Wonder what you would find if you frisked some SEIU protesters at the pro-public union SEIU rally outside the Colorado Capitol in Denver?

Answer: They decided to harass an African-American Tea Partier who was participating in the counter-rally.

The Blaze reports:

During a pro-union rally at Colorado’s State Capitol yesterday, some alleged SEIU union supporters got into a shouting match with a black Tea Partier. But the conversation wasn’t just a loud, heated exchange. It got very personal when two union supporters ganged up on the conservative, one of them calling him “uneducated” and another asking him if he has any children “that he claims”.

According to RedWhiteBlueNews.com, the woman in red was later asked what she meant by her comments about the man’s children. “She said the black conservative was such a ‘free spirit’ that she assumed he would possibly not own up to the responsibility of being a father,” the site says.

Notice how the SEIU protester calls the Black conservative “uneducated” while also claiming he is “emmoral”… The only uneducated person in the video clip above is the SEIU protester. It’s pronounced “immoral” by the way.

Typical and classless.

*UPDATE* – February 23, 2011 – 1:23 PM.

The same group of protesters, who called the Black conservative “educated”, chanted “U-S-A” while waving a Mexican flag:

Wonder what you would find if you frisked this Pepsi Max commercial that aired during the Super Bowl?

Answer: Apparently, it is outrageous for a African-American male to look at a Caucasian female.

At least that is what US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) seems to think. The Hill reports:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took to the House floor Tuesday night to criticize what she called a “demeaning” Pepsi ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

Jackson Lee said it was ridiculous for the soft drink maker to air the advertisement during African-American history month.

“In this month of African-American history where we’re trying to celebrate what is good and great, it certainly seems ridiculous that Pepsi would utilize this kind of humor,” she said. “It was not humorous. It was demeaning — an African-American woman throwing something at an African-American male and winding up hitting a Caucasian woman.”

[…]

“I think that we can come together in a much better way, sell Pepsi, and as well talk about good nutrition,” she said. “But, frankly, I consider this insulting, and so did many other women of all colors.”

Unfortunately, this woman is being serious.

I’m sure Pepsi will cast commercials with only black people or only white people next time. After all, we wouldn’t want to offend Rep. Jackson Lee by mixing it up. What a joke.

Please, get a sense of humor.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the anti-Koch brothers protest in Palm Spring, CA last weekend?

Answer: Leftist protesters calling for the deaths of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Fox News executives, and Glenn Beck.

This is absolutely pathetic and disgusting. It is interesting that the mainstream media has no problem with blaming famous conservatives (e.g. Sarah Palin) and the Tea Party for the tragic shooting in Tucson, Arizona. Meanwhile, they blatantly ignore the actual hatred being spewed from individuals on the left.

So much for that new tone of “civility”.

Oddly enough, these leftist idiots were out in the California sunshine protesting Charles and David Koch for being conservative and rich. Big Government points out the protesters’ ignorance and hypocrisy:

Unfortunately several “haves” have missed the memo that you’re not to be both rich and conservative at the same time, and that bankrolling your pet causes is an extra no-no if you’re conservative—thus exempting left-wing billionaire philanthropists George Soros (from whom Common Cause has received $2 million over the past eight years) Peter Lewis, John Doerr, Julian RobertsonNicolas Berggruen, and many others from being yelled at too.

At the morning panel event featuring UCI Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, activist Jim Hightower, Center for American Progress journalist and “Koch Brothers expert” Lee Fang, California Nurses Association co-president DeAnn McEwan, and President Obama’s former green jobs czar Van Jones, we were forewarned of the impending demise of both the environment and democracy at the hands of corporate lobbyists and their government shills.

There was eerily no mention of GE, AEP, Goldmann Sachs, Pfizer, Aetna, Alcoa, Xerox, Google, Motorola, IBM, or several other corporate giants who profit at taxpayer expense via their K Street connections to the Obama White House as well as the very economic and regulatory policies they lobby that these Common Cause panelists commonly endorse. But I’m sure that’s only because no one wanted to point out the obvious. Right?

It is sad that these people can’t argue the issues without resorting to demonization, racist remarks, and death threats. They should all be ashamed of themselves.

As for the mainstream media, the conservative blogosphere is still waiting for you to report this vitriolic hatred. After all, you are fair and balanced right?

*UPDATE* – February 7, 2011 – 10:02 AM.

Not even the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will defend Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. The Daily Caller reports:

The NAACP won’t directly address the racism displayed by progressive protesters outside a summit hosted by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch at the end of January in Palm Springs, Calif., but the organization did call for an end to all “vitriolic language.”

In response to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on a video showing progressive protesters calling for somebody to “string up” African American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or “send him back into the fields” or “cut off all his toes and feed them to him one-by-one,” NAACP spokesman Hilary Shelton pointed to the organization’s recent resolution calling for a “civil political discourse.”

“Last summer, the NAACP passed a resolution calling for a civil political discourse,” Shelton said in an e-mail to TheDC. “We continue to call on all Americans to abandon vitriolic language. It serves as a distraction from the real issues our society need to address and distorts the challenges we as Americans have to confront to make our nation greater still.”

Shelton would not, however, address the content of the video directly.

Shocking…

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the mainstream media’s reaction to Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ rally?

Answer: Some of them seemed to focus on a similar observation.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

The question is, does the mainstream media feel the same way? Well, let’s find out.

Jim Treacher – from The Daily Caller – assembled a list of quotes written about the ‘Restoring Honor’ rally:

Presented without comment:

“Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King’s message.” — Associated Press

“Attendees at the rally Saturday largely honored organizer requests that they not bring banners or political signs. Instead, the predominantly white crowd, many seated on folding chairs and accompanied by their children, wore t-shirts with slogans including ‘Got principles?’ and ‘Restoring Honor.’” — AFP

“Meanwhile, many in the predominantly white crowd bent over backward to insist that they are not racists and to note that the crowd was courteous, despite heat and density.” — James Hohmann, Politico

“Beck says he and his overwhelmingly white followers ‘are the inheritors and protectors of the civil- rights movement.’” — Ben Adler, Newsweek

“Though the audience at the event was overwhelmingly white, many of the speakers were African-American, including a woman who sang a song about unity.” — Brian Montopoli, CBS

“Claiming the legacy of the nation’s Founding Fathers and repeatedly evoking civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., the speakers at the ‘Restoring Honor’ rally exhorted a vast and overwhelmingly white crowd to concentrate not on the history that has scarred the nation but instead on what makes it ‘good.’” — Philip Rucker & Carol Morello, Washington Post

“A relatively dense and overwhelmingly white crowd stretched from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial out past the Washington Monument.” — Mark Benjamin, Salon.com

“The speaker list was diverse, including African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans; Jews and Christians; clergymen, military veterans and sports stars, including Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals. The crowd, however, was overwhelmingly white.” — Michael A. Memoli and Kim Geiger, LA Times

“Out in the overwhelmingly white audience politics was everywhere, with Tea Party supporters describing the damage they envision for President Barack Obama’s Democrats in upcoming midterm elections in November.” — Mitch Potter, Toronto Star

I think that answers that question…

Oddly enough, while the liberal mainstream media stayed focused on the racial aspect of the rally, they somehow managed to completely ignore the fact that the event raised over $5.5 million for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The SOWF is a charity that helps the families of fallen soldiers… Bravo Mr. Beck and shame on you media.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Jesse Jackson’s thoughts on the ‘LeBron James going to the Miami Heat’ madness?

Answer: He compares James to a “runaway slave” or something…

Here’s another perfect example of why Jesse Jackson has fallen out of the spotlight. Yahoo! Sports reports:

Jesse Jackson criticized Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert on Sunday, saying Gilbert sees LeBron James as a “runaway slave” and that the owner’s comments after the free-agent forward decided to join the Miami Heat put the player in danger.

Shortly after James announced his decision last week, Gilbert fired off an incendiary letter to Cleveland’s fans, ripping the 25-year-old and promising to deliver a title before James wins one. He called James’ decision “cowardly” and later told The Associated Press he believes James quit during a handful of Cavaliers playoff games.

“He has gotten a free pass,” Gilbert told the AP in a phone interview late Thursday night. “People have covered up for (James) for way too long. Tonight we saw who he really is.”

Jackson said Gilbert’s comments were “mean, arrogant and presumptuous.”

“He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers,” the reverend said in a release from his Chicago-based civil rights group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. “His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship—between business partners—and LeBron honored his contract.”

🙄 Granted, Dan Gilbert’s comments were quite stupid, but I think Jesse Jackson just out did him.

JammieWearingFool sums things up:

I doubt Gilbert’s intention was to be viewed as a slave owner, especially when you consider he’s in the business of paying many black players exorbitant sums of money. If as Jackson claims James was a “slave” to Gilbert he was the most highly rewarded “slave” in human history. I doubt he appreciate being called a slave.

Props to Jesse Jackson… He has now taken the ‘LeBron James going to the Miami Heat’ madness to a whole new level of madness and that takes some skill.

Julia Reed.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the  interview between Julia Reed and Anderson Cooper on CNN?

Answer: Some poor choice of words.

The video above isn’t the best clip, but here’s what Julia Reed said:

He said I know this is going to be — lead to some, quote, difficulty for the guys who work on those rigs.

Well, if he thinks that some guys on the rigs are the only people that are going to be affected by a six-month oil moratorium, he’s out of his cotton-picking mind.

Ouch (kinda)! I say “kinda” for one reason… Julia Reed is allowed to get away with these “racist” mishaps. Why? Because she’s part of the liberal mainstream media, of course. We all know that if a Republican/Conservative referred to President Obama picking cotton the left would go absolutely bonkers!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked some of the comments made by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)?

Answer: They might be a little on the racist side.

You decide:

The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate apologized on Saturday for comments he made about Barack Obama’s race during the 2008 presidential bid.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect.” Obama is the nation’s first African-American president.

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African-Americans for my improper comments,” Reid said in a statement released after the excerpts were reported on the Web site of The Atlantic.

[…]

Reid’s comments are included in a book set to be published on Monday. “Game Change” was written by Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin and New York magazine’s John Heilemann; the pair describe the book in interviews during Sunday’s “60 Minutes” on CBS.

Of course President Obama quickly accepted Sen. Reid’s apology:

Obama quickly accepted, saying “As far as I am concerned, the book is closed.”

As Ed Morrissey from Hot Air pointed out, it’s now time for the extreme liberal hypocrisy to begin… Yippy:

When Trent Lott made a foolish statement at Strom Thurmond’s birthday party about his presidential run on a segregation tick, the media outcry forced Lott to resign his leadership position.  Will this more explicit insult create any consequences for Reid?  It certainly won’t help his favorability ratings, which have tanked even before this incident.

[…]

Reader Geoff A. e-mails with a reminder that when Don Imus made his own problematic racial crack a few years ago and then apologized, The One was … less forgiving.

Don’t forget about the Rev. Al Sharpton who always has to toss in his two cents when any racial comments are brought up. Only this time he instantly forgives his liberal friend Sen. Reid – go figure:

I have learned of certain unfortunate comments made by Senator Reid regarding President Barack Obama and have spoken with Senator Reid about those comments. While there is no question that Senator Reid did not select the best word choice in this instance, these comments should not distract America from its continued focus on securing healthcare or creating jobs for its people. Nor should they detract from the unquestionable leadership role Senator Reid has played on these issues or in the area of civil rights. Senator Reid’s door has always been open on hearing from the civil rights community on these issues and I look forward to continue to work with Senator Reid wherever possible to improve the lives of Americans everywhere.

Ahh yes! Liberal hypocrisy… What a complete joke.

Side-Note: Remember when Sen. Reid compared Republicans to slave owners a month ago? I might have to agree with RNC Chair Michael Steele and other Republican leaders… It’s time for Sen. Reid to step down as Senate majority leader.

*UPDATE* – January 11, 2009

Watch Ann Coulter destroy Al Sharpton on the issue of the Democrat’s racial double standards on FOX News’ Geraldo At Large:

Interesting… Al Sharpton kept asking which Conservative/Republican the Democrats have gone after for being ‘racist’… How about ALL the tea partiers? Once again, the liberal’s racial hypocrisy is an epic failure.
