Shocker. MSNBC Dishonestly Edits Video to Make Rick Perry Look Racist (Video)

Disgusting. MSNBC host Ed Schultz used a deceptive edit to distort the content of Gov. Rick Perry’s speech in Iowa yesterday. Schultz claimed that Gov. Perry was calling President Obama a “black cloud hanging over America.” However, the truth was that Perry was talking about the national debt… not Obama.
Breitbart TV reported:

NewsBusters added this on Ed Schultz, “The host edited Rick Perry – in mid-sentence, mind you! – to falsely accuse the Texas governor of making a racist remark.”

  • This will play to the few ignorant people who watch his show. No one else.

    Black Cloud. Fill in the blanks – debt, regulation, ObamaCare ………

  • Major Kong

    That’s the lunatic left for you. Nothing but deceit and lies. This Schultz guy looks like a loathsome little man.

  • Valerie

    Ed Schultz should be fired.

  • MrGoodWench

    Fat Ed heard it as
    “big black CLOWN ”
    and automatically concluded that Perry was talking about Obama .

  • Sasja

    I refuse to play this silly game where any use of the word “black” is racist. Along with our debt, the Evil One and his policies are a giant black cloud hanging over our country. And those of us who do not have a room temperature IQ know this to be true.

  • Major Kong

    I suppose Steve Wynn’s comment about Obama being a “wet blanket” on the economy should have been denounced as it is clearly offensive to chronic bed-wetters. Yeah, just keep playing the “race card” you disingenuous bunch of frauds.

  • Mac in NM

    Ed Schultz misrepresenting something said by a conservative? Tell me it isn’t so!

    Didn’t a nitwit of the same network do something similar to call TEA partiers racists ?
    I believe it was with a gun-carrying member of the TEA party

  • Ella

    Good for you Sasja. They will force us to play the “black” game from now on until Election Day 2012. We will get hammered with it.

    It’s completely water off a duck’s back with me. They can call me racist all they want, I’ll just be smiling in their faces and that will make ’em even madder. I am not a racist, absolutely not, I know that in my heart and that’s the only thing that matters.

  • Molon Labe

    Ed Schultz believes he can be opennly dishonest because his audience is too stupid to question this and because MSNBC is too dishonest to care about its reputation. No wonder no one watches it.

  • Big Al

    what a detestable scumbag. Are there no standards at all over at MSNBC?……yeah, yeah I know

  • Militant Conservative

    Gee I thought I was the racist according to

    Bill mitchel l. I called the president a

    Ignorant black Socialist liar? Am I wrong?

    Calling a terd a terd? Obama is a fundamental error

    Electing Obama is like electing Jeffrey dahmer to watch

    Over the weak. this is sick twisted freak material.

  • [email protected]

    I notice the Perry hater at GPs, who claim they’re not sliming Perry and there’s no sliming of Perry going on in the media, haven’t shown up on this thread yet. I guess they don’t want to admit they agree with Ed Schultz.

    Schultz is probably in the top 5 list of the worst sleazeball pundits ever.

  • Buffalobob

    Do I recall that MSNBC started as Microsoft NBC. Bill Gates it is time you removed all connections real or implied from this dishonest, vile organization.

  • Ipso Facto

    This is simply a very transparent example of how desperate they are getting.

  • befuddled

    I don’t see the problem. A big, black cloud hanging over us isn’t as racist as saying a big, Count Chocula hanging over us. This racist thing is just another way for them to curtail speech against the Obama and his policies. If they straight jacket us they consider it a victory. Too late. Obama’s resume tells me he is a fraud.

  • Rachelle

    Doesn’t make any difference what Perry or anyone else does on race.

    All the blacks will vote black no matter what. Pure racism.

    Look at the sorry pieces of criminal garbage who are in the Congressional Black Caucus.

    Look at the black mayors.

    Look at the black president.

    Forget about ’em.

  • Redwine

    The Left always stoops to lies and vicious propaganda to denigrate and divide, because they cannot tolerate the truth.

    The truth shall set you free.

  • succotash

    Just heard Rove on Greta’s show and why the heck is he such a dang authority on eveything political? Sgt. Schultz is a dweeb and only 6 people watch his goofy show.

  • BurmaShave

    I am shocked, SHOCKED! (If only I were.)

  • tommy mc donnell

    and corporate america will continue to sponsor these lies until americans boycott these companies. the people in the boardrooms will say they have no culpability in something like this. but they do, they have an obligation to their stockholders and the customers to use the money that they make off of us to have the truth told, not deliberate lies.

  • Joanne

    Obama throws Taiwan under the bus, and again passes on creating jobs in America.

    A relative went to Taiwan a few years ago – they really love the U.S. there, but maybe now not so much. I’m sure they must realize that the U.S. under Obama will not come to their aid if China ever decides to attack them.

  • myohmy

    Cheap shot from the liberal media carrying the water for Obama. Tell him nobody watch his show.

  • jony101

    both statements are true, either way you edit it.

    the Obama et al deception show par duex is just beginning.. 😐


  • Valerie

    Ed Shultz has admitted that the editing of the clip was bad. He did not withdraw the false charge of racism.

    This is unacceptable. He should have already been fired.

  • Peter Warner

    I wish there was a way to call the media to account for this libel. They seem to be immune from any responsibility for their lies and propaganda. Certainly, justice will be delivered, but we likely won’t see it openly. Hebrews 10:30 ‘For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs to me, I will recompense, said the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.’

    I would vote for Herman Cain before I voted for Barack Obama. I would vote for Allen West before I voted for Joe Biden. Does that make me racist?

    I would vote for Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann before I voted for John Kerry. Does that make me sexist?

    The Left simply cannot bear to argue or even consider the merit of a conservative point of view. They are depressed, deluded, deranged and dangerous. In a word, demonic.

    Romans 1:28 ‘Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. ‘

    Please pray for America, and for the faithful around the world:

    Deuteronomy 6:4~5 ‘Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.’

    Best regards, Peter Warner.

  • SEHaase

    I remember when Mr. Carter was in the White House there was a big white cloud hanging over America.

  • Rock

    All you have to know about the MSM is they lie like dogs, the why is simple think Soros, and read in the entirety the following link.

    black cloud hanging over America, black tie event, calling the kettle black, blackjack, black-eyed peas, black out, pitch black, black sheep, blackbird, blackballed……… I guess I have made quite a racist rant tonight.

    Now I want to go to a Black Angus for dinner

  • Rock

    Black Helicopters, blackberry pie, Black Thursday (WWII Ger), Blackberry, black Friday ads, Black Beauty, black as night, black bird, black satin, black as Ed Schultz heart. Wow they really need to investigate our language.

  • MrGoodWench

    Is it racist to call Obama’s bus
    ” the big black bus ” ?

  • Sandy

    Obama is worried about Perry becoming the nominee therefore he has to be destroyed. He wants to run against Romney. The Media’s talking points are that Rick Perry is out of the mainstream he’s too far to the right to be elected doncha know. How about Obama isn’t he the one who’s really out of the mainstream?

  • jorgen

    Perry was calling President Obama a “black cloud hanging over America.” However, the truth was that Perry was talking about the national debt… not Obama.

    Was that what he meant? Then there are two black clouds hanging over America!

    Black cloud over America?

    Seems to me that a more apt description if actually referring to the JEF would be a gray cloud.

  • Jim

    Racist? He gets my vote!


    well isn’t odumbass a black cloud hanging over the US????? that’s like saying the sky is blue and grass is green….

  • Rose

    That is beyond Slander and Libel! They need to face CRIMINAL charges for THAT!

  • Rose

    Obama is only 1/8 Black anyway – and Black had connotations of representing Evil and BADNESS long before anyone was using them on Blacks.
    And they use them in nations with significant Marxist Destructiveness where there is no significant Black population, and NO BLACK PEOPLE are in the OPPRESSIVE MARXIST REGIMES.

    The DIM PARTY has been EVIL with their KKK ever since they were “a bunch of white men fighting for their slaver rights” WHEN THEY WERE FORMED. And how long have they been the home of MARXIST PLOTS against America!!!
    But now because the President is 1/8 BLACK – 1/2 WHITE -3/8 ARAB MUSLIM, we cannot talk about BLACK STORM CLOUDS????????? Whether we are talking about HIM OR THE DEBT OR THE UNION THUGS OR ACORN VOTE FRAUD or anything else????????????????

    Reminds me of the time they jumped on Republicans for talking about a BLACK HOLE in SCIENTIFIC TERMS ABOUT THINGS THE HUBBLE TELESCOPE WAS REPORTING! Who was that? Cynthia McKinney or Sheila Jackson-Lee that got all outraged over that “BLACK” REFERENCE???????

    “DALLAS — What do “black hole,” “angel food cake,” and “devil’s food cake” have in
    They’re all racist terms, says a Dallas County, Texas, official.

    One black official demanded an apology, and Commissioner John Wiley Price, who also is
    black, said that type of language is unacceptable.”

  • BuddyG

    Ed Schultz is a typical white person?

  • George

    I would like to kick Ed in the ass!

  • Stuart

    I really enjoy watching the TV show Black Adder. What? I’m a racist?
    No, I said I really LIKE the show. I’m not a racist, but Rowan Atkinson might be.

  • MamaGrizzly

    EXCELLENT post Peter Warner #28. Thanks.

    What a preposterous stretch. These news guys are getting REALLY stupid. It was 100% obvious Perry was talking about the DEBT. And he did a good job. These news monsters are just evil minions grasping at straws . . .

    Having said that, let me say it feels like a great mulato cloud is hanging over America, and when Carter was president, it was a great beige cloud, and when Clinton was president, it was a great whitish-pinkish cloud . . .

  • MamaGrizzly

    In context: bad guys are bad guys, no matter what their race.

    I like what Nazi concentration camp survivor Victor Frankel said when someone asked him if he hated the German race (after he was liberated). He said “there are only two races–the decent and the indecent.”

    So true. At this point we’ve had enough of the indecent kind.

  • mg4us

    As they say Ed. .if the shoe fits wear it. .

    if you think Obama is that Black Cloud go right ahead. . .

    The way he is spending us to “debt” portends “Dark Ages” ahead for our once great Country!

    And as for Shultz. . . what a slimeball idiot. . . seriously, his parents can’t be proud of him!

  • Radegunda

    Hold it: It’s the Dems who hear the phrase “black cloud” and think it must be a slur. Dems hear the word “black” and they think, “oooh, bad!”

  • mg4us

    Bye the way. .Americans are starting to wake up and realize that there is a Big difference between being rained on from a big Black cloud and being pissed on by a narcisitic divisive marxist free-spending lying con-man president

    2012 can’t come soon enough!!

  • mg4us

    The left will not stop. . .

    Look at this. . a Day of Rage on Sept 17. . .from Acorn, SEIO and Obama’s buddies

    The use of the term “Day of Rage” recalls the “Days of Rage” organized in the 1960s by the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization co-founded by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, close associates for years of President Obama.

    Numerous radicals, many with direct ties to Obama, are linked to planned protests and other activism scheduled for the coming months.

    Be on guard!!
