Skip to comments.Karen Finney and MSNBC Slander Conservatives with Martin Killing

Former DNC spokesperson Karen Finney has been leading the effort at MSNBC to turn the Trayvon Martin shooting into a political story implicating conservatives. It began with her smear of Rush Limbaugh and GOP presidential candidates while filling in as host of the Martin Bashir show:
"So, when Newt Gingrich, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says that, quote, "really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works. They have no habit of I do this and you give me cash, unless it's illegal," or Rick Santorum says, "I don't want to make black people's lives easier," or Rush Limbaugh calls a presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama a magic negro, or Mitt Romney says nothing at all, the effect is dangerous because they reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African-Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance. In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences."
There are numerous problems with Finney's litany of complaints against the right. Newt Gingrich never singled out a particular race in his comments, rather he was focused on a class, "really poor children" a class that could involve children of any race.
As for Rick Santorum, the quote Finney uses to smear him is false, as I noted here two months ago. Santorum never said "I don't want to make black people's lives easier." He mangled a word in the midst of a sentence which CBS and others falsely reported as "black." Listen closely to the clip and you find he did not say the word "black" at all.
Rush Limbaugh did use the term "magic negro," but it didn't originate with him....

I’m ok with that.
Let the democrats own the inner-city thug culture, like the one in Chicago where a six year old girl was killed in front of her house by gang-banga drive-by shooting.
I’ve been on the planet long enough to know that stereotypes work. It’s what I always start with when meeting a person for the first time. It’s why I was so successful in retail sales back in the late 70’s.
The key is that the stereotype is a starting point from where actual ongoing incoming data allows you to tailor your response to a person.
Slander, libel, vilification, character assassination, name calling, empty accusations, etc. are all various types of verbal attacks that Leftists use to dominate the verbal battlefield.
If that doesn’t work then they get violent and go with physical attacks.
Zimmerman is Jewish/Hispanic.
And a Democrat.
How are Republicans responsible??
The facts don’t matter anymore.
The MSM likes to flex their muscles and if they can cause a real race war based on false information they will.
It’s MSNBC. They can lie, slander, distort anything to their advantage and it is infallible and above reproach.
I do not think there are two people here who watch that drivel. And looking at the NO profanity, No personal attacks, No racism, we migth want to think about using another site in the future as well.
Democrats have a LONG tradition of lynching innocent minorities for Political Gain.
Today’s MSNBC Klux Klan is just a continuation of that tradition.
WHERE ARE THE HISPANIC DEMOCRAT RACE HUSTLERS in all of this?
Are they AFRAID to defend a hispanic with a Jewish last name?
...GET A ROPE!...the "White Hispanic" cracker must be brought to "justice" at the end of a rope...
....BTW...the BP party must be a bunch of paupers, since they only offered 10 grand for the "white hispanic's" head..
...no respectable hit man will work that cheap.
Wait a minute. I dont’ see Santorum’s face in the mob.
The Latinos and Cubans have to be talking about this...... Obama is losing voters left, right and center. The Dems will have to really crank out the dead vote to get Dumbo to win.
