Has Matthews apologized for suggesting gays burned down those churches?
Funny how Matthews quickly assumed gays would burn down black churches but it didn't occur to him that Republican raised, bigotted brats could have done so.

12. Yeah, but Tweety takes a back seat to USA Today.
Their article this morning was lopsided it its defense of "those cute white boys' (my words). Friends gave affidavits on how talented they were and how many friends they had. I was peuking as I read it. If these were 3 poor black boys they would already be off to Gitmo.

friend game!

I had another post and a few were saying they would be getting punished enough and we didn't need to learn anymore about it until they were in Court.

HA!

We need to learn the TRUTH from the "friends."

You can not tell me that some sweet little angels, who never did anything wrong in their lives, just decided to BURN BABY BURN some churches after a few drinks.

18. The reason why they're pushing the "prank" angle
is because the alternative angles are "hate crimes" and "domestic terrorism."

25. Oh, I get it. White college boys are performing pranks when they burn
churches down; and blacks and hispanics are vandalizing when they spray paint the exterior of drab buildings.

32. And black people getting bread in NOLA during Katrina = looting, white
people doing the same = "finding" bread.

It's an easy game, once you know the rules!

24. MadMaddie ~ we are on the same page


I had a post about this and I have heard them called "Pranksters" and "college kids" on television.

Both of those terms are misleading.

In my mind, Democrats and clear thinking adults should not play into those words.

They are arsonist and terrorist in my book.

35. He is a jerk but he didn't make
the accusation. It was a show about the burnings and he was asking questions. Can't remember who the "experts" were on the panel. But tweety mentioned this didn't seem racial as it usually was with white racists burning down black churches. He asked if the baptist church had made controversial decisions lately, would they have upset anyone? He mentioned gay groups along with some other stupid guesses. I remember expecting him to throw in satan worshipers, but he didn't.

Nothing sounded like he thoughts gays did it or that he was actually accusing them. It was in the midst of a conversation about possible motivation. If you look at who the baptists have insulted gays is one of the groups. It was stupid but not any emphasis, not way out of line, just part of the conversation.

I usually only watch him about the libby/CIA leak because he was good at that and takes it to cheney. I mostly avoid him because he adores bush so much. Not sure why I watched this one, if there was libby news around the same time.

I like bashing him when he deserves it, but this just wasn't like it is being made out to be. Frankly gays should be angry and I'm sure they are with the religious and political right using them to whip people into some quasi-moral frenzy. I've never heard of activist gay groups responding with violence so that made it a stupid question, but it was a question and not an accusation.

39. I said he suggested gays did it while ignoring the idea of bigotted brats
being the likely suspects.

So, I don't think I'm portraying it inaccurately. The transcripts are posted in the thread.

his Brokeback Mountain attacks.

13. He was attacking BBM too?
God, what is wrong with this country? That movie touched me more than any recent films that I have seen and it was well done, not the usual Hollywood schlock. Still, if you didn't like it you have to attack it?

So, CM is a little homophobic is he? There has to be something there to use. Has to be.

I guess I am glad I have spared myself his show all these years. Never could stand him. I watched him only once to see old Zell go at him.

8. gays and extreme left wing. he speculated. I guess he gets a pass
because, it's not like he is expected to report on the truth. He's part of the make-it-up crowd. Lying is in. But don't hold your breath expecting anything from the cable news crowd. Rather gets chased and all these clowns keep on ticking.

9. I've heard no apology to gays from Matthews, but that's hardly surprising.
Even though they have suspects in custody, things are on a hair-trigger, and we remain on the highest level of alert...

17. Not even a pseudopology, the kind where they "apologize IF"...
... their statements offended anyone?

Which is, of course, immediately followed up by trying to justify why they spewed their crap to begin with.

Then a quick segue into declaring themselves "persecuted" for having been made to apologize to begin with.

:D:

They're such good kids dontcha know! :sarcasm:

Didn't he also blame liberals too? I thought he blamed both groups. :shrug: Still wrong none the less to blame someone without any sort of proof. I never pay attention to him anymore anyways and you guys should too. My life is much more stress-free without all that crap.

would be dissecting every word for an entire week.

34. EVERY TIME I think Tweety can go no lower...
He comes out with shit like this. No, I didn't know before reading this thread that he said that.

He's more dangerous than Rush. All liberals know what Rush is, but I keep hearing gasps of admiration whenever Tweety says something sane..."He's turned around!"

No, he hasn't. He still has a finger in the air, trying to figure out which way the wind blows.

38. He's "acting out" maybe some guilt. We might find that he's into some
"odd stuff" when he's not doing his show...like Claude Allen...eventually the evil you do sort of eats away at your insides.
