Twitter is prescient once again! As Twitchy reported this morning, Mitt Romney spoke at the NAACP National Convention in Houston. Predictably, his promise to repeal Obamacare was met with boos. However, his firm support of traditional marriage was met with applause (as was his support for the Keystone Pipeline and charter schools). You’d never know that, though, were you to watch mainstream media outlets. Those applause don’t suit the narrative! Are NAACP members drinking the H8R-ade? That doesn’t suit. So, ignore! Ignore like the wind!


Here are some headlines from our esteemed press.

Some media outlets not only ignore the applause, but outright lie about them. By turning them magically into boos. This isn’t really surprising. As Twitchy reported in May, media outlets breathlessly reported President Obama’s “evolution” on gay marriage with glee and openly said “same-sex marriage is a civil right. It’s about time.” Unbiased reporting!

Huh. That’s strange, as those actually watching the speech heard applause.

The Left, of course, tried to spin away the applause and attack Romney instead.

Romney “bigotry.” He must have forced people to applaud with his wizard wand of evil. And sorry, toots. There is no “pitting” necessary. The hard truth is that the black community is opposed to gay marriage. While the NAACP recently “evolved” into supporting same-sex marriage (right after President Obama did so. What a coincidence!), the rank and file members aren’t on board.

That doesn’t stop the Left from further exposing their own bigotry; time for some anti-Mormon sentiments, natch.

And, Hitler! Criminy, lefties. At least get some new lines.

And some cries of racist, natch.

Mia Farrow jumps into the mix, tweeting about the boos while conveniently ignoring the applause. Gee, we wonder why? Perhaps she doesn’t want to call NAACP audience members “backwoods barbarians” trying to force the icky bible’s definitions of marriage on everyone. Or lament the shame they should feel, like she did when Amendment One passed in North Carolina.

Hypocrisy and lies. The Left’s standard operating procedure.

    I’ll give him credit for going into the lion’s den, it’s like Obama going into a tea party convention, except he wouldn’t get any cheers like Romney did with the NAACP…. so who really are the racists again?…….. Yep the neo cons

    • SDN

      Neither would Chuck Schumer or Axelrod, and for the same reason: Democrat policies suck like a Hoover.

    • NCRelite

      Like Allen West or Herman Cain wouldn’t get standing ovations at tea party rallies… your comment = nuked

  • stuckinIL4now

    BTW, where is Obama? Why didn’t he make an appearance? Because he thinks he’s got their votes in the bag? They’re otherwise not important to him, are they?

    • SideshowJon36

      Maybe his advisors were scared of him going on a rant like this again?

        Does link work for anyone else?
        My phone errors out on this particular link.

        Sorry, my comment #14 wasn’t directed at your #13.

        I pressed the “respond” arrow to redfeather comment #3… when #4 was the last comment showing. It then took a few hrs to show up.

        I just wanted to correct possible misimpressions.

    Nope! Don’t dare leave the comfort of Right Wing Myth Media and take any news from the Media that the majority of the entire civilized world depends on for truth – – – that would be sacriligious and an affront to the Rightie Revisionists who want to rule the world with their iron fist of Theocratism. Romney being booed is hopefully a sign of things to come. Oh come Oh Ye Sequestered Convention!

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      … oh wait. You believe you’re serious.


    • NCRelite

      Oh so they *do* have WIFI in the Occuturd rape tents… fascinating!

  • Armando

    Is there a video of the ovation? I would like to retweet it to provide a more balanced coverage to the news.

    Lapdog Media reporting continue to support the notion that NAACP are the racists in the crowd.

  • Chip

    NAACP in shock because they can’t remember the last time they heard a speech that didn’t pander to them.

  • ComanderCody

    Obama is scheduled to speak at NASCAR / NRA convention.

    • TugboatPhil

      I might pay to watch that.

  • Dostoyevsky23

    The House voted to repeal Obamacare today. It is the more relevant story in a media landscape where you can’t stick two thoughts together without the audience losing concentration. It’s about eyeballs and profit, not ideology.

    • Dostoyevsky23

      I find it ironic that it took the above comment over eight hours to get posted onto a site that is focused on Twitter and media bias.

  • SideshowJon36

    I think he also got applause for School Choice, but no way the media is gonna tell you that

  • BeeKaaay

    Lapdog media? More like state owned media.

  • Sylvia Mangini

    He had a lot of guts going into the lion’s den and he handled it well. He told the truth, no on likes to hear the truth. Perhaps this shameless pandering is what people undoubtedly prefer:

    Is Mia Farrow still alive? I’m older than she was/is and I should have been deceased years ago according to the “death panel” actuary tables.
