MSNBC Host: Minnesota Voters Are Ignorant Because They’re White

Yes, that’s really what MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell said when talking about Michele Bachmann’s district and why they elect her. You see, it’s because they’re ignorant. Because they’re white.

What makes those voters so ignorant? Well, for starters, they are whiter than the average district. 92 percent white in fact.

What if I were asking why Rep. Charlie Rangle got elected to a 19th term in Congress despite being ethically challenged, and supposed it was because voters in his district are stupid because they’re black?

I’d be called a racist, and rightfully so, because that’s a racist comment. Just the same as suggesting that Michele Bachmann’s supporters in her district are stupid because they’re white.

        So what you are saying is that her mistake, which she immediately corrected, of the location of the “Shot heard around the world” is still imbecilic, but Obama saying that he “has been to 57 states with one left to go and that he will not be visiting Alaska or Hawaii” is a perfectly reasonable statement that he has no need to acknowledge or correct?

          Exactly the point i was going to use. This idiot would not have dared to use the Charlie Rangle with his voters being stupid and black because he would be out of a job. But its ok to say voters that are white and conservative are stupid because they vote for the person that represents their ideas. Fire him and shut him up.

            He questioned the statistics and what he is asking to be examined is the innate racism of her constituents and the people who voted for the Woman.The only person more ignorant than Michelle Bachman is Palin maybe they are tied for that honour.Check your bigotry against the facts people.But I see self examination and truth is not and may never be in your lexicon.

            No, KP. This is the same sh*t that has been going on for 1200 years. Mohammad spewed his anti-human sh*t, then spent the rest of his life sodomizing young boys, and murdering by torture all female babies. He could not bring himself to stick his sad little penis into a female. That is a manifestation of that whole homocentic hatred for women that permeates Islam. Why don’t you provide us with all your proof that Muslims do not hate women? We will wait here, with bated breath, for your copious and irrefutable proof that women are not non-entities and the targets of derision and inhuman abuse under Shar’ia. Go for it, cunt.

        I listened to the WHOLE story and heard EXACTLY what this ignorant moron had to say. And there’s any doubt why MSNBC’s at the bottom of the ratings? How elitist of him to even put this segment together! But then, what else would we expect?

      • Easmith

        Actually he said “The money explains nothing.” I’m not sure that he meant to say that white people are ignorant but the way he presents sounds like he is. Of course, people need to take note that stupid and ignorant are not interchangable. They mean entirely different things. It looks to me like he needs someone to write his stuff for him. :)

    • Mad Voter in MN CD 2

      Guess he forgot about Betty McCollum D, whose district is right next to Bachman’s. She is the one who omitted under God while leading the house in the Pledge of Allegiance, said voter fraud isn’t a problem in her district (Al Franken won, and there is plenty of convictions going on right now around voter fraud from that election), in an October debate declare Al Qaeda not a threat, and the next day a terrorist attack was thwarted in DC; also declared Nancy Pelosi brilliant…

      Yeah, Bachman is the dumb one…Betty McCollum is St. Paul’s village idiot!

      Big 180 McCain voter, your kind did “get” affirmative action.

      “Aides to John McCain initially added Sarah Palin to his “short list” of potential running mates because McCain wanted a woman on the list, according to his campaign manager.

      McCain entered the vice presidential selection process with a list of five possibilities: Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney, Michael Bloomberg, Charlie Crist, and Joe Lieberman, according to Washingtonian’s profile (which isn’t online) of Washington lawyer A.B. Culvahouse, who led the search.

      “As the clock was running out, [campaign manager Rick] Davis say McCain asked to have at least one woman on the short list. His advisers went back to the long list and plucked out Palin’s name,” the magazine reported.”

      • JustRuss

        So you are saying it is perfectly okay to make a racist comment as long as you immediately make a comment that says “wait nevermind, that doesn’t mean anything just because they are (insert color)”

        ??

        Again, if say, Jebb Bush were to say something like this, but replace the word white with the word black in both instances (before and after the cut) it would not be racist?

        or is it racists because its a republican, so obviously they meant it how it sounded?

            Then why bring it up? JustRuss is right. If someone asked me why Snoop Dogg was so stupid, and I said “Well, you know…he’s really black.” That’s racist. To then say “Well, Bill Cosby is black and smart, so maybe…” isn’t a follow up. It’s an “oh crap, I just said something insanely racist” move.

          • http://realitybasedbob.sayanythingblog.com/ realitybasedbob

            Oh Kenny, the newsfudgers opening sentence is a lie and you know it.

            Then the newsfudger wrote:

            “Actually, the ignorance on display here was O’Donnell’s. Bachmann didn’t say the Founding Fathers ended slavery. She said they – in particular, John Quincy Adams – worked tirelessly to end slavery. As NewsBusters reported on January 27, this is technically correct.”

            Actually she did say the founders ended slavery and by calling the guy’s statement “technically correct” he admits Bachmann was wrong.

            The Bachmann said:

            “‘we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forbearers who worked tirelessly — men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country.”

            Kenny, need I point out the newsfudger’s fudge?

            Newsfudgers, Limbaugh, Pox, Hannity, O’reilly, Levin, Ingram, Malkin, that black haired woman, Beck…all lie because they know their audience is to stupid/lazy to do their homework to find out if their wild accusations are true or not.

            Stop defending liars.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4RKUEHF3NG2Z32RT4B5A3Y7HUE Kenny

            Yet it’s not a lie. She mentioned John Quincy Adams (admittedly not a Founder), who was alive as slavery neared it’s end. She was conflating all the men from the signing til the Civil War.

            While the speech is admittedly sloppy, it is accurate. While I don’t normally find anything that she says quote worthy, this one struck me as spot on:
            http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2011/03/15/michele-bachmann-3400-mainstream-media-members-are-part-obama-press-c

            No, no not at all, because we all know there’s a double standard in the media. And of course when President Obama said that there had been a tornado in Kansas, and 10,000 people had been killed, that wasn’t considered newsworthy when he was campaigning for president. And then he said that he was in 57 states and he was on his way to the 58th, and of course that wasn’t considered newsworthy, because as we all know, the 3,400 members of the mainstream media are part of the Obama press contingent. And this is just what we get. So it doesn’t matter which conservative is out there, if, if, if a error is made, in any way, that’s what is stated. They didn’t talk about the great crowds, the standing ovations, the wonderful time that we had in New Hampshire, and that is just the way it goes. I think that that is what we as conservatives understand.

            People make misspeaks. It happens. In everyday life, we write it off as a slip of the tongue, or a brain fart or whatever else. In politics, some of us make a big deal about it. It’s certainly duplicitous as dishonest shills like yourself make a big deal over paltry mistakes like “Oh it was really 2% not 3%” in criticizing an opponent, then you’ll defend someone to the death over saying that a tornado killed 10,000 people, when it was really 12. Or some other such ridiculous nonsense.

            Don’t call other people liars Bob. You have been proven one so many times that you have no standing to cast aspersions on others.

      Progressive Black Liberation Theology is a Marxist teaching. It explains the goals of this president as he continually works to destroy our country.

        If you find the whole video, there is almost 7 minutes of footage. Notice I didn’t say anything about what some, including you, see as a racist comment.

        After watching it again, I stand by what I said prior and will add this. If O’Donnell thinks Bachmann has surrounded herself with a bunch of idiots and thus those that voted for her are idiots because of her gaffes, I’d like to see the 14+ minute video on Obummer. He does nothing to bring up the lies of Bernice Frank or why Rangel was censured. He paints a pretty picture for and of them. Biased typical liberal media and ignorant. So, I could carelessly make the accusation that most of the people that watch this guy, and others in the liberal media spewing one side of the story to make it fit their agenda, as being ignorant as well as arrogant. I could also take that not so giant leap and tie in that most of these people voted for BO who, along with his side kick Joey (it’s a big f’n deal) Biden, has made plenty gaffes as well as monumental mistakes economically, socially, and internationally.

        I get what you are saying about the headline of the blog and what he said right after that. One needs to look at the whole picture and not just the frame.

        By the way, a book written a long time ago has a parable that kinda ties in here…before you pick the speck out of your neighbor’s eye, you may want to pull the log out of your own.

      the wtf should be wtf heading “Again” from Mr Port and myself not listening to the entire recording. Does she make the mistakes because her staff is white…. nope, middle class….nope….because she is well educated…(well maybe Winona State is public higher ed) …. she has a law degree…..
      that can’t be it. Ah Mr. Port tricky.

    • 2hotel9

      Why does your profile list you as “conundrum”? What, exactly, are you hiding?

      • borborygmi

        I use to use conundrum and when this blogged switched over I couldn’t get conundrum up again. I then created borborgymi which is nice term. Why would anyone want to hide something in an anonymous blog? I mean aside from hanni trying to creat havoc.
        I am sorry there is nothing nefarious going on. You will have to look somewhere else to support your paranoia.

        • 2hotel9

          That is what we would all like to know. Why the dead link profile and fake name? What is it you are hiding?

          • borborygmi

            Okay, I guess I will play you game. I am actually employed by the Gov’t to investigate conservative blogs. We do this to find the common thread that points toward a manipulation of the media by using half truths, quotations taken out of context and just plain ass hattery and right wing nuttiness. Sad to say, although we have uncovered the above we can’t quite define the whole as a conspiracy which RUSHBO manipulates because it is the Head Honcho, The Big Cheese we want to take down.
            At one time I asked if you were part of Posse Comitatus or some extreme right wing group and you wrote that “one of them has infiltrated”. Caught!. What you don’t know is that we have been tracking you since birth with the implantation of the chip near the end of your tail bone. We can get you any time WE want. Since your are nothing more then a lower echelon member of the right wingnuts, with a foul mouth and a real bad habit you are not trying to kick, we are really not interested in you YET! We like to hold you up as a Shining Beacon Of Conservatism and Poster Boy to boot.
            Of course all of the above could be pure sarcasm with a bit of poke in the eye humor attached and I am nothing but a middle aged, white, middle class male that could figure out how to bring my original name along when Rob switched to Disqus and Out of Disqus and back to Disqus. You decide and remember WE’LL BE WATCHING!

          • 2hotel9

            Yes, we all know you are a liar. So, tell us what you are hiding.

            That was mildly funny. Not more than a “haha” mind you, but better than your average.

  • Game

    He follows your quote up with “that means nothing”. He says that is not the explanation. He says they are not ignorant because they are white, that means nothing…

    Did you not think anybody would listen to the clip?

    Notice how the discussion was not about how Michelle Bachman was not ignorant, but rather that O’Donnell made a “racist” allegation against her supporters were ignorant.

    Michelle Bachmann is a third term congresswomen from a very conservative district (where she only got 52% of the vote despite the GOP shellacking in 2010). We are only talking about her, she only has an audience, because she makes absolutely ridiculous statements that bring attention to her. If she was interested in honestly, integrity, or even in getting something real done, she would care about the facts. But she is only interested in people like us talk about her.

    And the TEA party cannot see that. Now that is ignorance.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4RKUEHF3NG2Z32RT4B5A3Y7HUE Kenny

      So, then why say it?

      “Why are her constituents stupid? Well, they are exceedingly white. They are also above the national average. But really, I don’t know.”

      Dude, it’s exactly what it sounds like. That he then follows up with “well, maybe not” is ass covering.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-R-Schuh/100001894380487 John R Schuh

      She got just 52% per cent because the Democrats invested a ton on money trying to defeat her. As for her comment about the staff of other congressman, I wouldn’t bet no others don’t know where Lexington and Concord are. Try Charlie Rangel’s staff, for instance.

  • http://realitybasedbob.sayanythingblog.com/ realitybasedbob

    Why yes Mr. Game, you are correct.

    The guy says “that means nothing”.

    But wing nut pundits and bloggers count on their flock to have just enough concentration to read a headline and magically be outraged.

    Very few have any curiosity beyond the talking point.

    • 2hotel9

      Says realitydenyingboob, who spews nothing but Democrat Party talking points and sh*t.

    • robert108

      He said what he really believes, then tried to cover his ass by denying it. Typical leftie tactic.
      “I believe in American values, BUT this guy Marx has some really good ideas.”

  • Neiman

    If he was not making a racist comment, why did he even raise the color of the skin of those that voted for Bachmann at all? It is true he also spoke about white voters in a Democrat Controlled District, but if he had not referred to white people in Bachmann’s district, there would have been no reason to mention skin color in the other district or blacks in a third, except being quick witted, knowing he erred, on the run, he quickly applied some CYA. If he did not mean to impugn the Minnesota “white” voters, why did he mention skin color at all? No answer huh liberals?

    Ignorant means lacking in knowledge, untrained and unlearned. Yet, he acknowledged Bachmann’s educational credentials. Why, if he was going to agree she had this education did he say she was ignorant? Did he mean stupid? Stupid: lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind; dull. No, he could not rightly assert that she could be stupid and have gained all that knowledge. It was obvious his real target was any voter that could support someone he personally hated and he hated that they were mostly white, like him.

    So, what is the answer? He was just rambling, wanting to attack her because he hates her political views, he thus hates her and he was hoping something would stick that he could use against her and in the process he exposed his own, quite typical liberal racism; and, he showed calculated disrespect for any voter that refuses to agree that his is the superior intellect, in short, he is a cheap, liberal, racist, hate filled bully.

    • 2hotel9

      “If he was not making a racist comment, why did he even raise the color of the skin of those that voted for Bachmann at all?” Because he is a racist democrat a$$hole, just like boob?

      • Neiman

        Please stop insulting “a$$holes” everywhere by demeaning them, when you compare them to that demon possessed, pathological liar bob.

        It is not just O.Donnell, all Democrats, all liberals are racists – yes I said ALL, though few consciously believe they are; they believe people of color just cannot compete with whitey on a level playing field – so der old liberul massah’s like O’Donnell and boob wants to keep dem coloreds on der welfare plantations, on the preferences list, so dey be tankful and votes for der massah’s sos dey can gets mo money for doing nothin. <- That is how they see people of color, oh they don't use that language, they would deny ever having those kind of thoughts, but that is exactly as they see people of color, as poor beaten down, rag-headed colored folk that cannot make it in life without their liberal, white help. They all ache to march in Selma again and denounce whitey and feel all good that they are not racists, while they are the true racists.

        Every conservative I know respects every man, irrespective of race; they feel just give them the opportunities and tools and they cannot be just as good as white people, but can achieve even more once the shackles of self flagellation are removed and they recognize they can be all they want to be, just given the chance.

        • 2hotel9

          Yea, at least a$$holes have useful purpose.

        Why don’t you tell us, boob? Is it because you are a racist democrat a$$hole, too? Or because you are a racist Democrat a$$hole also. ‘splain it to us, racist Democrat a$$hole.

      • Neiman

  • Lgbpop

    “What if I were asking why Rep. Charlie Rangle got elected to a 19th term in Congress despite being ethically challenged, and supposed it was because voters in his district are stupid because they’re black?”

    My guess is that’s exactly why O’Dumbbell said it, because he can’t come out directly and say that about blacks; he says something equally stupid about whites and gets the point across by analogy.

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for the black viewpoint from MSNBC or NPR.

    It’s amazing to me how liberal media gravitate to keeping the “Race Game” On.The Democratic Party they exclusively serve would crumble and fall without it. Just convey “Whiitie Is Out To Get You” over and over and over as loud as you can and then simply collect the votes. Sooner or later all issues regarding elections will be heard by voters and we can get on about restoring our counry.

      i wonder if lawrence O’ donnel is the black pope other wise known as the jesuit general
      Understanding that black liberation theology is Marxism dressed up to look like Christianity helps explain why there is no conflict between O’DONNEL “AND [i.e. ‘reverend Wright’s thing] and Farrakhan’s “Nation of Islam.” They are two prophets in the same philosophical (Marxist) pod, merely using different religions as backdrops for their black-power aims. catholics hate protestant i am sure that what he meant by white people are stupid

  • rickystinks

  • Eosbun

    Ignorance is a universal characteristic. Everybody has some area of which he or she is completely ignorant. How many of you know how to drill a well? If you don’t know, you have to find somebody who does in order to get a job done.

    History is one of those areas which you can read all your life and never fully cover the ground. How many of you know the placement and sequence of events ( that is history ) of the 100 Years War?
    How many of you know anything at all about geologic history ( sequence of events ) over the few
    billion years of the earth’s existence? How many of you even care? One area of application to the
    story of climate change is recorded in the 65 million years of cores of Antarctic ice. How many of
    the “global warming experts” have used or even understood this record of climate change before
    they reached and published their fallacious conclusions? Humans didn’t cause those far more drastic climate changes than those proposed by the “global warming experts”, because they were not yet
    in existence. Isn’t it clear that the “global warming experts” are ignorant?

    Whatever way you want to wear it, the shoe can always be put on the other foot of a human.
