Skip to comments.Massachusetts: Olbermann Cries Racism
Posted on 01/19/2010 6:21:19 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Amidst the innumerable excuses we're bound to hear for tonight's Massachusetts election results, credit Keith Olbermann with likely the most loathsome. The Countdown host would explain things away by accusing Brown supporters of . . . racism. [H/t reader Will H.]
Olbermann floated his despicable theory to Howard Fineman: "the Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens with Scott Brown tonight whether he wins or comes close is a repudiation of Obama policies. And surely one of Obama's policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is it's OK to have this sea-change in American historyto have an African-American president. Is this vote to any degree just another euphemism the way 'states rights' was in the '60s?"

YEAH! Centerfold wins!!!
Olbermann blames Brown win on racism ping to Today show list.
Racism: the only thing all white MSNBC seems to want to talk about anymore.
What’s next, any guy that drives a pick up must be a redneck racist?
The good news is that tonight proves the American people, even from the Bluest of states, get tired of the same old nonsense. They obviously don’t buy the “this is all Bush’s fault, we inherited all these problems” and they will grow tired of the “everyone that is against Obama’s policies must be a racist” crap.
What an absolute crybaby
Seriously, I am just waiting for someone in person to deploy this canard on me. The presumption is that we would just love socialism if a white boy (or girl) tried to sell us on it. It's already been tried and failed.
Keith should stick to sports...
God, I love it!
Same here - it is a beautiful thing!
I can’t to watch old Keith blow a blood vessel on his show. He is really a loser
You can blame anything on racism. And if the person you are arguing with disagrees, you just call him a racist. If you were a liberal, you would know that already."
Truth really is stranger than fiction, sometimes.
Wait just a minute...they voted for a guy named Brown...how could it be racism?
Actually, Fineman hinted at this. He basically said, "Lots of folks in the south drive 'em".
Best line of the night, however, was Howard Dean blamed the loss on (drumroll, please) George Bush!
Ok, I’ll bite? Who is Keith Olberman? This isn’t that jackass comic who can’t get a punchline straight, is it? Is he an expert on national politics? This country is really screwed up if we take a guy like this seriously......
It’s the msm communists, followers of saul alinsky, to divide this country. Besides, if they didn’t have racism to cry and moan about...what would they talk about?
Sure- I’ll buy that, Keith !!
I am using words daily that I have not used for 30++ years, and it is all because of Obama.
Guess that means Obama brought back racism!!!
Why is that the liberals are blaming everything except what should be blamed for this? That is, if Ted Kennedy didn’t consider his seat a hereditary peerage and bowed out so that an election could be held under more favorable terms for his party, this election could have been different.
The thing this tells me, is that Keef is HATING this night, and is nearly suicidal.
And that makes me smile.
Nah, Obozo is acting stupidly.
You know, maybe some good will come from Keith’s shenanigans. Too often conservatives fold under baseless accusations of racism. Now maybe when Crazy Keith or someone else goes off on a rant like this, more conservatives will stand up and point out how ridiculous it is.
For the first time in my life, I would like to see Olberman face to face, and I would like to do it tonight.
James 3,9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt[a] water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water
Ron Brownstain tried to pull the same shit on MJoe this morning...took Barnicle 10 seconds to remind Brownstain that Mass is 3:1 Democrat. MJoe too stupid to remind both that Obama and Deval won Mass by 20 points rather, uh, recently.
That, and how in the hell Deval Patrick didn't take a gift-wrapped Senate seat...
Okay, let's go with Olbermann's assertion. So Brown won because of racism.
“Keith should stick to sports...”
Keith can go to h3ll and enjoy same with Ted.
You thought you’d heard it all? Think again.
Now, this statement by Olbermann defies logic. All those voters in Massachusetts are racist? But for decades they elected Ted Kennedy, the black man’s “friend”.
I dunno, Keith. But since you brought it up, perhaps you'd like to explain why there was a much greater % of Democrats than Republicans in both the House and Senate that OPPOSED the Civil Rights Act of 1964?!
How many Mass voters is he saying are racist right along w/Brown?
Olbermann and Fineman are demagogic weasels.
Why am I NOT surprised at Keith ???
Congrats, Mass voters. You are now officially labeled racists, just like all of us southerners. Don’t try to say you’re not. The media has declared it so.
I detest Olberman. I really do.
I expect crap like this from KO. He’s the worst of the worst idiots. This is especially pathetic.
I always remember the election night that Carville upended a waste basket on his head. That was priceless.
The lefties on Keith Olberman`s slopp-fest are trying to push the nuclear option,full bore,no pulling back.The arrogance of these leftist @ssh*les,they just won`t,JUST CAN`T, get it.
Marsha must have been a light skin black and I didn’t notice.
I don’t hate Obama because of the color of his skin.
I hate him because of the content of his character.
I oppose all Marxists and Socialists, not matter what color they are...
Since when is owning a pick-up truck a "white" thing? I'm sure that quite a number of non-whites drive them as well, but bigots like Olbermann love to stereotype and don't let obvious facts get in their way.
Thanks for the ping!
What a riot. Olbermaniac doesn't YET even knnow that : 1) Obama is not Black, he is Arabian/white 2) Obama is not an American, which is why Obama conceals his de facto birth details, spendiong over 2 million dollars to do so in fact. Obama verifies this by acting UnAmerican! I tire of these fascists prigs. Keith deserves a punch in the nose, a re-arranged face. Obama is not America's first "Black President" because he is not a patriot. Obama is America's first treasonous president, who was wrongly elected under the mistaken romantic notion that he was a "black president" of heroic proportions. Obama even told Ammerica that is what he is, a hero. It wass all a lie,bought and paid for by big money from the Arabs and George Soros. We knew that from the second America watched in horror as Obama bent over and licked the hand of the King of Saudi Arabia.No American would ever do that. We can't be rid of Obama soon enough, and all the men like Olbermaniac who parasitically infest our country and drain us of our blood of freedom. PARASITIC WORMS, ALL OF THEM!
At least Olberdork is admitting that the dem losing the election IS A REFERENDUM on BO.
Lets see. Massachusetts gave Bammy a 26 point win in Nov.-08. Now, all of a sudden, Massachusetts is filled with people wearing sheets and looking for crosses to burn. Voting for one white person over another white person is now racist. And pick-up trucks are racist, too!!! Learn something new every day.
Blaming George Bush after a year is like an adult who blames his inability to hold down a job, or his being an alcoholic, or whatever, on his childhood, like Mommy didn’t potty train him correctly. But as long as the media gives them a pass, they will continue to blame it on Bush. Or Cheney.
