Only an idiot uses a racist dogwhistle on the radio. It becomes a bullhorn at that point.
So a guy calls into CNN's Dana Loesch on the radio, and he asks if black people want a race war. Does Dana Loesch act responsibly and say "No, that's crazy." Nope. Instead, she says Yes, and that some Progressives and the Black Panther Party do want a race war. Seriously.
Up is down.
Caller: I guess what I want to talk about, I do not wish, I don't want it to happen, but do you think with all the hatred in the media, and all the discontent coming out of Florida, about this event with this Trayvon Martin, do you think the media and the African American people want a race war? Am I out of line by saying that? Or do you think they, they really want that to happen, or that the want to see it happen?"
Loesch: Yeah. I think that . . ."
YEAH? You're answer is YEAH??????
Hey crazy lady, the questions was "do you think the media and the African American people want a race war?" and your answer was YEAH? HOLY SHIT! Way to pander to the worst paranoid fears, batman!
Loesch: "Yeah. I think that some progressives, prob, well, like the New Black Panther Party, sounds kinda like they do . . . Progressives need it as a tool, they need it as a distraction"
Yes, let's shift from that distraction over Trayvon Martin's death, I'm sure Trayvon's family sees this as a distraction, a p.r. tactic, when the real issue is the New Black Panther Party, which Fox News and Rush Limbaugh have been drumming up as a constant reminder that scary black people are scary. Yesterday Rush said that President Obama is a "Supporter of the New Black Panther Party"
in an attempt to appeal to racist older voters who are old enough to remember the first Black Panther Party.
Dana evens goes on to explain why. When given the opportunity to be an adult, instead of playing to her callers fears, Dana instead reinforces those fears, and its' a pathetic babbling tirade that follows, but the main point I'm trying to make is WTF?????????
More below the fold
When given the opportunity to answer the question "Do you think the media and the African American people want a race war?" your answer is supposed to be NO! Only a crazy person with an agenda would say otherwise, but thankfully for conservatives who need to be constantly reminded why they should be scared shitless, Dana Loesch is exactly that kind of a crazy person with an agenda. Instead of sounding like an adult she sounds like Eric Cartman. Someone needs too replace the Republican mascot of the Elephant with Chicken Little with his hair on fire.
I will not transcribe the rest of her insane diatribe, suffice it to say that her initial statement says it all. According to Dana Loesch, CNN employee, yes, the media and the African American people want a race war and progressives need a race war. Fucking lunacy. In 2012. I can't believe we still have to protest this bullshit. What's more, I can't believe this lunatic works for CNN.
Dear Dana Loesch, when you aren't screaming STOP RAPING PEOPLE! at protesters you are pandering to every paranoid racist you can. The worst part is you are dumb enough and brazen enough to do so in the mass media where we can record you. When someone asks you if black people want a race war your supposed to say no if you are anything other than a shrill tool pushing a shrill smear agenda that benefits only the super-rich AT THE EXPENSE of everyone else. Trayvon Martin's tragic death is the story. Trying to make the story about the scary New Black Panther Party which only conservatives who watch Fox give a shit about is the most blatant kind of fearmongering and pandering. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.
