Well well well....of all things to learn today.
Makes me shiver just thinking about it, and re-enforces my complete surety that Fixed News is a CIA Operation Mockingbird psy-op.
Turns out that Roger Ailes, the head of Fixed News worked with Lee Atwater to put together the Willie Horton ad campaign that wrecked Michael Dukakis's run for President.
You see, Dukakis had a 17 point lead over ElBushbo the 1st, and they needed something to bring him down fast.
Ahhhh-racial fear and hatred...the old standby. (Muffy used it recently against gv Patrick too btw.)
So, in steps Lee Atwater and good ole Roger Aisles, now head of Fox News channel.
Making Dukakis out to be soft on crime using a black convict as bait to drill the fear into people's heads...and you must rememebr that picture? WOW...pure unadulterated scummy political manuevering.
Flash to now!
Black woman fired for alleged racial comments she made 24 YEARS ago....geuss who "outed" her? Brett Breithbart, of ACORN fame!!!! I am not makng this up. He's a Fox operative.
That "whistleblower" who "outed" the Black Panthers from 2008....worked for Bush and the Republican National Committee.
And of course, Beckles himself who twisted the meaning of a statement made years ago to bring down the career of a man whom he had a grudge against.
And Now we have Beckles putting himself out as the new Martin Luther King, at the same time he calls President Obama a racist!!!
You cannot make this stuff up, and you cannot let it go unchallenged!!
The GOP new strategy, as I see it: Black people hate you white people. Be afraid for your lives.
Oh, and vote Republican....to save you from the racists blacks who want to take over America.
I thought Atwater was low, but these ops have sunk to a new level......
If you fall for it, you are CHUMPS.
Good people Unite! Don't let this evil win!!!
Dukakis destroyed his own run... and willie horton is a fact of democrat life in Mass. where I come from.
Wouldn't expect you to get it.
But you can bet your Beckles-coated butt the rest of us here IN MASSACHUSETTS do!
Muffy had an add about a "scary black man" in a dark alley too.....insinuating that was Deval Patrick.
What scummy lengths politicos will go to....and Lee Atwater was the dirtiest of dirty dogs. And THIS CROWD has him beat!!!
Watch on Aug 28, the anniversary of MLK's speech on Washington....Beckles and his racists baggers will be there to tell you how much Obama hates white people.
Meanwhile, National Action Network is holding it's own rally to commemorate King.
Should be an interesting day.
I'm taking bets on who shows up with assault rifles and who doesn't!
Thank you cagsil...can you tell I'm pissed? hahaha
Had it up to here...this one broke the camel's back.
Because I remember how nice a man Dukakais was....nothing dirty about his dealings. Straight and narrow that one.
Going up against the demons from hell. Much like their motto: "Anything to make a Buck", it's "Anything to win an election".....anything.
It just goes to show you how we operate in this, "The Greatest Nation IN THE WORLD...THE WORLD!!!!!
They take us for a bunch of rubes and slack-jawed yocals!!!
Dukakis should have never taken that ridiculous picture of himself driving a tank.
Yea! That picture would really prompt me to take out racist attack ads on the man. It would have nothing to do with despicable me!
I'll take that picture over a Beckles tear-a-thon any day.
*oh sob* *sob* *oh boooohoooooo* wipes tears. "I just.......I just.......It's just that.......I just know Obama hates America!"......*oh sooooob* *sooooooob* lays it on heavy, must stop. Can't take the pain of it.
That clown never left the morning zoo!
CBS was fined $550 thousand by the FCC for Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl. (The fine was reduced by court decision). I wonder how much Fox "News" will be fined for its conspiracy with Tea Party scum leader Andrew Breitbart in the assassination of Shirley Sherrod in an effort to attack NCAAP. The doctored video appeared on the same website as the phony videos that resulted in the demise of ACORN. The White House and/ or Vilsak deserves criticism for taking the Fox News bait and firing Sherrod without bothering to find out the facts of her case. The NAACP has apologised abjectly for allowing itself to be "snookered" by Fox News and Breitbart. Seems to me that Fox News seriously breached its public duty in this case.
I totally agree!!
When do the Democrats stop taking this obvious lying smear campaign going on??
If you watched Maddow last night, she showed the rest of Sherrod's speech...the end of it where she said, "I went in there to help black people, who had been so terribly wronged" (paraphrase)
That's the part Faux showed. But then she said this:"But I realized it was really for poor people of all colors."(paraphrase)
Much like MLK, who before he was assasinated, was starting what he found to be the real goal after civil rights.... A Poor People's Campaign.
Now YOU KNOW there cannot be a campaign to end poverty....Who would the predators get rich off?????

With claims of being the "Fair and Balanced" take on reporting and the #1 news network in the nation, are we to believe they have a corner on the truth and spin because of their ratings?
