I heard about this on the Quinn (www.warroom.com) in morning show (104.7 FM Pittsburgh 0600-0900 mon-fri) and couldn’t believe it.
I then posted it on facebook and my “progressive” friends went bonkers.
2:08 into the clip bradlee (evidently drunk) starts his comments.
At 2:28 he makes the comment that Mr. Cain should “run for the roundhouse”..a direct reference to the place (the roundhouse) in Harpers Ferry that runaway slaves “ran” to in escaping their masters wrath during the abolishionist movement.
This clip needs to be shared far and wide..who are the racists now msm (garafolo, et. al.)…..hmmmm
So, for the last handful of naive people whose sense of history is shaped by the evening news, the Biography Channel and old LIFE magazines, let’s review:
Two of the liberal heroes of Watergate — a scandal that brought down a President and traumatized a generation — are a couple of rich, white, drunken, racist jerks who make “inappropriate gestures” to young women and — worst of all — possess absolutely no sense of irony.
“Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”
Jim Treacher, in the comments: I’m looking for a citation on this and can’t find one…
Me too, so the final story may yet be written on this one.
However, in this case I am going to invoke the Left’s First Rule of Political Correctness:
If the listener believes, either legitimately or otherwise, that a statement contains a racist slur, no other proof shall be necessary.
On the topic of rich white liberal men, race, and “inappropriate gestures” that make people “feel uncomfortable”…
I forced myself to watch that video of Michael Moore vs the reporter who dared ask him a challenging question.
Until last night, I had no idea that:
a) the reporter was black, and
b) Michael Moore — as Judge Judy would say — “put his hands on him.”
