So Scarborough was up after Keith--making fun of McKinney and
her loss in her bid for re-election.
Basically telling her to suck it up and take it. Quit whining already.
Why don't these Neocons tell Joe the same? :shrug:

1. Because she is black.
She may come off as nuts, but worse than Joe?

20. In the good ol US of A these days,
blacks are still easier targets. Sure McKinney comes off badly, and so did Lieberman. But Lieberman didn't lose because he's Jewish.

2. I saw how he was making fun of her.
I had the volume muted but you could tell that's what he was doing. And the whole time he was talking about her, he didn't bother to show one pic of the guy that defeated her.

4. The HUBRIS of him denigrating another Congressperson
is astounding.
The only thing I could think was how can he stand there and denounce her when they found a dead intern in HIS office?

16. THAT was quickly forgotten, wasn't it?
Maybe he HAS to be a hack for the right.

5. She has Black Panthers supporting her
Did anyone see the video of the fight outside after the primary? One of her supporters said, "The whites and the Jews got what they wanted..."

I guess that is what you can expect when you have the Black Panther party supporting you.

(neither is lieberman). both are sniveling little whiners, except cynthia has a goon squad "protecting" her. what a drama queen...she doesn't realize no one gives a damn about her.

7. what happened to her was unfair--and designed to shut her up
I believe the police staff at that building did not like her because of who she is and used their limited power to demean her by asking for her credentials routinely.

By asking for her credentials they were telling her that she did not belong, and that no matter what her position they had power over her.

I'll bet they bragged about it in their lunch room and plotted their actions. And she knew it and got fed up. And responded inappropriately.

And her response cost her the election because the Bush propaganda machine (ie the press) use every opportunity and exaggerate ten-fold to make the left look crazy (Howard Dean, Bill Clinton, now Cynthia Mckinney.)

You suggest: "Shut up and take it." That is the response the neo-cons hope for. And usually get by people who do not see the bigger picture and the grand design (or vast conspiracy).

9. You don't understand.
I don't suggest "shut up and take it".
It was what Scarborough was saying.

11. I read your posts alot...and I know that you are not that type of person
who would suggest that she shut up and take it...I also (tho not very elegantly) was just responding to the Scarborough message...

I am sorry if I offended you.

Oh wait, that was someone else. Who was that, Scarborough? :think:
