**** you, john king

I’ve already ranted about CNN’s John King recently (here and here) and honestly intended ignoring the creature and focusing on media people with a hint of intelligence. But then I read this post on Mediaite tonight (“CNN’s John King Manages To Out-Crazy Birther Queen Orly Taitz In Wild Interview”).

So, King invited the vile knucklehead that is Orly Taitz on his show, and allowed her spew her racist-fueled venom at the President for 12 minutes. Classy.

For fear of upsetting the birther section of his audience, King said this:

Let’s look again at what he said: “This is the cynic in me, Cornel Belcher, the White House says they don’t worry about this, but every now and then, you start to hear things where I think that somebody, quietly, is trying to at least use a subtle message to rebut this. Listen to these several recent snippets of the President and things around him.”

Then he plays clips of the President saying…. “We’re all Americans” … “this isn’t a Democratic or Republican idea, it’s patriotism” … “this is what America is all about” … “the thing about America that is great is that we’re bold, we’re tough…” …. “we showed the world that all things are possible in the United States of America.”

Let’s get this clear – John King is ‘cynical‘ about the President of the United States using phrases like ….“We’re all Americans”???

Why? Well, how can you avoid the conclusion that King doesn’t view this man – you know, the black guy – as a true American? If he did, why on earth would he be cynical about the President of the United States of America using a phrase like “We’re all Americans”? Did he express such cynicism when, say, George Bush talked about ‘we Americans’? No, of course not. So, what innocent explanation could there possibly be for King to be cynical about President Obama using “we” when he talks about Americans?

Sounds to me like John King just unveiled his inner Orly Taitz.

John King? **** you.

    Hey I saw this crap and I couldn’t believe it. Is CNN so desperate for ratings that they would put this on TV? This country has gone to hell in a handbasket. It like everybody has gone crazy ever since president obama was elected. People cannot get over the fact that we have an african ammerican president and its like it is something that folks probably thought they would not live to see but it like it has set off a wave of crazy stuff happening in all the states. The fact that arizona has passed a birther bill tells me this country has gone to hell..

    Now I wanted to share these videos/stories with yall. Remember the colorado mother who wrote president obama saying that her son had planned a trip to washington dc and it was at risk of being canceled b/c of government shutdown? President obama mentioned her in his speech that friday night. Colordo did 3 features of her on their local colorado news. Mother was SHOCKED!!! This was boost obama in colorado for 2012.

    Enjoy

      Me too, Nonie. I saw this crap and I was like WTF? Why give this idiot a pulpit to spew her hate? Father God, for bless and protect our President from all this hate that is surrounding him. Guys, I try to stay strong, but at times the hate is too much for me to take. Why do they hate such a loving, kind man this much? Why, why? Guess i know the answer to that question.

      Problem is Nonie, I thought at least that, after PBO went to Arizona after the shootings, and delivered that awesome speech, and seemed so well received, that the hate would atleast be tempered. Instead, that state has the new bill, waiting for the governor who seemed beside herself with PBO’s presence and graciousnes, to sign into law, to make it that much more difficult for him to run in that state, without virtually showing his “emancipation” papers. So much for gratitude. The election of Barack Obama has pulled the sheets off of racists, and peeled back the wolves clothing of a lot of black people, as well. How can one man, one good man, bring so much division, we ask? No, it is not him. It is the color of his skin (with racists), and the content of his character (with envious black folk). He is a righteous human being with a hell of a lot of confidence unforeseen until now, and they can not handle it. It blows up their stereotypical ideas of what a black man must be- with whites, it’s servile…with blacks, it’s militant. He’s neither and they simply cannot identify. Therefore, f–k em all.

    I am a long time observer of John King, and this is par for the course. I don’t know if he’s a racist, but he continuously has been playing one on teevee. This is irresponsible and purposely damaging and demeaning to the President of the United States, and why is he allowed to continue to air such ugly racist garbage??? He has been doing more harm than FOX, because you expect that kind of junk on FOX but expect some pretense of integrity at least on CNN.

    I just sent John King an email, but now it’s time to get in touch with his boss. I think my anger came out in the email, but I just wanted him to know what I think of him and CNN. I do think he is a racists. So is Donald Trump and that nutcase birther woman.

    Listen, the Tea Party wouldn’t be a movement today if many members of the MSM weren’t Teabaggers themselves. This piece of video by Mr. King just confirmed my suspicions all along.

    I agree with whoever will email these demons, but we also need to be very serious about sponsorship. Color of Change was able to influence the sponsors of that Beck show so much that it has been cancelled. We have to be very serious in fighting the scourge of racism, bigotry and hatred if we ever want to see the country we say we want to live in. If President Obama can go out every day and fight against all the undeserved venom spewed at him, surely we can fight right along with him. We cannot let him flounder all alone. As for boycotting, I gave up my favorite paper towels, Sparkle, which seems such a trivial thing, but its the only item on the Koch businesses list I found that I actually used for years. A pittance to pay to support my president, but I have been ready to do so much more. See, I don’t need a lot of material things, so boycotting economically doesn’t bother me in the least. It was good for the Montgomery bus company situation. Also, I rail against anyone I can contact who disses PBO needlessly, be it via radio, net, newspaper, in person, family. And more recently, I made a couple of pledges to one or two of Democratic committees, but in light of the weak showing of Democrats on whole, I’ve decided all of my campaign donations will go directly to BarackObama.com for re-election. The rest can kiss my ass until they grow a spine and stand beside him. Otherwise, don’t know em.

    King is married to that other one, Dana Bash. Between the two of them, there is enough Tea-crap to fill up a garbage truck. And it stinks on ice.

    President Obama – 1
    King – 0
    Bash -0

    GAAHH rant time!!! WHAT IS THIS BS THIS STRANGER IS TALKING? HE HEARS SOMEBODY PUSHING SUBTLE MESSAGES? When has our president ever been subtle about America and his patriotism? I guess this pundit never listened to Barack Obama’s 2004 Democratic convention keynote address. My fav part and throw water on this pundit’s ridiculous notion.

    “E pluribus unum: “Out of many, one.”

    Now even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us — the spin masters, the negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of “ANYTHING GOES.” Well, I say to them tonight, there is not a liberal America and a conservative America — there is the United States of America. There is not a Black America and a White America and Latino America and Asian America — there’s the United States of America.

    The pundits, the pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States; Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats. But I’ve got news for them, too. We worship an “awesome God” in the Blue States, and we don’t like federal agents poking around in our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and yes, we’ve got some gay friends in the Red States. There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.”
    __________________________________________
    Interesting how people can’t accept a liberal who is not afraid to discuss or show their patriotism. *THROWS HANDS UP,OH NOEZ HE IS TRYING TO COVER SOMETHING!!!*

    It’s like these teapubs can’t handle that they don’t have exclusive rights to patriotism. Anyway, I stand with president Obama who never strays from those words he spoke years ago and continues to speak years later. I couldn’t love and respect him more if he was even a blood relative. God bless him and his family.

    Don’t worry about John King and why are you surprised. John King will surround himself with the folk who shares his view. He is a coward in a sense. He wants to have it both ways. He wants credibility with his fake self. He has revealed who he is to most of you. Some of you commented how someone could not possibly love our President. How can a heart be fill with love when it contains so much hate. A lot of people have hated another person because they don’t look like them. Now that the people that they hated the most have obtain the highest office in these United States,
    they are having a fit that has unleash all vile behavior and this behavior will consume them.
    May God continue to bless the President Obama.

    It’s pretty clear that John King is a republican and a proud member of the Village. But what this demonstrates is that he’s an absolute idiot. Yes, his biais against President Obama may influence him, but I’m absolutely sure he doesn’t begin to understand what President Obama is attempting to do. Jeezzzzz,, Johm, maybe President Obama using UNIFYING themes has to do with his desire to UNIFY the country ? Maybe President Obama is VERY concerned about the hate and division your party is peddling ?

    On a broader note… The cynical in me sees that the media giving a platform to “birthers” recently has been decided at the very high level. The Tea-Party is experiencing frustration right now because the House GoP won’t do their bidding. What better than feeding their personal hate and fear of President Obama to keep them in-line, to prevent them from going third party, and bring them to the polls in droves in 2012 ?

      I think you’re right Lovepolitics. The Tea Party, if left alone, would have fizzled out already. The very premise on which they were supposedly founded “Taxed Enough already” is a bunch of hogwash that has and is currently being exposed as delusional. Their silly rallies are getting smaller and smaller by the week. But the Teabag MSM is desperately trying to keep up this charade to unify the GOP base for 2012.

    Obama has successfully rendered the Tea Party movement impotent through his very strategic moves. When he made the tax-cut compromise with the Repubs in December, he effectively removed the Teabag talking point of higher taxes. Now that the bank bailouts and Auto bailouts have been shown to be largely successful, he has removed that talking point too. The thing they refer to as “Obamacare” resembles “Romneycare” and Romney is a presidential contender. Right now, the Teabag movement has NOTHING going for them except “birtherism” Soon, that too will fade. Trumps “investigators” in Hawaii will come up with NOTHING, and the birthers will drop him like a hot potato, and he will drop them to continue his show which NBC will have been renewed.

    I dropped birther and racist John King an email message letting him know what I think of his support of teabagger hate filled racist theories. He and his wife, Dana Bash spend too much time supporting teabagger thinking. CNN is tabloid garbage.
