Liz Cheney taken out at knees by cons. Will & liberal Reich for hypocritical lies & Rep. spin on Reid – Stephanou
Mickel Adzema says:
it was, but she refused any other way. Harping throughout “This Week
with George Stephanopoulous,” to carry Republican spin points and dirty
water to muddle the otherwise reasonable discussion, apparently even
conservative icon George Will had enough. I can only think she must
hang around a lot of teabaggers considering the level of her illogic. I
wondered if this was our version of Al Quaeda brainwashing that she
could consistently and self-assuredly continue her roundhouse attacks
on anything from the Democrats, never wavering a bit no matter how her
arguments — lacking facts and evidence — were crushed by the other
roundtable members explication of facts, evidence, cause and effect —
you know, the things that are the basis of conclusions, deductions, and
the best solutions.
She would have none of it. Given all the deference of a highly educated
and experienced expert in the great numbers of fields they touched on,
this spawn of Vader continued her Dick-like conclusions and
pronouncements, with nothing at all looking like a confrontation from
But how patient can men and women be? Eventually she was embarrassed
over the Reid puff ball that Republicans have been trying all day long
to turn into a Trojan Horse. The comments below are out of order a bit;
it is something I haven’t figured out yet in using Amplify — how to not
get the highlighted remarks scrambled.
But it was Will who first could take it no more. Liz pleaded about
Reid’s comment that Obama had light skin and used the old-fashioned
word (which by the way is used in the Census being taken because last
time the Census was taken, Blacks wrote it in, even though it was
already there — the Fifties word “Negro.” She just couldn’t get it
through her head that something is not racist if it doesn’t offend the
race it is referring to. Despite a day long litany, from Obama on down,
claiming that what Reid said was inartful at best, and actually it was
an attempt to praise, she insisted that, though she was white, and
though she and other Republicans have supported tea-baggers who have
staged blatantly racist rallies (including the acting out in effigy of
Obama, Pelosi, and another Democrat who was probably meant to be Reid,
chained together, beaten with whips, covered with blood, and howling in
agony, while the tea-baggers laughed — now THAT is racist), it was
extremely irksome to all concerned that this Dick Cheney clone would be
the one to be drumming the beat of horrid racism against a man who had
done nothing as racist in his life as what the typical Republican and
tea-bagger does in a day.
The incongruity of listening to a Cheney pretending to speak up for the
sensitivities of Blacks, when they were not offended, and in fact were
all standing behind and beside their friend Reid, was twisting my brain
in two. I envisioned a bunch of Liz and Dick’s in white sheets — a
veritable crowd of Republican and bagger Klan — whipping and then
struggling with an overwhelmed and helpless little white man, Reid, as
they prepared him and roped him for lynching, saying they were doing
this because he had offended the beloved Blacks of their town by
NOTICING their skin. Claiming it was a sin to notice skin (and *they*
certainly did not notice the color of anyone’s skin), it did not matter
that the Blacks that they routinely look down on themselves were crying
out that he had done nothing wrong. Still, Liz and the Klu Less
Baggers, the KLB, were not going to let the Blacks get in the way of
their getting to do a lynching — oh, it’s not as good because he’s a
white; but since they came down real hard on lynching Blacks, they have
come up with this wondrous idea of lynching the White people who
support the Blacks. That way they can still get back at the Blacks —
true racism — and yet pretend to be supporting them.
How, how twisted.
WILL: Oh, my, no.
CHENEY: … it’s — these are clearly racist comments, George.
WILL: Did he say anything false?
WILL: Did he get it wrong?
I mean, talking about the color
of the president’s skin.
WILL: I don’t think there’s a scintilla of racism in what Harry
Reid said. At long last, Harry Reid has said something that no one can
disagree with, and he gets in trouble for it.
STEPHANOPOULOS: George, you’re shaking your head.
CHENEY: I don’t think racism is OK, George, whether you’re saying
it in private or in public. And the excuse of it by liberals, you know,
is — is really inexcusable.

REICH: Before we banter around or use terms like “liberal elites”
or “racism,” let me just say that race is, unfortunately, still a factor
in politics and in this country. We may not like it; we may not want it
to be. And in the election, people did talk about race. That does not
make them a racist.
