When Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut, the MSM was outraged. President Barack Hussein Obama even got into the controversy, saying, “All decent folks can agree that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse.” Isn’t it rather ironic that Obama would use the words “decent folks?” In light of what Obama said about Limbaugh, how can he not disapprove and apologize for the actions of singer Cee Lo Green at his fundraising event on March 16, in Atlanta?
Singer Cee Lo Green dropped a few F-bombs and flipped the bird at a fundraiser for Obama. Green didn’t go for the radio-safe version of his hit “F**k You” and cursed multiple times during his performance. He also gave the middle finger while he was performing. Afterward, he addressed the donors by asking, “Ain’t that some s**t?” Green, responding to a Twitter user who called his behavior “disrespectful,” wrote, “All of you heard the song a thousand times so don’t get all saint on me.”
Instead of condemning Green for offensive vulgarity, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney sloughed it off to reporters by saying that Obama was a fan of Green and probably had some of his songs on his iPod. Does this mean that Obama is not “decent folks?” This shows that the MSM and liberal Democrats, including Obama, are quick to scream and condemn a conservative for calling someone a slut, while at the same time have no qualms with the use of profanity at a public presidential fundraiser. And where was the MSM while all of this was going on? I guess I was under the prehistoric rock to which Gloria Feldt, former CEO of Planned Parenthood, referred back in February, 2012, and missed the MSM reaction. I really need to get out more.
Here is yet another incident of liberal Democrats, the MSM, and even Obama weighing in before all the facts are known:
The killing of Trayvon Martin is tragic. But all the facts of the case don’t matter to liberal Democrats and self-appointed black leaders, who are using the tragedy to fire up their liberal base, especially among those in the Black community. Even Obama has gotten involved: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
Liberal Democrats and the MSM have made race the issue. Let me be specific. “Seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, dressed in a ‘hoodie’ sweatshirt, was shot dead a month ago in Sanford, Florida by a 28-year-old white Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer who said he was acting in self-defense.” Just what is a “white Hispanic?” Are Democrats and the MSM trying to say that a white man killed a black man?
Where were the liberal Democrats, the black leaders, and the MSM when Derrion Albert, a black 16 year old honor student was killed in Chicago in September, 2009? Albert was killed by other blacks, a victim in a fight between two rival black gangs. In October, 2009, E.W. Jackson wrote, “Yet in this case and others like it, there is a deafening silence from some of the biggest mouths in America. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Julian Bond, Louis Farrakhan and the Congressional Black Caucus see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil. When Prof. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. was arrested by a white police officer, President Barack Obama, without any facts, found it necessary to put in his two cents.” Having no facts about the Gates case did not bother Obama. Jackson continued, “The self-appointed, media supported ‘black leaders’ have not seen fit to hold a press conference or a rally supporting Derrion Albert and his family and condemning the perpetrators of this vicious crime. They have not called for witnesses to come forward.”
But the MSM has really given coverage to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton in the Trayvon Martin case. Jesse Jackson said, “Blacks are under attack.” Granted, but by whom? Black-on-black crime is the leading cause of death among black males ages 18 to 24. And Al Sharpton has also had something to say concerning the Trayvon Martin case. But Sharpton lost what little credibility he had when he spoke for Tawana Brawley.
This article is not about Barack Hussein Obama, Trayvon Martin, Cee Lo Green, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, or any one person. It is about how the MSM is quick to condemn anything a conservative says, yet lets any statement made by a liberal, no matter how demonstratively false it is, go unchallenged regardless of facts, and without uproar.
But that’s just my opinion.
