Ask and you shall receive. Or could it be that Media Matters is just that predictable? The mainstream media have wasted no time swapping from campaign mode to coordinating attacks on outspoken conservatives with political ambitions. Sen. Ted Cruz is the reincarnation of Joseph McCarthy. Sen. Marco Rubio? He, um, drinks water. And Dr. Ben Carson, who stole the limelight from the president at the National Prayer Breakfast? Who wants to go first and clear the path for the Herman Cain ‘Uncle Tom’ treatment?

It looks like Media Matters will take the lead on this one themselves. That’s certainly an innocuous tweet; who wants to summarize the piece for us? It starts out like this: “Dr. Benjamin Carson is the latest in a long line of black conservatives — from Clarence Thomas to Herman Cain — relentlessly promoted and propped up by right-wing voices in the media.”

Yes, that’s about it. Seeing as this is a “research” piece from Media Matters, there’s no need to skip to the end to find out who the bad guy is — Fox News, obviously. It seems the network is working overtime to make Carson a star. The only problem: Carson was already a star. His speech at the National Prayer Breakfast was a runaway viral hit, leaving Fox racing to play catch-up. Who is this guy? David Limbaugh summed it up very well.

But, he’s black! Media Matters did some research and managed to find liberals willing to explain how important Carson’s race was to conservatives who didn’t realize they cared. Take this analysis from The Atlantic … please: “Though many commentaries have tried tiptoe around it, it’s impossible to pretend there’s no racial dimension involved in a successful black conservative castigating the liberal black president,” wrote David Graham.

Or how about this gem from The Grio’s Joy Reid? “If you want to be Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, any brown or black person who is willing to say conservative stuff, this is your moment,” she told Ed Schultz. “You can make a lot of money, get a lot of attention, get a lot of love from the right, because they really do need brown and black faces to start saying this script.”

So, the reason Carson is so exciting to conservatives isn’t because of what he said, but because he’s a black man willing to criticize a black president?

https://twitter.com/OliverNeckBeard/status/304623728543793152

Did Oliver Willis write the piece? If not, maybe he could at least clarify the results of the “research” for us.

Ah, insightful. If Media Matters wants to do some real research into the popularity of Ben Carson, we’d suggest they watch his speech again — or better yet, just listen. The color seems to be too much of a distraction.

And as for Cindy Sheehan, She’s STILL out there protesting the wars but since a Democrat’s in power she get ignored now.

          If it weren’t for Republicans, the civil rights law wouldn’t have passed. the only switching that was done was that the Blacks were convicned that the Democrat party cares about them.

            Oh and how could I leave out Robert Byrd…

            From Wikipedia:

            In the early 1940s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan

            In 1946, Byrd wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:
            “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
            —Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1946

            In 1946 or 1947, Byrd wrote a letter to a Grand Wizard
            stating, “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to
            see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the
            nation.”

            He too died a Deomcrat in good standing.

            The racists are in the South, and before the Civil Rights Act passed, the South used to vote Democratic. After liberals passed the CRA, the South (and all of its racists) have gone Republican ever since. How hard is that to understand?

          • Billie Slash

            Its hard to understand, because you are factually incorrect. “Liberals” did not pass the CRA. A group of 18 ‘Southern bloc’ Dems. filibustered the CRA for almost two months back in the ’64. To accuse your fellow Southern citizens of being racist is ignorant, but its good to know Chris Matthews has at least one fan. The real racism is to label a person of color an ‘oreo’ or ‘uncle tom’ because they have broken with the Victim Party (D), and think for themselves.

            Correct. It also doesn’t help that the neo-fascists have overrun the school system and are hell bent on rewritting history. Just look at how many people believe that fascism is a right-wing phenomenon, when in fact is a cousin to socialism. The difference between socialism and fascism is that fascism is nationalistic in nature whereas socialism is internationalist.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            Human progress is not a slow and methodical process you are attempting to describe it as. Further, most human progress is achieved in fits and starts, often accompanied by extreme violence.

          • marylandman

            It absolutely is achieved slowly. These violent turning points are simply culminations of slow changes in beliefs. People are slowly starting to realize that gay people aren’t any different from you and I. This, mon frere, is progress.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            I guess I should have focused on the reduction to absurdity that your reply about no progress was.

            Either way, the Democrats are not attempting to “advance the progress of the human race”, they are simply pandering to a voter base in their spectrum of Identity Politics. I reject identity politics on it’s face, as I view people as individuals and not merely members of sub-groups.

          • marylandman

            It’s not about the Democrats, it’s about individuals. Social change comes from the people. And people who oppose equality are standing in the way of progress.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            You are here claiming the Democrats are advancing the “progress of the human race” and now you claim it’s “not about the Democrats”?

            Which is it? Or did some of the blood soaked history of the Democrat party finally start to sink in?

          • marylandman

            What I originally said was that people who oppose equality are holding back the progress of the human race. YOU interpreted that as “Democrats are advancing the progress of the human race.” You probably have too much blood coming out of your eyes and ears to read and hear what I am saying.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            You need to reread the thread you are in. You brought up the progress of the human race in reply to a comment stating the blood soaked history of the Democrat party and their hypocritical rhetoric. Therefore the connection is that you are claiming the attributes you state belong to the Democrats.

            Disillusion of grandeur much?

          • marylandman

            I believe the phrase you’re looking for is “delusion of grandeur.” And no.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            Yes you’re correct in the phrase I should have used. Further, if you think you are advancing the “progress of the human race” you are in fact suffering from delusions of grandeur. As if the American political process has any import of the entirety of the human race.

          • marylandman

            Go ahead, tell yourself that your prejudice against gays does no harm and that kids aren’t killing themselves because of the atmosphere that your party fosters. There is blood on your hands, buddy. Blood on your face and in your hair as well. Probably blood on the bottom of your shoes too that you rudely track in the house everywhere. People like you make me sick. Have some respect for the house.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            How we ever got on the topic of homosexuality when we were talking about the racist history of the Democrats is beyond me.

            That said, you need to check your rhetoric and only label me with statements I have made. As it stands, I am for gay marriage as well as full protection and privileges of their rights in this country, though persuadable as to whether we call it Civil Unions or Marriage. Personally don’t care either way and find the civil union phrase superfluous and some what insulting.

            As to who is blood soaked, you need to come to terms with the blood soaked history of your Democrat party, before attacking others for their alleged guilt.

          • marylandman

            You are the one soaked in blood, not I. I’m just asking that you get the blood off your shoes before you blood everything up inside. Is that too much to ask?

          • NachoCheese (D)

            Did you even read what I wrote or just go with your knee jerk prepared response to what you assumed I was going to reply with?

            Once again, check the racist history of the Democrat party for the source of the blood in your house.

            The old saying about glass houses would serve you well at this point.

          • marylandman

            I’m only asking you not to get blood all over the inside of my nice, new glass house. Don’t be a douche. You’ll probably smear blood on the glass walls and then I won’t be able to see out of it. Jeez, some people.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            So you admit you didn’t actually read what I wrote.

          • marylandman

            Oh, I read it. I read it.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            Sure…yet you still try to libel me as “blood soaked”.

            Just come to terms with your party’s actual blood soaked history. Real blood, not just metaphorical blood.

          • marylandman

            I probably could have read your post better if it hadn’t been covered in blood from all of the blood that you’re covered with.

            Baseless? Shameful? Your lack of intelligence on the subject of abortion and liberals is so shocking, I’m not even going to dignify that with an answer. And…any additional idiocy that you post in reply to me (or anyone else) will go unanswered…not because I’m ‘scared’ of you or don’t have any answers, but I have a family who I’d like to spend time with and take care of at the moment, and they are my priority…certainly not responding to the lunatic rantings of a 70-something yahoo who is getting paid to be on this board as a troll.

          • marylandman

            I wish I were getting paid. What tipped you off to the fact that I’m trolling? Was it when I said Democrats passed the Civil Rights Act? Or when I had a 20 comment discussion about who was bloodier, me or that other guy?

          • $36544368

            Actually, it was probably a Freudian slip on NachoCheese’s part…perhaps with all the BS going on in the US, he was thinking about how the POTUS has almost wrecked this country, and NC is ‘disillusioned’ (i.e., ‘disappointed’). It is a real word, Jack Wagon.

          • marylandman

            Look, guy, we don’t need anyone to tell us that disillusion is a word.

          • $36544368

            The racists are in the South, and before the Civil Rights Act passed, the South used to vote Democratic. After liberals passed the CRA, the South (and all of its racists) have gone Republican ever since. How hard is that to understand?

            “The idea that “the Dixiecrats joined the Republicans” is
            not quite true, as you note. But because of Strom Thurmond it is
            accepted as a fact. What happened is that the **next** generation (post
            1965) of white southern politicians — Newt, Trent Lott, Ashcroft,
            Cochran, Alexander, etc — joined the GOP.

            So it was really a passing of the torch as the old segregationists
            retired and were replaced by new young GOP guys. One particularly
            galling aspect to generalizations about “segregationists became GOP” is that the new GOP South was INTEGRATED for crying out loud, they accepted the Civil Rights revolution. Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter led a group of what would become “New” Democrats like Clinton and Al Gore.” http://www.black-and-right.com/2010/03/19/the-dixiecrat-myth/

            The other thing that happened was that the far-left hijacked the Democrats, and consolidated its power with the nomination in 1968 of George McGovern for president. Since then, they have pushed further to the left than many European socialist parties, leaving Americans with no taste for Marxism little alternative but the Republicans. Speaking as an old-school, Yankee blue-blood Republican (with ancestors who founded the state of Connecticut), I sometimes wish you Demonrats would take back some of your more rural runaways.

          • marylandman

            This is just pure insanity. Democrats are to the left of socialists in Europe? You must have a single digit IQ. Their conservative parties over there are closer to our Democrats. Republicans are the ones off the deep end. The only place with conservatives to match the USA’s are in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and other countries of that ilk.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            You clearly have never been to Europe, or the Middle East.

            Obamao is closer to Morsi in Egypt than any conservative is. The alignment is related to collectivist political philosophy, sadly for Obamao he doesn’t have nearly the dictatorial powers that Morsi does, otherwise we would see even more clearly how closely related their base political philosophy and desire for control of the collective is.

            Clearly you’re just too young to remember this, but in 1965 the government sent out a notice telling people that their party registration would be automatically switched by year’s end. I was a Republican until then, but the parties switched. I don’t know what else to tell you. Open your eyes.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            Funny how all those other racist Democrats didn’t get their notice back in ’65, as they spent the rest of their racist lives as Democrats in good standing.

Pay us to keep you stupid, all the while saying don’t you worry about a thing darkie we’ll handle those racist republicans for you, just keep voting for us, here have a piece of chicken. Please tell me how blacks have “come up” since the parties so called switched sides? Hell divorce rates, crime rates, and unemployment rates were actually lower when blacks weren’t so brain-washed. Blacks are diametrically opposed to liberal ideology remove democrat and republican from the party platforms and give one of these inner city blacks a quiz. Gay Marriage? No. Abortion? No. Single Parent Households? Bad. Illegal Immigration? Bad. 2nd Amendment? No restrictions. Police state? No. Hard Work? Yes. Accountability? Yes. Climate Change? Skeptical, probably a scam. Affirmative action? Racist and bigoted.

          Giving blacks the right to vote, and the right to own property is just window dressing. You people are trying to take away the single most important right that defines a legal resident vs a citizen, gun ownership. What good are any of your rights without the right to defend them? (I hope to God you learn that the hard way) You’ll be begging some right wing nut job to rescue you from the government one day… Or maybe you are one of those oh so rare atheist liberals who will just kill themselves at the first sign of trouble.

            Are you (or anyone else here) familiar with the ventriloquist, Jeff Dunham? Obama reminds me of his character “Jose Jalapeno”…because he’s a puppet on a ‘steeek’ (stick). One of the first things I ever heard “Jose” say was that he ‘did not like the purple guy’ (referring to another puppet named ‘Peanut’)…change that to “I do not like the Republican guy”, and you’ve got Jose’s doppelganger in Obama. As far as ‘rent-free’, I wouldn’t joke too much. Obama may start a tax on our thoughts, with a 28% tax rate being imposed on those who think of him only once a day, or forget to genuflect. You, on the other hand, would get a tax break because you think of him more than most of us on this board…he’s your best buddy, your daddy, your keeper, your nanny, and your Obamaphone-giver. I’m surprised your lips aren’t chapped!

      Listen to Dr. Carson speech again and you’ll notice that BOTH parties got skewered. He managed to be polite and funny in his delivery while not mentioning politicians like Obama by name.

      This is why Dr. Carson has proven to be a hard target to smear. The worse the media have said is the timing of speech was “inappropriate.” Clearly, they missed the 2012 prayer breakfast where Eric Metaxas called out Obama by name:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jotOExbddI4
      What the media fears is that unlike Metaxas Dr. Carson’s household name gives him an “in” with Black Democrats, who might finally question the policies of those they vote for.

    It’s funny, Media Matters used to have an almost all white staff, mainly skinny nerdy brown haired boys who looked like younger versions of MMFA founder David Brock’s then husband James Alefantis. Even their spin off, the gay group Equality Matters, was run by a very blond lesbian whose last name was that of her ancestral Dutch village. When Alefantis dumped Brock, Brock went on Chemistry.com where his personal ad specified that he was looking only for white (and Christian) men. If he has not taken it down his Chemistry.com profile number is in this blogpost http://bighomocon.blogspot.com/2012/02/on-daily-caller-they-says-brock-is.html

    • MaryKay

      Oops. My mistake. Brock’s Chemistry.com ad says he will only date whites, but it doesn’t specify Christians, it just says he’s Christian. He will consider Jews, as long as they are white.

    • carla5731

      Conservatives don’t oppose Obama’s ethnicity, they oppose his policies. Obama believes in telling minorities and women that they’re victims who need the government’s helping hand. The reason conservatives like Ben Carson is because he lives conservative values. He succeeded by the sweat of his brow and has a common sense approach to government problems. Even though he grew up in poverty, neither he nor his mother succumbed to the victimization that’s preached to the African-American community by the Democrats.

      • Silenttype78

        really why is it the attack on ACORN began in 2008,even though ACORN has been DNC pres conventions since 1980. in wisconsin early voting was bipartisan supported until 2008 . conservatives say Obama is a socialist. Never heard him say he is a socialist. On the other hand Bernie Sanders can admit to being a socialist ,yet you would have to think hard when the last time a conservative called Sanders a socialist. I can go on

        • Gallatin

          1. James O’Keefe was 24 in 2008 when he exposed Acorn for what it was in his undercover investigation. Are you saying that just because no real “journalists” had investigated Acorn over the years that no one should have? Are you saying that just because a black man was running for President that no investigation into his ties or associations should have been made? You trying to paint the right as racists because of the exposure of a criminal organization that a black presidential candidate had ties to says more about your racism that anything.

          2. We don’t need obowmao to say he is a socialist to know he is one, we simply just listen to him speak and watch his actions.

    When is this stupidity going to stop? Dr. Carson uses common sense and obviously cares very much about the direction this country is going. Why can’t people just acknowledge that what he said, needed to be said. Obama makes it impossible to confront him on the issues, so a person has to take advantage of every opportunity. Seriously Lefties, what in the hades has Obama done, that is so great, that you give him your undying devotion? Most devisive President in history. Why doesn’t this man ever allow a question and answer opportunity? Fact check should also be there to verify what these Politicians spout. Both Parties. The American people deserve to hear the truth occasionally.

  • Sam Howard

    We conservatives have to stop thinking in racial terms. By this I don’t mean we are racist. What I mean is, allow the left to keep talking about race, and we on the right simple say there is no race in our eyes. The only way to defeat the left in this race baiting attack is simply to move passed race itself. As they keep arguing race as an issue, we simply keep including…Just as we have always done. Eventually they will look like idiots calling conservatives racist.

      Similarly with Ted Cruz. He’s incredibly intelligent and an able litigator with a resume any lawyer would envy and able to cut through the b.s. to the heart of the argument (just as Dr. Carson is), so the Left is out to destroy him. They simply cannot tolerate ANY person from an ethnicity other than white who disagrees with them and is capable of explaining WHY.

    And thus the Racist-Left will have to do their level best to try and destroy him.

    You can bet they’ve got squads of smear artists looking into the man’s past, present and future.

    And even if they don’t find anything, don’t be surprised when they try making something up and require him to refute their LIES.

Only demented far leftists at MediaMatters would object to to that story because Dr. Carson is the antithesis to their mission.
