An amazing sequence of events took place in the last hour that might have an incredible impact.
Being a rather snarky fellow I answered thus:
Joe being a reasonable person (no matter what some people say) was Gobsmacked!
The fact is the right side of the blogosphere has known and written about this for almost a year, but the MSM never touched it. Why, because I suspect news directors ignored it knowing what the beating of a black tea party person at a rally by a White supporter of the president during the healthcare debate would do. So I followed up a bunch of tweets including:
Lets quote RCP:
Last week, a black gentleman named Kenneth Gladney went to a town-hall meeting hosted by Rep. Russ Carnahan, Missouri Democrat. While passing out “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, he was viciously attacked by Service Employees International Union (SEIU) members. One called him a “nigger.”
These union thugs were directed by the White House to go to the protests and “punch back twice as hard.” And they did.
While the attack was captured on video and is available on YouTube, Mr. Gladney’s horrifying story is absent from MSNBC’s 24/7 media cycle. Mr. Krugman has yet to write about it. And Mr. Cooper has yet to condemn the attack.
Bottom line is this. Before today Joe Scarborough had no idea about the Ken Gladney case. Now he does.
What if anything he chooses to DO with this information will say an awful lot about the MSM.
