First Hillary’s words so there’s no confusion or the common excuse of her words being used out of context:
Then Keith Olberman goes off for ten plus minutes:
For anyone to say the words assassination in a race led by a Black man is both unacceptable, inexcusable and just plain bullshit. “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know I just, I don’t understand it.”
WTF!?! Why those words? What are you trying to say?
I’m thoroughly impressed Barack has made it this far, but this campaign is bringing out the hate coded snakes like it’s uh…1968. Are you implying that Barack is gonna get shot, so I’ll just stick around until he does? In doing so, you bring up 1968…the worse year in America’s political history? Hillary and her camp are proving they are in fact are waiting for something tragic to happen to Barack or why the hell would she still be in the race. She cannot win the election via delegate count, so just take it like a woman and get the hell out of the race Hillary! You have no more business here and only choose to wreck the entire “democratic” process as it’s purported to be to the point a Republican will be given the election by default? After all we’ve gone through the past eight years!?!?.
This country is really that STUPID?
Do you want to pay 15.00 for a gallon of gas? That’s what they are predicting.
Hillary you’ve been done a for a while now. It’s not about how this affects her campaign people. To say that is naive and totally disrespectful of ANYONE that has been assassinated in this country.
You know damn well what you meant when you said assassination!
Who–Blacks in particular–wants to hear that shit?
There was no need for the presumed implication (in the choice of words you used) or saying the word assassination in any context for that matter. The words just didn’t fit. What is that all about?
Olberman also brings up the many pandering bitchassness moves you’ve employed this entire campaign and it’s a long ass list: Bob Johnson and Geraldine Ferraro to Jeremiah Wright, not slamming the racist assholes in West Virginia (and anyone else in the country that needs to fall back because of racism for that matter) and your own damn husband talking out the side of his neck.
Why are you still here?
Can someone give an answer in the best interest of the entire nation?
Isn’t enough just enough?
Hillary has since apologized to the Kennedy family, but not to Barack Obama?
What? Does anyone else find that incredible?
What are you trying to prove?
The people of this nation have spoken so there’s nothing left in this 2008 election for you to accomplish.
You’ve lost, so just do the simple and logical thing and ease back into the “private sector” with Bill Pimpin.
I initially thought Olberman’s rant was somewhat lacking. I thought he was skating around the point, but you decide…
Don’t trip…Olberman says Malcolm X later.
Also, will this still be a story Tuesday because of the holiday?
All of us in the media know Friday is the getaway day used to hide stories that normally would exacerbate something or other detrimental to someone’s nasty ass self interested agenda.
Whites who do not understand the inarguable depth of her words (in the familiar I’m-being-sarcastic-name of shock and awe) must understand that Barack, because of the magnitude of this election, has positioned himself to go down in history as one of the preeminent Black leaders ever.
All the honorable rest are dead.
Do you fucking understand that? Go look in the mirror and splash the coldest water on your nullifying face and then get back to me.
Snap out of it!
There are some who most likely forgot that Bobby Kennedy was killed. There’s an explanation for this. The legacy of Whites in politics past, present and future is not in a vacuum but in a continuum forevermore.
Say the Kings, Evers or Malcolm’s family (to name a few) continued forward with their patriarch’s livelihood intact. What would this country be? I guarantee Blacks would be in a better position financially as well as mentally. Their lives would have spawned so much creative balance beginning in their own home. Their smile sunshine every morning would have touched the world and inspired millions. Would the political landscape have been modified to resemble something it presently isn’t? I would think so because you would have had an incredibly astute check and balance that could not be denied.
Instead we collectively have to flinch almost in a constant paranoid state like Olberman ironically does at the 1:39 mark.
Do Whites have to live with the specter of their own actually dying because of a damn election?
Hell no and for Blacks to have to go through this motherfucking bullshit is motherfucking crazy!
Buchanan, for one (I only bring up his name because he’s inexplicably allowed to espouse his coded racist oldassness consistently for all to see), is almost begging for this story to die over the weekend.
Who does he speak for?
He speaks for someone or his old ass nose hairs would not disgustingly pollute the air waves.
Tuesday is the day.
We shall see America. Watch your tongue. Watch it. This is a warning.
