…and briefly commented on it.

They did not show the RedState video. My son was going on about the “foot stomp” until I showed him the video

and asked what the secret service would have done if it was Obama’s car as Red State says:

So please, condemn head-stomping. Condemn violence. But don’t let the media and the left create a fiction of violent mobs of right-wingers. They’ve been pitching that line since the health care town hall meetings last summer. It has yet to be true.

That well known radical Ann Althouse (who voted for a certain sitting president) says this:

3. The MoveOn.org woman came to the event to create an incident and caused the Ron Paul’s supporters to worry about his safety, so that violent incident was prompted by the urge to defend, in which case even that one incident isn’t a data point that fits the gapingly empty template.

4. “A person in a disguise, carrying a sign from a radical organization, tries to push through the crowd to hand a political opponent an unknown object. What would the Secret Service have done to her?”
Indeed!

And Legal Insurrection says this:

My instincts also tell me also that the criminal charges against the “stomper” will not stick because he will claim (as he has) that he viewed Valle as a threat to Paul, and that he was trying to keep her down until the police could arrive.

Doug Ross plays stop the film and Gateway reports that the press has been so good for the left they they’ve decided to go long on charging candidates.

Ed Driscoll’s post is “Shhh No one tell MSNBC” and apparently nobody has.

In fairness they haven’t made a big fuss that I saw, but giving the bit without the context reinforces a false narrative. I’ve defended Morning Joe in general and Joe Scarborough when fellow conservatives have hit, because I maintain that other than blind spots on Palin and Afghanistan he’s not bad. I expect him to come through and point out the context and at least mention the media double standard.

Bottom line, the full story is available online, MSNBC in general and Morning Joe in particular has as much excuse for ignoring it as the do for ignoring the Ken Gladney story.

There are two shows before election day. I’m hoping my faith is not misplaced.

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:

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.

…after all an NAACP leader has declared he is not black enough.

I guess when the NAACP said they “investigate all written complaints filed with us, regardless of the complainant’s ideology.” they must have been speaking metaphorically.

So remember white racists. The NAACP at a public event has now declared, It is ok to call black men Niggers and beat them on video, as long as you beat the right black people. Maybe they will give out certificates that a particular black man is certified “not black enough” to warrant protection? I wonder if the New Black Panther party will be in charge of giving them out?

If these were tea party guys it would be all over the place, but as you can see the memeorandum cupboard is nearly bare.

Absolutely disgusting, absolutely despicable. absolutely dishonorable, absolutely liberalism.

on a roll in New Orleans:

A Republican activist and her boyfriend were savagely beaten in New Orleans on Friday for wearing Sarah Palin pins,.

Now the question becomes will the media report on it? I’m sure they will decline, after all they don’t want to seem racist. Since they ignored a black conservative being beaten (Mr. Gladney) they don’t want to have a double standard just because one of the conservative victims this time is an attractive white woman.

Update: Michelle Reports there were no pins involved. Mea Culpa I didn’t make the call that she did.
