MSNBC's Richard Wolffe Smears McCain as a Bigot: 'There's No Other Way to Look at It'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 11/19/2012 6:08:04 PM PST by chessplayer

Former top Newsweek journalist and current MSNBC.com editor Richard Wolffe on Monday smeared Senator John McCain as a racist. According to Wolffe, there's no legitimate reason for the Republican to oppose Susan Rice's confirmation for Secretary of State. Appearing on Hardball, the journalist sneered that it was "outrageous" the way McCain was acting, raging against "this witch hunt going on the right about these people of color, let's face it, around this president. Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, now Susan Rice."

Such a charge seemed to shock even Chris Matthews. He sputtered, "McCain, who had his own daughter attacked, was accused of having an illegitimate child when, in fact, he adopted a young girl from South Asia. You're saying that McCain's being driven by racial prejudice here?" Wolffe confirmed, "There is no other way to look at this..."

Monkey see, monkey do. Everyone on the left is jumping on the "it's racist to criticize Rice" bandwagon.

I may not like his politics, but John McCain is not a bigot.

For the love of God, how much lower will these people go?

Let the nutty MSNBC call anyone they want “racist,” including John McCain. Who cares what is said on that station, I certainly do not

Using the racial canard to cover up the Benghazi murders.

Normally, such deviants would be fired. A Comcast employee.

Sorry, but I’m finding it hard to find sympathy for McCain. These are the same people he tried to play footsie with when he was preening as a “maverick” Republican in the 90’s and 00’s, and now he expects a fair hearing from them???

McCain was too stupid to realize he was being used, and when he’s no longer convenient for the them, it’s “buh-bye, c’ya, nice to know ya’”. Screw him, serves him right.

Message to Republicans. The Left is NOT your friend. DESTROY THEM.

It’s all these worthless bass-turds have. It’s about time we start saying “hell yes and so are you”. Maybe after a while they will get the message.

The libtards have used the “racist” epithet so much it has very little meaning any more. As for “sexist”, well, it doesn’t even register.

“According to Wolffe, there’s no legitimate reason for the Republican to oppose Susan Rice’s confirmation for Secretary of State.”

Translated: OK, she’s a liar but in this administration that’s a resume enhancer, so McCain must be a racist.

Fraud is generally defined in the law as an intentional misrepresentation of material existing fact made by one person to another with knowledge of its falsity and for the purpose of inducing the other person to act, and upon which the other person relies with resulting injury or damage. Fraud may also be made by an omission or purposeful failure to state material facts, which nondisclosure makes other statements misleading.

You prove my point, Bush has black SOS, libs either fail to notice her skin color, or, worse yet, make insulting, racist cartoons about her,

It's never about skin color nor race, it's about liberalis,!

Their blacks' skin must be blocker than ours otherwise why else would they even notice.

That is why bothering to notice or comment is a waste of time.

Just sub racism for fascism.

” ...the word ‘Fascism’ is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print. I have heard it applied to farmers, shopkeepers, Social Credit, corporal punishment, fox-hunting, bull-fighting, the 1922 Committee, the 1941 Committee, Kipling, Gandhi, Chiang Kai-Shek, homosexuality, Priestley’s broadcasts, Youth Hostels, astrology, women, dogs and I do not know what else ... Except for the relatively small number of Fascist sympathisers, almost any English person would accept ‘bully’ as a synonym for ‘Fascist’. That is about as near to a definition as this much-abused word has come.”

Well according to the McCain Rules unless this journalist served his country in the military he has no right to say anything critical of John McCain. Atleast those are the rules the left applies to any republican disagreeing with McCain. Of course typical to who they are the left exempts themselves from these rules when they need top trash McCain.

Former top Newsweek journalist...

People voted their subscriptions dollars and Newsweek went under.

Maybe MSNBC.com editor Richard Wolffe can do for MSNBC what he helped do for Newsweek...

Your guess is as good as mine but right now the MSM is changing the subject by abusing the plaintiffs, so I suppose whether or not she’s qualified will have to wait until they finish smearing McCain.

We haven’t seen anything yet, now that The One has another 4 years. Wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see laws written that would make it illegal for whites to critcize non-whites in any shape or form.

I used to think that, but not anymore. If anything, it’s becoming MORE effective. If it wasn’t effective, they would stop using it. They have whites scared out of their skulls and walking on eggshells so as not to “offend” non-whites. McCain goes in front of the media now and they ask him why he hates non-whites. The entire thing has been turned on him, not Rice.

Three questions for Benghazi-Coward Obama:

1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?

2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?

3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT about your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?

McCain’s response to Benghazi on the campaign trail was spot on. Righteous, even.

Otherwise, McCain’s a snake.

When the left pulls out the race card, you know someone is getting too close to the truth about BO. This is done so people will back off the trail. Hopefully, McCain will ignore this stupidity and press on.

I agree with what you are saying about the left using the race card being effective.
So, in return our wimps on the republican side should start branding these a$$holes with being...radical left wing biggots and racists.
We can never win if we are the only ones playing by the rules of civility. Time to take the damn gloves off!!!

There’s No Other Way to Look at It
You claim to be objective.

But actually trying to be objective would require you to talk about any possible reasons why you might not be objective.

But since that is the exact opposite of claiming actually to be objective - i.e., since that would not make you seem superior - that is something you would never do.

You are not even trying to be objective. Naturally you are blind to any other “way to look at it” than your own.

The left has learned that accusations of racism are effective even when baseless. It pervades the media that Repubs are racists and eventually it is considered common knowedge. For example I saw something on TV where a guy pretending to be Donald Trump insulting someone pretenting to be Rosie ODonnell. After a session of harsh insults the guy steps out of character and says something like “how can anyone take this racist guy seriously”. Anyone challenging the left is branded a racist and it repeated consistently and is NOT CHALLENGED so people assume it is true. It WORKS.
