Massachusetts: Olbermann Cries Racism
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

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 history—to have an African-American president. Is this vote to any degree just another euphemism the way 'states rights' was in the '60s?"

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.

MEMO TO Keith-- I vote against white Marxists too.

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...

This reminds me of the old Mallard Filmore cartoon where the fat editor explains racism.

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.

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!

Racism?

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.

Voting against an elitist white-bread caucasian chick is now racist.

The thing this tells me, is that Keef is HATING this night, and is nearly suicidal.

And that makes me smile.

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.

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.

Keith Olbermann with likely the most loathsome. The Countdown host would explain things away by accusing Brown supporters of . . . racism.

Okay, let's go with Olbermann's assertion. So Brown won because of racism.

  1. Obama won in Mass., beating out (quasi-)conservative McCain. I believe it wasn't even a contest.
  2. Today, Brown won in Mass., beating out liberal Cloakley.
  3. In order for Brown to win, the necessary conclusion is that the majority which pushed Obama into the White House also pushed Brown into the Seanate.
  4. So, if that racist majority voted Brown in, how did they manage to vote Obama in?
    1. More black racists showed up for the Presidential election?
    2. More white racists showed up for the Seanate election?
  5. So just what is Olbermann really saying about th voters of Mass.?

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”.

"Is this vote to any degree just another euphemism the way 'states rights' was in the '60s?""

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?!

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.

Hey Keith,

I don’t hate Obama because of the color of his skin.

I hate him because of the content of his character.

If I had to choose a stereotypical anal-retentive leftist, I'd pick Olbermann. His attempt to inject race into a campaign where it was never mentioned was way off base, but something not surprising, considering who Olbermann is.

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.

And surely one of Obama's policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is it's OK to have this sea-change in American history—to have an African-American president>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

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!

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.
