    Where was the Reverend Al when police killed Hispanic Iraq war vet Jose Guerena? Jay Stephenson GenerationSnooki.com March 24 2012 On May 5 last year, former Marine and Iraq war veteran Jose Guerena was just minding his business before police raided his Arizona home and opened fire, releasing more than 70 rounds in 7 seconds while his wife Vanessa and 4-year old son listened from a nearby closet. Armed with SWAT gear and an armored carrier, police no knock raided the Guerena home searching for illegal drugs that were never found. He was suspected of taking part in a marijuana...

The Cold War years are full of unpleasant memories for the Left, whose intellectuals, ignoring the horrors of the Russian Revolution, Stalin’s massacres, and much...
  • MSNBC’s Karen Finney Claims GOP Responsible For Benghazi Attack

    NewsBusters.org ^ | May 10, 2013 | Jeffrey Meyer
    Apparently the folks at MSNBC have decided that the Benghazi investigation is merely a political ploy by the GOP to hinder Hillary ClintonÂ’s presidential ambitions in 2016. Instead of addressing the substantive issues that potentially resulted in a cover-up surrounding the attack, MSNBC anchors and pundits have been going out of there way to protect the Obama administration and smear Republicans. Doing her duty to defend team Obama on Martin Bashir May 10 program, soon-to-be MSNBC host and former DNC Communications Director Karen Finney laid the blame for the dead in Benghazi on, who else, congressional Republicans: But I believe...
  • MSNBC’s Karen Finney Says the Koch Brothers Killed Trayvon Martin

    Red State ^ | 3/23/2012 | Erick Erickson
    Trayvon Martin’s death in Florida is a terrible tragedy made even worse by a police department that seemingly bungled the investigation. There are multiple eyewitnesses, some who saw the shooter, George Zimmerman, yelling for help. Others saw Trayvon Martin yelling for help. It shouldn’t be a partisan issue. But MSNBC decided to make it one. According to Karen Finney on MSNBC, the Koch Brothers, NRA, and other conservatives are responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death. They have blood on their hands because they apparently built a time machine with their billions and went back to 1789 and inserted the second amendment...
  • MSNBC's Finney Won’t Let Shooting Tragedy Go To Waste, Connects to Voter ID Laws

    On Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s NOW with Alex Wagner, former DNC Communications Director Karen Finney (and occasional MSNBC host) used the tragic death of Trayvon Martin to viciously attack Republicans across the country. The segment started out examining the role of gun laws in our society and quickly turned into an assault on Republicans, following comments made by liberal-host Wagner. Wagner made the claim that, “We had a map of the 25, 26 states with stand your ground laws. You can actually overlay a map of the red states in this country.” Such divisive rhetoric fed into the liberal talking...
  • Democrats Say Talk Radio Killed Black Florida Teen

    03/23/2012 7:19:31 PM PDT · by Tailgunner Joe · 93 replies · 4+ views
    On MSNBC last week, Democratic Party strategist Karen Finney blamed talk radio king Rush Limbaugh for the fatal shooting last month of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch captain in a mixed neighborhood in Florida. Limbaugh, along with Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, "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," Finney said. In the Trayvon Martin incident, Finney claimed "those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences." One might ask how Finney knows that...

    THE FREEDOM POST ^ | March 14, 2012 | Matthew Burke
    Leading Democrat strategist, MSNBC political analyst, and columnist for "The Hill", Karen Finney, was perplexed, dismayed and disappointed that GOP presidential candidate, Rick Santorum, had carried the women's vote in the last two primaries in the southern states of Mississippi and Alabama. Finney, apparently believes that all women are far-left liberals who want other Americans to pay for their contraceptives, as does Democrat Party poster child, Sandra Fluke. Finney, intolerant of opposing viewpoints and being unable to comprehend that not all women think exactly like she does (hating conservatives and their values), the only logical explanation for Santorum getting the...

How can this happen? " Karen Finney, big-time Democrat strategerist, said it hurt her that women voted for Santorum. FINNEY: (haltingly) Well... This woman vote really hurts me, I gotta say. (snickering) It's a little painful 'cause I'm wondering if those women really heard the full message that: Yes, there is the economy, but if you've gotta worry about your basic health care, how are you then gonna be able to...

    MSNBC commentator Karen Finney waded into the muddied waters of sexual politics and miscegenation on Monday’s Martin Bashir. “It’s going to be fascinating to see how this story unfolds over the next several days and particularly interesting to see how our friends on the right handle the accusations from these women in conjunction with how they handled Anita Hill.” “What do you mean, Karen?” Bashir pressed. “Look, I think it will be interesting to see if these guys rally around Herman Cain with as much voracity as they have these last couple of weeks now that it’s clear that a...

    As we find ourselves gliding through another week of political headlines, I continue to be amazed by the ream of personal attacks mounted against Herman Cain by black liberals. You wouldn’t think America elected its first black president by the way black Democrats, those so called progressives, who the media paint as the compassionate party, are behaving. From calling Cain a “sell out” to “Uncle Tom” because he chooses to be a Republican doesn’t sound like progressive talk to me but rather backwards racist talk. The latest black Democrat to mouth off with racist comments about Cain is Karen Finney....

    Karen Finney is not just any Democrat; she was the spokeswoman for the Democrat National Committee, served in the Clinton White House, was the press secretary for Hillary Clinton's New York Senate race, and is a veteran of four Presidential Campaigns. Tasked with analyzing Herman Cain's surge in the GOP's Presidential campaign for MSNBC last week, Finney offered up the most outrageous, insulting, demeaning single sentence we have ever heard – particularly by someone who supposedly speaks for an entire national political party. "I think he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel that they're not...

    On Martin Bashir's television program this afternoon, Democratic strategist and MSNBC analyst Karen Finney said that Republicans are supporting Herman Cain because of his race: One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy," Finney said. "I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he's a black man who knows his place. I know that's harsh, but that's how it sure seems to me."
