There’s no question that MSNBC omitted every single speech delivered by a minority speaker at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night.
Mia Love. Artur Davis. Ted Cruz. Brian Sandoval. Luce’ Vela Fortuño.
All noticeably glossed over.
None of these fine speakers were highlighted by the network recently famous for watching miserable hack Chris Matthews practically foam at the mouth in an effort to label the Republicans racist, and for Toure claiming that Romney is involved in the “niggerization” of President Obama.
When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.
MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black.
Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce’ Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech.
And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too.
Mia Love, a black candidate for Congress in Utah, was also ignored by MSNBC.
The only question is, did the network really intentionally cut away from minority speeches in an attempt to further paint the Republican party as a group of racist, white, old men? It’s certainly plausible, is it not?
By the way, here is Utah congressional candidate Mia Love, absolutely lighting it up and living up to her conservative rock star image last night at the RNC.
On Saturday, Massachusetts delegates met in their state’s Democrat party convention, and announced a requirement for attendance that can only be described as an active attempt to suppress minorities.
The statement below may come as a shock to our more sensitive readers, and we urge those with weaker stomachs to skip below to avoid a nauseating reaction.
If you are prepared for the vile racism that is to follow, please proceed…
Page 14 of the Delegate’s Guide to the Massachusetts Democrat Convention reads, and we quote:
We apologize to our readers for having to read such strong racially charged language. In the interest of accuracy however, the statement needed to be printed in its entirety.
That said, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and Eric Holder, the most vociferous of the groups that oppose photo identification on the grounds that it racially discriminates, will certainly take umbrage to such a requirement.
Earlier this year the CBC announced on the house floor that “voter ID laws popping up around the country are aimed at dissuading minority voters from voting”. If that is the case, then the Democrats are clearly trying to dissuade minorities from attending their convention.
Just this past week, Holder backed up the charges of photo ID requirements as racist.
On Wednesday, Holder told a gathering of the Congressional Black Caucus that “both overt and subtle forms of discrimination remain all too common and have not yet been relegated to the pages of history.”
“If a state passes a new voting law and meets its burden of showing that the law is not discriminatory, we will follow the law and will approve that change. … When a jurisdiction fails to meet its burden in proving that a voting change will not have a racially discriminatory effect, we will object, as we have in 15 different cases.”
Critics complain that Holder is taking an unabashedly, and unethically, political stance against voter ID laws.
Will Holder object in this case? With his having drawn a line in the sand, it is shocking to see his own party resort to such an ‘overt form of discrimination’.
The Congressional Black Caucus on Monday night took to the House floor to charge that voter ID laws popping up around the country are aimed at dissuading minority voters from voting, and making it harder for President Obama to win re-election.
Wouldn’t IDs for SAT testing then dissuade minority students? Oh those racist educators.
Mental Recession reader Brian states that, “Ironically, students are one of the groups mentioned when it comes to not having the ID required to vote.”
But progressives clearly aren’t actually concerned about identification being used as a racist tool, they’re only concerned about using the perception of racism as a tool.
I am not sure if the irony hammer hits harder than it does when people yell out loud about photo ID for voting, and whisper about it for taking the SATs…
Anyway, via CBS News:
Students taking college entrance exams this fall will have to submit photo IDs with their applications — a key security upgrade following a widespread cheating scandal at a number of high schools on New York’s Long Island, a prosecutor and testing officials announced Tuesday…
… The new testing requirements include making students upload a photograph of themselves when they register for the SAT or ACT. Those unable to upload a photo will be permitted to mail in a photo, which will be scanned by the testing agency.
Then, an admission ticket into the testing site, containing the scanned photo, will be mailed to the student.
The photo will not only be printed on the admission ticket, but on the test site roster, and can be checked against the photo ID a student provides at the test center. That photo will be attached to students’ scores as they are reported to high schools and colleges.
Other changes include checking student IDs more frequently at test centers; IDs will be checked when students enter a test site, and whenever they re-enter the test room after breaks, and again when the answer sheets are collected.
