I originally wanted to post about another subject. Then something caught my eye, Greta Van Susteren had called me out. While visiting her Gretawire blog I left a little message and she was not too happy with it.
From time to time I like to answer comments. Here is a comment posted here on GretaWire:
“Fox and white Americans are making black people riot! Al Sharpton is the firewall between black anger coming for your neighborhood. MLK tried to warn you and you had riots in America. Now Greta and all the bigots at Fox are trying to start a race riot by dogging out blacks, Native Americans, and Hispanics.”
RESPONSE FROM ME: Let’s get something straight. First, I will put my civil rights record up against anyone’s, including the person who wrote this comment. I spent years and years in the courtroom fighting for the rights of people of color.
I think that she's protesting too much. What first drove me to her site in 2007 was how she kept throwing red meat to her audience. There would be four or five articles in a row questioning the POTUS intelligence. She would print the POTUS schedule and would describe in detail which car he's in. It was as if she was working for another government intelligence service. It was TOO detail and unnecessary. It was as if she was trying to get the President killed.Second, no one is making anyone riot. There is a big difference between passionate exercise of First Amendment (which incidentally I also spent years in the courtroom protecting) and rioting. The line? try looting.
There's a difference between the 1st Amendment and outright lying. You told your audience that Trinity United Church of Christ was teaching hate. The church got death threats and so did the new minister Otis Moss III. Otis Moss III is the son of Dr. Martin Luther King's best friend Rev. Dr. Otis Moss Jr, the man that performed the wedding ceremony for Dr. King. Another thing that Greta may not have known is that the headquarters for the United Church of Christ is in Cleveland home of the 2016 Republican Party Convention. At one point Connie Schultz and her husband Sen. Sharrod Brown attended the church to humanize the congregation. Yes Greta someone had to make Black people look human because one network was busy trying to make them look savage. It didn't matter if the POTUS went to Ebenezer Baptist Church, Dr. King's former church, you had to get your audience so angry that they could kill.Third, I would not put Reverend Al Sharpton in the same category as Martin Luther King. Anyone who has studied (or lived) history, studied MLK knows better.
You wouldn't put Rev. Sharpton in the same category as Dr. King, well let me tell you a story. Remember when Glenn Beck had his fake ass March on Washington (actually it was on Black people), Black media, Rev. Sharpton, Black Fraternities and Sororities tried to calm Black people down. Glenn was basically defecating on the memory of Dr. King. All these groups and like minded Whites saved Glenn Beck's and his Tea Baggin' friends lives. You have to remember the racism was over the top and people brought their guns and racist signs with the N-word to previous functions hosted by Glenn that he has to issue a statement telling his "friends" to not bring signs. Rev. Sharpton is no Dr. King, that because racist killed off most of our leaders in the 60's. If Dr. King was alive now you would be attacking him just like you do any of our leaders.
Then there's the language that your audience use concerning minorities. When people make bigoted racist statements, they are rewarded at your site. There are mentions of coup attempts, lawsuits, treason, and genocide. This is not hyperbole. Below is a link to her site.
Below is one of her fans responding to her and teaching "Fox" Black history.

First, MLK was an anarchist. he simply knew how to keep from getting himself arrested for it, by having his lieutenants start the riots after he left town. I suspect, Greta, you were still a kid, during the MLK years.
Second, the most racist organization in America today, is not the KKK (although they are obviously racist), the most racist of all is the NAACP.
Blacks still want to blame whitey for everything, because they are taught it was all whitey's fault, from the beginning, as soon as they are old enough to learn words. They are so consumed by hatred for whites, they don't even recognize the truth..........they are their own worst enemy.
O'Reilly was right about one thing, those who work the hardest, and do the best in America, are Asians. They earn it, and they do better than whites do. Indeed, white America has fallen victim to the federal hand outs, and has become far more useless today, than ever before, in this country.
Blacks who make the comments above, are simply haters who refuse to accept responsibility for their own actions.
Whites going to take some responsibility for the violence going on out there, not all Whites just the people at Greta's site that live in a parallel universe. Some of the blame for the state of our country has to go to those on the right. I didn't cause Rosewood, Black Wall Street, or the Red Summer. I didn't kill Emmitt Till. I didn't segregate the schools. Some of those with White privilege need to take responsibility. Another thing, we get sick of people telling us to fix our own community and stop the violence, try your neighborhood first. Not too many "brothers" (and "sisters") bring guns and bombs to their schools. The violence isn't a Black or White thing, it's an American thing. It's woven into the fabric of America. Stop blaming the victim. According to Fox racism is when a Black person opens their mouth and complain.PS: I found these little nuggets on a couple of blogs. The first on is the program of the Tea Party trying to help the businesses of Ferguson by shopping at some of the stores damaged during the troubles there. If the Tea Party wanted to help they would apologize to Black America for being racist in the first place. These people blame the current POTUS for the debt cause by Bush spending Bill Clinton surplus.
The second link is from Yahoo. Yes Yahoo publishes an fake ass article from the Examiner sending out dog whistles to harm the POTUS.
CIA now admits that President Obama is a radical Islamic enemy of America
