In case you missed it which once again you most likely did as it was on MSNBC. Norah O’Donnell actually tried to find racial overtones in Newt Gingrich’s speech in which he criticized President Obama.
It’s pretty bad when fellow MSNBC types laugh at you when you try and make the claim that former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is a racist.
As Jammie Wearing Fool states, yup … that is what is has come to these days that anyone dare criticize Barack Obama, The Chosen One.
Speaking of the President’s basketball skills, Gingrich added, “But it doesn’t put anybody to work. And what we need is a president, not an athlete. We need somebody who actually focuses on getting people back to work.” After the clip was played, Morning Joe guest host O’Donnell lobbed her accusation at Gingrich.
“But I’m not sure what he means by this particular sound bite,” said O’Donnell. “And I think it’s open to some criticism because it suggests that the president is an athlete and some people may suggest, you know, because all black people are good athletes. I mean that’s what it sort of sounds like to me.”
The rest of the Morning Joe panel scoffed at O’Donnell’s claim, erupting in a flurry of dismissiveness.
Another Black Conservative makes a great point that the word “socialist” is now they new trigger for the PC Left to claim hate speech. Of course it is no coincidence this has occurred after a socialist President like Barack Obama was elected.
