Tingles And Howard Fineman Agree: Conservative Talk About Ebola And “Brown People” Has A Racist “Subtext”…

And Tingles wonders why nobody watches his clown show on MSNBC.

Via RCP:

HOWARD FINEMAN: Can I mention race here?

CHRIS MATTHEWS: You may.

FINEMAN: Let’s put the cards on the table here.

MATTHEWS: You mean the word Africa?

FINEMAN: No. The brown people coming from the South, the Arab people coming from the East, the black people coming from Africa, nobody’s saying that in so many words. Nobody’s saying it at all, but it’s in the background of this whole discussion, and anybody who would deny that doesn’t know how this country operates. It’s not the only way this country operates. We’re bigger than that in the end, but that’s definitely a subtext of a lot of what’s going on here. There’s just no question about it. And I’ll say it if other people won’t.

MATTHEWS: It is the arrival of them, even though African-Americans, hint hint, have been here before we got here.

Obama Declares Ebola Crisis In America A Media Myth…

The nurses fighting to keep their organs from liquifying beg to differ.

Via Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama claimed Oct. 20 that the left-leaning established media invented the Ebola crisis that has deeply damaged his chances of keeping the Democratic majority in the Senate.

“The Ebola crisis… [which] has been the only story here in the United States for the last couple of weeks, is not an outbreak and epidemic here,” Obama complained to his donors at a Chicago fundraiser.

“To give you some sense of perspective, around 20,000 to 30,000 [American] people die of flu every year. So far we’ve got one person dying of Ebola.”

Even though the economy is growing, Obama claimed, “people are still anxious” about the Middle East, Russia’s slow-motion invasion of Ukraine, the Islamic jihadis in Iraq and the media-magnified fear of Ebola.

But “we’ve had one case of a person dying from Ebola that brought it in from outside,” he said.

Obama At Dem Fundraiser: “Whenever People Ask Me How I’m Doing, I Say, ‘Actually, I’m Doing Pretty Good'”…

Apparently he still smokes a lot of weed.

Via The Hill:

Despite a slew of international and domestic challenges, and “a lot of just nailbiter” congressional races on the horizon, President Obama told high-dollar donors that he is actually “doing pretty good” in his sixth year as president.

“Whenever people ask me how I’m doing, I say, ‘Actually, I’m doing pretty good,’” Obama said Monday. “I love the work. It is an extraordinary privilege to every single day work on behalf of the American people.”

Obama acknowledged that there was a “sense of urgency overseas” and that in recent weeks stories such as the struggle with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, and the outbreak of Ebola were weighing heavily on the American people.

Rev. Franklin Graham Not Afraid To Tell The Truth: Islam Is No “Religion Of Peace”…

Considering the Koran is the rantings of a 7th-century warlord who needed a new and very violent “religion” to unite the Arab tribes under his rule so they could conquer new land, how could it be?

Via CNS News:

Reverend Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association,  has sometimes criticized Islam, and in a recent Facebook post questioned whether Islam is “really a religion of peace” noting that the Islamic State, in the latest issue of its magazine, Dabiq, defends slavery and the use of women as sex slaves “as a firmly established aspect of the Shariah.”

Sharia law “guides all aspects of Muslim life, including daily routines, familial and religious obligations, and financial dealings” in most Muslim countries, according to the Council on Foreign Relations.  “It is derived primarily from the Quran and the Sunna—the sayings, practices, and teachings of the Prophet Mohammed.”

In his Oct. 18 Facebook post, Rev. Graham, who also runs the international aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “Is Islam really a religion of peace? Islamic State justified kidnapping women as sex slaves in the new issue of their online magazine. They said that it is a ‘firmly established aspect of Shariah’ and anyone who denies this is denying the Koran.”

“These are the militants who are currently terrorizing innocent Iraqis right now and advancing throughout the Middle East,” he said.  “Does this sound peaceful to you?”

Terror Attack In Canada: Radical Islamist Hits Two Canadian Soldiers With His Car Before Being Shot Dead By Police…

Here in America we call this “workplace violence.”

MONTREAL (AP) — A man who was shot and killed by police after he struck two members of the Canadian military with his car Monday in a city near Montreal had become influenced by radical Islam, an official familiar with the case said.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman David Falls said the suspect “was known to Federal authorities” and “authorities were concerned that he had become radicalized.”

An official familiar with the case identified the suspect as Martin Couture Rouleau, 25, of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, and said he was influenced by radical Islamists. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the case.

Quebec police shot the man after two members of the military were struck by the motorist in a parking lot mall near Montreal. The suspect died a few hours after being shot.

Quebec provincial police Lt. Michel Brunet said earlier that police ended up shooting the man after a car chase in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, about 26 miles (42 kilometers) southeast of Montreal. After the man hit the two soldiers, he fled the scene in his vehicle, triggering a police chase that ended with the man losing control and his car rolling over several times.

Brunet said the man exited the car and was shot. He said they found a knife on the ground but he could not say if he had it in his hand when police fired their weapons. Television images showed a large knife in the grass near his flipped over car.

Police said one of the soldiers was seriously injured, while the other’s injuries were less serious. Brunet said he didn’t know if the soldiers were wearing uniforms at the time they were struck.

Lib Blog: “Brilliant Man” Barack Obama Is Being “Lynched” By Conservatives Over Ebola…

The “Progressive Christian” website Patheos gives us this gem titled:

The EBOLA Lynching of America’s First Black President: Obama, Ebola, Religious Nuts and Racism

Obama is black! They are black! He’s African! They are African! He wants to let them in with no travel ban! He wants us all to die! He hates America! He’s a secret Muslim! He wasn’t born here! He wants to take away our guns!

The white/Fox News/Tea Party/Republican/American reaction to Ebola is moving into the high gear of xenophobia, victimology and fear of the other… and a thank-you-Jesus! phase of naked opportunism: Ebola is just what’s needed to help win control of the Senate for the Republicans!

Once again ignorant white people, who fear the wider world–the world where high speed trains work, there is healthcare for all and a good education is a right–and who dismiss Christian charity as “socialism,” are about to find a new lie to comfort themselves with:

Ebola is President Obama’s fault!

And that’s the “respectable” white Republicans in Congress and Fox News talking. At the millions-strong conspiracy idiot-fringe of course (the sludge that produced and circulated the thousands of online types of silly-to-ugly anti-Obama defamation shown above) there will be talk that “He did it on purpose!”

“He” of course is President Obama. We’ve been watching a slow motion lynching of this moderate brilliant family man, a father, and faithful loving husband for near on 8 years now. He’s been accused by every kind of lie. Now he’s in the White House when God is sending us a biblical-style plague! Need more proof Obama is the devil? Need more proof God is on the side of the Republicans taking back the Senate?

I am a white privileged well off 62-old former Republican religious right wing activist who changed his mind about religion and politics long ago.  The New York Times profiled my change of heart saying that to my former friends I’m considered a “traitorous prince” since my religious right family was once thought of as “evangelical royalty.” [...]

The Republicans in Congress are so dedicated to lynching the President they’ve been willing to shut down our government and risk the future of our economy. Now they are on their knees thanking their white mean “god” for sending Ebola just in time to help them win in November and to counterbalance the facts of Obama’s monumental achievements he’s made while they have been willing to wreck the country to take the black man down.

Moonbat Outraged By “Fascist” Students Protesting Outside Hillary Clinton Event Tries To Lick Them While Screaming He Has Ebola…

Very mature stuff.

Via Campus Reform:

A self-described progressive socialist in Michigan attacked a group of conservative students outside of a Hillary Clinton speaking engagement by attempting to lick them while yelling that he has Ebola. [...]

A group of around 25 conservative students protested the event with campus police and the Secret Service quarantining the students to an area far away from the line of people to get into the event hall. Larry Mitchell, a 63-year-old member of the St. Clair Shores Democratic Club, walked across the street to the group of students.

According to witnesses, Mitchell licked his hand and tried to wipe his saliva off on the students.

Mitchell called the students “fascists” and blamed their political beliefs for the spread of Ebola.

Racist And Xenophobic Harvard University Tightens Travel Ban On Ebola Countries…

Confusion ensues on the left.

Harvard Tightens Travel Restrictions as Ebola Outbreak Worsens –  Harvard Crimson

Harvard affiliates wishing to travel on University business to the countries most affected by Ebola must now obtain the approval of University Provost Alan M. Garber ’76 and their respective School dean, according to a new set of guidelines the University disseminated on Friday.

Unrelated to that approval process, the new policy also mandates that any Harvard affiliate returning from Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia must complete a medical screening with Harvard University Health Services before arriving on campus. Travelers could also be asked to stay away from campus for 21 days, the length of the virus’s incubation period.

The guidelines, outlined in an email from Garber and UHS Director Paul J. Barreira, expand on those detailed in August that asked for Harvard students, faculty, and staff to avoid nonessential travel to the three countries.

In an interview Friday, University President Drew G. Faust added that UHS is also undertaking a set of planning exercises to prepare for a case of Ebola at the University, training staff so that they can properly respond and recognize the disease.

“The CDC is working out its procedures, the President’s sitting in the White House trying to figure out what the next steps are, so we’re all very eager to do the right thing and define the parameters of our engagement,” Faust said.

Ferguson Protesters Smash Pumpkins To Protest Racist Police…

And yes, we are supposed to take these people seriously.

Via WaPo:

You may already know about how the Keene Pumpkin Festival in New Hampshire turned violent over the weekend, with injuries and at least 14 arrests. And you may already know that many people have noted the differing responses to a mass of drunk college students rioting and the protests in Ferguson in the days following Michael Brown’s death.

The pumpkin rioters were mostly white. The protesters in Ferguson were mostly black.

On Monday, a group of protesters armed with pumpkins descended upon the St. Louis Justice Center, a common site for post-Ferguson demonstrations. St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Steve Giegerich was on the scene, and reported that two people were arrested.

Wendy Davis Still Digging: Greg Abbott Is Against Dildos!…

Yes, you read the headline correctly, dildos.

Via Daily Caller:

Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis earlier this month was pilloried in the press for her attack ad that prominently highlighted the fact that her Republican opponent Attorney General Greg Abbott uses a wheelchair. Davis took her attacks to a new level on Monday by strongly implying Abbott would support an interracial marriage ban, despite the fact that Abbott is married to a Latina. But less than three hours later, Davis again topped herself by forwarding an attack on Abbott about an unlikely issue: dildos.

In an emailed press release, Wendy Davis For Governor passed along an article from progressive magazine The Texas Observer entitled “Greg Abbott: Dildos? Against ‘em. Interracial Marriage? No Comment.” The piece attacks Abbott for his supposed reluctance to say whether he’d defend interracial marriage and his defense of Texas’ ban on the sale of sex toys.

Macy’s Bows To Pressure From Leftist Radicals And Stops Selling Israeli-Made SodaStream Products…

Code Pink is giddy.

The department store chain Macy’s has stopped carrying Israeli settlement products of SodaStream, according to the Wall Street Journal. Macy’s has been targeted the past year by pro-Palestinian activists, who have called on it and other major chains to stop carrying the SodaStream home carbonation system and soda flavourings due to the company’s role in the military occupation of Palestine.

This news comes amidst sinking share prices of the company, which earlier this month announced preliminary results for the fourth quarter. It projected $125 million in revenue in the quarter and operating income of $8.5 million. That’s well short of the $154.4 million of revenue and $17.6 million in operating income expected by analysts. In the third quarter of last year, the revenue was about the same, but operating income of $18 million was more than double what it expects this year. Its shares have dropped by 45% so far this year.

Jim Charnier, an analyst at Monness Crespi Hardt, told the Wall Street Journal that he had been expecting a poor quarter when he learned early in September that Macy’s had stopped carrying SodaStream and saw other negative figures from the market.

Macy’s did not respond to questions by North American activists concerning SodaStream.

New Ebola czar Ron Klain was not in attendance at a White House meeting of the Ebola response team on Saturday night, the second powwow he’s missed since the appointment was announced on Friday.

After a day of golfing, President Barack Obama convened a meeting with the task force to apprise him of any developments in the treatment of the two domestic Ebola cases and to discuss emergency preparedness nationwide, according to a White House pool report. Attendees included Vice President Joe Biden, Centers of Disease Control and Prevention director Tom Frieden, several cabinet members and other White House aides. Klain was not there.

How Nice: Denmark Is Offering Free Counseling To Returning Jihadis…

pakistan-child-jihadi

Isn’t this special, it’s like a progressive’s dream come true. (Note the bold lettering in this post.)

Via Washington Post:

AARHUS, Denmark — The rush of morning shoppers parted to make way for Talha, a lanky 21-year-old in desert camouflage and a long, religious beard. He strode through the local mall with a fighter’s gait picked up on the battlefields of Syria. Streams of young Muslim men greeted him like a returning king.

As-salamu alaykum.

Wa alaikum assalaam.

In other countries, Talha — one of hundreds of young jihadists from the West who has fought in Syria and Iraq — might be barred from return or thrown in jail. But in Denmark, a country that has spawned more foreign fighters per capita than almost anywhere else, the port city of Aarhus is taking a novel approach by rolling out a welcome mat.

In Denmark, not one returned fighter has been locked up. Instead, taking the view that discrimination at home is as criminal as Islamic State recruiting, officials here are providing free psychological counseling while finding returnees jobs and spots in schools and universities. Officials credit a new effort to reach out to a radical mosque with stanching the flow of recruits.

Some progressives say Aarhus should become a model for other communities in the United States and Europe that are trying to cope with the question of what to do when the jihad generation comes back to town.

NBC Newscasts Avoid NBC’s Latest Bad-News Poll for Dems…

Isn’t this convenient.

Jeffrey Meyer noted earlier that Meet the Press host Chuck Todd announced on Sunday morning that the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal-Annenberg weekly tracking survey found “the biggest lead we’ve reported yet for generically for the Republicans,” 49 to 44 percent among likely voters (and 45-43 among registered voters). “Here’s what I can tell you. All Democrats agree, it was a bad week for them,” Todd said.

But Sunday’s NBC Nightly News and Monday’s Today couldn’t locate that poll, much like they’ve avoided other NBC News polls that look bad for Democrats.

The numbers came up on MSNBC Monday on Morning Joe and on The Daily Rundown, where host Craig Melvin announced them alongside the curious news that Democrats are leading by ten points among low-information voters. (Is that encouraging?)
