The Folks Who Brought You ‘Collateral Damage’ Spotlight MSNBC Pundit For Condoning anti-Slavery Murder


The Folks Who Brought You ‘Collateral Damage’ Spotlight MSNBC Pundit For Condoning anti-Slavery Murder

Hackneyed pundit Tucker Carlson said in 2008 that John McCain’s argument – that Saddam Hussein was a bad man who meant us harm, so therefore we django-unchainedhad no choice but to wage war – was reasonable.

Since that time, Carlson has drifted even further to the right,  going so far as to start a right wing blog called The Daily Caller. That blog has supported all sorts of right wing political war mongering, but writers there are bringing attention to  MSNBC analyst Touré, who said that a slave’s violence against a slaveowner can be morally condoned.

In a recent blog post referencing Quentin Tarantino’s new anti-slavery film “Django Unchained” , Touré wrote, “For the descendants of slaves, who live in a world still tangibly doused in slavery’s residue, watching Django kill his oppressors could possibly feel cathartic. If murder can ever be morally justified by the presence of clear, undiluted, sustained evil — and I believe it can — then it is justified when a slave kills a master.”

Yes, it is justifiable to kill a man who is trying to kill you. It seems quite justifiable to kill a man who has taken away your freedom. And the folks on the right who sat idly by while over 100,000 Iraqis lost their lives over a lie should be more than accepting of such a theory, considering that they have supported murder for far less reasons.

Strikingly, the hypocrisy on the right continues. The U.S. has  bombed Iraq back into the stone ages, but Touré gets a front page article for supporting a slave’s right to kill his master? If the right wing ever wonders why they’ve lost the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 elections, they should look no further than The Daily Caller.

    Those rightwing nuts at FOX NEWS…and their buddies like LIMBAUGH are generally and usually denying and minimizing the effects of white racism, Jim Crow segregation and slavery. It is not surprising that they want to rationalize why a SLAVE in the days of the HELL-O-CAUST known as the TRANS-ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE would not be justified to kill his awful cruel oppressors.

    That movie about the slave revolt “AMISTAD” shows why slaves felt it was necessary to kill their monstrous “kidnappers.” Too many people do not want to face the fact that SLAVERY WAS HORRIBLE, CRUEL, INHUMANE AND UNGODLY.

    Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, Malkin, Coulter, and that bunch of climate change deniers — also try to deny that the Civil War was about SLAVERY. Facts are not important to them.

    The far right white establishment is soo busy fighting reality right now, that they are coming into alot of conflict and contradiction mainly with themselves.

    Whereas they are concerned, there is nothing for the rest of America to do right but just watch. Watch and take notes.

    websites like Daily Caller, The Blaze, & Fox Nation are good fodder for laughs and contempt. Read comments and you’ll get good idea of why these people act this way.

      @Rasheed7 — I agree. I encourage people to check out MEDIA MATTERS also. There are many of the rightwingers who have tried to REWRITE some history books and alter the way the story of slavery and the Civil War are told. Glenn Beck has also tried to alter history…and pretend that “Blacks & Whites” got along most of them time.

      And for further insight into the rightwing nuttery philosophy — read up on AYN RAND and what she preached. They admire and honor this Russian woman…and her ideas are the basis of much of the TEA-PARTY ideology — that is — to protect only the RICH.
