An amazing sequence of events took place in the last hour that might have an incredible impact.

By now you’ve heard the Mike Pezzano stomping incident at the debate last night. Joe Scarborough being a reasonable man tweeted this:

Joe Objects to the stomping

Being a rather snarky fellow I answered thus:

Ken Gladney Snark

Joe being a reasonable person (no matter what some people say) was Gobsmacked!

The light dawns! Joe asks Gladney questions

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:

and

and

and

and

My own links and mentions of the Gladney story

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.

And here is Instapundit’s archives, and Gateway Pundit’s it’s a Gladney palooza.

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.

    btw, I wish I had the $$$ to hit DaTipJar – partly because you’re also a fan of Doctor Who :-) – but it’s tough here as well, so it looks like my generosity will have to wait a bit. What did you think of the new Sherlock?

    Hopefully the ignorance was genuine.

    Wow. This was hilarious to me. His response (incredulous? shock? disbelief?) was as if you had informed him that extraterrestrials had publicly landed on the White House lawn 6 months ago and nobody had told him about it. (Of course, if they were Conservative extraterrestrials, he really might never have known about it.)

    Unless I missed it, he ignored Gladney on MJ today, but to their credit they didn’t go wall-to-wall with disproportionate coverage the Kentucky incident.
