MSNBC wants you to think the Republican Party hates minorities. So much so that the liberal news network cut minority speeches from it’s convention coverage.
When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.
MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black.
Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech.
And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too.
Mia Love, a black candidate for Congress in Utah, was also ignored by MSNBC.
Will MSNBC conveniently manage not to show Governor Luis Fortuno’s speech tomorrow (Wednesday night) as well?
Former Secretary of State and prominent black conservative Condoleezza Rice is also slated to speak at tomorrow night’s convention.

Watching chrissy mathews wet his pants every break is priceless. His banter with the man/girl is also entertaining.
Complete, abject, Communist-regime type controlled news/censorship no different from Cuba, Romania, USSR, Mozambique, North Korea. Just tell friends not to watch them. At ALL.
I remember listening to the Alan Colmes radio show and Alan had a caller that voiced a point that Alan couldn’t overcome. Alan just had his crew start singing so the callers words were drowned out
If I had a power to eject, I would toss out all of the MSNBC clan immediately... They serve no useful purpose other than build hate and divisiveness.....
The reason why MSDNC does it is because they are afraid that if minorities see the REAL Republican party, that minorities will see that they have been made to look like fools by the Dems for years. What have minorities been told for years and years, to only trust Democrats. MSDNC is terrified that if people see that the GOP is not the racist party, the Dems are, than people will leave the Dem party in droves. Dems just can’t admit THEY are the true racists
Doesn’t fit their narrative.
Who names their little boy Rachel?
They all do it. Makes me very angry at the media.
Today when the rules discussion came on, and Boehner and Sununu powered through rules to remove grassroots and Tea Party opposition, Fox immediately went to a commercial, and then to “The Five” with all audio and sound off. They stayed there until the role call started, and missed the first state, AL.
I thought, those SOBs. I never really expect honesty from the media but you always sort of hope.
How do you spell “SCREAM”!!!!!!!!!!!
Promoting and protecting the false narrative is what they’re all about.
They’re deliberately living a lie, no wonder they’re always so angry and defensive.
Yep! Gotta keep ‘em on “the plantation”. That’s where the $$$$$ and the votes are.
This sickens me beyond belief.
