The other day I was talking to someone, and I said that the media had edited the clip from Rand Paul to make it seem that he supported businesses that don’t want to serve black people. I had made a slight mistake in the whole thing (the video was not edited, the transcript just added one word that wasn’t there, obviously adding a yes when someone means no is perfectly valid), and someone (who fanatically supports Obama) who overheard the conversation chased me down to demand that I “prove” my position, because MSNBC and the New York Times had reported differently. Also he falsly attributed to me statements that I didn’t make, because I am not in favor of people who falsify information, but that doesn’t stop people who believe the ends justify the means from attributing to others what they themselves might be doing.
Real Clear Politics had written an article about this (link), and heres is the video that it was based on
And the transcript:
MADDOW: Do you think that a private business has the right to say we
don‘t serve black people?
PAUL: Yes. I‘m not in favor of any discrimination of any form. I
would never belong to any club that excluded anybody for race. We still do
have private clubs in America that can discriminate based on race.
The New York times also reported
Asked by Ms. Maddow if a private business had the right to refuse to serve black people, Mr. Paul replied, “Yes.”
Afterwards the Shirley Sherrod (Huffington post version) incident was brought up, not by me, but by the well informed individual who said that I compared the Rand Paul incident to the video editing that led to the firing of “women” at the USDA, because I am only aware of one video, and only the one woman got fired.
The problem wasn’t that the video was edited and posted on a web site that everyone knows likes to mislead (okay so what’s the difference between that and MSNBC, Fox, The New York Times, et al.), but rather that the NAACP and the USDA forced this woman out without letting her tell her side of the story. The people at fault here is not some guy who got a video from someone else, but rather the people who rather than hearing both sides, just viciously attack a woman, who while I might have numerous disagreements with her on other issues, was wronged by the government, and the Obama Administration specifically.
One set of statements was taken out of context and then forwarded on to a marginal website which posted the edited video that they had gotten, the other was reported as fact in major media, and originated as fact from major media. Not that I had even brought up the other video at all, it was interjected that to deflect from the obvious manipulation that MSNBC/New York Times engaged in.
Of course, the New York Times and MSNBC can make up whatever stories they want, and you are welcome to defend them. I am not arguing that either issues are correct, in fact the one has nothing to do with the other as far as I can see, but you are welcome to see conspiracies everywhere.
But the real news item should be how the United States government can justify condeming people without trial, and sad to say, Shirley Sherrod is just the tip of the iceberg, of course though Obama is the “Peace Prize President”, so what has this Prince of Peace wrought?
Apparently it is now perfectly acceptable for the President of the United States can announce that he is going to kill Americans without a trial, whereever they might be in the world just because he says so. Hurray, I am so glad we don’t have a king who can just make rulings and they are law. That’s so old fashioned, now we are just too stupid to realize that it’s all a sham, so they just rotate out one idiot for another puppet and the masses think they are getting change and hope.
Also it seems that that place in Cuba, Guantanamo Bay, is vital to keep as a prison as well, so much for the close Gitmo rhetoric of the current chief puppet of the United States, then again, we must all follow the wild dictates.
Attorneys are thrown in jail for over 500 days for actually upholding the constitution (no really read for yourself and make up your own mind).
It seems that “Global Warming” has a new name now by Chief Scientific Advisor of the Obama Administration. For those of you who have been asleep, Global Warming was replaced by Global Climate Change and as of this week “Global Climate Disruption” is the new terminology, anyone who still believes in Global Warming is an idiot, because as Al Gore said about Global Warming, “the science is settled”, too bad it was the exact opposite of what we were told, but while BP was pushing Global <term of the week>, someone did something that may have been much worse.
BP had a catostrophic failure of an Oil Platform, if you haven’t heard of it, you are a complete moron, because it’s been in the news for a long time, and not just because Obama seemed to be on vacation most of the time while the crisis was unfolding, and the Gulf of Mexico was basically rendered a toxic dump.
But I see that the biggest new item is none of these things, rather it’s whether some woman running for Senator in a tiny state the Bidens used to control (in my opinion, I have no direct evidence to prove this at this time), doesn’t like wiccans, or witchcraft or stinky feet. In my opinion whatever they are trying to sell people on is not what is important, they’d be talking about how Obama’s dog has fleas if there was an asteroid the size of the moon heading towards, earth and most people wouldn’t even notice the asteroid until too late, decrying anyone who thinks that a dog with fleas is not a real story, and that you are just a conspiracy nut.
