Ed has a great post up about MSNBC’s racist behavior. Here’s part of Ed’s commentary:

Why did they just happen to block all of these speakers? Obviously, it’s not a coincidence. They’re afraid of two outcomes by showing these speakers, the first of which is the exposure of the intellectual vapidity of their repeated accusations of raaaaaaaaaaaacism. The second is the possibility of acknowledging that conservatism appeals to a broad, diverse section of the electorate, which might encourage more people of color to consider its policies, especially with the powerful personal stories told by Mia Love and Ted Cruz. Instead of dealing with that reality, MSNBC chose to deliberately misinform their 15 14 12 viewers. Fortunately, the MSNBC lineup (with the apparent acquiescence of Comcast) is so busy marginalizing themselves that it really doesn’t matter any more.

Ed’s point that MSNBC might be frightened of the thought that “conservatism appeals to a broad, diverse section of the electorate” is worth closer examination.

This past June, I attended the RightOnline conference, where I had a fantastic time. At the Saturday night banquet, I joined Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft at a table that included at least 5-6 women, including several women of color.

The point is that the TEA Party movement has appealed to Americans from a wide array of backgrounds. This isn’t Ronald Reagan’s Republican Party, though there’s no doubt that he’d approve of it.

This is this generation’s conservative movement, a movement represented by TEA Party favorites like Michelle Malkin, Mia Love, Susana Martinez, Scott Walker, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin.

The racist myth that MSNBC is peddling was discredited before most people read their morning papers. Their dishonesty was that blatant.

    If you count the camermen, the spouses, the so called supervisors which should be watching they must have at least 100!

    Of course the reason why they have 100 or 12 is because of stuff like this!

    I tried to tell my very personal story about being raised in a two-parent home with very morally conservative parents who died 1 month apart after 57 years of marriage. However, nobody cared because my desire to allow my taxes to be used to take care of those less fortunate rather than killing people in a war (although an 11 year Marine) branded me a crazy socialist liberal who thinks President Obama is god. Makes you say “humm”. By the way, I also believe that the Bible is infallible. That whole good treatment of aliens because such were some of you must not be true I guess.

    Gloria:

    There’s a problem with the premise of your argument.

    I think the city of Minneapolis should devote it’s taxes to essential functions. No expensive water fountatains for example. The police shouldn’t be wasting time escourting bike riders and disrupt traffic.

    Those are silly things that don’t deserve any support. The point of my comment here is that what you consider wasteful spending might be someone else’s good idea of spending. Because of that we don’t allow people to screen their tax dollars and instead count on lawmakers like Obama to pass and implement a budget that reflects our priorties.

    Technically since you don’t want your tax dollars to kill people in war is it your position that Bin Laden should’ve been allowed to be free to plan and execute another 9-11 attack?

    And if you want to attack somebody for saying you’re a crazy socialist what are you doing to promote that not happening on your side. Like saying Republicans wanted people to die like a journalist was caught on tape saying during the convention.
