MSNBC responds to selective editing of Arizona health care protest

Politico has this post where they quote an MSNBC spokesperson as saying:

"Contessa was speaking generally and not about that specific person with the automatic weapon."


1) The semi-automatic rifle was not a machine gun.
2) Contessa Brewer said: “But also there are questions whether this has a racial overtone. I mean here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their wastes.” Another person on the same show noted the “anger about a black person being president” and about "the black man becoming president. You know we see these hate groups rising up.” Note that they did not say that black and whites were showing up. It would have undone their racial tone argument if they had. They clip running at the time that she was speaking was of the man carrying the civilian version of the AR-15.

I walked through the Pro Obama croed and noticed the man eith the AR-15. I saw no one who seemed upset that this black man was exercising his rights.

I am certain that Ms. Brewer's news broadcast was approved by the BHO Ministry of Propaganda, and we have nothing to fear...
