For years there has been a concerted effort by left leaning progressive Democrats to create a narrative that anyone who is a Republican, or anyone who leans right, or is conservative is a racist, anti-woman, anti-immigrant, and anti-everything, except old white men. The media has been complicit in this vision quest through either their emphasis on certain race issues, or their total lack of emphasis on race issues that do not support the false narrative.
The latest version of pushing a false narrative can be found in Nevada, and in California. Cliven Bundy took a stand against government overreach, and to distract from the actual issue, media outlets put out a deceptively edited video of some comments made by him.
You can see his complete comments, and the edited version here Via Black and Right:
Not only did the media paint this man as a racist, they effectively tied his comments to conservatives across the spectrum. They were so successful, that many who supported his actions, or spoke out against the overly aggressive actions of the government spent the day reeling back in their support because of the deceptive picture portrayed by the left.
Some of the headlines on Bundy’s comments…
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who challenged a federal agency in a land dispute, says he wonders if black people on government assistance “were better off as slaves.” Republicans, who championed his cause against big government, are now condemning his comments. CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes reports.
GOP Scrambles to Condemn Rancher’s Remarks on Race
Offering words of encouragement for a rancher leading an armed standoff against federal rangers turns out to be not so great of a political move – especially when the rancher in question muses publicly about the benefits of slavery.
Republicans – including possible 2016 candidate Rand Paul — are scrambling to distance themselves from defiant Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy after he made startling comments about slavery and African-Americans in a New York Times article published Wednesday night.
A Nevada rancher who became a conservative folk hero for standing up to the government in a fight over grazing rights lost some of his staunch defenders Thursday after wondering aloud whether blacks might have had it better under slavery.
Article after article linking Cliven Bundy, not his actions to protect what he thinks are his rights, but his out of context comments to republicans and conservatives. Fast forward a week, and the entire focus shifts. Donald Sterling and his racist comments, not taken out of context, and not a mention of political party or how it might damage the ideology he has supported, to include the NAACP, who was going to honor him with a lifetime achievement award.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced Tuesday that Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life from any association with the NBA and the Clippers and fined $2.5 million in the wake of racist comments by Sterling that were made public over the weekend.
“We stand together in condemning Mr. Sterling’s views,” Silver said. “They simply have no place in the NBA.”
More Sterling tape: ‘Do I make the game or do (blacks) make the game?’
…Sterling has been under fire over the weekend since the tape was first leaked Saturday. The NBA has said it’s investigating the matter, while players from Kobe Bryant to Magic Johnson to LeBron James have spoken out on the matter. President Obama weighed in Sunday.
Commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday that Sterling will not attend Game 4 between the Clippers and Warriors on Sunday.
An audio recording purportedly of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racist remarks to his girlfriend is being investigated by the NBA.
In the recording, the man believed to be Sterling questions his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, about her association with minorities. TMZ reports that Stiviano, who is black and Mexican, posted a picture of her with Magic Johnson on Instagram, a photo that has since been removed.
The Administration, the progressive left, and the media would like nothing better than to paint every conservative, every Republican, every single person who does not support them as a racist, woman hating, homophobe who would like nothing more than to take this country back 100 years.
The left has continually ignored actual racism to gin up anger and false accusations.
Here are some of the comments that have received the liberal stamp of approval:
“(Obama’s) a nice person, he’s very articulate this is what’s been used against him, but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic”
“White folks was in the caves while we [blacks] was building empires … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was … we taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
“A few years ago, (Barack Obama) would have been getting us coffee.”
Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
“Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.”
“There’s white racist DNA running through the synapses of his or her brain tissue. They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life.”
“You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian Accent.”
“I give interracial couples a look. Daggers. They get uncomfortable when they see me on the street.”
“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go.”
Eric Holder once said we as a nation were cowards on race. If he was right, it is because we refuse to address all racism, in every form.
