him. They sense that he is the one who could actually defeat the Mulatto Messiah.

  • (AWG) Average White Guy

    The spirit of Joseph Goebbels haunts the hallways at NBC. The intent is to manipulate our malleable minds goading us to replace fundamental realities with multicultural delusions.

    Sad to say, it’s effective. American’s fear the ‘racist’ label.

    I recall being ten years old. No boy would allow himself to be labeled a ‘chicken.’ Some would eat bugs, dart in heavy traffic and literally walk on thin ice rather than suffer the indignities of social rejection suffered by those who ‘chickened out.’

    We live in a culture of adult ‘ten year old children.’ Our countrymen will go to most any extreme to avoid the stigma of being labeled a racist. It is a powerful tool utilized by the multiculturalists to impose themselves upon the rest of us.

    Fortunately there are ‘adults in the room’ such as Jared Taylor and the esteemed readers of AmRen who don’t care to eat bugs, walk on thin ice or quake in fear of left wing bullies.

    I call such people ‘free thinkers.’

    Thank goodness for the internet,now if all goes well ,the truth will come out and the media that has run the show will eventually stop trying to manipulate.

    Thanks Al Gore,success from the libs to bring in the RIGHT.

  • Jim

    Some of these comments disappoint me. Keep your eye on the prize. I agree none of these candidates are perfect, but all of them are superior to the candidate running against the Black Messiah in 2008. It would be foolish, not to mention ignorant, to vote for the current occupant of the White House over any of these candidates.

  • MarkLevinFan

    mark levin played sound clips tonight of minister louis farrahkahn praising the fort hood shooter and calling his victims and u.s. troops terrorists. and this guy is close friends with the obamas.

    if you havent seen the video of the looting saturday of the germantown maryland 7-11 store its some pretty disturbing stuff. made me go out and buy more ammo. i suggest you do the same.because you are going to need it white people.

  • SF Paul

    This is not a surprise and this type of manipulation will happen even more as the 2012 election gets closer. I frequently ask friends and neighbors about current events, such as the Wisconsin State Fair mobs and they are clueless. I have informed many about this website and others that tell the real truth.

    THAT’SA BAD IDEA! Not even funny.

    Seriously, I witheld my vote from McCane, a total traitor, and now I have Obama, Holder, Sotomayor, et al.

    This is much worse.

    Never accept the rule of a person of color!

    “When does a black man become a ‘n-word’ when he is in a room full of rational thinking White people?”…Ans…”As soon as he leaves the room”. Old joke but true then and even more true now. They earn that title a little more every day.

    #15 AWG – Actually, I perceive a wind change, and words like “racist”, “bigot”, and “-phobe” will be blown away. Enough people have caught on that “racist” only means “a white person mentioned something negative that black people are doing”. All it takes are a couple of high-profile white public figures to laugh off “racism” charges, and tell the accuser that the word has no meaning and doesn’t bother them.

  • highduke

    Am I really the only one who thinks Perry isn’t dumb enough to say ‘black cloud’ as a mere figure of speech in light of the flash mobs? He is a hardcore social conservative evangelical and an astute politician. In Communist Yugoslavia, Serb politicians who were aware that Serbs were facing discrimination had to use covert language in the media to refer to other nationalities in a negative manner. If Whites can’t do the same in Liberal America, then they are not using all venues of resistance.

  • almoplza

    I believe thank this partitcular “newsman” along with most our think that the vast majority of people in this country are stupid, in that they would believe that Perry was referring to the PRESIDENT. I have often used the same phrase in referring to the debt. Am I a racist? I think not, I happen to like Herman Cain and would like to see him as a front runner. That said, If Herman can’t get it Perry would be fine with me. He has a very good recoed.

    To #18 Anon, it is quite possible for his father to be extremely dark. I know this from my own son who if not for his mother everyone thought he was white. And his mother is black, and darker than Michelle Obama.

    Sometimes they come out quite white.

    It would be fascinating to do the sort of work about mental

    repression in our time with “race” that was done long ago

    with “sex”. Using hypnosis, the great Russian (Soviet era)

    psychologist Luria carried out brilliant demonstrations of the

    impact of “complexes” upon mental functioning. Of course, no one is ever going to get research permission within the UK or USA to undertake this, but surely there ought to be some near-border Mexican local politically easy enough to accommodate such research upon at least a raggedly representative sample of Yanks cro$sing over for just such purpose. Or, if money could float it all, just use an offshore ship. Repression reaches out even to use of traditional metaphors such as “Blackened heart” and, of course, a few decades ago a firestorm arose over a word used in a correct traditional way, with appropriate diction: “niggardly” It is amazing that this sort of research–and documentary films of it–have not already arisen in some suitable venue—would it be possible in Japan? in China? (my sense of the best bet would be China ) India? Russia???

    I hope you know that most, if not all, on this site do not look favorably upon black/white relationships. I think you also know WHY. It has been explained many times over and again and I am sure YOU are just a troll or seek out these sites to post your “news”.

    So, my question to you is, why you felt compelled to even announce your bi-racial relationship to us? There was no need for you to do so, is there? Did you just want a reaction? To throw it in our faces? Well, you got your reaction… Mine.

  • Ryan

    To 35 Anon-no it was not trolling. I was telling the truth. I have already written about my “relationship” about a month ago in a previous post. But you have a point.

    Regardless, proud or not it is what it is, and I would not rub it in anyone’s face. If you disagree with it that is fine, and I accept that, however I would rather be in an interacial relationship and accept my role as husband and father than run out on them like how so many Black husbands and fathers do. At this point it is a case in a race realist’s eyes of damned if I do, and damned if I don’t.

    I am proud of being White, and I support what is the general message of this site, however, to me if I follow how I was raised, and taught then I will be good and true to my word, and that means to be faithful, honest, and sincere.

    If you were proud of being White then you would have stayed “faithful, honest and sincere” within your own race, with a White wife and White children.

    Please don’t repeat that ole mantra, “love is colorblind”. Love is NEVER colorblind. Whites can always find a White person to love. Blacks can always find a black person to love. It has been this way since time began. One always needs to procreate offspring of their own racial stock. Like it or not, that is the truth and it is also God’s truth.
