Mia Love better rethink her loyalties. I have to admit I'm surprised the GOP is making her a big deal. It's like they're saying, "we're not racist, here's this black woman who agrees with us!"

Listening to Mia, I think she made up her own mind all by herself, and is kicking a*s in the meantime.

I also found this interesting, and wonder as MSNBC having all the virtues of perfect equilibrium in their reporting why are they refusing to show all speakers at the RNC Convention.

You don't think they have an agenda, or are actually deep seated latent racists themselves, do you?

MSNBC Refuses to Cover Minority Speeches
Posted by WalterStark on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 9:31 AM


There were some outstanding and energetic speakers at the RNC Convention on Tuesday. But, if you were watching them on MSNBC you would have missed half the line-up. The impressive speeches given by Mia Love, Ted Cruz, and Artur Davis were conveniently removed from MSNBC’s televised coverage. Why? They’re minorities.

So, Chris Matthews is not alone in his inability to see the world though anything other than a black and white prism, claiming basic subjects like food stamps is somehow akin to a dog whistle designed to get white people into a racist tizzy. His employer, MSNBC, is also apparently hyper-focused on the color of people’s skin.

The Daily Caller noticed MSNBC’s blatantly spotty coverage,

One of the left’s favorite attacks on the Republican Party is that it is the party of old white people, devoid of diversity and probably racist.

If you were watching MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday night, you might believe those assertions, since missing from the coverage was nearly every ethnic minority that spoke during Tuesday’s festivities.

In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.

Throughout this convention, Matthews has accused the Republicans of playing dog-whistle racist politics while on scene in Tampa. It isn’t clear, however, if Matthews will hurl accusations of racism at Davis, Love or Cruz for speeches his network failed to broadcast.

The seeming contradiction between Chris Matthews’ outrage against perceived racism and the network’s actual racism makes perfect sense if you understand Statists. They care only about winning elections and they use minorities in whatever capacity they deem necessary to achieve that goal. It’s a form of racism much more deviant than the type they accuse the right of harboring.

You'd be hard pressed to find anyone in here that doesn't recognize MSNBC's bias. But that IS the difference, every poster from "little San Francisco" recognizes, admits, and probably watches very little MSNBC. I can't say the same about Fox and it's viewers

that's what i've never understood. it's always "oh yeah? well...msnbc is biased!" well yeah, no one's ever said it isn't. some lefties don't like watching it for that very reason. but supporters of fox news won't admit in that same breath that fox news is just as biased, except it's even worse because they pretend they aren't.

if you don't think stupid things, you probaby won't say them, FB em , or tweet them.

Yahoo! fires reporter after comment about Romney

Of course most of us do think some stupid things, we just need to have the good sense not to share them, and even better identify them and discard them, I am constantly reviewing my opinions and do find ones that can be discarded

For those of you that aren't watching but just responding to the Left's dog whistles.

Artur Davis provides my favorite quote from Night One:

Quote:
This sweet, blessed, God-inspired place called America is a champion that has absorbed some blows.

But while we bend, we don't break.

This is no dark hour; this is the dawn before we remember who we are.

I remember who we are just fine, even with Obama as President !

That sounds like some schmaltz straight out of Twilight, all we need are the long silent blank stares. Breaking dawn.

Yeah, it's about time the US gave itself a pat on the back.

Herman Cain: ‘I’d probably be the nominee’ - Kevin Robillard and Kevin Cirilli - POLITICO.com

Good luck on the investigation Herman. Maybe you'll find Nicole's real murderer as well.

He'd probably be the nominee...

And pretty much what I was thinking. Can you say string of cliches? But your analogy was spot on. I can just see that scene.
