Check the headlines in the aftermath of the Charleston shootings. Grief, anger, racism, cause, mourning, denial (OK, this was just the baggers, but still), guns, ... Stars and Bars.
The Confederate Flag.
Cries were loud and clear to bring down that flag from governmental buildings in South Carolina (OK, not from the baggers, but still).
Then Nikki Haley announced that she'd champion the effort and get the legislature to do so. Walmart decided that they did not need anymore Confederate dollars, so they banned all that Confederate stuff. eBay and Amazon followed.
As will many others.
With the help of a racist and unwitting MSM, the rightwing has successfully steered the conversation away from guns.
A white racist shot nine black men six black men and three black women in their church.
The debate today is whether to ban a flag, and where. Like I said, simply masterful!
Because if the existing laws are insufficient to control gun violence, what's one more law going to do? Besides, criminals do not follow laws (So since murderers do not follow the law and will murder, there is no point in having laws against murder)
Ted Cruz—one of Obama's many worst nightmares in the dreams of the tea-baggers—is going to run for President.
As everyone should know, he's a Canadian anchor-baby born of the Cuban dissident/pastor Rafael Cruz and his American wife.
Obama was born of a a Kenyan father and an American mother and in Hawaii. But that did not stop many politicians and people alike from questioning his citizenship. Even when politicians knew better, they would give an ambiguous "Well, I do not know where he was born" response.
So now that Cruz is running, this noise machine is silent. Of course, it has nothing to do with Cruz not have too much melanin in his dermis or his being a Republican, right? Well, that's what the MSM should be relentlessly asking every single person who claim or claimed that Obama was ineligible to be POTUS.
Because, you know, that'd be fair, balanced and would go a long way towards showing that the MSM is not racist. No, now is NOT the time to "rise above the fray." or "take the high road," or "avoid a circus," or any of the vomit they are going to provide as a reason.
