Remember when Sarah Palin was directly responsible for shooting Gabbie Giffords? [Darleen Click]
Now Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and even Mitt Romney are responsible for the killing of Trayvon Martin
MSNBC analyst and Democratic strategist Karen Finney disgustingly smeared Rush Limbaugh and several Republican presidential candidates on Thursday, charging that the racist hate of these conservatives had “lethal consequences” in the case of Trayvon Martin, an African American teen shot in Florida. [...]
Since MSNBC chose a Democratic operative to guest host the Martin Bashir show, it shouldn’t be surprising that Finney completely misrepresented the facts. Limbaugh did not create the term “magic negro.” David Ehrenstein did in the Los Angeles Times, March 19, 2007. He wrote of the then-candidate:
But it’s clear that Obama also is running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination — the “Magic Negro.”
Limbaugh repeated the words and used the phrase in a skit on his radio show.
Finney also blamed Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney for the shooting:
So, when Newt Gingrich, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says that, quote, “really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works. They have no habit of I do this and you give me cash, unless it’s illegal,” or Rick Santorum says, “I don’t want to make black people’s lives easier,” or Rush Limbaugh calls a presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama a magic negro, or Mitt Romney says nothing at all, the effect is dangerous.
What happened to Trayvon Martin was a horror and a nightmare no parent should ever experience. But for the Left and its usual suspects in racialist-narrative mongering, the political optics of black teenager being chased down and killed by a “white Hispanic” (my, how the NYTimes had to stretch to get to that term), is just too tempting to pass up.
