Saturday Night Card Game (How many pours of MSNBC can you withstand?)
Because you have been bad, and because I want to inflict maximum pain, you must watch all 12 minutes of this video in which Lawrence “Herman Cain didn’t know how to be black” O’Donnell leads a panel of race card players attacking Mitt Romney’s speech to the NAACP.
This is the Saturday Night Card Game equivalent of waterboarding, race card-boarding
Okay, okay. Have some humanity, you say.
Your tolerance for pain is low, so we will do only two pours of MNSBC on your head.
First, guest Mark Thompson of SiriusXM radio’s “Keeping it Plain” suggests that Romney referring to a black supporter as part of his “kitchen cabinet” was a racist signal to whites. O’Donnell nods his head in agreement, and then suggests that Romney wanted to be booed at least three time to play to certain “racist precincts.” Goldie Taylor then agrees too.

Had enough? I’m not done with you.
Second, now watch as Toure repeats the same theme:
Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
I’ll stop. Because no one can withstand more than two pours of MSNBC.
Anything more would consitute a crime against humanity.
But beware, when you least expect it I may have one of my drones drop Ed Schultz on your head.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
How low can they go? This week has been a year of race cards all rolled into one, shame on them, and shame on the President for allowing it. We have serious work to counter attack.
Just cancelled my Sirius account and told them why….
This is bad, not because it makes Romney look like a Racist. Instead, it’s bad because in the back of your mind you start thinking, after watching nonsense like this, “Hmmmm, apparently racism isn’t that bad.”
As Dinish D’Zousa once said to a guy he was debating with, “If you keep calling me Hitler, you’re going to give Hitler a good name.”
That’s so true. Before this is over “racism” will be cast as virtue rather than vice.
Hahaha! Alinsky’s Rule No. 11 – keep pounding a negative until it turns into a positive (I paraphrase).
Out-Alinsky-ing the Alinsky-ites?!?! Priceless.
Have they for one millisecond considered the possibility that Romney is honest, and is presenting his unvarnished positions? That Romney believes that his positions will be good for all Americans, not hyphenated Americans? Have considered that while it is an 0bama/Democratic/progressive/socialist/liar habit to tell lies to this group, and different lies to that group, that Romney rolls with the truth? No. Racist can only see racism.
Some racist said we voted for 0bama out of our racist-guilt past. Hell, Black people who vote for 0bama because his Black are just proud of their race. White people who vote for him because he’s Black* are guilty racists, and White who vote against him for any reason are racists. Can we vote against him because he is a communist-Muslim? (That’s a truly discordant position!)
Condi may be a wonderful person. But she endorsed him, I believe, because 0bama is sorta Black. She didn’t need to endorse 0bama if McCain was too much of a disappointment. As far as I’m concerned Condi will sell me, a White guy, out any chance she gets. I don’t trust her.
*0bama may have African heritage in his past, but not until college did he try to develop his African heritage.
Condi never endorsed Obama.
Right you are. My bad. Did she ever endorse McCain? No, she said he was the Republican nominee, and she was a Republican. Did she gush all over his election, and go on about how proud she was that an African-American won the Presidency, and she was all goo-goo eyes about 0bama? Yes.
What kind of expert on the Soviet Union would not recognize him as a Marxist before the election? Palin says Condi would be fine, except for that whole mildly supporting abortion and Affirmative-Action thing.
0bama frequently makes me feel like I could vote for Romney with a clear conscience. Then he gets all wobbly.
This is as bad as anything I have EVER heard on MSNBC. Romeny is NOT honest. Romney has PROVEN he is NOT honest, and Romney has spent the last several DECADES PROVING he has no “unvarnished positions!”
Romney HAS NO CORE PRINCIPLES other than that which gets Mitt what Mitt wants next…
Get over it already. Romney is the nominee. We’re stuck with him. We must defend him the way the Clintonistas defended Obama after that extraordinarily ugly primary process.
Or perhaps you’d rather 4 more years of Obama? Or, possibly President-for-Life-by-Executive-Order Obama…
By the way, I’m not a Romneybot. I sent lots of nasty emails to Rush Limbaugh for his attacks on Gingrich, and voted for Newt in California’s June 5 primary.
Dear, dear CalMark,
YOU are stuck with Romney. I never had any intention of voting for the first guy who designed and implemented Obamacare.
YOU may feel compelled to defend the indefensible clod who refuses to defend himself and has only EVER attacked other Republicans and especially Conservatives. I have no such compulsion.
Romney is A nominee and certainly not THE nominee.
I don’t vote for progressives pretending to be anything but progressives. I don’t vote for people who trashed Reagan. I don’t vote for people with no core principles.
And I am certainly not going to participate in the beatification of Romney as a conservative saint, nor sit by idly while others attempt to do so. Good luck with that.
The Establishment GOP has once again manipulated the primary process, more blatantly than EVER, and gotten what they wanted.
Once again, I will let the Establishment GOP know that I won’t meekly fall in line when they manipulate the process.
I’ll be voting for the Constitution Party AGAIN because they are the ONLY actual conservatives left in the race.
Sorry, I got carried away in railing against the liberals. You’re right. There is hardly a position held by the Democratic Left that Romney hasn’t already held.
Sununu is the fellow who recommended Souter to Reagan, and Sununu is tight with Romney. Romney is GOPEstablishment, and is not interested in conservative principles.
Groucho Marx: “These are my principles, and if you don’t like them I’ve got others.”
Absolution is granted to those who truly repent. Go forth in peace and Romney no more.
“I didn’t get my nominee, so I’m gonna undermine the GOP!” Imitating the Establishment GOP tantrum when the candidate isn’t to their liking. So to protest the Establishment GOP, you’re going (mis)behave just like them! Bravo!
It won’t take very many people like you to hand the election to Obama. But that’s doesn’t matter. No, it’s the principle of the thing, darn it!
But hey, you’ll get warm fuzzies for “standing up” and “making your voice heard” and “taking a stand.” Oh, it’ll make you feel oh-so important and noble.
And that’s the important thing. Feeling good and noble and important. Feeling. Regardless of real-world consequences. In other words, what liberals do.
Dear, misguided CalMark. Your “solution” to the problem of lefty progressives is to vote for lefty progressives who have led this country over the brink and into economic, cultural, social and political destruction? Brilliant!
Romney promises says he won’t destroy the nation quite as fast as the other guy. Frankly, we all know he is lying. But you demand we all join you as we follow him over the cliff.Good move!
But instead of recognizing the reasonable logic of NOT voting for lefty progressives, you get angry with me because you have chosen to leap over the cliff and evidently hate to do it alone.
The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome. It should be clear now. The solution to the nation’s problem is to stop voting for lefty progressives.
Another example, which comes from a cartoon “The Incredibles”. The son is upset because he’s forced not to use his powers of speed. He complains that he just “wants to be special” and his parents tell him, “Everyone is special.” and he tells his parents, “If everyone is special, then no one is special.”
If everyone is a Racist, then no one is a Racist.
Race realism is a necessary feature of tribal survival, as in cultural survival. The race card is played to dismiss the importance of white culture, to have us all looking at our navels to see whether we are not conforming to the multiculturalist ethos.
If everyone is “special” then no one is special; one culture is just as good as any other, and therefore one’s own culture is not worthy of perpetuating, much less protecting — especially if you’re a product of white, anglo-saxon culture.
Tell that to the Japanese. Tell that to Muslims. Meanwhile, the West commits cultural suicide in the name of fairness and tolerance. To hell with that! To hell with that!!
Obama and much of the world are “anti-colonialist”. But Obama also spent 20 years with Rev. Wright in a Black (supremacy) theology (racist) church. The real issue is whether successful people that were mostly white must now surrender to a racist mulit-culti, diversity hire, anything BUT what has worked … environment.
The left is betting that enough have surrendered to the anti-white racism that they will follow Obama into his Marxist world. “Don’t go gentle into that good night … rage against the dying of the light” 🙂
These pundits have nothing intelligent to say. They need to be careful. Some of us will become bigoted against stupid people.
Was thinking the very same thing. Here are a bunch of pathetic do-nothings sitting around – economic failures, really, if you consider their viewer ratings – desperately trying to think up enough things to say that could justify their continued paychecks. Living proof videocasting is third rate news/commentary reporting. Can’t wait for CNN to “out-left” them and take away an even wider slice of their viewing “pie”.
“Some of us will become bigoted against stupid people.”
Don’t be too hard on yourself for being bigoted against stupid people. Whereas racism is clumping people together without regard to individual differences, people demonstrate their qualifications for the classification of stupid. If you weren’t bigoted against stupid people, then you would be, well, there is not beating around the bush here, you would be stupid. That doesn’t mean stupids don’t deserve some pity. Just don’t trust them with your retirement investments.

First time in my life I ever witnessed a real, live Circle-Jerk. Couldn’t tell though, if they were stroking themselves or each other.
Were the magnifying glasses out?
I’ve been looking for that infamous Republican “codebook” of racial “terms” since the 70’s. What’s really weird about the search is that the only people who are familiar with this “codebook” turn out to be Democrats. You really have to wonder who are the real racists .. or do we ?
After watching those clips, all those of you who believe there are limits to insanity and damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don’t disingenuous absurdity … raise your hands.
In the previous post today about meeting the Professor and his wife, what you see is actually the final, heavily-edited final version.
My original comment was even longer! But, I thought, this might seem a tad bit effusive. One thing I cut out was, while I was driving the Professor and Mrs. Jacobson to see the beach, I actually thought to myself,
“What if I were a lefty, and right now I was showing Ed Schultz and his wife around … or Keith Olbermann and his girlfriend around?”
I thought to myself, “Right now I’d probably be thinking, I agree with these people on political issues … but oh man do I want to drop them off somewhere and get away from them!!”
Can you imagine having dinner with these MSNBC people? I’d rather be waterboarded while being forced to watch those clips over and over. Egad.
So seeing these clips made me chuckle. Does anybody think the people in these clip are normal??
LukeHandCool (who, luckily, is commenting on one of his lesser effusive days. And who wondered while on a walk today, wouldn’t it be funny if the Professor and Mrs. Jacobson disliked effusiveness the way I like normalcy?)
Isn’t it about time the Black community started to march against patronizing?
The Black community is so self conscious they rarely call each other out in public over something serious like this. The got on Cosby’s case when he made comments about men being better fathers.
Off topic, but has anyone noticed that MichelleMalkin.com now links to Twitchy.com 8 or 9 times out of 10 in her “Buzzworthy” links to other blogs? She used to link to other sites but is now almost exclusively linking to her other site. I find that sort of puts me off…
Malkin doesn’t select those links. They’re determined by an algorithm that was written for the site a while back–well before Twitchy came along, if I recall correctly:
Thanks. Interesting article. But notice the “Buzzworthy” list on your link doesn’t match the list on MM.com. So this implies that each site chooses some factors that influence the selection.
Of course, perhaps the formula is simply weighted too heavily on a single factor like “re-tweets.”
Either way, thanks again. I just don’t find Twitchy as interesting as the links the Good Professor provides…
The Buzzworthy list at the link is an image (just to show what it looks like, I suppose), so it wouldn’t match up now. I think you’re right that the Twitchy links probably come up a lot because Twitter is so heavily weighted in the equation, given Digg’s current disuse.
You are right. I floated the mouse over it and assumed it was multiple links to sites. But when I went back to it again I saw that it was an image.
Toure, that’s French for turd!
Now I don’t need to spend the time searching Urban Racist Dictionary.
It’s French and therefore cannot be urbane or racist. The term you’re looking for is chique.
I always suspected he was a turd.
He acts like a turd all the time. If the name fits …
Professor: Twitter Hashtag alert!!! #WhatObamaTaughtMe

So, the Cherokee may have practiced GENOCIDE on the true Native Americans!
Will Lizzie Warren now deny the genocide, admit she comes from a long line of GENOCIDAL interlopers, or confess she isn’t a Cherokee/Delaware?
This is like CSI meets “Mein Kampf!”
The real irony here is that Lizzie Warren may be “hoist with her own ‘pre-turd.'”
Irony can be so ironic sometimes…
I think all of this just shows how badly Romney rattled them with his speech. Unlike past Republicans, Romney didn’t go in tugging his forelock and apologizing for trumped-up Republican “sins” against minorities. I think that whole real equality thing scared the heck out of them.
As opposed to “W” about 10 years ago, along the lines of “I understand why you hate Republicans, and I don’t blame you!” Or McCain’s campaign speech for Obama in 2008.
Bottom line: the more flak you’re taking, the closer you are to the target!
How about Bob Dole, the year after, making a comment using “spades”? Something like ‘you gave it to us in spades’.
But does Romney understand why Romney hates Republicans?
Does Bush understand why Romney hates Republicans?
Does Bob Dole grow pineapples in his back yard?
Right, now you’re hittin’ the mark
Ya know, how dare Romney speak to them as equals, as adults who can handle the truth without pandering to sensibilities.
There are no men’s or women’s rights, no black or white rights or any other group rights.
These folks like O’Donnell don’t want equality, they want gov’t to secure special rights, which on its face is racism.
“I really feel that it is [demeaning] to me to think that I need some individual to ‘justify’ me and my existence.
Amazing in 30 seconds they went from he did it to appeal to racists, to he did it to capture ‘racist precincts’. (There are whole Precincts of voters in this country that are racist?) Then finally she says “He’s talking to his base, he still has to convince a large number of conservative voters that he’s one of them.” So did she just make the sweeping statement that the majority of conservative voters are racist? I’m starting to think these people have some sorts of acute paranoia where the see racists behind every tree.
There’s no way in hell I could watch the 12 minute video.
I won’t even view a 12 second clip. I don’t need or want to hear what they say. I try not to intentionally piss myself off if I can help it.
So I’m not commenting on what was said on the video, just inferring that I already know what was said without even watching.
Leftists are very predictable.

Voting for Romney is not an endorsement of Romney or his ideas. It’s because he’s not Obama, who is fast becoming a dictator. What part of that do you not understand? Or would you rather live under a Dear Leader?
Besides, if Romney gets elected, and the Tea Parties continue to gain power and influence, there will be pressure on him to play ball. If he doesn’t, Romney might be dumped in ’16.
Remember Ross Perot in ’92 and ’96? A bunch of people like you “made their voices heard” by voting for that narcissistic little clown, handing both elections to Bill Clinton, who never got a majority. In ’92, he wasn’t even close. Nothing changed in the GOP. In fact, soon after that, they ran off Newt Gingrich, with whom they were actually WINNING.
The corrupt dinosaurs have been in power a long time. they are entrenched. We won’t displace them overnight. Electing Romney would buy us time.
You live in the fantasy world of a 20-year-old, where idealistic actions lead to desired results as night follows day. It doesn’t work that way. Grow up.
In reply to WarEagle82 who thinks conservatives supporting Romney are abetting the destruction of America.
As opposed to noble, morally courageous people like him who are supporting some no-hoper Third Party that might siphon off enough votes to re-elect Obama.
Congratulations! I don’t think I have EVER heard LoTE explained less rationally or less effectively.
You keep voting for lefty progressives because the promise they aren’t as bad as the other guys but I am the problem! Brilliant!
This is the kind of reasoning one expects from people get their degrees from K-Mart or the University of Alabama (which may in fact be accredited by the same organization).
I am moved to howls of derisive laughter by your posts. Keep it up. I could use a good laugh now and again…
So he links a Monty Python clip as commentary on my post.
I say again:
You live in the fantasy world of a 20-year-old…Grow up.
Monty Python is obviously too intellectual for you. I didn’t think you’d have a remote chance of understanding anything else. Turns out I was right.
In your world, you get rid of lefty socialists by voting for lefty socialists. I don’t even want to know what world you live in.
How about you take ALL your medications today and go back to your “The Simpsons” marathon. Bart misses you…
Sorry but no. We have rules in this house. Get out! BANG! Or I’ll shoot! BANG!
