Idiot of the week award goes to MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer for being a complete liar. Watch this clip:
Notice Contessa says, “Here you have a man of color in the Presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists.” Now hold on a minute, Contessa. You have made a damning charge and implied racism is the root cause for the Arizona townhall protesters attending the meeting armed. However, the image you showed us hid the race of the gun-toting protester. Take a good look at the armed protester in the photo to the right here.
From AZ Central’s Scott Wong comes a close look at the man shown in the MSNBC smear story. Hmm, he doesn’t look anything like a “white” person. Maybe long exposure to the Arizona sun has given him an especially dark tan. Perhaps another angle will help settle this mystery.
Nope. The well dressed and respectable looking gentleman is still black. Well, maybe he is some whacked out, gun-toting, right-wing, president-hating, self-loathing, racist-lovin’, terrorist.
